PACKED UP for the Hue Collection Photoshoot w/ Stylist, BT Marie
BT Marie undeniably has good taste in style and an eye for the unexpected, looking immaculate together. From her background in interning for celebrity stylists and now making a name for herself with clients like Nike, BT isn’t wasting anytime when it comes to igniting her passion for being a full-time wardrobe stylist. She helped make CALPAK’s 2019 Holiday Photoshoot come to life by being a huge asset in the visuals of the campaign by adding her own twist to our vision. She invited us over to show us how a real stylist packs and gets ready for a photoshoot; lists, moodboards, and organization are the keys!
Freelance Wardrobe Stylist
Fave CALPAK product:
The Luka Duffel, stylish yet practical, easy go-to piece for the girl that loves sustainable fashion.
Fave travel destinations:
Mexico most definitely. I’ve been to 5 major cities so far and it never ceases to amaze me. Astonishing culture, incredible food and views you just can’t pass up for a quick 2-4 hour flight. I’d go every weekend if I could.
Bucket list destinations:
Africa! Seeing the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt, Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, and the architecture in Marrakech. I could go on and on! I’m a true nature/animal lover. Can’t wait to finally make my way!
3 Things I never forget to pack:
Charger/Portable Charger, copies of travel documents, and my wallet
Last meal on Earth:
I’m a real LA girl so tacos are it! Gourmet, homemade, or just good ole street tacos from the the taco truck.
I love to reconstruct clothes. When I’m out shopping and I find pieces I like, I always find myself wanting to tweak it and somehow and make it more “me”.
Your hype song:
HOT - Young Thug ft. Gunna
Favorite travel memory:
Eating! I loveeee to eat. Food is an essential part of traveling for me. Doing my research to find the best places to eat prior to my arrival — I have a whole list ready. But my go-to is asking the locals for suggestions. Fine dining is great, don’t get me wrong, but I prefer the “hole in the wall” spots. That’s where the real deal food is.
Everyone should know:
I love to plan trips. Whether it be a solo trip for myself, family, or helping friends plan for an upcoming vacay. The planning that usually stresses most people out before going on a trip — I love. From where to stay, to the best food, and must-see places for each destination. Pre-planning for a trip allows you to maximize your time, although it isn’t necessary to stick to a strict itinerary. I have a vacay blog coming soon, be on the lookout!
What kind of packer are you:
I’ve grown into an organized packer over the years. The more I travel, the better I get at it. It takes time to master and it’s definitely saved me a lot of baggage overage fees. Packing efficiently is key, bring the necessary things so you don’t find yourself brining the “just in case” options.
