Miley returns for this shoot with photographer Lucien at Studio 3, Inc! Err, at least my inspiration from Miley returns. I channeled the country girl vibe while styling and producing this darling little barn shot. (Check out the tub full of bubbles in the back!) Our little Country Cinderella mannequin is ready to rake the hay, pluck the chickens, warsh the clothes and still make that hoedown throw down! Her get-up includes a Frankie B western button up, some great finds from Nordstrom's Brass Plum and a pair of darling boots from Target's Liberty of London line. My ace-high kickers are from Miss Sixty, the top is from F21 and those down home jeans are from Little Big. Stay tuned for more from this fun shoot but, fer now I've got to skedaddle!

I started the day by organizing my letter writing cabinet, at 3:30 I had to get Lil Star ready for ballet, finish up some cleaning at the townhouse, pick up Lil Star from ballet, then go to curriculum night. So how did I make this busy day to night transition with no time in between for a wardrobe change? A long wearing red lipstick stain from NOUBA would last all day. A cute little tank from HOLLISTER, flip flops and FRANKIE B jeans for daytime and cleaning. For evening slipped on a low slung belt by STREETS AHEAD, crawled into a cozy cardigan with saggy pockets from SUCRE SOIR, slid into my coffee colored pumps from NINE WEST that Mair gave me and reapplied lipstick. Did I accomplish everything? Didn't make the curriculum night at Lil Star's school. Her ballet finished early and I had to choose, eat or disturb all the other parents with my rumbling tummy. TERIYAKI it is!!

A Visit to Dana's Not-So-Humble Abode by Kamie Kahlo

This day was all about Dana’s new jade necklace. What to wear? I dug through her closet and found the perfect compliment! A pretty little red sweater with black ruffle detail, fabulous skinnies, sweet square-toed wine mary janes, all vintage of course. My gift to the hostess was a bottle of champagne with a hot pink ribbon that I found in my purse tied around the neck. I wore my TARINA flower with crystal detail, FRANKIE B jeans, a floral blouse from FOREVER 21, EC STAR crossed gun embroidered sweater and Mommy’s vintage burgundy pumps. What a beautiful day on the dock of Dana’s not-so-humble abode.

I was walking down the street on the way to a meeting with M. A man stopped me and said, "Hey I like your t-shirt! 'Be Happy' I like that!" Ugh. If only I could BE my t-shirt these days. It's from FOREVER21, that cute little skinny skarf is from THE GAP, my jeans are FRANKIE B in mechanic wash, my shoes are OH DEER purchased at THE QUEEN ANNE DISPATCH, the handbag is CO LAB from CHRIS KON and my glasses are a vintage purchase - I put my prescription sun glass lenses in them so I could look chic AND see at the same time. So, if you can't BE happy, wear it!!

Café Ole or Take it Black by Kamie Kahlo

Early this particular morning, I was faced with a decision; Do I wear color or put on this city’s uniform standard spanning from brown to black? I wore my favorites and then, I ran into two lovely girls in front of the coffee shop. Natalia and Maiensy stylishly flanked me in a sea of black. And while black can be a strong cup of confidence as these girls prove, I said, “Make mine a Café Ole!”

I wore my turq tank that I customized with a spicy yellow trim bib filled with multi-sized tomato-red buttons, a vintage cardigan with vivid stripes, a TARINA TARANTINO strawberry clip, a NOIR friendship charm necklace, my special edition LE SPORTSAC TOKI DOKI mini purse and my FRANKIE B rainbow jeans. I grounded all of this color with a pair of vintage cream suede HUSH PUPPIES. ¡Vivir una vida colorida! (Life is colorful!)
