Fashion Homework

Good day Darlins!
I know I've been kinda M.I.A. on my blog lately, only because once again I had fallen into a pitty-party. Yes, just one of those moments in my life where I am just over worked, tired and feeling like I'm just going around in circles.  When in truth, everyday I come closer to more accomplishments in my life that I would have never dreamed of.  I am now on what I  CALL a new career/business path.  No, I am not walking away from the fashion industry, that would be like a fish without water.  Instead, I am simply swimming to a new beat.  A new goal and new direction for my company, in which I will share with you in due time.

For now, I'd love to share with you what I call Fashion Homework.  Way back when before the ever so fabulous world of Blogging, fashion magazines were your go to for everything fashion and style.  So when I was a  kid, I started what I called "ripping".  In which, I would rip out my favorite styles, editorials, photos and more from fashion magazines and save them in scrap books or folders.  Today, my fashion homework consist of "ripping", blog reading and entertainment watching.  One MUST always continue to do their homework in what ever field they're in. Learning, is truly endless.

Fashion Homework

Although time consuming (like all homework), these books are worth a million.  Don't forget to check out these great fashion bloggers for YOUR fashion homework, under my "Blogs I love" ------ >

All Around Inspiration

About three weeks ago, I went scuba diving.  Wow! Just the thought of that freaks me out! In all honestly, I ventured as far as the Aquarium Of The Pacific in Long Beach, CA. What can I say, I'm afraid of the ocean and after visiting the Aquarium....I think I have a right to BE!

People always ask me as a designer what inspires my work and I always tell them, it's everything around me.  All around inspiration is what this world has created. Do you ever look around your daily life and wonder what that something reminds you of or could be?  Well here's not only my first post in COLOR but how my crazy inspiration works!

IS: an aquarium. I SEE: beautiful chiffon print

IS: sea grass (so I think). I SEE: fringe on a summer top.

IS: seahorse in aquarium. I SEE: an outfit with these color combinations.

IS: shark. I SEE: a thin belt for a chocolate Fall dress

IS: sea urchin. I SEE: Lady Gaga

IS: sea horse. I SEE: a handbag

IS: sea creatures. I SEE: a top with detail shoulders

IS: me. I SEE: ?
