O blazer xadrez é uma peça chic e super versátil para você ter no seu guarda-roupa. Uma peça que você pode usar muito, tanto agora no outono, como no inverno, fazendo dela a peça chave do seu look (como eu fiz no meu), ou usando por baixo de uma casaco mais grosso.

No meu look, eu adicionei um cinto para marcar minha cintura, e dar formato ao meu torço. Já deu um ar diferente ao look, você não achou?

Another Way to Style a Puffy Sleeves Dress

June 11, 2020

Styling Tip – Details that make the difference.

By Luci Fioritto

I really enjoy to be creative and reinvent pieces to give my personal touch to a look. Another way to style a puffy sleeves dress is by going one size up. This is a easy way to get more out of your wardrobe, and have room to reinvent a piece. You have to be aware of your body type and proportions for it to work, but when you find your way, you can create magic.
For this specific dress for example, I went one size up because of my bust area – it gave me more freedom and the option to style the cleavage/ shoulder areas different ways.
Here (on before) is how I got this dress, and then (on after) is how I’m wearing it.

This is the fun about fashion. Reinvent!
My dress is ASOS, but it’s sold out. You can find similar one here.

Um Outro Jeito de Dar Aquele Toque à Mais, a um Vestido com Mangas Bufantes

Dica de Estilo – Detalhes que fazem toda a diferença

Eu gosto de ser criativa e reinventar peças, para dar meu toque pessoal a um look. Um outro jeito de dar aquele toque à mais, a um vestido com mangas bufantes, é comprar/usar um número acima do seu. Esta é uma maneira fácil de aproveitar mais do seu guarda-roupa, e ter espaço para reinventar uma peça. Você precisa estar ciente do seu tipo de corpo e proporções para dar certo, mas quando você encontra o caminho, muita mágica acontece.

Para este vestido especificamente, por exemplo, eu fui com um número acima do meu, por causa da minha área do busto. Isso me deu mais liberdade, e ainda a opção de modelar as áreas do decote / ombro de maneiras diferentes.
Acima (no before) está como eu comprei este vestido, e no depois, como eu o reinventei o decote do ombro e o uso. Não parece um vestido totalmente diferente?

Isso que é o divertido na moda. Você sempre pode reinventar uma peça, e adequá-la ao seu estilo.

Quarantine Mini Stylist – I let Vivi Dress Me

April 28, 2020
Quarantining in style with my favorite mini stylist.

By Luci Fioritto

Sweats are not on the styling list of my mini stylist. Every day Vivi comes to me, and say “I want you to wear something fabulous today, and put on a lipstick!” 😳 haha. We are constantly playing dress up during this quarantine, and one of Vivi’s favorite things to do right now (with extra support of her little sister) is going into my wardrobe and pick me an outfit.
She picked this head to toe pink monochromatic look, and said: “here mom… wear it, because I’m fabulous” – while moving a curl out of her face 🤣🤣.

Not being bias, but this little girl has style. What do you think?

Dress by CeCe I got at Nordstrom a couple years ago. Similar here and here.

Fashion Finds During Quarantine Clean Up

April 14, 2020

Little treasures you find while you are cleaning your wardrobe during quarantine. Love this dress I wore for Easter!

I got this dress as an option for a pregnancy shoot when I was expecting my second child, and I never wore it! I bought a size up at the time because of the bump. Now it’s a bit loose, but after belting it up it fits perfect! I’m so glad I invested on something I could wear after.

I’m curious to hear what you have found during your cleanups.

Girls are wearing Little Me and HM. My dress is Forever 21, belt is from Mango.

Achados Fashion na Limpeza da Quarentena

Achados que você encontra no seu guarda-roupa, enquanto faz a limpa na quarentena. Adoro esse vestido que usei para a Páscoa! Eu comprei esse vestido como segunda opção, para o ensaio de quando eu estava grávida da minha segunda filha, e nunca usei!

Na época, comprei um número acima para servir por causa da barriga. Agora está um pouco largo na cintura, mas depois de colocar um cinto, o caimento ficou perfeito!

O que vocês acharam nas suas arrumações? Tenho certeza que muitos se identificam.

As meninas estão usando Little Me & HM. Meu vestido é Forever 21 e cinto é Mango.

Detroit Christmas Lights

December 5, 2019

By Luci

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Everywhere you go… – I love this song.

Christmas lights in downtown Detroit keep getting better year after year. We love watching Holidays lights with the girls, it is one of our traditions this time of the year. Last weekend we finally had a chance to check it out, closing our long Thanksgiving holiday weekend perfectly.

Campus Martius Christmas Tree

It was cloudy and it started raining unexpectedly on our way to the city, which it made us almost to change our plans, but since we’re halfway through and so in need of some fresh air, we decided to give it a try. We were also hungry, so we stopped at a place to get a bite, with the hopes the rain would stop. Best decision we made – the rain stopped, we had our bellies full and it wasn’t too cold. The streets were wet, but it wasn’t bad, it actually made it extra fun for the girls with all the puddles. 

Cadillac Square Christmas Market

Campus Maritus wasn’t crowded, so we stayed around that area. We had a chance to really look around and see the amazing job the city and sponsors did this year. 

Campus Martius

So many adorable spots and interactive installations with the cutest lights and backgrounds to take Holidays pictures in Detroit. Actually I think I’m starting a series of this to give you ideas to take yours. Here are my findings around Campus Martius. Check it out!

I can’t wait to go back and explore more! What’s your holiday tradition?

Luzes de Natal em Detroit – tire uma foto

By Luci

As luzes de Natal em Detroit ficam cada ano mais bonitas. Ver as luzes de Natal é tradição da nossa família nesta época do ano.
Fim de semana passado nós finalmente conseguimos ir conferir as luzes de Detroit, fechando com chave de ouro o nosso fim de semana prolongado do Thanksgiving.

O tempo estava fechado, e começou a chover no caminho, o que fez a gente quase desistir, mas resolvemos arriscar e ir assim mesmo, porque precisávamos tomar um ar. Estávamos com fome, então paramos em um lugar para comer, na esperança da chuva passar… Foi realmente o que aconteceu, a chuva deu uma trégua e conseguimos nos divertir. As ruas estavam bem molhadas, cheias de poças d’água, o que não foi problema, porque até adicionou uma diversão à mais para as meninas – elas adoram pular em poças! Como estavam com botas, deixei elas aproveitarem. Amaram!

Conseguimos explorar a área da Campus Martius. A cidade e os patrocinadores arrasaram este ano. A decoração está linda!

Campus Martius

Tem tantos lugares fofos e instalações interativas com as luzes de Natal de fundo os para tirar fotos de Natal em Detroit. Na verdade, acho que vou começar uma série de uns lugares legais tirar foto nesta época do ano. Aqui estão as minhas descobertas ao redor da Campus Martius. Confiram!

Transitioning into Fall Look

September 25, 2019

By Luci

Beginning of fall… i personally love this time of the year! Daylight doesn’t last as long anymore and temperatures start to drop, however the days are beautiful and staying out in the sun feels so incredibly comfortable. It’s time for transitioning outfits, where we basically have to wear 2 in 1 combinations, because of chilly mornings and warm afternoons. An opportunity to pair up a couple of spring/summer pieces with the new season’s fashion.

A couple of months ago I finally visited the beautiful Shinola hotel boutique in Detroit. The hotel is located in the city’s shopping district right on Woodward Ave. When you walk in it feels like you are in an art gallery because of all the incredible paintings, furniture, photography and books displayed in its living space. I felt like I was submerged in this mid century modern vibe that made my eyes shine! Oh, and let’s not forget about the great hospitality! I have to say this because the customer experience is everything to me: Every single hotel worker, from the valet guys to the front desk staff said good morning to me. They all had beautiful smiles on their faces, and they seemed happy to be there, which for me completed the vibe of this place.

“The Shinola Hotel Parker’s Alley”, that you see here in my pictures is named after Thomas Parker, one of the first black landowners in the city of Detroit. The alley “is lined with specially-curated shopping options”, which “offers a mix of global brands and homegrown businesses that celebrate Detroit’s entrepreneurial spirit” – https://www.shinolahotel.com/parkers-alley

My outfit is Zara and my shoes are from one of my favorite Brazilian brands Schutz.

When I first visited Michigan from São Paulo more than a decade ago, Detroit looked like a ghost town to me, and I didn’t quite understand how such a remarkably iconic American city was left like that, destitute and empty. Nowadays, seeing all the construction, the various projects, and the evolution that has taken place over the years is an amazing experience to watch. There is still a lot to be done, but it makes me so proud and happy. Go Detroit go!
