A woman with the “boyish” touch

by Lee Oliveira on July 5, 2010

To love this infinite world of “Fashion“, I believe you must be able to use all your senses.

Nicola wears top by Zambezi, vest by Nom D, pants by 3.1 Phillip Lim, boots by Anne Demeulmeester, bag by Fendi, bracelet by Tiffany & Co, vintage necklace and fragrance Monicle by Comme des Garcons

  • touching the beautiful silk scarfs from Hermes
  • Smelling the unforgettable Chanel No. 5
  • Seeing that gorgeous Balenciaga bag
  • Tasting that delicious “hot chocolate” recipe from Souvlaki For the Soul
  • Be the first to hear the latest chic trend in fashion

So today I would like to dedicate this post to the beautiful  “women” out there.

It’s one of the reasons I admire several designers with their uniqueness of versatility. Allowing all of us having an individual way to express our personality through their clothes.

In these photos Nicola has given me her individual style. From the youthfulness of a see through top to the masculine touch of a men’s tuxedo vest. Not a lot of women can wear something like this. Nicola wears it well.

She also told me that she changes her style ever season. And guest what? She is going to wear vintage next summer 2010/11 in Australia. I am sure she can wear it because she has the perfect attitude.

I must confess that I am not good remembering names, but remarkable names that have been on my past blog posts before like Daniela, Maria, Tom, Chay, Liz, Sabrina, Bruce Djite, Jazz, Marie, Grant, Isabel are impossible to forget. They are all beautiful people in their own special way.

How can I forget you Nicola. You are a tough chick. You have both of my thumbs up because you “rock” girl. And I can’t wait to see you again next Spring/Summer 2010/11 in Sydney to photograph you in vintage.

I like to agree that hot chocolates never go out of style and are always in fashion. I’d be happy to share one with you and Nicola! Thanks for the shout out!

She is perfect in this look…and the bag is absolutely fantstic. It’s the first time that I see in a blog a photo of a balenciaga’s bag that isn’t the classic motorcycle…

She’s a really pretty blonde lady and the black and lace looks great on her. Being fine featured and blonde allows her to go that little bit masculine. Great photos against the fountain!

a woman with style. a style which reminds me of a bygone era, perhaps the 70s? i can’t put my finger on what it is exactly…the print on the lace sleeve, the hair, the waistcoat…all of the above? ah, the 70s! what’s not to love. Cheers!
