LA EN VOGUE

Vogue September 2013

Second time experiences can often be ever so slightly less thrilling than that magical first time, but not when it comes to Vogue. Exactly one year ago I was featured in the September issue and now, this second time around, I'm no less giddy.

I have a love/hate relationship with LA, as most people do with their hometowns, but excited as I may be to leave town, I'm always happy to come back. LA is my home and I'm proud to represent it.

WARDROBE METHOD

I'm on vogue.com Vogue Daily today talking about how I update my wardrobe. My methods obviously aren't for everyone, but if you're like me and don't like too much stuff, you might adopt a similar rule for letting go of one old thing to let one new thing into your closet. Helps keep the pile-up at bay, and guilt to a minimum. Read the article here. And you can still shop some of the mentioned pieces here!

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE


Here I am! In the new Vogue September issue!

Growing up reading Vogue and being a middle class nobody kid from the 'burbs, you would never imagine you'd one day see yourself in one of the world's biggest fashion publications. I mean beyond that, you could never specifically imagine why or how you could be in it, but I'm proud that it would be my merged love of skateboarding and fashion that would land me a spot in the most important issue of the year. 

Vogue contacted me a few months ago to work with seven American designers - Diane Von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, Olivier Theyskens, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, and Tory Burch - to create decks based on a print story from each designer's Fall 2012 collection. It was an honor to be asked by Vogue of course, but the greatest source of pride is being profiled in association with the sport of skateboarding. It's given me a lot so I'll forever give back.
