NEON hits the spot

I was at American Apparel the other day to look for swimsuits and I fell in love with their nail polishes. They are 3 for 15.00 so I bought 3 different NEON colors! This is the first that I've worn.  I love wearing a bold accent color when I'm wearing all black (or mostly black). It makes a statement all on it's own.  Believe it or not, it was a rush rush, let's hurry, we are running out of time, kind of ensemble today.  This is exactly why I am currently so obsessed with my fedora and hat collections. It's a great way to just slide my "already too thin" hair inside.  The nail colors really make a bold statement on it's own but I also added this very cute "pointy" gold stud earrings.

This tuxedo jacket I have on is from my original wardrobe kit. I can't believe I can fit into it because I got it for my models! Yay! I'm so happy because it's now coming into MY DOLLHOUSE! Yay!!

So we are on our way to Disneyland so that means another change of clothes. I will blog about that later, but for now, this is my look of the day, until the evening....

Have a great day my friends and family!

Thursday Rush and Friday Clean Up...

It was a very long day yesterday.  I had my meeting early so I hit the road about 1.5 hours in advance.  In LA, you always have to plan at least 1.5 to 2 hours ahead depending on where you go and when you go.  I used to travel out to Beverly Hills and I'd plan to go at least 3 hours ahead because once I got off the freeway it took me another 30 minutes just to get to my destination.  It was so crazy to say the least.  As a Stylist, you'd think I'd be used to this by now right? Not really, because you can never get used to the traffic here.  It is what it is.  I met up with my bestie, Jesse for lunch and we caught up on life and loves, then we parted ways because I had to rush back to take care of some ATF errands and get ready for Aidan's evening banquet with The Talent Factory.  The Showstoppers are the TF Competition Team that's all heading out to Vegas next week for Nationals.  Aidan is the only boy in the whole Showstopper group so all the lovely ladies really made him feel loved.  Aidan was awarded last night with a Special "Future MJ"! award.. What an honor!

Today is "end of week catch up and clean up" day.  I've had such a busy week so today I'm just staying in to relax a bit.  I have lots of emails to reply to, phone calls to return, paperwork to fill out and the rest of the day is dedicated to cleaning house.  I've also been really bad at drinking my 8 glasses of water a day and have felt pretty dehydrated... Today is the day to stay in and hydrate, mask and re-do my nails... Me day!

Have a great day and here are some photos from yesterday's amazing day/evening.

Wednesday Blues....

The week is going by so fast. I can't believe its already Wednesday.  I had some returns and pickups to do today so I just slipped on my fedora (my current obsession) and slipped out for a few hours.  It's going to be a very busy night for us so I hope you're having a great day.

I bought this skirt along with 2 other colors when it was on clearance at Target. It's a soft jersey fabric that conforms to your body. I wear it high waisted along with nude heels to give me some height.  As you can probably tell, the cardigan is a staple in my closet.  I don't wear a lot of jackets due to the weather we have here in SoCal, so I just stock up on cardies..

Note to self: Need to get more fun colors!

Tuesday Grey....

I had a few errands to run and Aidan's dental appointment so I was out all day today.  The weather outside has been so beautiful that you can't help but want to stay out in the sun.  Aidan's dental place was next to one of my favorite malls so I stopped in for a quick peek of the summer sales.  American Apparel is having a 30% swimsuit sale and if you are in the LA area, they are having a "flea market" sale (Up to 90%) at their Alameda location.  I don't shop there much but I do stop in once in awhile just to see what's new.  I picked up 3 bottles of neon nail polish colors, a swimsuit and 2 pairs of very cute shorts at 50% off. My grey dress I wore today was from the H&M sale that's currently going on.  I got it for only $10.00! Victoria Secret is also having their annual bra and underwear sale too so don't miss out on all these amazing summer deals!

We just booked our trip to Vegas next week for Aidan's dance competition.  Although I know it's going to be super hot, we'll really enjoy this mini vacation.

I'm going to dive into some work before the evening ends so have a great rest of the day.

Adding more hats to my Dollhouse! 
Happy Tuesday

A little Polka Dot

I love this little button up, orange t-shirt, polka dot dress because it's a little bit of casual and a little bit of fun. I've had it in my closet for about a year (maybe 2) and this is just the 2nd time I've worn it.  It felt like new again.  This season has really allowed us to play with every color, pattern and mix matching of different textiles, colors to prints.  I remember when Fashion had a "rule" now it's all about being an individual and expressing who you are on the inside out.  I say, take that challenge and have lots of fun with it. I look forward to dressing up everyday and going through my Dollhouse to see what I can put together... These are photos from yesterday and I'm already excited about today.

I also got a call late last night about an EXCITING new project and I'm so happy. I can't announce it just yet but wow, when one door closes, another opens right up, so don't ever give up hope.  God is always watching out for us and of course, already knows how it's going to be.  Anyway, I have a business meeting on Thursday and you know I'm already thinking ahead.. What to wear? ...  To be continued.....

Sunday: June 24 - Happy Birthday to one of my best friends Christine Cordova!

then we set off to Venice for the day to spend it with my sis in law
Cat who was in town for IMATS.

After church we went to lunch before we headed off to Venice Beach for the day

I love this shot because my intentions were of course to shoot my girls
but I didn't even notice the guy in the middle until I looked at the photo later. 


What an amazing weekend we had.  I asked my sister in law to grab me a few items from IMATS
because I couldn't attend but we got to see her and hang out with her at the beach along 
with hanging with my two besties.  To Cat: I hope you get home safe and to Tina, we are so happy that you came to visit us from Texas.  Have a great time in Fresno and we'll see you again soon. Good friends are hard to find and I'm glad I've got some amazing ones right by my side. I love you both! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well...
