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…

My First Feature On A Glossy Magazine


A month ago I was reached by Mollie Makes Magazine from the UK because they wanted to feature the geometric Merengue Shift Dress from my Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I had been feature in magazines and newspapers as a designer, but this is the first time that my work reaches the pages of a glossy magazine! I am beyond happy!

The magazine is not for sale until August 3 in the UK, but I was given a sneak-peek from the editors so you can take a look at it.

Mollie Makes curates the best craft around the world into a tactile, collectible and irresistible magazine (In other words, if you love to make things, and websites of handmade items such as Etsy or Copious, then you’ll love this magazine)

In their own words:

“We love to make – handmade is more than just a hobby for us, it’s in everything we do. We can’t resist hunting down treasures in thrift stores, then customizing, re-covering and embellishing our finds with our endless stash of ribbons, buttons, fabrics and felt.We’re forever on the lookout for new inspiration. Whatever we do, we’re living and loving handmade.”

♡ Making ♡ Thrifting ♡ Collecting ♡ Crafting

This look inspired by Lana Del Rey… just for fun.

The Spring Items at the studio look amazing! I am so happy with the new designers at the store, every day we have even more gorgeous designs! 🙂 Don’t miss this shopping experience. If you are in Florida, you can either set up and appointment or we can take the items to your home, for an even more private shopping experience.

If you are outside of the US or Florida, you can talk to us about your style and we can create private albums for you with items that fit your taste! Easy, Private, Fast!

Working on my Spring collection has really been an exhausting process… hopefully very soon you will have a sneak-peek, and more posts to come…

Do you have your outfit for Valentine’s day yet? I have all of your needs, from cocktail dresses for a girl’s night out, to gorgeous looks for a love date…

While seasons ago brocade and polka dots were a faux pas today this combination is  a must have, this is the perfect date look, dress it down with a denim jacket, dress it up with a pair of heels.

Contact me for a complimentary personal styling appointment 🙂 or slip my website address to your man and friends so they know where to shop for your special V-DAY gift.

La Fille Mal Gardée


Play this song while watching the photos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfEflYM5V_8


Tulle dress: Carolina Benoit,  Shoes: Prada, Earrings ??? no idea (gift), Perfume holder: Vintage.

I love this tulle dress not only because it is beautiful but also because I made it out of my mom’s wedding veil, so when I wear it I feel like I am wearing a love story.

La fille mal gardee is a ballet about a couple who are in love and want to marry, but (there is always a but), the girl’s  mother wants her to marry a very wicked, but very rich man; the end is for you to find out but the main idea is that love conquers all, distances, differences and whatever other forces… I have never failed to believe in true, eternal, passionate and explosive love.

ps. Why love? Valentine’s day is around the corner!!! I find it weird that people don’t like this day, I have always loved it!
