SnookiLove by Nicole Polizzi & Double Zero

snooki style, snookis clothing line, snooki and double zero

Hi Loves,
Today I want to talk to you about one my favorite brands and definitely highlight of WWDMAGIC Market Week...I am referring to my favorite reformed guidette's clothing line, Snooki Love by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. 
Prepare to swallow your skepticism, because this tiny statured momma of 1 and 1/2 (she's recently announced her bun in the oven) will give you a chic surprise. I got to preview her line and speak to her...She was such sweetie, humble, girl's girl. 


SPANISH
Hoy les quiero hablar de una de las marcas que mas me gustaron durante mi experiencia en WWDMAGIC. 
Me refiero a la marca creada por Snooki y la marca Double Zero.
Digan lo que digan de la estrella de el show tan polemico, Jersey Shore pero le cuento que es una mujer cambianda, una mami de 1 1/2 medi, acaba de anunciar su reciente embarazo. 
Fue un placer hablar con ella.


Here are some of my favorite pieces by Nicole and a fun interview!
Aqui les muestro mis prendas favorita y una entrevista.

CC: What was your inspiration for the collection?
Nicole: I feel like every girl would love to have their clothing line, I got the opportunity. I have been searching for 2 years to work with a good company, I finally found Double Zero & they just understand fashion, they know what's in. They sell at my favorite stores, Forever21, Charlotte Russe...That's basically where I shop, so I work with my designer Jason & basically for this Fall line, I searched for things that I like and tweak it to make it my own.
It's trendy clothing with the Snooki seal, I wanted it to fit everyone's personality. The business woman, the loungy girl, the sexy girl.

CC: Can the line fit into everyone's wardrobe?
Nicole: Absolutely! I feel like I am 10 different people in one body, just because I am a mom. I usually don't wear makeup or like dressing up, so sometimes, I will just wearing leggings and a crop top, which is exactly what I put in the line. Also you can wear that same crop top with a cute skirt and Jazz it up to go out!

CC: You have a new life, being a mommy and the amazing transformation of your body. Going fromyour old body to a new physique makes it hard to dress, are your pieces versatile enough to survive the transition?
Nicole: Yeah, the 2 things I wanted in my line was for it to be affordable. I am a bargain shopper. I am very cheap.
I also wanted my sizes to fit every body.
I am working to fit everybody's sizes.

CC: I am a Jersey girl myself, is there a Jersey stamp on the clothes...where's NJ in the collection?
Nicole: Well, I have a lot of leopard.
Jersey is glam and you want to stand out, so there's a lot of pieces for that purpose.

CC: What's your one style tip to rock anything?
Nicole: I would say, have the confidence!
You can be wearing s sexy- ass dress and nice heels, but if you play it like you're not confident, people can tell. You have to show it in your personality first, then you can rock anything.

CC: What are you TV and junk food guilty pleasures?
Nicole: Ice cream, any type of ice cream, I'll eat it, I love it. I can eat the whole can.
My guilty pleasure on TV is MobWives 

Thanks for talking to me, it was lovely.

Celebrity Inspired: Jessica Alba Kenzo Inverted Pleat Neoprene Skirt



 Jessica Alba mtv movie awards 2014 look for less


I have told you in several ocassions, such as, HERE or HERE, how much I love midi skirts. I already own a black one but wanted to get one more appropriate for the Spring & Summer months. Nothing says, sunny weather like, Neon. I purchased this skirt from Nordstrom the week before the MTV Movie Awards & when I saw Jessica Alba's outfit, re-creating it was a no brainer.
Jessica Alba is wearing a Kenzo skirt, Piece D'anarchive top, Jimmy Choo Pumps, and Narciso Rodriguez clutch. 
Her look rings up to approximately $2,500 
My look comes to a total of $149


SPANISH
En varias ocasiones les he dicho cuanto me encantan las faldas midi, las cuales son aquellas que te llegan justo a la mitad de tus espinillas. Son tan femeninas y elegantes que tener solo una, pues no era suficiente, asi que compre esta en color limon para las estaciones mas calidas y soleadas. 
La compre una semana antes de los MTV Movie Awards, tan pronto vi a Jessica Alba con una falda muy parecida, se me ocurrio recrear su look. Espero que les guste.
El look de Jessica cuesta mas o menos $2,500 USD
El mio costo exactamente $149 USD

I told you about this jacket a few months ago on Instagram.
I fell in love with it and decided to try it on, take a selfie, post it on Instagram and let it go.
I received such great feedback on it, kept thinking about it for days until I couldn't resist and snatched it up!
Get ready for lots of outfits with these beauty, Vegas is getting warmer by the day so I need to get as much use of it as possible like...NOW.
Hope you like this outfit, It's a errand running outfit but this jacket totally elevates the look.
I also wore it over dress for a warm yet gloomy day, see it HERE


SPANISH
Les he contado sobre esta chaqueta de Anthropologie en varias ocasiones, mi amor por ella empezo AQUI
Despues de tomar esta selfie con ella y recibir tan buenos comentarios de su parte, decidi comprala.

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.
