Designer Valerj Pobega.. Los Angeles, CA

Gen Art's Fresh Faces of LA Fashion show was put on last night at the Petersen Automotive Museum.  Out of the five designers that show cased their collection, Valerj Pobega stood out to me the most.  Her work is like wearable art and I admired how each piece had a vulnerable yet dramatic story to tell.  I got to chat it up with the designer after the show and she's incredibly sweet.

You can check out her collections at :

My love will turn you on. The fascinating world of John & Yoko..

I've posted this video on my Facebook page but I love it oh so much that I had to post it again on The Pacific Muse. Off of John Lennons second solo album Imagine , "Oh Yoko" is written about his wife Yoko Ono and features Nicky Hopkins on piano. The video portrays a true love story between John and Yoko. It makes me believe that there's someone out there who can love you as much as you love them. The upbeat lyrics are a little cheesy, but good cheesy because this song always makes me smile. I personally love the part where John is styling Yoko for her photo shoot and when they're wearing large fur coats around the estate. The ending is kind of weird and awkwardly lengthened but you gotta love them for trying to be goofy. And mark my words when I say, one day I too will make a love story music video with my love..whoever he may be.

Empire State of Mind::New York City::

New city, new friend. Marie-Joelle Parent is a French Quebec reporter who moved to New York less than a year ago. She's the first NYC correspondent for Sun Media, Canada's largest newspaper publishers. She's been very welcoming and invited me out last night to a friends red themed burlesque birthday party at Kiss and Fly in the Meat Packing District. We danced the night away then cabbed it over to 1 Oak. Look out for her, she's going to be big.
