With it being election day today, I wanted to highlight some of the most fashionable first ladies to walk through the White House. These women were fashion icons with their  grace and confidence through fashion forward outfits.  In our near future will their be a First Gentleman? We shall see. #IMWITHHER. Here is a glimpse of history’s most fashionable first ladies…

Sounders Fashion

Most of my blog readers know that I’m a huge Seattle Sounders fan. Today was the last home game for the regular Sounders season. Happy to say we ended with a win and we earned a spot in the playoffs. I’m so thrilled. My friend {Molly} and I have been season ticket holders for many years and have really gotten to know the players and have admired their amazing athleticism, but we also noticed their fashion. Love. Here is a glimpse of Sounders fashion {Stefan Frei, Christian Roldan, Roman Torres, Nelson Valdez, Nicolas Lodeiro, Aaron Kovar, and Jordan Morris}…

Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style

Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent {August 1, 1936 – June 1, 2008}

Tonight was all about YSL fashion.  The Seattle Art Museum presents Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, showcasing highlights from the legendary designer’s 44-year career. Drawn from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition features new acquisitions by the Foundation that have never been shown publicly before. My friend {Maggie} and I had a fashion date and really enjoyed the work of YSL – master couturier and fashion pioneer.  The exhibit features over 100 couture pieces. It’s quite spectacular. Here is a glimpse…

California Love

california

I decided to take the whole of month of October off. In the beginning of October I took a trip down south to California to visit friends/family and travel down the coast. My first stop was to see my lovely dear friend {Jennifer}.  It was so great to see her and meet her daughter {Penelope}. She is the cutest! I stayed with {Jennifer} and her awesome husband {Kosta} in San Mateo. They were such great hosts. Jennifer and I took lovely strolls down Burlingame Avenue, a lovely dinner in the city at Monsieur Benjamin, visiting beautiful Half Moon Bay and amazing playtime with little Penelope. I also was able to catch up with two of my cousins {Joey} & {Nina} for a nice dinner in Mountain View. It was a good night for the San Francisco Giants and such a great time seeing them because it’s been years!

My bestest friend {Crisa} met me in San Francisco later on that week for a girls road trip SF > LA. We had such an amazing time and saw how gorgeous the California Coast really is. For our first night, we had a lovely dinner in the city at Wayfare Tavern, a British-pub style eatery by Tyler Florence. After dinner we took a little city drive down the famous crooked street – Lombard and visited the famous painted ladies at night. We then drove down to Santa Cruz and stayed at the cute boutique hotel – Hotel Paradox.

The next morning we woke up and explored Santa Cruz. We traveled to the Boardwalk and then ventured down to Big Sur. I absolutely loved driving down Highway 1. It was so gorgeous – the views were absolutely breathtaking. We had lunch overlooking the ocean at Big Sur’s – Nepenthe.

From Big Sig we found our way to to a cute little town called Los Olivos for wine tasting. We just made it before they closed but left with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc from Saarloos House. A few miles away was a little Danish town called Solvang known for their Bear Claw Pastries and cute little clogs.  Lastly, we made it all the way to Santa Barbara for dinner at the Outpost at the Goodland Hotel. What a cute hotel!

That was an amazing road trip. California is so beautiful. I never get tired of looking at the ocean. The next day was a beach day and a Stephanie day. I went to Manhattan Beach with {Crisa} and her daughter {Chelsea}. She’s so adorable! I took a trip to the LA Museum – LACMA and saw the Guillermo Del Toro Exhibit. It was quite impressive!

That Sunday I drove down to San Diego to visit my good friend {Chelsea}.  We had a perfect Sunday of pedicures, lemonade and Pacific Beach. I loved going to the beach and hanging out on the pier to watch the surfers. It was a perfect Sunday!

A new soccer year, a new team. Last year, I was fortunate enough to partner with the USL (United Soccer League) Team – Austin Aztex. This year, it was all about the Tulsa Roughnecks. I love working on event posters.  I partnered with the team to design all the home game posters for the 2016 USL Soccer season.  We kicked it off with a vintage photo of the head coach, who actually was a Roughnek in the 80’s. Here is a glimpse of my favorite posters for the season…
