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

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!
