Will I be in town,
when hell swallows Beverly Hills,
Will you be around,
when I come to my senses and I confess that I love you still. – Swimm “Beverly Hells”
Just a girl, her hoop earrings, and a swipe of fresh mocha lipstick. It’s that 110 degree flush.

Vancouver may be one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world. You get the mountains, the trees, the lakes, the ocean, the city, and the parks. It’s every wanderer’s dream. I was so impressed with it’s beauty. Everything is right at your fingertips. Whatever mood you’re in, you can get out and go. It’s the ideal place to be outside. To be active. To hike. To bike. But more importantly, to road trip. I was in town shooting the Gentle Fawn S/S ’17 campaign, but like every work trip, we leave a few days to ourselves to explore. We were on the road to Whistler and my friend said “promise you won’t fall asleep!” How could you when you’re driving with the Pacific coastline on one side and waterfalls on another?! It was pretty unreal. We eventually hit a beautiful field of wildflowers on the side of the road. Immediately we pushed the breaks to take a peek. Climbing up the side of the hill brought a bigger surprise. A giant lake circled by a mountain. The early morning fog slowly rolling in through the hills. You kind of have to stop and pinch yourself. How something so beautiful and peaceful exists! We had just passed Squamish…our bouquet of freshly picked wildflowers sitting on the dashboard. We had miles more to go.

I met the lovely and soft-spoken Georgia Larsen from London, on the set of my Free People October 2010 cover shoot back in the diz-ay. Can you believe how fast time flies? It was the first time any brand used real girls doing their own awesome s**t to model and style a total catalog. So the day of my shoot, I met a few awesome ladies like Georgia, a lingerie designer with long flowing blonde locks and killer bohemian style. Since then, she’s launched the beautifully chic brand, Dora Larsen…consisting of lace-y and feminine (without all the frills) lingerie sets complete with a choker. The choker a finishing touch to any dress you happen to throw on for a wild night out in the city. I totally have a soft spot for epic lingerie and pale pinks and blues. Always wear it for yourself. Love your body, no matter what shape or form. And own it. My boyish body has never felt more feminine.
