My Gucci Experience

There's a feeling of pride when you are able to achieve a goal all on your own. For years now I have pined to one day own a luxury bag but I never rushed it. I knew that if I waited the opportunity would present itself. 

I have always been a prideful person and when I want something I want to achieve it myself. It means more to me. I told myself that I want to purchase my first luxury item. I didn't want anyone else to buy it for me except me. By purchasing the item, it would mean independence, strength, hard work and self satisfaction because at the end of the day no one can take that away from me. 
It came from me! I earned it and I achieved it. 

I was really nervous when I walked into the Gucci store to purchase the Dionysus bag. I read and watched reviews of individuals have a horrible experience at luxury stores. Sales associates being cold, not helpful and behaving pretentious towards the customers. In my mind I worked myself to assume that someone would treat me this way. 

Thankfully however, I was wrong. The woman that helped me was so friendly and when I told her that this was my first time purchasing a luxury bag she said thank you for choosing Gucci and went out of her way to make my experience comfortable. 

When I left the store I felt so happy and the experience to this day felt unreal. I don't come from much. My dad was the bread winner and worked hard for his 3 daughters to put us in Catholic school and he made sure that there was a roof over our head and food on the table. 

When I got home that night I felt differently and I left the purse in the shopping bag in my room for 2 days until we left to New York for fashion week. My behavior was strange and to this day I can't fully explain it but part of me felt unworthy to have such a luxury item in my home. I also started to feel insecurities and worried that I would come across as show offish with a Gucci bag. I guess my humbleness made me feel unsure of myself.

At  the end of the day I realized and told myself that I am still me. The Gucci bag is a beautiful piece of art that is glamorous and constructed impeccably but to me it means so much more. 

It has a story and I'm glad to be able to share it with you guys!

The harder you work for something,
the greater you'll feel when you achieve it.

LC Conrad Collection for Fall

I teamed up with Kohls to bring you a fall look from their new collection. This LCConrad collection lace floral blouse might not speak tradition fall but thats okay! I love that its different and I can wear floral and feminine details in the fall. This blouse can be both dressed up (like my look) or down with a pair of jeans and ankle boots.

How to Organize Makeup

My makeup storage is kind of a nightmare sometimes and needs constant tidying and organizing!
I like my makeup to be organized in a clean visible way and it helps me with my beauty routine.
Plus organizing your makeup is a great way to use your all my products because that toss and throw in the drawer method doesn't work. Your back of the drawer makeup end up being treated as the land of misfits toys!

I like the way my makeup looks in acrylic trays. Everything is visible, clean and looks nice. 
I make sure the items are spaced out and not one section is over packed.

I like to keep my main foundations in the trays as well as my most used makeup items. However often times I rotate items in my trays to make sure that I try new products or go back to some oldies but goodies. 

Below are some acrylic trays for you guys to browse!

How is your makeup organized? Let me know below.

New York Fashion Week Day 2: Lulus Style Studio Event

New York Fashion Week
September 9 2016
Day 2

Day 2 of Fashion Week was a sight seeing day for my fiance and I! Sorry that I am a day behind on my fashion week posts. NYFW is incredibly exhausting! Day 2 I didn't have any shows to attend just the Lulus event later on that night..

For breakfast we found the most delicious place for acai bowls called Liquiteria located at 170 2nd Ave. If you guys are ever in New York visit Liquiteria and try the vacation bowl. Amazing!!

For the past 2 years I have attended the Lulus event during NYFW and its so much fun and a nice time to see all my friends and meet new ones. This year they had a cotton candy machine and it was a hit with me because not only was it delicious but also organic! 

There were so many goodies and one of my favorites was a wand by NUME. I have never owned a NUME products so I was really excited!

I'm wearing:

Blazer Dress: Urban Outfitters  (affordable one) / Heels: Zara /
Choker: Asos (click here) /

At every Lulus event you are allowed to pick up one outfit from there second floor and this year I picked up a cute pair of fringe sweatpants that I can't wait to style!

Later on that night my friends and I went to Cafe Nuvo and had such a good time! 
Tomorrow I will share with you all my Day 3 fashion week post!

NYFW Recap: Day 1

New York Fashion Week

September 8 2016
Day 1

Hello everyone I have made it past day 1 of New York Fashion Week! However if you follow me on Instagram stories it didn't end that way.. I got really sick from dehydration and not eating but I learned my lesson!
I want to post each day of NYFW right away instead of one long instagram post a week late!
So I hope you guys enjoy and I am still a newbie to fashion week but Im getting the hang of it each year :) 

First Show

10:00 a.m.
Noon by Noor

The first show I attended was Noon by Noor and these photos were actually taken by my fiancé who got in the photographers pit! Way that was a crazy but cool experience for him.
At the show I actually meet two really cool girls and one was Youtuber Fleur de Force. 
Both girls were incredibly friendly and made the show more enjoyable to watch with great company!
The Noon by Noor collection was beautiful with stunning flow pieces and feminine details.

We quickly went back to the apartment to change because it was really hot! I changed into this Zara dress and finally got to wear my Gucci bag! I want to write a post about that later this week!
I missed the Michael Costello show but my dear friend Yesenia gave me tickets to attend the Desigual show!

It was my first time seeing that show and it was amazing! Great atmosphere filled with fun dance music and lighting. The collection was for the cool girls. Embroidered military jackets and lots of prints and embellished pieces strolled down the runway and I loved every piece. It was a strong collection for a bad ass chick! 
I was so excited to finally meet Kyrzayda! 
She was sweet but a cool chick with great style! Love her! 

That ladies and gents concludes day 1 of New York Fashion Week! It was a long and exhausting day and although I got sick I am still happy! Day 2 will be more laid back and we will sight see more the city and attend 1 event at night! Follow quick updates follow me on Instagram (@thestylebrunch) or Snapchat (amrod123).

The #EssentialUpgrade with Dove

* This is a sponsored campaign with Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and WeAllGrow Latina. *
* However my opinions are 100% honest and my own *

Whats your beauty routine before walking out the door to start your day? We all have a beauty routine right? Products that we can't leave the house without applying because they make us feel beautiful and confident. 

Dove conducted a survey with Latinas across the U.S. to better understand their beauty routine, and how these essentials impact their everyday life both physically and emotionally. Surprisingly, the survey revealed deodorant to be the one step they’d never want to skip in the morning and the product that made Latinas feel most confident! 
The survey also revealed that:

  • 80% of Latinas prioritize putting on deodorant over washing their hair and putting on mascara or lip gloss
  • 2 in 3 Latinas have experienced underarm irritation, uneven skin tone, dry skin or red marks

Forgetting their deodorant greatly impacts their confidence and made Latinas feel self-conscious and caused them to shy away from others.

Dove is revolutionizing its products by making them available in 15 fragrances and advanced their deodorant to offer 48 hours of odor and wetness production! Now in these last of summer and warm early fall days that is protection I want!

For more information on Dove products to achieve the #EssentialUpgrade check out their site:

This is a sponsored campaign written by me on behalf of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and WeAllGrow Latina. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
