I HEART NYFW

ILOVENY96

Oh it’s that time of the year again, my favorite time of the year: the Spring 2014 collections are about to be unveiled and I couldn’t be more excited. New York has always been first in line when it comes to Fashion Week, and what better way to start this Fashion month than with a bunch of stylish Big Apple bites! As I’ve said before, many times, each fashion capital has that little something special. What’s special about NY? It’s not only about the city itself and the magic it has, it’s about the opportunities. New York opens its doors to new and young talent each season, this rarely happens in Milan or Paris. NYFW is not only about the big shots or the A-listers, it’s also about new faces and new ideas.

For a week (Sept 4 – Sept 12), New York will be overwhelmed with fashion editors, journalists, public figures, bloggers, IT girls (as much as I hate the term, it does exist) and fashion savvy people. It’s not an excuse to attend hot parties and meet people and it’s definitely not an excuse for you to get photographed and famous (street style whores, a really sad but true story). It’s a celebration of Fashion and the result of months and months of work. So let’s treat it with the respect it deserves, shall we?

Here for you, the Official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week schedule:

SUMMER GETAWAYS 2012: The City Blonde (evening)

Greetings from the beautiful Acapulco Bay, the last of my Summer destinations. I am ready to soak up the sun and finally get rid of this white and pasty Winter skin (yes, I haven’t had the chance to do some proper sunbathing). Anyway, back to what concerns us today, the Summer Getaways post. This is the fourth one from the evening round, we only have one more to go and it will be officially over. This time I bring you the City Blonde. So if you are in NYC and you are ready to party, if the London club scene awaits, if it dinner and then drinks in Madrid, here’s what you could be rocking tonight…

  • Snakeskin has gone from trend to constant, we always get to see this beauty on the runway. With a pair of skin-tight, python print jeans, you’ll seriously get the attention you deserve.
  • To tone down the power of the jeans, how about a peplum (it doesn’t get girlier than a peplum)
  • Some people like to pair snake print wit bold colors, I like to do quite the opposite. Play with the same shades as the jeans. As you can see, the result is all-neutral.
  • Toe caps were big this season, keep on rocking them any chance you get
  • For your nails, if you are lucky enough to find the impossible to find GRIS DECO from YSL, it will be the perfect final touch for the look. If not, any pastel gray will do.

WHAT ANITA IS WEARING

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

Time flies by and Summer does too. In about one more post, I will start preparing our minds and closets for Fall.

Sweet’n’sunny kisses…

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….
