Classic cars and a vintage sense of style is the name of the game in Davia Gomez‘s recent spread with Cake Magazine, and we couldn’t be more in love with how it turned out! This shoot features a set of photos that are purely black and white, refueling our passion for old-Hollywood and the sweet rides that once commonly dazzled the streets of southern California- how neat!

In addition, the theme of this spread is titled “Down the Road,” which can reference the always-changing course of trends throughout time. Fashion is constantly revamping itself, and with each generation adding a modern spin, why not take a trip down memory lane to rediscover our roots?!

Davia appears flawless in each shot, bringing an old-school elegance that is hard to duplicate. Not to mention, take a peep at all the amazing booties that she is wearing in this spread! I mean, Marilyn Monroe said it best, “give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Davia is totally out for world domination!

Last night was a night to be remembered at the highly anticipated first ever “see now, buy now” Alice + Olivia runway show. From the star-studded front row to high-profile Nieman Marcus buyers eyeing limited-edition pieces as they sashayed down the catwalk, the event provided powerful evidence that this new form of fashion commerce strategy is here to stay. Alica + Olivia’s highly coveted Spring 2016 line is a wanderlust fairytale with an elegant and refined twist– floor-length vests, bell bottoms, floral embroidery and delicate chiffon tempered by clean lines, perfect tailoring, and demure hems.

The show concluded with a surreal shower of rose petals falling from the ceiling, descending onto models and noteworthy audience members alike as Benet took a bow.

Among the models who walked, our girls Ashley Moore and Faith Picozzi were granted the good fortune of being featured beyond the scope of the runway and into the festival-wear campaign shot by Jared Kocka. The campaign, much like the runway, features select pieces from Benet’s Grateful Dead capsule line.

We’re keeping our eyes on several key pieces- particularly the Lavergne Asymmetrical Ruffle Layer Gown and the Chloe Embellished Crop Jacket. As if we weren’t excited for Coachella already, this line comes just in time to make our festival-wear wish list! Now, if only a festival fairy godmother could appear and manifest the outfits into our suitcases…

3 Secrets to Toughening up Spring’s Floral Trend

What’s on every fashion girl’s mind? Spring’s arrival and the need to refresh–and ace–spring style. Take florals, for example: the classic print is taking center stage this season, and it’s begging to be modernized. So what’s the trick to making something timeless look more on trend? The solution isn’t in your closet, it’s actually in your makeup bag. With the help of COVERGIRL‘s truNaked Shadow Palette and Waterproof Eyeliner Duo, you can tackle any wardobe dilemna. From adding a smoky bronze eye to winging it, this is how to add some drama to your look and take your spring florals to the next level.

Scroll down for tips on making your floral prints edgy, along with some serious outfit inspiration. 

WHO WHAT WEAR Tip 1

   Looking to tone down the floral print? Top off your look with an edgy leather moto jacket, like this one from the Who What Wear collection exclusively sold at Target.

 Who What Wear Tip 2

 Skinny scarves are having a major moment right now, so take advantage, because they’re one of the easiest ways to make your look instantly cool, just like a smoky eye. To get the perfect smoky eye, using COVERGIRL’s truNaked Shadow Palette in 810, apply Ginger over the entire lid, add Sunkissed to the inner corner of the eye, and blend the eye shadow in.

Who What Wear Tip 3

When you’re unsure of how to style your florals, just wing it. A defined cat eye adds drama and edge to any outfit. To complete the look, grab the truNaked Waterproof Eyeliner Duo in Ebony to draw a clean cat eye, adding a more defined winged tip with Sierra from the shadow palette.

When you’re healthy and fit, people can see it. Not just in your body, but in your overall vibe and energy from the inside-out. Positive lifestyle habits are totally contagious! Try adding more into your life and watch them catch fire. Before you know it, you’re smiling from ear to ear, working out effortlessly, and maybe even inspiring others to do the same. We can’t think of a person who exemplifies this kind of naturally snowballing happiness better than Allison Holton.

She loves to be active, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. She does lots of different activities regularly rather than trying to stick to one regimen on repeat, and she’s not afraid to try something new. For Allison, maintaining healthy habits is fun. She doesn’t stress about it because to her it’s not a chore; she just does what feels good. And we dare you to say it doesn’t look good on her.

Do you belong to a gym? Have a personal trainer? 

My daily workout routine usually consists of two hours of ballet classes at night. The class starts with intense stretching, and then we spend a majority of the time learning choreography. On the weekends I get together with a group of friends (that happen to be nutritionists/personal trainers) and hike or hit up Equinox.

Are there any workouts you’re dying to try?

I’ve always wanted to get into mixed martial arts. I tried a jiujitsu class and it was really tough, but I’d like to give it another go.

You don’t believe in fad diets. Why not?

I believe eating healthy and staying positive is the best way find what people look for in diets. I don’t worry about what my body looks like. My primary concern is staying healthy and challenging myself with a good workout.

What about dietary restrictions on certain types of foods? (carbs, gluten, meat, dairy, etc.)  Why or why not?

My diet is well balanced.. I don’t like to deprive my body of anything. My meals are usually small portions of different food groups.

My Fit Life with Allison Holton

SQUATS. I used to think they would make my legs/ butt bigger and bulkier, but that’s a common misconception. I recently got into lifting at the gym and I’ve noticed such a difference. Try it girls, trust me.

What’s your best-kept secret beauty trick?

My skin is really important to me, so I use a couple different products to keep it hydrated. I use Sephora’s First Aid Beauty cleanser and repair cream. Once a week I chill with an Origins charcoal mask on my face, and a Moroccan oil mask on my hair.

What’s the first thing you do to prepare for a job?

If my job starts early in the morning, I throw on an eye mask to reduce puffiness and redness.

How about preparing for a work out?

I take C4 (preworkout) before my workouts. And a mineral water mix during them.

What are some of your favorite songs to work out to? 

I love the Weeknd and Ellie Goulding. I usually just Spotify between the two.

You seem like you’re happy all or most of the time, what’s your secret!?

I’m super lucky to be surrounded by my amazing friends. We are always adventuring. Surfing at the beach, snowboarding in Big Bear, and walking around Disneyland is my favorite! I’m always looking to find something new to try out

What’s your go-to fitness look?

Yoga has the cutest outfits, but I think running clothes/shoes are my go-to. When I put on my running gear, I can’t help but feel pumped.

3 Healthy Habits that you absolutely swear by:

Eat every two hours, get lots of sleep, drink lots of water and keep active!

Words of advice for anyone who wants to look and feel good:

Make small, achievable goals each day and tell yourself you can!

Much like applying mascara while operating a moving vehicle, accessorizing an outfit is a combination of skill, the right products, and many a failed attempt. But the end result is well worth it: a basic tee can be brought to life with a bold necklace, while a simple dress is instantly awakened with the touch of a killer belt. And every day wear is given a dose of style when you have the right bag on your shoulders. But with all the choices out there, it’s easier than ever to feel overwhelmed – the classic gateway feeling that enviably leaves you resorting to your tried and true pieces. But girl, those were so last season.

Enter Linea Pelle to the rescue, a fashion brand that is anything but your normal accessories retailer. It’s infusion of Southern California roots mixed with high luxury design equals a uniqueness that will leave you feeling (and looking) extraordinary. Britt Koth showed us how it’s done in Linea Pelle’s Spring 2015 Lookbook, fittingly shot in an elegantly understated desert locale by photographer Troy Jensen. Britt looks gorgeous as ever in some of the chicest accessories we’ve ever seen, from a cream colored crochet dress that is transformed from day to night with the touch of a great belt, to the classic jeans and tank top combo that is given new meaning with a statement bag.

Read on to find out how to accessorize similar to our favorite styles from the shoot. Note to self: climbing trees in dresses and heels may be harder than applying mascara while driving.
