In Between Seasons.. and Colors


That moment when cold to hot season starts arriving. It is normal to feel awkward and having “nothing to wear” but mixing and matching can get fun – I love my oversized sweatshirt with faux fur on the sides so before saying good-bye for a couple of months I wore it with a maroon pencil skirt and a pair of nude sandals. I love the contrast of both sober colors yet the nude gives a little Spring peek-a-boo, don’t you think?
Love, 
S

Ese momento cuando el clima entre frio y caliente empieza a llegar. Es normal sentirse raro y “no tener nada que usar” pero combinar y mezclar prendas puede ser divertido – Yo amo mi sudadera oversized con peluche en las mangas, así que antes de decirle adios por algunos meses, me lo puse con una falda pegada color marron y un par de sandalias nude. Me encanta el contraste de ambos colores sobrios pero aun asi, el color nude da un pequeño vistazo de la primavera en el look, no lo creen?
Love,
S

Many girls think that beauty comes from what you wear from head to toe – different outfits, glamorous shoes, expensive bags. Reality is, beauty comes from within and on the outside, even the smallest details make the difference to your beautiful face without spending tons of money.
Even if you don’t wear makeup, your face features should always be on point. Thanks to Benefit Mexico I learn about the importance of a good brow! I was invited to have a brow mapping and even though it wasn’t a dramatic change, it sure made a difference to my face. I believe your beauty is not about learning how to do your makeup but is about enlightening your beautiful features and embracing them daily. 

What is a brow mapping?3-step custom brow mapping technique that uses your key facial features to determine exactly where your ideal brow should start, arch and end.
My brows are now #BenefitProperty, what about yours?

Not a Day to Wear Black

I love black… always do, always will… but today was not a day to wear black! 
Those days you just want to try something a little bit different even if its just for a day at the park and lunch with your gals. 
I might not have the perfect pear shape body but accentuating my waist with an outfit gives me a nice body form. I love high-waisted pants and skirts so she I found this beauty at Zara it just had to be mine – of course adding a crop top was the best choice. If you don’t have a long sleeve crop top, you can always add a short sleeve crop top and wear a long blazer or jacket on top. It will look amazing and you won’t be cold on the streets. 
Do not be afraid to wear crop pieces during winter – if you layer it with the correct accessories they will work just perfectly.
The best advice? 
Know your best assets and have fun embracing them in your daily look!
Love, 
S

Amo el negro… siempre lo hago y siempre lo haré… pero hoy no fue el día para usar negro!
Esos días que nada mas quieres usar algo un poco fuera de lo normal aunque sea solo para ir al parque o ir a comer con tus amigas. 
Tal vez no tenga el cuerpo perfecto en forma de pera, pero acentuar mi cintura me ayuda a acentuar mi figura completa. Me encantan los pantalones y faldas high-waisted, así que, cuando encontré esta hermosura en Zara tenía que ser mía – claro que agregar un crop top fue la mejor opción para que luciera adecuadamente. Si no tienes un crop top de manga larga, puedes usar un crop top de manga corta y agregar una chaqueta o saco largo encima. Se va a ver increíble y no vas a pasar fríos afuera!
No tengas miedo de usar piezas crop durante el invierno – si usas las capas y los accesorios adecuados van a funcionar perfectamente. 
Mi consejo? 
Aprende cuales son tus mejores atributos y diviértete luciéndolos en tu look diario!
Love, 
S

New Year, Same Me

Coat: Forever 21 / Pants: Democracy (similar here) / Shoes: H&M / Bag: Aldo 
New Year, Same Me. Why to change who you are every year when you can just be the same person in a better version? Last year for me was a roller coaster – moving twice from different countries to the most amazing cities, working with different people in amazing companies, new friends, old friends reunions, and a totally fresh perspective of life. 
This year is not about being a new person but to be the best version of me. To dress for the job I want, to live in the present, to love myself before anyone else and to never let any one stand in the way of my dreams. 
What are your new year’s resolutions? 
Love,
S
_________________________________________________________________________________
Nuevo año, misma yo. Por qué cambiar quien eres cada año cuando simplemente puedes ser la misma persona en una versión mejorada? El año pasado para mi fue como una montaña rusa – me mudé dos veces de diferentes países a las ciudades mas impresionantes, trabajé con diferentes personas en compañías reconocidas, nuevos amigos, reuniones con viejos amigos, y adopté una totalmente nueva y fresca perspectiva de la vida. 
Este año no quiero ser una nueva persona sino ser la mejor versión de mí. Vestirme diario por el trabajo que quiero, vivir en el presente, quererme con todo y antes que a nadie más, y no dejar que nadie se interponga en el camino de mis sueños. 
Cuáles son tus resoluciones de año nuevo?
Love, 
S

Making Memories

Skirt: Zara (similar here) / Sweater & Boots: Forever21 / Sunnies: Gucci

There is nothing better than sharing your dreams with your friends. However, there is nothing better than making those dreams into goals and sharing them with friends that actually dream your dreams. 
I once was told that during college is when you start finding your own people – the people of your “own kind.” Sounds weird and I actually didn’t believe it until I realized that the people I spend most of my time with are the ones I have everything in common with.
It can be the fact of moving to the same city or even working on the same industry or better yet, both! This is the mysterious yet fascinating thing about life and I am so blessed to have found my own. 
That being said, I thought it would be cool to share some of their fabulous style in my blog throughout the month. Black-on-black has become one of my favorite trends and the most easy-throw-on in the morning… guess my friends thought the same way. This proves that even though you share same interests and dreams with other people it is funny how each one has its uniqueness – look closer. 
Love,
S

All of the Lights

I’m so happy I could shoot in this skirt before the snow covered all the streets and make my everyday outfits an always-must-have-tights-on looks from now on… or at least until it gets a little bit warmer. You know how much I love making my outfits somewhat casual yet presentable and feminine for any occasion so, this time I went for a metallic pencil skirt with a plaid shirt and black leather boots to edgy it up. Score! My boyfriend loved this outfit for me, mainly because he is obsessed with Suits right now and reminds him of Rachel Zane – guess I need to start watching the show. 
Speaking of suits and business attire, while I have been focus on my job and my career, one of my new year resolutions is to have time for myself and enjoy today. Simple. I have learned that no matter where you are, if you really want to accomplish something in life it is time to stand up and make it happen. Hard work pays off sooner or later so, it is good to enjoy the present – even though one day you are here and the next one you are somewhere else, there will always be ups and downs but everything do it with joy! Take time to do all your work and then grab a cup of coffee and walk around your neighborhood or get a spa day – Anything that makes you smile! 
Afterwards you realize that things that stress you out turn out easier and better when you keep a positive attitude around yourself. Don’t wait for tomorrow to realize you missed something important of your days – work hard, be happy and don’t be afraid to wear a high-waist pencil skirt! 
Love,
S

Re: The Unpaid Internship

via thefashionfoot.com

TMR posted what I thought was a great article about the unpaid internship. While it has been a controversial topic since the interns from the movie Black Swan first sued Fox last year and now with Conde Nast ending their internship program – I stand by the benefits and experience that internships, even when unpaid, withstand.

Not yet being out of college, I have had my fair share of internships, both paid and unpaid, more of the former than the latter – and I can’t imagine where I would be without them. While yes, there are some ethical issues concerning not paying your intern while he/she performs menial tasks that even a grade schooler could do, you are letting them observe an environment that they could have otherwise never been able to see. And lets be honest, not all unpaid internships are like this, actually none of mine have.

First, let’s address how working at magazine is a tough job – period. Not only for the interns, but for the fashion assistants, the editors, the photographers and basically every human being that steps foot in the publishing house. You think it’s hard taking that garment bag across town? Try working full-time at a magazine where major responsibility and millions of dollars hover over you 999% of the time. How’s that for pressure?

Second, you say that it puts people with less financial means at a disadvantage? Save. If this is what you really want to do in life, you will find a way. You say you already work part time and pay for your school as well? Work for a summer, full-time, and save that money for your next summer. In fact work during winter time and save. There are so many options out there for students across the country coming into the city to intern, co-op housing, roommates, dorms – the possibilities are endless! A lot of the interns that I worked alongside in the city weren’t trust fund kids nor were they sitting in a pile of cash. What I did find at my internships were people that were driven and passionate about what they wanted to do.

Lastly, you really do learn. Although most of my days interning in the fashion industry weren’t a walk in the park, I learned so much. I learned how to work in a fast pace environment, how to have a thick skin, the ins and outs of the industry, how to think on my feet and most importantly I was able to see if this was what I really wanted to do. I was also exposed to professionals in the field from whom I learned a lot simply by observing their work. And what you don’t hear often is how these professionals will take you under their wing if you actually put in an effort and demonstrate a willingness to be there.

In conclusion, although I was paying to work for free during my internship, the pay off I received in the long run was worth much more.

What are your thoughts on the matter?
