Some of my favorite everyday-wear items.. served with a side of pineapple!


Casually wandering around Hollywood beach, Fl. dressed in a few of my favorite basics...  with, DarlingJuliet.com.

This moto jacket from furormoda.com is hard to keep on the hanger.
Growing up, my dad always wore combat boots and a leather jacket... Seriously, almost everyday. He didn't have just ONE leather jacket, there were many. 
Some of them even had... Tassels!
His effortlessly cool roadie-lifestyle influenced the attitude in my style... and possibly the lack of color in my wardrobe.

Fun in Florals!




Exploring Hollywood beach, Fl.



Fashion is a state of mind. A spirit, an extension of one's self. Fashion talks, it can be an understated whisper, a high-energy scream or an all knowing wink and a smile. Most of all fashion is about being comfortable with yourself, translating self-esteem into a personal style.

What I wore for the first day of spring!


It was the perfect day to embark on a photo adventure with my dear friend, Darling Juliet. Her photography skills never cease to amaze me. I have her to thank for these lovely shots, today! 

With the end of winter and the beginning of spring, we are reminded that it is never too late to start over or to start something new. So, I ask... what truly makes you happy? Yes, you! For me, its simple. When I feel that I am totally immeresed with creativity and my ideas are becoming reality, that is when I am at my happiest. 
You already know that I love being in front of the camera, but I also love being behind the camera just as much, if not more. Julia, allowed me some time behind her camera and she suddenly became my muse. I think I captured some beautiful images of her, you can see here... CLICK.

So, do what makes YOU happy and do it with gratitude! 



OUTFIT DETAILS:
TOP. Silence + Noise
SKIRT. B.P. Collection (Lilac and Lilies)

EXPRESS runway show in Miami hosted at the Raleigh Hotel by super model, Kate Upton.

Last Thursday, EXPRESS took over the Raleigh Hotel and put on one major party!
You HAD to be there, but if you weren't, here's what you missed...

Attendees, who mostly consisted of Miami's top bloggers and style influencers, were treated to manicures, a braid bar, an OPEN bar (thats all me!), a DIY station hosted by DIY blogger- Erica Domesek from P.S. I MADE THIS, and for the grand finale- one killer fashion show. The runway show consisted of looks from the EXPRESS spring collection and you can shop the looks here, at www.express.com.




(Above, from left to right: Photographer- Gabriel Sanchez, Blogger- Daniela Ramirez from NanysKlozet.com, and D'ana Nunez from CollectionsandVolumes.blogspot.com)

The fashion show was hosted by, Sports Illustrated model, Kate Upton. When Kate Upton first arrived on the scene, I may have weirded her out with my, "OMG!! ITS HER!"- face.
What can I say? I get a little star struck sometimes.

One of my favorite parts about being a blogger and attending events such as this is getting to meet other bloggers who I find to be inspiring. Bloggers hosting this event were dressed head-to-toe in EXPRESS. Although, some may have been wearing the same pieces, it was exciting to see everyone's own personal style shine through the looks. 



Above, I'm posing with one of my favorites, Annie Vazquez from TheFashionPoet.com.

SHOES. Sam and Libby (TargetStyle)
BAG. Marc by Marc Jacobs

BRACELET. Pura Vida

WARBY PARKER- Such a classy name.








Hey everyone! I am super excited to share this quick little video of me sporting my new REILLY (in marzipan tortoise) shades by WARBY PARKER. The company just launched their new 2014 collection, just in time for spring! "Warby Parker frames are crafted on one of the finest production lines in the world alongside several other high-end boutique brands."

The brand makes it super easy to purchase opticals and shades online. Choose 5 frames to try on and Warby Parker will ship them to you for FREE! Choose your favorite pair from your at home try-on frames (trust me, choosing a favorite is harder than it sounds) and then pack up your try-on frames and send them back to Warby Parker with free return shipping. *Remember any pair that you purchase, someone in need will be distributed a pair of their own.

Its Friday - wear Black

The perfect fragrance for a friday, Elizabeth and James' Nirvana- Black.
Wearing it right now and it is so good. 

 I also love Nirvana- White, but I have a hard time choosing a favorite between the two. Of course, its all about preference, but Nirvana- Black really isn't designed for any specific gender and is often compared to Tom Ford's - Black Orchid, due to the woodsy smell. Elizabeth and James' Nirvana - Black is... "earthy, woody sweetness, a tobacco/cognac impression." - Elena Knezhevich

Getting ready for that new moon tonight! 
Heres a cute behind-the-scenes polaroid from yesterday's shoot... 
p.s. Can you BUH-lieve this adorable sweater is from CHARLOTTE RUSSE ?! 
Well believe it.

The Aquarius new moon

Had to share this after finding it on Audrey Kitching's instagram page, an explanation of tonights new moon!

"The Aquarius New Moon On January 30 is a SuperMoon. A SuperMoon means that the Moon is closest to the Earth and in direct alignment with the Sun and the Earth. This makes it extra powerful. There are two New Moons in January. Both are SuperMoons. This is a double new beginning. Pause, breathe & digest what is happening to you. A new cycle is beginning for you. The Aquarius New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You could awaken to your divine destiny. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. You are prepared to stand in your divine power and shine your light. This energy promotes your creative self-expression!"

Unearthed Vintage 2 year anniversary party











No, I'm not getting married anytime soon--at least not that I know of as of yet, but I did fall in love with this unique little company within the wedding industry called, Unearthed Vintage. "Unearthed Vintage is the first rental company of its kind to hit south Florida's event scene, opening their doors to the public, renting out their ever-growing collection of vintage goods in January of 2012." I had the pleasure attending Unearthed Vintage's two year anniversary party last week and I fell in love with all of their vintage and the good people behind the business. Honestly, I never knew the wedding industry could be so fun and inspiring, but now "I do!" Tasty hors d'oeuvres,  handcrafted cocktails in mason jar glasses, live music, and tons of vintage furniture were just a few of the party's one of kind elements. My favorite time of the evening was jumping into the photo booth. The name is pretty self-explanatory and we may have had a little too much fun, but check out the video below to see all the rage on this new photo booth trend, the Slomo-Booth.  
"Whether a newly engaged couple planning their big day, an event planner, stylist, photographer or TV/Film production crew; Unearthed Vintage's vast assortment of timeless collectibles will put you in a time warp dating back to the early 1900's."
