El Matador is the yoga class to Santa Monica’s frantic cardio workout. El Matador makes you work as you climb down the steep cliff (slowly, carefully) and down flights of stairs. But once you’re down to the tiny beach, the small strips of sand between majestic rock formations is unequivocally peaceful. Time stops here – and you can breathe, explore and feel free from the world. I knew I wanted to film a lookbook there, and it was such a natural fit for Neiman Marcus Last Call & I to work together to showcase some of their incredible maxi dresses and talk about their plus offerings.
