Piperlime & Moments of Chic

Skirt: Piperlime Collection / Top: Lanston by Piperlime (similar here) / Boots: Candies / Bag: Zac Posen / Sunnies: H&M / Hat: ASOS 

I’m so happy to announce my first collaboration with Piperlime - Moments of Chic!
Living in a city like New York is always about being comfortable yet making a statement. Yes, it is the tricky challenge of everyday.
No matter how glamorous or extravagant your life is, you have to make your #ootd comfy for the streets. Trust me, is never as glamorous as it seems. Lucky for me, Piperlime  gave me the perfect outfit for me. I was excited when I got my package, not only because pastels are my favorite colors, but this blush midi skirt is right on time for the season. Enough of skinny jeans for a while - There’s always a way to make that summer-fall transition appropriate in a blush skirt. 
In this case, for a Sunday morning walking around South Street Seaport, I wore my Piperlime long sleeve top and midi skirt accessorized with my studded silver necklace, camel booties and my favorite black fedora hat to give what I call a bohemian-girly-girl vibe.
As the Moments of Chic phrase would say, is all about making every day and every occasion a moment of chicness, a moment to remember – and since I couldn’t agree more, I am very excited to be part of such a beautiful collaboration.
Thank you Piperlime for making me part of your #momentsofchic and for the fabulous outfit! How do you dress for a moment of chic?

Love,

The Street Style Recap


Photography by: Sara Castillo, blogger of The Street Styler

There are no words to describe how excited I am about this post. After some technical difficulties I can finally show you some of my amazing street style findings during New York Fashion Week. 
I noticed that no matter how bad the New York City’s humid-weather gets, it is never an excuse for the venue of Fashionistas to hit the streets with their amazing outfits.
The threat of rain during the day doesn’t always mean to “must-wear” rainy boots and take the umbrellas on a big hobo bag. On the contrary, this weather challenge makes people to take outrageous risks and get more creative with their outfit of the day because after all, it was Fashion Week.
The key? Accessories! Backpacks and sneakers were some of the main focal points on the cameras – I guess we’re going back to basics since even Alexander Wang thinks the same way with his SS 15 collection.
Among the feminine crowd there was a lot of crop tops, of course not the trashy kind but a more subtle cut out combined with pants or midi skirts that created a balance of skin-showing. 
The more the days passed the more style-uniqueness I saw. Personally, I believe that every shot is a story to tell and every look is a piece of art .

NYFW vol. 2

Before the fresh breeze of the Fall hit the city, I needed to wear my favorite baby blue midi skirt. Although at the beginning I felt half-naked, I must admit this is one of my favorite looks - flirty, girly and polished. This proves that getting out of your comfort zone sometimes can turn into something great. 
Where did I wore this outfit? Well, I needed to take advantage and wore this beauty for Ricardo Seco's fashion show. Yes, a genius/proud mexican designer presenting his collection at New York Fashion Week. 

Mexico is rich in culture, colorful clothing, delicious food and joyful people, so this look is just what I needed to wear to represent my country in such an important event. I added a white crop top to make my look more bright and girly; the lace detail on the bottom creates a silhouette that makes the look more sophisticated for the occasion. 

Nothing makes me more proud of my country than when I see people fighting for their dreams and making them happen, and so is the case of Mr. Seco and his "Dream" collection presented at the World Trade Center during New York Fashion Week. It was an honor being invited to such an amazing presentation. Looking at his Sporty-chic black and white looks walking down the runway combined with colorful accessories that represent our mexican culture brought a smile to my face and reminded me proudly that #wearemexico ! 

Love,
S

NYFW vol. 1

Walking on the streets of Manhattan is always exciting. On my free time I love to carry my red Nikon camera and see what new perspective and stylist tips I can grab from the streets – therefore my blog “The Street Styler.”
Well, this time was the beginning of Fashion week and while I was walking towards the Lincoln Center, I could see the extra glamorous details in some peoples clothes and accessories – while I kept walking it was not only one out of five in the street but even groups of people with extraordinary sense of style as if they were taking from a magazine ad.
The closer I was to the Lincoln Center, the more contagious was the environment of truly Fashionistas walking around and making the street their runway. Woman with transparent boots, oversized puffy skirts and even some of them walking with their dogs as accessories – and the boys with clutch bags, ridiculous cool sunglasses and extra layers of shirts that made them the perfect gentleman look.
New York Fashion Week is always the most expected time of the year for the fashion industry, is like a wake up call for every one involved - be it magazine editors, public relations companies, designers and models to even bloggers, make up artists and upcoming designers. It is the time where standing out is a challenge and taking your network seriously is the key to succeed. 
There I was walking around Lincoln Center with my red camera matching my red lips, ready to take some shots for today’s post. I must confess I was nervous about of the unknown but once I got there I felt I was finally in the right place. It is a breathtaking experience and luckily for my first day in fashion week, it was easier and fun as it looks like. 

Love,
S
