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.

Artsy Louis Vuitton Bag!

As a painter having the pleasure to put your hands on a Louis Vuitton Bag and create art with it is amazing. I got to combine two of my favorite things in life: Art & Fashion.
I had this bag for a long time before I was able to put my hands on it. I was hesitant, I didn’t wanted to ruin it, or even worse, I didn’t know if the owner of the bag, my client, was going to love it. But I set my mind, and my creativity started to flow. I wanted something bold and beautiful, edgy and sexy at the same time.
So I started walking around my house, to get inspired by things, obejects and stuff, when I saw the Rolling Stones Book, and rambled thru the pages. The ‘Licks’ Tour caught my eye. And well, hello to the new LV bag ‘Licks’ by IndiGa leyiAh.

Boyfriend Jeans

My Boyfriend Jeans

I totally love boyfriend jeans but i was not lucky when it came to find the great match until now! I found the most adorable pair, already with an old finish kinda look, and the perfect length and size. This pair is from Gap, but I got this babies at my fave consignment store, Alexis Suitcase for half of the price. You can follow them on Facebook,Instagram and Twitter @AlexisSuitcase, and find out about the latest trends and awesome deals this guys have to offer.
What I love about buying consignment is that each garment is very unique, it has character and it doesn’t scream new or newbie!:)

I matched up my boyfriend jeans with a basic black t-shirt from Forever21 and some cute
black stilettos from Aldo. Some gold and silver chains with amulets and stones, and off course my latest obsession, the No Wave’ 47mm Sunglasses from CRAP Eyewear. Added a Rebecca Minkoff bag, also from Alexis Suitcase, and this is the result!xx.

Early Summer Days!

We are finally starting to smell the summer. These sunny days are just perfect for a walk. For a festival summery type of look I wore an outback woolfelt wide brim hat, top by Abercrombie and Fitch, shorts by Anthropology, bag by Rebecca Minkoff and booties by House of Harlow. My sunnies are by CRAP eyewear.

Camel & Blush

This spring is all about blush crush! I love blush or pale pink and you can combine with almost everything. Blush is the new white, perfect for this spring days. What a better way to wear blush with some camel leopard jeans from 5th Culture, top from Forever 21, shoes by Superga, and my lovely vintage bag from Dooney and Bourke. I added round oversized sunnies which I call Alien glasses, and voila! Xx.

Instaglam Bloggers Party!

Last night I attended a bloggers event at Alexis Suitcase, a high end consignment store, very well recognized in the fashion industry here in Atlanta. It was a night full of fashion and fun. We got to shop the best designer brands at awesome prices and meet and greet with other bloggers around ATL. I have to say I was in love with their Louis Vuitton collection. From almost new pieces to the most gorgeous vintage suitcases, kinda like old Hollywood glamour. They carry major designer brands like Chanel, Prada, Escada, Bally, Salvatore Ferragamo, Kate Spade, and Gucci, to Michael Kors, Burberry, Valentino, and many more. Not to mention, they also carry other brands like Free People, Anthropology, Guess, Jcrew, and also boutique Stuff. It really is a shopping delight. You can’t beat their quality and prices anywhere.
Alexis Suitcase has it all, and their staff was really amazing and helpful making sure our shopping experience was the best. Cool music, hors d’oeuvres, drinks and models.
It was really nice to mingle with people who have the same interest as I do. We got to talk about fashion, take pictures and have fun.
I also had the opportunity to style some of the mannequins for the store, and giving my personal touch was definitely gratifying. I hope you guys like the pictures! For more info on how consignment works, what they offer and online shopping visit their web page at http://www.alexissuitcase.com and have an awesome shopping spree! I know you guys will love it as much as I did. Xx.

Flower Bound!

20131209-142200.jpg

This skirt romper from UO I gotta love! Very light fabric and soft, with a gorgeous vintage flower print, perfect to light up these winter days. Super breezy and sexy. Combined with my favorite and must have chained booties from Forever21. Underneath the floral romper, I wore a basic black top form forever21.
I like to add color to the winter by wearing my Russian red lipstick from MAC. Added a Swarovski crystal pendant from Oliver Weber, amethyst ring and my fave silver and mother of pearl bracelet to complete the whole look.

Mixing Trends

20131129-130753.jpg

Now days is all about Mixing Trends. Mixing 80’s with 90’s, different patterns, colors, styles and traditions, from east to west and so forth. This look captures exactly that. Vibrant colors, harem pants in a very funky print, cropped jacket in black, and sandals to add edge to the look.
Harem, or yoga pants are very tricky to wear, and they are not everybody’s cup of tea. Harem, or ‘drop-crotch’ pants have been loitering on fashion’s radar for a few years now in various guises. From combat style, to tracksuit bottoms, funky like mine, to more trad. I gotta love them!
Do you see yourself pulling them off? xx.

A Secret Garden!

20131127-131341.jpg

I remember a story that caught my heart when I was a little girl, it was the novel by English author Frances Hodgson Burnett. A classic story for children that never went away in my mind. I felt it was a very emotional story, and I felt a deep connection with Mary Lennox, the girl of the story.

I found my own secret garden, a beautiful place…..

…What was this under her hands which was square and made of iron and which her finger found a hole in?

It was the lock of the door which had been closed ten years and she put her hand in her pocket, drew out the key and found it fitted the keyhole. She put the key in and turned it. It took two hands to turn it, but it did turn. And then she took a long breath and looked behind her up the long walk to see if anyone was coming. No one was coming. No one ever did it seemed, and she took another long breath, because she could not help it, and she held back the swinging curtain of ivy and pushed back the door that opened slowly – slowly. Then she slipped through it, and shut it behind her, and stood with her back against it, looking about her and breathing quite fast with excitement, and wonder, and delight.

She was standing inside the secret garden.[1]

— From author Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden (1911)

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!!!
