We spent this past weekend in Utah visiting family. The weather was fantastic as was the scenery. It’s so green and the mountain views are amazing; there are so many great spots for photo ops. While in Salt Lake City, I got a couple hours to hit up Nordstrom and check out the Nordstrom anniversary sale. Unfortunately, none of the items I purchased that day were on sale but I didn’t mind because I love them all. I’m obsessed with this midi sweater dress. The material is super soft and a great weight, it hugs the body without being clingy. The rectangular cut and arm stripes make it such a casual piece which I always love to pair with sky-high heels. Speaking of obsessions, I can’t get over these Saint Laurent sandals. I’ve been wearing them with everything lately and I don’t plan on stopping, they’re just so chic!

Summertime is the perfect time to play with colors and textures. This woven clutch by Vince Camuto has lots of both. I love clashing patterns, like this clutch and scarf. Mixing patterns can be tricky but if each item has pattern and/or color that picks up on another item then they’ll play well together because it still allows the outfit to flow. You’ll notice there are stripes in the dress, scarf, and clutch.

Hello and welcome to the new blog! I’m so excited to be creating this first post for Blasé Chic!  One of the most chic wardrobe pieces in my closet are these gorgeous Saint Laurent sandals. Delicate straps juxtaposed with a thick platform and a sky high heel make these shoes one of my favorite pairs. I love wearing them with jeans and equally with shirt dresses for an effortlessly cool look.

In the previous post I wrote a little about changing my name, to my real one, when I relaunched the blog. When I started The F List, I created the name Jen De Marquez as a pen name. The “Jen” part came from my dad wanting to name me Jennifer when I was born. The “De Marquez” portion came from my maternal grandfather’s original surname before he changed it after immigrating to Mexico from Germany. Anyway, I feel the name does’t click with me so I’ll use one that does, my real name- Jeanette Padilla. I can’t wait to create more content that more aptly reflects this new direction I’m taking. I hope you all like it as much as I do.

mesh-2 mesh-3 mesh-4 mesh-5 mesh-6 mesh-1I’m currently completely obsessed with these decorative bralettes from Free People, they are so gorgeous! I typically pin a low cut top like this so it doesn’t accidentally fall open. But having a decorative bralette underneath just slightly peaking out is so fun. They’re so delicate and beautiful. I definitely like this option better than pinning the shirt because pinning the soft delicate material leaves a small mark, which is no good. Also, how awesome are these Gucci sandals? I can’t believe I haven’t photographed them sooner. They go with literally everything.

Military overcoat

This military overcoat is one of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe. The fabric is heavy and has a velvety-like texture to it, it’s such a luxe piece. This coat doesn’t see the outside of my closet too often because it’s never cold enough to wear it. These past few weeks have been chilly though so I decided it was time to take it for a walk. I love the subtle details of this coat. This is one of those investment pieces that I never get tired of seeing. There are so many cool military overcoats out there, it’s hard to choose from all the different styles. The navy color and the subdued details drew me to this particular one because it’s simple enough to wear over any outfit but it still has some texture and cool details.

The past few days have just flown by! New projects, furniture shopping, and work have me feeling dizzy! While it’s exhausting me to pieces, it’s also quite exciting. I can’t wait to share some fun new things I’m working on from some of my favorite Etsy shops, it’s going to be so good! We shot these images this past Saturday and I wasn’t able to get them up until now because I’ve been planning and shopping for the house. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so I have one month to fill my new house with furniture, decorate it, and tackle the ever increasing chaotic mess that is my home office; all while maintaining my current work flow. The anxiety is kicking in just thinking about it. Getting back to these images, it was late in the day when we decided to shoot these. We were so stretched for time but were able to get a bit of light as the sun was setting. That’s why the first image looks so different from the rest. Even though we were so pressed for time, I just had to shoot these shoes. I found them on Poshmark. They’re by Yves Saint Laurent, one of my favorite designers. These little gems are my new obsession and I can’t wait to style them again.

LEOPARDO

Los últimos días han volado! Nuevos proyectos, comprando muebles, y el trabajo me tienen mareada! A pesar de que me está agotando tanto, es también muy emocionante. No puedo esperar para compartir algunas cosas nuevas divertidas en cuales estoy trabajando. Son cosas que vienen de algunas de mis tiendas favoritas de Etsy, les van a encantar! Capturamos estas imágenes el pasado sábado y  no via sido capaz de publicarlas hasta ahora porque he estado planeando y comprando cosas para la casa. Este año, yo so el anfitrión del dia de Acción de Gracias, así que tengo un mes para llenar mi nueva casa con muebles, decorar, y poner en orden el desastre que crece cada dia en mi oficina. Aparte de todo eso tengo que mentener mi flujo de trabajo actual. Me da ansiedad en sólo pensar en ello. Volviendo a estas imágenes, era tarde en el día cuando decidimos fotografiar este atuendo. Estábamos muy cortos de tiempo, pero pudimos conseguir un poco de luz un poco antes de que el sol se fue. Es por eso que la primera imagen se ve tan diferente del resto. A pesar de que estábamos tan cortos con el tiempo, tenía que fotografiar estos zapatos. Los encontré en Poshmark. Son de Yves Saint Laurent, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Estas zapatillas son mi nueva obsesión y no puedo esperar para fotografiar las de nuevo.

tory-burch-6You may recall I purchased these Tory Burch “Lolita” pumps a little while back. I finally got around to styling them. They are so comfortable despite having a 4 inch heel. Anytime I see an even remotely vampy-looking shoe I think it will be uncomfortable, but I’ve noticed that is not the case with Tory Burch shoes. What can I say, they’re just so well made.

LOLITA

Compré estos zapatos “Lolita” de Tory Burch un tiempo atrás. Por fin me di el tiempo para crear un atuendo con ellos. Son tan cómodos a pesar de tener un tacón de 4 pulgadas. Cada vez que veo un zapato ni remotamente seductor creo que va a ser incómodo, pero me he dado cuenta que no es el caso con los zapatos de Tory Burch. Qué puedo decir, simplemente son tan bien hechos.

Weirdness is typically an attribute most try not be associated with. I like weirdness and weird things. As children we’re cast out by schoolmates when we don’t fit in. Even as young adults and into adulthood, fitting in becomes so important that we sometimes lose our true selves. Something about  “the nail that sticks out” comes to mind. But being a little weird is exactly what sets apart most of our current icons like, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

These two ladies are incredibly successful because of their talent and I like to think it also has a little to do with their weirdness. They’re not afraid to be different or stick out from the crowd. These two ladies, it seems, have fully embraced their weirdness. They’re incredibly unique and true to themselves. Life is too short to not be who you want to be. So grab your take out box handbag, put on your matchstick ring, slip on your sunglasses slingback pumps and take life by the horns.

Acepta lo extraño

Ser extraño suele ser un atributo con cual le mayoria de la gente trata de no asociarse . A mi me gustan las cosas extrañas. Cuando somos niños somos ignorados por los compañeros de escuela si tratamos de ser diferentes. Incluso la gente joven y hasta los adultos se esfuerzan para ser igual que los demas y se convierte en algo tan importante que a veces pierden su individualidad. Algo sobre “el clavo que sobresale” viene a la mente. Pero ser un poco extraño or raro es exactamente lo que distingue a la mayoría de nuestros iconos como, Lady Gaga y Katy Perry.

Estas dos mujeres son increíblemente exitosas debido a su talento y me gusta pensar que también tiene que ver un poco con sus manera extraña de ser. Ellas no tienen miedo de ser diferente o sobresalir de la multitud. Estas dos mujeres, al parecer, han adoptado plenamente sus maneras extrañas. Son increíblemente únicas y fieles a sí mismas. La vida es demasiado corta para no ser quien quieres ser. Así que coge tu bolso de caja de comida China, agarra el anillo de cerilla, ponte las zapatillas de lentes de sol y agarra  la vida por los cuernos.

CALVIN KLEIN BUCKET BAG

calvin-klein-bucket-bag-4 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-2 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-6 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-5calvin-klein-bucket-bag-3I’ve had this gorgeous Calvin Klein bucket bag for a while now and was anxiously waiting to photograph it. My sister was happy to play photographer for the day and we got these great shots. I love the texture of this purse. It’s made of saffiano leather which is a pressed leather with a crosshatch pattern. The texture almost feels like plastic making this purse virtually stain resistant. It’s easy to clean and keeps its gorgeous shape perfectly when stored properly.

He tenido esta hermosa bolsa, estilo cubeta, de Calvin Klein por un tiempo y estaba esperando ansiosamente para fotografiarla. Mi hermana estaba feliz de actuar como fotógrafo por el día y creamos estas bellas fotografías. Me encanta la textura de este bolso. Está hecho de cuero “saffiano” que es un cuero prensado con un patrón cuadriculado. La textura casi se siente como plástico que hace este bolso virtualmente resistente a las manchas. Es fácil de limpiar y mantiene su magnífica forma perfectamente cuando se almacena apropiadamente.

R & R

In celebration of the boyfriend’s birthday we are going on a cruise! It’s a great way to forget how old you’re getting, haha. On a more serious note, I have not packed a thing and we leave in a few hours. I did however, prepare myself by making this pretty packing visual “list”! These are my staple pieces I am definitely bringing. Why is there a cardigan, a shrug and a long sleeve top you ask? Great question! You can put your hand down now. Weather forecasts tend to be unreliable and I’m really counting on that because I’m seeing cloudy skies and rain for almost the entire trip! We’re going to Mexico by the way, why is the sun on vacation this week?! For this reason, I prepared light tops that I can layer over a dress or wear with pants and other basic pieces in case it gets a little too cool.

Gray Cardigan: Iris & Ink 
Chevron Stripe Dress: Hive & Honey
Over-sized Black Sunglasses: Fendi
Black Glitter Sandals: MICHAEL Michael Kors
Cross Front Shrug: ALLSAINTS
Tunic Top: Trouve
Tie Dye Maxi Dress: Red Haute
Hobo Bag: Furla
Parfum: Lolita Lempicka
Crepe Pant: James Perse
Silver Sandal: Prada
Blue Sunglasses: Pucci
Extra Wide Brim Hat: San Diego Hat Coompany

Two more things I have to mention. There was no paid advertisement, trust me. I just loooooooove these two particular items. First is the Furla hobo handbag. This one is almost identical to one I bought a few years back on my first trip to Paris. It was the one and only souvenir I brought home. A few years later and it’s still spectacular and looks exactly the same even though I use it nearly every single day. The quality, of course, is superb. It’s simple but luxe. The one I listed however has a second strap so it can be worn cross-body which is fantastic and super useful when traveling. I may just add this one to my collection just because of that extra strap! Lastly, I have to rave about the extra wide brim hats by San Diego Hat Company. They are so beautiful and fit perfectly in any beach or poolside setting. These in particular are really wide and oh so well made; if you’re only going to buy one sun hat this summer, make sure it’s this one.
