Mixed Monochrome

Happy Monday all!! I am in the process of moving but wanted to do a quick post of an outfit I wore last week. I know that there are thousands of ways to rock the black and white "Trend" but I love how it looks when different prints are paired. I am no stranger to the mixing my prints (see here, here and here) but there is just something so chic and clean when those prints are black and white. Expect to see this color combo on me a lot this fall.
Alright so I have so much unpacking to do so I am going to sign off now. Hope you all have a wonderful week and don't forget to check out my instagram @according2trish for even more great content.

NYFW Day 5

This is the last outfit I wore for New York Fashion Week. I wish I could have stayed longer because I love fashion week but of course duty calls and I had to get back to work. This jacket is pure sickness!! I have been holding on this baby since February waiting to bust it out at the right moment. I think fashion week was the perfect moment!!! The pops of red I added really brought this outfit up a notch. Trust that this will not be the last time you see me in this baby. It will be back!!!

NYFW Day 4: Feathers and Leather

This is probably my favorite outfit from fashion week. I love feathers and this fabulous feather stole, that I found in a quant vintage shop in Amsterdam, is beyond amazing. You wouldn't believe that this actually goes around your neck but I decided to put a Trisha twist on it and tie it around my waist to give a sort of peplum allusion.
I am really into leather this fall. Like I can't get enough of it. I love how this dress isn't completely leather because it makes it that much more interesting.
I just want to warn you all now, these shoes are so chic and comfortable and you will see me wear them  a lot this fall. Speaking of fall, its actually officially fall now. I can't believe how quickly this year seems to be going by. Like many others, fall is my favorite season but I am dreading the colder weather to come. Well, I'm sure I have something else to do right now so I going to stop typing and wish you all a great week!!

Puerto Rico

I figure I'd take a break from my NYFW post to share with you some of my photos from Puerto Rico. As I told you I was in Puerto Rico for a short vacation and I wanted to do a "little" photo diary to show you all of the amazing things I was able to see and experience while I was there. With this chill in the air that we're having on the east coast, I am  certainly missing that Puerto Rican sunshine.
 We stayed at the Embassy Suites and Casino, which was great. They have free breakfast in the morning and a free cocktail time between 5:30-7:30pm every evening. I would definitely recommend staying there.
Food selection was also good in Puerto Rico. When you're there you must try the Mofongo, which is a Puerto Rican dish made of plantains and which ever kind of meat (or veggies) you choose.

The beaches in Puerto Rico are beautiful (not as beautiful as Barbados lol). We had so much fun walking around the beaches and old San Juan. Old San Juan is full of such rich history and beautiful architecture, I felt like I was in a little city in the Middle of Spain. Another great thing to do while in old   San Juan, besides walking around and taking in the beautiful scenery, is visit the Bacardi brewery. It's such a good tour and it free. After the tour you get  two free samples of Bacardi cocktails. Such a great deal!
 All in all I had a very good time and would definitely love to go again. If you have visited Puerto Rico and have any suggests  I missed or have any questions I can answer please leave a comments below. Also you can check out even more photos from my Puerto Rican trip on my instagram @according2trish and my facebook page

NYFW Day 3

Here's a look at what I wore on the third day of New York fashion week. This outfit is one of my favorites because the skirt was a DIY project. Yes I made that skirt! It took me two long partial days but I made it and I think it came out beautifully.
I was so excited to find a vintage bustier in my size (I guess woman didn't have big boobs back then). I have been looking for a while and finally grab this one off of ebay. 
I am still in Puerto Rico enjoying the beautiful sunshine but will be flying back home tonight, to what I'm told is "Fall-like" weather. Well I'm headed to the beach for the last time, I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a fantastic rest of the week.

NYFW: Crop top and mixed prints

During NYFW, it's all about wardrobe changes. I wore this outfit on the second day of fashion week as well but later in the day. This was my dinner outfit. Speaking of dinner, meals during NYFW are usually few and far between and when you do get a chance to eat, you want it to be something really good. Unfortunately, our epicurean luck was bad and we didn't really have too many great meals. 

As I type I am currently enjoying a much needed vacation in Puerto Rico. After such a stressful, yet amazing, time at New York Fashion Week you want to be able to relax and recharge yourself and this trip is my attempt at that. I can't wait to share some of the beautiful pictures that I'm taking here. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I would love to hear about your plans, so leave your comments below. You can also follow along with my adventures on instagram @according2trish.

NYFW Day 2

Hello all, I hope you've enjoyed your weekend. As I type this I am currently in New York for fashion week. Fashion week is one of my favorite times of the year and this trip has been a blast. I have had some truly great experiences. I attended a few shows (which I will be giving you a sneak peek of soon) and have had my fill of fashion lounges and events. I am truly appreciative of the experiences I get to have because of my blog. I can't wait to show you all of the great photos that I took. Until then, here are the pictures I took of my first look which was taken on the second day of Fashion week.
