You know how most people don’t like to grow older? I think it starts at the age of 25. After 25 you start feeling like you need to hold on to the past, as those were the best days of your life. I know a lot of my girl friends that stress and obsess over turning 30. But thankfully and luckily for me, I still feel like a four and half year old kid who cannot wait to grow up!! Ask my nephew how old he is and he will always answer as “4 yrs and 8 months” or “I’m almost 5”, waiting to become older as soon as possible.

But there is a reason why getting older doesn’t bother me. Its because of amazing women like Christina Viera. I want to be like her so bad and when I get “bigger” [cause “older” doesn’t sound like the right word here] and the faster the better, I will be her!! I can’t wait for that to happen.

How brilliant and fun is her outfit. And imagine if only her outfit is soo much fun, how much fun would her personality or art or work be? I truly have been waiting and waiting to share her pictures with you guys. I love her entire outfit so much that I have been looking for the pieces she’s wearing for myself…[but I can’t afford any of it right now… damn the freaking profession of underpaid architecture! Really!]. I am also posting all the pictures I have of her cause I love each one of them. No editing. She was so adorable and gave us so much of her time.  After I was done soaking in all her coolness I realized that a lot of other people that started taking pictures of her too. Total paparazzi style …copycats I say!! I saw her first!!!  Hehe… j/k ..

 I could not stop hopping around like a bunny the whole day after we spotted her. I still am super excited about having found her. Le sigh!

Christina Viera is an artist and painter working at an art gallery. Her designs for hats and jewelry are also sold at Patricia.  I have been dreaming about what her closet looks like and all the goodies in it!! You can thank me later for having found her for you ;-) [modesty? Whatttt? ….lol]

  2. Wooooh.... Dont knwo if its NY... or your eye... Amazing people... and a very intresting picutre.. the hat looks so.. cutely naughty!

  3. Woohh! that's something! Love her ecstatic fashion sense!

  4. I wanna be like her when I am older, zany and 100% original!

  5. NY is the place to be isn't it?


  6. I want to be her too. I want to be chic, fashionable, and take risks as an older lady. My grandma wore bikinis well into her 60s, and I want to be just like her.

  7. YES! Exactly! I want to be her when I grow up...or Auntie Mame, or Iris Apfel, these ladies are my newest heroes!

  8. Hmm..This was a very special outfit. I love that people dare to be different!

  9. Very original "girl" :)
    Thank you so much for the visit


  10. She is such a character... I love her confidence.

    I too am not scared to grow old (I am old! Hahaha!)... I love growing old. It's what you do with yourself as you grow older that matters.

    Have a great day! xoxo
