Lately and three periods ...

Been a few days since I don't post a decent post...or better said a few weeks maybe a month. My internship with the Super Cute or "Kawaii" (as my former boss and the other fellow interns would say because they are Japanese) flip flop company Sand by Saya came to an end although I kinda left the door open and told them that I would still be around if they need any help in the upcoming months. This was a super great experience because basically it was my first internship.

And now to the next thing... this last week was Orientation Week at FIT and I as a Student Ambassador had to work it. I always enjoy working orientation week and in a way I really don't care if i get paid or not cause the truth is that it is really fun plus all the freshmen are so cute cause they are kinda lost and really don't know how things work etc. Another thing is that there was a lot of free food and fun giveaways this week, which I kinda took advantage of. I also got to meet a lot of people and thats is one of the advantages of being a student ambassador. Period.

School starts next Monday bright an early. The BFA is starting and that is kinda scary to say. My diploma from my AAS is not here yet due to that last class I had to take over the summer, so I feel like I still haven't graduated, hopefully it will get here soon. I also heard we are getting new classrooms which is bittersweet cause i'm going to miss the old classrooms and all the fun times, but what the heck..Cheers to New Beginnings! Period.

Is US Open season and I didn't get a chance to get tickets this year. It has kinda been on my goals list this year to see Nadal, which I kinda did this week at the Nike Primetime Event but it was just a glimpse and it didn't satisfy me in full. I need some more of Nadal. Period.

The guy was in the way. Shoot! Oh well, next time ill get a better view.

Pizzetta para Lunch

Lunch today.


Found: Harem

So according to Wikipedia Harem refers to the sphere of women in a usually polygynous household and their quarters which is enclosed and forbidden to men. Painting or illustrations that have harem women have caught my eye lately and this what I have found and collected in the past few days.

Trouillebert, The Harem Servant

Ingres, La Grande Odalisque
(and this one too)

Generation Y

While Doing some research this morning I came face to face with Generation Y, my generation. Its so weird because I was just asking myself this about 3 days ago. What generation am I from? How do experts label us?

So basically if you were born bet 1977 and 1994 you are part of Gen Y also called "the echo boomers" and by 2018 we will be half of the working society. We have become the largest consumer group in the U.S. We have the power of the Internet, which basically has been our friend ever since we discovered it. Using this powerful tool we have become young entrepreneur starting businesses at a faster rate than all those late 30's and 40 year olds.
We are aware of this world environment which influences big corporations, brands and older generations.

We are the Echo Boomers. We are not fully matured yet, but we are reshaping businesses and possibly the world.

io ritorno

Ciao a tutti!

Finally I sit down and decide to write a lil bit on this blog, which has been on hold for the past 3 months. A lot of things have been going since March 22. Classes got too demanding especially portfolio class. Which for me was one of those that was pretty challenging
with all nighters and the idea of trying to wow that killer Prof, but everything turn out Fabuloso and I got A! Yup and A....So all of those sleepless nights and tears were so worth it. Another thing was that on May 25 was my AAS graduation at Radio City. My grandparents who haven't really been to NYC in about 50 years came from P.R. They were really comforting and we tried to take them to all the places they wanted to see. After that we spent a couple of days down in NC at my parents. Now that summer started and I'm taking a summer speech class which has been pretty intense.
Another thing is that I got an internship with a cute flip flop company called Sand By Saya. Its been a month since I started and its been a great experience and exposure to the industry even though it is a small company. But I like the idea of a small company because we pretty much do everything our selves and we don't have one defined thing to do. Plus everybody is pretty sweet.
Check out the Site @

Oh did I tell you a turned 20!? yes that's another thing. I'm 20 now. Wow!!! that's pretty scary. My birthday was on June 23 and my boss got me a cute cake. I also had a little picnic with my FIT people, which turned out into a rooftop party down in the financial district. It was fun. Really!!! The past few years I really haven't had a birthday party, so this one turned out to be one of the best in the last 3 years.
Oh oh oh!!! guess what is the best birthday present I received this year???....

FIT Scholarship. Yes yes yes! after 2 years of trying and crying and showing up in the Financial Aid office regularly I finally got some dough. Ou gowsh! I still cant believe it. Every time i went they said no no NOOOOO money for you, but finally I guess they got tired of me a finally decided to give me some free money.

So far everything is going great! And I have to say that I cant wait till school starts to get my hand on and learn some new stuff.

Nothing else to say about my life.
Ciao ragazzi!

His Favorite Color was Yellow

One of my liberal arts this semester is Modern Art. If you are a normal two year FIT student you are required to take 2 History of Art classes. I choose Modern Art because I wanted to explore more this subject and not just say that I go to the MoMa to see art that's modern.

One of the artist we study about is Van Gogh. I'm pretty sure everybody has heard this name
and in some point of your life you have seen Van Gogh's famous Starry Night. But there is more to this guy. He was extremely emotional and lived a very short life. He basically became crazy and killed himself.

Basically I'm writing this post because I can't stop thinking about Van Gogh's sunflowers....

and there is more where this came from.
There is a full series of them.

Knit Goodness

One of the shows from Milan Fashion Week that I totally look forward to each season is Missoni. I love how the Missoni family spirit and warmth is still there, which has been a strong presence in their ad's lately.
Just like this one...
Now you can tell this family is crazy about knits, which I love!

Being an accessories design student and always having to work with leather for most of my projects sometimes get me tired of it and all I want is to slip into something soft and comfy. I'm a crazy crocheter but I guess I don't have the time due to my leather related projects. Don't get me wrong I totally adore leather; its a huge part of what I do and what eventually be doing hopefully.

Anyways here are some of my favorite looks from the Missoni FW 10 collection:

It's fashion week season all over! From NYFW a few weeks ago to LFW last week to the start of Milan Fashion Week this past Thursday and Paris the next, but there are other fashion weeks that are also gaining interest in people like BAFWeek or Buenos Aires Fashion Week.

For me Buenos Aires has always been one of the most important fashion city's of South America and this past week while all eyes were aiming for LFW, BAFW was taking place.

One of my new favorite Argentine designer houses is Rapsodia, which reflects a very distinctive bohemian and young sprint style with a bit of Free People in it.

Here are some of my favorite looks...

Check them out!

On Replay: Walking on a Dream

I like to play songs on replay and I'm always on the search for that song that will make want to have more and more of it until I have had enough and I get tired of it.

The latest one is Walking on a Dream by Empire Of The Sun. It just makes me want to keep searching for the thrill of it.

I just wish it was longer.

Here is the original video.


Finally here!

My MacBook Pro is finally here!..and now I don't even have time for myself. The good thing is that ill be posting more often now that I don't have to be depending on going to school to use the computer lab etc.

It's snowing like crazy today, so I decided not to go to school because its a pretty rough day out in the commuting world.

This morning.

Long Live the Queen!

Today was a bittersweet day in the fashion world. It was the beginning of NY Fashion Week and the end of an amazing designer, Alexander McQueen. My friend Jorge and I decided to go down to the w.14th st. McQueen store this afternoon to pay respects to this memorable iconic fashion designer that has been great inspiration in my life these past few years.
RIP Lee McQueen
