Denim, Stripes & Leather

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!

Modern Gypsy Style

“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.

DSC_2274Changing 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.

If you live in Atlanta, or you are visiting and want to have an amazing Hair Artist do your hair or makeup , book your appointment at Salon Zarah with Cristina Hernandez @cristo88 http://www.salonzahra.com
