A Trip To Palm Springs

So Palm Springs was an amazing surprise in the middle of the desert. The drive out of LA was less than stunning and then suddenly you hit the desert. And you are in one of the most amazing landscapes in the world.

Lessons From Gilby Clarke

Lovely dinner at Amiee's house in the hills. Gilby Clarke says Ginger #1 needs to practice her guitar scales. Luckily he was able to give her a signed pick to use. Given the first album she ever bought was Guns N' Roses, she was suitably impressed and may even take heed. I have since claimed the pick. Obviously.

My Saviour from Death by Sugar

I realise that to blog about food is a little sad. I could be telling you about Paul Mcartney playing harmonica to Ginger #1, or Neice La Blonde playing drums with Gilby Clark of Guns N Roses. But actually I am pretty obsessed by the food here in LA.

I have just eaten my first proper meal in 2 weeks because the food here is so spectacularly bad. It is absolutely loaded gshmoaded with sugar. Even bread has more sugar than your average merangue and I have found it really hard to stomach. Anyway today we found Joan's On Third and my world has shifted on its axis... Soooooooo yummy! Big up Joan's!

Stripy Barnet Be Gone!

Amiee isn't the only one to migrate out to the City of Angels. Our friends Leanne and James moved out last year to set up their own salon - Galvin Benjamin so of course I had to pop by and check it out.

Travels with my gang are never boring.

Flying to LA in style and we manage to get into an air rage misdemeanor with an angry Outsized Mexican who takes issue with Ginger #2's inability to understand the concept of sleeping in the daytime with the lights on. Apparently the outrageous cost of his ticket should entitle him to flying nivarna. Ginger #2 did not see the logic in this. So Outsized Mexican loses his cool, Husband in Travel Mode gets suitably defensive and the upshot is that we get a security detail to escort us off the plane in case Outsized Mexican jumps on us from behind the baggage carosel. Think the paps got us confused with Demi and Ashton. Obviously. Rock on LA!

It's Finally Here

After much thought, long days in front of the computer screen and many changes to the order the finished AW11 Look Book is finally here! Behold it in all its glory!

The PR Dept will be busy sending these out to fashion magazines, stylists, bloggers etc over the coming weeks and come late July we'll be sending them out to our shoppers for a sneaky look at the whole collection before it goes online in August.

I know the sun has only just arrived but I can't tell you how much I want to wear this collection right now!

AW11 Look Book Looking Good, Almost

We're almost there with the AW11 Look Book. Here we are going through the first proof and making a couple of very small amendments. A bit of photoshopping magic, a bit of moving around and we're done hopefully!
