Happy Monday

Did last week fly by or was it just me? I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. My weekend was pretty eventful. Went out friday with my friends stayed out way to late and then had to wake up early Saturday to take maternity pictures of my best friend. They came out gorgeous. I posted a couple for you guys to see. Sunday one of my old college buddies came into town, so we all went to lunch on the beach and then I had to go style a photo shoot a couple blocks away so we parted ways and I went off to do some work. The shoot came out awesome. Matthew Karsten the photographer is really talented. You can see some of his work at :

We did the photo shoot in this really cool back ally on south beach. She was dressed in a 60's vintage flower dress. The shoes were navy blue suede buckle boots. I finished off the look with gold accessories. One of my favorite pieces was a gold vintage buckle belt that was re made into a bracelet. I snapped a couple shots with my phone. Of course my camera was dead, so the quality of the pics is not the best but you get the gist. I will post the final pics when he sends them to me. The dress that was in the photo shoot will be available for sale a

My weekend was finished off by walking out to the beach and laying on the sand and watching the sunset go down. I have lived in Miami my whole life and don't take advantage of the beach , so it was nice to go out there and take it all in.

I found an amazing site its called It is basically a radio station that you put in your favorite song and it suggests and plays songs that are similar to the song you like. I love it. I sit on the floor in my studio and listen to all the songs for hours while making my headbands and clothes. It's a great site.

Busy as a bee

Today was hectic, tomorrow is hectic, Basically everything is just really busy and hectic. Many new things coming up: I have a trunk show on Wednesday at Scarlette Boutique from 5- 9 Pm. Come by and see all of the goodies the owner Stacey has to offer. Her stuff is INSANE, so many amazing designers that no one else in Miami carries and very reasonably priced. I will be there as well with my " Poodlies" feather headbands.

I got hired to style a photo shoot on Sunday with my Fabulous Fashion Finds vintage gear. Hopefully it will be a gorgeous day. The space is suppose to be this really cool warehouse space. I am dressing the model in a funky 60's dress. I will post the pics when he has edited everything. Its going to
be great.

My best friend Dee, is 8 months pregnant and Saturday I am whipping out my old friend ( the camera) and busting out with some of my old photography skills. She asked me if I would take some maternity nudes and of her and of course I was honored. It kinda gives me the photography itch again.. Hmmmm. Ok, no my life is already hectic I don't need a to open a 3rd company/ job. Focus ASHLEY! God, I am a true breed of my sign. A real Pisces, all over the place. Here is some of my old photography.. Enjoy

Happy New year

Hello all!! Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful new year. One of my best friends had a new years party at her house, so we spent the evening there throwing back glasses of champagne and eating way to much food. All in all it was a nice end to 2008.

I have been playing some serious catch up the past couple weeks. My feather headband line " Poodlies" is kicking butt. So between making those and sewing I have my hands full. I am having my first photo shoot for the new year this Friday. I have lots of vintage reconstructed goodies that i have been collecting for you all :) I should have everything on the site no later than Tuesday evening.

That is one of my 10000 new years resolutions. To post at least 2 new items a night. ;) lol ... ohhh I totally forgot to update you on the fashion show. It went GREAT!!! My models were so fun and the dresses looked FABULOUS ( duh) .. I sold lots of dresses, but have a few left over. You can find them on my site under the " new years dress section" I have had a few people ask me about the music that was in the show. I used a variety of different artist. here is the line up:

Opening= Santo gold- Shove it
Shiny toy guns= Le disco
Yelle= je vueux te voir
Goldflapp= sex ?

Here are some of my new years shots as well as pictures from my fashion show. Also, check out this great article that was written on me :) Happy new year!!!
