Ready for Fall - #BeverlyCenterStyle

A couple weeks ago The Beverly Center contacted me and asked if I could come up with a complete head to toe fall fashion look in honor of their #BeverlyCenterStyle event on September 2nd. Of course, any challenge is a welcome one-- especially when it involves a budget and an entire mall to choose from.

With so many options I knew I had to have a plan so I chose a specific color scheme (blue, purples and white) to work from. Luckily, H&M had this incredible "heavy scarf" (a.k.a cape) that was the perfect statement piece for fall that I could build the whole outfit around. Footlocker had matching purple/blue ombre hued New Balances to match the cape with, paired with a white sweatshirt from Uniqlo to complete the norm core look I've been loving lately. I then found these amazing white linen pants at Forever 21 (because I still live in SoCal after all and need to breathe.) Then I found a navy zippered backpack from Love Culture (because backpacks always remind me of fall) and a black felt hat plus some silver necklaces from Forever 21 to top it all off. It took a total of four hours but I love the end result! Plenty of details to add and subtract as I feel, and totally great to bundle up with once the weather gets a little more cool (also, how much do we love the white on white look?)

For those of you in LA I'll be at the Beverly Center for the culmination style event on September 2nd! Hope to see you there.

On The Set of My Short Film

I think I've mentioned some things about a short film that I've I written and directed, which hopefully explains me being MIA on most forms of social media lately. There's something about the production process where I just get lost in it. It's the only thing I can completely focus on... which is pretty much why I want to make it my life.

I can't wait to share the final product but here are some stills and behind the scenes shots of the two days of shooting, which were long hard grueling hours of work but also completely magical. I just wore cargo pants and these Urban Renewal overalls which have been my favorite thing to put on this summer.

Chain Gang

I havent talked about it explicitly on the blog yet but I bet you've noticed hints and whispers of my obsession with piling on gold chains this summer. I've found some at flea markets and thrift stores and at the bottom of my jewelry box in my room and even in big chain stores like Forever 21. I thought I'd share a couple shots of how I'm layering them, because I just love how it looks! Shop below for a couple that I'm wearing here.

Artist in Residence

This is what I've been calling my "artist in residence" look; paint splattered jeans, breezy tunic, some handmade beads, and chunky platforms. Seemingly simple, but then again, it's all in the details.

I start filming my short film this Friday, and after filming I'll be editing like a mad person for the rest of the month. Coupled with a killer internship and wanting to suck the last moments of summer dry before school starts at the end of August, simple, easy to throw on outfits is everything I need right now.

Denim Duster and Mom Jeans at Comic-Con

Okay, I can not believe it's been two weeks since I last blogged. But then again, I can, because a whirlwind of activities (pre-production on my short film, interning for a screenwriter, taking two music theory classes and trying to maintain somewhat of a social life) have come up and there's been no time for anything. But I say that a lot.

These photos were taken when I had somewhat of an emotional breakdown (we can be honest about that, right?) and decided I needed to get the hell out of Los Angeles ASAP. So, I bought two tickets (one for me, one for my mom) to Star Trek: In Concert at Comic-Con and drove straight down to San Diego for the evening. It was a much needed break and I'm glad I did it because Michael Giacchino is one of my favorite composers and hearing some of his work live was breathtaking, although I know now that next time you gotta either go big or go home. Front row seats make the difference 100%.
