What's in my bag(s)?

Friday, September 28, 2012
So I woke up this morning to an e-mail from the marketing coordinator at Iconix Brand Group, which is the company that owns brands such as Material Girl and Badgley Mischka. I was asked to be a guest blogger and told to choose from different topics such as dress inspirations (from Madonna and Lola of course), Halloween, or DIY with an MG product. I however, chose to do a "what's in your bag" piece because I've personally have always liked it when other fashion bloggers write about their bags. I am not sure when it will be on the blog, but when it hits I will be sure to let you guys know about it! There is a sneak peek about it below!

Anyway, tonight was the event, and some really cool things happened there, but I'm saving that for the next post tomorrow!

Me levanté esta mañana a un e-mail de la coordinadora de mercadeo de Iconix Brand Group, que es la empresa propietaria de marcas como Material Girl y Badgley Mischka. Me pidieron que fuera un blogger invitada y me dieron de escoger entre diferentes temas, tales como fuentes de inspiración de vestir (de Madonna y Lola, por supuesto), Halloween, o que canciones me gustan en el momento. Yo escogi hacer el tema de "qué hay en tu bolsa" porque yo personalmente me gusta cuando otros bloggers de moda escriben sobre este tema. No estoy seguro de cuándo va a estar en el blog, pero cuando leste me asegurare de que ustedes saben acerca de ello!

Today my fiancé Alex & I decided to take a trip to IKEA, one of our favorite stores OF ALL TIME! (I've heard that you know you are "maturing" and apparently "getting old" when this happens..) We recently moved into our new apartment and wanted to spice things up a bit around here, so we knew we were about to splurge on some (a lot of!) goodies! Tomorrow is our other free day, but the Lulu's (info. down below!) fashion event is happening in downtown Phoenix, and since hardly anything uber-great happens that has to do with fashion in Arizona, I most definitely made it a priority to go! And of course, I am dragging Alex along too ;) I also start my quarter back up again on Monday and leave for Vegas for my bachelorette next Friday, so it is crucial to get our place done ASAP! I am such a neat freak and I can't stand such mess!

Hoy mi novio Alex y yo decidimos hacer un viaje a IKEA, una de nuestras tiendas favoritas en cual vende cosas del hogar (He oído que la gente esta "madurando" y aparentemente "envejeciendo", cuando sucede que preferimos ir de compras por muebles que cualquier otra cosa...) Recientemente nos mudamos a nuestro nuevo apartamento y quería decorar con un tema diferente por aquí, así que sabíamos que estabamos a punto de gastar el gran dineral al final del dia! Mañana es nuestro día libre tambien, pero hay un evento de moda que está sucediendo en el centro de Phoenix de parte de la tienda, y como casi nada grande sucede que se trata de la moda en Arizona, tengo que ir definitivamente! Y por supuesto, me llevare a Alex también ;) Ya también empiezo la escuela de nuevo el lunes y me voy a Las Vegas para mi despedida de soltera el próximo viernes, por lo que es crucial arreglar nuestro lugar hecho lo antes posible! Gracias por leer y si tienen INSTAGRAM, busquenme bajo el nombre "platformsforbreakfast" ! Besos! 

Outfit of the day/ Look del dia:

  • black spandex dress/vestido, Forever 21
  • plaid button-up/blusa de cuadros, Hollister
  • shoes/tenis, Converse All-Stars (which I've had since the 8th grade! Ahh!)
  • Rings/anillos, Nasty Gal & Forever 21 (and my engagement ring doesn't really count, haha/ y mi anillio de compromiso en realidad no cuenta!)
(Anyone and everyone in Phoenix should attend this event! It's free! Just register first!)
(Todas la fashionistas en Arizona tienen que asistir a este evento! Registrense primero!)

Alex (the fiancé) <3
Alex, mi prometido <3

This room is SO AMAZING! Ugh, love everythinggg about it!
Me encanto este cuarto! 

Hot dogs at IKEA! Yum!

Afterwards, we went for some ice cream & frozen yogurt (which wasn't that great, so it made me sad)
Despues, fuimos por nieve (que no me agrado tanto-me puse muy triste)

my semi-ombre hair needs a complete makeover soon! 
creo que ya es hora de pintarme el pelo otra vez muy pronto!

Sooo, I KNOW I have been beyond horrible in keeping up with this blog (formerly known as "Fashion Commotion", FYI); I've been super busy with school (what's new?) and I am also getting married in less than 2 months. Crazy indeed. Anyway, I graduate in March (YAY!) and I am crossing my fingers so that I can find a job immediately after. I need a vacation, and I need vacation money! Aside from this  small vent of mine, I have plentyyyy of new pictures so satisfy your eyes. Or not.
Let's just call them "Outfits of the past days"- or entitle them how you want. Either way, thanks for reading and I am actually motivated to keep up with this blog even more that I have a better camera (Canon Rebel t3i), and also because I am going to change this blog up to a more professional looking one, since I plan to use it to display a part of my senior portfolio show. Love you guys! xx

HUUUUGE thanks to Seventeen Mag for featuring me on their Instagram during NYFW! (New York Fashion Week)! 

Andddd this was me on the last day of school. Call it whatever, I call it "happy dancing"!
PS. Sorry for the low-quality on some of the images! They were taken from my Iphone! Actually, a lot of my photos are from my phone!
