Breezy Days

Wind is either a nuisance or a welcomed addition while you are on set. During my blog photoshoots, there is only me and the photographer. We do not have help setting up the shot, and it is all organic. The wind was a bit strong, but it captured the raw beauty of this place.

Downtown bliss

An outfit that makes you feel a bit more confident is something to learn from. Find out what elements make you stand taller, and incorporate them into other outfits! For me, it has always been having extra fabric flowing behind me. I love a little pop of color. This is how I incorporated both of those styles into one outfit.

Ancient silhouette

There is so much confusion as to what the word “tunic” actually describes. It started in the Roman Empire in the 3rd century BC. A Roman tunic was used as an under garment for a toga or just a long shirt for the lower classes. The word evolved with history, and it ended up describing a shirt, layering piece, and a dress. Different class identifications were associated with it as civilizations came and went.

Stitches of the past

When people hear the word “vintage”, there are thoughts that link to it. People often think of hipsters or old musty clothing. I wear vintage 4 out of the 7 days of the week, and most of my outfits lean toward the modern look. It’s not about the individual piece, it’s how you style it.

Wearing a head-to-toe look from your favorite brand or store always gives you an extra boost of confidence. This white ensemble is from my favorite store, Mercy Vintage in Oakland, CA.

Tickled Pink

In the mid-season between the talk of summer and fall fashion, I like to take risks when buying new pieces. Since fall shows are right around the corner, trends tend to go up in the air. People are watching the streets for new, emerging style choices. These out of the box choices tend to be influencers for the new fall collections.
