Visit to the Benefit Cosmetics Headquarters!!

I had the oppurtunity to visit the Benefit Cosmetics headquarters in San Francisco, a.k.a 'Beauty Heaven.' My good friend Mac Witmer is interning there and she invited me to come visit her at the offices. The bubblegum pink walls, glitzy chandeliers, endless amounts of makeup, and basically girly everything made my jaw drop when I entered. It felt so surreal! On top of that,everyone was so warm, polite, and friendly, and greeted me with a smile on their faces! This weekend I went out and purchased the Posietint Cheek and Lip Stain, and They're Real mascara that Mac mentioned and I fell in love! Mac took me on a tour of the office, and below are the pics! : )

LOVE the lounge...so girly & pink!!

Rachel's Personal Styling Buisness

☮ SF Indie Mart ☮

LOOK OF THE DAY (7.24.11): Went to the SF Indie Mart so I was inspired to wear something Indie. I pulled out of my closet this white lace, vintage inspired dress, neutral accesories, and went for the socks and booties look because I was feeling "Alexa Chung" inspired! ♥

My Current Fashion Loves...

Elizabeth & James Emery Blazer

The WHITE BLAZER trend has become a summer staple that is loved my many celebrities. It's sophisticated, and is a lighter and more modern version of a black jacket or wrap. It looks great dressed up or dressed down with harem pants like the model is wearing above, or shorts.

"The American Dream" Photoshoot

This past weekend I did a photoshoot at my friend Marylena's gorgeous Mediterranean-style home in West Atherton,Ca. My inspiration for the photoshoot was "The American Dream," and this house was calling my name. This magical, one of a kind estate features a sweeping grand staircase, huge stained glass windows, and 22ft high ceilings; a picture perfect setting.  The mansion has been visited by celebrities and notables from the technology, film, and publishing industries including Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Queen Noor, and dozens of others. For the shoot I modeled an old Hollywood inspired dress by the designer Nicole Bakti that I wore to my schools Junior Prom this year. I was fortunate to work with the amazing, San Francisco based photographer Jorge Moreno. He was a joy to work with, we collaborated well, and plan to do many more shoots together in the future! : )
