Floral Print

Pairing this romantic floral one-piece with a pointy toe pump is perfect for a brunch with the girls somewhere downtown. I found this piece at one of my favorite boutiques, Rack to Closet, which has been featured at the last Fashion Happy Hour event. The unique handmade jewels from Kompany Jewels complete the look. floral 3 floral 6floral 5Photographer: Joanna Ramirez  Outfit: Romper  (Rack to Closet )  Pointy Toe Heel  ( Steve Madden ) Jewelry (Kompany Jewels)

Beach Beauty Essentials

The best part of living in Miami is being able to escape to the beach on a day off. Here are some amazing products that will help give you that effortless beauty while enjoying some sun and sand! This collaborative collection with Beauty for Real and Aerie are summer must haves. My favorite product of the collection is the Sugar Rush Scrub. This left my skin smooth and silky and is slightly scented with sugar, guava and nectarine. The Glow Sticks made it easy for me to get a natural summer glow along with a Sun Kissed Lip Gloss and beach goddess hair by adding some Sea Surf Spray. You can find the whole collection here.

Holiday Gift Favorites Collaboration

Hello dolls and Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone has enjoyed their holidays.

If you pay attention you will realize every gift tells a story. In a way gifts that are given to you reveal how the gift giver feels about you. That is why I felt the need to share my favorite gifts. I truly felt that the gifts I received exceeded my expectations because they were so thoughtful and creative.  Since I was so happy with my gifts I was inspired to reach out to two of my favorite bloggers and find out about their Holiday gifts and why they loved them as well.

I hope you enjoy reading about my holiday favorite gifts along with two of my favorite bloggers.

Here are my top gifts:

The  straw boater hat with lace and the small structured bag are vintage collectable pieces from the 1940s were given to me by my boyfriend. The semi precious stone necklace is a handmade piece from my friend and local designer Doreentii Fersola. Those amazing Sam Eldemen Booties were given to me from my parents. My last favorite is a dress form given to me by my aunts.

Here are Anj from Styled With Poise Top Picks:

The Phillip Lim (Pashli mini) bag and Givenchy sunglasses are both from my husband. I needed this pop of color since I love wearing black outfits. The bag goes well with the sunglasses which, are the perfect fit for the shape of my face. My mother-in-law got me this Pandora bracelet. I personally love that the bracelet is personalized. She also got me a travel sized perfume. I always carry one in my purse and it really comes in handy. The scent is not over powering, which is one of the reason why I love it! Aesop Chamomile Mask is from my best friend. It has rescued my skin from those bad break out moments. Besides using it as a mask, I also use as a spot treatment.

Lastly heres Jannelys from The Fashion Buffets favorite:

headphones

For a while, I’ve been wanting a chic pair of headphones to workout. Luckily, my boyfriend got me this gold pair from Frends. It was instant love and he made a great decision by choosing gold since it matches with my logo and style. Not to mention gold is the color of my phone and desk accessories. These are my favorite headphones now because they’re super comfortable on the ears and the sound quality is amazing. The Taylor headphones never miss in my bag. The best feature is the glittering hardware on the headphones because it adds that girly look. These headphones are convenient to store, since you can fold them very easily and place them inside the pocket it comes with.

Evening Holiday Party Makeup

IMG_6746It’s time to get your holiday makeup fix! Leyanis of Viva con Miami-Fashion and I collaborated to share two holiday makeup looks created by makeup expert, Shelby of Fancy Girl Faces.

IMG_6753My look is perfect for an evening holiday party. Here’s how you can recreate this look:

Step 1. After you’re finished with your foundation and powder, apply a gold shimmer all over your eye lid and concentrate a dark brown shade in the crease blending outward.

Step 2. Use a brow brush and powder to define and shape your brows.

Step 3. Use a matte black liner to outline your eyes and a good mascara to get a full lash look.

Step 4. On your cheeks apply a pink blush for rosy cheeks.

Step 5. The last step is to apply a coral lipstick.. and you’re now ready to party!

Street Style Edition: Look 1

Today’s look is the first of the looks for a Street Style Edition Series. Have you ever wondered how trends come about? Virtually all trends start on the streets and then either trickle into mainstream such as runways and retail or just inspire a certain mood. Fashion forecasters also play a big role in trend identification and analysis.
catwalk detailsFor the first look of the Sparkover Street Style Series, inspiration was taken from the Downtown Brickell, Miami area. This look is a feminine and classic take on uptown chic. The pink polkadot blouse matched with the nude A-line pleated skirt are from Macys. Feminine accessories finished the look, the cateye sunglasses are from BCBGMAXAZRIA and the shoulder bag is from Nordstrom (Kendall and Kylie Madden Girl).
