I am back New York ❤️

I was trying to explain my job as a digital influencer and someone at the table mentioned being like Demi Moore’s movie “The Joneses”. In the movie the family persuades the whole neighborhood into a perfect material life that doesn’t exist.

That got me thinking…

Is designer bags all you see in me? Am I only lurking you into believing that a perfect life exists?

Sorry to break it to you but my life isn’t perfect. I constantly fear the instability of a digital job. The daily struggle between family, friends and work. A different profession where new information is being delivered daily. And of course the competition of wanting to keep up.

I just really hope you find more in my words and pictures than fancy clothes. I hope that I am able to inspire your own truth. To believe in yourselves, break boundaries, stereotypes, and above all to believe in the power of your dreams when you work hard for them.

No one is perfect but in that effort to achieve perfection you will find your own best. And that is quite alright.

With love,

Neto

Tratando de explicar mi trabajo como un factor de influencia digital y una persona mencionó ser como la película de Demi Moore “The Joneses”. En la película la familia convence a todo el vecindario que una vida material perfecta existe.

Eso me hizo pensar…

¿Bolsos de diseñador es todo lo que ven en mí? ¿Estoy sólo creándoles la fantasía de que existe una vida perfecta?

Siento decírselos, pero mi vida no es perfecta. Me temo constantemente la inestabilidad de un trabajo digital. La lucha diaria entre familia, amigos y trabajo. Una profesión diferente, donde se entrega diariamente nueva información. Y por supuesto, el concurso de querer mantener el ritmo.

Solo espero que encuentren más en mis palabras e imágenes que ropa de lujo. Espero que sea capaz de inspirarlos a su propia verdad. A creer en ustedes mismos. A romper barreras, estereotipos y sobre todo a creer en el poder de sus sueños cuando se trabaja duro para ellos.

Nadie es perfecto, pero en ese esfuerzo por alcanzar la perfección encontrarás tu mejor ser. Y eso esta bastante bien.
Con mucho cariño,

Neto

Oh my Dior!

The perfect summer suit can be a little tricky to find, but after a large extend of research (jajaja not really) I found mine at Zara. This royal blue suit is the perfect piece missing for all my summer looks; that blue goes perfectly with everything and I can wear it completely or mix and match the blazer and the pants. For this look I decided to take it down a nudge and actually made it very casual and a little sporty in some sense. Pairing the suit with an amazing t-shirt from a good old friend of mine HB designs was the perfect balance between elegance and a class clown making my outfit “best all around”. My “Oh my Dior!” white t couldn’t be complete with my pair of so real sunnies from Dior, they where like a match made in heaven. Keeping it cool and casual I wore my white super \star Adidas (confession I am obsessed with them and have like 3 pairs) the white kicks stand out amazingly from that royal blue and makes the whole outfit a perfect summer look.

Denim Day

Sorry for the silent treatment kiddies but I’ve been MIA for a lot of reasons. The most important is that I was finding new and exciting places for you. Those shenanigans will come on the blog soon but for now check us out.
Back in New York City and the weather is on point, sunny days with refreshing nights the perfect combo. So for todays post we are all wearing denim, the perfect fabric that transitions from warm to cool weather in no time. My complete look is made up by different shades of denim fabric. My denim shirt from Ted Baker went perfectly with my Hudson jeans and to transition from warm to cool my denim jacket from Hollister was the perfect match. This denim jacket has extra value for me because it was a gift from my aunt ages ago, recently I discovered it roaming around my closet and it was an instant love. Last but not least you know I am a huge fan for accessorizing so to continue with the denim fever my Chanel graffiti backpack was the perfect item missing. Adding a little pop to the denim ensemble my purple Adidas x Pharrell Williams were the right amount of color and on my eyes the classic Dior so real sunnies that blended perfectly with all that denim.

Check out my awesome friends Igee Okafor and McLavin Style for more looks!!

Cerulean Blue

The calendar says spring but the wind says chilly. After up and down thermostat weather like situation, Manhattan hasn’t quit yet made up its mind. Today the weather is a little chilly and we are in the need of a warm coat. What better way to say spring then with this amazing cerulean blue coat from Diane Von Furstenberg, keeping me war but with the right amount of brightness that screams spring. Accessorizing with the poudre lock bag from Valentino focusing on the contrast of the patent leather with the blue coat, my brown leather aviators from Chloe and my white superstar kicks from Adidas. Continuing in the tints and shades of blue my Topman navy blue pants were the perfect combos to this cold spring look.

                  

It’s all about the blues…

It’s definitely starting to feel like spring here in the city. After a harsh winter, New Yorkers can finally stop layering and dress a little more cheerful. For this look I am wearing top, bottom, and coat by Mr. Nieves New York all in blue tones with the most interesting patterns. I am wearing black thick-framed Kaibosh sunnies to protect me from the strong rays of the sun; we so happily are gasping in. To continue in the tones of blue I decided to wear Rain Man blue boots because the weather channel said we would have a few drops here and there. You know what they say “its better to be safe then sorry”. Last but definitely not least my Chanel graffiti backpack was the perfect accessory my outfit needed, mixing in the tones of grey and blue popping out perfectly.

Hunter Season

After yesterday’s snowy afternoon the streets of Manhattan woke up to a beautiful white day. The sun is up but the snow is all over the place so for today’s outfit I planned to use my black Hunter rain boots to help avoid or in my case jump on puddles of snow. The weather is nice so my reaped jeans from TopMan do the trick, on top I layered with my H&M denim shirt that matched perfectly with the jeans. Layering once more with a cream Lacoste V-neck sweater that blended perfectly with the amazing chocolate brown cape from Zara. To accessorize and complete the look for a fun snowy day my dark brown Ralph Lauren leather gloves went perfect with the ensemble. My brown leather aviators from Chloé gave the perfect touch to the whole look, besides with all that white snow working as reflectors I needed something to cover my eyes. On my arm candy I am wearing the amazing Breda watch with a brown strap but a gold and blue face matching perfectly with my gold Love de Cartier bracelet. Last but not least you guys know I am a sucker for hats so my camel brown fedora from Zadig & Voltaire was the perfect option for this denim/cream/brown look to take on the snowy streets of New York.
