People That Inspire Me: Coliena and Marlien Rentmeester

Image from Madewell's 'Day in The Life of a Fashion Photographer' article
Coliena is a well-renowned LA based photographer with style. She works for a range of clients including two of my favourite American stores, J Crew and Target as well as Fashion magazines Lucky, UK Glamour and Red (which is where I met her).
Not only does she manage to look chic constantly, she also juggles a busy working life with travelling and two children.

Coliena has a twin sister: Marlien (their names are Dutch), Ex West Coast Editor at Lucky Magazine and founder of incredibly stylish blog Le Catch.

What I love about their style is the laid-back approach to fashion. There are glimpses of expensive pieces, but these are mainly teamed with J Crew and H&M, they both have a fantastic eye. I'm not the only one to develop a stylecrush, Madewell is constantly featuring them on their blog:

Oh, and to make it a little more unbearable, take a look at Marlien's incredible house (MAJOR interiors envy!), as featured in The Glitter Guide:
