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.

WWDMAGIC Brand Love: Isabella Rose Taylor

wwdmagic.


WWDMAGIC had a lot to offer, so many wonderful brands and pieces. Every booth filled with little treasures, however, as much as I loved all those exhibitors, I only fell IN love with one...Isabella Rose Taylor.
I have this weird quirk, I can like a brand, movie or celeb but I will never be completely sold on them until I learn their back story. I got a chance to meet the whole team behind Isabella Rose Taylor, including Isabella herself and well, it sealed the deal!

Isabella is 12!!!! yes, as in she's only been on this earth for 12 years and has managed to have a better sense of style, design, art, and work ethic that the majority of the population. I spoke to her and she is so passionate, lovely, and good at what she does. I loved all her pieces and today I want to share my favorites with you, along with a little interview.


SPANISH
WWDMAGIC tuvo mucho que ofrecer y por supuesto todo genial. Cada quiosco exhibió sus tesoros los cuales me gustaron pero en cuanto a ropa se trata, me ENAMORE de Isabella Rose Taylor
Me encanta conocer la historia y ocurrencias tras bastidores de las marcas que me gustan, la historia de IRT es divina, después de hablar con su equipo el cual incluye a su padre, he decidido que esta marca es una de mis favoritas.
Pues les cuento que Isabella, la diseñadora tiñe 12 añitos...si sólo 12 años de existencia. A su temprana edad cuenta con una creatividad increíble, es una artista, es apasionada por sus creaciones y muy trabajadora.
Aquí les dejo mis prendas favoritas! 

wwdmagic,

This fringe leather vest and crochet pants were my favorite pieces. The vest, I am obsessed with!
Isabella Rose Taylor offers a great array of fashionable pieces, I loved that their collection is very much for "the every girl" you can find pieces for every aspect of your life, mix and match, and seamlessly transition from occasion and season to the next.


Este chaleco de flecos de cuero y pantalón de crochet fueron mis prendas favoritas.
A pesar de su temprana edad, Isabella diseña prendas para toda mujer. Ropa que puede ser tu acompañante para cualquier ocasión o temporada.

TV Segment: Rent the Runway Academy Awards Trend Report




I do this for fun, it's something I am passionate about and suddenly, unexpectedly, and fortunately has turned into something more, something that grants me unbelievable opportunities. I mean truly unbelievable, such a lovely pair of women deeming me worthy of the label, fashion model.
Last Monday, thanks to Rent The Runway and Laura of LollieShopping, I got to model a dress inspired by the trends seen on the Oscar's red carpet during the local ABC morning news. Here are some photos of what I wore and some behind the scenes photos.

SPANISH
Yo empeze este blog y continuo con el por que me gusta, porque es importante para mi pero de repente y afortunadamente se ha convertido en algo mas que un pasatiempo. Este blog me ha dado la oportunidades increibles, tan increibles tener la  oportunidad de ser modelo; gracias a dos mujeres super generosas y especiales pude ser modelo para Rent the Runway en el noticiero de la manana del canal ABC de Las Vegas. Gracias a Laura escritora de LollieShopping por darme esta oportunidad.



I got to into the Rent The Runway showroom in The Cosmopolitan hotel and pick my own dress, I tried on lots of of beautiful frocks, and of course took a whole lot of selfies.
P.S. How cute are the RTR dressing rooms?

Tuve la oportunidad de ir al showroom de Rent the Runway y eligir mi vestido, me prove varios divinos. Obviamente me tome unas selfies y me enamore de los vestidores.

Spring 2014 Trends: Midi Skirt

 photo image_zpsd9b5316d.jpg

Another day, a different post, a different trend. Today I am talking about midi skirts, one of my favorite trends of all time, it encompasses so many fashionable necessities. It is feminine, chic, cool and most certainly a statement piece. I have to admit, I originally thought I would not be able to rock this trend due to my height, I decided to give it a chance and I am never going back. I feel so ethereal and womanly in a midi circle skirt.
For some inspo on how to style a midi skirt, visit my Tumblr (right here)

SPANISH
Otro dia, un post distinto y continuo hablando de tendecias. Hoy les voy a hablar de la falda midi, es una de mis tendencia favoritas. Estas faldas son femeninas, chic y atrevidas, sobretodo son prendas que llaman la atencion. Tengo que admitirles que pense que era imposible ponerme una falda tan larga pero tan pronto me di la oportunidad de medirme una...me enamore.
Me siento tan mujer y delicada en esta tendencia.

How to Wear a Pant Suit (Tips for Petites and All)


express

The pant suit has and will continue to be one of the hottest trends for 2014, to some of you working gals, a pant suit is already an essential but this is a different type of pant suit; It's not navy or black, it's not necessarily made up of a jacket and slacks. This suit is fun, trendy, eye-catching, and exciting. I can go on and on about this trend, instead you could check out my Pant Suit inspiration board HERE...you're welcome!

The most exciting factor of this new take on suits is undoubtedly the array of prints, which can be a bit challenging to wear, so here are some tips to pull off your printed separates or whatever pant suit you're currently coveting.


  • Take a tip from the boys: Every man knows that the best way to wear a suit is to have it tailored, fortunately for us ladies, most suit separates already come with stitching and patterns suitable for female curves. Find a blazer that takes in at the waist and pants that hug your shape (hug, not suffocate)
  • Color and Print: Go for neutral or dark monochromatic palettes. If you're rocking a large print, make sure it lays on a dark background (i.e. Pink flowers on a navy canvas). A safe bet is to go for delicate prints in neutral colors, such as black and white polka dot.
  • ALWAYS wear with heels, unless you're over 5'7" then you can rock that Grace Kelly weekend crop pants look. 
  • Accessories: Pair with ultra feminine details to downplay the menswear factor. Think statement necklaces and colorful lips.
  • If your suit is bright, pair it with nudes or whites. 

SPANISH

Una de las tendecias con más furor de este año 2014 ha sido y seguira siendo esa de el conjunto/traje de pantalon para mujeres. Pero este traje no es de cortes o colores antiquados. Estos trajes son de estampados y cortes super chic. La verdad que puedo hablarles hasta el cansancio sobre estos trajes pero mejor les muestro mi board de trajes en Pinterest AQUI
Si tienes dudas o te sientes un poco insegura al usar este tipo de traje, aqui te dejo unos consejitos.
  • Acceptale un consejito a los chicos: Todo hombre sabe que la mejor manera de usar un traje es llevandolo a una modista antes de ponertelo. Afortunadamente, la mayoria de los trajes de mujer ya vienen adaptados a las curvas femeninas, entonces busca un blazer tallado a la cintura y que abraze tus piernas (abraze no ahogue) 
  • Opta for colores y estampados neutrales o monocromos. Si quieres llevar un estampado de colores alegres, fijate que el estampado este en un fondo neutral ( flores fucsias en fondo negro). La manera de garantizar que el estampado sea alagador es optar por estampados pequenos y neutrales (lunares negros o blancos)
  • Siempre ponte tacones!
  • Usa accesorios super femeninos para disminuir el efecto masculino de el traje. Ponte un collar llamativo o colorete de colores vivos. 
  • Si tu traje es de un color fuerte, pontelo con prendas color piel.
