Blue Trench and Denim

DSC_0815

Good Morning loves and happy March! I literally can’t believe we are in March already, its insane how quickly time goes by these days and it just makes it more and more obvious to me how precious each little moment we have with one another is. Everyday with Valentina is so different and she’s always learning something new, so it’s so important for me to cherish and love every moment….even the SUPER naughty ones. Does anybody else have a super naughty one year old?! What am I going to do when the terrible 2’s come?! I swear I’m going to start drinking an entire bottle of wine every night soon. haha

Enough about me, lets talk about how fabulous this trench is! I just think a trench is probably the best and most stylish piece of clothing you could have when transitioning from Winter into Spring. Especially here in Florida, that transition sometimes can be really quick! You can wake up in the morning and its 50’s and by noon we are looking at an 80 degree weather – it’s just insane. So its hard sometimes to dress accordingly when the weather is so unpredictable these days. A trench is just perfect in my opinion, especially when its super stylish and ONLY $37! Plus if you’ve never shopped on SheIn before you can get 40% off your first order, using code “SHE40″….so yeah. Enjoy!

Get to Know Laura Brown, Executive Editor of Harper’s Bazaar

1

If you don’t know who Laura Brown is, then you are not a lover of Fashion – that’s for sure! As an icon to the modern woman, Laura has revolutionized Harper’s Bazaar and brought her edgy personality into the magazine, creating the most memorable and beautiful covers the magazine has ever produced. I was beyond excited to interview her, especially because when growing up, being someone like Laura Brown was my ultimate dream!

I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous to interview such a powerful person in the fashion industry.  You never know how someone in her position would feel about taking time out of her busy NYFW day to talk to a blogger from Orlando, FL.  Well, let me tell you, the moment I got on the phone with her I felt comfortable. She was funny, engaging, interested and it honestly felt like I was sitting at a bar talking to a friend. I wish I was sitting at bar talking to her! Maybe someday!

A: How did you get into the Fashion Industry?

LB: I’ve always had all the magazines in Australia, we used to get them three months late, so I would just pore all over them. I was just feeling entranced by it, something that was a land beyond what I knew, and I wanted to be part of it. I never wanted to do anything else. I studied journalism in college and then I got my first job in a magazine in Australia.

A: Working at Harper’s Bazaar, what was the most memorable cover you produced?

LB: Rihanna and the shark. I’ve always loved that image of Steven Spielberg in the set of jaws. I always loved something that’s iconic and famous or mythologized. We built a really cheesy shark in NYC, drove it down to Tampa and shot it in an aquarium. When we thought about it I knew it was going to be a badass cover. It’s even become a meme now! That’s my favorite one I’ve ever done.

A: What is your biggest source of inspiration when producing a cover?

LB: Depends on the person. Depends who we are shooting. If it’s someone more classic we might want to punk them up, and if it’s someone more punky we might want to make them more classic.  It comes from the girl first. We were going to shoot Emilia Clarke, and Valentino had a beautiful Dragon Gown, so I knew the direction to go. It could also be something that’s going on in pop culture, or something more classic.  It really depends on who is feeling crazier in the staff, which is normally me!

A: Fashion week just ended. Was there a collection that just blew you away?

LB: I loved Rodarte! I thought it was great, they do really good sparkly stuff and they had these sparkly pants that are really great. They are a little more artsy.  I loved how Alexander Wang went back to his street stuff. That’s exactly his strength, so it was great.

A: If you had to wear one designer for the rest of your life. Who would you pick?

LB: OMG! For the rest of my life?! Isabel Marant, everything she does is cool! She has the best summer dresses ever and I have a million of them. She just has great clothes for girls! I would say also Dior, but for literally just living my life I’d say Isabel Marant for sure.

A: What would you say will be the most essential item to have this Fall season?

LB: A really great over the knee boot that you can wear with a pair of skinny jeans. It just pulls everything together. I think it makes a longer dress or a below the knee dress look so slick. I think it really just pulls it together.

A: What is a must have item every fashionista should splurge on?

LB: A Chanel bag. You will never regret owning a Chanel bag. They never go out of style, it’s a wonderful piece.

A: What is the go to item in your closet?

LB: Three pieces of Acne Studio Jeans that are in the exact same style but three different colors. They are from their Shore line, they are slightly high-waisted, sort of straight legged and a little bit cropped. (Read more about Laura Brown’s love for these jeans)

A: What is your go to beauty product or item?

LB: Shani Darden Retinol Reform. She’s the greatest facialist ever, Jessica Alba introduced me to her and her retinol reform. It’s done wonders for my skin.

A: What advice would you give to someone trying to make it in the fashion industry?

LB: Intern. Intern in every single field in fashion if you can.

A: What would you say is the biggest mistake people make when trying to get into the fashion industry?

LB: I don’t like excessive entitlement, “I deserve this”, “how come I can’t go to the photo shoot?”, this and that. It drove me crazy one time a designer sent me a dress and an intern said, “OMG you are so lucky”, and I said, “I’ve been in the industry for 20 years, maybe I can get a dress!” So I do think entitlement issues are a problem. I like smart people who aren’t afraid of doing the job.

Thank you Laura for taking your time to talk to me!

In honor of Valentina, here’s one of my favorite videos of Laura with Elmo!
