I love my job!

I am so incredibly blessed to be surrounded by awesome and talented people. Since I’m on the committee for the 3rd annual Art Walk celebration in Fullerton, I’m excited to see the fruits of our labor come to fruition tomorrow. Representing my store (Roadkill Ranch & Boutique) is one if the most amazing artists I’ve ever met, Mr. Tom Vadakan. Aside from numerous works and exhibits,  he was recently commissioned to do an illustration character by the crew on the set of the upcoming Star Trek movie. It was a gift to their director J.J. Abrams.

Also representing Roadkill Ranch is the super talented Dano Forte. He is a one man band with a huge following. His act “The Juke Joint Freak Show” is so incredible that he recently opened for Social Distortion three nights in a row at The House of Blues in Anaheim.

If you live in the area, I hope you will stop by the Museum Center in Fullerton tomorrow night from 6pm to 10pm and check out all of the incredible artists and musicians that will be performing.

fashion-pills--large-msg-116780658611

Yep, fashion is my drug and I love it!!!

Happy Hump Day!

The Beast

Photo 440

I’m a week late in my daily blog posts for the new year. I have so many things I want to conquer this year. My brain is so full of ideas, resolutions, goals, complaints, etc.,that I’ve completely shut down. I don’t know where to start, yet I still find time to take pictures of myself and play with photo filters. (This one is the “grainy” filter.)

For the past week I’ve been trying to come up with one solid resolution. Last year it was to go through every door that was before me, and that worked on a few things but the KEY word here is FEW. Aside from the normal, eat healthy, lose weight, stay focused, and be a better person goals, I’m going to put it out there and say, my New Year’s resolution (summed up)  is to “Conquer The Beast!”

The BEAST within me, the business BEAST, the technical BEAST, anything and everything that keeps me down, is a BEAST! Therefore, I will conquer it! So, as I sit here staring into my computer camera,  I’m trying to decide which BEAST to start fighting first.

Oh, look at the time!  I better start with the get down to business BEAST! My store opens at 11 and I still have a few errands to run before I head in. (So many BEASTS, so little time!)

Happy New Year and happy Monday!

Spider Style

My 16 year old son recently brought home a “pet” tarantula.

“Look mom, I bought a spider.”

Me: (Totally disgusted, but trying not to take the “shock value” bait.) “Oh cool, let me grab my camera.”

Click, Click, Click!

Me: “I hope it doesn’t bite you!”

Son: “It’s docile mom!”

Me: (Secretly googles the word docile) “Oh OK, well, I hope it doesn’t get loose.” (Desperately  hoping it escapes from it’s jar. Oh,scratch that! I don’t want it loose in the house!!!)

A few days pass and son still hasn’t upgraded the spider’s living space to a larger atrium or box. He hasn’t even played with it, and now I’m starting to feel sorry for the thing. WTF is wrong with me?! I’m feeling sorry for a spider?

Oddly enough, I came across this pic of tarantula shoes. It’s supposed to be a live spider living in the sole. So, I’m going to tell my son today, that if he doesn’t start taking care of his “pet” then I’m donating it to the Fashion Industry. At least if it’s safely in a shoe like this, it will be able to get out a little bit and see the sights, see other creatures and feel a sense of purpose.

T.G.I.F.

City Chic

City Chic
I normally don’t blog on the weekends, but I was in a “sweet street” mood and created this outfit. Maybe I’m channeling vintage Chanel? Maybe I’m getting excited about my trip to NYC at the end of the month? Or, maybe I’m just hungry for macaroons? Really I’m just addicted to fashion and had to get my morning fix along with my  coffee.
Happy Saturday!

Betsey’s Birthday Bash

During New York’s Fashion Week, Betsey Johnson ended her Spring 2013 show with her famous cartwheel and splits. Her show was a crazy, confetti-driven, hot pink bash. With daughter Lulu jumping out a life-sized cake and Cindi Lauper’s live performance of, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, our fearless, crimped-haired, fuchsia-loving leader knows how to party!  Not only was she celebrating her 2013 spring fashion collection, but her 70th birthday as well. Yep, that’s right, 70!!!

But wait!!! There’s more!!!  The Style Network has just signed the icon and her daughter to star in their own reality show called Betsey and Lulu. The show will feature their lives in the ever-changing fashion world, and  is due to air early next spring.

Happy Birthday Betsey, you are such an inspiration!

The Roadkill Girls love you! xoxo

Betsey Needs Us!!!

 

Betsey Johnson is on a mission to find her designs from past decades to feature in her upcoming fashion show. If you have any of her “vintage” pieces, help a girlfriend out by loaning them to her for a few. She’s offering great incentives and you could win a chance to meet the icon herself.

Here’s what she said on Facebook:

“Hey Pinkettes!!!

I’m desperately seeking my best Betsey Johnson vintage clothes from 60’s- Paraphernalia, 70’s- Alley Cat, and 80’s- Punk Label.

Enter on Facebook for a chance to win a ticket to my fashion show and my 70th birthday party. Girlfriends!!! Spread the word!”

Calling all Pinkettes!

Let’s Face It!

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week. These bedazzled face masks by Martin Margiela were actually being showcased on the runways of Paris and Berlin for Fashion Week 2012. OK- so if you’re having a bad hair or make-up day, throw on a jeweled mask, it totally makes sense.

They’re also perfect for a game of Poker or  liquor store robberies. I mean seriously, the thug look with the beanie and stocking is so last year! Wear one of these for your next hold up and add a little sparkle to your dirty deeds.

And, for all of those two-faced people out there who pretend to like you, but then talk smack, give them one of these to cover up their ugly.

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has an amazingly, fun weekend!

To Dye For

When you think of tie-dye, does your mind  immediately go to Woodstock? Hippies? Patchouli and incense? Well, history proves that tie-dye was around before the “free-love” movement was even conceived. This picture above was taken in the 1920′s and designers everywhere this season are tapping into the tie-dye trend but adding a classic twist.

Look for tie-dyed dresses paired with modern belts and jewelry and, tie-dyed blouses with blazers and cuffed city-shorts.

You don’t have to be a hippy to wear the look. Peace!

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week.

“Once upon time, there were three bears and a model.” Hmmmm… you finish the rest of the story, I’m running late this morning. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
