A few weeks ago, Emil and I attended a beautiful engagement party of a very drear friend of ours. We've known her for years, were at the same party where she met her future fiancé, and go to see their relationship blossom into a life-long connection from the very beginning. So, it was very special for us to attend their engagement party and share in their happiness!

Dare to dream has been my motto from the very beginning... Those of you who've been following me since I started VivaLuxury almost 6 years ago, may already know that aside from creating a community for people who love fashion as much as I do, one of my greatest desires was to design jewelry. Today, one of my biggest dreams becomes a reality, and it is with great pleasure that I unveil my debut jewelry collection

I've been very fortunate to grow up with two amazing women in my family, my grandmother and my mother. Strong, independent, and above all incredibly intelligent, both of them served as a source of inspiration in every aspect of my life, and when time came to design my very first jewelry collection, I couldn't think of two people who could inspire me more.

I'll be the first to admit I didn't always appreciate downtown Los Angeles. In fact, for many years Emil and I completely ignored dtla and spent majority of our time hanging out in West Hollywood, Malibu and Venice. But about 2 years ago, our friends invited us to dinner at Ledlow ( one of our favorite downtown restaurants at this moment ) and after, took us on a mini tour of some of their favorite downtown spots. They took us to the coolest vintage stores, cute cafes and modern art galleries, which made us see downtown Los Angeles in a completely different light. From that point on, we started hanging out at downtown more and more and within a year, it's become one of our favorite spots to be in LA.

Special thank you to StriVectin for partnering with me on this post, all opinions expressed are my own. 
You know..., you spend way too much time on your phone, said my mom to me as we were sitting at Faith and Flower one Saturday morning waiting for our breakfast. After muttering a few clumsy excuses, like but it's work related and it's only gonna take me a minute, I started thinking about what she said and realized that mom was absolutely correct, as usual. I do spend a lot of time on my tech devices. After all, I do most of my work on my phone and laptop, I prefer to shop on line, and by definition, a perfect evening at home almost always involves watching a favorite show or two on Netflix.

The only thing that makes saying goodbye to summer a bit more tolerable is updating my fall wardrobe, and these Tibi burgundy beauties are my latest find! Aside from color of course, what really attracted me to these boots in the first place, is the thicker, sturdier heel, which definitely makes them very comfortable to wear. Another reason, is the fact that they pair so well with this season's cropped denim, which I've been wearing quite a bit lately ( recent sightings here & here )!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my updated off-duty uniform with you guys. Since the fall season is upon us and the temperatures in Los Angeles have been dropping, especially in the evening, denim cut offs are no longer an option for me :)  

As I browsed through more fall appropriate alternatives, I came across these awesome destroyed girlfriend jeans. I instantly fell in love with them, as I'm sure you can tell, since I've featured them here on my blog before during NYFW. The slightly loose fit is so comfortable, I find myself wearing these every chance I get.

During the first few days of NYFW the temperatures were in the 90s, and the humidity level was through the roof! I'm talking all you want to do is put on your bathing suit and take a dip in a nice cool pool kinda weather! But alas, it was fashion week and since wearing swimwear in the city din't seems appropriate, I was glad to have this adorable shirt dress with me. Super comfortable and lightweight, it was absolutely perfect for running around in all that New York City heat.
