I always remember the scene from Powell’s The Red Shoes. Lermontov, the impresario, counsels the young composer, Craster, whose just had his score stolen by an older, burned-out composer: “It is worth remembering, that it is much more disheartening to have to steal than to be stolen from ........ so true!
We have slashed our prices on half of or older inventory. Most do not say sale if you know our inventory some pieces have up to 500- off! Grab them now because I'm getting ready to remove a lot of older inventory and sending it to Los Angeles!
My favorite look of the evening. Gwen said that she had four clothing lines. Shocking that she did not know how to say Swarovski crystal right when she was asked what the dress was made out of. Well maybe not so shocking but I liked this look. Oh and I might add that I think after last night I will never wear the color tangerine again sheesh!
It took 50 years for me to get my mother to give me this photo! This is the only photo that exists of my father, me and my mother all together. He died in early 1965 I was about 13 months old. This photo was taken May 1964. Anyway this is a bit of a sad post but I visited his grave our family plot in Bakersfield when I was on my vacation. Seems strange the whole family is there now ;(
All questions will have to wait until tomorrow- I'm off for the evening 5 days of BQ marathon work is too much for me. Taking a break to listen to Mark Younger-Smith play his new pre-war 1938 Gibson Lap Steel in mint condition!!! Bought in Bakersfield California! G'nite!
I still have so many new things I didn't get a chance to shoot. I'm doing another photo shoot with a new model around the first of September and I won't forget about this fabulous dress. Also next month I'm doing the special Lady Bird Johnson event and the dress is gorgeous (hint acid chartreuse) like the other new vintage piece I just listed. Right now I'll be listing my final pastel and lace dress. We are discontinuing our lace pieces as we are moving into fall. If you want one of our Iconic lace dresses that we are known for this is it!

Our room and our night out with Keith Forsey. Love this massive suite with a killer view. The huge mirror doubles as a T.V. on one side and a mirror on the other :) The room was right above The House of Blues which I heard was closing. I'm not sure if that's true. The room also had a big glass steam shower next to the bed. A very sexy room.
I'm back from my fantastical vacation. I brought back so many gorgeous pieces I can't wait to share. I'm starting back on my new collection tomorrow and doing a photo shoot of the new vintage Sunday. I may even have a couple new accessories from my new line in the photos (maybe). Possibly one or two. This photo was taken in my room at the Mondrian.(more photos coming) I mainly made posts of photos on my FB and sort of ignored my instagram. We had a blast many a night at the Chateau Marmont and purchased some fabulous vintage at Golyester where I used to work. They love me there and were nice enough to give my son some cool birthday gifts. Spent a lot of time in Malibu. I also spent time in Bakersfield with my family and let me tell you there are some major vintage finds there. My husband bought a 1938 Gibson lap steel there and I scored a piano shawl trove (which I'm keeping) but I bought lots of clothing there for re-sale. I'm super busy prepping for tomorrow stay tuned as my online diary is now back in full swing.
