I started workingRead More →

It all started in ’97 or ’98 (can’t remember exactly, hehe), I was in Los Angeles shopping, and I came across this store in The Beverly Center, Traffic.  It was there that I stumbled upon what would become my signature look for at least the next 10 years…the Juicy Couture track suit.  Not sure what drew me to them, but the minute I tried one on, I thought the idea was fabulous.  It was basicallyRead More →

Get your wardrobe ready for Spring’s trends, with Zara. I will admit, I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic, hehe and I am sure that I’m not the only one out there, either.  These days with fashion literally  at our finger tips, it is hard not to want every single trend that comes our way.  When it comes to trends, however, I just can’t justify spending a lot of money.  Usually, the piece gets worn one timeRead More →
