The Crystal Avenue

Meet me on the Crystal Avenue

April Showers

Happy April, everyone!

As April showers bring May flowers, I took the opportunity to shoot in the light rain the bay area experienced a few weeks ago for today’s look on The Crystal Avenue. I decided for “April Showers” to channel Wednesday Addams from the Addams Family for a little inspiration and to set the mood for the rainy, cold afternoon. With Wednesday Addams dark and sadistic nature, her every day wear consists of black dresses with a pop of white in the collar region, and her infamous pig tail braids. For “April Showers,” I kept Wednesday’s style of a collared dress from H&M in the colors black and gray, with simple a french braid and a faded red lip, as I wanted to create and hone into a monochromatic look. To complete the “April Showers,” I chose my trusty pair of leather black ankle booties from Aldo for height and a little bit of ease for strolling in the rain.

If you have been following me since I started the Crystal Avenue, April 2nd also marks my sister Michelle’s birthday, who also happens to be one of the photographers I work with. Stop by her blog or her social media links and wish her a happy birthday. Michelle, thank you so much for being my sister and going through this journey called life with me. Your love and support does not go unnoticed, especially in the last 3 months. Have a wonderful birthday and we shall celebrate in style soon.
