Outfit of the Day - COMPLEJO Exhibit edition

I went to the COMPLEJO opening the other night with my sister and  cousin.  COMPLEJO by  Tony Peralta explores complexes people of color have regarding hair texture, skin color and etc. It was inspired by the recent controversy sourounding Sammy Sosa , the Dominican former Major League Baseball star who used chemical products to lighten his skin and straighten his naturally curly hair. If you did not know already Tony is also the designer behind The Peralta Project. Yeah, the mastermind behind the famous "Defend Uptown" t-shirts and tanks everyone has been wearing in The Heights. You can now check out the exhibit at the NoMAA Gallery at 178 Bennett Avenue @189th street (3rd floor). 

Top: Necessary clothing (soho NY)
Shorts: H&M
Endless Noise NYC

Doña con rolos (my favorite piece ) 

Real women have curves (this piece is awesome, Tony really took his time gathering inspiration for this one, I took my time taking it all in )
