LIVING IN COLOR

posted by Elshane on Oct 31 2014, under Fashion

I crave color like Paris Hilton craves a #selfie on set of a music video. Bring it on-- more, more, more!

It's always been easy for me to pair wild prints together-- actually not much thought goes into the process. I find two prints that I like, and it usually works. In this case, I'd categorize both of these prints as "digi-square" {digital square} because they both look like they could have been brick walls straight out of a Mario Bros-esque video game in their past lives. In deepest conclusion, this commonality in print character makes them mesh well together. 

If I could offer one tip on mixing prints, it'd be this... (continue reading)...

TURKISH DELIGHT

posted by Elshane on Oct 26 2014, under Home Decor/Entertaining

I'm six weddings deep into wedding season, and it's only been five weeks! Good thing I have a wild, wild west wedding to look forward to next spring... in Istanbul!

I remember the last time I was in Turkey-- you could find me haggling with the tapestry dealers in the Grand Bazaar or {raging} like a classic American dancer with moves like Elaine Benes (old Seinfeld reference) at clubs on the Bopshorus after midnight. I took a hefty side trip to Bodrum, the Saint-Tropez of Turkey and spent most of my time tanning topless on boats and eating Manti (Turkey's finest #eeeeasts-- essentially, spaghetti Bolognese, dumpling style).

Here are a bunch of photos that I never released on Elshane's World. I categorized this as Home Decor/Lifestyle because this culture is so rich with color and architectural inspiration, that you can't help but invite these images into your home. Dig in...

BEAT IT

posted by Elshane on Oct 22 2014, under Fashion

I wish I could dive into the sagas of my day today and tell you all about the celebrity fashion fitting I had this morning with my cutie male client Jonathan Bennett from Mean Girls, or sparkle your brain with verbal imagery about the diamonds I pulled this afternoon for a lookbook I'm shooting for a fashion brand later this week, or divulge on a gush story about all of the messy but amazing construction going on in #elspanishoasis right now, but I'm honestly just too tired. 

Luckily, I wasn't as tired this morning-- so backtrack through some of today's feast on my instagram @elshanesworld and catch yo' self up!

RAISE THE BAR

posted by Elshane on Oct 16 2014, under Fashion

At what point do you pencil in personal time, when business is all on your mind? Fast forward... at what point do you exchange your third glass of wine for a bottle of water and get back to work? 

I can't decide what's sexier-- staying in on a hyped out social night to catch up on work emails, or maxing out a few shots of tequila with your newly introduced and conveniently connected "bestie" while ripping seriously improved triceps that so happen to be peaking out from your new ALC jumpsuit.

I find that...

GRECIAN RISE

posted by Elshane on Oct 8 2014, under Fashion

What's more important... to look cool, or to look pretty? I choose cool every time. 

Pretty is for days when you just got a spray tan and fresh highlights and are wearing no makeup; your flawless glow can literally stop traffic. And then it washes away nearly overnight and you wake up the next morning pale and broken out.

Cool on the other hand, cool is so much more... 

Cool is attitude, personality, testing the waters, and showing the girls with the fresh "Manhattan" blow out (I'd say "you know who you are" but "you" likely don't read Elshane's World) that you had that tick inside you yearning for a mohawk braid. 

Cool will get you the free drink at the bar and it will get you the job at the PR firm. Cool will put you to bed with a smile on your face.
