there’s your sister, your brother, your cousin … and then there’s my cousin, Sentina. Charismatic and Eccentric are two (mild) words that can be used to describe her. but it’s her infectious zaniness that made this photo shoot one of the easiest i’ve ever done. she even took me out for City Island shrimp after! and trust me, that’s HUGE.
WHO: My name is Sentina, age 23 from the Boogie Down Bronx. I’m a full-time amazing person. I have a passion for fashion and an itch for accessories that can POP POP POP an outfit!! I’m also a full-time manager and student.
“I love these accessories because whenever you have an outfit which is missing something spunky you can simply add accessories and it will make your outfit pop. I love the loudness and obnoxiousness but also the posh and cute look it gives to any outfit perfectly put together. I love accessories, it’s something about the way you can jazz up a boring dress with throwing on a chunky necklace or a set of bracelets. You can hide behind your accessories. Having a bad hair day? Throw on a headband that’s bedazzled or one with feathers or a bow.”
“My inspirations for my outfits and style come from traveling and looking through magazines. Going shopping and from the amazing artists like Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry to fantastic designers like Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui and Givenchy and my fav of fav’s, Marc Jacobs, it is pretty clear that I take a strong inspiration from these people to create an outfit. Ciao!!”
