How Did I Get Here? – L*Space’s Monica Wise

monicawise_corinnnomad

Since launching our hugely popular Featured Stylist program, we’ve been fortunate to meet countless talented and ambitious individuals. Designers, artists, stylists, photographers, journalists, models-each with a different story, but all sharing a common goal: To make a defying mark in fashion. But as lofty as their aspirations are, more daunting is finding the right path to get them there.

For world renowned designer Monica Wise, creator and owner of L*Space Swimwear, her tale is far from your text book example. In fact, some would say her journey began out in left field. But like so many other great self-made success stories, Monica’s underlying theme is that great expectations will always produce triumphant endings.

Get the Look : Giselle

giselle

We know that Giselle would look good in a burlap sack, but this is one outfit would make anyone look effortlessly chic. The contrast of a loose, flowy top in a rich fabric, and a super skinny jean is one of our favorite trends for the summer. The top drapes on the body, giving a subtle sex-appeal without being skin tight; a look that’d sway towards the hussy side if paired with painted on denim! Most importantly, we love this look because it lets us wear our skinny jeans even after a mid-day burrito and Pinkberry session. Freakin’ bien!

O’Neill Jace Top
