WOW, It's been a long time since our last post! Hopefully you all have been enjoying your holidays. We've been wrapped up with spending time with family, going to movies, shopping, gifting, baking and sewing. I can't believe it's soon going to be 2010! We wanted to get in our last shoot of the year so today rain or shine we were going to do it. It just so happened to be raining when we awoke but we ventured out anyways in the mist, over wet rocks with umbrellas in hand down to the beach. It was actually fun and peaceful, not too cold and it never really rained that hard so I guess I'd have to say it was a success : )

We also wanted to say thank you to Jessica Wu from the blog Fascinationdrop for the beautiful drawing above and write up on her blog. Go check her out she is a very cute stylish girl who is also a talented illustrator. We are sure you will enjoy her blog as much as we do.
Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year filled with Love, Peace and wondrous possibilities.

Happy New Year Paris!

  Happy New Year London!

Happy New Year New York!

Happy New Year Dubai!

Happy New Year Las Vegas!

And Happy New Year to everyone else :)

RODARTE hit Target!

I was told Rodarte was arriving in Target stores on December 20th but today I was at Target to return something and low and behold it was there! I asked a girl working if the line was just put out and she said it was, and they were allowed to put it out anytime between the 18th and the 20th. So that means check your nearest Target to see if they put Rodarte out early. I wondered if that was really the case or if the store was trying to get more holiday purchases, but who cares right? Anyways, here's what I came home with, basically all for Camilla an early Christmas present. For myself I just got the sheer cardigan it's really cute on and I ended up getting it in two colors so Camilla and I can share:)

Camilla has on the xray sequin dress and the sheer mustard cardigan
tights and socks are Free People and boots Jeffery Campbell.

Camilla is wearing the mustard Rodarte dress with the bows at the shoulders which is also so cute in the blush color it was hard to decide which was better.

New York Dreaming...on such a winters day

Every year at the Holidays I get Nostalgic for the days of living in the city. As the Holidays approached there was excitement and anticipation of what Barney's and Bergdorf's would do for their Holiday windows. During the time we lived in NYC Barney's was downtown in Chelsea on 7th ave, which was just down the street from our apartment. Their windows became a tradition to see if they could top themselves from the year before. Living in California is just not the same as New York at Christmas time, so I've had to resort to the internet every year to get my holiday window fix. Thanks to Racked.com and Zimbo.com I found what I was looking for, Hope you enjoy!

Barneys Celebrated SNL's 35 years with their Holiday windows

Bergdorf's Windows were a fantasy of beauty! I'm not sure of the theme maybe you New Yorkers might let us know, they are amazingly beautiful!

We just received our first winter storm which means tons of rain for Los Angeles. Thank God we did this shoot on Saturday well before the storm hit. But with the Holidays now in full swing we have been busy, busy, busy and that's why we are finally getting around to posting.  When we came home and looked at the photos I immediately recalled Sophia Coppola's movie Virgin Suicides, Which explains the name of the post. I am not sure if it was the light in the photos or just Camilla who seemed to resemble the young Kirsten Dunst but, we both loved the movie.  Sophia Coppola did a wonderful job of capturing the mood of story from the original novel written Jeffery Eugenides who we think is brilliant.

I am so happy the holidays are here and Camilla and I have decided to make most of our presents this year so hopefully we will get around to shooting holiday photos. Hope you enjoy the shoot it was at our new favorite Emmett spot again.

Camilla is wearing a vintage dressing gown as a dress with a tube top and leggings from Free People and boots by Miss sixty.
