Designer Trina Turk is famous for her bold mid-century prints and empirically wearable designs. But in certain L.A. circles, she’s also known as one-half of a fashion power couple -- with her husband, photographer Jonathan Skow.
The pair, who met in apparel design school at the University of Washington in 1981 (Skow ended up switching majors to marketing before graduating), conceptualize and produce all the imagery that comes out of the company — with Skow art directing, styling and photographing every ad campaign and look book (no small task, considering Turk designs ten collections a year).

It all started with a Suzani printed scarf that I bought yesterday...now I'm completely obsessed! The Suzani print is an antique decorative textile that originated in Central Asia. ~In Persian Suzan means needle. ~In Iran Suzankari means needlework.

Oprah and Ellen team up for a great show!

I caught a glimpse of the Oprah show today, which featured Ellen DeGeneres and wanted to share some thoughts on it. Ellen and her wife were both on the show today for their first interview as a married couple. I was laughing during most of the show because Ellen is so silly but was tearing up during a video showing their(Ellen and Portias) intimate wedding day. Ahh I'm such a sucker for love, beautiful music and a couple that you know will be together forever. Here is the video: you will fall in love :)



Also I love that Ellen is on the cover of O magazine! Its about time someone else was on there with her.

The Little Dress Shop Claremont, Ca

Claremont is one of my favorite places to go when I want to get away from the Orange County bubble that surrounds me. This little college town is very cultured and is home to many cool shops that sell an aray of specialty items. If you're hungry or in need of a latte there are many restaurants and cafes too. On my latest Claremont outing I discovered a store that I couldn't wait to share with you all. The Little Dress Shop The color and window displays are what caught my eye at first and when I went in I fell in love. I got to meet the owner of the shop, she was a very personable lady and allowed me to take lots of photos so you can see what caught my eye.

The accessories are fun, vibrant and have a vintage look.

If you like Betsey Johnson, Dio De Los Muertos, Vintage Glamour, dressing up and wearing flowers in your hair this place is for you!
