Photography by Karen Chen

I’ve been patiently waiting for the weather to slightly drop so I could finally wear my new (faux) leopard coat , but just as expected, the days are only getting warmer here in LA.  Not that I should be complaining, as I’ll be heading to freezing New York very soon!

As much as I love my statement pieces, such as this leopard coat, I cannot emphasize the importance of having the right basics. With the right basics the possibilities of mixing & matching are endless. Lets talk about the few essentials that every girl should have in their closet- A knit sweater, black skinnies, a striped shirt, and a pair of pumps… no excuses! Instead of opting for your basic black jeans, look for subtle variations such as this lace detail on these MYNE skinny trousers.

Anyways I shot these the other day with the talented Karen Chen on our rooftop.  It’s been a long while since i’ve done a rooftop shoot, but it always brings me back to when I first moved into our office about a year ago, we were shooting up here almost everyday!

NOW: Sitting on top of downtown LA in confidence


THEN: EXACTLY 1 YEAR AGO  standing on the same rooftop  with big hopes &  dreams:


You could move mountains with faith, dreams, and hard work! 1 year flies by fast, where do YOU want to be a year from now??

Time to get to work!!
