Shoe Things | Spring St.

I have always been an avid admirer of the perfect low shoe, sneakers, flats you name it, if it doesn’t elevate my height and force me to walk like a new born gazelle, then I will wear it! So of course you can imagine my immediate joy at purchasing  a pair of unconventional white slip on sneakers from Charles and Keith. Now I know I may sound biased as I own a pretty decent amount of their pieces but, what I love about their shoes are that they set themselves apart from other shoes, in that they do not fit into the mold of standard everyday shoes in terms of what fits the standard. There are also a pair of flats that I can say were very aesthetically pleasing. The flats from their new velvet collection have a pointy toe with a really cool rounded heel, low enough that I can wear it everyday, but dressy enough, where I can wear it out on special occasions as well. Donned with a pair of oversized jeans and a white button down, I share with you how I went from casual with white slip-on’s to slightly dressy with flats with the same outfit. Trust me shoes relly do make the difference.

SOHO IN SPRING

After what seemed like a never ending tundra that is New York City weather, the sun finally decided to grace us with warm weather, and what better way to do that with a fun photoshoot in soho with your best friend. Donned in head to  toe winter/ spring attire we took to the cobbled stoned streets of Lafeyette in SOHO with talented photographer Ivana Miric capturing every moment. We selected these outfits because of it’s winter/ spring versatility, adding on to that are my favorite go to statement jewelry pieces from Gramerci Designs, the watch of every minimalists dream from Marc Bale, and my black and gold specs from zerouv.

A.KAMERA | LAFAYETTE ST.

Happy belated New Year to you all! Marking the new year with my first post of January, I thought I would go a different route this course, with the tables (or lens in this case), turned towards me. Instead of the usual focus on others and “hiding” behind my camera I decided, (with the coercion of a friend) to take that step in front of the camera. At first I was a little apprehensive as I am not as comfortable in front of the lens as I am behind, but it soon became second nature. I’m especially looking forward to sharing this look with you all, a very simple yet casual approach to the ever-dropping temperature in New York city. As the weather gets colder people tend to struggle to find that perfect look, but to also stay warm. In this look I am wearing probably one of the warmest and most comfortable sweaters, from Gudrun & Gudrun, the classic turtleneck with slight bell sleeves, were what sold me on this look, it being comfortable was the cherry on top. Pairing it up with a vintage coat and jeans made for the perfect winter look.

CHELSEA MA | NOLITA

A few weeks ago I had the chance to photograph Chelsea Ma, by far one of the most down to earth and ambitious individuals, I have met. One of the things that compelled me to photograph her and share her story with you was her aesthetic view on a myriad of things, whether it be fashion, traveling or even life, she is definitely one to inspire. As she pursues a career in design at Parsons New School, she manages to stay grounded in the midst of it all, and how she manages to do so is an accomplishment in and of itself. Be sure the check out her page to get a glimpse of the world through her eyes. Without further adieu here’s Chelsea Ma on the streets on NOLITA.

MADISON BOOTH & EVAN SUPPLE | SOUTH STREET SEAPORT

“Ballet : a theatrical art form using dancing, music, and scenery to convey a story, theme, or atmosphere”

I have always appreciated and admired how beautiful and graceful a ballet dancer looked, the poise they project was something I have always wanted to capture on film, the ethereal allure and artistry of a dancer that commands attention was what I wanted to project this week when I photographed dancers Madison Booth and Evan Supple. Both hail from Toronto, Canada where they trained for some number of years at Elite Danceworx in the GTA, The location of the shoot was in the South street seaport area, coincidentally on Halloween, where the challenge was trying to find a good spot for photos whilst navigating the costumed crowds. Both dancers were a joy to photograph bringing their own personality and gravitas to the shoot, The emotion and artistry conveyed during the shoot was reflected in the collection of photographs I am super happy to share with you today!

Valentina Robayo | STREETSTYLE : BLEEKER ST.

This week I had the opportunity to photograph my good friend Valentina Robayo. Valentina has always had an effortless and great sense of style, ranging from eclectic to trendy but always one that was her own. The challenge this week was to capture images that complimented her outfit and personality and to deviate away from the cliched location spots for photographs.  Which is how we found ourselves on Bleeker Street. After having lunch at By. Chloe, which was in the area we decided to just walk around get a feel for the locale and see what worked best. New York City is known for being overrun with taxi’s, and because I love taking risks to get that good shot, it was difficult trying not to get run down by a plethora of vehicles, pedestrians and/or  yellow taxi’s. Several photographs later, we managed to get great photo’s that I’m excited to share with you all today. Check it out! Details on her outfit can be found below.
