I adore this Angel Wildfox top that came as a surprise to me in the mail from my good friend, Justin Markin. We used to both live in Chicago together, where he owned the best art gallery in Wicker Park. But now, you can find him chilling at his beautiful house in Los Angeles and shooting models on film. If you're looking to shoot with an amazing photographer in LA, I highly recommend hitting him up on facebook! He's awesome at styling, I have a shoot coming to the blog from fashion week that we shot at the Ace Hotel. He styled myself and my best friend in some really cool vintage pieces! He thrifts almost full time as well, and I'm excited to see what he does with everything, his collection of vintage is getting quite amazing!

It's so wonderful to grow up around so many beautifully creative and talented friends. I feel so blessed to be solely surrounded by artists on a daily basis.

Much love

The Ace Hotel

by Rachel Lynch in


IMG_6004IMG_6018IMG_6019IMG_60201200There were a few pieces that I had sent to me for Fashion Week that I didn't get a chance to wear. This teal dress from Missguided is one of them. I really love the cut of the top, probably my favorite part of the dress aside from the color. I decided to pair it with a bunch of my weird alien rings and a simple gold charm necklace.

I enjoyed an afternoon coffee at the Ace Hotel in the West Village. It's really such a lovely place to just hang and work.

Saturday calls for a mix of fancy/casual. I decided to pair this ulta simple Nasty Gal dress with dark coffee-colored accents, my awesome Paul's Boutique bag and this Kate Moss-inspired faux-fur coat. There's something about this look that feels very summer turning into fall. I'd don't know about your closet, but mine is a mix of brining the fall furs in, yet still in love with some of my simple summer pieces. The weather is allowing for this closet confusion, so I'm not too stressed about it.

I'm excited for this weekend, I'm doing two shoots for some big brands, then Monday I'm heading to South Carolina for the first time. Holding onto summer vibes for as long as possible.

I HATE BLONDE IN NYLON JAPAN

by Rachel Lynch in ,


I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate Blonde I Hate BlondeI am happy to announce that these photos Brittanny shot of me are this month's NYLON Japan! They wanted to do a feature on my "character" obsession which is Barbie, of course. Pictured is my Barbie backpack, that I actually take to yoga and acting class with me daily. I also have a variety of Barbie mugs at home that I use for tea! I've been obsessed with Barbie since I was a little girl and she's definitely a huge style inspiration for me! I remember going to target and feeling so excited to get new dolls with my Mom! My sisters and I used to have a Barbie room in the basement, where we all had our big Barbie Dream Houses and families, and cars, and clothes! It was like a little magical world of our own.

Anyways, hope you guys enjoy and pick up a copy if you can! This is my second time in the Nylon Japan magazine and I look forward to so many more project with them and their killer kawaii aesthetic!

We sipped champagne in the afternoon and just talked about everything. It's days like that which remind me how lucky I am to have loyal friends in a big and sometimes scary city like New York. No matter what happens, I know they have my back and I have theirs.

And speaking of loyalty, one brand I feel very close to, Chi Flo, sent me this dope leotard the other week. I actually love that it has long sleeves, I plan on wearing it to yoga now that it's actually getting colder. My yoga studio is in Soho, so this leo will be nice and cozy to wear under my leather jacket on the subway ride there! Of course it could also be very cool to wear on a night out with leather pants and a stud choker.

I hope you all have a really awesome Monday, I'm off to get ready for a shoot in the West Village!

I'm so excited to turn up and spend some time with my friends. Tonight, I'm excited to hit a rooftop party hosted by one of my photographer friends in Williamsburg. And Sunday, I'm shooting a little something special for YRU shoes with my girl Jen that I'm really stoked about. Should be a really dope weekend. I've been taking things a little bit easy since fashion week ended, but now it's time to grind.

Have a good weekend bitches

Where mute memories start talking. The boss that couldn't help but hurt you. And the pretty thing he made desert you. I'm going out like a baby. A naive unsatisfiable baby. Grabbing onto whatever's around. For the soaring high or the crushing down.

Hidden cracks that don't show. But that constantly just grow. You beat it in me, that part of you. But I'm gonna split us back into. Tired living in a cloud. If you're gonna say shit now, you'll do it out loud.

It's 2:45 in the morning. Waking up in an unknown place. Fade to black. Been pushed away and I'll never come back."

I wanted to stick with my black + white/mod vibes. The night before a giant box of YRU shoes arrived at my door, so of course I had to rock a pair. I really love these zip up black platforms. They're super comfortable and can match with just about anything. The last day of fashion week was also the final day I did my instagram takeover for Zero UV, so of course I had to rock a pair of their sunnies. I also pulled my UNIF neoprene jacket and Paul's boutique bag to create my Mod-in-London look.

Shooka and I took the day pretty easy, aka we were basically over it. We hung at the Ace Hotel with our friend, sipped on some champagne and ate a fancy restaurant before heading to a party at the James Hotel. Having my best friend there really made it amazing! Shooka and I are sad we're not at London Fashion Week right now, but best believe you will be seeing us there next year. I'm actually thinking of heading to London next month or the following one just to check it out and visit some of the brands I work with there. I've only been to Paris (where I did a year of school) and actually never made it to London. I'm super exciting to see it/ this black and white mod look featuring two London-based clients of mine was really inspiring for the day-dreamings of a trip!

NYFW was amazing as always. I was surrounded by so many wonderful and talented friends, which really makes it beautiful.

She rose and stood bright in the glimmering sun. She became a silent movie. Slow motion, the heart never forgets. The words fought to jump from her lips, the beaming syllables were practically ready to spill from her tongue. She danced to Elliot Smith and let it all slide under her skin. She kept it all in. If only she knew, that one day it would be too much. One day, it would pour from every essence of her being. Truths have a way of revealing themselves, one way or another.

NYFW DAY THREE

by Rachel Lynch in , ,


SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCThe third day of fashion week was spent almost entirely at the Dream Hotel. I was feeling the mod vibes (and the lazy vibes) again so I decided to go with an all black and white outfit. I figured these Jeffrey Campbell thigh-high boots would be the perfect thing to compliment my new Missguided romper. I felt like a little mod doll and spent the afternoon sipping a margarita and eating delicious guacamole at the Dream Hotel.

I also figured it was the perfect day to pull out my new Paul's Boutique bag. They were kind enough to sponsor Shooka and I for fashion week. I adore the shape and color of this bag. I also though the orange offered a cool pop of color into the look.

I had a great evening out, hitting about four different events and not getting home until three in the morning (ugh!) Anyways, Shooka and I also shot some cool film photos that I'm hoping to develop tomorrow and share with you guys soon!

1 kabir2 kabir3 kabir4 kabir5 kabir6 kabir7 kabir8 kabir9 kabir10 kabir12 kabir13 kabir14 kabir15 kabir16 kabir17Kabir says what you understand is who you are. Be patient and tough, a fire burns in the ocean. We care about each other because time doesn't care about who we are.

Living through much, we find what is necessary for happiness. Nature, books, music and love -- it fills us so completely. If you follow your bliss, you live that life that was there for you all along. Follow your heart and never doubt what no one is sure of.

"All darkness will vanish when you see the light inside your heart," said Kabir.

the chapter of the forest

by Rachel Lynch in , ,


l2 l3 l4l1I meet my Lord down by the river side. It hits me almost every time. Beauty runs so deep, that its hard to sleep at night. This is the chapter of the forest.

If you cling to the world then your death isn't far. All things will fade, just like leaves fall away. Now I learn from the wind and rain. The lion made the spirit strong. I go forth into the heart. Bliss all around.

You say, "Open up and live. Let that sweet love come in."

“And he absolutely had to find her at once to tell her that he adored her, but the large audience before him separated him from the door, and the notes reaching him through a succession of hands said that she was not available; that she was inaugurating a fire; that she had married an american businessman; that she had become a character in a novel; that she was dead.”

― F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby

At the changing of season, I always seem to find myself immersed in literature. I finish a book a week. Sometimes I like to think that I'm searching for a new identity, a new character to be to embrace the adjustment of weather. I'm about to finish Stranger in a Strange Land this week, gifted to me by a dear friend. Then I plan on reading Leo Tolstoy's Religious writings and maybe Franny and Zooey after that. I want to try to finish two books before fashion week, but it feels like things are already getting crazy. It's hard to make time to lose yourself in another person's story, we're all so obsessed with being the dramatic lead in our own lives. But I find that when I do take the time to read, all aspects of my creative life improve.
