STYLE / 68

remember that post i did a while back with fun date ideas? you have to add this to it. is located in downtown LA and is named the “shortest railway in the world.” angela and i walked up to it to shoot a style post on the train and thought this would make a very cute date.

the railway was originally built in 1901, and was used to ferry prominent bunker hill citizens up and down the steep hill between hill and olive.

it might be the shortest date ever, but when you’ve been dating for 4 years you just need fun new sights to see together. right? this train costs 50 cents each way, the interior is adorable and somehow the trip (even though it’s about 1 minute or less) is pretty magical.

the guy at the counter was so friendly! check out that smile. (and even the tickets feel old school. a good memory to keep)

this train is a true LA treasure. i am so happy to know about it.

and the outfit details… dress, belt, teal flats.

hope you guys check out angel’s flight, i think you will love it! -bri

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.

see some of the outtakes over on
