The Holidays Outfit

It’s the time of the year when Santa Baby and I’ll Be Home For Christmas are playing in every store you walk in. Inside, the warm tunes and the cinnamon scented air compete with the bright lights and colorful decorations from outside. Which scenario is more beautiful? It’s hard to tell.

Moda Shoot

I would say that now, more than ever, you can truly be whatever you want to be. A fashion designer, a blogger, a model… It is no longer up to destiny to place you right in front of that café, under perfect light, at the exact time a model scout happens to walk out, and determines you are incredibly beautiful. No, now we have countless model agencies, social media, networking events. People actually have a shot at carving their own destiny.

Back in time

I usually think more of the future, than I do of the past. The future is filled with possibilities, dreams, paths that can lead anywhere. However, the past comes up sometimes, and I have to admit, it is a comfortable place… childhood laughter and games, stories with known endings, certainty. And then comes the nostalgia, for “the good days”, for times and places that I was never in, but can’t help but admire, and wonder what life was like back then.

Nelson Atkins Fashion Show

Auro has been backstage several times, one time as a model for her own design. After the event she would tell me how it went, what she liked, and other details.  I've never stopped to think about photographing the sweet mayhem that takes place before a show. So when I went to the backstage of the Nelson-Atkins Fashion Show I kept asking myself: Now what? What do I shoot? Do I need to ask for permission? I hope I don’t get in the way of anybody or trip over a cable or something; so yes I was a bit nervous.

KCFW-Friday Runway I

Last week Will and I attended the Kansas City Fashion Week Friday runway. There are so many amazing designs and cool pictures we want to share with you! So we decided to do the two segments of the event on separate posts. On this first one, you will get a glance at the collections of Joshua Christensen, Ethel and Dean, Julia Fischer and Nasheli Juliana. Click on each designer's name above their pictures to view their page.

Cold Days, Costa Rica

Choosing what to wear on a cold or windy day is always a challenge. I love pictures where clothes wave with the wind. On the other hand, if I am wearing a loose short dress or skirt, it may get very uncomfortable. On this throw back post of a trip to the Irazu volcano, I made sure I was warm by wearing booties and a sweater, and to add some movement I designed a long skirt.

La Musa: First Issue

I found “La Musa” on Facebook and was immediately captivated by the color and originality of the accessories. I would classify them as “statement jewelry”, where the most important part of the attire is the accessory itself, which is attention-grabbing from blocks away.

Enjoying Casa Conde

As part of the prize we won through Expo Novia, Will and I had the opportunity to stay at the Casa Conde hotel at playa Panamá. The hotel is all inclusive, but during our stay they didn’t have the usual all-you-can-eat buffet. Maybe it was just because we visited during low season or perhaps they are searching to provide a more exclusive plan. Customers can order from the menu or ask for the “plat du jour”.

The Interview Outfit

When it comes to job interviews I've always gone with the safe bet: a formal shirt and pants or a skirt. But today I had an interview for a fashion related job, where creativity is an important qualification. How to dress to impress? I chose a pair of really loose printed pants (which I never thought of like business attire) and decided to go for a risky but chic combination of stripes and prints. To give the look a formal spin, I added high heels, a black blazer and contrasting jewelry.

À Prusia - Old fashioned walk

The weather gets cooler as we head North on the road that leads to the Irazú volcano. We don’t drive all the way up there; we stop on the road to glance down… a beautiful view of Cartago. It’s windy, but the yellow flowers bring warmth into the picture. After that, we decide to go to Prusia. It’s “unknown territory” for us and we’re a bit doubtful about being able to get there, after reading a review that recommends a 4x4 vehicle.
