Oh, isn't this how it goes in wonderful Los Angeles? One thing leads to another and all of the sudden you're sitting at Dinosaur Coffee with stylist Sissy Saint-Marie and she's asking you to assist her on a job in two days. That day comes and it is creative and passionate and everything you could want out of a styling job. This being my first time working on an editorial shoot, I was able to learn so much about the process of creative styling, visual communication, and imagery. It is such a beautiful, collective group of people down here... what am I going to do when I leave?
After a particularly rough past year, I was given the opportunity to intern in Los Angeles for the summer. Not only did this provide me with an escape from the harsh reality that was my life in San Francisco, but it also was the first step towards something I was truly passionate about (styling, fashion, art). Between you and me, I have always been incredibly drawn to LA. Maybe it was the Hollywood glamour I was after, or maybe just the sun. Even though I only got a couple friends down here and am staying in quite the odd house, this place already it feels like home.
I only get 4 more weeks here so let's make the most of it.
