Dancing With Myself

Even when I go a bit darker with my style (the city girl in me), I’ll find myself drawn back to color to mix things up every now and then (the island girl in me). We found this amazing little vacant building tucked away in a residential non-touristy area of South Beach to serve as the perfect backdrop for capturing movement in the warm golden light of the setting sun. It almost looks like we took a little road trip to the Keys, doesn’t it? As of late, I’ve had this thing for sparkly sheer shirts and love how this one shimmers in that 5pm natural glow. Nothing like closing your eyes and dancing with your shadow to put you in a good mood…and sure, maybe a few curious passersby shelling out words of praise/encouragement to make you feel a little less weird LOL.

PS – This look is pre-haircut. I’m a little backed up on content, so bear with me while I catch up! Meanwhile you can keep up with me on Instagram <3

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

Garden Goals And This Black Maxi Dress

Just a girl and her garden. Well, not really my garden. I was lurking in someone’s front yard because the greenery caught my attention. My living room is filled with succulents and cacti of every shape and size, including a 5-ft one which will be a pain to move if ever the time should come >.<

Back to the outfit at hand. This black maxi dress by Tobi is cool, comfortable and sexy – a step up from your ordinary frock. The nice thing about long dresses is that they can be styled different ways, with booties, sandals, denim jacket, or even tied at the hem with a knot (if it’s too long, but looks cool too). Yesi and I took these pics some time last year but I never had a chance to post, hence why the hair looks a bit different and I have less tattoos. Hope you like! Also, keep up with me on the Insta 🙂
