a fresh start


With three weeks left in Los Angeles, it's now becoming crunch time for me. I'm tying up loose ends, figuring out school graduation stuff, preparing my car for the cross-country exodus, selling all of my earthly possessions, and watching my loft slowly empty out. Bittersweet, for sure, but incredibly liberating. I'm looking forward to venturing out on a daunting road trip to my new home with almost nothing to my name--it sounds so cathartic. Have you done a road trip in the States before? What were your favorite places to hit?

video: in my drawers with playboy


Everyone knows me for my bondage-influenced fashion tastes. But what really inspired it all? I believe so firmly that fashion is nothing without function, whatever function that may be.

Playboy has a new video series, In My Drawers, which showcases the lingerie drawers of influential women to get more "intimate" (in every sense of the word) and be better acquainted with them.

Take a peek into my lingerie wardrobe and see how I styled something borne out of necessity.

missguided #litinthevalley


Coachillin' with Missguided. 

This year's Coachella found me completely decked out in Missguided all three days of the festival. I repped their threads, I shot with them at their Palm Springs HQ, and I partied with them at their Coachella rager with Galore Mag. What a weekend.

To keep the party going, I've curated my favorite picks from Missguided's festival collection, along with a v lit Spotify playlist. Stay tuned for my feature + Q&A on Missguided next week.

Coachella came and went too quickly. I cannot wait for the next festival!

summer dressing


Wedding dress-pretty and yet wearable enough for the city, For Love & Lemons does it again.

Their intricate embroidery and sultry, sheer details make these very feminine dresses wearable even for someone like me. I styled this beauty with my favorite moto and hat and some flat boots, along with a color-coordinated paper bag-esque leather satchel. The casual leather details make all the difference. I can totally see this dress becoming a summer staple--picnics, yacht rides, festivals, road trips, you name it!

Speaking of road trips, I had the most fantastic time in New Mexico with the boothang. It took us a whopping 21 hours to get there (thanks to a very-much-worth-it detour to see the Grand Canyon at sunrise), and a long 14 hours to get back to Los Angeles. The whole reason for my trip was to visit the House of Eternal Return (here's a TED Talk on Meow Wolf in general), and it did not disappoint. I'm sure your perception of my journey through the House via social media felt disjointed and scattered (in all honesty, that was my IRL experience as well), but I've filmed a lot of it to share with you guys. Yes, I'm finally getting back on the 'Tube, and I promise it this time!!! Blogs are awesome, but they can feel a little flat and one-dimensional at times. I want you to see me in all my awkward glory. Stay tuned.

26


It's this creature's birthday weekend! 

Gone are the years when I'd extensively plan a huge rager to celebrate another year. Nowadays, this girl just wants to travel and chill with a few good friends.

26 finds me hightailin' it out of California on a roadtrip through Arizona and New Mexico, to get to Santa Fe for this. It'll be a quiet weekend with just my love and me, and then I return to have a nice birthday dinner with my best pals in Los Angeles. I'll be shooting, filming, Instagramming, Snapchatting, everything-ing the festivities, so follow along on my socials!

This is also a good time as any to make a big announcement: I'm moving to NYC! I'll still be bicoastal, but instead of living in Los Angeles and visiting New York once or twice a month, I'll be living in New York and visiting Los Angeles once or twice a month. This is what I've dreamt about and worked towards for the last couple years, and I have to pinch myself to believe it's all coming true. I found the perfect apartment in Brooklyn, signed the lease, and my move-in date is literally on my birthday, May 1st (although I won't be officially moved in until I finish school in mid-May and my DTLA loft's lease ends in mid-June). This is the best birthday present I could give myself.

Thanks for ringing in another wonderful year with me! xoxo
