Wrap Me Up In Your Warm Light

04.11.17

“Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.” – Horace Mann 

 

I learned about magic hour, or golden hour, in film school. It’s a phrase used to describe the fleeting moments shortly before sunset or immediately after sunrise, when the natural light is warm and yes, golden. These lighting conditions create beautiful shadow, texture, and depth in images, not to mention the overall feel is quite pleasant. If you scroll through the pics below you’ll notice Yesi and I happened to catch it in all its golden glory from the 1111 Lincoln Road building (architectural masterpiece by Herzog de Meuron). It was almost like the sky was on fire right before the sun fully set.

About the look, my day-to-day face is natural and dewy. I’ve been obsessed with glossy lids lately, and also this deep red lip in “Carnelian” by Aveda. Details on what I’m wearing are down below. Happy scrolling 🙂

Flashes in the Night

Three cheers for Capricorn season! Today, January 16th,  is not only one of my all time favorite singers and female icons Sade’s birthday, it’s also a day that commemorates one of history’s key figures’ birthday, Martin Luther King, Jr. (observed on the third Monday of every January in honor of his January 15th birthday). I leave you with a set of pictures Yesi and I shot one evening playing around with flash, in which I am wearing a Sade shirt by Deer Dana and my treasured All Saints leather jacket (full credits all the way at the bottom of this post). Follow on Instagram for more stuff on the daily!

“The struggle is real” – A (generally) ironic saying often used in place of the saying, “first world problems.” Denotes a situation where the user wishes to express that they are encountering some sort of undesirable difficulty, but dealing with it. With irony, it has a comical effect of dramatizing a non-critical, yet undesirable situation. (via Urban Dicitionary).

How many times do you use #thestruggle or #thestruggleisreal in conversation these days? Well, this shirt is for you! Thanks to Miami designer Steph Canto of Hustle Sauce, she’s bringing clever mottos and eye-catching typography to high quality apparel, perfect for a street-style edge.

This is the first part of the series, where boy did I make friends. Yesica Laver Flores of Simply Lively went behind the lens to capture these shots at the Domino Park on Calle Ocho, Miami. Such a mélange of Caribbean characters, from Dominican to Puerto Rican to Cuban, all convening for their favorite game! Needless to say, they were excited to have us shoot there. Stay tuned for the second part of the series, where I get to hang with my beautiful blogger pals Annie Vazquez of The Fashion Poet and D’ana Nuñez of Collections and Volumes!

Spring has arrived and it’s time to whip out a pair of pretty sandals. Here I want to highlight the New York shoe line fibi & clo. Run by power couple AnaLiza Alba (Founder & Creative Director) and Michael Leen (Co-Founder & CEO), this is a small company with a huge heart and an eye for style.

Each pair of jeweled sandals offers a touch of glam to any breezy-chic outfit. It really is like wearing jewelry on your feet, but what is awe-inspiring is that you can treat your feet with this luxe look for under $60!

These photos were all taken at beautiful Key West, where the sun was shining and my fibi & clo sandals were too…I chose to show off a pair of the Smoke Cascade seen in the last four photos, as well as a pair of the beautiful Sea Star pictured in the first four shots above.

Here at OJ and Cigs, we try to feature as much music and art as possible in addition to style, fashion and such. Here are some pictures I took at this year’s Basel Castle 2012. There was live art by Shark Toof, Lamour Supreme, Buff Monster and others along with performances by Twin Shadow and Purity Ring. Sensory overload galore and I loved it.
