Is Thanksgiving really next week?  Which only means that the holidays are around the corner and I’m just not ready!  Okay, weather is frigid in NYC, like 24 degrees freezing, and I’m not ready for that either.  This is why for now, I’m sticking to wearing capes (and also cause I’m obsessed).  What’s not to love? If you overeat, nothing to worry about AND you can still look super chic, especially when you can layer it over a really cool sweater.  This one is from Kelly Osbourne’s first clothing line collection called Stories.  I love unique sweaters, and this one is one of a kind, with it’s floral embossed detail in the front and patches on the sleeve.  Look paired with skinny jeans and animal print pumps.

No puedo creer que el día de Acción de Gracias es la semana que viene!  Esto sólo significa que las Navidades están a la vuelta de la esquina y no estoy preparada! Bueno, el clima en Nueva York esta friísimo, o sea a 24 grados, no lo aguanto y solo estamos en Noviembre.  Como verán estoy obsesionada con las capas, es que son super chic y fáciles de usar, sobre todo cuando se pone por encima de un sweater cool. Éste es de la colección de ropa de Kelly Osbourne, llamada Stories.  Me encanto por su detalle floral en relieve en la parte delantera y parches en la manga.

Hello pretty people! How cute is this pup?  One of the highlights of shooting around any park is seeing all of the dogs getting walked.  Every now and then this happens and it makes me day.  Now back to business, I told you that I’m making an effort to break away from black.  Since I inevitably can’t stay away, I decided it was time for a colorful coat– a bright one that would make me happy every time I wear it and that would not break the bank.  I found this beauty at Zara for $199- it’s not red per se, it’s between red and orange, tomato?  I know it’s not a color, but just go with it.  This vegan leather dress is also from Zara and perfect for this holiday season, easy to accessorize and dress up for any cocktail party.  My ankle booties will soon be seen with tights, they are so so comfortable.  Trust me, you will love these.

Hola gente linda! ¿Que lindo esta este perrito verdad?  A veces cuando me estoy tomando fotos en el parque se me acercan los perritos y este me pareció hermoso.  Okay, ahora vamos con el look de hoy, sabes que soy adicta a la ropa negra y para hacer un esfuerzo y romper la rutina decidí que un abrigo de color es el accesorio perfecto para no lucir tan fúnebre.  Encontre este abrigo color tomate en Zara, aparte de tener un corte que me encanta, solo cuesta $199.  Este vestido de cuero vegano es también de Zara y perfecto para esta temporada de fiestas, super clásico y aparte te lo puedes poner con unos aretes o collar de declaración para cualquier cóctel. Mis botines de tobillo están perfectos para las fiestas y están super cómodos!

Bonjour!! I’m still on a Parisian high.  As my friend says, all vacations must come to an end so that you can plan your next one.  But we’re not doing that just yet, still savoring the highs of our days in Berlin and Paris.  I can’t wait to share our photos and tell your all about our trip in a future post.  I’ve been up since 5:30am, super jet lagged and working away.  Back in the saddle and feeling super inspired about the future.  Temperatures are definitely dropping in NY, which means time to whip out leggings, hats and layer away.  These leggings are THE BEST (and on SALE!), got them in black and bordeaux at Club Monaco and wish I could have them in every color.  The good news is that you’ll find leggings like these in pretty much every store, they’re the perfect basic, can be dressed up or down.  Here I paired with a long sleeve tee from Alexander Wang that was a splurge, but it’s so soft and perfect.  And this boucle long vest from Zara I can’t stop wearing and my floppy hat from American Apparel.

Wishing you all a super blessed week! Let’s work on making those dreams a reality.  Besitos!

Bonjour!! Todavía estoy en la nubes despues de pasa 10 días en Berlin y Paris. Como dice mi amiga, todas las vacaciones deben llegar a su fin para entonces poder planear la siguiente. Pero no estamos planeando nuestras próximas vacaciones, todavía estamos saboreando al máximo nuestros días en Berlín y París.  Estoy que me muero por compartir nuestras fotos y contarle sobre nuestro viaje en un post cercano. He estado despierta desde las 5:30 am por el cambio de hora y ya trabajando desde que me desperté sintiéndome super inspirada.  Las temperaturas están bajando en Nueva York, lo que significa tiempo para empezar a usar pantalones leggings, sombreros y capas. Estas pantalones son de la temporada pasada, los tengo en negro y color vino de Club Mónaco y deseo tenerlos en todos los colores porque son muy prácticos.  La buena noticia es que usted encontrará leggings como estos en casi todas las tiendas. Aquí me los he emparejado con una camiseta de manga larga que compre con descuento, este vest de Zara que he dejado de usar y mi sombrero de American Apparel.

Espero que pasen una semana fenomenal!!  Besitos!

And I’m Off……

travel just go-670

Happy Friday my fab gals!  Today I’m off to Berlin and Paris for some much needed R&R.  I’ll be leaving my computer behind for the first time ever since I started this blog and I’m having major separation anxiety, but it has to be done.  I’ve never been to Berlin, so very excited about exploring a new city.  And while I’ve been to Paris, the truth is that Paris IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!  It’s time to get my creative juices flowing and come back recharged so that I can create even more inspiring content.  But I’m not dropping off the map completely, you can follow my journey on Instagram and I’ll see you back in one week.  If you’re not following me on Instagram, find me, I’m @fabulatina.  Auf Wiedersehen!

The little black dress just got a makeover!  You know I’m a sucker for a bodycon dress, make it a black one and we have a winner.  Plan to wear this little darling for my hubby’s birthday in Paris and thought I would give you a sneak peek to see what you thought.  I got this on Revolve Clothing and it fits like a glove– it will get a lot of wear during the holidays too.  One of my favorite red lipsticks is Russian Red by MAC.  Trust me, the perfect red.

Hello my lovelies!  I really hope your week got off to a great start.  As you can see, I’m really trying to brighten up my wardrobe and if you love black as much as I do, there’s no better way to do that than with a colorful coat.  I had been in the market for one and Zara just never fails me.  I can’t put my finger on the color, definitely a cross between red and orange– tomato?  Not only is the color great, but love the style and fit and the best part, it will not break the bank.  Here I’m wearing my favorite coated skinny jeans, this new v-neck sweater I got from ASOS and these caged bootie heels that I have not stopped wearing.  This entire outfit is coming with me to Berlin and Paris, counting down the days!  Have a great week guys.

Happy mid week fabulicious gals! Personally, I’m counting down the hours because one of my besties is coming to visit this weekend and we’re doing the “girls” thing!  Skipping the whole Halloween thing— I know, I’m boring, but I just couldn’t get into the Halloween spirit myself, but have been enjoying looking at all of the creative costumes on social media and I’m sure there’s so much more to come this weekend.  Anywho!  Love me a faux fur vest that looks real and this one from Zara is a winner and great to throw over a casual outfit to give it a dash of pizazz.  My coated black jeans are screaming “please stop wearing me”, but I can’t stop. They’re so comfortable and somehow they hold it all together.  I’m breaking in my new Rag & Bone booties- don’t ya just love em’?  Wishing you a glorious day! Besitos.

Feliz mitad de semana chicas fabulosas! Personalmente, estoy contando las horas, porque una de mis mejores amigas viene a visitar este fin de semana!  Se que todo el mundo esta con la fiebre de Halloween y les cuento que este ano no me voy a disfrazar.  Se que están pensando que estoy aburrida pero realmente no tengo mucho espíritu de Halloween este ano pero si estoy disfrutando todas las fotos que estoy viendo en las redes sociales y estoy segura de que hay por lo mucho más por venir este fin de semana. Ahora vamos a mi propuesta de hoy, me encanto este chaleco de piel sintética que parece real y éste es de Zara. Mis jeans negros recubiertos están gritando de tanto que me los pongo, pero no puedo parar, son super cómodos! Y estoy estrenando mis botas de Rag & Bone que me fascinan.  Verdad que están lindas?  Les deseo un día glorioso! Besitos.

As you can see, it’s not just a gray phase I’m going through– I’ve been wearing a lot of skirts lately too.  It’s the lady in me.  Don’t get too used to it because it’s beginning to get nippy in NYC and I predict denim madness is about to follow.  But let’s stay in this feminine, floral moment for now.  What I love about this top (besides the floral print) is that it’s lose, making it very easy for me to move around and feel comfortable.  Paired with an a-line mini and my fave ankle booties from ShoeDazzle (also seen here)

Como pueden ver, no es sólo una fase gris que estoy pasando– He estado usando un montón de faldas últimamente. Bueno, no se acostumbren demasiado porque ya se esta poniendo frio en NYC y presiento que vendrá una ola de pantalones.  Pero quedémonos en este momento femenino por ahora. Lo que me encanta de esta camisa (además del estampado floral) es que es super cómoda.  En combinación con una mini corte A y mis botines de tobillo favoritos de ShoeDazzle.

Happy first day of the week my lovelies!  Hope you all had an amazing weekend.  Personally, I didn’t stop working– I’m cooking up something BIG that I can’t wait to share.  In the meantime, I’ll leave you with the pretty things I pinned this weekend, including those gorgeous animal print pumps by Christian Louboutin, that shoe closet (oh my!) and the Fall inspired nail art, which I can’t wait to get.  Last week, Oscar de la Renta lost his battle to cancer and the world was in mourning.  In honor of the greatest, most iconic designer of our time, this last dress is one of his beautiful designs- classic, elegant, timeless, simply perfect.

It’s a day of beauty on the blog.  I’ve been getting a lot of beauty products lately and so excited to share the ones I’m most excited about.  Starting at the top, October is Breast Cancer awareness month and year after year Estee Lauder is dedicated to funding research and raising awareness for this deadly disease that impacts thousands of women daily.  Swing by their counter and pick up this beautiful limited edition makeup bag with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Really excited to try the Neutrogena Pore Refining regimen because who doesn’t want to minimize the appearance of pores?!  I had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating with Oribe early in my career and not only is he a hair stylist genius, responsible for some of the most iconic hairstyles of the red carpet, but his styling line is amazing!  From the smell of every product to the results.  I picked up these mini versions of his beach, texturizing and scent spray from my salon and need to get the full size– IN LOVE!  Now let’s talk hyper pigmentation— as a Latina, I’m the victim of dark spots caused by the sun, so anxious to put this Estee Lauder Enlighten line into my daily skincare regimen.  Lastly, my beloved L’Oreal Paris relaunched my favorite lipstick from their line; the new Infallible Le Rouge comes in pretty new packaging, has more shades and the finish promises to last even more hours than the original.  Plus, look at these shades!

Hoy en el blog, los productos de belleza que últimamente me tienen muy emocionada! Comenzando en la parte superior, octubre es mes del cáncer del seno y año tras año Estee Lauder se dedica a recaudar fondos para esta enfermedad mortal que afecta a miles de mujeres a diario. Pásate por su mostrador y recoge esta bolsa de maquillaje de edición limitada hermosa cuya recaudación se destinará al Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Muy emocionada de probar el régimen Neutrogena Pore Refining porque ¿quién no quiere minimizar la apariencia de los poros ?! Tuve el placer de conocer y colaborar con Oribe al principio de mi carrera y no sólo es un genio estilista, responsable de algunos de los peinados más emblemáticos de la alfombra roja, pero su línea de productos para el pelo es increíble! Desde el olor de cada producto a los resultados. Cogí estas mini versiones de su linea en mi salón y estoy fascinada! Ahora vamos a hablar hiperpigmentación — como latina, yo soy víctima de la decoloración causada por el sol, asi que estoy ansiosa de poner esta línea de Estee Lauder Enlighten en mi régimen de cuidado de la piel todos los días. Por último,  L’Oreal Paris relanzó mi lápiz labial favorito de su línea; el nuevo Infallible Le Rouge viene en este nuevo envase, tiene más matices y el acabado que promete durar incluso más horas que el original. Además, mira a estos tonos!
