Random Photos of Ian’s house, and new friends in town

I know i should be blogging about last weeks episode. i’m sure of it, and i will. But i have 10 minutes and sourcing/linking the product/stores take longer.  Plus i didn’t get professional pics taken and that always bums me out.  So instead i’m posting these awesome photos that my friend Mark took of Ian’s house.  Remember Ian? that quirky little rodeo pant wearing friend from the special? its funny cause i’m over there all the time and its like, yep, this happened, and I still really love it, not gonna lie.  I’m begging for Mark to take more photos of the whole house, i realized that i never did and that is sad.  So if they look anything like these, i will be very very very happy. 

I know.  Mark just randomly sent them to me because he and his wife Amelia just moved to LA and are staying with Ian for a while, and he snapped these up one day.  He doesn’t really shoot interiors (more of a portraiture guy) and i’m all, ‘well you do now’.  Besides his name is Mark Champion.  I mean, who doesn’t want to work with a guy named Mark Champion.  His wife has a fashion blog, a la Cupcakes and Cashmere, that he shoots, its called Clotheshorse NYC and its good. Amelia (who i will always be jealous of for having the more exotic version of mi nombre) has awesome fashion sense and is going help me get out of my 70’s fashion rut, don’t worry not change the decade, just modernize it a bit….less costume-y.  

Yup.  this is Amelia, pics by Mark.  And this is Mark:

Neither of them are models per say, (she’s an actor, he’s a photographer) but they aren’t bad to look at.  Welcome to LA, my new friends. 

Check out Amelia’s blog here, and Mark Champion’s work here, because they are awesome. I will always from now on only call him Mark Champion, by the way.  Or just Champ.  

  1. I looooooved Ian's house. That episode began my obsession with SOAS. That was one of my favorites.

    I know Cupcakes and Cashmere! She has amazing, envy-inducing style and is so incredibly chic.

    What a fabulous group of LA peeps you are!

  2. This is funny because I was just linking the pics of me and you to your site and when I tested the link "LO AND BEHOLD" you had blogged about us! Great minds think alike;) See you tonight at the casa de rodeo pants.


  3. I saw Mark in my J.Crew catalog and now I find him here. You just made him more human with this post. Very cool. His photos are great. And now I will check out Amelia's blog and welcome her to LA! Great shares:)

  4. ahh … ian … i remember his just-long-enough hair on your special like it was yesterday … and that house of his – oh my! so to get to see his humble abode again through some beautiful pics (by a talented and professional photographer turned jcrew model) is a real treat!

    p.s. can't wait to have a new style site to stalk too – thanks for the amelia intro! :)


  5. Gee, thanks: just what I need: another blog to obsess over.
    Curse you Emily for introducing Amelia's blog into my world.

    loved the pictures…would like to know more about the chair..i have the exact same danish chair…:)

  7. Ohhh new friends are SO fun. And esp when they are pretty and talented and have AMAZING names.

    PS i'll be in LA thrifting soonish. It'd be wowzers to connect, but I'm going to bank on it that you are crazypants busy. PLUS you don't know me, and thrifiting is an oddly personal thing that comes with habits and rituals.. but JUST MAYBE if you're around, and want to thrift with a chick from pdx, I'm in!
