Action Shots

posted by on 2011.11.30, under Behind the Scenes

I know you guys are so used to seeing me dolled up for the camera for my Outfit Of The Days…but here is the real deal! Here are some random action shots of me and my assistants, hard at work, styling the cover shoot for GENLUX magazine. We collaborated with TomFord for this specific shoot and we were able to pull some of the most delicate and intricate pieces I have ever laid my eyes on! Cant wait to share with you guys the editorial once it hit stands next week!

Have a lovely day!

Adding a pop of sunshine & Sequins in your winter wardrobe can do wonders on a gloomy & cold winter day. Although here in LA the trees are twinkling and the festive holiday music is playing…cannot get over the fact that yesterday’s wether was in the 80s. It seems as if we might be experiencing another warm christmas!

Hope you have a bright & sunny day and when all else fails just add a pop of sunshine & sequins to your wardrobe!

Must confess it was quite hard to get up & going this morning after a 4 day holiday! This weekend was spent wandering about San Francsico city, bundling up by the fireplace, and heartfelt conversations with the family. On our last night together we spent the afternoon at a gallery exhibit and traipsing about the city…I might’ve just left my heart in SF.

A busy busy week ahead…wrapping up some major projects and preparing for my trip to Asia (Korea & Taiwan to be sepcific).

Hope you have a lovely week!

There’s something so nostalgic about Thanksgiving…it’s a time of reflection and a time to give thanks. I’m back in the bay area (where I grew up) with my family as I am writing to you right now. I am beyond grateful for my loving & supportive family, my unbelievably loving fiance, and all of YOU who have supported and encouraged me along the way. You may not think I read comments on my blog, facebook, twitter, & youtube, but I do read EVERYTHING! And although sometimes I may not be able to get back to you..know that your love, support, & kind words have been heartfelt and has encouraged me to continue to do what I do today. so THANK YOU for being YOU!



PS- now put on your stretchy pants and go eat ALOT of food! :)

Yesterday I finally stowed away my summer linens and replaced it with mohair & cashmere.This calls for extra warm & cozy evenings and all the excuse to have a romantic night in!

A couple of November obsessions of mine- 1. Layering socks under boots. 2. Wearing burnt orange & burnt rose is sooo appropriate this time of year. 3. Wearing festive prints! 4. cozying up in anything cashemere!

Homebound it is…will be taking a 5 hour road trip up north with my sis & the beau to be with our family this thanksgiving! There’s something so comforting & nostalgic about going back home for the holidays! Will be uploading a Thanksgiving tutorial first thing tomorrow morning…so keep an eye out for that!
