We caught up with model Rachel Yampolsky, the sun-kissed cutie in our latest Venice Bitchin’ editorial. Off duty, the West Coast beauty (by way of Tuscon, Arizona) fully emerges herself in the outdoors- early morning hikes, lounging on the beach with friends and mastering the waves. Rachel shared her camera-ready wardrobe basics and essentials for a picture-perfect summer.
How do you kick start your morning routine?
Coffee!!! I usually wake up early and hike Griffith or Runyon.
Describe life on the West Coast.
I'm fairly new to the West Coast, but I love it here! I've had a lot of fun learning how to surf and hanging out at the beach almost everyday with my friends.
Favorite place to find amazing vintage threads?
There's a lot of great vintage shops in Los Feliz.
What completes your off-duty look?
Leather leather leather!! I just like to be comfortable so tank tops or t-shirts and leggings with my favorite leather jacket and no make up!
Essentials for a crazy, sexy, cool Summer.
My Chanel perfume, beach babe texturizing sea salt spray for my hair, bikini, beach, camera, Steve Madden sunglasses, and my best friends!
