1 Outfit 2 Ways

Do you ever wonder how you could make the most out of your wardrobe? I think we all ponder over that quite a few times a week... Before I started blogging I thought I  had literally no clothes whatsoever, however, now that I've started doing outfit posts more often, I've come to realize that my clothes are much more versatile than I ever thought. I've discovered that accessories can totally change an outfit and make it a whole new thing for a whole different occasion. 

Check out how I wore the same outfit in two completely different ways by just changing the accessories.

Valentine's Day Ideas

It's that time of the year again. The day that you can't stop looking forward to if you're in a relationship, and the day you're dreading the most if you're not: Valentine's Day. 

Some people might think that Valentine's Day is completely overrated and that it's only an excuse to make people buy stuff they don't need. I'm a Marketing major and I'm well aware of all the Marketing that's involved on this day... but honestly? I don't care. I love Valentine's Day! I liked it even when I wasn't in a relationship. What's better than being given candy and flowers and having someone demonstrate how much they love you? 

If you're in a relationship like me, you're probably already stressing thinking about what you're going to do and what you're going to get for your boy. Boys have it so easy... Romantic dinner, flowers and chocolate and they will have us drooling over them. Because of this, I've put together a little gift guide to help you in this process:

Golden Globes 2016: Best and Worst Dressed

Last night's Golden Globe Awards was filled with amazing fashion! I saw so many beautiful dresses I absolutely adored. Something that got on my nerves, though, was that while I was watching the red carpet on E! was that Giuliana Rancic and Ryan Seacrest basically forgot to ask 90% of the celebrities who they were wearing. I mean we could find out in some other ways, but what's the red carpet for, but for fashion, right? 

We saw a lot of yellow dresses like JLo's, America Ferrera's and Lila Kirke's. I thought it was a pretty odd color to wear to a red carpet because I associate it with day time. I think it was amazing that JLo finally wore something different than the usual Zuhair Murad revealing gown. Anyhow, the dress was still the same old shape as always. I think she needs to innovate more in the upcoming red carpet events. 

We also saw so many white dresses. I'm not the biggest fan of this trend either, to be honest. I think there's a really thin line between a white gown being elegant and tacky. However, there were a couple beautiful white dresses on the red carpet. For example, Lily James was wearing a beautiful white Marchesa gown, as well as Alicia Vikander in a Louis Vuitton. 

My favorite trend of the night were the sequins. Coming up you will probably see that a lot of my best dressed were wearing sequined gowns. I just think that sequins are really hard to wear on a daily basis and when you have the opportunity to go to an event such as a red carpet, you should go all out and what better way to do so than by wearing sequins. Right? 

Best Dressed

1. Kate Bosworth in Dolce & Gabbana

I don't know  how she looks so chill, that dress must weight a thousand pounds. I'm not sure what it was about this dress that made me obsess over it. It probably had to do with this instagram picture I saw in Kate's account. The pink sequins looked so beautiful and the color goes perfectly with her skin tone. She looked so elegant and chic.

How To Wear Over-the-Knee Boots

HAPPY 2016 EVERYONE!!! I hope you had the most wonderful holiday season with your loved ones! I had an amazing time with my family in this little town near home, where we rented a big house for all of us and spent Christmas and a few extra days over there. It was amazing. How did you spend your Holiday Season? What are your resolutions for this new year?

This was a very warm winter and that inspired this outfit. Over-the-knee boots have been a big thing these past few months and I've owned this pair for quite a while and hadn't worn them in a long time, but now they've made a comeback and they're back on my feet!

Best Fashion Moments of 2015

We had some great fashion this year. Every year I think "there can't be something more amazing/outrageous/ugly/(insert any article you want) that that" and turns out, I'm always wrong. Every year fashion keeps giving me more moments to remember. 
I was amazed not only by the red carpet season, but also by Fashion Week. How crazy and absolutely brilliant was Chanel's ariplane show? Like I never thought Karl Laggerfeld could beat the supermarket show, but he certainly did this past season! He's a genius, what can I say? 

Anyways, about these great moments I keep going on and on about...

Rihanna wearing Giambattista Vali at the Grammy Awards. This is the ultimate sweet sixteen dress every girl would want to pull off. I remember when Rihanna was late to the red carpet, well she certainly made a statement being the last one on it wearing this fabulous dress, right? 
Cheers to you, Rihanna! I don't think anyone else can pull this off like you did.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It's finally my favorite time of the year again! I've been on winter break for a few days now and I've been doing nothing but chilling. Finals can be very tough, especially when all you want is a break! 

This time of the year is my favorite because a lot of things. First of all I love the weather. It never gets really cold here, but at least it's colder than the rest of the year...This year though, it's been so hot it's not even funny. However, it's been getting a little chillier this week! I also love the colors of Fall, I love the leaves on the ground, fall fashion is definitely my favorite. I'm such a sucker for Christmas too. Putting up the Christmas Tree and all the decorations and wrapping presents are my favorite things in the whole wide world.

Learn to Love Yourself: Positive Body Image

Body image is whatever pops into your mind when you see yourself in the mirror or when you think about your own body. What are your thoughts on your appearance? What do you really think about your hair, your height, your weight? How do you feel in your own skin? As you read this, did positive or negative thoughts come into your mind? Nowadays, people, especially women, are very self conscious about their looks. A negative body image can have really bad outcomes such as developing eating disorders, which result in poor health, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and so on.

7 Black Friday Shopping Tips

As you guys already know, I'm from Mexico, therefore I've never experienced an actual Black Friday. Here in Mexico, we have our own little version of it, however I don't think it's as crazy as Black Friday. Even if you're not from the United States, you can still take advantage from these amazing Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers, thanks to this little thing called online shopping. 

Every shopaholic out there is probably already thinking of all the stuff they not only want, but need in their lives and how they're going to get them this following weekend. You're all probs drooling over all the clothes and shoes you're going to score. However, it's very easy to get lost in all the offers and madness. Hence why I bring you these little tips that will hopefully make your Black Friday experience a little less hectic and stressing. 

1. Budget
When you see those huge white letters over a red backdrop that spell "SALE" in every shop's windows, your heart probably starts racing and you start getting all jumpy and excited. It's very easy to get lost in that sea of discounts and offers. The whole point of Black Friday is getting stuff for a much better price than usual and not ending bankrupt. So, before you leave your house for your Black Friday shopping, make sure you set a budget for yourself and make the commitment to stick to it. If you have no self control whatsoever, maybe even take cash out and leave your credit card at home where it's safe from that crazy person that will most definitely take over your mind and body.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico SS16: Day 2

My second day at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week was great as well as day 1, which you can read about here. I attended the fashion shows of Simple by Trista, Anabella Bergero, Alexia Ulibarri, Kris Goyri and Cihuah. These designers are so talented and amazing at putting up a show. My favorite show of the day was probably Alexia Ulibarri's. What I loved the most about her collections were the prints she used on her clothes. So beautiful.
