You see everyone, I'm in a bit of a hair rut. I am scarily low maintenance when it comes to my hair, preferring an air dry over a blowdry blowout and messy waves over pin straight. I'm so in need of a good hair cut & re-color. Somehow mine has become the ombre look I've known and loved, but not in a good way.
I've been pulling some inspiration for my next trip to the hairdresser (hopefully SOON!).
In Florida my surfer girl boho waves were my go-to look, but in Wisconsin there's not the same humidity and it just doesn't look as cute. These are more polished versions of my everyday look. I think I'd like to go a bit darker for fall/winter and hair cut in long layers.. and should reunite myself with my trust curling iron.
You know those people that always have the most amazing hair & they've never even dyed it? My bestie, Kelly, at Hello Boudreau is one of those people- since we were kids she has had the most beautiful thick, blond locks!
What's your go-to hair style & cut and have you ever been able to break the mold?

Thursday marks the start of my favorite time of year.. football season! It's funny, I never cared about sports at all growing up (I was more into the arts; dance, theater, & design). So, when I ended up at a hardcore southern football school (Florida State!), it surprised me as much as everyone else that I would turn into such a football fan!
I will never forget the four years of Saturdays spent watching the Noles play & tailgating and I can't wait to enjoy them for years to come as an alumni!
I also assumed that like FSU, colleges across the U.S. "dressed up" for games. After moving above the Mason-Dixon line, I learned this is a southern football tradition- and I wouldn't have had it any other way! I love getting dressed up in my team's colors and even wore a different pair from my cowboy boot collection to each game as a senior in college.
I so wish Twelve Saturdays was around when I was in college to buy my dresses at! They were sweet enough to loan us some of their oh-so-cute gameday dresses for our LPF Mag photo shoot!
Sarah, at Events Uncorked designed this gorgeous & easily do-able tailgate event-- which you can see more of in the first issue of La Petite Fashionista Magazine as well as some gameday fashion features! Best of all, it can be interpreted for any team!

If you are a first time buyer in the Fashion District, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the vast amount of options available to wholesale buyers. Especially for those starting a new business, there seems to be confusion regarding the difference between showrooms and cash-and-carry vendors.
Showrooms often represent one or various designers. They have samples of the designer's upcoming collection for buyers to view when they are placing orders. These showrooms are typically found in the buildings on 9th and Los Angeles Streets: The California Market Center, The Cooper Design Space, The New-Mart, and the Gerry Building. There are also a couple other showroom buildings in the area including the Primrose Building, the Lady Liberty Building, and the Academy Awards Clothing Showroom Building. These showrooms are always one season ahead. This means they show their spring lines in the fall, and their fall lines in the spring. For example they will be showing the Spring 2013 collections in October 2012.
Why do showrooms show collections a season in advance? Because designers who are represented in this showrooms produce their lines on a demand basis. They only produce as many pieces as they receive orders for.
If you are looking to purchase in season (you want to buy from the spring collections during spring) we suggest buying from a cash-and-carry vendor. Cash-and-carry refers to the idea of paying for your goods and taking them with you that same day, as opposed to waiting for your order to go into production and be shipped to you. Cash-and-carry vendors have already produced or imported their current collections. They are selling what they already have available. Cash-and-carry vendors usually have lower price points than you would find in showrooms, and they typically do not carry designer or brand name clothing. Cash-and-carry vendors can be found throughout the entire Fashion District, and are often referred to simply as "wholesale" vendors.
For minimums, shipping dates, and any other specific information you must contact the individual showrooms directly as these vary depending on each business.

Because of some internet problems I couldn't upload any photos on my blog lately, but I am finally here again ready to post new photos. When I see this old dad's cap, I have already known what look I would create with it. And Voila! A rebelious with touch of military outfit turn out to be more amazing than I have expected. I decided to make something unusual with my hair in order to accentuate the cap and I really like the result. From today there are only 8 days until I will get home and see my adore photographer-my boyfriend. But now I'm on my way to Tomatina, I hope I'm not gonna die drowned in tomatoes. Wish me good luck and hope I will have the possibility to make some snaps!
Love you all!
I was wearing:
Zara shirt (old)
P.O boyfriend jeans
Zara Trf bag (old)
Mango studded belt

That's my first look and I'm really excited about this.For years I've been looking this abandoned train and that challenged me to give it the movement that lacked.The outfit is simple but inspired.The colours combination is ordinery but i believe that the hairstyling and the earrings adds it a little sparkle.
