Delicia ai ai ai ai!

I must share my happiness to have finally found a little time to see my girls and hang out while being able to try out the "Oh-so-talked-about" Delicia (the newest restaurant hot spot in Indy!), must also mention it is delish indeed! So to make a long story short we loved Delicia so much we're planning a monthly trip there to try all of the decadent gourmet dishes from their Latin Cuisine style menu, now I'm no food expert my friends, I'm just a fashion lover and enthusiast who happens to cook really well and have a taste for the good stuff (if you are doubting, ask hubs! Besides my fashion sense, my cooking skills are also another good trait I inherited from dad....along with lots of the bad ones! Hahahaha) Well back to…

Do the Kind Thing

Hello my most dear friends, in the midst of the season of giving I'd like to share a story I've received the honor to be asked to feature. With Christmas just around the corner, I hope this will warm your hearts as it did mine. This is a special story of two boys, Jeremy and Nick whose projects were voted on the Do the KIND Thing Projects: Each month, KIND supports one project with $10,000. You can Create your project to Do The Kind Thing, or support amazing ideas with a kind act. If you are not familiar with the KIND bars, they are delicious and as they like to say a bar full of healthful tastiness (I love them) these guys believe that a company can do well while doing good and from that…

Leith Clark Collection for Warby Parker

I've wrote a post about Warby Parker sunglasses over a year ago the reason being I'm so passionate about their cause, story and product! "Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point." They inspire me to say the least but I'm not going to bore you with long lines, if you are not familiar with them and their prodigious work take a look at their website: warbyparker.com and if you don't remember my first post in which I was over the moon with excitement check it out: 9fd.9f9.myftpupload.com/accessorize-warby-parker/ This time around I'd like to share with you guys their newest collection designed by fashionista Leith Clark, the Canadian native who's the editor of British mag Lula  (founded by Leith…

Sun King CANvitational – Indy

Saturday was a super nice day here in Indy, and off we went to our first CANvitational event, which was a beer tasting festival featuring over 30 breweries from all over America brought to the heart of Indy.  Nice thing about this event is that you could vote for your favorite art charity to get a grant, so you could have fun while helping the community ;) [caption id="attachment_2664" align="alignnone" width="640"] Downtown Indy[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2666" align="alignnone" width="640"] Georgia Street Sun King's Canvitational, Downton Indianapolis[/caption] After a few this is what happens....the music was fun, the weather couldn't have been prettier and the company was super! If the "Kentucky" girl was making money to wear that can I bet it was the most fun job on the planet! Hahahaha Pretzel necklaces handy (or necky!) and…

Get ready for the Holidays with Picks from the Locals!

[caption id="attachment_2632" align="alignnone" width="640"] adstylehouse.com[/caption] I am so very flattered to have been invited by Julia from the Aesthetic Design Style House and other local Indy  designers that I admire so much such as Nataliya Kitic and Truen Jaimes to name a couple, to have my picks from their holiday catalog. So here are the pieces that would make me a happy gal: I love the Stela Dress from Studio NTK, which has pleather accents. The nicest thing is that it is all made in Indiana. It doesn't get any more local than this!

Fashion Buzz: Pattern September Issue

For the last couple of days I guess I can say I was having my Momentum, at least that's how it felt for me. Not only I got to join Pattern which is an Indianapolis based fashion community but I got a feature in their stunning publication (which went international!) on the personal shoppers segment "Beyond The Boudoir" along with some of Indy's strongest talents such as legendary Murph Damron and stylish Sean J. Buckener. Needless to say how honored, excited and over the moon I am, so I want to share a few highlights of such a cool day, it was Friday the 13th by the way ;) [caption id="attachment_2622" align="alignnone" width="640"] To Subscribe go to:http://www.patternindy.com/[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2611" align="alignnone" width="640"] Photo by Will FosterArticle by Madison Hromadka from the Preppy Guide to Life[/caption]…

FashionBuzz: Phillip Lim for Target

[caption id="attachment_2454" align="alignnone" width="947"] Target Campaign[/caption] As some of you may know, I'm sure there's been much anticipation for Phillip Lim's (industry-darling) collaboration collection for target. Although I have to say I swore I won't get overly excited anymore since my major disappointment over Prabal Gurung's one that I was counting the freaking seconds for it and realized only a few pieces of the collection actually made it to my store and everything was sold out online a couple hours later :( Anyway, I do hope they'll have a bigger stock on the awesome pieces this time! And of course that the clothes are better finished (think lining the dresses for instance!) So, let's peek some of the goodies that will be in the stores on the 15th [caption id="attachment_2456" align="alignnone" width="600"] Separates are…
