We Don't Do Morning in Malibu

Morning television has never influenced any aspect of my life.

With the rise of the internet, television took the fall.

Even the Good Day L.A. girls got canned cause we weren't paying attention anymore.

( Remember - you heard that here. )

So when I began pondering what to wear on set for my client's campaign shoot with Vogue published photographer Kelly Cappelli...

Needless to say, my influences were more Alexander Wang...

than Good Morning America....

If you read my last post, you saw my recent fashion fascination with Kurt Cobain.
Kurt's inner fashionista continued to inspire me as I entertained Nirvana-esque, grunge chic for my on set style.

 So, while I researched 90's grunge chic, ( like, I remember it, I just don't really remember, remember it ) Google images came in handy, but they kind of co-mingled some punk-chic with grunge-chic, and with punk/grunge chic came Tom Binns... and with Tom Binns came... Kelly Rippa. 

Kelly Rippa?




We don't even do morning t.v. in Malibu!

But there she was, Google was right, Kelly Rippa in a simple black blouse, in all her Tom Binns chic/punk/grunge glory.

Yes, I know you can barely see it, but truuusssst, it's the one.

All I could think of was...

"Has the Kelly RippaXTomms Binns collab ruined my chances of ever achieving peace again?"

"Will I be able to move on with my DIYs without underlying issues/nightmares caused by this morning 
'fashion madness'???"

More importantly... "Could Kelly Rippa be my fashion soul mate?"

: 0

If there is one thing I know about soul sister style, it's that you can meet them in person... and just know, and there's some you don't have to meet... and you and just knooooow.

I meeeaaaan - even the February issue of Elle magazine featured Kelly.

Am I missing something or am I on to something???

After I got my emotions to a less fragile place and my appetite back, reality set in.

Either I needed to do a "pull" ( stylist speak for borrowing clothes for a shoot ) - or I need to pull it together...

...and I did - I pulled it together So. Cal style -  a DIY on the fly.

At the end of a successfully styled shoot deep in Scottsdale...

...a client campaign complete with chic.

"Morning" just may be the new muse!
