Ricky: I Just Couldn't Believe I Was There

Believe it, Ricky Lizalde, you're here!

What was it like meeting Tim and Heidi for the first time?
I met Tim on the street one day in the garment district and I was too busy thinking about what I wanted to ask him and totally don't remember what I was feeling. When I met Heidi for the first time, I thought, "wow, she's perfect." ricky_401_02_320x240.jpg

On The Road

Book tour updates, be sure to stop by if you can!

Hey kiddos!

The book tour for Fashion Inside Out is going GREAT! Big thanks to all those who have already come out to show their support to me, and to the book; I'm eternally grateful! I hope that you enjoy reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I'm still on the road for another week or so with MANY stops along the way. Because I'm typing this from the airport terminal (waiting for my flight to San Francisco to board) I can't post all the rest of the stops, so check out my Web site for all the times and locations.

I love you all and hope to see you sometime soon! Have a great weekend (pleeeeease don't put me next to the screaming baby ...)
