I got the giant Hippo and Shark to use as pillows on my couch a week or so before this…so they had to make their photoshoot debut asap!!  I LOVE toys…so i’ve come to the conclusion that I just may NEVER grow up!!  I could be Peter Pan…minus not being a boy….and minus not flying…plus no Captain Hook….grrrRR….so I guess not quite like Peter Pan…lol.

Pirates, creepy Old Man Mustaches and…The tale of the Vaginasaurus

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

Today my puppies had to get their shots.  Poor puppies!!  But rabies sucks….so it had to be done…lolol

Yesterday was a fun day!!  I haven’t done a NY shoot in over a month!  <—-that’s craziness!!  So it was GREAT to be back….and to be playing dress up with my team again!!!  Plus I’ve been SUPER creatively inspired lately….which is odd.  Normally in the winter I like to bum around b/c I HATE the cold….but i’ve had all sorts of amazing and creative ideas that HAVE to come to life!!!!!  So…after my meeting on Friday (which I may be able to tell you something later next week about that)…I got back to my studio and sewed allllll night!  Made some super cute things!  For whatever reason…the theme of the outfits I started to make was “pirates”….

…these are the backstage photos from yesterdays PIRATE ARgghhhh Shoot : )

Glamour Request for Chace Crawford Shoot Hi-

We’re working on a couples-themed fashion well story featuring Chace Crawford and a model, and would like to request the attached/circled New York Couture S/S 2010 looks for this story. Please see the shoot details below and let me know if these looks will be available, so we can schedule a messenger pick-up. Thanks so much!

ISSUE: February 2010
EDITOR:  Maggie Mann
DATES: Nov. 11th, Wednesday

and this is the photo they sent to show what they wanted from the newest collection:


I had to keep this top secret CIA status (lol)…b/c I would otherwise get in trouble for spilling the beans on the story…and also because i’m super superstitious and I didn’t want to jinx this.  As you can see…weeks past….and you never know for sure with these things if it’s going to happen.  ….but…..IT DID!!! The February 2010 GLAMOUR issue came out yesterday and I was beyonddddd excited to find my VIXEN Sequin Leggings featured!!!!! Plus Chase (aka Nate Archibald) is yummy to look at…and my baby girl Katy Perry is on the COVER!  Could not have asked for anything better!

These suckers are SOOO sweet to wear!!  Lined with comfy bathing suit material…and SPARKLES like crazy!!!  MORE colors coming soon
