Last month I went home to Northern California for the holidays and spent time with my whole family. I live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in Northern California. I talked to them about starting a fashion blog while we were having Hanukkah dinner.
My cousin, Dena Rendlich, offered to be my photographer. She got her degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Photography. She is an absolute joy to work with. All of these photos (below) were shot by her.
After Hanukkah dinner, my uncle Kevin showed me a leather purse that he created. I was surprised and impressed to find out that it was 100% hand-made leather and hand carved by him. The hand carvings truly make it an art piece. In fact, this purse that I am wearing is 20 years old and it is in MINT condition. I saw it and I loved it. I have worn his purse with many outfits.
