Here is part two of my shoot with Marika (@JPInsider) for our Little Mistress collaboration. Be sure to check out the dress (Click Here) and their website in general for more amazing selection of dresses! You won’t be disappointed! More details on how Marika styled it on her blog: JPInsider. We shot this around Hayes Valley that involved a little bit of exploration from one corner to another.
Arika Sato and I wanted to shoot someplace out of our normal shooting spots (i.e. Melrose Place and Melrose Avenue). So I suggested Venice Beach and she said, why not! She brought in several swim pieces from Lisa Blue Swimwear and Ami Club Wear and we took our shoot along Venice Beach. Of course we had to avoid the unwanted gazes of creepers, so we found a nice spot where no one would bother us. It was a really nice warm and sunny day, and we had tons of fun shooting both photos and videos for her #FirstGlamDayofSummer Lookbook. Then we got really hangry towards the end but managed to finish all the looks we needed. We ended up eating in Koreatown later on. Here’s the video and photos! Hope you like them!
I just had to share with you these macarons I got from Macaron Cafe. They were nice enough to expedite these sweet treats all the way from New York straight to my workplace at Fyusion HQ. I decided to share them with all my coworkers (sharing is caring!) and everyone LOVED it!! I have to say these are more flavorful than the ones I’ve tried from other macaron shops, and pretty much my new favorite. We’re contemplating on ordering some more at the office. Be sure to check out Macaron Cafe if you’re craving amazing macarons since they ship nationwide too! Special thanks to Rachel for modeling these macarons for me (click here for our Fyuse!).
I first discovered Binh (@worelikealion) not on Instagram but on Fyuse!! She was one of the most active and fun accounts to follow on the app, and I knew I just had to shoot with her one day. The moment finally came when she told me she was coming down to LA. I just happened to be in LA that same weekend too. We did a collaboration shoot for Faith & Lace as well, which is another brand that you should definitely keep an eye out for when they launch! I had a blast with Binh in Manhattan Beach, and I was sad we only got to shoot for a few hours since I had to catch a flight right after. This was definitely one of my favorite photoshoots! Can’t wait to shoot with her again. Check out her blog too: Click Here. Stay tuned for more posts – we did 6 looks that day!

Just recently heard of a fashion brand from UK called Little Mistress. After they approached me for a collaboration, I immediately said yes once I saw their amazing collection. I knew Marika (@JPInsider) would be the perfect blogger for me to shoot the dresses with, and she definitely took my breath away in this Pink Floral Bandeau Maxi Dress. We shot this in our favorite little district, Hayes Valley. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Be sure to follow Little Mistress on Instagram: @littlemistressuk.
Oh and check out this Fyuse I took of the dress: Click Here.
I came across designer Alli K’s pieces during my last shoot with Lola Fair. I never realized how amazing her designs were! Check out Alli K Clothing when you get the chance! This set was taken during the Fyuse video shoot in Koreatown with Lola Fair and Studio 5A’s Justin Park. I’m so excited for the video to come out! More details of her outfit now on her blog: Floral Fantasy.
I love shooting dresses, and Arika Sato always wows me with her dress selections. Here’s a compilation of all the dresses we’ve shot together this past couple of weeks. She’s such a stunner. Be sure to check out her blog and YouTube videos for more details of her outfits. We shot this all over West Hollywood and Venice.
I’ve never been to Paradise Cove in Malibu Beach. Ariana Lauren, Christina Aguayo, and I came upon this perfect beach cove because we were hungry during the drive and the Paradise Cove Cafe seemed like a great idea! I am so glad we all went here! The food wasn’t so bad, and the location was perfect for a bikini shoot! Be sure to stop by here someday if you are driving along Malibu Beach / Highway 1! See more of our Malibu shots on Ariana’s blog: Malibu.
I first came across Essy Park at the FashionTap Launch Party a few months ago. I was mesmerized by her style when I saw her walked through the crowd. I wasn’t the only one either, a couple of other bloggers started wondering who she was. I finally had a chance to talk with her and we decided to keep in touch to shoot someday. We finally had our chance to do so this past May. We ventured around LA Arts District for some cool backdrops to shoot. This outfit was kawaii to the max! Her Rilakkuma-everything is everything! Be sure to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: Essy Noir: Yellow Tales.
During my visit to New York City, I had a sweet opportunity to meet and catch up with Leah Ho of Lipstick Catwalk. She is one of my favorite bloggers in NYC and I was just happy we had time to snap a couple of pics! We also did some really cool Fyuses too: Click Here. I really wish we can shoot more often! SoHo is one of my favorite districts in New York, and I look forward to exploring some more cool spots there someday. Be sure to check out her blog post for more details of her outfit: NYC Little Italy.
This was a different side of Francis Lola that I saw, but I thought she pulled it off quite well. We found a cool wall to shoot in an artsy part of Long Beach that was a great fit for her outfit. Hope you enjoyed the shots! Now go check out her blog post for more details of her #OOTD: the blvck sheep: Marble.
