When I First Decided I Wanted To Work In Fashion

Don't Tell Mom's The Babysitter's Dead..
Simple plot from wiki is: "When the babysitter suddenly dies in her sleep, Applegate (as the eldest) assumes the role as "head of the household" to keep the freedom of having no parents around. She fakes a resume to get a job in the fashion industry, but proves capable and lucky enough to succeed."














 
It was just so motivating as a child to see Christina Applegate( I  loved Married With Children) working in this thing I had never seen before. It was glamorous (by 90's standard) and seemed sp exciting! I would watch this every time it came on HBO when I was 7 and I just loved it. Part of my dream was born in watching this movie!

Style Icon: Mister Rogers


Yes...Mr.Rogers...That's what I said.. He was the original hipster, or rather he was just original. With Oxfords,bright cardigans and Keds Mister Rogers was wayyyyy ahead of his time!

My trip to the New York Public Library on 5th ave with Vanessa. I always saw this library in films so I had to see it for myself. It was BEAUTIFUL, breath-taking,overwhelming --I felt like I was in Harry Potter's Chamber of Secrets!  I absolutely loveeeeee old architecture. I like to imagine what the people were like who went to this library when it was originally built.

Inspiration: Mignon Faget



When the hurricane hit in 2005, I moved to an upper-class catholic school outside of New Orleans and often the girls had this distinct jewelry that all seem to come from the same place. I was amazed by it and I learned it was of the most famous jewelrymaker in Louisiana, or the only rather --Mignon Faget (pronounced my-new fa-jay). Created and handcrafted by hand its always nice to see artist do things themselves. Nowadays every celebrity, sports player wife and god knows who else wants to make a jewelry line but can't even sketch a stick man to save their lives. I hope one day to own several of her pieces to remind me of where I came from and what New Orleans used to be.

Films About New York

I wouldn't say so much now, but at one point there was a romanticism about New York City.. The city that never sleeps, where your dreams are possible and you become yourself. Parts of that is still true but not with the same genuineness. I mean ---I wasn't there in the 50s-90s but I have read about it and listened to others around the office that were there. Anyway I am rambling lets talk about one of my favorite movies: 9 1/2 Weeks...It wasn't my favorite movie because  of the plot or the story but rather New York City being the where it takes place. Tall ceilings, Manhattan apartments, dinner parties, art shows, sex and love all in one place. Its kind of how I see my life in 5-7 years.
