Crushed Velvet is Back!


Hi babes!

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a ton of fun! I will tell you all about it in next week’s post. I’m so excited because I’m going to share with you something awesome that I found and reveal something about the outfit I wore. So keep posted! Remember there’s a new post on the blog every Thursday.

So if you have been following my blog for the last month you might have noticed that this blog is all about affordable fashion. Yes, you can look stylish and fashionable without spending your whole paycheck on the latest trend. Just take me for example, I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes but I was still able to create this blog. It’s all about mixing, matching, and playing with the clothes you already own.

For this outfit, I wore my favorite jeans that you may or may not have noticed are the same I wore in my last blog post. Yes!!! I love them because they can look good with anything. No matter what they say, I don’t think skinny jeans will ever be out of style. I bought this pair of high waisted jeans at Express when they had a promotion going on. It was a buy one get one for $39.99 or something like that; I don’t remember that well because it was like three years ago. My favorite jeans are always from Express because they have sizes that fit me (petite), are made of good quality material therefore durable and best yet, don’t shrink or become bigger when you wash them and wear them a million times.

The light taupe crushed velvet camisole top I purchased recently at H&M’s back to school sale for $7.99 (I know… I don’t even go to school but who can blame me for taking advantage of this amazing sale?). The short, wide-cut top is still available in many colors: black, mint green, light taupe and rust. I chose the light taupe one because I think neutral colors give a more expensive look to it.

I think something velvet is a great addition to your wardrobe because it’s predicted to be the it trend of the fall… probably you already started eyeing it. Last year, we saw it become a popular trend but this year expect for the velvet trend to be a little different. We can all thank Prada, Koché and Erdem for making this trend a little more polished.

I purchased these faux leather pointed flats at Forever 21 about a year ago for $12. I think pointed white flats give a more sophisticated and polished look; they definitely can elevate any outfit. You can style them with skinny jeans (as shown), shorts or a little dress.

Hola Babes!

Ayer fue mi cumpleaños y quiero comentarles que me divertĂ­ muchĂ­simo! Les contarĂ© acerca de lo que hice y me usĂ© en el post de la prĂłxima semana. Estoy muy emocionada por quĂ© les revelarĂ© algo acerca de mi vestido…. AsĂ­ que estĂ©n pendientes!!! Ya saben que todos los jueves publico un nuevo post.

Si han leído mis blogs pasados (si no, me encantaría que lo hicieran), ya se habrán dado cuenta que en este blog hablo de moda a precios accesibles. Sí, te puedes vestir a la moda sin tener que gastar toda tu quincena en la última tendencia. Tómenme a mí por ejemplo, yo no gasto mucho dinero en ropa pero aun así fui capaz de crear este blog. Todo está en combinar y jugar con la ropa que ya tienes.

En este outfit use mis jeans favoritos que de seguro no se dieron cuenta que son los mismos que me puse en mi blog pasado. Sí!!! Me encantan porque se ven bien con casi todo; no importa lo que digan, yo pienso que los skinny jeans nunca pasarán de moda. Este par a la cintura los compré en Express cuando tenían una promoción de compra uno y el segundo te lo llevas por $39.99 o algo así; la verdad no recuerdo muy bien porque fue hace como tres años pero aun así recomiendo que estén checando su página de internet porque he visto que tienen esa promoción varias veces al año. La mayoría de mis jeans los compro ahí porque las tallas que tienen me quedan perfectas (petite… también tienen long para las altas), la mezclilla es de buena calidad, y lo mejor de todo, no se encojen con las lavadas ni se hacen grandes cuando te los pones como mil veces.

Esta blusita gris pardo de terciopelo la compré recientemente en la venta de regreso a clases de H&M por $7.99 (Ya sé que no voy a la escuela pero me pueden culpar por aprovechar una buena oferta?). La blusita es corta y suelta así que es muy cómoda (psst: todavía quedan varias blusitas de estas en H&M en varios colores: negra, verde menta, gris pardo y vino). Yo escogí la gris pardo porque los colores neutrales hacen que la ropa se vea un poco más costosa de lo que realmente es.

Yo pienso que algo de terciopelo (blusa, vestido, zapatos…) es una gran adición a tu armario porque va a ser la tendencia más grande del otoño… a lo mejor ya hasta empezaste a verla. El año pasado fue popular pero este año viene diferente, podemos agradecer a Prada, Koché y Erdem por hacer que este tendencia venga con un estilo mas pulido.

Los zapatos planos los compré hace como un año en Forever 21 por $12. Los zapatos blancos puntiagudos dan un toque más elegante y pulido a tu look; definitivamente pueden hacer que cualquier outfit se vea mejor. Los puedes combinar con skinny jeans (como yo), shorts o un vestido corto.
