What do we love? Chanel. Who else do we love? Glass Magazine. Why?
Recently I have been making friends with the people over at Glass Magazine. By friends, I actually mean Facebook and Instagram friends. This of course will be remedied by me being awesome in their proximity and vice versa. Life goals people.
I’m especially enjoying the work of the Stylist, who works with Glass regularly, Katie Felstead. She is genius and makes everything from modern, edginess too romantic styles look brilliant. You know I don’t give accolades to other Stylist’s unless they are balls out amazing.
Back to this amazing editorial. Chanel is one of those amazing labels that every country understands. Say Chanel anywhere in the world (except maybe the deep amazon, though maybe there too) and it’s recognized as a brand with integrity, quality that costs big bucks.
Glass Magazine produced a wonderful Chanel editorial shoot that’s soft, beautiful and sexy. Giving us the sense of a gentle and delicate Chanel woman.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Hooray it’s summer! That means fabulous clothes, tons of sun and fabulous editorials. I was thing of something very ‘artistique’, but then I realized not all editorials need to be have to be mind blowing, sometimes you just want to have something simple, and gorgeous.
With that I give a sexy, fun, frolicking editorial from are friends over at Wildfox.
Known for their flirty, simple style Wildfox has always been a West Coast favorite. Their dresses in this editorial are light and flowery, their shirts make me want to wear them. In other words a wardrobe must have. They are my summer clothing staple, and I must have the entire collection. Excuse me while go shopping….
Here’s Lauren de Graaf giving us full on Wildfox girl!
One of the reasons I love foreign shoots is they often bring the classics back. The sexy 1960s with a James Bond look. Italy, France and now Russia. This shoot for Vogue Russia, June 2017 is full of the classic shots we love. Women with over-sized dog on beach. The implied nude shadow photo. All classic swimsuit goodness for summer, but with a vintage feel. And it’s sexy as all damn hell.
I know, I know I have been gone for a long time my dear kittens, but I’m back. Its been a trial by fire. Luckily I made it out alive and kicking and I’m here to give you fashion news, trends and my latest acquisitions!
So….what does everyone want to hear about? Suggestions are always welcome.
I’ve ditched all my vices these days in favor of becoming an adrenaline junkie. There is nothing more exhilarating in my life than being thrown into an extreme situation. I live for it. That’swhy when I get offered a 20 model fashion show, I can NEVER say no.
When I was asked to help out with the amazing yearly Hollyrod Foundation Designcare 2015 event to tap a quality designer I said yes. In the past they have worked with fashion superstars such as Naem Khan and Emmauel Ungaro. Finding a fit in Los Angeles would be difficult but not impossible. I have great connections, and know even better designers. I tapped the stunningly talented Adolfo Sanchez and within 24 hours he and the amazing , Holly Peete Robinson and Hollyrod Foundation were working together.

Once you commit and find someone that is high caliber to a charity event this size things get out of control. First you get the designer, than you get tapped to help, than you are the Key Stylist for 20 models, in 20 looks with two personal assistants. The models were gorgeous, the dresses were beautiful, and made me remember why I got in this business 8+ years ago, and the cause was worth working for.
Backstage was small but we managed to get all the girls in their dresses and looking stunning. All the headpieces, crowns, etc were provided by the lovely Fiori Couture. She makes the most magical fantasy pieces of couture you have ever seen.

Chaz Dean Studio provided Hair and make up s our girls looked professionaly made over. Backstage was cramped but we managed to get everyone in their dresses, head dresses with matching accessories.

We even had fresh flowers thanks to @VSanchezFlowers from Orange county.
Believe it or not this hot mess turns into the most beautiful, and well coordinated show you have ever seen. This is what we managed.
Overall this was a fantastic event to be part of. I got to be head/Key Stylist, had amazing assistants and co-workers .
HUGE thanks to Traci May Wagner for taking over backstage, she is an OG industry professional who works around the world and I was lucky to have her.

Marie Bargas and Drea Johnson for helping me. Dressing models in dresses with 15-foot trains is no joke.

Special thanks to the Hollyrod Foundation for including me in their event. They are amazingly professional, and they are doing their part to help educate families and children with Autism and give them the tools they need to to be strong, and overcome adversity and learning disability.

Oh yes! Hello my sexy kittens. With my fabulous birthday passing (May 24th) I decided it was time for a long overdue update to my site. What you see here is a new format with fabulous, easy to ready fonts, pages, my styling port and more. I will be constantly undergoing construction because I am a total nerd girl and love updating techy things.
Soon there will be more media, videos, photos and blog posts than you can shake your iPhone at.
Much love and feedback is always welcome, though rarely taken seriously.
I don’t think there is a single song I have ever disliked by David Guetta. He has been the mix master to my soul since around 2000 something and he has ‘it’ factor up the yin yang.
To get you inspired and get your Monday freak on I thought I would share a gem. It’s ‘Play Hard ‘featuring Ne-Yo and Akon. Even if the song ate it the video is worth watching.
No damn worries. The song is magic and the video ought to get you started the right-wrong way this morning.
Slam your coffee and put on your headphones because we’re about to bust it ought Guetta style. Video is SFW, BUT has twerking w a side of crunk. Beware the evil boss who doesn’t like booty shakin’ and sick dancers.
Since I am a firm believer in NOT celebrating April Fool’s Day I thought it only fitting I give you something that is true.
True Blood that is.
Yes, True Blood Season 6 promo trailer has been released, and it looks like the writer’s went back to their roots. No sparkling, lot’s of blood, sex and lots of weird. Vampires, fairies and brujas oh my!. Add a few burning buildings and a really pissed off Billith, it seems we are back in business.
But wait. No we aren’t. Here’s the kicker. Season 6 of True Blood doesn’t start until frigging June 13th. And the season will be extra short with a rumored 10 episodes. WTH?
Until then will be forced to watch network TV (except Game of Thrones).
No Billith for you.
Waiting is half the fun tho right? No it isn’t. While you are sitting suffering my dear fangbangers, here’s a promo for you. Enjoy it, because until June we are fangtastically….screwed.
