Darling Nikkis

click on the photo for a better look!

Meet Nikki and Nicole! Think of them as day and night career girls. I met Nikki while styling a photoshoot. She serves up a smile and a cup o joe while running her own cafe in a corporate building for over 200 employees! She began with a drive thru and was asked to take up residence inside the offices of BDA, Inc. located in Woodinville, WA. Beside her is Nicole. She started working at wine festivals in California's largest outdoor winetasting event! Nicole was pouring me tasty libations at Opolo Vineyards for this years Paso Robles Wine Festival where local artisan producers and wine enthusiasts from across the nation gather. It's fun to meet stylish, successful young girls on my travels. What darlings these darling Nikkis were!

Fancy Pants

While strolling through the Korean grocery store, in between the bedding and the Kimchee refrigerators, I spotted a bin with colorful, ruffley panties with dreamy script. "Dongle Kiss, In my dreams love is very sweet" What can I say, my inner child was calling me!

I Want This!

Le Pied Leger translates to "light-footed" in English. I love these crocheted hand-made shoes! These shoes come combinations of black, fuschia, grape, kiwi, and blueberry. But, I'll have to be patient. They take from 3-4 weeks to be made and are $45. Worth it I would say to be footloose and cute for the summer! Wouldn't you?

Had a great quick jaunt to Cali for the weekend. Happy Birthday Sugeeeee!! And let me give a shout out to Mako too! So what do I wear for the long drive out of the desert and the plane ride back to Seattle? Some great finds from FOREVER 21! One of their great long tanks in a delicious plum color underneath a sweet HERITAGE 1981 super soft printed tee. Meow. I'm wearing my THREE DOT leggings in navy and my XHILARATION ballet flats from TARGET. (Perfect for slipping off in the security line.) It's all about comfort.

Just got some good news! I'm goin back to Cali for the weekend and it's gonna be in the 90's! My outfit is a sunny yellow dress from London's cheeky little line SALTWATER (you can find something similar at their new online store), and underneath are my fabulous GAP 1969 ripped up, torn up jeans worn over my darling little LOREAL "I Pink I'm in Love" nail polish. Yeehaw!

(S)Miley or K(l)amie?

So, I decided to take the lastest issue of Glamour and recreate one of the amazing photos of my latest obsession, Miley Cyrus. This billion-dollar babe posed with her sweet Sophie wearing a blazer and skirt by LOUIS VUITTON, her booties are CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN. For my version, I borrowed Mara's super cool fringed jacket from KATE MOSS TOPSHOP and tied it around my waist and a SHARON SEGAL keyhole dress with my new pointy toed, peep show shoes from SHOEDAZZLE! Miley is definitely WAY more adorable and well lit than me but, I have to say my little Maltese wins by a nose over Miley's Malti-poo. Cuz my Snoopy is CA-YOOT!!

What does one wear to a Planned Parenthood Luncheon with the illustrious Donna Brazile speaking? A fierce 1-arm, 7-banded Special Tee by PETRO ZILLIA, serious "slacks" by LIQUID, a peep toe heel, and of course the classic trench in the new baby doll body. (My mom made this one for me.) What did Donna wear? A fabulous black silk blazer with a white collared shirt peaking out. What else would any fine political stategist wear?

Happy Mother's Day!

My mother had her first child in the 50's. Back then she was a single mom. My father met her while stationed in Korea and fell in love with Tammy and her beautiful child, "Cuttie". She had this shot taken while at a department store and sent it to my father with a note in broken English on the back of the photo. What a lovely picture mother and child in similar dresses sharing the day together.

This is not an image that I felt I could recreate. Just too special. So Lil Star and I decided to make our own version of mother and child. We played Barbies and hammed it up for the camera, the puppies weren't being cooperative which made us laugh. Here's to all mothers and their beautiful babies, laughing together, dressing together, playing together and special days together!

Café Ole or Take it Black

click on the photo for a better look!

Early this particular morning, I was faced with a decision; Do I wear color or put on this city’s uniform standard spanning from brown to black? I wore my favorites and then, I ran into two lovely girls in front of the coffee shop. Natalia and Maiensy stylishly flanked me in a sea of black. And while black can be a strong cup of confidence as these girls prove, I said, “Make mine a Café Ole!”

I wore my turq tank that I customized with a spicy yellow trim bib filled with multi-sized tomato-red buttons, a vintage cardigan with vivid stripes, a TARINA TARANTINO strawberry clip, a NOIR friendship charm necklace, my special edition LE SPORTSAC TOKI DOKI mini purse and my FRANKIE B rainbow jeans. I grounded all of this color with a pair of vintage cream suede HUSH PUPPIES. ¡Vivir una vida colorida! (Life is colorful!)

What's on my super girl body today? I am wearing a SHARON SEGAL secret recipe 50% pima cotton and 50% micro model cotton v-neck in pink (you can find something similar on sale at BLUE JEANS right now) and an EC STAR "destroy" tee under my SUCRE SOIR short sleeve button jacket in emerald green with my LTB skinnies and BUFFALO EXCHANGE boots. The necklace is a little duck that LIL STAR gave me and in my hand is my Nerf-n-Strike Busssaw. POW!

Photography Feature: Johannes Stamcar

These gorgeous fashion editorials are from across the sea. Meet the photographer, Johannes P. Stamcar. During our online interview, Johannes promised, "And of course, I would tell you with pleasure something about this Fashion Shooting, this was also a big history which is also to see on television!" How could I resist telling the story of someone with such adorable english skills. A 36-year-old Austrian, living in Linz and working around the world, Stamcar shoots fashion, glamour and portraits. This production took place in a castle in Germany called “Schloss Mainberg” scouted by Matthias Breitenbach.

The location and photographer weren’t the only impressive components on this shoot. Stamcar’s production consisted of a stellar team! Margarita Ruhl was his model, who took part in Germany’s Next Top Model 2009 hosted by Heidi Klum and was Miss Hesse/Germany 06. (Unfortunately, I don’t think she got super far on GNTM because I can’t see her on their site. Their loss!) The amazing clothes were from Eva Poleschinski’s SS09 collection. (More about her later. She’s a brilliant stylist too!) Makeup styling was by Bettina Strodl and hair was done by Edin Besic.

A television crew filming a story on fashion also accompanied them on set. The TV people aren’t the only ones who will be following Johannes and all of his exceptional team, so will I!
