I had the pleasure of doing an interview and a shoot recently with a local fashion brand Lia Larrea, we have collaborated on a couple of events in the past, and I was excited when Lia, who not only designs her own brand, but also teaches at the Academy of Art asked me to be featured on her blog along many amazing women entrepreneurs.

I styled a couple of looks from Lia Larrea’s collection for the photo shoot, the collection is very elegant and modern which is ideal for showing off statement costume bijou. The first piece I was drawn too is the reversible wrap skirt. The fabric is actually water resistant, and I thought it would be in interesting contrast with a lacy bodysuit I picked up recently from Zara. To me a look is never complete without a blazer. This cropped, simple style is a perfect juxtaposition to the the full skirt. And this skirt will be perfect when the temps cool, I can see  it with my fave oversized camel sweater, tucked in the front and Stuart Weitzman OTK boots.

Elaborate jewelry would not be appropriate for this more streamlined look, but I wanted something that stood out and maybe was a little quirky. I went with mismatched titanium earrings from the 80s, and  two distinct bracelets, a Ciner enamel giraffe bangle, and a glass white and black cabochon link bracelet.
To tie in the coppery color of earrings, I chose these conversation starter rose gold flatforms, from none other then Zara. And I love how they visually balance the volume of the skirt.
Hope you enjoy the interview and check out Lia Larrea’s collection of modern basics!
