The Grey Gardens Top

I’m obsessed with the Grey Gardens print so much I’ve designed jackets, dresses and tops with it, and it graces all of the fabrics so beautifully. This particular top is a light summer style with a slim fit and I love it paired back to my trusty cargo pants, a bright lip and nail, and some simple jewelry.

The Messy Up-Do

A classic, feminine style that accentuates a long lovely neck—- the key is to make it look effortless, though it’s not. Hairstylist David Keough explains how to achieve this look.

On damp hair, spray a little John Frieda Root Booster on the roots and a little Fine To Full Blow Out Spray on mid lengths to ends. Throw your head over and use your hands to create texture (you don’t need to use a brush at all through this process). Once hair is dry, throw your head up. Use a little dry shampoo on the roots to create more texture. You will see your head looks messy, but that’s the point. 

Have an elastic handy and pull into pony tail, split the pony into two and twist them around themselves, loosely. Secure with a couple bobby or french pins. Now the secret is, once it is all in place, pull it apart to finish the look. This is a versatile style that can be worn day or night, and could be gorgeous for a bride on her big day by just placing some beautiful flowers into the side of the notch.

Like Fine Wine
Like a true creative genius and style icon, David Bowie has quietly and surprisingly released a new single and video from his upcoming album, on his birthday, and I couldn’t be happier..anyone who knows me knows what a huge inspiration he is for me. I did meet Mr. Bowie once and was overcome with nerves —-couldn’t believe he was there in front of me… the voice…the eyes…the legend, David Bowie. Looking forward to everything he has coming up: the album, the videos, and hopefully, the tour! xx rt

Something in the way you Love me won’t let me be
I’m not one of those designers that sees a movie and then the next collection looks like, say, Barbarella, but I love when I recognize a style inspiration in my designs…. Madonna’s early videos, especially the look in the Borderline video —- huge influence on me!  I loved the neon socks and pumps, animal print skirt, black tank —-
Feels like I’m going to lose my mind….
