Veuve Clicquot Polo Game

Veuve Clicquot Polo Game Bow ties, fedoras, big hats, florals, pastels, and endless bottles of champagne everywhere you turned. This past Saturday meant only one thing-- the annual Veuve Clicquot polo game at Will Rogers Park. As a newbie to the polo scene, I was overwhelmed with amazing fashion, friendly faces, and a scene like no other. Everyone there was definitely dressed to impress enjoying a nice leisure day in LA with weather that couldn't be anymore amazing for a polo game. Lying on the grass in obviously none other than our matching Veuve Clicquot bright yellow blankets, fans, and umbrellas and chatting with friends new and old, I couldn't think of a more perfect way to spend a Saturday.

The Hat Chronicles

Last week I did a little midweek Vegas vaykay to do a visit to the MAGIC convention which is the annual fashion convention in Las Vegas. Not really sure what I was signing myself up for, I was thoroughly happy to be welcomed to booths and booths and booths of amazing brands. A girl's heaven if you ask me-- that place was every fashion lover's dream since it was practically a one-stop shopping excursion. Knowing I had to dress to impress because everyone around me was going to be stepping up their ensemble games, I chose to wear a simple high to low top, black shorts and combat boots. But what the key ingredient was that really perfected the whole look was actually my hat. All of a sudden kind of becoming a recent huge obsessor of hats (possibly preferring them more than headbands for the fall?!), this simple add on is what made me look like I was MAGIC ready.

Behind The Lens

With every great model comes a great photographer; someone who sees the beauty the way you do, has a vision like you do, and understands the importance of detail, colors, and lighting. Today's inspiration is a unique one for me as this is the first time the roles are being reversed and Sara is for once being MY model, stepping away from behind the camera and taking the spotlight in front. Working backstage at some of the biggest and best events and runways during New York Fashion Week, Sara is already making a name for herself both as a photographer and in the fashion world. With every blog post I create and every shoot I take, I pay homage to Sara, remembering just a few years ago when she was my very first fashion photographer and when our simple hangout sessions would turn into photo shoot sessions--coming up with concepts, outfits, themes and stylings to fulfill every shot and look. And what's best about Sara's aspirations to being an elitist fashion photographer? She has an amazing style of her own. Simple yet sophisticated, fashionable yet to the point, Sara knows how to put outfits together to look aesthetically pleasing to the eye in real life and in pictures. Loving to tell stories with every shoot, outfit, theme, lighting, and trend, Sara's story is never-ending, her pictures are always stunning, and vision always breathtaking. Believing in your dreams and following the path you know you belong in is what I'm all about and always wholeheartedly preach. Seeing Sara going against the grain and doing what she loves is not just an inspiration to me, but should be so to many. And soon enough, I'll be having to take a number because every great model will be coming up to Sara asking her to make hangout sessions to photo shoot sessions.
