Fashion Dupes: 3 Shoes That Are Just as Gorgeous as the More Expensive Ones

Hi chicas,

Nothing makes me happier than shoes. With shoes, you don’ have to stress about your size – like, my size has remained the same since jr. high. Awesome, right?

Whether I’m rocking chunky block heels, sparkly sneakers or classic black flats, shoes put me in a great mood. I get so giddy when I add a new pair to my collection.

While I believe you should invest in shoes and purses, I don’t think all of your kicks need to be expensive.

Let me explain:

The way I see it, when you invest in closet staples like black flats or knee-high boots, they are more likely to last you a long time. It makes sense to spend more money on comfort, quality material for shoes that will go with pretty much anything for a few years.

However, when it comes to trendy items I think it’s better to buy less expensive shoes. Why? Because they’re more likely to go “out of style” within a couple of months (even though you should always wear whatever the hell you want whenever the hell you want).

So with that in mind, I want to share some of the cutest dupes I’ve purchased/am coveting.

Booties, Booties, Booties, Rocking Everywhere

Hi lovelies!

I found you, Ms. new booty! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Booties

Like the Nancy Sinatra song goes – these boots were made for walking and that’s just what they’ll do!

With Fall right around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect time to share all of the goodies I found online. I love buying trendy items before the prices go up, and right now is the best time to stock up on your favorite fall clothes and shoes! Whether you’re looking for classic black booties, or ankle boots that add a little edge and country sass, I have you covered. If you’re loving the items I have above, get yours before they’re gone. A few of these shoes are running low on stock.

Hi babes!

With everything happening in the world, I want to say that I hope you never stop being yourself. I don’t usually like to talk about personal feelings, or topics that are controversial on my blog. But I just can’t stay silent anymore, especially when there’s so much hatred and ignorance happening in our own backyard.

Fashion Fiesta

Don’t let the fear of others influence the way you see yourself. As a Latina, I know it can be hard sometimes to let your pride show. Some people just don’t understand, and they want to put you in a box. Don’t let them. Never stop embracing your culture, your individuality, and your talents.

This is a perfect time to share the love I have for my culture. Fashion is my way of expressing myself.

I hope you enjoy this post and are inspired by my style! xoxo

June Favorites

Hi dolls!

This is the first time I’ve ever done a “Favorites” post and it’s mostly because I don’t usually buy a ton of new products. I like to stick to what I know. I thought it would be fun to include a few items that I’m in love with and guess what….. most of them are super affordable! You can’t beat a great deal when things look adorable, right?

H&M Tassel Earrings

I’m wearing my favorite lipstick and earrings! I showed off my tassel earrings in this post.

I will note that I did receive the Josie Maran body oil and the Kopari coconut body glow in a gift bag from an event I attended! I don’t think I would’ve purchased those items on my own – mostly because I would’ve never thought to use body oils (but they work wonders!) and because I wouldn’t spend $45 on a body glitter. That’s just me. However, these items have become my go-to products and they’re perfect for summer! June Favorites

Katy Perry x Covergirl: Katy Kat Matte Lips – $7.99 (Magenta Minx)

Target: DV Ella Espedrilles – $23.99-29.99 (I found my pair in store. No longer available online)

Josie Maran Argan Oil: Journey to Provence 5 pc Set – Sold Out (I love using this on my hair as well! Here’s a similar product)

H&M: Tassel Earrings – $9.99 (I found my pair in store. No longer available online)

Selena Gomez Inspired Makeup Look

Hi dolls!

We all know that Selena Gomez is a babe. She can make sweat pants and a tee look dazzling. She isn’t the most followed person on Instagram for nothing! I hate to say this, but ever since she dumped Justin Bieber, I’ve started liking her a lot more. Now, this might be a coincidence because my last post was a makeup inspired look from Jojo Fletcher from The Bachelorette, and not only is she a Texas girl like me and Selena BUT she’s from Dallas. We all know Selena is from the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area (well, maybe most Texans do!). Maybe I’m just in  a weird mood where Texas gals are giving me major boss babe vibes!

Selena Gomez Inspired Makeup Look

Let’s get to the good stuff! I stumbled across one of Selena’s older Insta posts, and couldn’t help but fall in love with her makeup look. It was glamor meets effortless. Her sun-kissed glow and smokey eye really inspired me to recreate the beautiful look. I think it’s perfect for the summer time, and it’s especially great for a fun night out!

Selena Gomez

Because Selena is a tad bit more morenita (darker) than me, mama had to bronze it up! I can’t complain. I love a great bronzer in the Spring/Summer time. I tried something completely different with my eyes, and used very little eyeliner. I mostly lined my bottom lids with eyeshadow and mascara. I really wanted to let my cheekbones steal the show.

Give this post a “like” if enjoyed this look, babes! xoxo

Cinco De Mayo Inspired Fashion For Your Fiesta

Hi chicas!

I hope my Mexican embroidered dress inspires your fashion this Cinco De Mayo. I’m obsessed with this outfit!

I feel so special wearing this outfit because it represents my culture. I truly feel like I’m embracing my heritage. I think my abuelita Panchita would love this so much!

I hope this dress inspires your style this Cinco De Mayo! Grab your margarita and unleash your inner chingona this holiday. 😉
