The Simple Things

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

The cold weather has made its way down south and it has been very cold these last few days. I have made it my mission to try to stay warm as I get cold easily. I look ridicules with the extra layers of clothes I wear every day, lol. Anyway, this is a simple look I pulled together yesterday. Sorry the photos are grainy, but I took them towards the night and my camera ( since it doesn’t have the flash) isn’t the best at night.

The outfit

There is something about the cold weather that makes every one wear dark clothes. When its cold, I only gravitate towards all things dark, deep and rich in color. I bought the top on eBay and although it is warm and it is a nice shirt, I hate the sleeves ( hence why i rolled them up). The sleeve are not even 3/4 they’re just weird, the cut is wrong. I am going to fix this issue by perhaps making it 3/4 and taking the fabric in a bit. I paired it with faux-leather jeans, black booties and black purse. I added a bit of color by wearing a nice dark red lip.

Cost of Outfit: $53.00

  • Top: $5.00
  • Jeans: $25.00
  • purse: $3.00
  • Boots: $20.00

Burrrr! It’s cold

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

Some of you might know that I live in Miami, FL. Miami is known for its beautiful beaches, culture, the cuban sandwich & the cuban coffee, along with its rich history and ties to Latin America. Many know it for its beautiful weather so me saying that its cold, probably gave a lot of you a laugh, but seriously it was cold today. I wasn’t built for the cold weather. I love the warmth of the sun and love our endless summers. However, mother nature decided to blow cold air for us today and it is cold; at least for this warm blooded mammal lol.

Outfit Details:

Since it was a cold day today, I opted for the basics. I put on my boyfriend jeans, with a plain white v-neck, booties and a nice warm coat. I added the necklace just as a statement piece and of course red lips ( I love a good bold lipstick).

Total Cost of Outfit: $122.97

  • Top: $5.00
  • Jeans: $9.97
  • Shoes: $100.00
  • Coat: $6.00
  • Purse/Clutch: $2.00

Velvet Bows And Wild Roses

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

Today’s look is very vintage-y. I love the retro feel this outfit has; it’s very 50’s with a modern twist. The color on the skirt is so vibrant and I just love the gorgeous velvet bow that the skirt comes with. It’s the minor unexpected details of things that I often find myself loving more. Since I wanted the skirt to be the “it” piece of this outfit I opted for a navy long sleeve shirt and I fell in love with the peter pan collar of the shirt. The collar has a lovely lace detail that I simply forgot to take pictures of. I accessorized with a cute floral ring, my black clutch and sunglasses ( which I am currently obsessed with).

Art Basel #ootd

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

As my last post, I made it to Art Basel on Sunday night, the closing event. I have to say that every year that I attend Art Basel it just gets bigger and bigger. The art is amazing at Art Basel, there is sooo much to see and to experience. I took a few shots of the evening, see them here.

The Outfit

So, originally I had planned for a whole different outfit but being that it was chilly out I had to switch. Instead, I wore this comfy turtle neck shirt, faux-leather jeans, black heels and this gorgeous back. I pulled my hair back in a pony tail to keep it sleek. The heels are actually ankle straps but I removed the ankle straps to make them look like simple pumps. I added a matching bold lip to complete my look.

Total cost of outfit: $68.00

  • Top: $3.00
  • Jeans: $25.00

This is my second sparkly look of the week. I just love the holiday season because I look glam most of the time since there are so many holiday parties, happy hours and social gatherings.I really love the way this romper fits, it isn’t too tight or too loose. It is also a very versatile romper since it can be worn in cold ( just add leggings, boots and a nice warm coat) and warm climates.

Outfit Details:

This entire outfit was purchased at Goodwill! That means this was cheap and chic. I am not too big on accessories so I wore a nice bold bracelet, earnings and a bold lip color. There are people that would say a nice necklace would have looked great and I agree but I am not big on necklaces, that is why I wore my hair down. I added these gorgeous gladiator type heels and my thrifted clutch that I can’t stop wearing.

Total cost of outfit: $14.50

The Sequence Of Sequin

SONY DSC

Hi Loves!

It’s no surprise that the holidays are officially here and we are all shopping for that perfect holiday outfit. This only means, bring on the sequins, glitters and everything that sparkles. H&M, Forever 21, TopShop and every other retailer has lined-up all of their most glittery and sparkly clothes. I have a few shinning pieces in my closet and I can’t wait to sport it all out.

The Outfit:

I really wanted to wear this gorgeous dress I scored the other day at Goodwill, it is dress is part chiffon and part faux-leather. I  remembered I had this very cute motto “raw cut” jacket that had silver and black sequins so I decided to give it a go. To keep the black on black look I paired the outfit with black heels and a nice oragne-y/red lip color ( I scored 15% off Forever 21 on Black Friday, yes, I went shopping on black Friday, after I said I wouldn’t lol).

Total Outfit Cost: 

  • Dress: $5.00
  • Jacket: $30.00
  • Shoes: $25.00

90’s Grunge

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

So today I totally did a throw back look; the nineties. That time when long messy “beach” hair, ripped jeans, black chunky boots, t-shirts & plaid shirts were a stable to being wrapped around our waists. I guess listening to Pearl Jam back to back may cause this to happen ( by the way, Pearl Jam might just be my FAVORITE band of all time!).

The Outfit

Pretty much everything here was purchased at Goodwill, except the boots. The shirt is actually “supposed” to be a cropped sweater BUT on my petite frame it fits more like a “normal” shirt so I tucked it in. The skirt is high waisted with gorgeous gold and black buttons. I finished off this look with dark chunky boots, a dark lip and my oh, so cool sunnglasses.

P.S. I know I didn’t do my Monday’s Craving segment, but I have finals this week! Therefore, I had zero cravings and lots of studying. Needless to say, the only thing I am craving this week, is for 100% on all of my exams!

Happy Thanksgiving…Macklemore?

SONY DSC

Hello Friends!

It’s thanksgiving in America today! That means, lot of eating and lots of shopping. This year, I am opting out of Black Friday sales. I feel that there are so many things that I already have that I really don’t need to be out there shopping. Instead, I am going to stay home and lounge around all day; watch movies and sip on wine.

The Outfit:

Today I kept things simple as I was the one in charge of cooking again so I made sure it was a low maintenance outfit. Now, I know most of you might be wondering, “that’s simple?” But it really is. All I did was throw on some black legging jeans, a black long sleeve shirt and black boots. To make the outfit extraordinary? I just threw on this amazing faux-fur leopard vest I found at Goodwill the other day ( seen here).  Just by throwing on this vest, I made my outfit pop; it went from simple to wow. I accessorized with this amazing clutch I found at goodwill the other day ( which is sooooo pretty), a gold necklace, a gold rings, a watch and a bold dark lip. Hope you liked it.

Oh by the way, when I stepped out of the bedroom my boyfriend played: Thrift Shop by Macklemore and Ryan. LOL He said, “you look like Macklemore with that”.

Total outfit cost: 72.50

  • Top: $5.00
  • Legging Jeans: $25.00
  • Boots: $20.00
  • Vest: $2.00
  • Bag: $2.50

Faux-Leather Dress

Hi Loves!

Happy Wednesday and I hope ( for those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving) you have already finished your Thanksgiving Shopping. Today’s blog post is dedicated to this beautiful oxblood dress I bought about a year ago at Loehmans. I got an excellent deal on it since the store was closing. I wanted to add to the edginess of the dress so I added my leopard heels, although, I seriously need to stop wearing these ( but I can’t!). I added a nice matching lip and a beautiful fur coat that I thrifted not too long ago.

Total outfit Cost: $116

  • Dress: $26.00 (On Clearance originally $198!)
  • Shoes: $86.00 (On Sale)
