iMéxico Lindo y Querido!

While Cinco De Mayo is nothing special to most “real” Mexicans, us hybrids living here in the US of A have come to celebrate it with our favorite cervezas and tequilas over some Lotería games with friends.  Hey, we still put those Frenchies in their place, so why not drink up, right? ;) As a good Angelino, I made my way through the fine Cinco De Mayo celebrations, that fell conveniently on a Saturday, in Downtown LA, including Plaza Olvera, along with all the fine tequila bar establishments celebrating the occasion.  In my fun bar hopping, I was taken back by these adorable maryjane peeptoe wedges from across a crowded bar.  As I approached the gorgeous lady, drawn intently by these shoes, I failed to realize she was actually an acquaintance.  Birds of a feather, go figure! ;)  So of course, she let me get the details of her festive wedges.

They are from a label called Andrea shoes, and fittingly, a Mexican shoe company.  *swoon*  These are not for those with a  fear of height as they are 5 ¼” high with a 1 ¾” platform.  It’s like they know I have a weakness for skyscraper heels, right?  The most obvious thing about these wedges is their endearing print.  It resembles the traditional “gavan,” or Mexican blanket, print.  The ankle strap maryjane sweetness is counterbalanced with a sexy peep toe to make it freshly modern, and utterly irresistible!    

The fact that these are only $62.10 let’s you celebrate your ethnic adoration of Mexican culture all year round.

Lucky FABB West Coast Style

The fashionistas of the West Coast have been finally pampered Lucky FABB style in having been able to attend the first Lucky FABB held in Los Angeles.  Bloggers from up and down the coast gathered in their most fiercest fashions to hear an amazing line up of speakers and get oodles of goodies.  In a stroke of my own luck, I was able to play the role of a Lucky staffer and help coordinate the behind the scenes.  I was in the equivalent of the AV booth helping coordinate the visual presentations and the sound.  While the majority of the day went smoothly logistically, we had some sound issues that we had to work out.  All in all, I was so incredibly fortunate to get to know the incredible ladies of Lucky that have made it my most favorite magazine ever.  I got lots of great pictures from my day’s in’s and out’s.  There were stars left and right and great media coverage of the wonderful day’s run, including the L.A. Times.  I was sad to have missed to meet all the great tweeting ladies like those from Crossroads Trading Company.  Alas, we will be cyberly in love until we meet in person soon, I hope!

Enjoy my sweets!
