I just got back from Los Angeles (85 degrees) where I visited my sister, Celeste, and her husband. We always have a great time even though we fight A LOT! It’s a ‘control thang’ and of course, the misunderstanding of each of our ability to control! My sister is in Physical Therapy. She works with others to manipulate their body and muscles to get them perky and mobile again. I give her credit because I know for a fact I would be unable to do her job.
Celeste enjoys my job though! The colors, the prints, the styles, the fashions and trends we see as I drag her around town cruising Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice, Robertson Blvd & Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, & Melrose Ave in W. Hollywood. We see International and Indie designers with talents I want to emulate and become inspired by. I want my own designs hanging next to theirs. To see the bounty of creative design helps me think in new ways. Seeing how others have taken leather and added diamonds to places I would have never thought about! Buckles, and Fringe, and so much Tie Dye I wonder if I am on an acid trip! Longer length skirts and dresses, leather trim on everything, fur, lace, and lots of silky draped tops. Earth tones with dirty jewel tones and every color in between are what we see on our shopping extravaganza. There is virtually a store for every taste in fashion!
This is what I love about Showroom. We have a bounty of creativity and something for everybody all in one magnificent boutique. The variety of discriminating shoppers we get the privilege of working with is both interesting and rewarding. I have to say it is truly a honor to have my designs hanging next to the other designers garments that make Showroom inspiring and very special.
Thank you and Good night. I have jet lag,
