Anthropologie Statement Necklace

2013 pastels trend, powder blue dress, how to wear cornflower, anthropologie statement necklace,Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos




As soon as I saw this dress in Francesca's I fell in love with the color. I think this blue although very pretty, it's not often seen in women's fashion,. It's so underrated & I wanted to show it some love.
As for the necklace, I just love it! Anthropologie is one of those stores, I'm still not sure about...sometimes I walk in & hate everything, others I want it all. Their prices are not the most affordable, so I only purchase something when I feel like I cannot live without. This necklace was in my sights since I saw it on their monthly catalog & once I purchased it, I felt as though I'd made the best decision of my life. 


SPANISH

Tan pronto vi este vestido en Francesca's me enamore de el color, es un color divino y delicado pero no lo vemos en la ropa de mujer muy a menudo, por eso le quise comprar y darle un poquito de cariño aquí en el blog. 
En cuanto al collar, lo compre en Anthropologie, una tienda de la cual no estoy muy convencida todavía. Es carísima y por eso decidí solo comprar piezas que me fascinen y las cuales me hacen sentir que no puedo vivir sin ellas, y este collar me hizo sentir exactamente eso.

How to Wear a Turban

how to wear a turban, turban, styling a turban, style,turban for petites,latina blogger, Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos


I've had this Turban for almost 2 years, and I now realize how little love it's received, specially on my blog. As I was preparing to shoot this post on a rainy day, I also realized that a turban is the perfect accessory for a rainy day A.K.A a bad hair day & with this in mind, I threw some fashionable goodies in my handbag, which allowed me to transform 1 outfit into 2. Hope you enjoy it!

How to Wear a Turban:
1. Turbans look great with soft waves rather than straight hair, the waves create body that flatters the face, avoiding the swimming cap look. 
2. Believe it or not, statement beauty looks fantastic with a turban. Choose either a strong lip or eye. I went for a smoky eye.
3. A turban is loud, unexpected & the opposite of a subdued/classic silhouette,therefore, juxtaposition is your best friend when styling a turban. Try a shift dress, blazer or classic slacks.  You can still win some Pantene hair products, submit your entry at the bottom of this post.




SPANISH

He tenido este turbante por aproximadamente dos años y hasta ahora me doy cuanta de la falta de cariño que le he dado, especialmente en el blog. Hace unos días cundo me estaba preparando para tomar estas fotos en un día lluvioso me di cuenta que un turbante es el accesorio perfecto para proteger tu peinado durante un día lluvioso. Así qué decidí preparar dos un outfits con un solo vestido, espero que les gusté. 

Como usar un turbante:
1. Los turbantes se ven geniales con cabello ondulando de una manera suave y delicada (como Los años 50). Las ondas crean mucha textura y enmarcan la cara, lo cual previene el look de gorra de natación. 
2. Así parezca increíble, el maquillaje fuerte va muy bien con los turbantes. Elige una de las siguientes dos opciones, un labio en un color vibrante o un ojo smoky. 
3. Los turbantes son muy llamativos por lo cual para verte chic quieres crear un balance entre tu accesorio y tu ropa. Ponte tu turbante con un vestido sencillo, con un blazer o pantalones de vestir.  Todavía tienes tiempo para ganar un premio de Pantene, entra el sorteo en la parte de abajo de este post

I Heart Ronson for JcPenney: Short Peplum Suit

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Have I rambled enough about short suits? I think I have, at least in this ocassion. Just in case that those few ramblings haven't gotten my point across, here is some photographic evidence of my love affair with short suits. I purchased this particular one from a place I've also been lusting over....JcPenney. I keep making excuses to visit the store & every time, I walk out not-empty-handed!
I think, in fact, I know that my fondness for this store has much to do with their designer collaborations, unlike other stores, their affordable designer lines are not temporary; they're a part of the JCP family. A very glamorous family if I may add, made up of names such as, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman, Mango, Nanette Lepore, Cosmpolitan, and the adorably chic, Charlotte Ronson.
I love her aesthetic. It's girly, cool,feminine, and always fresh! Her I ❤ Ronson line is all of those things rolled into very cute & super affordable pieces.



SPANISH
¿.Les he contado sobre mi amor por los trajes cortos? Creo qué sí, por lo menos en esta ocasión. Esta vez en vez de contarles, les voy a demostrar mi amor con evidencia fotográfica. Compre estas prendas en un lugar con el cual también me enamorado, me refiero a JcPenney, les cuento que en más de una ocasión he inventado excusas para ir a la tienda y por supuesto...siempre salgo con las manos llenas. 
Estoy 90% o tal vez 100% segura de que la razón tras mi cariño por esa tienda  tiene que ver con sus colaboraciones con diseñadores y marcas geniales. A diferencia de muchas marcas/tiendas, estas colaboraciones no son temporarias, puedes contar con estas divinas prendas cada vez que visitas un JcPenney.  Aquí te dejo con una lista de algunas de las marcas disponibles: Pearl de Georgina Chapman (Diseñadora de Marchesa), Mango, Nanette Lepore, Cosmopolitan y Charlotte Ronson. La estetica de Charlotte Ronson es feminina, fresca, juvenil y siempre marca tendencia. 
Su colección para JCP llamada, I ❤ Ronson tiene todas esas cualidades por precios muy accesibles. 

Shorts & Top: I ❤ Ronson via JcPenney
Shoes/Zapatos: Sam Edelman via Buffalo Exchange ($28)
Bag/Bolso: Thrift Store/Tienda de Segunda 
Bracelet/Pulsera: Charlotte Russe
Sunnies: Local Boutique

Maite Perroni & Pantene: Pro-V Smooth Collection + Giveaway

Actress, Maite Perroni has been one of my favorites & a girl crush of mine for a long time, she's so sweet,femenino & has always had this amazing rich, healthy, dark & silky hair which can be credited to her partnership with Pantene. I was thrilled to be contacted by their team & introduced to their newest line, which is used to achieve Maite's look, god knows my hair is in major need of a boost! The new collection is called, Pantene Pro-V Smooth Collection, which contains an anti-frizz technology to avoid the effects that humidity takes on your hair & keeps your style sleek & smooth for up to 72 hours. I was sent the shamppo & conditoner which I enjoyed, however, my favorite was the Shine Serum. 

Here is a little confession: I can't live without shine serum, it conceals all the damage done by heat styling & its like a full-face-of-makeup for your hair, this serum however is not just that...it's infused with all-natural Argan oil, which actually improves the conditon of your hair. I love products that combine more than one benefitm, specially at such an affordable price.

A Brief Review:
Texture: it's very light in consistency, it's a bit lighter than a styling gel & does not weight down hair.

Scent: It smells fresh & girly, I'm almost sure that all Pantene products have the signature scent.

Results: It left my hair VERY shiny & although I took these photos on a very rainy & humid day, my hair stayed glossy & smooth until the next wash.

Pros: It comes in a spray bottle, which saves you from accidents like the one I had not long ago. I spilled a $30 bottle of Moroccan oil all over my bathroom & to avoid the waste...I dragged myself all over the oiled floor!Do.not.judge.me!

In today's post not only will you be able to get Maite's new single for free but, you will also be able to enter for your chance to WIN the goodies pictured below!

SPANISH

La actriz Maite Perroni siempre me ha encantado y se me ha hecho una mujer divina. Se me hace muy dulce y femenina, sobretodo me encanta su cabello el cual es debido a Pantene, por eso me encanto recibir un email por parte de Pantene en el cual me presentaron su nueva coleccion Pantene Pro-V Smooth la cual es usada en el cabello de Maite para lograr un look sedoso y brillante.
Esta nueva coleccion contiene una tecnologia Anti-Humedad la cual mantiene tu cabello sedoso y brillante por hasta 72 horas. Tuve la oprtunidad de probar el champu y acondicionador, la verdad el producto que mas me gusto fue el Shine Serum.

Un pequena confesion: Los productos para darle brillo al cabello me fascinan, no puedo vivir sin ellos. Se me hacen como un kit completo de maquillaje para el pelo en una sola botella, lo que mas me gusto de este Shine Serum con aceite de Argan, fue el hecho de que no solo cambia la apariencia de el cabello, tambien lo repara.

Reseña
Textura: Es ligero, muy similar a un gel pero un poco memos denso. No déjà el cabello grasoso.

Olor: Huele fresco, como limpió y femenino. Creo que todos los productos de Pantene tienen la misma fragancia.

Resultados: Después de aplicar la línea Smooth, mi cabello quedo con mucho brillo y a pesar de la húmeda quedo suave hasta el día después.

Pros: Me encanta la facilidad de un spray, la botellas de aceites de brillo son tan inconvenientes que me han causado accidentes horribles! Hace no mucho tiempo derrame una botella carisima en el piso de el bano y para no gastarla...me acoste en el piso hasta que todo el pelo la absorbvio. No.me.juzgues.

En el post de hoy puedes bajar la nueva cancion de Maite gratis, aqui! pero tambien tienes la oportunidad de GANAR un paquete de Pantene como el de la foto arriba.

 photo image_zps7bceadf1.jpg


Hey Loves,
As I mentioned on a previous post I was invited to a fabulous luncheon hosted by Neiman Marcus during which, I was treated to a trend report/fashion show displaying all of the strongest trends for Fall. All the looks we're styled with beautiful designer pieces available at Neiman Marcus, I photographed all of my favorite pieces in hopes of showing you the coolest & strongest trends we'll be seeing in the upcoming season .




SPANISH

Hola Amorcitos, 
En el post anterior  les conté sobre un evento al cual atendí organizado por Neiman Marcus, durante este evento vi un desfile demostrando las Tendencias de moda más fuertes de Otoño 2013. Todos los looks estaban divinos y compuestos por prendas espectaculares, creadas por marcas y diseñadores como, Óscar de la Renta, Alice And Olivia, Valention, etc...
Tome fotos de mis looks favoritos y representativos de las mejores tendencias para la temporada entrante.

The Vibe: Rocker Chic
Unconventional leather pieces balanced with very feminine polished silhouettes,a leather pencil skirt topped with a grandpa cardi is a fail-proof outfit.
*Prendas en cuero distintas a las convencionales, olvídate de la chaqueta de cuero! Ponte una falda o vestido de cuero con un sweater ennn estilo clásico, como de abuelo.

 photo image_zps449fe9f9.jpg

The Color: Reds & Purples
This season, treat all hues of red & violet as your main palette & neutral
*Durante esta temporada, trata los tonos rojos y violetas como tu color principal.

The Texture: Leather & Lace
This fall, edgy texture will be your bread and butter. Leather in lace separates or times that combine both are definite must buy.
*Durante este otono, Las texturas con vibras sensuales y femeninas como el cuero y encaje deben estar en tu armario.

The Bag: Fun-size
This seasons is all about the mini-cross-body. Brands such as,Chanel & Balenciaga resized their most popular classics into Pettitte versions.
*El bolso mas popular de la temporada será la versión mini de los clásicos que ya conocemos, como el Chanel Clasicc Flap Mini.

The Shoe: Pointed Toe Single Sole
The platform is on its way out! Single sole pointed toe pumps are the shoe of Fall 2013, although platform bootie will make some big appearances.
*Los zapatos con plataforma están out! Las suelas sencillas y zapatos puntudos serán el zapato más popular. Los botines son el único tipo de zapato que viene con platforma.

The Accesory: Statement Necklace
The Statement necklace is varied through the years, going from huge to edgy & even turning into a jeweled collar, however, the original hardware & gem statement is the "it piece" of Autumn 2013.
*los collares grandes/statement han sido populares durante mucho tiempo pero hemos visto diferentes variaciones, este Otoño, el original de metal esta de vuelta.
