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!

Sporty DressUp

Being comfortable and fashionable is a luxury. I like to dress up, but I also like to feel relaxed, specially when I know I have long days ahead. I opted for a dress by Velvet, really hippie but feminine. New Balance Sneakers, reference 420 for a sporty-dressy look. Added some touch ups with make up, and I am ready for the day.

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.

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.

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.

Pastels & Denim

DSC_0729

I love to wear colorful clothes. specially in the winter to feel more alive. I think is really nice to give a pop of color to these cold days. A pop of color will do exactly that, without being too flashy. Specially in the winter where everybody likes to wear black and white. I wore some corduroy Joe’s Jeans in mint pastel color, a long sleeve shirt from H&M, suede Dolce Vita booties and my fave turquoise beanie hat.

Camo Obsessed!

20131217-142649.jpg

So the latest trend that I am loving, is wearing Camo with Denim. This cameo pants are fab. They are perfectly fitted to my body. A little bit Capri with zippers on each side, so you can wear them zipped or unzipped depending on the shoes you want to combined them with. This amazing cameo pants are from UO. Yeah, one of my favorite stores ever. I’m wearing a denim jacket from Levi’s with a black top underneath from Lucky Brand. My shoes are from Kimchi. They are suede green in the front and black patent leather in the back. This flats are super comfy and they match my camos just right. 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)
