Born in the wrong Era!
I must say I had an Amazing sunday in the Erie speedway track and stubbled upon these old-school racing busses splattered in Graffiti which I thought were awesome not to mention the fact that its fall, my favorite season! Its pretty cool to see how people use the art of Graffiti to express themselves cause there is no BS! It is what it is
The art of being Spontaneous 😉
Enjoy and hope everyone has a ridiculously amazing day tomorrow! ✌
I showed you the pictures, now I’m leaving you with one of his films where everything I described is shown! Gregory Colbert’s famous Nomadic Museum!
All of his work was done while he traveled to India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Dominica, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tonga, Namibia, and Antarctica.
“In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals. The images depict a world that is without beginning or end, here or there, past or present.”
—Gregory Colbert, Creator of Ashes and Snow
Mind Blowing “Ashes and Snow”
Some people believe in chance, but I’m definitely not one of them. There is no such thing as accidents. Wherever life leads you, that is exactly where you’re supposed to be. Shit happens! Life works that way and I was exactly where I needed to be in 2008: El Zócalo, Mexico City. I was introduced to the world of Gregory Colbert, one of the most amazing photographers out there. His work was beyond mind-blowing, far from anything I had seen before. A Nomadic Museum built for “Ashes and Snow,” you would walk into a massive bamboo building surrounded by water and gigantic pictures in sepia hanging from the sides. It followed rooms where his films were projected, a total zen! Every one of his photographs exhibited peacefulness, serenity, and a harmony many people do not know of. Literally, my mind was blown in every sense of the word! He was one to inspire my love for photography and my craving to see the world differently.
The King’s Charm
Charles Johnston, AKA King Charles, became one of my favorite artists since I listened to his songs. They’re mind-blowing! I have an odd taste in music, and somehow he manages to blend my favorite sounds into his work: Indie, jazz, pop rock, afrobeat, hip hop and a little bit of folk keeping the vibe up-beat. He is an incredible artist, not to mention his eccentric fashion taste, which I happen to love. He clearly demonstrates this in all his videos, as well as in the women acting in them. The double-breasted suites, buttoned down shirts, and classic flamboyant style are a representation of his personality, not to mention his famous dreadlocks. I’ll leave you to one of my favorite songs of his: Mississippi Isabel. Enjoy!

I have a Gypsy soul and I was born for LIVING!
Were you born in the wrong era? In my case, I think I should have been born in the 1920’s and 70’s! Yet somehow I can’t complain, I get to have a taste of everything, that’s how epic fashion is. Tonight I’ve been listening to a mix called “Happy Daze” which is all about laying back, chilling and good vibes and the 70’s was all about fun, freedom, enthusiasm, practicality, and beauty. Luckily the 70’s are back! So to all of those with a gypsy and hipster soul this post is dedicated to you, and of course to all those fashionistas out there who love everything about fashion. During the 70’s individuality and freedom reigned. When it came to clothing people enjoyed wearing ragged jeans, bright colors, tie-dye shirts, maxi dresses, midis, mini skirts, ponchos, satin or denim flared trousers, decorated vests and jeans with rhinestones, Mexican peasant blouses, high waisted pants and hot pants, jumpsuits and lamé, prints, bowed blouses, crochet swimsuits, cardigans, and silk blouses. When it came to accessories huge sunglasses, lots of bracelets, oversized earrings, feathers, turbans, big floppy hats, high-waisted belts, and platform shoes were super hip. Sound familiar? Now we can see all of these in runways and every single store you go to. I can promise you that wherever you go shopping you’ll find something to give your outfit those bohemian glamour touches. What I Love most about the 70’s is that people lived with high standards of autonomy and independence and when it came to fashion whatever people wore they made it their own. Awesomeness to me!
