Hair-First part the hair and while doing pigtails, weave a ribbon in the braid on each side. Then tie and twist around in the back. Pin it all in.

Here's the thing, sometimes I get an idea in my head about certain looks or clothes and they stick. This will forever be my Star Wars sweater. There are also times that my brain decides to just go all in and create a look based on something else that might not be everyday fashion (in this case Star Wars). This outfit should be called "going for it" or "Christi will use any excuse." Right down to the hair. Yes, I walked around feeling like Padme/Leia. Yes, it made my day just that much better.

I still get rather cold in spring weather. For work, a new location means stairs or warm or cold rooms. I like to think of options for shedding the layers. It may seem that I can't commit. Maybe. Except for color, I definitely commit to color. 

Music Monday

Ever look ahead at the week and think ohhh I don't want to do all of that. Usually after I finish a gig it's a snap back to reality and the mess that I sometimes (all right, most of the time) leave for myself while filming. It may look like a tornado of clothes, paper, magazines, shoes...the list goes on. The Saturdays (from the UK) generally will make their way into the rotation of music to get me moving fast.

Well, I had caught up with outfits a little bit ago and now, once again, I'm behind. This particular one happened on a beautiful day at work. We filmed up in Ojai where I played with horses mostly. One can hardly expect much work from me when horses are around, unless the work has to do with the horses. I also like to stop for little adventures whenever I can and luckily I had a friend with me who feels the same way. We came across this gate and then climbed down to the sound of water; a little stop on our long drive home. Even if I'm not in the most appropriate clothes for climbing, I climb. Apparently, I also do poses from several different things. You might be able to spot these: Carmen Sandiego and The Sound of Music.

Music Monday

Well, I made it through a tough month. I've come out the other side into freedom. Learned a lot, found new footing, and made new friends. So worth it. "Clean cup, clean cup. Move down!"

This song by Macklemore is very well known and quite catchy. But what if you put a twist on it?

Music Monday

I hope you all had better Monday than I did! It was a tough one. There are times that I have inklings of the way people are or how things will be. Or, basically when I don't trust certain instincts or feelings that I have. This week is one of those weeks in which I am reminded that I need to trust those the first time. While not a pleasant lesson to learn I'm always learning...

I had a request to put together some Coachella outfits (hi Kate!). While I can't go (sad) I can put together outfits (fun and much more affordable). Putting together light outfits that help you stay cool and shield you from the sun is important. But let's throw some trends in too. Sheer, black and white, and gladiator sandals. For good measure, being a rock concert after all, add some fringe, floral, and tribal prints! Also, don't forget sunscreen. If you are anything like me, your skin has not seen the sun in ages. Living like the vampire I am.

Hello dresses! Now is the time I start thinking about all the dresses I haven't been able to wear. I put them on and then go ah! it's cold. But this day it was about throwing a sweater on instead of tights to help that. I know that most fashion bloggers wear heels with every outfit. While I wish I could, most of the time my activities during the day do not lend themselves to heels. Flats it is. I freely admit that I can't walk around in heels for 10-12 or more hours. It's good to admit ones strengths...and weaknesses, right?

Aside from working on set, I have production meetings. I generally know that most people attending the meetings will not be dressed up. I, however, am the wardrobe/fashion department and therefore have to "bring it." (Also I want to) But this isn't a suit and tie type atmosphere so what to do? It's all about the pieces. Snappy and creative jeggings, casual tank top, and business blazer. But, really, what makes me feel all business-like is the bag. Sometimes it's also in the accessories.

Music Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Ready for the week? No? It's ok. Neither am I. The video for this week's song is a bit strange but I absolutely love singing this song.

For my second visit into the land of Oz (I worked on the film) I thought green was in order. Not the green of a certain evil witch. But a happy green Glinda might wear, if she wore green. The happy green of a happy Emerald city. A night with the best friend to hang out and then see the film was exactly what the doctor ordered. I enjoyed the movie and even more so seeing it with a friend who laughs just as loudly as I do at funny parts...even if no one else in the theatre thinks it's funny. This outfit? A new favorite that has been worn again already.
