Glam Rock

01-jennifer-aniston-september-glamour-w352jennifer-aniston

Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to the spotlight, especially when it comes to her personal life. The former Friends star has been on a dusty, rocky road with relationships. But now, it looks like she’s shining like a diamond in the sky. Or, maybe it’s the reflection of her 8 carat diamond ring?

That’s right, 8 carats!!! Actor, Justin Theroux, proposed last year and rumors have been flying ever since. The ring is undeniably gorgeous, and haters everywhere are making their claims about how gaudy and big it is. Really? Don’t they have anything better to pick on, besides Jennifer Aniston’s rock and her new found happiness?

She recently posed for Glamour Magazine and is donning her sparkly friend on the cover. She speaks candidly about her struggles, her highs and lows, and her road to happiness. “If you’re not happy you can become happy. Happiness is a choice.” She tells Glamour.

Check out the September issue of Glamour. Jennifer looks amazing and so does her left hand. Remember to keep shining; true stars shine the brightest in the dark. I guess the haters have their place too.

You’re an inspiration Jen! Thanks for encouraging us to not settle on second best just because things get difficult or circumstances arise beyond our control. Twinkle, twinkle happy star.

Trippy Drippy

97669_2_600

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, “Drip Shades”. Make a splashing fashion statement and block harmful UV rays at the same time. They’re light weight, they prevent squinting and they allow you to stare at whoever you want without them ever noticing.

Perfect for my upcoming Vegas trip. I’ll be able to people watch and check out all of the hot…..OH NEVERMIND!!!

Heart Broken

Christian Louboutin!!!

Why am I heart broken? Well, I stayed up all night contemplating the purchase of these shoes. Let’s see, do I pay rent or buy shoes? Looks like I have to pay the rent. UGHH!!! So irritating!!!

Thanks Neiman Marcus for sending me “friendly reminders”. I don’t think that’s very nice — tempting a poor shoe addict when she’s got kids to feed and bills to pay! Next time just send me a 4,000 dollar voucher and I’ll consider that “friendly”. Until then, you’re not my BFF!

Damion Lloyd

Happy Monday! I’m a little slow this morning, I spent all day yesterday on a photo shoot for our up coming website and then stayed up all night looking through the awesome pics. Since our photographer is so passionate about cool projects, he had the pics to me within hours of the shoot. Such a pro!I

It wasn’t your normal fashion shoot. The location was amazing, our models were amazing and our photographer Damion Lloyd was (IS) amazing!

When I had told him about my idea a few weeks ago, he thought it was crazy-cool. He said, “Julie, I’m going to show up with some cool gels, an open mind and I’ll be ready to feed off your energy.” And that’s exactly what happened, we were all on a creative high, to say the least! I love working with creatively open people and Damion Lloyd is one of my faves!!!

I’m so excited to share the pics, but I have to wait a few more weeks until our site launches. Until then, you can get a hint of the vibe and a glimpse of Damion’s personality in the above pic. And just know, we’re finally making progress on our web store.

I’m so blessed to have such awesome people in my life. I believe in divine appointment and Candace Magoski is Divine! (For reals, that’s her Burningman name.) She allowed us to shoot in her cool studio and as with Damion too, our roots go deep! Thanks to the both of them for living a passionately artistic life and for helping me achieve my creative goals. I’m forever grateful.

Support those who support you and forget about those who forget abut you. Plain and simple.

Have a great week, keep your dreams alive, and surround yourself with people who believe in you.

Tiffany’s Thief

2013-07-03t014338z_1759807542_gm1e9730j0501_rtrmadp_3_usa-crime-jewelrytheft.photoblog600tiffany 6214106B1

 

Tiffany & Co.’s former vice president of product development, Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun has been robbing her employer for some time. She was finally arrested last week and charged with stealing over 1.3 million dollars worth of jewelry. She abused her position to check out merchandise and write off or cancel the costs of the goods, later reselling them to an international jewelry company falsely as her own.

Tiffany’s smelled a rat and started an investigation revealing over 165 pieces of jewelry missing in action. Items ranged from diamond bracelets, earrings and pendants. Ingrid has plead guilty to the charges and faces up to 20 years in prison.

As a business owner for 20 years now, I’ve had my fair share of thieves. The worst part is the betrayal. I think that hurts more than the stolen goods, although in this case, the dollar amount is beyond substantial.

I’m just glad Tiffany’s caught their rat!  And for the record Ingrid, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but not stolen ones. Have fun in prison!

Dear Marc,

Please be the next person to pose naked for this campaign. I’d be more excited to have you on my chest than Miley. I’m just sayin’! Oh, and by the way, I love you!

Candy Man

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week.  A PEZ jacket. Well, that’s one way to make sure everyone sees your rare collection of candy dispensers. I can just see him walking into a bar, “Yeah, that’s right, I’m a collector.”

I’m just curious if they are all full of PEZ candies? I guess I’ll never know, because, my mom always warned me to never talk to strangers who have candy.

Crazy for Clutches

Picture 5elle-givenchy-obsedia-star-studded-minaudiere-xln-lgnPicture 6 Picture 7

I love handbags! This season there’s a lot of emphasis on clutches. They’re small but mighty. Perfect for date night or other special occasions.

This season a lot of designers are focusing on the clutch bag. Almost every major collection features some sort of clutch that translates into a little work of art that you can hold in your hand. I’ve picked a few of my favorite pieces to share with you.

The first pic is Charlotte Olympia’s perfume bottle clutch. OMG!!! When I look at this I cry. It’s so frickin’ adorable! I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to a champagne brunch.

The second pic is Givenchy. It’s perfect for a night out on the town. I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to see a Rock band.

The third pic is Christian Louboutin’s all-over spiked clutch. I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me on an adventure (or at least to an awesome restaurant).

The fourth pic is Kate Spade’s cinema clutch. Really? Can she get any cooler? I am torn between Kate and Charlotte this season. They both bring so much creativity to their designs. Anyway, I hope someone buys this for me and then takes me to the theater. (In New York.)

I hope if you’re reading this (person who is going to buy me stuff and take me places) you realize that happiness is at your fingertips, so get a grip.

Socks Please!

12socks_sandals_copy_2Prada-Fall-Winter-2012-2013-Advertising-Campaign-26

We’ve seen designers and runway shows pairing socks with sandals for over a year now, but this fall it’s hitting mainstream!

It’s so fun and different, and a great way to add personal style and originality to any look. I recently met with one of my vendors who specializes in bath and body products, and this season they’ve added an entire line of colorful and quirky socks.

And guess what? I bought them all for the store. Look for fun prints, stripes, argyles, and comic-inspired hosiery to add to your wardrobe. Pair ankle socks with wedges and heels and pair knee-socks with flats, mary janes and tennis shoes.

The first 2 pics are all of the cute socks I ordered for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique.

The 3rd pic is a great style lesson from a runway show.

The 4th pic is Prada. Need I say more?

Mark my words! Socks are the new black!
