Sneak a Peek at the Photoshoot!

So, we had the photoshoot and it all went down in one day. Such a great time with tons of hilarious pictures. I love phootshooting days. I will be posting some of the silly ones after I get these awesome bad boy shots out. 

Thanks to our amazing model and everyone else who's helped out! See them on our website www.rumandcouture.com. New Spring 2013 start coming out next month so that means another great opportunity to photoshoot in the next few weeks. Can't wait!

Until next time, I'm designer dreaming <3 .="" p="">

Out on the town under $150!

A little Bit Of Christmas Designing Fun.

So here we are a few days before Christmas flashback and me and my friend AC are contemplating making a reversible baby cape for her niece. We picked really quirky prints and fun fur.

Here we are just cutting it out. Having a little fun. I had never done anything like it before. 

We found a neat little pattern although we ended up sewing it up a whole different way.

 And this was AC's first time to make this too. First time I worked on anything with anyone besides my Aunt and Co-designer.

And as a reward...we scarfed down all the new Habatchi grill, that just opened, had to offer!

 Delicious soups.

Our flowery noodles.

Some flowery veggies.

AC's soup. She loves everything soggy.

I just love the details. The delicious delicious details.

Our friend JS trying to enjoy his meal while I'm yelling to stop so I can shoot pictures.

Handmade gifts are always my favorite. I will have to find an after picture of the cape so you can see all of the hard work. Projects for the shoppe are fun, but there's always room for other projects!

Anyone do any projects for this season?

Until then I'm designer dreaming! <3 .="." nbsp="nbsp" p="p">

Quick Look at My Christmas

Holidays are one time I'm thankful I run my own business and can take all the time I need to be with my family. Here's a look at my Grandparents Christmas party and it's always elegant and funny. My other family Christmas is loud, sparkly, and full of bad language and laughter. 

My younger cousin helped his mother set this pretty table setting. They always do a great job.

This gem is getting put in my "to make a million hard copies of" of my beautiful niece and my wonderful gramps. 

Even at holiday dinner on a vacation for work I can't stop photographing things I love the color combination in. Here I am scooping out my Aunt's plate.

I do not drink coffee but I am going to learn to enjoy it this year.

Another picture for the "to make a million hard copies" pile. Over fifty years of hard earned love and respect in this marriage and I couldn't dreaming of wanting anything less for myself.

My favorite part of the Holiday. My Grandma's homemade, most delicious, cheese cake. No one, and I mean no  one can even come close ever with her exact recipe. 

All the holiday festivities has lead me to love the white color scheme. I think I might just be adding a few all white pieces to the line. I have never been one to have any white pieces but there is a first time for everything. Only thing I ever tried was this past holiday collection's white lace open back top.

How was your holiday? Did you get style inspired by the season?

I'd love to hear it. Till then...I'm designer dreaming <3 .="." p="p">

New Years//New Style

Happy New Years Resolution

So it's casual Monday! And to begin my New Years Resolution...One of the at least...is to post often my outfits at the office and other place...plus post links to finding similar things. 
My intern had this amazing bag on today! I just loved it. And now want one too. 

I love the great metal work all the way down the bag. I also found the hippie version of this bag and I'll be linking it. Casual Monday's are a favorite of mine and there I am leaning and fondling my mannequin. This year I am going to devote myself to my line but also to my love of writing and blogging.
