I am beyond excited to be moving on into the new year feeling totally complete. This year was so full of rewarding obstacles to battle, and beautiful adventures and glistening star-studded moments. 2014 was so wonderfully powerful and life-changing…allowing me to fully live the dream, and see the world. One snap of a photo at a time. Surrounding myself with good people, I could easily see what was good. What was bad. What I needed. What I didn’t need. The people that really mattered in my life. That focusing on what makes you happy is really the key to success. My intuition has been by my side throughout my entire life, and honestly, I feel there’s someone watching over me somehow. Making sure I’m okay, guiding me in the right direction. An angel. Making sure that anything toxic wouldn’t get in the way of achieving my dreams. My happiness. Now, I’m just grateful for every little thing. But most importantly, the people in my life. For my beautiful sister Dylana, who helps make every single one of my days brighter…another reason to live the dream. Soaking in the day with laughter and beauty. My parents for listening to everything I have to say, keeping my life in check to reach my highest potential. My friends for making me cry with laughter even in the wildest of times. For you readers…inspiring me to be inspired and share my creativity, and whatever is going on in my mind. To make visions a reality. To touch you with an image, a mood, a piece of clothing, or the lyrics in my songs. You keep me inspired to travel to the most exotic of places, reach for the stars, and live in the abundantly beautiful present. To look those you love straight in the eye, and tell them you love them. To take a walk and smell the roses. To squint up at the sun, letting it soak into your skin. To be kind and sincere. A loyal friend. To live. To breathe. To let your emotions take you over your mind and body…dancing the night away. To sing so loud and powerfully to get your point across. To show up anyone who has ever doubted you. Because you’re better than that.
I feel stronger and wiser than ever. 2015 for me means living in the moment, and thinking and living out of the box. Because I was never one to be stuck in a cage, or be like anyone else. You know when you feel invincible?! I’m ready to take on the world. Come on and join me on this next chapter.

Happy New Year…celebrate tonight with a little bubbly!
I’m constantly on the prowl for online shops that keep my wardrobe refreshed with new, unique items. Brands and designer labels I wouldn’t be able to get my hands on just in NYC. Pieces from adorable boutiques around the country. Much like this A Detacher twin set. I scored this baby on Garmentory.com, an online marketplace where you can shop independent boutiques across US and Canada. On Garmentory, you can bid for the item you want to purchase and always, you will score an amazing deal. Because most of the styles only have 1 or 2 pieces available, you got to act fast! They’ve got everything you need for the New Year. For me, I’m all about the mixing and matching of plaid prints in structured silhouettes. Chic, simple, and a little bit retro. I took this little ensemble out for a day exploring my old cowboy hometown in Los Angeles. These bold hues really stuck out amongst the cactus and dusty mountain roads. Pure perfection.
Be sure to check out the NYC boutique, In Support Of, where the items are also sold!
Now tell me, what are you bidding on at Garmentory.com?!

It sure feels good here in the sunshine state. The warmth, the sun, the ocean. The desert. The little cowboy towns surrounded by mountains, canyons, and fields of wild horses. It sure beats NYC’s dreadful chill, although I totally miss my apartment, my friends, and that go-go-go, never bored energy. Not to mention, my closet back home. But really, for me, the inspiration never stops. With this free spirited energy, all I feel like sporting is an easy, one-piece chiffon jumpsuit. Part of my SHOPSTYLE Nasty Gal holiday collaboration, I narrowed down all of my top favorites from the killer “TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL” brand. Who knew lavender could be my new favorite shade? With it’s low neckline and adorable puffed shoulders, it’s sleek yet still sexy.
And be sure to see my NYE party favorites! I think I’ll be spending my night at a cook-out by Topanga Canyon. Ringing in the new year with a bon fire, great company, guitars, and music. You definitely won’t find me curled in the corner at a nightclub. I can’t wait to share with you my resolutions. I’ve got many.

For me, the best part in getting dressed every morning is getting to #StartWithTheShades. Here are some images from my Sunglass Hut photoshoot and video shoot! I’m so excited to share it with you guys. It’s so true that a great pair of sunglasses can completely transform your look. I like to make my pair of shades the statement in my look. We channeled one of the coolest trends out there now: Neo Geo. Pops of color, and amazing geometric shapes. We’re talking circles, rectangles, and squares. We used loads of angular, strucutred pieces on set. Not to mention, the SUNGLASSES. This Dolce & Gabbana pair from Sunglass Hut had amazing neo-geo sharp edges. I love the extra dark lenses. Super chic.
Now take a peek. How amazing are the gifs?! We had a great team. With the amazing Raul x Mihai producing…Logan on wardobe, and Katy on hair, Chichi on makeup. Loved this team!
