Oh man, I still haven't gotten through half of my NYFW outfits yet. This past week was a crazy one, so I'm still catching up. I had my hopes up and thought things would slow down right after fashion week was over, but nope. It was trade shows (my sister have a new design collab we are working on!), photo shoots, video shoots, editing, work dinners, WERK, TWERK. Just so much. But I love what I do, so I shouldn't complain. It's just that sometimes my body tells my mind different things and things just start to go haywire. I mean, I was sick for over 10 days. But hey, feeling better and leaving for Paris tonight and damn am I so excited!! My sister and I are going for Zadig & Voltaire's presentation during Paris Fashion Week, and we are going to throw in a bunch of sightseeing and meeting up with wonderful people in the city. Maybe make out with a French boy or two? Who knows really! lol. I've only been to Paris once, and it was only for two days, so I feel like I didn't really get to see the city. This will be a trip not much longer, but I think we're really going to make the most of it this time around. Follow the #SuarezSistersParis adventure via Instagram, of course :)

Back to Basic

For a girl who loves flowers in her hair and overly embellished maxi dresses, it's funny to catch me in just a basic tee and some blue jeans. But you know, it feels good to wear these things every now and then. It's like when you go out drinking all weekend and decide to stay in and drink tea every night for a week afterwards. You know, a fashion detox sort of situation. Especially when the stripes are bold and the jeans fit like a charm. That's enough to keep me smiling, red lip or no lip at all. 

So here it is, top 10 basics every fashion girl needs (in my opinion):

1. Black and white striped tee (not too tight and not too loose)
2. High-waisted medium blue distressed skinny jeans
3. Black long length blazer
4. A brown stiff-brimmed hat
5. Simple gold cuff bracelets for stacking
6. Burgundy leather moto jacket
7. Printed silk neck scarf
8. High-waisted button front mini skirt
9. Distressed vintage rock tee
10. Metallic leather oxford shoe

Light vs. Dark

Played around with the shadows one day with my little sister Natalie and our friend Sabrina who made all the jewelry featured here in this little photo set. It's the best feeling in the world to be surrounded by people you are inspired by constantly, and whom let you know how much you yourself inspire them. There's something so dramatic about the idea of light vs. dark, as well as the union of the two. Light . . . airy, innocent, fresh. Dark . . . sexy, smoldering, intense. I think every person has full access to both sides within them, no matter how much they show themselves to be on the exterior. The final product just depends on how much of each is channeled. The best way to start is by letting down your inhibitions. I know that both light and dark live within me, and only those closest to me see all my sides, and understand where they come from. There's a huge side of me that is made up of things that are light. My friends and family and work keep me forever smiling. I find a reason to laugh over just about everything. I never take myself too seriously. Nothing really feels like the end of the world to me. I like to make sure that everyone is included, and that I get to hear all stories before putting down any sort of judgement. On top of that, I am very accepting of all kinds of people, even if they are completely opposite of me. I'm a Libra through and through, and it takes a lot to really kick me off balance. 

But I do topple over about some things. And when I do, I usually I topple over pretty hard. At least for a little while. Really it's not a negative thing. I'm just known to be a very passionate person. And it usually just means that when I put a lot of energy into something that strays from my normal routine, I expect a lot back. And if I find myself not feeling like I'm getting back what I put in, my darker, more emotionally contemplative side comes out. Sometimes I sound crazy. And I even start to act crazy. And you're done if I'm on my period. But I get over it fast, and I find ways to grow and move on, as opposed to staying put and pondering in misery. The best way for me to get over my darker days is with a whole lot of hope. And a whole lot of writing. And probably some water coloring. Oh, and a few glasses of wine. The turning of pages is the best remedy in some cases. And this way, my dark side turns into something more creative. So in the end, I usually do still end up winning. It's all about how you think about things. I could never have my light without my dark. And vice versa. We need the full spectrum to be a full person, so try not to try so hard being someone you are not. Just keep yourself in check.

As I Wait

Enjoying every moment that I can in my favorite little sunny nook at home. Waiting for spring to get here, but this is the closest thing to spring for right now. This fuzzy Topshop sweater keeps me cozy as I wait and try to get reacquainted with my dusty acoustic guitar that has been begging to be strummed since over two years ago. I think it might be time for me to get back into my more musically inclined sense of self.
