Vegas Here I Come

Tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas for the Project Trade show to show my line, A Ray of Sunshine.  I'm really excited, this will be the first time I'll be showing the line at a show.  
What I like about fashion trade shows:
  • You get to see clothing a season or two before it comes out in stores
  • Looking at peoples outfits from all over the world
  • Getting to order things for wholesale prices
  • The parties that go on afterwards
Anyways, I'll keep you posted on how it goes and try to take as many pictures as I can of new items I find at the show.

hike fan.

Sorry about my absence from the blog, traveling, a break up and a busy new position at work has made me a lazy blogger. One way I have not been lazy, is that I've been getting my butt out of the house and going walking, hiking and running. It's been great for all the new stresses in my life, endorphins and all...
My appreciation for hiking has given me a chance to actually wear hiking appropriate clothing. I will just state, I hate active wear. I fear like a parody of every other woman in LA when wearing it. It's hard to believe that women wear it to nearly every occasion, every errand, everyday. I do however have a new found appreciation for the rugged, grunge friendly vibe of hiking clothes. My former employ, Marc Jacobs, created a gorgeous fall collection for Marc by Marc, rife with rich fabrics, flirty dresses and surprise, surprise, hiking boot chic. I will definitely call on my dear friends at Marc for a favor...
P.S. I already have the Peacock Paisley dress in the top picture.

tough girl chic

In my quest to harden my good girl look, I searched some of my favorite online stores and even stumbled upon some new ones like and Since summer is coming to an end and fall is quickly approaching, its the perfect time to add some leather and black into my wardrobe. Now I know some people are hesitant to look to much like a biker chick(I know I was) but as long as you pair these pieces with some feminine ones the look will be worth the risk. Here are some items I discovered that I thought were very cool. What do you think? What are some of your favorite unknown online stores?
Leather Jacket: Made Me
Leggings: Leyendecker
Vest Bag: Alexander Wang

a cloudy day in summer

This weather has me in an unusual mood. I can't decide if I'm happy about it or not; part of me loves the break from the constant, hot sun, but then the other part of me dreads the end of summer. Even though I'm not in school anymore, the end of summer always brings out sad emotions. Anyways here are a few pics of me posing in a flannel I just bought at the Rose Bowl flea market for $3.00 and a Heritage dress with my Frye boots (bought on melrose like 4 years ago). Of course my puppy Otis had to make an appearance in some of the pics. Pin It
