ground zero.

I have been online buddies with the talented Colby Blount forever, but we've never managed to connect in real life [i've been wanting to shoot with him for the longest time]. Luckily we connected backstage during NYFW at Jonathan Simkhai and were finally able to make a shoot happen.

orange crush.

while in new york last month, i met up with my girlfriend at the new condé nast building for lunch [be sure to check out her gorgeous personal project, BEST].  she looked so effortlessly chic in her adidas x pencil skirt that i had to recreate in my own way-- thanks for the inspiration, bunny! if you guys want to do the same, these little cuties will only set you back $55. perfect for the girl on the go.

amo || love

meet amo denim-- this new vintage inspired luxury denim line is a dream.  we are carrying it at lola now [almost sold out!] and it ranks within my top five list of must-haves for spring / summer 2015-- just imagine your beloved old levi 501s, but comfy x with stretch. the washes are fresh, the cuts are special, and this line [created by two best friends] is getting rave reviews from the likes of vogue, w, and even the wall street journal.

birds of a feather.

my buying partner, jade, and i are tackling new york market this week.  [remember this recent video?we're placing orders to decide what will hang at lola this fall and let me say it is looking fantastic.  market means longs days on our feet and even longer nights pow-wowing strategy.  f/w is our favorite season to buy and it's a blast getting to hand select everything with a friend. . .

travel series.

hi hi!  anna here, reporting live from new york fashion week-- and you guys, it's freaking frigid; we're talking -8 vibes.  packing for temps like this can no doubt be a bit tricky but i have a few tricks up my sleeve; wear your bulkiest items to the airport, pile on the moisturizer [this one is my #1 go to], and layer layer layer. 
on a related travel note, i'm so elated to announce that one of my all-time favourite lines, haute hippie, has invited me to collaborate with them on a little project-- i'll be chatting over on their blog this week about my travel motto, must see places during travel, how to stay stylish at the airport, etc [the first of a three part series where we'll be covering topics i'm into like music x personal style]. this look was pulled together featuring pieces from the upcoming spring / summer '15 HH collection that will soon be available at lola.  it was an absolute blast + who doesn't love a sneak peek?  is this trench overlay not too insane?  it is designed with shorts, so you can wear it as a dress as well... yes please.
