I know blondes have more fun and If I was blonde I'd be the Jerry Hall kind. Her locks are her trademark and I would give up my favorite lipstick for that wave. Don't get me wrong being a love being a brunette but something about Jerry's hair makes be want to get a bucket of bleach and a crimper. I truly love her style and taste in men. Jerry is one my favorites model icons and her dedication to being sexy siren for decades is inspirational.
Ms. Hall has a autobiography coming out soon. That should be a scandalous read. Can't wait.
Summer has drifted away with my tan. We don't mess around with summer here at Rica. Tis the season for sexy summer love and tiny bathing suits. We are a fan of bike rides, wine breaks as we ride our bikes, people watching, catching free fun around the city. We even took a little trip to Puerto Rico to get away for some inspiration and relaxation. It was much needed. Here are some highlights.
I'm a sucker for sprinklers.
My nephew's first birthday! The cutest baby in this side of town.
True Blood Sundays. We take these nights very seriously. Candles and red wine. check.
My sister's salsa dance show in central park!
Packing my bathing suits. I may have taken too much just for a few days.

Where we got tipsy. Who loves Bacardi and coke?
Best dish from the trip. Look at those beans. Seriously.
I miss fashion illustrations in magazines. I remember being so excited to see the new covers of Interview Magazine and the Saks Fifth Avenue sketches in the sunday paper. It's a beautiful and dying art form in the industry.
My hero in fashion illustration is Antonio Lopez. He has recently inspired me to take out my watercolors again.
Lopez had a glamourous career and a story that inspires me today. He unfortunately died of complications related to AIDS in 1987. His illustrations are still a staple in the industry and I hope that the new generation coming keep him in the history books.
