Style Encounter: Joana Davila

Joanna embodies that understated solar Miami style – nonchalant, unconventional, a mix of sexy and gamine, unique yet reassuring. In other words, if she walks into a coffee bar, she is your girl! You want her to come and sit next to you and talk about a movie, a trip, or a pair of shoes, and be best friends at first sight.
