Moda Urbana 7.27.09: Strike a pose (with poise)

Trained models aren’t the only ones that can look good behind the camera. I was lucky to catch some people who were not only willing to let me take their pic, but posed like a pro for Moda Urbana. –Victoria Molinar aka “Giggles”

Moda Urbana 7.21.09: Fun with scarves

A scarf in the dead of summer is a very bold fashion statement.

See how Cynthia drapes the scarf in a long circular way, blocking the eye from cleavage while dressing up a very casual outfit. This girl has fashion sense and elegance.-Lisa Degliantoni
