It all started with a Malaysian love affair. Two girls, stuck on a train when they should be on a plane headed back to Byron Bay from Bali. But due to delayed flights, a skanky hotel and divine intervention, a friendship was born. More like two kindred spirits, separated by time and space and origin reunited by fate and faith and fashion.

I could tell right away the depth of our sisterly bond but never did I anticipate the limitless degree of our creative potential. We've been working hard throughout the week, prepping and styling a few different photoshoots for her new collection, including a Gypsea Love x Lisa's Closet collab spanning the full repertoire of Lisa's line mixed in with a few key pieces from my wardrobe (that I bet you have too!) for a stunning editorial style Ready To Wear Guide. Seriously cannot wait to share that one.

But  in between work we definitely had some time for play,  and as I should've guessed, Lisa befriends equally as beautiful, talented, and creative women as herself.  I felt so lucky to be introduced to more exquisite, soulful females whose friendships I now cherish and who inspire me artistically on so many levels. Celeste of Celeste Twikler Jewelry not only creates stunning, one of a kind "salty, nomadic" inspired pieces but is an incredible illustrator and her house looks straight out of an Anthropologie catalog. Spending time in her beautiful space was like going to a museum: everywhere you turned you found something new and inspiring and all you want to do is take a million photos! with an extra dose of cozy and full of loving energy of course. And Carly Brown (who is responsible for the gorgeous photos above) is yet another friend who came to play who, with her humble smile, discreetly hides a world of talent, experience and style that seems to flow organically and effortlessly.  And did I mention these Byron babes surf?! Talk about a match made in heaven. Together, the 4 of us had nothing short of a blast, and I look forward to so many more playful days with these rad ladies.
