Sweet n’Raw’s styling sheets: VFNO

Hello, hello my sweet readers! The day is finally here, NYFW is on and today, in most of the world’s biggest cities we get to celebrate fashion. Vogue Fashion’s Night Out has become one of the highlights of the season. VFNO is a night where the streets become ours and the stores even more (even if that Chanel 2.55 will still be out of my budget tonight), a night where bumping into Anna dell Russo is 99% possible (trust me, that happened to me last year and yes, then I followed her around), a night in which even if fashion is not your thing, you get to join the cult (the coolest cult of them all, if you ask me). So before heading out the door with your 5 inch heels and all your fabulousness, I whipped up an outfit that may or may not inspire your VFNO ensemble. Of course, the Jonathan Saunders t-shirt is the main item. Ready?

This little t-shirt is what almost everyone will be wearing tonight and that, most of the time in fashion, is a true crime (someone wearing the same dress you are wearing at the same party, oh God), but not today. Today we get to wear the same t-shirt because we get to put our on spin on it! It’s a celebration of personal style! Some may wear it underneath a tutu dress, some with a biker jacket and a skirt, some with some fierce, printed jeans Me? I went for sequins and tuxedo! I added some leopard and pink because the outfit was just screaming leopard and pink! Here it is:

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA

  • Card holder: This baby from Smythson fits perfectly inside your fabulous clutch. Don’t forget your ID, your gonna be needing it for the fabulous party you will be attending after!
  • Camera: sometimes the iPhone is not enough. You outfit, the people you meet, the fabulous thing you’ll see are camera  worth. Even if it doesn’t fit inside the bag, it’s a must!
  • Mints: fresh breath and no chewing, you’ll be needing it after one to many champagne flutes.
  • Note pad and a pen always come in handy! Need to make some notes for a post? Need to remember what you saw? Need to give out your digits to some hunky male model? Thank me later!
  • iPhone with a fab cover: Swash, that’s all we need to say… Oh and Instagram too!
  • Hot pink lips: hey, it’s a night about fun and bright lips are fun!
  • Blush and brush: Keep you cheekbones picture perfect with Nars Orgasm, this baby never leaves my bag
  • Body butter: I’m the ultimate moisturize junkie! If I know I’m gonna be flashing my legs, I like to keep them shiny at all times! Bliss body butter kills it!
  • Black eyeliner: party lips need party eyes!

That’s it! Now we are ready to go! Tomorrow we will be starting the runway coverage so stay tuned!

Sweet kisses and happy Fashion Week…

SUMMER GETWAYS 2012: The Party Princess (evening)

Finally Friday, my sweet readers! And Friday definitely calls for the perfect party outfit! That’s why today I wanted to give you a club ready ensemble, from the one and only Party Princess, our dear Jaime. This is the second post from the Summer Getaways series, evening round. So if you are at the gate, waiting for your Vegas flight while you are reading this, if Miami is what’s on the menu this weekend, if you intend to party till you drop, then you’ll need a killer look to get some serious heads turning your way. Colorful, shiny, bright and sexy, that’s all you need! Here’s what I came up with:

  • Sequin shorts are definitely a party girl’s best ally. Whether you go colored, silver or with embroidered details, it’s the best choice.
  • If you have a larger bottom, look for shorts with more coverage. Nude cheeks hanging out in the open are for Rap guys girlfriends.
  • I like to pair detailed garments with simple ones, to give them the attention they deserve. Go with a basic, sleeveless top. Avoid the necklace, you want all the attention on your legs and cheeks (lower cheeks).
  • There was a time when matching your purse to your shoes was a rule, my newest obsession is matching my purse to my top.
  • For jewelery, golden arm candy and a thin ring
  • For your nails, a sweet shade of pink to keep on with the colorful vibe

WHAT JAIME IS WEARING

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA

There you go! Now you are ready to party, Vegas style!

Happy Friday! Sweet kisses…

Sweet’n’Raw’s Styling Sheets: BON VOYAGE!

The day is finally here, my sweet readers! Tomorrow I’ll be crossing the Atlantic before touching Aztec soil. Two times a year I get to visit my lovely country, that’s why Summer means so much to me. In spirit of tomorrow’s flight, I whipped up a styling sheet for those of you, who like me, are jetting off in the next few days. Airport style can be tricky. Some women have the misconception that “designer” comfort is allowed when travelling. Designer comfort for those tacky species means: velour Juicy Couture tracksuit, a pair of UGGs, the biggest sunnies on Earth(usually with the D&G or Versace logo in Swarovski crystals) and a big ass Louis Vuitton tote. This is the ultimate airport style sin, no matter how expensive your whole attire (adding the diamond collar on the Chihuaha named Candy Princess), you’ll always end up looking cheap. So yes, you need to look put together, but never over the top. A pair of stilettos and skin-tight clothes will en dup working against you after a 12 hour flight. Anyway, I’m gonna make this quick since I still have to wrap up the packing, the organizing and get a few hours of sleep before the departure. Here’s what I recommend:

AIRPORT LOOK

Chinos are my favorite bottoms when it comes to flying, comfy but never frumpy. Add some knitwear and a cute jacket, throw some killer sneakers into the mix or a pair of ballerinas and voila!

IN YOUR BAG

I think Mulberry bags or similar ones are the perfect travel companions. They have straps and handles for comfort, buckles and zippers for security and they lovely to look at!

Splurge: MULBERRY Alternatives: ZARA & VANESSA BRUNO

Last but not least, the bag essentials (usually I’m quite descriptive and witty with each item , but time is running out and I really need to get everything done):

1. MAKE ME PRETTY: After a long flight, a few touch-ups before leaving the aircraft are needed. Hey, if looking pretty and winking are gonna mekr the whole immigration thing easier…

  • Pocket perfume
  • Lip balm
  • Creamy nude lipstick (this is D&G)
  • Stila stick concealear (better and less messier than liquid ones)
  • Nars Orgasm blush and brush (peachy cheeks are rejuvenating)
  • Benefit brown eyeliner
  • Speedy brow form Benefit (a miracle worker)

2. FIX ME UP: Dehydration, smudges, bad breath and fatigue can all be beaten!

  • Pocket tooth brush (not even gonna comment on this one)
  • Avene thermal water spray (may sound snobbish, but it does help refresh)
  • Hope moisturizer from Philosophy (hydrates, protects form UV rays, HOPE is all you need)
  • Baby wipes (needed when least expected)
  • Ani-bac (let your inner Howard Hughes take over inside the aircraft)
  • Lip moisturizer

3. RELAX, TAKE IT EASY: I’m one who can’t really sleep inside buses, cars or airplanes. This is what I need.

  • Sleeping beauty eye mask
  • Earphones
  • Neck pillow
  • Cozy socks (also for security checkpoints, God forbid I walk barefoot while my shoes are on a plastic tray).
  • Sleeping pills (yes, I need them, don’t judge me)

4. LIFESAVERS: have them at all times with you, you’ll need them

  • Document leather envelope (passport, tickets, visas, money, your whole life)
  • Wallet (we are nothing without the dough, sad, but true)
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • Tissues
  • Notepad and pen (paper and ink are always useful)
  • Water, lots of it (not the silly little glasses they pour you on coach)

I’m off to finish packing! Next time, I’ll write from Mexico City!

Sweet kisses…

Sweet’n’Raw’s Barely Dressed: CROCHET SHORTS

Good morning my sweet readers! As I told you before, today’s post is part of Sweet’n’Raw’s new sections. Remeber the “Wear me out and dress me down post” (if you didn’t read it or want to do it again, click HERE), well this is the second part of three. The WEAR ME OUT is a three post story on how to wear Summer essentials in three different ways: dressed up, dressed down and barely dressed. Today we are going to focus on the barely dressed part, since we are starting to make our first trips to the beach. Yes, barely dressed is all about how to style this garments with bikinis and beachy sandals. The crochet shorts, in case you haven’t noticed yet, are everywhere this season. Creamy, white, burgundy or black, I own them in almost every color (even black, and I am a total absence of black activist). Do you have your pair? If not, check this styles out and click away (your credit card won’t thank you, but your closet will).

CROCHET SHORTS SELECTION

TOP: Miss Selfridge / Romwe / River Island

MIDDLE: Valentino / Haute Hippie / Opening Ceremony

BOTTOM: River Island / River Island / River Island

BARELY DRESSED LOOK

I wanted to play with the monochromatic trend, not only because all cream is a favorite of mine for the beac, but also because I wanted to draw attention to Zara’s leopard sandals, this pair of babies are among the most coveted items right now. The big sunnies add a twist of glamour to the ensemble and the dark nail polish a bit of drama.

ACCESSORIES:

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA

Thoughts? Are you going to be rocking the all-cream, crochet with a pinch of leopard look anytime soon? If you do, be sure to post some pictures for me! Have a great day!

Sweet kisses…

Sweet’n’Raw’s Sweet Dreams: THE PANTS

Good Monday, my sweet readers! Summer is finally here and my body is starting to ache, longing for the beach. Fortunately for me, my beloved Mexico is just two weeks away and my Acapulco Bay feels closer than ever (goodbye Casper skin). We are halfway through with our Sweet Dreams series and today’s the trousers turn. Pajama-like pants are comfy, easy to wear and laid-back. When it comes to them, frumpy is pure myth. There are many, many ways to play with this garment, you can dress it up with a silky top (slightly tucked in) and a pair of heeled sandals. You can keep it cool with a simple tank and a those pretty, pretty embellished sandals you just bought from Zara. You can take them to work with a blazer or a printed button-down or even for a couple of drinks when in a beachy destination: add a sparkly top and a fancy clutch. Are you ready to try this out? Let’s start with a selection available online.

PAJAMA PANTS SELECTION

CREAMY: Mango / Malene Birger / Topshop / Topshop

GRAPHIC: DVF / Mango / J. Crew / Mango

FLORAL: Clements Ribeiro / Maliparmi / Dries Van Noten / Suno

PAJAMA PANTS LOOK

Two simple, neutral garments to give away a pajama vibe. I dressed them up with a detailed bag and lots of arm candy to make it more interesting. I chose the barely there sandals to draw all the attention to the arms and the top.

THE GARDEN GODDESS: THE SHORTS

It’s finally Friday and Milan seems to be happy about it too, the sun is out and the day is warm. Dear rain, I signed up for Spring, if I wanted to see you contsantly I would’ve moved to London. We are halfway through with our Garden Goddess series and today I have prepared a colorful and relaxed look using floral shorts. Shorts are the ultimate weapon a girl has inside her closet, you can use them for almost any occasion and you get to flash and tempt the lads with your killer, lower limbs (I really need to get my legs Spring ready. A little Snookification wouldn’t hurt on this raw pastry-colored pair of pins of mine). Without further ado, I’ve put together a selection of flowery shorts that you can find online.

SELECTION

TOP: Dolce & Gabbana / TOPSHOP / H&M

MIDDLE: Jack Wills / Jason Wu / Marni

BOTTOM: Attic and Barn / TOPSHOP / Delia’s

LOOK OF THE DAY

Using the pair of shorts almost every girl has in her closet, the Zara high waisted ones, I have put together a casual look. It’s marvelous how the pastel ombre sweater works with the floral print. You can definitely take this to Coachella this weekend, just switch the wedges for some flats and a mini crossbody to complete the ensemble.

ACCESSORIES

BEAUTY

  • Rose nail polish, Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet

For all the details on today’s outfit, go to FASHIOLISTA

It’s a wrap for today! For the next post I am going to be taking on floral pants, a favorite among the crowd this season. Feel free to leave me a piece or your mind, I love to see what you, my lovely readers, have to say about it all!

Sweet kisses…

Sweet’n’Raw’s Spring Shopping Guide: JUMPERS

Let’s get the weekend started with a new post, my sweet, sweet readers! Are you enjoying our first days of Spring? I certainly am! Doesn’t it feel amazing to go out without a heavy coat over our stylish ensembles? Like the season, our shopping guide is only getting started and after a dose of spring jeans, I have for you the low-down on jumpers. I’ve been a sucker for knitwear forever and this season, I am loving the trends for this particular garment (I already have half of this list). Sweet’n’Raw’s Spring jumper mayhem is about to start… Let the games begin!

This Spring you’ll keep hearing pastel, pastel and pastel everywhere. We can’t seem to get enough from this pretty trend and this season’s sweaters totally agree. Since we don’t actually need a knitted and powdery rainbow selection, just get one shade: MINT. From Zara and River Island to Miu Miu, you’ll have lots of shapes and fits to choose from.

  1. Jonathan Saunders
  2. TOPSHOP
  3. River Island
  4. Miu Miu

Shiny and glittery pieces seem to be haunting us since last season, and you know what? I love to be haunted by them. One of the most important pieces for this Spring has to be the sequin or metallic jumper. It’s a garment that can help you spice up your daily ensembles or tone down an evening one. One more thing, sequins will always draw more attention to your fabulous self. What’s not to love?

  1. H&M
  2. Juicy Couture
  3. Mango
  4. H&M

Knitwear and prints? Double YAY! Make a statement by buying a jumper with a single print but interesting print. Whether you go for a sequined one number, or a sweatshirt-like one, this is a must for spring. Pair them up with some digital or microprinted bottoms to have more fun.

  1. TOPSHOP
  2. Monsieur Karssen
  3. Wildfox
  4. Markus Lupfer

Hello romance! Get cute and pretty with a lace or pointelle jumper. Whether you go for a cropped version, an oversize one or a sheer number, this is a need not a want for Spring. My advice, the more detailed, the better!

  1. TOPSHOP
  2. Dorothy Perkins
  3. Ella Moss
  4. Mango

Tangerine is one of the strongest trends for Spring. Jeans, tops, clutches and even nail polishes are available in this lively hue, and so are jumpers. You can pair them with cream bottoms (I love this color combo), you can color-block, you can layer, you can have fun! Try it!

  1. ACNE
  2. Heartbreaker
  3. Paul & Joe
  4. Burberry Prorsum

This is an oldie that never gets old. If you don’t already have the navy, boat inspired, striped jumper, I invite you to get it right away! It’s not only a basic for Spring, but a basic for life! No closet can ever be full without one of this babies.

  1. Stylebop.com
  2. Ralph Lauren
  3. Mango
  4. TOPSHOP

Start making your list and looking for the perfect jumper. What’s you favorite sweater trend? What garment would you like to see next on our Shopping Guide series?

Party hard! Sweet kisses…

Flashy Fancy Pants: METALLIC

It’s Monday, dreadful Monday my sweet readers, and it’s freezing cold! Here for you, the fourth look on my Flashy Fancy Pants series. It’s all about the bling, it’s all about the glitz, it’s all about metallic trousers! It doesn’t get better than this, I’m a self-proclaimed shiny shit junkie. Metallic is not a synonym for clubwear as many people think, you can wear metallics even for breakfast if you wish if the styling is proper (never wear metallic head to toe, they might confuse you with the club’s shiny disco ball). So here’s an idea, since this week has just begun, why not start plannig a chic & chic outfit for this weekend’s fun night out!

AS SEEN IN: Moschino, ETRO, Marc Jacobs, Balmain

THE LOOK

Fancy dinner? Drinks with friends? This look is just the perfect thing for that! Playing down metallics with neutrals is definitely a big success. That is why with this outfit I went with soft colors for the garments and bold accessories. For the pants, I chose gold instead of silver because I wanted a warmer result. This amazing pair of trousers are from ZARA. For the top part, an oversized jumper in blush from ASOS for a casual/cool kind of vibe. I threw over a tailored, tux blazer (the tux trend is very IN right now) in cream from MANGO. For the shoes, I wanted some color impact and this bottle green platform pumps from Laurence Dacade were the answer to my prayers.

For the wild factor, this frame leopard clutch from French Connection can be found over at ASOS.com. Jewelry? Two gold bracelets, both from ASOS: one with spikes and the other with a heart charm. One ring: the classic ARTY from YSL.

For beauty, a simple updo will do and for your nails: Deborah Lippmann’s Dark Side of the Moon.

Want all the juiciy details on today’s look, click HERE and check them out!

You likey? Feel free to comment! I still have two more flashy pants posts in store for ya! Come back to check them out!

Sweet kisses…

A/W OBSESSIONS: Leather Essentials

Happy Halloween my sweet, sweet readers! I hope you had a blast this weekend with your fabulous costumes, here at Sweet’n’Raw we had also a great time preparing those holiday theme posts we published before. Now it’s time to get a bit more serious, Fall serious that is. Going around the city today, I noticed the beautiful trees in shades of orange and yellow and as leaves begin to fall and Autumn is calling our name, our wardrobes have to be not only ready but perfect for the current season. Yes, I am a self-proclaimed leather lover, I would wear leather pajamas and knickers but that would be rather prejudicial to my pores. I consider leather to be very resourceful, it also has the power of twisting and pumping up any outfit! There was a time when leather was for jackets and boots, nowadays we can even find it on bikins and in different shades (I’m a sucker for pastel leather garments). So for fall, you have to have at least one of the following inside your closets, trust me, you’ll thank me later.

Pencil, mid-length, skin-tight mini, pleated or a personal favorite, the A-line are some of the styles you’ll be able to find in your favorite shops this season. The color? With black you can never go wrong, Cognac is the color of the season and Navy blue just because it’s lovely! From left to right:

Shorts have become a must in every girl’s wardrobe, floral, lace, denim, you name it, they make them that way. Leather shorts are wearable in both seasons. You can pair them up with a breezy top and sandals for Summer or throw a heavy knit sweater with biker boots for Fall. A pair of highwaisted shorts in your closet? Always! From right:

Now this is one garment that wasn’t that popular in leather until this season and it’s a personal favorite. It all started with the leather bustier and it evolved so much that now you can find it in many styles:  the button-down, the one with panels (this season and the next is all about panels), cropped, sleeveless, long sleeved and more! From left to right:

Fancy pants? Sexy pants? Leather pants! Ask any guy out there what is the sexiest garment a woman can wear (lingerie does not count as streetwear, ok?), he is gonna answer leather pants for sure. Not only do they accentuate every bit of our gorgeous and womanly figures but they are show-stoppers and head-turners. From right to left:

The leather dress can be a big hit when the fit is perfect, the material is flattering and the shape does not make you look like you just cut some holes into a trash bag. It is not harsh, you can pull off a romantic look with a leather dress when you pair it up with the right accessories. From left to right:

A biker jacket is always one of the best investments a girl should make. It doesn’t matter if you pay a bit more, you are not getting just a jacket. You are getting a classic, you are getting the chic factor, you are getting the one item that you can wear over and over and  without wearing out the look. It’s so versatile, it has become a need. From right to left:

There you have it! All the leather you are gonna want and you are gonna need for this fall! Check back this week for the outfits I have put together with each and everyone of this garments!
Hoping you have a great week, 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…
