Electric Blogarella Fella: David Jon Acosta

Meet David Jon Acosta, aka Our Prince of Peace.

I’m not sure how David Jon Acosta happened into my life, but I will say it hasn’t been the same since. Love this kid. And talk about talented. He has two lines going at the same time: turbands hair accessories by Gold Saturn and funky fresh clothing from Our Prince of Peace. When it comes to his own style, he has a knack for putting casual-chic together with European and high-end designers. What else would you expect from a dynamo who’s been featured in Nylon and is a regular on Refinery29? But enough about what I think about this Miami superstar designer. See what my first-ever Electric Blogarella Fella has to say for himself.

Name: David Jon Acosta

Claim to Fame: Designer of Our Prince Of Peace and Gold Saturn.

Wearing: I’m wearing a short sleeve henley by J.C. Rags, jeans by ASOS and Dr. Martens boots.

Sum up your style: I think its part downtown, part uptown, with a dash of ’70s—shaken not stirred.

Most treasured item in your closet: My Alexander McQueen scarf. It goes with everything, and my best friends got it for me for my birthday, so every time I wear it I think of them.

Secret shopping go-to spot: I shop online a lot. Some of my favorite sites are Aloha Rag, OAKNYC and, of course, ASOS.

Beauty tip: If you are a male and don’t want to look like your wearing makeup, but still want coverage, go for a tinted moisturizer. My favorite is the Balm Shelter by The Balm, it gives you a nice light cover up and natural glow.

When you were a kid you wanted to be: On Broadway, I still do.

Never leave home without your: David Yurman Dinosaur Bone Ring.

At the top of your fashion wish list is: I’ve been yearning for a Louis Vuitton Keepall, its a travel essential. Gosh, I hope my boyfriend reads this.

Currently addicted to: Chick-fil-A, what else is new?

Last song you listened to: The Pretty Reckless, “Hit Me Like a Man.”
