OUTFIT | downtown streets of LA

My two-week vacation in California is slowly, yet quickly coming to a close. After going to eggslut with my brother the other day, we found some cool graffiti walls and fences in the industrial district of downtown LA and he was cool enough to snap these photos for me. I was very pleased with his … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | Knit Dress + Vans

I always love a simple outfit, especially when it only consists of two items + accessories. I picked up this knit dress from Madewell last week. The day I took these near Sawtelle, it was warm enough to wear it by itself, but I’ve worn it with black skinnies on colder days (I’d rather not … Continue Reading

The Line Hotel, LA

While my friend Amy was in SoCal with me, she decided to spend a night at the trendy Line Hotel in LA. It was such a chic little hotel! The lounge & bar area was spacious and clean, and as you can sort of tell, we loved the sofas. It’s a little lonely without Amy … Continue Reading

On to Melrose

It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve stopped by Melrose and it feels great to be back. After having lunch with my brother at Umami Burger, we went to Freak Chic Piercings & Tattoos because I’ve been wanting another piercing (I have 10 now… yes I’m addicted). Thanks to my brother, I finally have photos … Continue Reading

SoCal, I’m back

My first few days back in Southern California mainly consisted of good food and reuniting with my favorite people – photo shooting in L.A., lunch with my brother, hotpot dinner at Boiling Point with friends, Bruxie’s waffle sandwiches with my best friend of 10 years, shaved ice, boba, and the night view from the 405. … Continue Reading

Griffith Observatory

Yesterday, my friend and I decided to drive up to the Griffith Observatory in LA to see what it was all about. We didn’t realize we parked my car at the bottom of the hill and that we had an approximately 3 mile hike ahead of us. It was tiring, but the view from above was … Continue Reading

A taste of Paris

My boyfriend had been wanting to check out the French bakery near my place, so I agreed to go with him today. And it turns out to be one of the most adorable and delicious bakeries I’ve been to. With so many cakes, macaroons, pastries and cookies to choose from, it was so hard to … Continue Reading

concept fashion week

Photos of the 2012 fall collections from LA Concept Fashion Week. I had the honor of modeling for Elaine Marie Style again for her installment at the Ace Gallery. The photo above says it all – her fall line is a mix of British grunge style from the 70s with some 60s flare.  I didn’t … Continue Reading

Robertson Blvd.

Today, I had the pleasure of working with Japanese model Melody Yoko. She is visiting LA to shoot a TV show episode that airs in Japan to promote a boutique called Beckley. Apparently, she produced a watch that is supposed to be sold there. (from left to right: Alissa, Mizuki, Melody, and me) She’s one … Continue Reading

Rimo clothing boutique

Today, I would like to introduce one of my favorite boutiques in LA, Rimo. It’s located on Sawtelle Blvd in Little Osaka. I love coming here because they always have something cute that I’ll like. ( I ended up purchasing the black card case above!) I talked to Sara from Rimo, and she recommends the … Continue Reading
