Meet the third muse in our ‘Meet our Mind Bali Soul’ series, Charlotte D’Alessio! With just one look, Charlotte, just 18 years old, won us over with her bronzed beauty and piercing green eyes. We knew right away she would embody every bit of our Mind Bali Soul collection and be a perfect muse.
This shoot was our first time working with Charlotte, and it was one of our favorites for a few reasons!
Now… a shoot with a green eyed babe and bikinis wouldn’t be the same without a corgi puppy. We invited Miss Chibi to join the mix. Emily Wang is the master mind behind Chibi’s photogenic talents and not to mention that she gets to cuddle her up every day!
Talking about bedroom goals… Charlotte’s white, dreamy bedroom was just the perfect location to capture her and the Mind Bali Soul collection.
SL: We love the beachy-boho vibes that your room has… The second we saw it on Instagram we knew it would be the absolute perfect location. I’m sure it was the perfect ‘I just rolled out of bed morning.’ Where did you get your decor inspo?
Charlotte: I got most of my inspo from my dad. He has really good style when it comes to home decor. All I said was all white- and he took over and made it what it is.
And action! Wait till you see how Chibi owns the camera.

SLB: This shoot we are doing something a little different, shooting with a Corgi! Did you feel like he was trying to take the spotlight? I mean, Cheebs knows how to work the camera!
Charlotte: LOL. Chibi was really fun to work with, especially because if he was doing his thing you knew the photo was going to be really good. However, if he wasn’t paying attention it took a little longer to get the shot, but i think deep down inside he was just trying to be cute and sassy, he knew that we had to wait for the perfect moment to get the shots! And lets not forget that for us to get the shots, it would cost Emily a few dog treats.

SLB: You said you’re a makeup guru, do you have any special tricks or tips? Your bronzed glow is always on fleek.
Charlotte: I’m actually so bad at doing makeup. I just love playing with it. But, I think less it always more. Don’t cover your face with makeup. I think the trend recently is to kinda change your face using contour and things like that. But, to just stick to your color, skin texture and shape is always the prettiest, I think.

SLB: As a Beverly Hills local, what are some of your favorite spots and favorite things to do in the area?
Charlotte: Go to Go Greek and get plain tart. It’s seriously my favorite thing on the planet. Go get it now.
SLB: Everyone has one… What’s your guilty pleasure?
Charlotte: I think playing card games and board games. If it’s ever offered I’m there. Haha.
SLB: From our Mind Bali Soul collection, what is your favorite style?
Charlotte: I really like any of the cheeky bottoms. I think the San Lorenzo Bikini’s bottoms make your bum look so good!
SLB: Lastly, what is one thing you would like our readers to know?
Charlotte: Hmm, probably that this was one of my favorite shoots because not only did I get to play with the cutest little dog, but I also got to shoot in my own bedroom. So a big thank you to San Lorenzo Bikini’s for providing that! ❤
