I will never be able to understand why people love wearing black so much. While I can definitely appreciate an all black outfit and opt for this option myself at times, I find it way more interesting to wear white (if you hadn't noticed yet!) or bright fun colors! So of course when I spotted this chiffon off the shoulders baby doll dress at Raul Penaranda's Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Show I knew I had to have it! Pair it with sparkly Givenchy heels and find an amazing colorful mural and you've got yourself a happy blogger!
A foggy fall morning in the city and a perfectly empty Brooklyn bridge: nothing better to shoot this beautiful Raul Penaranda outfit. The skirt is actually a gorgeous column beaded gown with a sexy slit on the side and very plunging neckline, but layer it with this floral crop top and it becomes perfectly day-appropriate.
A stunning little white dress, sparkly heels and New York City at the end of a busy day.
It doesn't get any more magical than this.
Hope you'll all enjoy the second look I shot in collaboration with Raul Penaranda and the amazing Gabriel! We chose the Lincoln Center because of its gorgeous architecture and stunning white marble buildings. Little did we know that "professional photoshoots" are not allowed so after the security guard warned us the once we had to be super sneaky and shoot all of these pictures as fast as possible! Oh jeez, the things bloggers do for a good picture.. Haha Hope you'll appreciate these even more now that you know the little anecdote that goes with them. ;)
Dress: Raul Penaranda - Shoes: Givenchy - Earrings: Zara
These heels are sparkly perfection!
Sometimes real life is gets so perfect that for just a few quick seconds you forget about everything else around you and feel like you're in a fairy tale. Last month I spent 10 days in NYC for NYFW: among all the fashion shows and bloggers events I got the chance to meet so many amazing new people so incredibly passionate about what they do.
One of them was Raul Penaranda, a fashion designer based in New York, whose fashion show I attended for the second time this year (which you probably saw on my Instastory). I was so impressed with his SS17 collection: his aesthetic stands apart and all of his pieces reflect his innate capacity to mix edge and sophistication.
Gabriel is another one of those people whose passion and vision instantly transport you somewhere else. His pictures are always absolutely breathtaking, no matter if he's shooting the NYC skyline or a fashion model.
And it's when people like these come together that something magical happens.
Gabriel and I shot these pictures in Grand Central. I am wearing a stunning Raul Penaranda gown from his Spring Summer 2017 ready to wear collection and Givenchy gold sparkly heels.
