Eli. San Rafael, California. October 2016.
I admit to spotting Eli and his family, and getting excited to see my people in Marin County. It’s not like LA or NYC where running into Jews wearing kippahs and tzi tzi is common. I know many cultures can relate to seeing your peeps, and giving them the “what up” head lift or the wave. I took it a step further, and actually walked up to this crew. One, because they looked so LA, and two because they were at my kid’s school faire, and I hardly see a full Jew, let alone observant ones – so I had to walk over, and do the awkward so….
Eli and Leah live in LA, and Leah has a fashion blog, redlipsandrose.com It’s a tradition for Orthodox Jewish women who are married to cover their hair -I love how Leah uses a cool scarf, creating a funky East Village vibe.
Such a stylin’ crew – LA is so present in their casual, but cool stye.
Leah making that Apple watch ever so fashionable and bling worthy.
Leah is my kind of girl – the Adidas soccer slides paired with leggings, aviators and a hair wrap – she has that Cali street style – as moms of young kids know, you need to be ready to run and be spontaneous, Leah manages to have her own style, while being able to be a hands on mama.
Love the hat on this kid…
Is she wearing Burberry?
