Sarah Engelland At SXSW: Part 1

photo1

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.

Cailin Hill & Ioanna Gika’s Adventure In Tokyo

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!

Put A Ring On It

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.

Why we love them: Aussies Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Dan Single remind us that it’s OK to show some PDA (remember their now-defunct couple adventures blog?) as long as it’s all in the name of love.

“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

On Tour With Kanye West

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.

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!
