This was one of my favorite shoots I’ve been on in a while! Working with everyone at Katy Offley productions and the PRIMARK team was so much fun it didn’t feel like work (especially when we were in Palm Springs). Paula Hughes was my boss for these two weeks and it was such a lovely experience working under her. The videos turned out soo cute! I wish PRIMARK was in the states because I would have shoped some the clothes from the shoot!
Check out the kids and baby video below too. The kids did an amazing job also! Baby Dexter was too adorable (blue polo and white shorts).
Follow our Cali road trippin across the USA. This is the start of The Endless Summer.
To be continued…
So be sure to check PRIMARK for the next videos
Back in November I got an amazing opportunity to work with Samuel Francois! He is such a talented stylist and it was a pleasure to assist him for this spread for TVTOR magazine. We shot at this beautiful private estate in Malibu. I’m kinda bummed my favorite look didn’t make the cut but all the shots turned out beautiful. Peep some of the final shots and some behind the scene photos!

Tvtor magazine launched this February by photographer Matthias Vriens-McGrath. Here is a little back story on how Vriens-McGrath magazine came to life:
The self-financed venture comes more than 10 years after the creative director and photographer catapulted Dutch to become a touchstone title of the Nineties. Vriens-McGrath, now based in Hollywood, promises the same subversive tone and visual potency with Tvtor, which is to cover fashion, beauty and contemporary art.
Indeed, the magazine’s title, the word “tutor” using the Latin alphabet, implies that it “has ambitions to show more than what is currently around,” according to Vriens-McGrath.
I’ve been shopping designer resale since I discovered this little jem shortly after graduating high school. I have always had a love for designer clothes all my life, always hitting up every sale at Saks and Neimans. Me and my mom would have many discussions about how I need to find a way to buy the things I love at cheaper prices! Let’s face it ladies, Chanel and Louis Vuitton NEVER goes on sale! So how would it be possible to get my coveted Chanel flap bag or Balenciaga city collection at a fraction of the price? Well you need to start shopping RESALE. Yeah I said it, Resale. I’ve gotten the best items at Great Labels over the past 9 years and I don’t feel bad saying that 90% of my closet came from Great Labels. I have one of a kind Alexander McQueen pieces to my favorite Chanel blazer all thanks to the socialites and housewives of LA consigning their closet overflows at Great Labels. Please never stop shopping! Hahaha
Also see what I told RackedLA about resale shopping at Great Labels:
Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we’ve asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We’re about to get a little help from our friends. Faith Kesington has years of experience in the fashion world. She’s the former fashion director for Fabulous on a Dime, has worked alongside stylists like Angela Fink, Nina Lenders, Taylor Jacobson and Laurie Trott, and has assisting ELLE Magazine‘s Joe Zee for various cover shoots. A shopper and a collector, Faith told Racked where she goes for designer duds on the cheap . . . click here to jump to the full article
It’s the Holiday Season and more people are shopping and the stores are packed! I prefer to shop in store than online because I like that in person feeling of shopping and being able to touch the garments. I only shop online if it’s an item I already own or very familiar with the brand or sizing, so I won’t be disappointing when it arrives. Shopping for gifts on the other hand I have a more open minded view of ordering something online. I am horrible about getting gifts early and being ready for the holidays!If your anything like me you’ll appreciate this last minute guide to help sort through all the curated gifts at every department store that they are trying to push to sale the holiday season!

It was love at first sight when I saw this Ann Demeulemeester jacket! It’s the ultimate black jacket that I own and my favorite Ann Demeulemeester piece. I always love the way her jackets have cool layering elements and transform when fully buttoned up from wearing it open. It is by far one of the best investment pieces in my closet and I’ll be wearing it many seasons to come along with my favorite leather pants!
A few weeks ago I got invited to a JOY RICH event showcasing their Disney collaboration. I wasn’t sure on what to wear so I decided to mix it up and wear something unexpected than what I normally wear. I would normally pair this Zara top with a pair of super skinny jeans and ballet flats or kitten heels. When I wear something more on the masculine side like these Stella McCartney joggers I would pair it with a super sexy top to downplay the tomboy feel of them. So this was definitely an unexpected pairing for me! I’m so happy with my choice because I felt so comfortable in this outfit!
I don’t really have a dress code when It comes to what I have to wear at work. So I can always have fun and experiment with my outfits. However, sometimes I need to dress the part when going to meetings or just needing to look professional. This is my second installment of how to wear the leather circle skirt. For a work look I paired it with a blazer because I feel like whenever I wear blazers I look serious haha. To tone it down I wore a fun printed blouse to bring my almost all black ensemble to life.
