Lace has always been one my least favorite fabrics. For some reason, I’ve always find it less romantic and more granny. I have avoided wearing it, specially when it came back as a heavy trend summer 2012, but sometimes we find a piece that makes us fall in love so much that we change our minds.

This gorgeous blue lace dress from Style CTZN in Wynwood (only $60) it’s delicate, feminine and form-fitting. Since its Cadet Blue, I decided to make a contrast with a PrettyODD Boutique $20 coral necklace with stones in the shape of petals. What better way to complement the art deco flower designs on the lace than petals?

Marvelous Mode: A Make-A-Wish Cinderella Story

Hello My Friends!
Haz Click Para Español!

I had the pleasure and honor of attending the Make-A-Wish Ball benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of South Florida. The theme was Bollywood, and as expected, the decor and ambience were a true reflection of beautiful India. The Make-A-Wish Foundation it’s a cause very close to my heart. I firmly believe that giving children the opportunity to smile and fulfill a dream its one of the most selfless things a person can do. Seeing a sick child battling a deadly disease, with a smile on their face and their spirit uplifted, it’s simply priceless. As a mom myself, I can only imagine and be compassionated, about fellow parents hurt when having to see their child go through medical treatments and painful recoveries.

I can only dream about been lucky enough to Make a child’s Wish one day! There are so many ways to get involved with this organization and helping children, and their families, receive much deserved good news! For all my readers, and friends not living in SoFla, there are other Make-A-Wish chapters which you can reach out to and volunteer your time for. It’s as easy as to promote awareness about this wonderful cause with a tweet, Facebook status, sharing stories, referring children to the org and even sharing this post!

Hola Mis Amigos!!

Tuve el honor y placer de atender la gala a beneficio de la Fundación Make-A-Wish del Sur de la Florida (Concede-Un-Sueño). El tema del evento fué Bollywood y la decoración y ambiente fue una reflección de la belleza de India. La Fundación Make-A-Wish apoya una causa muy cercana a mi corazón y en la cual creo firmemente. El poder darle a un niño la posibilidad de sonreír y alcanzar un sueño es una de las cosas más desapegadas que alguién puede hacer. Ver un pequeño luchar contra una enfermedad peligrosa y sin embargo mantener una sonrisa y su espíritu elevado, son cosas que no tienen precio. Como mamá simplemente me puedo imaginar, y ser compasiva, acerca del dolor por el que pasan los padres de un niño que tiene que pasar por tratamientos médicos y dolorosas recuperaciones.

Solo puedo soñar en tener el placer de conceder un sueño a un pequeño algun día! Hay muchísimas maneras de involucrarse con esta fabulosa organizaciôn, y así poder ayudar a estos niños y sus familias a recibir muy merecidas buenas noticias. Para mis lectores y amigos que no se encuentran en el Sur de la Florida, Make-A-Wish tiene sedes en otros lugares a los que pueden contactar para donar su tiempo. Es muy fácil promover esta causa y atraer atención sobre ella: Un simple tweet, estatus en Facebook, compartir los enlaces o este articulo, o referir pequeños a la organización, pueden hacer una diferencia!

Hello My Friends!!

Please don’t feel like your Captain Frugalista has left the boat!! I have been a bit absent, but only due to the fact that my weekend consisted of running too many errands, attending one event after another, doing some charitable work, and getting all ready for the most exciting week of all: Fashion’s Night Out on 9/6 and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York!! :)


Now, yours truly was scheduled to attend NY starting 9/5, but since my lil’ ones have been a bit sick, I haven’t had the nerves to leave them like that!! Sometimes is hard to do the right thing but it has to be done anyways! Maybe I will get the courage to go towards the end of the week! :)

As part of my T3 Haute Series, I will give you the insights about my hair care!! Is not a secret that I love Princess Ariel and her long red hair. Many of you don’t know this, but I’m naturally Goldilocks blonde; however, since I dyed my hair cherry red 6 yrs ago, I have NEVER changed my hair color again. I have decided to share some tips and some of my own tricks! I know some of you have waited for this, but just remember I’m not a professional but only a lover of hair care! :) Continue reading
