Eshakti Goes Boho!

I have been shopping this brand since 2013, when I discovered it by accident. I was looking for a brand that would let me customize the length or height of the garment because I’m only 5’2 and I have to alter my pants and dresses most of the time. So I came across this website, and I found paradise. They have awesome prints and designs and you can customize literally everything.

They relaunched their website this year and added two more styles to the abroad selection that they had before, so now you can shop Contemporary and Bohemian. They also introduced new categories like jumpsuits which are my favourite and If you know me I’m all for Boho Looks. I love embroideries, flowy fabrics and prints, and being comfy, so I’m really excited. As I was scrolling thru their webpage, I am already falling in love with a couple of items and I want to share them with you!

SkyView

Autumn is leaving us behind and opening the doors to a very cold winter. Perfect days are the sunny days full of warm rays of light that nourishes our spirits. Today I went for a fun adventure. SkyView Atlanta. Where you can ride this gigantic ferris wheel and see the whole city. It was really fun and I had a blast! Truly recommend to do it if you are in town or visiting for the holidays.
I was wearing an embroidered shirt by American Rag, leggins by American Apparel, Faux Fur by Loft, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Corso Como High Knee Boots and Channel sunnies. Bunny cellphone case by Moschino.
Go and explore your city, it always has something new to show you!

Bohemian Vibes with Orchids and Spice!

I’m absolutely in love with my gorgeous ‘Olvine Playsuit’  from online store http://www.orchidsandspice.com This store carries  really fun, and unique pieces, it has a mix of boho vibes and retro style. The playsuit that I am wearing has a soft fabric and flows nicely with the summer breeze. Also, I am into a lot of basic and neutral colors right now, so this piece is perfect because it captures exactly the kind of clothing I usually go for.

Pulling this pretty playsuit was easy, I just added my fave wool felt hat, hemp wedges from Sam Edelman, and round sunnies from Vintage Clothing. I am carrying an Arhuacan Mochila, made by the Arhuacans,  Colombian Indigenous. My silver dachshund necklace is from a local jewelry designer @elaurastore.

I had a lot of fun shooting this outfit, it was a gorgeous day! Enjoy. Xx.

Downtown Street Style

Exploring the city is one of my favorite things to do. Museums, Cafés, Shops, anything that entertains me, I’m in for. Today I walked from Midtown ATL, to Downtown. Breathing the city’s air makes me feel alive. Watching the cars go by, traffic lights, sounds, the train passing through the rail road tracks, is like an orchestra playing to my ears. I love the whole vibe of city fashion: dressing up, mixing trends, watching what other people are wearing and incorporating it into my style. To me, there are a world of possibilities and creativity is at its best. I get inspired by everything the city has to offer. This is the look I put together to navigate the delightful city of Atlanta: Denim jacket by Levi’s, top and pants by forever 21, Dr. Martens shoes which I’m basically in love with; they make me feel powerful and tough! I wore a black beanie hat to give the whole look a gangster vibe. I loved this whole outfit. Xx.

Snowing in Atlanta!

No one was expecting three or more inches of snow and that for sure caused a lot of chaos. People had to abandon their cars and walk miles and miles to get home or to get to the Nearest shelter. The southern capital of Atlanta collapsed. I have never seen something like this. A whole city paralyzed, captured by the inclement weather. It was a wake up call for me to learn to be more prepared to this kind of emergency situations. Luckily I made it home and I had the opportunity to enjoy the weather. It was very pretty. The roofs covered in this white carpet and the trees dipped in the melting snow. I was happy to see the snow but it was also bitter sweet because I had some of my family and friends stranded in the inclement weather. Trapped with no food or gas. Hopefully the city of Atlanta would be better prepared for next years. And our fellows from the north can have also a bit more compassion because it was no joke what happened here. Hopefully everyone is safe and we all learn from this experience!!!

NY Street Style

New York City has it all. From super chic and expensive fashion like Hermes, to cool and cheap jewelry in lower Manhattan and the beginning of Soho. Street walkers rocking their trendy and not so trendy outfits, from see-thru leggins to theater and street performances. NYC is a Metropolis full of contrasts and fashion statements. Already you can see that spring fashion is around the corner with window views of colored clothes in yellows, blues and pinks. remember NY is one step ahead of you and it has the latest of the latest in terms of fashion. Not to mention that NYFW is around the corner. I really enjoyed my time here, exploring what this fab city has to offer. I wore simple outfits because I knew I was going to walk for long periods of time, so I decided to wear a pair of white canvas TOMS, some black leggins from Mossimo, a denim shirt from H&M and it was pretty chilly so I bought a leopard scarf in the street for 10 bucks. I combined my outfit with and a lovely, acid pair of my fave Raybans. And also some heart-shaped sunnies. This trip was for sure a trip to remember and I hope to be back very soon. Enjoy the colors, the contrast and the fashion!Xx.

Using simple and beautiful materials like ball jars, acrylic paintings and acrylic spray, lace, twine, shaped wood, candy, candles, printable paperie, and more.

I used a great site called ‘Wedding Chicks’ and they will let you print for free the invitations, monograms, table numbers, invites for the brides maids, and lots more. And the fun part is that you can customize your own colors depending on your wedding theme. I fully recommend you to give it a try. It’s a lovely site full of amazing designs and is all free!!! You can get everything else at your local crafty store. And most importantly, when you DIY, your love is the principal signature to everything you make and create. Good Luck on your special day, mine was unforgetable, like the Sinatra song!!! xx

Santa is Coming to Town!

20131203-140521.jpg

For the past few days I have stuck in my head the popular christmas carol: Santa Clause Is Coming To Town! The funny part about it, is that I don’t even know the lyrics of the song, and I keep singing it and adding different words that doesn’t make any sense. Of course it is because where  I grew up, Santa is not coming to town nor does he exist!!! But I love the song so much, that I just keep singing it my way: “You better watch out, you better watch out, Santa is coming to town” lol lol lol…..  This is my holiday outfit inspired on Santa! I hope you guys LikeIt and LoveIt and merry christmas to all of my dear readers. xx.

I am wearing a cropped top from Wet Seal, a vintage flared skirt and vintage leather boots from Menin Italy.

Vintage Glamour & Decor

20131120-131345.jpg

I was invited to one of my friends baby shower in Douglasville, Ga. Lately I am surrounded by expecting, and new moms. I wonder if I am next, lol!!! Anyways, I got to the  house where the baby shower was taking place, and Oh My! what a surprise. Instead of being super exited by the party and the whole baby vibe, I was astonished to what I was seeing. I felt I was in a movie set for Moulin Rouge, or a Dita Von Teese burlesque show.

This home was magical. I felt in a different time, like I went back to 1920’s or to a French cabaret, in a good way. The whole house had such an intense energy that you couldn’t ignore. From feathers, to pearls, intense red walls and ceilings, all kinds of jewelry, paintings, fabrics, antique doors and floors, gorgeous bathrooms, chandeliers, wall papers, hats, furs, mirrors…. I was enchanted by this magical place. I felt like in a candy store, I wanted to dress up and play like a little girl.
While everyone was enjoying the baby shower games, I was taking pictures and  submerging myself in this wonderland. I must say I felt a little bit ashamed of myself because I did not pay much attention to the party. Instead I sat with the owner of the house and chatted with her for a long time. Off course I had to ask her: Where did you get all of this stuff from? she laughed and said, let me tell you my secret dear: Goodwill and some antique fairs.
I must say that I already knew about Goodwill, but know I am definitely doing most of my shopping there!!!!

Emmylou the doxie

This little puppy dog is in real life my wiener dog Emmylou, I thought this little watercolor painting is very cute and perfect to be hanged out on those corners or cute spots of the house. I personally think that the details are very important.
