Photo Diary: Bacardi Triangle

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to attend the exclusive Bacardi Triangle in El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Yes, this event took place right in my backyard. It was 3 nights filled with some of the funnest and most amazing moments I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing. I can’t go without saying that this past Halloween was probably the best one to date. The whole vibe of the place was awesome, everyone seemed like they were enjoying themselves and having an amazing time! Saturday during the day we went to a pool party at the hotel and had a blast, dancing to music and playing in the pool with a giant volleyball. At  night I had the most fun at Palomino, a private island part of El Conquistador, where Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris played. I had never seen them live and they did NOT dissappoint! Since pictures are much better than words, I will leave you with some of this weekend!

This was my first time staying at Las Casitas Village, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, which is right next to El Conquistador, where all the fun and parties where at. Let me just say,  the views were stunning and the staff was amazing! They made our little getaway very special! I can’t wait to come back!

Enjoy the pictures!

” I just love the contrasting colors of the playsuit with the colorful streets and house-fronts of Old San Juan. They just go hand in hand. This playsuit is perfect for Petite girls, because well, it is made FOR petites by Topshop! I am obsessed over the bright colors and proportionate patterns and the cut out details of the piece. I am also wearing these fabulous cork heels and let me just point out, I hate white shoes. They remind me of nurses shoes and it is still a huge no for me. However, when I saw these , I had to try them on and I LOVE THEM and they are super comfy too! They perfect for daytime and for a casual night look! Needless to say, they are my new favorites!”

NYFW- Stella Nolasco

As a Puerto Rican, I am extremely proud of those who excel not only in my country but also of those who shine bright outside of my little island. During NYFW two of our biggest fashion stars showed the world what Puerto Rican fashion was all about: Stella Nolasco and Luis Antonio. During New York Fashion Week 2014 one designer really stood out: Stella Nolasco. Her collection titled The Saint of my Devotion, featured an array of textures and fabrics that captured the essence of spring and summer in Puerto Rico. As a Puerto Rican, born and raised in the island, I can testify to the fact that spring in Puerto Rico is all about bright colors, sheer fabrics and lace. Stella brought all these factors and combined them to create one beautiful collection. The show, produced by PR giant Kelly Cutrone from Peoples Revolution, went as seamless and flawless as one would expect! StellaNolascoSS2015-1535x580 The ready to wear pieces had me dreaming of clear sexy nights in Old San Juan, and the gowns were perfect in every way. Each piece hugged the model’s body in all the right places and I can only assume that it will be the same on the client’s body.As piece after piece came down the runway I was left wanting them all! The Lincoln Center was left screaming for more as where fashionistas all around the world. I will definitely love to visit her atelier soon to see this gorgeous pieces first hand! It was definitely my favorite collection of all and I am so proud that it was done by a Puerto Rican! Good Job Stella! The Striped Complex is proud of you! Here are a some of my favorite pieces of the collection and a video to show you just how beautiful it all came together! Enjoy! 10653648_700107046750733_3001365742505417736_n
