Last week Shane and I were busy jet setting from HI to LV to LA to SD. All in the name of Bamboo Sky of course! We visited our all our favs like Veronica M, Mink Pink, Brandy Melville, Evil Twin, Wild Fox, Siwy, LA Fine and so on, but we also found some super cool new lines that I can't wait to get in! Oh, and also, welcoming to the Bamboo Sky family….. Je-ffrrrreeeeey Caaaamp-bellllll (said in the most enthusiastic, Oprah kind of way) Stay tuned for our emails and facebook updates.

Playing dress up is not quite the same for a 30+ year old fashionista as it is for a 3 year old fashionista. I learned this while in San Diego this past weekend, playing the best game of dress up I EVER played with my two nieces, Ella (8) and Eden (3). When I suggested to Eden the coordinating pieces, she made me feel really uncool when she said, “No, I like this one better.” LOL!!! And you know what? It was better! Her keen sense of color combinations and effortlessly layered looks can not be taught even in the best schools. A true fashionista is born with these talents and I couldn’t have put it together better myself.
It sort of reminded me of the episode in Friends when Phoebe gets Rachel to jog “out of the box”, hands and legs flailing vigorously to the off beat. As quirky (and humiliating) as it was, Rachel realized it was so much more fun to do it that way. Sometimes I put so much pressure on myself to dress according to a standard that it gets to be more of a chore than it is fun. So don’t be surprised if one of these days I decide to wear mismatched shoes and every color of the rainbow in one outfit.
Anyways, we played and played and played. Then Eden got bored and disappeared! Hahaha! Ella and I continued the fun with the next best thing....drawing pictures of outfits.
