Trend Alert: The High Slit

When the weather gets warmer, the slits get higher. This season I am seeing a lot of ultra high slits on jersey dresses and maxi skirts and I have to say, I’m loving it! It’s important to know what part of your body you like to accentuate and if your part are your legs then this is the trend for you! I love the idea of the high slit maxi dress because it reveals a little bit of skin but not too much. There is a fine line between classy sexy and just trashy. My rule for this kind of stuff is to cover the top if I’m showing the bottom part of my body. Whether it fits in your style or not, you should try these sexy dresses for a night out with your girls, date night, or even a concert night.

See below for some looks!

NY Fashion Week Recap 2013!

Hey Naturalista’s! After a whirlwind of NYFW events I finally was able to compile some of my fav. looks and times from the shows I was able to attend with my dear friend and Blogger, Martha Luna (www.mdollnyc.com) Check her blog out!

NYFW was everything I imagined and more! It was a jam-packed day full of shows back to back and many, many familiar faces in the fashion industry. Super great place to network, too. I met a lot of designers, bloggers, videographers, models, and more!! Everyone was just so friendly and super sweet. Really just trying to get their business card out there and get their name out to as many ppl possible.

Besides the free goodies and VIP, my favorite part was def. the actual runway shows. The music and papparazzi really set the vibe to the show. As the models walked out on the runway wearing some of the most beautiful designs for Fall I began to feel what living out a dream really feels like. It was truly everything I had anticipated and more! My favorite show was the Monique Lhullier show, I didn’t get good pics b/c I was so just so intrigued and in the moment. PS. the shows are super short! They last about 8-12 minutes. So can you imagine? Working on a line for about 6 months for a 10 min. presentation with a million ppl watching?? Talk about pressure!

Check out some of pics. to give you a bit of what I felt on Day three of NYFW at Lincoln Center, NYC.

Army in Style

This season the military look is everywhere! From the combat boots, to the vintage flair jackets, camo pants, and even some army inspired accessories are coming from runways to stores. Combat boots have always been a staple  in my closet but this season I’m all about the jackets!! For men/women this style is just perfect. Over a chunky sweater, layer it with scarves, big earrings and jeans tucked in your boots- perfect Saturday brunch outfit if ya ask me.

*My hint– working in NYC I’ve found all the little gems and secrets and I’m sharing this one with my naturalista’s .. Google “ARMY STORES” around your hood.. These spots are wayyyy cheaper than those jackets you will find at high end stores. More authentic and vintage too 😉

Take a look at some of my inspiration for this post!

Fashion Night Out- NYC

September 6th kicked off NYFW with the fab and glamorous event, FNO. This event celebrated its fourth year on Thursday and impressed me even more than last years. This year I decided on the Meatpacking District because the events were just not to be missed. My night started with a casual walk through the Maybelline tents, getting some pics taken by bloggers while sipping on yummy champagne. The streets were crowded and the lines were long with beautiful fashionista’s stylin’ on so many levels! The fashion was absolute craziness, and I loved every outfit!! This is another reason I love this event, you get to showcase your own style and uniqueness. Nothing can beat that, especially in the fashion home of NYC.

I decided on a wide leg coral jumper with gold accessories and a wedge shoe. I already knew DVF’s event was going to be bumpin’ with Solange Knowles on the DJ set so I was readyyyyy! Once getting in Diane Von Furstenberg’s store the music was loud, the drinks were flowing, and the desserts were delish. Super great networking event with photographers, models, and bloggers. I had a blast dancing the night away with my naturalista fashionista’s and can’t wait until next years event!!

Sneaker Diva Fly

As much as I’m obsessed with summer and the gorge weather, one of my other fave seasons is FALL. Mostly because of the amazing fashion and NYFW, of course 🙂 The hottest trend right now is the wedge sneaker. I must admit that although I always like to be fashion forward, not all trends are suitable for me. I pick and choose what I like the best and add my own flair to it. Being confident within yourself is the best way to rock a trend 😉

This new twist to the sneaker is an inspiration of the fab Isabel Marant. Totally puts the chic and edge into a sneaker. Every store is re-creating them for a range of decisions for us fashionistas. Steve Madden, Aldo, Urban Outffitters are just some of the major stores you can find them. With different colors and textures the possibilities are endless!

I have my eye on leather black for this Fall.. check out some of my faves and how celebs we love rocked them:

SAG Awards Fashion Recap

It’s only right that I recap my favorites from the SAG Awards. Altogether, I thought the dresses were a lot more glamorous than the Golden Globes. There were definitely some risks taken this time and I was surprised that it happened at these awards. My top pick has to be Emma Stone. She truly is a fashionista- both at the globes and at the SAG Awards- I was just lovin’ the gowns on her! Another amazing look was the Elie Saab cap sleeve jumper on Rose Byrne. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I need that in my closet like NOW! It went perfectly with her hair style and minimal accessories. I was a fan.

Take a look at my FAB Faves! Hope you enjoyed the show!
