A MODERN WAY OF DRESSING | TOTOKAELO

Let’s talk about taking a timeless modern statement piece, like this pair of Viden trousers from Totokaelo. I haven’t come across one that has won me over as much as this pair. Usually trousers can be ill fitting, not the right crop, the rise a bit off, or just a bit too classic that they borderline boring, or even worse . . . too office work wear. This one is the opposite . . .  super slouchy fit, high waisted yet still boyish, and longer than the typical crop, so I feel like I can work them with a girly heel to dress them up. Totokaelo, a NYC based store, is all about art meets fashion . . . embracing the untypical objects, and bring out an editorial edge to the everyday. They sell everything from Margiela, to Comme des Garcons, to Vetements, to Marni, all brands that I have applauded for their twist on timeless pieces. And there is always a new brand for me to explore when I check out the site. It’s like opening a portal to a whole new wave of fashion that you don’t typically see on the regular. But that is what makes the shop so special, everything feels unique, and one-of-a-kind. If you want something that helps you stand out from the pack, but at the same time add pieces you know you will rewear and reinterpret over and over again with time, you can find at Totokaelo.

THE ULTIMATE 3 PIECE SWIMSUIT

My second Miami Swim Week is officially accomplished. I flew from London to NYC to Miami this week, and I have 2 nights to get the most of swim week! Last time I went was about 2 years ago. I walked in a runway show…flooding back memories to my days at 15 and 16 years old, when all I did was runway work in both NY and LA! But as an editor, I love getting to plop down front row and just enjoy the show. So many vibrant colors. Amazing music. So many healthy, and athletic bodies. It was more like a place to celebrate what makes women so beautiful, in all our shapes and sizes. And it’s swim week…it’s mean to be complete fun! South Beach. Sun. The Raleigh. The Gale. We got some scattered showers but still, the scorching hot, hot, Miami heat was coming in strong. Swim week is the epitome of both work and pleasure.

ELLE CHINA AUGUST 2017 ISSUE X MARISFROLG

I still have to pinch myself everytime I spot myself in a magazine. Here I am shot for ELLE China’s August 2017 issue in collaboration with Marisfrolg. It’s amazing getting to feature the very contemporary and modern-chic style of designer label, Marisfrolg for ELLE China, all while twisting in the best of my bustling city, New York City. It was all about oversize everything and really eclectic layers like dresses over lace pants…belted and boxy cropped jackets… and extra wide-leg trousers that hit the floor. Talk about cool. It’s this fall that I can really play with interesting structures, shapes, and layers. Elegant. Marisfrolg is the master at elegance. I took my super chic looks and sashayed around the Lower East Side…hopping on top of cars and singing on rooftops. I hope you love this editorial as much as I do.

A TRUE AMERICAN HOLIDAY | MAUI

By now, you have probably noticed my travel go-to look is a messy low bun, wide leg pants, and bold earrings. It’s always elegant, and it just works perfectly in this balmy weather. This summer was jam packed with trips to extraordinarily beautiful places, but Maui certainly stood out to me. Maybe it was because Mom and Dad got to join us on the island after our work trip. Dylana and I can barely remember a past family vacation. When you travel as much as we do, our normal vacation consists of going back to our Los Angeles home for Christmas to avoid the NYC snow. It was as easy as that. Fly to LA, sit on the front porch, and just soak in the winter sun, avoiding East Coast winters at all cost. This family trip was a lot different. It was super exciting to hop on the plane and once again, travel with our parents as adults. They seem a lot more like my best friends than anything else.
