My Dad is old school and always goes to books and the Thomas Guide to find things on maps while my mom just stood in line at 8am today for the IPad2 which has made her very happy.
They crack me up! Dad doesn't even know how to use email, while my Mom knows more about technology than I do.
I got my sales and marketing skills from him and my people skills from her. Love my little Mom and tall Dad!

Actress Yari De Leon arrived at Fashion Designer, Sue Wong's "My Fair Lady" fashion event dressed in a blush, feathered Sue Wong original. Yari's look was accented by a Mary Frances handbag and earrings by Alisa Michelle.
She appears as a sultry dancer who seduces Ryan Phillippe with unexpected consequences in Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer which opened this weekend.

Have you seen it? "A slam-bang twister of a legal thriller!" Peter Travers, Rolling StoneIt's a lot of fun to watch for males and females alike! My client, Yari De Leon, plays a sultry dancer who seduces Ryan Phillippe with unexpected consequences which Matthew McConaughey must unravel. Love these sexy hot guys!:) And guys will love Yari and Margarita!
Very nice lower lounge for private parties and upstairs dining area showcases Rolling Stone covers.Chef Chris Ennis has created a raw, organic, sustainable menu which is a very fresh, modern American style of tapas which everyone can share. This is the location of Gallery LA's LA Fashion Week after-party and I've already seen some of the male models floating around. Wonder if my favorite is here?:)
Dina Bar-El was sitting in front of me with Won G and I loved her designs. Beautiful, sophisticated jewel tone gowns many with crystal adornment which drew applause from the audience they were so beautiful.
There were many other designers who showcased their work which I'll showcase via video because I loved so many and it was hard to capture everything in still photos.
Kudos to Producer, Mikey Kaufman, for pulling off an event that embodies the best of LA Fashion Week. This reminds me of what it used to be like during the Mercedes Benz LA Fashion Week back in the day. I used to miss them, now I don't have to.:)
I wish I was working with, or dating someone I could have wear his clothes.:)
A few minutes later Ron Jeremy arrived and picked her up. Sorry, you'll just have to imagine it happening.:)
I love it when art is mixed in with fashion and music. Great vibe here.
Yari De Leon wore their counter-part, Report Signature at an Oscar red carpet event.AlejandraG's collection are amazing too and coming out at Diavolina on Robertson and Third in July. A woman wearing her thigh-high black leather boots says they're even comfortable too! Bonus!:)
I could have used these foldable flats yesterday. Perfect after wearing heels. Buy them here: www.tashlimited.comHard soled and a huge variety of styles and colors. Models love wearing them after a show.
Children normally walked 3 miles to find clean water wherever they could. A $10 donation buys a well which will supply water for 20 years.Donate if you can to www.generositywater.org
Yari is so moved to be part of Generosity Water. Please give if you can: www.generositywater.orgSince 2008, Generosity Water has funded 199 water projects in 17 countries serving clean and safe drinking water to over 80,000 people.
Everyone's donation benefits a well in Africa to provide clean water. Yari De Leon is here to support this very worthy cause.Very cool African Experience room, a silent auction and more.
Everything Yari is wearing are like pieces of art. The attention to detail, elaborate beading, feathers and pearls are even more spectacular in person.Yari is inside Sue Wong's living room and it's as lavishly decorated as she designs. One of my favorite designers and now Yari's too. I think Mary Frances is both our favorites now.:) The Lincoln Lawyer launched today at theaters nation-wide. Groupon has tickets on sale. Please go see Yari in action opposite Ryan Phillippe and see why everyone is talking about her as one to watch.
All three are wearing designs from Sue's newest collection. Perfect way to enjoy the launch of The Lincoln Lawyer which is Yari's film debut.
Yari is wearing Sue Wong and enjoyed seeing all the models circulating wearing this season's collection. Unique concept and a lovely setting.
Sue hosts the most amazing garden parties and we've had a very enjoyable time seeing all her gorgeous designs which everyone absolutely loves.
Actress Yari De Leon is wearing a beautiful blush Sue Wong original with an authentic clutch by award-winning handbag designer, Mary Frances, accented by Alisa Michelle earrings. Thank you Red Sole Diary Stylist, Jennifer Margolin!Yari appears opposite Ryan Phillippe in Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer which opened today in theatres nation-wide. See it!
Very well done with lots of creative expression.
Very well done fashion, accessory, dance shows and lots of interesting looks throughout the night.Packed house too. Fun!
Lots of different silhouettes, houndstooth, purple accents, black and white, ruffles, cocktail dresses. Very fun and flirty. Worth the wait...:)
I like the simple, clean lines, muted colors, attractive sweaters, unconstructed jackets and long vests.
Proceeds from the sale of this fair trade certified of 100% Ringspun cotton t-shirt benefited Japan.
The crowd is going wild. This is the best show of the night thus far.:)
She has been Rihanna's stand-in. Fun addition to the night.
