Remix:: H&M Faux Leather Skirt

This seven year old faux leather skirt is one of my favorites. This definitely shows how important it is to take care of your clothes it is also one of those pieces that can be worn all throughout the year.

What's In My Bag

Just fab (brown bag) / Express (black bag) / Forever 21 (silver bag)
 No surprise to anyone here I love handbags! 
My favorite types are the tote, clutch and the pochette (totally a new word for me) and how did I learn that by reading the Rau La La Handbags 101. I feel naked if I don't carry a handbag. I really don't carry much, but the stuff I do carry I can't leave without. 

My cell phone I would be lost without it, my makeup bag would go crazy if I leave home, an umbrella because sometimes it just rains for no reason, my wallet with out a licence I can't go far and lastly ibuprofen just in case of a headache
In my makeup bag I carry products that can transform my day look easily into night.  A darker lip color, an eye shadow palette and mascara.   
this one is my favorite pauchette
and the clutch I have been reaching for as of lately

Hope you guys enjoy this post! and don't forget to checkout the Rau La La Handbags 101 I promise you won't be disappointed!


Baby It's Cold Outside

T.J. Maxx sweater / Target hat & bag / H&M scarf & top / Old Navy Rock-star jeans /  Forever 21 boots /  Milani lips in Downtown Mauve
The hats, scarfs and long sweaters are out to play!!
For the longest time I didn't fell comfortable wearing hats lately that has changed. Hats add so much to an outfit and they are so flattering if they fit right. I bought this one at Target last year and have worn it so many times even during Summer (here). It was very cold on Sunday, I was tempted to wear a Winter coat but I am not ready for heavy coats just yet, so I layered with a long sweater and scarf. Layering is another thing I am getting better at, sometimes when I try to layer instead of looking cute I look bulky and bulky is no good in my book haha but I think practice makes better and it is definitely working!

Hope your week is going amazing!

Pink Cocoon

NY & Company coat /  H&M jeans, turtleneck & rings / Nine West shoes / NYX lips in Shocking Pink 
I look so tired in these pictures and I swear I had 8 hours of sleep plus a good hour workout in the morning... Anyway, I am ready for the colder months sad I know :( I found this coat in August on the sales rack at NY & Company. I wanted to get it so bad when the Eva Mendez line first arrived to the stores, but to be honest with you 1- I didn't want to pay $159 and 2- I completely forgot about it.
I usually try to keep an eye of the things I want waiting until they go on sale but sometimes I am not lucky, either the items go on sale and I missed them or they have them but not my size. I am glad that didn't happen with the coat!!!
This outfit was inspired by a photo I saw on People Style Watch Magazine after seeing the picture I realized I had all the pieces in my closet. I am a big fan of pastel colors for Fall, specially pink (my favorite color lol) I added a pop of bright color with my pink/fuchsia lips and wore my glasses because I ran out of contacts haha

Hope you had an amazing weekend!!

Nuance by Salma Hayek

I ran out of my Tarte mascara and went to Ulta to purchase a new tube when I got there all desperate (don't judge I NEED mascara) they were out! I was very upset because it took me a long time to find a mascara that I love. After the girl tried to convinced me to buy something else, I gave up left and went to CVS. I never have luck with drugstore brands, a long time ago I used Revlon and figured I can buy that until my regular was back in stock. That's when I found Salma Hayek's makeup line and noticed the volumizing mascara was sold out so I decided to give the lengthening one a try and bought it.
As you can see on the picture below I have lashes they are just not visible if I don't coat them at least once with mascara. To my surprised this mascara ($10.99) separated them and they look so long with just one coat!!!
I wore it for more than 12 hours and there was no smudges or raccoon eyes at the end of the day haha.
I can't wait to try the nail polish.

These Boots Are Made For Walking

NY & Company sweater / H&M skirt / JustFab boots / F21 sunnies / Milani lips in Sangria

Boots a sweater and a skirt this combo has been my uniform this Fall. In the past I always missed the not so cold days were you can wear this without needing more layers this year even with the temperature going up to the 70's I manage to keep this on and not gravitate to my lovely Summer clothes. So, this boots, yes!! one of my favorite Justfab purchases the design in the back is what cought my eye and they are very comfortable, can't wait to wear them again it will be very soon!

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

lace Love

Francesca's Collections top / H&M skirt / Nine West shoes / Forever 21 earrings / Kardashian Kollection sunnies  Revlon lips in Wine Not
I found this beautiful top at Francesca's Collections hanging very lonely on the "onesies" rack. Every time I go in that store I go to that section right away.  When there is only one item left they mark those items extra 40% off the bad thing is your size might be there, but the good thing is that there is always a sale! I wore nude pumps (my favorite pair at the moment) and finished the look with only earrings and a dark lip. Wore this to dinner with the husband on Sunday.

Plaid and Zippers

Forever 21 shirt / Old Navy Rock Star jeans / Payless sandals / JustFab bag / H&M necklace / Kardashian Kollection sunnies / NYX lips in Snow White
 When I was in high school all I wore was something similar to this outfit. Change the heels to converse and add a back pack. Now as a grown up 30 something woman (no one needs to know) I opted for these cool booties I found at Payless. If you have not been to a Payless in a while I suggest you pass by they have improved a lot! I was very surprised when I found these pair, they are super comfortable and I love the chunky heel. These shoes definitely give this look the edgyness I was going for to an updated grungy 90's type of style.

Hope you had an amazing weekend!

Remix Times Four

T.J. Maxx top
Forever 21 pants
Express top
Forever 21 bomber jacket

Closing the week with a mega remix. Sharing some items I wore to the office as well as on the weekend.
 I have established the one item in, one item out closet rule and I am planning to do major cleaning this coming Monday.
I will probably be getting rid of items that I have not worn in a while and that don't have any sentimental value, also items that don't go with the rest of my clothes. Oh and another rule.. If I can't make at least four looks out of one item I am either not buying it or if it is already in my closet it will probably be either donated or sold.

How is Poshmark? thinking of creating a "shop my closet" on that site.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Denim on Denim With a Twist

Old Navy shirt / Gap vest / Forever 21 jeans / Exree booties / Coach glasses / T.J Maxx bracelets / Nordstrom BP earrings / Sephora lips in N21

When I was younger I used to hate wearing glasses, now going to the eye doctor is exciting for me the older I get the more I love picking new glasses (shopaholic problems) haha.
Before my appointment I had my mind set on the Cat Eye style, but once I tried them on it just didn't work, so I stepped out of the box and picked these blue and brown ones. They are blue! never in a million years I thought blue would be my first choice but hey, people change right?
Anyways, onto my outfit.. The puffer vest is back! I wore this vest so many times last year and I still can't get enough of it, so my apologies in advance because is in heavy rotation. 
This time paired with my polka dot jeans and chambray shirt it added a bit of a twist to a good old denim on denim look...
Hope you are having an awesome week :)
