I have been working on a few commissioned fashion brands, which I can’t talk about until published, like this collaboration during Fashion month (week) with BOXYCHARM. I created three illustrations that debuted on their instagram account (@Boxycharm) one every friday of the month of September.
The theme was Runway Ready, showing my girls in the front row and living the lifestyle of the most coveted it girls in NYC.
On several street style blogs, I have seen the denim blazer (or coat) as an upgraded and more formal looking version of the ever living distressed denim jacket. I love that this blazer version, can be worn to transition from summer to fall, specially in Miami (where we don’t really have seasons) it can be worn without layering. I wore it with an all white basics like I did with with skinnies and a silky tank, but it could also go well with a short dress under it.
I also accessorized it with a super cute Agate long necklace that local web shop Amoura Designs sent me this handcrafted necklaced made in Egypt.
I have a few pics I haven’t posted so I decided to clean the roll and start posting. I wore this outfit for a cocktail party at Soho Beach House in Miami Beach. This blue slip dress from Acacia Swimwear has been a life saver, as it can be worn pretty much for any occasion. I have dressed it up with pearls and pumps (like on this post), dressed down with flats or sandals or simply worn as a beach coverup.
This is another of the outfits that I wore around New York City. Once again I was meeting friends for a picnic at the park, but this time at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.
I had bought this printed dress from H&M CONSCIOUSline, thinking that I truly don’t own dresses with so busy prints, but it was on sale so why not. I paired it with comfortable black slip-ons for walking and I did a little DIY conversion to my Gorjana lariat necklace, that I have been wearing so much lately (see here), by tying to the end a purple tassel.
I am venturing into home decor with some of my illustrations and decided to start selling throw pillows, they are available on Society6 and they come in indoor and outdoor fabrics and in different sizes.
I wore this outfit during a really hot day in New York city, as I went on a stroll thru Central Park to meet friends. One of the things I always pack when I travel are comfy t-shirts, they are the easiest thing to wear and you can layer them, dress them up or down or even wear them to sleep. As many, I have embarked on the search for the best t-shirt and I have some basic ones that I love, but this graphic tee is soft and expresses precisely what it is, so it does the job for now.
I have always liked travelling, the idea of taking a plane and waking up in another city excites me. Since becoming single I have always dreaded the idea of travelling by myself. But don’t get me wrong I love my time alone it gives me time to think, but for me usually travel included a companion.
Living the fear behind I booked a plane ticket to NYC. I know this city well, so it felt like home. Walking up and down Madison Ave, I did a little shopping, I reconnected with a few friends that I haven’t seen in a while, I had a nice meal at a trendy restaurant by myself and went to the MET to see a fashion exhibit.
With all and all I got over the fear of travelling alone and I have already booked my next flight.
While cleaning out my closet over the weekend I noticed that I have a bunch of little black dresses, many that I don’t wear anymore, like this paneled one from BCBGMAXAZRIA. I had forgotten I had this dress, it was one of my favorite ones when I got it a few years ago. But re-descovering that old dress in the darkest corner of the closet made me happy and I’m giving it another spin in life.
