New York Doll: a Pretty Provocative photoshoot

Jacket: Viktor Costa for Saks Fifth Avenue
Skirt & bow: H&M
Shoes:  Vintage

O M G.

These pictures are finally up! 
So I'm kinda going crazy right now just because of the fact that I've been wanting to put these pictures up since the summer. 


Alberto Vargas: the master behind the masterpieces. He was so patient during this shoot! It was such a humid day out that night but we stuck it through!
He is truly such a great talent that I can't even imagine the places he'll go! 

Check out the rest of Alberto Vargas' photography at:

and check out his awesome blog at:

Evalise: She was amazing assisting Alberto and me during this shoot, she definitely knows the ins and outs of what goes on during a shoot! 

Alsenio Espinal: For the makeup and the encouragement. We had so much fun in Sephora playing around with all the different products! 

All in all, I just need to take this time to say how amazing these people are. I honestly, truly believe every single one of them will make it so far in life! Starting Pretty Provocative has opened so many doors for me and I really hope they'll open doors for everyone who supported me in the beginning and from now on.
This goes to show that young talent is what's the next big thing.
 With our passions and dreams, we can really come together and help each other succeed through what we're best at. If it's through photography, makeup, hair or whatever! You can pave your way to your future.
It's your life & you know where you have to go.
God I sound like I just made those really corny speeches after winning a shiny award at an awards show on national television... 


These have to be my favorite H&M ads ever.

LOVE this one!
After entering one of my favorite stores ever, H&M once again catches my eye and my wallet for the hundreth time. I always walk in the store never knowing where to look first. Heading to wherever I saw sparkles, I pass by the newest H&M Winter 2010 magazine and my hand snatches the last one almost immediately. As I'm flipping through the pages, I see probably one of the most intriguing, beautiful dress ever. My eyes are almost bugging out of my head as my jaw drops and I see that, without a doubt, it's Lanvin's newest ad for their collabortation with H&M. Not only are they funny but they're just jaw droppingly (as you've witnessed) beautiful. If their ads were amazing, I can't even think about how much I'm going to be hyperventilating when I see the pieces at the store! Talk about good promotion!  

Ladies and gents, with pieces this good, I think you might have to grab a tent and start camping out because there's bound to be a line!

Check out just a few of the many mouthwatering pieces from Lanvin ♥  H&M collection coming to US stores on November 20th and everywhere else November 23rd!

"Honey! I'm home!"
the dress on the left is AMAZING! ($250) I'm in love & lust...
dress on the right ($200)

"I don't want flowers! I want Lanvin!"

you don't even have to ASK me what's topping my x-mas list...

Alexander Wang Trunk Show

Spring 2011
After editing some photos from some of the shoots I had at a friend's house in Brooklyn, I made my way onto the L train to transfer to the N to 5th Avenue.
I was fortunate enough not to have any school that day since it was Veteran's Day.
It's funny that for most people, teenagers for the most part, aren't really thinking about the fact that that day was dedicated for the brave soldiers who fought for our country. It really is just another lucky day off for most.
Tangent! Sorry! I kinda felt like I needed to mention that.
But anywhoo, I so really excited while I was walking up to Madison Avenue.
Alexander Wang has such an amazing ability in adding comfort, style, and reasonbale pricing to his masterpieces. It's almost as if he designs for the woman who wants to feel sexy but not looking like she's something she's not. If I were wearing Alexander Wang, what would be going through my head is:
this is me, if you like it or not. I don't need to be wearing anything extreme to make a statement.
I am the statement
I wear the clothes. Not the other way around.

the dress on the left looks so much like a painting...

The gold really add a new twist to white jeans!
absolutely love this vest and all its different textured glory!
