more little black dresses

the best little black dresses in my closet
I treasure are the ones I have found 
when I haven't been looking
Wearable jersey fabric is always a favorite in this unexpected hot October weather
Now all I need to decide is what shoes to wear

Hello hot loves, with temperatures scorching here in L.A. the last thing I was looking for yesterday was a little black dress. But, I have to say walking by Ann Taylor ,  and seeing one of my favorite redheads, Karen Elson's pretty face, brought me browsing and leaving with two little black dresses that made me forget the heat.
Another healthy alternative to forget the heat is just go with it. Instead of waiting for the cool down in the evening. I left the doggies in air conditioned bliss while I sweated it out in a new yoga class. A great way to end my day and wake up feeling the nice pull of stretching. What better way to be inspired by looking good in those little black dresses, right? How's the weather in your hood?

inspiration {mad men-behind the scenes}

As a hairstylist I have mentioned before here and here how much I love the behind the scenes action
Taking a break from my usual high heels and putting on some sneakers this weekend
and some comfy lounge wear too
wouldn't mind having him join me, but it will probably be Bruno
 I know who loves these old school smokes
I hope you have a great Sunday, whatever you do!

 I love this era, big hair, tight skirts, high heels and big bosoms I fit right in.  Love me some Frankie and Tony and a nice piano bar  here with some old school cocktails like this please.. Thank you for all of your visits and lovely comments you make my week and keep me inspired..

inspiration {free people fall} + {hair tips}

free flowing waves and ruffles
a layered vest
feminine braids 
Socks transformed from the runway

For my every day work wear I am slowly bringing my favorite pieces like these above to my ever growing sparse summer wear. How about you?

I recently mentioned I am removing clutter in my abode here.  A 
little clarifying goes along way in hair care as well. Do you notice that your hair feels a little dryer lately? The change in seasons does take it's toll. Here are my favorites for Clarifying your scalp:

 Frédéric Fekkai apple cider clarifying shampoo

Redken Pre Art Treatment with fruit acids to clarify and remove excess buildup. Excellent before a color/or chemical service.

So much love in this little bottle

After a good nourishing clarifying treatment I find one simple product is all you need for great styling and shine. This oil is great for smoothing with hot tools too.  What's in your hair?

work + play {red hair recipe}

Life can be glamourous and glitzy with all of the frenzy of work a little play is always in order
beautiful lighting inspires me at work
so do clean lines and open spaces
taking steps to restore some harmony to my abode
and visions of red hair stuck in my head
 lots of memorabilia, a history of my past but less clutter in all aspects of life will be part of my future

a reward with a spontaneous dinner  and drinks here
are you ready for fall love?
I can't get enough of the beautiful Karen Elson, my favorite redhead more here.
 This Wella formula is a great balance for warm and cool redheads.

 More amber color lust here in these heels  I can see myself haircutting in this fall

inspiration {runway hair}

The beauty of fashionable wearable hair

at first sight I thought she looked like the lovely Alicia Silverstone, don't you think?

I love it all from the frontal view to the back what every one sees as she walks off the catwalk

Checking out the latest runway looks inspires me in and out of the salon
bump it up
finding balance with hair is crucial, as in life..
a little white residue from baby powder on hair to create a matte look
a little help from an assistant is priceless with longer wafts of hair like this
I get tips from my colleagues and even my mom, she is a big fan of longer hair pins
concentration is key even with the paparazzi around 
nothing like a fully stocked make up kit

rosy cheeks pink + chandelier haven

Did you know I painted my bathroom as pink as this sheer curtain and these pink frocks below?
 Yes it took a little getting used to, but now I love it! The color I chose is called rosy cheeks
My intention was to give a rose glow to the room, great lighting is essential when applying make up
This flamenco shower curtain made it feel like home, now all it needs is a chandelier
like the one in my bedroom,
 Love this ruffled bedding, more girly sheets here.
