There’s something about wearing red. Red is sultry. Red is vibrant. Red is a personality, not a color. Red is the embodiment of confidence, elegance, and daringness. These were all things I thought about and felt as I walked as demurely as one can in heels across a boardwalk of uneven wood with holes between, […]

Annotations

Sometimes, I dream about my life being an LA version of a Jane Austen novel with golden-edged pages. Recently it’s been more like a heavily annotated, weathered copy of a Jane Austen novel. When I say heavily annotated, I mean by myself. I’ve been doing a lot of self reflection lately, as my life has […]

Redefining the “Beach Body”

My mind and my heart belong to the past, and ironically, my body shape reflects that. I have a 1950s body that may not fit the context of today, but I don’t see it as outdated.   I love my curves, and the unique way they take shape to clothing. Yes, my shape may not […]

Monochromatic for the Maximalist

For whatever reason, I’ve had a new color–or lack thereof–obsession this season: beige. The muted color is quite overlooked at times, but I can assure you that wearing it will not make you fall flat. In fact, the skin-toned hue is the perfect clothing staple for emulating natural beauty and provides the perfect opportunity for […]

High & Low Fashion For Fall

The black whole of academia, consumed with law papers, journalistic video packages, grad school apps–even medieval manuscripts has officially swallowed me whole. While I enjoy all of these scholarly activities, fashion is quite a necessarily retreat to stay inspired. My fashion therapy sessions have included curating my fall fashion closet. The key to a successful […]

Krischic’s Guide to French Country Style

In the midst of a Malibu heatwave, my mind drifts back to the vineyard landscape of Napa at the height of summer. The heat was dry rather than humid, and the sun cascaded over the grape leaves rather than the ocean. While a seaside scene is hard to beat, there is a hidden beauty to […]

Commes [des Garçons] with me to the MET’s Costume Institute

Since the genesis of my fashion affinity, I’ve dreamed of attending the Met Gala–of paying tribute to the designer or theme of the night–turning into, quite frankly animated art. Fashion is an art form in and of itself, one whose wearer brings it to life. It becomes a part of the person and the person […]

Stepped inside a fairytale, a 10 year old medieval castle made of breathtaking stonework…filled with colorful medieval frescoes depicting age of old–kings, knights, noble crests. I was imaginitively raptured to a century where lords and ladies sat around a table and drank their wine from goblets while drinking in the melodies of minstrels–the setting of […]

Serving you up some 20th century Hollywood glam for my 21st birthday! Always having an affinity for the silver screen’s golden age, I decided to channel my inner vintage starlet for my birthday dinner. I traded in the red carpet of Hollywood for the red carpet on the Napa Valley Wine Train, an Edwardian dream […]

Parisian Chic Beachwear

The T-shirt and shorts combo is practically a uniform at the beach for a California native—other than a swimsuit of course. Well, I have been a Californian my whole life, and I break the style rules all the time. In terms of fashion, I don’t mind being as rebellious as a schoolgirl, modifying the constraints […]
