Hola! Gorgeous, artistic, soulful, singer, stylish and the new face of Givenchy 2014 Spring campaign are just a few adjectives that are linked to today’s muse—Erykah Badu. There is nothing else to say but to scroll down and observe the many sides of Ms. Badu. Enjoy!
Hola peeps! Today I’m digging the much-anticipated collaboration between Isabel Marant and H&M. It officially drops tomorrow Nov. 14th although they did have a special press shopping day yesterday (no I didn’t get an invite womp!). If you plan to hit up the store be prepared to wait in line and brave the crowds because I am sure that it will be insanity! However if you can’t tolerate that (I can’t) charge up your laptop, iPad or smartphone and shop online starting at 12 pm. To get you started I created this set with some key pieces from the collection which I am sure to go quick. Happy Shopping!
Hola! Earlier this week I was lucky enough to attend Styled for Fall: Fossil at VOGUE. I must admit I squealed at the thought of going to the Vogue offices (so Carrie Bradshaw-ish)! As soon as I walked in I was warmly greeted and noticed the wonderful display of handbags and accessories. There were pops of color, leopard print and flashes of metallic! Fossil is definitely becoming more fashion forward which is a great move for the brand.
Loving these colors of the Sydney Satchel, Memoir Novella Flap, Memoir Haircalf Diary Clutch and Sydney Shopper.
We were getting schooled on the functionality of each bag.
This was one of my faves—Memoir Biography Satchel!
The accessories didn’t disappoint either—Chelsey-silver and Florence Rose Gold watches.
After the presentation we were able to use the clothing they pulled from the VOGUE closet and style them with Fossil accessories. The challenge was: Seeing Spots-accessorize with animal prints, Stack in Style-mix and match bracelets and Heat Things Up-add bold warm hues to your wardrobe. Take a peek at the look I styled and let me know what you think.
I opted for a sophisticated black and white ensemble paired with the cheetah print Memoir Biography Satchel, stacked bracelets and Georgia Coral Leather watch.
It’s all in the details!
This was such a fun event! I wish much more success to Fossil and look forward to attending more events with VOGUE! If you are yearning for more check out Instagram and Twitter using these hashtags #FossilStyle and #FossilatVOGUE. Enjoy!

Hola! Nolcha Fashion Week was just as fab as ever and one of my favorite designers was Maita Marimo. The 29 year old hails from Zimbabwe where she attended school for interior design but eventually became a self-taught fashion designer. In 2012 she was voted Zimbabwe’s Fashion Week Designer of the year. Maita describes her signature style as “Classic chic with a modern edge”. Her collection is most definitely a representation of that with intricate details like lace, ruffles and pleats. Take a peek and enjoy!

Hola peeps! Happy Friday—we made it through another NYFW! While my work is never done *I’m still working on reviews* I couldn’t forget today’s sass—Ode to 3.1 Phillip Lim. His stellar RTW Spring 2014 show and upcoming Target collaboration (debuting on Sept. 15th) has been the talk of fashion week. I styled this set with a bit of old and new 3.1 Phillip Lim pieces. Take a peek and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!

Hola peeps! No matter how much I miss being on vacation, I truly missed blogging and you guys! Well, enough on that later because New York Fashion Week is here! First up is one of my fave designers—Rebecca Minkoff. Let’s dive right in shall we!
The show was very vibrant and festive just like the clothing that came down the runway. There was a huge nod to latin culture with embroidery, lace and eyelet details. The models wore their hair in milkmaid braids which reminded me of Freida Kahlo.
The juxtaposition of soft fabrics and sporty silhouettes were perfect. This yellow lace skirt with the mesh baseball/bomber style jacket is right up my alley! The accessories were fab as well—especially the tasselled pumps and cutout lace-up sandals.
Watch the complete show below and enjoy the funky sounds of singer Janelle Monàe. Enjoy!
