Currently I’m working on my fashion design portfolio. When brainstorming blog post that I would enjoy creating, fashion and style post are within my top 5 favorite post I enjoy doing. So when doing this I realized that I may benefit from this in 2 ways, not only would I have a blog post done but also an inspirational trend board; which we use allot in the world of fashion design / manufacturing to see whats currently “trending” and “hot” out in the fashion market.

This week I used Axl Rose from Guns n Roses as my inspiration. I loved this fella’s style back in the 80s early 90s. There are several men’s closets I would love to raid and Axl’s would be one of them! My favorites were his layering of jewelry and belts, skinny pants or leggings (yes, before meggings Axl rocked leggings) paired with motorcycle or cowboy boots and of course his trade mark bandanas and aviator glasses. He would mix some pretty bold outfits together but it worked and I fancy that type of eclectic mash-up. I definitely take a page in fashion from these rocker guys of the 1980s; it was a fun time in rock fashion!

mother daughter style: into the woods

giselaandzoe7It feels great to get back into the blogging world! Especially starting with a Mother / Daughter style post which is becoming one of my favorite things to do with my daughter Zoe. Not only do we have fun getting dressed up, but we are also capturing moments in time that we can one day look back at together. It is such a remarkable experience sharing little moments like “getting dressed” with my teenage daughter. And also seeing how much she’s grown just in the last year, especially in character; she has such a sweet and humble one that I pray will continue through adult hood.

The backdrop is one of my favorite canyons to hike in the summer called Baily Canyon. I feel so lucky just having it a couple of blocks away. Just being in the midst of it brought out so many senses. We could smell sage and eucalyptus in the air. The tree trucks look like a work of abstract art. The sun rays felt so good on the skin and all the beautiful earth tone colors were eye-popping. We were excited to see and snap a photo of a hawk circling in the air, it was so graceful and majestic. Surrounded by a beautifully created world.
