Turtlenecks Will Rock Summer Days

The turtleneck look is taking this "Tween Blogger" into summer.  You may have seen me featured in the recent  article for www.popmania.com.  Nothing like seeing Gigi Hadid and other fashion icons wearing this look with their fav jeans and sneakers.  The look is polished, elegant, and it is one item that every tween should have in their closet.

Retro is back and this look is paying homage to the much loved 60's staple.  The style is glam and has returned in many different fabrics.  This winter I seized many fashion moments in my  black turtlencek, skinny jeans and rag and bone boots.  I also layered the look with flannels and colorful jackets.  My fav place to shop for them were at www.americanapparel.com  and www.topshop.com.

Now Summer is right around the corner and I dont have to think of them as cold weather items anymore.  Between the light fabrics and turtleneck crops I have many ideas for summer fashion fun.  Recently,  I rocked the sleevelees  look in New York with black jeans and my white Steve Maddens. It is a timeless piece that took way too long to make a comeback.  Fashionistas, this retro look is here to stay for  summer and beyond.

Rock the look Hipstahs, you won't regret it...

Love + Leather

Can you yell Rock n' Roll or quietly say Boho Chic, I know I can. Meet Renee Tobias, who is a self taught jewelry designer.  She started her necklace line to to bring bold and unique pieces to anyone who wanted to stand out in a crowd. They are fashion forward and change the look of any outfit.  Recently I have been rocking the Cosmic Lover Necklace and it is one of my must have pieces from her collection.  Coachella is right around the corner and you probably will see me in the Cosmic during Coachella week.  Another one of my favorites is the Cross my Heart Body Chain which I have adorned with a few bikinis for my fun days in Malibu.

You probably have seen her necklaces at www.freepeople.com.  The collection definitely has a  free people vibe yet are versatile enough to rock with any outfit from a vintage tee to a long flowing boho dress.  By combinining mixed medias- meshing wood, metal, and leather with pops of bold colors these necklaces make a statement.

Visit www.loveandleather.com and you will never leave the site with out purchasing one of these 
pieces.  Find the necklace that best expresses you and tell them your girl Lars sent you.

Love + Leather Out,

My Top 3 for Golden Globes 2016

Ok, I am a 15 year old fashion blogger,  people may say a 15 year old knows nothing about fashion, but I am learning fast. My recent modeling shoot in Chanel Gowns had me dying for a future Red Carpet. So, I decided this year to tell you my Top 3 celebrities who made fashion statements for the Golden Globes 2016 held at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel.

My third choice is Jennifer Lopez wearing a gorgeous Giambattista Valli gown.  This year I love the beautiful capes that adorned the dresses.  The fabric of this was elegant and the train added a beautiful touch.  Jennifer Lopez never disappoints, and this has been my favorite Red Carpet look for her thus far.

My second choice is Jennifer Lawrence wearing a beautiful red Dior gown.  She is 25 years old and already has an amazing fashion sense.  The gown was beautifully designed with cutouts and the diamond necklace choker added the final touch to complete the look. When she walks any red carpet she is the essence of a true movie star.

My first choice is the beautiful Louis Vuitton gown worn by Alicia Vikander.  She made a statement tonight looking chic in white and pairing this drop dead gorgeous gown with dangling diamond earrings. Styled by Victoria Sekrier, www.victoriasekrier.com this gown was a head turner and she was glowing. She made a statement not only to the entertainment industry, but also a statement to the fashion world. The Swedish actress who is up for best actress in Danish Girl has amazing style. She is the one to watch for fashion inspiration at this years awards shows.

Here's to my top three for the Golden Globes

Flower Children Only- Kitty Crowns

Photography by Krissy Saleh

I can't let  2015 come to an end with out telling you about Flower Children Only.   Kitty ears have been the rage for many teenagers and women in 2015.  Ariana Grande kitty crown selflies have been adorable as well as Gigi Hadid sporting a pair of Meow Crown Green Ears  in her oh so amazing adidas outfit. Can you say obsessed?  Michelle Madonna has taken kitty and mouse ears to the next level.   Made out of beautiful roses, daisies, and sunflowers you feel like you are truly wearing a crown when wearing these hand made pieces.  I loved wearing my Meow Crown X-Mas Ears to a few holiday parties. My Meow Crown Black Ears have come in handy for many events and I have even worn them to dance classes.

This company is based out of New York . Every piece is unique and I must say that Michelle has become the Queen of the Kitty Crown.  Your closet is not the same without one of these accessories.

Take a hint  because Coachella is coming in 2016 and her Halos are amazing.  I can't wait for her to  custom design a Halo for one of my Coachella Days.   Shop the look at  www.flowerchildrenonly.com   and tell Michelle that  Larsen sent you. You can also visit her  on Instagram @flowerchildrenonly.

Peace Out Flower Babies,

#Inmyskiniwin takes over NYFW- Shaun Ross

The  #inmyskiniwin Campaign started by Shaun Ross is trending on social media.  This power model has starred in many fashion campaigns and appeared in music videos for Beyone and Katy Perry.  He just debuted  his new collection at  NYFW and he is not going away any time soon.  As a teen, he  has become a role model for me and many others that have different skin colors which make them targets for harassing and bullying .

Shaun  is making  changes in the way beauty is defined in our society . The #inmyskiniwin hash tag  has almost 10,000 posts on instagram alone.  Shaun says, "If one feels confident when looking in the mirror, then the negative words of others don't sting as much. Beauty is you and what you make from your confidence in your  own perfectly imperfect body." Now these are powerful words and so  to all you teens out there take notice. 

Above is my contribution to the campaign. This picture and concept was developed by Louis Flores www.louiseflores.com and styled by Ambrose Respicio.  You can purchase this Tee of Shaun's saying "Nothing is Impsossible"  at www.inmyskiniwin.com. Take a picture in your tee, post the pic to instagram and hashtag #inmyskiniwin .  Lets all become confident teens and show the world that different is beautiful .

#Beyou with Love,
