Come One, Come All to the Carnival of Dreams!

{Dress: Guess, Sandals: Marshalls, Earrings: Lucky Brand, Sunglasses: Forever21} My Summer consist of many outdoor activities that I want to partake in before summer is long gone. I mean why not? I love getting in my car and driving to a new horizon and not knowing what to expect or what I’m going to see.  The OC Fair is the quintessential summer destination  that everyone has to go to.  I love the bright colors, the rides, and I can not forget the food …everything is fried! As soon as i smelled the sizzling Turkey legs, I said to myself this your cheat day so go wild. I had a blast and this to me was a reminder I should not take myself too seriously.  I don’t know what it was about the Fair maybe it was the amount of sugar I had that day(I had the best funnel cake Sunday), but my inner child sure had the time of her life. I set a quote for myself: When the going gets tough never to forget I was once …

The Sea of Love

  {Top: Ay Que Vintage, Shorts: Forever 21, Sandals: Marshalls,Hat: Zara} This past weekend I celebrated our eight year anniversary with my love by surprising him to a ride/picnic  on a boat.   I wanted to surprise him with something that I know he loves to do.  Riding the boat by the beach reminded me of the movie Sabrina.  Its one of my favorite movies of all time, I imagined how she seemed so happy while sining the banana song and it was the moment when Humphrey Bogart’s character truly falls in love with Audrey Hepburn’s character… call me cheesy, but maybe I wanted to build that kind of romance with my love. I got a feeling of peace and serenity as we listened to good ol’ 60’s rock music in the open sea, from The Beach Boys to The Beatles.  I loved everything about it.  I wanted to embrace and show case the open sea with my outfit with a mix of the Caribbean.

Rosalina Suarez Photography

{Dress: Ay Que Vintage, Accessories: Forever 21}   I aways imagined where I wanted my blog to go as time went by I imagined that it would turn into  whimsical photographs  that were able to transport people into my adventures and locations. This weekend I got together with my cousin who is a photographer and owns her business in the photography field: Rosalina Suarez Photography.  She and I decided to have a small shoot between the break that we had during the wedding that we photographed the past weekend.  Which comes to a reminder that I have news for you guys.  As of now I dont know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t been posting as often because I have taken up another challenge and got the opportunity to work for Rosa (my cousin) in her wedding or special events.   She is very talented photographer and her skills are undeniably artistic I love that I am able to work with another person who shares the same passions as me. I see summer as the time where …

Sunset with Lace

  {American Apparel dress, heels purchased in Amazon, Ivanka Trump purse, Marc Jacobs watch, Thrift Store accessories} Hello everyone, Once again I find myself having a small hiatus from my blog and it is something that breaks my heart.  From the end of another school year to a daily 8 to 5 job.  I find myself struggling with finding time to do what I love to do.  I managed to find the time I needed and enjoy the three day weekend we just had.  I love enjoying the weekends as much as possible and stay away from sitting down, which is what I do at my office job.  The outfit that I wore was different from the rest.  I wanted to feel extra fancy this day so I put the dress that always makes me feel so lady like and ended with my dear Penny Lane by my side and witness the beautiful sunset.        

Love Street

{Dress: Forever 21 Love 21, Jewelry Forever 21, Sandal: Tjmaxx, Bag: Ay Que Vintage} The Venice Canals was a place that I have been dying to see.  I couldn’t help having in mind James Morrison walking through those canals and writing the best lyrics for the Doors.  It was a peaceful afternoon and yes ladies and gents the dress was very comfortable. I believe in comfort in fashion, besides looking great and expressing yourself through your fashion I believe in comfort, so this dress made me very happy. I am in love with the patterns, the colors, and the way it fit like a glove. The dress is boho chic the perfect companion to my dress was the purse it reminded me of a beautiful earth stone.      

Journey of a Dress

{Tj Maxx  crop Top, Windsor Leather Jacket, Peter Pilotto for Target skirt, Olsenboye Strappy heels, Ray ban glasses, Vintage purse, Mar Jacobs watch} The Journey of a designer specially Diane Von Fursteberg Story is one to really look out for.  She was able to work with the times and give woman freedom with the rap dress.  Specially during the 70’s when woman were fighting for equal rights.  Her wrap dress itself gave women the freedom to wear what they desired and it was accessible, while still being fashion forward.  Having the opportunity to witness all these dresses was something eye opening. I wanted to wear an outfit that went with the patterns Miss Furstenberg has created over the years and my skirt was a perfect representation of those dress. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, xoxo Charms of Penny

The Happiest Place on Earth

The magic of Disney filled my weekend.  This is a place where everyone’s inner child comes out and I am no exception of this expression.  Just thinking about this past weekend and the amount of sugar I consumed gets me hyper all over again. How is that a grown woman still gets excited to see Minnie Mouse? I should not even be questioning this because the magic of Disney never leaves anybody’s soul. Thank you so much for stopping by and remember,  make sure to leave a lovely comment XOXO, Charms of Penny To go with the theme of Disney and fairy tales I wore: {Tj Maxx sunflower skirt, Ay Que Vintage! ( small shop in Long Beach) shirt, Forever 21 sunnies and sandals, and the Minnie Mouse trademark Ears}      

Spring has Sprung

{Thrift Dress, Aldo Bag, Jeffrey Campbell Heels, Forever 21 earrings, bracelet, and necklace, Marc Jacobs watch} For days I have been anticipating this day. The first day of spring, it is the opportunity of new beginnings: The Flowers are starting to blossom, the time change, and the sunshine is coming out a bit more which means I get to wear more dresses.  Hello brighter colors and catch you later dear coats.  My inspiration to my “Hello to Spring” is my thrift Dress, which is crazy to believe that I found this dress at the amazing price of five dollars. I am now trying to find new hairstyles, it was one of the reasons why I am letting my hair grow, their is a lot of versatility. The location is a place that I have always looked at, but have never had the opportunity to visit.  The Walt Disney Hall is architecturally beautiful.  Every angle of this location is different it reminded me of a House of mirrors.    

I left my Heart in San Francisco

{Levis Pants, Vintage Leopard Jacket, Target shirt, Target Sunglasses, Cathy Jean Boots, Forever 21 earrings and ring} Ok so maybe I’m a bit obsessed with this city, so much so that I have dedicated three separate entrees to it. Yes its that magical and yes you should go and see for yourself what I am talking about.  The title speaks for itself, so far I have left my heart in San Fran everything about it was perfect, what made it even more perfect is that I had the opportunity to share these moments with my love. I dont know what it was, but this city brought my wild rock and roller side… literally I’m wearing leopard jacket..This outfit was a bit more risky to something I would not normally wear, honestly I loved that I took that risk.
