Amazing Find in the Men’s Department

Hello everyone and welcome to 2018. I had no resolutions for this year at all. If things continued to be like last year I would be happy. As long as I am healthy I am content. But as soon as 2018 started many things happened already that forced me to created a resolution. 2018 will be a financial discipline year for me. I have to be more careful on how  I spend my money, savings and so forth.

Today I want to talk to you about my amazing find in the men’s department at H&M. I always had a curiosity to explore the men’s section in stores. At times they sell things that appear to be unisex, trending pieces that women can also wear, items that seem to be more durable and cheaper than women’ clothes.

With the oversize hype going on in the fashion industry more women are shopping in the men’s department to get the perfect oversized look since at times our “oversize” clothing is not big enough to perfectly fit the trend.

In terms of durability I feel that men’s wear don’t tear as quickly or shrink as fast as women’s wear. While shopping at H&M I came across a good sale of men’s button-up shirts. Since you cannot have too many button-up shirts I couldn’t leave this clothing item behind. The quality of this shirt is awesome I feel that it will last me a very long time. The dress shirts for women were $20 so finding this one for only $7 in the men’s department was a good deal.

Tips for women when shopping in the men’s department/stores:
1– Be open minded
Don’t think that just because is men’s wear it won’t look good on you
2– Try on the item
Since men’s sizes are usually bigger than women’s make sure you always try the item
3– Reflect your style in the garment…
If you don’t want to look boyish put a spin into the garment by adding some very feminine pieces to go with it. For example: pretty accessories like earrings or necklaces, heels and purses.

Thanks for reading.

Jet Set Black. 2017 Recap

 Fedora Hat – Winners
Viscose Shirt – H&M
Leather Trousers – H&M (similar)
Jacket – (unavailable VS Catalogue)
Pumps – Zara
Necklace – Ardene

The American dictionary has different meanings for the term Jet Set. When I refer to Jet Set Black I am talking about a full monochromatic black look. 2017 has been a year for monochromatic looks. It was my favorite trend this year and I believe we will continue to see this trend in 2018.
My jet set black look is how I like to dress for fashion events. I like to show that black doesn’t need to be boring. The hat on this look adds a little drama to the attire making it fun and more sophisticated.
2017 has been a great year for me as I mentioned in my previous post I was able make it to all the trips I had planned and I enjoyed them tremendously.
I want to thank all of my supporters for the inspiring messages that continue to keep me more motivated to continue to pursue my passion for fashion.
Stay tuned for my next post…





Cascais – Lisbon, Portugal

Within approximately 31km away from Lisbon you will find this old and new style homes municipal called Cascais. A very prestigious area full of beautiful historical sculptures, amazing restaurants, shops, the Cascais Shopping and of course the breath taking Cascais beach.
A lot of the rich and famous live in Cascais. Many influential people in  Portugal prefer this quiet area to live and relax, over downtown Lisbon.
Portugal’s constructions are a mix of modern and ancient infrastructures. The beautiful colors of Cascais are very captivating for locals and even more for tourists because at times gives you the sense of being in an older historic town with a modern twist.
Although my main reason to come to Portugal was for the gastronomy, I was too busy eating and forgot to document majority of the food. My next post I will talk about the amazing places I have eaten at and some more site seeing I did while I was there.

Blush pink was the highlight of the spring. Before the season ended even though I don’t wear a lot of pink I decided to get myself this pink dress. This dress can be worn to a wedding  since its wedding session, to a high end event, to dinner and so forth.

I believe that at times we all match our outfits down to a Tee! I have this GUESS purse for a while now with the purpose of finding an outfit that would go perfect with it… I felt like matching everything today. I have been in love with nude and brown tones for some reason. So instead of buying a new outfit I realized that I had outfits in my closet that I could use.
At times I will purchase an accessory and build my outfit around that. Most of the times I build my look around shoes and bags. I am always looking for ways to be creative with my outfits.
