Over the years, I’ve learned the value of an outfit. A great cut, style and fit will make you stand taller. It may cost more then what you would purchase at Forever 21, but you will wear the piece for much longer.  Also, for the love of all things stylish, resist the urge to shop at Forever 21 if you’re no longer in your 20s. Invest in clothing, just as you invest in stocks – think value and appreciation, your appreciation.

These 3 little black dresses (LBD) will stop them in their tracks and make you shine.  They’re timeless, stylish and chic. I loved them so much I brought two for myself! Can you guess which ones? Let me know in a comment! 

Black Halo Marissa Sheath Dress

This LBD is a must. It’s simple, yet striking, because of one detail: the zippered slit. Keep the slit at a modest level for work, then pull the zipper higher and show a bit more leg for that after-work date.  Better yet, let your date pull the zipper for you. Oh la la.
The Black Halo Marissa Sheath Dress comes in size 0-14.

I absolutely love the cape on this mini dress. It’s sophisticated and sexy, while also hiding any flabby underarms! Talk about a win-win!
The Halston Heritage V Neck Crepe Dress with Cape dress comes in size 0-14.

Black Halo Haddy Mini Dress

The embroidery at the top of this LBD adds a pop of color that is quite striking. It’s a perfect date night option that will make you feel feminine and flirty!

The Black Halo Haddy Mini Dress comes in size 0-12.

2017: The Year to Thrive Thumbnail 2017: The Year to Thrive Thumbnail

We're almost three weeks into the New Year and I have finally discovered my word: THRIVE. Without going into details about 2016, because who really wants to relive that year, I can say with absolute certainty that 2017 will be a year of change. Whether the change is positive or negative is up to me [...]

Growing up in Puerto Rico meant that I was able to enjoy, and participate, in parrandas during the holidays. It was one of the highlights of the holidays for me! Parrandas are the Spanish equivalent of caroling in the United States. It’s fun, family oriented fun. And I’m always down for family oriented fun. It’s [...]

Easy Mango Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Easy Mango Chicken Quesadillas Recipe Thumbnail Easy Mango Chicken Quesadillas Recipe Thumbnail

Growing up I wasn't much of a mango fan even though my family grew mangoes in their backyard. Now that I'm older, I can't believe I didn't like mangoes! They are chock full of vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber and potassium. They also increase your energy, lower your weight, and best of all, give you [...]

5 Workplace Lessons Learned From Watching My Dogs Thumbnail 5 Workplace Lessons Learned From Watching My Dogs Thumbnail

I'm a dog lover. I say that proudly even though studies suggest cat people are smarter. Dogs have their perks. They're social, smart, and loyal. And according to a study by the University of California at Berkeley dog owners are typically extroverted, agreeable, energetic, fun and conscientious. Watching my dogs this weekend made me realize [...]

Every First Was Also a Last #Blogust Thumbnail Every First Was Also a Last #Blogust Thumbnail

  His first smile. His first "Mama". His first walk. I treasured those milestones because I knew that his firsts were also my last.   I never expected to be a young Mom.  It wasn't on my radar ... But life never hands us what we want, it delivers what we need.   I needed [...]
