I have been obssesed with my new chucks and I literally carry them with me everyday to work. I normally wear them walking home and on my morning ride to work. You know, blend in with the cool group that walks home lol. Nonetheless, they look good with everything. See these
Recently I decided to make a trip to my parent’s
homeland of Dominican Republic. My time on the island is always bustling with
contradictions as I have to split my time between the capital of Santo Domingo
and the small village of Juma-Bonao. Santo Domingo is a bursting city that is
attempting its claim as one of the up and coming capitals of the Caribbean, it
is very reminiscent of Bangkok for those that have traversed to Southeast Asia.
Juma-Bonao on the other hand is very rustic with few paved roads and
electricity being the luck of the draw.
All of this has an impact on the style of dress
of its people. While I was there I borrowed from the “campesinos” (the name
given to people of the country) and wore straw hats along with white dresses to
reminisce of the old money daughters. Below are a few examples of different
looks that I emulated during my mini vacation.
