Double Burgundy and Shimmering Ankle Boots

Burgundy lover and leather jacket

I am a burgundy lover. Today I am wearing double burgundy and a shimmering ankle boots. I think burgundy its one of the most beautiful and rich Fall colors and its enhance my skin tone. Burgundy It flatters like black but never looks boring. I am a wine lover so a burgundy outfit just shows how wine goes with everything.

 The weather was so nice during the day, I usually like to wear a Uniqlo Heattech under my sweaters so it keep me warmer without creating a bulky look.  I wore this outfit to the Rachel Zoe x Vogue Magazine pop up party last week (as seen in this past blog post). I wanted to wear a more neutral/monochromatic look and keep it casual but at the end I decided to add some black elements and use my new shiny sock ankle boots from Zara still keeping a neutral color theme.

Talking about my new boots… I saw this boots about a month ago but went to order and it was sold up so I happened to sign up for email notifications and finally was able to get my hands on a pair once they were back in stock. This pair of shimmering gunmetal ankle boots cost $60, it is sort of a party boots but they can easily be dressed up or down. It is like a sock-like fit, making them a great option to pair with wide-leg and cropped denim flares. I just checked ZARA website and I see there is a new color (dark pink) so I might get it. (Oh, and I do recommend going one size up )

Rachel zoe and vogue magazine partyRachel Zoe and Vogue party at Shopsimon


 Last week I got invited by Simon Malls to attend Rachel Zoe x Vogue Magazine pop Up party at Roosevelt Field Mall along with other influencers. I made plan to have a quick breakfast with two other bloggers before we head over to The Rodger Hotel were the bus was picking us up and we arrived right on time to leave and at 11am we headed over to Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, Long Island-NY.

  Upon our arrival we were welcomed with 2 waitresses holding trays with options to glass of champagne and 3 different flavors of juice to choose from but of course I picked the champagne but later on I tried the delicious mango juice.  The area was beautifully decorated with furniture and accessories from Z GALLERY.  After getting comfortable and sip some drinks they gifted us with Rachel Zoe Box of Style (a subscription box) and soon we started doing the bloggers thing, take pictures, including selfies, Snapchat, Instastorie. Then the boss babe Rachel Zoe arrived and all the attention and eyes went to her. After a while and more pictures she headed over to the stage were many people were waiting to her presentation and interview. She amazing, besides been a celebrity stylist that created her own fashion brand that has a chic and polished style by the way, she is an example of smart, powerful and brave woman.

 It was a fun day, filled with fresh cocktails, surrounded by new fellow bloggers, see the beautiful clothing from Rachel’s latest collection as well as the latest collection of one of my favorite handbags brand: FURLA! Visit Jo Malone store, get some samples and take a mini flowers bouquet home. After Couple hours we returned to the bus and headed back to Manhattan. And the first thing I did when I got back home was to open my Rachel Zoe box of style to see what was inside. 🙂

The weather was so beautiful and I wanted to dress more comfortable so I paired a pair off burgundy legging with a burgundy sweater to create a mix of monochromatic outfit with a black leather jacket and low heel boots.

My big thanks to Roosevelt Field Mall , Rachel Zoe and Vogue Magazine for having me as a VIP guest and provide such a great time.

As soon as I arrived they offered me some champagne, and immediately I said YES! As you know making costumer feel special its a kill . The store is beautiful with handbags everywhere, and there is a cute and chic Fall display with a nice bench, perfect to snap some photos.

It was a special afternoon, I had the pleasure to meet and talk to Steve, their photographer who did some photoshoot and Rosella, their social media manager, who gave me a tour of the store and showed their latest line of Fall collection, leather colors, and styles.

Blogging require lots of time and advancing planning. Most people have no clue how much time goes into planning and creating a blog post from initial communication to styling and shooting to photo editing and writing, you’re looking at hours of work. In order to have  a balanced life and be able to accomplish other things I need to have sort of editorial calendar in advance and schedule is crucial and a planner is a must have. Although I know how important is to give myself a certain time chunks in the week I am still struggling with this because I am not following the rules. I try to do many things at once and I end up getting stressed and even frustrated. And the main reason is because I don’t plan my day, week, month in advance. I am returning to college in January 2017 and of course continuing blogging but I need to make sure my academic year gets prioritized. I definitely need to get organized and one of my goals is to be a better time manager: Creating a daily, week routine plan. Plan my day before it unfolds.
