Hey Sunshine!

Designer sunglasses are always so sleek and sexy, but this season it’s all about the embellishments. Back in the late ’80s my BF Simone made me these button sunglasses when I got promoted to a Nordstrom Accessory buyer. They’re so special to me, I’ve kept them stored in my “secret” treasure box for years.

After seeing all of the designer shades that are on the market this season, I remembered Simone’s masterpiece, so I pulled them out to compare. The first picture is Prada, the second picture is Dolce & Gabbana, and the third picture is my original couture design by Simone. I think I like mine the best. Way to go Simone for being 20 years ahead of the trend. (That’s probably why she’s still an amazing fashion industry guru!)  And now I don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for a pair of textured shades, I’ll be sporting my very own. (As soon as I find the missing button.)

Eye Love You!

Ring Your Neck

Prada-Resort-2013-PicturesChanel+Spring+2013+Details+TqmnCDKp9BIl

Spring fashion is full of decorative collars and jumbo, statement necklaces. I recently previewed several spring collections and all of them featured gigantic necklaces or choker-attachments of some kind. The first picture is from Prada’s spring collection and the second picture is Chanel. I love the bold pieces, it’s an inexpensive and quick way to update your wardrobe.

So, invest in a few statement pieces this season. From spikes, to gold, to bold colors to chunky pearls, anything goes. Pair with anything from a collared blouse to a plain, old sweatshirt, and let your style shine through!

Have a glamorous day!

Cheesy

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week. It’s gross and greasy, yet it’s making me hungry for pizza all at the same time.

I think I’d probably wear this with my boyfriend jeans and Converse to a kid’s pizza party. I’m seeing a huge, black olive necklace and some mushroom earrings to complete the outfit.

For those of you who can’t wait to get your very own pizza shirt, just go to Pizza Shirt and order today.

That’s Tight!

I just came across these amazing tights by Indie artist Teja Jamilla. I’m obsessed with cool leg wear and Teja’s designs are far from boring! I love all of the whimsical styles and colors. And who wouldn’t want an Alice in Wonderland/ Steampunk inspired pair of tights?

Check out her Etsy store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/TejaJamilla for more great looks and support an Indie artist this season.

Happy Tuesday!

Monday in Malibu

46443439877041857_exOi8fC3_c

 

I can’t say that rainy days and Mondays always get me down. Today I get to hang out with my BF for some serious shopping and trend-spotting in Malibu. I’m drawing my wardrobe inspiration from this picture. I’m just so excited that the weather has cooled down and I can finally pull out all of my sweaters and coats.

This girl kind of reminds me of me, from the hair to the shoes to the phone. She must be INSTAGRAMMING!

And that’s what I’ll be doing too (in between shopping), so I hope you’ll join me under Roadkill_ranch for the latest finds.

 

Happy Monday!

Prada Preview

Prada-Spring-.Summer-2013-540x329Prada-Spring-Summer-2013--540x360Prada-Spring-Summer-2013-.-322x483Pradas-Spring-Summer-2013-runway-shoes-540x343

Here’s a sneak peek of what went down the runways for Prada’s 2013 Spring Collection. If I were to sum this up in a few words it would be, retro, glam-rock, geisha vibe, with a hint of Mary Quant. How exciting! I’m glad glitter and glam isn’t going anywhere soon, and I do predict an asian fever in the near future.

When making purchases this season, take advantage of the holiday clearance items with rhinestones and glitter that can be resurrected into spring wardrobes.

Stay Stylish!

Orange Crush

photo

Saturday I spent 2  hours purging my 7 year old son’s closet and drawers. He is growing so fast and everything from undies to jammies to shoes to clothes were too small. Yesterday I decided to take him shopping with me so he could try on. I never in a million years would have picked these bright, neon- orange Vans for him, but when he saw them  at Nordstrom, the begging and pleading began.  I noticed my  12 year old niece who was with us became  sad. I thought maybe she was bored or perhaps her iPhone died and she couldn’t instagram, but no! She was sad because she too wanted the orange shoes and they didn’t have her size.

My son insisted on wearing them out of the store and Nordstrom was working on transferring in a pair from another store for my niece. Leave it to the kids to trend spot. Apparently, a slice of orange is a “must have” for young wardrobes.

I hope everyone has a great week. Remember to stay stylish!

Bad Mouth

Crazy-fashion-ideas12

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week. I think there should be a new law that when someone “bad mouths” a fashion boutique, or clothing line, they should be forced to wear this dress around town. (It’s kind of like The Scarlet Letter but with a horror flick twist.)

T.G.I.F.

Shopping Party

Picture 5

 

I’m so excited! Tomorrow night is our annual customer appreciation party. We started having pre-Christmas sales at my store a while back after I got really pissed off with some of the big “After Christmas” sales. One year I  purchased several items before the holidays only to find them discounted the very next day after Christmas. I will never shop there again!! (And no, I’m not going to say the name, I don’t play dirty.) Anyway, I like to give my loyal customers a deal before the holidays when everyone needs it the most.

I hope you all will stop by and receive  20% off every single thing in our store!  Corky from Fullerton Foundry will be making delicious treats, Dena from Sort This Out Cellars will be serving up complimentary wine, Holly from Tres Noir will be sharing her new sunglass styles and world renowned pin-up  and burlesque star Ruby Champagne will be making  a special appearance.

Kick off the season in style!

Grandpa Style!

When 72 year old Liu Qianping went to visit his granddaughter in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, he had no idea fame would find him. His granddaughter Lu Ting, an aspiring fashion designer, was distraught over the cancellation of her model (those flaky supermodels) on the day of the photo shoot for her online business “Yue Kou”. When grandpa showed up to show his support for the clothing line, he tried on a jacket and thought it was funny. One thing led to another and he stepped in as their model.

Now his pictures have gone viral and the on line store is booming. Liu Qianping, now referred to as “MaDiGaGa”, is a star. He has received several modeling offers, and made his first TV show appearance last week.

“I never dreamed of lucky things like these happening to me. Now, my name has spread to everywhere in the country,” he said.

As for now, he is not taking any other modeling jobs but will continue to be the face of his granddaughter’s business.

I love this story, this is something my grandpa would have done to support me.
