2 words to change your closet- Fashion Nova. I started hearing about this online store on social media, through celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Cardi B promoting them. I was skeptical, not thinking that the quality and fit of the items would be up to par.

I finally decided to give them a shot and I've never been happier with an online shopping experience. Their prices are way more than reasonable, the fit is everything, the quality is more than I would have expected. I've already washed one of the dresses a few times and no fuzzballs or unraveling anywhere.

If you're on a budget but still trying to look like a million I highly suggest you check them out!

P.S. Every purchase also comes with a coupon...I mean, could this place get any better?! Get ready to be addicted.

TGIF! Hope you all have an amazing weekend.

I don't get to model with other people often but when I do it's always a good time. I had been eyeing Betty's work for sometime so when she asked me to be apart of this shoot I eagerly said yes! You would never guess from the looks on our faces that it was so cold. I mean barely being able to feel your toes cold, but it was so worth it. We held hands, danced around, shared some laughs in the most gorgeous dresses. I don't think I'll ever get tired of playing dress up. Pretty dresses, cute hair, beautiful makeup, and the most stunning flower arrangements; I was in heaven. A one of a kind team and I am so happy to have been a part of the magic.

Something old, Something new

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

They say that summer is for lovers, and I could not agree more. Here is a simple, clean summer bridal look I modeled with one of my favorite wedding photographers- Anna Peters.

My first bridal shoot happened in Seattle last fall; nearly five styled shoots later I've found what I love to do more than anything- play fake bride. It might sound a little weird, but it's so much fun.

There are many different "genres" of modeling: avant garde, commercial, bridal, fitness, alternative, boudoir. I have been able to do a few different styles, but bridal has always been the easiest for me to model. Modeling is essentially like acting, and playing the part of bride has always come easily for me.

People rarely know about the not-so-glamorous sides of modeling because it is rarely discussed. As we were taking photos in the middle of a field we were nearly bitten to death by mosquitoes (minor exaggeration), but boy were the bugs bad that day. However, as always, the end result is always worth it.

Until next time :)
