bunbunbook purple fur eaves jacket 13


I’ve been in the fashion industry for over ten years with a background in marketing, public relations, social media, design, sales and modeling. Born and raised in Newport Beach, California, I grew up in the sunlight and on the beaches with my three brothers, ventured off to the University of Colorado at Boulder and studied abroad for a semester in London. I moved to New York City immediately following graduation and landed a job as an assistant to the Designer and Creative Director of a fashion brand where I managed the PR, marketing, design and sales teams. I helped design three complete collections and was the inspiration for the line’s signature best selling jean (The Carly Jean, ha!) which graced the pages of WWD and many other key pubs including Vogue. I moved back to Southern California where my heart and soul resides and worked as a PR Director for five years. I now consult independently and continue my fashion journey through my personal blog, which is named after my bun but inspired by my beloved Grandmother Sylvia. She always encouraged to follow my passions and more importantly my heart. It’s amazing what a wise woman’s words can do.

If I am not soaking my face in the sun near the water, with a large iced coffee (addicted!), you’ll find me at Pilates (I’m a guru) or enjoying a glass of cab at my local tapas joint in Sylv’s vintage Chanel pieces paired with leggings and loafers. Oh, and did I mention I recently got married? Okay, it was a year or so ago, but feels like yesterday I said I do. Special thanks to the hub, for his unconditional love and encouragement to make my dreams a reality. I’m so grateful to have this job I love that I can share with each and every one of you!
