Before my blog was about fashion it was about romance. I used to write about it all the time as it was something I was naturally passionate about. I still just as passionate about it today but rarely ever express my thoughts because writing about romance means you have to be vulnerable and also talk from experience. I am very private about my love life so it isn’t easy talking about romance when you are a public figure and everyone is in your business. However, I want to go back to being comfortable enough to share these things with you, things I wish I would have read in the past that could have helped me identify the mistakes I made being with the wrong people. This isn’t a post to bash and generalize every man in the world. This is about what I learned from the very few men I have allowed into my life and also about the experiences my friends have had in the past. I think these lessons don’t only apply to women but can also be applied to men as some women are just as guilty of these faults. I wish I would have known then what I know now and I still feel like I am learning and still have a lot of learning to do. Maybe I have just been unlucky with my own experiences but I hope that my luck will change one day so I am able to talk about romance without a flicker of doubt. And since these are just my opinions, you don’t have to agree but respect that this is all I know from my own experiences.
Ready. Set. Learn.
It was yet another lovely day in Vegas so my bestie and I decided to go cruising around town. We like to drive around our beautiful neighborhood sometimes to see the pretty houses and whilst getting lost in our wanderlust we came across an intersection of the golf course that was adorned with flowers. It was so pretty so I took a moment to document the outfit I wore on this gorgeous day in Vegas. I went through my archives and found a vintage dress I haven’t worn in ages that fits me so much better now that I have gained a bit of weight haha. Sometimes gaining a few pounds isn’t a bad thing haha! It has a beautiful black leaf print and a split on the knee that ruffles out mermaid style. It is such a comfortable, elegant, yet sexy little number. I wore the dress with a sash belt, my vintage wicker purse, vintage parrot necklace, and Jessica Simpson wooden semi-wedges. The sun was intense so I also wore my vintage gold sunnies. Read More
Every year my friend Greg has a really huge cholo party at Beauty Bar for his birthday where everyone dresses up as cholos and cholas. He is mexican so this is his way of celebrating and/or introducing his culture to everyone in Vegas. It was a lot of fun and I had been anticipating this party for a while so I could tap into my inner chola. Everyone dressed up for the occasion and his best friend DJ Maybelline (who is also one of my good friends) played some cool west coast hip hop sets, there was a mariachi band, and some really dope bands like The Delta Bombers played too! To top it all off, they even had a Chola piñata! It was a pretty amazing birthday party for Greg if you ask me, and he deserved it! I invited my friend Nubia who is also a new Las Vegas resident and she had a blast too. Her, Yocelin (DJ Maybelline), and I looked like the only girl gang when we left my house. Yoce wore a mens shirt, khaki shorts, high socks, and bandana printed loafers. Nubia wore my Elvis Mug shot T-shirt, jeans, Jordans, and a bandana. I wore a Rik Villa top with matching baggy pants, a white tank, black Nike sneakers, and a bandana to match the Rik Villa set. I had prepared for this party for some time now, but I was ready to take it to the next level and get more creative so I drew an entire sleeve tattoo on my arm with waterproof Avon eye liner haha! I tested it out and it was the only thing I had in the house that was smudge proof, water proof, but could still be taken off in the shower. I couldn’t even believe the masterpiece I created but man, people were complimenting me all night saying I should be a tattoo artist and if not, I should totally get a permanent tattoo done with the design I created. I just went online and looked up gangsta Disney princesses so that’s where the inspiration came from. Anyway, we totally looked the part and I wish I could be a chola every day after that night haha. I might still incorporate some of that gangsta-ness to my regular looks, who knows haha!

It was the last day of Viva and I was about to end it with a BANG in my vintage swimsuit from “What Was Is Vintage.” I have had this 3 piece suit in my closet for almost a year waiting to wear it for Viva. It is one of my absolute favorite vintage pieces in my wardrobe along with the other swimsuit I wore 2 days before this which was also sold to me by “What Was Is Vintage.” I love the oriental print and MAN the fit was perfect and didn’t need to be altered at all! It looked so perfect with my custom hair flower by Nic Coco Creations. I even sported a vintage parasol that I had listed at my shop haha. It was one of those perfect outfit, perfect hair, and perfect makeup days that only happen once in a blue and I was ready for a day at the pool for the official vintage swimsuit contest with my loves. The only thing missing was my love Janell whose flight was that morning. We missed her!
At the Orleans pool everyone looked amazing and were so wonderfully dressed for the occasion. It was like this was the day to rest after all of the partying and everyone just wanted to chill out, drink, and sun bathe. I got to see lots of my friends there and met so many lovely people too. We stayed for a while and then headed to Caesars Palace because I wanted to show my friend Sunny the Tatyana and Beach Bash stores. We were like two kids in a candy store shopping our little hearts out and then went off to Casa Don Juan for some FOOD. After that…well..we went into a food coma and passed out lol. Read More
