Tales of the city: Downtime by Joel Slocum

Who knew putting all activities on hold while seeking for the perfect spot to rest ones eyes, body and soul, could end up looking so utterly glamorous? Rocking every angle of her body ever so graciously, model Alisha Judje shines a different kind of light over the New York City streets. With Joel Slocum behind the camera, the urban tale gets to be rewritten with a cutting-edge Sleeping Beauty cast in the main role.

Bold, adventurous yet following closely into a sophisticated path, Julia Andryeyeva’s take on the fall 2013 fashion trends translated to a feminine, almost majestic styling approach. Rich textures, effortless layers, a subdued color palette and statement pieces of jewelry make the transition to fall feel more tempting than ever. Colorful tights, sleek ankle boots and chic hats complete the autumn inspired series of portraits.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
