Blending it in

July 27th, 2010 — 11:41pm

Someone asked me yesterday how to layer a variety of bracelets…and I thought maybe others had the same question.  It takes a little imagination and a bit of creativity to wear the perfect combination.   Just keep in mind that searching for all the pieces will take some time…sorry, it doesn’t happen overnight.  Ah shucks!  What I will say is that it will eventually come together….but you always have to be on the lookout.  My suggestion is to shop for accessories that are unique, versatile, and classic.  And, it’s always a good idea to stock up on your basics….hammered bangles work well when you’re layering.  And one last thing, color combination is essential…make sure what you wear matches.  Silver & gold is a little tricky but you can mix & match them together.  You should stick to one dominant color and then mesh with the other.  Don’t be afraid to blend a variety of colors too.

A basic look…Linea Pelle double slice wrap, Toy Watch gold bezel watch, iLuck wood bracelet w/hamsa, Morra Designs hammered bangles, vintage stripe bracelet.

One of my favorite piece this summer…Morra’s bubble necklace.

Nantucket Nectars.

July 25th, 2010 — 6:41pm

I thought I would never see another Nantucket Nectars again…until I saw them at Target.  I pick a bottle whenever I’m in New York because they’re soooo tasty.  It’s satisfies both your sugar craving & your thirst quenching all in one.  It’s the one juice that I miss and long for…

So I was excited to see that Target was carrying a small selection (and I really mean small!) of Nantucket Nectars!  I love Orange Mango, Red Plum, Half & Half (tea mixed with lemonade), and Pomegranate Pear…gulp gulp gulp.

Dessert Club, ChikaLicious

July 25th, 2010 — 6:19pm

The truth be told, I’m not only addicted to shopping but I’m also a sugar fiend.  Yes, I love sweets …to die for.  It’s one of my specialities when I’m in the city…I visit new sweet joints (mostly recommended by friends or I’ll see it on tv).  A couple of friends suggested a tiny, hole in the wall dessert shop called “Dessert Club, ChikaLicious” on 204 E 10th St.  They were also rated 4 out of 5 stars on (and that’s a great rating in my book).  Just like every glass counter you see, everything in there looks d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!  I ordered the red velvet cupcake and a chocolate macaroon.  To my surprise–I did not like it at all.  Can you believe it?  I couldn’t subject myself to finishing the desserts either. I wish I had a better verdict for ChikaLicious…

Kain is well known for the basic tees, tanks, & dresses, simple yet flattering silhouettes, & infamous for their sheerness.  That’s why so many women (including our favorite celebrities!) love KaIn.  It doesn’t exactly state the obvious but there’s a hint of sexiness to every piece in their collection.  They’ve brought sexy back…

And there are some days that I don’t feel like showing a ton of skin so I’ll layer it with my nude cami.

check out the other styles from Kain pre-fall collection…not all of them have a sexy back!  in store now.

lately i’m all about the 101 shades of grey.  i can’t get enough of grey tops, bottoms, nail polish, shoes, and bags.  i love most greys except for the really flat silver grey (the matte version)…you’ve got to be careful as some greys may wash out your complexion and sometimes you’ll look older than your true age and we don’t want that to happen.  it’s not flattering for anyone.  think of grey as the new ‘black’ for summer.  as much as I love color, I love wearing black too.

the talya top is very feminine with the v-neckline and subtle sheer sleeves (the sheerness is located only at the top).  but i’ve mixed it up with my distressed boyfriend jeans, my favorite linea pelle vintage belt, and summer lovin’ espadrilles.  later, i’ll mix it up with my denim shorts, gladiators, & accessorize it with a bunch of bangles and necklaces.

i love nation’s cypress tee!  i can live and breathe in tees everyday.

and, designer jen menchaca loves to switch her playful candy-colored labels around.

toy watch

July 21st, 2010 — 3:43pm

For 3 years now, I can’t stop accessorizing with the color gold…gold this & gold that.  And, I’ve probably received the most attention for my gold watch by Toy Watch.  I received my last shipment yesterday so if you’re thinking about it, stop!  It’s time to get one.

also available in rose gold.
