As so elequently put by one of our most esteemed fashion designers today, Zac Posen…ME watching, and HE judging, yet another fist clinching episode of Project Runway, Zac cringed at one of the contestant designer’s creations and gasped, “Oh…no!  I’m soooo over the whole motorcycle jacket trend!”  Double YIKES!!!  So much for this outfit post huh?!?! Well, as much as I adore Mr. Zac Posen (scroll below to see my obsession with his fashion dating all the way back to year 2009) – I’m unfortunately, still equally very much in love with the “MOTO” trend – pause for Zac’s silent eye-rolling : ) Fall is one of my favorite seasons and this Acne Studios Moto Jacket (which I purchased last year) along with my brand new prescription Matsuda Eyewear’s round mirrored sunnies, once again makes me “MOTO READY” this season!  Hey!  I invested quite a bit of money on this jacket and plan to whip it out every chance I can, especially during the Fall months you know?!?!  LOL!  Oh!  Before I forget, please allow me to thank Cynthia Paredes, Licensed Assistant Boutique Manager, at Optical Shop of Aspen in Fashion Island for helping me with these amazing sunglasses which, I will of course, plan to wear like ALWAYS!  LOL!

For those of you who were kind enough to continue scrolling down this post:  the bombshell blonde model in the above photos – was none other than my friend, AnnaMaria Mostrom.  She was perhaps one of the kindest, most grateful – beautiful on the outside and inside girl – I had ever met since moving to Cali from NYC.  Tubby, Chloe and I were absolutely infatuated with AnnaMaria as she excluded pure grace and a soul much deeper than this fashion industry will ever know.  It’s been a very tough week as we tragically learned of her bike accident in NY, and a completely surreal, mournful time, as we came to grips with her recent death.  The one person who consistently encouraged me, by cheering me on continuously as I kept posting ridiculous selfies of myself for this blog –  would now be an angel in heaven…

Photo Credit:  To the friends & family who loved AnnaMaria so dearly.

AnnaMaria’s most recent “like” of my silly selfie – was on our private friends and family Facebook account –  for my “A Pop of YSL Blue!” blog post, just a few months ago.  If I had known that I would never again get to see this joyous girl’s pictures of her exciting life adventures, and never again feel the warmth of her encouraging hands to keep following my dreams…I would have made a hundred appointments to have coffee, tea, lunch, dinner, whatever time necessary to get to know this amazing lady even more.  From afar, I gained so much needed inspiration and strength from this radiant AnnaMaria…but I never got to tell her.  Perhaps this is why she has been in my mind nearly every day for the past week.  Perhaps this is also why my last post was so filled with emotion and why this post is equally emotional.  I’m not sure if what I write, say or do has any iota of importance, but I’d like to dedicate this post and the rest of my own adventures in fashion to AnnaMaria Mostrom – one of my first and sweetest stylish friends who was also WAY down to earth.  May we all walk in beauty like the flowers she so loved.  Thank you AnnaMaria.  Heaven has gained yet another fabulous fashionista forever!  We will miss you dearly!  Rest in peace…  AND likewise, thank all of you for your encouragement and support.  Till next time…
