The shoot took place in one of Gaudi’s many masterpieces, Park Guell. I’ve been to Park Guell 2 years ago with some friends. Funny how, at that time, we were pretending to be models shooting at one of the cave-like structures. We were trying to imitate America’s Next Top Model’s finale. Fast-forward to now, I’m actually modeling at Park Guell, right smack in the middle of the stairs facing the entrance! Surreal.
For my look, I went for casual chic–something a young and sophisticated girl would wear to a casual night out with friends. I paired a beaded jacket over a beaded tank top. Usually, beaded over beaded, especially shiny ones, can look a bit too much. But I think there’s a way to work around it. Like in this case, I made sure my top’s beads are different from that of my jacket’s. My top has black glass beads on it while my jacket is full of sequins, so naturally, my top and jacket are different in texture and finish. This somehow made my simpler all-black top complimentary to my attention-grabbing black and gold jacket. If you’ve noticed, I’m also wearing 3 different necklaces. You’d think they might clash with my already sparkly clothes but with the right accessories, I think they can blend in really well.
Because my upper-torso is already mega stylized, I chose simpler pieces for the rest. To keep the look young, I added striking primary colors to the mix through my electric blue pants and bright red orange bag. I wore a few gold rings too and refrained from wearing any bracelets. Finished off with classic black pumps with gold accents to tie everything together.
