OUTFIT BUILDER

OB




Hola Dears!

Have you ever bought something that goes with NOTHING in your wardrobe but you just had to have it? Well, that was my mother when I was growing up, needless to say the woman has two and a half closets!! Ha-ha. I remember her saying:"Oh I just love this bracelet"(that she had nothing to pair it with)then she HAD to get the shoes, the bag, the dress and everything else to make it work....I think it was just a cleaver way to justify her shopping addiction, but anyway, on today's outfit that its exactly what happened to me with this amazing Baublebar earrings, they are the star of the ensemble and even though they are sold out(sorry ladies!) I have some wonderful and VERY affordable options below that are equally amazing!!!!!

PS. I am also obsessed with the bag!!!!

Thanks for your visit ;)

ESSENTIALS: Summer White Dress Perfection

White Dress Perfection

Hey Dears!

I think we all have those non-stop days that make us nervous, because we know we will be moving from appointment to appointment throughout the day and we're not going to have that much time to change. Today's essential is THE perfect option, stay in the same dress and just change the accessories and voila!

A White Dress like this just HAS to be in your closet, its a maxidress so it has some sophistication implicit to it, I love the fit and V-neck, its very flattering to almost all body types + white is a universally flattering color :)

When looking for this essential on your next shopping trip, the main thing you have to check for is a quality fabric! The secret to a great looking white dress is the softness of the material, therefore a stiff fabric or one that easily wrinkles will not be the best investment, you either can go for a great jersey that has some good weight to it or silk, any of this two would be the safe way to go.

Below you can find the exact same dress I use for inspiration and two other options in different price ranges:

$$$$ NORMA KAMALI

$$$ Zappos
 
$$ Nordstrom

Enjoy shopping and thanks for stopping by!!

EFFORTLESS




F.O




Hello Dears!

I know we all have those days where you really wake up not in the mood to glam it up, not in the mood to be supercolorful but you still have to look polish and put together because you have that bussiness lunch you just can't cancel or that meeting with a friend in a very social spot where you know you're gonna bump into acquantances and people in your circle that are part of your professional life and you must pay a little effort without the effort haha...In those cases the answer is NEUTRALS!! Oh yes !!

Put them together and just pair with a detail of neutrals that pop like this Michael Kors Clutch that is really what pulls everything together!  You can get it HERE !

I think this is sexy, feminine and definitely demure enough to say: "That girl didn't try too hard but darn it she looks goooood!!!! :D

I hope you recreate this soon in one of those mornings...

Thanks for stopping by!

LAZY-CHIC

LCHIC



Hey Dears!

So, its Saturday Morning, you have to take out your pet and you don't want to go out on the streets looking like a public enemy for the eyes ha-ha but you don't want to spend more than 10 minutes getting ready...This is what I call Lazy-Chic, this option alouds you to just "slide" into the outfit, if you don't want to do your hair you can just disguise it under this really cool hat and the touch of chicness really is all about the accessories, starting with this Tory Burch Crossbody Wallet (available  HERE) which is a super practical option to carry your credit cards in case you need to do some grocery shopping on your way back and also of course to have your doggie bags handy ;)

The sunnies I cannot even begin to tell you how serious of crush I have!!! This are Tierry Lasry and the model is called Orgasmy :D I mean this people really know what they are talking about!! If you are interested in them you can get them HERE

Well, that's all for today but thanks as always for taking the time and stopping by!

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!
