TEXTURES + SHADOWS


WEARING: Brandy Melville Crop Top, H&M Leather Jacket, American Apparel Velvet Leggings + Hat, Aldo Shoes, Vintage Accessories and Alexander Wang Marion Bag.

When you wear as much black as I do, you have to play with its textures. Here is a great example how you can be creative and have fun with black. I have cotton, leather and velvet on, all strong textures, made better when you mix them together.  I love leather too much, I could wear it everyday; day and night.

This is by far one of my favourite blog shoots. Number one, this was shot by the TrichesTadiello crew whom I love and I miss so much (come back!). Number two, it really represents my aesthetics, from the simplicity of the backdrop, the muted colours of the outfit, to the bright sun and play with the shadows. Yes I have an obsession with shadows. It is like Peter Pan (one of my favourite books) could come at anytime to take me to Neverland; where my imagination has no limits and my shadow would have a life on her own.

Thank you for all the support, the kind words and your comments about my designs. Life is good!

  21. Agreed, throwing different things into the mix is always a plus.:) These shots are really cool, your outfit is perfect, but the play with shadows really adds that little extra something! Cool!

    P.S.: Those velvet tights are INSANE.
