SO MUCH FUN! We got a call a couple weeks ago asking to put together looks for a Red River fashion segment on Good Morning Texas for Friday, Oct 10th. I've only been on a TV set a handful of times and, let me tell you, nothing gets you going more than LIVE TV! (no pressure).
I grabbed a couple friends and GDC girls and LOVED putting my styling hat back on. Now that we have the GDC Denim Bar I can truly style head to ... well, ankle. It was a little chilly to rock our Havaianas or Hari Mari's.
Look at how cute these girls were!
The stylist doing the segment for GMT was Jeannette Chivvis and she's posted the video and some more pics on her blog. I couldn't help but snag a few of my own pics as well.
From L to R: (everything can be found at GDC).

I am stoked to let you in on our newest & greatest addition to GDC - our Denim Bar. We've spent about a year researching, scouring and meeting with people we know & love in the denim world and have picked the initial four brands to launch our Denim Bar. We could not be more proud and excited to let you, our own GDC fans, in on it.
James Jeans is based out of Los Angeles, where production takes place. It is the only denim line to be solely designed and constructed by hand. Seun, being the first female to successfully launch a contemporary denim line in the US, has accomplished the yin and yang of perfect fit and ultra-appealing look.
The James Jeans muse is every woman looking for an amazing pair of jeans that exceeds her denim expectations. Seun and the design team find inspiration in a multitude of art, iconic fashion, and the tangible experience of working with new fabrics.
James Jeans customers include innumerable celebrities. A current selection: Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Demi Moore, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Nikki Hilton, Rachel Bilson
You may recognize Chip Foster—he’s the creative director at large at Chip and Pepper denim jeans. “This is my new baby, my new line invitation only for the best selected stores that I love. There was no need to create another line… it was not needed but wanted.”
GDC is excited to have some of the FIRST Chip Foster California collection in our Denim Bar.
These girls are beautiful. We couldn't resist sharing.
I'm not the mushiest romantic in the world. Yes, perhaps my favorite movie is "Breakfast at Tiffanys" and I may drink my water out of a wine glass at times, but I prefer to think of that as more Vogue than girly. Judge if you may, but someone reading this is pulling their wine glass out of a cabinet right now and taking it to the faucet.
That being said, I love accessories and any reason to buy and wear more accessories to add to my ridiculous collection. With Valentines Day fast approaching, I've taken to a particular trend with gusto and made sure the store is also stocked accordingly. Love. Yes, the love trend is huge right now, seen on celebrities (like Bar Rafaeli picture below), it's popular in necklaces, rings, tattoos and bracelets.
Like I said, I don't really need an excuse to collect more accessories, but February is as good a month as any to buy for yourself if you're looking for a reason, and especially to buy for someone else. Below are some of my current favorites - perfect for a gift, or to keep for yourself.
1) The Nepal beaded bracelet. If you don't already have one, get one. In fact, get a few.
2) Bangles and bracelets. This picture is chock full of trends, the cross wrap in bold colors, the Hope bead, the Love bangle. Pick a few and layer them on.
3) This purse necklace is absolutely adorable. Need I say more?
4)Yes, that is a mustache necklace. And a robot necklace. And an elephant necklace. I die.
5) Finally, if you have to give a little love, why not do it fashionably? The heart and locket looks expensive, but the cz's keep it affordable. And the dual heart necklace is too cute the way it holds together when it hangs around the neck.
I am obsessed with the fantastic style of our mannequins out front. They are quite possibly the coolest. Ever.
