The lower the temperature the higher the boots – that is my new motto. Also, the chunkier the sweater… definitely. My skin and body never got use to the extreme low temperatures in the city – no matter how many layers or heat-patches I wore, the cold got me every single time. Thank God for the extra thick modern fabrics! I am amazed that in situations like Fashion Week, no matter the rain, snow or dry-cold air, people will still managed their ways to look fabulous! I personally thought in keeping myself warm, I even had to grab an ultra hot cup of coffee every time and even with that I got compliments – who would’ve known even coffee could be an accessory. Only in New York. 
Luckily I ran away from the cold and came back home – no more layers for a while yet I definitely left a part of me under that snow.
Home is where the heart belongs – I strongly believe in that. No matter what you do or where you do it, sooner or later if its meant to be you will always find your way back. Even as my dad says: “A star will always shine no matter from where you see it.” 
Love,

Uphill battle, I look good when I climb
I’m ferocious precautious
I get crackadotious, I’m not gonna stop
I like the view from the top

You talk that
Blah blah that la la, that rah rah sh
And I’m so done, I’m so over it
Sometimes I mess up, I eff up, I hit and miss
But I’m okay, I’m cool with it

I still fall on my face sometimes and I
Can’t color inside the lines ’cause
I’m perfectly incomplete
I’m still working on my masterpiece and I
I wanna hang with the greatest gotta
Way to go, but it’s worth the wait, no
You haven’t seen the best of me
I’m still working on my masterpiece

The Street Style Recap

There are no words to describe how excited I am about this post. After some technical difficulties I can finally show you some of my amazing street style findings during New York Fashion Week. 
I noticed that no matter how bad the New York City’s humid-weather gets, it is never an excuse for the venue of Fashionistas to hit the streets with their amazing outfits.
The threat of rain during the day doesn’t always mean to “must-wear” rainy boots and take the umbrellas on a big hobo bag. On the contrary, this weather challenge makes people to take outrageous risks and get more creative with their outfit of the day because after all, it was Fashion Week.
The key? Accessories! Backpacks and sneakers were some of the main focal points on the cameras – I guess we’re going back to basics since even Alexander Wang thinks the same way with his SS 15 collection.
Among the feminine crowd there was a lot of crop tops, of course not the trashy kind but a more subtle cut out combined with pants or midi skirts that created a balance of skin-showing. 
The more the days passed the more style-uniqueness I saw. Personally, I believe that every shot is a story to tell and every look is a piece of art .

Before the fresh breeze of the Fall hit the city, I needed to wear my favorite baby blue midi skirt. Although at the beginning I felt half-naked, I must admit this is one of my favorite looks – flirty, girly and polished. This proves that getting out of your comfort zone sometimes can turn into something great. 
Where did I wore this outfit? Well, I needed to take advantage and wore this beauty for Ricardo Seco’s fashion show. Yes, a genius/proud mexican designer presenting his collection at New York Fashion Week. 

Mexico is rich in culture, colorful clothing, delicious food and joyful people, so this look is just what I needed to wear to represent my country in such an important event. I added a white crop top to make my look more bright and girly; the lace detail on the bottom creates a silhouette that makes the look more sophisticated for the occasion. 

Nothing makes me more proud of my country than when I see people fighting for their dreams and making them happen, and so is the case of Mr. Seco and his “Dream” collection presented at the World Trade Center during New York Fashion Week. It was an honor being invited to such an amazing presentation. Looking at his Sporty-chic black and white looks walking down the runway combined with colorful accessories that represent our mexican culture brought a smile to my face and reminded me proudly that #wearemexico ! 

Love,
S

Walking on the streets of Manhattan is always exciting. On my free time I love to carry my red Nikon camera and see what new perspective and stylist tips I can grab from the streets – therefore my blog “The Street Styler.”
Well, this time was the beginning of Fashion week and while I was walking towards the Lincoln Center, I could see the extra glamorous details in some peoples clothes and accessories – while I kept walking it was not only one out of five in the street but even groups of people with extraordinary sense of style as if they were taking from a magazine ad.
The closer I was to the Lincoln Center, the more contagious was the environment of truly Fashionistas walking around and making the street their runway. Woman with transparent boots, oversized puffy skirts and even some of them walking with their dogs as accessories – and the boys with clutch bags, ridiculous cool sunglasses and extra layers of shirts that made them the perfect gentleman look.
New York Fashion Week is always the most expected time of the year for the fashion industry, is like a wake up call for every one involved – be it magazine editors, public relations companies, designers and models to even bloggers, make up artists and upcoming designers. It is the time where standing out is a challenge and taking your network seriously is the key to succeed. 
There I was walking around Lincoln Center with my red camera matching my red lips, ready to take some shots for today’s post. I must confess I was nervous about of the unknown but once I got there I felt I was finally in the right place. It is a breathtaking experience and luckily for my first day in fashion week, it was easier and fun as it looks like. 
Love,
S

Street Beat – CHVRCHES

One band that I have been raving about all summer is CHVRCHES. With good reason though, but if you haven’t heard any of their songs, then please skip everything I am about to say and first play the Youtube video below.
Okay, now that you are back and we are on the same note, can we discuss how awesome they are? The Scottish electro pop band (never thought it was possible to describe a band this way) formed in 2011 and has been making their way to the US charts. They have yet to release an album but we can’t wait ’til they do. The band is composed of three members, Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty. 
CHVRCHES is set to play in Austin, TX in November and tickets are still available for purchase here.
Fun fact, Costello Tagliapietra used their track, Mother We Share, for his F/W 13 runway show last fashion week. Oh, by the way, only 10 more days until NYFW! Who’s excited?
