I wanted to style some of the pieces with my own clothing as well, to show you guys how I would integrate the pieces into my own wardrobe. To make things less confusing I made a collage of the seven pieces from the capsule, so you can see the collection standing alone.

I moved to Los Angeles a little over ten years ago, but mentally I’ve been here my whole life. When I think about a brand who embodies this city, Stone Cold Fox is one of the first collections that resonates. Not completely sure if it’s just me, or if everything feels this way, but everything in my life really comes full circle.
I’ve lost complete track of timing but I remember way, way, way before I started my blog shopping Stone Cold Fox pieces online and during their samples sales, when sample sales were more of a rare thing for a smaller brand that wasn’t so corporate. Life is crazy, how I remember seeing the girls, Cydney and Dallas at the sample sales and taking notes on how much I loved what they were doing and respected their business. They have grown their business insanely since then, and I still remember SCF being one of the first brands to see all over instagram/social media. Years ago I used to get all my inspo. from the blog http://www.theyallhateus.com/. Stone Cold Fox was all over that blog, memories!……. Years later if you told me I would be working on a capsule with Cyd and Dallas, that would have sounded crazy, but also my life is very full circle so I guess it makes some sense. Anyway- I feel really lucky to have worked with such inspiring and talented women, Cyd and Dallas on this collection that embodies California style.
Our Holiday 17’ capsule collection started as part of their fall collection, then we realized the pieces were drifting more toward this season’s social scene, and at the same time being perfect for Tulum or any warmer destination this winter. Which also makes perfect sense, seeing as the collection has so much California blood, and I can speak for someone in LA- we like going to dinner with a bottle(s) of wine during the holiday season, then when we can’t hack 60 degrees (too cold), we run away to beach somewhere warmer. The collection somehow fits into a winter “Holiday” and warmer “Resort” state of mind.
Marvin Restaurant in Los Angeles is one of the most popular go-to spots for an exceptional bottle of wine- my favorite, which is very hard to find- Contadino, pasta, Comte (bomb cheese), and a warm atmosphere that is very desirable. We shot the collection at Marvin. Also, named so many of the pieces after anything that seemed to fit into evening social hour. My favorite piece from the collection is the “On The Rox Bolero Jacket”. The piece has a cropped fit and the fabric is a houndstooth print that to me, feels like modern day vintage. Another piece in the collection that really feels like an extension of my style meshed with the girl’s traditional SCF collection is the “Reservation Robe”. I LOVE a floor length silk robe that feels like a luxurious version of something I would wear around my house. This emerald green silk robe is the one. The “La Brea Crop” can be worn as a set with the matching “Isla Trousers” or on its own, and comes in solid emerald as well. Having a set included in this capsule was important since I love suiting and print on print matching. Lastly, we designed an A-Line mini dress with an oversized collar available in white or olive/black stripes. Both solid options for holiday with shimmer tights or chunky socks and heels. Also- into the idea of wearing one of the dresses with jeans or trousers. When I think about my capsule with SCF I think about Marvin and what girls like to wear when they’re in the company of friends. A hybrid of trying and comfort. I think our collection is exactly that. Looking and feeling good at the same time.
I styled some of the pieces from my capsule alongside my own wardrobe to give everyone a better idea of how I would integrate the collection into my life this season.
