"Style is a way to express yourself, all that matters is how you FEEL in it."
Getting dressed has always been something that I looked forward to. From picking outfits out for the entire first week of school to planning what I would wear to my first day at work the night before.
I was born in Bend, Oregon, and moved to Santa Barbara, CA mid-high school, so I guess you could say that dressing for polar opposite climates was a fun challenge — I learned how important layering is, especially as I moved to NYC to attend college at FIT.
No matter where you are, always want to make sure you feel comfortable and confident. Any dress by Eka that I put on makes me feel 100% myself. The intricate details, the sustainable linen, and the handcrafted designs are unique and functioning for everyday style.
Putting together different prints, colors, textures, and silhouettes is a form of art.
After countless internships in the Fashion and PR industry, I decided it was really time to push myself creatively to a whole new level and bought myself a film camera.
My number one tip when it comes to styling an outfit is to dress for yourself and no one else.
I love finding pieces that connect with me — pieces that feel personal. This hand-embroidered skirt by Mii with reminds me of childhood and how my mother always reminds me to stop and smell the flowers. Not only does it make me feel happy, but it is also handcrafted using 100% cotton, allowing you to move and groove.
