I’m back from my slight blogging hiatus, and I’m ready to get back into the game. In my last post, I mentioned that I was visiting my hometown in California, and also traveling to New York and Texas, all in just 12 days. To be completely honest, it was not enough time at all to do everything I wanted, and there were so many people I wanted to see – but as always, the rest will have to wait ’til next time.
This time around, I was determined to meet with as many photographers in the area as I could to add a little more California vibes to my blog content. These were taken by the amazing Jennifer in a parking lot behind a Vietnamese restaurant in Chinatown. By mere coincidence, the red on my T-shirt matched the red of these awesome New York alleyway-inspired stairs. The glow from the 5 o’clock sunset worked beautifully in our favor, and we shot these in the span of maybe 15 minutes (my photo shoots are quick!).
I’ve recently been a huge fan of wearing oversized clothing, especially T-shirts and sweaters. One of my DJ friends happens to be a designer for a street wear label called Untitled Club, and the image on this particular T-shirt is the same as the poster for my first DJ gig. Yep, he basically offered me my first gig as a DJ, so of course I had to get the T-shirt! I thought if I got it in XL, I could wear it as a T-shirt dress, balanced out with over-the-knee boots so as to not show too much skin but just enough. And this intensely studded denim bag from DressCamp is my absolute favorite. It’s edgy, sturdy and fits everything I need which makes it a perfect traveling partner. I usually steer towards monotone colors like black or navy, but I decided to try this light-wash denim color and I ended up getting so many compliments on it. It’s always good to change it up and try something different.
My next post will be about my New York trip, so stay tuned! Thanks always for the love<3

You always look so fierce in your photos! I’m glad you are trying to reach out to more photographers and these pictures look amazing! I am also a huge fans of oversized tshirts 🙂 can’t wait to read about your NTC adventures!
I’m so glad you had a nice trip (however short it may have been). I loved seeing some of the shots on Instagram, but seeing this whole post is just so cool. I love the grungy feel of both the outfit and the photos!!! I can’t wait to see and hear even more from your time in Cali!!

I am surprised that you had time to shoot at all! It always goes by so fast whenever I go back home, there never seems to be enough time. Time with family and friends, it all just rushes by and I always end up thinking, I will do this or that next time.
Love the leggy look! The oversized t-shirt with boots is so hot. And it’s always fun to work with new photographers to see what type of perspective they’ll bring. Amazing photos and modeling as always!
excellent points altogether, you simply gained a new reader. What would you suggest about your post that you made some days ago? Any positive?
You have such an edgy look I always admire! I love these kind of shoots, in alleyway, capturing the essence of a place! My shoots are usually quick too especially when it’s minus 12 degrees outside! haha
Love the oversized look too! Can’t wait to see photos of your NYC adventures!
Omg, your style is something I ned to think of. Super unique and absolutely wonderful!
Wow these photos are so cool! Love the result dear!

omg i love this photoshoot! perfect!!!
Amazing. You look so feminine, and your accessories even though they are so sharp and dark. You are like a dark diva straight out of a comic book. Very awe-inspiring.
Of course your photo shoots are quick as that’s what pro models are good at, not surprised at all! 🙂 And 12 days with those 3 places to visit really isn’t enough so I can understand that you didn’t have time to do all the things you had planned to, but there will be more times to catch up with people and things. I love the photo shoot as such and how the red matches with your outfit too! 🙂
You look so lovely! 😀

Can I have your entire closet? This look is amazing and love how you used the fishnets!! That bag is super cute too!
The photos are stunning ! This photographer did an absolute great job and as always you look simply wonderful.
I love loose tshirts too but don’t really know how to pull it off without looking too small or like I just jumped out of bed.
Hope you a great time visiting your home town.
Wow you look so fierce. Love the bag, too.
I love photo shoots near Chinatown, it seems to be a good spot for street style. I love how edgy and sexy your outfit is.
that studded bag is so so fun! love this edgy look — fits well in the back streets of la for sure 🙂 xo, sharon
I love your edgy outfit!
The boots are so cute. 🙂
Wow I love this look so much in you! You always seem to pull of just about any look! So beautiful and loving the vibe of these photos! They are so great love!
Jennifer captured you so well! She really knows how to make sure your best features pop the screen off.
I’m in love with the edgy vibe also and I think this outfit is ah-ma-zing.

And that Bag… ahhhh my Fav:) Love it sooo much:)
I love how you guys were able to find such a cool location that matched your outfit seamlessly. I also have a hard time looking for locations, but like you, my photoshoots are always pretty short. I love the spiked handbag and the casual glam look!
I deary love your style babe! I hope we can feature you in our next issue! U are so badass!
Oh no! DId you already leave Cali?? Would have loved to meet with you! Please let me know if youre still here 🙂
I’m already back in Japan 🙁 but I would have loved to meet you too!! There were a lot of bloggers I wanted to meet but didn’t have time but next time for sure<3
Like yourself, I always try to meet with a photographer in whatever city I’m visiting. It takes a huge workload off me and I don’t have to worry about transferring photos, editing, etc. You sure did a lot of traveling in 12 days. Slow down girl 🙂
Nice edgy street style outfit. The tee and studded bag are perfect. I hope the visit was great! You always have time on another visit to see and do more. 🙂
I never get tired of saying that your pictures must been feature in a magazine.
You have such an edgy and different look from many girls and you are absolutely stunning that people will enjoy seeing you.
Really obsess with your style and pics Sam!
Have a great day!
These shots are so cool! Love how gritty it is!
I love this outfit so much!! these photographs are so artsy and beautiful!!1 Xx, Gina
You have a killer style and I’m a big fan. That bag is so cute, I need it!.
Whoa your photoshoots are super quick! I love how the red railing matched your outfit. My photographer is super picky about backdrops, lighting and angles so it takes us longer than 15min… Definitely digging the oversized look too!
Amazing pics and love your oversized studded bag!
This is such a gorgeous photo shoot! You look so fierce babe! Your tee is so cool. I love that it has personal significance to you which makes it even cooler.
Such a killer look and the location could not have been more perfect for this fantastic outfit. I Am in love with that hat and this edgy tee is well styled with the nude fishnets. I’ve seen so many black fishnets and love that you went with the nude. You always inspire me with your editorial shots. I hope you had an amazing trip! Xoxo, Christine
Come again soon to Cali next time and let’s definitely meet then. 🙂 I hope you at least had lots of fun during your time here and the photos you took were so lovely.
