VEGAS BABY!

Vegas



VEGAS 3




VEGAS 2


VEGAS 4

 

 

Hello Dears,

I have a Vegas trip on the corner (yeeey) and wanted to share with you the process on how I normally pack ;)
When I travel with people, very often they comment on how light I pack, specially being a girl and a fashion lover. What I do, is NOT pack any randoms, I specifically pack complete outfits for specific moments of the trip and really imagine each of the days to be realistic about how much time am I going to have to change outfits. Back in the day, I use to suffer from what I call the “vedette syndrome” (ha-ha I know some of you can relate to this) thinking that I was going to have an outfit for breakfast and like a showgirl I was going to change outfits for each opportunity or occasion, a dinner , and outing, pool, bar...you name it, I brought it!…Nowadays, I’ve become more practical and wiser and I built multifunctional outfits that can perfectly work on different occasions and only plan changing clothes for nights out or an event…and even then I take just one pair of pumps and a clutch that work with all my night outfits ;)

Here I share a few examples on how just 3 pairs of shoes an a couple of garments can perfectly work for a weekend getaway :) Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by...and wish me luck!!! ;)

TRENDS: Rompers & Jumpsuits



Romper

Jumpsuit


Hello Dears,

As you might notice this two babies are back! Rompers & Jumpsuits and I couldn't be happier :) When putting an outfit together they are just an easy and comfortable choice, and I don't know what it is about them, maybe the combination of masculine and feminine, but they just make me feel sexy whenever I wear them...The only down side to them is honestly... the visits to the ladies room! ;) (I know you get me), nonetheless I'm very willing to pay the price because I just can get enough of them! ♥

As you can see I'm showing here some examples on how they are R&J for any occasion, day to night, casual to formal...but there are a few considerations to make when buying yours: 

FIT: It is all about the fit! Consider that, since this garments are made on one piece they are probably not going to fit like a glove because there are so many angles to consider and it's not as easy as fitting in a blouse, in this garment you are trying to accommodate ALL the angles of your body at once! :) So please be patient and don't discard the tailoring option if you find one that you just have to have! :D

PRINT: When choosing a printed one, pay attention to the loudness of the print! One that its to busy or big and you might go from fabulous to clown-land haha.Whit one-pieces, in terms of print is better be safe than sorry.

LENGTH: Particularly when buying online, consider your height and check the specification of the garments very carefully. I know we welcome the idea of doing a little tailoring here and there but there are things that are just not worth the trouble and might end ruining the piece, and one of the height related issues are inseams, so keep this in mind and avoid surprises by measuring your self first ;)

Ok my Dears, I hope you enjoy this summery jewel of a trend and thanks so much for your visit! ;)

WORLD CUP: Fan or Supporter?


MEXICO

USA

BRASIL

Hi Dears!

As you know the Soccer World Cup is being celebrated and this post its answering to a request you had about what to wear to support your teams. I think as girls we find ourselves in one of this two scenarios that affect our fashion choices:

1. We are proud and devoted fans and we even have the official shirts to prove it :) we are definitely following all the games and our working schedule alouds for us to join our friends at a local sports bar or house get-together to cheer, scream and drink on the name of our team!!

2. We hate soccer (or all sports for that matter) and wouldn't be caught dead in a soccer jersey!! (augh) BUT still feel kind of patriotic and want to at least show a little of that pride in a more sophisticated manner ;)

Well, I hope you like the options I have put together for you and good luck sporting your chic looks :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Liliana.  

 P.S. For the request-Bravo Meg!

OBSESSIONS! I am loosing it!



DYLANLEX

Happy Sunday Dears,

My latest obsession is DYLANLEX, being totally honest with you everytine I see a piece, I literally have a physical reaction, I swear I breath faster! I love ALL of their creations, they have what I call a Classic Forward factor, they remind you of something a warrior in the begining of centuries could've wore but at the same time is edgy,modern and loud...Is yesterday and tomorrow if you know what I mean! 

Swarovski Crystal and antiqued metals are used in each of their masterpieces, so you can imagine that they can come up quite pricey, but I think that once you'd have your hands on one of this you would truly wear it forever! Now, while we look for some +800USD spare change in our purses hahaha :D I found alternatives from ZARA and BAUBLEBAR that at least I found very calming in the mean time!

I hope you love them as much as I do and now we can be obsessed together :)

Thanks for stopping by ;)

Little Wonder Dress

Hi Dears,

Everyone that knows me knows that I looove looove looove dresses, I am pretty sure at least half of my wardrobe are dresses and maybe a little more than that. I just find dresses such an ideal and practical garment, you can play them up or down with accessories and they make the outfit building process so easy, not too mention they are comfty to wear all day...

Once in while comes a dress that achieves both visual interest and versatility, I found this amazing printed little dress that its already coming my way ;D and I wanted to share with you how I am already envisioning myself in it!!

If you want to get it don't hesitate and leave me a comment :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Mommy, Mom, Mother

Mommy



Mom


Mother



Happy Mother's Day my Dears!!

I was inspired by this idea of how a woman develops in style as her role evolves as well...When she has toddlers the need to be comfortable to run after the little ones is essential and its that time when all she hears all day is Mommy Mommy Mommy! Ha-ha :D I know many of my friends are in that phase right now...Then when the kids become more independent she recovers some freedom and goes back to loving the heels a little more often again, that is the Mom phase :) (also our gifts for Mother's Day have to evolve of course!)... And then when we are adults is when we call her MOTHER and also luckily is when we can afford to give her gifts like that special trip she never took when she was taking care of us ♥

So, to all the Mommys, Moms, and Mothers, God bless you for quitting your heels for us for a while, for forgiving our chocolate stains in your ivory cashmere sweater, and for more than often choosing to buy rollers skates for us instead of that cute bag for yourselves! ♥♥♥

HAPPY DAY!!!

Love

Liliana.

TRENDS: Artsy Abstract Prints

Abstract



Hi Dears,

This is a summer trend that I really dig!! :) I’ve always been a prints lover and this trend of mixing artsy and abstracts motifs is just making me so happy. Some may think its too loud and wouldn’t dare to try it so that is why I put together some options depending on the loudness of the print :

LEVEL 1: The pants have a low impact print, black and white so you can’t go wrong and really a safe option if you are on the shy side, I pair it with accessories that have basic lines and since its not showing leg or cleavage this is the most conservative of the three.

LEVEL 2: On top of the black and white, we invited blue into the mix for a medium loudness print, that looks really cool with the edgy shorts and sandals and added black and white sunnies.

LEVEL 3: Ok, this is the “out there” four color combo print and I love love love it, with the sky high heels in orangey-red and black and the mint and black clutch, this is a showstopper outfit no doubt about it :)

As a bonus and because nothing can get more artsy than nails, I added the always great Butter London shades that go perfect with the inspiration :)

So, which one you like the most?

As always thank you for stopping by!

Liliana.
