Summer's in the Air

Things are heating up here in So Cal....

ooooooooohhhhhhh I'm so EXCITED!

It's weird how excited I still get for the summer time. I mean, it's not like the 'ol days when I had summer vacation from school...  and I live in LA for cryn' out loud! The land of eternal sunshine!! (sort of, there was that one day when it snowed in Burbank this "winter"....) But none the less, I can't wait for sunning by the pool, firing up the grill for backyard BBQs, frosty drinks with my girls on an outdoor patio somewhere, hiking, swimming, and of course, cute sundresses and sandals...ah summmmmerrrrrrrrrr........

Leopard Faux in Tow...

This morning I had a photo shoot with my girl Kelle to get some more headshots taken... although I absolutely LOVE shooting with Kelle, there's something about taking headshots that is just so...bleh.

There's always so much pressure to get a good one, so many people judging them... and they don't let you wear fake leopard fur in them. Or big necklaces with feathers. Casting directors would think you were a weirdo if you did that... it's more like, "here's me in this colored tank top. Here's me in a different colored tank top." Snore.

But... such is the biz. I get why headshots have to be that way. Whadayagonnado.

So, when I came home with a face full of makeup at 11:30 a.m. I decided to go on and wear my fave furry bolero and feathery necklace... and take some pics where I don't have to look at the camera and I can cover my face with sunglasses. fun! :)

What I'm wearing today:

Leopard Print Bolero

Tribal Necklace; F21

Thrifted Silk Blouse

Black Jeans; F21

Beige Platform Pumps; Santee Alley


Le Poissons

I knew it would only be a matter of time before my obsession with collective fashion websites like LOOKBOOK, Chictopia, and Weardrobe would take me over...

and so it begins.... I got dressed today, took a picture of myself, then posted it all over the interweb.

It's all over folks.

I tested the waters a while back by posting some old shots of my a*voyce designs, but that doesn't really count when "What are you wearing today?" is really the question at hand....and how did today inspire you....

Today I was inspired by this vintage fish necklace that has been kicking around my jewelry drawer for years, it's just so unique. ....also the segments clink around and jingle when I walk... so that's fun. And for some reason the turban headband, cat eyes, and red lips made me feel about as French as my last name.... OUI OUI !!!

What I'm wearing today:

DIY turban-style headband (it literally took 5 minutes to make! check it)

Thrifted Black Shell Top

Vintage Segmented Fish Necklace

Old-Ass ripped jeans : Urban Outfitters

Black Platform Pumps c/o Santee Alley
