Kentucky Blue

I haven't worn this metallic sweater for so long. I first wore it here when I was in San Francisco and during my 20 minute packing time (seriously, I've never packed so fast before!) the sweater caught my eyes and I knew instantly what I was going to wear it with.

Join us at the Factory! Modern Vice x Cloak & Dagger NYC event!


 I am so excited to announce that Dylana and I will be hosting the

Modern Vice "JETT" x Cloak & Dagger NYC event

at the Modern Vice shoe factory, Tuesday December 11th from 8:30pm into the night! We're celebrating our entire JETT collection being held at our favorite NYC store, Cloak & Dagger! Including an in-store Cloak & Dagger exclusive, the VINTAGE JETT!

We've been planning this event for months, and yes, like everything we do at the factory, it's going to be over the top! It's going to be a MYSTICAL night...with live performances by artists, ballerinas, and of course we have some amazing special musical performances ;)

With Andy Warhol's artist "factory," we got inspired and we're making all our ideas that have gone through our head, a reality. The MV factory has already become a place where our favorite artists come for custom shoes...everyone from Olympic gold medalists like Sarah Hughes for ice skates, to our very own rock musicians, like Twin Shadow!  I cannot believe all the amazing people I run into at the place each day. It's also going to be the first time the Modern Vice factory will be up and running late into the night. I'm just happy we can share with everyone how exactly we make shoes!! Dylana and I are super happy to have all of our JETT and BENNI boot cult followers...we have so many new styles for Spring/Summer and now Fall '13 that are about to be released!

But most importantly, I'm inviting 25 of my readers to join in the event!! Simply rsvp to the email below!

RSVP: RSVPmv@efgpr.com

It's going to be such an insane night, and I cannot wait to meet all of you! Also get ready for some killer Benni and JETT boot giveaways night of the event :)

A Wacky Bunch

(Vintage dress from Fuzzy Bellas Vintage, Muuba leather jacket, Nine West x Pamela Love boots, H&M beanie, Hanes tights)

Yep, the Suarez's are a wacky bunch. We're all over 5'10", never have the same opinion on anything, and most importantly, our closets are just about as crazy as one's family can get. There are loads of beanies involved, we each have matching duffle coats, and there are even a few puffers lying around. But believe it or not, we're all lovers of vintage. I took them over to the river to Williamsburg for some thrifting action..and guess what? It was their favorite part of NYC! They claimed it "reminded them of being young again." Ok, mom and dad! My parents didn't really know how to handle the real east coast chill, but luckily, they had Dy and I to show them the way. It's all about the layering!! Fair Isle sweaters, tights, buckled boots. For me, I cannot stop wearing velvet this time of year, only because it's extra warm and thin enough to just wear under a leather jacket. You do end up looking a bit like a prairie biker chick, but ya know, it works! Now I just want to figure out the time I can next borrow Dylana's brightly colored beanie collection...

Bold Moves

We took these photos a couple of weeks ago in LA on a breezy Sunday. Oversized t-shirt dresses are so easy to wear regardless of the weather. I normally wear these during the summer or warmer months with flats and sandals (like here) but for chillier months like this day, I styled it with my favorite knee high boots from Zara and a floppy hat that I used to wear all the time (remember the hat from this post?)

Hope you guys are having a great week and thanks for visiting my blog! xo

Letters from NYC

Here is just a peek inside my UGG Australia "Letters from NYC" campaign shoot. The shoot was simple...and shot where my NYC stories began: in DUMBO, Brooklyn, right by the bridge. Living with a home of artists, I got to go back to my roots. I took the train back to York Ave the morning of our shoot, and it always feels strange going back. There were so many memories from when I lived there. And this was way before my life did a huge 360 in the past year. One of my favorite understated looks is overalls, a tee, and a leather jacket..and so we incorporated this staple look into my shoot. New York's become my home and my base. I love this city more and more every single day.

As part of this campaign, you can watch the video, and donate to the Hurricane Disaster Relief fund :)

On the Dock

(Paul & Joe dress, Vintage camo jacket, "Natalie + Dylana Suarez x Modern Vice" JETT boots)

To this day I still dream about the windy afternoons on the dock in Morocco. Kebabs. Rice. Chilled Coca-Cola. I'm dying for all that the warm weather brings, including mixing and matching just about every printed piece in my suitcase. Finally, just yesterday, I got to stay in, unpack, and kind of arrange my NYC apartment. It's been weeks of being all over the place, that it's hard finding time to organize. Even my parents are cleaning up, packing their bags, and heading back to California after what's been an adventurous 14 days. My life really has done one big flip flop since their last visit! Our past 2 weeks have been crazy, and honestly I'm going to miss them. They really did love getting a taste of my NYC life, and of course, enjoying my lil apartment while I'm out and about. They've even been running around with me to shoots, to and from the airport, and even made multiple trips out to the shoe factory. They're just as exhausted as I am! For now, I'll be dreaming of my next escape...whether it be for work or play.
