art in the city :: Hoy Santa Barbara

Some local artists took on the walls of a small barrio and turned them into huge canvases. It was fun to watch them through the process and enjoy their creativity. Here are some of my pictures. SB1 SB2 SB3 SB4 SB5 SB6 SB7 SB8 SB9 SB10 SB11 SB12 SB13

And of course, it did inspire me to translate it to the fashion world. Graffiti inspired clothes are great statement pieces, and they are best worn with other neutral pieces. GRAFFITI-long

winter trip to evansville


I’ve been enjoying the cold weather, while visiting my sister at Evansville IN, only because I get to play with coats and boots. Sometimes it is hard to decide what to wear because the main factor is to not get cold, while maintaining a fashionable look.

The trick? Always wear a cool piece, like a scarf or pair of boots, and work your way around it.fauxwinter

A pop of color and animal print never go wrong. bikerdenim

Denim is great for mixing different textures.


Statement pieces stand out more with basics.
