Kelsey Genna was one of the verrrry first designers I followed when I first started blogging. We actually had the opportunity to meet in person a few years ago when she visited San Francisco. Kelsey is a New Zealand designer who specializes in bridal and evening wear, so it’s a bit ironic (or maybe it’s completely romantic) that she eloped with her now-husband, David, in Ravello, Amalfi Coast this past August.
“We didn’t tell a soul beforehand and made absolutely no plans other than filing for a non-impediment in New Zealand. As you may know marrying in Italy is an adventure on its own with many hoops to jump over. We spent two weeks up and down the countryside of Italy getting paperwork legalized.”
Kelsey wore her own label, Bespoke, a service offering custom designed bridal and evening wear.
Why hello there! How was your week? You probably weren’t expecting to see me on here since I don’t normally blog on Fridays, but as I mentioned, my new blogging routine is to let go of routine and blog when the spirit moves me. And man, the spirit is moving me today! I should realllyyyy be working on a school assignment right now (oops) but decided to pop in here last minute and share with you this insanely gorgeous home I found while doing an Instagram power sesh last night. It’s the home of Karla Quiz, who is the founder of James Fox Co. I love the soft neutrals combined with the pops of pink. She says her husband doesn’t mind all the pink because it’s his favorite color! Lucky duck.
Karla has two absolutely adorable girls: France and Fair.
Okay, this bathroom decked out with Hygge & West wallpaper (and the cute dog lounging in the background). STOP.
I see a little bit of a South Florida (the wallpaper) meets LA (pops of pink) meets Palm Springs (the neon sign) vibe here but was super surprised to see this home is actually in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I hope you have a great weekend! It’s a long weekend for those of us in the US. I have a photo shoot planned with my friend Alina and then I think I’m finally *finally* going to see La La Land.
You know what’s funny? My personal style and brand is so dang girly and that truly is how I am as a person. I recently had to write a piece about myself for a magazine (that’s to hit newsstands next month!!) and I described myself as a glass-half-full-color-loving kinda gal. But I’m also a very introspective person who’s drawn to deep, feely things. I shot a fashion editorial two weeks ago, just got the film back, and man oh man, I was so surprised by how MOODY and MELANCHOLY the whole vibe looked. I had a vision of what it would look like that in my head, but seeing the final images made me realize I have such a dreamy, hazy side to me that my personal style/graphic design/illustration/quirkiness doesn’t know.
I was watching an interview with Grace VanderWaal (don’t remember which one it was) a few months back and one of the questions she got asked was if her songs always come out the way she imagines them. Her answer was no and sometimes the final result surprises her, but even so, it’s like the song was in her all along and it had to come out, she just didn’t know it. That’s the way I feel about my photography. I go in with loose expectations, but whatever comes out, comes out. Que sera, sera. It was in me all along.
