The Details: Halo

" I found a way to let you in
But, I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now " - Halo, Beyonce

inspired by ballet dancing goddesses living in Spain?

an effect that Ghesquière called “invading nature” 

the halo, a perfect minimalistic addition to his modern architectural collection.

perhaps, i'll spruce up my hair accessories...turbans, check. gossip girl headbands, so four years ago. metal halos worn backwards, hello 2013 must have [must try] accessory.

Beauty: Chanel Spring 2013 Couture

Hair & makeup featured feathery effects at Chanel Spring 2013 Couture show.

"There's nothing more elegant than a certain kind of melancholia," Lagerfeld mused. And surely there is nothing that induces melancholia like the transience of beauty.

I Spy: Metallic Pink

I was going through Tommy Ton's "Street Fighting Man" pictures on Style.com with the intent of finding pictures for a Gingham print post to some how mix in this post. however, I ended up falling in love with this woman's Burberry [Spring Summer RTW 2013] metallic pink trench coat while she was out enjoying Paris Couture Week. Perhaps it's because of my recent love of 80s styled Carrie Diaries show and girly obsession of all things pink. So I'll just leave my checkered post for tomorrow.

In addition, to the iridescent hologram Ray Ban sunglasses and chic envelope clutches - metallics are another lustrous upgrade to your classic daily look. I for one, have a very simple pair of silver pointy slingbacks that gloss up my formal LBD interview looks or casual Sunday boyfriend jean looks. So don't be afraid to add these futuristic eye-catching items to your wardrobe!

Now Trending: Druzy Stones

Jewelry Collection: “On The Rocks” by Nicaraguan designer, Karla Castillo
Photography: Silvio Balladares

Dark Blue Druzy Double Drop Post Earrings & Organic Interchangable Druzy Earrings by Brazilian Jewelry designer, Marcia Moran.

Both Latin American designers are living a parallel universe with their latest collections featuring Druzy Stones. The druzy stones is a gemstone (quartz crystal) that is usually dyed and available in different colors. They kind of remind me of the stones I would create when I was 7 years old with my awesome geology rock formation kit! #BigBang #Geek #FashionGeek LOL


Parallel Universe: Gucci and Vicente Castellon

before there was Vicente Castellon (Nicaraguan designer) there was Frida Giannini of Gucci - but before anyone saw the RTW 2013 collection by Gucci at Milan, we saw Vicente Castellon's SS13 collection debut at Nicaragua Diseña back in October 2012. great designers, think alike! no copyright issues here. #JustSayin

VC's subtle palette ss13 collection was inspired by an 70's Nicaraguan socialite (whom he rather not name) and Giannini's collection featured brighter Spring colors paging Marella Agnelli and Marisa Berenson. however, they both seemed to be inspired by the late 60s and early 70s and closed their collections with white provocative V-neck gowns and dramatic sleeves.

which ss13 collection do you like?

Gucci, Anja Rubik and Yulia Kharlapanova
Vicente Castellon, Nancy Lopez and Xiomara Blandino

What I Wore: NYE Party

It's quite difficult to appreciate yet again my terrible pictures but I wore a black jumpsuit by BCBG MaxAzria to my NYE party on the Carnival Destiny cruise to Jamaica and Grand Cayman along with some basic black pumps by Elin Kling for GUESS Marciano and Forever 21 necklace.
