Rocky Mountain High

A museum of silence and imagery...

From Lincoln Avenue to Garden of the Gods and all the way back from where I’d started, a charming hippie village proliferates with seriously righteous tie-dye. And like some mutant offspring, it just kept multiplying.
Even as the snowcap milieu put my vertiginous vaults to shame, I somehow balanced my stems atop the semi-rough terrain with very minimal complaint. A garland amongst snaking mountainside sidewalks, the endless roads cemented an impish escapade as a monochrome skyline released a layer of snowfall… blanketing this bucolic scene in a whimsy of white. Never a hindrance to the wiles of feminine philosophy, I ardently gadabout with expensive latte concoctions, feeling the secret rush of my spontaneous Colorado reprieve.

But as the final countdown took my euphoric lift with hollowing reflection, I abort the word goodbye from my vocabulary.

(Faux fur caplet, gloves, and boy's blazer, vintage. T, French Connection. Jeans, Guess. Heels, JC)

For some reason despite the fact i do not completely understand what you mean sometimes with all these big words :P theres something very alluring that makes me want to check up every dozenth word or so to see what you actually mean.

Hi hun!

What a different look layering a fur over a bazer will make. The contrast between the masculine anf feminine fabrics, androgyny at one of its best.

i loved the jeans with the fur! you always have amazing shoes!

great jeans everyone seem to have them now wich is boring because not many people can wear them well.
but you do. and lets remember that basicly the only ones wearing them now are fashionistas and blogers inspired by tallulah etc. imagine the hysteria when the boutiques start selling them

That coat is luscious and those RED gloves are epic. I'm loving this cozy bohemian sexy style. The scenery makes me want to go somewhere else - somewhere far away from where I am. You are amazing.

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!
