My Take on Black Friday

Black Friday *need copy & image* 😂 If you navigate through Twitter, you probably know what I’m talking about.

The images are here, now let’s get to the copy.

I hope everyone enjoyed some quality family time on Thanksgiving. In case you decided to burn some calories after the big meal and hit the mall, that’s probably not a bad idea. If you hate crowds and prefer to do your shopping online, I’ve got you covered too. Here is a list of stores worth checking out this weekend:

  • Zara – 30% off entire collection. It may seem that Zara is all I wear, but I only hit the store twice a year during the sales. It’s a good time to stock up on basics and score some trendy items as well. Btw, the skirt I’m wearing below is from Zara.
  • Asos – 30% off entire site. Another go-to for me that makes my work outfits stand out. 😎
  • Boohoo – 60% off full price items
  • Ami Clubwear – 60% off everything. Check out the velvet sock booties I’m wearing below.
  • Steve Madden – 30% off plus free shipping

What I’m shopping for:

  • Sock booties
  • Mesh tops and dresses
  • Pieces with mixed textures and prints
  • Jewel embellished tops and pants
  • Velvet, suede and leather outfits

I’d love to hear from you and what are some pieces you’re looking for this fall and winter season.

xoxo ♥️

Styling a Bomber Jacket

It’s only February and it’s already looking like spring in Las Vegas! I’m ready to celebrate warmer weather with thinner fabrics, brighter colors and better yet – floral prints.

To be honest I haven’t been a huge fan of the bomber jacket trend. It is quite bulky, which isn’t very flattering especially if you’re short like me. However, the silky fabric and floral embroidery of this jacket I recently found on Gilt got me! Not to mention the 40% extra I got on it, and that’s after sale. I couldn’t pass it up after all.

Silk looks great with velvet, so I hope to pair this jacket with velvet dresses or pants. For s more casual look, I would opt for a pair of white skinny jeans or a flared denim.

How do you like to wear a bomber jacket?

Fall’s Most Popular Fabrics

Suede and velvet are two really popular trends this fall. From head to toe, you can find these fabrics in dresses, jackets, handbags, shoes and even jewelry. I scored these Zara velvet booties only for about $45 in Mexico City. I love the style because they can give your outfit that polished look! The suede dress is from last fall’s Asos collection but it’s still quite on trend. What I love about it is that I can wear the dress by itself to a party or for an evening outing. For a daytime look I can pair it with just about any top. A turtleneck underneath makes a great fall or wintertime outfit as well.

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your fall styling. Enjoy!
