Some of you who follow Kayture loyally since a while know that James and I have been planning to move to Los Angeles since last year. The very first time I visited, I clicked perfectly with the atmosphere and I knew it was my place to be. A place where creativity has it’s freedom in any form of expression. A place that gives me the motivation of all thunders! This goes without saying that I was telling many people about our soon move in the U.S! And guess what the common feedback I’ve heard was : “That’s so awesome!!!! But please don’t become a California girl”. Hmmm…. now what is that suppose to mean???
You know what : L.A has indeed a sort of an aura that makes you want to wear demin ripped shorts, and plain white t-shirts… So if that’s the definition of a perfect cali gal then I might admit that I’m a little in danger… You get in Cali wearing your little cardigans and high boots, you get out with a slight tan, voluminous hair, cozy comfy sweaters and leather jackets on the shoulders. Whoopsies doopsies!
So I’ve made a promise to myself that no matter where I go, I’ll always stay true to my style : chic, modern, sleek and casually elegant. Oh and above all : the higher the heel, the closer to the stars (muehe, guess you won’t see me in flats very often no matter where I live)!!
Although, isn’t it wonderful to be influenced by your surrounding? Isn’t it wonderful to come back from travel and having your clothes scented with the perfume of hot air coming from the place you just visited (my favorite is the scent of sun screen after a summer vacay, the best). Bringing back new inspirations from a foreign destination is exactly what makes personal style evolve. So that’s totally alright if yes you do pick up some trends from a different country you’re visiting (in Paris, I just always wanted to dress up like Emmanuelle Alt… while in Milan I just look at Anna Dello Russo and go cray-zay for her looks : give me some prints!), as long as the soul of your look stays true to who you really are, that’s what really matters.
That day, as we were walking on Robertson in between several meetings (so much temptation on this street, absolutely terrible… you have to check out the boutique Curve, one of the best clothing, accessories, jewelry selection ever!) I decided to go for an all black look. Something, I don’t do much often for the very simple reason that I feel like a pop of colors always look so great in pictures. But black is so chic, black is so timeless, we all love black don’t we?
I sure do!
