Hippie Chic

Monday, March 26, 2012


Whew! What a crazy whirlwind of a week!
After commuting over 150 miles for 5 days to this little side gig in the Valley, I can now say that that was one helluva project and I’m sooooo glad it’s over! The daily grind was pure torture save for the fact that it was all done in good faith. I’d like to think I’m really on the cusp of my “next big break” y’all! Hahahahha kidding peeps. I don’t mean to be so elusive about what I’ve been up to lately, I’m just not too sure how much information I’m allowed to divulge about impending projects on the board, especially when I’m under contract. 


But what I can tell ya is that it might have something to do with a new makeover show and that it might just end up getting pitched to studio execs as a result! Just really crossing my fingers that a) this project gets picked up=Success! and b) they’ll hire me exclusively to design my little heart out on TV!


{What I wore to my 3rd day on set: Haute Hippie Marabou feather vest, thrifted blouse similar HERE and HERETory Burch denim leggings, Vintage knit and leather boots}


Oh, TV. I sure do have this love/hate relationship with you.
Why, it wasn’t too long ago (2 years to be exact) that this HGTV project stumbled upon my lap and I was whisked away to New York to participate in a little show called “Design Star”. Or what I’d also like to refer to as “a TOTAL mindf*ck!” …hahahahah…melodramatic much, Julie? Seriously though, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to participate in a reality TV competition, I can honestly tell you, THAT ISH CRAY! I don’t think I ever quite got back to “normal” and that was just a mere 3 weeks out of my life. Looking back, I truly believe that that was one of the best moves I ever made for my career. Shaken, but not stirred, I’ve now redirected my senses to reflect a lifestyle choice, not merely one made for professional motives. I’m focused, I’m driven, and I’ve never felt more fortunate to have found my calling at this phase in my life. And we’re just barely at the beginning y’all!

Thank you to all my readers for continuing on this design journey with me! I don’t know where we’ll end up, but what I can tell ya is that we’ll be rocking it all the way to the big-time y’all! From feathered floors to feathered frocks, some things will NEVER change ;D

*p.s. Haute Khuuture’s 2-year anniversary is coming up this April! Can you believe it?!! Got some surprises in store, you won’t wanna miss it!*

Hope it's the start to YOUR best week ever!

  50. Woah, good luck!!! That's so exciting, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. Looks like you've had success in the past so I don't see why it shouldn't fall into your lap again :)

    Love that fur vest by the way, I'd definitely double-take that if you passed by me on the sidewalk. Now I'm kinda lusting after it haha

  51. Oh girl, I wish you the BEST of luck on your new journey. You deserve it. I have been through the Design Star ringer TWICE! Never made the cast though, but went through the casting ordeal, got flown to NYC, the whole thing and it was STRESSFUL and HEARTBREAKING so I can't even imagine how it was for you. Sending you positive energy! XO
