Living Downtown

Written by , Posted in Fashion, Lifestyle

Hey guys,

Today I wanted to give you a little glimpse into my life. As some of you know, a few months back I made the decission to move downtown Los Angeles and in all honesty it has been quite the experience. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know my obession with big cities and old architecture so moving here was a no brainer. To most people in LA downtown is like the plague they want to avoid at all costs, but to me it’s still an undiscovered gem that’s going to be huge in a few years. Since I moved here I see new restaurants and unique street style shops opening up every week. Best part about living here, is having a ton of my friends live in the same building as me. Sophia came over one day and she loved it so much that she moved into my complex a week later. It’s just such an amazing feeling waking up and taking the elevator to your best friend’s place wearing pajamas. On our free time we love exploring downtown and finding new restaurants or just taking photos of the architecture. If you’re in LA or you come visit you HAVE to check out the Ace Hotel, Standard and Perch- 3 of my favorite spots with stunning rooftop views.

This outfit is a bit out of my comfort zone as you won’t see me rocking a maxi dress very often. I love pairing it with some thick heel booties, a spanish hat which I thrifted and of course a strappy crop top to avoid any weird bra straps. Comment below where you are reading from and what do you love about the city/neighborhood you live in?

New York:: Fluffy Parka & Holographic Hues

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hey everyone,

I was out in New York for the weekend working on a project during the Golden Globes and even though it was absoultely freezing I still felt the beautiful energy the city has to offer. How can you not love the colorful taxis, fluffy coats and rushing New Yorkers multitasking through the streets of Manhattan.
My good friend Sophia let me borrow this huge fluffy jacket she got in Korea and I couldnh’t be more grateful. That stuff KEPT ME WARM. I paired it with a holographic print sweatheart and of course my most-loved pairing: peaking collared shirt.

From Paris With Love

Written by , Posted in Travel

Hello everyone,

This is a very belated post from the beautiful city of love. I was lucky enough to take a trip to Paris a little while back and the beauty that I’ve seen is still so fresh in my mind. I could go on and write a beautiful sentimental letter to Paris, but pictures speank more than a thousand words. Enjoy Paris through my eyes and a little outfit post.

Visiting Paris it makes so much sense why people there fall in love, get lost on the streets and get inspired to create.

P.S. I am deeply saddened by the events that occured in Paris a couple of days ago. Sending all my love to you beautiful French unicorns!

Cobalt Trench & Denim Overload

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

First things first happy New Year to you beautiful people. A new year for me means a a new opportunity . I always take it as an oportunity to write down goals/resolutions and begin doing things a little bit better. One of the biggest things for me this year is to blog more. Most of you don’t know this, but I actually really enjoy writing, and even though I love Youtube- blooging with a cup of cofee sitting on my desk just brings me peace. If I write a blog post, then I feel like my day just gained a new meaning. Besides that I’ve been really motivated to work out every day. The easiest thing for me to maintain a good workout schedule, is to actually make a tailored workout schedule for the month ahead and stick it on my fridge. So far so good, Coachella body here we come! ^_^ What are some of your resolutions for 2015?

This winter break I went to the outlets in Palm Springs and to my amazement they had a Valentino and an Alexander McQueen store. I frantically started trying on shoes running around the store racing 30 other shoppers with a similar incendiary excitement. Luckily for me I was able to snag these McQueen suede wedges. I love the elegant platform silhoutte with with the metal toe caps. I feel like I found the perfect comfy going out shoes!

Thank you so much for reading!

Lord & Taylor NYC Meetup

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to create a special blog post to thank each and every one of you that came to my Lord & Taylor meet n greet last week. I was so humbled and honored that you decided to spend your Wednesday evening with me in NYC. Your love and support over the past 4+ years, and especially over the past few months, means so much to me and without you there by my side every day, I would not be able to do what I do.
14-11-19__MG_0102

The evening started out with some prep and pampering with the Lord & Taylor make up and hair stylists! They helped me get #partypretty in anticipation of your arrival. I picked out my dress earlier in the day after roaming the entire 5th avenue store. I decided on this BCBGMaxAzria dress because of the simple, classy, yet chic look the shimmer of the dress radiated. As soon as I saw it from across the store, I ran up to it and knew it was a dress match made in heaven (unicorns – you know what I am walking about!)
14-11-19__MG_0008

One of my favorite stations of the evening had to of been the NARS station. I loved using the products for my #partypretty video (check it out here if you haven’t seen it yet! It’s a great go to look for the holiday and even the new year!

Although the beauty stations were so much fun (and I hope you learned a cool new thing or two!), my absolute favorite part of the evening was meeting you beautiful unicorns. Being on the cover of the beauty book is such an honor, but the real honor is meeting you!
14-11-19__MG_0068

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for showing your support in person and online! Your comments and positive feedback are always welcomed and so thoughtful. If you guys try the #partypretty look or the look I’m creating that goes live on my channel on 12/2 for the holidays, please Tweet me selfies! I’d love to see your faces! I love you, my unicorns! Please also make sure to check out the holiday beauty book here http://34.gs/nci8 and make sure to have a safe and fun thanksgiving!

Hello everyone,

I was glad that you guys enjoyed reading about my project we shot in NYC together with the Garnier Color Styler team. In case you guys haven’t seen the video yet, definitely check it out below!

There is a really cool part of the campaign that I would love for you guys to participate in. Garnier Color Styler is giving you the chance to be their 72 hour spokesmodel and earn the title of the Funnest Girl in the world. All you have to do is give the hair color a try like I did and show us where you wore the look using the #funnestgirl. Find out more info Here.

On a side note to update you what I’ve been up to, I just got back from Hawaii and let me tell you…I’ve always seen postcards and photos of beautiful Hawaii sunsets and dreamed of the day when I’d be able to visit. This past week has been an absolute dream come true to just take a few days off, roll around in sand and enjoy beautiful Maui sunsets.

I know this is going to be the most First world problem you’re ever hear about, but quite frankly trying to buy something to wear on the beach in November is not an easy task. I was so excited to find this little lace dress. It’s a pretty versatile piece as it could go with shorts and a bralette, or you can dress is up and wear with a white slip underneath. I just let my hair kind of run wild for the week, but I definitely wish I put some blue streaks in it for fun. Next time:)

much love,

Evelina

Roller Derby & Pastel Highlights by Garnier

Written by , Posted in Lifestyle, Travel


Hello everyone,

A few weeks back I had the oportunity to work on probably one of the coolest project I’ve a chance to do since I started blogging. Garnier invited me to try Roller Derby with a professional team in Brooklyn and try out their new Color Styler Washout Color. You guys know how I feel about my unicorn hair, so I was more than excited to try out something that woudln’t be damaging to my hair and still achieve vibrant results. I loved how the hair turned out and it went perfectly with my crazy Hot Pink Roller Derby outfit. If you guys haven’t tried it, you definitely should, it’s a crazy leg workout!

Strappy Chiffon & Moschino

Ever since I had my Phillip Lim Pashli stolen out of hotel room in NYC (yes it sucked), I’ve been looking for that comfy every day purse that’s the perfect size and fits all my necessities. After weeks of deliberation and research I came across this textured leather Moschino cross-body. I’m in love with the simplicity of the design, it adds sophistication and edge to any look. The look is pretty simple: distressed boyfriend jeans with a relaxed stripy chiffon top and nude ankle-strap heels.
Thank you for reading and I hope you are all having a fantastic week!

Recreating The GUESS Campaign

Written by , Posted in Fashion


Hello everyone,

I love adventures and creative challenges, so when GUESS approached me and asked to recreate their famous All-American Nashville Campaign I instantly got excited.

With this look I wanted to recreate that sexy iconic look of the All-American girl. I paired an edgy panel skirt with a silk polka dot corset and topped it off with a cropped leather jacket to toughen up the look. I had so much fun running around downtown LA shooting at sunrise. Since I got an office loft downtown, I really noticed how my style has been changing and evolving. I feel rather inspired by the beautiful people in the fashion district running around with coffee and binders to Fashion Showrooms. GUESS in my opinion has always had those sexy key pieces that look good on the body and give you a power woman confidence. What are some of your favorite pieces from the GUESS Nashville Collection?
