Chop Chop

My obsession with Korean girl groups continues with Brown Eyed Girls singing about lovely lips. Now don't you just have to go and get some Chop Chop Lip Care from Nivea? I know I do!

Today's AdelitaStyle Self Portrait

Making business plans for the new year! This calls for inspiration. Next to me is the CUTE OVERLOAD daily calendar, I'm wearing my TARINA TARANTINO earrings and BEBE ring and of course my little Jelly Bean is bouncing around on the carpet below me. I am wearing a darling little bat-wing sweater that I just got from a sweet little boutique that just opened up on 1959 6th Ave W @ W Crockett St called MEADOW. The prices are great and the atmosphere is darling! My friend Erin even gave me those sweet little deer silhouettes that she bought from the same store! If you are up on the hill in Queen Anne, drop by and see what's in store.

I Want This!

I don't know why I torture myself but, I did it. I typed "cute phone" into my google search bar and there she was... hmmm, tasty Melty Bitter or the tempting Melty Strawberry? I want this phone! A collaboration between SHARP and Q-POT a Japanese accessories maker was what I had been looking for. But to buy the phone I would either have to pay over $800 U.S. dollars or use Japanese carrier DOCOMO which means I couldn't use all of this delicious phone's features: pre-installed chocolate-themed menus, photo frames and wall papers, a 1-seg digital TV tuner, Bluetooth, an 8 megapixel CCD camera and a 3 inches WVGA ASV screen. Only 13,000 lucky girls and boys will devour this phone and I will be here in the states with not even a morsel of girly phones to choose from.

Mogo @ Lily's

On Sunday gobs of people rushed into LILY'S PAMPERING SALON AND PARTY BOUTIQUE to take a look at the latest in trendy tween jewelry, MOGO. And who does a girl party better than LILY'S? It was the perfect fit! And, this time, I was behind the camera as photographer. The sweet little girls were the perfect subjects and made my job ultra easy. Clever girls linked the bands together and made headbands, double bracelets and belts. You can check out these MOGO charm bands and sets of three “Twirly Girl” magnet charms or select single charms to your liking at LILY'S. If you aren't in the area, check them out at NEIMAN'S.

From Red to Black

click on this image for a closer look!

I had to leave my house incognito today. You see, I let my hair go far too long without a professional color. The last "home" attempt granted me with the most awful dry scalp and even though the box showed a beautiful deep dark brown, my hair turned a terrible orange. I simply had to enter my salon Lily's under the radar. I swear to you I did NOT retouch the color in the photos; it was just that embarrassing! But, when I walked out of the salon I held my head high; my hair went from drab to shiny, from limp to lively and from red to black. Now I can show my face AND my hair. Take a tip from me, don't color at home girls and if you're in town call Marley up at Lily's, she really knows how to pamper you beautiful!

A Little Somethin

click on this image for a closer look!

Here's a little somethin I 've been working on here in my studio at home. This Adelita Tee is waiting to be hand-sewn. I embellished this nude tank with adorable gingham and eyelit lace around the arm wholes to give a butterfly look to the "sleeves" and under the neckline for a bib effect. In the center of the bib are three Frida Kahlo buttons. They are from the paintings she did of herself in traditional Tehuana costume.

Holiday Sale

I put together this ad for a cute little outlet store here in Seattle. Sucre Soir has great basic women's clothing, all cotton that wears and washes really well. Because it's an outlet, you get wholesale or better on overstock, off-season colors or discontinued items. I love to stock up on their great t-shirts for layering! And sometimes you will find a fabulous little dress like the one above. I love it paired with a chunky belt! If you don't live in the area, give em a call (206) 352-3763 and they will ship to you!

Heathers, The Original Mean Girl Movie

This morning I woke up and opened my "Daily Candy" and there it was... a still from the 1989 black comedy HEATHERS, the quintessential mean-girls movie. Only the "candy" store was using it to advertise the latest organic cramp ointment. Ugh. If you have not seen it, this is not just a little pms joke of a movie, this is the real deal. Shoplifter extraordinaire Winona Rider stars as Veronica unwilling member of a clique consisting of 3 girls all named Heather, one of which happens to be "love-to-hate-her" Shannon Doherty, who rule the school through intimidation, contempt, and sex appeal. Christian Slater enters as bad boy prankster Jason Dean whose irresistible charm woos Veronica into a dangerous web of murder! Why post this on a fashion blog? Check out their Japanese school girl mini skirts, 80's big hair , Joan Collins shoulder pads and fabulous lycra leggings!

A couple of weekends ago festivities included a swell time at the Rendezvous' JewelBox Theater for the 6th ANNUAL V.V. CHALLENGE! This is my 3rd thriftstore fashion show charity challenge as a judge. This year's event charity was WHEEL, a great organization for homeless women here in Seattle. But don't let the serious nature of the charity fool you; This event is all about fun and frivolity! Contestants walked down the runway of the theatre in thriftstore finds like Pattern Man in his layers of animal print, plaid, stars and stripes. The lady of the evening "Tina Kardashian," the 6th sister, donned a fabulous black velvet floor-length gown with billowy gold lame sleeves, a froed-out pony tail wig and super dark sunglasses. My "date" for the evening Dana even won a prize for best sport. She dug into the grab bag of miscellaneous used clothing and came out looking super cute! All this thrifty madness is emceed by "Candy Cane" and her two man friends, Don and . I decided to join in the fun and wore my hair parted in piggy tails fastened by homemade large black pom poms, a TARINA TARANTINO anywhere flower clip in hot pink sparkled up my side part, TT's skull heart crystal necklace floated over my black l/s dress and leggings, neon hot pink and black ruffled leg warmers graced my sticks and it was demi point all night in my Mercedes tippy toe shoe boots from SHOEDAZZLE thanks to Tina's sister Kim Kardashian!

Rearranging the living room to make way for our tree! The day after Thanksgiving is all about leftovers and Christmas decorations. And, for some of you, it's also about BLACK FRIDAY. I shop all the time, it's what I do for a living constantly looking for props. I think I will sit this shopping day out, too tuckered to deal with the lines and the chaos. I slipped on my footless tights from TARGET, an ancient mini skirt and ballet top, and a THREE DOTS baby doll as I moved my vintage chandelier and little deer to their new spots. Happy leftovers, happy decorating and happy shopping!

Thanksgiving for 3

Happy Thanksgiving! It's been a while since I last posted. I have been working on a little something to be unveiled soon as well as coming down with "the" flu. Oh boy! But, tonight was good food for the 3 of us and the pups had a little turkey too. Thanks to friends like Rosella who provided naughty dessert plates and Erin who warmed our home with lovely stemware from WEST ELM. And a BIG thanks to all of you for your devotion and for being my inspiration to continue this lovely little project I call "Adelita Style!"

Punk icon Iggy Pop of the famed 70's Detroit band the Stooges came to mind today when I threw on my t-shirt from H&M. The torrential downpour that gave Seattle it's reputation is screaming into our ears and eyes much like a punk band. That's why my FOREVER21 harem pants that I just got with Mara were the perfect tuck-in for my vintage boots. And I didn't forget to accessorize, TARINA TARANTINO's Queen Alice Necklace shows how much I heart the Stooges!

Anniversary Notes

This touching photo of my parents says, "I'm so glad I met you and you are the same person in my mind that you were back then." Korea, November 1963, that's when my parents finally tied the knot. It's funny looking at this photo reminds me of the day I eloped with D. I wore a suit almost exactly like my mother's; it was a vintage black linen suit with large velvet triangle collar and a pencil skirt. D wore a vintage suit too but I know he would have preferred to have something like my father's. I called mommy on their anniversary and she had kept herself busy but her sweet voice echoed her malaise, "Your daddy give me a life I never knew. I never thought I be so happy." They said their traditional vows but, death did not part this couple.

SEAN asked the Kahlo family to Sunday brunch last week. Here are some photos of the new studio that Sean and Bennett share. (Bennett did a smashing job on turning the old basement into a great live/work studio!) That morning we had fried chicken and grits as requested by LIL STAR. She took Sean and I back into his photo studio for a quick couple of photos. Here's what I wore: a darling little sweater dress that Cherry gave me over grey leggings and stripey socks to cover my chicken legs, my BETSEY JOHNSON necklace draped over the sweater nicely, a leather jacket and vintage boots carried me through another rainy day and Lil Star did my hair Manga style and added a couple of cherry clips!

Dainty June, Yodelhee Who? The Jen Johnson Interview

I first met up with Jen Johnson when she was the lead designer at EC STAR. I was so delighted last year when she sent news of the launch of her new clothing line for the Summer of 2009; DAINTY JUNE is a playful Indie Designer line, a collaboration with Jen Johnson and the Daking sisters, Jen and Erika. (Check out their sweet ALL MIGHTY website) The name, "Dainty June" is a character from a musical. After I received Jen's email a month or so ago showcasing her "Sound of Music" inspired Fall/Holiday Collection, I HAD to wonder; What is this girls fascination with musicals? And how does it fit in with her new collection?

Adelita: Congratulations on your Fall/Holiday Collection this year!! It's absolutely adorable. I can't stand it!! I am going to post it on my blog immediately. Cute, cute. : ) Any way, couple questions: Are you a crazy fan of The Sound of Music or just all musicals in general? It was my first movie that I ever saw in a movie theatre!

Jen Johnson- I love, love most musicals and I love the movies that were made of them from the 40's to the 70's. The clothes are always my favorite part but I also love the art of set designs and credits!

I'm going to speak for the Daking portion of this trio when I say that our Mom was convinced that we would have become Broadway stars if she had only had the money to send us to those extra sessions at Stagedoor Manor, that and if we had never started dying our hair pink. The simple answer is ALL musicals, well I have to admit we never got that into the newer generation of musicals like Rent, but I can still remember buying a Godspell tape at Tower records when I was about 11, because I thought the cover looked "cool," then listening to it to death! Singing was a huge part of our family. Dinner making, and family drives usually had a soundtrack of Gypsy or West Side Story. Our name, Dainty June, is actually an homage to Gypsy! We named the first collection using names from Gypsy, so it only seemed fitting that we continue with the theme for this season.

A:Who is your favorite character from the Sound of Music movie?

JJ: Didn't everyone want to be Leisl? The dreamy scene in the gazebo singing Sixteen going on Seventeen? Was there anything better when you were little and getting boy crazy?

A: Sooo true, and that white dress! Dreamy... What's your favorite piece from your collection and why?

JJ: I love the Von Trapp Jacket for lots of reasons. The comfy wool, the super cute toggles, It's great fit!

A: It is very sweet. I love the colors too. Now, who would you marry Captain Von Trapp, Christopher Plummer (as in the actor) or Maria?

JJ: The Captain was a little strict for me.... (okay wait, have you seen this? Sound of Music: Central Antwerp I just started crying like a baby!! It's amazing!! The older women with the black hat was astounded! I wish I had witnessed this first hand.) And now back to your question... I'm already married to a handsome man, so I'd probably choose to have Maria. She could wake us up with a song every morning, and make us clothes!

A: Well then how DO you solve a problem like Maria?

JJ: You know, it never really seemed like she was a problem to me! I wish everyone was more like her. I think the nuns were jealous.

A: You said it "sister"! lol. When will your stores be getting this collection?

JJ: Dainty June hits stores early December!

Don't you dare miss it! I've got my little eyes on the “Edward” Sweatshirt, the “Strudel” Dress and the “Brigitta” Jacket. I can almost here the hills singing in the distance...

Flashback: 80's Style

click on this image for a closer look... if you dare!

This is my celluloid. This is me, for real, in the 80's. I was all of 16! I had never exercised a day in my life but aerobics were fast becoming popular, big earrings were all the rage and denim on denim, preferably acid wash, was de rigueur! Don't you just LOVE the black socks? We will revisit this era again. If I can just figure out how to get a vcr recording of my video portfolio on my computer... You won't want to miss that!

Animal Attraction

Marc Jacobs' fabulous silk bunny ears, Erin Fetherston's magical, Peau d’âne inspired glitter masks, Maison Michel's sexy, lacey critters and Moschino's hot pink beany with Minny sprouts have all inspired me to show my animal attraction. Halloween night handing out candy at E's house and hitting Sean's studio party was a great debut for my mouse ears. I think they are too silly for everyday wear. I will switch to the bear ears for my next night out on the town!

Olsenboye at JC Penny this February

This just in from WWD! Please oh please I hope this one pans out. I LOVE the twins and their style. Look at what these two fashionista's have on the horizon.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are expanding their fashion reach.

The sisters, entertainers and marketers almost since their infancy who last week became members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, have signed a deal with J.C. Penney Co. Inc. to launch Olsenboye, a junior brand that will be exclusive to the chain.

The collection will have a major rollout, set for 600 Penney’s stores in February. But the company aims to generate curiosity among teens well before the launch with what amounts to a new marketing approach for the retailer built around previews, limited offerings and digital, guerrilla and viral marketing tactics.

The effort kicks off Monday with an Olsenboye truck cruising around New York selling merchandise and giving out cupcakes, balloons and pins, and empty racks in 50 high-profile stores will be covered in Olsenboye shrouds. Beginning Nov. 6, Olsenboye will be available on and in those 50 stores, including the Manhattan flagship, for a limited time.

There also will be a teaser video for the preview collection on featuring teen characters.

For the full launch in the spring, there will be broadcast spots, magazine print ads and direct-mail pieces. There also will be an interactive digital campaign on, Penney’s teen Facebook page and Twitter.

For the last several seasons, Penney’s has been unleashing new labels and designer exclusives while culling out brands that have lost relevance, striving to modernize its image, catering to more of a teen and contemporary crowd and offering something different.

Among its consumer base, “the propensity for trying and adapting new brands is terrific,” said Liz Sweney, Penney’s executive vice president and general merchandise manager of women’s. “We are stepping up our style to attract a younger customer” with such recent launches as Bisou Bisou, I [Heart] Ronson, Allen B., Oxford & Regent and Twelfth of Eleven, all contemporary lines done in collaboration with designers and brands. Last month, Penney’s launched its first contemporary label, called she said, created by its own design team. Arizona and Decree are among the key junior brands at the store, but the retailer also still sells more traditional lines geared to a more mature crowd, such as Worthington, and has just signed a deal with Liz Claiborne Inc. to be the exclusive retailer for the Liz Claiborne line. “We love our older customer, as well,” Sweney noted.

When it comes to price, however, Penney’s has maintained its moderate, value-driven, promotional posture. Olsenboye, which is the Olsens’ ancestral name, will fall into Penney’s good and better price tiers. Olsenboye is a casual sportswear and accessories collection that includes denim, bottoms, tops, dresses, skirts, shorts, jackets, handbags and shoes. The line will retail from $20 to $50 and is being designed to be mixed to create different looks. The brand also will periodically flow in travel-inspired mini collections, each reflecting the looks and trends of different cities.

“It’s very fun, fashion driven, trendy and wholesome at the same time,” Sweney said.

While it’s got the Olsens’ spirit, it’s not limited to their size, ranging from sizes 0 to 15. “It’s really important that Olsenboye serves lots of girls,” Sweney said. “It’s not just about girls size zero or one.”

The Olsens, who are 23, haven’t penetrated the middle market yet with a collection, but do sell to luxury stores with The Row for men and women, and their contemporary label, Elizabeth and James. But they have been marketing clothes, furniture, cosmetics and other products to mass retailers such as Wal-Mart for years through the company they own and for which they design, Dualstar Entertainment Group.

“Mary-Kate and I watch current trends and see our partnership with J.C. Penney as an opportunity to add something unique to the marketplace, especially in the current retail climate,” said Ashley. “Olsenboye is an extension of the Dualstar brand and we feel this collaboration complements and strengthens our business portfolio, delivering trend-based fashion at affordable prices.”

Regarding the various initiatives to market Olsenboye, Mary-Kate said: “Ashley and I felt strongly about creating a unique experience to reach the teen customer, using relevant marketing strategies that would effectively reach this key customer demographic.”

According to Sweney, the Olsens came to Penney’s with the Olsenboye concept. “They actually contacted us,” she said. “They knew we had a wider reach, that we can provide a great digital experience and that we know how to treat brands and that their brand would be pure in our store” and not be “Penney-ized.”

Penney’s remains mired in the recession as much as any of its competitors. On Friday, at an analysts’ meeting, Myron “Mike” Ullman 3rd, chairman and chief executive officer, said, “Clearly the consumer is still under enormous pressure,” though the company is starting to see “some stabilizing and modest improvement in traffic.” It’s 1 to 2 percent down these days, he said, from more than 3 to 5 percent in the summer, and higher before. “We are a bit more upbeat about the opportunity to sell.…We are confident in our ability to execute against last year’s trends. Competitively, we are doing well.”

The company has been hurt mostly by weak jewelry and home sales, but has seen improvement in the textile, bedding and window-covering businesses in the last 60 days.

Jewelry remains difficult, ahead of its profit plan but behind in the sales plan, Ullman said.

Penney’s officials said the new Manhattan store is exceeding plan and, based on its early success, the company is encouraged to pursue additional inner-city opportunities. According to Ullman, the Manhattan store is not cannibalizing the Bronx or Queens units, and they are producing comp gains. As a result, Penney’s has had its eye on Brooklyn and Dallas (inside the Beltway, where there are two million people). One source said Harlem has been eyed, as well. Said Ullman: “One hundred fifty thousand people have moved into the Dallas inner market. Where we think there is a J.C. Penney customer, we are going after those opportunities.”

However, more capital will go into renovations, the Web and information technology than store openings, considering commercial real estate development has virtually come to a halt due to the economy. About 75 Sephora shops will be installed in Penney’s stores next year, and the company will use the occasion to remodel stores and renovate fitting rooms and bathrooms.

The lack of commercial development “allows us to invest in our existing fleet.…We are looking for opportunities now for inner-city locations, but if we compromise on the box size, it hurts us,” Ullman said.

What the *?! All Grown Up!

On the cusp of her 17th birthday, Miley Cyrus makes her emancipation from mouse ears in "Party in the USA." Twenty years before in 1989 Janet Jackson declared her independence from childhood on Rhythm Nation's seventh single, "Miss You Much." So what pulls a girl into her womanhood? For many of us girls it's a biological change followed by a series of hair, makeup and wardrobe choices that would make our daddy’s blush! As a stylist, I notice EVERYTHING. Was it Miley's "daisy dukes"? Her dark eyes? Those amazing country kicks Did Janet make it happen with her new "exposure"? Her fabulous, sophisticated updo? Was it Antonio Sabato Jr.? It was all of these things and more! But the pièce de résistance? Say “cheese” and smile! No one can smile like a woman, confident, happy and yes, sexy. I am on my way to pick up some Crest Whitestrips right now! Like Yeah!!

Gaultier Target Collaboration

Jean Paul Gaultier getting a smooch from Agness Deyn photographed by: Jean-Baptiste Mondino

This just in from WWD! Jean Paul Gaultier to follow Anna Sui's collaboration with Target.! Let's hope this Parisian can pull off designer cheap and chic. I wasn't too thrilled with Sui's line. Someone needs to alert these fabulous designers that inexpensive trendy doesn't have to mean literally "throw-away" clothing. Target seems to do well with their MOSSIMO line but for the past year or so I have been fairly disappointed in their clothing for GO INTERNATIONAL and it's Designer Collaborations. No photos have leaked yet so, cross your fingers girls!
Target confirmed on Monday that Jean Paul Gaultier will be the third in its series of Designer Collaborations, a relatively new concept intended to boost the discounter’s cheap-chic status.

The program features well-established designers who draw inspiration from a collaborative partner, muse or creative element. Designer Collaborations is separate from Target’s Go International initiative.

The exclusive Jean Paul Gaultier for Target collection will debut on March 7 in more than 250 stores nationwide and on The collection will be available through April 11. Gaultier’s Designer Collaboration will have a tighter distribution than the last participant, Anna Sui, whose collection was sold in about 600 Target units.

Jean Paul Gaultier for Target pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture, the retailer said.

Gaultier, who has always identified with popular culture — producing costumes for Madonna in the Nineties — is known as one of the industry’s master tailors. The designer was one of the first to feature innerwear as outerwear on the runway. He has based many of his collections on street style and ethnic influences.

Target’s Designer Collaborations series kicked off in March with Alexander McQueen, whose McQ Alexander McQueen for Target, was inspired by Liela Moss, lead singer of The Duke Spirit.

Sui followed last month by channeling one of her favorite TV shows, “Gossip Girl.” Sui’s collection included leather jackets for $149.99, metallic jacquard dresses and silk wrap dresses, $59.99, and was in stores through Oct. 17. Target created a pop-up store for Sui at a private four-story town house at 54 Crosby Street in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. It opened to big crowds on Sept. 9 and closed Sept. 11.

It could not be learned whether Target will do a pop-up store for Gaultier as well.

Phillip Lim Flagship Store in Korea

South Korea’s style enthusiasts’ welcome Phillip Lim’s fourth boutique which debuted in downtown Seoul on October 16th. Lim considers this store his “thank you” to his devoted Korean patrons. Lim articulated, “My Korean customers have been very supportive since the beginning so I wanted to provide them with a complete and total vision of the brand through a unique and luxurious shopping experience.” Along with the store opening, Lim was invited to open fashion week (Seoul Collection) with his spring collection earlier this year. Take a look at this master’s amazing fall '09 pieces now residing in this flagship store!

It's all in the eyes. Sometimes the camera is able to capture the soul in side. Jelly Bean is lively and energetic, she only wants your approval; Lil Star has depth and experience beyond her years, her innocence lies beneath; Snoopy is shy and slow, a sleepy pillow. They are all my babies.

I went "boy" when it came time to decide what to wear to the 5th Ave Theater's JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT starring American Idol's Anthony Federov. Here's what I wore: Xuly-Bet recycled men's shirt, vintage wide legged pants, my wedding shoes, SIGAL DEKEL's men's wear tie and fabulous embroidered coat. Lil Star wore an atypically girlie ensemble so I thought it only made sense to "man-up" and be her date.
