2014 A Furry New Year

Hi TTC Readers!

Happy belated 2014 :) I’ve been working on a few projects, on my career and I’ve met someone who I’m happily getting to know :) which left me with less time to post. I’m back and ready to kick off the first post of The Trend Crush on 2014!

As you can see from these shots New York was recently bombarded with snow. I chose to wear my grandmother’s gift, this beautiful fur coat, which really kept me warm and allowed me to wear my pink pumps ;). I accessorized and kept warm by adding a print scarf and my Calvin Klein handbag.

I had the opportunity to speak with Rachel Laurel, the founder of Bloody-Fabulous who is very excited about their upcoming re-launch, as Bloody-Fabulous is moving to a new online location in about a week.

Rachel describes her site as “badass clothing, shoes, & accessories” and she could not be more right, you need to be a badass to wear her clothes! Her pieces are not meant for shy souls because in them you will stand-out in the crowd and be noticed ;).Bloody_20Fab-103_20copy_original

Winter Fun and an Update on the Monogram Contest!

FSCN1303

I hope you had a very exciting or a very restful weekend! It was a very eventful weekend for me, my friend and photographer Santiago Mejia is leaving for Kuwait. Santi is in the military, he was drafted and is actually on his way to Kuwait probably as I am writing this post. I want to thank him for taking the time to take hundreds of pictures and making this such a great and enjoyable experience for me. My brother decided to get all of his close friends and family together for a see-you-soon send off party and it was very much like the movie Hangover lol. I hope you will join me in sending the best of luck on this trip.

As far as today’s outfit goes, I really like these tights because they have a very common pattern, the houndstooth pattern, but you never would have expected it on tights! Since they standout so much, in and of themselves, I chose to combine them with a black romper and this beautiful Michael Kors jacket.

Trendy and Chic with the Tart Collections!

Happy Monday TTC Readers!

DSCN1231This Monday I am flaunting my elegant Patrice dress from the Tart Collections’s fall line! For those of you who are not familiar with Tart Collections, they are a chic California clothing brand that launched in 2004.  They have an awesome Hollywood following including Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Kourtney Kardashian, Katy Perry, Nicky Hilton and now me :).

All items from Tart Collection are available online. I ordered a size XS, which is fitted on my body and goes along with my style. If you prefer dresses that are less fitted on you, you might want to try a size up.  What’s great about this style is that it flaunts the curves on your body. The dress has a silver zipper, which is great because over time the fabric won’t stretch as much as it would if it didn’t have a zipper. The fabric is 95% modal, which is smooth and soft, more so than mercerized cotton and it is also 5% spandex. This dress has a built-in shelf-bra which provides support, but because it is not padded and does not have wires it is extremely comfortable.

I actually wore this dress to club 230 Fifth in Manhattan and on my way to there I received a few catcalls lol, which I think is a good sign ;). It was perfect because since the weather is getting colder the long sleeves where perfect and while at the club I danced for about two hours  and the dress was perfect because when I warmed up I just rolled the sleeves up a bit and I was back to normal. All in all it is a beautiful, elegant dress that is also comfortable and can be worn from day to night.
