Cozy & Casual & Cute!

This was my outfit for today for school. I thought it was really cute and simple and I actually did get quite a few compliments throughout my day on it so why not share it with you guys? I think it's great to just throw on a cute graphic tee, try the current sweat-leggings trend, and some cute booties for color and have a great look. Add on the military-ish jacket, since it's starting to become breezy, and you are so ready to go and do whatever needs to be done that day. And as you can see, it definitely proves to be a flattering yet casual look. Did I say it was way comfortable, by the way? Those leggings especially are just so good. I'm planning on stocking up on a few more sweat-leggings and replacing my sweatpants with those because they are so much cuter but does not take away the comfort, and they can definitely be worn at home for chill time or out and about depending what you pair it up with! I hope this is a trend that stays for the permanent!

Oh, and by the way, all was affordable to the max, for those who are hawks when it comes to their money spending. The jacket was a gift so I'm not sure about that (I'm sure it was nothing extreme seeing as it was my mother who got it for me lol) but the shirt was about $9 (I'd never spend a lot on a simple graphic tee), the sweat-leggings were $12 (these were from Selena Gomez's new brand "Dream Out Loud," which I definitely think has some cute things, especially accessory-wise) and the boots were reduced from its original price to $45 (Good Choice Shoes). Not bad right? Totally not!!

Show me your comfy and casual looks! And if you hear of any new brands worth looking at, definitely share as well.

Love you all,

Little Luna

Celebrating My Birthday In Style!


So here are a few pictures from my birthday this past Friday, September 17th! Hooray! I turned 19 years old and had a blast with my friends! We went to Forever21 at first for a sudden trip, followed by Applebee's and lastly ended our night at a great club called Esco's or Escuelita (not too sure because I saw it referred to as both). I thought my friends looked pretty damn amazing to go along with me and that surely makes me happy! So I put up some pictures of them as well, just to show off their style and how it varies from person to person; just because we hang together doesn't mean we aren't our own person and don't have our individual way of representing it. We have everything from Bohemian to Urban to just casual but still looking good! As for me, I saw myself somewhere in between a 50's greaser and an 80's pop star? What do you think?

And I know this is probably the first time you all see me with makeup, which was done by my best friend Mimi G! I say she did an excellent job nailing a beautiful smoky eye look, and I just had to match my red pumps with my fave red lipstick (which I lost at the club!!! :[ ). Hopefully I'll be adding a few more looks including makeup done on my own, but be warned:  I am not that great at it, for I have tremendously shaky hands but practice makes perfect right?

All in all, I had a wonderful night of celebration! I ask that when your birthdays come, definitely get into an outfit that really accentuates YOUR look and rock the streets! Take some pics and definitely share it with me! I'd love to put some pics up of my fab readers, as they grow, in time!

Lots of Love to you all,

Little Luna

My 1st New York Fashion Week Experience/Why am I Little Luna?

So I got to enjoy a piece of New York Fashion Week for the first time EVER this year and the experience was AMAZING! I loved getting to enjoy a fashion show up close for the first time and being a part of the high fashion culture. I wish I could enjoy this every week. Hopefully in the future I'll get close enough to it. :)

In the meantime, here are my shots from the show, brought to you by EZRA, a little Filipino designer with a big view for next season. His inspiration was sought from the country of Africa. The beautiful music pulsated as the models walked down the runway and graced the audience with the following:

So where do we begin here?! There's so much to look at in this show alone! Well we can start with the minimalist color scheme of black, white and nude. I think this was great with the eccentric additions of accessories here. You can most obviously see the sparkles from the gems and pearls and glitter which means that this seasons jewel tone dresses will transition to actual jewels next season, according to Ezra. Big shoulders seem to make a comeback for this show so could it signify a comeback next season? I loved the extravagance of the gowns, dresses, and pants so it seems like next season there will be a more lavish spring from the previous one. Lace, satin, tulle, and feathers persist so it seems that they'll be here to stay, and I surely won't be complaining there! Feminine silhouettes were dominant and I loved it! Also something that I saw that was new was the shredded detailing on some of the dresses so I get the feeling that's something to look for in the future. Besides the crazy up-dos though, any other possibilities you see for next season? What do you think is coming from this show for next season? Let me know and if you've seen any other trends from other fashion shows, DO TELL ME!! I'd love to know!

Now these were some of the displays from other designers there for this week:

I loved this! Simply put! And I think you can note some similarities here, such as the feathers and satin looks, but obviously you can also note some more color here as well, so it won't be completely black and white spring. Yay!!

Now a little story behind my name on here: Little Luna! As I was leaving and got into an elevator, another fabulously dressed gal along with her male accomplice got on as well. I was minding my own business and she suddenly asked me "Excuse me, but are you a fahionista?" I was a little taken aback by the question because it was surely the first time someone had considered me as such directly and responded, "No, not really." They then proceeded to compliment my outfit, especially my hat, and give me a flyer to her blog, which I'll put for those interested. But the reason for my response? I only really got immersed into fashion about a little over a year ago. I've surely learned a lot and done my best to pick up on everything as the fashion world continues to grow but I'm still not at the level where I can tell you of the history nor know designers by looking at their masterpieces, but as time goes on, I hope I can be that knowledgeable. Thus why I call myself Little Luna: Luna being my nickname, and Little due to my youth in this world (as well as my height lol). My boyfriend actually gave me the nickname Lunita even before we were together, which is Little Moon in Spanish, and I've always loved it so I thought it was a great name on here. Thus the title of my blog! And just so you know, this is what I wore out that day. It wasn't anything too extravagant compared to what many other were wearing but that's due to a birthday event I had to attend afterwards so I didn't want to be too overdressed for that as well. Regardless, it still showed me and what I know and earned me a pretty awesome compliment so no complaints here!

I know, I'm silly aren't I? I love to live outside this world, another reason for the nickname. But I think that's enough for tonight. This is a really meaty post! Hope you all enjoy some aspect of it. And do leave comments, they are always welcome! And if you're interested, check out to check out socialite Savannah Britt, whom I met in that elevator! 

Hasta luego Loves!
