Weekend Wear

J.Crew Weekend Wear Big ideas

When I am not at work or at a fancy event. You can find me any given day wearing weekend wear. Athleisure has become a part of my wardrobe and I have so many pairs of comfy leggings and joggers that fill up my drawers. So when I heard that J.Crew was debuting their newest collection and it was all about athleisure for every day use. My friends at J.Crew Lincoln Road contacted me to host a shopping party event with them, on Friday January 24th to show off the new collection. So I was in.

Perfect Silhouette

Miami Fashion illustrator Gissi JimenezI have been thinking on outfits and dresses to wear, during the holidays. With New Years Eve coming up in the next few days. I have been wanting to wear a dress that is more form fitting and body-con like. After working out and eating right for a whole year (11 months to be exact). It is time for me to show-off my skinny mini body. Part of that also included to create the perfect silhouette for a dress and I used shapewear for that. For me using control undergarments is not so much for showing a flat tummy or a tiny waist.  But more of when on, having that dress look just perfect.  This means to show a smooth finish and not have to deal with weird underwear lines.

A little Rock and a little roll

skirts with animal print

I wanted to put this outfit together for the longest time. I love these pull-on silky skirts with animal print. This one from J.Crew has a cheetah type print that when I saw it I just grabbed it immediately. I love how some other bloggers have been styling this with a rock band shirt. And how I basically collect Rock bands t-shirts of concerts that I go to, it was a no brainer. I debated if to wear this with pumps or sneakers, but I feel it works either way to dress it up or down.

Also, I wanted to invite you to my last event of the year (and decade for that matter, LOL). I will be at J.Crew at the Shops at Merrick Park live painting and customizing mugs. This Saturday December 21st from 2-4pm. Hope to see you there! See more details below.

Holiday Sparkle

Holiday Sparkle Illustration by Gissi Jimenez

It has been a little festive here at The Architect of Style and I have been all into a Holiday Sparkle mood. I already decorated my home and started putting together holiday outfits to wear to parties. One of them is this metallic gold skirt. When I saw it at the store, I knew I had to get it. This is a very statement piece, so I wore it with a cropped turtleneck top, strappy sandals and accessorize with a belt. I feel I will be wearing it with other tops also but will be wearing it plenty. Let me know what do you  think of this look, would you where a skirt like this one?

Also, I wanted to invite you to come and join me and the lovely staff of J.Crew Lincoln Road for a night styling this Saturday December 14th from 6-8pm. Let me give you tips to get the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your list, or getting you that perfect outfit for your next holiday party. See below for more info on the event.

Pleated minimal lines

Minimal Lines Rings Au-rate

I love the minimal approach to things and that reflects on my outfit choices also. From the accessories I wear, like dainty and minimal rings, to the dresses I get. Dresses like this pleated one from Ann Taylor with a Geometric pattern. I like clean lines, you may say, somewhat architectural. Hence the name of this blog and my main career. It’s all a way of expressing myself from head to toe.

It is time to continue with the shopping spring kick. This time is shopping with Ann Taylor. I went into the Coral Gables Ann Taylor at the Shops at Merrick Park a few days ago and picked up some really cute outfits with the help of their super nice team.
