Happy New Year! by Kamie Kahlo

A traditional Champagne cocktail consists of champagne poured over a sugar cube soaked in bitters
and garnished with a twisted orange rind. You can try it with sparkling water too!

Last night D and I rung in the New Year with laughter, while Lil Star wrapped her ears in a Skull Candy cave listening to “Bones” on her iPad and texting friends. We perched ourselves near a roaring fire as comedian after comedian “belted” out a secession of rapid-fire jokes from my Pandora station on my iPhone. I guess you could say we brought 2012 into our hearts the techno-way.

I made all of us Champagne cocktails and we toasted the New Year as the fireworks barely glowed over the rooftops on Queen Anne. It was, a very good year for me as a stylist. Just like those rapid-fire jokes, my 2011 was all about booking after booking. Finally, after too many years to tell, I worked steadily as a photo stylist and finished with the most successful year of my career! How did I do it? In the tough years preceding I just kept working. If I didn’t have a shoot, I made one. If it was below my pay-rate, I took it. If it was portfolio material, I was on it! I arrived with a smile on my face and I never, ever complained.
I also built a culture around me with Adelita Style and I made no compromises with my writing or “photojournalism”. And you all watched, read, followed, tweeted, and facebooked as I found my way through the years. You stayed post after post. I wrote fictional fashion stories; remember the one about the talking shoes? All of the triumphs and tragedies of the world didn’t go unnoticed, like Japan's 8.9 earthquake and Elizabeth Taylor’s passing. And mostly I wrote about style; Beauty Andrej Pejic’s rise to fame in a gender-bending fashion world, a Fashionista’s App for shoe-lovers , Vigoss jeans, Jeffery Campbell shoes, Missoni for Target and fashion advice.

It’s no surprise to me, that the first thing I did this morning, January 1st, 2012, is write a letter to you all. And I promise to do MORE. Because as much of a great year I had, I suffered tremendous losses the years preceding and often times my only nourishment was my family, friends and writing to you about my eternal love of fashion and style. Keep watching, reading, listening and commenting!

I wish you all the sparkliest, funniest, happiest, healthiest 2012!

Pretty Boy by Kamie Kahlo

Beauty Andrej Pejic poses for Viva! Moda magazine.
The Paris 2010 fashion shows were all a buzz about a new model, "Who is that blonde girl?!" And this year the blonde waif was spotted on both men's and women's runways.

The model was in fact, a boy. At 19, Andrej Pejic is the new it girl! - uh, boy! - err BOTH! - proving that barriers of beauty are not only meant to be broken, they are meant to be destroyed.

FHM magazine named Pejic number 98 in their 100 Sexiest Women issue. Yay!- Right? Then they proceeded to belittle the super model calling him an "it" and a "thing" and requesting a "sick bucket." Boo! Very boo! What's more shocking, that Andrej Pejic is sexy and gorgeous as both a male and a female or that FHM promptly removed this article wrought with tranphobic subtext?
