Blackstage is a project I’ve been working on for the past year and it’s finally here! I created this online store along with a friend with the purpose of offering unique, bohemian and fun pieces for those gypsy souls that love to travel, listen to music and just wear breezy and fun clothing.For the first collection, ‘Sun was high’ we captured the island life in two scenarios that define this life style: the beach and the desert. The collections are small but full of pieces that you can rock from day to night. Click here and shop away: www.shopblackstage.com

“The sky needs a black backdrop for the stars to shine.” Said Mara Hoffman regarding her Fall 2014 collection. We are used to her colorful and vibrant pieces but this time she switched up. Her biggest inspiration this season was from
Northern Africa, Moroccan rugs, Egyptian camels, and Bedouin jewelry. The collection offers a lot of variety. Mixing and matching won’t be a problem.
Still dealing with the NYC blues! Can’t wait to go back.

Off my check list for this year’s resolutions? Attending a music festival. The Governors Ball was the best thing that has ever happen to me. Three days of amazing music. To make this experience even more exciting I got some of my friends to make outfits for the festival. My main goal? To be comfortable but keep it fun and interesting. Boots where my best friends during the festival since they are perfect for running around from stage to stage. My mind is still daydreaming about the festival. I hope I can attend another one soon!
These past few months have been a crazy roller coaster ride. Getting over life changes can be very difficult but I’m happy to say today everything happened for the better. I am the happiest I could ever be, I have great friends who support me and love me. I
feel blessed and lucky to be surrounded by so many people who get me, who share the same passions and who are simply fun. I tend to be a romantic by nature and that is accompanied by very intense moments of melancholy but I have learned to embrace that darkness and move on from it. Life is great and it is definitely important to take time to get to know yourself, travel, get lost and most importantly find the beauty in everything.
I recently bought my first wide brim fedora and I fell in love! I’ve never been able to wear hats that much because I have a big head (I need it to keep all this ideas) so its very hard to find hats that fit me. Now that I’ve discovered a new world of hats by size on ebay, I can’t stop browsing around looking for this kind of hat. For festival season I really want to get another one but in grey or brown. Wide brim hats make any bohemian outfit 10 times better! ❤
