ABOUT ME


































(the-record)

I'm Erica Lavelanet,
(or as you might know me @ericalave) a New Yorker, Digital Communicator and Teacher focusing on building an expansive, shared-experience for wellness-minded, intersectional audiences through social media engagement and community events.

My creative career has spanned from fashion styling, to modeling, to generating content with some of the most notable fashion and lifestyle brands garnering a wide range of partnerships, features and clients that include: Allure Magazine, AloYoga, Amazon Fashion, Bebe, Buzzfeed, Elle Magazine, Express, H&M, House of Marley, Kmart, Indego Africa, L’agent by Agent Provocateur, L'Occitane, L'Oreal, Macy's, Marie Claire Magazine, Maybelline, Nars, Nasty Gal, Nike, Nylon Magazine, Outdoor Voices, PUMA, Pop Sugar, Refinery 29, Target, Teva, Timberland, and Victoria's Secret, to name a few.

You can find me on a desert hike or under a waterfall. Practicing Yoga, Ayurvedic Healing, staying the Course, and tuning into the power. In college, I exclusively wore all-black and flat ironed my hair arguably, one-hundred-times per day. Now, my life looks brighter and feels free. 


Between us, 

my Return to Love or decision-to-wake, started with letting the curls loose but certainly didn't end there. It's possible, as I know, to lose keys, a phone (or two), your mind, and love. Find them all, again and again, to finally find the balance. Which has lead me to some things I know for sure;
Choose love not fear. Always wash your face before bed. Don't sacrifice your style or sanity to fit in, it's just never worth it. Remember that what you keep is lost to you, by Giving You Receive, and most importantly 
Nothing Real Can Be Increased Except By Sharing. Henceforth, this blog and open-letter to you.

Currently chronicling this chapter, from the Hudson Valley as we build-out a new beginning and our Vegan Food-Truck - because after all, rice and beans are (really) what my bones are made of. 

Keep up with my daily romanticisms and 3am's. I have a lot. Just ask, him. 



Oh! And, remember. 
It's less about the outfits, more about 
the experience. Little to do with the clothes, more about how they make you feel. And, if you don't believe that it's always, all-ways, just about the feeling, then you're probably reading the wrong blog! Thanks for following my journey, you do rule.
