OC Fashion Week

OC Fashion week was a huge success and took place at various venues around Orange County. I had the privilege of attending and was so excited when I saw my friend, model/actress Joell Posey back stage at the “Emerging Designers” and “Avant Garde” shows. The transformation from back stage to the runway is always so enthralling.
The designs were an eclectic mix of retro and Bohemian and included such names as Luis Valenzuela, Dan Richters and Kerrie Kordowski. This year marks the third annual OC Fashion Week and the founder Julia Tudor has great expectations and higher hopes for next year. Watch out London, Paris and New York, Orange County is “HAUTE”!

Shoe Stalking

Hi my name is Julie Rasmussen and I’m a “Shoe Stalker”.

I look at everyone’s shoes. There I said it!

Today was the first official day of Orange County Fashion Week. Even though Heidi and I had front row seats for the event, I couldn’t help but do a little shoe stalking. My ADD kicked in and the rest is history.

I can’t decide if I like the nude sparkles or the black ankle straps better? What’s your favorite pair?

Rock the Look

Anna Sui brings down the house again during New York Fashion Week. Her 2013 collection was an eclectic mix of Rock n’ Roll, Punk, Rockabilly and Goth inspired looks, with a splash of Pin-Up and ’80s glam. WHOA!!! That was a mouthful. I was so excited to see all of her chunky skeleton jewelry because we actually have similar pieces at Roadkill Ranch right now (yay me).

The Ramones blasted as the cat walkers took the stage with their star-studded looks. It was a concert of  plaids, florals, ripped  fishnets, chunky spikes, buckles and skulls. Every outfit was layered with a mix of good and bad like lace with leather and pretty ruffles paired with torn and shredded pieces.

So, pull out those old Doc Martins and pair them with your boho-chic maxi skirt, add a leather jacket and a big skull necklace and you’ve got the look. Or, take an old party dress, add some fishnet stockings and a denim jacket, then accessorize to the max for a badass day look.

I’m loving all of the options for spring and am slightly reliving my 1980’s glory days. Only this time around, there’s no Aqua Net hairspray  needed for the big hair look. Headbands, cat ears and sparkly pins on tame, colored hair seems to be where we’re heading.

People will always stare, so make it worth their while.

Fashion Is My Drug

It’s officially “Market Week” and I spent six hours with one vendor yesterday hammering out my buy plan for our upcoming web store (www.roadkillranch.com). I’m headed back to LA again today for round two.

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

Happy Hump Day!
