CASTING SPELLS

There's just something so great about the DUSTER. I've already got this fall trend on my mind. Mine will cast spells, and with it's sheer hem, it's a piece that'll turn heads, blowing in the cool night breeze. Black and white. There are just those days when I want to blend into the East Village's dark grit, and go incognito, shaded by my widebrimmed hat. A little studs, a little lace. For me, it's always all about the details. Even if I'm ON or OFF DUTY, on or off set! That's what I love about my job. I get to wear what I want whenever I want....keeping the city spellbound.

A DATE WITH SUBOO X PANDORA

Yep, I had a SERIOUS date with Pandora x SUBOO. Over pancakes, chicken waffles, and mimosas of course. Both designer labels I've coveted forever and ever. And during Miami Swim Week, the pair teamed up to put on one of my favorite shows! I knew SUBOO would put on something a bit more edgy than everything else we've seen. Why do Aussie's do swim SO GOOD?! The black cut-outs, the leather-like swimsuits. It was dark, yet it was light. The badass vibes were softened with gorgeous florals and white. It's their high, sporty necklines and "oo my bootie looks good!" low bottoms that get me every season. Pandora pulled these looks together with a simple charmed band on each model down the runway. Classic. Just the way I like it.

THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS


Yep, THEY ARE BACK IN TOWN. I love when Mama and Papa come to visit. They will be on set of this week's shoots, with the sis and I during late night dinners, and of course, making it into all of my photos. Everytime they are in town, we go on some trip. The latest? BOSTON. My mother had it on her mind for a while, and I am SO happy we made the trip. Boston is gorgeous. It's the typical, quaint, and beautiful East Coast city. The sloped and charming streets of Beacon Hill through the shops in Back Bay, and to North End. I think we walked the entire city in just one day! Talk about exhausting, but well, worth it. What's not to love? Eventually you just want to sit on down with a good ol' draft beer and soak it all in. For our last minute travels, I just packed my favorite little dresses. Fuss-free, and fun pieces. I've fallen madly and deeply in love with KISUA. They have feminine and absolutely incredible, unqiue shapes. I love this bell sleeved little mini dress. It's the perfect "I'm going DANCING" dress. It's over the top. And you know how much I love my statement pieces. I also went for the long blue dress...so slimming and flattering, that all you need with it is your favorite pair of shades, and a pair of birks. KISUA, you have made my summer nights!

WARRIOR WOMAN // 6 Shore Road runway

I made a super special appearance on the 6 Shore Road runway show during Miami Swim Week! Closing the show, and all smiles down the runway with designer Pooja for the grand finale. I hadn't walked the runway in YEARS. It was like my 17 year old self again....walking the likes of YSL, Nina Ricci, Marc Jacobs. So many memories. But never have I done SWIM WEEK. I closed the 6 Shore Road show in the gorgeous neon embroidered Tigress Kaftan. Inspired by the warrior women of Nepal, I was decked in gorgeous silver hardware, white henna, a badass nose ring, and extra thick black eyeliner. I absolutely love this type of look. The hair, a twisted braid down the back. Never can I get over her gorgeous prints, and eclectic cut-out swimsuits and coverups. I had the best time playing WARRIOR WOMAN on the catwalk. Who knows when my next runway show will be...maybe NYFW?
