Free People October 2011 Catalog

October 9, 2010

If you guys haven’t already seen it, the October 2010 Free People catalog is out! The end result is simply amazing. I photographed my sister Natalie Suarez for a section of the catalog and we both styled it together. Plus, one of our shots made the cover! I am so happy 🙂 Up above are a few of my favorite pictures from the catalog. Head over to a Free People store to pick a catalog up, or check it out online here. I hope you guys like it! There is even a knitted tunic in there named after me I came to find out, and it is definitely an autumn wardrobe essential!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! I plan on taking a hike tomorrow and know it’s going to be a beautiful day for it!

Sheer Darkness

October 7, 2010
Sheer Shirt Dress – DKNY, Purse – Jigsaw, Shoes – Via Spiga
I wore this outfit this past Sunday when I went to go watch the 2010 All That Skate LA show at The Staples Center. I grew up watching ice skating on TV, and it was such an amazing experience watching all my favorite ice skaters live and up close. So much fun! Michelle Kwan and recent Olympic gold medalist Yuna Kim from Korea were both there. Two graceful beauties. But my favorites were Johnny Weir and his tribute to Lady Gaga, as well as Swiss-man Stephane Lambiel who had the most personality on the ice as well as extremely good looks! My sister and I literally swooned when he came up close to the audience so we could all see his cute face. He totally stole the show.

Back to the outfit. Kept things simple and clean, which I have been doing a lot lately. All blacks, creams, and lots of sheer monochromatic fabrics for me at the moment. It must be all the gloomy, rainy weather we are having right now that is affecting my minimalistic choice in clothing. I picked up these black leather Via Spiga shoes on sale a few weeks ago at Bloomingdales and they fit right in with all the simple things that I am favoring so much. They are too comfortable for words and I never want to take them off. Double points for matching with everything in my closet. Thank goodness for chic flat shoes like these. A girl cannot live in heels 24/7 (even though I have my eye on two pairs of wedges that I just must have in my closet). I threw on a beige wool cardigan over this dress inside the show because it was pretty chilly (obviously, it was an ice show). Good thing I brought one along because by the time the show was over, the weather did a 360 and it felt like winter outside. But I am so happy that fall is finally here!


Inspiration For Your Thoughts

October 6, 2010
Inspire yourself with nature by keeping your head in the clouds / Make a tree your second home / Let your hair go wild / Wear roses in your hair in the shape of a crown / Lather yourself in layers and lose yourself in them for a day / Keep the dreams in your head intact with a black hat on your head
A cascading palette of browns / Knee high socks / An egg-shaped coat in a retro wallpaper print / Collars peeking out from under a sweater / Preppy loafer heels / A-line babydoll dresses / Double ankle straps / Stripes under my blazer / Dusty brown oxfords/ Wearing a heart on a chain
