Dovima

Dovima Dovima-1 Dovima-2

Dovima-4 Dovima-5 Dovima-6

Last weekend while dining at the Turkish restaurant, Cazbar, in Baltimore, a belly dancer came out and began dancing through the isles. I seized the opportunity to capture some shots as she twirled and pranced throughout the lounge. I named this album “Dovima” because this dancer reminded me of the grace and elegance portrayed in the famous photo, “Dovima With the Elephants,” taken by Richard Avedon.

Have A Great Weekend,

Socks and Boots..O My!

Boots and Socks

Baby, It’s Cold Outside,

Well not really yet, but it will be soon. One fall fashion statement that I love is the boot paired with the socks. And not your typical socks but the long ones that show. I think it add a little bit of something to your look. You can accessorize with more than just your footwear. It is a practical and fashionable statement. I enjoy it because you can transform a summer outfit with shorts into a fall/winter outfit with a pair of stockings, socks, and boots. What’s not to love? Also if you are not blessed with thick calves the socks add some extra traction to keep the boots that you love up. Try them out and let me know what you think!

Getting Paleo with Peruvian Chicken

peruvian chicken

Goodmorning!

After work yesterday I finished one of my rotations for my residency and wanted to treat myself, a kind of mental pat on the back. I was like, ahh! Paleo! How can I possibly find something to eat outside? Surprisingly, there are various paleo friendly restaurants or if you ask they can “paleofy” your meal. I happened to remember this amazing Peruvian chicken that my mom brought home from work a while back and I was like yum, meat is paleo! Then I got to this amazing place in College Park, MD called Sardi’s Pollo a la Brasa. They serve DELICIOUS Peruvian chicken, slow roasted on a spit right in front of you. The spices on the chicken are out of this world.  Somehow the chicken is nice and moist as well. They also have a nice selection of sides. My favorite paleo selections are the yuca fries and the fried plantain. Oh my goodness, yuca fries are scrumptious little golden treats. They are made from the cassava plant and if you have never tried one, try it! It will change your world. And I think the fried plantain speaks for itself. They are perfectly ripe, soft, sweet, and amazing. Definitely a paleo friendly dinner for me!

Love,

First the Maxi Skirt..Now the Maxi Pants. I Love.

Maxi Pants

Hey Fashionistas,

     I am sure many of you are already aware of the maxi pants trend that is currently sweeping the nation. It is absolutely fabulous and practical for the fall weather. I’d say grab your pair now before the snow begins to fall. Like the maxi skirt the maxi pants add length to your frame. They are also tummy forgiving with wider belt styles or vertical stripes. I am personally a fan of boho, loose and free styles. This can be boho to perfection or classy enough for a high power dinner. Paired with a high set of heels, ladies you are run way ready. For street wear pair it with a cross over chain linked purse. For a night out on the town pair it with a clutch. These pants can also be paired with crop tops and cardigans. Embrace this style while it is still on the radar!

 

Much Love Always,

LoeilMD

Here is a photo of a train approaching the platform at the Howard metro stop in D.C. Using slow shutter speeds and photoshop, I was able to create this intriguing distorted look of something we would never imagine in such a manner. Hope you all like it!

 

Have a Lovely Weekend,
