Kate Spade Saturday | Inspired by Hepburn

I'm back in NYC from my wonderful Vancouver trip and a one day layover in Los Angeles. The past few days have been quite the adventurous whirlwind, but it feels good to be settled back in my humble abode in Brooklyn. And here's a second look that is part of my collaboration with Kate Spade Saturday. An outfit entirely inspired by one of my favorite starlets, Audrey Hepburn, and her unforgettable dance scene in 1957's Funny Face. Beautiful yet boyish. The grace of a  ballerina and a charm that was undeniably impeccable. Her petiteness balanced out her confident way of speaking. Her beauty balanced out her maybe non dainty way with words. Especially in Funny Face, she felt very French to me. Simplistic yet bold. Not to be taken too seriously, yet totally in control. She's not in a dress, but in pants, which in the 50's made quite the statement for a woman of that time. She never had to show too much skin to make men notice her either. Her physical beauty was just as standout (which at the time, was not very mainstream) as the sparkle in her eyes and the pitch of her voice. And I would never imagine Hepburn to wear a purse over her shoulder or a clutch under her arm. She'd wear it across her chest just like I wear this Kate Spade Saturday red leather style. Hepburn was obviously a girl on the go, and a girl on the go needs more hands than just one.

Citizens of Humanity | Flares Capsule


Citizens of Humanity's latest denim look book for their new range of flares is giving me the itch to jump into a new pair myself. How about them cropped flares eh? I think I want to give them a try! You know I'm all about showing the ankle, rain or shine. It's off beat and exactly on beat at the same time. 


Until these new styles roll in, check out these rad pairs of flares by Citizens of Humanity:


Feeling Wizard

___

Junim tunic
Chaser Brand jacket
AG Jeans skinnies
Sabrina SL crystal necklace and wrist wrap
2 Bandits choker
___

All different tones of purple have wonderfully become a staple color in my closet. I think it might be second in line, right after black. This Junim tunic allows me to indulge in a wash of the entire scope of purple. If I was a sunset, I would want to look exactly like this tunic. Ditto if I was a wizard's potion. Don't make fun of me for saying that.

That Epic View From Here

A look I shot the first day my sister moved into her new apartment in Hell's Kitchen. Such a gorgeous view she's got right? It's such a treat to be so close to the water in this concrete jungle we live in. As you must guess, I visit her place a lot. Being a freelancer, I basically get to work from anywhere. My apartment, a coffee shop, a friend's studio, or my sister's place. It really is comforting and I'm lucky to be able to say I can do this. The freedom really is worth all the hard work. I get to work when I want and I get to choose who I work with. It's everything I've wanted after all the years I've been in this industry. In between meetings, shooting, brain storming sessions, press previews and work lunch dates, we always try to stop and take a breather. Because running ourselves into the ground is no fun at all. 

Currently unwinding in Vancouver, B.C. right now with my friend Kiara of Tobruck Ave. Can't wait to show you our adventures in this wonderful city :)
