IN A VINTAGE YSL

Meet my new vintage YSL blazer…a piece I’ll keep forever. I still have so much excitement for consignment shopping. This is a piece I found on Vestiaire. It was shipped in from Paris, and completely worth hours on the site, digging. I grew up going to estate sales back home in Los Angeles so I know what it’s like to dig, dig, dig for the perfect surprise piece. I really miss it and try to do a weekend route through Beverly Hills and Santa Monica if I’m ever home in Los Angeles. The items I found were incredible, and literally came down to 5 bucks for a killer coat. It’s funny but I think I really did find my style back then when I was younger…shopping on a bargain. I have this thing where I love making something old feel brand new again. Right now, I’m into boyish everything. Oversize trousers. Boxy blazers. Dr. Marten boots. Crew neck sweaters. Anything you would see on an Olsen twin. Pile it on baby. This was shot on a much warmer day back in London. I’m really back home in NYC sprawled out on my couch. We’re having a real SNOW DAY. What does that mean? School’s out. Work’s closed. Meetings have been postponed to tomorrow. I can finally catch up on everything I need via email. There really is something lovely and relaxing about a snow day. This beautiful vintage YSL piece will have to make it’s second appearance on sunnier days.

SAVILE ROW, LONDON

When in doubt, wear black. Here I am on the streets of Mayfair in London: layered up in 3 of my main travel essentials: a silk blouse, a giant wool coat, and perfect polka-dot trousers. I went with my boyfriend to shop for suits out on Savile Row, the most posh and luxurious shopping road in all of London. Each store has it’s own tailor. Everything is bespoke, made of the absolute best silks and cashmeres and wools. It sure is an experience, shopping for the most perfect suit, and believe me, the men in London know how to rock a good suit. With time, I noticed low-key Shoreditch was a lot more our style though work always brings me to this part of town! Now this is where you want to stop by for a real afternoon tea. A place to dress up in your most fabulous coat and shoes. Go all out. I say go to Claridges, take a walk back in time, and indulge in England’s most buttery cakes. Now that’s one fun way to feel like royalty.

THE NEW COUNTRY

Is this not the most beautiful meadow you’ve ever seen? England, you’re so dreamy. Here we are at Soho Farm House… one of the most remote and secluded properties of all of Soho House out in Great Tew, Oxfordshire… about 2 hours from the city of London. Think classic barns-turned-restaurants. Romantic little cabins in the open field. A steamy indoor/outdoor pool to decompress in. Boat rides through the fog. And then one gorgeous cottage perched perfectly beside this very meadow. Now this is how a home away from home should look like…a private place to unplug and get away from it all…no social media allow #truth. As for getting dressed for a weekend in the country, simply layer and match your surroundings. Shirts under dresses. Shirts under vests. Socks and sandals. M Missoni does a killer job once again for our winter 2017 photoshoot. At this point in time, I was traveling every single week, and time was flying by like the speed of light. It’s nice to step back this holiday season, and finally get to see all the beauty we created shooting on location along with the stories and memories. We’d slip on our clogs to fetch our freshly made milk and cookies, plucked flowers in our oversize wool totes, and danced in what felt like the middle of nowhere. For now, stay warm and keep on dreaming lovebugs.

THE CORSET DRESS | LONDON

The shape of this Ellery dress is like a work of art. An exaggerated waistline, beautiful puffy sleeve, and flouncy skirt. I’m in love with this feminine, corset-like cut. It creates a delicate, beautiful shape of the female body, just seeing it hanging on a hanger. I’ve never seen anything like it! Here I am taking it for a walk in Notting Hill, London. The only way to survive the breezy London air, is to always pair your dress over a pair of trousers. Key to traveling abroad come December? Layer, layer, layer and experiment. Voila. Another epic work week in London accomplished, with a whole lot of killer looks to go with it. You may be wondering where in the world I am now, but I’m completely de-layered for a month back home in sunny Los Angeles. I’ve been in town for a new campaign, and of course shooting and editing loads that will go live before the New Year. Team Suarez has either been stuck in the studio or tied up in Lightroom wrapping up some last-minute holiday projects. It’s almost, ALMOST time for me to unplug for one summer-y Christmas in LA. Until then, this girl is in the zone.
