LIQUID METAL

posted by Elshane on Sep 29 2014, under Fashion

It's easy to get swallowed into a financial burden during wedding season-- between gifts, travel arrangements and making sure your lewk is hotter, chicer and newer than that **#^%! brunette sitting across the aisle from you in those brand new Tabitha Simmons heels. Why her?

Don't get mad, just sit up straight and let your side boob do the talking...

SILHOUETTE SHE

posted by Elshane on Sep 22 2014, under Fashion

Into skin. Into showing skin.

Into showing skin during all seasons in fresh silhouettes.

Like this off the shoulder Lolita moment... she's daring and refined, and quite "buttoned up" one would say with the help of her classic tube skirt. 

She's the perfect answer to a cocktail party, extravagant dinner party, or second date. She is, however, missing one crucial accessory:

Her martini.

WILTING WONDERLAND

posted by Mike on Sep 18 2014, under Fashion

Is now a good time to discuss the LA heat? Not the basketball team, although I love a good sporty challenge (insert Elshane-approved situational dressing comment here), but the 106 degree inferno that is currently my home. Not only is this impeding on my Intro to Fall Fur 401 (advanced members only), but it's really messing with my skin game. 

I am a serious devotee of strictly no makeup during the day (let 'er breathe and soak in all the goodness that is my Typical Normal Morning Face Routine), but this face sweat situation isn't the "dewy look" that I usually go for. 

Which reminds me... I'm due for a beauty post soon. Something to gear this melting face into crisp fall night tightness, ya hear? Right on top of that, Rose!

PS- More amazing scenic shots of San Ysidro Ranch (where this completely unincorporated post was shot) after the jump!

SHE WEARS THE PANTS

posted by Elshane on Sep 15 2014, under Fashion

This crisp Fall air is revving my work gut into overdrive. It's something about the change in seasons that excites the fire in my belly to work even harder and more efficiently. I see goals and dreams and pleasing people. Pleasing myself.

Naturally, New York Fashion Week proved to be the perfect exit from summer's light fare onto this freeway of fervor.

I chose pants for the occasion. I'm the woman in the driver's seat, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

STEVIE IN THE SAND

posted by Elshane on Sep 3 2014, under Fashion

As summer flirts its final winking eye, reminding us of the memories that were, we seemingly take the nod (albeit the 84 degree weather) and accept fall's great fashion challenge.

It never hurts that New York Fashion Week lands on the brink of the fall season-- allowing us blog-ette's the elegant safari right of passage into fur coating and camels and oxbloods (oh, my!) and all other animalistic tendencies that fall innately welcomes.

I sit here at a Starbucks adjacent to the Empire Hotel, the quintessential New York Fashion Week hotel hub, anxiously awaiting the week ahead. And lucky you... you're only a click away from following along with me! Keep up with me all week on my Instagram @elshanesworld!

ELCHELLA 2014!

posted by Elshane on Aug 27 2014, under Home Decor/Entertaining

Dear Diary,

I had the best 30th birthday a gal could ask for!!! Well fine, I guess I should pat myself on the back and say it was all my "fault". That #ELCHELLA theme, you know, "Elshane's Coachella", was a recipe for success the second my gals started chowing down on my Fritzi Hot Dog truck, serving up LA's finest gourmet 'dogs and accouterments topped on pretzel buns.

Also, it didn't hurt that I created possibly the most epic D-I-Y station of all time, my Harajuku Sunglasses Stand, where I ordered 500 cheeseburger, ice cream cone, and penguin mini erasers, along with pearls, rhinestones, and googily eyes to hot glue onto faux Ray-Ban sunnies.

But wait, maybe it was actually the 16-person "shotski" that made #Elchella, well, #Elchella. Or do you think it was the countless Tribe of Jewels metallic tattoos that I shared with all of my guests to put where they pleased? Ah, yes, that could be it! I remember that four hours into the perfectly chilled and forever free-flowin' Tequila Avion, all of the macho guys were begging us proper ladies to "tramp stamp" their lower backs with metallic suns and tribal symbols!

Although, thinking back, I think my favorite part was actually the 4-member Rock Band that I hired and chartered to travel all the way from Santa Barbara to rock out at 10,000,000 volts of volume to classics like Fleetwood Mac and Nirvana

Wait, now I really remember why it was the best day ever...
