Get the Look: Erika Brechtel
When we interviewed blogger and graphic designer Erika Brechtel, our readers were taken with her “contemporary with a bit of glam, edge and prettiness” California style. The great response inspired us to start a new series called ‘Get the Look’ to give our readers inspiration from some of our favorite Girl Friday interviews. Read on for how to get Erika’s California-girl style and learn a little more about some of her favorite things!
1. What’s your favorite thing in your closet?
I’m all about Rebecca Minkoff right now, and my burgundy mini MAC is a key staple in my wardrobe.
2.Your favorite place in your home?
We just did a mini makeover to our bedroom, and for me, it’s my little sanctuary. It’s peaceful and calm and feels very us.
3. Most transformative travel experience you’ve had?
Our honeymoon in Italy was unforgettable. To be able to immerse yourself into the different cultures of Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan, and see all the art and architecture you’ve studied through the years was both enriching and grounding. I still pull from that inspiration.
4. Technology you couldn’t live without?
Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator – it’s the only way I could do what I do.
5. Dream dinner party?
Outdoors on a warm summer night, wine pairing multi-course meal, white lights in olive trees, firepit nearby, Bossa Nova music, crickets, 4-5 couples of good friends, several hours long.
Thanks, null, for all the inspiration you bring to us and our readers!
February is the month of love. We see it as an opportunity to create deeper connections with your loved ones and with anything that ignites a passion in your soul. We see it as a moment to appreciate the little everyday things that put a smile on your face. We see it as the chance to show yourself that hey, you’re pretty lovable and you deserve a little TLC, too. (And that’s always a good thing, no matter what month it is!)
