Meet Chicago Dancer and Fashion Blogger, Dani McGowan

Amy Mokris

Mermaid Waves_15.jpg

Who is Mermaid Waves? I'm Dani McGowan, from Chicago.  I am a professional dancer and fashion blogger.

What inspires your work? I am so blessed to live in a city where I am constantly inspired by art and street style all around me. I have also always been inspired by high fashion and haute couture; I love recreating looks and stealing styling tips to make high fashion more accessible. 

What does Mermaid Waves do for fun? Free time is not really my thing. I love being busy and working on my latest project. When I do have a free moment I am almost always drinking a cup of tea, taking selfies, and eating something fabulous. To me time is not to be wasted. I am always writing lists, adding to my calendar, and making the most of every moment. 

How would you describe your favorite type of style? My fashion style would best be described as street-style chic. I think fashion should be fun, loud, and totally unique to each individual.  I proudly follow trends and I am always down to try out the latest look. 

Do you have any hobbies? Things you do that feel completely separate from your work? Dance is definitely more than a hobby for me but it is still a complete escape from my fashion blogging and social media side.  There is nowhere I feel more at peace than in a dance studio.

Meet Parisian models and UN Human Rights Defenders, Maria and Pierrick

Amy Mokris

While in Paris, we caught up with the Maria and Pierrick, talented models and human rights defenders for the UN. Not only did they style a few looks with our timepieces, but they also shared some thoughts on the power of creation and the need for government to encourage artistic expression and freedom of speech. Catch more from our photoshoot below.

Art is a reflection of the state of the world. To kill or stifle the funding of the arts, is to deprive the people of their only means of expression.
The art of creating is powerful. It serves a purpose; it develops the mind and improves the human soul.
Freedom of speech and artistic expression connected man to man; it makes all of your ideas, thoughts and dreams a concrete reality. In so many ways, it’s a reflection of the soul.

Zoey Bloom

On the blog today, we're talking with our photographer friend Estevan Cruz. This Chicago local is a full-time student and wedding photographer, specializing in engagements, family portraits, and lifestyle images.

Le Coeur: Who inspires your work?

Estevan: My friends inspire my work mostly! All my friends are so talented and every one of them inspire me to do everything i do whether its take pictures, work out, dance or just be a positive influence to others. Crazy thing is that I met most of my closest friends through Instagram and my photography! Here's a list of my favorite photographers, bloggers, dancers and overall favorite people that I've met and befriended: Jeanne Grey (@thegreylayers), Joel Tucker (@joelttucker), Juan Riesco (@juanyworldwide), Maricel Cruz (@maricelcruzphoto), Anthony Trevino (@trevinoanthony), Nicole Mejia (@nicole_mejia), Justine Cuenco (@cococuenco), JP Quindara (@jpquindara), Shaun Baluyot (@shaun.baluyot), and Megan Batoon (@meganbatoon).

LC: How do you spend your free time?

Estevan: Free time is something I barely have during the school year or even in-general, but when I can I love to skateboard, hike, and spend ridiculous amounts of time at coffee houses!

LC: What are your favorite spots in your city?

Estevan: My favorite places to be in Chicago are Nini’s Deli (my all time favorite place to be, you'll see me there guaranteed every week), Lincoln Park Conservatory, and Lake Shore.

LC: What are some of your hobbies?

Estevan: I have a lot of hobbies that I can barely keep up with but I still skateboard, play drums, guitar and breakdance!

LC: What is your favorite Le Coeur timepiece and why?

Estevan: Currently I'm in love with the Toronto timepiece, the leather quality of the black strap is amazing and the silver face is essential to any outfit! But I have to get my hands on the Chicago chronograph timepiece!

Meet Chicago flight attendant and Instagram sensation, Taylor Tippett

Zoey Bloom

Today on the blog, we're catching up with world-traveling flight attendant Taylor Tippett. Her exuberance and genuine warmth are apparent the second you meet her, and we're so inspired by her creativity in photography, design, and writing. This Chicago-based lady has some serious dance moves and some seriously insightful perspective on living with intentionality. Read on to explore more from our shoot with Taylor, and get to know her through our Q&A.

Le Coeur: Introduce yourself! Who are you and what do you do?

Taylor: Hi y’all! I’m Taylor Tippett. I’m based in the babe of a city named Chicago. I adventure all over the world as a flight attendant. I decided to become a flight attendant in 2014 because I adore the heck out of people and I wanted to have a job that allows me freedom to do that in a really cool, different kind of way. I also am a really big aviation geek and love everything that has to do with airplanes. And HELLO traveling the world for free? YES. 

LC: What or who most inspires your work?

Taylor: The places I go and the people I meet/get to love on inspire me to the max. People’s stories are the coolest and most inspiring way for me to learn and grow as a human. Hearing where they have been, what they have seen, and being able to get to know them on such a real and deep level has opened my heart up and eyes up to see the beauty all around me. To love better and more freely. And that really inspires my work and the heart behind everything I do. Intentionality is so important. 

LC: How do you spend your free time, and what does time mean to you?

Taylor: My free time is usually spent involved in the things I am passionate about. Hanging with my people, adventuring, writing, reading, and getting myself involved in any activities that bring out my 5 year old heart (climbing, dancing, and all the whimsy things) are where I find myself. I hold my free time so precious because it’s really hard being gone a lot to actually have intentional free time. Time is such a valuable thing to me.

LC: How would you describe your style?

Taylor: My style is very laid back, tomboy, adventurous, and simple. I usually throw on a pair of my Levis with a plain shirt a cool hat and my boots and I am set. It doesn’t take much for me to really feel like me. I am always getting into some kind of a ruckus so I wear clothes that work for everything. I also really believe in quality over quantity so that really comes into play with the brands I support and how that affects my style and what I wear.

Le Coeur Taylor Tippett4.jpg

LC: What are some of your hobbies? What are some things you do that feel completely separate from your work?

Taylor: Eating tacos. A lot of tacos. Dancing all of the time and anywhere that I can. Writing for my blog "A Travelin’ Lady". Being healthy. Rock climbing. Obsessing over Justin Bieber. But for real. I love trying new things and I feel like I get so passionate about so much. I love loving and getting pumped about the things the people in my life are pumped about so I feel like I just have so many random hobbies and interests. 

LC: Since you're also from Chicago, what are your favorite spots in the city?

Taylor: Reno. Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits. Ipsento. Lincoln Park Conservatory. US #1 Vintage. The Logan Square Farmer’s market. I have so many favorites the list could go on and on. Chicago is seriously the coolest city. 100%.

LC: What is your favorite Le Coeur timepiece and why?

Taylor: My favorite Le Coeur timepiece is the Beijing. It fits with anything I could pull out of the closet and it works so well with my work uniform. It’s minimal and such an amazing piece that really helps all my outfits and looks come together. It is so important to have a solid watch, I really really stand behind that.
