Striped and Destroyed.

Wearing:  Urban Planet Striped top & Destroyed jeans | Minkpink faux fur jacket | Zara heels similar | Proenza Schouler Ps11 bag  | Sunnies Dior

One of my favorite combinations is usually a striped top with destroyed jeans. It's so easy to run out the door with an outfit that's been done many times, different ways. I decided to pair it with a tan faux fur jacket to keep me from being too monochromatic and for practical reasons, like warmth! Like I always say, I'm a fan for mixing prints, textures and colors as long as you keep it simple. I simplified my outfit with some basic mules that I live in (so comfortable) and my classic Proenza Schouler Ps11 bag. You know my favorite outfit combination, now what's yours?

Ontario Mills x Breast Cancer Awareness

 Last week I was invited to an event called Mission Pink Champagne Makeover hosted by Ontario Mills Mall. October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, Ontario Mills Mall has partnered with the Inland Empire Chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation aimed to bring awareness around the fight against breast cancer. Ontario Mils along with other Simon Malls has committed to a donation at least $250,000 to the Susan G. Komen foundation with the help of their customers.  Many retailers, like Neiman Marcus Last Call, are donating a percentage of their sales and displaying their latest pink fashion trends. Planet Beauty is also donating a percentage of their sales through select pink products throughout their store. Shoppers can also participate by purchasing a $10 voucher card giving them 25% off any single item. Another way for shoppers to get involved is with ever $1 donation customers can add a customized pink foam brick to the Ontario Mills Wall of Strength. I can't think of a better way to raise awareness towards a cause that has touched thousands of brave and beautiful women all over the country.

NYFW: DIY Off-The-Shoulder Top

Wearing: Zara off-the-shoulder top similar | H&M textured skirt similar | Aldo shoes similar and clutch 

One of my absolute favorite things to do is DIY my clothes. Many times, being 5'3" I find items either too big or too long on me. For the most part, I always hem my jeans at the bottom, and by hem I mean literally chop a few inches off with a scissor, but for this case I had to cut my sleeves. 

This Zara Off-the-shoulder top was everything I've been looking for except the sleeves were awkwardly long and semi-loose. I figured, what I could possibly lose if I decided to cut the sleeves diagonally and open them up for a unique and fresh look. So in the midst of NYFW, cutting I did, and satisfaction was achieved. Sometimes, you'll make mistakes, but mistakes are always fixable... if not, there's always a F21 near by!

NYFW: Mixing patterns and textures 101

Wearing: HM cut-out Top | Mango Shorts | Aldo Lace Up Heels (similar cheaper) | Chloe Drew Bag | Prada Sunglasses (use code "SPREADFASHION" for first free month)

Who said you can't mix and match patterns? I'm an avid fan of colors, textures and patterns in my day-to-day looks, however mixing the two is when my worlds become one. Here are a few of my rules when pairing two different patterns:
1. Make sure they are in the same color scheme. Meaning, don't mix patterns if they don't have a few similar colors.
2. If there is some textures, it's even better! I've paired this fuzzy textured top with a sleek polyester bottom.
3. Keep your shoes solid. Nobody needs to see chaos from your head to toe.
4. Keep your accessories minimal. Don't go overboard with a huge jeweled necklace, or another printed bag. Keep is simple and chic.

Four basic rules to keep you on trend and fashionable while playing with different patterns. Be bold and confident, that's all you'll ever need!

NYFW Day 1: on the way to Mara Hoffman

 Wearing: RO&DE NOIR Vest Similar under $40 | H&M Tank | Zara Skirt Similar under $20 | YSL bag | TopShop Heels similar 

It was my first time attending NYFW and I must say it was an amazing experience! I know people go a bit crazy and overboard with their outfits but I wanted to be true to my style and wear pieces I would normally wear, with the exception of a few things! I probably wouldn't wear heels had I known I would be walking everywhere but Hey, "I love these heels..." as Carrie Bradshaw would say. I wore this to the Mara Hoffman show. I paired a bright yellow tank with a printed skirt to keep it busy and a vest to put it all together.

Few of the looks I loved from the show!
