Meeting Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman

Cutting right to the chase, we met Chanel Iman!

A few weeks ago Mel and I met up with Nora from Fashion + Geometry and her boyfriend Ryan at the Vintage Expo in Santa Monica.  Though I was a bit bummed to walk out empty-handed, I was stocked that we had the chance to meet, let alone spot, the model sensation.  Chanel was super sweet and naturally gorgeous.  I love her sweater cardigan.

Me, Nora & Mel

Wearing American Apparel cropped top & double zipper leggings. Hurley vest. Topshop boots & bag

This photo cracks me up, mainly because I can’t believe how much air we managed to get.

Thanks to Ryan for our mini photo sesh outside of the Expo and capturing our silliness and giggle-fest session.  Yes, I just said giggle.  Rarely do I use that word, but that’s what naturally ensued after several attempts at prolonging our hang time.

It’s funny that something as small as jumping in the air can make you feel jovial.  I also look like I’m 13.

Hope your weekend is as carefree as this photo.

xo, becs

    Ohmigosh I cannot believe you had the chance to meet Chanel Iman! She is gorgeous; and you all look so perfect together – an obvious indication that the three of you should be just as famous as Chanel is!

    Loving the last picture – so much fun! Happy, Happy Weekend, my love!! :)

    You lucky girl! Chanel always seems so cheery whenever I see her in photos. Did you get a chance to chat with her at all?

    And I’m seriously stealing your outfit. Those shoes! Did you get them recently?

    Aw, thanks Erika. :)

    Beth, we actually stopped her while she was shopping so kept it pretty short. It was just small talk and telling her she’s gorg. Haha. I actually got these boots from Topshop last year, so they’re not around anymore. If I see something similar around, I will let you know!

    xo, becs

    I want to pinch all of your cheeks, you’re so cute!! The 3 of you with Chanel look like you’re just hanging out, having a great time… it doesn’t look like you’re posing with a model at all. Says something about your looks :)

    I miss you guys! Are you going to the spring in2 summer event on Sunday? I probably asked you a bajillion times but I don’t remember. Text me!
