DJ Rashida {spinning style}

When beauty meets talent, style, and a warm soul, what do you get? You get a super fabulous DJ fashionista known as "DJ Rashida". Some of you may know her as the stylish DJ for Prince, or as the DJ for the popular MTV show "America's Best Dance Crew", or maybe you are a regular at California's Temple Bar in which she spins regularly. However, I have been a big fan of Rashida well before she hit the scene, as I met her through a mutual friend while in high school. Not only is she mega talented as a DJ, but she TRULY is beautiful both inside and out. Her style is impeccable, and quite eclectic..the perfect chica to highlight here on Style Gypsy don't you think?

Rashida has rubbed elbows with the most elite within the music and fashion community and I thought it would only be proper to highlight some of my favorite photos of her within all of her fabulousness! Be sure to check out her personal blog "A Diamond Life" in which she shares some sneak peeks of inspiration via her traveling moments, fashion, music, and her nights and days as a DJ! You can also find more photos via her myspace page.

Laura Dawson {gypsified chats}

Oh my! So a LONG time ago( wont tell you the year...LOL), when I thought that I wanted to focus on fashion on JuBella, I had the opportunity to interview the talented Fashion Designer Laura Dawson, and now that I have started this blog I can finally feature this interview where I feel the readers would appreciate it! So with that said, here is a little mini chat with the fabulous Laura Dawson...Enjoy! Oh, and be sure to check out her online boutique for some super cute pieces to add to your collections!

Laura Dawson {gypsified chats}

Laura: The style is very, very now. It's not about the future, nor the past.
It's about the only moment we ever live in - right now. It's playful,
dark, edgy, young, and has an impeccable downtown pedigree.

Style Gypsy: Fashion & Style magazines that you couldn't live without?

Laura: Useless, Bombin,The Super Super,xlr8r,Music for Robots,Animal,Paper,Pop,Self Service,V,and Numero!

Style Gypsy: What do you love most about what you do and what things would you like to achieve in the future both in your career and life?

I love that I can create the world I want to live in. I love the
fluidity of how influence travels. I'd like to achieve a completely organic business with the lightest of footprints. I'd like an urban castle made of glass that is completely green:).

Style Gypsy: Most unique thing about you?

Laura: There are so many things about me that stand out. It would be easier to name areas where there is common ground with others. The most unique things are my ability to segue from one area of
interest to another, very seamlessly. And there are the things about
me which are contradictory - a person in a chic and elite industry who
is inclusive, considerate and without an ego attitude!

Style Gypsy: Products, accessories, gadgets, & things you never leave home without?

Laura: My phone, wallet and keys. usually also a sketch book and something to read.

Style Gypsy: Biggest achievement within your fashion career?

Laura: Being listed in fashion houses in le book. Having my work published in
a coffee table book about new talent in fashion design from fusion
publishing. Having runway shows at new york fashion
week and watching people enjoy wearing my clothes.

The Ting Tings {sounds like fashion}

I heart this song by the Ting Tings so much! I remember when I first heard it and I kept playing it over and over and over, so much that even our 5 year old started to like it! If you have trouble viewing the video here, then just click here.

Jaime Mascaro: Ursula Collection {me love the shoe}

I'm back! As you can all figure out out, I have had baby girl! She was born on May 17th...exactly on her due date. Needless to say I have not exactly been in the fashionable mood (which explains my lack of blogging here) with the mama pouch that's left and the extra bloating. But I am ready to get back into shape and blogging here on Style Gypsy always gets me motivated to beautify my outer life! LOL.

Anyhow, moving along into fashion talk. Is it odd that I do not like/hate wearing heels yet I love the artistic/fashion value they hold? I find comfort in flats or short pumps, and even wedge heels, but there is something unnatural about wearing heels/stiletto style shoes. I am sure it would give me much needed height to my 4" 11" frame, but I just feel awkward in them. I dunno, but I can't help but to swoon all aver these pieces from the Ursula 2009 Collection of Mascaro (fyi:you may have to click on the Spanish version to see pics). I especially LOVE the gold pair with the peep toe that are at the top of the last photo...fabulous!
