Hot Sauce by Kamie Kahlo

Lindsey Wixon's Ruby Pout

A must have in your cosmetic "wardrobe" is a long wearing red lipstick. I love Nouba's Millibaci lipgloss. It can be dabbed on with your finger to create a rosy stain or you can go full throttle and use the wand to seal your hot kiss. Millibaci actually means "millions of kisses" and that is exactly where your pretty pout will lead you to. Muah!

Today's AdelitaStyle Self Portrait by Kamie Kahlo

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!!

styling 101

step 1 • don’t neglect the body, especially in an athletic shot
step 2 • results! look how great those legs make the shoes look!
step 3 • the perfect cast; Justin as photographer, Adam as assistant, and Lil Star as ball girl
step 4 • after the perfect shot, it’s time for a wardrobe change
step 5 • game ON!

When photographers and stylists have a little down time... they do more of the same! Justin had a great idea for a super plastic, in focus athletic shot and when I saw the model Aunjoli's headshot, it was game on! For these shots, I didn't want to over do makeup and hair. Simple was best, shine was crucial. I used baby oil gel for her body and MARC JACOBS shimmer blush for the tops of her cheeks and high points of her bone structure, some pretty Nouba eyeshadow, super shiny beige NOUBA Sweet Kiss gloss and just a dash of black mascara did the trick. I swept her hair up into a neat ponytail and added an ADIDAS headband in plum. For her clothing, I chose a plum sportsbra as a top (she definitely had the abs for it), NIKE sweatbands and a kid's extra large tennis skirt in navy and plum (it was slim pickens at the stores), the shoes were PUMA. The second outfit was simple, a NIKE lime green sport top, adorable drawstring side shorts in black and, believe it or not, some DR. SCHOLL'S tennis shoes with a smidge of lime to pick up the color of the court. It was love, love all the way!

Sadly, this is our last kitty blog for this week. Since I post my outfits every day, some of you may have been wondering, "What did she wear this week?" Take a look at this 5-day Pick Up. True to our theme, I wore something Hello Kitty every day. Monday was a SUCRE SOIR butterfly top in jade with a brown tank top underneath and a small crystal framed PINKHEAD necklace. Tuesday I had an interview and shopping for a photoshoot so I dressed a little more professional: THREE DOT super soft modal faux wrap, MAE wool city shorts, my BUFFALO EXCHANGE boots and a special PINK HEAD ponytail necklace. Wednesday was my casual day. I wore a HOLLISTER pink terry tube top and my favorite PINK HEAD rainbow necklace with chunky lucite chain. Thursday I paired my PETRO ZILLIA silk striped shirt with my LTB skinny jeans and STREETS AHEAD pink cowhide belt with crystals, on top was the famous PINK HEAD necklace worn by CAMERON DIAS. Finally, Friday was another comfy day, picking up props and playing video games with LIL STAR in an exclusive TARINA TARANTINO PINK HEAD super sheer t-shirt!!
