Style Notes: Love Sisters
Los Angeles natives Nathalie and Laura Love grew up with certain shared style predilections: a penchant for delicate jewelry, a love of Converse sneakers, and a shared admiration for their friend Dylan Kawahara’s cool looks. Now on separate coasts—a ballet dancer and model, Laura has taken to New York’s East Village; Nathalie, a budding actress, is in Echo Park, Los Angeles—the girls are making their own fashionable discoveries. Here, our December It Girls extol the merits of cashmere (socks versus tights), compare beauty spots (Valley Nails, Wi Spa), and explain how they’ll stay cozy this winter.
