Morning Reverie

09.15.17

Night bleeds into day. The hours melt together. I sway with the sea, lean into a reverie.

How many nights have you stayed out and lost track of time? Next thing you know day breaks. You feel one of two ways: really guilty yearning to wash yourself clean of the previous night’s debauchery, OR really alive and at peace, thankful for a brand new day. Here’s to you, daybreakers, to all those late nights and early sunrises that made you shine from within and beam with gratitude… 

About the look – A blazer is a staple piece to have in your wardrobe, as it can be styled different ways and be worn all year-round. Here, an oversized blazer and boyish silhouette are offset with ladylike details – sparkly sequins, chic heels, pearl buttons. The Calvin Klein halter top adds a touch of sport, as I’m pretty obsessed with sportswear and have been incorporating it into my daily looks, either dressed up or dressed down. I should note, I just returned from SS18 New York Fashion Week and came back super inspired by all the runway fashions and badass street style, so stay tuned for more, and follow me on Instagram for my daily musings πŸ€³

Through The Looking Glass

08.20.17

Break on through to the other side, of the looking glass…

Brought this mirror as a simple prop, yet it helped create magical things. Inspired by Alice In Wonderland, I wanted to evoke a feeling of stepping into another universe – one that’s barren and desolate, and all sorts of moody. Stripes on stripes adds a little whimsy, paired with my natural state of being (aka languorous), and we’ve achieved a dream…through the looking glass. 

About the look: I’m obsessed with this Style Mafia top which served as the first piece the outfit was styled around. The pants are old Zara and can be styled a variety of ways – with sneakers as depicted here, or over your swimsuit/bodysuit with a pair of flatform wedges. On to the shoes –  these Nike Cortez are one of my fave pairs of sneakers (that’s a lie, I’ve become a sneakerhead and actually love every single pair I own) because they go with everythingggg and are comfy AF.

So are you feeling sleepy/dreamy yet? Drop me a line, and see what I’m up to in the Instagram world

ο»ΏCozy Gal Denim Double Down

Cozy keeps me sane, so I’m down for comfy cool looks and double denim all the way. Lately I’ve had sneakers on heavy rotation (THESE NIKES ARE FREAKIN MAGICAL), and lots of hats, because I find bangs and hats go well together (who knew). Also, did you know Opening Ceremony and ESPRIT dropped a designer collab collection? That’s where the pants are from, AND they still have several pieces available on sale! You’re welcome. I have another cool Downtown look coming up, plus I’m prepping for a trip back to the motherland (Puerto Rico) so stay tuned…I may or may not be changing the hair. Catch me if you can, on the ‘gram.

Retro Futuristic Feels – And LED Light Up Shoes

Welcome to my tropicalia-inspired retro-yet-futuristic dream straight from my nonsensical mind…

Did I lose you? I can get carried away with descriptions, packing so much into my sentences (spoken and written) that I catch myself rambling. Does that ever happen to you? And then when I have several things running around in my head I find it hard to communicate or to choose the best words (especially when it comes to politically-charged passionate discussions about current affairs, but that’s a whole ‘nother story). Just think of me as the Mad Hatter, ADHD tendencies and all. Sometimes I say fuck it, let’s have fun and channel all this craziness into what I’m gonna wear today, hence this paradoxical retro-yet-futuristic look that I speak of.

You may have already noticed by now how my style changes on the DAILY, and on this particular day, I wanted to have fun like the bold, carefree, vivacious Miranda Makaroff. I threw together a few items I had in my closet: a colorful vintage jumpsuit, offset with futuristic sunglasses by Karen Walker (the queen-of-chic-meets-eccentric). Let me get to these light up shoes though, the true hero of this post…These “Hologram LED Light Sneakers” by Shop Vase are the life of any party. Everyone I walk past does a double-take…Must be the shoes. *Cue hip hop legends Lords Of The Underground’s line, “It’s the shoes. The SHOES?! It’s GOTTA be the shoes.” (Listen to the first 40 seconds of the song “Chief Rocka” here to see what i mean.)

So as I moon-walk my way past pastel-color buildings, Yesi and I come across this gem of a place, Flamingo Plaza, built in 1937 as the Flamingo Hotel. Today it’s a condo with eye-catching original fresco paintings that have been amazingly preserved & restored. Thanks to the friendly resident sitting outside who let us in, we were able to access this colorful haven. Although I read that it was build in the 1930s i can’t help but think of Brazil’s artistic movement of the 1960s, Tropicalia. Know what I mean? Anywho, scroll away and thanks for reading my ramblings today. Now let’s party! Don’t forget to say hi on Instagram <3
