green Thumb

Olive, Emerald & Jade are just a few green nail shades that have caught my attention. In need of a change, a new nail color in my rotation seems mild. With so many choices that reek moldy goth, it is crucial to pick the right shade. OPI's dark emerald polish Here Today Aragon Tomorrow gives off a classy & rich dark feel with a hint of green. And Chanel's nail color in Jade (featured in pic below) is so retro unique- a great accent color for photo shoots & when things warm up.

LA fashion week is here (yes, we still have a fashion week) and Wednesday evening's turn-out at LA Fashion on Broadway held at the historic Los Angeles Theatre downtown was encouraging.

The theme of the night was installations and I started with a preview of Maxine Dillon's Spring collection. The stationary models gave me enough time to pick some of my favorite pieces including the dip dye shirt dress and pleated pants. Her range of looks was ambitious, and Dillon kept it together with similar colors and fabrics.

Eco-line Popomomo was my main draw and did not disappoint. The installation was well displayed on the theatre's stage and we sat in a circle of chairs around two large abstract wood structures. The show started and it immediately became a fluid installation with multiple models on set and a smooth transition of looks. The S/S10 collection was presented for viewers as the models moved stylishly with the music, showing off the functionality of each piece while interacting with the set. So clearly thought out, this season's designs show an immense focus on zippers, buttons & ties while keeping the key drape and clever cut-outs Popomomo is known for. Designer Lizz Wasserman has definitely created a wearable season with numerous pieces I must have. Lucky for me, we share a studio space!

Just a few of my favorites:

leather, Boots.

TOPSHOP Amigo Stirrup Ankle Boot

Urban Outfitters Exposed Zip Boot

I recently returned from a 10 day trip to Minnesota. Fall is in the air, meaning it's time for a new/old pair of leather boots. I pulled some of my favorite styles- above the knee, ankle, bootie- then realized I already have a vintage version for each. Guess I'll hold out for a pair of JUSTIN lace-up roper boots. Fingers crossed.
