I've been thinking about starting a new regular feature for my blog for a while and I decided it would be fun to go to stylish and inspiring people's houses, check out their closets, and photograph them wearing their favorite stuff. It's always to fun to check out other people's closets, right? What do you guys think, sound fun?
So I started with my dear friend Heather Taylor. I know many of you already know her through her cozy blog LA in bloom. She is the Co-owner and Director of Taylor De Cordoba, a writer for Huffington Post and Daily Candy, an amazing cook and fundraiser. Also she's one of the most stylish people I know.
Ok, let's talk about her closet. It's full of beautiful stuff from Gap to Prada. Also it's like vintage heaven. I love how she wears big colorful statement accessaries and isn't afraid of taking risks. Whether she's going casual at a cafe for lunch or totally glammed up for a fancy occasion she always looks effortlessly amazing. Anyway I had so much fun doing the shoot with Heather. Enjoy Heather Taylor's closet & interview. ; )
