90’s Inspired Urban Forest

*Clothing provided by Simply Be*90's Urban Forest shrunk

Hey Guys & Dolls!

This dress is so 90’s and I’m feeling my inner riot girl down to the run in my tights- see if you can catch it in the video. I love and live in shirt dresses because they are perennially cool, flattering, and I think incredibly sexy in an understated and confident way. I wanted to include a look in this series that wasn’t as dressed-up; parties are often casual affairs and I sometimes one does not want to fuss with an updo! Let you hair down, throw on some silly accessories (soup ladle earrings anyone?) and relax into the holidays!


We filmed this at a bus stop in Oakland. I love how in the middle of this busy city, that my mom calls the concrete jungle, there’s this bus stop with a bit of wild grass, flowers and these memorial stones. There’s also a mural on the other side I’ll show you another day. I just love how steps away from this is a 7-11, a nice apartment building, billboards, and adorable craftsman style single family homes. I “hella” love Oakland!

    That dress reminds me of the one that Gwen Stefani wore in No Doubt’s Don’t Speak video. LOVE THIS OUTFIT!
