The Velvet Blazer

October 21, 2014

Outfit with velvet blazer

A velvet blazer isn't definitely a daily wear type of garment, however when I feel like wearing something a little different and yet distinctive, I can always reach for this smooth operator. In order to showcase some contrasting textures and patterns, I decided to wear my very favorite gingham shirt, a pair of worn out boyfriend jeans and classic suede pumps.

Un chaqueta de terciopelo definitivamente no es un tipo de prenda para llevarla a diario, sin embargo, cuando me siento con las ganas de llevar algo un poco diferente y distintivo, siempre puedo contar con esta prenda suave. Con el fin de mostrar algunas texturas con contrastes y estampados, decidí ponerme mi camisa cuadriculada favorita, un par de jeans desgastados y mis tacones de gamuza clásicos.

I had this post already scheduled to go live yesterday, but I stopped and waited because what happened to one of our dearest dogs. Yesterday, late in the evening, we had to take Adobe to the veterinarian and unfortunately the inevitable had to happen. He was almost 16 years old and he was not feeling quiet himself anymore for the past few weeks. He was loved very deeply by all of us and he had a wonderful, mischievous life. This is our last picture together, and I wanted it to be a happy one, because he had a happy life and I want to remember him as happy dog. 
I want to thanks to the Human Society for giving people like me and you the chance to adopt pets in need, so they can have a second chance like Adobe did.
RIP, Adobe.

Modern Spaghetti Western

October 18, 2014

Bohemian look with a poncho

This past Wednesday, my boyfriend and I headed to Pilot Mountain in NC to enjoy the beautiful view and also to take some photos for the blog. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the sneak peek of this photo shoot. We had a wonderful and quiet time. The weather was perfect, so we enjoyed a brief walk through the woods while we contemplated Mother Nature and at the same time, we were able find neat places for pictures.
For the occasion, I decided to sport this vintage poncho with Southwestern pattern. Now, let's get this straight, I love Clint Eastwood and all his Spaghetti Western movies, but that doesn't mean that I want to recreate their looks. The last thing I want to do, is to wear this Southwestern poncho with boots and a wide brim hat. I'm pretty sure that style is already taken by "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly"…lol.  I truly believe that a pair of brogues and a leopard bag were less costume-y and more modern choices for my cozy poncho.

Red Leather Skirt

Red leather skirt street style

Since the moment I saw this skirt hanging on a rack at a local boutique, I knew I could give it plenty use. The fit is simple, the color is fun and the leather is vintage; therefore soft. I was lucky to be able to a sweet piece like this.

Oversized Blazer, Plaid Shirt and Raw Hem Jeans

Oversized blazer street style

I certainly enjoyed mixing all these fun pieces and I also enjoyed wearing them throughout the day, because they were comfortable and appropriate for the weather. And by the way, if you have followed my blog since last autumn, then you will recognize my oversized blazer
Details such as its man-inspired fit and glen plaid pattern puts this blazer on the timeless rack of my wardrobe, therefore, I'll be wearing it for years to come.
There are so many ways we can wear an oversized blazer and yesterday, I paired it with another plaid piece and a pair of fun raw hem jeans, which by the way, was a DIY job.

Fair Isle Scarf

October 11, 2014

Retro deer printed wool scarf

In my latest trip to Asheville, I stopped by my favorite vintage shop (Honey Pot) and found this fair isle retro scarf. As soon I touched it, I immediately felt like I wanted to snuggle with it by a fire place. Well, next thing I knew, the scarf was getting wrapped and placed in my shopping bag.
In this road trip, I wasn't planning on taking pictures for the blog, but on our way back, we found this cute fruit and vegetable stand at the side of the road, so we decided to stop and buy some goods and also take some pictures. I pulled the thick and cozy scarf out of my shopping bag (I know, is not winter yet) and I wrapped it over my neck. I instantly noticed some pattern bonanza going on, but I thought it looked cute, since the patterns are in the same color family.
Oh well, I hope you all enjoy this spontaneous photo shoot.

A 70's Flare

70s Fashion Trend

It's time for the Autumn fair and in this opportunity, a 70's inspired look was what I chose to wear to enjoy the entertainment. Can a grown-up have some fun? 

Coated Jeans

October 7, 2014

Outfit with coated jeans

If I have to choose one outfit to live in all this autumn, I would go for this one. Everything about this look is comfortable (including the heels), chic (to my eyes) and wearable. By the way, this is the first time you see me wearing this pair of wax-coated jeans, and, it's because they were a recent acquisition. While shopping for a pair of leather pants, I came across this particular pair. I immediately loved the way the material felt (I have no idea why I didn't try this fabric before?) and also the care instructions were way more easier and cheaper than the leather pants at the store. Well, here I'm loving them!! I bought them one size larger, because I personally prefer a looser fit with shiny pants and besides, at my age it won't hurt to tone down the sexiness part a little bit…lol.

Snow Leopard Pumps

October 2, 2014

Outfit with black and white leopard shoes

This is my first look of October and it's all about my snow leopard pumps. I've found the perfect shoes to add more fun and spice to my outfits. I'm really thrilled with this particular pair, because besides their  classic print, they also fit perfectly around my heel area. I'm always looking for brands that make shoes narrow-heel friendly. The gap in the back of my shoes has always been a problem for me, so when I find shoes that fits decently around my heels, I stick with their brands.

What I Mixed in September

October 1, 2014

Outfits with leopard print
This September was very fun fashion-wise, because  of the fluctuation of the weather. I had the opportunity to wear ensembles appropriate for summer and fall, therefore, more opportunity for variety.
