DARK SIDE

Wearing: Zara Chiffon Jumper, American Apparel Leather Vintage Skirt, Melissa Araujo Crop Top 
and Aldo Shoes

I am so lucky to have such kind, talented and creative friends. Here is an example of raw talent and an eye for detail. He goes by Particle Observer and for those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting him or working with him, know that it is a very fitting name. Unassuming, nice and very handsome he could easily be in front of the camera and not the other way around. We worked together last year (if you haven't seen me in a leopard bra sitting by the beach do so here meow). I truly love the results of both shoots that we have collaborated on. This one is sleek yet feminine; dark, but enlightened by his detailing. 

Dark Side is a beautiful homage to all things noir. "Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy-but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don't bother you -you don't bother me" Yohji Yamamoto. In my opnion black is also chic, timeless and seasonless.  It fits my personality and how I like to represent myself to others. What you see is what you get, no mixed messages. Enjoy these images, check out Particle Observer here. You will be seeing more projects coming from our collaborative minds soon. Thank you K!

  85. These photographs are absolutely gorgeous. You are beautiful! Black is my favorite color to wear. I love this mix of textures in your outfit. The light, sheer top looks amazing with the heavier leather skirt. Also, you should give me your hair, please.
