Playing with Neutrals at the TRESemmé MBFW Lounge

Hello My Friends,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

One of the best parts of attending a week-long event such as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week its been able to visit the different beauty and technology lounges inside the Lincoln Center. TRESemmé gave away products from their Keratin Smooth and Platinum Strength collection and had a fun photo-booth with super cute props. However, the most special part was that they invited my fave celebrity stylist Marco Peña, Latin ambassador of TRESemmé, so he could create gorgeous looks at the Jenny Packman, Tracy Reese and Nanette Lepore runway shows!

Spotted & Snapped at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Hello Frugalistas!!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!


It has been an incredible week and I can’t wait to share all the amazing trends, runway shots, interviews, and of course, outfits! The street-style that I saw was unbelievable. From bold colors to ridiculously high heels, the trend-setters took Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York by storm (literally) and battled out the awful Nemo blizzard in style! I could not stay behind, and although I must admit the weather ruined some of my choice of footwear, I had a great time enjoying the shows and the ambience. Continue reading

Tailored Threads: Amp Up A Classic Combo!

Hello Fashion Fans,
Haz Click Para Espanol

If there is one classic “All-American” girl combo is tees and jeans. There are many reasons why this combination is so beloved among frugalistas. They are staple pieces, regardless if used separately or together, that can be used for day or night. A plain t-shirt can serve as focus piece during hot weather or as a layer during colder times. They come in a variety of colors, fabrics and shapes (V-neck/ boat style/ high-neck) that complement everyone’s body type, style and comfort level.

Jeans, on the other side, are simply a must-have on EVERY wardrobe. It doesn’t matter if you like pieces that are romantic, edgy, contemporary, vintage or glam, jeans will take you anywhere and through any scenario. The key its to pick the right rinse for the occasion. Lighter denim washes are perfect for day time, darker denim rinse works always, whereas leather coated jeans are perfect for night-time. But wait! where do pastels and bold colors fit in here? Well, let me tell you: ANYTIME! The amazing thing about jeans with designs, patterns (floral/ brocade/ ikat) and in vibrant hues, it’s that they can easily be taken day-to-night!

This time I’m showing you how to amp up the boring jeans & tee combo by using key pieces that will take you from the supermarket to the bar! All you need are the right accessories to turn this 2 piece outfit into 4 different ones!
 * Black tee in V-neck because it’s the most flattering shape for every body type.
* Medium to Dark rinse skinny jeans. These are not your cigarette, super slim fit jeans, but rather the ones that leave room to breath!

1st Look:
Relax-Errands: I need to pick up the dry cleaners, go to the supermarket, get the kids from school, drop off meds for a sick relative, etc.
* Basics
 * Add a single layer necklace which makes the tee look a bit more polished.
* Add a leopard thing belt, because how can we live without a bit of animal print on our outfits, and tuck in the tee on the front.
* Add a men’s inspired watch to give some toughness, and few bracelets or rings.
* the weather call for riding boots, but during warmer climate, a pair of flats or sandals will do fine!
* Perfect handbag: a tote or carryall!

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!
