Downtown Vibes

There’s just something about Downtown L.A. that gets me every time. It gives off this historic vibe one minute and then moves on to a unique gritty hustle kind of vibe the next. We always hear how it’s a neighborhood in “transition.” Yeah, maybe. Hmm..I’m in transition too I guess. Maybe that’s why I love it so much. I was in Downtown L.A. this week for the Hispanicize L.A. event and decided to wear this outfit from Lane Bryant. It was comfy casual, but with the edge I wanted. I loved it so much, I decided to do an impromptu photo…

Style Trend | Velvet

It never fails. The fall season rolls around and I just want to wear sweaters, scarves, and velvet. Yes, I’m having a velvet moment. In fact, I ordered some pumps from Shopbop (SALE ALERT) but they were too small and my heart broke just a little bit. No worries. I know I’ll have plenty of other chances to buy myself a little something. When it comes to wearing this lush material, you don’t have to stick with just clothes. Although, that’s a super great option to have. You can spread your wings and venture out with some super hot accessories.…

The Strength of a Woman

“Do you want to cut the umbilical cord?” I stood there with my mouth hanging open. “Ummmmmm, sure?” The nurse handed me a pair of scissors. Snip…snip…snip. Did that just happen? Did I just cut my nephew’s umbilical cord? Whoa. You should know that I have never witnessed a live birth. I may have seen one on video once as a teenager, but after 30 seconds of footage I covered my eyes. At this moment, I stood there holding my sister-in-law’s hand, helping her breathe, and praying with her through the contractions. I was instantly in awe of her courage. When…

Here’s How YOU Can Help Fight Breast Cancer | Giveaway (Closed)

Do me a favor. Stop reading this for a second and think of someone you know who has been affected by breast cancer. Is it someone you’re related to? Maybe a close friend of yours? Someone from work? Or is it you? I think that one way or another, we all know someone who has been touched by this horrible disease. Unfortunately, I have in more ways than one. And I’m so sick and tired of it hurting the people I love. Aren’t you? That’s why I’ve decided, for the second year in a row, to participate in the American…

Style Trend | Military Brass

Give me all of the buttons! I haven’t shared a style trend post with you guys in a while. I guess I wasn’t feeling too inspired. That was until I saw these military-inspired pieces. With a double row of buttons, this trend really gives off a vintage vibe. Maybe that’s why I like it so much. From blazers, to a dress, and outerwear—these selections are all on my wish list. Which piece do you like the most?  1. Torrid Zip Front Military Jacket 2. American Rag Trendy Plus Size Military Jacket 3. Eloquii Military Peplum Top 4. Eloquii Mock Neck Military…

Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant | NYC Launch

Since day one, I’ve been a Christian Siriano fan. I knew he would do amazing things and design glamorous gowns. When I first heard he was collaborating exclusively with Lane Bryant, my heart kind of skipped a beat. High fashion was coming our way! With this limited edition collection, he has given us fall looks straight from the runway. And I was lucky enough to attend the launch party in New York City and snag an impromptu interview with the designer himself. Even though this was a whirlwind of a trip, I was really excited to be in the…
