I'm looking/feeling fresh like a Cuban mobster in Miami. Does anyone else tie their looks with different personas? Like an actor switching roles--except I am the master of disguise.
Forever 21 sent me a care package that included this twist-front cropped cami, and my gut instinct was to pair it with my brassy gold pants from the coveted Isabel Marant x H&M collaboration from years past. (Also worn here). SO extra. Then I needed a cover up that contrasted with all the gold, and this white blazer was the answer! Polished the look with pointy white pumps and my signature gold chevron choker that I can't seem to take off.
My super cool friend/photographer Alex and I stumbled across this quirky orange Volkswagen Bus, which happened to be parked against a sky blue house adorned with beautiful high arches. It perfectly matched and complemented by outfit--it was too good to be true. Never feel insecure about your creativity. You'll hear me say that time and time again. I almost didn't style this top the way I did, it was my least favorite outfit of the few that I shot that day, but it turned out to be quite stunning, if I do say so myself! Morale of the story is to trust yourself, no one knows you better than you know yourself.
When Forever 21 reposts your photo on their website which is sick af but they only post your boobs and leave out your face but it's ok I can't complain. Woohoo!
Fun fact: the first Volkswagen Bus sold in the US in 1950 with a whopping 30 horsepower LOL. And back by popular demand, the new fully electric VW Bus is expected to make it's comeback in 2022. It's called the ID Buzz, not bus. Because it's the new electric buzzzzzz? *Insert bee emoji here* Cute.
I had the best time on this shoot, it was very special and serendipitous. Thank you guys for reading and stopping by and letting me share the things in this mind of mine.
