At peace with nature


I haven't posted any outfits lately but I have been taking a lot of outfit photos that I will be sharing with you soon.
This is different for me, lately style has been a little edgier but this day was especially hot. I had the chartreuse tunic (which I adore). It was perfect. The weather in Florida is killing me, the humid heat is sometimes unbearable in the afternoon.
So, all I can do is wear really simple pieces and light makeup.
I was meeting my friend for lunch by the Pier, we found this shady spot and it was perfect.

Expect a lot of denim shorts, skirts and dresses from me for a while, I can't wear blazers or jackets without sweating bullets.
My nails are very summery, reminds me of a smoothie.
Now I want a cold strawberry smoothie, so I am leaving.

Tunic: Vintage

Skirt: Max Rave for Max Azria

Bag: DVF (so tiny, yet I love it)

Bracelet: African (a gift from my aunt)

Earrings: Forever21 (I broke the chains to make them dangle)

Belt: Pierre Cardin (sooo cute, love the details)

Bye darlings,

That header belongs to Net a Porter but I can't top it. Alexander the great. That says it all; for a cutting edge designer, who is reinventing convention style, he is so sweet! (watch the video) Sometimes geniuses can be intimidating but not him, I just wanted to look at him straight in the eyes and yell:

"I love you, I love you, I love everything you make. I feel like a 7 year old after eating a chocolate bar filled with caramel - when I see your clothes!"

Alexander Wang makes me feel like a twilight fan sighting Robert Pattison.

I Shrieked when I saw this, and I got a couple of awkward glances.

My friend Beryl became a fan when she saw this video, she wants to walk on his runway soon; I think she will, she is determined (Beryl is an amazon and a really talented model, I will post some pictures of her soon).

Check him out as he gives awesome style advice and how to channel your inner "Cool". It is very likely that you will learn something new; I have!

Hope you love it as much as I do!

bye darlings,

falling for fall

OK, this is my last post about fall for a while, I ll try.
I have always thought of myself as a summer child but this summer, I am looking forward to fall.
So, I am want to share with you some fall trends that can be modified for summer.

Chloe Sevigny. I love her, her style is and as always been young, edgy, down to earth, effortless, cool and innovative.
She is very on-trend in this picture. (love the leopard print) Socks, sky high wedges, cropped sweater and nice fitting denim shorts. What I love the most about this outfit - it works for summer, so yay!
that makes me very happy.

When I think of cool and effortless, I think of Rag and Bone immediately. Does it get any more effortlessly chic than a  pair of lace up boots, tucked in sweat pants and a cropped sweater, but for summer, skip the sweater for a floaty, breezy, cropped, tank top.

*outfit to be posted*
The icing on the cake: her hair! The I- just- rolled out of bed - naturally amazing- feel. Now I am missing the days that I had longer hair.

Versace. The color of her bag and currently in the color of my nails. It is such a happy, bright, and warm color. Why wait till fall? I can't think of anything more summery.

Chartreuse shoes. Mixed print from Balenciaga; how daring do her eyes look? love it!

Also from Balenciaga. Something I would love to recreate: bright colors and neutrals. Chartreuse shirt, layered with a neutral crochet sweater.

That is all for now,
my next post will be about summer pieces/outfits that I can't live without,
I will post pictures later this week.

Dear Santa ( I know it's july)

Dear Santa,

I know it's July but I just wanted to give you a head start on my list this year. It's only fair, I am a reasonable person, therefore, I don't think you should be rushed. Actually if you give me my presents now, I won't be whiny in December. I promise.

Oh Miu Miu

they are sold out everywhere, I have been searching for weeks (and I am running short on cash now :()

I just saw Balmain's fall rtw 2010 show and my reaction was:
G....holy shit I want those dresses (pardon my french Santa but those dresses are amazing)

I expect this dress to be on the red carpet soon.

Bright colors from Miu Miu Resort 2011(love the eye makeup)

And finally,
just a few things from topshop
A/W 2010

those shoes, that hat and pants!

Is this asking for too much Santa?

I can't wait till fall! I want to wear knee high socks now! I just ordered a pair from nasty gal ( maybe I can rock them with a short floral dress and combat boots for summer, maybe... I will keep you posted on that, I will take pictures of the outfit immediately my socks arrive).

I am loving cropped tops these days, they are sweat-proof (I live in Florida... hot!) They are the best way to beat the heat wave. Paired with body-con high waisted skirts or flowy pants..and lotsa arm jewelry (optional)...*outfit to be posted.

They will also be perfect for layering for fall.

I love the appeal to youthful enthusiasm (cropped tops, knee highs, bandeau tops, plaid skirts, ankle socks..notice a theme)

outfits inspired by the shows coming soon!
