This is the second look of the shoot “Where Urban Art Meets Fashion”. I opted for a casual striped skirt by Abercrombie & Fitch, a baby blue shirt that I got for 3 bucks at a consignment store, a knitted navy poncho by Land’s End Canvas 1963 (perfect for fall weather), and one of my favorite leather booties by Gianni Binni (available at Dillards). You will see me with these booties a LOT!!!
This look is classic but edgy at the same time. The combination of the skirt and the booties gives a fun touch touch to the look.
In this part of town in Atlanta, I found lots of graffiti and really cool artistic expressions. Wandering in the city is the only way you get to know this artistic spots. I encourage everyone to go and explore the museums, conservatories, botanic gardens, flea markets, art shows, vineyards, natural and recreational parks, petting zoos, and many more. You will find amazing things, learn, and nurture your soul!!!
So I decided to go around town to find some spots and dig into the culture of the city. Driving around Atlanta I found amazing street art, graffiti, and the industrial zone that has been converted into urban lofts. This area unites people from all backgrounds, but especially artists, musicians, and entertainers. Feeling inspired by the view, the railroad tracks and the energy of this place made possible this shoot which captured a concept: Where Urban Art Meets Fashion.
I am wearing: H&M electric blue skinny pants, a vintage jacket and eel purse from a local consignment store, H&M black shirt with lace on the collar and high heels Oxford’s by Ellen Tracy. Lately I am super into black and blue. It is my fashion statement for the season. And remember, it is not about the high fashion brands you wear. It’s about having a sense of style, getting inspired by daily feelings, and creating looks with whatever you have in your own closet. That’s the true talent.
Create your own urban style:
This is a vintage shirt that I use as a jacket because it is oversized and gives a relaxed look for a sunny afternoon. Underneath I have a little black dress mixed with a long sleeve black sheer shirt, heart shaped glasses which add cuteness to the outfit, and some Vince Camuto booties. I used two combinations of lipsticks: Mac Russian red and rebel. A Swarovski crystal pendant by Oliver Weber completes an effortless urban look.

Those are the words of one of my favorite designers ever, of course it had to be the amazing french Joseph Altuzarra. This guy is a genius. He not only designs the most gorgeous effortless chic clothing, but he also uses fabrics that are unique pieces of art assembled together to create a fantastic look. For spring 2014, he made lots of headlines with this collection. His main focus is to create beautiful things, but beautiful things that people can wear on a daily basis. And that’s how it should be. For makeup he opted for flawless pale skin, white eye shadow, Mac russian red lipstick, and sleek back hair. Take notes girls!!!!

I went to the mountains to catch a glimpse of the wonderful colors that the trees in Georgia have to offer, it was indeed a colorful view . Different shades of reds, yellows, oranges, browns and greens. I was amazed by the beauty of this place, the mountains give a sense of calmness and the freshest air ever.
When I go to places like the country and the mountains I like to look my best but also being comfortable for me is very important, so I decided to go with my skinny jeans from Zara, Topshop knitted sweater in yellow and navy blue pattern, a vintage jacket from Etcetera, chained booties from Forever 21 and some Lennon inspired sunnies that I absolutely adore! These days I am into lots of black and blue in all shades.
Today I wore a beautiful vintage vest that I found at a local consignment store, the print of this vest looks like the one LV presented on their runway on Paris Fashion week 2013 collection. It’s pattern is small black and brown squares. I combined my look by wearing a copper gypsy turban, some inspired Lennon shades, black sheer shirt from BCBG, black leggings from target and the must have of the season: black chained booties from Forever 21. I also added a pop of color by mixing two of my favorite Mac lipsticks: cyber and rebel, for a dark purple goth kinda look. Tell me what you think 😊.
