Today’s look is all about this amazing jacket I picked up in downtown LA during the end of the month sample sale! I don’t even know the brand but the neon colors are so 90s but so now. I paired it with orange lips and natural texture hair with a braid. Enjoy!

Today’s inspiration is about all things Fall Fashion 2014: blue lipstick,  plaid, gold rings, & corn row braids – basically 90s grunge / goth revival! I especially love my tiger claws from Laruicci! http://www.laruicci.com My husband loved this look because it reminded him of my style back in 2000 when I met him and I was 100% “Glam”!

In commemoration of Rouge and Company’s final hair show/product launch in Dallas Texas, I taught I’d recreate a fun version of their back stage stacked perm! I used Enzo Milano curling irons since I didn’t have time to dry my hair on perm rods. This set is a lot of work but creates an amazing texture!

Decorative Chignon- As seen on the runway for designer Reem Acra, Lanvin, and Dolce and Gabbana! The use of flowers, metal chains, and jewelry were all seen delicately placed around low buns at these high profile fashion shows.  My rendition uses a necklace made out of spoons that my dad brought back from Sweden!

Female Trouble

I absolutely loved the Mui Mui collection this Spring/Summer season 2015 from Paris Fashion Week! From multiple patterned pencil skirts to polished trench coats, to ruffles crop tops to elfin hair and eyebrows to the mix match belts, the whole eclectic mix of feminine rebellion spoke to my inner mischievous teenage girl. I did the best I could to recreate my own version out of my closet but I still think I am going “need” a plaid version of the skirt soon!

Sincerely, Ashlee

The trend on the runway for Paris Fashion Week this recent past Spring/Summer season 2015 seemed to be half up/half down with decorative hair accessories. (As seen at designers Celine, Valentino, Balenciaga, & Miu Miu shows) My version uses a hand made flower hair piece I bought at the Chelsea Market in Manhattan. I completed the look with soft waves achieved by wrapping and twisting sections hair around a 1  1/4 inch curling iron.

Enjoy,

Ashlee

Although I only made it to fashion week in New York for Spring/Summer 2015, I’m still following it currently in Paris. I was really inspired by designer Balmain’s runway show for sspfw14! Today I recreated the slicked wet look complete with black and white stripped outfit. I plan on being in Paris this time next year!

Enjoy,

Ashlee

Good Morning,

On this, my first day home from New York, I decided to try out one of the styles from the Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion show that I worked.  This is a fun style that was quick to put in and reminds me not only of New York but also of my high school days when I used to style my hair in very unique ways.  Hope you enjoy my recreation of this funky look!

Playfully,

Ashlee

Catch and Release

Catch and Release

Have you ever had a dream that felt like a fantasy – glorious in your own mind – unrealistic perfection of your own desire. It feels like an ache in your chest – a need that you have to fulfill. Yet like that of a possessive relationship, it can be crushed by desperation. Sometimes the dreams you want most, you have to release for them to survive.

In this photo shoot we tried to capture this very concept of Desire, Despiration, and Release through our Colonial Sea Captain and Mermaid characters. Her allure makes it hard for him not to have her but to possess her means to kill who she truly is. In order for her to maintain her majestic self he must release her from his control.

They say art is an expression of the soul. My art is my hair and through this fashion story I wish to portray how I feel about my professional aspirations.  My faith also tells me that my longing can not be filled through worldly accomplishments. Maybe for me “in order to have your life you have to lose it” means to release my dreams and trust in His plan. The only real choice is to choose to be happy in this life always.

Thank you for letting me share my theatrical side!

Sincerely,

Ashlee
