NEON Shoot with Anna De Rijk + fun NEON Makeup tutorial

green neon wig on model anna de rijkI love this shoot! I actually had the wig pictured above (see pic below) and used to put it on my mannequin “Bean” when selling vintage clothing. Also….my neighbor in South Beach was this really fabulous gay guy that would come over with his friends after clubbing and play dress up in all of my bright colored wigs. Now that was a fun use of the wigs!

*You can still pick this wig up on Ebay for like $20 or $30 bucks. Just search “green wig” and you’ll see quite a few.

Anyway, the super bright neon colors are always great in my book, and model Anna De Rijk pulls it off flawlessly! I think you have to be pretty adventurous though if your going to wear neon. You don’t want to end up looking like a giant piece of fruit! Best to start off with a scarf or a pair of neon stilettos if you’re not sure. 🙂

Japan Fashion Week Spring Summer 2010 + My Zen Project

japan fashion week spring summer 2010I’ve been revamping my studio this week into a calming Zen paradise. A tranquil desktop water fountain, bamboo plants and a few colored light bulbs have really transformed it into a relaxing space. I came across my “Fruits” cards and decided they would fit perfectly, so I attached them to 2 metal rods with magnets so I could change the pictures periodically.

I have been fascinated with Japanese fashion ever since the book “Fruits” came out! I love the street wear but have come to appreciate the fashion on the runways as well. In keeping with my theme I decided to post some pics from Japan Fashion Week Spring Summer 2010. 🙂

What do you guys think about Japanese street style? Is it over the top? Tacky? Fabulous? Fierce?

Love All Around,
Cara Mia ♥

Mint Lovers + Future Hippie Award time!

future hippie loves mint
Ever since I was a wee tyke I have loved mint! When I spent the summers with my grandmother she would fix me a big bowl of Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and I was in heaven! I would scoop out all the large chips, push them off to the side of the bowl, eat the ice cream, and then eat the clump of chips last. Isn’t that weird?

Today I still love Mint ice cream, and I have recently been on a mission to find anything in a mint color. Here are some fun pics and cool mint products that are now on my “to buy” list.

So now that I’ve told you something weird about me, what’s one fun fact about you that people might find a bit strange? 🙂
