how the hell did i get here?

-my love of all things vintage started when i lived in los angeles from the mid 1980's to 2012

-working with creative and eclectic stylists inspired me to start collecting

-i saw beauty in found objects some of which were discarded in my neighbourhood alleys of beverly hills (I liked to call it my dumpster diving expeditions)

-my film background in makeup & hair & love of unusual clothing & objects brought me to this place of collecting vintage objects that inspire and amuse

-i think if we dress and or accessorize with whimsy, we create conversation

-perhaps that conversation connects us all and inspires us to share a piece of ourselves

below you will see images that required use of my hair & makeup collection

this started my love for vintage accessories
