Most people reach adulthood just remembering the days they giggled endlessly with their best friends or got banned from whispering bc everybody knew whatever they were talking about was dang good. But my adulthood has been captured by moments where Buddy throws her head back and immortalizes our lives with her laugh in that way only someone who has known you since t-ball can. My memories of childhood are peppered by frenetic impassioned pep talks -I'd dream and dream and tell my buddy how we were going achieve the impossible; parents feared me, normal kids backed away, but Buddy laughed. She laughed and said (with ennui, yes), "why wouldn't we"? And we have, haven't we buddy? The first time she came over to my house, I told her I fancied myself a photographer (we were 13) and she said, "yeah, I'm a model...." and that was our first photo shoot. This pic is a sweet one Buddy took from our most recent photo shoot (I'm not the model, I'm the one crouched beneath her). And in honor of Jenny Murray Hooks today, enter "iwantabuddy" at check out and you'll receive 25% off through the weekend. May I suggest: the Future Mrs. Hooks, Mrs. Hooks, the Jenny, the Fenny (yes, she's the editor of a big-time mag C (hello!), but shockingly dyslexic as a child or audaciously ennui -we still don't know). So, if you find yourself with a moment today please raise a glass of prosecco for my buddy, Jenny Murray Hooks and say to yourself "Everybody needs a buddy like Buddy!"

I almost forgot to remind everybody, Trunk Show at Saylor in Santa Monica! It is such a beautiful store and I'm incredibly honored to hang there. Please go and you can touch and feel the Spring 08 collection there, all my current stock is there as well and that might be the only place in the world you can get those dresses right now. xoxo P.S. I'll be there tomorrow (Friday) 2-4 if you'd like to make my acquaintance...

Oh, the holiday season (I'm actually in the world where we still say Christmas, I'll restart).... Oh the Christmas season.... A time for reflection, a time with family and friends, a time to buy stuff for people, a time to ask your mom to buy stuff for you. A time when you think, I'm too old to be asking for things bc all I really want is that lawn put in and maybe the tiles redone in the bathroom, a little choppy choppy of the bum section if you follow me. But I digress, what I really want to say is how thankful I am for all God's given me. Especially this business of dresses, I'm really happy, really, really happy. So, I thought I'd take the next couple of blogs to share in some happy fashion moments. Please enjoy the following guest blogs. P.S. This pic doesn't necessarily have to do with this current blog, but it is green and that stands for Christmas!

I don't try to act smart, I just come off that way sometimes. But then there are days like today, when delivering my goodbyes and thank yous over my shoulder I hit the doorway with a cupcake ( it became part of my collar ) that didn't come off as smart. Or when my dear friend Vivienne (she's French-Canadian) from Montreal sends me an article she's written (see above) I respond with and I'll quote, " Oh great I'll have my husband read this to me he espeake Spanish." And there you go.
For all you who missed today's sample sale, we had a greeeeat time! There was this lovely dark haired girl, I believe her name was Renee Le Fleur -or at least that's what they told me you never know I'm very gullible when I'm tired. Anyhoo, she bought my last Camo Rosanna to wear to pick up her boyfriend who's in the army. They'll both be in camouflage... I think it's dang cute. He's a jumper, I don't know what that is but it sounds gnarly.

Everybody, Tricot (my showroom) is having a holiday sample sale. Here's the facts:
Thursday 12/6 and Friday 12/7

I don't know, like 10-5 or something?
Come, my dresses are 2 prices $50 and $125
Did anyone see Marc Jacob's invitations to his annual costume ball???? If you happened to not receive an invite I'll just tell you the theme is Arabian Nights!!?!? Now, let's not kid ourselves -I'm not so insider -I just read Vogue! But Arabian Nights! Coincidence? I'm not sure. Since my annual Costume ball is October 1st, I think the theme may now come off as past season but I'll give it to him, my theme was more Rock the Casbah and the Bedouins Can Dance... And isn't that fashion, everyone kind of dances around the same tree until some gets killed by a coconut and then we move on? I'm just wondering, this is just off the top of my head, but will he soon be having Turkey Curry Holiday Sing A-Longs?

Well, I'm looking a little rough (to borrow a word from my sister in law -Courtney) in this shot, but I can get over my personal issues to show you how sweet we are as a family. It's a very personal moment in a very public event, but this is my mom, my dad and me at the opening of the the new Channel Islands and Burton store on Melrose. It was a very big party but I didn't stay for the shenanigans, just my dads interviews et al. But the store is amazing, the boards look beautiful and it was a good representation of the world my folks created -the little surf shop I grew up in. I am very proud of them.
p.s. Dear man who took this photo and published it in Transworld, you said it was for your Christmas cards. Was that your Christmas card?
