On the Seaside

(Volcom top and pants, Dolce Vita from Helianthus boots, Koshka bag, Vintage hat)

I realized my style completely changes depending on what coast I’m on. On the East Coast, my style is a lot more simple and classic, and then I jump on a plane to California and BAM, I’ve got a lot more color and funkiness. Basically, I haven’t worn a hat in MONTHS. I am also donning a full on Volcom ensemble. Representing my California natives of course! Main reason I’m back in Cali for the week is continue my work with Volcom. I just shot the summer ’12 campaign and already, moving into design with the brand! I just made a visit to the Volcom headquarters down in Costa Mesa the other day to review the final samples for my Fall ’12 design collaboration. I am BEYOND excited for my pieces to come out next year and to see people on the street wearing clothes with my name on it! So surreal, I really need to pinch myself. Expect some killer separates: we’re talking a staple dress, skirt, vest, and some HOT HOT blouses. Next up? My Holiday ’12 design collabooooo. For the holiday season, all I can think about are sparkles, lace, and all sorts of yummy goodness. Sketches and color palettes are floating about the office before we get into production and create some samples. This is one project that I’m super duper OUT OF THIS WORLD stoked about! Being volcomized has never felt so good…

Keep up with my Fall ’12 design collab project and meet my Volcom design partner in crime, Grace Lee, here on VOLCOMUNITY!!

    First of all: congrats with the Volcom collaboration! I’m so curious to see how your pieces will look like! Keep us updated 😉

    About the outfit: I really really love this one! The colors match so well and the textures are amazing. Nonchalant and still extremely cool. The bag is one of the prettiest I’ve seen since some time and that hat would look so good in my closet. Oh, and the blouse is absolutely fab. Yummy outfit!
