Damon Dash and Rachel Roy's house pictured above ( In Style 2005 )has the ethnic vibe I love too - and in my colors. I love the stencil design on the pillars...
and the beach umbrellas in this picture from Vogue ( again - a few years back )...
Looking for lots more inspiration so please chime in! Two cents is much appreciated!

Kevin Garnett and his wife Brandi...
Our new retail space is located a stone's throw from "The Barrel" wine bar in the Colony. I was having a meeting with one of my new partners
( he is a former pro basketball player ), and as we are talking, Kevin Garnett
( Celtics player and now world champion ), strolls up to The Barrel with his gorgeous wife Brandi to enjoy some afternoon nosh and such.
We go on with our meeting and after Kevin and his wife leave, we decide that we should continue our meeting at The Barrel. ( FYI the reason we didn't go there while Kevin and his wife were there was because we knew that being summer there would be a few tourists/fans that would eventually disturb them and subsequently our meeting and it turns out we were right )
As we are talking and then enjoying some conversation with the chef, a lovely lady named Mrs. Sterling joins the conversation. Mrs. Sterling and her husband own the other basketball team in town, the L.A. Clippers.
What kind of crazy energy is that in one hour?
The lovely Mrs. Sterling
Here are some of the products we will carry:
Thirsty 4 Souls recycled, deconstructed t's, recycled wool hats and other wonderful pieces from this line.
Project Ecoart martini glasses, coasters, belt buckles and more...
Ther will be much more and I will post as I produce ( and purchase ) ...say that 10 times fast :)

Now that I have the lounge and I am repainting the patio, I need to pull together the "look"
Pam definitely has it down...
Thankfully she has the taste to go along with her budget ( or is it the other way around ).
and vintage white...
Here is the lounge chair I picked up from My local Malibu thrift store. A cast off from Pam Anderson's estate sale. Apparently her brother had taken it and decided he didn't want it, so it's mine now :)
It was a sibling of this set ( above )... I haven't washed the pad yet, I am inspecting it carefully if you know what I mean ;) Should I consider some CSI style DNA tests just for kicks? Think we might be shocked with the results? Too Costly and time consuming, but it's fun to think about what the outcome might be...

LOVE this vintage PUCCI on Nicole Richie
Lesson#1: You CAN bring back a style and have it look better than it did when it first came out.
Lesson#2 You CAN get over addiction, stop partying, contribute to society ( and charities ) and not leave your child without a mother.
Lesson #3: You CAN name your child something unique without making them feel like a freak...even when you're a celebrity.
Now go out, do something positive and look good while doing it!

Never the less, I scored. Paid only $40 ( and I know she paid waaaaaaaaay more for it ) for this special piece of Anderson memorabilia. Schedule pick up is Monday ( I will squeeze another post out of it of course ). I would have had it already if it would have fit in my Prius.
Something to look forward to ( for me ), and the past for some ( Pam ).

Well I did it - again - Yay!!!! Short hair rules ( courtesy of Rudy's Barber Shop in Santa Monica "no cuts, no nicks" is their motto ) and no fuss, no muss ( well maybe a little muss ).
I even made myself some dangly semi precious stone earrings. Yes, I said made.
I feel 100 times better, in time for my 100th post :)

Had to take the day off from posting yesterday...I am hard at work on the wrap gifts that are due tomorrow for Kerry Washington's movie "A Thousand Words"...
I have to make 125 candle tiles and 3 dozen wine glasses. They need to look good because Eddie Murphy and Nicholas Cage are among the recipients. I will have another post later though so please check in!
