This past July, the VHCLE magazine crew and I threw a Launch party in Sacramento. Though it was our first, and really a test run for things to come, we were pleased with the outcome. Great music, awesome local vendors, and some amazing talent coming down the runway. I was in charge of making sure the fashion show went smoothly...and I think it did ;) Needless to say, it was a great opportunity for anyone who was there to get involved with some of the fashion talent emerging out of the Bay Area. I say, keep your eyes out for Velvet Leaf and Van de Neer. Velvet Leaf is a female duo that makes some of the most BEAUTIFUL clothes out of organic and recycled materials. If you saw these items you would surely realize that recycled and organic no longer comes with the stigma it used to. Check out there stuff at www.velvetleafclothing.com and try and keep yourself from ordering EVERY SINGLE ITEM!! I have my eye out for this great little black long sleeved pullover with hood and white ruffle detail at the collar. As for Van de Neer, designer Nicole is working her way up there. Her show was by far the most fun for me. Maybe because my long lasting obsession with Alice in Wonderland and the fact that her clothes conjure up whimiscal, pastel colored leiderhosen and fairytale children. She sent her models down the runway with a projection behind them of images from Disney's Alice in Wonderland. It was all very fun and Im happy to have been apart of it.

Recently, my guy has been re-evaluating his style. He turned 26 this year, moved from the beach to the city, and realized that what passed in sunny San Diego doesn't always work in windy San Fran. I have always loved the way he dressed, but fully supported an upgrade. As we were shopping around I couldn't help but notice how fantastic he would look dressed a little less Spiccoli and a little more Paul Newman. Always looking cool, clean cut, and yet just rugged enough, Paul Newman is my dream man style. His staples included V-neck sweaters, fitted chino's and trousers hitting just at the ankle, Chuck Taylor's or oxfords, and tight, white tees. My guy didn't need to make too many adjustments as he was well on his way to achieving this look.
Paul Newman was always an active man and needed comfort to be key. Never a fan of over sized, he is a vision in tailored clothing, showing of his athletic yet slim physique. He was either on a sailboat, racing a car,horseback ridding or shopping with the love of his life, longtime wife Joanne Woodward.He was a very handsome and talented man and he will be missed. But guys, take note, this is how a man should dress!

Kirsten Dunst has been one of the young actresses whose personal style I have both admired and related to over the years. Her tried and true staples consist of black Ray Ban Wayfarers, Chuck Taylor's, and white v-neck tees. On her downtime she is always photographed looking like she just rolled out of a great concert at a small venue, and her red carpet look speaks of effortless, timeless glamour and just the right touch of artistic flair. Hair always perfectly undone whether she's traipsing around in chucks and jeans or sauntering down the red carpet in Chanel and Lanvin. Kirsten is a girl that all of us other girls can relate to. She seems to not splurge on every trend but rather wear the classics. She is that cool girl that you want to hang out with, sip an iced coffee and peruse the record store. This must be why Boy by Band of Outsiders made her their spring spokesmodel for all of those to die for, menswear inspired clothes. And also why Sofia Coppola counts her as her leading lady. And possibly her coolness could have contributed to the honor of getting to portray DEBBIE HARRY in the Blondie movie. I am so so jealous...
