Z Girl Can Dream

Musing on Lilly items that I will most likely never own, but was inspired to write about.
Sea & Be Seen Printed Plastic Tote $ 98.00
Despite the cheesy clear bag-ness I want this bag. It reminds me of the days in Jr High when we were this-close to having mandatory clear backpacks. You see this would have been a horrible idea because in Jr High you don't want people to see feminine products or your love letters to Johnny.





Dahpne Dress Jacquard $248.00
This dress looks interesting and super fun to wear. I think the little jewels look like candy from easter time. I love wearing strapless dresses but hate having to adjust them through the day. This dress is perfect because it looks like a strapless dress and the beaded detailing is almost like a necklace built in.



Sea Spray Halter Top $78.00
Maho Skirted Bottom $88.00
Thank god for skirted swimsuits because I have an insecurity with wearing bathing suits. If I wanted to be practically naked I would go to the nude beach, thank you. Un…

The Grilled Cheese Truck

One of these days I'm going to make a trip to the Los Angeles area so that I can get my hands on a gourmet grilled cheese from the "Grilled Cheese Truck". I have heard that the lines for the truck are over an hour wait but it's totally worth it. Let's check out the selection.
This is their plain and simple melt.


And this here is the dessert melt.

Frida Kahlo

Let's talk about Frida Kahlo. Who is she: One of the most influental female painters of the 20th century. Where is she from: Born July 6th 1907 in Coyoacan near Mexico City. Her Work: Frida stopped studying medicine and began a full-time painting career.
Frida Kahlo's home, which is also known as La Casa Azul is now a Museum that is open to the public.
In the Museum you can walk through her home and check out the interior design and artworks however there is no photography allowed inside. Outside is a wonderful garden and courtyard as well as a cafe.
In the meantime check out the move "Frida" starring Salma Hayek. This film will help you to better understand the reasoning and inspiration behind Frida's risque, erotic and pain filled self portraits.

Italian Summer Of Love

"Cool" the song by Gwen Stefani is one of my favorite songs because it makes me reminisce and feel nostalgic towards the "good old days". The song's music video is also a stunning mini masterpiece full of lust, love, designer duds and a summer spent in Italy.

Now that you have seen the video check out that were inspired by the Italian Summer of Love!

Skyline Drive, Fullerton, CA homes at sunset

While I was leaving class the other evening the sunset was so beautiful so I decided to take the long way home to enjoy the view. I drove through the lovely Skyline Drive in Fullerton California to get these shots. I live in the area so its pretty standard to drive through here. But tonight everything and every house had a wonderful glow to it. Take a look at the wonderful homes in the hills of Fullerton Below. A fun baby blue and bright white Colonial style home with Greekpediment as well as pillars and french windows.
Like I said the sunset...
The view facing the Beach as well as south Orange County.
A simple Southwestern design: Pillars, clay tile roof.
Mediterranean style home with a variety of windows and a clay tile roof, and window coverings to block the sun from the west.
A really long and narrow driveway...no thanks.
A fun 60's Cottage in Mustard Yellow with a really nice and unique Garage door with lat ice windows.
Yet another Mediterranean home.
A wonderful way to disguis…
