Today I'm sharing more photos from last month's trip to Dominican Republic. As I mentioned in a previous article, one of my family's favorite places to visit in the Dominican Republic is the Colonial Zone. The girls love to run, play and ask plenty of questions. It's always a good thing when you can have fun, explore new places and make it all educational. 

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.
Hoy estoy compartiendo más fotos de mi últimos viaje a la República Dominicana. Como mencioné en un artículo anterior, uno de los lugares favoritos de mi familia para visitar en la República Dominicana es la Zona Colonial. Las chicas les encanta correr, jugar y hacer muchas preguntas. Siempre es una buena cosa cuando usted puede divertirse, explorar nuevos lugares y hacer que todo sea educativo. 

Espero que todos ustedes tengan un hermoso fin de semana.

Hello, Wonder Bra

Alright ladies, today I'm getting a little technical and personal. I'm talking bras.

I know {I hope}I'm not the only who has a problem finding a good bra. Because when it comes to undies, I AM PICKY. Therefore, I thought writing about this issue would help other women with the same problem. So.. I've found the one bra everyone needs (if you have boobs)! It's the Extreme Options 62+ ways to WOW! by Lily Of France, a brand I had never heard before (in a very low voice) but am ecstatic about discovering them. The bra is able to change 62 ways, {WHAAAT}. I know, it's pretty unbelievable. I got them in the color nude because I am able to wear it with anything. Other than being extremely versatile I love the push that it gives to your boobs. & we all love a good push right?
The bra is 77% nylon and 23% spandex. It comes in two different colors; black and nude.

Dressing For The Beach


I'm excited to share with you a new collaboration that is currently taking place with a brand I love very much Lexington Company and Hilaria Baldwin. You guys might remember the first time I introduced you to Lexington Company back in April when I wore the zig zag bikini top {here}. 

Now they have launched a new Hamptonite collection in collaboration with Hilaria Baldwin and opened a brand new concept store located on 46 Main Street in Southampton. This collection is full of Summer essentials and very versatile pieces. The collection will be in all 55 stores globally and online on June 1st. This also marks the Lexington Company's first design collaboration in the United States.

You can also enter for a chance to win a limited edition beach bag and a beach towel set from the Hamptonite Collection HERE.

It's Thursday, yup yup!

I'm currently typing while doing my laundry. Siting on a washing machine and drinking a Bruce Cost Ginger Ale reminiscing about last nights dinner at Taverna Kyclades. Mmm that was a D-licious meal! Alright, enough rambling and lets get to todays outfit details.
Estoy actualmente escribiendo mientras lavo mi ropa. Sentada en una lavadora y bebiendo ginger ale de Bruce Costo recordando la cena de noche en la taberna Kyclades. Mmm que rica estaba! Muy bien, estoy hablando suficiente, ya les doy los detalles de este look.

Risky Business


Wearing florals to work is always a risky business. Although there are a few ways to rock this trend without being too dramatic. Nude pumps and a dark blazer will always help cool down any floral colorful look. Add a hobo bag like this one to give the look a casual and relax feel. 
El uso de flores al trabajo es siempre un asunto arriesgoso. Aunque hay varias formas de usar esta tendencia sin ser demasiado dramático. zapatos color desnudo y una chaqueta oscura siempre ayudar a enfriar cualquier look floral. Añadir una bolsa grande como ésta para dar la apariencia de un look que dice "No estoy tratando demasiado'.

I must admit that I've been missing the hot sun, cool breeze and warm sand of the Caribbean. Thank goodness for these HUE leggings that can temporarily ease the pain of being in this crazy NYC weather. Over the weekend it was hot and stifling for a few hours to later get very chilly, although it's nothing a blazer cant fix.
He de reconocer que he estado extrañando el calor del sol, la brisa fresca y arena del Caribe. Gracias a Dios por estos leggings de HUE que pueden aliviar temporalmente el dolor de estar en este clima loco de Nueva York. El fin de semana estaba caliente durante el dia y despues frio en la noche. Aunque no es nada que una chaqueta no pueda soluciónar.

Help Raise Money for Cancer Research

I wanted to share this special invitation that is happening TODAY! It's a Mothers Daughter tea, book reading and vintage Chanel and Hermes trunk show that Kirna Zabete and The Vintage Contessa are holding to raise money for pediatric cancer research.

The event will be happening on May 17th from 11am to 2pm at the Kirna Zabete store in Soho, and a portion of proceeds from sales on the day will go to The Scarlett Fund at Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Centre. The day marks the New York launch of the new children's book The Vintage Contessa & Princessa, which has been written to raise money for pediatric cancer research around the country. Below I've included a few images from the items that will be sold this date. Get excited ladies.

It's Wicked


There's no better feeling than feeling comfort out-of-your comfort zone. I know that makes no sense at all, therefore, I will explain. As I mentioned on my previous post, I've been stepping out of what I normally do and trying new things. After doing this I've discovered a completely new side of me that [to be quite honest] I love. & from all the comments on my social media accounts, you do too. This look was definitely inspired by Beyonce's Met Gala look, Maleficent which I'm D-Yinggg to go see (May 30th) and the inner rebel that we all have within.
Este aspecto fue definitivamente inspirado por el look de Beyonce en el evento de Met Gala, la pelicula Maleficent que sale en cine el 30 de mayo y la nena rebelde que todos tenemos adentro.

Seeing Florals


Of course florals are Spring's #1 trend for obvious reasons. There's something about wearing this print that make you feel part of nature. Today I styled something I never thought i'd do, a matchy-matchy head-to-toe floral look. I wasn't going to style these two Zamrie pieces together at first. Originally I was going to wear a white blouse and white blazer. However, I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone and needless to say, I am now obsessed with this combination. Never say never, right?

The trick behind wearing head-to-toe florals is to keep the accessories all gold, or, all silver and as minimal as possible. Try not to add any other colors unless it blends with the florals like I did here. I added a pop of orange with this clutch by Hunting Season only because the outfit has bits of orange throughout. Just keep the colors flowing. You know everything looks better with shades on, therefore I added these from PYTCollection.

Por supuesto florales es la tendencia de la primavera #1, por razones obvias. Hay algo acerca de usar esta impresión que te hacen sentir parte de la naturaleza. Hoy me puse algo que nunca pensé que me pondria, una mirada floral de pies a cabeza. Al principio no me iba a poner estas dos piezas de Zamrie juntos. Mi primer pensamiento fue que me iba a poner una blusa y una chaqueta blanca. Sin embargo, quería probar algo fuera de mi zona de comodidad y no hace falta decir, ahora estoy obsesionada con esta combinación. Nunca digas nunca, ¿no?

El truco detrás de usar flores de la cabeza a los pies es mantener los accesorios lo mas mínimo posible. Trate de no añadir ningún otro color, a menos que se mezcla con las flores como lo hice aquí. Añadí un toque de naranja con este embrague de Hunting Season sólo porque el taje tiene trozos de naranja por todas partes. Lo ven?

Dinner At A Stranger's Home


I absolutely love unique experiences and more so, I love sharing them with you. Today I'm sharing my experience with EatWith, and online website where you book a reservation and eat in a stranger's home. Yes, you read it correctly. This is the way it works; you go on and search for your location or click on 'Find A Meal'. Then you browse experiences, or, the type of food you'd like to eat and pick one. Then you book a date or you can also request a date. You pay through the site and will momentarily receive a confirmation from the host providing the location, etc.

At first I was a little skeptical about the idea of going to a strangers house and dinning with people I didn't know. Then I read all about EatWith's policy. They verify individuals before allowing them to become a host. Of course this made me feel a lot better and I decided to give it a try. I chose to eat with professional chef Anabella because she was offering Venezuelan food and I had never tried it. I also knew I would enjoy conversing with her in spanglish through the night. Anna made a 3 course Venezuelan dinner including dessert (see details here).

Smiles & Zig Zags


Today Zareena is wearing a beautiful zig zag maxi dress by CoolKidsBklyn. This dress can be dressed up or down. We were headed to the doctors office and was going for a more casual look. If we were attending to a Summer event or a birthday party, I would have added a white denim jacket like this one here,  a funkier headband like this one here and while shoes/sandals like these. The dress it-self is beautiful, very comfortable and has a lot going on with the print. Therefore, everything else must be minimal.
Hoy Zareena lleva un hermoso vestido zig zag de CoolKidsBklyn. Este dia nos dirigimos a la oficina de su médico y queria vestirla casual. Si íbamos a un evento especial o una fiesta de cumpleaños yo habría añadido una chaqueta de mezclilla blanco, como este de aquí, una diadema más divertida como éste aquí y unas sandalias como estas. El vestido es hermosisimo y muy cómodo así que todo lo demás debe ser mínimo .

Life's a beach


There's something about walking on the beach barefoot on a sunny day that reminds me of my childhood. Not that I visited the beach often as a child. Although the hand full of times I did, stuck to my memory like 'butter on a roll'. The salty smell. The foamy water running through your feet. The fresh breeze blowing your hair to the point of tangling madness. The liberty of seclusion. The ghost crabs running around like World War II was approaching. All the elements of paradise combined into one place that it's no-doubt- about it, priceless.
Hay algo acerca de caminar en la playa descalzo en un día soleado que me recuerda a mi infancia. No es que yo visité la playa a menudo como una niña, pero el puñado de veces que lo hice, se pego a mi memoria como 'mantequilla en pan'. El olor a sal. El agua espumosa que corre a través de sus pies. La brisa fresca que sopla su pelo hasta el punto de enredamiento. La libertad de la reclusión. Los cangrejos fantasmas corriendo como que la Segunda Guerra Mundial se acerca. Todos los elementos del paraíso combinados en un lugar que no tiene precio.

Into The light


These past two weeks of my life have gone from 0 to 60. I feel so blessed for everything that is currently happening in my personal life and on NYTM. I wanted to take the time to share a few quotes that I live by day-to-day because many of you have been emailing me about life issues and I want to help. There are so many things I am more appreciative for now, include certain individuals that I never notice before. "I was blind until I opened my eyes". Take a look around you, see who is always there for you and who is willing to help. Hold on to those genuine souls who will lift you higher. Your life blooms depending on those around you. My recent family vacation validated this for me. Being a strong individual in this cruel world definitely pays off. Learn to let go of those who are deteriorating your life and you'll see a significant amount of progress. & remember, no matter what you're going through, life goes on.

"Life is not about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself"
