Today I'm thrilled to be featured on Trust Your Style
, the nationally syndicated blog of Laguna Beach-based fashion designer Mary Jo Matsumoto
. Mary Jo's pieces have been worn by Angelina Jolie, Robin Wright Penn, Joan Rivers and Mary Hart and have appeared on Oprah. Pop on over and take a look.
One of the rewarding things about blogging is the people you "meet." I found Mary Jo's blog about four months ago. When I head down to her place I'm instantly transported to SoCal, moving through the vibrant art world, shiny beaches and shinier celebrity. Mary Jo's take on life, fashion and art is warm, informed, funny and sensible
(not always a word associated with LA.)
Hopefully one day we'll meet in Malibu, have a cocktail of the hour and transform from URL
friends to In Real Life (IRL)
One more exciting thing; the winner of the gold Havaiana flip flops
- drawn randomly - is Amy of eat.live. laugh. and sometimes shop!
Congrats Amy! Email me - firstname.lastname@example.org - with your size and address and I'll send them off today.
So, what are you up to over the weekend?
Wow- congratulations!! That's wonderful news. I'm off to check it out! :) Great for you!! Have a wonderful weekend. We're hoping ours is restful and relaxing. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Jody! You are too sweet! I feel the same when I read your blog--transported to all the goodness that is northern california. Well looking forward to meeting up one way or another this summer!ReplyDelete
xo Mary Jo
You look gorgeous! Snacks are a bargain for stylists that do such a good job. :)ReplyDelete
I have to share this post! This is wonderful congratulations!ReplyDelete
aww, yay for being featured! :DReplyDelete
i actually have no plans for the weekend, let alone summer. haha. now that i am done with school, i have a whole summer waiting for me... hopefully, it'll be filled with fun and spontaneous adventures. :)
Just reading your blog has injected some much needed glamour into my weekend...!ReplyDelete
How cool for you and how appropriate! Both very stylish blogs.ReplyDelete
woo to the hoo! new blog crush....via my darling mary jo...this is katie from goodniteirene. floored over those pants you're donning in mjm's 'eye on style'...now i need to clear my evening to play about the posts of 'about last weekend'....trės jolie!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on being featured! And the wise words from you.ReplyDelete
Sadly, I'm not sure what my style is going to be. I was born wearing a shirt and tie; that doesn't work so well in retirement. One more thing for me to discover.
Congrats on the feature. Love the flared trousers and the coral coloured top you are wearing in the picture. One thing made me cough though: you are 49?????? Seriously???!! I can't quite believe this. You hardly look 39. What's your secret to looking so svelte and glam? Spill! xxReplyDelete
I'm going to spend the weekend trying to stop my little uns demolish the house before I finish building it.ReplyDelete
Loved your feature! Those trousers are beautiful! LOVE! I'm a busy lady this weekend, as you saw on my post. But it will all be worth it. I am waiting for Mary Jo to make a trip to NYC so I can meet her too! Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
My weekend atire on Saturday will be whatever I wake up in (probably what I wore the previous day) as I plan to hibernate and possibly clear a desk top for me to fantasize about being creative. Sunday I shall be wearing 27 layers back up at the ice rink for another competition. My baby girl's on at 4.30 but has only 3 in her group which means a medal of sorts for sure = great ....but... this also means we HAVE to stay to the bitter end (about 8.00) ! I cannot fit enough socks in my boots to keep my feet alive for that long. So not so glam as you my dear but hey!!!ReplyDelete
My favorite thing about blogging is the friends that I make, as well. I have met some of the most amazing people online through my blog. I love how blogging forms a tight knit community of people with similar interests. :)ReplyDelete
Gah! I take back everything nice I just said to you on my blog. Are you seriously 49? You look about 29, ergo I do not like you and we cannot be friends. I do like your son however, and his sense of humour (neck ironing)... *assumes the foetal position and sobs uncontrollably whilst gazing into a hand-mirror* Maybe if I moved to Californ-i-a I could look like that too (some hope).ReplyDelete
Jody- Popped over to Mary Jo's blog and you look great! (But the, you would look great in a paperbag, too!)ReplyDelete
Actually, I have just discovered you are a cat person so all is forgiven!ReplyDelete
Jody, I loved your post- and picture! You look absolutely gorgeous!ReplyDelete
My favorite part is the part about "after 49 years"- finally sticking to tailored and fitted. It makes me feel better knowing that not everyone (including myself) has their *look/style down by the time they hit 30. I feel like I'm just beginning to figure it out!
Congrats on the feature :) love blog worldReplyDelete
Congratulations on the feature!ReplyDelete
