Gone Fishing

1234272_687722494589173_1767607208_n

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, a fish bowl earring/hat. What possesses a man to wear this?

It must make him happy. I guess if something brings you that much happiness, you do everything in your power to keep it near and dear to you. Or, maybe he didn’t trust his neighbors enough to feed his fish while he went on vacation, so he just took them with him?

Thanks to one of my BFs, Simone, for sending this over. It’s one of three things that keep us bonded- freaks. The other two are fashion and food. We can seriously stay up all night talking about fashion, food and freaks.

I’d like to invite this man to our next girl’s night out. I’m sure he’d stay up all night with us and talk about fashion, food and freaks. Plus, I’d like to know the story behind the cupie doll and Pokemon characters on his hat.

T.G.I.F.

Lovely Bones

I’ve been seeing an influx of dinosaur bones and other skeletal images in the fashion industry lately. The first thing to catch my eye last year was this gold dinosaur necklace by Tatty Devine. I thought it was amazing! Then I brought in a few “bone” images on T-shirts and tanks and the customers really dug them. (Pun intended, but I’m also still half asleep, so have a little mercy on me.) The flamingo pic is a post we did on Instagram a few weeks ago from the boutique.

Anyway, Louis Vuitton just released this dinosaur sketch of what their windows will look like for fall. Woot! I’m so excited because we have more Jurassic-inspired items on order for Roadkill Ranch and, our featured artist for October (Matt Brady) makes handmade jewelry from the bones of (real) tiny animals. It’s creepy-cool! But we love it!

Join us on Instagram under Roadkill_ranch or Facebook under Roadkill Ranch for more pics and up-to-the-minute style and event info.

Have a great week and keep those bones strong!

So Tired!

Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic for the week and my new motto for the rest of the year, “Don’t tread on me!”

The Goodyear Dunlop Company actually commissioned designer Carl Elkins along with photography studio Mierswa Kluska to create a powerful photographic series expressing the key characteristics of the Goodyear brand.  The company is known for producing strong, robust tires that can withstand the most adverse driving conditions. This amazing art collaboration was creatively done by transforming tires into fashionable suits of armor.

So when the rubber meets the road, make sure it’s Goodyear! Hey, that’s a pretty good tag line, considering I’m still half asleep.

Oh, and what about Goodyear’s Blimp? How come the Blimp isn’t getting any fashion attention? Is it too big? Too curvy? Not fit for the runways? Alright, I’m going back to bed now.

Anklet Time

anklet

I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful, and I spent the majority of my time pool side. I love it when all of the neighborhood kids come over and jump in my pool, it’s so cute. And, I even figured out a way to make them eat healthy snacks by serving veggies and nuts in cupcake liners. (Insert evil laugh.) It’s all about the packaging.

Anyway, when you’re in the sun all day, you start noticing things like, toe nail polish colors, spots you’ve missed while shaving and your lovely, bare ankles. Seriously, it’s time to break out the anklets. When I realized that I didn’t own a single anklet, I started researching and found this great DIY site http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-anklet/ .

I hope you’re all inspired to pull out your anklets, to create your own, or to purchase a new one this season. I’m going to see some of my jewelry vendors this week, so I promise to keep my eyes peeled for some cool anklets for Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Until then, stay stylish, stay creative and stay happy!

Inspiring Insights

Every season New York Magazine asks top designers to give us a hint of what we can look forward to in their up coming collections. Without giving away too much proprietary information, the designers were asked to submit one picture along with one word that best describes the inspiration for their fall creations. The mix varied from mod shapes to funk to outer space, but these were a few of my favorite looks. I guess I’m drawn to the mystery of things. These also seem to have a “Hitchcock” vibe, and well, I love Alfred Hitchcock. Sold!

The first picture is Kenneth Cole and the word is “Liberation”.

The second picture is Monika Chiang and the word is “Flight”.

The third picture is Cynthia Rowley and the word is “CuRious”.

The fourth picture is Yigal Azrouel and the word is “Temptation”.

The last two pictures are my submissions. They’re posters from the original movie release of  “The Birds”. I’m pretty sure I’ve nailed the inspiration source. Who can deny it? My words for both would be “Hitchcock”.

I’ve attached the final scene from the 1963 thriller “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock for your morning suspense fix. I hope you like it. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Something’s Fishy!

gold-fish-bra

One fish, two fish, gold fish, boob fish. Here’s my “Freaky Friday Fashion” pic of the week, a fish bra. Brilliant! Now I know what I’m going to wear when I chaperone the kids to the Long Beach Aquarium this summer.

I also think it would be great if the OC Fair booth workers at the “Win a Fish” game wear these. That way when people complain, “What am I going to do with a gold fish?” The booth attendants can just point to their bras and say, “DUH!”

Only boring people get bored. Keep those creative juices flowing!

Who let the dogs out?

photoDownloadedFileHMStreetChic8_V_15nov12_MichaelGray_b_296x432

 

There’s a big surge in the fashion industry involving dogs. (And no I’m not talking about the shady knock-off manufacturers, they’re called something else.) Designers everywhere are using strong and fierce dogs as their icons on T-shirts, handbags and more.

The top photo was taken at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique and the bottom two pics are Givenchy. This is just a glimpse of what is to come. Say goodbye to tiny pups and pink poodles, it’s all about the tough dog now. Because they are “Ruff-Ruff” (sorry, I couldn’t help it).

Stay stylish and don’t bark up the wrong tree!

Power Players

It’s out! Forbes has just released their yearly list of the world’s 100 Most Powerful Women, and the line up is pretty awesome. Taking the #1 spot is German chancellor Angela Merkel. Lady Gaga weighs in at #14, snuffing out Queen Elizabeth who lands the #26 slot.

Aside from the dignitaries and political power houses, it’s great to see some fashion industry gurus and entertainers making the list. Miuccia Prada, Anna Wintour and Diane Von Furstenburg were also on the coveted scroll.

So, for those of you who don’t think fashion and art is important, you might want to pick up the latest issue of Forbes today. Until then, click here to see the entire list.  100 Most Powerful Women

Church Members

Picture 9 Picture 10Picture 11

Here’s a sneak peek from Dolce and Gabbana’s 2013 fall collection.

In the beginning Dolce created a sheath. Gabbana added mosaic prints that were inspired by the Monreale Cathedral church.

Together they spirited their disciples away with rich fabrics and embellished looks. Crowns and oversized chandelier earrings adorned the models and the collection brought peace to the industry.

Amen.

So Hot!

Clooney-and-Keible_1679864a

The Oscars were full of amazing gowns and star-studded styles in “Tinsel Town” yesterday. My favorite look by far was this hot number. I loved the sleek, sexy, effortless feel. The black accessories, the sultry bedroom eyes and the facial hair just melts my heart. Oh, and Stacy Keibler’s dress by designer Naeem Khan was nice too.
