Fashion Week month came to an end. I am sadly content to be back from Paris somewhat alive. My feet are swollen up, and my liver have come out of my body and bagged me to not even look into another glass of champagne. It was a great last 5 weeks. There was so much to see in and out of the runways. Before I start with my own trend reviews, here is another outfit I wore during the past month.
Now back to the couch; under the blankies, a big box of chocolate and Vudu’s movies choices on the screen. Fashion Week; I can’t wait for September, but I am so happy right now.

So here I am blabbing again about how well black everything makes me feel. Yesterday I placed a visit to my favorite store in LA, Des Kohan. A bit under pressure but willing; I tried on a pair printed pants and blouse from a new designer they just got in. _ Dusan, but I will talk about it later. Once again I took account of the already knew; I don’t do prints! Or loud colors, or floral, or lace … I left the store with a BLACK trench coat.
Once home, I placed my new purchase in the closet and took a look around. It’s all black. I got reminded with what Des, the store owner said _ “She is our all black girl!”
So I counted; 78 black pumps, 32 black cocktails dresses, 13 black blazers, 12 black trousers, … what a blassé!? What should I do with this addiction? But I have been so happy with all black for all this years! There are no colors out there that can replace black.
And this is what goes over my mind every time before I purchase one more black item. HELP!

It has been a long while since I did an outfit transition from rose wine to vodka red bull. From drunk to drunkerrrrr. “Work” to dinner. Casual to these heels fucking hurt. … I can keep going on and on and on, specially cause I am writing under the influence_essss!
The temperature over here or around where I am in these days _ not premature menopause; it is like a broken thermometer. With 10 to 15 degrees up and down within minutes, I am slowly leaping to spring. I am sending clues to the Gods I am so over this cold weather. It is helping!

I have to be honest, I am not into layering clothes. I don’t know how; too many layers make me lose the freedom to talk with my hands and, there are plenty of girls pulling the perfect bag lady look.
Twenty years of living in Brasil just required a jacket when was cold outside. I am much more sympathetic to the minimalistic look.
Couple weeks ago, it was colder than I ever had experienced before here in L.A.. So I put the effort, _ reminding myself NYFW is around the corner _ and actually surprised myself with a layering soiree. The attempt came better than my brain could’ve imagined; I didn’t look like an Olsen twin. I kept my identity; my personality was all over regardless of the five layers on its way.
Fur + Fur + Jumpsuit + Jacket! Have I made you proud?

“I am in a non stop pursuit to keep my style as simple as black and white. Le Smoking will make more appearances in my day and night wear. I want to go back to my roots. Slightly gothic, rock chic, erotic, immaculate, elegant, timeless.
I want to be surrounded by effortless but stylish pieces. I want lots of black; I want to get lost in black.
I will wear halter tops, harnesses, and bell bottoms; just like in my twenties. I want to make appearances in exaggerated female silhouettes, open backs and sheer drapery. I desire and demand the edge back, the sensuality and the glamour.”
Those were notes of my style revolution at one point; I think I like it. It all looks as I am going that way after all.
Now let me go develop Bulimia or Anorexia, go to the gym and shop to concur what I promised myself.

For the ones that don’t know. Before I started blogging I used to design for my own women’s contemporary line. It was called Dar-Ti, and it was founded in October 2009. Two months later I find out I was pregnant; it was a happy surprise. Luckily I never had a bad pregnancy day. Oops wait, expect when I fired everyone at once; Maid, Gardner, Decorator, assistant. _ Besides that, the outrageous presence of energy allowed me to work till the second the anesthesiology refused to let me take my phone to the operating room with me.
Dar-Ti’s first showing was Autumn/Winter 2010, in February 2010. I booked exceeding numbers with two major e-commerce companies and several boutiques. I did good, really good. My hard work had paid off, and I was thrilled. But as soon as I saw Maddi’s face, she overtook my heart, mind and soul. Dar-Ti was put aside just after its first season. I was sad, but content with the choice of truly living motherhood at its full. But once I got tired of poop, throw up, food stains, music class, gym class, mommy and me class, diapers.com, strollers; … I let the nanny finally assume her position, and found myself again. Back than, still to controlling to go back to work at Dar-Ti (I used to work at least 18 hours a day), I started the blog. It’s been a great year; I thank you for that. But I can say, I am finally ready to go back and do what I know best! That does not mean I am freeing you up of my bad English skills, this blog is a big part of me, and will permanence until I say so.

As we are all aware, running late it’s quintessence to whom I am. Not by choice; trust me! Even when I am not late, unconsciously, I do all it takes to be late. On this late perspective, I am here, a week and so into the New Year presenting you with the dress that marked a new and fresh beginning for me. As I like my dress and city destination to go according to the year I would like to have; there was no better match than this Esteban Cortazar outstanding dress and Punta del Este posh private parties. Oh, and the dress it is leather, and sexy, and white, and futuristic, and SOOOO ME!!!
Without looking back but working on a retrospective of 2012 outfits and behavior. I putted a list of resolutions for myself for 2013; I am going to share here to see if it can become even realer. Rule, I can only have the same number of resolutions as the number of the year. So, 13!
1. reduce the liquor intake by half, the clothes will eventually look better on
2. back to black and/or white, color it is not and will never be my thing
3. to every black shoe I buy, buy 2 other of different color
4. invest in other designers rather than Céline, Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Chalayan all the time
5. complex at construction but simple to the eyes outfits
6. the more leather the better
7. keep the same hair style for more than two months
8. stay within my budget
9. come up with a realistic budget, so I don’t need to worry of going over the budget
10. keep the drama to the ensemble
11. actually go to the gym and not just drive by it in work out gear
12. diet more days than just Mondays
And the last and most important one…
13. keep my opinions to myself. (Yeah right?! … at least TRY to keep most opinions to myself)

I bought this Stella McCartney Dress right after I had Maddi, two years ago. At the time, the reason for the purchase was a Bar-Mitzvah. It was perfect for hiding my extra weight (which apparently I still haven’t shifted!?) and, it was black. A few weeks ago I had a surprise charity event to attend, and wasn’t sure what I would be expected to wear, since all I could see relating to the dress code was the invitation’s title, “pink party”. What? Moi? In pink? I don’t think so… So I ran to my closet just to reassure myself that I in fact didn’t own any pink, in any way, shape or form! Of course, just as I expected, I didn’t! I am actually really starting to believe I am colorblind to all colors, besides black and white. Does that even make sense? While I was double checking that I definitely didn’t own anything in that vomit-inducing color, I came across this little slice of Stella heaven. And just like any great dress, it brought back memories of the last time I wore it. It was in Paris, about a year ago… I went to a dinner party, and on my way out my very posh, very hot friend offered to drive me back to my hotel as we weren’t staying very far from one another. Once I arrived in front of the hotel, said my goodbyes and thank you’s, and stepped out of the car… I heard a snapping sound followed by a sudden feeling of relief around my hips and legs. I kept walking faster and faster ’til the next mirror I came to, confirmed my suspicions. The split on the lower part of the dress ripped all the way up to the middle of my ass. To this day, I wonder what the man must have been thinking… I have this theory that he saw it, thought I was hitting on him, and got totally turned off by looking at my fat ass. It is sad, yet an absolute possibility. Rejection due to my current (last 2+ years) shape. This fat situation is killing me!
Getting back to the dress though, which is fine and well, ever since a visit to the tailor… It is crucial for all of us girls, (the word “girls” makes me feel skinnier) to always have a timeless dress in our closet. The proper attire for a dinner or cocktail party, bar-mitzvah, funeral, charity event, and of course, for showing off our assets… No matter how skinny, fat, or in-between we are.So here what I was wearing, or similar versions of it.
