This is an especially uncharacteristic Style Dispatch, inspired by the blue rainbow hair I had back in October – which is the chief reason I bought this incredible dress. I just couldn’t resist the Rorschach snakeskin pattern, the kaleidoscopic color combination, and the sheer back panel. And if one is going to wear color, one might as well wear color! Amelia was in town from the UK and we were long-overdue for a photo expedition.

We set out with photographer Cris Dobbins and assistant extraordinaire, Yume, to commemorate the visit and capture some shots that were unmistakably LA. Downtown was the obvious choice, though whether my shoes were the obvious choice for long walks and climbing bridges remains undecided. Scroll for the rest of the images and outfit breakdowns!
