 If there is something better than an slouchy sweater , is a sweater that is oversized enough to wear it off shoulder. The trick to get this fit is to go up a size. I actually took a gamble when I ordered online this sweater because it is "one size fits all" , so I was surprised when It arrived because it is perfect! If you're looking for an oversized sweater this is it.

Los sweaters holgados son lo mas comodo, pero es aun mejor cuando los ordenas una talla mas grande para lograr ese look de hombros caidos que se ve super chic. Este sweater es "talla unica" y couando lo ordene estaba super preocupada de que viniera pequeno asi que me sorprendi bastante cuando me llego y era perfecto!

I love to pair my baggy sweater with high waisted jeans to balance the loo and look a little bit more put together. When you're a petite playing with proportiorns is key. Adding some OTK boots in the same color as the jeans elongate the figure too. My OTK boots are perfect for petites too, for a reference I'm only 5'2.

Me encanta combinar mis sueteres holgados con pantalones a la cintura para balancear el outfit y al mismo tiempo acentuar mi figura. Cuando eres "petite" jugar con las proporciones es super importante. Otro tip es combinar tus zapatos con el color de los jeans. En este caso, use botas a la rodilla y esto hace que las piernas se me vean mas largas tambien. Por cierto, mis botas son perfectas para chaparritas, como referencia yo mido 1.58

The 6 dresses you need this season.

holiday-dresses
Hi Guys! How is this holiday season going? Mine has been great and packed with events left and right. Many of those happen right after work, and my mornings start trying to find an outfit that can take me from the desk to the next holiday party in style.  I've found that the easiest way to dress up for this type of situations is to wear a pretty dress and then dress it down by adding a cardi, a blazer  or another office appropiate piece.

Anyway , Here are a few of my favorite dresses. 
--
Hola! Que tal les esta yendo esta temporada de celebraciones? La mia ha sido super movida y llena de fiestas, muchas de las cuales suceden enseguida despues del trabajo, por lo que mis mananas comienzan buscando un outfit que pueda llevarse de la oficina a la fiesta. Lo que me ha funcionado es usar un vestido lindo en conjunto con algun cardigan o blazer.




1. Velvet Wrap Dress. There is nothing more classic & sophisticated than a wrap dress. This one is velvet and that's always better. You can pair it with tights and a pair of ankle boots and you're good to go.
--
Nada mas clasico que un vestido "wrap". Este es de gamuza asi que es aun mejor. Lo puedes combinar con medias y botines y listo!

2. Long Sleeve Dress. I got this dress recently and I love it because it's really versatile. I've worn it with tights, and also with dress pants (must try!). I recommend you to go up two sizes. I'm usually a 4 but I ordered this in 8.
--
Compre este vestido hace poco y me encanta porque es muy versatil. Lo he usado con medias pero tambien encima de pantalones de vestir!

3. Ruffled Hem Dress. This would look super cute with a white button down shirt underneath, or paired with a boyfriend blazer.
--
Este vestido se veria super lindo con una blusa blanca de botones por debajo, o tambien combinada con un blazer.


4. Fit and Flare printed dress. To tone down the print on this dress I would pair it with a black cardi.
--
Para bajarle el tono al estampado de este vestido, puedes combinarlo con un cardigan en color negro

5. Plaid dress (30 % off with codes friends). Nothing screams Christmas like red plaid. I love this dress because it can be worn multiple ways.
--
Nada me recuerda mas a la navidad que el estampado de cuadros en color rojo. Ademas este vestido puede ser usado de muchas maneras, lo que siempre es un plus

6. Sleveeless Black Dress . A must have!  In case you missed , I styled the perfect Little Black Dress three ways on my last post. You definitely need to check that one out you're looking for more ways to wear that trustworthy LBD.
--
Super escencial! Si te lo perdiste, en mi ultimo post hable sobre como usar un vestido negro sin mangas de distintas maneras.

3 ways to wear an sleveless Little Black Dress when it's cold outside


little-black-dress-three-ways

The LBD is one my favorite wardrobe staples and I've talked about it before in this post , and the other one where I made a REMIX with 6 different outfits wearing my various black dresses

But I decided to bring the subject back because I found "The Perfect Dress" ... literally, that is the name of the dress and it's from Lindsay Nicholas New York . This dress comes with a hefty price tag but I think this is one of those pieces that worth invest your money on, because it's very well made , fits like a dream, and you can wear it in so many different ways  throughout all four seasons.

 I also want to point out that this comes in petite sizes (I'm wearing a M petite) and there is also a half-sleeeve version . I decided to get the sleeveless version because it's way more versatile since you can also layer things underneath giving you more freedom when styling it. 


Let's move on to the looks!

El vestidito negro es una de mis prendas favoritas, y ya he hablado bastante de eso en este post, y este otro donde mostre 6 diferentes maneras en que usado mis vestidos negros .

Quise traer este tema de regreso porque encontre "el vestido perfecto" ... en verdad asi se llama el vestido que llevo en el post de hoy y es de Lindsay Nicholas New York . El unico pero que le pongo a este vestido es el precio, sin embargo si creo que es una prenda en la que vale la pena invertir porque la calidad es increible y ademas es una pieza que se pueda usar de mil maneras distintas. Tambien tengo que comentar que viene en talla "petite" (estoy usando la talla M petite) y tambien viene con mangas. Sin embargo yo me decidi por la version sin mangas porque me parece mucho mas versatil, ya que se pueden agregar capas por debajo y cambiar por completo el estilo del vestido.

Ahora vamos a ver los outfits!

EVERYDAY

A turtleneck top + sleveless dress is a very chic and cozy combo that can be worn for any ocassion. (This turtleneck top ) I also added a belt to shorten the dress a little bit and accentuate my waist. The addition of the OTK boots makes the outfit feel more put together and modern. 
--
Una blusa de cuello de tortuga debajo de un vestido sin mangas es una combinacion super calientita y chic que puede usarse practicamente en cualquier ocasion. Yo agregue un cinturon delgado para acortar el vestido un poco y acentuar mi cintura. Las botas altas completan el look y lo hacen ver mas moderno.

DATE NIGHT 

The easiest way to wear this dress is by itself paired with your favorite pumps (I absolutely love my lace up heels), and some long earrings to accesorisse. If you want to add a pop of color, I would add some shoes like these , or leopard pumps too!

A camel coat is the perfect complement for this dress during chilly days.
--
La manera mas facil de usar este vestido es  combinarlo con tus zapatillas favoritas (a mi me encantan estas) y aretes largos para accesorizar . Si quieres agregar un poco de color puedes usar unas zapatillas como estas o de estampado de leopardo.

Para terminar el look,  en los dias frias el complemento ideal es un abrigo color camel.

BUSSINESS CASUAL

This dress has the perfect lenght to wear it to the office too. For a polished chic look layer a button down shirt, and complete the look with oxfords, ballet flats or OTK boots with  tights if you work in an office with extremely cold A/C.

--
Este vestido tambien tiene el largo perfecto para llevar a la oficina. A mi me gusta combinarlo con una camisa de botones y completar el look con zapatos bajos de estilo oxford, o botas a la rodilla si es que hace mucho frio.

Wedding dress & accesories try on at David's Bridal

Thank you David's Bridal for Sponsoring this post.



davids-bridal-wedding-dress-accesories

Hey Guys!! Today's post is super exciting for me because It's time to talk about WEDDING DRESSES!! Some girls know exactly the style of dress they want but that wasn't my case at all. I had to visit a lot of stores and try on different styles to get a better Idea of what I was looking for in a dress. Then one of my co-workers who is also engaged, showed me the dress she bought on David's  Bridal and I decided to book an appointment with them right away. Little did I know that I was hours away from fiding my dream dress.

 White by Vera is a collection designed by Vera Wang for David's Bridal at affordable prices.


I wasn't planing to wear a veil, but I changed my mind when I tried on this beautiful cathedral lenght veil.







davids-bridal-wedding-dress-accesories


Today I'm sharing my experience trying on wedding dresses at their store on Eslton Ave, Chicago. Of course I tried on dozens of dresses, but today I'm showing you two of the dresses from the New Spring 2018 collection. My stylist decided to style them in two different ways with different accesories to show me how something as simple as a headpiece can enhance your dress and help you to get the look you're going for.


davids-bridal-wedding-dress-accesories

The fist dress I tried was this Tulle V-Neck Ball Gown (WG3877). This dress has beautiful beaded lace apliques on the bodice and skirt, and a grossgrain waistband that helps to accentuate your figure.  I've never though I would like this dress but after I trying it on I knew why everyone loves this style. It does make you feel like a princess! 

For the first look we choose very delicate rose gold accesories. This filigree and crystal sash paired with drop arrings of the same material and a pear stone necklaceCrystal high heel sandals and an elbow lenght veil completed the look.

For the second look, we decided to go in full princess style with a floral crystal Tiara and a tulle cathedral veil with floral apliques. We added more crystal details with the sash, the shoes and this beautiful jewelry set.

 The second dress we styled was this Lace Halter Sheath gown (WG3883). This style is my favorite for it's flowy silhouette and boho vibe. I think this dress would be perfect for a beach wedding!

To add a little bit of glam to this simple dress we added a crystal ribbon shash, a crystal headband and a fingertip veil with lace appliques .

The lace appiques on the veil are like a frame for the beautiful back of this dress.

Then we complimented the romantic boho style of this dress with a halo headhpiece and just a tiny crystal shash to accentuate the waist.
