Tell Me More









  Channeled my inner Sandra Dee for this Grease inspired editorial I shot with Dave Tada for Borealis Magazine styled by Alex Jillian.  I loved the styling so much (which were mostly vintage items) so I went on a hunt for similar pieces to recreate this look:



Dave Tada shoots with only a film camera which is pretty rare/ badass, and is truly a master of his craft-  follow him on Instagram and Tumblr to see more of his amazing work!

And while you're at it, follow me on instagram and tumblr too;)

Hex Hex Hex













I've always been a bit girly and have never been one for pants... but Long Clothing's amazing design skills have gotten me into the first pair I've had in years- the Long x Orphanage Clip Pants.  When I went to Japan last summer I saw so many hip, stylish kids in these type of drop crotch pants and remember being so disappointed when I couldn't pull them off because they looked completely ridiculous on me.  Somehow Long Clothing managed to make the "diaper pant" look awesome and flattering without giving that saggy droopy mom-butt look.  Thanks, Long Clothing- I'm officially a pants gal.
Ps. Yes indeed- I DO love big flat brim hats;)

Bled White









Style Moi killig me again with this gorgeous lace maxi dress!  This dress is unlined so you can wear just about anything underneath it to create tons of versatile looks:  Wear a white or nude slip to keep it classic and formal,  a bright bodysuit to give it a fun pop of color, or a black bralette and high waisted shorts as styled here to make it edgy and sexy for a daytime or evening look (which is my favorite way to wear it).  Keep your footwear color to match whatever you layer underneath and you're good to go!    Special thanks to Adam Rindy for not only the rad photographs, but also for lending me a hat from his collection from the best hat store I've ever seen (and worth a stop should you ever find yourself in Virginia City).  This dress is such a head turner, so I keep the accessories minimal with some silver and bronze layering necklaces.

Welcome to the (Minty) Jungle














New online store crush alert:  Minty Jungle!  I love supporting local LA shops especially when they are filled with tons of cute stuff!  Loving this fun pastel tie dye dress by United Couture, paired with some color blocked platforms, and a classic denim jacket, which I personalized with a DIY band patch.
