A couple of weeks ago my friend Slim took me to see these murals in Culver City. Most of the street art in LA seems to be based in Downtown or Hollywood areas, so its cool to see some art on the west side. I especially love these two pieces (first ones Im standing in front of) by a pair of artists from Holland. This little area which is located at National and Washington in the middle of the Culver City Arts District, features several pieces by street artists from around the globe. Artists include; Herakut from Germany, grafitti artist Rime, Husband-and-wife team Dabs Myla, French street artist Miss Van and Los Angeles painter Dan Quintana, among others. The murals are commissioned and made to happen by art curator Warren Brand through his successful organization Branded Arts. “BRANDED ARTS stages art-driven events that fuse visual art with music, fashion and entertainment, creating a platform that showcases emerging talent from around the world.” <—thats what they do….love it!!! Support FREE ART in Los Angles!!!!
Anyhow, I went back there yesterday with my friend and amazing photographer Matt Sayles and took some outfit pictures. I love this key hole top that my big sister gave me cus its sooo early 2000′s style. And I love any kind of animal prints <3 xx
The top is from Mango, pants,blazer and rings from H&M, sunglasses from Zara, clutch is Prada inspired from H&M a couple of yrs ago and shoes are Devious from Amazon.
I finally got the pictures from a photo shoot that I styled a couple of weeks ago. I had so much fun with this one. Bright colours and animal prints!!!! The pictures will be featured on FASHIONISING.COM – Which is one of my favorite fashion websites! Let me know what you guys think! x

You will not catch me in heels that are under 5 inches high. Its all or nothing for me….sneakers or HIGH heels!!! Not those yucky grandma heels (no offense grandma ). Its no secret that pointy pumps are back (they kinda left briefly) …..but I have been having so much trouble finding a pair that are high enough. YES I know Louboutin make them and YSL and I knowww I been wanting the Jimmy Choo Anouks for a year…. (especially in silver) but unfortunately at this moment in time I have to prioritize paying my rent….and I don’t live in Texas (where apparently you can get a 2 bedroom for $500- I would b ballin).
H&M, Aldo, Forever etc etc all of them make pumps in every awesome colour imaginable but they are all 3 or 4 inches. WHY?? I just dont get it…..do they think poorer people need more comfy shoes? Is the extra inch of material expensive? why why why.
So I have been searching and searching online. The shape of the toe is so important to me too and many of them just look wrong. Finally I found this pair on Amazon and judging from the box they are from some sort of Fetish dress shop!! But who cares they are 5 inches high with no platform and the shape is almost perfect! (Could be a little more pointy). They run really small – Im a US size 6 1/2 and I had to get these in an 8! They now have them in a couple of different colours also and they sell for $50. I have worn them out twice and they do not hurt any more than the rest of my heels. If you are interested in copin them here is the link xx
Ken forgive me for abusing ur face.
I am slightly depressed that i am not at Coachella right now!!!! I know my girlies are there turning the place upside down I wish I was there with you guys!!….but I have to prioritize work at this point in time. An aspiring Fashion Stylist doesnt take a break.. Not if you really serious about what you want to do. And I am double serious and totally motivated and focused. Everyday I am working on my goals and trying to move forward. Lately things are looking really good and I have been more busy than ever, which is amazing
Spring time is here YAY! I am going to be moving soon, and lots of changes are happening….Its scary and exciting..so anyway I decided to do a last photo shoot on my rooftop that I love so much. I currently have no photographer so I am taking my own pictures which is going pretty ok if I may say so!! (Can you spot the shutter release in my hand??)
The shorts I am wearing are some that I made myself, from a line of custom denim shorts that I call Bubblegum. I make these particular ones in any colour combination, so just holla at me if you are interested in buying a pair, they are $50. xx
On Friday I went to check out the launch of Skingraft new collection at their boutique in DTLA. Can I just say that I am falling in <3 with downtown more and more everyday?! I am actually thinking that I might move there. I was amazed to see that the restaurants were poppin at 11pm with people still waiting for tables. I WALKED along the street…WITH other PEOPLE around me……if you dont live in LA you will not understand why this was such an amazing experience for me. I saw real people…not just cars!!! And there are always Art / Fashion / Music events going down on every corner. Sigh…!!
Anyhow I loved Skingraft. A simplistic, expertly crafted, leather dominated clothing brand that has been around for a couple of years. I was missing colour of course but the interesting designs and incredible detail made up for it. I wish I would have brought my camera for some better images. After this I headed over to another cool event of an unnamed designer which also featured some great art work as well as a performance by a girl who’s name I didnt catch either. I can only describe her as a white girl Attempt at Nicki Minaj. Love it.
I didnt get any good outfit pictures…but I was wearing metalic top from Wasteland, blue pants from H&M and leather motorcycle style jacket from Zara.
I live for fashion, music and good times with friends. No wonder I love festivals so much! This Saturday was Paid Dues Independent Hip Hop festival in San Bernadino!!!!! Me and my girls have been looking forward to it for evvvveeeer. Since I’m not going to Coachella this year I decided to really make the most out of this one. I was dressed as a Sparkling Tiger of course. You cant see the glitter in the pictures but believe me I was leaving a trail of glitter everywhere I went!! I am gutted I missed Joey Badass…..I really wanted to check him out live and see if hes really as good as the hype. But I guess we were lost somewhere at this point.
I saw Trinidad James!! The crowd went wild when All Gold Erythang came on. Turn up was real. Then we saw Tech 9 which I DID NOT LIKE. I never heard his music before and I hope I never do again. He put on quite a show tho Ill give him that. Then half of us went to see Juicy J and the other half to Macklemore. I think ill go mad if I hear that Thriftstore song one more time. Enough! So I went to Juicy instead. I always liked his songs. But hes kinda old now. Like too old to be telling girls to get on stage and take their tops off. Eww.
The whole event was of course headlined by my absolute favorite crew. TDE aka Black Hippie. I have seen them all live before but I had never seen them all perform together which was soooooo awesome. I am crazy about Ab Soul and he performed pretty much all my fav songs!!! Kendrick was incredible as always and so was Schoolboy. J Rock is cool too but I’m less familiar with his songs. Anyways..super fun day! xx
Tiger top is from Mink Pink, shorts from Bik Bok, sunglasses from Nordstroms and boots Zara
My girl Chanelle, who I grew up with in Spain, has an online clothing company, based here in LA, called Savous.com (check it out!). She asked me if I would like to model her latest collection this Sunday. Her clothes are really funky and fashion forward, totally my style! And of course I said hell yes!! So I spent the day at the studio trying on fabulous outfits and accessorizing to the max. Chanelle has some really unique and cool sunglasses, necklaces, hats and clutches in addition to the heaps of gorgeous t-shirts, jumpsuits, skirts and dresses.
I had a great time hanging out and taking pictures all day and Chanelle’s little baby pug even kept me company while I was getting my make up done! I cant wait to see the pictures, I am sure they are going to look amazing! I will post them as soon as they are done. For now here are some behind the scenes
I want to start by saying Pray 4 Weezy! One of my favorite rappers overdosed on codine and was hospitalized once again. I really hope he’s gona be ok. He’s too young and talented and has too many kids to leave already. Last week was pretty intense for me so today I am taking it easy and getting some work done at home. I went out and took a couple outfit pics for u guys, with my lovely roomie Yasmin as the photographer (Tack Bror ). Im in love with this Benji print fitted hat that my friend gave me. Im a fiend for bright colours, if youve followed my blog you know this already:)
Now I’m about to go work out and then have an early night. Tomorrow I am styling a shoot in downtown and then doing a product shoot for a designer so I have to get up super duper early! I also been meaning to say thank you to all those who follow my blog and leave such lovely comments!! Thank you guys! It means so much. And thank you for all your amazing blogs that I love to read and follow also! xx

Last week I styled a test shoot for my photographer friend Nick…see his stuff here… The theme was Tropical Bliss, which was so perfect cus Im loving all the fruity-animal-jungle prints that are super hot for spring. While the model was getting her hair and make up done I took the opportunity to ask Nick to take a couple pics of me:) This studio in downtown LA was like a crazy maze of random props, art and junk. So much fun! I took a couple of shots of the model with my iPhone, but ill post the finished ones once they are edited.
Blue dress from Forever 21, faux fur from Zara, vintage silver chain, shoes from Sheik.
