Asymetric-polka-dot-top-from-leffetglamourHappy New Week lovelies, 

I hope you had a great weekend with your loved ones. Mother Nature has been bipolar with us these last days, but my crew and I managed to have a great time despite the gloomy and snowy days this weekend. This is a very quick chic outfit I put together for a friend’s daughter birthday party couple weeks ago. What I learned over the years is to always have an “emergency kits” in my purse or clutch on most occasions. You never know when you will be having a wardrobe malfunction from a broken zipper to a loose button or such. A little emergency kit with everything and what-not you believe a lady (and even the gents) will need always comes handy. Trust me. I, however, took my game top notch to another level by having either a second pair of shoes, extra pieces of jewelry on me or in the car, depending on the bag I’m carrying. If, by any chance, you notice that I have two different necklaces in these pictures, there’s a reason for that, and yes, I had a little accessorie/wardrobe malfunction… but polka dot makes everything perfect right? This asymmetrical polka dot top is a new favorite in my wardrobe! Get yours here!



As always, I appreciate you for stopping by! Wishing you an awesome day and week!

Happy Tuesday friends, 
The weather has been fairly nice in my corner of the hood; and while I’d ditched anything heavy and opted for layering, I’ve been thinking Spring a lot lately. Bright hues, sandals, floral, bikinis (Yeah… ) you know those kind of things that screams Spring? Well, here are a few of my favorites in today’s post. What do you think?




Happy Friday loves! 

It’s official! My new online clothing and accessories store is live! If you didn’t read my previous post here, be sure to check it out.  I shared a little bit about this long-time goal dear to my heart, and I wore in that post one of the many gorgeous dresses in our collections. I’m very appreciative for all the support, words of encouragements, positive and constructive feedback that I’ve been receiving since the announcement and launching of the store. It means a lot to me; and just so you know, you guys are the real MVPs!

L’effet Glamour is French of  “The Glamorous Effect”. My goal is to keep on with my vision of women wearing  elegant, beautiful, sophisticate, glamorous, and timeless pieces without breaking the bank. Our Philosophy is Affordable Luxury.

Even though this is a humble beginning, words can’t describe how grateful I am, just been able to live what I love. A little accomplishment, but an accomplishment nevertheless! Well, I know you know by now, how excited I am… 😀 but I’m also a little nervous. As for the beginning of anything we put our heart and soul in, we pray and hope for success, while we do the work involved. I believe in a great support system in anything we do; and I know I can get a great deal of support from you. So, this is me inviting you to pay me a visit over at! Just click on the “SHOP” button in the menu bar and it will direct you to the site. Our goal is to grow our inventory with more selections and collections, but I do hope you will see a few things that you will love in this first collection! Browse, shop 😉 , sign up to receive our newsletters to stay up to date and… Share the love with family and friends! I’ve learned in one of my business classes that the number one reason small businesses don’t succeed is because they don’t ask for the support they need or they simply don’t ask their customers to buy… so this is me asking you, my readers, for your support! 😉 Let’s all grow this experience together! Thank you! 


Love & Light, 


P.S: You will find all the pieces here in this post (and much more) at

Hello friends!

Can someone just stop the time!? I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record when I say time is flying by so fast, but wouldn’t you agree? Just like that, we’re ushering into March! Wow! However, I have to say that I’m quite excited about the journey ahead…

I have kept some things quiet here lately, but I think it’s time to reveal one of the things that was cooking, let’s say for about a couple of years now. Well, I’ve learned this the hard way, but I guess what they say about keeping your plans to yourself until they come to fruition has its own part of the truth. If you’ve been following me since I launched my blog, you’d see “Store Coming Soon” under Shop on my menu bar which implied that it has always been in my intent to open an online fashion store. Sharing #Ootds and lifestyle posts with you has been and still is my greatest pleasure, and like I always say, if I can inspire one person – just one person – in a certain way, my mission here is accomplished. However, I also want to allow you guys to shop fashionable yet affordable pieces, carefully selected and/or design by myself. Yes! There are big things in store for you guys. 🙂

To many of you who have continually inquired and supported me throughout the years and also to those of you who may have just been informed about this fondest desire of mine, I’m happy and blessed to announce that my online boutique L’Effet Glamour will be launching at the beginning of March! Yes in two days! How exciting is that! You can shop directly from my blog under the shop menu bar which will redirect you to the store website. And guess what… To celebrate our store launch, we are giving away this gorgeous embellished  black dress with high slit. Sexy, isn’t it? This is just a preview of our Spring dress collection; and you don’t want to miss out! There will be new updates and more collections.

To enter the giveaway, just head over our Facebook page here and follow the instructions! Also, follow us on Instagram for more updates, behind the scene moments and giveaways ! Last, but not least, visit our website and sign up to be notified when we go live and to receive new additions, promotions, sales and discounts updates!

If you love this dress on me, don’t forget to give me two thumps up by commenting below! Thank you for allowing me to share my journeys with you, fabulous people!

TGIF everyone!

Isn’t it interesting when they say not to judge a book by its cover, but inevitably it’s usually what we do. Human’s nature right?!

My husband and I were out for a pre-Valentines Day Dinner last weekend and while some others were asking about my outfit, I caught more than once the waitress’ eyes gliding down my fingers, and going back to my husband’s. The matter of the fact is, I didn’t have my rings on. I’m going to spare you the odd details, but anyone who knows my husband knows that he’d find a silly and funny way to make her dive even more in her imagination and assumption, but I totally lost it when on our way out, he said : “Thank you for an excellent service tonight… Here’s a $$ tip for not telling my wife that I was here tonight with another date, which, by the way, happens to be wife…” 😀 She instantly turned red and couldn’t say anything but “Thank you, sir.” LOL. Well, long story short, I think it’s just another reminder and motivation for me right there to work on losing those stubborn extra pounds and stop taking my rings off sometimes.

Back to the outfit of the day. – (I’m sorry, but I just had to tell you that story) 🙂 – I’ve owned this jumpsuit for years and I think last time I wore it was at a friend’s Birthday party a couple years ago. Don’t ask me why, but for some reasons unknown to myself, it was the only thing I wanted to wear that evening. I added my oversized silver shimmered duster for an elegant touch and to also keep warm. I “glammed-up” in all-silver for my accessories and shoes and added a touch of blue for a pop of color. 😉  I hope you like it… 


I appreciate you for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!

Love + Light,
