"at the touch of love..."


  Isn't this quote lovely? I must say that Plato had a way with words. I made this on Tuesday while doodling with baby A. Well, that's all for now. I'm quite tired today, and I'm babysitting baby A as well. Today is just a day to relax and clean. What a day off, right? Sucks to be me right now.

it's Monday...

1) thank you note to my customer 2) cheese and chocolate cake from the coffee shop I now love 3) Crown Beach, Alameda, CA. 4) New Poshmark items 

  Well, this weekend has been full of movies. I went to go watch Furious 6 (Fast and the Furious) and The Hangover 3. I love comedy and action movies so those were awesome! They were some awesome movies but my favorite was Fast and the Furious 6! I also went to this coffee shop I've been meaning to go to and I just love it! I think I'll go there again some other time. Also; I put new items up on my Poshmark, so be sure to check out my closet! Well, I have got to get ready to get to work, I hope everyone enjoys their Monday!

currently wearing a lot of...

1 / 2 / 3
  Layering, cinched waistlines and denim; that's what I've been wearing lately. I live in Oakland, right across the bridge from San Francisco and it's been chilly these past few days. The sun has been out to play but the wind is quite cold if you're not prepared with layers. Thankfully, I have lived here all my life and I know the weather and it's unpredictability.
 As I said, it hasn't been that cold but a little wind makes all the difference. So I've been wearing my trusty ELLE jean jacket with hoodies and sweaters underneath. My jacket is a staple piece for my wardrobe. I wear it with dresses and even full skirts. I just love that I can dress my jacket up or down.
 Another thing I've fallen in love with are full skirt dresses. Those fit and flare dresses do wonders to my figure. The best ones are the ones with a high neck line and diminish my bust. I have always liked those dresses but I didn't fall in love with them until a few months ago. I now own a bight cheery yellow one, an off white one and a couple of skirts too. The trend is going to stick for me, it's too god to come and leave next season.

 Denim has also been big for me this Spring. I have a couple of denim shirts and I am quite enjoying incorporating them in my wardrobe. As a matter of fact, my sister is too! From jean jackets to jeans shirts and vests and skirts, denim is great to work with. The versatility of dressing it up or dressing it down is fascinating. I don't think I've appreciated denim until now.

  Well, that's enough of my babbling. I have a little DIY I want to do, so I have to go.

doodle, doodle, done...

  Just call me, Miss V the Artist (insert French accent). Well, I haven't been doing much lately, I've been too tired to do much of anything really and since the weather has been real nice this weekend, I stayed indoors. I work weekends and get up early so I get tired and the heat makes me irritable. But anyways...! I've had a few people that have ben interested in the items I put up for sale on Poshmark, but not interested enough to buy. It's okay, though because all in it's due time is best.

  As I've mentioned before, I make unique little thank you notes for those who purchase something from me; example here. This time my inspiration came from Polyvore. The first doodle has lyrics from "Yellow" by Coldplay.  The second one has my very ugly and uneven writing. But I quite like the outcome of both of these doodles. I just hope that the customer likes the product and the little note as well. Anyways, have a good night.

On sale on #Poshmark!

New Stuff on sale in my closet! A few more coming in next week, keep updated by following me!


"we just now got the feeling that we're meeting for the first time..."

 Aren't these quite a few poses? This month alone I've posted more looks on Chictopia than usual! I guess I'm trying to find my niche and discover my style. All of my life I've been the versatile girl who wears high heels to church and is seen wearing dirty Converse or Vans in the streets. Most of the time it's viewed as a good thing that I'm flexible and dress by my moods, but sometimes it's a hassle since my closet is filled with conservative clothes to laid-back and casual clothing.

  I love my clothes, don't get me wrong; I want to have less, have structure, you can say for my self. And that's not going to happen until I find my voice in clothes. I need to find more uses for what I already have. and stop buying so many impulse buys.

  Anyways, I like that I'm trying new things, but I still have to take pictures where others can see me. I'm not really shy, but I need to be more confident. One step at a time, I guess.


"that may be all I need..."

  After looking around, I've finally found a new pair of glasses. Yesterday I went to the optometrist and got a new pair of glasses. They're blue and they're Ray-Bans. I just love them. After that I went to Walmart to get some stuff. And lastly, some In-N-Out. I'm cleaning out my closet slowly and selling some stuff at Poshmark. So if you guys can check it out, that would be great. 

  Today I will be going to the DMV and doing my written test, so wish me luck!

"making my way downtown..."

  Here are just a few shots I took while walking down the beach after a coffee date with my friend. It was windy and just beautiful out.

 Well, isn't this different?  This Sunday is mothers day, so firstly, Happy Mothers Day! My mom is no longer living, but that doesn't mean I don't celebrate her amazingness. This year I am a bit more... solid in my emotions and I was able to keep it together and not cry and think very fondly of my mother.

  Enough with the heavy stuff! Today I was so annoyed for no reason and I decided to go to Pintrest and see my Inspiration board. I settled with this as my look after looking at a white dress and a vest over it. I got Olly and decided to take a few pictures. This one is from my instagram, but I quite like it. Anyways... I just have one more thing to say; Iron Man 3 was the shizz! I loved it. And you know what? I am going to see it again! Haha!!


PS: I have a more pictures on Chictopia ;D

"I'm just a little bit caught in the middle..."

skirt; MERONA / shirt; FOREVER 21 / flats; H&M

  It's the weekend; another outfit post! Well, I wasn't feeling all that well on Friday and I wasn't going to go to church But I opted to drag my lazy bum out of bed and change. Luckily I had a top I had in my closet for over two months, but I didn't know what skirt to wear it with, so I asked my sister if I could wear one of her many bold colored skirt and after deciding that I didn't want to wear blue on electric blue, I chose the carrot orange (although it looks red) skirt to pop out with the blue.

  I don't usually do color-blocking, but this spring has changed that. It's been a pretty good year so far. That's all for now!

Feliz dia de las Madres!

  Happy Mother's Day! Just because my mother passed away doesn't mean I appreciate her any less. So, to show my love to all the ladies who have a privilege mothers I celebrate them and send them my love, alongside cards like these that I mailed out yesterday. So Happy Mother's day to all those who are reading this.


PS: Today is Mothers day for Latinos, just FYI if you didn't know.

"I just want to run..."

  *Sigh* I wish I was traveling. I was sitting down at the beach when this airplane flew right over my head. I just had to snap a picture. But, hopefully I get to this Fall. If I plan carefully and save up my money diligently then I think it could be done. Where do I want to go? Well, I don't want to say yet, but let's say I'll have the pleasure of playing the part of a tourist for real this time. I really, really want to sell half my closet -- at least -- since I'm going to go be paying for my sister's flight and room as well. So check out my Poshmark closet, would you please? That would be very much appreciated. Well, that's all for now. Have a great day! I'm off to have some coffee with a friend.

it makes me pop...

  Okay, so this is my new wristlet. Cute isn't it? Well, as I said before, I've been buying a few Coach wristlets. I have a few; a silver-y blue wristleta beaded tan colored suede wristlet (here's a picture with my whole outfit). Oh, and I also have a Coin purse as well; which I just love. There's one on the way that I just bought on  I usually go for neutral colors and the likes, but I liked this one so I bought it on a whim. The pink is cute, and I love pink, so I can't complain. I was kind of skeptical for a while, but it's grown on me. I haven't used it, hence the tags on it still. But I will use it soon.   I just have to think what outfit do I wear it with!  Well, I've got to get ready for work, bye for now!

"just put your foot infront the other..."


  Just a few shots I took this Sunday. It was gloomy and not at all cold. I haven't taken many pictures lately since just last week I worked 6 out 7 days. It's been a grueling week and I'm glad it's over. Anyways; Here are some shots.

"I'm walking on Sunshine..."

  I'm in love; don't you love it too?  I bought it over at Poshmark,com and I got it on Saturday. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I bought it on a whim (like I seem to be doing my shopping lately) and I don't regret it. But this isn't the only Coach product I've bough in the last 24 hours. I just bought another Coach wristlet and another one on Poshmark again. But I am no longer going to buy any (I hope)!   I have to save my cash for a trip I'm thinking about taking. I won't say anything right now since I haven't gotten all the facts; but once I do, I'll be skimming on everything! But it would be worth it. Anyways, I'll show the rest of my wristlets another day. For now, I have to get to work. Ta-ta!


PS: check out my "Closet" over at poshmark would you?

mixed media is always welcome...


Don't I look cool?  I am in love with the colors in this photo. I actually bought this blazer alongside my Rock and Republic blue shoes and I am so in love with it.  It's my first mixed media blazer and not the first impulse buy (or the last).

  The blazer makes me feel cool and collected and it also adds an instant touch of sophistication to a basic
skirt like the one I'm wearing. This outfit compared to Friday's outfit is a bit more casual but --in my humble opinion -- with the same girly touch.

  I must say that my sister has gotten better at taking my pictures. She doesn't take many, but with what she does take I work with. And I am very grateful for her. I have also noticed that I am quite obsessed with Coach wristlets lately. I'll let you guys know about that tomorrow. Anyways, go check me out at instagram!

that #Pleated Chick

  Pleats and fit and flare dresses, I am so in love with them.  Like, really! I love how these dresses are made to cinch you waist and flare at your hips. I will admit that I am not the most curvaceous person out there but this dress makes me feel so confident and so dang princess like that I am in love with it. I hope that I can buy at least another dress like this before they start making them super expensive and super short. Anyways, this is what I wore yesteday and I love it. Casual but still classic. (I just noticed that I'm wearing a lot of light colors lately...) Good night!
