I Want: À-la-Mexique by Spenglish

woooops it's been over a month. what can i say kids, i'm busy from 9-5, 5 days a week, and all i want to do when i get home is watch some good ol' tv. i'm probably talking to myself at this point but i saw this on Vogue Mexico's twitter yesterday and decided to post it on my blog.

get to know: À-la-Mexique

if it wasn't funny enough in english - here it is in spanish.

" À-la-Mexique " is a limited edition collaboration by Gabriel Rivera-Barranza ( a fashion and communications consultant in NY ) and t-shirt brand, Spenglish. the 4 t-shirt collection is made of the best and softest cotton, pima cotton and are priced at $50.

thinking about it..i think Shantall Lacayo met this guy and told me about his project.

cause since YSL dropped the SL i've been trying to get Shantall to do a Y Shantall Lacayo? t-shirt. ha! i guess he beat all the latinos to the punch.

so who's your alter ego? are you Coco Canales, Isidro San Lorenzo, Juan Pablo Gutiérrez or Alejando McReina?

the cool thing about this collaboration is that 10% of each t-shirt sold will benefit Project Paz, an initiative to promote peace in the city of Juárez.

Fall Trend: Plaid & Tartan

it's fall and the holidays are near. so besides seeing aisles decked out in halloween, thanksgiving and christmas decorations...you can also find dark solids, velvet and punk plaid! for the longest time, i've been wanting to buy a plaid blazer. i found the perfect one in Florence but it was way to expensive since it was custom made from some random men's tailor shop. then last year, while working retail at C Wonder, they too had a perfect plaid blazer which i could have gotten employee discount for but i decided to save my money for Christmas gifts. once again 'out of my budget'. so maybe this time i'll finally give in at Zara. however, i'm between a flannel top, plaid skirt and plaid blazer. i think the skirt is out, cause it's winter, it's super short, i hardly club or go out to even wear a skirt...moments like these is when i wish i lived in Miami or somewhere warmer, so I can wear sweaters and skirts and no down jackets...oh well.

my Fall Wish List: checkered top with zippers and/or checkered jacket both by Zara.

NY Fashion Week 2013: Jimmy Kimmel

back on september 12th, on the last day of NYFW my friend sent me this Jimmy Kimmel clip called "Lie Witness News - Fashion Week 2013". 

what a coincidence! I was actually there and noticed a film crew interviewing 

the posers standing outside Lincoln Center.

it was Sunday, say about 3pm and I stopped by to take a few picsof the 

nobodies that stop and want photog attention. but sometimes an actual celebrity will walk by.

it really is turning into a Circus of Fashion. now i don't mind actual editors, models,
and stylists dressing to impress but these other people,
not only are they dying to be "fashion famous" but have no clue of the industry itself.

smh. watch the video and you'll understand.



What NOT to Wear: Fashion Job Interview

yesterday i went to a (fashion) job interview and the girl walking in after my interview was wearing jean shorts. sorry, but in my book that is a no no. i feel like, it's an honor to be considered for a position (you really want) and respectful to wear a office chic somewhat formal attire. yes, the company is laid back, loves prints, eclectic, from New York, and young - but shorts...really!? i'm not telling you to wear boring black trousers and a white long sleeved top. but you can certainly, go for a Jenna Lyons look. slimmed trousers, casual summer blazer, striped boyfriend tee and loafers. idk? mix it up. it's fashion. you can have fun but not be lazy about it. i also know it's relatively hot in NY right now - but i just can't. whatever happened to "dress to impress" or "dress for the job you want and not have"? therefore, here are some samples of jean short looks NOT to wear for a job interview (well according to me). and here are some samples of looks (featuring Jenna Lyons) you can try for your next fashion job / internship interview.

Hair Inspiration: Brunette to Blonde

I don't think I can pull off a blonde Queen B or blonde Kim K and I definitely do not want ombre. everyone has ombre. and once my hair is a certain length it tends to dry at the tips - so if i would dare to go ombre, i'd ruin them and have to cut it short and that is a big no no. short / medium cut is not my look. i simply look bigger. however, i can't help but want to change my hair look every so often. if i only had a personal hair stylist who could change up my look. 

so here are my latest brunette to blonde hair inspos.
perhaps for this new fall season, i'll finally give in.
stay tuned.
