Orange for Audrey

Welcome back! Today's outfit is a little bit different for me seeing as I don't usually wear orange or leopard-- but I've never been afraid of trying new things. Hello! orange is definitely one of the biggest colors of this season seeing as the 70's have come back with a vengeance. While there are those that call leopard print a "neutral" I 100% believe it should be dressed with caution. There is a tendency to make it go a little overboard and that's never a good thing. I toned down this look with a basic trench from Topshop and flat black chelsea boots which gave the whole thing a bit of a "London Calling" feel, which is one of my favorite eras of dressing, btw.

I accessorized the look with a pair of oversized Celine sunglasses which made the whole thing very old Hollywood movie star. Someone who I consider to be my absolute favorite style icon is Audrey Hepburn- who would have turned 86 yesterday. While I didn't do this on purpose, I couldn't help but feel like Audrey in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" with those sunnies and trench on (I have seen almost all of her films). Seriously could the trench and sunnies not be on Audrey Hepburn in a 1960's film? I think so. Happy Birthday Audrey.

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
