Summer Getaways: Destination EVERYWHERE

Hello my sweet readers, after a few days without posts I’m finally back! July is almost over and Summer is halfway through. But we still have the August sun. That means more Summer getaways. And if you still haven’t planned out yours, you are just in time to do so. As for me, Los Angeles and Vegas await next week, I’m so excited. So since we are in the middle of the best season of the year, it seems just about right to write about chic and cool holiday destinations and what to wear when on vacation. This is the first post of a series of 5, so be sure to keep checking back everyday for your daily dose.

Let me introduce you to my characters, meet my two sisters and my brother. I chose them because it was about time to introduce them to you, but also because we are so not alike, that each and everyone of us falls into a totally different destination category. So without further ado, here they are:

ANITA “The City Blonde”

Destination style: Asphalt Jungles (NYC, London, Chicago)

Favorite spot: NYC

She’s the ultimate city explorer, she turns big metropolis into her own asphalt jungles. She’ll never go where the tourists go. Instead she is into discovering those hidden jewels, breathing the city and taking it all in. She will want to eat the Big Apple in small bites, savor each bite, slowly…  So for Anita’s guide to NYC, check back tomorrow!

SOPHIE “The Hopeless Romantic”

Destination style: Sweet Settings (Tuscany, French Countryside, Amalfi Coast, Napa Valley)

Favorite spot: Tuscany

That’s me kids. You should all know by now that this blog’s name is how I see my personality. I’m part sweet, I’m part raw. And this definitely belongs to my sugary side. I’m the one who favors a night with wine and a view over partying in a club. It’s the small towns with a story to tell that drive me nuts. Strolling the streets of an ancient city, a colonial villa, a candelight dinner, and always a great bottle of wine, or two, or three. Hey, a girl can be corny every once in a while.

ARMY “The Jet-set Junkie”

Destination style: Glamour beaches (St. Tropez, St. Barths, The Hamptons, Porto Cervo)

Favorite spot: St. Tropez

Meet my little brother. Born sybarite, turned playboy and definitely an epicurean expert. He loves the glitz and glamour, he loves fine dining and he parties with style. If you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, don’t be surprised if he anwers he wants to be Flavio Briatore. So for Army’s advice on the always lavish St. Tropez, check back soon!

JAIME “The Party Princess”

Destination style: Party central (Las Vegas, Ibiza, Miami, Formentera)

Favorite spot: Las Vegas

Where there’s party, there’s Jaime. My little sister is all about the club. She loves bar-hopping, she loves the hot spots. She’s that girl in the club, the hot and fabulous one surrounded by her also fabulous and hot friends. She’s also that girl that when you see her, you can’t help but say: “I want to have as much fun as she is having”. So if you are planning a partying frenzy for your holiday vacation, she’s the one to turn to when it comes to Vegas.

So there you have it, four siblings, four different destinations for you to check out! Over the week, I will be posting one destination per day, with outfit suggestions, hot spots and places you definitely have to see. So if you are preparing yourself for a romantic holiday, a glamour beach, a party city or a metropolis, you are in the right place!

Sweet kisses….

NAIL FILES: It’s Getting Hot in Here…

Summer is on and hotter than ever. The beach is the place to be right now. Picture yourself in a stunning and flashy bikini, your best sandals, a sheer and chic coverup, your classic Ray Ban aviators, holding a giant Mojito. What could be missing in this fabulous equation? The perfect mani-pedi. And since Summer is a synonym for fun, let your paws look like a beach ball! Bright colors and a killer tan are a match made in heaven. Wearing a hot pink tank top over your perfectly roasted skin (alway wear sunscreen) will always make you pop, and will make a lot of heads turn. So with your nails, same effect. Plus, bright hues are always much more fun and happy than a classic beige (leave that for a wedding) or the too serious crimson (leave that for a work meeting). Here at Sweet’n’Raw, we took the task upon ourselves to find the best nail colors of the Summer. So here they are:

WANNA BE MY FLAMINGO?

  • Come to Poppy, OPI
  • Collide, Ilamasqua
  • Super Bossa Nova, Essie
  • Steamy, MAC
TEQUILA SUNRISE
  • Rare, Ilamasqua
  • Lightening, Sally Hansen
  • Yellow Brick Road, Deborah Lippman
  • La Laque Surreal Yellow, YSL
ORANGE CRUSH
  • Braziliant, Essie
  • A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find, OPI
  • Gamma, Ilamasqua
  • Lara’s Theme, Deborah Lippman (with Lara Stone)
ELECTRIC WAVE
  • La Laque in Utopian Turquoise, YSL
  • Sephora by OPI
  • Bermuda, Forever 21
  • Neon Blue, American Apparel
COLOR ME GREEN
  • Lickety-split Lime, Sally Hansen
  • Radium, Ilamasqua
  • Gargantuan Green Grape, OPI
  • Neon Green, American Apparel
Sexy, fun and flirty fingers & toes, for a sexy, fun and flirty kind of girl!
From the lovely beach and hoping you are having a Summer blast,
Sweet kisses…

Fall Couture 2011: THE MEMORABLE

Twice a year in Paris, we get to see more than fashion and trends, we get to see art on the runways. In those few minutes, the designers give us a piece of their genius, their hard work, drama, elegance, eccentricity, lavishness and luxuriance. Couture is not just a show, it’s art at its best. And this year was no exception, some of them blew our minds, some enriched our pupils, others made us swoon and drool, and others, well let’s just say we’d rather forget. But to my humble opinion there were three who exceeded my expectations.

First honorable mention goes to italian wonder, Giambattista Valli

A game of volume and flowing fabrics. Movement in colorful fucsia and red. Monochromatic floral and animal print embellished with feathers. Garments cinched with golden, baroque belts. Overall, a gorgeous collection, but also a fun one. Fun to watch, would have lots of fun wearing. Lovey Signore Valli.

Sweet’n’Raw’s favorite looks:

A standing ovation to the man of the hour, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy

Godesses in gold and white. Heavely bodies wrapped up in beautiful, crafted gowns. Mr. Tisci showcased 10 angel looking beauties, among them my favorite brazilian bombshell, Iza Goulart. White, gold and sheer reigned in Paris for the show. Embrodiery, handwork, lots of it, beading, and more. An exquisite technique that can only belong to the master of darkness, the gread Riccardo Tisci.

Sweet’n’Raw’s favorite looks

Better than ever, Azzedine Alaïa

He has always dealt with fashion his way, he has always done fashion setting his own times. He doesn’t believe in pressure. And this is the result of how he creates. His first Couture in eight years, and it was a great one. Fur, croc-stamped leather in coats, coat dresses, each garment perfectly crafted and tailored. A standing ovation at the end was expected and well deserved.

Sweet’nRaw’s favorite looks

FRONT ROW ROYALTY

Anna dello Russo: Amazingly perfect in every single way

For more Couture and some sunny posts, check back tomorrow. From Acapulco,

Sweet kisses…

The Daily Fashion Bread: July 12, 2011

Hello my sweet readers! After a 5 day pause (I’m so sorry about that) I am back to bring you some freshly baked bread! And since the fashion industry doesn’t stop, even if I am on holiday, here are some highlights.

  • Armani underwear goes bad Hollywood bombshell, Megan Fox, has been replaced! The italian designer has chosen a bad girl as the new spokesperson for the underwear and jeans ad campaigns. With the distinguished Victoria Beckham as his first choice a few years ago and the world’s hottest woman, Miss Fox as his second one, Mr. Armani is spicing things up a bit this year. Rihanna, well known for her daring fashion, risquè outfits and rauchy performances, has already shot the ads that are set to come out this September. Brace yourselfs for some wild photos, sexy poses and a touch of porn. Thank God those ads will be black & white, I’m kind of sick of her channeling Bozo the Clown.

  • Kenzo and Antonio Marras parts ways The LVMH group announced today that the italian designer is to be replaced with retail duo, Humberto de Leon and Carol Lim. The pair behind the store Opening Ceremony were chosen in an attempt to refresh the brand. Opening Ceremony has had major success since the opening in 2002. Antonio Marrras was creative director of the brand for 8 years and has his own brand. Little do we know about his future, but the rumors are starting to say he could be the next head designer at Dior.
  • Mariacarla is on fire The 30 year old italian is better than ever and at the top of her modeling game. At that age, usually modeling careers are over or about to end. But for Mariacarla Boscono, this is not the case. It’s well-known that she is Riccardo Tisci’s muse. But for this season, she seems to be everyone’s favorite girl. We will be seeing her as one of the faces of Givenchy this fall, along with Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova, as the star of Loewe’s glamorous and a bit raw campaign, and with Natasha Poly and Karen Elson for the always dramatic, Roberto Cavalli.
  • Swanepoel is definitely high fashion We know her for her Victoria’s Secret’s wings and some other catwalk now and then. But for this coming season, Candice is the face of the man of the hour (every hour that is), Tom Ford. Shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, the South African beauty showcases a sexy, fierce, glamorous woman. The shots are brigh with color, glossy and with a touch of drama. For the gentleman, Tom has given us the gorgeous Jon Kortajarena, looking slick, sophisiticated and cool.
  • Balenciaga Fall/Winter Campaign Now this is a first! Nicolas Ghesquière has released a backstage video of his new ad campaign, featuring models Liya Kebede, Liisa Winkler, and Julia Nobis. It was shot by Steven Meisel, who has been very busy this year. Click here to see the video.
  • Hermione Granger’s last red carpet This is the last we’ll see of the Harry Potter character, certainly we will be seeing a lot more of the british beauty, Emma Watson. For the New York premiere of the film, Emma chose a daring and interesting Bottega Veneta gown. Not a safe choice, but definitely Miss Granger really pulled it off, as always.
Check back tomorrow for some Haute Couture
Sweet kisses…

IN YOUR BAG: Come fly with me

Traveling has become quite an art for me, especially when it comes to 12 hour flights. From every airport experience I have learned at least one thing. But a rule I live and swear by is to never forget your essentials. After walking around endless terminals with the wrong carry-on (I wanted to show-off my Old School suitcase so I decided against my other one with wheels and ended up almost losing my arm blood flow), chosing the least practical handbag, walking around in heels with my feet almost bleeding and then having to go barefoot for security controls because I decided to travel sans socks, I now have a checklist. Yes, an actual checklist, there you can find the items that need to ALWAYS accompany me on a plane ride. You can’t pull a Mary Poppins on your bag, but you sure can make most of the space you have inside it. And since the regulations say one cannot travel with bottles that have more than 100ml, that’s a bit of a helper.

Choosing your bag is the first important thing to do. Stay away from totes or anything without a zipper. The more difficult the access, the least someone will want to get near your stuff while you are sleeping (trust me, I’ve heard stories about people getting robbed up in the air). It’s also essential to pick one with lots of compartments and inside pockets, that way you can have everything organized and find whatever you are looking for in a jiffy (I sometimes am the kind of person who kneels down, places the bag on the floor and starts the quest for the lost object). A shoulder bag, a cross-body, a hobo, anything that can hang from your shoulder, that way you can handle better your carry-on, the 8 magazines and candy you bought, your Starbucks latte and your jacket, oh and your duty free purchases (I’m such a female traveler cliché). But now let’s get to the point, what has to be inside that practical bag of yours?

CLEAN & CLEAR

As a woman, I wish we girls could travel with our entire bathroom cabinet, to hell with it, I wish I had a private jet with a bath tub in it! But since that’s not a possibility, we have to make the most out of those little 100ml bottles in order to survive our flights. Always carry a pocket sized body splash, after those long hours of sleeping in the same tupperware we like to call plane, you and your clothes are definitley in need of fresh fragrance. H&M sells this little cute 4 bottle packs, perfect for our purses. MOISTURIZE, that’s the key to a long flight. Always keep with you a small tube of hand cream and your sunblock, I recommend always Anthelios AE from La Roche Posay. Antibacterial gel is a must inside your bag, airports and planes are always infested with germs. Mineral water spray (Avene or Evian) is a great traveling companion, helps you refresh your face and keeps it hydrated. And last but definitely not least, a pocket toothbrush kit. Seriously people, chewing gum is not an alternative to teeth brushing, even if it says so in the gum package.

THE BEAUTY BAR

Every girl needs to always look polished. It doesn’t matter if we have just endured a 15 hour flight and have one gigantic butt cheek instead of two smaller ones, a girl is always a girl. I’m not telling you to put on dark eyeliner, bronzer and rouge lipstick (actually I’m advising you against the whole tranny hooker-morning after look), but to pack on those 6 or 7 products that will make your face look natural and fresh even after 6 beers and air pressure. In a very cute cosmetic bag you should always have the following:

  • Concealer: no raccoon eyes, no bags, no swollen eyes. You can have all that with this simple miracle worker. I like to use Benefit’s Erase Paste
  • Powder and pocket brush: To give your face a little color, a little life after the flight, always carry your compact. If it has a mirror, even better. If not, get a pocket mirror. I like MAC’s Skinfinish Natural Powder
  • Benetint: This is a must in every girl’s makeup bag. You can color your cheeks naturally, you can tint your lips in a gorgeous shade of cherry and manage to look fresh and never over the top
  • White metallic eyeliner: For the inside corner of your eyes, it will make you appear more awake and aware than you are without a caffeine high.
  • Brow gel: Keep your wild ones tame with a brush gel for your eye brows. Natural, without coloring, Benefit’s Speed Brow is a must-have.
  • Pocket eyelash curler and mascara: We females cannot live without mascara, our lashes are like souls to our faces. Japonesque makes great curlers and in very cute colors (pastels are my favorite) and for mascara, Maybelline’s Falsies is a great buy. Never waterproof for traveling, it’s worse for you eyes.
  • Lipgloss: Go with one that has moisturizer, a cute shade of rasperry to get your lips more lively looking. I like Philosophy’s Raspberry Sorbet.
THE COMFORT ZONE
Some airlines are kind enough to give you a travel kit, others give you just a cheap pillow and a blanket. That’s why one has to be prepared for the worst. Ever end up making a pillow out of your jacket? Or have you ever ended up sleeping on the shoulder of the strange guy sitting nex to you? That’s why you should always carry with you a travel pillow. Great for your neck, great for support and it actually allows you to sleep decently while you are on your very stiff and uncomfortable seat. Go for the inflatable ones, you can stick them into your purse and still have a lot of room for your other stuff. Wether it’s the annoying man who won’t shut his window or the lady that likes to read with the light on your face, an eye mask helps against this kind of hostility. Nowadays you can find them with aloe vera or aromatherapy to relax your body. And then there is the socks, a pair of thick, comfy and warm pair of socks. Avoid cold feet, and also avoid that dreadful moment where the police officer makes you take of your shoes and walk barefoot at the security checkpoint.
GADGETS & EXTRAS
Time will always fly by quicker when you have some entertainment. I confess I spend a lot in cheap magazines that only last me for the first hour of my flight. And if you are not that lucky and are traveling with an airline that doesn’t have a personal screen with a movie menu and has only 4 televisions for the whole coach area (hello Delta Airlines!), you better be armed with some gadgets to ease your suffering. A notebook or sketchbook, great ideas always come to mind in situations like this, also the pen will be useful when filling out forms. My beloved Nook, you can carry tons of books wihout the load. And if you are into real tearjerkers, be sure to download Sisterhood Everlasting by Anne Brashares. The odd stares of my fellow passengers after shedding some tears was totally worth it, I nearly finished the book in 8 hours. The Ipod is a must in my life, and on a plane I need it more than I need breathing. Finally some tissues (never know when you are going to cry with a book) and a document envelope, whick I also use as a case for my nook!
Before I go, a quick word of advice:
Dress comfy, but never loose your style. And never, ever wear a velour tracksuit, I don’t care if it’s Juicy Couture or if it was hand made by Yves Saint Laurent himself (he would’ve never made one anyway), it’s just cheap…. and tacky!
So to all of those like me, who are getting ready to fly, pack wisely and Bon Voyage!
Sweet kisses…

HOLA MEXICO!

As I have already told you, I am back for the Summer in my beloved hometown, Mexico City. After losing one day in a plane, two airports, nauseating food and a whole lot of security checkpoints, I am finally here with my family. And although I am used to living alone, I feels as if I had never left. I get to spend two months here, I am really happy and excited, for myself but also for the blog. I am really looking forward to showing you, my lovely readers, a piece of my Mexico. How I see it and how I live it. Trust me, Mexico is not how you see it in the news, there’s a lot more to it. So stick with me in this journey. First destination, the beautiful Acapulco for a much needed tan!

Sweet kisses…

PS: A new post coming up soon!

Move over Karlie Kloss, suck it Arizona Muse. There’s a new model in town. And no, it’s not this month’s covergirl Anne Hathaway. Featured inside the magazine sporting next season’s most coveted accessories, she’s fabulous, she’s fierce and she’s also blue. Hello Smurfette! With her movie coming out this summer, is her turn for the spotlight. Harper’s Bazaar dedicated a 4 page spread to the blueish blonde. Wearing Marc, Vuitton, Dolce and Lanvin, she is a sight for sore eyes.Marvelous in Marc: Looking cute and sassy in polka dots, thanks to the man himself, Marc Jacobs.

Luscious in LV: If looks could kill, they would probably be wearing this Louis Vuitton boots.

Lady wears Lanvin: She owns the hat, she owns the gloves, she owns the whole look!

Dolce Delight: Somewhere around the globe, there is one jealous Anna dello Russo.

Like the teaser said, the world’s about to get Smurf’d. Don’t be surprised if Smurf Papa is next on GQ or Gragamel in well…. Gothic Magazine?

I promise a big post tomorrow, with all the packing frenzy (I’m leaving in two days for my beloved Mexico) I haven’t had much time!

The Daily Fashion Bread: July 1, 2011

Finally Friday! Lots of things happening this weekend, sales are starting, Prince Albert is marrying Charlene, Kate Moss is tying the knot as we speak, and 4th of July is just around the corner. In the meantime, here is your piece of hot and fashionable bread!Mr. and Mrs. Jaime Hince. A few moments ago, the Royal Wedding of fashion took place. Iconic Kate Moss married rocker Jaime Hince. The supermodel wore a stunning dress made by John Galliano, as it was expected, with a pair of shoes from Manolo Blahnik. The bride looked gorgeous and natural (at least one Kate exceeded my expectations). The Groom was wearing YSL, as was his best man/woman, the fabulous Alison Mossheart. The guests included Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney. It’s nice to hear John Galliano’s name again linked to a dress and not to the words court or racism.

  • Fall sneak peek. As the summer season is passing by, the fall campaigns are starting to surface. This week it was Givenchy’s turn, showing legendary model, Naomi Campbell, doing some snarling. Campbell, along with Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy and Mariacarla Boscono are looking fierce, perfect for Riccardo Tisci’s Pantera mode. WATCH THE MAKING OF HERE  Then we have Chanel’s leaked images, where we can appreciate the fabulous Freja Beha Erichsen channeling a cat. The model was styled by the amazing Carine Roitfeld and shot by the Kaiser himself. We are seeing a lot of wilderness for the coming season, Are you feeling the feline vibe? And last but not least, True Grit’s acting prodigy, Hailee Steinfeld as the star of Miu Miu’s new campaign. The first ads were realeased this week. Shot by Bruce Weber, the young actress looks lovely and chic for the italian brand. Makeup and styling looking not a day over 14. Nice!

  • Victoria Beckham is always news. But this time it’s not about Victoria the mom, but about the fashion designer. Ater the great success of her main line, the former spice girl has just announced the birth of her second and slightly cheaper brand, Victoria by Victoria Beckham. The collection, set to be released for Spring 2012, is very different from her usual creations. Girlier and brighter, she took inspiration from the cartoon character, Emily the Strange. With a bit of a 1960′s vibe, Victoria is also targeting younger costumers. We’ll see how it plays out. Will you be buying?

  • Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani does it again “I dislike men in fashion. I don’t like it when a man dresses as a fashionista. I don’t think it’s attractive at all. Women in fashion, on the other hand, are very attractive. Women can always make you dream.” It’s not the first time the italian editor stris controversy, first with her strong opinions about fashion bloggers, now against men who dress fashionably. She likes to spice things up every once in a while.
  • Former Vogue Russia’s editor gets new gig.With billionaire Vladislav Doronin, also known as Naomi Campbell’s boyfriend and Bernard Runge as investors, Aliona Doletsakaya will be launching Interview magazine Germany and Russia by the end of 2012.
Sweet kisses…

S/S Selection: PRADA

Summer is here, our vactions are just around the corner. And what better way to prepare ourselves for the holidays than to get into Signora Miuccia’s colorful and fruity vibe. This was probably one of the best collections of the season, along with Jil Sander and Dolce & Gabbana. This was also the collection that snagged more magazine covers and that drove us all fashion lovers bananas. And since summer and color are a match made in heaven, channeling Prada seems like the right thing to do. Colorful stripes, strong prints, ruffles, embroidery and even those delicious fox scarves were among the things we saw on the runway last september. And in a very fashionable and predictable way, retailers all around the world, copied the trend making it available to us mortals. And since the July sales are about to begin, you might find those garments half price. Isn’t fashion the most wonderful thing?

So since I’m in a holiday mood right now (my plane for Mexico City departs in exactly four days and Acapulco, LA and Vegas are waiting for me), I bring to you an item selection to “Pimp with Prada” (or the next best thing) that suitcase of yours!

  • THE H&M BIKINI: This bikini has been photographed, bought and worn by thousands of people all over the globe. Clearly inspired by Miuccia Prada’s trend, this bandeau top with string bottoms is a must-have (that is if you can still find it, and if you find it, you’ll be paying it half price!).
  • THE MANGO SWIRL CROPPED SHIRT: Still available online (RUN FORREST RUN!), this t-shirt is a knock-off of the one worn by Hannah Noble on Prada’s S/S 2011 runway. But it’s a knock-off gone great. Tons of bloggers and fashion icons have it in their closets. And why not? It’s the closest thing to Prada, and really pocket friendly.
  • ASOS BANANA PENDANT: Everyone went for the earrings, but you can go for the pendant. Cheap, flashy and very Prada, buy it while you can! With a flirty polka dot bikini or with a white tank and a pair of shorts, you will nail it!
  • H&M STRIPED TOTE: When I saw it in the store, I immediately thought of Prada. This bag can be worn with a pair of jeans for casual, you can even take it to the beach (I know, there is leather in it, but the stripes give it a more casual vibe). You can get it for only 24.95 Euros, or maybe with a discount,
  • ASOS BELTED DRESS: Also a copy of that dress that was so well worn by Amanda Seyfried in an Elle cover (and she was not the only one). Flirty but classy, with colors that’ll make you pop, wear it with a pair of woven wedges and you can even throw in a hat. How very Hamptons of you!
  • PRADA FOX SCARF: Probably impossible to get, I dream of hugging it every night. But hey, a girl can dream. I just had to put it in my post and I felt an adrenaline rush just by drawing it. If you are among the lucky ones who have it hanging in a closet, take a picture and send it to me so I can cry.
  • ASOS BANANA BODYCON SKIRT: Great to show off your knockout figure and your killer legs. Pair it with a striped top or a silky, bright one and some statement shoes. It’s all about going over the top!
  • STRIPED TANK TOP: A basic that can give you your money’s worth. This one is Diesel but I can guarantee every store is carrying their own version. Tucked inside a flashy skirt, with a pair of cutt-offs or as a beach cover-up, by the end of the Summer, it’s going to be all worn out.
  • TOPSHOP EMBORIDERED HOTPANTS: Same as with the Mango shirt, but in a pair of shorts. How great is that? Get your pair ASAP! I see the as Prada with a twist.
  • PRADA CAT-EYE SUNNIES: All I can say is: “Thank you Miuccia”. The most stylish sunglasses of the season, and probably of the decade. If you cross paths with them, don’t even hesitate and remeber “For everything else, there’s Mastercard”.
LOOKS
I put together two outfits for you as well. One is more for the beach, the other one is more dressy and suitable for afternoon drinks.
LOOK 1:
Tanning session and poolside drinks! This is the outfit you want to be wearing. Relaxed and comfortable, but keeping the style. H&M’s Banana Tank top tucked into a striped, colorful culotte from ASOS. Underneath a flirty and retro bikini top in green, from the fabulous Betsey Johnson. The infamous banana bottoms from H&M. I have a thing for mixing separates, I have so much fun with it and the result is always amazing! Prada’s dramatic sunglasses and a pair of Promise wedges (please don’t walk in the sand with heels, Shauna Sand is not a role model, EEK!).
LOOK 2:
For a more dressy occasion, dinner date, drinks with friends, I chose a midi skirt in bright orange. It also makes me think a little about Jil Sander for a second. To tone it down a notch, an embroidered Mango t-shirt (I think Mango reallly pulled it off this season). A Prada striped clutch for a more evening look. Pumps with a woven platform from LULUS.COM. For accessories, the fabulous and amazing starfish bracelet from Bimba & Lola. Also, the YSL arty ring, a MUST-HAVE in your jewelry case. Another ring to add more drama from ASOS and a bright nail polish shade from ESSIE.
I hope you liked my take on Prada for the summer! And for tomorrow, check back for some Daily Fashion Bread.
Sweet kisses…
