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.
I’ve been drawn to vintage/worn-in tie-dye tees lately. The best ones in Goodwill or in vintage shops are always the kid sizes. They have profound graphics and color. When I found this one, I was shopping for a styling job. I couldn’t say no.
Cigarette smoke, aged cologne, and alcohol is the perfume of the Excalibur lobby in Las Vegas, Nevada. Maybe not the most pleasant of smells, but it excited me. I had never been to the gambling capital of the U.S. The flashing neon lights of slot machines and the dimmed lights of the casino hotel were enough to put you in a party mood all day. Immediately I understood the appeal and the hope of a prize that came in the Las Vegas air. There was only one problem… my boyfriend and I are only 20.
