Yesterday afternoon I had the plesure of styling 5 talented young ladies for Nationalist Magazine. These girls are young and making moves in the industry! It was so much fun getting to doll the girls up...It's times like these where my job feels like fun and not work.
I can't wait to share the final images with you guys! If you have any questions for these girls just write them in the comments below and I will get them to the magazine for you!!
Get to know them (:
Just saw this new purse all over the Chanel SS13 runway!
Would you rock this giant Chanel bag next summer?
Would you rock this oversized bag and please tell me where in the
world you would wear it out to?
Last week I had the pleasure to visit the Excess Baggage showroom in LA.
It was so much fun to view the new collection! I was in love with their cardigans, they also had an awesome selection of shorts. If you want to check it out visit www.shopexcessbaggage.com
All the garments are very comfy casual- they have classic LA chic feel.
I had the chance to talk with BUZZNET about my favorite item in the showroom!
I went with very romantic - doll like feel for the hair and makeup as well as the garments.
You will see designs by Li Cari, De La Hooke, Missoni, and Twisted Silver
I hope you loved these as much as I do (:
What was your favorite look Erin wore?
Here are a few fun questions I answered for Buzznet on my childhood favorites!
When you were a kid did you prefer Barney or Sesame Street?
I watched both! I liked Sesame Street better but when my baby brother was born we started watchig Barney.
Who was your favorite Power Ranger?
The PINK ranger, for obvious reasons.
What were three of your favorite foods growing up?
Mac n Cheese, eggs and cheese, and green beans
Did you choose video games or sports as a hobby?
I was never a 'sporty' kid. I liked playing Mario Brothers but I was more of an arts and crafts type. I always had my coloring book and huge bag of markers and crayons.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was really young I wanted to design perfume bottles because they looked so pretty to me. Then when I got a little older, around 8 years old I wanted to design shoes and belts, then a little later I knew it was FASHION
When I was little always wanted to look 'put together'
I had to have a hat on, or a purse with me. I just wanted to make a statement! haha

Me & Mom (:
Do you want the new Green Day album OR the new No Doubt Album?
I have to go with No Doubt, Gwen is my girl and I have always been inspired by her fashion and music! Since back in the day she has made the most rockin fashion statements.
Old school Pop music OR the current Pop stars?
This is a hard one!! I love my 90's pop but I think right now current pop is really fun and a little bit more dance. I think I would pick todays current pop stars. They all seem a bit more edgy and powerful
Instagram OR Twitter?
I use both SO much! I think I would have to say Instagram is really fun right now, and a picture is worth 1,000 words right?
Texting OR talking on the phone?
I think talking on the phone is way more personal and I can't just text, I love to text my life away, don't get me wrong. However there is nothing like hearing the tone in someones voice.
Buying CDs OR listening online?
Buying a CD!
Group dates OR single dates?
Single dates because my boyfriend and I have yet to find people that we both like hanging out with haha.
Halloween OR Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving all the way!!! I love all the food and family and we do it up big for thanksgiving at my house. Plus I don't celebrate Halloween.
Summer OR Winter Fashion
This is sooo hard for me, being a fashion designer I love fall and winter clothing. The textures and the layers and the fabrics are so gorgeous. However, personally I rather wear less and not have to worry about freezing. I like being able to rock a mini dress.
In honor of National Singles Week tell us what your ideal “treat yourself” solo date is!?
I think the ideal solo date for me would have to be a mani-pedi followed by a trip to Target and ending with a visit to my favorite little macaron shoppe in Old Town Pasadena!
What’s the worst date you have ever been on?
The worst date I have ever been on was about 3+ years ago with this random guy who asked me out, I had no idea who he was. We went for froyo and we sat outside the store just looking at each other. We had nothing to talk about, it was so lame.
What is your biggest pet peeve that someone could do to you on a date?
Be cheap, I think it's so tacky. Even my guy FRIENDS treat girls to things like ice cream or if we get fast food they don't collect your $3 So I guess my biggest pet peeve is when guys don't act like gentlemen. If you're on a date he should be making you feel special.
Favorite present you bought yourself?
Recently it would have to be my Betsey Johnson peep toe heels. They are SO sexy.
If you had the chance to go on a trip anywhere in the world by yourself, where would you go and what would you do?
Hands down I would go to New York. I love it there and I feel like it's so full of energy, it would be the perfect place to go if you had to be alone because you would never feel alone in NYC.
XOXO! Jazmin Whitley
PS- smile if you're single! Timing is everything, never force anything (: The right guy will just pop into your life when time time is right .

I'm not sure if I love it or hate it- What do you think? LOVE IT or LEAVE IT?
Below you will see some of the best and worst that tie dye has to offer
Here is where the not so awful tie dye comes in and makes me wonder if this trend if doable
When done right it can be ...not so bad.
