New York has been below zero temperatures for the past 2 weeks. Needless to say, New York Fashion Week was anything, but a breeze. After noticing -read stalking because of FOND, how cold it really was, I couldn’t help but feel a little glad I saw it from my 70 degree weather! This year, I had too may family commitments that would not allow me to travel on those dates, so I decided to share this outfit I didn’t post from last year where I layered like a pro! I wore a silk long sleeve shirt under a crop top – yes your read that right -, a skirt with wool lined leggings, a faux-fur Eskimo parka, and high-knee leather boots. The trick is to go for easy-going fabrics that will warm you up without making you look bulky, and to go for a color scheme that complements each other.

What made me sad, besides not spending my 30th bday with my best friends, was that I was not going to be able to close my MBFW chapter in a  proper way. As you might know already, New York Fashion Week will no longer be sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, or be held at the Lincoln Center. I have nothing, but fond memories, from the event formerly known as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I met people who I totally adore, was able to interview amazing designers, see the most fabulous fashion shows, and learn so much more about this industry that I feel proud to be part of.

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.
