I caught up with Nadiya Suwardi, an associate at Prada, while shopping in Hayes Valley. Nadiya exudes this very cool, rock 'n' roll confidence, but has a killer sweetheart smile to balance the toughness. The contrasts -- two-toned hair, delicate yet badass tattoos, the floral-on-leopard prints, and how the flirty hemline of her dress falls so nicely into a chunky heel -- are what make this look really great.
Beautiful skin. Awesome tattoo.
I love how the back of her dress matches the gate.
A great mix of modern jewelry.
You can see it better in the first photo, but the heel is partially covered with leather, giving this chunky pair some added flair.
