Sales, On Sales, On Sales: This Weekend's Discount-Shopping Guide


It seems like everyone and their mamas are already drafting those wish lists and checking them twice (it's not even mid-November, people!). So, why not take advantage of these pre-holiday discounts and pick up something special for yourself while you're at it? We suggest you clean out that iCal, because between the home decor, menswear, and (of course) a slew of options for the ladies — this weekend is shaping up to be one for the checkbooks. Consider this an advanced apology to your Amex!

The Pop-Up Your Beau Will Appreciate
Nothing ruins a shopping buzz quite like a boyfriend that's bummed by the whole experience. So, why not kill two birds with one stone by hitting up Satine and perusing some guy-centric gifts? The Third Street spot will be hosting a six-week-long pop up with Apt2B and Alpha where tons of BF-approved apparel, gadgets, and home decor will be on the block. A two-fer that'll have you off of Santa's naughty list in no time!
When: Now through December 31, Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays, noon to 6 p.m.
Where: Satine, 1508 Abbot Kinney Boulevard (between Milwood Avenue and Palms Boulevard); 310-450-6218.

Support The East Coast With A Colorful Purchase
There are endless ways to aid in Sandy relief efforts — especially with all of those wish lists to attend to! Tomorrow, TenOverSix will be hosting a trunk show with Jordana Warmflash of Novis while displaying new textile work of Brooklyn-based designer Alicia Scardetta. 10% of all Novis sales will be donated to City Harvest, an NYC charity that brings food to the hungry. Although we're nearly 3,000 miles away, every bit of help counts. Let's take care of each other (and take care of our closets, too!).
When: Saturday, November 10, 3 to 6 p.m.
Where: TenOverSix, 8425 Melrose Avenue (at North Croft Avenue); 323-330-9355.

Snag Discoutned Jonathan Adler From Your Couch Or At The Cash Register
We just can't get enough of Adler's fun and funky home decor. Between the pottery, rugs, and knickknacks, there's no way we're missing this friends and family shopping event. If you're the type who prefers to swipe your plastic virtually, then don't forget the discount code (FF2012) to receive 20% off. But, we highly suggest you spend some time at the L.A. outpost — something unexpected will undoubtedly catch your eye.
When: Friday, November 9 to Sunday November 11
Where: Jonathan Adler, 8125 Melrose Avenue (at North Kilkea Drive); 323-658-8390.

Time To Stock Up On Trina Turk
This Cali gal's got SoCal style on lock-down, and we can't wait to raid the latest sale for $20 samples, home accents, and vibrant menswear (you may even spot one of us wearing this bold bow tie during an upcoming fete!). Our tip: Hit up the decor and accessories before making your way to the racks, that way you can secure that scented candle for your mother-in-law and an ice bucket for your newlywed cousin. Happy shopping!
When: Friday, November 9, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, November 10, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Trina Turk, 3025 West Mission Road (near Westminister Avenue); 626-236-5950.

Buddy System: Splendid And Ella Moss Pair Up
The ultra-comfortable Splendid and the boho-inspired Ella Moss are once again teaming up to host their epic bi-annual sample sale. And, to keep customers on their toes, both brands have added some new merch, including men's (Splendid Mills), children's (Splendid Girl and Ella Moss Girl), and toddlers (Little Ella and Splendid Littles). Looks like your entire shopping list is accounted for at this single sale. Score!
When: Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: The Cooper Building, 860 South Los Angeles Street (at East 9th Street), 11th Floor; no phone.

Big Buns. Loud Spots.Smile Sometimes.

That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.

 Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle.

 Not out of pride, inability, or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are."
– Paulo Coelho

All work/No play? Janelle Monae Private Event

Until last week, I was never invested in Janelle Monae's movement. I must admit, that woman is a powerhouse and creative inspiration to the world.

Thank you H.KL. for the amazing VIP and for being so sweet!

Image Consultant Chronicles:VOGUE Magazine * Express Event : Daniele Watts & Erica Dasher

This past week- In between Teen Vogue Young Hollywood event prep, Blackmen Magazine shoots, Rodarte runs and a fiasco of awkward moments, I was able to pull some great things for Daniele Watts!

Her and BFF, Erica Dasher ( Jane by Design) looked amazzing at both the Vogue Mag/Express event and Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party. I love Daniele's ability to keep it hipster/chic in even the most upscale dresses.

Style Alert:Daniele Watts of WEEDS-People StyleWatch Denim event

My client, Daniele Watts from Showtime's, Weeds, looked amazing last night at the People StyleWatch denim event! The look I created for her was originally for a funky event hosted by Cartoon Network but... this look had a plan of it's own.

The trendy actress wore high wasted sketch denim jeans, Urban Outfitter pumps and a sheer polka-dot blouse with an adorable vintage belt. D is definitely a great gal to work with-she makes Image Consulting  easier than ever!

On D:

  • Daniele Watts has joined the cast of Showtime’s Weeds for its final season, as Angela Mullen, described as quirky, alluring and mischievous, and love interest for Shane Botwin (Alexander Gould), whom he meets at the academy. Watt’s first episode aired July 8 with seven more to come.You'll recall that Ms Watts also is part of the ensemble cast of Quentin Tarantino's highly-anticipated and hotly-contested slave revenge narrative Django Unchained playing a relatively minor role as Coco, which will be her big-screen debut - she's done mostly TV and shorts work before this, and her resume begins in 2008, so she's really just getting started.
 But she's also done some theater work.Worth noting is that Daniele co-starred in that dark, twisted melodramatic short film that sparked a sea of impassioned comments all over the web, wherever it was posted - The Strange Thing About the JohnsonsRemember it? Sure you do! It was one of S&A's most popular posts in all of 2011!Daniele's role in that was also peripheral, playing I believe the wife of the adult son who was molesting his father.So she's going from appearing in one of the most talked about short films of 2011 to featuring in what will likely be one of the most talked about feature films in 2012, going into 2013.

Sorry I haven't been updating my experience at Rodarte- so much has happened since I started working with the designers.

Honestly, the Rodarte team is amazing! I am learning and growing so much. We just finished prepping for NYFW and Rodarte showed amazing pieces this past week ( Fashiongasm?)

On another note, between styling and Fashion PR, I have had my hands full.
