Atlanta has beautiful places, it is a modern city with hints of old architecture and lots of nature and great food. I love to explore the city every time I get a chance; Walking thru its streets is defenetly a pleasure. Here I am, wearing a striped top with leather sleeves from JCrew, denim jeans by JBrand, stiletto heels by Aldo and bag by Longchamp. And with my pink hair on the sides which I love!
I discovered an awesome location to take pictures. This Virginia Highlands Flower School was perfect for a shoot scenario. They had an amazing set up. I was wearing a tribal print dress by Urban Outfitters, jelly shoes by American Apparel and Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Simple and fun! If any of you is interested in learning floral school, this place is perfect to learn this beautiful art! find them on instagram @faithflowersatl.

“Inspired by world cultures, the arts, and historical dressmaker techniques, this JOHNNY WAS design transcends fashion trends with its beautifully crafted embroidery and one-of-a-kind accessories. Embracing the quintessential California bohemian lifestyle, JOHNNY WAS appeals to the modern gypsy”. This brand captures my essence all the way. Boho-chic clothing fit for ones daily wardrobe all the way.
This dress embroidery is very detailed with vibrant colors and the fabric has an amazing flow. Reminds me of Emmylou Harris and Bob Marley at the same time. It has that Jamaican vibe.
I combined the dress with some blue socks and oxford’s with wooden high heels from Hinge, Russian Red lipstick from MAC, and pink chunks on my hair with Crazy Color. Eyes bracelet by El’Aura Store, find it on instagram @elaurastore, and turquoise beaded bracelet by colombian designer Mercedes Salazar.

Changing is one of my favorite things to do. I can’t stand looking the same, or being the same for too long. I have to move on daily, and part of those changes are expressed thru fashion, hair, makeup and looks. Hair is one of the things that I like to change the most. I get bored with the same look, so I go from pink to blonde, in a heart bit without thinking it too much! This time I went to my darling sister and Hair Expert, Cristina Hernandez. She’s great with hair, and makeup. For this particular look, she dared to mix three different colors to have that perfect beach blonde. Using Wella lightener 40% Vol. 8-1 with 20% Vol. on roots, and toner 12+10 with pearl, ashy violet and gold tones. And thats how she got this white blonde color, and I don’t like it, I LOVE it!
I picked a simple summery outfit and accessories to complete the look. My top is from this amazing hippie vibes brand called ‘Title Unknown’, vintage Levis shorts, Unisa espradilles, Chanel sunnies and Marc Jacobs bag.

There is no secret that the greatest final touches for a perfect outfit is layering. Well, in this simple outfits I decided to layer with jewelry. But this is no ordinary jewelry, the pieces are specially handcrafted, molded, designed and created by a jewelry artist and artisan. Making everything from scratch, from getting the silver in small bites, melting it on clay spoons at hight temperatures, sculpturing the figures, cutting, filing, etc. This jewels are a piece of art, the real deal, not manufactured by machines.
