NYC STREET STYLE

Para los que no se han dado cuenta, hay una nueva sección en el blog llamada NYC STREET STYLE. Aprovechando estos días que estoy por aquí, he decidido fotografiar a todas las personas que llaman mi atención por la calle, esas personas normales y corrientes como uno mismo en las que encuentras mas inspiración que en cualquier revista de moda- y que mejor ciudad para empezar a hacerlo que en esta loca ciudad, donde el popurrí de mezclas, nacionalidades y personalidades destaca mas que en cualquier otro lugar... Iré agregando fotos según este aquí. Estos son mis primeros candidatos:

For those of you who haven't noticed, there is a new section on the right side of my blog called NYC STREET STLE. Taking advantage of the fact that I am here for a couple of days, I have decided to photograph every person that calls my attention on the streets, those ordinary people just like you and I, whom inspire me more than anything on a fashion magazine...and what better place to start this than in this crazy city where the mixture of styles, nationalities and personalities highlights more than in any other place... I will be adding pictures throughout my stay. Here are my first candidates:






Cool kids on the block. 3 very outgoing and spontaneous people who's pictures was very easy and fun to take. Their all in all cool and laid back outfits and the fact that they were together made a great combination of stylish looks.



Tanysha Eatom and HF Whyte- cool couple walking around 5th ave. who's all black outfits, her knee highs and cool shoe combination and his laid back white-t, jeans and untied boots where what I liked the most .


Security at Forever 21 on Union Sq. who asked to have his picture taken. All suited up and with a very kind personality.




Carmela & Adriana Osorio Lugo - 2 sisters from Venezuela whom I clicked with right away. They were sitting on a bench next to Rockefellers and as I sat down to have my Magnolia red velvet cupcake next to them, I knew they would know where I could find some cool vintage stores. Not only did they know but little did I know, we engaged in conversation on our lives and how they made it out in NYC!




Johanna Broughton - her hair, her necklace and her skirt caught me eye immediately. She very kindly asked the man if she could pose next to his paintings and I loved that little detail she had.




Lisa Jorfald- very cute girl with a Colombian background and a very simple and classy look walking around Union Sq.




This guy was going into Walgreens on Union Square and I couldn't help but notice his effortless cool look. His turban is what bought me at first.



Cute old couple and a very fashionable grandma who's jacket I fell in love with.



Rocco Malozzi - asked to buy a cigarette off of me while I was sitting outside Baby Cakes bakery on Broome st. As I opened the box and he saw it was my last one, he taught me a lesson with his distinguished and all in all cool Queens accent, "you never let anyone take your last cigarette." 


Guy at Starbucks on Park Ave. who very spontaneously asked to have his picture taken regardless of the grumpy man saying no pictures where allowed. With such a good contagious vibe, how could I say no?



Stay stylish NYC, I'm coming for you!!

MIAMI II

Sebastian is right, every thing's better under the see (under a pool version). Zone out, no one can see you, you can't hear anything but the bubbles, pretend you're a mermaid and forget everything else. 

As these pictures show me under the water perspective of Miami, another thing you can find me doing here is without a doubt eating. I will not hesitate to try every restaurant, dinner and food truck there is regardless of being the pickiest person you will ever meet and not to mention vegetarian. Needless to say, this county is perfect for people with my unhealthy eating habits...which include Waffles any time of day sometimes maybe twice a day either out or some Eggos if at home. Pop Tarts, all sorts of cereal (Cap'n crunch, Cocoa pebbles, Reeses Puffs, Honey bunches of Oats, and the list goes on) POLLY-O string cheese, OREO  Cakesters, Martin's potato rolls, Pilsburry Crescent rolls, pizza here there and everywhere especially at Sir Pizza (while in Key Biscayne) *Don't forget the ranch sauce*, grilled cheese and double layered if at BIG PINK on South Beach, Fried oreos if at PRIME 112, Red velvet Cheesecake (yes, it exists!) and veggie burgers if at Cheesecake Factory, sushi at Mr. YUM, MR. CHOW, AKASHI, and of course peruvian food at GRAN INKA, CEVICHE 105 and taking advantage that their is a plague of Peruvians in Miami, therefore Peruvian restaurants and not to mention even peruvian soda sold at supermarkets, I am just as Guy Fieri...except without the N'sync like spiked bleach blonde hair.

CUT OFF SHORTS

Cut off shorts, the item that every girl has/needs in her closet, the everyday type of short, a life savior in my opinion. Nothing to wear? Don't feel like braining out a cool and original look? Throw on a piece of cut offs and mix it up with WHATEVER. This time I chose studded 3 belt booties and a blousy like tank. Comfortable and simple outfit for a night out in Miami
Hows your summer going? How your winter going (if you're in the souther hemisphere). What are you up to? I can't believe I'm admitting this, but though I couldn't be happier in my yearly travel to "what-used-to-be-home", I actually miss Madrid! It's amazing how every time I come back to the places I used to live in, I see it all with different eyes, from a different perspective, and this time in particular, you come to notice all the things you idealize from far away... 
(Once again, excuse the bad quality pictures, this time they were taken with my phone)

Shorts rotos, la prenda que toda chica tiene/necesita en su closet/armario, el tipo de short que puedes usar con todo y todos los dias, un salvavidas en mi opinion. No tienes nada que ponerte? No te apetece armar y pensar en un atuendo original y divertido? Empieza con unos shorts rotos y mezclalos con lo que quieras! En este caso opte por una camiseta de mangas cual blusita, y unas botitas con tachuelas y 3 correas. Un outfit simple y comodo para una noche por Miami.
Como llevan el verano? Como llevan el invierno por el hemisferio sur? Estén donde estén espero que lo estén disfrutando! No puedo creer que estoy admitiendo esto pero...por mas feliz que estoy en mi viaje anual a "lo que antes era casa", hecho mucho de menos Madrid! Es increíble como cada vez que regreso a alguno de los lugares en donde vivía, lo veo con ojos distintos, desde diferentes perspectivas, y esta vez en particular, te das cuenta de todas las cosas que desde lejos idealizamos...
