Bard + Paul is a fashion & lifestyle blog founded by us, Ashley Bard and Arielle Paul. We see fashion as means to creatively express oneself, and our surroundings as the thematic world in which we can play dress up. It’s a fashionable life, after all.
Whether it’s unique locations, street art, delicious eateries or vintage nostalgia, Bard + Paul use these as inspiration to create memorable imagery and daring looks. Through brand and artist collaborations, we produce imaginative fashion worlds and stories in the form of lookbooks and creative sponsored content.
We began our creative work together on our first neighborhood-inspired blog, iechopark.com (also know as I, Echo with Ash + Ari) and have worked together extensively as photographers and digital marketing consultants for other brands and creatives alike.
We are always looking for new collaborations with both brands and destinations, so let’s connect! You can get in touch with us here. We look forward to creating with you!

Arielle Paul is a Los Angeles-based blogger, creative director and singer-songwriter popular for Amazon Prime’s commercial and original song, “You and Me.” She just released her new EP, “Everyday, Every Way” in Tokyo, Japan which is now available worldwide on Amazon.
An Angeleno native raised in a family of creatives and musicians — her father is a founding member of the Grammy-winning group The Manhattan Transfer and her mother is a writer and model — Paul garnered her love for music, writing, creativity and fashion at an early age. After spending much of her childhood and teens touring around the world with her family and working as a professional actor, model and musician, Paul became accustomed to the freedom and possibilities of a creative, artist lifestyle.
Paul’s lyrics, melodies and voice have graced the silver screen on shows such as Mind of Mencia, Drunk History and Ghost Ghirls, as well as on commercials for Amazon Prime, Sheba, Kirin, Mitsubishi, Glico and Hairtoxic. Arielle’s success in Japan led to the release of her EP, “Everyday, Every Way,” a collaboration with the acclaimed composer Hajime Uchiyama and released by Otoco. She has been a guest and performed on national Japanese radio stations such as J-Wave, InterFM and FM Port.
She is currently working on a new indie western album with her husband, composer Dan Gross. When not busy working, she enjoys camping and venturing new pastures in her self-renovated 1962 Scotsman trailer, bouldering and yoga, discovering vintage frocks, playing Mommy to her 4 cats and vegetarian cooking.
