Stepping into your dream dress

Well this past weekend I went wedding shopping and it was an experience that I will forever cherish. The day started off with a little rough start. Living here in New York, if your not running late to an appointment… well that would almost be a miracle in itself. Arriving at our first bridal shop I was a little disappointed. Their website clearly stated no appointments were necessary but when we arrived ( 30 minutes after they opened the doors) there was a 2 hour wait to see a consultant. I understand that if this is how they run their business, this should be stated on their website. That way when people like me who have never had a bridal shop experience show up and then are told to wait don’t get bummed out. Well as most brides, I had other confirmed appointments set up for the day so with much sadness we had to leave before even getting to try on any dresses. The next store we went to was a little better. We were a bit early to this location and they were able to help us promptly. The first question they ask you is “When is the wedding and what style do you like.” Of course I had no clue what I really liked until I began to trying them on. Our consultant was a very nice lady but honestly she was not listening to my wants. I think that she was so on guard and trying to protect me from my entourage that she was making us all a little uncomfortable. I was able to find a decent dress at this store. I use the word decent because although it was a nice dress and it had components of which I was looking for, it was clear that my search was not done. I do want to be clear that when I decided to go on this first wedding gown search, I was not planning on finding my dress. The point of this day was to find the style that best suited my figure, check out prices of dresses that I did like and just get to spend time with the ladies that I had invited.

After the second appointment we have one final bridal shop to visit before we break for lunch. We arrive at the third location which is basically a little hole in the wall boutique. From the outside you would never imagine the treasure that is located inside. The walls are blue Tiffany colored walls with cream colored sofa couches located in each end. At the end of one wall near the dressing rooms is a vintage look vanity holding veils, headbands and sparkly accessories. The selection of dresses is no where nearly as much as the last two stores we had just come from. I kind of started to get nervous because I feel like I have stepped into a store that may be over my budget. The quality of these dresses are basically screaming from the hangers they hang on. When we get there, there is only one other bride in the store and two consultants, the owner and the assistant. They greet us quickly and tell us to take a seat. “Who’s the Bride?” One of them asks and everyone points to me. She sits me down on the couch and she sits down “Indian style” on the floor directly in front of me asking me stuff about my wedding, my budget, what I like and what I don’t like. About 10 minutes being at this boutique the owner says she has something that I just may be looking for and directs me to the dressing room. I look at the dress she is bringing over on the hanger and it’s almost like I begin to blush. Inside the dressing room she is explaining how she will dress me and asks which dress I’d like to start with. I immediately point at the dress that made me blush. We wiggle my big hips and butt into the dress and to my surprise, the dress fits perfectly with some minor adjustments. This is a major relief because all the dresses would slide perfectly from my head down until it reached my hip area. From the moment she finished zipping my back I can feel the difference of this dress versus all the other dresses that have been on me earlier in the day. We walk out to the main area and everyone is literally in awe at this dress. I stand on the little platform in the middle of the room and can’t stop starring at this dress. Someone, I can’t remember who, brings over a veil and a small jewel incrusted headband and puts it on me. At that moment, tears begin to roll down my cheeks and I have my moment of realization. Shit I’m getting married and this is really happening! Everyone in my entourage is teary eyed, even the owner and the assistant. I never imagined that on the first day of wedding gown shopping I would find this dress that I had dreamed about since I was a little girl. (There was that slight stage in my life in which I didn’t want to get married, but that was quickly dismissed when I fell deeper in love with my fiancé) So what I would recommend anyone shopping for their wedding dress is to not settle for the dress that you like. Stepping into your dream dress is going to be a moment and feeling like you’ve never felt before. The next few pictures are a few of the dresses that didn’t make the cut. RIP dresses lol

Latinas at the Oscars

So for the past few months, I am sure we all heard of the lack of diversity at the Oscars not only this year but just in general. I am not one who likes to focus on the negative but am also a realistic person so with that said, lets talk some fashion. I want to take a little look at the history of the Latinos that have been able to represent our culture at the Oscars, but most importantly, WHAT THEY WORE!! In this post, I will post about the woman (no discrimination gentleman) it’s just that I prefer to look at fancy dresses instead of black suits.  Lets get right into it:

 

ACTRESS SALMA HAYEK ARRIVES AT 75TH ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS.

In 2003, Mexican actress Salma Hayek wore a Carolina Herrera gown for her leading role nomination in “Frida”. Salma to me is the prime example of the beauty of Mexican women and it clearly represents that in her elegance and classiness of a dress. Not only did Salma represent for Mexicans everywhere but she also brought along the Venezuelan- American fashion designer to the red carpet.

Rita Moreno shown above is a Puerto Rican actress wearing a dress designed by Filipino Fashion designer Jose “Pitoy” Moreno. In 1961, Rita won her nomination of best supporting actress in her role in “West Side Story”.

Penelope Cruz, a Spaniard actress got her Oscar in 2007 for her best supporting actress role in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. Here she is wearing an amazing colored and perfectly gown for the occasion gown designed by Atelier Versace.

Catalina Sandino Moreno is a Colombian actress nominated in 2004 for her Best Actress role in “Maria Full of Grace”. She is wearing Roberto Cavalli for her 2004 Oscar nomination.

So there are a couple of other ladies to mention Adriana Barraza, Katy Jurado, Norma Aleandro, Berenice Bejo, Pilar Revuelta and Beatrice De Alba who have all been nominated in the past. The ladies above were my top dress picks for past red carpet moments. I can’t wait to see what the red carpet brings in 2016.

P.S. Spanish word of the day: Vestido= Dress

All of these dresses above are beautiful in their own way.

February Ipsy Glam Bag

Hello people on the internet. So I got my Ipsy makeup bag couple of days ago and absolutely loved it. Something about getting that little pink package in the mail that just makes me smile

As I try on the products, I will be reviewing them and giving my opinion on them. Below is my video I put on all the products I received this month. I hope you enjoy!

No, you can’t have my number… Pt 1

How many of you ladies have ever had to decline giving out your number to a guy when you are out. A friend and I were actually having this discussion just yesterday and came to the conclusion that there is just no nice way to turn someone down. So I interviewed a few people from all walks of life… hahahaha just kidding. I simply asked some friends and some family members to tell me how they turn down a guy. Either way, I feel as though if we give out our number, we are misleading the guy. If we do not give out our number, we are being complete snobs. So here is what everyday women have to say when a guy throws you the… “Can I get your number?”

ALL THE SINGLE LADIES

4enrf1nzwaqim

To the nice ladies that just can’t say NO: ” YEAH! If you want be friends!” If you say this, be aware that you may actually not be so nice and sound like a complete SNOB for being so upfront! Don’t expect a friendship to blossom out of that response LOL

For all you BLUNT ladies: “NO!” Now if you are willing to be completely blunt about this, then you may just be leading to further conversation. He may just ask why and be ready to answer. You could say something like “Because your not my type”

To the woman who just can’t say no and can’t say yes, the Liar: ” I have a boyfriend” “Here is my number” (then never respond, so basically you led the poor guy!) Don’t be shy if you run into him on another social outing! HAHAHAHAHA

 RECENTLY ENGAGED WOMAN

13xhnjdajndv2m

 To the smart mouth: “What’s my name? 9 times out of 10 they don’t remember so then I say: Sorry, maybe next time I run into you, you will remember my name”This woman is not here to play games and needs you to realize that from the beginning.

To the subtle woman yet not so subtle: ” I tuck my hair behind my ear with my left hand and say Sorry, I’m married” By you doing this, you do not want to rub it in their face that you are a taken woman already and hope that they get the hint by flashing your perfect diamond

To the sweet one: “Oh I’m sorry, Im engaged!” If you say this then you may even feel bad for saying this because something like this may come out of their mouth: “… oh”

Married and Lovin it

d5kpsuwgbeyyw

The runaway woman: “I do not talk to or make eye contact with guys that I get “that” vibe from (we all know that vibe ladies). If I get that vibe, I avoid them and walk another direction. The man never gets the chance to ask me because I pick up the flirt vibe quickly”

  • By the way I just want to give a quick shout out to my friend Ciji for giving me her input. Please check out her online store and support on handmade handbags at CijiLoren

Straight to the point woman: ” I just look at them and show them my ring and say WRONG GIRL.. My husband is right there”

The show off woman: “I just show them my ring and give them a huge smile!” Expect a huge smile back. 

Now let me tell you what type of girl I am. The woman in a serious relationship. I remember once I kind of got tired of being asked out at work. So one day while I was shopping I bought myself a fake ring. I find that more often than not, a man will slowly back away from a woman who wears a ring. So that makes me a liar! Hahahahaha these days I don’t wear one anymore because I’m expecting the real thing. So guys, I hope you enjoyed this fun post. It was fun to get responses from my family members and friends. I thank them for their support and their willingness to give me a little of their time. Have a great week and I will talk to you guys soon!

Gifts for her this Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day being less than a week away now, lets get straight to the point. So I am giving you gentlemen a few ideas on what to get your special lady on that special day. I know that people say that Valentine’s Day should be every day and not only one day of the year and I agree but I still think that it is nice to get something on this day of the year. People do not have to go all out and spend all this money since companies do tend to increase their prices this day. There are actually a lot of nice finds out there, and a lot of them can be ordered online and shipped directly to your home. So down below, I will share my favorite items that I think are reasonably priced and are nice ideas to gift a lady.

 

71IpzcrEThL._UY395_
Solitaire Swarovski Necklace $42  

 

81dBSd4n78L._UX662_
Swarovski Zirconia Tennis Bracelet $64
71xtJcvoMWL._UX662_
Swarovski Zirconia Stud Earrings $37  

So who wouldn’t like to receive some nice jewelry? These items here are simple, elegant and classics items that everyone women should have in their collection. I found that SWAROVSKI is a great collection with pieces that can be very affordable.

The next item that I will share can be a little tricky. Every woman has their own sense of style and guys, you really should ask the bestie’s opinion on this but I will give you some ideas for a nice bag to gift. These are the top three bags that I was able to find both affordable and easy to style bags:

91neJHmbdWL._UX385_
London Fog Heather Satchel Bag $90
img-thing
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Crosby Bag $121
91CEFPzufML._UY500_
Fossil Sydney Tote Bag $168   

The last item I want to share with you guys is something that I literally die for every time I pass by a window here in New York. SHOES. I love them and they do not always have to have a heel. Find out what your lady likes and if she prefers sneakers, then a nice pair of sneakers is very easy to find. If she prefers heels, just look for her shoe size and I will let you in on some go to shoes that every woman should have in her closet.

For the sneaker head, if she doesn’t own this shoe already do her a favor and add it:

819d1EuLWrL._UX695_
Nike Rosherun Shoe $109  

For the heel lover, get her a nice statement heel like the one from Aldo:

Aldo Women’s Uneasien Dress Sandal $37

The last pair are just some comfortable, need to get the job done type of shoes. I love TOMS!

TOMS Women’s Canvas Slip-On $Price may vary

Finally, if all else fails and you just didn’t have time to make it or purchase your gift, avoid walking in empty handed. No woman wants to hear you say that you do not have anything or you forgot. I know here in NYC there are tons of flower shops as you walk to your subway or head out to your nearest bodega. Feel free to purchase a nice card and some of her favorite flowers. These are my favorite:

PF_15_T315_MINIMAL_VA0041_W1_SQ
15 Sweetheart Tulips $24.99 + SH  

I hope this was helpful and were able to get some ideas. Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your day with your special lady.

Affordable Gift Ideas for Him

So today’s post, I want to talk about Valentine’s Day. I mean I know many people always talk about how it is just a day that was made to spend money and buy things. This may be true and in most cases, people probably are over spending. So I decided to make a list of  items on what I consider affordable and nice gifts. A lot of times, there will be articles that I read about “affordable” gifts for him or her and then you have these $500+ items on the lists. Like seriously… I know like many people, I have bills to pay so if I can find an gift for an affordable price, I will definitely go for the deal.

So lets take a look at some nice gifts for him. Him can be a boyfriend, husband or just a crush that you have on a guy. I personally love gifting watches. I think I have given my boyfriend all of his watches, with the exception of maybe 1 of them. I love love love, Fossil. If you are looking for a good reliable watch to gift, I would look into these. Some cool perks about Fossil is that they replace your battery usually at no fee if it dies. Right now they have an embossing/engraving promo going on until February 5. They will do this for FREE people. This just gives it that extra personal touch to that loved one. Some of my favorite looks right now are:

FS5150_main
GRANT CHRONOGRAPH DARK BROWN LEATHER WATCH $145
FS4835_main
GRANT CHRONOGRAPH NAVY LEATHER WATCH $135
ME3104_main
TOWNSMAN AUTOMATIC BLACK LEATHER WATCH $195

So the next item I would like to include as a gift idea for him is something that I have always wanted myself: a classic messenger bag. I am in love with those things and envy that statement piece that men get to wear with their fitted suites (walking down Wall Street).

720abbd2e85ae71b5805f1109727610d

These are a couple of bags that I found that would go great for any business meeting, a day at the office or heading off to class.

 

41jcBDA--NL._AC_UL320_SR284,320_
Cole Haan Leather Messenger Bag $144.99
71wn9OCscpL._UX385_
Kenneth Cole Reaction Come Bag Soon $99.99

 

41x5vViBscL._SX450_
My last suggestion for a gift are some amazing statement sunnies! Spring is the next season on the agenda and what better way then to gift your man with the perfect shades! Top picks for me below:

31+z7x9Ly2L._SL200_SY260_CR0,0,200,260_
Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses $160
ray-ban-mens-0rb4221-square-sunglasses-nero-gommato-grey-and-black-50-mm-2-1000x1000
Ray-Ban Men’s Square Sunglasses $67
317tTbD8lUL
Carrera Rectangular Sunglasses $70

 

So these are just some thoughts to get your mind rolling on good Valentine’s Day gifts for you sweetie. I feel like sometimes women think Valentine’s Day is all about them but we can make our men feel worthy of our love that day too! Thanks for visiting my page and let me know if you liked any of the gift ideas.

Selena Quintanilla

So I had mentioned about a month ago that I wanted to write about Selena and her iconic fashion input into our world. I think that anyone growing up in Texas in the 90’s must have been in love with Selena. Her music, her personality and her amazing wardrobe outfits she would put on to give a show is what she is known for. I remember trying to sing like Selena with my younger sister when we were put to do chores around our house. Remember those big home theater players that looked like this:

stereo
Audio/Video System

Yea I used to love that thing! (Lol) So in case you are looking to update your system, there you go. So back to Selena, I recently read an article that M.A.C. is going to be honoring Selena in 2016 by introducing a limited edition product line in her name. All of her fans would definitely be proud to see her still being remembered today, almost 20 years after her unfortunate death.

#MACSELENA

Selena was most known for being Queen of Tejano Music. During her time as a famous singer, Selena was often criticized from everything to not being “Mexican” enough to be a part of the Mexican culture to being one to “sexy” for her choice of outfits on stage. She was known as the “Tejano Madonna”

Selena:

Here are some really cool facts that I did not know about Selena until I researched on her a little:

Selena was a spokesperson for Coca-Cola from 1989 till the time of her death

selenacoke4
looooving the Texas hair

Selena was 5’6″ in height (She was taller than me…!!)

Selena designed all of her stage outfits herself (fashion designer in the making)

I honestly do not think I have met one person in my life that didn’t like Selena. She was just one of those people in life that you can’t dislike. Her music, beauty and style will continue to live in people’s hearts because she left this earth too soon. So I can’t wait until M.A.C. introduces her new line so that I can run and get some stuff!

Hola y buenas tardes a todos los que están aquí en mi pagina. Hace un mes, mencione que quiera escribir sobre la cantante Selena Quintanilla. Pienso que igual que yo, en el tiempo de los 90’s cualquier persona viviendo en Texas en es tiempo estaba fascinada con Selena. La música, su personalidad y su estilo de vestir en el escenario era lo que hacia uno reconocerla. Me acuerdo de chiquita cuando mi mama nos hacia limpiar en la casa, yo y mi hermana nos gustaba cantar con la música a todo volumen en esas maquinas de música. Se acuerdan… (lol)?

Estéreo de los 90’s

Ahi como amaba esa maquina.. jajajajaja!  So si están buscando algo similar, ahi les puse el link por Amazon. Bueno.. continuemos con el tema de Selena. Lei recienmente un articulo que hablaba sobre la compañia M.A.C. estaría haciendo en el año 2016 una linia de maquillaje en memoria de Selena. Supongo que todas la fanáticas de Selena estarán orgullosas de que ella esta aun después de 20 años de fallecida, en la memoria de todos.

Selena era conocida como la Reina de la Musica Tejana. Durante la época de Selena, ella fue criticada por cosas como no ser “Mexicana” para la comunidad Mexicana y otras cosas como su estilo de vestir por ser muy sexi. Su forma de vestir le puso el apodo de la “Madonna Tejana”

Holiday Time

So it is January 3rd, 2016 and this is officially my first blog post this year. I really didn’t have time to post anything due to a few things. I got lazy, I was busy and then I got sick. Being sick during the holidays has got to be the worst thing ever. Having to be around all the people and the food and you just sit there and slowly die. (Ok maybe that is just a bit much) During Christmas, the weather in NYC was far from being what the normal weather is like. Christmas Eve my wardrobe was a Christmas Tee from Areopostatle during the day which I found for like 7 dollars!  I wore some sparkly pants that I got from H&M with black silk shirt and paired them with black classic Louboutins.

One of the more exciting events I was able to attend was the Jacqueline De Ribes exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum. One of the fashion icons of the twentieth century was known as a muse to most couture fashion designers. If you are interested in seeing her exhibit and some fabulous designs, I would definitely recommend you stop by this exhibit before it ends. The Art of Style will be open to museum guests until February 21, 2016.

Ok… I’m trying to sit here and think of what else my holidays consisted of…? Oh I know… the time we celebrated my boyfriend’s cousins birthday party! That was so much fun and it was absolutely fun to get dressed up for where we decided to go. Lets just say that I was able to put on my red lipstick and dance without a care in the world that night!

I wore my black basic tee underneath an amazing burgundy leather jacket I borrowed from my boyfriends aunt. (BTW, her closet is to die for!!) My scarf was basically a steal from H&M. My jeans that I didn’t get a good picture of were some 80’s style jeans. I love those jeans so I am sure you guys will get to see them in another post.

I ended my year spending time with my Aunt in Bowie, Maryland. She lives in the suburbs of Maryland and just about 30 minutes away from Washington D.C. By the time I got here, I was really sick and ready to end the year. I decided not to get dressed up this year and roll in the new year in my favorite silk pajamas.

Well, I think this blog has lasted enough and I will see you guys soon. Hope you enjoyed my little adventure during the holidays with me and I look forward to having a successful blogging year.

Frida Kahlo= FASHION

Hey guys,

Can I just stop and say how amazing this weather is today? Its 61 degrees in New York City today! I mean c’mon, we are basically in the middle of December and this is sweater weather we are in. I say we all take advantage of pulling out or chunky sweaters and small booties and enjoy the weekend. Ok so today I want to talk a little bit about a Mexican artist that I have been learning more about these past few weeks. There was recently an exhibit of Frida Kahlo that was held at the New York Botanical Gardens that I unfortunately did not get a chance to visit. (I highly regret this btw…) Frida was known for her self portraits, her relationship with fellow artist Diego Rivera and her kick ass attitude towards life. While reading and learning about Frida, I noticed a recurring theme in her wardrobe: bright colored dresses.

XSQF5518
Frida’s Tehuana Dresses

These dresses are called Tehuana dresses and come from Oaxaxa, Tehuantepec. All of Frida’s private belongings are located in”The Blue House” better known as La Casa Azul.

La Casa Azul

Frida is someone that I can relate to when it comes to her passion to surviving her tragic past. As a little girl, she went through an accident that nearly left her dead. With the will to survive, this is where Frida comes to find the passion  that would make her a Mexican Artist known all over the world. One of the reasons why Frida is always seen in the similar wardrobe style of Tehuana dresses is because of the accident and also because  she wanted to embrace her culture and show it to the world.

Frida-Kahlo-71
Frida in New York 1946

After Frida’s 140 countless paintings through out her career, Frida Kahlo died on her 47th year of birth. Frida like many women struggled with her emotions, marriage and reputation to make a name for herself in the world. She did in fact make a name for herself and proved to the world that she did belong in the elite world of famous artists. With all the fame and status, Frida Kahlo never stopped suffering from her pain internally. She just learned to cope with it and express it in the only way she knew how: painting. One of the final entries in her diary, Frida quotes ” I hope the exit is joyful- and I hope never to return!” I really enjoyed learning about Frida Kahlo and her life as an artist. I think that a lot of times people  struggle to find a way to express themselves. Frida is an example that no matter what you have been through or what pain you may be feeling, there is always a path to choose. When I visit the City of Mexico, the Frida Museum is definitely one that will be on my list to visit.

Hola chicos,
Puedo parar y decir lo increíble que esta el día de hoy? Estamos a 61 grados en la ciudad de Nueva York hoy! Osea, estamos básicamente en el medio de Diciembre y con esta temperatura estamos a moda de suéter. Yo digo que todos aprovechemos sacar el suéter gruesos y las pequeñas botines y disfrutar del fin de semana. Ok cambiando de tema,  hoy quiero hablar un poco acerca de una artista Mexicana que he estado aprendiendo más sobre estas últimas semanas. Recientemente hubo una exposición de Frida Kahlo que se celebró en el Jardín Botánico de Nueva York que por desgracia no tuve la oportunidad de visitar. (I altamente lamento por cierto …) Frida era conocida por sus autorretratos, su relación con el también artista Diego Rivera y su actitud de patear el culo hacia la vida. Mientras aprendia mas sobre Frida, me di cuenta de un tema recurrente en su armario: vestidos de colores brillantes.

XSQF5518
Vestidos Tehuana De Frida Kahlo

Estos vestidos son llamados vestidos de tehuana y provienen de Oaxaca, Tehuantepec. Todas las pertenencias privadas de Frida se encuentran en “La Casa Azul” mejor conocido como La Casa Azul.

La Casa Azul

Frida es alguien que me identifico con lo que se refiere a su pasión para sobrevivir a su trágico pasado. Cuando era pequeña, ella pasó por un accidente que casi la dejó muerta. Con la voluntad de sobrevivir, aquí es donde Frida viene a encontrar la pasión que haría de ella una artista Mexicana conocida en todo el mundo. Una de las razones por las que Frida siempre se ve en el estilo de vestuario similar de vestidos de tehuana es a causa del accidente y también porque quería abrazarla cultura Mexicana y mostrárselo al mundo.

Frida-Kahlo-71
Frida en Nueva York, 1946

Después de 140 innumerables pinturas de Frida a través de fuera de su carrera, Frida Kahlo murió en su 47o año de nacimiento. Frida como muchas mujeres luchó con su emociones, el matrimonio y la reputación de hacer un nombre por sí misma en el mundo. Ella, de hecho, hico un nombre por sí misma y le demostró al mundo que ella pertenecía en el mundo élite de artistas famosos. Con toda la fama y estatus, Frida Kahlo nunca dejó de padecer su dolor interno. Ella solamente aprendió a lidiar con él y lo expreso de la única manera que supo: la pintura. Una de las entradas finales en su diario, Frida cita “Espero que la salida sea feliz- y nunca esperamos volver!” Me gustó mucho el aprendizaje sobre Frida Kahlo y su vida como artista. Creo que un montón de veces las personas se esfuerzan por encontrar una manera de expresarse. Frida es un ejemplo de que no importa lo que haya pasado uno en su pasado porque siempre hay un camino para elegir. Cuando visito la Ciudad de México, el Museo Frida es definitivamente uno que estará en mi lista para visitar.

New Blogger

Good Evening Ladies and Gents,

I wanted to do something in my spare time and decided what better way than to blog about my favorite topic: FASHION! I find myself constantly on Pinterest, Instagram or any other social media site looking up different blogs about what people are wearing. Fashion to me means the expression of what you want it to be at that particular moment. It does not have to be any particular trend that is currently in, although some of the “in” stuff is fun and easy to wear when you have no idea what to wear. I enjoy dressing up and getting ready for fun and like to experiment with new styles. I wouldn’t say that I have one style in particular because I love all styles and am not afraid to wear “different” ones that I like but if I did have to pick a style it would be…. I guess you can make that decision. Currently I am living in one of the most famous cities in the entire world: New York City. I have been living here for about three years now and have to say that it is truly one of a kind. One of my favorite things about living here is the vast amount of fashion that surrounds the cities. People from all over the world come to New York to either live or visit and that includes: Their Wardrobes. I love looking at the city and the different cultures that are in it from all over the world.  I am not looking to become this world wide obsessed blogger but rather someone who can express my feelings in fashion through the web. I haven’t started taking pictures for my blog since this is new but hope to post some soon. Thank you for taking the time for stopping by and remember this: Forget the rules if you like to wear it.

Buenas noches Chicas y Chicos,

Quería hacer algo en mi tiempo libre y decidí que mejor manera que hacer un blog sobre mi tema favorito: LA MODA! Me encuentro constantemente en Pinterest, Instagram o cualquier otro sitio de medios sociales mirando diferentes blogs sobre lo que la gente está usando. Moda para mí significa la expresión de lo que tu quieres que sea en ese momento en particular. No tiene por qué haber ninguna tendencia particular que está actualmente en moda, aunque algunos de las “en moda” cosas son divertidas y fácil de llevar cuando no tienes idea de qué ponerte. Me gusta vestirme y experimentar con nuevos estilos. Yo no diría que tengo un estilo en particular, porque me encantan todos los estilos y no tengo miedo de usar algo “diferente” de lo que me gusta, pero si tuviera que elegir un estilo en particular sería …. bueno supongo que puedes tomar esa decisión. Actualmente estoy viviendo en una de las ciudades más famosas del mundo: la ciudad de Nueva York. He estado viviendo aquí durante unos tres años y tengo que decir que es verdaderamente único en su clase. Una de mis cosas favoritas sobre la vida aquí es la gran cantidad de moda que rodea las ciudades. Gente de todo el mundo vienen a Nueva York para vivir o visitar y eso incluye: sus modas. Me encanta mirar la ciudad y las diferentes culturas que hay en ella de todas partes del mundo. No estoy buscando para convertirme en una obsesionada blogger famosa, sino alguien que pueda expresar mis sentimientos en la moda a través de la web. No he comenzado a tomar fotos para mi blog ya que esto es nuevo, pero la esperanza de publicar algunos pronto. Gracias por tomarse el tiempo en mi pagina y recuerda esto: Olvídate de las reglas si lo quieres usar.

Sinceramente Jane
