Bracelet: Express Factory
The weekend is finally here Gals,
Who is struggling to find the perfect Easter dress?? I know I was, until I went to the mall and found the one at Forever21. Before I went shopping I had a picture in my head of what I wanted, this made it so much harder to find. I looked everywhere until a wall full of long flowy dresses appeared. I tried on 3. The first one looks like the one I picked but in a mauve pink color, I thought this was going to be the one. As I tried it on it blended with my skin color and didn’t pop, I wasn’t a fan. Then I tried a blue one with bigger flowers but this one screamed beach dress, not Easter. Lastly, I tried this one and I loved it, I guess this mustard color does look good on me.
As I was thinking about this dress and how to accessorize it, I really wanted a very simple look. As far as accessories goes they were very minimalist. Of course my favorite timeless piece from Timex was included, my IQ+ watch with the brown band, and a very simple bracelet from Express Factory. Yes, I know I said I wanted a simple look but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring, you can add unexpected details. Since the back of the dress was open, (one of my favorite things about it) a great way to add more character was by adding this strappy bralette. Last but not least these strappy chunky heels from Forever21 match the color of the roses; it’s one of those hidden details. Since the dress is long, there’s going to be times when you might have to pull it up a bit, and these cute heels are going to be seen. Plus if I didn’t have some type of heel helping me I would be dragging this dress everywhere. The little details throughout this outfit made it look more than just simple.
What Easter dress will you wear this time?
Adidas Cap: Lids
Dress: Joe Boxer
Another beautiful Wednesday here in the West Coast. You know what I love to wear when the sun is out and bright! That’s right, a super cute swing dress. I love this style because you can dress them up or down, and they are so comfortable you can take them from day to night easily (maybe I should show you how in a different blog post). For today I’ll leave you with this easy look you can wear to the park, brunch, sport games or to explore your town. I’m sure everyone has some of these items at home; give this look a try this season!
I love this super casual look, there’s just something about dresses and tennis shoes I love! Usually outfits like this one, I like to match my cap to my shoes. For today I chose these cool Adidas ZX Racer shoes, which I got at the Adidas outlet and they were super cheap!! Every time we go to the outlet mall, I make it a must stop store; there’s always little treasures I find in there! Of course I had to pair it with my new Adizero cap. I love the hat’s material; it’s so lightweight and soft. When I was first thinking of what to wear with these shoes, I had forgotten all about this cute little dress. I’ve had this dress for about a year and it wasn’t until this weekend when I was doing a little “inventory” check in my closet, that I found this black and white stripe dress that would be perfect for my outfit.
Wear your cool kicks, we’re near the weekend!
Hello lovely people,
TGIF! Am I right? With this Timex watch I am sure I’ll never be late again… Well only fashionably late! These “his and hers” smart watches are such great statement pieces, plus they help you live a healthier lifestyle. You get the best of both worlds! I wasn’t much of a watch girl until this year. Gio is always matching his outfits with his watches and they look great in his pictures, so of course when I got these bad boys in the mail I was ecstatic! They make great arm candy!!
The “his and hers” watches are from their IQ+ move collection. Their packaging made me think of the spy movies when they’re trying to get the jewel out of the glass box and there’s all these red lasers around it. I felt like I was getting my own jewel, the packaging looked simple but clean. It really made the watches pop. My watch had a brown strap and a gold tone case color, plus it came with an extra white rubber band. Gio’s watch had a black band and a silver tone case. Whether it’s wearing it out for a night in the town or to the gym both watches will definitely match anything and everything we wear. My favorite part was finding out all the special features they had. These lovely watches can track your activity throughout the day by connecting to your phone, it has a sleep metric, it can resist up to 50 meters of water, and it has an INDIGLO light up dial, and best of all there is no charging required. As soon as we opened them, we started to connect them to our phones. The first thing you need to do is download the Timex app, next when the app opens up it will ask you some personal questions, like your age, height, weight, etc. and how active you want to be. Then it will calculate how many hours of sleep you need and how many steps you need to get in a day. Finally it will give you instructions on how you need to sync your phone and watch together, so it can start collecting the data. Getting this connected was super easy and fast. Another cool feature that these watches have is that on the watch itself it has a meter that will track your activity, so if you don’t want to look on your phone you can glance at your watch and do a quick check. They also have different color bands you can buy online for only $18, there’s a really nice blue one I want to get. We have used these watches since the moment we got them in the mail and we are in love with them. Thank you TIMEX!
I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend

Huaraches: Mexicali, BC
Ya es martes y con eso dicho, bienvenido a otro segmento de Tequila y Tacones!!!! Hoy les voy a mostrar cómo estilé mis huaraches. Estos zapatos han recibido mucha “fama” debido a sus elaboradas combinaciones de colores y su versatilidad. Con decirles que hay compañías Americanas que han replicado este estilo de zapato. Sin embargo nuestros huaraches son más coloridos y la mejor parte es que son hechos en México.
Es súper fácil incorporar estos huaraches en nuestro día a día. Yo personalmente escogí esta combinación de colores porque: en primer lugar tiene el color piel; que combina con todo, en segundo lugar porque los colores son vibrantes pero sutiles y por último, porque son femeninos. Cuando comencé a pensar en lo que podría ponerme con estos huaraches, en un día en que la temperatura era de 90 grados, pensé inmediatamente en estos shorts de color anaranjado. Son muy cómodos y se ven muy de moda, además de que coincidían con el color naranja de mis huaraches! Bueno, ya que el clima no era de 90 grados el día entero, lo combine con esta ligera sutil chaqueta de color violeta azul. Para acabar el look yo escogí esta blusa de tirantes negra y un choker de color piel. Ya que estaba emparejando dos colores diferentes, decidí escoger colores neutros para reunir todo el look. Este conjunto, hace que los huaraches se vean muy modernos! Lo mejor es que lo puedes usar para cualquier ocasión. Puedes vestirte así para una visita al veterinario y un paseo en el parque, como yo lo hice, o salir a cenar.
Que tengan un excelente dia Hermosas!!!

Bienvenidas al segmento Tequila & Tacones, donde todo el segmento es dedicado a nuestros artículos Mexicanos. Les doy ideas de cómo usar estos artículos en nuestro día cotidiano, con cosas que ya tienen en casa. Hoy les voy hablar de los vestidos artesanales bordados a mano. Hemos visto que estos vestidos se han convertido en la nueva moda para toda mujer. Muchas ya lo han escogido para el día de su boda, otras lo usan para cubrirse en la playa y también se usan simplemente para salir. Yo compre el mío en una plaza en Mexicali, BC. Si quieres comprar uno desde los Estados Unidos, puedes buscar tiendas en internet. Encontré una base que se llama Kichink, que parece como la base Etsy de Estados Unidos, y mucho de los proveedores mandan para los Estados Unidos.
Este vestido bordado viene en colores radiantes y el bordado es espectacular. El color que yo escogí fue un azul cielo muy bonito. Los vestidos vienen en dos tamaños, ya sea mini o largo, el que yo compre es largo. Lo que use para combinar el vestido no es de México, son cosas que ya tenía en casa que compre en Estados Unidos. El vestido es como una batita y quería algo que le diera forma a mi cuerpo para no verme más grande. Con esto en mente escogí un cinto en color beige, para que le diera forma a mi cintura. Lo siguiente, fue la bolsa en color oro rosado y tiene un estampado de flores que se ve muy bien con el bordado del vestido. Después, me decidí por estos zapatos de tacón ancho y el color es una combinación entre beige y gris. Como pueden ver todo los accesorios son en tonos neutros para que resalten los colores del vestido. Por ultimo mi maquillaje lleva tonos rosados y rojos. Los labios son una combinación entre rosa y rojo, y en los ojos llevo rosa fuerte y rosa claro.
Que tengan un día muy colorido!

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow; let’s get ready to celebrate the LOVE! If you have been busy and forgot to plan your outfit in advance, I bring you a quick outfit inspiration to look beautiful on this day. My favorite part of this outfit is the little Ashley Stewart purse, it’s a great statement piece!! To all my gals who love small purses that just fit the essentials when going out, this purse is for you! I love how they did the red and black color combinations, it made the gold detailing really stand out. We all love seeing the pink and red combinations on this special day, which is why I chose to go for this super flowy fuchsia blouse. It was a tunic but I tied it in the front and tucked it in to give me some dimension. Now to give the outfit a little WOW factor I paired it with one of my favorite jeans I’ve ever owned. These patch-work denims are great for turning an ordinary outfit into something a little more glam. To finish out this look I went with some cut out chunky heels in a taupe color and cute gold and pink statement rings. Show me what you wear this Valentine’s Day in the comments below.
Let’s start this week by looking fabulous!
Bomber Jacket: Charlotte Russe (similar style)
Tank Top: Target (similar style)
Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Booties: Dottie Couture (different color)
Plaid Shirt: JC Penny (yes, it’s a man’s shirt!)
We’re almost at the end of the week!! Well today’s outfit is all about feeling comfortable but chic. I will be running errands and have a meeting later in the day. It’s a casual meeting, getting some information on a new development for luxury apartments. The project just looks so modern but I want to know about the number side of things. It all comes down to numbers, but any ways, this place gave me an urban modern feel and I thought this would be the perfect outfit for this “meeting”. I can tell you after leaving this place that indeed it was.
Without further ado, today I bring you the art of layering. We’re definitely in that time of year where we question if it’s hot enough outside to wear some light weight clothes or if it’s just the sun and in reality it’s freezing out. Still trying to get used to the West Coast weather, usually in Chicago you don’t think like this ‘till probably March or April. Today’s look I decided to go with dark wash jeans, a striped white and black tank top, a plaid shirt and bomber jacket. For accessories, I went for some grey booties and black and gold rings. This military green paired with black has been one of my favorite colors combos this winter season. My inspiration for this outfit was celebrities “off duty” look, which involves plaid shirts around the waist. Stripes is always something harder for me to wear because it either looks good or makes me look bigger so to offset this I went with the plaid shirt to accentuated my waist. These chunky heel booties are my favorite!! They just have so much detail and can easily be paired with anything. The gold and black rings were of different shapes, which matched the jacket’s zipper color. I like to find little details I can match to bring my outfit together, and this makes for different points of interest. I think this one is one of my favorite layering outfits, usually when I do layering it’s more on the top half of my body but this was a great change for once. Hope you gals enjoyed this outfit!
Smile a lot today we’re so close to Friday!
