Style Geek: 9.1.11 | Black & White

For some time now I have been wanting to add some outfit shots for my Style Geek column which I had abandoned since my Boarding School Drop Out post a year ago! Just recently I have decided to change things up a bit and start featuring outfit shots for this column as well as fashion inspiration. I also needed some new images for my site so I teamed up with my good friend Angel Acevedo at his swanky downtown Miami loft for a photo shoot sesh and here are the results! His apartment is modern-industrial and I am obsessed with it’s black & white color palette as well as the gorgeous view. It made for a perfect location for these outfit shots in particular which featured the same colors and minimalistic style.


NARS Belle De Jour lipstick mixed with MAC Velvet Teddy (This creates a great nude for my skin tone!)

MAC Orb (all over lid and brow bone) and Cork (crease, liner smudging, and brows- so versatile!) eye shadows

MAC Black track gel liner winged at the outer corners

NARS Laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush (My favorite blush bronzer combo) & Albatross highlighting powder

I wore:

American Apparel white bodysuit

H&M black harem pants

Forever 21 black bowler hat

Marc by Marc Jacobs black and white watch

I wore:

Express Tie-Back military shirt in black

Guess white shorts with black & white  buttons

American Apparel Sheer Luxe Punctuation pantyhose (I seriously love these to pieces!)


Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Mike Perry

This book is a collection of hand drawn typography. It is so inspiring! I have one in my book collection and if you love hand drawn type, you should too!

Thanks for tuning in! Hope you enjoyed this post. More style photos and inspiration soon to come! Special thanks to Angel Acevedo for shooting these photos and for letting us use his lovely abode!
