Through out this experience I am sure that a lot of revelations will be made about myself, not only by myself, but also the people who read this blog as well. Like all of my topics I will be very forth coming, that is why I find it best to come out in the open and tell you 3 vital things that may make or break our relationship. I love puns; I love Tori Spelling and I LOVE TORI SPELLING PUNS.  
Yep, you heard right. Some of you are probably thinking "What the frock, Tori Spelling?" And the other halves are probably thinking, "Did she really just say, what the frock?" 
The pun fascination started long before Darren Star invented Carrie Bradshaw, and has just become a way of life for me. Saying or hearing a clever pun is just as good as the way a new outfit feels when you put it on and step out in it for the first time. Some examples.... My birthday is affectionately named (by me) JESSMAS since it is 9 days before Christmas, some girls have bachelorette parties I had a JESSLORETTE. And just when you were thinking you're not the biggest fan of puns (and really how could anyone not be) if you're reading this blog, the title, yep, pun!
Now on to the more pressing matter, Tori. It all started when I stumbled upon her reality show a couple of years ago, "Home Sweet Hollywood"(pun) and like a magnetic force the remote could not move past the channel. As I watched her and her life with Liam, Stella, and Dean I realized that we had so much in common. She was and is doing everything I strive to achieve, she writes books (sTORI Telling, Uncharted terriTORI, and Mommywood, pun pun pun), designs clothes (Little Maven), plans events, is a mother, a wife, and now a boutique owner!!!!
Last week, in the San Fernando Valley of Cali-forn-i-a, Tori opened her first boutique called InvenTORI. After years of collecting antique and vintage house wares she decided to open a store to house and sell her finds, along with some of their favorite items that she uses and loves enough to put in her store for others to indulge in as well. If you're in Cali I would love if you stopped by and told me how incredibly innovative and inspiring InvenTORI is.... I’m also a sucker for alliteration. 

This installment has been brought to you by the letter "P" and is dedicated to Ms. Spelling my future boss. If you type it, it will come.

It's a girl!

At 8pm, Wednesday February 16th, 2011 Haute Faux Sure was born. She hopes to be a safe haven for self-expression in the fashion world and the real world, a place where things are neither too bold nor too tame. Fashion should never be about finances and if you have enough to get enough or look the part. It should be about creating a look and more importantly igniting ideas and creativity within one another. The fashion industry should be a place for admiration not envy, respect and not judgment, helpful opinions and not harsh criticism. In this blog there will be an etiquette when discussing all garments, for example cheap becomes inexpensive, inspired substitutes knocked off, and investment and/or statement piece is a nicer way to say that you spent the same amount as your rent check or mortgage payment, without really spending your rent check or your mortgage payment, we hope. Along with fashion I will also blog about my personal experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly...and yes sometimes it's not dressed to a "T" and doesn't have make up on. So here is to the beginning of something haute, faux sure.

This first installment is dedicated to Kelly Framel and Jenna Lyons because one day we'll be great friends and play checkers together in Washington Square Park.
