A Local Model’s Guide To L.A.

All the hot spots.

Grace is the definition of ‘down to earth’. She is an old soul, and a lover of vintage cinema, clothing and beauty. Her self-described style is “classic, romantic, minimalistic and French” and we couldn’t have worded it any better ourselves!

Her favourite thing about Los Angeles is “the wellness and health aspect of it. I really love the lure of natural beauty and putting more effort into how you treat your body from the inside and then you just glow.. It just makes me feel clean and wholesome and pure.” I mean… lets be friends, really.

Lucky for us (and you), we were able to catch a coupla’ tips (below) from the ever so angelic Grace Piehl on the spots to be if you want to be chillin’ like a local in L.A. Read and add to your next travel itinerary.
