Day Dreaming in Chriselle X J.O.A

Sometimes a dress is more than just a dress. A garment has the ability to inspire the imagination, and illuminate the beauty within ourselves. This piece from the Chriselle Lim x Just One Answer collection does that for me. It was love at first sight with this dress (and that's rare for me). Buttoning it up in the dressing room, I felt a shift. It is magic when we find a article of clothing that can makes us feel more like ourselves. Fashion blogger Chriselle Lim, mentioned the collection was inspired by one of my favorite movies Roman Holiday. So for this shoot, I reimagined what a modern day Audrey Hepburn in Los Angeles would feel like. 
This dress transports me to hot summer nights in Rome. Tan skin, wine lips, and feeling sexy in my own way. Walking the ivy lined streets of the Travestere. Sticky fingers from rich gelato. A slow setting sun, making the city golden. I find myself dreaming of far off places often, and I see how my travels have infused in my style. I like being malleable when I am exploring the world. Soaking in, and absorbing everything different from my own life in California. 
Strive to find clothing that elevates the everyday to something magical. I think that's why I fell in love with fashion. Even when I am feeling low, or lacking in confidence, I can pull a piece from my closet that somehow brightens my day. The right outfit illuminates what is special within me, and allows me to reveal my full self to the world. Clothing is not meant to hide you. It should help you be the most authentic + brave version of yourself.
