How To Get Shinier Hair

This is a bit of a different post, but I wanted to share with you what I've started doing for the last couple of weeks. Fashion is about the overall look, not only clothes and shoes. You have to wear the right thing, have nice hair and wear a signature perfume. Everything counts. 
I've always had a really complicated type of hair. When I was a little girl I used to have really, really straight hair. My mom used to struggle because she couldn't get my hair to stay up in a ponytail. When I started growing up, it began to get thicker and not so straight. I used to get this really awful knots at the base of my head and I would stay for like an hour in the shower and use a whole bottle of conditioner to get it out...it was awful. Anyways, hair gets damaged very easily. Because we wash it everyday, the chemicals in the products we use, the heat from straighteners and blow dryers...etc etc etc. I get split ends very easily...even if I've just had a haircut, a week later split ends will start showing up. My hair gets really dry and I don't even put it through a rough time that often. I've come to the conclusion that it's because I wash it every single day. I know it's bad but I won't stop doing it, since I exercise every day, it'd be disgusting if I didn't wash it afterwards. 
So if you're like me and you have to put a lot of effort for your hair to be shiny and not as damaged...I have the solution for you! 

1. Only wash your hair daily if, like me, there's absolutely no way not to do it. If you have no problem with not washing it every day, do it every 3 days or every other day...you'll notice the big change!

Girly With An Edge

So the weather has been crazy the last couple of days. It's been really really hot lately, but all of a sudden...it started raining yesterday. Because of this, I didn't know what to wear today. It was really hot in the morning but the sky was so cloudy and dull, it looked like it definitely was going to rain, so this was a problem. I went for a skirt and a leather jacket. I only wore the jacket until it started to be chilly, before that the outfit was perfect for the heat. I think this is a really good outfit for this in between seasons awkward period. It doesn't really say spring, but it doesn't say winter either. I love mix and matching styles; the girly skirt with rather tough pieces like the leather jacket and the booties.

How To: Dress Up Jeans

Maybe one of these days we'll need to dress up nicely, maybe for a special ocassion, for a job interview, to go to work, a dinner party, to go out, etc. And maybe we wish we could stick with our good ol' pair of jeans but we think it's not appropiate because they're too casual and laid back. Let me state that I don't recommend wearing jeans for a job interview, like at all, unless you know the company that's interviewing you is cool with that kind of dress code, otherwise if you don't want to wear something boring like a pant suit, stick with a nice pencil skirt and blazer. Anyway, good news!! You can still be comfy in your jeans and look more put together by dressing them up! 
I think that if you wear jeans and you pair them with pumps...there you have it. You will look that much more put together. Heels are so versatile, they really can make or break an outfit. However, you can dress them that much more by wearing a nice blouse and a blazer or cardigan and putting loads of though into your accesories!

*Remember that this Angela and Roi handbag is made out of vegan leather and if that's not enough, they will donate a percentage of what you pay for it to Childhood Cancer. I think it's an amazing cause, plus it's gorgeous!

Dress For Less: Fashion Week 2015

We've seen wonderful fashion both, in and outside the runway. It's been really hard to keep up with all the fashion we've had the past couple of weeks, New York, Milan, London... it's too much.
A few of my favorite collections have been Burberry Prorsum, Topshop Uniquee, Emilia Wickstead and David Koma in London; Marchesa, Hugo Boss, Zac Posen and Tommy Hilfiger in New York.

As always, we see great fashion not only on the runway, but in the streets. I've followed fashion week through the eyes of fellow bloggers and I think that's the best way to do it. If you want to get into it, you should check out Chiara Ferragni, Kristina Bazan, Pamela Allier and Sofia Lascurain's blogs, they've been doing a great job!

Oscars 2015 best and worst dressed

How great was last night's show? From the red carpet full of amazing fashion to the very end when Neil Patrick Harris read his predictions. It was a really entertaining evening!!
I thought this red carpet was wonderful, one of the best in the last few years. Do you agree?
Let's see what you think of my best and worst dressed!

Best dressed

1. Lupita Nyong'o i Calvin Klein
I'm still in awe about this dress made out of 6 thousand pearls. I literally have no words for it. I loved it! It's the best dress Lupita's ever worn. The contrast with her skin color is amazing. I really have no words.

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking!


It's been really hot here the past couple of days and I've been able to finally wear skirts without tights! For us, this weather means winter's over, even if it officially ends until march 21st.
I love florals, even if they're not groundbreaking. I loved this skirt when I saw it at the store because of the print, the colors and the layers.

How to Wear Ankle Booties in Spring

We're only a month away from Spring, yay! Everyone who's experiencing really cold weather must be thrilled for it! I think Spring is my second favorite season, after fall, because it's so pretty outside. It's not as hot as in the summer, flowers bloom, everything is green and it rains! I love rain... plus, it's my birthday!
However sometimes we don't want to let go of all those pretty fall/winter clothes... so here's a couple ideas on how you can wear ankle booties in spring! I think that ankle booties are great for every season, you can stay warm in them but they won't make you too hot when it's nicer outside!
