Rancho Santa Fe 4/19/15

One of the most magical places in Southern California, has to be the secret allure of Rancho Santa Fe-where there are beautiful golden overgrown fields, horse stables sitting upon hills overlooking sapphire blue ocean, never-ending citrus groves…I just get lost here. Today, I went out to brunch with my mom, and we decided to take some pictures by one of my favorite empty fields. In the Spring and Summer you’ll always find me wearing a maxi dress-whether I’m at the beach, or running around the city, they will always work for my hectic “always on the go” schedule!

Love,

Lauren

P.S. *Remember accessories are key if you want to change your look from day to night-If you want to take your day dress into the night, add subtle chic metallics(shoes or clutch) and add a simple (light) smokey eye.

Hey guys!

What to say about this outfit…well, lets just put it this way, if you want to be stylish but warm at the same time, go with a knit maxi dress! The Creatures one I am wearing kept me so warm at Venice Beach the other day(and I am always cold). So this definitely passed the fashion and functionality test! Don’t ya just love when that happens?!

Love,

Lauren

P.S. Try to base your outfit around a photo that inspires you. I was sifting through my old inspo photos, and I came across a photo of an abundance of pink flowers(the one pictured above)-the color influenced my outfit choice-try this sometime…you won’t believe the results you get!

Hey guys!

Can you tell I have a slight obsession with stars?! There is just something about them that I’m drawn to. I got dressed today and thought to myself…star overload?…never!

I spent the day romping around Del Mar San Diego. If you ever get a chance to make it down there, head down to Seagrove park. It is so peaceful and serene and you might even be able to catch a wedding (I’m a sucker for weddings!) 

Love,

Lauren

P.S. Try to match your outfit with an a fun accessory for a touch of rock and roll glam!

SHOP SUPER STREET interview

ALF_SUPERSTREET20141201_0001ALF_SUPERSTREET20141201_0002ALF_SUPERSTREET20141201_0003ALF_SUPERSTREET20141201_0006ALF_SUPERSTREET20141201_0005

Hey guys!

I had the privilege of interviewing a very inspiring young woman last month. Lucy Akin is the creator and owner behind one of the hottest online retailers in Los Angeles. Her site, SHOP SUPER STREET , is one of my favorite online boutiques because she always has the most unique & talented new designers like Hyein Soo and Sandy Liang. Not to mention, the site is super clean and full of eye candy that can leave you sifting endlessly through her chic (and I mean chiccc!!) collection.

Lauren: Tell us about yourself, Super Street, and how you got the ball rolling on SST?

Lucy: I have been interested in fashion pretty much my whole life. My parents would catch me lying on my back as a toddler just staring at my shoes for a couple hours a day. So it was a no-brainer for me to pursue a career in fashion. Shop Super Street first came to me when I saw a need for a mix between skateboard brands and high-fashion. Mixing the two was so prevalent within the fashion world but nothing was reflecting this need online yet. I loved brands like Huf, Odd Future, Bianca Chandon and Palace but could never find them on any women’s fashion sites. So when I was ready to pull the trigger on my own company, I reached out to my network to see who would support me. I was surprised with how much people were willing to work with me and believed in my project. And that’s how it all started…

Lauren: What do you think sets your company apart from other major retailers(online and in store)?

Lucy: I think what is special about my site is that I’m offering unexpected items on a site with very high-end brands. I’m mixing Moschino with Odd Future, which are two very different pricepoints but in my opinion they share the same message. The girl who is carrying a Moschino Barbie backpack would totally wear a sweatshirt with a big donut on it from Odd Future. She also is mixing in a Baron Von Fancy lighter or a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. Each item is super special but shares the same message across the site.

Lauren: Do you think being a buyer for Satine for several years has influenced your choice of current designers featured on SST?

Lucy: After working at Satine, I have a really great grasp on what girls are drawn to. I had the privilege of buying for a very fashionable set who shopped at Satine in Los Angeles and I understand what things they like and what brands they are after. Brands like Moschino and Rochas have a cult following and being able to represent them online with my brand mix has been great.

Lauren: What do you want people to know about Super Street?

Lucy: I really get a lot of enjoyment out of providing cool items to girls who are excited about the mix on my site. I think what I want people to know is that each item has been specially thought out and brought to the site with the hopes of someone getting it and loving it forever. It means a lot to me that so many people have found pieces from me that they made the decision to add to their wardrobes.

Thank you Lucy for taking the time to interview with us!

Okay, okay…so I have to admit, I am the epitome of a sugar addict. Yes, its true, I would choose a cake or a sugary treat over a five star meal any day…which brings me to my adventures at Magnolia Bakery on 3rd st. (West Hollywood, CA). Magnolia is originally from NYC but has graced us with it delicious presence here on the west coast. Not only does this place have THE BEST homemade banana pudding, but the most mouth watering butter cream cupcakes in the universe (I’m not even kidding).  If you’re ever in LA, this place is worth the visit!

I hope you all have a fun weekend!

Love,

Lauren

One of my favorite parts of living in Southern California, is the fact that cut-off shorts are 99.9999 percent possible all year round. Our impromptu  heat waves throw us through loops sometimes, but we can always conquer through the lightest bleached denim & wispy tops!

What is your heat wave must-haves?

So I just found my favorite new line of dresses. Dawn is produced here in Los Angeles and all of the dresses are made from 100% recycled vintage fabrics. Eco fashion at its finest for sure! Plus, they only make a limited run of each special style!

Just a quick post for today, I am off to Vegas for a couple of days to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary with my boyfriend Tommy!

Hope you all have a fantastic week!! xoxo
