Things That Made Me Smile: My Brother's Wedding

Aug 28, 2013

Paradise I miss you !
Don't let the beautiful image fool you, we were sweating bullets literally.
 Jumping for joy just because we can.
The other half a.k.a Breakfast at Cindi's photographer.
You know damn well I would not last more than the ceremony in heels.
The gorgeous bride and groom my brother and new sister.
 We walked into reception dancing to Justin Timberlake's Sexy Back, lol.

And they lived happily after.
Not! but they will try or I'll kick my brother's butt.

A little over a month ago my other brother got married in the our beautiful home country of Dominican Republic. It was at a gorgeous all inclusive resort in Punta Cana (basically like saying you went to the Hamptons in New York). I mean there was unlimited fruity girly cocktails and all you can eat restaurants everywhere, what more could a girl ask for. It was fun, amazing and incredibly hot. I mean I think I lost a pound a day sweating  but I clearly made up for it at the all you can eat buffet.

Illustrating Fashion: Cut- Out Dresses

Aug 27, 2013

I'm super picky when it comes to dresses. The style I feel more comfortable with and I feel looks great on many body types is the A-line dress. And of course I like this style because it's reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in the 50's and 60's. The perfect update of the A-line dress is a small cut out, its sexy yet understated. Above are some A-line cut out dresses I illustrated in Fall colors and patterns.

And if you like the trend here are some you guys can buy:

Twerking in Brooklyn (VMA Favorite Looks)

Aug 26, 2013

 I think these lovely ladies killed it last night in Brooklyn at the MTV Video Music Awards in these fabulous dresses. We all know why the title to this post starts with "Twerking" and it all comes down to one word "Miley". I will not discuss my feelings about that performance because we are all entitled to our own opinions, lets just say it was a performance and no matter what I still love the song "We Can't Stop" as this summer's anthem.

 But to be truly honest I just watched the VMA's for the love of my life Justin Timberlake. 
Loved his mini twenty minute concert, it was a walk down pop memory lane.

And then this happened and I lost it! I was in teeny bopper freaking heaven ladies and gents. 
I sense a reunion tour coming soon and if this is true I'm emptying out my piggy bank for front row tickets.

Happy Monday : )

A Little Inspiration . . .

Aug 23, 2013

What better way to express this quote by Rachel Zoe than with the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw. 
People who aren't into fashion love to question those who are. They love to ask why is it so important? 
Why is this color for this season and not that season? Why pay so much for that one item? Why put
so much effort into one outfit? Let me tell you why because fashion is a form of art. And sometimes 
people don't want to speak about their mood, they just want to showcase it in their most fabulous garments.

Have a great weekend : )

Splurge or Save: A Lace Daydream

Aug 22, 2013

One of my favorite collections of all time was Valentino's Spring 2012 Ready-to-wear collection. All the pieces were so lady-like and sophisticated. From the laces, silks, goddess-like braids to the delicate jewelry the whole collection was a gracefully seductive dream. Since, this dress is Valentino you know there was going to be a hefty price for it. But you can have a memory of this collection with this Ark & Co. lace dress for under $60 bucks. There also are similar versions of this dress I've seen at our favorite fast-fashion chain stores Zara and H&M.

Wishlist Wednesday . . . Duh!

Aug 21, 2013

I'm pretty sure you guys have heard of a little known website called Pinterest right? All I know is I've been addicted to it since it was introduced to me. Warning though it is extremely time consuming in the sense that you will do nothing all day but pin things you wish you had and places you want to go to. I have a board called shopping list on there where I pin all the gorgeous things I want at the moment. And if on Friday also known as pay day I have a little extra cash laying around I'll buy a few things off this board. So, I thought why not share all the lovely things my heart desires with you guys on Wednesdays also known as hump day meaning its almost Friday (almost the weekend)!

Trend Watch: It's a Tee Thing

Aug 19, 2013

If you're lazy when it comes to dressing up in the morning but still want to form some type of fashion statement with your outfit without saying "I'm lazy and I don't care what I put on this morning" then buy some tees. Graphic tees to be exact. They come in all types of colors, sizes, and fit.You can wear ones with inspirational quotes or just tell the world you're an Instragram Selfie whore with Sincerely Jules "Celfie" tee. Get it? celfie with a "C" like the the infamous Celine tee. Anyways, there are graphic tees for every type of personality out there. 

Plus they possess two of my favorite qualities:
1. They're affordable 
2. And extremely comfortable

Peplum, Lace & Curls

Aug 16, 2013

I'm not one for taking many pictures of myself because well I'm not as confident as other bloggers. But I figured why not start taking outfit pictures to boost my confidence, this is a fashion blog after all. Sorry for the blurriness of the picture above but I took it a couple of week ago while out in Miami with my iPhone. I'm definitely not going to post outfit pictures everyday because lets be realistic sometimes we wake up and just throw on the first thing in our closets, which I do a lot of. I love fashion but I think comfort for me is more important. Anyways, so yeah that's that. 

Besides starting to take pictures of my outfits I also started wearing my hair natural (curly) about 3 months ago. I'm on this whole natural hair journey to repair my hair from heat damage and honestly I'm tired of frying my hair straight. I'll start posting curly hair products that work for me as well as hair updates.

Happy Friday : )

J.Crew Gets Bejeweled for Fall

Aug 15, 2013

This season's finishing touch for J.Crew is everything jeweled and I'm loving it. J.Crew is turning boring skinny jeans, last season chambray shirts and ordinary sweatshirts into sparkly pieces of wearable art. So, anybody want to send me a J.Crew gift card I'd be more than happy to accept it : )

Lunch Break Craving: Everything is Rosy

Aug 14, 2013

I may or may not have a slightly unhealthy obsession with grey sweatshirts. Sue me! They're just so comfortable and classic. Throw some sequins, sparkles, color or print on it and I'm done for.

This Rose Print Sweatshirt from Miss Selfridge's has me wanting a hit. I came across it last night while browsing shopping sites and fell in love except of course like all love stories nothing is perfect. They didn't have my size of course. Only size 0 available because there seem to be a lot of grey sweatshirt addicts like myself out there. Then this morning I checked the site again and now they have sizes 0 and 2. So, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for size 4 to be available by this afternoon or maybe even tonight. Nothing wrong with wishful thinking.

That image of Kiera Knightley is from last years Harper's Bazaar UK September issue, which I have had on the background of every electronic device I probably own by now.

Fashion Scoop: 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target

Aug 13, 2013

Oh Target how I love thee !

Another awesome designer collaboration that doesn't hurt my pockets. September 15th why aren't you here yet? The clothing will range from $19.99 to $299.99 and the accessories which I am most excited about range from $19.99 to $59.99.

Let's be honest I really am just excited for the bags, I mean look at them. They're dead ringers for the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchels every fashionista is in love with. I was just thinking I want a new everyday bag for Fall and now I think I may have found one for under $60. Can't wait for September 15th, I want a big everyday tote and a small weekend cross body bag. And that floral dress is catching my attention too.

Wish I Were Wearing: Positively Charming

Aug 12, 2013

Happy Monday !
And with that said I wish I were wearing this little light and positive ensemble up there.
I'm currently obsessed with that ModCloth top with incorporates two of my favorite style details lace and breton stripes.

Lunch Break Craving: As If !

Aug 8, 2013

Okay so who did not want this software for their computers when they saw Clueless for the first time?! Everyone, exactly. Random, I know but every morning I wake up thinking why didn't I choose my outfit for the next day before I went to sleep. But of course I didn't because I'm lazy and I spend a good 30 minutes looking for an outfit every morning.

How cool is this Mac Desktop App called Dress Assistant. I'm seriously considering getting it because 
1. It looks cool 
2. I'm bored like that and 
3. Its just cool and I want it.
