ON WATCH // Faux Fur Coats & Vests

Source from top left: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
My living room looks like I've had a pack of wild wolves sleeping in it lately. This past weekend, I decided to make my nest a bit more cozy and sewed a few pillows with amazing grey/black long furred fabric. Lesson learned, I shouldn't cut it on carpet. I think I'm still finding clumps under and between my couch. However, with the two or three pillows complete, I have a major crush on my bed. Can I stay in there forever? Not only is faux fur a great (and cruelty-free) way to add some luxe to your home, but I love seeing the plethora of coats in unconventional colors coming out to add to your wardrobe. I missed out on the Scotch & Soda and the Oui Odile pastel coats (pictured above), however I know there are definitely others I can snag for my closet (see similar styles here: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4)... Call me Chewbacca, I don't care, I love these things.

What do you think of this [technicolor] faux fur trend?

IN REVIEW // Exploring LA



This week kicked off with exploring Hillsong LA's "Heart & Soul" night. It was a pretty legit service and I'm stoked to have been a part of it. / Finally got my bicycle up and running so I'll be riding to work the majority of the time. / Friday was my friend, Josh's, birthday and I celebrate with him and a few friends in HB. / Saturday was filled with explorations with my friend, Pretty Moon at Deus Ex Machina on Venice and Palos Verdes. Thanks to O'Neill Women for the surf leggings. It's still too cold to try them out in the water, but I'll try SUP or yoga in them. / I went on a craft binge this weekend and made 3 faux fur pillows and this suede clutch. I'm thinking of trying to make these and selling them... thoughts?

County Line Surfing // 35mm Film



A few weeks back, I went to county line, we were finally get some waves after a long dry spell in Southern California. The waves were slow, heavy and emerging from the west's rain and fog. The drought in California has become infamous, so the rain was a welcome change. I took my Canon AE-1 and show some black and white film. My old lab in the Marina got closed so I tried out Richard Photo Lab in the Hollywood area. It's about $18-22 a roll and in the end was pretty similar in cost to my old lab. I was pretty pleased with the service and I loved the photos that came out. The black and white film evoked the groggy and fog-filled scene rather perfectly. Check out the 35mm film photos below:

IN REVIEW // Shoots, San O & Posing Games



This week was a doozy. Seriously, I had so many ups and downs I was getting a little dizzy. The week started off right with a few photo shoots behind and in front of the camera. My friend, Pretty Moon, and I went down to San O and hung out on the beach, surfed and painted with watercolors. She has serious posing game, don't mess with her! San Onofre is definitely my happy place with its bamboo/palm hideaways and old California hippie vibe. Plus, the clothes line there is way more appealing to look at than hanging my poor suit to dry in the shower!
