“Runaways” the ONIKAI Fashion Film.

“Runaways” the ONIKAI Look Book Fashion Film is finally online!

From the designer about Runaways: “In the film the main character is being chased by her dark self and she comes to realize in the end that this dream land that her mischievous side is existing in is really reality.  It is this idea that we can not really hide from those dark parts of our selves, and I really think this idea is translated into the collection.”    
“…you can call Runaways a look book, a fashion film, a story… what ever you want to call it.  The film does not highlight the collection as a whole, but some of my favorite key pieces that helped tell the story of Runaways and vice versa, it gives the emotion and idea behind the line.”  
“This is why I love fashion so much it can not be contained in a box, it can not be cornered or limited to one idea… it is what ever us designers want it to be.”

Pampa Hi Lite Boot. Give me?

If you ever run into me on the streets of Los Angeles and I’m wearing high-tops or Nikes of any sort… you know it’s been a long day and/or that I am half asleep.  In fact I pretty much don’t like to run into anyone on the street when I have tennis shoes on (ha) I even grocery shop in some sort of heeled boot or shoe.  The only happy medium for me is combat boots or a flat fashion boot.  Yesterday I was flipping through the pages of Nylon and came across this new sea foam green Palladium boot that looks like an updated version of Timberland meets hiking boots on crack.  I love them.  I would rock these into the sunset with a leather jacket and pair of Ray Bans.  No it’s not Christmas but it’s never to early for gifts… hint? I think so.

Leopard Print, it’s a problem.

When I was helping out at The Huffington Post Weddings section as a “fashion commentator” [ha] while they were live blogging about The Kardashian’s Wedding Special, I made special notice of how much leopard print everyone was wearing.  “It’s like they’ll get sick and die if they don’t wear leopard print.”  However, let’s be honest… this is like the pot calling the kettle black.  I have some how acquired a collection of leopard print dresses (formal and casual in different color combos), tights, stockings, earrings, sweaters, jumpsuits and rings. [what’s wrong with me lol] It didn’t dawn on me that I had a real problem until I looked through my Instagram photos and realized that for every 5 photos of myself I was wearing something leopard print in at least 1 of them. [insert addiction here]  However I’m going to embrace this addiction head on like a happy alcoholic, and next in my collection I’m adding shoes…

Ombré sauce.







I’m not one to catch on to trends… When the feather earrings came along I was seriously planning a covert mission to destroy all the birds in the world as to minimize the amount of people walking around with peacocks on their ears. Gah. I usually like something before a trend starts or after it’s dead.

Cerca 2008 right before the ombré scene got big again I insisted on adding ombré tees into the Whitley Kros line when I was designing for them(blue version below in a very subtle ombré- why does that model look so pissed?) as I was obsessed with the look… and in turn they ended up being one of the few lines to bring it back after the 2004 ombré denim crisis hit. Ha.

Last year the cool thing to do was have ombré hair, and while some people happen to pull this look off like Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Bilson, & that chick from Fashiontoast I just wasn’t about it because everyone was doing it. Now that the trend is dying out I find myself obsessed with ombré once more and I am dying to add platinum to the very ends of my now super long strawberry red tresses. I’m also thinking an ombré piece for fashion week as well… Hmmm what do we think yay or nay? Either way I’m dying for ombré sauce.
