I decided to try out the whole blow dry bar thing today. I went to Blown in Beverly Hills and I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. My hair basically looks like a more voluminous version of what it usually looks like but without straightening or curling. 

This skirt’s from the UNIF sample sale I went to last week. It was ridiculous. My roommate and I waited in line for two hours but it was definitely worth it. I snagged some awesome pieces. 

Side note: this tan I have going on is literally ombré. Gosh look at me being all inventive and trendy.

This shoot: the location, vibe and outfit was inspired by Lana Del Rey. The light leaks were all natural so we got some pretty awesome shots. These photographs have inspired me to want to purchase a Canon T3i.
I’m obsessed with this lingerie style dress. It’s delicate, simple and sexy without being too forward. And naturally, I added my quintessential gold accents. 
I bought these sunglasses to replace my Célines which I so irresponsibly misplaced. But I’m definitely in love with these as well. I’m all about the transparent sunglasses trend.

I had the pleasure of modeling for my friend’s website, She also let me bring in a few of my own looks to shoot in her studio. 
More photos to come!

Earlier today my sister texts me that she sent me a package and that I needed to go downstairs and get it because it was perishable. I take the elevator down and she’s standing right there! Pretty much gave me a mini heart attack. She drove eight hours to come surprise me since we haven’t seen each other since March. 
We decided to head to Sunset Boulevard and go to Chateau Marmont which ended up being quite disappointing. So we decided to retreat to our favorite restaurant, Fig & Olive. 

Side note: I have a strong desire to wear this t-shirt to a vegan restaurant… I wonder how that would play out.

I was lucky enough to get to see The Bling Ring premiere last night. I’d say it was a pretty good film, but I didn’t think Emma Watson did that great of a job. Plus, she looked way too old for the role.
I had the pleasure of meeting Katie Chang, who did a fabulous job in the film, and was such a sweetheart when I asked her for a photo. Claire Julien also did an awesome job and rocked a dress by Balmain. 
At one point I was standing next to Paris Hilton. And I got to meet Gwen Stefani. What is my life?

(P.S. I definitely switched into heels for the premiere…)

My friend and I found this awesome location for photos yesterday. All of them were taken on a Nikon except the last one, which was taken on my Sony, aka wanna-be DSLR. Surprisingly, I think I like my camera better…
Side note: these JC flip flops are the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever had the displeasure of wearing.

Summer in LA is more fantastic than I could imagine. 
Work is pretty difficult. Who knew it would be hard to stand up for 8 hours straight, 5 days a week? But it’s so rewarding.
