Hi loves!

This week has been DAMN productive.  And it feels reaaaaally good.  This morning we drove downtown to pick up some dresses that we’re restocking for Montazami Brand.  We have been sold out of the small and medium sizes of a few of our styles, like the Palma Dress and Hudson Grey Knit dress, and a lot of people have been asking about them.  Well now we finally are getting more!  Also, we added three more choker styles on our website today 🙂  Check them out HERE

After downtown, we met up with my mom and Nicho for a fresh salad from Mendocino Farms in Marina Del Rey.  I decided for my favorite go-to: the Save Drakes Salad (fresh greens with goat cheese, pink lady beet, red onion, apple, almond, and dried cranberries tossed in a citrus vinaigrette.  Mmmmmm.  I got this ALL THE TIME when I was in college, probably a little too often.  But they literally give you a snowball of goat cheese so yeah, of course I’m gunna love it.  They know how to keep their customers comin’ back 😉 hehe

The highlight of my day was having my mom over at our apartment.  She took one look around and I have to admit— was not happy with what she saw.  There’s just been a lot of stuff going on lately, but I know there’s no excuse for not keeping the apartment tidy.  But she really worked her magic and even paid for our grocery bill!!  We were SO happy haha.  Groceries can get so damn expensive, especially when you’re buying organic, and even worse— from Whole Foods.  Things add up, so when my mom does stuff like this it really feels special <3

Happy Tuesday!

Remember when Glam Squad came to my house last week to do me up for a special event?  Well it was for this beautiful blogger brunch, hosted by Casetify to kick off NYFW… from LA!  It was held at trendy LA hot-spot Gracias Madre, which is an all vegan, Mexican restaurant right in the middle of West Hollywood.  Casetify set up a gorgeous –and flower-bombed– table outside on the patio under the umbrellas.  The best part were the personalized phone cases that they gave to everyone.  They chose a photo of me wearing the Downtown Crop top and Downtown Mesh Skirt from Montazami Brand, which is a photo I posted on instagram a couple of months ago.  Isn’t it so cute?!  I thought it was the best idea ever, especially for a bunch of bloggers.

What else was in the goodie bag? A cute blouse from Paige, a necklace, sunnies from Perverse, and more!

I wore my new white pants from Chiquelle [here], paired with a textured tan crop top and Capwell + Co jewelry. Thank you Casetify for hosting such a beautiful event!

Hi guys!

Back from Labor Day Weekend and ready to hit this work week with full force!  I hope you guys had a great weekend, I apologize for my bad update here on the blog.  Yesterday we went on the boat and drove it up to Newport Beach, stopped for some yummy pizza and just chilled.  They had a few boat slips right outside of the restaurant for boats to come pick up their pizza.. talk about convenience haha.

Sara and I had a mini photoshoot in Venice Beach last week with a new photographer, named Franz Steiner.  We shot a couple of looks for Montazami Brand, just for fun!  I’m wearing the Hudson grey knit dress with the detachable belt/necklace.  I always get so many compliments when I wear it 🙂

All Up In The Studio

Love this shot from my photoshoot with Chiquelle last time I was in Sweden. I think I need to invest in more halter tops?! It’s so cute with high waisted mom jeans.  Shot by one of my favorite photographers Filip Shobot 🙂

Hi cuties!

Woke up at 6:30 this morning to open the door for hair and makeup.  We’re going to two social events today, a blogger brunch with Casetify, and a Wildfox launch party at Revolve, so Sara and I decided to schedule an appointment with Glam Squad. For those of you who have never heard of Glam Squad before, it’s basically a hair and makeup team available at your finger tips.  You can order hair, makeup, or both to your house whenever you need to glam it up for a special event.  Whoever came up with this concept is absolutely genius… why didn’t I think of that?!  Sara and I had four girls come, 2 make up artists and 2 hair stylists.  They brought their little suitcases FILLED with makeup and hair products, and I basically just told them what I did and didn’t like.  I said I wanted my makeup very sunkissed and bronzey with shimmery golds and plums on my eyelids.  I loved the way it turned out!  I’ll be posting pictures from the event so you guys can get a better look <3

Dress from Flynn Skye

Here’s a better look at my new dress that I wore on Sunday!  I love the muted orange print… It’s still really hot here in LA so I’m continuing my summer wardrobe while I’m preparing my clothes for fall.  I cannot wait for fall fashion, but I’m not sure when I’ll be able to start breaking out those sweaters and over-the-knee boots.. might have to wait a few weeks.

Today we bought 5 different rolls of material for Montazami Brand!  The colors and prints are to die for…. we have some major cuteness in store for our future collections.  Get ready for some must-have dresses, wrap tops, palazzo pants, and long flowy skirts.

Happy Birthday Baby Bro!


Today was even better than I expected it to be. Since Nicho is now living right across the street from Sara and I (at LMU), we planned a little get together at our place for Nicho’s 18th birthday. Emma drove up from OC so we had the whole Montazami kid clan together!  We made chicken and carne asada tacos (one of Nicho’s favorites) and had cupcakes for dessert.  After opening presents we watched Dirty Grandpa before they left to go home… It was so cozy to have them here.  Nicho is truly the sweetest thing and we are so lucky to have him as a brother 🙂 Turning 18 means he is now officially an adult, and I’m confident that he will grow up to me such an amazing man!

Cozy Sundays with my love in Manhattan Beach!  We used to go there every weekend when we first started dating, to get breakfast at this one little local spot called North End.  They have Mexican inspired egg dishes and we always ordered the same thing, Huevos Divorciados, which is two eggs on top of a quesadilla with bacon and sausage, topped with avocado mash and salsa.  SO YUM.  The waiter gave us some surprise beignets, and I couldn’t believe how good they were!  Mmmmm with the powdered sugar…. I had 1 and a half 😐 Today was definitely my cheat day haha.

Now I’m ending the weekend with a spaghetti squash dinner and some MTV awards.  Just watched Beyonce perform and she NAILED it.  Goodnight everyone <3

Happy Friday!

Here’s a little behind the scenes from our Montazami Brand photoshoot at the Chiquelle head office in Stockholm!  They were so nice to let us shoot a couple of product shots there… they are the nicest.  Hopefully Montazami Brand will have an office this big one day.  I’m so excited for the future of our brand, I really see it moving forward.  We have so many design ideas and we’re operating full speed now.  We’re constantly creating new designs and finding different ways to stand out 🙂  We have something SO MAJOR that’s going to be released this Fall, but Im not going to tell what it is just yet!  Hint: it isn’t clothing…
