Noirness | What's your story?

Bruna Camargo

"It was past midnight in the detective's office. It wasn't until after his third scotch that he heard her high heels speeding down the hall. At once, the door slammed open. There she stood, in the backlit threshold, black fur blending with her dark hair and a certain je ne sais quoi about her."

We all have a story. Some of it is true, some of it is enhanced, most of it is made up of memories we involuntarily tell our brains to store. When we look at others, we paint pictures in our minds of who they are based on what they look like, what they're wearing, the places they frequent. 

It may not be right, or even the right thing to do, but it happens. In one second, we write a perfect stranger's entire life story in our minds.

Recently I've been spread so thinly across all of "adulting" that even though I may have reduced the amount of time spent writing, photographing and storytelling my everyday sartorial choices, it doesn't mean I've put off living and breathing it.

The one current constant in my life that I refuse to give up on, is how I dress. If you have to get dressed regardless, why not do it meaningfully? Some say it may waste your time. Others claim it's insipid or superfluous. However, during a long ass day, when I walk past a mirror and see the reflection of a put-together – and hell, pretty creatively, one might add – it indulges that little man on my shoulder that keeps my heart pounding whenever Fashion Week draws near. 

In college, I used to have this thing called "scrub day" – and no, I didn't go to nursing school. It was a day I'd allow myself to dress like absolute shit in sweatpants and wine-stained sweatshirts. I thought it made me "a down-to-earth chick." Someone who doesn't waste all her time in front of the mirror. But those days were just as long, and halfway through it, if I didn't look terrible to begin with, there was no chance in hell I didn't by now. I'm not sure what I was trying to accomplish by allowing myself a "cheat day" from making thoughtful dressing decisions. Getting dressed a burden. 

So why shouldn't you enjoy telling a cool story about yourself every once in a while? I can have my cake and eat it, too. Image may seem trite. But everyone has one, and we're all being judged by ours, just as we judge others by theirs. The pages about you keep getting written, whether you want them to or not.

Happy 2016, you guys!! Can you believe we've made it this far? Ha! I took a quick break from the blog to relax and spend time with family over the holidays but now we're back to the grind! I hope you've been keeping up with me on Instagram and Snapchat @bruntunes.

I'm continually ever so happy and grateful for all the support and love all of you sent my way in 2015 – it was by far the best year for StyleMile (and for me!) ever. From having dinner with Lena Dunham in Hollywood, to going backstage with Meghan Trainor, to being featured in Marie Claire magazine, it's been quite a ride. I'm hoping to only go up from here! 

2016 is going to bring big things for me – mine and Pedro's wedding is less than 5 months away! Next month I'm jet-setting to an unknown location with my co-workers at Ignite Social Media. Our Mystery Trip location is only revealed at the airport! :O We all have bets – I'm mostly just hoping for sunshine and tequila.

I'm also attending NYFW for the first time in February (OMG!) so stay tuned for coverage! And in April, I'm heading down to Miami with my besties for my bachelorette party, my 27th birthday, and being overall anxious for our June wedding date – luckily Miami does have plenty of margaritas!

I can't wait to watch this year unfold and I would love to hear from you about your big 2016 plans. Are you sticking to your resolutions? Give me the scoop! Either way, I hope this year brings you just as much joy (and tequila) as it's shaping up to bring me. <3

Port: Feliz 2016, gentchyyy!! Nem acredito que chegamos aqui! Dei um tempinho rápido do aqui no blog pra dar uma descansada e aproveitar a família durante as férias, mas agora estamos de volta à rotina! Não esquece de me seguir no Instagram e Snapchat @bruntunes pra estar por dentro sempre!

Estou sempre tão feliz e grata pelo apoio e carinho que recebi em 2015 – foi de longe o melhor ano pro StyleMile. Cheguei a jantar na mesma mesa que Lena Dunham em Hollywood, conheci a Meghan Trainor em Detroit e fui no backstage dela, e também saí na revista Marie Claire. Bom, foi um ano maravilhoso!  

Mas 2016 também vai trazer grandes coisas: começando pelo casamento, daqui menos de 5 meses! Ahh! Mês que vem eu viajo para um destino desconhecido com o pessoal do trabalho na Ignite Social Media. Nossa Mystery Trip só é revelada no aeroporto! :O Todo mundo fez aposta – eu só peço sol e tequila. 

Eu também irei para NYFW pela primeira vez em fevereiro (OMG!) Fiquem de olho na cobertura! E em abril, eu estou indo para Miami cazamigas pra minha festa de despedida de solteira, meu aniversário de 27 anos, e pra roer unhas na ansiedade do casamento em junho – que bom que em Miami tem margaritas!

Eu mal posso! 2016, vamos lá! Espero que este ano também traga muita alegria, amor, coisas boas (e um pouquinho de tequila) pra vocês também!  <3

Fuzzcapades

Bruna Camargo

With the holidays almost here, I noticed that I'm basically pushing the boundaries to feel the most like wearing pajamas without actually having to.

From long sweaters to ugly sweaters to sweating in sweaters (because it's not actually that cold), getting cozy in giant, enormous, fuzzy knits that warm your skin and your heart (plus your butt to boot) is literally the most important way to celebrate the arrival of this mild winter in the Northern hemisphere. Well, that and Netflix and actually chilling.

So come along on this fuzzcapade with me and get ready to fuzz up for yourself, too! 

Port: Com as festas de fim de ano quase chegando, a preguiça bate e a vontade de sair por aí de pijama grita. 

A solução? Blusas de lã de todos os tipos: casacos compridos, aquelas blusas breguinhas de Natal, e um pouquinho de suor quando eu esquecer de botar algo mais fresquinho por baixo (porque nem ta tão frio assim). Chegar no nível maximo de aconchego pra esquentar o coração (e a bunda) é sem dúvida nenhuma, a melhor maneira de comemorar o chegada deste inverno bobo do hemisfério norte.

Então partiu ficar cheio de coceira com blusa de lã comigo? Vem, é tão gostooooso...
