Juxtapose

Happy Sunday Funday! I’m packed up, fueled up, watered up and ready to hit the road.

The MAGIC trade show is happening next week in Las Vegas and I’ll be buying fall and holiday merchandise for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Yep, I’m heading into 120 degrees weather to buy sweaters and jackets. Yay me!

I won’t be blogging next week, because I’m going to be so busy having fun (I mean working). But I promise to come back with a full fashion report and lots of stories.

Check out our insatgram account @Roadkill_ranch for up-to-the-minute show excitement and more.

I hope everyone has a great week. Stay cool and stay stylish!

Saturday’s Shoot

When Megan Crothers from Megan Jeanne Photography approached me to do a photo shoot for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique,  I had no idea the amount of talent that would surround me. I knew from our conversations that she would be a good fit, and when I finally met her in person, I was sold!  She came to pick up the clothes on Friday night. It was during Art Walk and the store was crazy, busy with patrons and 3 artists. I should have had the items set aside, but time had slipped away from me.

When Megan showed up, I could see the creative wheels in her mind spinning and she began to put together outfits. I knew from the styles that  she was pulling that she “got it”. Not only is she a stylist, but she builds her own stage sets and creates amazing backdrops as well.  Her fashion photography skills emulate a feeling that we strive to translate to our customers.

The first picture was taken in her attic where she hand strung fall leaves and hung them from the beams. I love her ideas, her eye and her personality. And just in time too! We’re getting closer to launching our on line store and Megan’s photography is one of the last pieces to completing our puzzle. I’d show you more shots, but you’ll have to wait until our site is up.

Thanks Megan! And thanks Rachael Barnett for being such a gracious and beautiful model.

Fall Moods

Happy Wednesday everyone! I just got back from a trip to Wine Country. My little sister got married at Trentadue Winery, so I took a few days off to enjoy family, friends and, well… wine. It was a gorgeous event and the timing was perfect. (Hence the recent lack of blogging.) And, since all the leaves are brown and the sky is gray, wait…that’s a Mamas & The Papas song. Whatever!

Needless to say, I’m back in the swing of things and ready to embrace the fall season. We have so many great things in the boutique right now, so I decided to make a slide show just for you! (Just click on the picture above.)

I hope you enjoy it and next time you decide to go for a walk on a winter’s day, stop in and see me.

OK-  I can’t stop singing, California Dreamin’ by The Mamas & The Papas, so I’ve linked it up for your listening enjoyment as well.

Pin Ups and Rock Stars

This week is crazy, jammed-packed with everything that revolves around fashion. Tonight is the Pin-Ups and Rock Stars event at The Roxy in Hollywood. Not only is my boutique, Roadkill Ranch, one of the sponsors, but I get the honor of judging my first “official” Pin-Up contest. It’s not too late to join us, and there’s lots of amazing prizes. Plus, Pin UP America Magazine will be covering the event. Then, I fly out for Vegas first thing in the morning for MAGIC (one of the biggest trade shows in the industry). I can’t wait to scout for awesome merchandise to fill the boutique with. So just in case I’m not consistently blogging this week, don’t worry, I’m fine! I’m just shopping for you (and  I don’t like paying the inflated  internet  prices in Vegas).

Living Color

Color is here to stay! Denim washes and dyes have been popular for a while, and this fall is no different. I just met with one of my key denim vendors and the prediction for color is all the way through next spring. So don’t be afraid to purchase a fun, colorful jean. I ordered mustard and purple velour city shorts and cranberry and green jeans for Roadkill Ranch &  Boutique.  I can’t wait until UPS shows up with the box!

Purple Prediction

Purple seems to be the “new” black on the runways for the sneak peeks of 2013. Major fashion houses like Prada, Louis Vuitton and Chanel are all featuring the color in their collections. When making purchases this season, choose purple for longevity.

Have a great week!
