You might’ve spotted model Sarah Engelland on the John Galliano F/W 2014 and Saint Laurent S/S 2014 runway this past year, but this week she took a break from the fashion world and headed to SXSW for a balls-out road trip. Sarah is a total Southern girl (and a major foodie!), so she decided to share her day-to-day hangs with us because, well, she’s cool like that. Peep her Texas adventures below, and check back right here on the blog for the rest of her SXSW diary later this week.
Sometimes you just need to pack your bags, hop on a plane and travel across the world with your two BFFs, and, well, that’s exactly what we did. The Model Burnbook’s Cailin Hill and IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika met us in Japan for a super kawaii adventure that included a trip to Hanayashiki—the oldest amusement park in Tokyo—and a tschotske-filled foray through some tiny temples. Check out some of our favorite snaps below!

We’ve been mega fans of The Model Burnbook’s Cailin Hill for awhile now–heck, she even used to model for us way back in the day. Now, she lives in Tokyo with her hubby Dai Araki, and we thought this would be the perfect time to hear about how she managed to land a dude in a whole other hemisphere. Here, Cailin tells us about her overseas love story.
Hey! It’s almost V-Day, so we gathered five of our favorite fashion couples from around the globe to talk all things L-O-V-E.
BAMBI NORTHWOOD-BLYTH & DAN SINGLE
Who they are: Model and Ksubi co-founder.
“Love is such a splendid thing but—to keep it short and sweet—I will take a quote from two of my homies in London, the Chemical Brothers: ‘Just remember to fall in love. There’s nothing else.'” —Bambi
It’s not often one of our Nasty Gal models ditches her L.A. digs to go on tour with Kanye West, but when Danielle Alcaraz joined the Yeezus tour as a visual artist, dancer and model in October of last year, we had to know more. “It was more of a theatrical performance rather than a typical hip-hop show. We were a live art installment.” Thirty shows later, Danielle is back in town with some serious stories to share. Check out some of her backstage snaps (and killer Nasty Gal ensembles!) below.
Dudes, we hate to break it to you, but our awesome Calendar Gals feature has officially come to an end! We had to go out with a bang, so we asked our own #GIRLBOSS/CEO Sophia Amoruso to share what she’s dying to get her hands on this season—oh, and wish you all a very merry Christmas!
We have a million and one reasons to love Phoebe Lovatt (see: killer style, on-point beauty game), but perhaps our favorite thing about this LA-via-London girl is that she regularly contributes to our blog! Whether it’s smart beach reads or all-girl art collectives, Phoebe is always inspiring us with thoughtful pieces on topics that we actually care about. Check out what she’s pining for this Christmas in her wishlist below!
Ploy Chava seriously does it all. When she’s not killing it as a style editor for ELLE Thailand, she runs her own blog and works on her fashion line. One look at her Instagram, and you can see why she’s taking over the fashion industry—she’s got that whole cutesy-meets-couture aesthetic on lock. Peep what she added to her holiday wishlist below!
If you haven’t been following Jaennelle Vergonio’s style blog, you’ve definitely been missing out. The Las Vegas stylist/merchandiser/all-around babetron has the ’90s fly girl aesthetic on lock. We asked her to curate a super glam holiday wishlist so we can get a teeny tiny peek into her Beyonce-inspired lifestyle.
