Hey Cupcake!

Hey Cupcake,

Did you miss me?

I missed you.

I just got back from a buy trip in Las Vegas and I’m so excited about all of the fabulous fall merchandise that’s slated to hit Roadkill Ranch & Boutique over the next month. From gorgeous holiday dresses, to glow-in-the-dark leggings, to western boots, I’m confident our eclectic mix will be more than stellar.

Aside from my crazy-busy daily routine (and distractions) of store stuff, web stuff, phone stuff, and boy stuff, I love to break for photo shoots. Wait! Did I say boy stuff? I meant business stuff.

It all started a few days ago when we received a splendid new dress from Heart of Haute. The beautiful design engraved with rich color combinations of lavenders and mints and etched with gold, took our breath away as we all fell into a swoon. (Just kidding, we all didn’t fall into a swoon, but it sounded really romantic.) As we were admiring our fancy frock, one of the girls said it resembled a cake. Our creative juices began to flow, and the rest is history. We ended up at Hapa Cupcakes in Fullerton the next morning for a photo shoot.

Hapa Cupcakes is the cutest, little cupcakery in town, and the owners are really sweet (pun intended). They were also featured on Cake Wars last June and won 3rd place, so they’re kind of a big deal. Luckily, we know a gal who knows a gal who knows another gal, and we were able to set up a shoot along with a custom-colored cupcake to match the dress.

Isn’t it amazing how one pretty dress can offer so much delicious energy? I hope you enjoy our mid-week blurb on dresses and desserts. So, the next time you get overwhelmed with “stuff”, just take a little sugar break (Did I mention all of their cupcakes are alcohol-infused?). Then, visit  Roadkill Ranch & Boutique to see more of our creative curation.

Stay Stylish,

Jules

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.
