Fourth of July x Legally Blonde and Brunette
fourthofjulythestylesaucejpg1

Happy Summer!!!! I'm super excited about the next few posts which are going to be dedicated entirely to Fourth of July fashion. I've teamed up with a great friend of mine, Shelley Buckner of Legally Blonde and Brunette .

Basically this shoot was no fun at all ;). The whole idea was to actually reenact what an epic 4th of July would be like- from drinking Moet on a sailboat to playing with fireworks on the beach! For clothes we (obviously) kept to a red, white, and blue theme and wanted it to be actual looks we would wear while lounging on a boat, playing on a dock, or going to a BBQ. While I live on the beach, 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays and is always the welcoming of Summer. We had a really good time shooting this and putting tons of fun patriotic looks together for you. I hope my 4th of July is ACTUALLY as fun as this shoot was! Thanks Shelley for being a part of it and can't wait to share the rest of the looks from Part 2 with you tomorrow! 

How will you all be celebrating America's birthday? Leave a comment and let me know!

Erika at Disgraceland

Hellllllloooo!!!! After quite a hiatus it feels good to be back with an all new layout and tons of new content on the way. I'm going to start featuring more of my styling work on here under " Styled by Me ". Recently I had the pleasure of styling the beautiful Erika Myrvik with Next Models for a shoot with the uber talented photographer Emily Winiker. I've basically been Instagram stalking Emily, and while she is a photographer out of New York- I was hoping one day we'd get to work together. In her recent trip out to California I was delighted when she contacted me and asked me to style this Nordic looking beauty Erika. The location was an amazing old retro house in Venice.

About the house-- picture The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, meets a Coachella camp ground, meets an old antiques store and that's the location for this shoot. There is all sorts of cool art work and old stuff littered around the yard of this place which makes it a perfect back drop for shoots. There's also an awesome pool we took a few shots with that made for some great lighting. 

For this shoot in particular Emily wanted me to pull lots of 70's casual inspired outfits (which was easy and fun considering EVERYTHING is 70's right now on the runways). I mixed vintage pieces on the model with some newer ones from Free People, Topshop, and Hudson jeans-- you can shop some of the looks in the gallery at the end of this post. We also had a great makeup artist- Lindsey J- who made Erika's skin glow in such a natural and pretty way. I'm really excited about how the images came out and to share them with you! Check them out- xo, The Style Sauce

Think Pink

Being it is October, which just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decidedly shot this pretty in pink look with photographer Michele Andersen. With pastels being all the rage for fall this year, and pink always being one of my favorite colors anyhow, this post made perfect sense to put together. Knowing many who have either died or battled with cancer, it is a subject for me that hits close to home.  For that reason I raised money and rode in Cycle for Survival last year, and I plan on wearing pink ALL October.

That being said, one of my favorite things to do is mix and match masculine and feminine pieces. For this particular post I mixed this cotton candy pink jacket I bought from Zara last year with an 80's vintage leather pencil skirt I found at the Melrose Trading Post for just $25 dollars. For additional urban effect I paired the look with the most perfect leather booties I have found all season from Stuart Weitzman and my new favorite Rebecca Minkoff backpack. This fierce little backpack is not only super versatile, but when purchased at Bloomingdale's (which is where I purchased mine) in the month of October, gives back to breast cancer as well. I love fashion for a good cause. Check out the full look below. Oh, and F Cancer !!
