Paris has always been one of favorite places to visit. The architecture, art, scenery, and fashion, have lured me in since very young. Walking the city makes you feel as if you were going back in time, and everything around it recalls a specific moment in history, and makes you feel welcomed to become part of it. As you can tell, I am a total history buff. I believe that knowing where we come from, helps us see where we are going, and make better choices about our future. There is a saying that goes: “those who don’t know their story, are sentenced to repeat it”, and I for one, wouldn’t like to walk someone else’s path.

At times we think we aren’t supposed to do something, or be somewhere, but I believe we are always meant to. I have learned that only by jumping, aka taking chances, and having faith that God or the Universe will be there to catch us, it’s that we are able to surpass our expectations for a happy and successful life.

My 1st stop during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014 was the Ford Beauty Suite presented by Ford Models and Fake Bake. Hosted at the exclusive Soho Beach House in Miami, I had a full day of nails, hair, amazing makeup by Ethian Hugo, and tons of fantastic goodies to take home with me! I chose this fabulous dress from PrettyODD Boutique because its fresh, delicate, feminine and ultra-chic. The trendy color-block pattern makes it the perfect choice for the summery day and the vintage gold belt makes it an easy transition to night outfit.

Fashion Trends: Rosettes in Winter

Hello Frugalistas!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

Everyone has a personal style. A unique way of showing their perspective on fashion, colors, prints and shapes. For me, it’s all about been eclectic and mixing uber-feminine pieces with edgy accessories. I love creating the contrast between classic silhouettes and bolder styles, giving to any design a fresher upgrade in a second! Sometimes we play it safe with neutral colors and pops of vibrant ones, and sometimes we go all out there combining textures and prints.

Designer Spotlight: Thale Blanc by Deborah Sawaf

Hello Haute Fashionistas!,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

The current style market has become over saturated with designers and labels. Even though the mass production of on-trend pieces has made fashion accessible to everyone, it has also taken the uniqueness factor out of the equation. The access to light-speed technology has made consumers more aggressive about the rapid acquisition of their desired goods, making craftiness take a back seat over shipping deadlines. That its one of the reasons why I felt so delighted and impressed when I walked into the Thale Blanc preview at the Trump International in New York. The view was breathtaking and it complemented perfectly the beautiful designs Deborah Sawaf, creator of Thale Blanc, had laid out across the suite.

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!
