At the Los Angeles Premiere of Twilight there were hundreds of people lined up just to get a glimpse of their favorite celebrity. This premier came complete with a black carpet and just about all the most popular celebs you can think of. Oh yeah, tons and tons of screaming teenage girls!

Kristen Stewart showed up wearing a white one shoulder Elie Sabb mini dress. I'm not crazy about the dress but I am glad she is starting to glam things up a bit!

Now on to the boys! Robert Pattinson had all the girls swooning in a slim fitting heritage style Maroon Gucci suit from the fall/winter 2010 collection. Debuting his new hair cut he looked dapper for a change.

Taylor Lautner looked...well...the same as usual wearing a simple black business suit.

I am not too sure how I feel about their choices as a group but in a battle of the boys, Edward (excuse me) Robert Pattinson wins this battle for sure!

Fabulous Fact of the day!

Invention of the Bermuda Shorts

Back in the 1930’s, women in Bermuda were forbidden to show their thighs in public. Female visitors and local residents wanted to wear shorts so they simply lengthened the length of their shorts to the knee to cover their thighs.

Elizabeth I loved hats so much that she made it mandatory for all females over the age of 7 to wear a hat on Sundays and holidays. Anyone who refused to do so was stiffly fined.

They wore what??

Every now and then I hear a story that makes me stop dead in my tracks. After watching the news I heard that Lady Gaga was spotted at a baseball game wearing...well...nothing. I"ll let the picture speak for itself.
And giving the bird in public is not so "lady" like.

Fabulous fact of the day!

Wonderful Wonder bra!

Would you believe the bra wasn’t patented until 1914? The bra was created by a young New York socialite named Mary Phelps who grew weary of having her camisole show when she wore a lace blouse. Using handkerchiefs, she designed the first rudimentary bra which she eventually had patented in 1914. Women everywhere loved Mary’s new design and the first bra took off in a big way. It was later that a woman named Ida Rosenthal started designing bras with different cup sizes.

Does anyone have a tissue???

Fabulous Fact of the Day!!

Have you ever asked yourself why there are buttons on the ends of jacket sleeves. According to information passed down through the ages, none other than Napoleon Bonaparte dictated that buttons be attached to jacket sleeves to stop the annoying habit soldiers had of wiping their runny noses on their jacket sleeves.

Alabama it is illegal to wear a false moustache which causes laughter in church!!

Hopeless romantic

I am without a doubt the worlds biggest hopeless romantic. Like most girls I feel like I should be treated like a queen and I have no problem treating a deserving man like a king and as a matter of fact I look forward to it. There is nothing better than being in a relationship with someone that makes you feel appreciated and that adds to your life rather than take away. I've always been the dreamy eyed girl that wants to be wooed but the strange thing about me is that I am not a fan of weddings. I think they are fussy and made out to be more important than the actual marriage itself.

In late May I started reading the Nicholas Sparks book, The Wedding and I fell in love. Not with weddings but I guess I just started to see that they aren't all horrible and every wedding day doesn't have to be like on Bridezillas. The book discusses a man that has spent his entire life doing what he was suppose to, providing a roof over his families head and being faithful but in the course of his life he forgot to do those little things that matter in a relationship. He beings to realize this and starts to change and appreciate his wife and his family more than ever and actually starts living. I know, gag me with a spoon right?? Well as I get older and relationships become more serious, stories like these start to make sense. You would think that its easy to show someone that you love them but sometimes life gets in the way and its not so simple.

Here is a passage from the book:

"I once made a vow to you on the steps outside the courthouse, and as your husband of thirty years, it's time I finally made another: From this point on, I will become the man I always should have been. I'll become a more romantic husband, and make the most of the years we have left together. And in each precious moment, my hope is that I'll do or say something that lets you know that I could never have cherished another as much as I've always cherished you."

I finished the book this morning so I'm still feeling all lovey dovey so I was inspired to find 2 things about weddings with two important aspects: 1. They don't make me gag 2. Simplicity.

Dress can be found at David's Bridal

I love this combination of manzanita branches and roses.

Age of innocents

~Me at Age 5~
"Remember when you were 5 and anything was possible??"

I sure do!
At the age of five, I wanted to be everything under the sun. The most famous story my mother tells is that for the longest time I aspired to be a fire engine...not a truck... an engine. Then there was the Christmas I campaigned to get turn tables because I was certain that I wanted to be a world class DJ. This was followed by an ice skater, teacher, choreographer, back ground singer, hair dresser, soap opera star and most importantly a fashion designer.

I was lucky enough to have a mother that allowed me to explore all of my options and through out all of those mental career changes she always made me feel like I stood a chance. More importantly I knew that I could make it at any of these things if I put my mind to it.
Sitting in my nieces kindergarten graduation and later a friend's college graduation, I couldn't help but wonder how many people actually live out the dreams they had when they were 5? Can I say that I am living out my dreams or were they just pipe dreams?
This blog is a part of my dream. I know that with my faith as well as my friends and family I am that much closer to reaching my "possible". I want to thank those of you who follow this blog on blogspot or twitter and for making this dream real and enjoyable.
I hope that those of you that are graduating and moving into new chapters of your lives can look back at some point and say that you too have reached your goals. No matter what your interests are make sure that you pursue them with passion. From one college graduate to another make sure that you do your dreams justice and ALWAYS keep a good clean pair of shoes even if you only have one ( what did you expect? this IS a fashion blog after all!). Congrats to the class of 2010!

Not your mother's pearls.

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Browsing though the Michael's Craftstore website I came across this tutorial on how to make your very own pearl statement necklace. Now I am giving you warning that the instructions may seem a little over whelming but take the project one step at a time and you should have no problems. I am posting the instructions below and would love to see what you fabulous people come up with!

Crystazzi Pearls 6 mm Round Ecru Pearls, 83
Crystazzi Pearls 8mm Round Ecru Pearls, 102
Crystazzi Pearls 10mm Round Ecru Pearls, 52
Ribbon, 5/8-inch Black Organza, 20-inch
Ribbon, 3/16-inch Black Satin, 50-inch
Jump Rings, Silver 6mm Closed, 2
Silver Crimps, 10
Black Thread
Silver Beading Wire
Needle (basic sewing)
Needle Nose Pliers
Crimping Pliers (optional)


1. Thread onto the first strand: 52-10mm pearls. Use a crimp to secure the end to a second jump ring.

2. When finishing with a crimp, bring the tail of wire back down through a few beads to conceal it and then trim off any excess after the crimp is flattened.

3. Thread onto the second strand: 52-8mm pearls. Use a crimp to secure the end to the second jump ring below the first strand.

4.Thread onto the third strand: 83-6mm pearls. Use a crimp to secure the end to the second jump ring below the second strand.

5.Thread onto the fourth strand: 79-6mm pearls. Use a crimp to secure the end to the second jump ring below the third strand.

6.Thread onto the fifth strand: 50-8mm pearls and black satin ribbon (30-inch piece). Tie the end of the ribbon in a small knot at the starting jump ring. Pierce the center of the ribbon with the beading wire after the first pearl and then continue threading pearl- ribbon-pearl-ribbon. The ribbon should weave in a zigzag pattern around the pearls (over then under and repeat). See how the pattern shows in the photo. Use a crimp to secure the end to the second jump ring. Finish the ribbon by tying it in a knot at the second jump ring and trimming any excess.

7.Cut a 20-inch piece of black organza ribbon and tie the ends onto each side 6mm jump ring to form the back of the necklace.

8.Cut two 8-inch pieces of black satin ribbon and tie small bows around each 6mm jump ring to cover the crimps and knots. A bit of simple sewing through the center of the bows can be done to secure the knots and make sure the bows don’t slip or fall out of shape.

The Art of Glamour Fashion Show

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Being a student of fashion design and a supporter of the arts, I am always glad to see when fashion designers are given a chance to debut their work. Events like these are where dreams are realized. Having had the chance to show my first collections on a runway show, I fully understand the hard work and creative energy that goes with showing your designs to the world.

This evening at 6pm the Art Institute of California-Inland Empire is holding their 2nd annual Fashion Show and scholarship fundraiser at the Lewis Family Playhouse at Victoria Gardens Cultural Center in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. It will be a night of elegance mixed with fashion and the opportunity to support emerging fashion designers. There will be a catered reception and music from String Theory. You won't want to miss out on this! For more information please visit http://aifashionempire.com/. See you there!
