Gunmetal Laces

The hillside was far more treacherous than it actually appeared, and even though I didn’t foresee clambering up and down the jagged terrain… my 8-year-old nephew (among others in our brood) got a real kick out of thinking I was some sort of neophyte Pink Power Ranger. Pity I left my blade blaster, metallic armor, and spandex suit at home.

Not sure about spandex, but if you and all your friends want to start your own gang of crime fighting superheros, you'll need some matching outfits... something stylish of course. 

(RTBU sweater, Topshop skirt and Emma Cook boots)

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
