New York City has it all. From super chic and expensive fashion like Hermes, to cool and cheap jewelry in lower Manhattan and the beginning of Soho. Street walkers rocking their trendy and not so trendy outfits, from see-thru leggins to theater and street performances. NYC is a Metropolis full of contrasts and fashion statements. Already you can see that spring fashion is around the corner with window views of colored clothes in yellows, blues and pinks. remember NY is one step ahead of you and it has the latest of the latest in terms of fashion. Not to mention that NYFW is around the corner. I really enjoyed my time here, exploring what this fab city has to offer. I wore simple outfits because I knew I was going to walk for long periods of time, so I decided to wear a pair of white canvas TOMS, some black leggins from Mossimo, a denim shirt from H&M and it was pretty chilly so I bought a leopard scarf in the street for 10 bucks. I combined my outfit with and a lovely, acid pair of my fave Raybans. And also some heart-shaped sunnies. This trip was for sure a trip to remember and I hope to be back very soon. Enjoy the colors, the contrast and the fashion!Xx.

For those crafty ones and inspired artist out there, here are some simple ideas for you to do your own wedding decor. Using simple and beautiful materials like ball jars, acrylic paintings and acrylic spray, lace, twine, shaped wood, candy, candles, printable paperie, and more. Get creative, get inspired and spend less. I used a great site called ‘Wedding Chicks’ and they will let you print for free the invitations, monograms, table numbers, invites for the brides maids, and lots more. And the fun part is that you can customize your own colors depending on your wedding theme. I fully recommend you to give it a try. It’s a lovely site full of amazing designs and is all free!!! You can get everything else at your local crafty store. And most importantly, when you DIY, your love is the principal signature to everything you make and create. Good Luck on your special day, mine was unforgetable, like the Sinatra song!!! xx

For the past few days I have stuck in my head the popular christmas carol: Santa Clause Is Coming To Town! The funny part about it, is that I don’t even know the lyrics of the song, and I keep singing it and adding different words that doesn’t make any sense. Of course it is because where I grew up, Santa is not coming to town nor does he exist!!! But I love the song so much, that I just keep singing it my way: “You better watch out, you better watch out, Santa is coming to town” lol lol lol….. This is my holiday outfit inspired on Santa! I hope you guys LikeIt and LoveIt and merry christmas to all of my dear readers. xx.
I am wearing a cropped top from Wet Seal, a vintage flared skirt and vintage leather boots from Menin Italy.
I was invited to one of my friends baby shower in Douglasville, Ga. Lately I am surrounded by expecting, and new moms. I wonder if I am next, lol!!! Anyways, I got to the house where the baby shower was taking place, and Oh My! what a surprise. Instead of being super exited by the party and the whole baby vibe, I was astonished to what I was seeing. I felt I was in a movie set for Moulin Rouge, or a Dita Von Teese burlesque show.
This home was magical. I felt in a different time, like I went back to 1920’s or to a French cabaret, in a good way. The whole house had such an intense energy that you couldn’t ignore. From feathers, to pearls, intense red walls and ceilings, all kinds of jewelry, paintings, fabrics, antique doors and floors, gorgeous bathrooms, chandeliers, wall papers, hats, furs, mirrors…. I was enchanted by this magical place. I felt like in a candy store, I wanted to dress up and play like a little girl.
While everyone was enjoying the baby shower games, I was taking pictures and submerging myself in this wonderland. I must say I felt a little bit ashamed of myself because I did not pay much attention to the party. Instead I sat with the owner of the house and chatted with her for a long time. Off course I had to ask her: Where did you get all of this stuff from? she laughed and said, let me tell you my secret dear: Goodwill and some antique fairs.
I must say that I already knew about Goodwill, but know I am definitely doing most of my shopping there!!!!
This little puppy dog is in real life my wiener dog Emmylou, I thought this little watercolor painting is very cute and perfect to be hanged out on those corners or cute spots of the house. I personally think that the details are very important.
