#179- Stylish people + Stylish stuff = Stylish life

Peri Donch (who is a fashion designer of eco fashion brand, PERI / http://www.perithelabel.com/)  invited me to the event at her friend (Laura)’s house for “Clothing/Food/Crafts/Jewelry/Plant SALE!” today.

It was a lovely Sunday afternoon at Laura’s house in Echo Park.

Laura (she has organic food & fashion business / siptea / http://www.siptea.net/)  has a fabulous taste for life style. I enjoyed seeing her artistic stuff at her house.

Laura and Peri have many stylish friends, and I had a great time with them today.

Ms.M (she makes cute & stylish knitted products) talked about how she met her husband and how her parents met each other, her love stories are so romantic like a movie. I felt like, I saw a nice romantic movie today. She is a great story teller.

When I mentioned about the Iced coffee story (we, Japanese people love Iced coffee since more than 20 years ago, but when I came to U.S.A. in 1987, there was no Iced coffee in U.S.A. at that time) to Ms. M, she also talked …

#177- Summer 2012 is here, right?

When I am working for newspaper/magazine regarding fashion show or fashion trade show, I always have to asking myself, “What month is this?” or “Am I in summer or fall?”… I sometimes confused about the season which I am in…

Last week, when I was walking around showrooms in downtown L.A. during L.A. Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Market Week, again I was asking myself, “2012 summer is not yet, right?”

Last Monday and Tuesday, I saw many Fall/Winter 2012 fashion (clothing/shoes/accessories/hats/scarves etc), so I feel like I am ready to shop for next Fall/Winter!

By the way, when I saw many colorful 2012 Christmas Trees and many holiday gifts samples on the 12 floors at California Market Center, I really felt like in winter 2012.

The bad thing is that I got stomach flu during that week (I guess, I felt like I was in winter!)… The good thing is that (I always have a good luck for timing!) I’ve got sick after finished my article for Senken-Shimbun (Japanese major fashion trade newspaper, simi…
