Mac + Manolos

Since I don't have a style post for the last two days, I thought I'd explain my blog header and background and why I think it embodies the spirit of this blog. I went to photography school at Brooks in Santa Barbara and I completely forget the assignment details, but it looks like some sort of advertisement class and this is what I shot. If I can remember correctly, I got an A :)... This is my friend Venessa. We got her make up done at Mac Makeup counter in the Nordstrom on State street and borrowed my aunt Mimi's Manolo heels! I posted my camera on a tripod and blasted the music! Then I digitally composed her in. This is the balcony of my apartment, those are my jeans shorts and yes we drank all of those bottles of champagne ourselves!

You know you're fabulous when...

Being fabulous is having fabulous friends. My friends are each and every one of them...more fabulous than the next! I've done a post {here} on my fab friend Jill and her shopping addiction, I've spoken about my friend Stef {here} and then I got a text from my friend Matthew {here's a post on him too!} that made me think of doing a "you know you're fabulous when" parte deux in honor of Matt. So here you have his text message and accompanied photo...

Me: Hey do you have any photos of Whitney in the COCK SUCKER tee shirt I got custom screen printed for her birthday?
Me: I need one :)
Matt: Haha.
Matt: No, I wish I did. I'd send it to you in a golden envelope.
Me: I'm going to reinvent that shirt for her and I. We were just talking about it and she lost it.
Me: And you. You want one too now don't you? ;)
Matt: Rad. New digs. When are you and Kelsen gonna visit? I'd let you two take over the master suite in my Brooklyn mega-loft.
Matt: Rustic Industrial Glamour.
Matt: And there's room for all (Mona too!)
Me: Dude is that a stack of Veuve? Spoiled bitch!
Matt: People know what I like. It's the base of my food pyramid.

And there you have it, fabulousness! Hope this made you laugh! Happy Thursday!

{and here is a rough mock up I did in Photoshop for the people curious about the shirt discussed above!}
