WHAT DO YOU DO?

I’m a graphic designer and photographer.

 

WHY DID YOU PICK THIS OUTFIT?

On the pink and yellow dress: I love collecting vintage pieces for my wardrobe and this one just happens to have a great story. This dress belonged to my mother when she was a young girl in a tiny town in Tennessee. It was a gift from her boyfriend after he moved to California and it was, without a doubt, the most stylish piece of clothing she owned. I love the cut and graphic pattern of the dress, but mostly I love to wear it and think of her.

 

WHAT DOES THIS OUTFIT SAY ABOUT YOU?

Playful & bold: two things that I find throughout my own body of work.

 

WHERE DID THE PIECES COME FROM?

The retro dress came from somewhere in California, circa 1965.

 

ANY BEAUTY TIPS OR TRICKS?

I swear by Arbonne’s RE9 Advanced skincare line. That’s about it!
