Hey fellow fashionistas! Are you in Chicago July 18th? I’m speaking at Simply Stylist Fashion & Beauty Conference hosted by Catt Sadler of E! News. There are still tickets left but they are going fast! Click here to purchase now! It’s a great way to connect with people in fashion, fashion styling, entertainment & media! I’m hosting a Breakout Session, “Styling 101.”
Appearances by Jacey Duprie of Damsel In Dior, Joey Maalouf and Cara Santana!
One of my fave styling clients is Bonton. It’s a joy to work with them. Everyone is so nice & over the past 2 years I’ve made real friends there. I’m always so happy to travel to Milwaukee and shoot with them. It feels like home and being on set with them has really helped me grow as a working, professional stylist.
As a wardrobe stylist you never know what gigs will come your way. Recently I got a call to style top model River Viiperi for his 1st trip to the Cannes Film Festival. River really wanted to dress with a bit more polish & swag. For me it was a dream opportunity to work with a rising star.
This is September and I’m supposed to be excited about Fall/Winter ’10 Fashion. Honestly I’m not inspired. The shows echoed the same trends they have the past 4 seasons. 80’s, 60’s circa Mad Men, Classicism, Knitwear. Don’t get me wrong I love fashion & I have already purchased a new pair of boot cut trousers! (Yea! They’re back!) But isn’t there more?
Recently I saw Eat, Pray, Love with Julia Roberts (Mediocre, spent too much time in India, Julia is luminous as always, Viola Davis & James Franco’s talents are wasted.) and it started me thinking. Everyone’s journey isn’t about finding yourself chanting to a cold looking Indian woman while flies swarm around you. Some of us want to Eat, Pray and Love in other ways. Since this is my blog we’re going to CONSUME, WORSHIP & STALK with joie de vivre!
Tender Greens with 4 locations, 2 in LA & 1 in San Diego, and a 5th opening in Walnut Creek, is becoming the hippest, healthiest restaurant chain on the planet. The owners describe it as comfortably urban and the majority of the produce comes directly from farms here in California.
Magnolia Bakery in New York is my happy place. Since 1996 they have been open at the legendary Bleecker St. location. 4 NYC locations later, they have finally opened in LA’s Beverlywood neighborhood on the corner of 3rd & Orlando Av. Have the carrot cake cupcake. It’s all about the cream cheese frosting!
