de chanel

Just like every girl dreams of Chanel and Paris and fashion... I think every lady has a mini girl crush on Miss Deschanel. Including this lady!

I mean how can you not? She's adorable, quirky, fashionable, smart, and she seems super down to earth like she'd be the best gal-pal you could have and loads of fun to be around. I fell for her in Elf and even forgive her for The Happening. It's alright, I can look beyond that!

WELL! Guess what?!?

I am very very excited and proud to say that Zooey is wearing my work in her new movie! My boss (Dominique Cohen) emailed us all yesterday to say that we need to go see 500 Days of Summer because Zooey is wearing her designs! It's all toward the end of the movie and we only have ideas of what they used but I am really really excited! I don't think I'll catch it this weekend, prob next weekend so I can make it a movie date with my hunny. 

So do me a favor, look for a long rose gold chain toward the end which she wears doubled, rose gold post earrings (we've heard she wears them twice) and also our handbags but that's not confirmed. You can take a peek at our site and see what our bags look like. I am really excited! This is 1000x better than that Neiman's ad that never made it to print!

BTW, click over HERE! for a good link to our stuff. It is a little pricey but I can guarantee the work, after all, it is a lot of my craftsmanship. I do most the soldering and set up. As well as general logistics in the designs. 

So please check it out and support! I can't wait to see it!! :)

Belated love

Two of my (fabulous!) besties in the whole wide world were born three days (and one year, but who's counting?!) apart! Their special days just graced us (Thursday and Sunday) but I think it's still safe to give them a special shout out :)

I met Holly in 2002 at a wild party ;) and we've had many many good times from then to now... unfortch, the ooold pics I had were on a computer that was stolen :( But we have a good amount to compensate, and those memories will never fade :) She is my fashionista go-to gal, like the older sister that I can always count on. I love her dearly! 

We added to our little party in 2006 when we met Shannon in Memphis through another friend. Everyone was ready to crash by the time we got to the hotel and we were bouncing off the walls. We asked Shannon if she wanted to come out to the bars with us and by 4am we were attached at the hip. Those 3 days were some of the best of my life and memories I will treasure for a lifetime.

Shannon is my heart, my shining light... my confidant. She always makes me feel better, we take the bad and laugh at it. We fight through the shit and are real with each other. Our friendship is honest and pure, no secrets, no bullshit. I am very lucky and happy to have her and Holly in my life!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABES! I love and miss you both!
Wish we lived much much closer, but here's to seeing each other SOON! xoxoxo
