LOOK Style Society Las Vegas



Last week I was invited to tour and sample Vegas' latest ode to fabulosity, I am talking about the new Beauty Destination, LOOK Style Society. The self-described Beauty Destination has no choice but to tittle itself as such, and be categorized by others as such...I can't find any other term to describe it.
This is not a salon or spa or blow dry bar, it's all of those  (at the most glam level) and more.
LOOK's appearance may intimidate your wallet , but guess what? 
Their prices are beyond reasonable
LOOK Style Society is located in Town Square Las Vegas

SPANISH
la semana pasada fui invitada a darle un tour y a recibir uno de los servicios de LOOK Style Society. LOOK es un destino de belleza, asi se describe si mismo y esa es la unia descripcion que yo podria ofrecer. 
No es un salon o un Spa, no es un bar de cepillado; es todos eso y mas...es una experiencia 
(al nivel mas lujoso y glamuroso). 
Al entrar a LOOK, su aparienci te enamora pero puede intimidar, hoy estoy aqui para darte la tranquilidad y garantia de sus precios so concuerdan con su calidad y apariencia...la verdad que LOOK es muy acsequible.


Every corner of LOOK is breathtaking, there is so much attention to detail. 
This space and the team behind it really cater to the every need of the customer.
This place is meant to give you an experience rather than a just a service, you can shop, get pampered, or have a coffee at their Parisian style cafe...pictured below.

Cada esquina de LOOK es asombrosa, todo detalle ha sido cuidadosamente creado.
El local y el equipo de trabajo que de este templo de belleza es genial, todos muy atentos y trabajadores.
No solo puedes consentirte, puedes hacer compritas y hasta tomarte un espresso en su cafe estilo Parisino. 





Whatever beauty necessity you have, LOOK has got it!
Their retail variety is impressive, you can buy Kerastase, Shu Uemura, Essie, Redken  and much more.


LOOK is not only equipped with a Tanning Space, Stylist Lounge, Medspa ( Nip and tucks, ladies), but they also have Sam Villa's Blowout bar and the Essie Lounge.
The Essie Lounge Carries ALL Essie colors....ALL OF THEM.
 Essie's West Coast Flagship location
Only location globally to offer this amount of colors.
LOOK also has a lounge for special events & larger groups. This place is great for bridal parties, sweet 16's, Trunk shows and much more. 

LOOK ofrece servico de bronseado sin sol organico, un salon de belleza, un bar de cepillado y un Spa Medico y una de sus instalaciones es la Essie Lounge.
La Essie Lounge es el segundo local de mas grande del pais y ofrece TODOS los colores de esmalte Essie.
Tambien tienen una sala privada para fiestas y mas.





I got to try the Blowout Bar and it did not disappoint.
Here's my hair before. 


The entire staff was so attentive and professional, I think they checked on me and offered me a drink over 5 times, you really feel pampered the whole time.
My blowout was done by the lovely, she was great, so sweet!
I asked her about her training & experience, which was a pleasant surprise; All the stylist at the blowout bar are constantly learning & improving their skills under the guidance of hair guru, Sam Villa.



 Did she do a great job or what???








Huge thank you to Kimberly as well as everyone at LOOK Style Society for their kind treatment, for allowing us to shoot at their space, and my fab blowout.

WWDMAGIC Brand Love

During WWDMAGIC I had a chance to view so many brands, wonderful ones with amazing stories and teams behind them. There were literally thousands of brands I could tell you about, however, I have chosen those that stood out the most and here's a bit about them! Hope you enjoy!

SPANISH
Durante WWDMAGIC tuve la oprtunidad de ver los productos de muchas marcas y disenadores, productos geniales, creados por equipos de trabajo con dedicacion y muchisima pasion por su arte. HAY muchas marcas de las cuales puedo contarles pero he decidido hablarles de mis favoritas. Espero que estas marcas les encaten tanto como a mi.

LUCY PARIS

Lucy Paris was probably the 3rd booth I visited and It made such an impression on me, I couldn't stop raving about it to other bloggers or thinking about it myself!! They have gorgeous, super trendy pieces at affordable prices. There wasn't a single item I didn't love...They have great jackets and blazers (all with a chic/unexpected twist). Think of them as, Statement Jackets! Lucy Paris is now available at Bloomingdales 

Por lo que recuerdo, Lucy Paris fue una de las primeras cabinas que visite pero en nunca me olvide de esta marca, es mas hable de ella con todas las blogueras presentes, y le conte hasta al gato del vecino sobre sus prendas divinas. Tienen ropa muy a la moda, con detalles muy curiosos y que seguramente roban miradas. El punto fuerte de esta marca son sus chaquetas y blazers. 
Lucy Paris se encuentra disponible en Bloomingdales.

Another brand I fell in love with is, Imoshion! A vegan handbag brand that makes the most adorable and lust-worthy handbags at very affordable prices! What I love about Imoshion is the attention to detail. Their bags always have some intricate detailing that is sure to make an outfit!

Otra marca que me encato fue Imoshion! es una marca de bolsos sinteticos. Imoshion ofrece bolsos en tendecia a muy buenos precios.

You guys know that I love all these vintage, classic, timeless and chic! Who would have thought all of these qualities could be found in a BIKE?? Yeah, a bicycle...A MOSI Bicycle, that is!
Mosi bikes are vintage inspired, high end and great quality. from the leather detailing to the lights and the mechanical stuff! Check them out, they're BEAUTIFUL
I had a chance to speak to the CEO of Mosi and It was wonderful to see how passionate this company is about their product and future, they pour all of that into their product and it shows!


Las bicicletas tienes siluetas y caracteristicas muy clasicas, vintage y sobretodo muy chic! Estas bicicletas meenamoraron y despues de hacer un poco de "investigaciones" les puedo decir que la parte mecanica vale tanto la pena como su parte estetica.

How to Wear Suit Separates

 photo cf049857-886f-4920-af74-a8eb7993d592_zpsfa7162bb.jpg


In efforts to build a stronger wardrobe and having my closet always deliver, at any moment and for any occasion, I have started shopping for versatile and reliable pieces. Pieces that mix well with each other, pieces that can stand alone and be as gorgeous together, as they are with just a plain white tee. I find that the best pieces to achieve this, are  suit separates. They are individually crisp, classic, tailored and polished. This outfit could have easily transformed into an executive look with the help of a button down and solid-colored pumps. On today's look I'm showing you how to make your office look very casual, yet chic!

SPANISH
Como les he dicho, en este 2014 quiero mejorar mi vestuario, volverlo solido. Solido de manera que cuando quiera, para cualquier ocasion o razon, pueda confiar en los contenidos de mi closet. He descubierto que la mejor manera de lograr estas varios "requerimientos" es comprando prendas de traje por separado, prendas que usualmente usarias en un ambiente ejecutivo. Este tipo de prendas siempre se vera bien puesta, con buena orma, elegante y pulida pero al ser mezcladas con ropa mas casual como en esta pinta, te veras casual pero tambien muy muy chic.

How to Transition a Maxi Dress from Winter to Spring


 photo 4da38c19-ec42-4dbf-bc99-fbf54226ff9c_zps4b4843cc.jpg


The weather between seasons in Vegas is always unpredictable, I started the day off with one of my essential Spring purchases, a white maxi dress and by the time I was ready to shoot photos, the sun went away and along came the gloomy winds. I apologize for the inconsistent lighting and rather amateur editing, I am still getting used to my new camera/lens and computer.
If the weather ruins your cute Summer dress, throw on a bright colored moto jacket in a light fabric, this one is a light tweed and cotton.



SPANISH
El clima siempre es impredecible en Vegas entre estaciones. En este dia me puse una prenda esencial para la primavera, un vestido maxi blanco pero a la hora de tomar fotos, el sol se escondio y llego el viento el cual produjo fotos un poco obscuras. Todavia estoy tratando de acostumbrarme a mi nueva camara/lente y computadora asi que perdonen la inconsistencia en la calidad de estas fotos. 

Si te vez en una situacion como la mia y tu look con un vestido se dana, simplemente ponte un chaqueta estilo moto en un color vivo, en una tela liviana.

Pretty Little Liars Collection

 photo image_zpse822ac23.jpg


I have been so into moto jackets lately, I have purchased about 3 in the past month and each one is brighter than the next. This one specifically is from Aeropostale's Pretty Little Liars collection, its so buttery soft and bright and I love that it's inspired by Aria whom is totally my favorite/girl crush. I wore this on a very casual day, filled with errands during which I didn't intend to take outfit photos. I hope you enjoy this very casual outfit.
