One of the highlights of my last trip to New York was shooting with Erika (@riot_red) of @haguenyc. I normally just shoot with the same photographers most of the time because I happen to have some really talented friends but Erika was an exception after seeing the work she did with my Aunt and her children (who happen to be extremely stylish). Her work is a breath of fresh air and not the same boring Street Fashion stuff I see all the time. Sorry, but its the truth. She manages to shoot… Read More
Patrick Nagel is one of my favorite artists of all time and was/is famous for his beautiful and colorful Art Deco stylized illustrations of women.

Moreover, every… Read More
Dazzling pinup, Winny Queen, has just launched her very own clothing line Le Palais Vintage. Her pieces are absolutely gorgeous and takes retro style to a whole other level with glamorous pieces that exude 1950s glamour. Le Palais Vintage has its own “je ne said quoi” and stands out amongst the rest because her pieces are a lot different from the rotation of the same silhouettes and patterns offered by most retro companies. One of my favorite pieces from her collection is this polka dot romper. It fits me like a glove and… Read More
