I'm all for looking to our shared Latino cultura for Halloween costume inspiration, but somehow I feel dressing up like a sexy Chihuahua or hardcore chola misses the mark. Not only are they terribly predictable, but they're pretty racist también. I think I'll pass, and you should too.
Latinos have a rich and varied culture, filled to the brim with tons of unique fictional and historical characters, as well as some undeniably recognizable pop culture icons. Seriously, why would you ever limit yourself to dressing up like yet another sexy señorita or devious maid when you can be the one and only Friday Kahlo or sexy J.Lo at this year's Halloween party?Continue Reading >
Crack open a bottle of red wine and get ready to celebrate! The Scandal-inspired clothing collection is finally here, and it's absolutely everything you ever dreamed it would be!
The Scandal collection launched at The Limited today, just in time for the long-awaited season premiere of the popular ABC series for which it's named. The collection features 78 gorgeous pieces, ranging in price from $49 for a top to $248 for Olivia Pope's signature white wrap coat. And don't even get me started on the tulip skirt sheath dress featured in the collection for $128! It perfectly captures the collection's "fabulous and fearless" theme.
I'm beginning to think the fashion gods that be have it out for curvy girls. Seriously! Every time I look at a fashion mag, it seems like they're telling me, an admittedly short and curvy chica, patterns, skinny jeans, crop tops, loose blouses, tight shirts, long skirts, short skirts, skirts in general, and everything in between are totally off limits for my voluptuous body. Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but that pretty much leaves us shapely women with nothing but A-line skirts and bell bottoms to wear. Um, that's pretty limiting if you ask me.Continue Reading >
It's a shame Eva Mendes isn't coming out and letting us see her pregnancy bump. If there's one celebrity who would make maternity wear look chic it's her. I've always really loved Eva's style. Not only is it sexy and sophisticated but the girl knows how to dress those amazing hips of hers. It's not always easy dressing a pear shaped body--trust me, I know! But Eva nails it every single time!
People are up in arms over a risqué photo featured as part of American Apparel's back-to-school campaign. The controversial campaign features a photo of what appears to be a teenage girl bending over into a car with her nalgitas on display. The pic was posted on the brand's UK Instagram account this week, and immediately removed amidst rampant backlash. Luckily, one quick-clicking Twitter user was able to capture the shot before it came down.Continue Reading >
There's nothing more annoying than having chichos spilling out of your skinny jeans or sporting layers of lumps underneath a too-tight outfit. We all have flaws, that doesn't mean we have to have them displayed for all the world to see. Feeling self-conscious about your muffin top lately? Don't sweat it chica, there's are ways to hide those trouble areas without going on a drastic diet!Continue Reading >
So you didn't get to lose those extra 10 pounds you wanted gone by June. Now you're walking around with unpleasant and pesky belly fat, but that doesn't mean you have to starve your way to skinny. In fact, I have a cousin who just had a baby and literally lives in maxi dresses. She claims that they cover everything she wants to hide like her tummy, but accentuate all the parts of her body she wants to show off, like her boobs. Maxi dresses are probably one the best fashion pieces ever invented since fajas and wrap-around numbers. They help disguise that middle like nothing else!Continue Reading >
There's no ifs or buts about it, Kim Kardashian looked gorgeous at the 2014 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night. That stunning navy blue and black gown (that featured a leg-baring thigh high slit) almost made me forget about that disaster of a dress she wore to the 2013 Met Gala. Remember that floral frock that looked like your abuela's coach? But all those bad memories reappeared in my head after seeing that crazy outfit she was wearing yesterday morning. I'm telling you, this had to be one of the worst thing this woman has ever worn!Continue Reading >
Guess who was crowned People's World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2014? The strikingly beautiful actress Lupita Nyong'o of course! Who else? Honestly, I think we all saw this coming. The honorary Latina is naturally stunning both inside and out. There's a reason why Lancôme decided to make her their latest beauty ambassador. That face is flawless!Continue Reading >
The MTV Movie Awards is all about having fun--especially when it comes to fashion! In fact, I was so impressed by some of the red carpet looks from last night. A lot celebs (including our favorite Latina stars) brought their A-game and some of them weren't afraid to show off a little skin. Seriously, I was drooling over Jessica Alba and Rocsi Diaz's crop top and A-line skirt combos the entire night!Continue Reading >
