Peter Pilotto for Target: Part 2


Happy Saturday! My birthday is coming up and I'm so ready to celebrate! I just came back from another work trip in north Texas and I'm glad to be home for a few days with my love before we head out to our vacation in Puerto Rico. The weather is wonderful and San Antonio is right in the middle of the Fiesta festival, so there's a ton of fun activities going on in the city. Today, I'm wearing the Peter Pilotto for Target belted dress with my favorite gladiator sandals. I got these a few months ago from, umm..., oh, I forgot where I got these! Well, I'll give you a few options of similar ones, lol. Anyway, have a great weekend!

Feliz Sábado! Mi cumpleaños está a la vuelta de la esquina y estoy lista para celebrar! Acabo de regresar de otro viaje de trabajo y estoy contenta de estar en casa por unos días antes de salir a mis vacaciones en Puerto Rico. El clima está maravilloso y San Antonio está en medio del festival conocido como Fiesta, así que hay muchas actividades en la ciudad. Hoy llevo puesto el traje de Peter Pilotto para Target y mis sandalias gladiadoras favoritas. Las compré hace varios meses de, ehh... ay, se me olvidó donde las compré! Bueno, les comparto varias opciones  de sandalias similares, jaja. Que tengan un buen fin de semana!

Peter Pilotto for Target (part 1)


Hi! I'm so excited about  a little project I've been working on for the blog, but before I unveil it, I did want to share my thoughts on the Peter Pilotto Collection for Target so, I divided this into a 3 part series. You may think that I'm a little late to talk about this Collection but it's actually deliberate. Whenever Target does collabos, I get 1, maybe 2 pieces at first. When that sale kicks in a month later, that's when I hit the stores! The collection is on sale right now and it's just awesome!
This look is the blouse and the shades from Peter Pilotto x Target. I love the print, it's a bit busy but it's so pretty and wearable. I paired it with a quilted vegan leather skirt (thrifted) and cut out booties from Shoedazzle. For this rocker chic look, I also wore my favorite cuff earrings, the neon yellow just adds that extra pop. I'll be posting the remaining looks during the following days, as I prepare for my vacation with my fiancé to Puerto Rico. I'm so excited!

Hola! Estoy super emocionada con un proyecto que estoy trabajando para el blog, pero antes de revelarlo quiero compartir lo que pienso acerca de la Colección de Peter Pilotto para Target, así que dividí este post en una serie de 3 partes. Puedes pensar que estoy un poco tarde para hablar de esto, pero es deliberado. Cuando Target hace colaboraciones siempre me compro una o dos piezas, al mes ponen todo en especial y ahí es que ataco a las tiendas! La colección está en especial ahora, así que no se lo pierdan!
Para este look utilizé la blusa y las gafas Peter Pilotto x Target. Me encanta el patrón, tiene mucho pero es tan bonito. Lo combiné con una falda de cuero de estilo alcolchado que conseguí en una tienda de segunda mano y mis botitas de Shoedazzle. Para este look rockera chic, también tengo unas pantallas neon que le añaden aún más color. Estaré mostrando los demás looks en los próximos días en lo que me preparo para mis vacaciones a Puerto Rico junto a mi prometido. Qué emoción!

Day Glam



This 3.1 Philip Lim for Target print flew off the shelves in  a matter of hours when the collection debuted in September! The blown up blue, mustard and cream cheetah print is so different and at the same time toned down enough to wear to the office, just add a cardigan. This particular look is perfect for a lunch date  or day drinks with the girls!

Este diseño de 3.1 Philip Lim para Target se vendió en tan solo horas cuando debutó la coleccion el pasado Septiembre! El patrón de cheetah agrandado en colores mostaza, azul y crema es tan diferente y la vez neutral suficiente como para usar en la oficina, pareado con un abrigo liviano. Este look en particular es perfecto para una cita de almuerzo o tragos con las chicas!






What I wore:
Blouse: Forever 21
Skirt: 3.1 Philip Lim for Target
Clutch: Vintage piece from Ouna's Closet
Jewelry: Sam Moon
Shoes: Parker from Shoedazzle

Flowers & Spikes


My love for this dress is infinite! I think I have a special place in my heart for it because when I went looking for it from the 3.1 Philip Lim Collection for Target, my size wasn't available. About a month and a half later I found it and it was on SALE!!! I have a method with these designer collabos; I'll do the launch day, buy 1 or 2 pieces, then... the waiting game. When they put them on sale, the deals are incredible. The fact that I don't live in NYC or a hub city makes a huge difference. I always find available pieces and no need to run around the store pushing others or tear away that blouse from anybody. People are so laid back here about it, so that means more for me!

Mi amor por este traje es infinito! Creo que guarda un lugar muy especial en mi corazón porque cuando fuí por él para la Colección de 3.1 Philip Lim para Target, mi talla no estaba disponible. Un mes y medio despues lo encontré y estaba rebajado de precio!!! Desarrollé un método para estas colaboraciones de diseñadores; voy el día del lanzamiento, compro una o dos piezas, y luego... a esperar. Cuando les rebajan el precio, las ofertas son increibles! El hecho de que no vivo en Nueva York o una mega ciudad tambien hace una gran diferencia. Siempre encuentro las piezas que quiero y no hay que pelear por ellas. La gente aquí es mas tranquila, así que eso significa más para mi!

Just keep dancing


I've been dancing since I was 5 years old. I remember when my Mom took me to Ballet Class in Brooklyn, NY, I was so excited, I could barely contain myself. After I moved to Puerto Rico at the age of 9, I never went back to ballet, not because I didn't want to, but there was always some sort of obstacle that got in the way. I started getting involved with sports instead and forgot all about dancing until I got to High School, where I became Co-captain of the Cheer Squad and started the dance team. I kept choreographing in college and performing here and there, but never anything serious. About 4 years ago, I got the itch again and I formed the dance team in Puerto Rico for the Young Women's Division for the Soka Gakkai Intl., Buddhist Organization. We performed in every chance we had and it felt wonderful!
Flash forward to today, I'm 31 years old and I haven't stopped moving. I formed the dance team for the SGI YWD in San Antonio, TX, my new home. I've realized that dancing doesn't only make me happy, but it's a vehicle for joy for others as well. I get other young women to dance and feel good about themselves and we make our audience happy. We're not professional dancers, any of us, but the energy, the fun we have and the desire to make people get up from their seats and move, has given me more joy than I could ever imagine. My mission is to create a world of peace through the power of movement. I will never stop dancing!

"Live with a dancing spirit. The stars in the heavens are dancing through space, the Earth never ceases to spin. All life is dancing: the trees with the wind, the waves on the sea, the birds, the fish, all are performing their own dance of life. Every living thing is dancing, and you must keep dancing too, for the rest of your life!"
