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...

10 Tips On How To Pack For Any Ocassion

I've been thinking lately that I suck at packing. Honestly, I really do. I'm one of those girls who no matter where she's going she needs a ridiculously big suitcase, who ends up wearing the exact same 3 things for the whole trip even if she packed 3 months worth of outfits. 

My biggest fear when arriving to the airport is my bag being overweight and having to pay an outrageous amount of money to take things I'm not even going to use. My suitcases have had overweight a lot of times, some of them I've been lucky and the plane wasn't at full capacity, so they didn't charge me... but still... how stupid is it to pay for stuff that I'm not even going to take out of the suitcase? 

For the ones that have been following my blog for a while now, you know that last summer I worked at a summer camp. Well, this year I'm going back and I've learned a few things about packing. For those who are wondering: yes, last year my bag was overweight, because heaven forbid I didn't have enough clothes for 2 months...and yes, of course I ended up wearing the same 5 tops and shorts my whole stay there.

How To Wear Joggers With Heels

First of all let me tell you how sorry I am for being so MIA. It's been a crazy past couple of weeks because of final projects and exams but I'm finally done and I'm off for the summer! *does the HSM Summer Time dance*
It looks like all the stress and tiredness kicked in because I've been in bed sick the last couple of days but I'm finally feeling better and ready to get back on track! 

As much as you love fashion, sometimes don't you just feel lazy and wish you could stay in pajamas or joggers all day long without a care in the world? Well, with this trend that has been going around, I guess now we can!! I don't know why anyone hadn't thought of this before and I thank the person who came up with this. I would've never though about wearing heels with joggers, what about you? 
Obviously, you can't wear heels with any joggers out there...I don't think this would look good with just any pair of joggers. They should be skinny and chic. 

Here are some outfits for you to get inspired, stay comfy and chic all day long!

Casual Friday done right!

Be Fashionable, Be Green: Conscious Exclusive by H&M

We celebrated Earth Day yesterday and what better way to honor it than talking about sustainable fashion? 

When manufacturing clothes, there are certain things to be taken into account in order for a garment to be considered "sustainable". These factos include the sounce of fibers, the way they are treated to convert them into a textile, the workng environment of those who produce the materials, the overall carbon footprint, etc. 
The fabrics that are used in sustainable fashion are those of which fibers come directly from nature and don't involve chemical processes to produce them. Cotton, wool, cashmere, silk, hemp, to mention a few. Another way to be sustainble with fabrics is to recycle old ones. 

The fashion industry pollutes the environment a lot because of all the chemicals that are involved in the manufacturing process of clothes. Nowadays, we have to be much more conscious about the world we live in because we only have one. 

Sustainable fashion doesn't have to be ugly, not at all. We can see this clearly with the collection that H&M launched in the last few days: Conscious Exclusive.

Things You Need To Know About Mexican Fashion

As I've mentioned before, mexican fashion is really starting to take off and the talent these great designers have is amazing and I wish they were better known around the world already! 
There are many things that people work to make better in this country and others that might seem irrelevant to some, like fashion. Of course there are public matters that should be fixed with much more urgency, like poverty, for example. However, fashion is an art. Everything behind it involves a whole culture...and culture is a big part (maybe the biggest) of who we are as a country. We have amazing designers in Mexico, and they should be getting much more credit for their work around the world. 

These days, there are many great things people have been doing to bring Mexico to the world through fashion. One of the most important ones, I think, is the website called Mexicouture. This platform was founded by Sara Galindo, one of the most important mexican fashion figures, former Executive Fashion Editor of ELLE Mexico, executive director and judge at Elle Mexico DiseƱa (a TV show similar to Project Runway) and much more. This website is a place where you can get to know the most important mexican fashion designers, you can buy their clothes, etc.

How To Dress Like a Model Off Duty

Models don't look like models 24/7 (okay, yeah, they do no matter what. But still...). They're not dressed for the runway the whole time. If you take a look at street style photographs of Models, you will notice that what they're wearing reflects two main things: style and comfort. Which is what we want when we dress, right? Sometimes we might ditch the comfort for fashion's sake, but what if you could dress really fashionably for your every day life, and be comfortable at the same time? You just have to channel your inner Cara Delevigne!

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 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'll notice the big change!
