Beneath Your Beautiful Campaign

I had the opportunity to work as Model Coordinator at my good friend, Joy Ubani’s event—the Beneath Your Beautiful campaign. I love this event because it seeks to empower self-esteem through fashion. Which is exactly what I believe fashion does, if you let YOUR beautiful shine through!  Check it out:

The other knowles.

Solange-NY-mag

Everybody knows Beyonce Knowles. Beyonce, Queen Bey, Jay Z’s Wife, whichever you prefer. She is so fabulous that Beyonce that we all try to dance like her—but, you know. We could talk about Beyonce all day, I know. But did you know that her sister Solange Knowles has an album or two?! Her newest EP, True, is not fierce like Beyonce’s 4, but it’s cool. Its vibe-y.
Plus, she dresses so cool:

Burberry Prorsum, Killin’ it.

Burberry Prorsum is the forward-thinking line of well-established British brand, Burberry. During London Fashion Week, they showed a fantastic Spring 2014 Ready to Wear line which focused on pretty pastels and the celebration of women. I just want to wear everything! I love the way the Burberry explains the collection—a sort of “decadence.” I see it. Can I wear everything? It’s fabulous. H to T, as Tyra Banks would say.

Now Loving: Baseball Jackets.

I’m going to do a big haul soon for some new cold-er weather clothes. I can’t wait for this shopping spree. So this series, “Now Loving” will collectively be my shopping list—hopefully I’ll find some great clothes! So to start off, I’ve been seeing baseball jackets everywhere and they are so fantastic. Who knew these used-to-be-sports-only jackets would become a fashion staple? But how chic are they!?

Check out the acoustic version of one of my favorite songs on the album, Replay:

Go girl!  Okay, now a lesson in werk from this pro. Her style is the perfect mix of cool with a definite hip-hop influence and girly with a glamorous vibe. Love love love this girl’s style!

What day in LA isn’t lovely? It’s always a great day to go down to the Melrose Trading Post! I’m getting to that point where my summer wardrobe is wearing thin (come quick, fall!) so I’m coming up with new ways to wear the pieces I have. I’ve always been wary of mixing prints because there is a definite way to do it, but I got out my leopard print shorts from Forever 21, my mirrored floral dress from Urban Outfittters, my fave BP. round sunnies, and my BP. studded bag and loved it:
