Shoulder Pad Wonders

Working in the fashion industry calls for you to have a staple. Grace Coddington has her gorgeous red hair, Anna Wintour’s black sunglasses will never be forgotten, and Danielle Bernstein’s minimalist yet intricate vibe is copied world wide. When I realized mine is a shoulder-padded blazer paired with sunnies, I couldn’t have been happier.

Bridges and Beaches Supply Co.

I spent the day at the beach with Derrick Russell to work on a special project. Connecting over Instagram, we learned that we were signed with the same modeling agency. The conversation carried on to our personal businesses; mine being the blog and his being his California apparel brand. When I learned the story behind Bridges and Beaches Supply Co. (BBSC), I would be doing an injustice to my fellow NorCal dwellers if I did not feature it on the blog.

Time-Saving Jewelry? Yes Please.

I tend to find myself going through a common cycle. During winter and fall, I wear a ton of minimal black, grey, and white. A lot of duster coats, turtlenecks, and high waisted denim. When a hint of a summer breeze blows through, I slowly pull out my earth-toned, patterned pieces and start to latch on to the bohemian style. My baseball caps and ambassador brand t-shirts come out as hiking season begins. It’s completely night and day.
