Bohemian Vibes

Well my week started with a bang! I was in my first magazine feature! Style Watch Magazine contact me months ago for a piece they were writing about coordinating sets where they referenced the banana leaf print pant set I designed last summer (view here). I know its a little victory for most bloggers but it means so much to me! As you all may know I'm not very consistent as most style bloggers, mostly due to my work and personal life. So seeing the little blogging I do here and there get recognized is amazing! I originally took the bottom pic to send to friends and family. My immediate family begged me to send more pictures of my complete outfit so I decided to make it into a blog post! Enjoy!

Shrimp is Always A Good Idea

 I couldn't imagine someone loving shrimp as much as I do. To be honest the delicious crustacean was one of the reasons why I moved to New Orleans. So imagine my excitement when I found African wax fabric with  large shrimp all over it. With the few yards the seller had I managed to make a flyaway jacket, wrap skirt, and even a small throw pillow for my balcony.

Saturday Stroll

Lately my Saturdays have been  filled with uncompleted tasks, hulu, and wine. I mixed it up a bit this weekend and did some exploring in the french quarter.After a nice brunch (wine included) a couple friends and I took a stroll around the Quarter and managed to snap a few pics of my outfit.

In the Jungle


Its been a while since my last post, mainly because I haven't been dressing up much. These days I'm either at work or relaxing at my new place in some yoga pants. So when I finally found some time to go out I had to do it with a bang and of course it was captured.

Tropolicious with DVRA

If you have been following my blog and instagram for the past year then you already know how I'm deeply in love with the city of New Orleans. The Culture, the food, and especially the people! I've ran into some pretty talented people in the colorful city. One person that stuck out the most is my new nola friend Kathy Keppel of  DVRA   I stumbled across DVRA on instagram my first month in nola through ExodusGoods (another kickass shop you need to take a look at if you're ever in the N.O, but back to DVRA & Kathy. The moment I laid eyes on her fruit printed pouches I knew I had to acquire one of my own! I mean come on Accessories with food on it!? It just screams Amarachi!  So I hit up Kathy and asked if  I can get one custom made and BAM! My very own handmade XL pineapple and papaya pouch! Ain't life great!?

Staycation



Last weekend I had a chance to hit the only decent beach around new orleans with some coworkers. Bayou St. Louis is about an hour away from nola. The water was a little murky but the area was pretty cool.  Its a great place to relax and escape from the loud city of nola. 

I did not have much time to prepare for the trip so I just went to the closest Forever 21 and purchased these bottoms for around 18 bucks and paired them with a bra I got from Walmart years ago. Of course I had to make it my own with a custom wrap and jacket I made myself. I finised the look off with my gorgeous neckpiece from Llamia

Statement Piece

If you've noticed in most of my post I hardly wear any form of jewelry. I've always has a hard time finding  extravagent  statment pieces on a budget. Extravagent and budget dont usually go together but lately Ive been having some luck in the accessories department and its all thanks to Ebay. I had the chance to wear one of my Ebay finds this weekend for my baby sissy's graduation ceremony. She instructed us to wear  all white. I completed the look with two wide cuffs from Forever21.
