Attention LA: Shop a Blogger Charity Flea Market This Sunday!

If there’s one thing I hate (among many things), it’s an awkward photo shoot but hey, when Sydne is styling it, I know I’m going to be in good hands.  This is exactly why I agreed to stand in front of a white screen wearing Sydne’s size 2 clothing (the polka dot dress is not even close to being zipped up in the back, btw) while holding my coveted beauty products.  Well there’s that AND the fact that we’re selling our stuff this Sunday at Space 1520, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit the Bill Foudation– an LA based animal rescue group.  If you’re in the area, definitely stop by because we are selling some GOOD STUFF.  And, it’s not just the two of us.  The amazing Shauna of PennyChicJoEllen Lu of Shop Tarte and Chanelle Laurence of The Penelope Times will be showing off their blogging fueled fashion retail skills. And indie designers Jenny Dayco, Shallow Fashion and Kittinhawk will also have pop up shops.

Here’s a sampling of what’s for sale AND me being a suuppper awkward model. ENJOY.                                           
                                              I can’t even with how cute Bunny looks wearing this scarf.

A big thanks to Synde for creating these amazing images and an even bigger thanks to Kelsi for organizing such a great event.  And again, this is just a sampling of some of the pieces we’ll be selling: real leather and suede jackets, trendy polka dots, CHANEL No. 5 lotion, DKNY fragrance, Urban Decay’s coveted NAKED eye palette and Jimmy Choo for H&M sandals! There will also be stacks of designer denim for $30 each (many never worn and in various sizes)!

See you all Sunday.

How a Stone wears white


The idea for this post started off as a joke but really, it’s kind of not.  Stone is an English last name; one of the first last names ever, to be exact, and given my ancestry….well, you can see why traditionally every Stone you know is probably pasty white and freckled.  It’s for this reason that I’ve always been terrified of wearing the color white…that and my pention for spilling on myself, naturally.  Putting all of that aside, my friend Sydne and I were shopping and we came across this amazing white peplum dress at H&M and I, of course, naturally scoffed at it.

Sydne: This dress would soooo good on you. Try it on!

Me: Um…it’s white.  I’m pale and spill everything on myself.

Sydne can be very convincing.  I grabbed my size (the last one, by the way) and decided to appease her by trying it on and then showing her how ridiculous it looked on me.  

To my surprise, it looked A-mazing and I ended up buying it.  Duh.  As happy as I am that I managed to wear this dress all night with out spilling anything on me, I’m even happier to discover that a STONE CAN WEAR WHITE (proof is below!)

*To note, I was seriously self-tanned in my above photo, but STILL.

Gavert Atelier Salon

If you read my blog, you know how much I love to try all of the best salons in Los Angeles and Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills is no exception.  I was kind of sick of the darker blonde I’d been sporting so I decided to go back to my lighter shade, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.  The service at Gavert Atelier was exceptional and the colorist really listed to what I wanted to change, which is always appreciated and, believe it or not, sometimes rare in a colorist.  So I’m back to lighter blonde for now but we’ll see what happens in another month or so 😉
