Hearts On Hearts On Hearts

Feeling oh so lovey dovey on this Friday afternoon, passing by Bleeding Hearts, the love wall by James Goldcrown on Mott Street and Broome.

It’s not the first time I wear this dress, but here I wanted to add gold accents to my all black all the time outfit. A neutral lip, bright red nails and my hair down finished what I like to call a modern day Audrey Hepburn.

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!

On Easter We Wear Black…

…and a little bit of pink. There wasn’t much plan for Easter this year. I’m still trying to built a closet in my room which is taking forever to complete, but I’m hoping soon I can share some of that experience with you all. I love to organize closets, but boy (and girl) it’s a lot of work.

I remember back when I was little, my mom used to dress me and my younger sister up in white shoes and floral dresses. Those were the days. Now I wear white shoes, but not so much floral in my closet like I used to. I still went for a little bit of pink for an early Easter dinner at Tryon Public House with this jacket from H&M, I think it must be over 10 years old. Tweed jackets and/or blazers will always be in my wardrobe, just take a look at Chanel fashion shows, year, after year, after year and Anna Wintour -the number one fan of Chanel tweed jackets. They are and will always be a fashion staple…statement in my book. I combined more fabric and textures to the equation: chiffon, (faux) leather and suede. Every piece had its moment to shine on Easter Sunday.

What did you think of my bunny holiday get up? What’s your Sunday best look?

It’s raining in New York, but I’m checking up on that warm weather like my life depended on it! What are your warm weather plans this year?

Tulum: Night 1/Day 1

I’ve always wanted to go to Tulum, Mexico and this year I finally did. The warm weather, the authentic Mexican food (no pre-made/store bought guacamole here), the ranchera music, and of course the unlimited tequila! Aye ya yae!

Below you’ll see my appreciation for the beautiful beaches. We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Resort where they greeted us with margaritas and made us feel at home instantly. We reserved a table at Tequila restaurant inside the hotel to start off our Mexican adventure. A mariachi band played while we took pictures with sombreros! I wore a black jumpsuit with shiny gold accents for the first night in Tulum. To add a but of glamour, I brought along my sister’s vintage Chanel bag…tres chic!

Baywatch was my only inspiration for day one’s beach look: a high cut one-piece and tousled hair, a la Pamela Anderson.

What do you think of my all black looks? Any vintage lovers?

PS- I like to brighten my wardrobe towards the end of my trip to bring out my tan.
