Shortly after last months “Best of the City” mention, I received an invitation from Modern Luxury to be involved in their September “Style” Issue. What followed was a whirlwind wardrobe pull, interview and photo-shoot, which seemed to take place as soon as I could eagerly agree.
This is that feature…
I couldn’t be more humbled, honored, or excited to be featured in such a beautifully curated publication or among the extraordinary company of these four gorgeous, driven, accomplished, successful & immensely stylish women.
It’s a true thrill & an honor. Thank you Modern Luxury Scottsdale!
Endless love + thanks + applause to the spectacular talents of these artists, as well…

Hi dolls! I apologize for being MIA. For the last couple weeks I’ve been completely enthralled with styling a commercial ad campaign. It was crazy, chaotic & anxiety-ridden but it was fabulous! I couldn’t be more proud of the results and I can’t wait to share those with you – sometime very soon!
In the meantime, it may be a little delayed but you know I couldn’t forget about my favorite monthly list of treasures! And let me tell you, styling a high-end commercial photo-shoot puts you in the midst of some fabulous pieces, I’ve been drooling for weeks!!
1. M.A.C. Fluidline Eyeliner – The ultra-smooth, gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish… yes!
2. Nixon ‘The 51-30 Chrono’ Watch – Blacked out & over-sized, the only way to go!
3. Dior Vernis Gel Shine and Long Wear Nail Lacquer “Métal Montaigne 803”
4. Valentino ‘Noir Rockstud’ T-Strap Pump – Black. Studded. Valentino. High-heel. Any questions?
5. DSQUARED2 Leather Pencil Dress – I’m clearly jonesing for Fall, as I couldn’t tell you what I’d do with a leather dress in July – in Arizona – but I need this in my life!
6. Eddie Borgo Silver-Plated Spike Earrings – These are fabulous + fierce!
7. Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’ 58mm Sunglasses – Solid Black. A chic classic!
8. Pave Crystal Snake Cuff Bracelet/Silvertone by: Adriana Orsini – Ssssensational!
9. YSL Crocodile Printed Cassandre Black Leather Bag – YSL, enough said. Gorgeous! Must!!
Remember: Secrets don’t make friends, so tell me… What’s on your Lust List!?
What I Wore… Earrings: ℅ Shop Jami | Dress: H&M – Similar | Bracelets: Aldo (stacked) these & these | Midi Rings: NastyGal | Clutch: Tasha x Nordstrom | Heels: Steve Madden | Nail Polish – Mani: Pure Ice “Siren” | Nail Polish – Pedi: Essie “Blanc” | Faux-hawk hold/volume: Sexy Hair
Problem: I’ve always wanted a faux-hawk done to my hair but my length has always been too long. Even whilst modeling (when you’re given ample opportunities to try out the coolest/craziest of styles) I was left disappointed: top knots, slick pony-tails & big curls galore but never anything “faux-hawk fun”… Zzzzz…
Solution: While getting ready the other night I decided, now is the time to attempt the coveted hairstyle while I’m enjoying the benefits of my “LOB” (long bob). So, I jumped on YouTube & found a number of DIY tutorials that followed/recreated (with the help of an army of bobby pins, baby elastics, Sexy Hair products + mirrors) & voilà! No, it isn’t perfect; I don’t even know if I did it correctly but ultimately I achieved the look that I wanted & for my first attempt, I’m damn proud of my faux-hawk!
The event that scored the debut of my first faux-hawk (lucky ducks) was Phoenix Fashion Week‘s “Emerging Designer Announcement”. 14 emerging designers (from all over the US) were selected by the PHXFW team to present their collections at Phoenix Fashion Week this fall & the announcement event provided the public/media an opportunity to meet the designers & get a “chic peek” at their designs.
The 14 lucky designers are…
