Shopping for antiques at LISA'S is always fun. (If you are in the Seattle area, you HAVE to check out her gorgeous finds today and Saturday at 416 W. Comstock at the top of the hill in Queen Anne.) Since mornings are a bit chilly these days I wore my motorcycle jacket from FOREVER21, HORN skull cigarette jeans, HARLEY DAVIDSON boots, and my customized black tank. I bought this one at TARGET for a few bucks and embellished it with gingham ribbon that I sewed all the way around the back and tied in an adorable bow then I finished it up with a dotted mini ribbon and teeny tiny black and white baby buttons. I am coveting a great cowskin jacket that Lisa had me try on. (Had her put it on hold but, who am I kidding?) My living room is filled with her great pieces like these great Chinoiserie finds: the black screen I use in front of the fireplace, the amazing black and gold desk in the corner, even the art books and Chinese bust! Lisa even spotted the painted black chair with orange upholstery. She knew it would be the perfect compliment to my Hermes table from GREAT JONES HOME. Don't forget to check out Lisa's cool stuff!!
Well, I'm off to another shoot! A girl can never travel lite these days and especially if she is a stylist! In the top layer of my kit I have sterile sprays: brush cleaner and rubbing alcohol. Of course next to that is hand sanitizer in a lovely vanilla bean scent. Some gum. (When you are doing someone's makeup you should always have fresh minty breath!) 12-14 different colors of foundation, 8 colors of eyeshadows, 6 different makeup brushes, several lipsticks, stains and lipglosses, cotton swabs, concealer, makeup wipes, safety pins, mascara wands, and pencil sharpeners fill each cubby and that's just the TOP layer. What do I have in my red suitcase? Hair necessities: paddle and round hair brushes, goodie combs, a skinny barrel curling iron and a fat barrel curling iron, flat iron, hair spray, pomade, hair cream and oil, haircutting drape (to protect the wardrobe from makeup application) and scissors just in case someone needs a little trim. And what do I wear? For comfort I am wearing a JOVOVICH HAWK striped dress with a STREETS AHEAD belt over black leggings and HARLEY DAVIDSON motorcycle boots. (Brought my FOREVER21 sweater just in case it gets chilly in the studio.) Are you sure you still want to be a stylist?
Oh my! Where have I been?! Today I am wearing Lil Star's red and black skull and star headband purchased at LILY'S PAMPERING SALON, a fun rag skarf, supercute vest from TARGET, a BURTON long tee that Cherry gave me, jeans and my HARLEY DAVIDSON boots; on my lips, Sweet Jelly in #150 Sugar! from RIMMEL LONDON!
ZETO muslin babydoll that I had dyed- don't you love the cool irregularities? I do!! THREE DOTS black leggings, HARLEY DAVIDSON motorcycle boots- yes, we had a motorcycle when I bought them circa before the birth of my daughter, boys size RALPH LAUREN POLO puffy jacket, black patent leather KOOBA handbag. Around my neck is a necklace that I bought from CONTEMPO CASUALS, circa 80's
