Between the Sheets: Natalie Off Duty




Photo by: Dylana Suarez

Natalie Lim Suarez made a career out of her many talents. A model/musician/blogger, to name a few, Natalie designed her blog, Natalie Off Duty to document her life in the fashion world. Coming from a family tree representing her diverse genealogy, Natalie is ½ Chinese, ¼ Spanish, ¼ Mexican. Natalie’s blog invites us into her world of photo shoots, fashion shows, trend reports, and travels around the world to the most glamorous locales. When she’s not jet-setting to places like Paris or LA, she can be found getting cozy in her luminously minimalist-meets-shabby chic apartment. We met up with her in Brooklyn to get a glimpse into her daily routines, and how she styles her apartment.
