DTLA DAYS

September 25, 2016


I'll be the first to admit I didn't always appreciate downtown Los Angeles. In fact, for many years Emil and I completely ignored dtla and spent majority of our time hanging out in West Hollywood, Malibu and Venice. But about 2 years ago, our friends invited us to dinner at Ledlow ( one of our favorite downtown restaurants at this moment ) and after, took us on a mini tour of some of their favorite downtown spots. They took us to the coolest vintage stores, cute cafes and modern art galleries, which made us see downtown Los Angeles in a completely different light. From that point on, we started hanging out at downtown more and more and within a year, it's become one of our favorite spots to be in LA.

TECH NECK - THE IMPORTANCE OF USING A NECK CREAM

September 23, 2016

Special thank you to StriVectin for partnering with me on this post, all opinions expressed are my own. 
You know..., you spend way too much time on your phone, said my mom to me as we were sitting at Faith and Flower one Saturday morning waiting for our breakfast. After muttering a few clumsy excuses, like but it's work related and it's only gonna take me a minute, I started thinking about what she said and realized that mom was absolutely correct, as usual. I do spend a lot of time on my tech devices. After all, I do most of my work on my phone and laptop, I prefer to shop on line, and by definition, a perfect evening at home almost always involves watching a favorite show or two on Netflix.


FALL-READY BURGUNDY: TIBI NORA BOOTS

September 21, 2016


The only thing that makes saying goodbye to summer a bit more tolerable is updating my fall wardrobe, and these Tibi burgundy beauties are my latest find! Aside from color of course, what really attracted me to these boots in the first place, is the thicker, sturdier heel, which definitely makes them very comfortable to wear. Another reason, is the fact that they pair so well with this season's cropped denim, which I've been wearing quite a bit lately ( recent sightings here & here )! 


A POP OF PINK

September 19, 2016


Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my updated off-duty uniform with you guys. Since the fall season is upon us and the temperatures in Los Angeles have been dropping, especially in the evening, denim cut offs are no longer an option for me :)  

As I browsed through more fall appropriate alternatives, I came across these awesome destroyed girlfriend jeans. I instantly fell in love with them, as I'm sure you can tell, since I've featured them here on my blog before during NYFW. The slightly loose fit is so comfortable, I find myself wearing these every chance I get.


NYFW MINI MOMENT

September 17, 2016

During the first few days of NYFW the temperatures were in the 90s, and the humidity level was through the roof! I'm talking all you want to do is put on your bathing suit and take a dip in a nice cool pool kinda weather! But alas, it was fashion week and since wearing swimwear in the city din't seems appropriate, I was glad to have this adorable shirt dress with me. Super comfortable and lightweight, it was absolutely perfect for running around in all that New York City heat.


NTFW DAY 2 - SOFT BLAZER & GUCCI GG MARMONT

September 14, 2016


I've always had a soft spot for great blazers! A perfect topper to complete pretty much any look, blazers add a certain polish to outfits and transform even the most casual of looks into chic ensembles. Today's pajama-inspiared, silky number I wore to Jenny Packham's NYFW SS17 show, is definitely my favorite at the moment! Aside from the color, what I love about it the most, is how effortlessly chic it is!


MIXING FAVORITE STAPLES FOR NYFW DAY ONE

September 12, 2016


I was having lunch with a friend at Gracias Madre the other day, when she asked me how to I choose my NYFW outfits. After a prolonged silence, because honestly, most of the time this process is quite intuitive, I realized that choosing the right look to wear to Fashion Week is really a combination of 3 different factors and I've partnered with Express to share them with you.
