When DVF Calls...

I never really considered myself "a designer"...just a person who loves pretty, sparkly, fabulous things. But I suppose, as a lover of fashion, and a person who actually does create concepts that are definitely out of the box, maybe I am...SO as a designer, there is No honor quite the same as having one of the most amazing Houses of Fashion contact you for projects...The Diane Von Furstenberg house of fashion, that is...
Posh.Life Bling has worked with DVF on several projects in the past...but when you get the call that Diane Von Furstenberg herself wants you to design her personal iPad cover...BLISS*
Just for a split second in one day she thought of me...Am I the luckiest designer ever, or what...?!
xoxo Posh ;)

Coming Full Circle...

When I started this business back in 2002, I had no idea that I'd be making insanely over the top designs and working with the awesome clients that I've had the honor of working with at this point in my life. What I knew was that the first time I looked at my little boy, Cristian, there was no way I would be able to go and work outside of my home ever again. To be honest, I was very jealous of the fact that he may actually fall in love with one of his caregivers, and the thought was really just too much to bare! :) I tinkered with a few ideas, and being such a girly-girl, I would always find myself embellishing when I got a cell phone, naturally that was next! Fast-forward to the present and the latest project...the Tama Town by Tamagachi Toys! This was really such a fun, whimsical project! Embellishing 450 toys for their debut in Toys R Us locations across the country. From the moment the 9 boxes arrived, my boys Cristian and Carmelo were stuck by my side, watching as the team and I put together these adorable characters! This was full circle for me...working on a toy project for a major corporation, Bandai of America, knowing that my boys are the reason this all came to be...having them get to watch one of their favorite characters come to life with our company...there are no words to express how great it feels. What I know for sure, is that the simplest ideas can make the most amazing impact! When I was a little girl, my Mommie would always tell me to do what you love. Work hard and never let anyone tell you that your ideas cannot work. Thankfully I listened! Follow your heart, work hard, do what you love, and watch your dreams come true!

Posh.Life @ the Emmy Awards Celebrity Party

La La Land Indeed...Posh.Life was on site again this year for the Emmy's Celebrity Pre-Party bash! Many of the nominees and presenters came out and showed us major love! Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives mentioned that Eva Longoria often gives her gifts that she purchases from Posh.Life Bling! <3!
We had the excitement and honor of being amongst some of the hottest, most sought after trends and fashion accessories. And I even had the opportunity to reconnect with some familiar faces and clients...
What Posh.Life has done over the years is introduce a totally new way of conversating. Conversating in ultimate style! Not only that...we constantly bring you Limited Edition styles, so that there is NO one anywhere in the world who will ever have the same design as you...even if they choose the same design, each one is handmade with it's own variation and look. So there are never two created the same. Our style and design ideas are unlike anything you will ever see! And although we are Often Immitated...we will Never, Ever be duplicated! Go GLAM...Or Go Home! ;)

Posh.Life blings out a cell phone cover for Teresa G., The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo

I received a call from Bravo's New Jersey Housewife Teresa Guidice this week, who was referred to Posh.Life by Luxury Lifestyle expert, Mina Jacqueline-Au. Teresa happened to be at Mina's 30th bday bash, and caught a glimpse of the design we did for Mina just a few weeks ago. And in her words she..."Just had to have one..." Of course, I immediately knew which design was perfect for Teresa. Glamorous, Over the top fabulous, and exceptionally girly...The Socialite...a match made in Swarovski Crystal Heaven...

Swarovski Crystal iPad Bling...

Whenever I think...what will I ice out next...a new gadget is released that I have to get my sparkly little hands on! FYI, I am a GADJET JUNKIE! Obvvv, right? Since I've been into cell phone bling for over 8 years now, it's only natural that I'd have an obsession for gadgets and techie toys. Thank You, Apple, for creating the ipad. It's bad enough that I have two crystal laptops, two crystal cell phones, and a host of other shamelessly blinged out things...
I'd decided there was just no way I was going to buy this iPad, since I do own a laptop AND an iPhone. Seemed rather pointless...but one day I was making my way out of the Hello Kitty store, headed back to my vehicle, when I passed the Apple store...and there it was... The iPad. A huge, blown up version in the window, beckoning to me, taunting..."Tori, you know you want me..." 30 minutes later I was leaving the mall, basking in the excitement of what I was going to do to my new iPad! :)
About two hours later...VOILA!

I must say, I LOVE it! It's definitely far from useless, and it's so much better than trying to view websites on my iPhone. And I don't have to lug my laptop, cords, etc when I'm headed out to meetings or work away from my office. But secretly...well, not so secretly...this is the best part of all!!! The BLING, BLING baby!!

This never gets old...

So last week I was closing up for the day...I'd just put on my Sade album, Soldier of Love, which is very relevant to me at this point in my life, since I am in the middle of a separation, after 11 years of marriage...yes, I married VERY early, which I don't recommend. LOL...
The Posh.Life line rang, as I was settling into my relaxation mode...and I thought, "I'd better get that..." And then there was a strangely familiar voice on the other end...although I wasn't immediately sure why. Turns out it was one of my childhood/adolescent idols!! Ms. Tionne Watkins, better known as T-Boz, of TLC. If you grew up in the late 80's, early 90's like I did (telling my age, I know), then you know what that must've felt like. I am rarely starstruck. I've had the pleasure...and displeasure in some cases (LOL)...of meeting many celebrities. However, there are those occassions that you meet your personal style icons, or they were the group of your generation, and you get that little feeling in the pit of your stomach. I thought, ok Tori, don't act like a crazed fan. You've done this before, you can do this...LOL! To my delight, Ms. Tionne was kind, humble, and absolutely fabulous to talk to! She was so very sweet...and the best part is that she Loved some of my personal collections. One thing you all may not know...I normally create collections off the top of my head. I'll be sitting at my desk, and just start making something up. So when I hear one of you tell me that you just love my really feels amazing, because I simply make what I like! So for Ms. Tionne to order not one, but several of my designs...I actually go back to a moment as a yound girl, watching the making of the "Waterfalls" video...or remembering singing "Ain't Too Proud To Beg"...and I feel like a Rockstar! Even if only for a moment...It's my moment. I hope that every one of you experiences this in your lives. Because it is those moments that let me know that all I experience in life, good or bad, is relevant. All the time and effort you put into what you do, and what you love, and going after your own personal goals will pay off in the end. And for me, one of thosse moments was in a phonecall from one of my idols...that's hot!! TTFN!

New favorite!

Here's a new cover designed today that I absolutely ADORE! Ordered by Vanessa, from the UK...Her instructions were to write the word GLAM, and do whatever to the background, just make it fabulous. And fabulous, it is! I LOVED the end result. I wish the photos could've really captured how Stunning this cover is, but I just had to share! Sometimes, the best ideas are the ones that are truly the simplest...TTFN...

The New Posh Girl!

The Posh Girl has evolved since 2002...I first had her designed by the artist Shano...who created a beautiful, upside down Posh Girl, relaxing on her pillow, chatting on her blinged out cell phone...I would always have people asking me, "is she upside down?"...LOL. So even though I absolutely loved the artwork that was designed, I knew that the logo would need to be redesigned. In 2005, Posh was transformed into the logo most known, with the pink diamonds added, which is now synonomous with the Posh.Life brand. Back then, the Swarovski Crystal Havianas were just being created, and I wanted my Posh.Girl to represent the times she lived in. She rocked hot Crystallized havaianas, a fab white tee, and daisy dukes, because she was casual chic...This year, I decided that our beloved Posh.Girl needed a serious makeover! With growth and refinement throughout the years, I have evolved as a designer. I created the trend of 3d objects on cell phones, because flat designs just didn't do it for me! I knew that there was nothing off limits when designing a phone...therefore my Posh.Girl had to evolve and become better as well...And isn't she now more fabulous than ever! I hope you love her as much as I do! Thank You for staying with us for all these years...and we will continue to bring the bling! Posh.Life 2010! Got bling??
