UNDERWATER STYLE

ok, so let me start off by saying some of you might read this post and think i have lost my mind a little bit. but hear me out, ok?

i have always been fascinated with underwater shoots. whether that be watching planet blue like it’s my job, or admiring fashion shoots executed underwater. i’ve always had a thing for jellyfish too (remember this post!?) so i thought it would be cool to shoot this week’s style post underwater. and no, this isn’t the most “shoppable” outfit but it’s interesting to study the layers and movement of fabrics in a new environment. well, at least i thought so.

check out how sweet this gold lamé skirt looks when submerged in water. close up (above) and far away (below)…

or this yellow gauzy skirt that created an insane effect once it touched the water…

we had fun shooting for a while in an isolated pool of a downtown rooftop with an underwater film camera. which is always exciting because you never know what you are going to get. i was really pleased at the abstract result and could even picture these blown up large on the wall.

and now for the contest i never won as a child…

came with me that day and shot with his under the water. have you guys ever played around with one of those? they’re super cool!

then i decided to give myself an hour (yes, i’m a loser and time myself sometimes) to try to edit the footage in photoshop into a short little movie. you know how we teach you to all in photoshop now? (class and ) those skills are really helpful when you just want to make a short video to accompany your post! watch here:

STYLE / 63

when i saw this vintage dress on the hanger, my mind did envision my childhood barbie wearing it. i thought it was going to look over the top, but i figured i would try it on just for kicks. i was pleasantly surprised that i actually really loved it. (that’s why i always try everything on – i have never been one of those girls that could just look at something and knows it will fit)

so here’s my inspiration for this style shoot…

/ /

then i saw that had scouted this beautiful pool that had the most magnificent blue teal colors happening — a perfect compliment to the pink and purple number. and remember that feathered friend i picked up at the rosebowl? i knew i would put that to use one day!


one of my favorite hairstyles has always been the half up look. the fishtail braid pinned back was a nice switch up. (i actually had to brush my hair for this shoot which was pretty awful. but it’s nice feeling a little more girly every now and then) this outfit might be a little too fancy for a date, but i would wear it to a party or an event for sure. this dress shape was made for dancing.

for the past few months i have been really into the circle cheek blush look (see, kinda like ). it’s doll-like and fun to pair with bold eyelashes for a night on the town.

T-MOBILE COMMERCIAL!

well this is a fun announcement! I was chosen with 4 other bloggers to be a part of this cool commercial last month for the . we got to hang around on a rooftop downtown and document a concert with our phones — which was EASY for me because I love taking phone pics! I met some really awesome people (usually when I hear I will be working with other bloggers it’s mostly girls, but this was 4 guys!)

I loved being a part of this campaign and that song is eternally in my head after so many takes that night. watch the video and let me know whatcha think, will you?

follow my new friends on that were also a part of it! , , and

LA SHOP / POKETO


one of my recent goals has been to document more of my favorite shops and restaurants. there is an enormous amount of cool places to go in LA so I have been bringing around with me to shoot them for the blog! (she also shot this flea market post)

this week we hit up the in downtown LA! ted & angie are actually my next door neighbors so when they told me they were opening up a store in the neighborhood (here is their ) i rushed over there to check it out.


poketo is now my go-to gift stop. need a little gift for a friend’s birthday? or a house warming gift? here’s the place. and major cool points on the decor in there, huh? now i want a room in my house made out of plywood.


my boyfriend rode his bike over to say hello during the shoot. he looks quite athletic here!


i bought the clutch with the baby triangles on it for my assistant’s birthday. just LOOK at how many cool ones are on the website!

and ! your clutches kill me. perfect color choices on those neon stripes.


they have a little section of bathroom items like striped towels, nice soaps and containers. everything they have is high quality, and they have edited it down so nicely. i loved seeing SO many of the items that I have chosen for our past in there! it made me feel like i was doing somethin right!


my favorite section there is the glassware and little planters. so much charm!


i bought this A-frame succulent planter below for our new house. I have already picked the perfect window for it.


hopefully you enjoyed your little tour of the poketo shop! make sure to stop by and pick up a little treasure for yourself.
