We all know I’m not the boldest one in the room. But, that’s definitely something I’m working on. And I couldn’t do it with a little help from my friends. It’s a good idea to have some amazing supporters on your side, who are well-versed in creating their own personal style. So, when I have an event to attend, need last-minute styling advice, and am considering mixing prints—who did I call? Read more
It’s no secret that L.A. doesn’t really have crisp fall days or chilly winters. That’s why I can get away with dressing like this in the middle of December. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really complaining…OK maybe just a little bit. I’m that girl who loves cold winter days. But, I also love being able to wear long kimonos with short dresses and ankle boots. Living Doll Los Angeles sent me their Breezy Kimono (sold out), which I was drooling over since the moment I laid eyes on it.
Shopping online has never been easy, especially when it comes to fit. How many times have your ordered something only to be worried until you try it on? Yeah, probably the story of your lives right? Well, if you haven’t discovered eShakti then you’re missing out! It’s time to talk custom sizing and ready to wear for sizes 0-36W.
I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!
Let’s be honest here. I love wearing all black outfits. I do love other colors, but not as much. And since we’re being honest, I only wear bold prints every once in a while. I try to be adventurous, but sometimes I just love simple outfits. But, when Igigi reached out and asked if I’d like to try a dress from their latest collection, I stepped out of my comfort zone on purpose. Say hello to the Igigi Evelyn dress.
When we were little, we played “dress-up.” We ran around in clothes that made us feel amazing. We could care less about what other people thought of us. We were young, free-spirited, and had an imagination that ran wild. As we got older things changed. We are now self-conscious, confined by society’s views of what is considered beautiful, and we realize we are not the little kids we once were. The minute we became adults our personal style instantly became questionable and judging eyes were upon us. Read more

Maybe you should only read this post if you really want silky soft hair—just saying. Personally, I’m a big fan. I’m that one person who’s always touching and running their fingers through their hair. And I love testing out different products to see what will and won’t work. So, when Dove contacted me and asked me if I wanted to take their Silky Hair Dare and try out the new Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection—I was immediately interested. Read more
There’s just something about Katy Perry’s songs. They’re so catchy. You hear them once and they’re just stuck in your head all day. “I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar…” Yeah, that was me days after CoverGirl invited me to attend her Los Angeles concert. And to make the night cooler, I even got the chance to meet her! Read more
COVERGIRL knows how to throw a party. Last night, they kicked off the MTV Video Music Awards with a pre-party featuring performances by Becky G and Jessie J. Yes, they are not only “Easy, Breezy, and Beautiful,” but they’re both extremely amazing performers. Total girl power! Watch the video I took of them both performing at the end of this post, which includes a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Bang Bang!” Read more
We are right in the thick of summer and I am still loving the ethnic print trend. Serape patterns, embroidery, Otomi fabric, Aztec print and all the different varieties of classic Mexican fabric are my jam, totally. Read more
A few months ago, when I attended the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Super Saturday event, I was really happy to see that Rachel Pally was there supporting the cause. I was even more excited when I saw that she was selling pieces from her White Label Collection—Rachel Pally plus size line. I was immediately drawn to this dress. I thought, “this would be perfect for an outdoor wedding.” And I was right, this dress was perfect for my sister-in-laws beach-themed wedding. Read more
Ever since I was a little girl, choosing a dress to wear on Easter Sunday was kind of a big deal. Whether it was frilly and floral or simply chic, my mom always set aside some money for a my dress. Now, that I’m all grown up, I still make sure I have something special to wear on this day. This year, I set aside a dress that Lane Bryant sent me from their Lane Collection. Read more
