70's Suede

The 70's trend has remained strong in fashion over the past few years. Designers continue to have an infatuation with the post-hippie era. Buying and selling vintage is incredibly popular in mainstream culture. When looking a new clothing inspired by 70's styles, the pieces now have materialized into a more modern clean version. Styles focus on rich neutral separates, and detailed fabrics. 

This outfit I styled is all about the suede. I fell in love with these brown lace up shorts the moment I put them on. I was transported to a different time, and enjoyed showing my legs. The lace up detail on the side, gave a peek-a-boo of skin. All of the pieces were vintage, but  with the help of Shop Future, we were able to adapt to this outfit to the present. This fringe suede jacket, made me feel like a band babe. This summer outfit, is perfect for any festival. Boho style is always a fan favorite at such events (Bonnaroo this weekend wish I was there). I feel very comfortable in this eras clothing. Maybe it has to do with my hair- I am often told the volume is very Farrah Fawcett. I had such a blast collating with this team, and want to start buying more vintage. It helps the environment and aids in creating an effortless uniqueness to my wardrobe.

Braided Babe

Here is the third look from my collab with vintage studio Shop Future. This down-to-earth look was inspired by the California girl of the past. Free-spirited, sun soaked and simple. 
This pair of dark wash flares were made from the softest fabric. The front pockets were darling, and added a detail only found with vintage pieces. Anytime I wear bell-bottoms, I like to rock a chunky heel or platform. A tall pair of shoes makes me look even taller and helps me feel even more confident. These Topshop shoes (which I have worn in many other shoes) are incredibly comfortable, and despite the daunting height. I do think wearing vintage-statemtn pieces takes a little more confidence to wear everyday. It is easy to go to the mall and by the latest trend from any department store. What makes Shop Future and other vintage focused brands cool, is adapting styles from other decades to fit the modern style of today. I paired an easy white tee with the super rad denim. White t-shirts are my favorite basic, and I do not think they can ever go out of style (for men and women). 
I was lucky to have hairstylist Briana Dunning on this shoot. She created the perfect braided crown for me even with my temperamental hair. I kept this hairstyle up for the rest of the day and it did not fall out. I have since experimented, attempting my best to re-create the up-do myself. I loved not having to worry about my hair. For looking so girly, this hairstyle was incredibly practical. I enjoyed the break from the habit of playing and flipping my hair. It was off my face and literally took a load off my shoulders. I think this hairstyle will become more regular in my routine as summer nears closer.

Camo Cameo


This is the second look from my collab with local vintage studio Shop Future. This look is a little edgy, and a little rocker. We snuck up to a rooftop in Hollywood, which is fitting for this rebellious look. I am obsessed with the cut of these vintage Calvin Klein jeans. The hem length is unexpected, and add a punk vibe to this look. I never wear camouflage print, but my favorite part of this look is this worn in t-shirt we cut to a crop. I felt ultra-cool and little outside of my normal style in this look. 
I talk about girl power a lot on my blog.
Fact- this collaboration is brought to you by an all female team. I believe in practicing what you preach- so I made an effort to find a rad group of girl bosses to work with. It's easy to ramble your beliefs online. But I think that is useless, unless you live out those beliefs fully in your life. Thats why I seek out opportunities to help other female artists, stylist, and photographers to shine. I write a fashion blog, but it is sort of the camouflage to address the important stuff in the world.
