TrendReport: Spiky Motorcycle Boots

   Some may say: "I'm sick and tired of the motorcycle thing", but for whatever reason this edgy trend has survived for years and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon...   In fact it's just getting yummier and funkier, with spikes all over leather jackets and boots, this is a fun way to innovate and feel the 80's (yet again) from Brit little darling Vivienne Westwood!!!   I seriously got so many compliments on my boots that I just had to share ;)Aldo Boots $180.00I guess the town of Vail is already testing the faux snow machines ;)These are the views of my girls (public) school!!Basic leggings, long sweater (H&M) and a cute leather jacket (XOXO)...yeah babe!!Stella and Dot bracelets www.stelladot.com/kareskeBeijos from the mountains,

LookBook: Harajuku-mini

   As my days progress with very little adult interaction, I feel the child inside of me growing stronger and stronger!! hehehe   So as to pay homage to this little phase I'm going through I put together a look with my newest cute little tee from Harajuku-mini! Yes, in case you're wondering it's Gwen Stefani's line for little ones sold at Target! Now, if you let your inner child out you can actually have a great time picking through those babies, did I mention they're 12.99 a piece?!   The only trouble is that this was an XL size, so it's not everyone of us who will be able to take full advantage of then, but what I what I suggest if you can't fit in them is to cut out the cartoonish little people…

TrendReport: Wear your White Jeans Now and Into Fall!

That old rule about white jeans not being allowed after Labor Day is as out as any other rule, really!For one, white is a very strong color for fall 2012, along with coral and cobalt blue - usually colors you associate with spring. Well, I guess this fall will feel like spring ;) - at least in your eyes.Michael Michael Kors ad campaign is a prime example of the chic and crisp white pant transitioning from fall to winter...And he does it so well with the camel accessories (my favorite way to wear white)! What I love about the styling on this photoshoot is that the girl wears gold or silver accessories and looks great and on trend either way. Proving that you can do it too!!!Here's a video showing 10 different ways you…

LookBook: The high and low military look

   These pics were taken a few weeks ago without me knowing about the edgy trends...well I guess that's why I do what I do ;)   This idea is to mix the fancier fabrics with the military "worn-out" piece (in this case, a denim shirt). I like to cinch my waist so add a bold belt and finish the look with girly accessories. It adds a personal touch.   Keep in mind this outfit was worn during summer time, for fall I suggest a heavier dress made of wool or velvet to maintain the chic aesthetic and still be playful, even a thick pair of tights with ankle booties will do it!Gold mullet pleated dress, H&M; denim shirt, Ralph Lauren; gladiator military green heels, Shutz. Beijos,

AccessoriZe: Silver time

As fashion related to clothes changes, fashion related to accessories and everything else in the "beauty" industry changes as well, and even though it's obviously GOLD time out there, it's also a great time to mix your metals and to explore them as well. Take a look at the trends and you can see that pretty much anything goes, it's the crazy 2010's for ya...you can totally be yourself and still be in vogue :) oh yes!! So, talking about metals some people simply look their best in silver and that's why my accessory look of the day is for the SILVER lovers out there!!Pyramid Double Wrap Bracelet-Cognac; Vintage Twist Bracelet-Gold (and gun metal); Lindsay Bangle-White; all by Stella & DotAlexandria Necklace; Stella & DotSilk shirt, Vince; suede pant, True Religion; sparkly silver belt,…

AccessoriZe: Autumn Coral

   Coral is such a strong color for Fall 2012. I always thought of coral as a summer hue but I guess not! In fact white is another "summer color" that is strong this fall and coral and white together makes it for a crisp, fresh outfit (at least in my little crazy head!).   I love to incorporate trends with classics as most of us do, so another way to wear this necklace is with a textured black dress with a cinched waist or a mod silhouette, very simple yet very elegant ;)    But most important is that the bib necklace can be dressed up or down, it goes well with a sophisticated dress and with a casual tank top and shorts or pants. Try it!!    I absolutely love the Olivia Bib Necklace,…

TrendReport: High fashion tennis shoes

Ladies and gents, believe it or not tennis shoes are making an appearance far away from the gym!Yes, they are high and fashion forward on the feet of the models and fashionistas around the world! Designers such as Isabel Marant and Marc Jacobs (to name a few) came out with their vision of the trend and it's sticking with all the celebs as well!! I can't tell you I love tennis shoes, that would be a big fat lie. But I'm actually finding myself so drawn to this trend that I added a Steve Madden tennis shoe to my wishlist for my birthday (coming this Friday!). Now, let's stop the bla-bla-bla and talk about how to wear them:The easiest way is really with your skinnies, whether denim or leather this trend looks great with…
