White canvas in the city

                  This weekend was like a clean & fresh start. With the last few weeks of Spring many changes are coming and Im excited for whats next. Right now Im counting the weeks until I get to travel back home and see my family and friends. Mexico is a beautiful place and I cant wait to go relax in paradise. But for now, I have the city as my white canvas to enjoy and explore. Im referring to the art installation on Sunset Boulevard of course. As many of you might have heard, Bates Motel is currently washed out in from floor to ceiling, to the palm trees surrounding the area and it is absolutely stunning. Artist Vincent Lamouroux covered every inch of the abandoned building in a ecological lime wash paint and it has been the dominating source of inspiration for the citizens of LA, myself included;) And after a day of running around the city with my friend Karen from Little Black Shell we decided it was time to pay the visit!

I constantly get style inspiration from what’s surrounding me, I love to wander through the city and apply that inspiration to my everyday lifestyle, this shoot was influenced by this temporary form of art and its gorgeous location.

Louis Vuitton Series 2

This month I’ve been checking out the art scene in LA to keep my inspiration going. And this weekend’s choice was the Louis Vuitton Series 2 Exhibit, it was hands down my favorite one so far! My blogger friend Karen is usually just as excited as I am to check out new places, so we decided to check it out. The exhibition consisted of several rooms that represented the Past, Future and Present collections of the house of Louis Vuitton and each one was incredible!

Going in, the first thing you see is the LV logo in 3D followed by a room with hologram images in large scale (I posted a video below) which was insane! The exhibit also had a pure white room where everything from the mannequins to the floors and walls was blended in continuos light. This room was dedicated mainly to accessories so every piece stood out beautifully. But my absolute favorite part was the Infinite Room which showcased the Spring 2015 runway show in a 360º degree mirrored room. I have to admit I was in awe with the level of creativity that was put into this exhibition, it was very inspiring. If you are in the area and you have a love for Fashion and Art, then you must pay a visit. Trust me its worth it! I posted the dates and the address below;) There’s a couple more events I’ll be going to in the next few weeks so follow along for more;)

W Magazine & Meeting Chiara Ferragni

Hi Everyone!

     This weekend I went to LACMA to see W Magazine’s Exhibit and it was brilliant! The exhibition was created as a way to remind us of the value of photography and to pay tribute to those who have contributed over the years behind camera such as stylists, makeup artists and the photographers themselves. In the world of Fashion it is easy to forget about all the work and effort its put into every photo shoot, about the message it conveys and the talent behind it. The visual overload we go through on a daily basis has lead us to devalue that creative form of expression. This is a celebration of W Magazine’s best work over the years.

On this visit I of course wanted to walk around LACMA and visit other exhibitions so I took a few photos of my favorites from that day. There are some amazing paintings from Matisse and Picasso that I really loved as well as a few from Andy Warhol. I wasn’t aloud to take photos of those and I believe you should always respect the art so I took my time and enjoyed every piece. As I was doing just that, I see a blogger I really love and admire… Chiara Ferragni, she was walking right in front of me with her crew. I had no idea she was going to be there so it I was really surprised, but I couldn’t let the moment pass. I was with my friend Karen so we walked right up to her, greeted her and her company and asked if we could take a photo, she accepted very nicely in her italian accent so we took the photo and let her go on with her busy day. I have to say, meeting two bloggers in one month is more than I expected, I feel very lucky! But wether you run into your favorite blogger or not it is still pretty fun to visit a museum. There’s something about walking around on a rainy day and admiring the paintings around you that gets me all inspired. So I invite you to pay a visit this month, you won’t regret it! Here are some photos I wanted to share with you…

The W Magazine Exhibit will be there until February 22 so for all of you who are in the area stop by! And I have to be honest, although its beautifully done it is also very small, the good thing is that entrance is Free also you get as many free W Magazines as you want and afterwards you can always enjoy the rest of the museum. So in my opinion its not a bad way to spend the day. Stay inspired!
