Backyard Delight

I came across this cool spot on Decatur, Ga. It is a very old antique shop with a very cool backyard. The shops offer all kinds of antiques and old finds. For those who love antiques like me, this spot is worth seeing. Located between the Dekalb’s Farmers Market and the
Anthony’s Pizza if you want to find different, very original antiques this is the spot to be 🙂 and also it was nice enjoying a nice backyard!!!INDIGA LEYIAH DECATUR_0178

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!

I love creative prints! That’s why I fell in love with this bunny print dress from eShakti. Is so cute and the cut is amazing. Love the neck strapless part of it. Perfect for wedding, summery days, picnics and even for a chic bike ride. I styled this cute vintage look alike dress with some UGGS Sandals in turquoise, sunnies from CRAP eyewear and flower crown made by me which you can get at my e store http://www.etsy.com/shop/indigaleyiah

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.

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!!!!

Strolling The Neighborhood With Your loved Ones!

20131118-140027.jpg

Walking your dog is one of those chores you have to do to keep your pet happy. I don’t see it as a chore though, because is also a healthy way for me to exercise. I get so much enjoyment from my walks with Emmylou because I know she is happy, and because I get to contemplate the precious view of the neighborhood.
I am Blessed enough to have a dog park nearby with gorgeous trees, streams and all kinds of animals: ducks, turtles, snakes, squirrels, birds, and many more. There’s no way I wouldn’t enjoy it.
Every time I see these creatures of nature, I thank the universe for the opportunity to be alive and enjoy such majestic creations.
Life is not always perfect, but it’s the way you choose to see it that makes it beautiful. Even in the darkest places, there will always be light. I encourage myself everyday to see life from a perspective of learning. No matter what you are dealing with in life, what really matters is to stick with yourself. Always have faith and believe that anything that happens to you is for your best interests. Even if you can’t see it right away or even understand it.
I hope you guys enjoy yourselves every day and enjoy the pictures of my walks with Emmylou.

Emmylou is wearing a collar I made from an old sweater from Free People.
I was wearing vintage cowgirl shirt, Heritage leggings, and forever21 chained booties.

Where Urban Art Meets Fashion II

20131112-185001.jpg

This is the second look of the shoot “Where Urban Art Meets Fashion”. I opted for a casual striped skirt by Abercrombie & Fitch, a baby blue shirt that I got for 3 bucks at a consignment store, a knitted navy poncho by Land’s End Canvas 1963 (perfect for fall weather), and one of my favorite leather booties by Gianni Binni (available at Dillards). You will see me with these booties a LOT!!!
This look  is classic but edgy at the same time. The combination of the skirt and the booties gives a fun touch touch to the look.

In this part of town in Atlanta, I found lots of graffiti and really cool artistic expressions. Wandering in the city is the only way you get to know this artistic spots. I encourage everyone to go and explore the museums, conservatories, botanic gardens, flea markets, art shows, vineyards, natural and recreational parks, petting zoos, and many more. You will find amazing things, learn, and nurture your soul!!!

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.

Vintage gypsy inspired look

Today I wore a beautiful vintage vest that I found at a local consignment store, the print of this vest looks like the one LV presented on their runway on Paris Fashion week 2013 collection. It’s pattern is small black and brown squares. I combined my look by wearing a copper gypsy turban, some inspired Lennon shades, black sheer shirt from BCBG, black leggings from target and the must have of the season: black chained booties from Forever 21. I also added a pop of color by mixing two of my favorite Mac lipsticks: cyber and rebel, for a dark purple goth kinda look. Tell me what you think 😊.
