I went to Palm Springs and stayed at The Parker hotel that had so many gorgeous places in it. The carpet in the hallways had this 70s feel to it with bright red doors. I've had this tiny little flare skirt for over a year and have yet to shoot it. When I originally bought these HM suede boots, I got them for Winter time but I love how transitional they are. I like doing looks I don't normally do and seeing what all I can pull off.

This double layered Puma jacket is everything. Muted details really make it unique compared to all the other active outwear I have. Two years ago I got a pair of silver shoes from ASOS and since then I've been wanting another pair and found these at Puma. They come in matte pink and matte blue too. Also, can I have everything from the Puma x Fenty collab. So poppin.

When I wore the stars and stripes bathing suit, I literally couldn't stop walking around saying 'Merica. One of my favorite trends is obviously boho. I wore this beautiful crochet overlay with tie up flats. I'm a fan of high waisted two-piece bathing suits and they have the perfect teal and pink set in their tropical collection. But I will say, I found myself hovering around their looks for sport. I shot a picture of a pair of platform sneakers they have out that I need to wear all of this Summer. You guys have to check out Target's swim collections. My favorite swimsuit that I wore was the printed one piece suit. I usually stick to basic neutrals but the bathing suit had such bright colors against black so I was super drawn to it.

I'm inspired and always have been from anything 90's. One of my biggest obsessions is eyelets. I included them in some of the pieces I designed for my next collection with Addition Elle that's coming on this Fall. I've had this ASOS dress sitting in my closet since last Summer and kept telling myself to wear it but not sure why I've been putting it off because I don't want to ever take it off my body. I put together some of my favorite pieces right now with eyelets on them!

The separation between straight and plus size can leave some women feeling outcasted from society even more than they already are because they look at the women on the front of magazines or modeling in campaigns and say this woman doesn't resemble my current body, or they say "I can't relate to this." They want to feel like that could be them without being considered as different. Especially when the only section in clothing stores they have are in the far back near the clearance rack. In my ideal world, there wouldn't be a separate section, there would just be larger sizes in everything the "straight" size clothes came in. On the other end, the term plus size can empower someone and make them feel like they're a part of something rather than feel excluded. Labels differ between everyone. Some people can feel frustrated with labels and some people can feel a sense of belonging. It really depends on the individual. The main point I'm getting across here is no matter what you call or label it, we need diversity in main stream media. Not only with body type but ethnicities as well. It needs to be normal and not shocking to see different body types every where in main stream. We see them daily on the streets, why can't we see them in this industry? I hope this April issue helps you with whatever you struggle with about yourself. Focus on your inner strength. Check out some of the articles that featured the cover or I interviewed with.

I just got back to LA from Florida after being there a week to see family. As soon as I got back, I packed for a trip to Palm Springs for a few press days with Target. I'll have more details and pictures this week! On another note, the hotel here has it's own gym so I threw on this F21 set. There's nothing I love more than activewear that's comfortable and cute at the same time. The best part I love about sneakers is that my foot is so small that I'm able to wear women's sizes and boys sizes. I'm a 5.5 Youth and 7 in Women so I always have a greater selection to choose from.

I picked this outfit out almost five months ago when I flew to NY to decorate a section of the Sunglass Hut store in Soho. It was on a mannequin for almost three months and glad it's finally on my body. haha.

Sorry for my absence. I have been working super hard on launching my new app that's available on apple. It's available for iPhone and android users but for the moment, only iPhone users can download the exclusive content that's .99 cents a month. I'm still working on it for android! I also have been traveling to and from for photo shoots and to see family. I just got back from London and am currently in Florida visiting the family, which is much needed. I can't stop wearing this oversized denim jacket I got from Target a few weeks back.
