Made U Look: Polkadots in Santa Monica

I still can’t stop thinking about how much fun I had in Santa Monica last month. It’s true that when you’re on vacation it’s a bit hard to have a bad time when all you’re preoccupied with is lounging around the pool, sight-seeing, eating, snapping photos and shopping! But still, for as much I travel, it was in my top three vacations of all time. A combination of the killer hotel, spending time with two of my besties, Gala and Mary Bee and riding bikes along the beach left me feeling excited to make things happen at home so I could come back and visit again as soon as possible. Vacation is good for the soul!

Part of what makes a great vacation even better is a physical record of those memories to look back on, over and over again. Gala and I are incredibly lucky that our friends, the trio of photographers that make up Made U Look stopped by The Viceroy for a visit and photographed us around the grounds (Kelly Wearstler sure knows how to create photo-friendly settings).

The Made U Look girls have a unique shooting style in that they use almost all film and even perhaps even cooler, each of the trio has a plethora of vintage cameras around their neck, switching it up as they go. This results in a HUGE variety of formats and the outcome has the feeling of your favorite old scrapbook; each photo is completely unique in lighting, format and composition that makes you remember just how truly great film is. Some results are breathtaking, some completely unexpected but all are a unique piece of art in themselves.
