COMFTY ELEGANCE

CE
Hi Dears!

I have missed you!
Today I wanted to shared something inspired in this summer days of shopping and fun, I don't know about you...but I truly take my hat off for the gals that can go out and about, all around the mall wearing heels, I truly salute you if you are one! I wish I could because I can see how they come very handy when trying on some pieces that need that extra oomph...but I've made peace with the fact that I just can't go shopping in heels :) nevertheless, I do still want look put-together and elegant during my shopping adventures.

Here's a great maxi skirt with great visual impact that also offers comfort in the dressing room! all of this pieces are so easy, yet they all individually have something unique to them...the crossed & braided leather of the sandals, the stitching on this amazing Tory Burch crossbody, the saturated cobalt hue of the maxi, the open shoulder of an otherwise simple top...and the accessories oh! you know I'm a fool for accessories! ;)

Make up wise? I would love to see this with a strong lip to pump up the elegance and I would love a beachy undone wavy look or a great french braid! ♥

Well that is my idea of a comfty-elegant combo, hope you like it and wish you a great summer of shopping and fun!!

Thank You All for stopping by!

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!

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! ;)

Feeling Gooood!!

Feeling Gooood!!


Hey Dears!

Feeling Good? I can imagine that I am not the only one that once in a while haves one of those mornings, those terrible mornings where you wake up, look at the mirror and say: "Oh My Gosh I look like I got into a fight with Pacquiao!!!" hahaha. Your skin is not having the best morning, your hair just won't cooperate, you try all the things in your closet, even your favorite outfits for god's sake! and still you don't feel your best....:( What I do in those days? I dress all in BLACK! :) 

Yeap, since I was a little girl I loved black, and let's stop for a minute and think that I grew up in a time where black was not a common color for kids to wear, not at all, there was no animal print for children, or anything like it, so imagine my mother's face when I was 6 and told her I wanted all my hair bows to go to school to be BLACK!!! She thought she had Rosemarie's Baby or something! hahaha. Even a girl in my class actually asked me if I was in mourning and since I didn't knew what that word meant I replied with an insult! haha(if you're out there...sorry girl!). In my adolescence I was not gothic at all or wear black lipstick...is just, I enjoyed beautiful black clothes and accesories, they made me feel good!!! :D

Nowadays, whenever I'm having one of those mornings I dress with my favorite black garments, wear my best black sunnies, killer black shoes and just minimal jewelry and voila!!!! I feel better...actually...I FEEL GOOOOOOD!!!

The inspirational outfit today might seem a l-i-t-t-l-e OliviaNewtownJohn-ish :D but I just love feminine pieces mixed with rocker ones, so leather pants with lace peplum! Hello!!!♥♥♥

Well, I just shared one corky thing about me and I will invite you to try it on one of those days, who knows maybe it works for you too ;) the only cardinal rule here is: THEY ALL HAVE TO BE FABULOUS PIECES!!! Black yoga pants, and shapeless t-shirts DON'T count!

Thanks for stopping by...means the world :)

THE REPURPOSE

THE REPURPOSE :)

So here is my idea for repurposing...Ok, so we all agree this is not meant for a Breakfast Date at IHOP! Somehow, I don't think that the Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity would be appropiate :D...This outfit is for that kind of beautiful morning that you are meeting with this man that is starting to reaaally get under your skin (in that great romantic almost high schooley way !! :)) and decides taking you to THE "trendy neighborhood" to have more of a european breakfast followed by a stroll around the vintage shops and picking up some flowers perhaps...Don't we all want to look just unforgettable for that kind of morning? :)

Let me know if you like the repurpose of our Mary Katrantzou.

Thanks for stopping by!

SATURDAY NIGHT FUNCTION

SATURDAY NIGHT FUNCTION


It's true that sometimes we have that particular event where we wonder "How formal is this affair really?" On this occasions a unique dress like this Mary Katrantzou is a perfect choice because the print makes it look super unique but still fresh and approachable, I think in this dress you would be THAT girl that everyone wants to talk to :)

I am a big fan of buying things that you can wear 100 times for different purposes, different seasons and with a different feel so all of the accessories on this inspiration I feel can be in your weardrobe forever and you will always find a different use for them, they are timeless.

Now about the dress? We will find a repurpose...Stay tuned ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

INCOMPARABLE

INCOMPARABLE


Today I wanted to share with you a little piece of me. Obvious to say being involved in fashion I have many icons and muses that serve as inspiration, but the first woman that as a little girl struck me with her stunning presence was Sophia Loren. I found her unique beauty, personality and sex-appeal very commanding, it’s like you couldn’t stop looking at her! so I stared at her pictures for hours on my mother’s magazines (there was no Google then). She had this air of confidence that till this day I have never seen…Being completely enchanted by her I got to learn about her humble upbringing and got to love her even more when I found out that as a little girl she was so thin they called her "Stuzzicadenti" which means “Toothpick”, something that I could relate with and the first time I felt like someone knew how I felt :D I remember thinking “Sophia is cool and so if Sophia was a toothpick as me then I am cool!!” …Oh! self acceptance :)
Based on Sophia’s elegance, femininity and style I put this two ensembles together that are curve hugging, figure flattering and very Italian :) completed with her later-in-life signature cat-eye glasses!

So, who is your icon?

Thanks for stopping by!
