The San Diego Thread Show Adventure

THREAD Show San Diego Fall 2011


In a perfect world every fashion designer would be famous because I came across so many creative minds at the recent THREAD Show in San Diego who should be world renowned!

If you don't know, the THREAD Show showcases indie fashion, or emerging fashion designers, and takes place in several cities. The Fall/Winter tour started in San Diego a few weeks ago with a show in Seattle this past weekend and upcoming shows in Los Angeles (11/13/11) and San Francisco (11/20/11).

Bloggers Do It Better Challenge: Animal Attraction

Fall Outfit with Animal Print
As much as I love these Dolce Vita leopard print pumps, I've been a bit hesitant about wearing animal print because a certain someone said that animal print should stay on, well, animals...and that it was definitely a turn-off. So, when the latest Bloggers Do It Better challenge came up, I was excited, yet caught in a dilemma. Do I participate and turn the guy off? Or do I say, The heck with it, and have fun?!

Well, I decided to play it a little safe. I put together a scarf and these grey and ballet flats to create an outfit with subtle touches of animal print, but not enough to scare away my predator :) I took these pictures while he was at work, so he actually will never know.

Beauty Product Review: Sanitas Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Sanitas Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
All the stress, cold, rainy weather, plus the hustle and bustle of life can take a toll on your complexion. The best treat you can give your face after a crazy, hectic week is a facial...and since fall is here, what is even a better treat is a yummy enzyme mask that smells like pumpkin. I think that Sanitas Pumpkin Enzyme Mask just might be my favorite fall beauty product just because it smells so good!

My 5 Must-Have Items For the Fall Wardrobe

We're experiencing a long summer here in Southern California, and I envy those of you who already have fall weather! It is hard to think of shopping for fall clothes when it's still 80+ degrees outside, but I'm going to share my must-have items anyways...

1. Beret - A wool or knitted beret is sure to keep your head warm on those chilly fall days. Besides that, it's a classic accessory that never goes out of style.

2. Thermals - Thermal clothes are those basic items that can be worn under sweaters and pants or long skirts. Shops like Damart have a wide selection of thermal clothing for both women and men.
