Hello Fashionistas!
Have you seen this trend? It seems that the 90s have returned in terms of the day-to-day fashion. Perhaps the 90s never left. The fashion world calls the denim jacket a trend but for me it has always been a staple.
What we are seeing more now is that the denim jacket has more personality and attitude. A lot of denim jackets have the destroyed denim style, oversized style, embellishments with pearls and patches, and my favorite; the embroidery trend. I like this idea because you can make your jacket a lot more personal. Next time I wear this jacket it will probably be “destroyed trend” or with more embellishments.
For me, Guess store can do no wrong when it comes to denim. I feel that this jacket will last me a long time. After purchasing it I took it to the Levi’s Tailor Shop to get my embroidery on the back. Personalizing an item can be addicting because I always want to add more to it. In this case I want to add more words on my jacket.
I hope you guys like this look and can be inspired to recreate this look in you own style.

Did you know that Dumbo stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass? This was something I learnt during my City Sight Seeing New York Tour.

Hello readers!
I know it has been a while but I am back! Another short trip. It seems that lately my trips have become small getaways. But I enjoy quick vacations too. The only problem is the “I don’t want to leave” feeling that I get when I have a great time on vacation.
Well I have been to New York City before but every time I come to the Big Apple I always have new experiences in terms of the places I visit and the restaurants I go to. There is a lot to do in New York City and that’s  why I love this city.
Today my pictures were taken at the famous restaurant Gallow Green. This rooftop bar at the top of the McKittrick Hotel offers a breath taking scenario with its earthy atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, delicious food and live music. For just $30 you can enjoy all you can eat brunch on the weekends and live music. I would recommend making a reservation. I went in the fall and the restaurant was very busy I can only imagine how busy this place might be summer time.

Outfit:
Ladies, here is a tip for those cool days: Wear a fitted dress under a dress when its cold.
I like to look good but being warm is my priority. Today was a mild fall day but since I am wearing a denim dress I decided to wear the black fitted dress underneath for comfort and warmth. Keep in mind the material and style of the dress you choose to wear since a lot of dresses can’t be worn with a dress underneath.
Another tip: Don’t be afraid of alterations.
If you really like something, and believe that you will wear often but perhaps it needs to be altered do so if you think will be worth it. I had to take in two sizes down in the waist of my dungaree dress but I was very with the result. A lot of times I end up altering my clothes which can be expensive sometimes. But I alter pieces that I really like and can’t find it in my size.
