Lisu Vega SS13

Lisu Vega SS13

A while back, I discovered a designer by the name of Lisu Vega, Miami native with a flare for recycled garments with just the right amount of color and fun. My kind of clothing ;) She not only designs clothing but also jewelry and fabrics. I really like her use of color and print in these simple and clean lines. I really enjoy how each piece can be worn with simple accents, like black opaque tights or nude heels. Each piece you see here is available on  her website and are a steal if you ask me ;) 

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

enjoy Lisu...

Wild Things

Wild things

I think that these are the last days when I will be able to stand going outside with bare shoulders, Fall is here and the days are getting shorter and milder. I love Fall and I love this tunic dress that Sugarlips apparel sent me in the mail. I plan on wearing this piece over shirts and blouses for when the colder temps will be here. It came with it's own belt with leafs on the ends, cute no? For this look I paired it with some navy knee socks and my prized Vince Camuto boots I got a while back from a styling contest, I didn't win but at least I got these awesome Fall boots. I wear them more then I expected, I was not sure when first got them in the mail but now I never want to get rid of them :) 

I got my hair cut again can you guys tell? I forgot how fast my hair grew when it is this short, I went a tad little shorter then my previous cut because I want to see the collars on my blouses, I am so tired of hair covering them up, as silly as that sounds. Next Tuesday I am getting some new ink on my left arm, it is going to be a big piece, almost half my arm, I am so excited to share you all! Have a nice week everyone and let the cocooning begin!

Montreal Doc Marten's party

MTL Doc Marten's party

This past Thursday evening mom and I made it out to a really awesome party thrown by the new Doc Marten's store we just got on St-Catherine's street. There were so many people in this small space, so much to look at, eat and drink. I went a little crazy with taking pictures of the shoes and people around me. For some reason I don't think you guys will mind ;) After looking at all these pictures of Doc's I came to the conclusion that I need, yes need those tan and white tassel loafers. It takes me back to a time in the mid 90s when everyone in school had a pair of three hole doc's and my mom could not afford to buy me a pair. I remember having a fake version and all the kids made fun of them. Oh kids! they can be so mean sometimes. I got my first pair of Doc's when I was able to afford them myself much later on in my life I was so happy when I got them and wore them till they fell apart. I really love how Doc Marten shoes have come a long way and have so many choices now from tapestry styles, liberty print's, shinny patent leather,comfy looking flats and loafers with over size tassel's ;)

I hope you guys enjoy these pictures from the event, a big thank you to the organizers for inviting me and mom   I incorporated a few pictures of people's looks, there were so many and these are my favorites, enjoy!

Birds Of North America Fall Winter 2012/13

Birds of North America FW12-13

About a month ago or so I received in my inbox the new look book for Birds Of North America, a Canadian label that designs well cut, well fitting garments for the girl that looks for quality and polished styles. I waited a little bit before writing about this collection because I wanted to see the pieces in person and let you all know how I felt about it. First off the pieces look so amazing in person, I find it so hard to tell if I really love something from just looking at some look book photos, of course the model is gorgeous and everything fits her like a glove, but the great thing about Birds is that it will fit you no matter what body shape you have. I also really like that online you can order the dresses,skirts or tops in different colors and patterns. In person the fabrics feel luxurious and the cuts flatter the female shape. I really liked deep hues of burgundy,navy, grey's, green's and purples used for the collection, the fabrics are wool's, cotton sateen and soft printed cotton's and lace. These pieces can be worn as everyday pieces, work or on a date night. I usually shy away from simple clothing just because I love color and bold patterns but I have really fallen for this Canadian brand and plan on saving up each season for at least one piece to add to my collection, these pieces are timeless and can be worn for years and years to come.

 I may have to buckle down and purchase either #1 or  #4, I am still unsure. These are only a few pieces from the collection you can view all the pieces online and shop them here. If you like any of the styles in this post I put direct links to each look, all you have to do is click on the photo and it will magically take you to it :)
