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!

As a kid, I dreaded my visits to the optometrist because I knew that I'd be going home with a higher prescription, i.e. thicker lens and increased teasing. I'm so happy that wearing glasses has become trendy and cool. It encourages all those near and far-sighted honeys to keep rocking their eyewear and stop straining their vision.

To promote the eyewear trend, I picked up this T-shirt...

...and paired it with some FUN pieces!

Today's look is all about polishing a T-shirt. Since the top is cropped, I paired it with a high-waisted pencil skirt.

To keep the look casual, I topped the look off with a denim jacket.

Although I love the print of the tee, I left the best for, I mean the back. A zipper that runs the length of the skirt and a messy upside down French braid bun!

This prismatic gunmetal clutch from Mary Kay ties the whole look together.

Sewing Table

Once upon a time I took sewing classes...I actually come from a family of bridal seamstresses. Although you would never guess any of that, seeing as I don't even remember how to properly string the thread through a sewing machine. Low (to non-existent) sewing level aside, I knew that this sewing table had to be my next DIY project.
