If you're as addicted to fashion blogs as we are, then you know Rumi Neely of FashionToast.com. With her expert eye in high-low dressing and street-style photography, the San Diego-based blogger has become a go-to source for style inspiration.
Neely's blog has become a daily read for fashionophiles all over the world ? including Esteban Cortazar of Emanuel Ungaro. Not only did Cortazar invite Neely to sit front row during his Fall '09 fashion show, he even scheduled her in for a personal fitting. "When I got the email saying he was a fan, I was floored!" says Neely. Fashion Toast has also opened other doors for Neely, like a highly coveted modeling campaign for RVCA.
For our spring style guide, Neeley styled and modeled 12 looks that play on her casual, effortless chic.
She layers bodysuits, adds crop tops, and shows us how to pair little black booties with almost everything. In addition to her amazing styling abilities, we also found out she is an outstanding violinist ? she's been playing all her life!
