Customization has been a big trend this season, with names, quotes and even Instagram handles being stamped across jackets, bags and the like. I’m a sucker for anything personalized, growing up in the South where pretty much everything is monogrammed.
A classic accessory that’s making a total comeback, pearls are being featured in a big way for the upcoming fall season. However, they’re no longer the ones you once wore while channeling Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Teamed with rhinestones and studs on sandals, jeans, jackets and more, pearls have become the embellishment of choice for pretty much everything.
Festival season is officially here, and even though I may not be heading to the desert like the rest of SoCal, I can still take some outfit inspiration from those who are. As an Angelino for many years, I definitely had my fair share of Coachella—it’s an experience I’ll never forget.
Last fall, I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot in Venice Beach for two of my favorite fashion labels: Carmar Denim and Emma & Sam. This was my first real collaboration and I was extremely excited to represent brands that I truly love and actually wear on the reg. We spent the day on the eclectic Venice Beach boardwalk trying to capture that iconic California vibe the brands are known for. Despite a few alleyway outfit changes and awkward wardrobe malfunctions that come with street-style shoots, I have to say, I think we succeeded.
