Commuter Chic (3)


Monday, December 28, 2009

This young stylish girl in Beverly Hills caught my fashion eye because I love her fitted plaid blazer ( a new item obsession of mine as of late) and her retro clear tote bag. I also just adore her cropped black pants paired with simple ballet flats.

These three girls stopped and posed for my picture taker while cruising around Glendale Galleria on assignment. Love the Burberry cape on the left, and the vintage gold button jacket on the right (her Mom's no doubt). And yes, the chain straps on the purses are from Chanel bags (again, Mom's no doubt). Only in Glendale! Thanks ladies-stay the fierce youthquake fashionistas that you are!!

Happy Holidays

Many wishes of good tidings and joy, warmth, cherished moments with friends and family, and Happy Holidays!


Glendale GaGa in a Lush Life


Wednesday, December 23, 2009

It is always a real treat to go into one of my favorite beauty brand stores and check out the latest goodies to be had. It is even better when you get to have a real laugh while you are getting your "shop" on.
This afternoon I stopped in to Lush ( ) to pick up a few holiday bath bombs for myself. I didn't expect to get the laugh of the week as well. Check it:
Salesperson: O-M-G! You're in a very Gaga outfit! She'd wear something like it!"
Me: "oh, um, thanks. I had to leave my poker face at home"
Salesperson : "you have to sometimes.."
Me: (smile)
I wasn't wearing anything I'd remotely describe as "Lady Gaga".
I was in black denim Current Elliot leggings, red Theory long sleeve tee shirt worn under a TwentyTwelve Sienna Miller Union Jack print tunic, a camel J Crew cashmere shrunken blazer, and black leather Prada boots (see pic).
Everything was simple and fun. Nothing theatrical, high drama, presentational. I was wearing pants (ok leggings). I had on no headgear. There was no burning piano anywhere in sight (see other pic by Mario Sorrenti from the book "Another Fashion Book", which is decidedly "Gaga" and something she would definitely wear).
The only thing Gaga about it was my bold style, exuberance, and undeniable fey-ness. I was in fact in LA urban suburbia better known as Glendale. At the "normal" mall, The Galleria. Buying bath products from an equally fey urban compatriot. It was an acknowledgement of our fierce individuality and stance against non-conformity.
It is the laugh of the week.

Its nice to know that no matter where you go, as long as you be yourself, and feel good and look good in style, you spread laughter and joy.
Now THAT'S good!


Commuter Chic (2)


Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Another stylish young woman, this time spotted in my neighborhood commuting to Silverlake. I adore the entire look: fitted black leather jacket, full short ivory skirt, black tights, and vintage strappy wedge sandals. Her small handbag (not shown) complimented the color of her shoes but was just as unique and vintage inspired. She also worn vintage style eyeglasses that complimented her great hairstyle. Totes loves that her jacket collar is popped as well!

Fawning over Fanning


Monday, December 14, 2009

I came across this photo and article on Dakota Fanning in Teen Vogue and was very much struck by it. Written in conjunction with the "Twilight" movie craze "New Moon", in which she is starring in, I found the fashion editorial very lovely and the accompanying article nice. I love that she is set to portray Cherie Currie, of the Runaways! Oh my, "Cherry Bomb"!!! I know she will bring that *something* to it, as she has done so far in the various projects of her early career. I was talking with one of my screenwriter clients and she and I both agree that Dakota is this generation's Jodie Foster, meaning: she is smart, focused, wiser than her young years, and is making choices for her career that ensure longevity as opposed to instant status. And I know from personal account, that she lives and loves with an honest and caring spirit, taking part in many volunteer and charitable activities. Now, thats good!
Please check it out and get started fawning over Fanning:

The dress she is wearing in the pic is Rodarte for Target, one of the most highly anticipated Target designer collaborations/launches to date. It is truly going to be exciting (and very coveted) to land my hands on any of the items that Rodarte has created for their Target launch. Who doesn't want to score a piece of fashion joy in the shape of deconstructed wool cardigans, sheer body concious dresses, or fun takes on American sportswear, like the cheetah print dress on Dakota? I know I do, just for history's sake!

Commuter Guy


UPDATE: 12/23/2009

I had a nice meet and greet and a pleasant chat with my second entry and first guy in the "Commuter" series on a recent trip into Beverly Hills. I had the pleasure to meet Jeremy and snap this new pic. He is wearing a more business/professional look. I like how he is in dark charcoal but opted to inject color by choosing a burgundy shirt and topping it off with a great neutral ivory coat. Again, proving his keen style and sense and personality. Take a peek.
It was my pleasure to meet you, and here is to seeing you again very soon!

The second entry in my "Commuter" series is this very stylish guy I have seen a few times. He is always in something distinctly his own but is always classic. He tends to favor more "prep" looks but I have seen him don a full suit as well. Today he is definitely more casually dressed. I love his sneakers today: vintage Adidas! He is very smartly appointed as well, donning some of the best sunglasses I have seen around! He always catches my fashion eye beause he is keen on dressing in a way that expresses who he is, adds just a enough of a whim of trendiness and hipster cred, and always wears clothing that fits his frame and build and that is comfortable. He wears it well! I will try and snap another pic of him in another look very soon, so keep your eye out for it. Enjoy!
