NEW VLOG ON YOUTUBE!!!

No comments:


Hey there. I am so excited to feature my new VLOG on YouTube. This first video just so happens to be a minivlog where my friend, Ashley and I head to an antique show for the first time. The both of us are very cultured when it comes to art and design. Crazy enough before even knowing one another, we both took the same major in college (Interior Design) and found a huge love for Architecture and Fashion Design. Overall, we just love to have fun, dab in art, visit restaurants and food trucks, cut up, have drinks in the city, shop and dance to soca and dancehall in the car. Just some of your ordinary women living in the city.

Hope you love it.
Ciao!

LET THE FESTIVITIES BEGIN...

It's that time again. The nation's biggest Arts and Music festival is baaack. It's Coachella!!! For some reason I feel as though this year's double weekend event (April 10-12 and April 17-19) is going to be epic. This year's line up includes Drake, Azealia Banks, The Weeknd, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah to name a few. Listen to this... rumor has it that tickets sold out within 20 minutes. Seriously, this event is going to be legit and I really wish I could attend, but I highly doubt I'd make it gain access. I wish I could experience the live music, art and fashion. Oh yes, the fashion also plays a huge role in the overall experience of Coachella. The look always reminds me of the show The Wonder Years and how the older sister, Karen dressed— flower bands, retro colors like yellows, reds and oranges, soft flowing fabrics and round framed sunnies. I absolutely loved the show and I absolutely loved that era.

If you are not attending the Fest this year, there's no need to miss out. I know a few people who are throwing their own Coachella parties with live music, art and fashion. So if you are searching for some great inspirational pieces or just want to add to your existing eclectic style, here are some great ideas for you to consider.

MIRRORED AVIATOR SUNGLASSES BY @AQUASWISS (AQS)
Even though these mirrored aviator (or flash lenses) sunglasses have been around for decades, this timeless accessory has officially appeared back on the fashion scene as one of the must-haves for 2015. From pilots that fly the friendly skies to police officers with the thick haired ‘staches, these specs can be seen just about anywhere on just about anyone. I, myself have one. To be honest, I got bored with them because they were plain. I got them back in 2010 at American Eagle for $15 and wore them about... yeah, let's just say they're still in their case in my car. I think at the time I was just looking for something gold or champagne colored to accentuated my skin tone. I will not lie, I definitely will be wearing them again, hence the reason they're still in my car, lol. However, what makes these specs better and eye catching is its mirror appearance.


The perfect thing about these glasses is that you can dress them up and dress the down. Just last week, I saw a woman walking out of church in a black blazer and skirt with fuchsia and pink lens. Looking back, I wish I would have taken a candid image of her. In fact, I'd love to rem/x it myself within the next couple of months. With an accessory like this, the the more vivid the color and opaque the lenses are, the better. AquaSwiss has some great colors that I am dying to get my hands on, retailing at $295. Ray-ban, who also has some of the prettiest colors, range around $150-200. In fashion, style doesn't always have to be expensive. You can still wear these great designers at great prices without hurting your pockets.
