I've been wearing this nail style for a few weeks now, and I'm totally in love with it! it gives a very elegant and simple, yet interesting enough look. I saw it on a friend a few years ago, but later I saw it on a few bloggers and knew I had to try it. It's very easy to do!
I tried it on long and short nails, and both look really good :)

Since I was a teenager I have always been careful with my money and how I spend it. My mother taught me to look for sales and how to pick affordable clothes that seem more expensive. So basically all my life I've learned that the "quality > quantity" rule isn't always right.
I guess it's a personal matter, some people prefer to have a small closet but full of designer or expensive items, but I really like to have variety in my wardrobe; you'll rarely see me with the same outfit twice because I always need to change something, even if it's something small like a necklace.
Why am I telling you this? because everything from this outfit is from Causewaymall except for the shorts, which I bought at Forever21 (best purchase ever!). I didn't spend more than a hundred dollars and yet I think this outfit is worth a lot more.

There's nothing better in an outfit than a pair of comfortable and unique shoes, and if they were inexpensive even better! I got this amazing black suede with gold details booties from Causewaymall. I'm totally in love with them, the heel is an average height and super comfortable because the front has platform. I also love the ageless feeling the boots have.
I'm just a little afraid of abusing and using them so much.

Basically my Christmas presents and some things I bought. You already saw me wearing the Romwe shorts and I'm waiting for lower temperatures so I can use this wonderful vintage faux fur coat.

Golden shorts from Romwe arrived to my house a few days ago. They looked more of a lamé finish than metallic when I ordered them, I have wanted a piece with some shimmer, metallic or glitter on it, but I didn't want it to be too scandalous. And when I received the shorts I was totally shocked by the color! Don't get me wrong, the shorts are fabulous but so much brighter than what I was expecting. Well, I had to make them work with something and I knew classy and simple pieces would be perfect to tone down the shorts.
My favorite thing about them are: the faux leather pockets! it's such a nice detail.

Winter has been very different from what it used to be. I was stuck at jeans and sweaters the last year because I just didn't know what to wear! and actually, winter doesn't last a long time in my city so we don't usually invest in big coats or thick pants. This year I prefered to layer the same clothing I use all year and make them work for this cold weather. Now tights used under pants or skirts are my best friends ;)
And that's exactly this outfit. I've been waiting for this pants forever, I wanted them in a bright color because black is just too expected I guess? and teal it's been my favorite color this year, along with orange. This Romwe sweater is the perfect match for the pants because its neutral color but the gradient brings something interesting and unique.

I remember when I hardly worn heels. I felt insecure about my height (which is, for mexican standars, a high stature) so I was stuck at flats and kitten heels for a while. Later I learned that heels make your legs look longer and thinner; I also started to feel more confident about my height and be grateful that I can wear maxi skirts without looking short.
My current obssession are the Steve Madden Grettta platforms, I read many people in the fashion industry are wearing them and I don't doubt it, they're absolutely fantastic and versatile. I can't believe they never caught my attention! because now I can't find a pair in my size. I guess I'll hunting them on eBay and stores...

The sweet vampy look. I don't know about you guys, but I love big lips; I find them super sexy, ultra femme and hard to resist. My lips are just... normal, not too big yet not too thin, but I would love them to be thicker. Lately I've been experimenting with make-up to achieve a big lip with lipstick and without it, should I do a tutorial?
I love this set of photos, they came out so well! My favorite from 2011 definitely.
