Surprisingly after over seven years of living in Los Angeles this was my first visit to the Venice Canals. It couldn’t be more picturesque…the perfectly manicured shrubbery framing the eclectic and colorful homes, the miniature paddle boats and canoes, and the gorgeous arched bridges that rise over the canals about each quarter mile. With groups of tourists walking through by the dozens, privacy sure can’t be your main concern if you choose to live here. But wow, that’s definitely something I would consider sacrificing to live in a canal front home. The November colors of the canals couldn’t be more fitting and romantic for this Pachamama Bohemian shawl and Duke of Jahan body chain. Continue reading
She knows she’s been naughty…
No matter how naughty she is, Bowie will forever be our spoiled little nugget. Forcing her into the most adorable doggie romper ever is probably punishment enough for the recent large rip in the white couch and random mystery stains that accent each carpeted room. Undoubtedly I can only stay mad at this little gremlin for no more than five minutes. Then it goes back feeding her bon-bons and rawhides. I’m such a pushover when it comes to her that she even got her Christmas PupBox early! You can spoil your favorite little naughty fur ball with a PupBox subscription at $20 off with code Howliday20. Just 3 more days to order for Christmas delivery! Continue reading
A sunshine daydream.
There is nothing cozier than your favorite worn-in vintage tee. The kind where the fabric is so soft that you wear it to bed and then don’t take it off for the rest of the day. Take that staple, give it a deep-v, turn it into a onesie and you have the ultimate bedtime/daytime romper. Pacific and Driftwood fittingly calls this romper line “Sleep with Me.” You can’t deny something that’s softer than your highest thread count sheets and just as sexy as your best little black dress. Paired with magical gypsy pieces from Adorn by Sarah Lewis, I couldn’t have dreamt up a better ensemble.

A few months ago I had the privilege of working with amazing boudoir photographer, Karen Stewart. From a mutual love of each others Instagram accounts we planned a shoot in Bakersfield, California where Karen is based. With run down farms and cotton fields dominating much of the outskirts of the city, it was definitely a perfect place to capture a western bohemian vibe. There’s nothing like the quest to get the perfect shot at magic hour. There’s definitely something exciting about pulling up on an amazing location right before the sun sets and hoping everything falls into place to capture the right look in a five to ten minute window. We had some magical moments while the sun was setting, and even some just at dusk. Karen’s photography is all about the art of being a woman and you can see the passion in her photos. From bridal shoots, pregnancy photos, fashion shoots, to classy boudoir, Karen captures women in their most beautiful state. Continue reading
It’s been a long time coming and I’m so excited for the official String Chix music video release! For the past two and half years we’ve been performing with Shania Twain. Coming up on our last leg of our residency in Las Vegas with Shania Twain this month, we finally finished our music video! Most of you probably know me as a fashion blogger, but here’s a peak into my day job:) If you’re in the Vegas area this month you can catch us live with Shania from 12/6-12/13 at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace. Enjoy, and I will love you forever if you give this video a little share!! xoxo
