The Haircut



Back in August I dedicated a post to American in Paris blogger papierdenorma's haircut. Since then, I've been contemplating my own "hair transformation." I went to the Bumble&Bumble salon in downtown New York and bid adieu to my long locks.

Jamberry Nail Wraps


So lately I've been polishing my nails pretty late at night. After freshening up my talons, I frequently undergo battle with my heavy eyelids during the drying process. Despite ALL of that fighting, I wake up most mornings with crinkled or smudged nailpolish.

To help ease my at home manicuring woes, my friend sent over some Jamberry nail wrap samples.

Jamberry nail wraps are sheets of colored and printed vinyl strips that adhere to nails with a little bit of heat. I loved the prints and decided to do a test run on one fingernail.

Elena Rudenko

New York Fashion Week has come and gone. From September 4 through September 11, the city of New York buzzed with the frenetic energy of fashion shows, post show events and fabulously dressed fashion lovers. But the show that we all missed was that of emerging Ukrainian fashion designer Elena Rudenko.

Brand spanking new to New York, this Kiev-born women's wear designer was unable to send her Spring-Summer 2015 designs down a runway. But fear not fashion aficionados, she invited Fashionlingual to her studio to give us the scoop on her latest collection.

Retro Flowers


For today's outfit post, we stopped by the Target Community Park in Brooklyn. In this concrete jungle, it's nice to find some green space.


And since I was looking for greenery and some nature, it was only fitting that I wear something GREEN.


I love the fitted waist and A-line skirt of this dress. It's the perfect combination for an hourglass figure.

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy?


Back in 2008 -as I sat in a dark movie theater watching the Coco Before Chanel movie- I was struck by the scene when she cut her hair and uttered the above cited quote.

Maybe that quote stuck with me then because I was a young woman on the brink of change...I had just moved from Chicago to Madrid. But isn't it a little true? A drastic physical change CAN really reflect a great transition.

Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink


It's Friday and all I want to do is eat popcorn and watch a chick flick. Don't judge me! I love going out and I REALLY love my friends, but sometimes I love a night in even more.

My movie selection for the night is Pretty in Pink. I made the above look to honor the girly color and one of my favorite 80's flicks. 

Here are some of my favorite scenes from the movie.




Happy Friday!
