ABOUT ME


































(the-record)
The Fashion Philosophy, is 
personal style, beauty, and life(style) blog, 

written by 
Erica Lavelanet

(or as you might know me, @ericalave).

I'm a Native New Yorker, currently chronicling this chapter, from Brooklyn. A Chiquitita on-the-go who knows that running free comes with a price that's most certainly always worth the cost. You can find me on a desert hike or under a waterfall, somewhere along the Pacific Northwest, star-gazed, 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, 

it started with letting the curls loose but it 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. Some things I know for sure. Like, to choose love not fear. Remember to wash your face before bed. Don't sacrifice your style or sanity to fit in. It's just never worth it.  
Always say yes to jeans-and-a-tee; simplicity, 
it's the ultimate cool. Something about denim that feels like a return to home. Just like rice and beans are what my bones are made of, I've never lost track of where it is that I'm coming from or whom it is that I've loved along the way. 

Yoga enthusiast, (un)official Wine and Cheese Connoisseur. Keep up with my daily 
(mis)adventures, 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.

Take some time, slow it down, look around you.
