MY IDEA OF SEXY

Coming from a traditional Mexican family, raised by women who never wore anything that looked like it belonged to a man, and going to schools where girls wore clothes tight enough to show off all their womanly curves, I was never exactly a fan of wearing loose clothing as a teen. I assumed that women were supposed to wear tight clothes to be attractive, but that changed as an adult. During my second year in fashion school, I learned to respect and love men's clothes on women. Don't get me wrong; I LOVE wearing girly attire, but I also love men inspired clothes like baggy trousers, boyfriend jeans/shorts, loose tees, oversized flannels, and sweaters.  It's true that loose clothes hide most of your curves like when I wear baggy jeans my butt disappears, but it's silly only to wear clothing that shows off your body shape. Being comfortable in your skin is amazing! So there's nothing wrong with wanting to show off your awesome legs or great butt but showing them doesn't make you more beautiful that not showing them. Of course, showing a little skin is appealing, but there is a sort of confidence that radiates on women who rock men's gear.  It's mysterious and super hot!  I guess my idea of sexy has changed through time.

All black

Hello everyone and Happy Fall!  First and foremost I want to apologize for the lack of blog post. I've been in the process of moving, and it has been a stressful past few months, to say the least. I haven't had to move in four years, so I forgot how grueling the process can be. It took me a while to find a new place, so I put most of my stuff in storage and because I don't have full access to my wardrobe I've been wearing mostly basics and a lot of blacks. Fortunately for me, I like black/casual clothes so this all kind of worked out. In this post, I'll be giving you basic tips on how to wear all black. I hope my tips are useful.  =)  Here's an "all black" outfit I wore a few weeks ago. I paired a denim skirt with a flowy blouse and my favorite mules. For me, you can't go wrong wearing all black because it's classic, elegant and looks great on everyone. However, if you want to be extra stylish, you can wear a colorful bag or bold accessories (big earrings, chunky necklace/bracelets) according to the occasion. There are no rules to style so always wear whatever makes your outfit feel complete and comfortable to you. My blouse had a low neckline, so I wore my favorite vintage scarf around my neck. I think the scarf gave it a more sophisticated look, and it also added a pop of color to my outfit. What do you think?

casually cool

Have you ever been tempted to buy a leather pencil skirt but weren't sure if you could pull it off? I think most girls can agree that leather skirts always look good on a hanger but are not so easy to style without looking a little like Kelly Bundy. I personally think a basic tee and sneakers are great pieces to style any skirt without looking over the top. Here's how I styled my favorite leather skirt and still looked casual and cool.
