For the past month I have traveled non-stop. From New York to Paris, I have been incredibly blessed to be able to enjoy a fashion filled life, and learn more about this complex world! To have the opportunity to experience the intricacies of Fashion Week, its like giving a sugar covered cotton candy cake pop to a little girl (boys aren’t that crazy about sweets) all wrapped up in a beautiful glittery pink bow! Now that the sugar high is gone, I’m experiencing major withdrawals, and realizing catching up its hard to do when there is so much to tell and so little time to do so.
Part of becoming more adventurous and taking more risks with my fashion choices has been to open up to mixing bright colors. Just like with everything in life, we must allow ourselves to evolve and change, and gain a fresher perspective on our lives. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to give ourselves the opportunity to try new things without undervaluing what we already have.
I had the privilege to host the Teen Vogue Magazine Back-To-School Saturday event at Macys Dadeland Mall in Miami. Having the opportunity to work with such fab glossy and the biggest retailer in the U.S, was definitely a great experience. The soiree consisted of a cool dance performance by InMotion Miami, a Fall fashion show divided in 4 with different looks, and beauty treats from Smashbox, Shiseido and Clinique. NailBar Midtown did my nails pink and purple with an Aztec/tribal design, and the HF emblazoned in the middle!
One of the hottest trends of 2013 has been the Lucite heels. We have seen them from the runway to the street, and it shows no sign of stopping. No longer its this trend only for the strip club, yes! I said it!. Now, even the ladies who lunch are strotting down the country club wearing Stella McCartney Lucite wedges or Prada Lucite peep-toe heels.
The addition of this modern and futuristic material has given designers the opportunity to play with shapes, colors, effects like ombre, and even filling. Yes!, Some of them come filled with flowers, crystals and even barbie heads! Yes!, I’ve seen those too! I find it fun, funky and even frugal! They add a cool touch and an edgy vibe to any outfit.

Summer gives us the opportunity to bring out the colorful patterns and prints. I love this dress from Marshalls because its soft and feminine, the color combo its bold yet chic, and the shape its flattering. I added red accessories for the day to make it fun and then Black & Gold at night, from my fave frugal store Accessory Fanatic, to make it more glam. Meeting Giovanni Frasson, fashion editor of Vogue Brazil, was one of the highlights of my week. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the market, the inspiration behind the Latin fashion, and how to show the Brazilian flavor to the world through fashion.
