Earrings I was considering buying at Nathalie’s store. I bought a different pair instead.

Last month, I went on a trip to New Mexico to document regional style for the Huffington Post’s new video series, the “United States in Style.” I went with the Huffington Post’s Style editor, Anya Strzemien, and our video editor, Andrea Cruz. We began in Albequerque, interviewing college students from the University of New Mexico, worked our way up to Santa Fe, where we stumbled upon a diverse cast of characters (including the epic Nathalie Kent who am in LOVE with), and eventually ended up in Taos. The trip was an inspiring break from the intensity and sometimes contrived scene-i-ness of NY. Below is a sizzle reel for the “United States in Style” series, which will give you a sense of our journey and the amazing gems we found along the way!
