A little behind the scenes from last week’s shoot with GENLUX magazine! Quite ecstatic about not only being able to style this editorial, but also being The Face Of/ Model for this story! Got to style myself in some of my favorite pieces from Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Preen, Givenchy, Alexander Mcqueen, etc. (Courtesy of my favorite Boutique in Los Angeles- Satine Boutique). I decided to work around staples and wardrobe essentials that all women need in their closet for this winter! Simply cant wait for the holiday issue to hit stands in December so I can share with you guys the full story!

I’ll probably be on a plane to NY by the time you guys are reading this entry!! En route to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! I’ll be seeing you guys on tomorrow’s entry in full glitz & glamour!!

Hope you have a glamorous day!

Something little as seeing your name on print as the official “Style & Fashion Director” got me quite excited today! This is my first issue as GENLUX’s Fashion & Style director so please check it out! We have 2 editorials I personally styled in this issue…One being this editorial “DADAIST” and another editorial with President Vicente Fox and his wife!

Fall is my favorite season to dress up for…this season it’s all about the Rich & Royal hues such as mahogany red, jade green, burnt orange, & plum purples. TGIF (Thank God It’s FALL) !!!!

Dreams Of Plaid & Dots

posted by on 2011.10.03, under Outfit Of The Day

After a week long vacation i’m finally ready to get back to work! After 7 days of wearing flowy summer whites and breezy one pieces it surely is nice to be able to wear my favorite silk blouse, tweed bottoms, and tall leather boots. I’m such a homebody at heart that its so hard to keep me away from LA for too long.

I can already’s going to be an  intensely busy week with lots of catching up to do! I announced it on my Twitter & Facebook last week, but I recently have taken on the position as the fashion director of GENLUX magazine ( a luxury LA based magazine). As some of you guys know Ive been working as a freelance stylist for the past 3 years, and for a prestigious magazine to recognize my hard work, passion, & talent and to bring me on as their Style & Fashion director is truly an honor. I also have some exciting projects brewing in the mix of things that I cannot reveal quite yet!

Mondays are when dreams come to life…a new week, a new day, a new start to strive for what you love! “If you dont have some time to dream, then you never have a vision” HAPPY MONDAY!!

Another Typical Day…

posted by on 2011.08.31, under Behind the Scenes

This was taken behind the scenes at our recent shoot for the holiday issue of GENLUX magazine! I styled the model in this beautiful Givenchy ivory blouse  with a pair of Burberry silk satin pants, and belted with a thick Burberry belt. I cannot wait til this issue comes out in stores and not to mention i will also be styling the cover of the holiday issue for GENLUX magazine this coming Friday!

Heres how a typical day and a typical outfit looks like for me while working on set. Scalloped shorts- to tan my pasty white legs, Bright colored scarf- to jazz up a simple outfit & also to protect my chest & shoulder from the sun, & of course a wide brimmed hat- to protect my skin from the damaging rays!

It’s all about functionality and comfort at it’s best. What’s YOUR everyday “Go -to look?”

Chicken Pot Pie, Anyone?

posted by on 2011.08.16, under Editorials

As you guys know I live with my sister Eye It Try It, a food blogger, AND I have a fiance who has an avid passion for cooking…in other words I have become quite dependent, and ummm nonetheless VERY spoiled when it comes to eating.

So….. recently I got the chance to style Laura Dunn in her beautiful home for GENLUX magazine. We took a comedic approach to this editorial by showing how overrated cooking can be. From the burnt pot pies, to eating desert for dinner, Flipping burnt pancakes in her 6 in. Versace heels, and of course heating up a chicken with a fire distinguisher.

Fortunately & unfortunately I was slightly able to relate to this editorial! But I am determined to learn how to cook…soon! Nevertheless we had a blast styling this shoot!!!You can find this editorial on stands now in the fall issue of GENLUX magazine.

With that said…Chicken Pot Pie, Anyone?

Not Your Humble Little Abode

posted by on 2011.08.12, under Behind the Scenes

Recently I got the honor of styling the former President Vicente Fox and his wife Dona Marta Fox. Working with them made me realize how humbly & gratefully we all ought to live .

Speaking of living humbly…this estate, as you can see, is definitely not your humble little abode. (FYI this is NOT the president’s estate but a random location we shot at) As a stylist I’ve been able to travel to some cool places and experience some unique things, but I can say that this estate has been the most jaw dropping & ridiculous location I’ve ever been to. After spending a whole day  with a venetian theatre , hidden Moroccan spa, endless hallways, and secret gardens…I have to admit it was quite hard to snap back into reality.

Just wanted to share my magical experience with you all! The editorial of President Fox will be featured in the holiday issue of GENLUX magazine.



P.S You know I’ve had one hell of a day when I bust out my samurai hair -do. Please dont mind my crazy samurai bun…this is actually how I look like when I work…not so glamorous ey?

On The Day Of….

On The Day Of a Shoot.

Before dashing out the door at the break of dawn to arrive on set on time with a latte in one hand and a rack of clothes in the other…a very favorite way to wear my hair these days is under this black leather rimmed hat. ONE.. my hair is growing at a crazy fast pace that is quite untamable at the moment and TWO to protect my skin from basking in the summer sun for  9 hours.

Leather pencil skirts, Cashmere belted coats, sleek wool pantsuits, and powdery suede boots has been the name of the game for the past couple of Fall/Winter shoots we have been styling. Can we say these pieces are utterly perfect for the transition from the hazy summer evenings to crisp autumn mornings?

As much as I love the long days of summer I prefer Fall/winter fashion over spring/summer. It gives me room to be more creative with layers! How about you? Do you guys prefer Summer fashion or Fall fashion?



And In The Stillness Of The Night

And Another sleepless night…

Long nights of prepping for our editorial shoot with Genlux magazine next week. I always find myself moodboarding things out in the stillness of a very late night. Thats when most of my inspirations come to me. Here are some of our style inspiration we put together thus far….can you take a guess what the theme/ style direction might be?
