Ready, Set, GO!


Happy New Year everyone! I hope all of you are as excited as I am for 2013! This new year is full of new projects, new goals and new surprises that I can’t wait to share with all of you! Here are some sneak-peeks for 2013…

1. 5 Girls night outs – Remember my 26 dreams list where I shared some meaningful goals for 2013? One of my ideas was to host five fun girls night outs and with time rushing by I need to start soon! It didn’t take long to have my friends RSVP to my DIY Girls Night Out Party. Next Thursday, the party theme is: DIY BATH SCRUB. Stay tuned for the Girls Night Out Day and for ideas on how to make your own party.

2. Monthly styled photo shoot with Jackie from Three Brooklyn Photography – I guess some of you noticed that the blog pictures suddenly got better! I own that to Jackie Segedin from Three Brooklyn Photography. Jackie is a girl who like me is starting her own business and has amazing creative ideas. She and I decided to come together to bring you a styled photo shoot each month, for inspiration, trends or just for fun! Stay tuned at the beginning of each month.

3.  My Handmade Wedding – I am finally getting married to the man of my life in a religious ceremony later this year. This is the most personally inspiring project of my life and I can’t wait to share it with you step by step! I decided to go for a locally hand-made wedding, where most of my vendors are starting their own businesses, friends are helping me out with some DIYs and I am designing and working on The dress! This is such an exciting time for me and by sharing it with you I plan on receiving feedback, inspiration and support ♥

26 Dreams


One of my Facebook friends posted her “dream list” and it inspired me to sit down and think about meaningful goals that I want to accomplish soon. This year went by really fast! It seems like only yesterday I was celebrating my 25th birthday (don’t worry this is not a crisis) all I’m saying is, writing down hopes, dreams and goals can really help you focus and materialize them! Do you have any meaningful or special goals you want to accomplish? Share them below and for inspiration here you have mine…

What I’m Thankful For This Year


 

 

I am a very lucky girl because every year I have lots of things for which I’m thankful and happy for. Last year one of my dreams came true, I was able to open my studio and boutique. I can’t lie to you, it has been very hard, as most small business owners say, you end up working 24/7 and sometimes frustration can take a hold of your best senses! But with hard work and dedication I have been able to grow my business and slowly turn it into a small fashion line!

Recently, to commemorate my first year in business, I decided to give my studio a makeover, and host a bloggers tea party, take a look below for our new look and drop me a line with your thoughts!

I also have to thank Jackie at Three Brooklyn Photography, for really helping me create beautiful pictures, and understanding my ideas and taking this gorgeous photos!

 

Thank you Daniella Garcia, who is bringing great energy and ideas to our studio and helped me host the most fabulous blogger’s tea party!

Thank you to my husband and family who believe in my dreams more than anyone in the world!

 

And thank YOU! for reading my blog, following me and supporting my dream! You are really helping me make this happen!

 

Have a happy thanksgiving with your family or friends ❤

I wore a fleet collection dress, Emerald earrings by Carolina Benoit, Emerald pendant by Carolina Benoit.

I discovered Fleet Collection thanks to the www.copious.com website, which just launched a Pinterest promotion with both of our collections! To win, all you have to do is  Click Here for the board, and pin your favorite pieces! 

Have a great weekend everyone! 

Project Las Vegas 2012


Project is the other show by WWD Magic where up and coming designers from around the world showcase their collections…

The bags by AG were chic enough to carry all the brochures and info, plus my ipad.

The emerging designers showcase! My favorite!

I had the opportunity to meet with Kaitlyn Barclay, she is the community marketing manager at www.copious.com, one of the up and coming shopping and selling platforms, strongly promoted at WWD Magic for their innovation.If you love shopping online but cannot seem to find the right item then,  join copious and curate your own shopping page in a way similar to Pinterest.

WWD Magic Las Vegas 2012


 

I can’t contain my happiness of being able to visit WWD MAGIC this year! I took many pictures for all of us who dream of being part of this amazing show in the future. 

For all of you who don’t know about Magic, it is a fashion trade show dedicated to the Ready-To-Wear, business, trends and Buying aspects of fashion.  I believe it holds the same or even more importance than New York Fashion Week. 

 

 

 

 I loved the succulent displays at Dylan, the clothing was out of this world!

 

 

I was very surprised to see the oversized flowers that Design Sponge and Ruche placed on the spotlight, now being displayed all over the show! They really give a new dimension to the clothing!

 

 

Window Shopping anyone?

 

My favorite fashion show was the swimwear fashion show, where delicate swimsuits show what’s to come Spring 2013

 

 The Darling display was one of the best ones! And the oh! so delicate clothing and accessories stole my heart. 

 

I hated the closed booths, however this one turned heads!

 

 

 

 

As a designer, it is an energizing experience! I am very glad I didn’t miss it and that I will be attending every year! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Las Vegas And Her Sweet Side


Although WWDMAGIC, SOURCING, PROJECT and all the shows take most of my time, I can’t deny myself the tourist moments here in Las Vegas…

This trip has been an amazing learning experience for me! Attending WWDMAGIC  completely changed my “fashion mind” and I can’t wait to post all the different shows, designers, and information so you feel like you are learning here with me! 

In the meantime, on my brakes, I have taken pictures of the “romantic” side of Las Vegas… Enjoy them, and don’t forget to enter the Las Vegas giveaway!
