Ummm…to say I’m excited to feature the NAVEN twins ( Alexis & Kymberley McClay ) is like, uh, kinda the understatement of the year.
The twin’s clothing line, NAVEN, is uh-mazing.
I almost feel bad for introducing you guys to them because you’ll want to spend your entire paycheck on their designs.
Like, screw rent- it went towards my NAVEN fund!
Anyway one thing that deserves to be mentioned: when I met these girls they were the nicest, sweetest, most approachable girls ever. Like, ever, ever. So not only are they absolutely beautiful and talented, they’re nice.
Because let’s be honest: being nice goes a long, long way. It’s a lot easier to be nice then be a bitch.
Ok! Now enjoy this interview- it’s def one of my favorites!
+ Let’s talk everything NAVEN!
Alexis & Kymberley McClay: NAVEN is a women’s contemporary line born in Los Angeles in 2007. NAVEN is a lifestyle brand with three collections: The NAVEN Designer Collection ( $200 & up ) which appeals to a sophisticated & fashion forward girl, the NEON Collection between ( $100-$150 ) for that young girl who likes fun, flirty, & affordable seasonal trends, and lastly, NAVEN Casuals ( $100 & under ) for that boho, beach goddess girl that likes easy to wear looks.
All three collections have a large celebrity following such as the Kardashians, Eva Longoria, Julianne Hough, Kristin Cavallari, Katy Perry, & more. Check out the collections at here.
+ If you’re going to flaunt, what body part is most flattering in a LBND ( little black NAVEN dress )?
Long legs get noticed, so show them off at all times, but keep the rest to the imagination. Picture a sequin long sleeve mini dress with sky high tan heels.
+ Go-to piece for the change of seasons?
Transition from spring to summer at NAVEN has been all about a smooth move from neon bright to pastels. The Bardot Collection is the perfect way to achieve this ( now on promotion at http://www.naven.com promo code: NAVEN20 ). The Bardot Dress ( $144 ) & the Bardot Blazer ( $239 ) come in neon peach, rose quartz, ivory, & spearmint. Rock the neon peach until you’re ready to move to a lighter hue like rose quartz.
Peplums, cutouts, & color-blocking.
+ Natural beauty product you swear by?
Our motto for skin care is if you can’t ingest it, you shouldn’t put it on your skin, which is why I use Osea. Osea is a seaweed based, 100% vegan skin care developed here in Malibu, California. I use the face cream in the morning, the gentle cleanse then moisturizing oil each night on a clean face.
+ Most flattering piece of clothing?
+ Quick skinny tip?
Start your day off with cardio in the AM so that you keep your metabolism going all day & burn calories when you’re not even working out.
+ Favorite healthy snack?
Silly Vanilly Shake. It’s a family favorite alternative to a milk shake made of vanilla almond milk, natural unsweetened peanut butter, bananas, & a mix of frozen peaches, blackberries, & strawberries.
+ Cocktail of choice?
We try to keep our alcohol consumption to special occasions however, we love a Lychee martini from time to time.
+ Five things essentials for summer:
1.} NAVEN Asymmetrical cutout dress: perfect for a cocktail party.
2.} NAVEN Cargo Jacket: for the perfect bathing suit cover-up.
3.} NAVEN Knotted Wrap Skirt: to wear with my favorite biki top and bare feet at the beach.
4.} NAVEN Butterfly Twiggy Dress: for a casual mod inspired evening look
5.} NAVEN Knit Halter Jumper: to throw on for that beach goddess look
+ Spanx or no Spanx?
You own your fashion statement when you look confident and confortable, so whatever gets you there.
