I’m living on such sweet nothing

30 Mar

If the rest of the year is as amazing as the month of March was I’m going to have the best year of my life! Firstly, March 1-3 I attended a Jivamukti Yoga retreat in Upstate New York. It was peaceful, enlightening and I saw the light and decided to become a vegetarian and any excess weight I was holding melted right off. As a result of changing my diet I felt better, lighter and my skin looks great. If  your ever in New York, check out JIVAMUKTI in Union Square and take every class given by Jules Febre and Narayani. They are the best and bringing out the best in you! I wish I could retreat every month.

That was a fantastic start to the month. One of my closest friends Ava Lee Scott is an actor in the celebrated play Sleep No More

UnknownShe decided to join forces with GIRL BE HEARD(http://girlbeheard.org) which is an organization that helps girls that have been sex trafficked and have been abused by giving them a voice in their theater company. The beautiful girls from GIRL BE HEARD performed songs, monologues and mini plays in the Sleep No More Space. I was lucky enough to be a sponsor and make the girls Lila Juliet headbands.

If you follow my blog you know I LOVE vintage everything.  I’ve been buying vintage in order to sell it on http://www.lilajuliet.etsy.com but I’ve been procrastinating.  But not this month! My sweet, beautiful friend Sam offered to model for me and my friend Sima did her make up. If you’re in the New York area and you need your makeup done contact her

This was the beautiful result

**Everything Blake Lively wears is perfect and I want to steal all of her clothes****

19 Jan

My cousin Saray is getting married on November second of this year which is also my birthday! I couldn’t be happier for her. My daughter is going to be a bridesmaid. She is a very excited 11 year old and she’ll be 12 by the wedding. Anyway, I want a very gorgeous, glamorous dress for this occasion.  I want a find the perfect dress and have my grandmother Alba who is a professional seamstress to make it for me.  I found some that I loved worn by Blake Lively.

So as of now these two dresses are the top contenders for my cousins wedding.  I love them, but I tend to love anything this girl wears.

I would wear this to an office all the time.  I love this look and its relatively simple. You don’t have to dress it up exactly this way.  You can make it more casual in order to suit your normal everyday life.

If I owned this blazer, I think I might wear it everyday.

Okay, so for now Im pretty much done with my rant about Blake Lively’s perfect wardrobe.  I will be sure to keep you updated on my new line of Lila Juliet headbands.  I’m working on them!

Have a Sweet night,

Michelle

If Katy Perry’s fashion in Last Friday Night married Mad Men Style

21 Sep

Just because this is the mood I’m in-

So, I bought this great Theory dress from Buffalo Exchange in California about a year and half ago and I never wore it. I knew it was a great dress and I had all intentions of wearing it but I kept thinking, “I need to lose about 5-8 lbs so this can look like I CAN wear it.

I moved back to New York about 7 months ago and I still didnt wear it.  But I was surfing the net and I stumbled onto Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks.  I saw her pictures and shes totally full figured and absolutely stunning.

Mad Men's Christina Hendricks

I thought to myself this lady looks awesome in this form fitting clothes and she was voted SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE by Esquire Magazine.  So, I thought “The hell with it, Im wearing my dress, even if I should be smaller to wear it.”

Sexiest woman alive

I was actually happy I wore it and I got a lot of compliments.

I cant believe I waited so long to wear this. I think sometimes as women we are hard on ourselves about how we look, how other people perceive us and its just crazy. After I looked at my picture I thought to myself “Why did I care so much, I look fine.”

I kind of think this dress is a cross between Mad Men fashion with its form fitting fabric and Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” music video because of the neon green.

In case you want to know you can get fabulous cheaper name brand dresses and outfits at Buffalo Exchange, its an awesome thrift shop. They just opened one up in Chelsea on West 26street between 6 avenue and 7th Avenue. My dress was about $30.00 in San Francisco.

My point is have fun with fashion damn it! Who cares if you have a few pounds to lose.  Just be tasteful and have a great time. Even if I weighed 100lbs (which I don’t) my butt would still be huge. When I was younger and everytime I gain weight I tie a sweater around my waist so guys wouldn’t look at my butt. But there comes a point in life when you have to accept yourself. If your unhappy with your weight work on getting healthy but look fabulous in the meantime. If a Hollywood starlet can show her full figured bootie to the world and be the sexiest woman alive, so can you. Every girl has her own kind of sexy.

Thats all for now. I’ll post again tommorrow.

Good night!

How far can you push yourself, can You Handle the 40 Day Workout commitment?

27 Apr

Since I moved from NY to California I havent really made any besties here, so I still love and depend on my bf Jennifer C. I usually call her 4 times a week 9-10 am Pacific time. I will usually hear her adorable little son Kingston babbling and running around in the background. When I call it’s usually to release and to tell her about something I’m unhappy about and she usually smacks me with some grounded advice.  I’m kind of depressed right now because my “Normal, feel good weight is 115 lbs.” I’m 5 feet tall. I’ve been 115 for about 2 years. But I don’t know what happened or where I went wrong but I’m now 123 lbs.  I’ve lost my motivation. I don’t fit into any of my pants except strechies. I HATE THIS SO MUCH.

I need Jillian Michael’s from the Biggest Loser to yell at me daily.

I’ve always had concern about my weight, I’ve never felt right about it. When I called Jenifer this morning she said to me “Why don’t you commit to working out about 30 minutes a day, whether it be a video, walking or yoga.” She said “That when she commits to something for 40 days and she follows through the feeling is great.  We decided to take charge of our health, attitudes and bodies for the next 40 days. We will be keeping each other motivated daily.

Jennifer is a married mother of 3 children and a makeup artist and as you can imagine she barely has a minute to herself.  Heres her facebook page titled the Life and Times of Jenn where she dishes about life.

But this is my point, we all need to give ourselves a little time to ourselves.

Just today I went to drop off a resume at a yoga studio in Berkley and the front desk girl said I’m able to have one month of free classes. There are lots of yoga studios that will give you one or two-week  introductory classes on the cheap. Also, I usually HATE TV or DVD workouts but I found one I like. You can watch it free on hulu. They last 35 minutes. I just did the butt one and I did sweat. I recommend it if you cant get out to a gym.

I’m also watching my calorie intake. I had a pretty filling 3 egg white, spinach and jalapeno omelet that came out to 160 calories. SWEET !

The challenge will be done by June 5. If anyone out there wants to join in on it. Please do so, leave a comment on your weight and your target within 40 days. Be reasonable. I plan to be back to 115 by the end of the challenge. I need 8 llbs off of me. If the gang on the Biggest Loser can do it, so can you!

Go Team Koli/Sam!

Commit to yourself! Workout, eat better and take responsibility for your life.  Take it day by day! This is going to be awesome. I cant wait to see the results.

XOXO,

Michelle

Blairs shoes,Serenas Dress and Jennys Hair..Oh how Ive missed you Gossip Girl! season 3

17 Sep

So The Premier of Gossip Girl was on Monday, September 14. I haven’t seen it yet. I’ll catch it tonight on the CW. But I did check out some of the pics and as always they did a fabulous job in the fashion department. I personally like each girls style but I change my mood and style often. I’d suffocate dressing preppy like Blair all the time and I dont agree with all of Serenas choices. hmm, maybe because shes a tall slender blond girl and Im 5 feet tall, so obviously  we would look totally different in the same dress. But I pulled some pics I really like.

Check out Blairs gorgeous shoes in this one

Blairs shoes! to die for

Jennys hair has grown a little longer and I love the contrast of her porcelin skin matched with this deep red lipstick.

jenny You have to love how Serena makes anything look good. I really like this black dress that can double as a shirt.

The dress! The shoes! So perfect

The dress! The shoes! So perfect

I’m kind of excited that I havent seen this episode yet. I’m looking foward to it.

Thanks for looking and I’ll be bargain hunting for similar looks.

LOVE,

GUESS: Women: Tops

This sexy top is about $30 dollars. I would wear this to club or a lounge paired with jeans and 4 inch heels. I love anything backless and this is my wish list. (via Backless Top from Guess)
