ABOUT ME

The Real Housewives of Mendocino County…

Is a show that will likely never happen. Mendocino County, 100 miles north of San Francisco, is where I grew up and it’s distinctly different from Beverly Hills and Orange County. Just take a quick Wikipedia comparison describing each county in the first few sentences…

‘Mendocino County is noted for its distinctive Pacific Ocean coastline, Redwood forests, wine production, microbrews, and liberal views about the use of cannabis and support for its legalization. It is estimated that roughly two-thirds of the economy is based on the cultivation of marijuana.’ Hmm, what about Orange County? ‘The county is famous for its tourism, as the home of such attractions as Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, as well as several beaches along its coastline. It is known for its affluence and political conservatism.”

While Orange County’s gated communities may outnumber our picket fences, Mendocino County is not only one of the most beautiful, relaxing places you could ever visit in California, our ‘housewives’ are just as stylish. I’d like to introduce you the “Real Housewives of Mendocino County” who I styled in looks that I’d love to see the Real Housewives of OC wearing….

Here’s a tounge-in-(FillerFree)-cheek glance at ‘The Real Housewives of Mendocino County Part 1’… You’ll Meet Today


Jody ~ “The ball may be in your court, but I’m still the Coach”
For Real ~ My sister, Jody, is the head women’s basketball coach and instructor at Mendocino JC and she’s an avid baker & ice-cream maker. More on that in the future…

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Make-Over ~ If I had a chance to re-style Lisa VanderPump, who is obsessed with wearing pink, I would have her wear this look. Hints of hot pink and a conservative curve hugging dress that she can still pair with her sky-high heels. Our lawns may not be as plush or green year-round, but I think our neighbor dog, Polly, gives Jiggy a run for his money. 🙂

DETAILS ~ Dress (old)~ Trina Turk, heels c/o Report Footwear spring line,bangles ~ f21, What she’s sippin’ on ~ Testa Vineyards Award winning ‘Simply White’ (Blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Chenin Blanc). Visit the family owned Testa Vineyards and their new tasting room located in Calpella Ca. More info on Testa wines HERE
Lisa ~ “I’m the Boss, but don’t ask me to do your dirty work”
For Real ~ When Lisa’s not tending to tomato plants in heels, she owns The Parlour which is the newest hip salon with a team of professional stylists in Ukiah, Ca. Lisa is a color specialist and hair color educator and the salon offers extensions which is something you see on every Real Housewives show! Follow @ParlourThe on twitter or ‘Like’ The Parlour on Facebook  for updates & hair tips like Lisa’s “DIY Formula for California Girl Beach Hair”

Real Housewives of OC Make-Over ~ When it comes to events from weddings, dinner parties to ‘game nights’ I feel like the RHOC are constantly dressed as if they’ll be boarding a private jet to Vegas at any moment. I wish they wore flattering, blush toned flowy dresses every now and then. 

DETAILS ~ Dress & heels (recent) H&M, necklace ~ F21, handbag (old) ~ Louis Vuitton, The Bubbly she’s Sippin’ ~ My favorite sparkling wine Roederer Estate from Anderson Valley HERE in Mendocino County

Tess ~ “I don’t care if you’re a Super Star, my son is my Galaxy”
For Real ~ Tess is a doting mom to her adorable son, Jacob, and she is also a manager and event coodinator at a little gem of a resort called The Lodge at Blue Lakes which has become a hot spot for summer and fall weddings. Check out the lodge and their newly renovated Lakeside & Jacuzzi rooms HERE

The Real Housewives of OC Makeover (Mom Edition) ~ Sometimes I wish the daughters on the RH of OC would tell their moms to put down the BEBE and try a little Banana Republic. We kept Tess classy, but red hot in a a simple checkered summer dress and cardigan tied around her shoulders dropping Jacob off at school.

DETAILS ~ dress (old) ~ Alexia Admor, heels- c/o Report Signature, red sweater ~ Express, necklace ~ H&M, braided hair ~ Impressively REAL 🙂

Behind the Scenes
Jacob and I keeping it casual in The City Supply Co tees
TO BE CONTINUED…
Coming Thursday ~ Meet the final 3 ‘castmembers’ including a mystery housewife and 2 sisters (because it just wouldn’t be the same without dueling sisters.) Plus, my TOP 10 favorite spots in Mendocino County & a special local GIVEAWAY!
While I chose to makeover the cast of Beverly Hills & Orange County, which of the “Real Housewives” on Bravo! would you like to re-style for a day?

    lol. This is AWESOME! I like this group so much better than any of the other Real Housewives. If Bravo did a Real Housewives of Seattle, we’d philosophying at Starbucks or dodging rain.

    This is Awesome Dale! I love it…I may have to spin off of this idea. The ladies look great!

  22. The Little Texan says:

    I love this! I’m from Orange County but in no way relate to the sometimes “trashy” style of the housewives. Overdone hair and make up is their worst enemy. I loved how you gave these women classy yet chic looks. Keep up all your great styling work!

  25. This is hilarious!!! such great talented ladies, I love the dress you sister is wearing and I agree Lisa Vanderpump needs to retire the hot pink princess dresses and wear pops of pink. Those Real Housewives of the OC and NJ sure love their sparkly accessories and bebe/ cache dresses… I would definitely love to restyle Tamra and Ramona… I also wish Tamra fixed her eyebrows, she would looks so much better!
