Wish me luck we are deep in fashion-land stylists and photographers coming today. Full schedule and lots of new deigns an all new BQ. I never thought designing Tee's could be so difficult but it is! xo BQ
This is a crazy busy insane week! Today I'm finishing up 4 interviews and two magazine articles. I have a stylist coming to pull the new clothing tomorrow morning. I'm making the final decisions on all the new t shirt designs and the preparing for new pieces on Saturday. Not to mention I have to reveal the name of my line soon. Whew I love it!
Enjoy the house vibes some of my personal favorites.
I collect Art Nouveau and 1920's pillows. I've collected them since my earlier years in Hollywood and I have a new addition to the family. This pillow is being shipped from Paris and I'm quite excited about it's arrival. It's huge. These pillows are getting harder and harder to find especially in this kind of condition. We're also starting the renovation of my kitchen and the grounds of our home along with the Guest house in the back above Mark's recording studio. This house is fabulous but it requires full time up up-keep. I still haven't hung all of my chandeliers from my old BQ store in the house because the ceilings are so high. I'll post photos of the renovation here and there. I was inspired by the place where we shot for stylecaster. I can't say where it was but it was a lot like my style and there were lots of inspirational ideas to be had.
Today we work on the new collection which is coming along nicely ;)
Tons of gorgeous new images and lots of new offerings. I'll have some photos up tomorrow but Tuesday and Wednesday is my big shoot for me so I'm not working on those days I'll be away. Also many of the images are going to a magazine and are for my May collection however, we managed to sneak many of the new Spring collection pieces in that I haven't had a chance to photograph yet. Also we did a few website images like the one here. Check back tomorrow for more!
This is probably not a movie that you would think would be Boudoir Queen's movie pick of the year but it is. We get all the movies for Academy Award viewing and many more. I've seen almost every movie a few times and above all my favorite thus far is Moonrise Kingdom and yes it's sort of about a scout troop. They even fit in a little nod to Françoise Hardy GREAT MOVIE!!
Last week I cut about 3 inches off my hair and now after seeing Madonna's Bettie Page bangs I might try it. I doubt I will as it takes me back to the 90's but it's a possibility. I have a lot of photo sessions coming up and I'd like to try something new. What say you?
If your looking for NY fashion week images you will probably not find them here unless Marc Jacobs blows me away. I have to admit I'm feeling rather blasé about New York fashion week and I'm not seeing anything thus far that I can't live without. I'm spoiled by Paris Haute fashion. On a good note I'm loving this new editorial in i-D magazine Check this out-i-D Magazine; models Cara Delevingne, Codie Young, Charlie Bredal, Louise Parker and Magda Laguinge pose for Richard Bush (Trouble Management) Stylist Sarah Richardson selects easy silhouettes from the likes of Saint Laurent, Maison Martin Margiela, Valentino and Jil Sander. For beauty, hair stylist James Rowe and makeup artist Mathias van Hooff create the girls relaxed looks. Casting by Barbara Nicoli & Leila Ananna @ Trouble Management
I'm truly sorry for my lack of blogging as of late. I've started my collection Fall/Winter 2013 and I'm trying to get my T-Shirt line finished by SXSW. I've been asked to speak during SXSW and I have the New York event as well so it's been very hectic. I'm also prepping for the "BIG THING" I mentioned earlier. On top of it all I have an acute sinus infection that came back this week so I've been sick fever and all and still have had to work. My staff literally coming to my bedside and working with me....now that's loyalty and Shannon is a doll I love her and am so lucky to have had her with me for all these years. I just got back from the doctor and I'm suppose to be resting. I have to go work in Austin tomorrow and ahhhhh I'm just so over not feeling well. I've had to push back shoots I hate that but such is life! So I think you all are going to be wanting one of each t-shirt I'm so excited about them! Stay tuned!
