Happy Holidays fellow readers! My favorite time of the year has finally begun, and I am so excited to share with you all the looks that make this season so great. It might not be cold enough in Puerto Rico to wear chic coats or play with a lot of layering, but there are still all the events that require awesome fashion since we do have an exaggerated amount of celebrations here. Today, I am showing a work look that can also be great for one of these events and also uses the most popular color of this season which is burgundy. The star of this look is definitely the burgundy skirt with laser cut details, which I recently bought a long with a few new items you’ve seen in my previous looks at T.J. Max. Pencil skirts and peplum tops are a great combination, and I made this pair even better by using a top from Charlotte Russe with laser cut details as well. Finally I had to accessorize with my Shoedazzle burgundy beauties, and my Aldo Miyata bag. Oh and I almost forgot, this look would not be complete without a pair of dark lips, which is also an accessory that is very in this season. I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend, who wouldn’t with all the good food and all the shopping right? Well, that was my case, and I can’t wait to show everything I got. For now, you can get some holiday fashion inspiration with this look, enjoy!
If you have been overwhelmed by all the tartan that has been showing up on the street style scene, this look is not for you, but if you’re feeling that Holiday spirit and you have been dying for a casual look that goes with it, then yes this is for you. I wore this look to see Thor 2 with Texi last week, which was great. I wore a new tartan shirt I bought recently at T.J. Max a long with my vintage high waisted denim shorts from Ouna’s Closet. The other new piece here, which you saw in my look “Make it short” is the red purse from Aldo. Finally, to complete the look I wore my studded ankle boots from Zara, only this time I decided to try a trend I’ve been seeing around, which is wearing ankle boots with ankle-dress socks. The pair I’m wearing is actually for men, but I think I pulled it off. Now I just need to get some gray ones that might look even better, what do you think? I would love to see what thoughts you have on this trend, you can comment here or go to my facebook page. Don’t forget to follow on Bloglovin’, Instagram, and Twitter too!
As you may already know, this Friday Novemeber 22nd was my 21st birthday. I guess you can say I’m an adult now that I am able to drink in cruise ships and in the U.S., but besides the change in my hair, I feel almost exactly the same. I’m not that surprised, since every birthday I feel like I will go through some life changing event, and the reality is that I always remain the same person. Don’t get me wrong, some changes have happened, but they’re not overnight. Now, without further a do, I present to you my official birthday look, even though I actually wore it the day before to celebrate with my parents and Texi at an amazing restaurant called 1919 in the Vanderbilt Hotel at Condado. I was wearing a Zara top with quilted leather shoulders that have a Star Trek feeling, but to me it was more of a badass futuristic biker feeling. I paired it with the Bebe pencil skirt that you saw on my Tartan-tastic look, and the new lace up heels I got at Charlotte Russe. I also used my Blanca purse from Shoedazzle, which is always a good choice. Here you can see the subtle ombré I mentioned in my last post, which I bet is going to be very trendy right now. I decided this was my official birthday look since the rest of the weekend I was dressed down relaxing at the beach house with my friends. It was an amazing weekend, and I am so happy I was able to share this with so many great people. Next up is the celebration with my whole family at Thanksgiving.
Surprise! This is the change I was referring to on my last post. I had decided for my birthday to make a bold change, and not only does it look more chic but hopefully it will restore my hair, which was becoming weak and unhealthy. You can’t see it here, but I added a subtle ombré to the new cut since I had gotten rid of the one I had, and I can’t wait to show it off here. This look you see here is what I wore last Saturday, which was the day I actually made the hair change. I was wearing a very cute lipstick print top and striped sweater from T.J. Max I recently got, along with a pair of jeggings from American Eagle Outfitters, Payless red pumps, and an amazing red purse I bought that very same day from Aldo on sale. To finish the look I obviously had to match with red lips, and the hair was already perfectly styled. Later that night I went out with Texi and got some very much needed beers. It was very good day, now all I need is an even more amazing birthday, which is tomorrow. Enjoy!
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I made a big change in my look, but you're not seeing that change here. The reason I'm letting you know is because this might be the last look were you'll see me like this, and although I am gonna miss it, it really was time for change. Anyway, this week is my 21st birthday and I say week because I celebrate the whole 7 days. I can't believe how quickly time has passed, I guess that's why I named this look this way. I wore this to work, even though it might not look like your typical work outfit. I wanted to try something very trendy right now, which is dark florals and mixing tartan with other prints. This combo was perfect thanks to all the colors on my Material Girl skirt. I was able to play with the purple, the pink, and even the olive green in the tartan top from Ann Taylor by adding a jacket from Charlotte Russe that definitely did the trick. Finally I used my trusty studded ankle boots from Zara to complete this look. These pictures were taken by another coworker of mine and I thank her so much for them. Enjoy!
Hello again fellow readers. Today I'm sharing with you yet another work look, only this one is a little edgier since this was on a casual Friday. People take advantage of casual Fridays to wear jeans, but I chose to wear these awesome pleather pants from Forever 21, along with a chambray button down from PacSun under an Old Navy sweater I got recently, and these awesome shoes, which are also new from Charlotte Russe. This will be a quick post today, but I hope you still enjoy it.
Here's another work look from last week. This was on one of those days in which I had no idea what to wear. All I knew was that I wanted to wear a dress so I dug this one out of my mother's closet. I added the sweater mainly so I would not freeze to death in the office, but it also made this dress look a little younger for me. I went for an almost monochromatic look in beige, using this nice pair of pointed toe pumps, and the most perfect Céline inspired bag from Shoedazzle. These pictures were taken by my friend and coworker Eduardo, and there's another look he took that I think you are all going to like. Until the next one, enjoy!
Yes I named this look after the most annoying and popular song of the moment. Even thought it's annoying it is a fun song just like this sweater from Old Navy, which matched perfectly with a fuchsia button down shirt I had. Wearing shirts under sweaters is a fall trend even Puerto Ricans cannot deny in spite of the warm weather all year long. That's the advantage of working in a cold office. To make this look even more fun I paired the sweater with a pair of polka dots pants and pointed toe pumps from Charlotte Russe. I went even farther to match the sweater by wearing a pair of cat eye sunglasses from Forever 21 too. Obviously the main piece here is this fox sweater, which I have noticed a few people around the office have it and it practically sold out from Old Navy. I usually don't like to buy pieces that are too on trend (if more than one person I know has it or even a stranger), but I also like the challenge of styling it better than others. I do believe I succeeded in styling this piece, since I got quite a few compliments and the I was asked the newly famous question, and of course, I answered "ring ding ding ding ding di ding..." (you might know the rest)
Tartan is everywhere this fall, so of course I could not help getting myself this lovely top from Ann Taylor, which already matched perfectly with a few items in my closet. One of those items is the statement necklace I recently bought at Lola and wore for my PRHFW look here, and you will probably see it in a lot more looks. Another item already in my closet is the most perfect pencil skirt from Bebe, which I have used a million times, but this would be the first time I show it here. Finally, I could not wear this look without adding some burgundy details to make that color pop from the blouse. I used my Urban Decay lipstick in Shame and my beautiful burgundy shoes from Shoedazzle. This is one of the best work looks yet, I feel that I'm going to have to do more shopping to top this one. What do you think? What work look staples should I get?
Hello again fellow Sequin Visioners! I hope you all had a great month of October and an awesome Halloween, I know I did. Today I want to show a look I wore a couple of weeks ago on a movie date with Texi. Unfortunately, with all the madness of work, studies, and fashion events I had to reserve this look until now. The skirt I'm wearing is actually a very old dress that I realized would match perfectly with this printed tank from Charlotte Russe, and with all the plaid in trend I could and fuller skirts on trend I could not help myself. The top was a little big on me and the bra was going to show either way so why not purposely wear a black one right? I think it adds a sexy Parisian touch a long with the statement earrings and lips. I also wore the Dollhouse biker jacket I got at Marshall's recently, Charlotte Russe black pumps, and a vintage purse from my grandmother's closet. The purse is definitely an interesting piece, not just because of the shape but also because of the mirror inside, which makes it look like an old jewelry box. Paris is always a good idea, especially when it comes to fashion; enjoy!
