Falling for Trends

Happy First Day of Fall everyone, tis my favorite time of year! This little post is a mashup of my favorite things: coffee breaks, work, and fall fashion. I apologize for being missing in action though, I took some time to recover from styling a commercial in Los Angeles as well as wrapping the whole thing. After being gone from set-life for a wee bit, I am happy to say I nailed it. Getting that confirmation from an all male production company as well as Client is really satisfying. Per usual no photos or more info until the actual thing airs, however this was my 3rd International shoot that I have single handedly been Wardrobe Head. for; this time shooting with Nongshim Co. the biggest instant noodle and snack company in South Korea :D The Dominos of Asia if you will. The commercial will air overseas featuring a certain known actor, he has a movie out now in theaters, maybe you’ve seen it already…but until then I can’t say much more….I hate that. *waits patiently.*

Anyhoo, now that I’m back in the Bay, it’s starting to feel like Fall…kind of? It was about 98 degrees and rising in Los Angeles and I’m happy to be incorporating some of my favorite Fall trends into my closet such as the color Blush (pullover from Banana Republic) and this awesome faux suede 70’s skirt from H&M. I don’t normally veer too far from my relatively basic neutral outfits, however I like these two trends and I think I’ll be wearing more of these skirts with some button down blouses and T shirts just to get out of my wardrobe rutt. Gotta stay fresh, people.

Hope you’re having a great week and as always thanks for reading!

Blush is the color for Fall, and since I'm not a pink gal I prefer this tone because it's a subtle one :D

What’s Good, Claire Underwood?

They say behind every great man is a great woman, but in House of Cards, a step ahead of every great man is an impeccably dressed Claire Underwood. I’m talking about power looks. Memorable, feminine, but strong pieces down to the heels can make you walk, talk, and stand with purpose you might not even know you had.

Claire’s a bad bitch, quite possibly too bad for her own good, but hey that’s entertainment. I’d know, I’ve been in the industry for a decade, which I should mention is changing rather rapidly for me. I’ll post more about the turn my career has taken in the next weeks to come, but until then hang tight as I come to terms with the changes :)

Channeling my favorite Underwood, I pulled together this rather simple power look and instantly I was fired up.

Huge thanks to Erich Chen for this set, for our first shoot together I couldn’t be happier.
