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!
Hola peeps! Happy Friday to you all! Strangely enough the weather has been cool for August. Usually we are still sweltering on the subway platform but I guess we have to face the fact that fall is around the corner :-( Today’s sass—Canadian Tuxedo is perfect for the transitioning weather. I live for denim on denim paired with neutral colors; this is a great look for a chill weekend out with friends. Will you give it a try? Please share if you do, enjoy!
Hola! Today is the 2nd day of NYFW and my fave show today was Rebecca Minkoff **no shocker here**. If you follow this site then you know that I am a big fan of RM and this collection did not disappoint. Chunky knits, bright colors, prints, and wild patterns ruled the runway! I also love that she also had a live band which kept the mood upbeat and moving. Take a peek and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!
Hola peeps! It’s that time of year again—Rebecca Minkoff sample sale! If you are a follower of SNC then you know just how much I adore all things that she designs. The handbags are beautifully crafted, the clothing/shoes are always on trend yet timeless and now jewelry has been added to her roster. I mean what’s not to love! So will you be hitting up the sample sale next week for a new bag? I just may see you there
Hola! Happy Friday! Today’s sass features none other than the “Good Girl” herself—Rihanna in Studs gone WILD. I have a love/sometimes dislike thing with her personal style. A few years back she was always on point but as of late she has been missing the mark to me. Although there are times when I admire her f— it attitude and she does what she wants in fashion that is. The studded denim shorts and cropped top scream RiRi to me; to toughen the look add combat boots and a Alexander McQueen cross body bag both with studs of course. To block the paps…why not throw some shade with these fab Rebecca Minkoff sunnies—POW! Enjoy your weekend!
Hola! I squealed with excitement when I purchased these babies for only $29! Yes, you read that correctly as I couldn’t believe it myself. These Prada sandals valued retail price is $625 big ones *insane*! I scored this deal from Bluefly; they were having a crazy sale where everything was only 29 bucks. The taupe color makes them very practical and wearable with many colors/patterns. I envision wearing these with a bright Coral pedi this summer.
I also purchased a pair of Rebecca Minkoff metallic snake embossed sandals, Camilla Skovgaard black stilettos, and a Beirn grey snakeskin tote. My grand total was less than $125….mind blowing deals! Want to score big too, go here to get on their mailing list. Happy Shopping!
Hola peeps! Well we are on the third day of fashion week but we must review Day 2. My fave designer pick is Rebecca Minkoff! If you frequent this site you know that we are HUGE fans. Her Fall 2012 collection didn’t disappoint as usual—rich color tones, python skins, and sophisticated silhouettes were strutted down the runway all while Theophilis London rocked the fashion crowd. RM is always on point for the modern city girl on the go. Love Love! Check out the vid…
Hola peeps! Tuesdays are pretty much a blah day of the week so I thought that I would spice it up with this set—Fashion Rebel. This is my style inspiration of the day. A little kick ass with a touch of sophisticated hipster all rolled into one. Perfect in my book…now I need to head on over to Top Shop quick for those velvet shorts!
