NIRVANA

Nirvana lookNirvana lookWhat Im wearing, total look Zadig & Voltaire, White fur coat, Embellished shoulder bag, Nirvana T-Shirt, Trousers, Ankle boots.

These pics were taken a few weeks ago (by my hubby) in DC, when I partnered with Zadig & Voltaire‘s boutique, right in the heart of the city at CitycenterDC! As you saw in my previous posts, they let me pick out my favorite pieces and style them for all of you to see how I would put them together with my very own touch. This look felt so right, with the winter white, and the red NIRVANA, just so perfect and cozy for these Holidays, right? There is something so serene and comforting about white in every season of the year, but even more so when it is cold and snowing outside. At first I thought of picking out some looks filled with glitter, gold, dresses oh so typical and fun for the holidays, but then I thought about it honestly and I am a mother of a 1 year old toddler, and I am traveling around with her non stop (as a matter of fact I am writing right now from my home in Barcelona, and stay tuned for my post on how to travel transatlantic flights with a toddler), I will probably not go to too many parties this year since my bed time is around 10pm these days, and I still don’t know what my NYE plans are, so these looks are for all of you who are on the same boat as me and LOVING it! So for now I say cheers to the cozy and edgy looks we can rock beautifully these holidays, like this Zadig & Voltaire one.

Here is my second Zadig & Voltaire look, as I mentioned in my previous post, I partnered with Zadig & Voltaire’s boutique located at CityCenter DC, to show you my favorite pieces for casual Holiday looks! I know this is the time we are all trying to find pieces and looks for all the coming Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving dinners, as well as Christmas and NYE, usually it’s dresses and heels, but I am a mommy to a 13 month old toddler who needs my constant attention and of course gives quite a workout by making me run around after her. Therefore I picked casual yet chic looks like this one, that I can use be it for a day outing or a Thanksgiving dinner. I instantly fell in love with each and every garment I am wearing, and I literally was chasing after Shirel as my hubby was taking these pics, so voila exactly what I need! This fur vest caught my eye right away, and this silky flowy blouse falls perfectly on your body and is light as air which I love, and of course my favorite bag of the moment this XS Candide, which comes in 3 different sizes but nowadays I am devoted to tiny mini bags like this one, because I can throw everything else in the stroller’s bag! Hope you enjoy this look, Besos. PS you guys should head over to their site as thee have Early Access Black Friday Sales, with up to 50% OFF. Just Sayin’…

8 Affordable, Biker Leather Jackets from Asos

[show_lookbook_widget id=”188800″]

If you are anything like me, you cannot quite find that perfect leather jacket, there is always something wrong, either it doesn’t fit how you want it to fit, the leather feels too plastic like (assuming it isn’t real leather), the pockets stick out too much, it’s too expensive for it’s quality, and the list goes on and on (now you can kind of get how picky I am). Therefore I can never find the right leather jacket (except the amazingly expensive Balenciaga ones, always so perfect), which is why I have set as one of my (many) goals for 2015 to finally find and buy “MY” perfect leather jacket, in the process of doing so I will of course share some of my findings:) So here are a few I found on Asos.com, most of them are under $100!

The perfect sweaters from ASOS

Winter is here with full force for those of us living in the East Coast!! And that gives ME loads of time with my baby girl at home, and browsing online (when she lets me have some free time;)! So I decided to use up my free time to check out my favourite online stores, find my favourite picks, and share them with all of you on a weekly basis! Hope you enjoy this round up of my top sweaters from ASOS, I chose a variety from sexy sweaters, to capes and fringes! Who said sweaters have to be boring???… Stay Warm!

Élegance, simplicité, qualité

Romy & Ray

As I sit here in one of my favorite coffee shops in DC, looking out the window I see the streets covered in snow (again), and it’s March!! I don’t mean to sound annoying to many around me (especially to my hubby, lo siento), but I am so OVER this cold and snow, and am ready for Spring, anytime you want to arrive, I will be here to welcome you Spring:) But I am not always complaining, and I have realized that in order to feel less miserable I need the right garments, since I am not a fan of layering, and am not used to this cold, I was delighted to find out about this new Parisian knitwear brand Romy and Ray! Everything about Romy’s (the designer) garments subtly and beautifully say Parisian style, “élégance, simplicité, et qualité”…

Romy & Ray

Romy & Ray I can’t even begin to tell you how long it’s been since I have been looking for that perfect cape, that won’t look beautiful, but will fit perfectly, keep me warm (without too many layers), and simply say quality. So when I received my box, I was more than surprised, I did expect to get beautiful garments (in my next posts you will see what other pieces I got from Romy & Ray), but I was blown away by the quality of the knitwear! So enough talking, here is my Sunday (comfy) look, wearing my Romy & Ray cape, while my hubby and me went for a cappucino and a quick stop to buy this beautiful tullip bouquet!
