put a ribbon on it

4.28.2016
The choker trend has been killin' it lately and I am so happy I gave in. Instead of paying the ridiculous amount of money I've seen pieces of string going for around the internet, I just pulled some ribbon out of my sewing stuff because why wouldn't you??? This look makes me feel so good: like a Victorian prostitute or maybe Emily Browning in Series of Unfortunate Events. Looooovin' it.

Bosch by Tim Walker

4.22.2016
I'm currently working on my Honors Thesis at UCLA. It feels very intimidating not only because it's a 30 page research paper that I have to get an A on to pass, but also because I care deeply about the subject. I'm writing about women in the art of Hieronymus Bosch.  I found Bosch my freshman year of college in my first ever Art History class. I fell in love with the colors and the weird magic and the frightening worlds he created 500 years ago. Not much is known about Bosch and that is what makes him so fascinating to study. You can come up with all kinds of theories about him and no one can really tell you that you are wrong. 


For Love Magazine's S/S 2016 issue, Tim Walker (the photographic love of my life) interpreted the work of Hieronymus Bosch (the Northern Renaissance love of my life). It was a dream come true...I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw it. Tim Walker perfected captured the eerie feeling you get when you look at Bosch. With Valentino gowns and costumes by Shona Heath, this marvelous series was born. My only sadness is that I couldn't be there to witness it.

For the Love of Flowers

4.17.2016
I went home to NorCal this weekend. I wanted to see all the flowers in bloom so I made the seven hour drive with Ian. Oh my god the place is beautiful. I live in LA for now, but I just don't know how long I can deny how much I need to be where the trees and flowers are. Those little white flowers that look like little bells are called Fairy Lanterns and I've only ever seen them where I live. This year there were HUNDREDS of them, and my dad thinks I used magic to grow so many of them. It felt magical...I put a lot of energy into calling upon them and then to see that many was incredible. We also visited a nursery that had at least a thousand calla lilies lining their creek. Ugh it all just felt magical and right. I miss home already.

jumpin

4.13.2016

A while ago I made bold claims about "I never want to put Forever21 on my blog!!!" But here I am because I think this jumpsuit is freaking cute. I bought it online on a whim and didn't realize how big the pants would be but I am SO HAPPY they are so big. It's just such a fun piece to wear. It seems like people in Los Angeles feel the need to be "LA Cool" all the time and I haven't seen anything really fun in a while. So this is my attempt to add a little whimsy to my world through insane proportions and paisley. Please enjoy.

Twenty-Three

4.11.2016
Hey hey. This is just a small catch-up post. I am currently sitting on my couch, it's 10:23 PM. I just finished House of Cards. I have been scared of all the unseen spiders in my house. It makes me very uneasy--that, and all the unfinished (or unstarted) work I have to do. This weekend was my 23rd birthday. My love and I went to Disneyland and I felt fully like myself. I adore Disneyland. Ian got me a new leather jacket for my birthday and I was very excited to by a Pirates of the Caribbean pin to go with it. I hope my 23rd year is good to me, and that I am good to it. Just 8 more weeks of college and I will finally graduate. Hopefully I can take some photos soon or do something interesting. For now, I have a lot of work to do.

Inspiration: Cass Bird

3.24.2016
Cass Bird is the coolest photographer in fashion, I think. As much as I love Tim Walker for his dreaminess and Peter Lindbergh for his mystery, sometimes I want someone who just understands women and how it actually feels to be a person on the earth. Cass Bird's photos are playful, but they make every action in them seem beautiful and important. You can feel the grass on your toes and the wind in your hair when you look at them. She also shoots the raddest people and her Instagram (x) is hilarious. She's been shooting a lot of films for Vogue (x) lately too and those are making me admit, most embarrassedly, that I think Kendall Jenner is at least a little charming maybe??? Anyways, I want to incorporate into my photography the spontaneity she has mastered.

A Little Rocksbox Love

3.21.2016
This is just a little post about my favorite pieces I have gotten from Rocksbox. They approached me about one year ago to test out their service for my blog. After about two boxes I loved it, and I applied for a job there! So now, about a year later, I am still in love with Rocksbox. I get to curate boxes of jewelry for people all over the country and it's just so fun to make people feel beautiful. I also love a ton of our pieces and we only build on our collection. These are a few of my faves. 


In these photos I am wearing: Jenny Bird Moonsong Cuff, Kendra Scott Lyle Hand Bracelet in Black Mother of Pearl, Kendra Scott Ear Jacket in Blue Kyocera Opal,  Kendra Scott Grady Bangle in Periwinkle, Kendra Scott Brennan Ring Set in Rose Gold, Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat, and Gorjana Taner Ear Climbers.
