my computer has done it again, it has chosen to shut down on me...yet again there is another hump to get over and the post and updates needless to say will be slow this week..
i should be back on-line by this weekend and since my Zoe is leaving to Grandma's for spring break next week i will be cramming in lots of work to catch up from last and this week lost time..
i am also in the middle of tweaking the blog as you can tell, so my logo and all material should be centered and looking good soon..it's just one of those weeks..
thanks guys, i'll hopefully do a small post tonight.

happy mid week guys! i am way behind on my blog post but i have a ton of material i am working on and the posts will be trickling in later this weekend..
i have been SUPER stressed out these weeks trying to be super-women and do it all, trying to juggle many things at the same time and get projects off the ground..i am trying to build my small business while i work full time in the morning as a designer in the junior apparel mass market..and also be a mom to my precious 12 year old kiddo Zoe..
my church had the best sermon on Sunday it was perfect timing and directly spoke to what i'm going through right now..for all those who might be struggling with this too here's the link if you like a listen: Reality L.A. (starve your worries) it made my heart take rest...
so i'm doing a little restructuring to better handle my night and weekend schedule..my Friday's is "chick night" and are totally of limits..this is the day i take rest with my Zoe and just have fun with no outside world distractions..so i'm one day less and have come to the conclusion that i will be putting the eBay auctions on hold for now, meanwhile i will concentrate on getting the Etsy store jammed pack with new items and full of great choices for you, just in time for spring and summer..
i had the best meeting this past weekend for a side project i'm involved in and i feel so privileged to work with some great women..i am excited for all the things that are in the works and i can't wait to share it with you as they evolve..
so with that said i'll share this cute picture of Zoe in the best vintage 70's shades and spring is here with cherry blossoms popping up every where..yayyyy

my friend Karen blogged about this wonderful designer, check out her post of favorites HERE..when i saw the images and it captured my heart..just as Karen stated her designs are true to herself and her Mexican roots..she lives in Mexico, produces her line there and brings her heritage alive through her clothes so well..i am of Honduran roots and i am very inspired by the weaving, ruffles, embroidery and ribbons that are part of the "typical clothing" of our country...this is why i love Alejandra Quesada's clothes because she incorporates it so well..
she also does the prints for the textile and embroidery in her lines..go check out her stuff here at alejandraquesada.com i'm sure your become a follower..
i want everything on this runway board...you can see all the details she throws in and the colors, textile and hand-painted prints pure art..
this dress is Karen's favorite and i agree...
i have a big project meeting today, it's very exciting...can't wait till it's revealed...hope you guys are having a great weekend!

woo-hoo middle of week! i have allot of exciting projects going on this weekend, and not to mention the weather is going to be incredible...high 70's low 80's...yay so ready for it..and all the creativity happening is making me one excited camper!
so here's my round up of vintage = mass's..i thought of calling it vintage vs. mass's but then i thought it's more about the interpretation of vintage, because as you know a good chunk of fashion is influenced by vintage...top shop has ALLOT of cute stuff in stores right now..heavily influenced by the early 90's floral dress's..they also have some great prints out which one of the more popular ones we have an 80's version in our store now..
a. vintage 90's pretty tie back floral dress coming soon to Etsy
b.Top Shop Texan Rose Racer Dress
a. vintage 90's floral peek-a-boo back romper in Etsy

i love independent designers! and Dainty June is one i have had my eye on since last season. i'm sure you've seen them all over the web lately their popularity is rising..and they have just come out with their Spring/Summer 2010 collection...
i rather spend my money on indie designers then certain mega chain stores, one which tends to copy independent designers...the following are ones on my favorites list..
love the screen design
the scalloping on this is just lovely
another take on last seasons heart toggle jacket
give me bib neckline and ruffles and i'm in
love the fabric and colors on this one along with the silhouette
i think these lovely models are the designers themselves...love that they model their own designs..please correct me if i'm wrong..go check them out DaintyJune.com

as most of you know Corey Haim passed away yesterday....it was a bit shocking and not at the same time..his movies were a BIG part of my child hood growing up..a few favorites on my top 20 child-hood films..it's weird because for this weeks "chick night" Lucas was the movie we are going to watch..that was a bit of a crazy coincidence....
again so sad to lose someone so young to such senseless things..
my favorite films staring Corey Haim..Lost Boys
License to Drive
Dream a Little Dream
another film was The Watchers i could not find any pictures of it..i loved all these films..
in remembrance of him....
