Briana once sent us a picture of herself in her pair of Miista boots and it was instant love. We obviously stalked her Instagram like crazy... as you do. Look, there's nothing we love more than seeing our shoes on really cool people. But, not only is Briana painfully gorgeous, she also seemed super sweet so we emailed her for a few quick questions. The LA based model/actress is the kinda girl that dreams of her own farm with rescue animals - needless to say she lives and breathes Measured Madness. Our girl crush of the week! Follow her on Instagram
. Where are you from, where do live? What’s the one place we had to visit?
I grew up a military kid so I travelled all around the US and Germany as a kid... Tucson, AZ is my family home but LA has been my
home for the last almost 11 years. It's the longest I've ever lived in one place. Visit the Saguaro National monument in Tucson. Take a sunset drive through the mountains and saguaro cacti, then get Mexican food and margies at Mi Nidito. How old are you?
29 What do you do? And more importantly, what are you about (if its not the same thing)?
I'm a model and commercial actress to make a living. While it's a lovely gig it is just that
for me, a job. It's not a defining quality. I work solely to travel, see nature, help animals, take pics, have quality time with loved ones and to go on adventures. Do you have any people, bloggers, IG users or magazines that inspire you? In terms of fashion and the things that you do?
One of the few bloggers I follow is @troprouge, I feel her IG is really authentic. She has great personal style but at the same time I feel like she posts in a way that makes her relatable. I follow @erinwasson because her style is just too good as well as most of my friends on IG. @themagdalenaexperience takes the most beautiful photos in dreamy places. She makes me want to cruise around and get lost. @kellywearstler for interior design inspo. Oh and I follow a shit ton of animals ranging from pigs to pups to prairie dogs. Which designers or fashion companies do you like and why (don’t worry – you don’t have to say Miista)?
Alexander Wang for the non basic basics. Stone Cold Fox for a dress or romper. For Love and Lemons for their dreamy lingerie. Isabel Marant for head to toe. Zara for the high style and fair price and a little Free People for any Bohemian needs...and I can't help but mention my epic MIISTA boots! You take great IG pictures! Is this a good eye and a hobby, or is there more to it?
Thank you! I do feel like I have a good eye in the sense that I always try to notice my surroundings and see them in a special way. I'm mostly inspired by nature and beautiful landscapes but candid moments of humans intrigue me as well. For now it's just a hobby but I would love learn more about photography. If you could do anything in the world, what would it be?
I would have my own farm with tons of rescued animals, grown my own food, and travel around the world taking photos of this magical land we get to live in. Anything else you’d like to add?
