I went out shopping today and who can not say Miami is a shopper's paradise! I feel compelled to share with you what I believe is a great way to UPDATE any outfit without spending LOTS OF MONEY! And because they are such a BIG TREND now, I give you some ideas on what to get and how to make them work for you!


How to chose the right one for us?

As a general rule keep in mind that whatever we wear near or on our faces (such as a necklace, earrings, sunglasses) should NOT follow the BASIC RULE OF "like enhances like".

To simplify:

  • If your facial shape is ROUND, DO NOT buy a necklace with round stones all over.  You will look so much better with any other geometrical angular shape, such as squares, triangles, or rectangles. 
  • If you have a very angular facial shape, such as Square, Diamond or Rectangle then go ahead and choose rounded, softer shapes
  • If your face is more like an Oval, you can carry any shape very well.

Gold and Colored and enameled stones, are BIG this season. Also wearing short necklaces on top of your buttoned "all the way" up shirts, blouses and dresses  is a must! ;-)

If you don't like to wear chunky big necklaces near your face, a great idea is to use different lengths of very thin necklaces at the same time to create a bold but softer look.

I am loving black bows, made with lace, worn as a necklace!

Those are the basic rules! Now, Go ahead and break some!

Always looking your best is the only rule to follow!

good for round facial shapes
good for angular facial shapes (specially rectangular)
Ideal for Square and Rectangular facial shapes, but also great on Pear or Inverted Triangle

Hoy sali de shopping por la ciudad de Miami, donde ir de compras es deporte olimpico oficial!

Entre todas las cosas que vi, hoy quiero contarles  cuál es uno de los Trends mas grandes para esta temporada de Primavera-Verano. Lo mejor de este Trend es que es una manera muy facil de modernizar cualquier vestuario, sin tener que gastar millones. Porque los accesorios, sirven para eso....y que mejor que el trend de esta temporada, 

los Collares!!!

Les deje unas fotos para inspirarse, y que sirvan de guia para comprar. Como regla básica general, todo lo que se lleve en la cara o cerca (gafas, aretes, o collares) deben seguir la regla Inversa. Es decir, si tenemos un rostro de forma Redonda, nos veremos mejor, si elegimos collares que tengan forma angular, puede ser por ejemplo con piedras cuadradas, o rectangulares. Asi mismo si nuestra forma de rostro es mas Cuadrada, nos veremos mejor, con collares que tengan piedras redondas, o formas mas suaves.

Utilizar el collar por encima de la blusa, camisa o vestido, apoyado a nivel de la clavicula o levemente por encima, es un "fashion" statement instantaneo! Las camisas mejor abotonarlas hasta el último botón. 

Me encanta también como se ven los moños en raso negro, atados al cuello! Esa es una idea que no requiere muchos recursos, y que se ve muy bonita!

Pero bueno, las reglas fueron hechas para romperlas! ó por lo menos eso es lo que dice constantemente mi compañera que también es fashion stylist!
 Entonces a romperlas! que n definitiva es lo más divertido! pero acuerdense que podemos divertirnos siguiendo algunas reglas básicas que nos permiten vernos siempre estupendas!


  1. que buenos collares! nunca habia pensado en la importancia de las formas...como se que forma es mi cara?

  2. perdon Do you speak Spanish?

  3. Hi! Yes I do! I will be posting soon about how to analyze your own facial shape
