Essential: Tailored Suit

5 Dec

Happy Hump Day Lovelies,

We all should own one, you know the one that makes you feel like you landed the job. Whether slacks or a skirt suit, we all need one. The rule is which ever is the most flattering to your body type, which is why I chose the skirt.  Skirts and dresses are always more flattering on me because I am very narrow, and being narrow gives the illusion of longer legs, as do nude heels or leopard as both are very neutral.

I have worn my suit to interviews, training conferences, and through out the blog,  only I combine it with different garments.

Essential Traveling Attire

4 Oct

Happy Thursday Jewels,

I am visiting my family in California this week and because I fly from Michigan to California several times a year I pretty much have mastered the traveling process.


I like to travel with my thick outdoor Burberry Scarf because I could use it as a blanket while I am flying if need be, plus it smells like my perfume which is much better then the blankets they give you on the plane it will also come in handy when I fly back home as the weather is very unpredictable this time of the year.

I also like to travel with my Ray Ban Aviators so that I don’t have to worry about my eye make-up when I land, however my lipstick is another story I always make sure I have it my purse to put on when I land, it literally brightens my face. I especially like a darker lipstick because red can be somewhat overbearing. I also like to travel with an open bag like this Wilshire Louis Vuitton it is big enough to hold all my essentials. My navy blue Banana Republic blazer becomes a staple for many of my looks, and a silk tank underneath in case I get hot I can take the blazer off silk tank: CHACOK.

My black skinnies by Paige are super comfortable and although I am wearing jeans since they are black they tend to look dressier, and last but not least my Cole Haan loafers in their Italian collections, I literally feel like I am wearing my house slippers and I can’t imagine wearing anything not comfortable while I am traveling, one thing I hate is to be uncomfortable because I become miserable, and no one likes to be around a miserable person.

I hope you find these tips useful for your next travels.

Off to the airport,
Monica

Back to School

22 Aug

Hello there Jewels,

It has been a while since I had to go back to school shopping and it was always a special occasion for us growing up. Our father had an annual meeting Labor Day weekend usually in the Northern part of California, or Nevada in Las Vegas, or Reno which is when we did most of our school shopping. My sister and I always made the best of it, and other times not so much.

Sister, if you were reading this you know what I am talking about “does the Sheraton Parking Lot in Concord California ring a bell?” If you are all wondering what it was, we were caught smoking by our mother who saw us from her hotel window and of course me being the older sister was blamed for it all. Omg, how embarrassing that was, we don’t smoke now, but you know how it is when you are growing up, you do it because you think it’s cool. Back to the school shopping, part of why I like going to school was dressing up every morning which is one of the reasons why I couldn’t have attended a private school because of the uniforms. However if I did I would hope it would include the Burberry plaids and Louise Vuitton.

My blouse actually has subtle polka-dots, I would have to have several print feminine blouses to mix with the plaids, it would be nice if they were the Burberry plaids, and of course my book bag would be by Louise Vuitton.

Sunnies: Tori Burch, polka-Dotted blouse: Forever 21 (old), belt J.Crew, skirt Burberry, flats Banana Republic, Bag Wilshire Monogram Louise Vuitton.

Until next time,
Monica

A Hidden Jewel

2 Aug

Hello Jewels,

Here I thought that most of my life I lived in the “Golden Coast” (California) until I came across the Gold Coast of Michigan known for its majestic beaches, some rocky and some with soft white sand, 70 degree waters compared to the Caribbean, swimming with standards poodles, (second picture towards your right) surrounding small charm towns, and breathtaking sunsets. We ventured off to North Point Beach, and Sleeping Bear Dunes voted as the most beautiful place in the Country according to Good Morning America.

If you are looking for the true American Pie head on over to the northwest corner of Michigan also known for its farm land of growing cherries, and wineries, all the surrounding restaurants will master their own special recipe using cherries.

Thank you God for placing me in such a beautiful state.

Until next time,
Monica
