Style of the Day - Crazy Hair Day

It's been awhile since I've posted and I apologize.  Work's been crazy busy but I can't complain,  busy is better than dead especially for a stylist.  The weather in LA has been amazing this past week and I can finally break out all the dresses, shorts and skirts that have been dying to make their way out of my closet.

Style of the Day - Coachella Hat

So I just got the hat I ordered from Nasty Gal last week and thought I'd try it out and wear it to work.  The perfect touch to my Ella Moss styling outfit.

Rag & Bone Obsessions

 If my closet could only be full of one designer, it would definitely have to be Rag & Bone! Not only do they have flawless quality but the creativity and versatility of their pieces is on point.
Obsessing over this bleached denim jacket with super soft leather sleeves. 
I'm a sucker for a wide leg pant! Especially one made of silk.

A girl can never have too many blouses.  You can dress them up for a wine night with the girls or dress them down with shorts and boots for the office or shopping trip.  
The Jasmin long sleeve top is the perfect top for a trip to the farmers market or even Sunday brunch in Newport Beach.

The Hart Biker Jacket is on my ultimate wish list! Waiting for this piece to go on sale so that I can afford it and add it to my clothing family.
And last but definitely not least, Rag & Bone's denim collection.  I love their prints!

Style of the Day - Scalloped Shorts

It's a nice 75 degrees today is Cali and I wanted to be comfy, yet stylish at work.

Coachella - Day 2 Inspiration

The look I'm going for for the second day of Coachella is a hip Indie Rocker look.  I got most of my inspiration from Nasty Gal because I feel their site hits the nail on the head as far as the look I'm going for.  I'm absolutely obsessed with their site.  I even grab some inspiration from their site for my own daily personal style.  
The hat and cut out collar necklace I ordered from Nasty Gal just arrived today and look fab! So perfect for my Indie Coachella look.
All images taken from Nasty Gal and can be purchased there.  Bottom center photo taken from Omen Eye and can be purchased on their site.  I love this company! I met their team at Project and they are amazing.  Each piece is made to order so no 2 pairs are alike.

Coachella - Day 1 Inspiration

Well, Coachella's only 2 weeks away and I can already hear the music pounding in my head and feel the rocking beats.  Not only am I stoked to witness legends in the making, discover new artists and dance the weekend away, but I'm even more excited to plan my outfits for these 3 days of festival madness.

Cabin Fever - My work for the Ben Trovato Blog

I can't believe I haven't posted the editorial I styled for the Ben Trovato Blog yet but here it is! It's also to this day one of my favorite shoots. 

Joe says they were more focused on creating a visual story that is accentuated by differences in styling, and that they were not influenced too much by other visual references.”We wanted to convey femininity in a soft and a hard form. We love our industry but feel that while everyone is trying to innovate constantly and people do for the most part, it just doesn’t stick for one reason or another. We keep coming back to classic and safe things that we know work and they look damn good. This sort of represents a difficult cycle to break.
Stylists Elizabeth Watson and Crystal Ung from Liz + Crys says they always try to exude class in everything they do, but at the same time be able to make a bold statement. “We really loved this concept because it gave us a chance to do just that. Through mixing tailored pieces with statement pieces we were able to portray a classic look but at the same time give it a bit of edge. Villanueva & Stone’s Cabin Fever concept really inspired us to play with various emotions within the styling. We feel that it’s not just one person that makes the shoot a success but the entire team and this team was definitely one we were happy to be a part of.”
Joe and Katie agrees, and tells us of a great day shooting: “- This was our first time working with the styling team Liz and Crys.  They did a fantastic job with the styling, we loved their dynamic and taste. We have a great working relationship with Ashley the makeup artist for the shoot, sometimes we get our portfolios mixed up. We would work again with everyone in the team and encourage everyone to check out their work. Our work would definitely not be the same without the artists we collaborate with,” they say, before praising model Wylie: “- Wylie is a natural. She is a model who definitely knows what she is doing but makes it look effortless. She has a great face and piercing eyes, there is a quality to her that you don’t find in very many models. When she stands in front of the camera she knows exactly how to move her body and emote with her face, she gets it.

Style Fashion Week - Day One Ina Soltani

 A little Christian to start off the week.  Anxiously awaiting the next show, cocktail in hand.

 Leather bermuda shorts, yes please!! I need these for spring ASAP.  They can rock up any outfit.  I would wear them with a mint green blouse, buttoned all the way up and a gold collar necklace.

Desiree and I backstage after the show.  fShe is one of the key makeup artists for the entire week at Style Fashion Week.  Work it girl!

Ina's show was full of leather and I love me some leather.  The leather romper was to die for.  I don't think I've ever seen a leather romper and it was definitely fab! I like the fact that Ina incorporated a few different unique groups in her collection but I thought it also made the flow of the show a little awkward.  I like that she used color in her show but the fact that it was only for a few garments didn't make sense.  I could definitely see a few of these pieces in an editorial and would love to work with Ina in the future!
