cheers to the weekend!

school is back in full force, and oh buddy, it is relentless.

To wind down and get my mind to stop thinking about theories and numbers, I plan to spend my weekend thrifting for an awesome army jacket.  These beauties are starting to pop up all over the place, and it wouldn’t surprise me if I came across these during NYFW.  Though places like asostopshop and zara are offering us the chic jackets, I’m pretty sure we can find other cheaper alternatives in a heap of used clothing somewhere in Goodwill!

If Goodwill isn’t catering to your thrifting needs, try my Plan B- look through Ebay and find a camo shirt in either boys big sizes or mens small for that oversized feel.

happy hunting!

wishlist wed- update my closet

wishlist wed- update my closet

There has been a drought in my closet! haven’t been shopping in what feels like forever so todays wishlist wednesday is what my closet needs- go to outfits for any occasion!

Crochet dresses are a must for the summer (have my eye on this LC for kohl’s one!) but i added some funkiness with the boat shoe trend.

Every girl needs a modern dress reserved for sassy events and the Alexander Wang dress is calling me.  Paired with those super cute and super cheap Zara sandals and neon accents, this outfit just screams my name right?

The $50 BB Dakota dress is perfect for summer dates (with friends or your significant other!).  I chose the nude heels to elongate the leg and stand out accessories to keep the look interesting.

what do you need in your closet right now?  xo, Marcela

girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.

Four Ways on a Friday

Four Ways on a Friday
    Yay for friday!  Check out those beauties huh?  Shoemint, shoes designed by the impeccable Rachel Bilson, have these new flats for February called Hattie and I MUST HAVE THEM.  The color blockage, thin ankle strap and bold hues makes it super covetable.  But at $79.95, they are prettttty steep…Time will tell!
