Golf ‘n’ STUFF

August 4, 2009



I decided a few weeks ago that if my golfing skills were good enough I would try to join the LPGA by 30.  Why? Because I’d like to make millions and I was thinking Stella McCartney could sponsor me.  I hadn’t swung a club since high school and I was never on the golf team because it was the same season as softball.  My dad says I need lessons to truly know my potential but we all know I can drive it.  Sports dominated my life for the first 18 years so I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. No pun intended!

I figured my work ensemble would be fine for the driving range and I was correct.  I’ve acquired so many shorts this summer and I think they go perfect with heels.  That’s definitely been one of my summer uniforms and I’m glad in was multi-functional today.

Oh yeah, remember I said I’d try to incorporate some of my own style photos?  Here you go.  There will be a lot more I am sure.  I think I have a pretty good sense of humor so you’ll definitely get more photos of me with gummy Haribo peaches on my tongue. (Above left)


The WOODS pt. 2

July 14, 2009





I couldn’t go on vacation without hitting the local thrift stores.  I found an amazing astrology necklace [ sorry it is blurry] and an amethyst piece.  While I was in Virginia City I picked up these copper and gold dream catchers which take me back to my Girl Scout days.  Who else made their own dream catchers?  I couldn’t be happier with the treasures I found while on vacation.  Thrifting out of state has always been a win for me.  Don’t even get me started on my $7 Louis Vuitton military jacket from Vegas.

I finally found myself a long black clutch.  It is true perfection.  Too bad I didn’t have $400 lying around to pick up that amazing YSL at a Nevada outlet to add to my collection. Sigh.  If you love history, ol’timey candy, and the gold/silver rush like myself, make sure to swing by Virginia City when you’re in the area.

Funny Girl

March 25, 2009


My favorite quality in any person is their sense of humor.  If you can make me laugh we’re friends for life.  Anna Faris is one of those people who can make me pee my pants laughing.  She makes some of the worst movies but she always manages to make me chortle.  I’ll excuse her bad roles as I am well aware there are very few decent roles written for women in Hollywood and she’s not an “A-lister” yet.

Thank you Elle magazine for recognizing how awesome Anna Faris.  See her beautiful shots after the break.


Yves Saint Laurent in Retrospect

January 6, 2009


As I promised, here are my photos from the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.  Photographs were strictly prohibited inside the exhibit, but I had to capture a few to remember this amazing retrospective.  I’m pretty slick, and went unnoticed.

[Top] The welcome photo at the entrance into the exhibit.

[Top Left] This sheer dress was my favorite garment in the entire exhibit.  It was made of chiffon with an ostrich feather bottom.  I also loved that gold snake belt as an accoutrement.  Something I learned from the exhibit, which I might have been in denial of – I LOVE FEATHERS!   [Top Right]  This was another feathered dress, with a scale-like dress behind it.  They were both behind a large glass wall, but their beauty was evident.

[Lower Left] The Mondrian dress.  You know it, you probably love it, now see it in person.  In fact, there were numerous dresses in the exhibit that showcased YSL’s admiration for the arts.  [Lower Right] This one’s for you Stefani!  This woven wedding dress was prominent right in the center of the exhibit.  I cannot believe I got this great shot!  As soon as I saw it, I thought of you.  I hope you love it as much as I do.

Do something great in 2009 – visit your local museum and become a member!  Cannot afford that?  Drop them a $5 donation.  Every bit counts, trust me.

San Francisco + YSL

Marina Schiano in Evening Gown. Fall-Winter 1970

I am in San Francisco right now, and loving it! I’ve already collected lots of fashion + design photos to share. Keep checking back, as I have computer access at my sister’s house.

One of the things I am looking forward to most is the YSL exhibit at the de Young Museum.  I know it is going to me absolutely marvelous!
