Treats And Tricks

 Remember trick or treating for as long as your parents would let you? Eating as much candy as you could before bedtime? Those neighborhood haunted houses that scared the crap out of you? Trading your so-so candy with friends for the good stuff you really liked? Planning your costume way in advance? Bobbing for apples (how gross was that??), knowing which houses gave the best treats year after year (like the full size Hershey bars or bags of pennies) and watching the sky for the first tell tale signs of sunset so you could get out there? 

Yeah, Halloween is a great time to be a kid. Or in my case, at least act like one!

Wishing you all an amazing Halloween. xoxo

Weekend Reminder

Had a tough and crazy week so I was stoked when this custom made piece by Words To Live By Signs (on Etsy) arrived yesterday. I know I am really lucky to have lived right by the beach my whole life, but when things are hectic, a reminder is always good!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Barbie Gets Gnarly

This new Tokidoki Barbie is pretty cool. I used to work at Mattel Toys, in the photo department when I first started in this business, and Barbie was never this hip. This version has pink hair, tattoos, skulls, and her prickely pet "Bastardino" by her side. How they got that name passed through at Mattel is beyond me! LOL

ISTIA Interview

 Design and photo by Xavier Llanes

I first met Cindy Whitehead in the late 1970's at an L.A. skatepark, Marina Del Rey or Skatercross, I believe. She was decked out in the latest Sims Team outfit and putting her moves out there along the boys that she was busy jockeying for a drop-in into the bowl. Those that were there know what I'm talking about- a group of A-pesonality kids jacked up on sugar, surfing, skating and other things all trying to get a run before the next dude or girl, which was either Cindy or Vicki Vickers. Cindy would get her fare share of fun only by trash talking the bro's (which she's still quite good at!) then dropping in while their heads turned in puzzling astonishment. In the Dogtown days of yore one had to cut some pretty sharp teeth to be included into the pack and Cindy's were quite razorlike when necessary.

She was the token female on the LA team, aside from Edie Robertson in Santa Barbara and held her own in many locations. I have remained friends and in touch with her after skateboarding as we both went into the fashion industry to seek out new horizons and careers. She is still one of the top wardrobe stylists going and is always on the move, job after job. We've shared many laughs over our 30+ year friendship and I don't expect it to slow or stop anytime soon. She was a great skater, is a great stylist and a true friend whose shooting star trajectory has paralleled my own for years. Life is a trip and mine has certainly been enhanced by Cindy's friendship.

Brad Bowman October 19, 2011.

So damn stoked to end my week with this!  "I Skate Therefore I Am" posted this interview with me today, as part of it's Girls Appreciation Month. I may piss off the boys with some of my "pro girl" comments, but what else is new?  Just remember - "Girls rule the pool". Ha! 

And how damn cute is pro skater Brad Bowman, with his lengthy quote for me above? The guy shreds and I am very lucky to have people from skateboarding like him as my friends. xo

Check out more photos and the interview HERE.

Gold Rush

Tried these shoes on at Zara when I was in Atlanta - gorgeous on but didn't fit me well. But I think that gold clutch could be a nice addition for the holidays. Thank goodness for Zara being online now.

These are the final shots from the Wrangler shoot I was on a few month back in Deactur, Texas. Fun shoot, awesome people, and a cool small town. Love how the shots turned out.

White Trash Beautiful

Went to the W Hotel in Hollywood last Thursday to hear Richie Sambora and Kimberly Caldwell perform & see the White Trash Beautiful fashion show  Had some amazing drink they were serving (see photo near top of post) it was obviously good as I took a bunch of abstract snaps of my outfit (see next photo after vodka pix), which I never do.  In case you are wondering.. I was wearing a Thomas  Wylde top, Haute Hippie vest, & The Row leather leggings. I have to say that the people watching was amazing - everythig from Dallas big hair looks, to playboy girls, to edgy rockers girls, to guys in top hats - all & all it was a pretty fun evening. 

Oh yeah - did I mention I did drive thru and got Chick-Fil-a before we valeted the car? Yeah I am fancy like that. LOL
