The other day I was walking aimlessly around Downtown Los Angeles and I saw a colorful portrait of Andy Warhol in a window and I could hear him say to me, “Come inside.”  Being a huge fan of The Factory and Warhol’s work I had to check it out. I walked into the pop-up gallery “Kings & Queens” to stare in amazement at the mixed media artwork that stood before my eyes. Inside were photographs of Warhol taken by Karen Bystedt in 1982, combined with photographs of Jean-Michel Basquiat taken by Brad Benson in 1984. Bystedt then combined mixed media art to create some amazing pieces. The pop-up gallery is open until April 31st, and if you’re a fan ofRead More →

One of my favorite things about spring aside from the longer days and warmer weather is putting my dark, big and bulky winterish clothing—(I live in LA), in the back of my closet, and putting my light and colorful wardrobe front and center. This is also a perfect time to decide what you no longer want (that’s a whole other topic), but more importantly what you need. Inspired by NYFW Spring 2017, vibrant stripes, trench coats, slogans and graphics, shoulder details, sportswear, seaside stripes and nautical inspired, nudes and tans, floral prints, iridescence, and bright and pastel solid colors are what you’ll be seeing a lotRead More →

I have a love-hate relationship with moving. It’s something I’ve done many times and while I love moving into a new space, the process of boxing up everything I own isn’t something I particularly enjoy. I wish I could fast-forward that part and go straight to decorating. Me and my boyfriend’s lease was about to be up and we were outgrowing our current apartment, but instead of searching for a new building, we opted to stay in the same and go from the 7th floor to the 15th with panoramic view of DTLA. I’m obsessed! Last weekend we packed up all our things and asked our friendRead More →
