la street style; style crush; la fashion photos; los angeles street style; los angeles fashion stylist olesya


Recently I’ve been spotting such stylish people on the streets, from the girl who delivers my Thai food to the fashionable ladies and gents at events. I’d love to share their inspiring real-girl (or guy!) style with you, so I’m kicking off a new feature on kellygolightly called Style Crush. Our first style crush was spotted last weekend while I was cake-tasting with friends at Vanilla Bake Shop. I love how she paired her bright vintage Mexican embroidered dress with Ray-Bans, cool studded flat sandals, a metallic  long-strap bag, skinny bracelets, dark grey nail polish and casually side-swept bangs. Very Marfa-esque.

It turns out that our style crush is a fashion stylist (natch) and that her name is Olesya. My friend and I were so surprised because we were on our way to meet our friend Olesya, the only person each of us had ever met with that name. This Olesya was shocked too because she had never encountered anyone else with her name. I asked if she happened to have Russian roots too, like our friend, but no, hers are British and Italian. Alas… Isn’t this the perfect outfit for Saturday cupcake-eating and shopping? Do you have a style crush on Olesya too? I’d love to hear what you think…
