Sometimes I don’t realize it, but I tend to wear a lot of black, so it’s refreshing to switch it up and play with different color palettes, as in this shoot. I must say, one thing I’ve noticed about H&M is that they’ve really picked up their game with every new collection and lookbook that comes out, so I was excited to find this piqué bodysuit which I’m really digging for its retro vibe. The latest collection is really “groovy” and includes interesting color combinations, cuts, lines, flares and patterns à la Brady Bunch meets elegance and grace.  The subtle red stripe on the sleeve is what inspired me to add the red theme throughout the look, making everything else just fall into place. In true Wynwood District style, we randomly came across this perfect graffiti’d door, which reminded me of elementary school crayons, and a rare blank wall which served as the perfect backdrop (or “canvas” if you will, pun intended). Be sure to follow my Instagram to keep up with me cuz there’s LOTS more to come and tons of exciting creative collabs in the works!

Debbie Harry was and still is a boss babe with serious talent and beauty, prob one of the coolest chicks to ever walk the face of the Earth. Front-woman and cofounder of new wave NYC band Blondie, which got its start by bursting onto the Brit-punk scene in the late 70s, Debbie Harry’s style and presence is freaking inspiring, to say the least. If you don’t know who she is, stop reading. Google. Please.

I was asked to recreate a look I love – anything from a classic style icon whose look I’m inspired by. So naturally, I chose her for this fun throwback project with boohoo.com. My Debbie Harry girl crush goes way back, but now that I’m rocking the blonde hair, this had to happen. It was not easy to narrow down my outfit given the amazingly vast range of dresses on boohoo.com’s site, but I picked this Stripe Bodycon Midi Dress and toughened it up with a faux leather black cap. The camera certainly got a good dose of attitude from me, as I stood in front of some NYC-esque Wynwood graffiti (appropriate). How I wish I could time travel, hang with Blondie, and rub elbows with cool cats like Lou Reed, Andy Warhol, Fab Five Freddy, and Basquiat.

Another fantastically dreamy photo series with Yesi that is really one of my faves to date. If you’re following on Instagram, it’s no secret I have a thing for walls. Colorful ones, interesting ones, murals, textures…So Yesi and I came across this white brick building in a quiet corner of Downtown Miami that happened to have cool murals behind it. Eye-catching backdrops and random locations really make me giddy, especially when there’s quite a juxtaposition between that and the outfit, or anything standing in front of it, rather. Here I am in my fresh white YRU platforms and a midi dress I picked up from Zara, standing really close to the garbage. Sure, I’ll pop a squat in my sheer dress and sky-high shoes, cuz that’s how I roll. Anything to spice up the shot, to make things more interesting, because I enjoy a little edge and grit. I’m obsessed with these YRU babies though, and am planning on styling them differently for another shoot very soon (posted this pic of them once and it got tons of feedback). What do you think? They’re surprisingly comfortable & light! The struggle is keeping ‘em white! ;)

Dark and stormy best describes this series of portraits shot by Yesi, for two reasons. One: I come across dark and broody. Two: I keep hearing, “you look like Halle Berry’s ‘Storm’ character in X-Men.” ha.

On to my sartorial musings…I’ve always been into contrasting aesthetics, like this flowy feminine dress with boyish brogues. But this STATEMENT NECKLACE THOUGH! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found this gem at Lincoln Road’s Aldo Accessories store. It looks just like a Dylan Lex, minus the hefty price tag. The simplicity of the overall look served as the perfect canvas for this statement piece. Although I’ve been on a Berlin-esque minimalistic x athleisure vibe lately, I always enjoy making a statement and turning heads (I mean, look at my hair for God’s sake). Follow me on Instagram to catch some outtakes and daily snaps.

Strolled around sleepy downtown Miami one early Saturday morning, feeling like a million bucks, because not only was I in the hands of one of the coolest female photographers I know, I had a fresh head of silver grey hair and my 14 year old Adidas Gazelles on my feet. I had rescued them from the heaps of forgotten high-school era relics sitting in my old closet at Mom’s house in Puerto Rico. For those who don’t know, I had a collection of Adidas back in the day. All colors. How I wish I could find them all! They were the best for everyday kicks, plus I used to go to tons of ska/rocksteady (yep) shows, and they were the best to skank the night away in the pit (look it up, not to be confused with “moshing” or “being skanky” lol).

Anywho, these pics were taken just a couple days after my 29th trip around the sun (January 1st is my birthday) – and Yesi always manages to capture such beautiful detail shots and candids. Stay tuned for more and keep up with me and my silver hair antics on my Instagram!
