Must you be your 8 year old self & clothe yourself in everything that is visible once you open your closet? is the question I asked myself after looking at these photos for the first time. At first this outfit was meant to be practical, for a day of errands & then turned into awalking fashion lab. Once I put it on, I looked at it ,frowned & told myself "I need something else" which then gave me the excuse to try what I've been pinning & dreaming about; heels & socks + a red lip + my latest color crush, oh and Farrah Fawcett hair to top it off. While it is not dreadful, it is not my favorite, but I love the lighting in these photos!

Neon Challenge


Hey Dolls,
Two of my favorite girls have come together to create fashion challenges, Every week Dani & Flor choose a trend or fashion criteria for bloggers all over the world to get inspired by and this week they chose one of Spring's hottest trends, NEON. It is still winter so I wanted to incorporate neon into my outfit in a mild way (there's nothing mild about htese shoes though) I hope you like what I did.

Quite Eventful

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Taking outfit photos is no special affair, usually. I've chosen the spot featured on most of my posts because, well, the scenery is fantastic & it's lonely enough to feel comfortable swirling & being silly which makes for good pictures. So you should imagine my surprise when in the midst of shooting these photos, a cloud of sand came towards me while making an extremely obnoxious sound followed by neon moving objects getting closer and closer to me, that is when I crouched down praying for my life ( Ive never really experienced real danger so...). My lovely photographer then enlightened me while cracking up " it's some kids on dirt bikes stooopid" that wasn't much better because they all saw me posing for photos & sadly I distracted one of them which landed him into a ditch behind me (feet up in the air). I didn't get a photo, which I know regret, but gave me ome writing material.

Sip of Wine!


Are you a sucker for Valentine's Day? I am, and a bit ashamed, saying so brings me to a little self discovery; I am marketting's best target. I fall for it all, catchy phrases, pretty packaging and such. It should come as no surprise that with the coming of the "love celebrating" holiday my wardrobe has suffered.
I'm loving pinks, reds, ruffles & bows, doesn't this outfit show it.

Classic with a Twist


I've been starring at my computer screen for about 30 minutes trying to figure out what to write & I guess being the perfectionist that I am, hitting the publish button without meaningful text seems unacceptable. I guess after 30 minutes of scavenging for something has brought me to the realization that I'm a little too hard on myself & MCC closet is what I do to unwind rather than put even more pressure on myself, so I'm telling myself that it's okay & I'm moving on to some "How I Met Your Mother" & cooking without beating myself up for not putting out a "perfect" post.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

At first glance Dolce & Gabanna's star print didn't provoke any type of excitement in me. In fact, I thought it was a bit cartoon-ish & not something it i would be invested in. I decided to still give it a chance and try on a few pieces in a dressing room (no safer way, right?) after the akward styling session, I was sold. I finally opted for this blouse because of it's simplicity in shape & how easy to style it is. I wore it with some classic shapes & colors to add some polish.

P.S. I had to wear & shoot this outfit twice because of bad lighting!

Wardrobe Tips 2

COVER snake

As I promised to all of you lovely gals who read Maria Camila's Closet on the first day of 2012, I'm doing everything I can to improve your experience on this very blog. It's so important to me that you not only walk away with the sight of a cute outfit but that you also walk away with useful info & tips. I have mentioned before that I'm not the type of girl who wears an item just one time, I love making the most out of every piece I purchase & why not,  help you do the same. I received such great feedback on the last post I did with Cobalt Jeans which gave me the motivation to incorporate this type of post in MCC's regular schedule.
P.S. Feel free to email me, tweet me and post on my facebook wall ideas for the next Wardrobe Tips post!

Printed Love


It's official! I am smitten with leopard print & would like to lobby on it's behalf to get the very derserved tittle of neutral color, It really goes well with everything. As a "Jersey girl" far away from home donning the print can lead to some ignorant finger pointing & awkard "Are you friends with Snooki?" interrogations, but leopard print is just so damn beautiful...I'd say it's worth it. If you don't agree with my neutral color theory, just take a look at how well it compliments the beautiful orange color of the handbag. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed wearing this little blazer & let me know in the comment section how you feel about leopard print.

Grey Suede Hat


Hey dolls,
I hope you are all doing well & excited for the weekend. I wore this outfit to keep warm but bring a little joy to my winter wardrobe. I'm not really a hat person & even after my mom told me this hat was too old even more my abuelita, I have been wearing it a lot.
Hope you like it! Xo

P.S. It looks as though I have my eyes closed in every picture but I don't, It's just the hat combined with my small eyes.  Shooting in the desert got my boots filthy :(

Houndstooth & Breeze


I fell in love with this dress since the minute I spotted it. Even though I wasn't totally sold on the whole Houndstooth trend, I went ahead & got it because it would make for a great blog post. With that on my mind It became more & more frustrating to attempt to shoot outfit photos as the wind tried to knock me off my stilettos, my hair & lipgloss insisted on making out, and  my blouse argued that it was some type of flag.
Aside from the not-so-great facial expressions & lack of better photos, I hope you can still enjoy this post & get a real feel for how awesome this dress is.

Vintage Orange Jacket

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photosp

I've been really enjoying vintage & thrift shopping & most of it has to do with the thrill of not knowing what you can find next. I've had my share of good & bad shopping trips, but lately it has been great. I actually found this jacket in NJ when I went to visit family in October. We went to a yard sale & this woman whom collected vintage clothes had it, I got it for 5 dollars & it was the best 5 dollars I've spent in a long while.

New Year Mod


At the end of summer right around the time Semptember issues were still hot on the shelves, I was excited to get my hands on some 60's/Twiggy inspired frocks. I looked for trench dresses, chunky heels, flare trousers, time went by I shifted my focus to other trends. This red dress was my best attempt at Mod fashion months went by & it was never worn. Over the holiday I wanted to wear something a little formal but unexpected. Pairing this classic and conservative shape with some sexy over-the-knee  boots & statement jewelry made for an outfit I adored.

Downtown Chic

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

I'm lucky enough to be with a guy who supports my every wish, idea & adventure. I'm sure that even though he's heard my horrible Adele renditions in the shower he would be behind me 100% behind if I wanted to become a pop star. When I started this blog & said " You know that little spot at the base of the mountains down the road? Can we go there to take pictures of this outfit?" he didn't let out a complaining peep, however, I've always felt a little guilty to steal his time. A while ago I suggested he pick a location for blog photos & what he picked was great. He loves graffiti & downtown LV is filled with it! He gets a little "art show" & I get awesome photos. Such a great deal for the both of us!

Desert Tribe


The past few weeks I've wanting to stray from my usual shopping spots & do a little more online shopping, as well as, scouting local boutiques. I can proudly say that I didn't do any Christmas or recent shopping at F21 & Charlotte Russe. I'm sure i'll be back soon enough but for now my go-to spots are a local shop called Patty's Closet (love), Target (Surprisingly stylish)& H&M (45min away from my home). This post is the result of my very first Target shopping experiece combined with some of my wardrobe staples.
