Excited to share with you guys a campaign that I styled a while back for Jellypop Shoes for their new FALL/WINTER 2012 collection!
I’ve been blessed to be surrounded by not only creative but uber talented people! And when we get the chance to put our brains together we create, what we like to call, fashion magic!! Always a fun day when I get to work with my close friends/ team – Karla Ticas, David Gallardo, Leibi Carias, & of course Laura Arias!
Only one can wish to have breezy August nights with dinners on the terrace but to be quite honest I have been spending absolutely every single possible moment on set styling for campaigns and different magazine editorials the past 2 weeks.
Here is one of the campaigns I styled for a Japanese hair care line called Hoyu!
I promise to start get back to my regular blogging schedule starting tomorrow! Tons of outfit posts and updates coming your way!

A couple months ago I had the chance to style up a lingerie editorial for Serendipity Magazine. As your Wedding gown should be extravagant…what you wear on the special night of should be as important! I styled up 5 looks for 5 different type of girls…From “The Pinup, The Vixen, The Babydoll, The Showgirl, & The Belly dancer”
My favorite look has to be “The Pin up” look. You cant tell from the first image but the back of “The Pin Up” look was just Oh So Cheeky! I created a cute little bow out of random tulle fabric and these ahhh-dorable cheeky roses on her bum! You can get your Serendipity copy at your local borders, CVS, or Barnes & Nobles!
My goodness..time flies..we will be shooting/styling the next campaign & lookbook for BesoBeso in 2 weeks!
So this is what I LOVE about my job…seeing the FINAL product of our creation. About a month back I had the chance to consult & style up an amazing new jewelry line called Beso Beso. Im sure you guys were aweing over their jewels from my last blog post (click here for behind the scenes post!). As a stylist i’ve seen tons of jewelry lines but by far BesoBeso has to be one of my tippity top favorites! WHY? because 1. they are soooo wearable 2. their rockcandy is edible (silence….) hahah im jk! But it looks so good u want to eat them! 3. They have the best LAYERING pieces. 4. The designer is simply just fahhhhh-bulous darlin’
speaking of THE designer…here is the woman behind these rocks..her name is Jacqueline Brown and she is KILLIN’ the game.
Not only did Jacqueline hire me to style her lookbook/ campaign but also she hired me to style HER! When I met jacqueline I immediately knew by her bubbly & quirky personality that she needed a look that was functional (she’s a working woman..duh!), young & fun, sexy but stylish. So I dressed her in this Leopard print croptop (the back is quite amazing with a bunch of cutouts), highwaisted vintage levi’s cut off shorts, Combat boots with thigh highs, and of course a floppy hat to keep her beautiful face out of the sun!
And of course as always im covered up in a hat and sunglasses to protect myself from the sun as well. I swore when I was a kid I wouldnt be one of those crazy asian women who would slather on SPF every hour and cover herself silly with a sun protector , glasses, and gloves..but darn i think im getting close to it (just missing the gloves….thanks mom for the inspiration)
If you want to find out more info on Beso Beso you can either visit their Website here, or like them on Facebook here, or follow them on Twitter here, (did I miss any other sites? damn social networking..theres too many of u, i cant keep track!)
Fashion video campaign coming near you!
Til’ next time darlins’ *BesoBeso *kisskiss

Yesterday we had to leave our classy, sassy, and feminine style behind and explore our inner bad girl style….so we did! Here are some behind the Scene images.
So a bad girl rocks her leather jacket til death do her part. She layers on her jewelry like theres no tomorrow….there’s no such thing as overaccessorizing in her vocabulary. Stripper like thigh highs socks are a must with short shorts. She aint on the prowl without her leopard prints, fringe, black lace, and cut outs. She wouldNEVER leave the house without her worn out & undone combat boots. She doesn’t care what others think cuss she knows she’s a bad ass chick.
Welcome to the Bad Girls Club.
P.S These are the behind the scenes pictures..will be showing you guys the final images that the amazing photographer Karla Ticas took!
Do I have any followers from Lebannon or Dubai? Our editorials for Prestige magazine is finally out! So excited to see that we were able to get 2 separate editorials in the January issue! “New Years In LA” and “Into the Sunset” .. love how we shot both of these separate editorials on the same day but the mood, lighting, and styling is completely different! Funny thing is I styled this a couple months before I partnered up with Michelle Phan…and I feel like the styling on my NYE glamarous fashion tutorial was inspired by my styling with Prestige Magazine!
The first editorial “New Years Eve” was styled more for your Sex Kitten type of gal~ who loves to be glamorous and sexy. Lots of glitter, bling, sheer, and fur… and YES she loves to show off her legs! Whereas the second editorial “Into The Sunset” is for your hopeless romantic…(the same look as the Tea Party look in my fashion tutorial). A hopeless romantic love love loves her tulle, ruffles and lace!
Although its a bit late for NYE styling…here is my NYE fashion tutorial if you havnt seen it yet!
Big thanks to Christian Louboutin, Zuhair Murad, Brian Lichtenberg, Catherine Malandrino, Camilla Scovgaard, Vin jewelers, Kirsten Leigh Kuehn, Harry Winston, and Cartier for sending us stuff to make this shoot possible!
And if you are out in Lebanon and Dubai~ would love for you to take a peek because its not available here in the US..booooooo!
