NYFW—Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2015

Hola peeps!  Day 2 of NYFW is done however I must showcase one of my fave designers- Rebecca Minkoff (of course).  Based on her collection it looks like spring is going to be filled with a light color palette, big sun hats and tons of handbags embellished with tassels!  I have always adored her and the brand it truly is the epitome of a cool Cali girl with a twist of NY spice.  Take a peek and the run of the show and let me know your thoughts.  Oh and don’t forget you watch the shows via live stream hereEnjoy!

Friday Sass—I Feel Pretty

Hola!  Happy Friday!  The sun has been shining and the temps are a tad bit warmer; I think that it is safe to say that spring has finally sprung!  On that note today’s sass—I Feel Pretty highlights a look that is perfect for the season.  I love this Tory Burch lace frock paired with chunky platform sandals and offset with a Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag in the Pantone color of the season.  Don’t forget simple accessories and a scent that is divine then you are good to go!  Put on your prettiest outfit and go enjoy your weekend peeps!

Friday Sass—Laid-Back Glam

Hola!  Happy Friday!  Today’s sass Laid-Back Glam is exactly what I am feeling right now.  The holidays are over but my urge to wear something with high shine (like this metallic skirt) is still here.  However I do want to be comfy and warm so when paired with this thick H&M sweater—I get a little bit of both within this ‘fit.  At first glance it may seem to clash but I think that the two compliment each other; similar color undertones, patent bow pumps and a bright red lippy says here I am!

So what do you think of today’s sass? Would you wear or wouldn’t dare? Do tell!

NYFW-Rebecca Minkoff SS 2014

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!


Friday Sass—Canadian Tuxedo

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!
