Most kids grew up watching the Disney Channel but in my living room you could find my father and I watching Mexican classic movies from the 50’s in specific films with actress Maria Felix also known as “La Dona”. I remember admiring her dresses and beauty which were a constant inspiration for me even at a young age. Her style was impeccable keeping a balance between classy, bold and extravagant, she was great at accessorizing her timeless looks.
Below you can find a video with more of her best fashion moments.

There is no going back with this gorgeous dress by designer Mary Katrantzou the amount of embellishments and embroidery is just stunning. Embroidery, no u-turn patches along with beaded detailing simply delivers a paradise of uniqueness. This dress is so unexpected that you have to look twice to capture the massive amount of random patches stitched together to such a classy silhouette, this masterpiece simply works like magic. So impressive!!!

As an aspiring bridal designer I often get this question which goes a little like this, “wouldn’t it be boring to design in all white?” and my answer is always the same which is no-no, I believe it’s all in the details and a rich color like white is just as beautiful as any other color.
Of course getting married makes white a must but if right now all you have is a Pinterest board full of wedding inspiration and a long way to go for that imaginary wedding (not judging I’m on the same boat…shhh ) Then why don’t you make your all white outfit happen sooner, having an all white outfit for me is pure,fresh, peaceful and yet so powerful. What do you say guys, trying an all white outfit this weekend ? Let me know by sharing your comments down below!!!
Today I would like to share my favorite designer in the world the one and only Benito Santos, he is a Mexican designer based in Mexico, well known for dressing Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete in 2010. I had the opportunity to wear one of his dresses back in 2012 and I can honestly say his garments make you feel and look like a Goddess, it was a dream come true for me not only as a client but as a fashion design student. One of my favorite collections are his Bridal ones he is a master when it comes to dressing brides on that special day, if you have any doubt just take a peek at his campaigns I shared two of my favorite down below.

It’s the middle of the week and most of us begin to feel the load of work, but don’t worry we’re half way through and willing to survive another crazy week. Todays post is about a little inspiration and tips on how to glam up your Wednesday!!!
I found this gorgeous statement necklace at ALDO and I immediately felt in love with the massive amount of beads, it’s a very affordable necklace that you can wear to a wedding, prom or even on a casual WEDNESDAY, just pull out your favorite pair of jeans and T-shirt and boom you have a glam look in the middle of the week. This necklace is perfect to go and treat yourself to a glass of wine at one of your favorite restaurant, and yes you don’t have to wait until the weekend to glam up your day and mood.
Last June I took a trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico, the experience was fun and full of inspiration every corner I looked at was rich in color and it had something crafty. This is one of my favorite pieces that I found In Mexico it’s an embroidery fabric framed on the wall. Unfortunately this piece belonged to the Spa and it was not for sale, bummer!!!
One of the reason why I want to focus In Bridal design is because of beading,lace and embroidery, if you ask me its all about the details I hope I can continue to go back to Mexico and find more inspiration to share with you guys.
What do you think? Share your comments and let me know if you love embroidery as much as I do.
