On a recent sunny afternoon, I attended the launch of Ryan Seacrest Distinction, a menswear collection available exclusively at Macy's. It's a no-brainer that the hardest working man in show business would create a collection of business wear, think tailored shirt dresses, suits, and business casual separates like blazers. pants, and accessories. At the launch, we chatted about his new venture and his skincare regimen (he uses Dr. Lancer products!) as the man has soft poreless skin. Despite his predictably hectic schedule, Ryan commands a calming presence and seemed genuinely intent in living in the moment.

The launch was held at a breathtaking estate perched atop Beverly Hills overlooking LA, its infinite charm and endless beauty. Equally infinite and endless, my love affair with the beautiful creature I call home fuels never-ending bemusement for what tomorrow may hold.

{GBF Style + Beauty | Hollywood Moments}

I'm so excited to share the news that I will attending both the VMAs and the Emmys this weekend! It's such a special treat as I've been a celebrity junkie for quite some time. I picked up the habit of collecting celebrity news while in law school when I would relax the mind in between classes and study sessions by surfing Perez Hilton. Not one to brag but I am quite the walking encyclopedia when it comes to random and useless celebrity facts so it will be a dream come true to actually meet some of the people I've been cyber stalking, I mean, reading about all these years. After all, We're practically friends.

The last (and only) time I attended an award show was back in college. The VH1 Music Awards were held at the Shrine Auditorium directly across from USC. My friends and I were leaving our anthropology class when a woman with a clipboard approached us and asked if we'd like to attend the show. I was a bit dumbfounded as we were inadequately dressed to say the least. Before she could think twice and rescind the invitation, I quickly said yes and all three of us watched the show in sweet orchestra seats alongside perfectly coiffed and immaculately suited A-listers. How inadequately dressed you ask? I was in a baggy t-shirt and jeggings.

To avoid repeating such a heinous fashion faux pas, I have been furiously pinning outfit, hair, and makeup inspirations to help prepare for a weekend filled with Hollywood moments.  Follow me on Instagram to see the VMAs and The Emmys frame by frame from the eyes and lens of yours truly!

I wore my silk Keepsake dress to Malibu a few weeks ago for a few hours of ocean gazing. Earlier in the day, Clear Hair pampered my hair with a fabulous blowout by the incomparable Jen Atkin at the Andy LeCompte salon so I wanted to pair my romantic locks with an equally romantic outfit. The dress has unique gathered pleating, an unexpected Victorian collar, and it's in the palest blue, a color I can't stop wearing this summer. 

It's definitely a special occasions dress as I can see myself wearing it to summer weddings and other events that celebrate love, milestones, and exciting moments in life. In a few days, I will be savoring every single second of a very special Hollywood weekend where princess moments await. It's going to be unlike anything I've ever experienced and I can't wait to share my journey with you! Stay tuned!

Inspired by the ethereal flow of my mellow yellow Liberty Sage dress, I decided to put some effort into styling my hair and used my Jose Eber TRIO curling wand and Garnier Fructis Deconstructed Pixie Play to create soft textured waves in about five minutes. Because that's my patience threshold when it comes to hair styling.

I wore this outfit on the first day of the Loyola Law School Fashion Law Summer Intensive. In its inaugural year, the nine day course provides a concentrated immersion into fashion law and covers topics ranging from trademark law to social media legal considerations. Not only was it a great refresher course, it reminded me of why I'm a fashion lawyer-to bridge the gap between the frivolity of fashion and austerity of the law practice!

I'm looking forward to a busy Saturday. In the morning, I will be breaking down the basics of fashion law while providing practical legal tips for fashion entrepreneurs at the Simply Stylist Sessions at The Grove. And in the afternoon, I will be co-hosting a fun back to school styling session complete with music drinks, and lots of prizes at Westfield Topanga Canyon. I hope you can join me on August 16 and experience a blend of law and fashion!
