Searching for a sleek, grown-up backpack to get you through the day and beyond? Search no more. Enter Campos Bags, founded by Mr. Roy Campos, who came to America and opened up his atelier in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 80’s. After years of creating patterns, samples, and production for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff, Foley & Corinna, and Elie Tahari, he decided to launch his first eponymous handbag collection. And let me tell you, it is ON POINT.

The collection exemplifies the best of classic American leather design: clean, simple, well-made, beautiful bags that are incredibly versatile and useful. Every Campos bag is handmade to order (with a sustainable, zero-waste model in mind) by a team of artisans using 100% locally sourced materials. I mean – it takes at least 7 SKILLED CRAFTSMEN to make ONE BAG! And each piece features a fun little secret…a bright blue stitch on each zipper puller, alluding to the old superstition that blue thread is lucky and wards off any harm (I’m a sucker for product with little hidden quirks). So not only are you looking mighty fine rocking a sleek backpack or lucky bag when you sport Campos, you are also playing a huge part in creating jobs, and driving the fashion, design and manufacturing industries back to the USA. Scroll down for more pics, and be sure to check out this short clip to take a tour through their Brooklyn Navy Yard factory as they make a Campos bag from start to finish!

Transformation through way of dress. That’s what it’s all about. One day I’m feeling boho and flare denim pants, the next I’ll wear all black (which is most days). But mostly I like to make people consider what they wouldn’t wear themselves. Try it. You might like it. So with this outfit, I was feeling the whole flouncy shirt, boho flare denim, and fedora. I’ve been wearing a lot of tomboy minimal silhouettes, boxy pants, and white sneakers on the reg, but on occasion I’ll get a surge of femininity and bring out these flowy situations. Love House of Harlow, not only because it’s Nicole Richie’s brainchild (she’s my celeb soul doppelgänger) – but because they make the best fitting flare denim pants (if you’ve ever wondered where to find a pair). The brand also kills it with unique prints and designs inspired by 1960s glamour and costume dressing.

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! ;)
