"Emerald City"

My inspiration for this outfit was Elizabeth Taylor's famous "emerald jewelry" that recently sold for millions. This year for Christmas i wanted it to be filled with glamour and elegance, Yet i did not want to over spend this outfit made be feel like i just walked the red carpet but didn't spend red carpet money. I hope you guys enjoy and ALWAYS keep in mind that glamour isn't expensive to create!

Mi inspiración para este equipo era famoso Elizabeth Taylor "esmeraldas", que recientemente vendió por millones. Este año, por Navidad yo quería que se llena de glamour y elegancia, sin embargo, yo no quería pasar más de este equipo se hizo sentir como que acaba de entrar por la alfombra roja, pero no gastar dinero en la alfombra roja. Espero que ustedes disfruten ysiempre tener en cuenta que el glamour no es caro para crear!
Yasi besos

The coat that didn't get away

Ahhh is Christmas really two days away? Sad to say but I barley finished my Christmas shopping today. I definitely learned my lesson though because it was crazy & all the good stuff was gone but while I was supposed to be shopping for others as always I found something for myself. but this is was an exceptional item more than something I could just pass up It was this amazing faux fur coat from the Gap. I have been on a mission to find the perfect faux fur coat but believe me it has not been an easy journey. The problem that I seemed to keep having was that I looked bulky and since I'm not tall or skinny I had a hard time finding a coat that did not make me look like a bear. While at my local Gap store I happened to come across this magnificent coat at an even better price. The coat cost me $40! Yes, can you believe it? It was on sale plus additional 40% off. There was no away i was letting this baby get away. This coat is perfect for me! It is slim and refrains from making me look wide. It also has a twill belt at the waist so it gives a very feminine silhouette, the round neckline gives it a classic charm.  In addition the color  is very  attractive because its  neutral which gives me the ability to play around more. I wore this coat the first day i bought, it was to my office Christmas party which is was a formal dinner so I wore it with a satin dress. That look was very glamorous  I want to wear it again with something less over the top. I think i will be doing something like the picture below, What do you guys think?

Ahhh es la Navidad realmente en dos días? Es triste decirlo, pero apenas terminé mis compras navideñas hoDefinitivamente aprendí mi lección, porque era una locura y todo lo bueno se ha ido, como siempre  cuando ando de compras por los demás, me encontré algo para mí. pero esto es un elemento excepcional. He estado en una misión para encontrar elabrigo perfecto de piel sintética, pero créanme que no ha sido un viaje fácil. El problema que parecía seguir teniendo es que yoveía abultado y como yo no soy alta ni flaca  tenía dificultades encontrar un abrigo que no me hacen ver como un oso. Mientras que en mi tienda local de Gap se llegue a través de este magnífico abrigo a un precio aún mejor. Me costó $ 40! Sí, ¿puedes creerlo? Fue a la venta más de 40% adicional. No había distancia que estaba dejando este bebé escapar. Esta abrigo es perfecto para mí! Es delgado y se abstiene de hacer me mirar amplia. También cuenta con un cinturón de tela cruzada a la cintura que da un silueta muy femenina, el escote redondo le da un encanto clásico. Además, elcolor es muy atractivo debido a su neutralidad, que me da la posibilidad de jugar un poco más. Llevé esta abrigos mi cena Navideña de trabajo el primer día que lo compré, se trataba de una cena formal, d me lo puse con un vestido de satén. Esa mirada era muy glamorosa quiero usarlo otra vez con algo menos elegante. Creo que voy a estar haciendo algo como la imagen de abajo, ¿Qué piensan ustedes?

Queen of Hearts

Happy Sunday Funday! Is it me or is Sunday not really Funday? I mean how can it possibly be that fun when you know you have to work on Monday? It should be like Saturday Funday or something. Well on another note I really love this super feminine outfit i put together today. The hearts and the pleated skirt made me feel very girly. The best part about it is, all together it cost a total of $59.! and thats including shoes too! Super good deal for an entire outfit don't you think? I love finding good deals. What's the best fashion deal you have got?

Feliz Funday domingo! ¿Soy yo o es el domingo en realidad no Funday? Quiero decir ¿cómo puede ser tan divertido cuando sabes que tienes que trabajar el lunes? Debe ser como el sábado Funday o algo así. Bueno, en otra nota  realmente me gusta la ropa que elegí es súper femenina y divertida. La mejor parte es, todo junto me costo total de $59! y esoincluyendo los zapatos también! Me encanta encontrar buenas ofertas. ¿Cuál es la oferta más mejor de moda que tienes?

San Francisco in Instagram

This past weekend I took a break from real life and went to San Francisco. I drove there since it's not far from where I live, about an hour and a half I think. I went alone but luckily my aunt & her husband were there visiting from Pasadena so we meet up and had a great time but you'll be able to see that in the pics, enjoy.
Este fin de semana pasado me tomó un descanso de la vida real y fui a San Francisco. Manejé allí ya que no está muy lejos de donde vivo, aproximadamente una hora y media que creo. Fui sola pero por suerte mi tía y su marido estaban allí visitando desde Pasadena, así que nos reunimos y disfrutamos lo verán en las fotos.

All about the shoes

It is so beautiful outside,  doesn't feel like winter.
Can you believe we are just 24 days away from Xmas. I am sure you have already started thinking about Xmas gifts&shopping. I know you haven't forgotten about what to wear for all the holidays parties and get togethers, hopefully we can inspire you with fabulous outfit ideas.
Black has been my one of my favorite colors, but sometimes you have to add a bit of white to create a
proper outfit. Gold accessories and for the end, the perfect add  for a pop of color Blue Suede Shoes.

Royal Mustard

Hello my dearest readers, how is everyone on this blah Monday? All Monday seem to be blah, they are usually my catch up days. How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was good I ended up spending a lot of time with my family which is nice because everyone has super busy lives it’s hard to visit one another. Friday night was one of my cousins (I have 20) surprise 15th Birthday party. It was really interesting seeing all the high school kids, man they are so much more hip and cooler than what I was at fifteen. It was weird, I kind of felt old being around them and I’m not even old! Ha ha but it was fun. Then Saturday It was my mom’s Birthday so my dad and I took her to dinner since my oldest sister and brother were in LA and my little sister was working it was just us and my son.  We went to a little local Italian restaurant that was aaamazing! Its always nice to spend quality time with the parents since I don’t get to see them often. After I went to my aunt’s house to visit with some more cousins.  I also went to Target because have been literally been dying to buy the Olay facial cleanser device (which is also super amazing, I’ll tell you more later). Then Sunday I went to lunch with my other aunt and her two boys, since my son loves hanging with them. I met up with  my sis Yasi to take our pics it was crazy trying to beat the sunset but we did the best we could, we always have fun shooting. Well that was pretty much my weekend. Ughh I just remembered I need to start Christmas shopping ASAP. Has anyone else waited till the last minute?

This is what I wore to dinner with my parents. I really love the tailored pants and sleek black pumps with a more fun loose top.  I think it was well balanced what do you guys think? I also really love this color combo the mustard yellow almost gold with the royal blue & the leopard belt.




¿Hola mis queridos lectores, cómo estan este lunes? Todos los lunes parecen ser bla, normalmente son mis días de alcanzarme con mis cosas. ¿Cómo fue el fin de semana de todo el mundo? El mio fue bueno terminé gastando mucho tiempo con mi familia que es bonito porque todo el mundo tiene vida súper ocupado es difícil visitar uno al otro. La noche del viernes fue quinceañera  de una de mis primas (tengo 20). Fue muy interesante ver a todos los niños de la escuela secundaria, hombre son mucho más cool de yo era  a los quince años. Fue raro,  me sentí vieja está alrededor de ellos y no estoy ni vieja! Ja ja pero fue muy divertido. Luego sábado fue cumpleaños de mi mamá así que mi papá y yo la llevamos a cenar.Mi hermana mayor y hermano fueron en LA y mi hermanita estaba trabajando. Fuimos a un pequeño restaurante italiano local que fue ricisimo!  Siempre es agradable pasar tiempo de calidad con los padres ya qu no vivo con. Después me fui a casa de mi tía para visitar con unos primos más. También fui a la Target porque es estado literalmente muriendo para comprar el dispositivo limpiador facial de Olay (que también es súper increíble, te diré más adelante). Luego el domingo fui a comer con mi otra tía y sus dos niños, mi hijo ama estar con ellos. Me encontre con mi hermana Yasi para tomar nuestras fotos que era una locura intentar batir la puesta de sol, pero hicimos lo mejor que pudimos, siempre nos hemos divertido tomando fotos. Así que fue bastante mi fin de semana. Ughh ya me recordé que necesito empezar las compras de Navidad. Nadie más ha esperado hasta el último minuto???

Esto es lo que llevaba a cenar con mis padres. Me encantan los pantalones a medida y los tacones negros elegantes con una diversión más suelto arriba. ¿Creo que fue equilibrado, que piensan ustedes? Realmente amo a este combinación de color amarillo mostaza casi oro con el azul y el cinto de leopardo.

December Wish List

Is it me or did December just creep up? I hate to admit but adults were right when they used to tell me that once you grew up time went by so fast, Ohh where has the year gone? Well neways I must admit December is a very fun filled month. Plenty of fun events which means lots of dressing up. I love getting glitzy and glam but It is not realistic in my life to do that every day. So whenever an opportunity presents its self for me to dress up I take it! You will notice by the items chosen in my Dec. wish list that I love sparkle, glitter, and anything shiny really
Okay so I really want a really pretty but classy sequence dress that does not look cheap, I think this would be ideal for NYE. A gold skirt with a elegant top would be my ideal outfit for my office Christmas party with black nylons and subtle but sexy black shoes. Any faux fur piece would be the ultimate jacket for the holiday parties. Now blazers are one of my favorite things to wear because you can dress up any outfit in 0.5 seconds by throwing on a chic blazer which is why I really want either a white tuxedo jacket or a sequence one. In addition to blazers being outfit "picker uppers" I think a very cute well fitted tweed jacket would do the same. I don't have anything close to a tweed jacket but I have wanted one for a while. December is always a super budget month for me because of Christmas and all the other stuff going on which means if I don’t find my wish list items within my budget I won’t buy them :( which is why added the accessories. A statement necklace can freshen up any outfit I already have in the lost world aka my closet. A glitzy headpiece and glittered pair of heels can turn any LBD into a glam dress for a night out. Do you but new stuff for the holidays or work your closet?
