Adelita Style Hair Tutorial - All Because of You

It's- All Because of You! Watch Puffy Ami Yumi's video too.
Lil Star made this hair tutorial inspired by one of her favorite vloggers! The hair turned out pretty cute. You should give it a try. I was playing around with this teased ponytail look at the Dispatch and a cute boy spotted me - Ruh roh - You might get spotted too!

Jessica Silversaga Makes Dreams Come True

Girl with Wolf II
Sisters III
Girl and Horse
I'm not sure how Silversaga was able to pluck my dreams from my sleep and recreate them as photographs but, I felt connected the instant that I saw them. Her styling is girlish and light, her choice of environment is grand like fairy tales, and the subjects in them (dead or alive) are mysterious and frightening, bold and beautiful. You never know what your dreams will turn out to be but you can always obtain a signed print from Jessica (click on a caption for a quick link) while you're waiting for your slumber's next creation.

iPhone Melts My Heart!

Do you love your iPhone? I do! So, I decided to wrap it in Mupod's melty strawberry chocolate, dangle it with Korean character Rilakkuma's macaroon charm (mine is actually Korilakkuma the girl bear), strapped it on with pink gum and seal it with a Princess Peach case. You can get most of it at StrapyaWorld. Just click on a link!

I Love Liz Lisa

Lady-like Liz Lisa
This Japanese brand's whimsical prints not only hit the fan pages of "cute" bloggers every where, their runway show also provided folly for WWD! I love their flowing fabrics and doll-like prints. This Friday I will be attending a Lady-Party while watching the royal wedding. I wish I had one of these darling dresses, they are perfect for an event with the prince and his new princess, don't you agree?

Today's Adelita Style Self Portrait

Tara and I were discussing our "go-to" outfits. You know, sometimes you don't feel like trying to put together an outfit and you need that easy fix. Another wardrobe stylist on the hill slips on a pair of cowboy boots over her comfy skinnies, while I prefer the rocker look. Today I coasted by with a Stooges tee, Johnny Was black tuxedo shirt, a pinstriped cropped blazer with red silk lining, my favorite Streets Ahead Belt, dirty wash skinny jeans and Harley Davidson motorcycle boots. For a little edge I slipped on my spikey rings from Noir and a giant vintage angel wing ring that Mara gave me. What's your go-to look?

The Nuance of Packaging

KAO Essential Nuance Airy is available at Amazon or Sasa
I'm a sucker for pretty packaging. Instead of grabbing another bottle of shampoo and conditioner at the salon or drugstore, I stopped into Uwajimaya, a Japanese market, and perused their beauty section. This set of shampoo, conditioner and treatment was neatly packaged in a handled box with hearts printed in pink all over. The bottles are a super generous size and shaped like elongated shells. They look fabulous in my shower! Oh, and... yes, they are very moisturizing and smell great.

I Want This!

For Love and Lemon's Mesh Overlay Dress
Designers and life-long friends Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall of For Love and Lemons grew up in cowboy country and hitched their saddles to a bright Southern California dream. It shows. Something about their flowing, no-nonsense pieces evokes images of delicate vintage slips, muted colors faded by a blazing sun all in a heap of bohemian and Rock and Roll layers. This gorgeous dress would be great over a cat suit! Pre-order yours here!

S3- Sample Sale Swag

click on this image for a closer look!
"Hello Little Toads!" One of the many perks that I have as a product stylist is first dibs on the actual product, take-home props and sometimes I even get invited to sample sales. What I like about a sample is that there is a pretty good possibility that it never made it to stores! I love collecting these great Nintendo items and character swag! While Lil Star is a big fan of Yoshi, my favorite is of course, Princess Peach from Super Mario.

Oh! And if you want to see what I have been up to lately, check out this "Super Dooper!!" shoot I did for Target featuring Nintendo's awesome new 3DS! We had to put the models on a spinny platform to get their geeked out reactions.

Today's Adelita Style Self Portrait

Seattle is all about layering. This time of year you simply don't know what you are going to get when you walk out the door. Boots are a good bet because I just know rain will be involved and leggings will block out those chilly winds that are bound to blow through the city. I pair my protective "gear" with a fun tee layered over a leopard print tank and short denim skirt. Voila! I fooled you into thinking that I have a Spring look!

Your Very Own Unicorn

Etsy sells magic.
I've always wanted my very own unicorn. And now, thanks to xmoonbloom, I can get one without casting a spell, sprinkles of fairy dust, traveling back in time or entering frightening unknown territories or mystic lands. You can too. All you need is a pet, any small cat or dog will do. Don't have one? Pull out your little stuffy from the back of the closet and strap on this sweet crocheted bonnet, "an hour of stitched perfection." Voila! Instant Unicorn!
