I traveled to St. Petersburg, and Moscow years ago and fell in love with the beauty of Russia.  I was captivated by the people, fashion, and culture.  I came home with gorgeous scarves, and jewelry from the street markets.  This outfit was influenced by my trip to Russia and the street fashion that I witnessed there.  

This ushanka inspired hat and gummy skinny jeans are perfect for animal lovers.  Faux fur and leather look just as chic as the real deal.  I found my hat at Forever 21 awhile ago, but here is a similar one from Etsy.  Guarantee you'll stay warm and fashionable especially if you've been trapped in this polar vortex.  

I think I'm ready for Sochi! Wishful thinking...

June Gloom is a term used in southern California to describe the weather during early summer.  Overcast skies, and cool weather make for interesting clothing choices.  This great faux leather jacket by Thread & Supply is perfect in keeping comfortable in cool conditions. When the sun decides to peek out and announce that it's summer then I'm prepared in my light, sheer dress.  Any long tunic can be converted into a dress--add a skinny belt for some shape. There's no reason to let the gloom in June bring you down--instead have fun with the endless spring/summer clothing combinations.  

Thread & Supply is another Los Angeles based brand.  And the owners/designers are dear friends of mine from Maryland.  They offer a great range of outerwear in various styles for the fashion conscious woman.  I will be posting more great pieces from them soon.  

Our location for this shoot was the railroad tracks that run along the L.A. River in downtown.  The area is eery yet peaceful.  We highly recommend the area to photographers looking for cool locations.
