1yr. Anniversary

Happy Anniversary!

Hello Friends! Last Friday I celebrated my 1 year anniversary. 1 year of creating content for my blog, YouTube channel and social media platforms.

I did not expect nothing of it. I was in a season of disappointment, lacking motivation but inside I knew I had it in me to start something. I did a lot or research, prayed a lot, reached out to my friend Laila for guidance and a lot of doubts.

1 year of walking into the unknown.

1 year of doubts & fears.

1 year of a lot of late nights.

1 year of many sacrifices.

1 year of planning content.

1 year of exposing my craft to the world.

1 year of new opportunities.

1 year of new friendships.

1 year of learning about myself.

1 year of getting rid of insecurities.

1 year of creating my own happiness.

1 year where I took the best leap of faith.

I am so happy I took the risk and jumped on this wagon. It has been a wild ride but a fun one where the impossible has been possible.

THANK YOU ALL for your support & love throughout this year. I can’t believe how fast it went, but glad I invested and worked hard to see my creative platforms grow and see how it has impacted you guys.

I hope you  are motivated & inspired to take a leap of faith, a risk or go after that dream that has been in your heart. It is worth it just know it takes a lot of work and a lot of patience.

Style Collective Party

Hello Friends!

Community is very important. We all want to belong and be part of something. We live in a very high tech world and at the reach of our hands we get information of what’s going on and what are people up to nowadays. We forget to call or have face to face conversations with people, and let’s keep it real sometimes we feel alone.

Whatever dream or passion you are chasing, you need a community. It gets lonely working and going after things you are passionate about. It has happened to me a lot and specially when I started this journey. I remember when I started it was challenging for me to explain to people what my new venture was. Some go it and some didn’t seem to care.

I am so thankful that this new year I have been able to attend more blogging & content creator events where I have met goal driven, passionate and like minded individuals who are on their constant hustle.

About two weekends ago I had the pleasure to attend the Style Collective https://stylecollective.us/  Pool party that was hosted by my awesome friend Nikki the fashionable accountant.

I have heard great things about Style Collective. I did my research and decided to attend this party and hear more about it. My close blogging besties have spoken so highly of this community and how much it has helped them that it sparked something within me.  Most of the details were taken care of by Nikki. She did a great job, other members brought some food and there were a couple of brands. Nikki also had a snapchat filter made for the party!

Local vendors like Lola Trixx which has great hand made customized jewelry pieces were there providing their services to fix pieces that needed some help.

I got to speak to the founder of Batey Girls. An organization that focuses on helping women, and young girls who have been victimized by domestic violence and sex trafficking in the Dominican Republic. These women and girls have a heart for creativity and they design each jewelry piece with a story behind. I was amazed hearing how the organization started and looking at each piece made me grateful for my life and what I have. The pieces are so beautiful and they have such a meaning. If you can please visit their page.

Other brands were present giving some out some goodies and providing their products.

These beauties & I got to win some cute bags from JUSTFAB ‘s giveaway hosted by the lovely Laila which you  already know it was the one who encouraged me into blogging.

        I am a JUSTFAB member and if you would like to sign up using this link www.justfab.com/invite/120782948 do it! you can sign up and get some great discounts.

  It was so hot on this day, but it was such a fun party. This summer has been very busy for me but I really wanna make the time and do fun things. It felt good to be reunited with my blogging babes and meetings new ones. So whichever dream you are trying to achieve and if you feel lonely, let me tell you that you are not. There is a community, there is help, there is people you can count on. Go out there and find it.

Like the famous high school musical song: “We are all in this together”!

DIY Tassel Earrings!

Hello Friends!

  So lately I have been obsessing over the whole tassel trend. I love how many brands are creating different looks and accessories with it. It has been a strong trend for a couple of months.

                         

 I decided to look online for some earrings. Let me tell you that I found some pretty expensive ones. To keep it completely honest with you guys, I have been trying to be smart about my finances and paying $36.00 for a pair of earrings did not seemed like a smart move. So I decided to get creative and DIY my own tassel earrings. I had help from my dear friend Yoda. We were able to hang out and make this cute earrings. I created this small tutorial and I hope you guys enjoy it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I took a trip to my favorite store JO-ANN  . This store is always organize and people are very helpful. They also have an app where you can download with all the information and COUPONS!! so here we go….

What you will need:

 DMC Satin Embroidery Floss,

Blue Moon Ear Wire

Blue Moon Findings Bead cap

Glue gun

Glue sticks

Scissors

    **All the items I purchased were under $10.00 and I used a coupon so it really helped** Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored.

  1. Wrap tassel floss around your hand and cut it in half. You can decide which ever length you would like.
  2. Fold one of the pieces in half by creating a little top bun, and use a piece of the tassel floss or thread like I did and wrap it around making sure all the tassels are kept together.
  3. Once you have created the top bun, insert the hook inside the bead cap.
  4.  Then grab the glue gun, place some glue inside the bead cap and attach it to the top bun of the tassel. Hold it for 6 sec. so that the glue will hold quicker.
  5. and…BAM!! you have created some cool tassel earrings.!! GOOD JOB <3

Here is the Final Product! You can create as many as you can and make them longer or shorter. Here is a pic of my friend Yoda wearing the earrings she made, and her cute son trying to pull them haha!

and of course I had to take a quick picture and show you mines!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Remember you can create anything, use what you have and have fun while doing it.  I had a great time creating this earrings with my friend and shooting this DIY. Stay tune for more. Have a great week friends.

Hey Friends!!

So excited to share with you guys my latest adventure. I have mentioned before this season has been rough for me, and it’s good to get away. It’s very refreshing to be in another place surrounded by different things.

Over the weekend I was able to finally visit The Miami Design District in Miami, FL. I was in Miami for an event which I will share in part II of this series.

Miami has been known for great beaches, nightlife, food and other great places. But it has gotten more popular due to to this new edition. It’s located in South of Lemon, (little Haiti) which were a bunch of old houses that now have been now converted into very luxurious retail stores, art galleries, restaurants and cafes.

Whenever you can,  take a trip to the beautiful Miami and check it out! here are some photos of the stores, details and art I found.

Sunglasses Trend

Hey Friends!

Happy Tuesday! another week to be productive, get things done and live your life. Also have you guys seen all the awesome sunglasses that are  trending?

OMG! so many retro, round, big styles that celebrities, influencers and other peeps  are wearing now a days. I feel like every time I’m on Instagram or Pinterest I run into a post of someone wearing some great shades.

1

My metallic pair of fave sunnies ran out of time, R.IP! So I started doing my research for some new ones and on Pinterest I  found an awesome and affordable company of sunnies called ZeroUV .

IMG_0120

I found some great sunglasses! Great for both men and women. I liked the presentation of their website and all their social media channels. When I subscribed to their mailing list they sent me a coupon to use for my first purchase.

Keeping it real I was a bit afraid of purchasing my sunnies online. I usually get them from local boutiques or random shopping adventures but after seeing all their great reviews, I took the leap and BAM!! done deal.

IMG_0125

IMG_0122

I found this retro hippie oversized round ones. They are so cool, and I really wanted a piece that made a statement. I have worn them a couple of times and have gotten great responses.

ZeroUV is very legit, by the way this post is not sponsored by them. I’m just sharing my experience with them and recent sunglasses trends. They are very professional, the package arrived on time and secured. The glasses arrived in a small box, wrapped very carefully in a plastic bag and it came with the microfiber bag to keep them safe and clean.

Here are some of my looks with my new retro sunnies!

The cool thing is that I can wear them with anything <3

Simply Casual

Hey Friends!

The weekend is almost here guys, so let’s keep pushing and finish the week strong. Today I wanted to share with you guys one of my cozy simply outfits.

Kathy Blog 5

As much as I love to dress up sometimes, and change my style a little bit here and there. There are days that I just want to be casual. I love a cute t-shirt, some stretch denim and of course my favorite sneakers.

Kathy Blog 4

About two weeks ago I found this cute graphic tee at Francesca’s Boutique. I usually don’t wear t-shirts with statements on it, but I kinda liked what it said. It’s very comfortable, flowy and not heavy at all. I believe the fabric is a mixture of polyester and rayon.

IMG_7818

I like to wear a lot of denim, usually dark denim but I found this washed out stretchy  jeans at Styles for less. Since I am not very tall I have to fold the bottom of  my jeans so I can have a proportioned outfit. My cute bag is actually a phone that it works haha and it’s from Betsey Johnson.

Tip: No matter what, always add a statement accessory to your outfit.

IMG_7827

Mint in Spring!

Pastels are huge during this season, but what’s trending right now is MINT. I love anything mint and when I saw this low top Adidas Gazelles, “I died” like my fashion icon Rachel Zoe would say.

I have been a lover of Adidas since I was 12. I worked as a sales associate years ago and learned so much about the brand. There are so many great sneaker brands out there, but Adidas always has a special place in my heart. Their quality is great and designs are very unique in comparison to others in my opinion.

Gazelles started as a sport shoe. It was a performance shoe for a while , but later on it translated more into the fashion industry  by people wearing them more in their daily outfits. I found this great article in regards to the history of this shoe if you want to read more about it. http://www.complex.com/sneakers/2016/07/adidas-gazelle-history

A little throwback to the 90’s this gazelles are pigskin leather, it has the triple stripes detail on the sides. Trefoil logo on the tongue of the shoe and heel tab. Very comfy, and wearable with a variety of pieces.

Thank you guys for taking the time and reading this post. Hope you guys have a great weekend.

Italy is known for their beautiful scenery, vineyards, food, art and culture but also for their taste in fashion. You know how in New York we have New York Fashion Week, in Italy there is also Milan Fashion week where  some of the class brands like Prada, Gucci, and Armani are of Origin. As a fashion influencer and future designer, I have to always be on top of my game. I have to keep up with the latest news in fashion, what’s going on, which new brands are coming out and so on. Sometimes we focus on just looking at Pinterest , Fashion websites or Instagram to know what’s going on in fashion and yeah it is helpful but we need to learn that there is more out there, and that’s why I wanted to create this post and teach you all about Pitti Uomo, so let’s do this!

pitti-immagine-uomo-giugno-2016-mamme-a-spillo

Pitti Uomo is one of the world’s most important platform’s for men’s clothing,

accessory collections, and for launching new projects for men’s fashion. A four-day event held in Florence, Italy and has been around since 1972.

All About Metallics!

Hello Friends!

I hope you guys are doing great, it’s been a crazy busy season full of parties, shopping, planning, getting ready for the new year etc. Holiday parties are here and the struggle is real to find something to wear.  I was recently invited to a holiday party at one of my jobs and I honestly did not know what to wear. I didn’t want to go with all black even though that’s what my heart was craving, and I wanted to stay within my budget which it’s very challenging when you go to any store specially during this season.

I have been seeing a lot of people wearing metallics, I remember buying my first slip on shoes of metallics during the summer but didn’t know it was going to be so big during this holiday season. It was huge on the F/W 16 runways of Michael Kors, Tibi and one of my favorites Saint Laurent. So I decided to do my research and created a mood board for an inspired metallic look for this holiday festivities. I wanted to find a statement piece and also pair it up with pieces that I had in my closet, that way it would balance out and I didn’t have to spend too much money.

On this board you can see a variety of different metallics like silver, gold, holographic, copper, cherry, and rose. They can be paired with neutrals and yeah they will get you noticed but there are ways to make it look effortless.image

I went to the mall and it was a disaster, it was so packed I got anxiety and honestly did not find anything that I liked. Going to a big store that has too much it overwhelms my eyes, so the next day after that adventure I decided to visit Francescas boutique. Everything was so organized, the sales associates and store managers were very friendly and helpful. After trying different dresses, I found this metallic dress. #WINNERimage

It was very comfortable, really good for my figure and not tight! I don’t like tight dresses and even though I like statement pieces I was a bit scared of how shiny it looked but hey I knew I had to take a risk. This dress was $48.00 which is not bad, it has adjustable straps and the lining inside was kind of silky and soft.

image

I didn’t want to just wear the dress by itself because it was going to be a cold night, and the party was not that fancy even though I was looking kind of fancy. So I wanted a piece that would make the dress tone down a bit and I remember that one of my really good friends last year gifted me this pleather Forever 21 jacket with some cool spikes details on the shoulder and I paired it together and it worked.

image

I know that maybe the spikes were a bit too much, but it was a small touch of punk, and it gave a special balance to my outfit. I knew I was taking a risk, but hey fashion is all about risks and sometimes things that you might never think that would go together, they might work if you try.image

It was a cold night and there was no way I was going wear open toe shoes, I love wearing boots and this is the season for it. Two years ago I found this suede ankle boots at Forever 21, they are very tall but have a good amount of support. I liked how it had that metallic gold touch in front of the heel and knew that they would work for my look.image

This is how my whole outfit looked for the holiday party that night!

Hair: Slick pulled back.

Make up: Bold purple lip, cat eye, and soft eyeshadow.

Accessories: Small silver necklace, clear square silver earrings and silver bangles.

image

I hope this post inspired you and gave you an idea on how to pair up metallics this holiday season. I know it can look a bit scary, and maybe you are saying “oh that’s not for me” but like Bieber said “Never Say Never”! Go out there and try something new , don’t forget to also go into your closet and use what you have that way you can look great, feel great and save some money. I had people asking me about this outfit and how much money I spent, but it’s all about learning to find what works for you and using your resources.

Happy holidays and don’t forget to shine!!

XOXO Kreadiv Misfit <3
