Fashion Favorites

So I have many favorite things to wear because I like to have a range of styles.  At work I get to be alot more dressed up than I would be and it has given me an opportunity to amass a different set of professional and trendy wardrobe.  The good part also is that working in the industry, and in Beverly Hills, allows me to get away with more fashional, stylish, trendy oufits than let's say, an accounting office, so it has been exciting and fun to find new pieces.  Here's some examples from 2010 and well as new favorites I'd like to try out!

The Schoolgirl
Long time fav.  Went to private school my whole life and then Gossip Girl, I can't seem to get away from the youthful girlish chic that makes me feel young and cute but also preppy and put-together. 
Key factors:
knee/thigh highs
skirts (pleated or toule)
Cardigan or blazer
Collared shirt or blouse
Mary janes or oxfords.

The Wayfarer
Big shirt, jeans shorts, sandals (strappy or gladiator), sunglasses, messy hair.  Comfy for spring and summer out to the beach or shopping.

The Receptionist
form fitting shift dress or pencil skirt and tailored blouse.  Pearls, glasses and hair up with pumps. Don't for get a blazer or cardigan or maybe some sexy fashion tights/nylons.

The Party Girl
Something short, maybe vintage, flattering and sparkly! My NYE outfit says fun, flirty but relevant.  Stay away from jeans and a cute top unless ur in college.  If u arent in college why are u wearing jeans to a party? Just saying...

Something that says wow, shes a beautiful woman.  not trashy or overly sexualized, somehting that compliments the good parts of you and make you feel great!  Please see Holiday Party attire photo.  It was a hit and I felt sexy without showing too much skin.  People came up to talk to me bec I looked unique and confident in this one of a kind LF garment. 

Casual Corner
I LOVE my new orange/rust cordouroys!! Not only are they skinny and comfortable in all the right places, these Anthropologie sale item goes with soo many things, including my new Top-Sider Navy and Platnium Sperrys.  I can add white or brown or a sweater or a light blouse and I will have an adorable comfortable outfit that is yes, not another pair of blue jeans.  I am actually avoiding wearing jeans at all costs in an effort to give myself a different looks and to create a different style.  What you may not realize is how limiting "Jeans and a T-Shirt" can be.  Though easy and comfy, it doesn't say much about you except that you're lazy and know where to find an Abercrombie.  Spice it up!!!

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
