Passion fuels the fashion and photography adventures of blogger and Instagram influencer Camila Cediel. A full-time product photographer by day, Cediel also views her career as her life’s work. Her ultimate goal is to travel the world and move into high fashion photography while hosting art exhibits across the globe.
As Cediel moves to the next level on her journey to the career of her dreams, she chronicles all of her adventures at wishxbone.com and on Instagram @wishxbone. From fun travel fashion to amazing everyday adventures in thrifty finds, Cediel’s style is rocker chic some days, nailing Lady Gaga-esque vibes with an added dose of cute and colorful. Other days, Camila embraces all the cozy or a demure monochromatic look. This chameleon-like approach to fashion is appealing and a great way to mix and match pieces to avoid a style rut. If you decide you want to emulate Camila’s style, prepare to shop sales and hit the resale stores to locate unique, vintage wares. Prepare to layer and pair alternate textures to elevate basic ensembles to photo ready outfits.
Dress for the location
Know your audience is a basic principle of communications, and dressing for where you are is a great way to fit in and have fun, particularly when traveling. On a year launching trip to Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Camila embraced her inner lady mouse for a day in the park.
A red polka dot mini dress provided a comfortable splash of vacation color, a great length for comfortable meandering down park trails and a bit of costume. Coupled with black hosiery, black sunglasses and an on-trend black backpack with red accents, the ensemble nailed sexy Minnie Mouse chic.
Keep it cozy casual for a weekend walk
Need to stay warm on a cold day or in a chilly office environment? Consider skipping a jacket or traditional blazer. Instead, opt for an oversized, chunky knit sweater perfect for layering when the need arises and leaving behind when the temperature rises.
In March, Camila paired a camel colored version over a pair of snug black leggings and a colorful top. A pair of wedge boots with prominent strings offered a bit of edge with a luxurious patent-like sheen. The boots take an otherwise simple, cozy outfit to the next level instantly.
Party like its 1999
For New Year’s Eve, Camila channeled debut album Jennifer Lopez with a classy cool ensemble capable of capturing all the sheen of a disco ball or light show. A pleated, metallic skirt plays with texture while a simple black tank lets the skirt do all of the talking. A chunky belt with large metal buckles topped off the ensemble by matching the sheen of the skirt while capturing the hue of the tank. For the less bold, trade in metallics for shiny pastels or muted fabrics in metallic colors.
Camila’s love of photography and fashion is evident throughout her Instagram and website. Bold outfit choices are accented by high-quality images with first-class staging. While a Chicago girl and U.S. citizen now, Camila is a Colombia native who previously lived in Dubai and Toronto. With a high dose of optimism and plenty of drive, the future for this fashionista and photographer is bright. As her career grows, expect to see Camila’s work In fashion spreads worldwide.
