Hello Fashionistas,
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week its one of the most anticipated fashion events in the world. Paris, Milan, London and New York, are among the elite locations chosen to showcase the exclusive designs from the most recognized and prestige Fashion Houses.


From Dior, Chanel, Prada, Versace, Carolina Herrera to Valentino, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta, this spectacular places become the home to jet-setters, celebrities and fashionistas alike who seek to indulge in a feast of accessories, separates and Haute Couture dresses! One designer than always impresses me is Reem Acra. This Lebanese creative force has an eye for feminine silhouettes, intricate embellishments and soft fabrics, all intertwined with a modern-edgy twist.

Reem Acra’s Ready-To-Wear and Pre-Fall collections are filled with gowns fit for a princess and suits perfect for a business woman, but what never seems to be missed its the sense that no matter what their role is, they are the epitome of the femme fatale. Reem Acra has been able to establish herself as one of the most sought-after designers, because of a continuous vision that allows women to feel beautiful, elegant, classy and always captivating.

The mysticism and allure in Acra’s designs, keeps editors guessing and fashionistas coveting every one of her pieces, giving her a deserved spot next to the already well-known power houses. Here is a compilation of some of the best looks from the Pre-Fall 2013 (white drop), Fall 2012 Ready-To-Wear (red drop) and Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear Collections (blue drop). The modern aesthetics, flattering silhouettes and beaded work are nothing short of fabulous!

Frugalicious Fashion: JLo+Teeology=TV Interview!!

Hello My Frugalistas!!
Haz Click Para Espanol!!

I love to feel comfortable while looking stylish, and when I was invited to exclusively preview Teeology, I couldn’t refuse! Let’s begin with saying the brand its personally curated by Jennifer Lopez (Yes!, That JLo!) and designer Erica Zohar! Ms. JLo has been ‘Spotted’ wearing them everywhere during her world tour! The concept its amazing!!! Graphic designers from all over the world submit their designs and people vote for their favorite ones! So, if you are a fashion forward and creative graphic designer, now you know what to do!!

The winners get paid, recognized with their names on the printed tees and the chance to have their work actually worn!! They can send as many designs as they like and only a limited edition of each design its manufactured, which means fresh and current content!! Now, this wouldn’t be THF unless the prices were totally frugalicious, right?!! Well my friends, Teeology seeks the haute frugalistas of the world, and to reach that, they have priced their gorg tees from $20 to $40!!! They are 100% cotton, super comfy, come in different shapes and styles, and the designs are amazing!! I don’t know about you but I’m SOLD!

During the preview I was interviewed, because you know I’m a style expert and all that! jk!, for NBC6 and Telemundo51 and here are the links to the videos! I hope you enjoy how I styled one of the tees and my take on Teeology! Continue reading

Hello My Friends!
Español Al Final De La Página

Welcome to your go-to spot for fashion, beauty and lifestyle inspiration! I know that fall is about to arrive and shower us with a cooler weather and orange leaves, so it is only reasonable that fashion bloggers talk about upcoming trends, right? WRONG!! This fashion blogger wants to make this summer linger as much as possible for you! why? because I care about my lovely readers and I know that winter can be pretty brutal in some countries.


Before taking the coats out and put on the boots, let’s enjoy our sundresses and skimpy suits as much as possible! Here is a Frugalicious guide of what to pack for a beautiful Tropical location, but wait! no need to limit this list for a trip to Bali or Cancun, your pool or local beach will do just fine! :) Continue reading

Sewing, Nuns & All the Glue In Between!!

I’m a huge fan of DIY Posts. In fact, I often encourage people who know how to do anything I don’t, to write about it. I wish I was more hands-on creative but my talent is not really next to paper and glue.

Funny story is: I went to an all girls private Catholic School (don’t picture mini-skirts and pillow fights!) and we had Crafts as a subject! We were supposed to sow, knit and use foil paper to create metallic paintings. :)

From that experience I cherish sewing the most! I love it! It relaxes me and it gives me the opportunity to buy something I love even if it’s 3 sizes larger because I can tailor it to my body! Many of my blouses and dresses have been turned from a size L into a S!


I want to start sharing DIY posts that inspire me and that make me smile! Those that I find on the web or that I think of and that I know would be awesome to try!! I also want to learn from you!

if you are a DIY kinda blogger, or know of some amazing ones, please feel free to comment or pingback on this post! For myself, is all about sharing the love, the knowledge and the experiences! :)
