So, my Vocal merch came in...
I ordered the exclusive, $1,000,000, Vocal Top Story Shirt from the merch store. While I was gone on vacation, it came in the mail. Vocal, I love you, but I have to be honest in this review... I love the shirt too.
Being a Mom and looking Amazing
Here is the thing: Because I am now a mom, the typical thing that is said in Hispanic families is that it is not appropriate to wear clothes that make you look slutty. Being a mom, it looks weird for me to be wearing matching outfits such as a crop top with shorts, or flare pants with a form-fitted shirt. My sister-in-law would say to me that if I was still single and not a mom, I could dress in outfits that one would normally wear at a club and honestly I didn't like that mindset. I didn’t like feeling like being a mom meant that I don’t deserve to glow.
Turn text into custom-made clothing with AI
Isn't it true? We've all been caught in the whirlwind of searching for that "perfect" piece of attire. You have an idea, a spark, a vision of what you want, but it's nowhere to be found. You trawl through countless online stores, their glossy images and well-scripted descriptions promising the world but often delivering disappointment. Or maybe you've experienced the drudgery of physical shopping, pacing the maze of aisles and racks, your eyes scanning hundreds of hangers holding promises of a perfect fit, an ideal style. And yet, nothing.
Nostalgic Crush: AI Predicts What Decade Will Inform Trends Next
From butterfly clips and low rise jeans to vintage-inspired shows such as "Daisy Jones and the Six" and "Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies," nostalgia-informed fashion and culture seem to be taking over today's trends. As all-consuming as this might feel, the March 1980 issue of Penthouse proves that it is not a new phenomenon at all. Reading Marjorie Rosen's "View From the Top" column "Bring Back the Sixties," it becomes clear that culture has been stuck in this cycle for many years. Asking AI about this recurrence reveals a bit more history on the trend, an apt overview of how archives fit in, and examples in today's culture we have all observed firsthand.
Ladies Fashion in the Victorian Era
The one thing that always impresses me personally, when looking at a Victorian-styled dress, is the sheer “workmanship” that can be so clearly seen. Every dress was cut, put together and sewn — by hand! These dresses were “High-Fashion” and very similar to our Haute Couture today. The skill of the embroiderers who attached their piece of work to the dress is comparable to the dresses the rich women wore in the Tudor Era. It is no wonder that these dresses were so expensive, when we think about the time involved to ‘create’ them and the sheer skill — it is no wonder that only the very rich could actually afford these dresses.
How I Made the Midsommar Dress
For Halloween, I love to go ALL OUT. This costume was no exception. I wanted to make the Midsommar May Queen dress from the moment I saw Ari Aster's film in all of it's psychedelic, horrific glory. I'm no stranger to making costumes and playing dress-up, but I knew this would be a serious undertaking. Most of my costume skills involve hot glue, and seeing as I sewed through my finger in Home Ec class during high school, I had to call on my mom for help to get started.
There are 25 wonderful buildings that people can't bear to look at directly, one more strange than the other
There is nothing strange in the world. In general, no matter where in the world, whether it is high-rise buildings or bungalows, most of the buildings are stable. However, there are also some buildings that are unusual and innovative. Some have become landmarks and classics, which are praised by people. Some are wonderful and become laughingstock in people's mouths.
The Scariest Thing of all - Going Bald
Never mind the sleepless nights, worrying about the needle pricks to come. Forget about the seemingly endless nausea and the pills meant for schizophrenics repurposed for vomit prevention. Ignore the fatigue, appetite loss and weight gain. What's the worst thing that happens to a girlie-girl on chemo? It's simple. Going bald. Losing one's hair, eyelashes, eyebrows and sometimes even nails is most definitely a nightmare.
How to Determine Your Season
Winter, spring, summer, and autumn are more than seasons of weather. They are also seasons of color. And each of us is a season, based on our individual physical traits. The combination of our skin tone, hair color, and eye color determines which season we are, and this indicates which colors (clothing, makeup, and accessories) are best suited for us.
How to Dress: Streetwear
Trainers. Starting from the bottom, we have trainers. But not just any kind of trainers. I feell like chunkier trainers look best. Most streetwear outfits have a baggier fit on the bottom half of the body, so having trainers with a bit of volume, a bit of shape ensures that it will be seen and not a mere memory in an pic for the 'gram.
The 2022 Met Gala Controversies
There’s glitz. There’s glamour. And there’ s money. Everywhere. On the night of the Met Gala, an annual, themed, fundraising event hosted by the Metropolitan Museum cameras are flashing and A-list celebrities are posing. The red carpet is blitzed out with million dollar jewelry and beautiful clothing most people could only ever dream of.
My Picks From Bloomingdale's
Late night “window shopping/ what’s in my cart” from Bloomingdales. Every time I visit LA I go to Bloomingdale’s. I always see celebs when I am in there. It’s great for shopping and people watching, that I don’t get in Houston. Since it’s one of my favorite places to shop in person and I haven’t been in a while I thought I’d take a look and see what’s new. They have some great brands like Aqua, Sandro, Sept a Cinq and so many more. Here’s my current wishlist plus some things I have in my cart.
