This was one of my favorite outfits from my shoot in Venice for the & Other Stories LA Collection. We were walking through the residential streets off of Abbot Kinney, and my eyes were glued to this baby pink building with sea foam trimming. Cacti spotted around its borders. It is quite possible that this is actually THE Venice Beach dream house. Romantic in the most retro of ways. And right around the corner from my favorite coffee sand matcha spots. I felt that its pastels were the perfect backdrop to contrast against the starkness of this shaggy knit jacket. I was laced up all the way to my neck, and I felt like I should have been carrying around a book of poetry. Or at least a blank notebook where I could write my own words down. Denim on my legs because it’s in the DNA of the city. And that DNA of Los Angeles, well, its burrowed deep down inside of me even though I am so committed to my east coast life for right now. Home is a huge part of me. I grew up exploring these streets, watching it develop and grow, change for both the good and the bad. I went to school here and spent my weekends taking a bus to spend my days by the beach. Home has inspired my style in endless amounts. You can always find a piece of California in the way I throw my looks together. Always a little disheveled. Verging on casual. Ready for anything. More and more, I start to think . . . now wouldn’t it be nice to have a little house in Venice, with a front yard, and a little dog, and a reliable hit of sunshine on my porch every single morning where I can sit coffee barefooted and inspired to live out my day slowly but passionately? Mmmm. Maybe someday again the pull will be strong enough to actually get me to stay for good.

Natalie and I had the pleasure of flying back home to Los Angeles for a few days to visit the brand new & Other Stories LA Atelier, and brainstorm a shoot featuring the brand’s Los Angeles inspired collection that just hit stores. We have visited the Paris Atelier last summer, which felt very, well, distinctly Parisian. A little bit moody. Definitely the home of French artists. But the Los Angeles atelier was exactly what I pictured it to be. Bright and sunny. Windows for days. Succulents and long, leafy potted plants at every corner. Books on surfing and other California type things. Rugs for lounging bare legged and bare foot. Bohemian, minimal is the best way to describe the environment, which was the perfect backdrop for the new collection that we got to explore alongside the designers. What a beautiful intro we had to the collection and history of the Stockholm-based brand. Now we’ll have to see the Stockholm Atelier next, and we’ll keep you updated on that. I’ll be posting the images from our & Other Stories shoot in Venice, California. Hope you love. For now, enjoy your Saturday! I’m relaxing at home after our trip, tidying up my home and catching up on some editing and writing. Saturdays spent inspiration gathering are my favorite.

I recently visited the brand new B Collection by Bobeau Collective Co-Op in NYC’s Meatpacking District. It was full of holiday wonders for my mom and girlfriends, like this velvet blazer and these pleated palazzo pants. I love the brand’s affordability, effortless nature and super cozy fabrics that give us even more reason to stay in and relax. Everything drapes casually, but still feels feminine and sophisticated. And with the right touch, anything can be escalated for a night out on the time. Another amazing aspect is that the brand creates their own fabrics, so you can be sure that everything feels extra special to the touch. I brought a little of my own personality to my B Collection look with a red lip, some mesh and a little sneaker action.
Make sure to check out the Collective Co-Op at 410 W. 14th Street in NYC.
