Bebe Video!

About a week ago, Dylana and I were asked to do a video interview for Bebe! We had a fantastic time trying on all the latest Bebe looks at the store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. I stumbled upon some really cute frocks in everything from animal prints to velvet to sheer fabrics. There were many different shapes as well! Maxis along with some adorable body-con pieces. I ended up keeping the white dress I loved it so much! It was awesome to get to do this project for Bebe with my gorgeous sister Dylana! Even though we are so different, we have so much in common. Watch the video below! I hope you like it as much as I do!

Fun at Free People!

My trip to Philadelphia was once again a blast! Spent a few days shooting web for Free People! Here are some behind the scenes shots taken at the office. I had an amazing time shooting looks! It was great to see everyone again from the catalog shoot as well! Took a few snapshots of my cute hapa mamas from design: Oanh Doan and Kris Chau (check out Chau Chau’s blog HERE to see more of her art)! As you can see, there is a major height difference hehe!

Also, there are my “model off duty” style pics I found on the Free People blog! I’ve been meaning to wear this vintage fringe shawl. It’s very bohemian and once of my favorite pieces to throw over a neutral look! Whenever I travel for work, I always find myself in super skinny jeans and simple tops with a few accessories thrown in. Just easy, light pieces that fit in my small carry-on bag.

It was awesome working in studio and seeing the way FP layers their pieces. Very boho chic. I love how the Holiday collection features bralettes over thermals and dresses. I recently got myself a few of their bralettes just to try out the look! Here is a sneak peek at the new Free People Holiday catalog including an intro to Wee People (free people kids!). Absolutely stunning photography!

The Chill Bites

(Vintage Betsey Johnson dress, Promod blazer, Spotted Moth scarf, Vintage Bag, Cole Haan Boots)

Everyday it feels like it is getting chillier and chillier. I take walks every night and that’s when you can really feel the chill biting you in the behind! This fall I am really diggin velvet. Black velvet in particular. When I found this vintage Betsey maxi dress about a week ago, I nearly fainted. It has a really cute open back as well (not pictured lol) so it’s got a cool amish from the front, sexy from the back thing going on haha. And with this perfectly gloomy fall weather, I find myself bundling up in this cream circle scarf by Spotted Moth. It’s just one of those pieces you have to have this time of year.

These photos were once again taken behind a nearby church. It was pretty much deserted and gave off a really isolated feel. Perfect for taking a few chilly day photos!

Right now, I’m looking at my to-do list and kind of having a mini panic attack. So much to do! I’ve got to pack up for Philly and do a bunch of little things before I take off in the morning. But I look forward to a Sunday stroll in the local pumpkin patch…I love the October festivities! Check out my October inspiiirrattionn.
Chunky chunky scarves, long skirts, thick brows (don’t even think of plucking them girls), and grungy jackets. you like?

Btw, much thanks to MyFDB (My Fashion Database) for the write-up on my blog! I really appreciate it. So happy to be your lil weekend read! Read about it HERE!

Stevie Style

(Vintage top and hat, Free People skirt)

Stevie Nicks has always been an inspiration to me. First off, I looove her sultry, husky voice. She also had really cool bohemian style…always rockin floppy hats, vintage tops, and maxi skirts. She has inspired me to whip out my best boho/stevie inspired outfit: vintage blouse paired with a floral skirt. Fun and crazy (the 60’s Picnik setting helps too hehe). Now I just need some back up to “Edge of Seventeen,” my fave Stevie song!

Besides my desire to be the next Stevie lol, I’m currently ecstatic that the weekend has finally arrived. This week has been insane. I’ve been busy running around town for school, work, and meetings. All in all, it was fun! But I am soo ready to sleep in. Next week, I’m going to be off to Philadelphia, working more Free People! I am stoked! LOVE LOVE LOVE Philly. and gotta love the cheese steak sandwiches! Will for sure take some photos. I promise to pack lightly!
