Despite the fact that only models can elegantly sport holey/hippie-inspired threads, Spring 2011's spotlight on Macrame is beautiful across the board. Fashion's current need for quality of detail has left many resorting (pun intended) to the painstakingly handmade. Enjoy some various shots of next year's Macrame Moment, and the 70's sex kitten vibe that comes with.
Favorite bi-annual event:::The Gem Show. Besides being an inspirational visualgasm, there are plenty of complete weirdos milling about. Enjoy a few shots from the show, as well as both completed and incomplete projects purchased at said event. Now, back to gorging on tea and chocolates while wrapping presents....
Apologies for sporadic posting, it's been a strange first half of December. I haven't been sitting by the fire, sipping chocolate eggnog after all (well, not much anyways).
I created a custom jacket and styled a men's motivational chorus for my favorite production company, Imagination Entertainment. Last week was also their joint holiday party with Artwalk San Diego, and I cannot stress enough how much I love every last person in that office.
I had the privilege of building my own glass at Fusion Glass Co. It was super fun and I recommend a class to anyone with a spare hour...Deb and Paulie are so fantastic and fun to be around in addition to their talent!!! We had a successful meeting and have laid our plans for the big show and series of installations at the San Diego Art Department. Photos of everyone's before and after glass/our Arts Collide meeting to come...
Last week, I styled a Holiday Fashion Show under Bad Madge Productions for Otay Ranch Town Center. I will be posting pictures as I get them, such kitschy fun!
This week, I'm providing for a fashion spread in San Diego Magazine, as well as styling a fashion show at the Mission Beach Women's Club. With some very exciting house guests on their way to distract me, I'll sign off with the promise of many photos to come. To supplement, here are some fun images that reminded me of the holidays/winter/the cruel nature of things/what people really want for Christmas/family gatherings......
In answer to months of whining, the universe has sent me a miracle. I'll try to refrain from ranting, but my local Starbucks just isn't cutting it any more. Besides the ideological issue of supporting a rotund corporate empire (vs. the fact that it employs and provides for several wonderful people I know), my local Starbucks features incredibly rude baristas and stale, mass manufactured pastries.
Enter Sugar & Scribe Bakery, the greatest gift of this holiday season. Situated at 1420 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach, San Diego-this tiny wonderland has finally got me eating breakfast. There are fresh new items every day, piping hot out of the oven. The aromas from this bakery literally travel blocks, and I recently (gladly) burnt my tongue on a chevre/strawberries pastry. After 20 or so tastings, I realized that the owner, Maeve, is a genius. She is also incredibly pretty, friendly and funny-and now a cheerful AM staple. Sugar & Scribe is not just for early risers; they are open most days til 4 pm. With savory items like cheese and egg souffles and homemade soups, there is something for everyone. Recently Maeve began holding a 10 course tasting meal, by reservation only. I would list off my favorite items, but everyone prefers pictures, right? Plus...it changes every day!
944 recently posted the online edition of their San Diego magazine. Inside featured many local artists and performers, including one of my favorite models, Whitney McCannon and the amazing pop artist Phaero.
Phaero was kind enough to book me for styling his shoot at the New Village Arts Theatre. Shot by Karen Morrison, this backstage photo session was full of relaxed professionals. Enjoy the Phaero photo shoot below, as well as the page featuring Whitney McCannon, whom I just adore. (Click to enlarge and read!)
Note: Whitney is absolutely tiny. Any references to her being "curvy" obviously reflect the prejudices and therefore handicaps of the world of modern ballet.
A trillion thanks to the amazing and professional Sade Williams for getting our "DAYGLO" photo shoot published. Slave Magazine featured us in their newest edition among incredibly talented international fashion editorial teams. Make sure to check out the array of Slave Magazine's gorgeous editorials, and enjoy these shots stolen from their pages.
