Fairytale Beginnings at Castle Vista

Fashion Designer Lauren Elaine shares a look at her new home, Castle Vista.

I’ve recently embarked on a new adventure. An adventure filled with inspiration, creativity, and a new outlet for my passion for design.  It’s a new adventure that definitely falls under the category of #SoMuchMoreThanOneDay, and something I hope to share with my husband and family for a long time to come. Much like a wedding,

Inspiring Parks: Pt. 1

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods…” Nothing is more inspiring than Nature.  I’ve lost hours to google,  constantly on the hunt for interesting and inspiring photoshoot locations and scenery, and beautiful new places to discover.  In February, I explored 5 national parks throughout California, ranging from prehistoric lakes to alpine forests.  I kicked

Holiday Road

Oh how I love a good road trip.  Maybe it’s the change of scenery, or maybe it’s the drawn out anticipation of the destination. When it comes to traveling, I’d happily trade a day on the road, inspired by new landscapes, for a few hours in the sky.  Road trips are not only an American

Southern California hasn’t seen rain in what feels like a year!  While Los Angeles was treated to much needed showers…in Big Bear Lake, CA, I got to experience precipitation in its most magical form–SNOW!!  I came up to the mountains a few days ago to spend Halloween and enjoy a long weekend/creative retreat after a busy October,

Fall Florals

While it may technically be Fall,  in Southern California it still feels very much like summer. And although I’m desperate to break out the plaids, faux fur, and houndstooth, I couldn’t help but gravitate towards florals when picking a dress for my cousin’s recent wedding brunch in Montecito, CA.  With temps in the 80s, the

Best Dressed: Alyssa Campanella in Monte Carlo

I’ve been so busy these past few months that I haven’t had a chance to share this stunning red carpet look from favorite muse Alyssa Campanella. Back in late May, Alyssa looked the part of a golden goddess at the 2014 Monte Carlo TV Festival’s “Golden Nymph” awards- Monaco’s version of the Oscars – in

A Blue Carpet Affair

Wedding season is officially in full swing and I’ve been going nonstop since May! With such a crazy schedule, it’s sometimes difficult  to pull myself away from work. Fortunately, I had a great excuse for a break last Friday when I was invited to attend the ‘Save our Sea’ benefit event  at the W Hotel

Spotted: The Landry Dress

There’s one word that I always use to describe my personal style:  feminine.  Sometimes I lean a little bohemian, sometimes more conservative–but always feminine. So while enjoying my recent creative retreat to Palm Springs, I decide to embrace my obsession for classic, lady-like silhouettes in the new “Landry” dress from Lauren Elaine Black.  I love
