STYLE CRUSH: MAJA WYH

Screen shot 2014-11-07 at 10.49.19 AM

It’s not that often I get a girl crush, but when I recently discovered German blogger Maja Wyh, I was smitten. Not only is this lady stunningly gorgeous and fresh as a daisy, her skill in odd-ball layering is some of the most sophisticated and chic style I have seen in awhile. I’m obsessed with every single look she puts together and oogle at her ability to layer up to 7 different proportions of clothing on her body at once-this is a serious skillset.

PROJECT: BAUBLE BAR FOR LEUKEMIA/LYMPHOMA SOCIETY

Screen shot 2014-10-22 at 12.40.10 PM

Right before I moved to New Orleans I worked on a styling job that was pretty special so I wanted to share it with you. Bauble Bar is an online jewelry and accessory company from NYC that came to Austin, TX to shoot a special friend of the company for their “Guest Bartender” story that they feature monthly. For this special series they chose Megan Runser as their guest bartender, a beautiful woman fighting Leukemia who got in touch with the company to express her dream of being a Guest Bartender on their website. Megan reached out to Bauble Bar never thinking that her dream would actually come true. Well, this life-threatening cancer had hit one of the owners close to home, so the company decided to make Megan’s dream come true.

SOUND: HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF

Screen shot 2014-10-20 at 11.58.29 AM

This past weekend I went to a free event (most live music is free in this town btw) to see a band I discovered this summer at SXSJ in Austin, Hurray for the Riff Raff. The event featured several New Orleans artists and musicians and The Joy theater was packed full of the Riff Raff’s local fan base. They’ve been out on tour promoting their new album, Small Town Heroes, and were thrilled to be back in Nola performing for their crowd. I wanted to share their music with you as their sound is very unique and their story of success lies in the heart of what New Orleans is all about. Lead singer, Alynda Lee Segarra started the band in New Orleans and is aiming to leave a hefty mark on the Americana folk music scene. She makes her music for the riff raff, the underdogs and says, “We really feel at home with a lot of worlds of people that don’t really seem to fit together, and we find a way to make them all hang out with our music. Whether it’s the queer community or some freight train-riding kids or some older guys who love classic country, a lot of folks feel like mainstream culture isn’t directed at them. We’re for those people.”

For those of you that know me personally, you already know that I am a big fan of Justin Townes Earle. Have been for years. I’ve probably seen him now live around six times and recently drove all the way to Nashville to see him open for Dwight Yoakam. I have been waiting for another album for a few years now and am thrilled at his new album release today, Single Mothers.

KARLIE KLOSS DOES KOWBOY HATS RIGHT

Screen shot 2014-08-27 at 4.04.42 PM

Living in Texas, I’ve become very accustomed to seeing people in cowboy and western clothes and its exciting for me to now see so much of this look in fashion right now. I knew the minute that I saw Chanel’s Resort show in Dallas this year that western fashions would be all over the Fall 2014 editorials. To no surprise, they are everywhere.

FOLLOW THEIR LEAD: DSTLD JEANS CATERS TO THEIR CUSTOMER

Screen shot 2014-08-06 at 10.58.11 AM

I’m currently working on a project that has me researching online stores and new brands and I had a great discovery in DSTLD Jeans last week that really verified this constant conversation that I have been having with myself for the past year. DSTLD is a contemporary denim brand that is selling jeans in a direct channel to their customer base without depending on the usual retail channels. Their strategy is direct to consumer and because of this, they are able to keep their prices low and build a trusting relationship with their customer base.

Last month I worked with Reissued, an amazing new curated social marketplace application, on an Austin shopping guide for a feature on their website and shopping marketplace. Reissued is an app that allows curators to buy and sell vintage, one- of- a- kind, handmade and hard-to-find items. I spent two days with their director of sales visiting my favorite spots and picking out unique items from each store to feature.

I FINALLY MADE IT TO GRACELAND

I love the modern design and the accents of skulls throughout

I went on a last minute road trip to Nashville last weekend and made a pit stop in Memphis so that I could finally take a walk thru Graceland where Elvis Presley lived until his death. I was surprised to learn that he bought the estate at 22 especially when I saw the design aesthetic of the place.

Since my move to Texas I’ve been working with Austin’s Feathers Boutique on many different levels including merchandising direction, social media, styling and brand strategy. For the last few months we have been working hard on their e-commerce website and giving it a different look. I created the style for the shoot incorporating pieces from co-owner Emily Hoover’s amazing closet as well as my personal collection and vintage items from the store. I’m very happy with how it turned out and I wanted to share it with you.

SOUND: THRONE “THARSIS SLEEPS”

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 11.26.24 AM

Most that know me are aware that I am not the biggest Heavy Metal fan when it comes to music. Don’t get me wrong, I love to rock out, but not as much to the heavier stuff. However, in the case of this video produced and directed by Nicos Livesy for the band Throne, I am wildly inspired.
