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

Layering With Artistic Jewelry

There is no secret that the greatest final touches for a perfect outfit is layering. Well, in this simple outfits I decided to layer with jewelry. But this is no ordinary jewelry, the pieces are specially handcrafted, molded, designed and created by a jewelry artist and artisan. Making everything from scratch, from getting the silver in small bites, melting it on clay spoons at hight temperatures, sculpturing the figures, cutting, filing, etc. This jewels are a piece of art, the real deal, not manufactured by machines. These are special, they have heart and soul. elAura Store, the name of the store by jewelry designer, Laura Jackson. I introduce you guys to this beautiful work of art. Get to know more of her work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/elaurastore also on instagram @elaurastore.

We are finally starting to smell the summer. These sunny days are just perfect for a walk.

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.

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.

White on Snow!

Everything seem much calmer after the chaos that three inches if snow caused here in Atlanta. After the storm we get a calmer feeling, and it’s beautiful outside. I’m loving the weather. Sunny snowy day. What else can you ask for? In these particular days I love to dress like nature. Pure white. I’m wearing my fave pair of Joe’s cropped pants, Gap top, Dolce Vita booties, H&M beanie hat, William Ras sunnies in white and tortoiseshell, and a Mochila made by our Colombian indigenous called Arhuacos. The Arhuacos are an Ameriindian ethnic group of La Sierra Nevada in northern Colombia. They are extremely talented artisans and they do from Mochilas to hammocks and jewelry. They are our treasure. Enjoy the snow and the beautiful view. 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!!!

No Sequins or Dresses for Chritsmas Day!

20131220-102037.jpg

So is no secret that almost everybody loves to dress up for Christmas Day, and I couldn’t agree more. But the fact that everybody wears pretty dresses and sequins makes me want to do the opposite. I love this outfit because is so different and that’s what I was going for. An embroided black top from Tela, harem pants from UO and suede and patent flats from kimchi. Added my Christmas red bag from Italian designer Valentina, denim jacket from Levi’s and Voila, this is the result. xx
