Brass flowers and stone


When my sweet friend, Jeanine, designer of Alex and Vina, sent over these gorgeous brass and floral pieces, I got excited about the idea of photographing them in bright light. So when sun finally decided to make a special appearance with its 62-degree temperature, we headed out to let them sparkle.
My first thought was contrasting color palettes by coupling the look with brown heels, but then I couldn't stop looking at me feet when I wanted more focus on the jewelry, so I went back to the closet and back to basics with the discovery of these Steve Madden boots. Her collection is so well conceptualized, and completely committed to enduring repeat wear that I felt compelled to put it in the vein as some of my other go-to favorites... like satin coral for added beachiness. Subsequently pulled it all together with the universal denim style staple and then realized I was mishmashing a little bit, which I kinda love.

(Miss Me denim jacket, Alex and Vina Flowers and Stone ring and White Tridacna Stone Multi Chain bracelet, Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses, Steve Madden A-Yoko boots, Forever 21 tights, H&M ruffle vest, American Apparel bodysuit, Victoria's Secret tap pants)

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 …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

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!
