fashion blogger for fall trends

Chloe + Isabel

In addition to writing about fashion, another of my great passions is reading and writing about entrepreneurship. Fortunately this blog has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of talented people. One of them is Anna.

A couple of months ago, I had the chance to meet (through Internet) this amazing entrepreneur, stylish woman, and mom (how can she do it all!!), Anna Lisa Ciaccio. She introduced me to the lifestyle jewelry brand Chloe + Isabel.

Inspired by a concept they call “The Friendship Philosophy”, Chloe + Isabel are the names that represent two personalities:

Chloe, the fearless fashionista, always in search of the season’s hottest trends. And Isabel, the one that appreciates, above all, timeless, beautifully-crafted pieces. 

Each piece is hand-designed in their NYC studio and for those with sensitive skin, all of their jewelry is hypoallergenic, nickel-free and lead safe. And believe it or not their prices start at $24 USD (check it out here).

For me Chloe + Isabel was the perfect description of what I look for in jewelry: unique, timeless and affordable.

After long emails with Anna and lots of fun choosing my favorite pieces (I made a list of like, 20 items… it was so hard to decide which one to wear for my post because I wanted them all)  today I share with you what I chose: the Scarab Statement necklace and bracelet.

The best of Fashion Week (NYC) – Part I

Hello readers,

Here I am again, sitting in my spot – this comfortable couch with a sight to the beautiful mountains – enjoying a cup of hot coffee. It’s been a while since I wrote on my blog (I really missed this) but after the past hectic couple of weeks I’m so happy to be back. Specially for Fashion Week.

As Carrie Bradshaw said,

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future… this is known as Fashion Week.”

Although I’m not from NYC  for me this means long nights on Style.com looking to beautiful and promising collections. This week I’ll share with you some of my favorite looks and designers as well as my predictions for this year’s fall/winter fashion. Enjoy!

Any trend you think I’ve missed? Comment about it below.

Fashion Week fall 2014 New York

Hola,

Aquí estoy otra vez, sentada en mi “spot” – un sillón super cómodo con una vista a las hermosas montañas – disfrutando de una taza de café caliente. Desde hace tiempo que no escribo en mi blog (en verdad lo extraño) pero después de un par de semanas agitadas estoy demasiado feliz de estar de regreso. Especialmente para la Semana de la Moda.

Como Carrie Bradshaw dijo, “Cada año las mujeres de Nueva York dejan atrás el pasado y van en busca del futuro… esto es conocido como la Semana de la Moda.” Y no sólo las mujeres de NYC hacen esto. Para mi, esto quiere decir largas noches en Style.com viendo un sin fin de colecciones las cuales prometen ser “lo que viene” para la siguiente temporada. Esta semana estaré compartiendo contigo algunos de mis looks y diseñadores favoritos, así como mis predicciones en moda para la temporada otoño/invierno. ¡Qué lo disfrutes!

To the things that are yet to come…

2013 has come to an end and I couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing year. Although you were able to see and read (here in the blog) about several spring and fall trends for 2013, there were just few of them that really made a statement. 2013 was the year for crop tops, grunge and prints. From the checkerboard’s spring trend (like Louis Vuitton’s popular checkerboard dresses) to the eye’s  fall trend (like Kenzo’s ocular print) I could say  that prints and symbols were kind of  huge during 2013.

But what to expect for 2014? I could say that we’ll be seeing much of last year’s trends… crop tops, sport luxe, over-sized cuts, prints, leather, fur and we can’t forget pantone’s color of the year… Radiant Orchid.

What do you think will be this year’s top trend? My guesses are that the sports luxe (over-sized and boxed cuts) as well as the crop tops will make every fashionista want to workout and be in shape to be able to wear 2014’s hottest trends.

xx,
