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.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico SS16: Day 1

Fashion week Mexico Spring Summer 2016 began yesterday, opening up with Pineda Covalin's show. Before the show started, Cory Crespo, the director of the Marketing agency that runs Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico, Coloürs, and Beatriz Calles, director of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico, gave a speech and told us how they made some changes to the runway. The runway in this edition is now wider than before, breaking international Fashion Week rules. "I hope we don't get in trouble" they said laughing. They also told us how now, every mexican designer that seems promising, will be showing their collections on the runway, hoping that this will take them to succeed all over the world.

The collections that were showed yesterday were, Pineda Covalín, Macario Jiménez, Benito Santos and Sandra Weil. Every single collection was beautiful. Full of color and gorgeous silhouettes.

Fashion Lessons Straight Out Of Mean Girls

Mean Girls will forever be one of my favorite movies and I will be quoting it for the rest of my life. It's not all about yelling "you can't sit with us" to our friends to seem funny, or getting way too excited when it's Wednesday and you happen to be wearing pink, or feeling very fetch everytime you say "the limit does not exist" in calculus class. Mean girls also gave us some fashion lessons we should take into account. And since it's October 3rd, what better day to talk about them than today?

Vogue's Fashion's Night Out: Street Style Diaries

I love street style. It amazes me how much people can either stay true to themselves and their own personal style, or how easily they can become fashion victims. 
How you dress says a lot about your personality and interests. It's one of the first things people notice when they meet you, therefore it's really important. 

This past saturday I attended Vogue's Fashion's Night Out, as you already know from my previous post (click here), and I came across some really cute outfits, as well as some things I would never be caught dead on! For me, less is alwayays more. Minimalistic outfits, simple prints... that's me!

New York, I love You

Hi everyone! 
I'm so happy to be writing and to be with you again after a couple of months. As I mentioned before, I was abroad working at a summer camp for the second year, which was absolutely amazing! I made so many friends from all over the world that I'm sure I will have lifelong relationships with. Such an incredible experience. I also spent a few days before and after camp in my favorite city in the world: New York. 

From today on I will be posting regularly again, so don't stop coming back for more! I leave you some pictures of my trip, enjoy!

Choosing the Best Dress for your Shape

Prom, graduation, homecoming...these are all great ocassions that give you an excuse to buy a pretty dress and really, really dress up! Homecoming season is upon us, it’s the perfect time to start looking for that dream gown and making sure you look like a thousand bucks. In order to achieve this, you must know your body type and know what suits you best. 

Here I give you a few hints on choosing homecoming dresses that best suit your body type! I hope you like it!  

Petite Body Shape

If you have a petite frame, you need to be looking for dresses with narrower cuts. Structured bodices will add shape to smaller figures while beaded sweetheart necklines add dimension and texture. For the illusion of curves, choose gowns with wrapped or pleated bodices and gracefully flowing skirts that float to the floor or have ruffles spinning down your back.

Comfy Chic Outfit

The weather has been absolutely crazy these past couple of weeks. It's actually been kind of cold, cloudy and rainy, but all of a sudden the sun comes out and we're burning with a thousand degrees again. I hate it. So I'm on my summer break already, like most of you so I haven't been up to much and these days I just want to wear comfortable outfits. So today I decided to wear something that looked chic but was still comfy. What else can we ask for in lazy, rainy days?

What to Wear to the Airport

It's summer and most of us are already on vacation, probably planning an exciting trip or counting the days to hop on an airplane already! Wearing the perfect outfit for the airport is extremely important no matter how long your flight will be. You're going to be sitting either in between 2 people or next to someone in a tiny seat for at least 2 or 3 hours and you need to be comfortable. You're probably going to be uncomfortable already, so why wear uncomfortable clothes on top of it? Also, think about all the walking, dragging bags and all the annoying things you have to do before and after the flight...comfort is a must. However, comfort doesn't mean unstylish. I promise, it doesn't.  

I hope you like these outfit ideas and are willing to give them a go! I know I will...
