This is from a couple of months back, but I was quickly reminded why I loved this pic.. and well it is the shoes! RED! I didn’t remember or realize the power of the RED shoe, but honestly they make you feel instantly sexy and well as cliche as it might sound POWERFUL, to do what though I am not truly sure!? Maybe give your man that come hither look? or maybe take on the WORLD? 🙂 I have a couple of things that make me feel strong and powerful and one is a button down blouse? not sure why it just does! Don’t know if I should try and figure it out or just let it be, either way What makes you feel STRONG & POWERFUL? would love to know.
The shoes are no longer available in case your wondering, they are from STEVE MADDEN and called lypstick. They have a beautiful Red shoe available called DEJAVUE, LINK HERE DEVAJUE PUMPS
I have been debating a lot lately on returning to school. I completed my associates over a year and a half ago and in a lot of ways it has gotten me no where. I blame it only choice of degree, little did I know there is such a lack of demand for jobs in fashion marketing, but hey we live and learn. Not to say I didn’t enjoy going to school for what I chose and hey who knows it may help me down the road. But at this point it has yet to bare fruit. I am thinking about going back to school for nursing, but I haven’t yet bitten the bullet so to speak, I’m going to get there I’m sure, however I have always been like this.. I have the need to stew over things a bit! I realize I should pull it off like a bandaid and just get started however Silvas like to procrastinate either way I’m now a Lucas, (marriage) and the Lucas family does not procrastinate! Ultimately it’s all in taking the first step! So let’s just do it right?! What are you waiting on today?
Ignore the HARD STARE! HAHA Was trying to be serious here!

Just a quick post, all the outfit details above. Not a whole lot to post right now, or not much new. Well I did
just start a new job! which I am excited about, not in fashion 😦 but for now I will settle for a job that pays my bills!
The top is new from topshop.. I love there tops!! all of them and I am just a little obsessed right now! yikes!! the only I don’t like from their itty bitty tops
is the too high prices for half a shirt >:/ but… I get over it! This particular top is a little short for my taste.. I ended up wearing a higher waist pant in the end
sorry no pics.. However if your okay with exposing a little belly then go for it. Oh by the way in case you need to know size reference, I am 5″2 and 1/2 🙂 and my torso is short and last but not least I bough a large.
On to the jeans.. these are wonderful and stretchy.. the thing great about their leggings is they don’t lose their shape, which is typically what us girls are looking for in a jean, am I right? couldn’t find these exact ones available but I posted some similar ones with link, just click on pic! The purse I wore, sorry not shown is black american apparel clutch that I have used before, see previous posts.

Hi, I’m Melanie Cortez! I am a freelance photographer and full-time college student based in Mesquite, TX. I was mentored by Dallas Morning News staff photographers in 2008. I have recently received my Associates in Arts with an Emphasis in Photography. I have photographed commercial work for local businesses. For the past couple of years, I have been a contributor for NeighborsGo, the community news operation of The Dallas Morning News. I am actively involved in my community. Throughout the school year, I speak to local high school journalism/photography students about art and photography. I admire every detail in photography! I love to capture memories for others to cherish on paper. I absolutely adore the thought of producing photographs for clients knowing the photographs will become part of their family history’s keepsake for future generations to come.

Hello lovlies, I am sorry for lack of posts! honestly with the holidays and everything else I just haven’t been as motivated. I don’t know if it is the time of year or what? just not feeling myself this holiday season. The blouse I have on I got months ago and just haven’t had the chance to wear it. The look might be for a little warmer weather but hey here in TEXAS its doable! Hope you guys like the look.
I also just joined the instagram family if you want to follow me you can find me under slucas1
These are my top 5 picks of the week, they will mainly be fashion but not always and will be anything that I like or inspires me.
1.Pin Board is a virtual pinboard that let’s you organize things you love. I accidently came across it and since then have been back on every day looking for inspirational motivation and uplifting words. You have to send a request to be invited but after you do you can organize almost anything from food, fashion or inspirational words. You can always just search for what your looking for and browse without signing up.
2. Etsy.com, is a online shop that lets you buy or sell basically or almost anything handmade such as clothing and crafts. I love this website, they have so many unique one of a kind items that you will most likely not see any where else.
3.Heels.com is a online shoe retailer, that sells obviously heels, they carry a variety of brands but what I love about them is that they have a video of every shoe being worn/displayed with video. This can help you decide if you really want them since you can see what they look on feet.
4.BodyRock.tv this may not be new to many people but for those of you who haven’t heard of their online movement for at home fitness, I find it inspirational (just alone that they are superbly in shape) but they also seem to genuinley love what they do. I have tried their workouts and they are challenging but none the less are note worthy and work!
5. John Lennon’s song IMAGINE (What a wonderful concept) lately his works and message to the World has truly inspired me to not only educate myself but also to do more in this World and to live my life without boundries.
I adore and love old Hollywood and I have spent countless hours watching moves from that time era (Time Warner Classics is on my favorites) and wishing that I had lived during those days. Everything seemed innocent and less sinister than in today’s world. For me it takes me back into a time when life was different and almost dream like, now I know for the realist’s out there they would say come back to reality and that I am only fooling myself into believing that times were different and would most likely say that in reality those times came with hurts,losses and disasters as does the present. For those people I say pewee haha, really I know every era has hard times but I still love to dream and go back in time where things were less evil then they are now. So for now I will just keep dreaming and keep believing that those times were really magical.
I was so excited to see Ralph Laurens Collection the whole collection was so whimsical and dreamy. With beautiful hats, soft and creamy pastels and chiffon and satin galore.
Everything was very detailed and over the top but still managed to all come together. I don’t mind being comfy and love some jeans and a tee but I still wish we dressed more like this now. Hope you guys like!

Spring is on the verge of arriving and while Fall is my favorite season, I must say I am extremely excited for Spring 2012 trends to arrive. From a range of beautiful colors, bold patterns and feminine details you will be as excited as me to see whats in store. I loved so many of the designers lines however if I had to choose my favorite it would be Givenchy, I loved the manipulation and use of fabrics with some of the designs but on the other hand they also managed a sleekness, simplicity and femininity in their tailoring. Hope you guys enjoy as I did!
