Everyone is posting about the Oscars, so I might as well send my usual list of best dressed. The list, is of course, topped by stunning, can’t-get-enough-of, super talented Lupita Nyong’o in Prada. It’s most likely I’m not posting anything you haven’t seen already on other lists, but hey, here’s my two cents!

Todo el mundo esta comentando acerca de los Oscares, así que como es costumbre compartiré mi lista de mejor vestidas.

Fierce and Glam: Neon everywhere!

Neon colors in fashion were last seen in hideous ensembles from back in the 90’s… and honestly, I thought they’d never be back in style. But since last year, they started peeking here and there in small details in shirts or accessories, and now, they are everywhere! What is the difference between back then and now? The 2013 version is much more glam, sophisticated, and may we add, fierce!

Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries Fragrances

 

Excellent news for perfume lovers! Oscar de la Renta has launched a new line of six, yes, six new exquisite fragrances. Each with its own special characteristics, but always involving Oscar de la Renta’s luxurious mark.

 

Sargasso

A green fragrance that evokes the essence of the sea. An accord of citrus, cucumber, green notes and patchouli. Crisp and invigorating.

Oriental Lace

As its name states it, an oriental fragrances with notes of hova carnosa flower, honey, bitter almond, dark cacao and patchouli. Described as daring and mysterious.

Coralina

Another intoxicating floral scent, described by Mr. de la Renta as very “ladylike, refined and rare.” A gorgeous mix of mimosa, violet, orris, and woody green notes.

Granada

Granada represents femininity and romance, like the beautiful Spanish city. It is a citrus-floral perfume with the scent of jasmine, bitter orange and exotic roses.

Santo Domingo

This fragrance was inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s Dominican origins, the beautiful Santo Domingo, which is his birthplace. It smells of citrus notes (mandarin) mixed with coriander, tobacco, patchouli and spices. 

Mi Corazon

A bouquet of beautiful white flowers like tuberose and ylang-ylang with peach. Floral yet unexpectedly tropical.

Inspiration: Raf Simons’ Accessories from his Debut Collection for Dior

Raf Simon’s first collection for the house of Dior is exquisite. Here’s a glimpse of the gorgeous accessories, featuring veils, jewelery, and of course, shoes. Pure and simple elegance. The style? Very romantic.

Cute colors for your mani/pedi

Top Ten nail polish shades for this summer

For your next mani and pedi, I present the ten biggest trends on nail polish shades for this summer! The only common denominator here is the bright colors, but we have neons, pastels, metallics, and some very unexpected hues. The trick is to keep your nails short and chic, unless you are all into the spiky manicure, then go against the trend! Whatever you decide, it’s all about having fun!

1. Bright purple looks great on all skin tones.

2.  Aqua is everywhere this season, especially in accessories. Choose a darker tone if you have light to medium skin, or a lighter shade of aqua if you have darker skin. I promise it will pop!

3. Bubble gum pink was everyone’s favorite color when we were little. Why not bring back those Barbie memories on our nails? Besides, a bright pink always makes you stand out from the crowd in a very, very positive way.

4. Coral looks amazing on everyone. Enough said. Bam!

5. Chartreuse is huge this season, but it can be very hard to wear, especially if you’re color shy. Why not add a small touch of this bright green shade on your pedi?

6. I find orange to be a very hard shade to wear, especially if it is this sherbert-y. It’s a little tricky for fair skin, so choose a deeper orange if you feel washed out.

7. Yellow! Reminds me of sunshine and happy faces. This shade would definitely make you smile every time you got a glimpse of your pretty hands/toes.

8. One of my favorite colors, mint green is a great neutral with this season’s fashions. Don’t worry if you think it’s a little too pale for your light skin, you look so soft and pretty! Same thing for darker skin tones. Lovely!

9. Remember that post about Chanel’s summer nail colors that were completely opposite to the neons everywhere? Once again, the brand manages to make a huge statement and set a trend on nail polishes. Bronze flatters every skin tone, and remember, metallics work great as neutrals.

10. Last week I posted about dusty pink. Add this beautiful pink to that. It’s a classic shade for your nails, and for a good reason. You can never go wrong in this ultra feminine color.
