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

Welcome back! With Labor Day being just a few weeks away (summer it's always sad to see you go), I've dedicated this post to one of my favorite color combos- Red, White, and Blue (obviously). Looking for a little style inspo for a long weekend full of barbeques, wine, and maybe even some boating? Look no further. Here are a couple of looks to take you from the beach to a back yard party in no time. With both looks I am wearing flats but to go from casual day-party to night-party just add some booties or a chic wedge sandal! The blazer and/or sweater is also great to keep you warm when the sun sets and it gets a little chilly.

These skinny crops I have been living in-literally. I've had to make a conscious effort to not wear them everyday as they are so comfortable but cute! They are the perfect option to wear with a look like this or they can be dressed up with a heel or booties.

These heart shaped sunglasses I simply purchased right off the boardwalk for $10 dollars.

On a final and more serious note, the world lost a great artist and creative genius yesterday. As a fellow native Northern Californian who grew up watching his films I was deeply saddened to hear of this news yesterday. Whether it's fashion or film, all arts are intrinsically linked and the artistic community is at a deep loss without him. With that I leave you with this photo of Robin Williams, rest in peace my friend.
