Mint and Chambray...

One of the things that I have learned about fashion is that you have to test the waters and go outside of your comfort zone.  I did that with this outfit and I must say I love this combination, the denim on denim is subtle enough that it doesn't scream a Britney Spears and JT denim disaster back in 2001.  I also love the fact that you can turn this outfit into and instant mommy on the go by adding a pair of cute flats.  Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone on a look?

Una de las cosas que he aprendido acerca de la moda es que hay que probar las aguas y salir de su zona de comodidad. Yo lo hice con este atuendo y tengo que decir que me encanta esta combinación, la mezcla de mahón sobre mahón es suficientemente sutil, que no se ve como el desastre que llevaba Britney Spears y Justin Timberlake en el 2001. También me encanta el hecho que puedes cambiar este atuendo rápidamente a un look chic para una mamá que siempre esta lista para salir con un simple cambio a un par de zapatos "flat".  Ustedes han salido alguna vez de su zona de comodidad en un look?

The funny thing about taking pictures in the park is the fact that there are people all over the place and I always get the funny faces as I am taking my pictures with my tripod.  At first I was a little shy but now its like yea I am the weirdo taking selfies in the park on my lunch break.  
La cosa mas graciosa de sacarse fotos en un parque es que siempre hay gente, y me dan las miradas mas raras mientras yo estoy ahi sacandome fotos sola.  Al principio yo estaba un poco timida pero ahora no me importa y pienso si soy la chica rara tomandose fotos de si misma en el parque en mi hora de lunch.

Zebra Print And A Great Pair Of Heels!

I purchased this top from Forever 21 because I liked the print, but at the same time I was not too sure about the high low cut but I am glad that I did because its flowy and it fits perfect.  It has quickly become one of my go to shirts.  This time i have paired it with a pair of orange skinny pants and a blazer to keep it work appropriate.  How about these heels?! aren't they fabulous? I bought them for $5 from Goodwill!!! I love going to thrift stores but lately I haven't found anything so when I went with my grandmother to find a luggage for her I wasn't looking for anything but while browsing the aisles I found these beauties.  I mean they look brand new and they too have become a go to item in my closet.
Compré esta camiseta de Forever 21 porque me gustaba el estampado, pero al mismo tiempo yo no estaba muy segura de comprarla porque el corte que tiene, pero estoy contenta de haberlo hecho porque es fluida y me queda perfecto. Se ha convertido rápidamente en un articulo de ropa que uso frequente. Esta vez me la puse con un par de pantalones ajustados de color naranja y una chaqueta para que sea apropiado para el trabajo. ¿Qué tal estos tacones! ¿no son fabuloso? Los compré por $5 de Goodwill! Me encanta ir a tiendas de segunda mano, pero últimamente no he encontrado nada, así que cuando fui con mi abuela para encontrar un equipaje para ella no estaba buscando nada, pero cuando estaba caminando por los pasillos encontré estas bellezas. Y les cuento que estan como nuevos y también se han convertido en los zapatos mas usados en mi armario.

Top/Camisa: F21 / Pants/Pantalon: It's Fashion / Blazer/Chaqueta: Charlotte Russe / Shoes/Zapatos: Laundry by Shelli Segal / Jewelry/Joyas: Piperlime / Watch/Reloj: MK / Lipstick/Labial: Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin

How fabulous do these shoes look? I am so happy that I found these! They are very comfy and they have great detail.  They truly are a pair of good looking shoes.
Son fabulosos estos zapatos no? Estoy muy contenta de haberlo conseguidos.  Son super comodos y ademas que tienen unos detalles hermosos.  Son unos zapatos que lucen muy bien.

Have a great weekend / Que tengan un buen fin de semana

For this show I wanted to go for a rocker chic look, I found this fabulous shirt a a local store in NC for a very good deal (not more than $15).  Nothing says rocker chic like an off the shoulder graphic shirt, a statement gold necklace and gold studded black heels.

Shoes/Zapatos: Jessica Simpson
Necklace/Collar: Lola Blue
Watch/Reloj: MK

My hairstylist/makeup artist and good friend the talented Jackie Schenk (grafitti salon)

I was invited to a fashion show 2 weeks ago, it was the first event I have ever been to since I started blogging in the beginning of this year.  I was able to go backstage where all the models were getting hair and makeup done and it was such a rush being a part of all of it.  They had a trunk-style setup outside with different vendors.  To open the show they had a band called The Black Cadillacs which gave the show a great vibe, the fashion was very rocker chic, These are up and coming local designers from NC. I can see myself wearing a lot of the pieces that I saw on the runway.  I am very grateful to had the chance to be a part of this event, I was able to meet a lot of great people including a radio personality/nascar correspondent which I admire her southern girl charm and great style.  Hopefully this even will open doors for future events/collaborations.

Fashion News: Eva Mendes for NY & Co.

So I was clicking through today and I saw the Eva Mendes has come out with a clothing line for NY & Co.  Right away I had to take a look at what she came out with and I can say that I am not surprise that I love everything!! She has impeccable taste and she is always looking fabulous on the red carpet.  She knows how to dress the curves she has in a way that accentuates them tastefully and being latina myself I definitely look to her as another fashion icon/inspiration because I mean who doesn't want to look as fabulous (or at least close to it) as Eva Mendes does.  Her line is affordable work pieces that can easily be transformed for a night out on the town.  Here are some of my favorite items, what do you think about her line? Click here to view her line.

Have a great weekend!

How To Add A Touch Of Metallic *Product Review*

So I was perusing through Wal-Mart last night waiting for my son's medicine to be ready (which if you use Wal-Mart you know it's like watching paint dry) and I saw a clearance rack where they had quite a bit of items for nails so I decided to buy a few and do a couple of reviews.  For this post I am going to review a Sally Hansen nail polish that I bought for $4 (original price was $6.48) I fell in love with the color which is called Wedding Glitters which is a sparkly gold metallic color.  I must say that so far I am loving it, it dries really quickly and although I've only had it on since last night I can tell that it's going to last for a few days since I washed dishes (twice) today and I did not use gloves and the color did not chip.  This is a good way to add a little touch of metallic to any outfit.  So this is definitely a keeper!

I love when the sun hits to color it is very sparkly... It is so girly with an edge

A Little Touch Of Leopard To Spice It Up!

Top/Camisa: It's Fashion
Pants/Pantalones: Leith
Shoes/Zapatos: Nine West
Jewelry/Joyas: Lola Blue the Closet
Sunnies/Gafas: Ray-Ban

sorry the pictures have not been edited and for some reason my work computer does not let me make the last one any bigger... 

So I have been without a laptop top for 2 weeks and this has made blogging very hard for me.   I will try my hardest to keep on blogging from my iPad (scratch this last statement being that I tried to do this and I could not upload my pictures).  For this look I wanted something comfy and chic and for this I went with my Leith track pants (I absolutely love these pants).  Do you have a go to item in your closet?
Así que he estado sin mi laptop durante 2 semanas y ha sido muy difícil para mi mantener el blog al dia. Voy a intentar mi mejor esfuerzo para seguir los blogs de mi iPad (vamos a borrar esta última afirmación ya que anoche trate de hacer esto y no pude subir mis fotos). Para este look quería algo cómodo y elegante, y por eso me fui con mis pantalones de chándal Leith (Me encantan estos pantalones). Ustedes tienen un artículo que usan frequente en su armario?
