Torrid and my Sequin Obsession

Will the obsession ever end? Really? Yes, more sequins and lots of sparkle. I wore this outfit for my dad’s 60th birthday party and I felt sassy. LOL! I did!

Torrid’s Black Mesh Sequin Front Tank Top immediately caught my eye and I had to have it. The front is sheer, but adorned with sequins and beading. I love this top! I will admit this is my second time wearing it. I wore it to the Jay-Z and Kanye concert.

I’m also wearing Torrid’s Boom Boom Jeans. These stretch trousers are an internet exclusive. They’re comfy and have a little stretch to them. I ordered my size and these felt a little big. I would definitely order one size down and be careful with closure on the waist. It’s just a little button and I think it needs a little reinforcement. Besides that, I know I’ll be wearing these a lot. And the sequin obsession continues…

Do you love sequins too?

Adding some Sparkle to My Night

Finally an outfit post! I know I’ve been slacking when it comes to these. Sorry my loves!

Last week I was invited to a holiday event at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.

I was clueless as to what I was going to wear. This is totally a last minute outfit. There wasn’t a dress code or anything, so I figured I’d go with a casual look but with some much needed sparkle.

I’ve had this beautiful Nordstrom Sejour sequin blazer for a while now and haven’t had a chance to wear it. Like a dummy, I kind of lost in the back of my closet.

I paired it with a basic black camisole underneath, Torrid Denim Curvy Skinny Jean,Torrid Black Patent Leather Heel . Forever 21 necklace, various bracelets, and a thrifted clutch.

It’s such a comfortable piece and I can’t wait to wear it again. I’m already thinking of the different ways I can style this blazer.

I’m curious as to how you’d style this sequin blazer. 

F21 Dress Replay in Chicago

Last week, I made my way to Chicago for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference. I was bummed that I couldn’t take any time to see my girls out there (you know who you are).

For the award’s gala, I wore this Forever 21 dress, that you might have seen me wear here. It was such a fun night! I love hanging out with my fellow bloggers! I was nominated for two awards: Best Latin@ Lifestyle Blogger and Best Latin@ Social Networker. I did walk away with the best lifestyle blogger award. What an honor!! Really!! I’m truly blessed. Thank you to EVERYONE who voted for me and helped me win! xoxo

Earlier in the day, I was invited to a very special Mary Kay Glam Suite held in the Vice Presidential Suite at the Intercontinental Hotel. I got my hair blown out and a “day look” makeover. And I even walked away with an awesome Mary Kay gift bag!! Thank you Mercedes from BeChicMag.com for the invite!

Check out their Free Virtual Makeover. It’s pretty cool!

I didn’t get to take many pics of the city. The conference kept me really busy. But here are a few I did get.

My New Favorite Dress

How many times have you purchased something only to have it sit in your closet, brand new with the tags? I know I’m not the only one.

That was the case with this dress I bought from ASOS Curve last year! You might remember it.

I decided to take the dress with me on my recent trip to Miami. I didn’t even think I was going to wear it. But, after many outfit changes, I decided to finally wear it out.

It’s now my favorite dress and I plan to wear it more often. It’s amazingly comfortable and I feel like it’s made for my body.

Nevermind that fact that my friend Ivory has been yelling at me to wear it. Thanks Boo!

Now let’s see what else I have in the back of my closet.

OOTD: Romper in B&W

Oh Las Vegas…I love you. Except when you’re hitting 107 degrees! I guess that’s what I get for visiting in the middle of August. Ugh! It was so flippin’ hot. But, that’s OK. I was there this past weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She hasn’t been there in a really long time, so I decided to kidnap her and my brother.

We took the four hour road trip from Los Angeles and made our way to “Sin City.” Did I mention it was hot?

Because of this heat, I knew  had to wear Torrid’s Smocked Black and White Polka Dot Romper ($48.50). It was perfect and it kept me nice and cool as we gambled and walked to a few casinos. A few people thought it was a dress. I do wish it had pockets, that would have made my day. I also wore their Silver Large Bow Necklace ($12.50). As you can see, it’s the perfect size.

What do you think? Would you buy this romper?

Parties, Friends, & Torrid

Yes! More outfits from my weekend at BlogHer. And these two are courtesy of one of my favorite brands, Torrid. They’ve really been stepping it up, in my opinion. Especially, in the quality department. And that’s something that goes a long way for me. If you’re going to spend the money, the piece has to last!

Here I am sitting with my partner in crime, Cid from Cid Style File. We practically hung out all weekend in San Diego. This is from one of the many parties we attended. I wore Torrid’s Leopard Mesh Maxi Dress and I felt very sexy in it. I even got a few compliments while I was dancing my butt off. I do wish it was a little longer, but I guess it’s better that way, so I wasn’t tripping over it.

On our last day at the conference, I wore Torrid’s Navy Embroidered Challis Tube Top. I was seriously expecting this to be a thinner top, with the design to be painted on. But, I was wrong. This top, made from rayon, had this amazing embroidery. I wore it with my  Torrid skinny jeans.

One of the things I loved about both of these strapless pieces is that they didn’t fall down on me. That’s something I really appreciated. Especially, on a busy running around kind of day.

A big thank you to Torrid for the amazing pieces I wore to BlogHer.

Paisley Meets BlogHer

On day 2 of BlogHer, I decided to wear this paisley Jessica London Printed Maxi Dress. First, let me apologize for the photos. This is what happens when you don’t bring your tripod. I haven’t done a mirror photo in a while. LOL.

This dress, courtesy of Jessica London, got a lot of compliments. I think it was this chic paisley print. I really loved the color combination, especially the navy. And I know I can definitely wear this into the fall too. I felt very bohemian wearing it. But, it does run a little big, so choose a size smaller. Oh, I also wore my new nude Dolce Vita sandals. Love them!

Have you been over to the Jessica London web site lately? They have some really cute stuff! I was like a kid in a candy store!!

In a Tiger kind of Mood

I’m back ladies! In case you didn’t know, I was in San Diego attending a blogging conference. BlogHer is the largest conference for women bloggers. There are over 3,000 women from all over the world. It was so much fun, and such a great learning experience.

Over the next couple of days, you’ll see some of the outfits I wore. Torrid, Jessica London, Ashley Stewart, and Sonsi supplied me with clothes and accessories for the weekend. Thank you so much guys!

On the first day of the conference, I wore this Grey All-Over Tiger Print Maxi Dress ($54.50) from Torrid. I got so many compliments on this dress. You know I love maxi dresses.

And of course I love the fact that there are tigers all over the dress! It was such a unique print and I know the cut of this dress would look great on everyone. Just watch out for the length. Remember, I’m 5’6  and I’m wearing sandals and the dress was practically on the floor. But, I kind of like that. LOL.

 So, what do you think? Are you loving the tiger print? 

Disneyland Casual

Visiting Disneyland in summer, with a million people is not for the weary. That’s why I made sure to dress comfy and cool. I wore my Curve I.D. Levis, this  new Free People top, and my new Dolce Vita sandals.

The top is so soft and flowy. You can’t tell, but the back of the top is longer. I heart my jeans and these awesomely comfy Dolce Vita sandals I pickup up on sale at Nordstrom Rack! You will definitely see me wearing them more often.

Below are a few silly pics I took today….I met Mickey…hee hee. And that is me sitting at his desk, in his home. And this amazing Disney style hair piece. LOL. OK, it’s just a bow from a present I got here. Hahahahaha…

 

A Turquoise Summer

It was another hot weekend in Souther California! I know it’s been hot all over the country and that makes it hard to actually want to go outside. But, I had a 3-year-old’s Hello Kitty birthday party to go to. You can’t miss those!

I grabbed this Fashion to Figure dress I’ve had in my closet for a few weeks and it was perfect weather to wear it. Besides, this is one of the colors I’ve been loving this summer.

The dress is no longer available on the web site, but I can tell you it’s a beautiful turquoise rayon summer dress with an embroidered ruffle on top. The straps are adjustable and there’s an elastic band under the chest, to give it shape.

I was a little worried that it would be too short, but it actually hit at the right spot for me. I wore my tan Aldo wedges (that are hard to button) and headed out the door.

Everything was cool until there was a gust of wind that flew right up the skirt. It seems like the dress wanted me to flash people or something! LOL

I’m so jealous of you east coast ladies that have a Fashion to Figure in your city. No fair. They need to come to Los Angeles!

A JET and Sophia Outfit Kind of Day

Most of you know that I love the laid back L.A. style and this outfit is a perfect example of that. Torrid sent me the JET John Eshaya White Leopard Print Tank ($34.50) and the Sophia Jegging Regular length ($58.50).
This was the perfect outfit for a day of shopping, eating barbecue, and more shopping. I’m always a fan of a flowy tank. Especially, when it has a knotted back where the straps meet. Now, this may seem a little difficult when it comes to choosing a bra. But you can always wear a strapless bra orrrrr one of those convertible bras with those see through straps (that are always attached) in the halter style. Just in case, like me, you need extra support. The tank is a little thin, so make sure you wear a nude bra or tube top under neath or you’ll definitely see the bra. This is the Cacique bra I wore with it.
The jeggings were amazing…as always. They fit great and weren’t too low, they sat above the belly button. Yay! I’m not a fan of low cut jeans! And they have a nice stretch, but still have the denim feel. These run pretty true to size. The 18 fit me perfectly. These are also in the regular length. The Sopia Jegging also comes in extra short, short, tall, and extra tall. Don’t you love the variety? I’m 5’6 and these are still a little long. Regardless, I can see me wearing them a lot!
What do you think of the JET tank and Sophia jeggings?
