Dark Romance Style

One of my favorite spring styles is the dark romance style. It’s channeling so many of my favorite people and things. A little goth, contradicted with a little innocence, Saint Laurent, meets Stevie Nicks, bohemian meets western. There are plenty of ways you can describe this kind of look, but it certainly has a romantic vibe to it, and I love the natural-looking effortlessness of it, and how feminine and pretty it makes me feel. While shooting this look, I actually spun and danced around in circles singing “Rhiannon”. So maybe if you are planning to attend a music festival this Spring or Summer, this is a great look for that as well! I got a very similar dress in white as well and will for sure be wearing one of the two to a festival. Below you can shop my look along with pieces of a similar vibe to customize your own dark romantic look.

My Look: I paired this super affordable black maxi dress with these beautiful, drool-worthy Chloe boots that I couldn’t love without. I have been looking for a good pair of summer-friendly boots like this for literally a couple of years, and had no luck. Then I saw these beauties last month and was at Chloe later that day ordering my pair. They are a perfect fit for any bohemian babe look, but also can cross over into a rock-n-roll vibe, western vibe, or just a casual California girl jeans and t-shirt look. I threw on one of my “oldie but goodie” fedora hats that I customized with some satin fabric, and then finished the look with some vintage jewelry that I found at various places such at Etsy and flea markets.

I moved to Los Angeles 7 years ago for music but ended up in fashion. That's just how things fall into place, sometimes! I had always been in front of the camera, but I felt like I would be better utilized behind it, so that's how my love for fashion started. I started styling celebrities for events, then editorials for magazines, and eventually, major AD campaigns. My primary focus now is being the brand ambassador for Fashionisers, sharing my knowledge with the world to help each person be the best, fashion-forward self they can be.
