This week we’re stoked to bring you interviews with five social media stars who just so happen to also be the stars of our BP. summer trend guide, the insta-cool life. We invited each one to nab her favorite BP. summer goodies, then style them with her own personal twist—with great results.
Today’s featured fave is Luanna Perez-Garreaud, better known to her fans as @luanna90 (Instagram) or Lua P for those who follow her blog, Le Happy. This edgy blogger originally hails from Lima, Peru(!), but moved to NYC a few years back to study fashion design. We were excited to see which of our BP. Summer Essentials she’d pick and how she’d style them, and she didn’t disappoint!
How would you describe your style?
It’s an ever-changing, eclectic mix. Most of my inspiration comes from music, so I will always lean towards ’90s grunge style, with a rock and gothic vibe.
What’s your trick for taking great Instagram photos?
I just try to be as natural as possible. Whenever I see something beautiful I quickly snap a photo and save it for later. Then I take a little time to work out on which filter to use or alter it a bit by adding brightness, sharpness or contrast.
Where would you wear this outfit?
I would wear it anywhere on a warm spring day.
What are your tips for styling this outfit?
I simply styled the top with black bottoms to add more contrast and make the colors pop. Since the top is already eye-catcher, I tried to keep the rest of the outfit simple.
Please share one surprising fact about yourself.
When I was a little kid I wanted to be a veterinarian!
