When I saw the print of this fabric, I was instantly drawn to it. It reminded me of the city lights at night where I used to live. The dark and lonely sky lit up by the brilliance of bright colored lights and far in the background were mountains filled with beautiful greenery…

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’m kind of obsessed with skirts. I love them in all shapes, colors, prints and textures, usually the bolder the more interesting. In fact, I’d only name my humble little shop KTRcollection when the state wouldn’t let me register the name “I will forever make skirts and they will transform you into a sexilicious goddess that will stop traffic and have men throwing themselves at your feet day and night.” Ok, I’m just kidding, but what’s not to love about skirts? They are feminine, fun and best of all, versatile! :)

I hope you like this new piece. For more information on it, please visit my Shop KTRcollection tab or shoot me an email. Hope you’re having an awesome Monday so far!

Leopard print has always been fierce to me, no matter the season. With the right mix, leopard is as chic as wearing black and white and as timeless as the little black dress… but with a lot more spunk. For me , it’s not a trend, but it’s rather classic and every woman should own something leopard in her closet. One of my favorite things to mix leopard with are colors and yesterday the gorgeous blue sky inspired me to wear this electric blue knit sweater where the ends are actually tucked under my bra to create the crop look. :)

HAPPY weekend guys, it’s finally here and I am so excited for the holidays! I hope “Santa” brought you lots of wonderful gifts this year and by gifts I really mean good health, prosperity and lots of love!!

Happy Thursday lovebugs. It’s been so gloomy in Northern Cali lately that all I have been wearing for the last few days are black, black and more black. Yesterday, I managed to throw on my favorite-at-the-moment faux fur leopard vest which always add a little character to whatever I’m wearing. Despite having no sleeves, it keeps me pretty cozy! Hope you’re staying warm and dry!

P.S. I love these leather denim hybrid pants that I try to remix it as much as I could (here and here). Which look is your favorite?

About three things I am absolutely positive. First, over-sized sweaters are the comfiest. Second, it looks like this Nadri necklace has not left my neck. And third, no matter the season, mixing shades of pink & green always bring me back to my favorite time of year…spring.  Other variations of this below:


Well, it’s the eve of Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to start stuffing my face with all the yummy food tomorrow. We are volunteering the morning of Thanksgiving to help prepare and serve dinner to those who doesn’t have a place to go for Thanksgiving. Afterwards we are off to my mom’s for an early dinner followed by more yummy food at my bff’s home…if we are not passed by the end of the evening, we may check out a few stores. I always have the urge to shop at midnight so this is my once a year opportunity. :)

I hope you are enjoying a lovely day. Sometimes I take it for granted, but I’m so happy to be able to wake up everyday and do what I love. It’s nothing extravagant and my life is actually pretty boring, but I am grateful be around some of the most amazing people like my family and friends. Sometimes we take the simple things for granted, but cherish them every second because tomorrow is never promised…but you already know that! :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, be safe, don’t kill someone over a sale please and I hope to talk to you soon!

After my failed attempts to purchase this and this from the H&M x Maison Martin Margiela collection, I almost went for THIS, but (fortunately) someone talked me out of this duvet/sleeping bag/camping tent/Eskimo suit. Disappointed that I’ll be going home empty handed, until I came across this gorgeous sparkler of a sequin skirt which completely cheered me up and made me forget who MMM was. What can I say, I’m a sucker for things that sparkles.

Hope you’re Monday is going great so far! This is going to be a short week (so excited) and I’m looking forward to spending time with family on Thanksgiving day and eating all the delicious home cook food!
