It was a hot, humid Friday in Austin when we met up with three lovely, intelligent women who were in no way fazed by the weather. Adriana, Stephanie and Greenley are three students at the University of Texas who met at a housing cooperative that, once upon a time, was home to Farrah Fawcett. Continue reading
As you can imagine, it’s not every day that we have a tiny, bright-eyed baby on set at Luxe HQ. We approached Stephanie Hopkins for a Kendra Scott feature shoot after she won us over with her confidence, upbeat personality, feminine style and philanthropic pursuits. She even wore Kendra to her wedding! Stephanie models for the Austin Bridal Extravaganza every season, has graced local events as a Betty for Deep Eddy Vodka and owns a mobile hair + makeup business. Phew! But she’s more than a beauty. She is first and foremost a mother to 3 energetic boys, the newest addition being a 4-month-old sweetheart named Wyatt. Eager to know how she balances it all while remaining so radiant and optimistic, we spoke with Stephanie (and delighted in the company of a cooing baby Wyatt) during our photoshoot.

Meet Khouri Iziren, an energetic, up-for-anything kinda gal who moved to Austin to study Biology at the University of Texas. She’s all smiles, and her positive, singing in the studio vibe is the kind of personality we love at Luxe. Read on as she chats about personal style, Instagrammers + YouTube gurus, Coachella envy + the closet she’s dying to raid.

New to the modeling scene is cool girl Arielle, who appeared in our recent Spring Roxy Stylebook. She may be a pretty face, but working in the Austin music industry has a way of separating the delicate from the resilient and we love a girl who rocks confidence. Read on for the Q + A!
You’ve seen her in our studio shoots and in our Valentine’s look book and now you get the low down on this all around cool gal. Sarah has been a real trooper for us, especially as we’re just starting out on this big new adventure with our website + blog, but has also modeled for us in Austin at local events over the last couple years. She’s given us her time, always shows up perfectly polished and ready to work, and certainly knows a thing or two about how to work that face. So gorge! Plus, she was not afraid to hop right into that swan boat in 3 inch heels and pencil skirt– what a doll! ❤
