TEAM MONDO

Who doesn’t love MONDO? 

For Project Runway ALL STARS my friend Jess and I are volunteering to officially be a part of Team Mondo. I was so excited when I found out that Mondo was going to be on the show that I didn’t hesitate when they put out the word for volunteers.

You can help too by becoming a fan of Mondo on Facebook, at http://www.facebook.com/LoveMondo.

You can also join me at Beauty Bar every Thursday night for the viewing parties.

Here’s to you Mondo! Best of Luck!

Halloween Costume – Margot Tenenbaum

This year I tried to go all out and make a big effort for Halloween. I had been thinking about this ever since I was Mondo last year and had to use a belt as suspenders. A good costume is dependent upon the details.

I decided to be Margot Tenenbaum this year mainly because of my hair. For some reason, wigs are never an option for me, and I always make my costume based upon my current hairstyle. Right now, it’s a blonde bob, so it just made sense.

I knew I needed a polo dress, fur coat (faux), and black orthopedic loafers. Seemed easy enough. I searched and searched for a blue stripped polo dress on eBay and could never find the perfect one. I ended up buying a Beverly Hills Polo Club dress from Apparel Zoo. My coat I purchased from a local vintage shop in Denver, Boss Unlimited. I am in love with it and will wear it again & again. My loafers I scored with on ebay. They are Bass Loafers. Normally $149, I got them for $9!

I was so happy with the finished product, down to the wooden (cardboard) finger. I will never again not put 100% effort into my costume.

Gal Pals

Gal pals are what we all need in life. I have the best friends. I know that if I ever needed any one of them to drop everything and be there for me, they would. I would do the same for them.

Cheers to friends. Lifelong friends.

 

Lately

So I obviously have not been blogging. I wish that I was. To those who read this (family), life is a little cray cray right now.

Hopefully soon I will:
– Live in a home that I OWN
– Begin transformation of said home
– Have time to work on exciting side projects
– Begin to share with you, the interesting things that I find
