SugarRock Catwalk: Making Statements

When Jeff of Sugar Rock Catwalk asked if I had outfit photos of my accessories for his blog, I immediately planned a few impromptu photo shoots. Customers often wonder what to wear with the cuffs and I thought these outfit posts would be helpful and beneficial for the shop.

I paired a black and white paint speckled dress with a black leather waist cincher and black leather ankle heels. Keeping the outfit simple makes the cuff the focus of the outfit. I'm also wearing red lipstick from Sephora which I've been wearing religiously.

Wanderlust: Thailand

I wish I had spent more time traveling the remote areas of South East Asia discovering the Silk Road path and the many colorful fabric markets the region has to offer.  I am a bit jealous of the photos my bf is sending me from Bangkok. Apart from his stint in Singapore, he has been taking side trips to a different city on the weekend.

This is just a typical Sunday afternoon in Chatuchak market, one of Bangkok's largest markets boasting over 8,000 stalls. You really could get lost. The heart of the silk industry in Thailand is located in Khorat. One day I will have to visit, but for now I just have these photos.

Fashionary Sketchbook

I just pre-ordered a limited edition Fashionary in Magenta! My friend Mel from the blog Mode.Mange.Musique was carrying one the other day and I just had to have one.

If you haven't heard of it, it's a sketchbook and fashion dictionary complete with female croquis templates, making brainstorming and sketching more streamlined. It's like a moleskin, but a whole lot cooler. Where was this when I was in fashion design school? I can't wait to get mine!

New York State of Mind

New York makes me feel alive. There's just so much happening in such a condensed city, it's equally stimulating and exhilarating. My all time favorite places to check out are Soho, Bleecker Street, Brooklyn, and of course, Broadway for the odd musical and show.

We saw the musical "How to Succeed in Business" featuring Daniel Radcliffe (that guy from Harry Potter), by scoring lottery tickets in the morning when the theater just opened. It saved us a ton of money, but only gave us more reason to shop.
