Hola peeps! I hope that you had a great weekend! H&M has tapped gorgeous model Joan Smalls to be the face of their new summer campaign—Romantic Edge. It was styled with flowers and soft hues which creates a romantic setting to show off the clothing. Lace, black and white with subtle doses of faux leather all blends perfectly in this lookbook. Ms. Smalls is surely summertime fine! Take a peek and let me know your thoughts.
Hola! What a week it has been…Happy Friday! Today’s sass reflects my 60ish mood perfectly. This weather has me in a slight funk so I am not feeling bright colors yet I do want to be chic and comfy; therefore this look is exactly what I would be wearing. Take a peek and let me know your thoughts. Are you feeling Mod Chic today? Do tell.
Hola peeps! There is no hiding it…I am a product junkie! You name it I have probably tried it… whether it is a gel, cream, pudding, butter, custard and the list goes on. I get excited when a new item is released and always run out to buy it. Well, I am putting the brakes on that and returning back to the basics. There is no doubt that my hair is at it’s best when I use gel. I know some people think that gel is sticky, provides build-up and leaves the hair hard but not me; I always get a soft hold, shine and great curl definition. I think that the trick is the application and brand that is used. See the difference in the pics below.
This is after I washed and conditioned my hair. I am not sure what brand I used but this is definitely the result of a cream. Semi-shiny, not as defined, slightly frizzy and kind of limp looking to me. After my hair is dry it is always bigger (which is fine) but there is not much hold (I don’t like that).
This is the result of gel (Eco-Styler Olive Oil) that was shingled through my hair. The main difference is high shine, popping curls and the hold is unbelievable! Frizz is also limited when I use gel…love!
Another reason why I like gel is because it sets my hair for a few days. I can apply it and not add any additional product for the next 3 days! All I do is refresh daily with water, fluff and I am good to go. If I style my hair with a pudding, cream or butter I always have to reapply and restyle the next day (can’t stand that). Now that you have seen and read what works best for me, why not share your story! What do you like and why?
Hola peeps! The last few years H&M has been giving us plenty of designer collaborations to salivate over and this fall will be no different. Isabel Marant is set to launch must-have pieces/accessories for women, teen girls and for the first time a men’s collection! The pieces will be available on November 14, 2013 in 250 stores worldwide and online. Take a peek at the video for more deets. I can’t wait! Can you…thoughts?
Hola! Today’s sass comes to you with a fashion forward twist and Zoe Saldana. This off-the shoulder Kenzo dress would look great on her petite frame and paired with Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 patent-leather pumps…instant perfection! Re-create this look for a night out on the town with your boo. Have a great weekend peeps!
Hola! Happy Friday! We all remember how shoe-crazy Carrie Bradshaw was on SATC, she loved her Manolos. Well it is only befitting that Sarah Jessica Parker team up with the famed designer to create her own shoe line perfectly named—SJP. Yippy! The pumps and flats (a little less extravagant than Carrie’s collection) will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom early next year and will be priced between $200-$300.
It doesn’t end there, Sarah Jessica and George Malkemus, the CEO of Manolo Blahnik will also be launching a line of handbags and trench coats. The bags will sell at under $700. This is what she told Vogue about the collection:
“We’re putting new colors together that people don’t typically do, just beautiful combinations that you wish existed in your closet,” Parker told Vogue.com.
I don’t think that this is a handbag from her collection but it surely is cute with the personalized monogram.
Are you as excited as we are? I can’t wait to see the collection. Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/fashion/sarah-jessica-parker-launching-shoe-line-article-1.1365997#ixzz2VYNa582L

Hola! New York City was the place to be on Monday night as all the celebs, models and designers were out for the CFDA Awards. Here are a few of our best-dressed of the glamorous night. Take a peek and tell us who’s your pick of best dressed!
Nicole Richie looked like a golden goddess in a foil Marc Jacobs dress. This look fits her petite frame perfectly and is slightly sexy with a bit of side boob. Hotness!
Sofia Vergara served up va va voom as usual in a green (my fave color) Herve L Leroux deep plunge dress. I adore the Lorraine Schwartz jewels that she paired with it. Simply stunning!
Joan Smalls looked like an angel wearing a white dress with lace pants by Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. Although I wish she wore different shoes, she still looked gorgeous!
Kerry Washington shined bright like the sun in a yellow Jason Wu gown and Lanvin clutch. Her makeup was underwhelming but she gets our vote for color alone!
