Dread to Trend

Ah, Denim on Denim. I personally thought I would never go near the trend. I remember my mother picking out some horrendous denim on denim outfits that scarred me on the fashion front. (Sorry mom, but its true.)  SO EMBARRASSING. 

This all changed of course, as I started playing with some of the denim pieces in my wardrobe. I got sucked in! It also has been totally on trend ever since celebrities like Kim Kardashian (here) and Rihanna (here) showed us how it's done. They def. killed it.

I feel that double denim is the essence of edge and streetstyle. Below is my personal spin on it. I decided to add some mirrored aviators, metallic accents and plaid. Not at all overpowering, just some extra edge to pull the entire look together. 

In the comments below- Kindly write your input on the trend. How would you put your personal touch into the look? What celebrities have inspired you to give it a shot?

Streetstyle Loves Street Art

Sup Guys, 

Off the bat, I want to talk about the walls on the West Side- AMAZE. New York City has tons of cool spaces and scenes to take in. Karina (my fellow blogger and friend) and I are always on the hunt to find some sweet art to compliment our outfits. We stumbled upon this on our lunch break and found it to be just perfect. There were multiple murals and I decided this was the perfect one for me. There's this simple yet complex element to it, as well as this creepy feeling which is what drew me to it instantly. I find this mural to be INSANE-  these faces were my audience the entire time we were shooting.  

Unfortunately, I failed to get a good shot of the entire mural, however you can check it out on the brilliant artists' site, along with all of his other amazing work. His name is Jordan Betten and he is a NYC based artist who founded the luxury leather brand Lost Art. I encourage you to check out his site and learn more about him. Pretty in love with his work. Thank you for making NYC more appealing Mr. Betten. 

Xo,
