This past weekend I attended the La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival (considered the “Cannes of the fashion film world”), a 3-part, invitation only festival here in SoCal. In attendance were some of the most beautiful people, all decked out for this special occasion at UCSD’s Mandeville Auditorium.

I attended the event with friends Shannon Henry from Studio Carre Photographie, Kristy Swanson of The Nurture Blog, and Jax Connolly of Jax Connolly Photo.  I have to say that it was one of the most fun nights that I have had in a while, and Jax captured it so nicely with her beautiful photography.  Here we are on the red carpet.


I met so many wonderful people.  Brooke Evangeline caught my eye right away wearing a stunning dress by San Diego designer Nolan Dean Le.  Not only is she gorgeous, but also very sweet for agreeing to be photographed wearing the Ilene King Moon Phase Earrings.  These earrings paired so perfectly with the bronze tones of her dress. I don’t think you can get anymore eye-catching!

Another lovely lady, Paige Breon, wearing a gorgeous red umbre dress, is straight up rock’n it with our Shin Wallet Clutch. Great classic look with a touch of ‘edge’!

Here are some additional pics from the event…

As a San Diego resident, it was nice to see such a fashion forward event in our area! With LA only 100 miles to the north, we are usually overlooked 🙂
