2 HEADS ARE BETTER THAN 1

If you've lost sleep over anticipation of a future post involving that '51% designing first official line with Nikki' thing I once mentioned, this one's for you:
I suspect that more then 51% of my cognizant time is devoted to designing, sewing, critiquing, redesigning, sewing, critiquing, redesigning, etc., the first official collection of my first official line.
EXCUSE ME, did I say 'my'? I meant 'our'.
Enters (exquisitely): my business partner/roommate/besty, Nikki Garcia.
Those who read this blog (maybe just my mom?) know Nikki from past posts. I'm honored to announce that this strikingly talented lady and I will be collaborating in our BIG fashion journey (she's mine, so don't even think about it Marc!). When time permits, I'll continue to dabble in zombie-esque dresses and post-apocalyptic hoods, but *WE'RE* gonna knock your socks off. Bam!

Above is a super secret sneak peak.
Also; check out Nikki's designs on her blog http://nikkimgarcia.blogspot.com/

WHAT YOU GOT IN THE BOX ONLY GRACIE KNOWS

If you didn't listen to Ben Folds (or any other Ben, for that matter) in transit to Morro Rock, in search of; 1) gnarly waves, and/or 2) hot men in neoprene; you may not recognize the lyrics to Gracie. But I couldn't rightfully deliver this news without a reference to a song that so vigorously jerked-my-tears in 2006.
I'm extremely excited to report that my ultra responsible sister and her fantastic husband are having a baby! Meet Gracie Amelia...
(This photo is kinda weird and I'm not sure how I feel about it?)

I'M GETTING BACK INTO YOU

It wasn't a messy break-up, per se. Perhaps because we both knew it was only a break... And now I know, and I will shout from the highest rooftop in the mission, 'I want you in my life, my love'. Oh how you've grown into an increasingly intuitive and refined being! I've always known, oh special garment in my imagination, that we'd find each other again.
