Nudity

A sudden heatwave has taken over LA and I've been forced to wear nothing but swimsuits and simple minidresses. Yesterday I wore my new 40's dress I found at Shareen Vintage (of course) and it couldn't have been more perfect for this 100-degree weather. 
Also wearing Miu Miu patent pumps, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, and one of my favorite Coach clutches that I should definitely wear more often. 
These sparkly earrings pinch my ears a little bit, but that's ok because they're so pretty. 
Have any of you ever heard of the blog Oh She Glows? I'm not vegan but I recently discovered her blog and I'm so excited to try out some of her recipes!

Stopped by the Standard in downtown LA before driving back to SF with some friends. I arrived at the tail end of the party since I'd been hanging out with my family and getting lunch at Boiling Crab in Alhambra. SO FREAKING GOOD. Anyway I knew I wasn't missing much at the Standard other than overpriced drinks so I didn't really care about missing the pool party. I don't really go out much when I'm visiting family in LA anyway. Right now I'm hanging out with my younger brother and cousin who are up visiting from LA and are here for one more night. Sorry for being so M.I.A. this week!

GGotW: How long have you been modeling?

KB: I have been modeling since I was 17, doing a few shoots a year casually, but since I've been at university I haven't had much time for it, but I've been getting more involved in it each year that goes by. My holidays are generally very busy, and during the semester my weekends are always filled. I graduate soon though so I'll be able to devote my full attention to modeling and be able to travel around more.



GGotW: What is Neko Nation, and its connection to cats?

KB: Neko Nation is an anime/gaming club event held in Australia (currently we are doing a tour of Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne). The dj's play lots of gaming/anime themes and Japanese pop/rock/dance. The cat part is the best part. The hosts of the evening are sexy catgirls that give out free sushi in pairs and are very dressed up and are the eye-candy of the event. Me and another model (Saccharine Darling) were the first two Catgirls and have been in every Neko Nation since it's beginning.



GGotW: Has you modeling afforded you the luxury of travel?

KB: Yes I have been able to travel to Melbourne to work with a lot of amazing photographers who were just great to work with and I have a lot of work set up for me when I go back there, whilst I am on tour with Neko Nation of course. I plan to travel to Brisbane and Sydney as well for modeling and then internationally.



GGotW: Do you get to shoot with a lot of different photographers?

KB: I have shot with many different photographers but I always love to meet creative minds that can just make spectacular art. My most favourite photographers to have worked with would be Kimothy, David Woolley and Ojo Magico. Every photographer that I work with has their own particular style and I tend to adapt pretty well to their demands (or lack their of!) I feel very privileged to be able to collaborate with such amazing minds, and I cannot wait to work with more photographers that will stimulate my creativity.



GGotW: What are your hobbies?

KB: Besides modeling, I spend a lot of my time studying, watching anime, or gaming. I also really like to read, at the moment I'm re-reading all the Harry Potter books. My favourite anime of all time would be Sailor Moon. I plan to get a big tattoo of Usagi and Tuxedo Mask dancing in their royal outfits. I also love Azumanga Daioh and have started a new obsession with Nichijou, which are both comedy girl animes. The last game that I finished was final fantasy thirteen, but the last one I played would be call of duty: black ops. My boyfriend, housemate, and siblings are all gamers and anime freaks like me.



GGotW: Do you work or go to school?

KB: I study :) I am completing a double major in psychology and counselling. Right now I am in my third and last year of my undergraduate degree. I am planning on having a gap year between when I finish and when I start my honours degree. Then I will probably end up doing my masters in either clinical neuropsychology or school psychology. I haven't quite figured out which one I want to do yet. Honours will take me a year full time, and then masters would be two years full time probably. So I have a lot of more studying ahead of me! But I will do those when I decide to settle down in my career as a psychologist. I still have a lot of traveling, moving, and modeling ahead of me.

Floral Arrangements

I was just looking into my closet the other day and noticed how many floral prints I've acquired throughout these past few months... what can I say, I'll never resist a good flower print!
I love the shape of this bell skirt- it's quilted and has hidden pockets in the front. Who doesn't love discovering pockets they never knew they had?
Worn with striped tee from Men's Zara, Miu Miu nude patent pumps, and Clara Kasavina ring.

short overalls c/o Denim Refinery, Saint James striped shirt, Karen Walker sunglasses, Rachel Comey Miner boots

I'm down in LA right now for my brother's birthday so this post will be fairly brief, sorry guys! This was actually from earlier in the week and was what I was wearing when I saw the dude from Arcade Fire at Barney's. Of all the things to be wearing when I run into someone cool like that I wear an outfit that makes me look like an 8-year-old kid, oh great. Seems like these overalls aren't such a big hit with the guys... every girlfriend that I've shown them to want a pair but my guy friends always cringe. Ahh well, who do I have to impress?

I also realized that I don't post very many pictures of myself with Brent but that's usually because he's the one taking my photos! This time Mike was with us so he took these, hah. Speaking of Mike, when he saw my feature at Gap Mag he asked me why I didn't submit any photos of him. Pfft. As if a whole post dedicated to him wasn't already enough? So ungrateful!

Corner Coffee Shop

Last Sunday I took a trip to the Rose Bowl flea market for the very first time. It was so overwhelming, but I'm so happy I was to find the furniture pieces I had been looking for. While walking around and dying in the scorching heat, I found a vendor who was selling a bunch of vintage clothes for half off. I ended up finding this beautiful taffeta skirt and a blog reader who I met there said it suited me well!
These earrings were found at an antique mall, I absolutely love them!
Worn with American Apparel leotard, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.
