on Thursday asked if I would do a post about my sense of style.
this how my love for vintage began...
when I was twenty eight I took a trip to Las Vegas
and met one of my dearest friends who is a celebrity
bodyguard. Finding out that he lived in Los Angeles and I
Orange County we decided to stay in contact after my return
He had traveled the world and had such a great sense of style
you know how refined the taste of an Englishman is!
One day he phoned asking if I would like to go to a wonderful
flea market on Melrose Ave. I said "whats a flea market?"
He replied " its a place where you will catch a lot of fleas"
I said "ewww why would I go?" he replied "trust me you will
love it" and he was right I was in LOVE...
my style is simply based on what I love,
what speaks to me when I am out
I buy nothing I would not put in my own home.
I do have a masculine sense about me so I am
very drawn to industrial and items that
are statement pieces...
even as a young child my mother would tell me
that I had a good eye. I never understood till now I always thought
" actually doesnt she mean I have two good eyes"...
I love how my eye sees beyond the purpose of the object
and will bring forth a new way to showcase it
I stylize like I dress
Shoes first, then the outfit
I know that sounds crazy but I pick the shoes I want to wear
each day and build my wardrobe around that...
Normally I stay neutral in color
but this old salvaged green mirror called my name...
this White desk that I refinished found a new home today
I spent hours sanding to achieve that classic worn look
that I wanted for it...
thankfully I found a rustic oval table out
in the garden at the store to
replace it with till I finish a few large pieces that will
debut in February...
this farm table spent hours upon hours with me as we
groomed her for the debut she made this morning
in my second space...
I will be posting the winner of the "blog makeover" Giveaway
To the Orange County Gals
Country Roads will be open tomorrow from 10-5
the dealers have eye candy that is
knocking it out of the park!
to my dearest Murray thank you for taking this "puppy with big paws" and
showing her how to find her sense of style!!!
all grown up now
