@Zara Collaboration

Every once in a while I participate in certain collaborations with other bloggers and this one has been one of my favorite ones. We purchase one clothing item and style it based on our own style. On that note people are able to see that the shirt could get styled in more than one way. While speaking about what item to purchase we decided to choose this beautiful v-neck frilled Zara  blouse. When you first take a look at this top, you would assume that it leads more toward the professional attire but that's definitely not true. Please, feel free to take a look at the different ways each of us styled our own piece.  
I was lucky enough to be in Miami during this collaboration. Therefore, I wanted to incorporate a more summer and fun look by wearing some white fishnet socks as well as shorts. Yes, yes, yes we all know that fishnets have been in lately but I don't see a lot of people wearing white ones so I thought that I should go for it and I can't lie I really liked the look. Even though this post is about the blouse from Zara, I can't let this gorgeous pearl beads statement bag pass by! It is a perfect size and you can fit any small necessities that a girl needs on the go. I hope that you all enjoy our looks.

Recap of NYFW Part II: Marc Jacobs


Unfortunately, my life has been school, work and internship since September 2016. I know that a majority of you are tired of me saying that but I must admit that it has been an impenetrable pathway trying to balance everything in my life. Even though at times I feel like completely giving up, I remind myself of the compulsive drive that I have toward graduating and holding my MSW diploma. I am slowly counting the days till May so I can do what I love: Work as a Social Worker and continue blogging! 

Who else was amazed at the old school hip-hop style that Marc presented for his F/W collection? I know that I was! Instead of doing interviews Marc put his thoughts and ideas behind this collection in writing. He stated that he was inspired for this collection by a Netflix documentary called Hip-Hop Evolution.  He wanted people to know how much respect and acknowledgment he has for the never-forgotten generation with the composed polish consideration applied to fashion, which in his words "...will forever be the foundation of youth culture street style." The models wore fur-collared jackets, retro platforms, retro-chic and corduroy pants and modern party dresses; Also, let's not forget the statement hats as well as prodigious blings :) 

I wasn't able to show off my street style as much for this NYFW but I included a few photos from 
what I have.

Part 1. Recap of NYFW with Tadashi Shoji, Noon By Noor, Taoray Wang and Georgine

Sitting front-row in Tadashi Shoji's f/w17 show was an astounding experience. The designer left the crowed in an awe-inspiring state of mind. Models walked down the runway in forest chiffon, lace, velvet, long bell sleeves and much more. The V-neck velvet dresses consisted of draping around the shoulder and open neck-lines. Even though I am not someone who is open to wearing a dress with a long V-neck but I am definitly open to chaneling my Tadashi Shoji by wearing a long gown that will consist of long V-Neck for the next proper event that I will attend. Some of my favorite looks were the pewter electric stripe velvet long sleeve jumpsuit with plunging neck and set-in scarf. I also really loved the persian rose devore velvet long sleeve floor length gown with rose lace insets. 

If I could walk out the runway show with one piece of clothing from each model, I would have been a very adrenalized and happy person.. The looks from Noon By Noor fit in with my sense of style impeccably. Fabrics were double-faced, sumptuous and by the looks of it very soft to touch. The delicate colors (such as caramel, ink, black, white and grey) were paired together within one tone for each outfit, which implicates that people could wear an outfit that will consist of semi-the same color or hint of the same color. These looks could be worn during work-hours, weekend, casual meetings, bolder, running errands as well as going to school. Some of my favorite looks were the caramel faux shearling croppsed jacket and caramel velvet cropped pants, as well as the black mannish blazer, black hooded top and black cropped pants, lastly the black velvet and organza asymmetrical dress.

                  TAORAY WANG
This is my 2nd season attending the Taoray Wang show and I must say that after the first time I knew that I would highly be anticipating her F/W17 show and there I was watching it again, live and front row. Tao wanted to elevate and inspire people by emphasizing contemporary Chinese drama depicting Qing Dynasty character going over from ancient times in today's world. In the past women had to stay limited toward their wearings within the context of delicate and feminine lace negligees. On the other hand, the suit was known for men to wear in order to the male figure to be presented as the symbol of power, business and prestige. Wang decided to combine the opposite elements by creating the clothing that will consist of deconstruction, masculine with feminine, East and West, heritage and power. Now, how inspiring is that? I could not choose a favorite look but I loved the belted long blazers layered over sexy lace dresses and trousers, the sharp blazers with a zipper shoulder, and a fitted double-breasted jacket tucked into wide-leg trousers, can we take it back to 60's now or what?

Georgine, the bold wigs that reminded me of when I had black hair while I was in High School were extravagant and spectacular. The inspiration behind this collection was for women that have fashion, are courageous with edgy looks could be living in "Georgine Suite". The extra textured wigs were enhanced by a wide rage of Moroccanaoil products. The models walked down the runway in metallic fabrics, short dresses, warm-fur highlighted coats, contrasting skirts with different patterns where any girl in today's world could wear and feel sophisticated.
