THE CURATOR / THE PENNY ROSE BLOG

Cameron Marks Founder,
Vanessa Ambrose, writes a monthly column
on a local fashion blog called The Penny Rose...

In this month's 'The Curator', Vanessa chooses five of her favorite things....

1. Dior Ready to Wear - Fall 2014 Collection:
A phenomenal collection by designer Raf Simons for Dior.
One that not only paid homage to the house but was mixed with the perfect
amount of the designer's own aesthetic. Jackets were accentuated with lacing
taken directly from sportswear, classic pumps rose from colorful sporty
soles and dresses recalled the '50s Dior classics,
juxtaposed by brightly colored hues
and silhouettes from streetwear. 

2. Westward Leaning Eyewear:
Sunglasses have undoubtably become a year round
accessory and I was recently introduced to the very cool Westward Leaning.
Made in California, each pair comes with a feel good message with every
silhouette is inspired by a different social movement.
Ten dollars from every sale is given back to the cause.
Now available at Cameron Marks.

3. Goe Oil:
The never ending hunt for an all natural miracle balm is over.
Goe Oil by Jao Brand hits the spot perfectly. A combo of 28 plant, fruit and
flower oils and butters, Goe Oil softens chapped or rough skin, removes eye
make-up, and even tames and shines fly-away hair. A cure-all that works on
many skin types. Plus I love the cool surfer vibe packaging.
In stock at Cameron Marks.

4. The Ojai Rancho Inn:
Next Cali road trip: to the small town of Ojai just north of L.A.
with a must-stay at the Ojai Rancho Inn, a hippie chic hang out for artists
and design lovers. A 1950s retro motel that has been transformed
into a new destination with a bohemian/mid-century flavor.
Let's go.

5. Angus & Julia Stone:
I've pretty much developed a full blown music crush on
Australian sibling folk-rock duo Angus and Julia Stone.
(Being fellow Aussies doesn't hurt either.)
Their amazing, new, self-titled album "Josh & Juila Stone" was released Aug. 1.
Favorite song so far: "Grizzly Bear" is on continuous repeat.
