IMG_9866 This cold weather and the blizzard has forced me to stay indoors. But you won’t snow on my parade Juno, we shoot no matter what! I hope everyone is safe after yesterday’s storm, which after all was said and done, we only got a few inches in the city.  I heard that New Jersey and Long Island were hit hard, so hope you’re all safe.  This look is a mix of new and old– I’m really trying to better at shopping my closet!  The skirt is an oldie, but a goodie from ASOS.  Pencil skirts fit me the best and I one with a unique print.  I think I’m suffering from the winter blues because I’ve been craving color and fun prints.  I’m loving this sheer sweater from ASOS too, which is new– love the back with the key hole opening for a more daring style.  I wore this in Miami recently, perfect for a chilly night.  My pigalle Loubis are my go to pumps, but you already knew that! Besitos. Xo

Sheer Sweater ASOS//Skirt old but love this one//Pumps Christian Louboutin Pigalle, similar here

Este clima frío y la tormenta de nieve me ha obligado a permanecer dentro de la casa.  Espero que todos estén a salvo después de la tormenta de ayer, que después de todo que se dijo, sólo cayeron unas cuantas pulgadas en la ciudad. Me enteré que Nueva Jersey y Long Island fueron duramente golpeados, por lo que espero que todos estén bien– tengan cuidado. Esta propuesta es una mezcla de piezas nuevas y viejas.  La falda la tengo hace un tiempo y como han visto las corte lápiz son las que me quedan mejor.  Creo que este frío me tiene deprimida porque he estado anhelando ponerme piezas de colores y estampados divertidos. Mi pieza nueva es este suéter de ASOS también, la parte posterior tiene una apertura creando un estilo más atrevido.  Mis tacones pigalle Loubis son mis favoritos, pero eso ya ustedes lo sabían! Besitos. xo

Sure the Juno blizzardo has hit NYC but everything is BIEN!  Everyone made a bee line to the supermarket and stocked up on much needed essentials and today is officially a snow day.  Most people are snuggled in bed, binge watching their favorite show and hopefully taking ice cream breaks in between.  It’s a work day from home for me, but wanted to leave you with my favorite graphic sweater from ASOS– makes me feel like it’s all gonna be alright.  Paired with a bright red coat and my hubby’s beanie hat.  If you’re in NYC, please be safe.  If you’re somewhere warm, just be happy you’re not here.  Besitos.

Bueno, una gran tormenta de nieve ha golpeado Nueva York pero todo está Bien! Todo el mundo hizo fila al supermercado a comprar todos los esenciales necesarios y hoy es oficialmente un día de nieve. La mayoría de la gente hoy esta acurrucado en la cama, viendo su programa favorito y comiendo helado en cada comercial. Es un día de trabajo desde el hogar para mí, y aquí les traigo mi suéter gráfico favorito de ASOS– me hace sentir como que todo va a salir bien. En combinación con este  abrigo rojo que me fascina. Si estás en la ciudad de Nueva York, por favor cuidense mucho. Si estás en un lugar cálido, disfrutalo! Besitos. xo

Best & Worst Dressed SAG Awards

Red Carpet season was in full swing at the SAG awards where A-listers brought their A game.  Like the award show itself there were winners and unfortunately, a few losers.  Let’s start with the winning team– these ladies turned up the heat last night with their impeccable sense of style.  Here are my favorites:

Emma Stone in Dior- my absolute favorite of the night for being a risk taker and making menswear look so incredibly chic and perfect.  LOVE the dress, hair & makeup and she wore this edgy ear cuff that I need to have (well, the knock off version). #winning

Emma Stone Dior-Sag

Tied with Emma is Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli- now this is what you call a showstopper gown.  From the gorgeous royal blue hue combined with a beautiful updo and natural makeup.  This dress is another winner.

Julianna Margulies- Giambatista Vallie

Julianne Moore in Givenchy Couture proves that no other ginger can pull off emerald green like she can. Always stunning.

Julianne Moore- Givenchy

Reese Witherspoon looked flawless in this beautiful Armani white gown. Ever so classic.

Reese- Armani- Sag

Another risk taker was Tatiana Maslany in stripes, a gown by the late Oscar De la Renta.  I thought she looked flawless.

Tatiana Maslany-Oscar de la Renta

Felicity Jones looked stunning in this blush Balenciaga gown, so elegant and classic. Definitely a favorite.

Felicity JOnes balenciaga

This is my most improved look of the red carpet, I thought that Kaley Cuoco looked so pretty in this understated strapless red dress and the subtle natural makeup was the perfect complement.

Kaley Cuoco-Ramona Keveza

And my worst dressed, which totally breaks my heart because some of these ladies always make my best dressed list, but you can’t always win, right?

Where do I begin, Dascha Polanco’s dress reminds me of the drapes in my grandma’s bedroom.  When you have a curvy figure, stay away from white and fabrics that add inches.

Dascha Polanco-Worst

Not everyone can pull off jumpsuits.  Kudos for taking a risk, but it just didn’t work. Not sure if it’s the placement of the pockets or the fit– the wrinkles around the waist area are not flattering and the shoes make her look frumpy.  Sorry Julia.  I still love you.

Julia Roberts in Givenchy- Worst

This dress was not fitted properly even though she mentioned that it was sewn on her body in her hotel room.  I think they ran out of the time.  Also, she needs to color her roots, the contrast is too drastic.  Just not working for me.

Laverne Cox- Worst

Rosamund Pike- what is happening?  She really needed to be GONE.

Rosamund Pike- Worst

It hurts my heart to put Lupita in this category, but I got a headache just looking at her dress. I think Elie Saab first thought florals, then went with stripes, then said, screw it, how about both? And we got this.  Not my favorite, but can’t wait to see you at the Oscars.  Bring it home girl!

Lupita Elie Saab- Worst

IMG_9813 It’s Friday y’all!  Somehow this short week felt like a very long one.  I hit Physique57 again after a two week hiatus, it’s my favorite barre class, but it kicks my butt.  I feel like I was run over by a train as I write this post.  Just so  happy that the weekend is here, lots to look forward to! For one, after much request from you all about “how to get” my makeup looks, I’ve decided to finally start shooting video. I have all of my equipment and plan to get up and running in the next two weeks.  It’s all very overwhelming for me as I despise the way I look on video, but I’ve decided I’m giving it a shot.  It feels like a huge challenge at the moment since I need to learn how to use my new camera, figure out this lighting situation, edit my own videos— ahhhhhh!!!!  I’ll get through it.  Also, SAG awards are on Sunday, so be sure to follow my live commentary in partnership with E! via twitter @fabulatina.

About this outfit, since it’s Friday, I’m leaving you with a casual, but cool look that you can wear this weekend for cocktails or dinner.  I haven’t worn BF jeans in a while on the blog and since some gals can’t figure out a way to dress up their BF jeans, here it is.  Add a pair of high pumps, a pretty tee and blazer.  I accessorized with my favorite hat at the moment.  Happy weekend my gorgeous peeps! Xo

Shop My Look: 

BF Jeans and Blazer ASOS//Pumps Michael Kors old but similar here (splurge), more affordable version here//Sequins Tee J. Crew (ON SALE $9.99)//Hat Intermix

Finalmente es viernes! De alguna manera esta breve semana se sentía como una muy larga. Empece mi rutina de gimnasia en Physique57 después de un paréntesis de dos semanas, es mi clase de barra favorita, pero me mata. Siento que me atropello un tren mientras escribo este post. Estoy feliz que el fin de semana está aquí, hay mucho que esperar! Por un lado, después de mucha petición de ustedes  sobre “cómo crear” mi maquillaje, he decidido finalmente comenzar a grabar vídeos. Tengo todo mi equipo y tengo planes de poner esto en marcha en las próximas dos semanas.  Se siente como un gran desafío en este momento ya que tengo que aprender a usar mi nueva cámara, colocar las luces, editar mis propios videos — ahhhhhh!!!!  Además, los premios SAG son el domingo, así que asegúrese de seguir mi comentario en vivo en colaboración con E! a través de Twitter @fabulatina.

Acerca de esta propuesta, ya que es viernes, los dejo con, con algo que pueden ponerse este fin de semana para disfrutar de cócteles o cena casual.  Emparejen sus BF jeans con unos tacones altos, una camiseta femenina y un blazer clásico.  Feliz fin de semana mi gente bella! Xo

Happy mid-week everyone!  If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I took a few days off to soak up some much needed sunshine in Miami this past weekend.  Vitamin C sure does a body good because I’m feeling re-energized and ready to tackle the rest of this Winter.  Target and I are at it again and this time they challenged me to choose one piece from my closet I’ve been ignoring for the past six months and style it three different ways.  Personally, challenges where I need to shop my own closet get me so excited– especially when I can take a classic piece that has been so good to me and reinvent it.  Insert: my black Vince leggings.  Let’s face it, leggings are the best and as a New Yorker, who loves black, they’re my go to.  With that said, I have many pairs of leggings and this pair took a back seat, but they’re back style three different ways.  With my leggings at the center of this look, I paired them with pieces to create looks that are perfect for a snow day, travel day and cocktails.  For my snow day, I’m wearing a long sweater, scarf and peek-a-boo mitten gloves (all from Target).  Leggings are great to travel, paired here with a white tunic and this faux fur vest, which will give you immediate jet setter status.  Lastly, I picked up this pretty black blouse with tie around neck, ever classic and can take your from a day at the office to cocktails or dinner.  Hope you’ve had an a-ha moment and are encouraged to shop your own closet and wear your favorite pieces in different ways.

Shop The Looks: 

Snow Day: Long Sweater, similar here, Scarf similar here and Mittens Target, similar here//Leggings Vince, similar here//Boots Sorel//Hat (my husband’s)//Bag Philip Lim

Cocktails: Black Blouse Target, available in store//Knee High Boots Brian Atwood old//Chanel Cross Body bag

Travel Day: Tunic Zara//Vest Target//Hat similar here//Flats J. Crew old

Feliz mediados de semana a todos! Si me han estado siguiendo en Instagram, ya saben que me tomé unos días de descanso para disfrutar de un poco de sol muy necesario en Miami este fin de semana pasado. La vitamina C hace maravillas porque me siento nueva!  Target y yo nos hemos unido otra vez y esta vez me desafiaron a elegir una pieza de mi armario que he estado ignorando durante los últimos seis meses y usarla de tres maneras diferentes. Personalmente, desafíos en los cuales tengo usar piezas que tengo y combinarlas con otras nuevas me emocionan muchísimo– especialmente cuando puedo tomar una pieza clásica que adoro y reinventarla como estos leggings de Vince.  Tengo muchos pares de leggings y he estado ignorando a estos.  Cree tres propuestas emparejando los leggings con piezas de Target y otras que tenia, una perfecta para un día de nieve, otra para ir a cenar y la tercera para ir de viaje.  Espero que se animen y denle un vistazo a su armario y empiecen a crear propuestas con esas piezas clásicas.  No se arrepentirán!

IMG_9271 In the name of the brrrrrrr weather, I thought it would be nice to step up my puffer game and be slightly more glamorous with a faux fur jacket.  I shopped my closet for this entire look, all pieces that I’ve had but had never worn together.  As you’ve seen, I’ve been into skirts with these knee high boots- it’s the best way to wear a skirt in this frigid weather.  There are so many faux fur jacket options out there, you’ll have options, no worries.  You’re probably surprised to see me wear a mustard yellow top (so not my color). but something drew me to this one.  And the great thing about a coated black denim skirt is that it can be work year round.  I wore this in the summer here, a very versatile piece, worth the investment.

Shop My Look:

Faux Fur Jacket similar here, love this one and this one//Black Denim Skirt similar here/ and this one here and here/Over the Knee Boots similar here and here

En el nombre de esta temperatura helada, pensé que sería bueno darle un poquito de glamour a mi propuesta con una chaqueta de piel sintética.  Para esta propuesta todas las piezas existían en mi armario, nada es nuevo, pero nunca las había usado juntas. Como han visto, he estado utilizando faldas con estas botas a la rodilla para mantenerme caliente.  La gran ventaja de comprar una falda de jean es que la puedes usar en todas las temporadas del año. Esta en el verano aquí, una pieza muy versátil, vale la pena la inversión.

IMG_9217 Hello lovelies!  Is it Spring yet?  Ahhhhh!  Despite the cold weather here in NY, I’m still rocking capes whenever I can.  You’ve seen this one on the blog before here, but giving it a more casual twist this time by pairing with ripped jeans and suede boots.  I love a soft button down mens inspired shirt, this one is from Zara, got it on sale; super easy to throw on with jeans and you can roll up sleeves for an effortless look.  This hat has been keeping my head warm, an oldie, but such a goodie.  Headed to Miami this weekend and counting down the days.  Craving warm weather and sunshine.  Xo

Hola bellezas! Señores y no termina de llegar la primavera! Ahhhhh! A pesar del clima frío aquí en Nueva York, todavía me estoy poniendo capas cada vez que puedo. Ya esta la han visto en el blog antes aquí, pero esta vez dándole un toque más informal emparejando con unos jeans y botas tipo vaqueras de gamuza. Me encanta una camisa de estilo masculina, ésta es de Zara, lo consigue a la venta; super fácil de combinar con cualquier jean para una propuesta casual. Este sombrero ha mantenido esta cabecita bien caliente.  Este fin de semana vamos a Miami y estoy contando los días. Anhelando el clima cálido y el sol. Xo

Golden Globes 2015 Best Dressed List

Another year, another Red Carpet ladies and gentlemen, and this one was a winner!  It was so great that I’ve decided to contain it to best dressed (no losers, well there were some, but hopefully you followed me on Twitter last night and know who I’m talking about).  Hollywood dazzled us last night with an avalanche of Winter white, which was a very popular color on the Red Carpet, from Kate Hudson in a very sexy Versace number to Salma Hayek’s beautiful Dior gown.  Metallic was also a huge trend at last night’s Globes, can we say HELLO J. Lo? She looked like a goddess in a Zuhair Murad dress with a revealing plunging neckline and a slit that was va va voom.  Then there was a sprinkle of purple and lavender, Lupita Nyong’o is always a winner in my book and she looked stunning in Giambattista Valli Couture.  And there was nothing mellow about the yellow gowns we saw last night, Naomi Watts wowed us in a Gucci dress and blinding bling by Bulgari.  Lastly, there was Jessica Chastain who looked gorge in a sensual gown redefining old Hollywood glamour- hair, makeup, dress= perfection!  Hope you’re following all of my Red Carpet commentary on Twitter @fabulatina, see you for SAG Awards!

Flaunt It Friday #TargetStyle

Flaunt it Friday

IMG_9414

IMG_9420 Happy Friday beautiful people!  Today’s post is all about celebrating beauty.  I’ve teamed up with my friends at Target to bring you #flauntitfriday— a day where we choose one of our favorite features and show it off the world.  I thought about which part of my body I wanted to show off long and hard because who doesn’t have insecurities?  Ultimately I settled on my lips, which I didn’t love so much before.  See, I wore braces for a while and I always thought my lips looked too big– remember, this is pre fillers craze, so I never really wore bold lip colors.  I always settled for neutral light shades.  Well, not anymore, I’ve crossed to the other side on both ends– really loving what God gave me AND embracing color.  I went with three of my favorite bold shades: A bright fuchsia from Cover Girl in Bombshell Pink, bold matte orange from Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Craving Coral and this pretty bubble gum pink from L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge in Perennial Pink.

So ladies, let’s try to kick off the year spending less time dwelling on our insecurities.  Let’s turn that around— I encourage you to work what you’ve got and really show off your favorite features.  Show off those legs, that booty, your abs!  Just do it.  It really isn’t about what you don’t have, it’s about how you flaunt what you do!

Shop These Lipsticks: 

Cover Girl Bombshell Pink//L’Oreal Paris Infallible Perennial Pink//Maybelline Craving Coral

Feliz Viernes chicas bellas! El post de hoy es todo sobre la celebración de la belleza. Me he unido con mis amigos en Target para traerles #flauntitfriday — un día donde elegimos una de nuestras características favoritas y se la mostramos al mundo. Pensé en qué parte de mi cuerpo que yo quería mostrar, porque ¿quién no tiene inseguridades? Decidi en mostrar mis labios, que antes no me gustaban mucho porque utilice frenillos durante un tiempo y siempre pensé que mis labios se veian muy grandes.  Esto fue antes de que los labios carnosos estuvieran de moda, antes de todas esas inyecciones en el mercado, así que siempre me conformé con tonos claros neutros.  Hoy me fui con tres de mis tonos favoritos: Un fucsia brillante de Cover Girl en X, naranja matte de Maybelline en X y este rosado precioso de L’Oreal Paris en X.

Así que chicas vamos a empezar el año gastando menos tiempo pensando en nuestras inseguridades. Vamos a celebrar lo que tenemos y mostrarlo con orgullo.  Muestra esas piernas, las pompis,  el ombliguito! Simplemente hazlo. En realidad no se trata de lo que no tienes, se trata de cómo lo luces, con seguridad!
