It’s been a busy past few months planning all the changes that I mentioned were going to happen in 2013. The first part of the change is complete. I’m now officially based between Austin,TX and Los Angeles, CA. I’ve been MIA the past few weeks as I moved out of my apartment and took a cross country roadtrip with one of my best buddies to Texas. Words cannot describe the experience, but the pictures certainly do and I can’t wait to share the visuals with you. It was an epic journey and what I hope to be the beginning of a great new chapter in my life. I will get into more of the details on the move and the reasons behind it in future posts, but today I want to share a view into my great apartment that I called home for 6 years.
My environment has always been a huge reflection of my personal style and taste level and with my talent in merchandising, I really enjoy interior design. You know I am a collector of vintage finds and unique things for my closet, and my place is no different. I have been collecting objects, art and furniture for almost 20 years and in this Los Angeles apartment I was able to put them all together to create a unique environment that fully represents me. I take references from all over the world from Africa to Mexico and Asia, I borrow from the past and I make nods to the future making sure everything works harmoniously together to create soul and character.
As I let go of my Los Angeles digs, I look forward to creating a new environment in Austin that represents this new chapter in my life. Right now, its all about Reinvention for me. So here’s one last look at my past…can’t wait to show you my future.
Everybody always wanted to have photoshoots at my house and right before I left, I worked with my gals from Heyoka Leather on their summer 2013 lookbook in my apartment. The images by Alexandra Valenti are gorgeous and the shoot turned out fantastic with models Kelly Ash and Jenny Parry showcasing Heyoka’s best bags and jewelry for the season.
