Here’s my “Freaky Friday” fashion pick of the week. Scissor handle shoes by designer Peter Popps.

Not sure where I’d wear these? Parent teacher meeting? Blind date? The grocery store? Meh!

I think they’d be good costumes for a movie about the cultivation of cut-throat fashion designers who live in an all white city underneath New York’s 5th Avenue. The evil cult leader stomps around in these ginormous scissor-like shoes slamming patterns and sketches in front of the members and demanding them to produce stylish designs. Some escape the cult through a secret glass elevator that leads to Central Park, but others are brainwashed into conforming and eventually earn scissor shoes of their own. Of course there’s some weird torture involved (like being forced to sleep in cheap, scratchy fabrics), a love triangle, and lots of robots with attitudes.

OK- it could use some developing, but it’s a start. And I’m still half asleep (I stayed up way too late last night watching Netflix), so that’s my excuse. I’m tired! Ha!

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!

Another great weekend and another great photo shoot (thanks to Megan Crothers) for Roadkill Ranch. I was joking around that I like to take pictures of people taking pictures, then it dawned on me; that was actually a true statement. I wanted to share some of the photos from our shoot, but they’re just so good, I don’t want to spoil the surprise of the website debut.

As I was going through my photos, I began to see a pattern of my PSD (Photographer Stalking Disorder). Yes, I just made that up. Maybe it’s not a disorder, maybe it’s just the thrill of capturing the captor?

Maybe I’m on to the next coffee table book? Who knows? But for now, I’m going to open up and say, “Hi, my name is Julie and I’m a photographer stalker.”

Happy Monday!

Movie Time

Fashion Video

For those of you who know me personally, you know that I love to make videos. As a matter of fact, I rarely leave home with out my camcorder. Anyway, a lot of the designers are making videos to represent their collections, and I have to say, that some… well… just aren’t all that. I love Alexander McQueen, don’t get me wrong, but this video doesn’t do the collection justice. It’s more like a promo for a cool, new XBOX game. And…well…I think I can make a better one. There I said it! I’m calling my collaborative friends who also make vids today! So stay tuned for a dose of Roadkill Ranch & Boutique’s fashion film in the near future.  And please leave your feedback about this video.
