Modern Day Pink Lady

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the tulle skirt on this dress was, Olivia Newton John in Grease, I remembered the elgant way she drapped her jacket over those feminine midi length dresses. I love finding a piece that inmediately incites feelings or isnpiration, those are the ones that make for memorable outfits, another thing I keep in mind when shopping is...well, It's three things. When shopping there are three criterias I think everyone should have, you want to be a smart, chic, and budget conscious shopper, the best way to become that is to visualize. Visualizing the piece you're purchasing in as many ways possible keeping the itmes already in your wardobe in mind guaratees no "shopper's guilt".

Tan pronto vi la falda de tulle de este vestido, Olivia Newton John en la pelicula Grease se me vino a la mente, especificamente la manera en la cual se ponía su chaqueta sobre los hombros por encima de sus vestidos femeninos y muy característicos de la epoca. Me encanta encontrar prendas que inciten emociones o inspiración tan pronto las encuentras, se me hace que son las prendas que conforman las pintas mas memorables, otra de las cualidades que tengo en mente cuando compro una prenda nueva es...bueno en verdad son tres. Creo que para hacer buenas compras tienes que ser inteligente, chic y conciente de tu presupuesto, la mejor manera de lograr estast tres cosas es, visualizar. Visualizar la prenda que quieres comprar de toda manera posible, teniendo en mente los accesorios y ropa que ya hacen parte de tu armario. Si sigues estos tips, no te vas a sentir culpable por haber gastado.

Queen of California: A Road Trip

 photo image_zps755bbd20.jpg

I was lucky enough to have family visiting from New Jersey for two weeks; as California is a few hours away, we decided to have a Summer road trip & hit some of Los Angeles best sights, as well as, Disneyland (post coming soon). Unfortunately , the Mr. could not join us since the Air Force is not the type of job you can just "call out" of. I hope we'll be able to have a little Cali couple's time soon.

About the Outfit: I wanted to make sure my outfit was comfortable & versatile, which I think is the formula to apply yourself to when packing for a vacation. You never know where you'll end up & it's great to have your outfit transtion from place to place & amongst different activities seamlessly.
I was mindful of the lenghty walks & hours under the sun that vacations often entail, which is why I opted for neutral colored flat shoes & a big hat to protect what I like to call "my future wrinkles".


Tuve la fortuna de tener a mi familia de visita por dos semanas, siendo que California queda a solo unas pocas horas decidimos hacer el viaje.Visitiamos los mejores puntos turisticos en Los Angeles y por supesto Disneyland (Pondré el post de Disney pronto). deasfortunadamente, el Mr. no puedo acompañarnos por cuestiones de trabajo, ojalá pronto podamos visitar juntos.

Sobre mi Pinta:
Mis prioridades con este outfit fueron la comodidad y versatilidad, lo cual yo creo es la formula perfecta cuando de empacar se trata. Cuando estas de viaje no tienes idea donde te lleva el día, es excelente tener pintas que te lleven de una actividad a otra sin ningún problema. Tuve en cuenta las largas caminatas y horas extenuantes que pasas bajo el sol , por lo cual opte por zapatos planos y un sombrero grande para proteger "mis futuras arrugas".

One of the hottest trends this summer & one that is strongly transitioning into fall is, The '90s Comeback. If you're wondering what this trend looks like, I can almost guarantee you've already seen it all over the beach, amusement parks or better yet,Tumblr. I've personally seen the trend emulated by celebrities and real girls alike; I created this post in hopes of inspiring you to give this trend a try, I've come up with some tips to help you look super cool in your acid was cut-offs.

 The look you're going for is a well balanced mix between the decades most influential Hip-Hop icons & the "It Girl" of the 1990s, Kelly Kapowski. You want your ensemble to have a bit of unintentional sexy & a lot of urban edge.

If  you're still wondering how to pull this look off, worry not! Check out the kit below, which includes a collection of all the essential '90s chic items.

The Shorts
You must have. A pair of vintage wash denim cut-offs, DIY them for a touch of Punk. (mid drift bearing ones for extra credit) Great choice    really cool pair

The Top
A mid drift bearing top was the staple of the '90s but, the bustier was definitely the trendiest item & it has made a major comeback, go find yourself a bustier that Edward James Olmos' rendition of Mr. Quintanilla would certainly hate. Love this one!

The Eyes
 A pair of round Sunnies with gold metal detailing was seen on the decades most popular fashion icons & you will find lots of cute variations in all fashion retailers. Try these   Splurge on these.

The Final Touches
  • A great leather back pack gives your look authenticity. You can find awesome ones at vintage or thrift shops.
  • A flat brimmed snap back, do I need to justify it? They're just cool!
  • Bright colored high top sneakers are comdy, cool & always trendy, I am lusting over these 
  • The Chain RUN DMC, anyone? The chunkier louder, the better. HRH Collection has lots of chic variations, check them out.
