Yesterday marked one week since the launch of Salty & Chic. I can’t even begin to describe how grateful I am for all the support. Since about 20% of my visitors came from Spanish speaking countries, I am going to try writing my posts in both English and Spanish from now on.

So thank you once again! On this beautiful day, I wore this beige, lace set that I later wore to dinner. I love low hems; they are a classic, elegant look for fall. Although they may cover a lot, I like to expose some skin with a cropped top to look more youthful. I also recommend wearing nude/beige heals to elongate the legs.

Ayer cumplí una semana desde el lanzamiento de Salty & Chic. No puedo describir lo agradecida que estoy por todo el apoyo. Como el 20% de mis visitantes vinieron de países de lenguaje español, he decidido de ahora en adelante tratar de escribir mis artículos en inglés y español.

Muchas gracias de nuevo por el apoyo que me brindan! Hoy me puse un conjunto beige de encaje. Me fascinan las faldas estrechas por debajo de la rodilla combinadas con una blusa corta enseñado un poco de piel en la cintura para ser un poco mas juvenil. También recomiendó usar tacones color piel para alargar las piernas.

Thank you once again for the support. Today marks week one of many to come.

With love from Miami,

Con amor desde Miami,

I recently collaborated with local boutique owner and stylist Claudia Alvarez who I have known and loved for a while. Her boutique Trendilicious has such a wide variety of clothing, it’s almost impossible to leave the store empty handed. Whether you’re looking for a casual tee or a formal dress, she has it all.

Together Claudia and I (C Squared) put together several looks that you have seen in some of my previous posts such as: Culture & Co-Ordinates, Stripes & Stuff, and A Bright Fall. We incorporated both the season’s latest trends and my personal style.

This outfit, I feel, is a good representation of myself: flirty and classy, but stilly edgy. Keeping with the season’s trends, we paired a skater skirt with leather seems and a leather embroided top. Leather is a staple fall trend that goes with almost anything if not everything. The leather accents on both the skirt and the top add a toughness to the outfit; however, it still remains delicate. With outfits like this one, balance is key. I paired the look with pointed toe flats and a felt hat to add a classy Parisian look. If I wanted to lean more towards the edgy side, I could have worn some leather boots or booties.

Thick or skinny, vertical or horizontal, asymmetrical or symmetrical: stripes are definitely the “go-to” pattern of the season. I’ve become a huge fan of bold stripes because they are easy to wear and pair.

On this typical beautiful and sunny Miami day, I wore an symmetrical striped dress. This dress was initially made popular by Kylie Jenner as she drank Starbucks. Inspired by Kylie, I wore this dress with black stilettos and a black Chanel purse. I then added my personal touch of style with color. I paired the dress with a cobalt blue blazer and satchel.

Other ways I like to wear stripes are with denim and leather to add some edge and create that “grunge” look.

So who wore it better, me or the man in the mural?

I feel that one should always be comfortable when it comes to fashion. However, there are exceptions. Especially when you love stilettoes; tall stilettoes (like me). Every once in a while it’s good to experience and experiment something new. Take a step out of your comfort zone for a day and/or night and try something bold. Even if it is a little step; something as simple as your makeup. This trend can help you do just that.

Personally, I’ve always been a fan of dark lip colors. I think their sexy and fierce. This Fall, both on the runway and streets, woman everywhere are picking their jam and sporting berry colored lips.

Halloween is around the corner, but you probably don’t want to look like a Vampire. If you are lost on which berry to pick, your skin tone is the best way to determine which shade looks best on you.

If you have fair skin, I would go with a raspberry color: dark but sheer. Medium skin tones can pull of a richer berry color and dark skin tones should wear a deep blackberry color that will contrast against your skin.Berry Kissable

Here’s some of my advise for when applying dark, rich colored lipsticks.

1. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips. Use a toothbrush and scrub your lips to leave a smooth surface for application. After, apply clear lip balm to avoid chapped lips.

2.Prime the lips. Apply some foundation before applying any color . This will make your lips nude and show the lipstick or liner’s true color.

3. For a lip that will last you longer, line and fill the lips with lip liner before.

4. You want to avoid looking gothic. So apply a complimentary color blush to even out the tones.

5. Dark lips, light lids. If you’re going for a bold lip, make the eyes simple. Do a simple cat eye or light shadow. Less is more.

So step out of you comfort zone and try it out!
