• Beauty + Skincare Favorites in my Travel Bag

    Today’s post is on some skin + hair products that I almost always have with me when traveling, and use regularly while at home! Some of these are very old favorites, but worth mentioning again given their nifty travel-friendly packaging options (shared some thoughts on the value of these sizes, too). FYI for anyone interested in this dress, be warned that it’s slightly sheer. I loved the detailing and kept it ...

  • Runway-Inspired Hair: Twisted Messy Side Fishtail Braid Tutorial

    For the last part of my fashion week partnership with TRESemmé, I wanted to share how to recreate wearable versions of some of my favorite runway hairstyles! I loved the twisted ponytails that TRESemmé created backstage at Marissa Webb and the effortless fishtail braids that accompanied the Alice & Olivia presentation. This is a look that incorporates elements from both, and takes me under 15 minutes to do! It’s a versatile ...

    For my last look with TRESemmé during NYFW (see my first and second looks), I put together this black on black pairing for the Alice & Olivia presentation. To add softness to an all-leather look, we styled my hair down but with an unexpected element in the back!

This might be one of my favorite looks ever, and can work for casual or dressier occasions alike. I paired it with my Topshop romper for a few events, and the hairstyle stayed in place all day despite some gusty winds! FYI this particular Alexa style romper runs ...

  • Shanghai with Lancôme

    Last month we went on a whirlwind trip to Shanghai with Lancôme, a brand that’s been part of my beauty routine for many years now. It’s a pinch-me opportunity to work with brands that I love, and this project was all the more special as it took us back to the country where I was born. This was my first time back in Shanghai since visiting with my grandparents as ...
