Style 70: #itsbanana

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 March 31st, 2016|Style|

As my Spring love affair continues on, I'm sharing another look in collaboration with Banana Republic! I love that statement neck scarves are stepping into the lime light. If you're an OG MELSANV reader you may remember this neck scarf from this post or even this one. It's definitely an oldie/goodie situation. And when I [...]

Style 69: #itsbanana

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 March 30th, 2016|Style|

Today I'm bringing back a style post to highlight a brand that I feel has really evolved over time. If you're no stranger to the Gap brands then you know Banana Republic recently upped their spring wardrobe game to include brighter colors, bold prints and beautiful fabrics. As someone who is always cold (always), I [...]

Editorial 03: A Natural State

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Beauty, Editorial|

I can't even type. I can't explain what runs through my blood when I have a vision for an editorial and Land EXECUTES. I often dream of these misty wonderlands. Where the grass is green, the flowers are in bloom and the mist creates water droplets. I don't know where my fascination with water droplets [...]

Editorial 02: Gloss or Grain

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 February 5th, 2016|Beauty, Editorial|

Whenever I'm inspired by magazine editorials, I'm always interested in the medium in which they're produced. Sometimes I rip pages out of glossy mags and stash them in a binder for later inspo, but then I come across the dark and grainy photographs that I wouldn't dare tear. Why? What is it about the way [...]

Q&A with Luis + Melissa: Video Interview

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 February 2nd, 2016|Advice, MELSANV TV|

Whatttt?! We brought back out Q&A sessions - and this time we recorded it! I am so glad #landofries was up for the challenge. He wanted this video to be DONE and over with because he hates being in front of the camera but I on the other hand just enjoyed every bit of it. [...]

Spotify Playlist: FAUX

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 January 29th, 2016|Downloads, Spotify Playlist|

Last year I loved collecting music and compiling them in these Spotify playlists for you. To tell you the truth, it sometimes takes me months to curate a good playlist because I spend hours really thinking about the songs and the order they're played in. Then I listen through the whole playlist one more time [...]

Wallpaper Download: Writings On the Wall

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 January 26th, 2016|Downloads|

Well my friends.. the weekend was short and we still have a full week ahead. And I don't care if you're into or believe the whole mercury retrograde nonsense but SERIOUSLY.. 2 blown tires in one week says I can blame the universe to my heart's content. Take it or leave it. And I don't [...]

Editorial 01: Find The Light

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:16+00:00 January 21st, 2016|Editorial|

One of my new year's resolutions this year was to produce more editorial content. Creative content, a collection of my thoughts, my style pushed passed barriers I didn't know existed and always with a nod to the thousands of magazines you'd find spread across my bedroom floor as a teen. You see, before social media [...]
