   This is a new segment I'm working on and testing it out, you see one of my favorite hobbies (to do on those snowy Saturday mornings, sipping endless warm coffee) is to find great buys online, I keep them all in the virtual bags in the hopes I'll be able to go back and click on the BUY button ;) -doesn't always happen- so I thought, why not share these great finds with you too? And that's what I'm doing....wishing I could get them all myself but hoping you'll be happy to find something for yourself!!! Forever 21 sale items, a real feather vest that comes in cream, nude and eggplant. Can't beat the 25 dollar price tag ;) Check it out: forever21.com***Attention, Forever 21 is giving an extra 50% off on the sale…

FashionNews: More Designer Collabs for ya!

   This month the fashion world is packed with designer collaborations. Starting with Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl's, a collection he created inspired by a trip to Istanbul, Turkey for the first time. "I wanted to merge the color of Istanbul with the graphic elements I use in my own collection to create something fresh", says the designer. Celebs rocking his designs for Kohl'sI love the color blocking and geometric patterns Narciso designs...very flattering in almost anyone!!    Karl Lagerfeld collab with cosmetics giant Shu Uemura comes with his drawing of the Mon Shu girl, a character he created to adorn the 17 piece makeup line! If like me, you don't know Karl has used Shu Uemura's eye shadows to color his sketches for over 20 years, not too surprised considering we're talking about the most…

AccessoriZe: Warby Parker

   I'm so excited to share this with you!   Browsing on Pinterest the other day I came across these super cute pair of sunglasses - something I've been looking for forever but couldn't really find the right thing- and so I went to their website warbyparker.com to check it out  Let me tell you I'm NOT an online shopper (I like to try things on, smell it, feel it, etc..) so of course I wasn't thrilled to see this company is based in New York City, but to my surprise I found out they can send you up to 5 pairs of sunglasses gratis, so you can try them on in the comfort of your homey! You have 5 days to try and play with the glasses and return them with the pre-paid return…

FashionNews: Adele and Burberry, real or not real?!

   Fresh news this morning when yet another designer-celebrity collab is giving people something to talk about. Well, nobody has confirmed anything yet but the news are circulating all around UK and the rest of the world for that matter.   Adele has worn the label in many red carpet occasions and let's face it, both the singer and the label are so proud to be English that only something really sharp can come out of that mix. Rumor has it it Adele will design "custom-made" clothing for the women with curves! (very much needed, considering the teeny tiny Burberry numbers) And has been approached by nothing less than Christopher Bailey himself!!! So exciting ;) Adele wearing a Burberry gownAdele wearing Burberry ProrsumCan't wait to see what happens!Beijos,

Apps for the clothes-minded

Just recently I found another fashion app that I really enjoy. Honestly I have a ton of them but don't really use much except for a couple and since I'm kinda skeptical I wasn't so sure I wanted to download another one of those in my phone, but guess what?!

Beauty S.O.S: The Adele!

 As fall draws closer and closer (especially for me moving to Colorado in a week!!) our make-up gets darker and richer and right now the look that's making everyone turn their heads is the Adele look! I've always been a huge fan of the cat eye (Audrey's, Brigitte's, Angelina's and now Adele's!!). I think the difference is that the new cat eye is thicker and can be drawn on the upper and lower lid, for a bigger impact. I also love the big puffy hair and boy, let me tell you that's the best trick for bad hair days ;)The Adele look was seeing at a lot of runways:  No matter which part of the look you like (whether the hair or make up or both) you can play along and transform in your own…

Think textured hair and think polished hair....meaning anything goes!!!   One thing i honestly believe though is to try something different, if not everyday then every week, even if it is a 'miss' well what the heck, at least you are creative and didn't let yourself be stuck in time for fear to look different ;)   Let's see what the fall fashionaisers hold for us, the creative minds who will try everything!!! ( ok, not everything) 1. The Textured Hair; is the long, messy, boho sort of hair. Looks like you have the "I don't care" attitude. Add a braid to the…
