New Temptations!
Staff Picks from us to you!
In walks Mike with today’s UPS delivery.
new mary smallWhat’s going to tempt us today?” Jenny’s ‘Golden Girls’ wonder out loud to one another.
Doesn’t take long before Mary has found her favorite…. “look at this tunic top!” she exclaims with excitement. “I love the mixed textures and prints. So unique and it’s already layered for you. I could wear this with jeans or velvet pants. It’s lightweight and would pack easily too. Might just have to take this with me on my upcoming trip in November.”
new julie smallJulie agrees with Mary’s choice but has a pic of her own. “The tunic is cute,” she agrees, “but look at this cowl neck sweater. Kind of has my name written all over it. Love the mixture of animal print and solid. Would be so cute with our herringbone black jeans.”
There’s lots to tempt us all in the new shipment from Alison Sheri. Cardigans, pullovers and tops galore. Come look before they all get scooped up!

New to Sound Styles this past year is the JP&Mattie Collection or, as they like to say, “clothes with affection.”
Both born to textile familes in Europe, Jean Pierre Roditi and Mattie Ilel grew up immersed in a world of color, texture, fabric, and design in Paris and Istanbul in the 1960’s. After graduating from their respective design colleges, the two have been working as fashion designers in Paris and Los Angeles for all the years inbetween.
So… it was with great “affection” that we chose a JP&Mattie ensemble to adorn our entry for the Autumn Scarecrow competition, sponsored by the Edmonds Historical Museum.

Meet Miss Scarry PoppinsWell…. perhaps not so much scarry but more eccentric, artistic with a flair for the dramatic. After all, it was the Bohemian flair to the collection that attracted her to them in the first place. All the fabrics used are from natural fibers. The clothes are hand-dyed in root and vegetable dyes and dried out in the sun giving them their soft, slightly grayed and Artisan look. The styling is timeless with handcrafted details.
A passion for artisan clothes with a twist, a labor of love for their “métier” and great affection for one another are what JP&Mattie are all about.
Now that you’ve been properly introduced, please come visit Sound Styles and see more of the JP&Mattie collection.

CORRECTION: The Autumn Scarecrow competition is sponsored by the Edmonds Historical Museum, not the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce as we originally posted. Our apologies.
