Black and Blue

Hey guys! I know its been a while, but with all the shopping, wrapping, holiday parties and all around holiday fun its been quite difficult getting myself to “stop and smell the roses” a/k/a blogging in my world! So before we say good bye to 2014 here’s a look I wore a few weeks ago on one of those “cold” days we had!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and although I plan to post something before New Year’s Eve, I wish you all a Happy New Year in advance!

Rompers: My Love/ Hate Relationship

Hey guys! Hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekend so far. Last night I attended my sister’s boyfriend’s graduation party to which I FINALLY wore this Peter Pilotto x Target Iris print romper. Yes, I know, I went ham on this collection, but can you blame me? The geometric floral print of this romper (same print you saw on this dress) is striking and very much in with this seasons bold, modern floral print trend!

As irresistible as this little romper is, it’s a romper none the less and even though this was the first romper I’ve worn that correctly fit and flattered my body, once the wheels (legs) started turning (walking) I was quickly reminded of why I NEVER wear rompers.  See, I suffer from “hungry thighs” it’s a syndrome prominent in Latina women in which the inner thighs devour and store any fragment of clothing they come in contact with. You ladies know what I’m talking about.  That uncomfortable bunching of the shorts in between your butt and thighs that creates the need to stop, squat and pick in the most always unavoidable (non)nonchalant manner.

Knowing this would inevitably happen, I chose the right type of event to don this pretty little thing. A celebratory gathering with chatting, dining and dancing, i.e. minimal walking and mandatory squatting (dancing), yes, this is Miami, squatting is mandatory on the dance floor.

Rompers are absolutely adorable, sexy and versatile for Miami’s scorching hot weather. I really wish I could wear more of them, but for now, my heart is content! I tried something new! Yippeeee!

Thanks for stopping by! HAPPY SUNDAY!

The Holy Grail

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! With a wedding and very special surprise birthday party to attend, this past Saturday proved the perfect day to debut the dress I consider the “Holy Grail” of the Peter Pilotto x Target Collection. The Jacquard Dress in Red Iris Print was the single most coveted piece of the collection, and at 3:00 a.m. on February 9, 2014, when I placed this dress in my shopping cart on Net-A-Porter.com, it took every fiber of my being to stop myself from screaming excitedly up and down the halls of my apartment building like a lunatic!

Just a few short hours later, this beauty was being resold on e-Bay for up to three times its original price of $79.99. I’m not going to lie, had I failed to purchase it directly from Target or Net-A-Porter for its original price, I would have paid double and would not have regret it for a second.

From the eye popping colors; genius geo-floral print; rich textured fabric; playful, pleated, tulle enhanced skirt; and fabulous bodice top. This dress is the most exquisite item to come out of any Target designer collaboration to date!

I went for an ultra playful and colorful spring look by adding blue (faux) suede shoes from Shoedazzle, a light blue clutch from Ann Taylor Loft and minimal accessories.

I wish you all a productive and joyful week!

xoxo

Fun Femme Frock

And so my love affair with the Peter Pilotto x Target Collection continues, but can you blame me?  I mean, look at the use of print and color on this frock; and the low-high cut, ruffled bottom goes without saying!  This little frock is fun and feminine all wrapped up with a matching black/white patent leather belt into one fabulous frock! I opted for all black and white accessories this time around, but for future use of this frock, I look forward to altering the dynamic by replacing the belt with a solid colored belt and coordinating accessories.  Of course, you will see it here on Sun Fun Fashion!

Peter Pilotto for Target

Hey guys! I am finally getting around to posting a look featuring one of the many (ok, lots of many) pieces I purchased from the Peter Pilotto for Target Collection.  If you know me, or simply scroll through the pages of Sun Fun Fashion you will quickly realize that I am a sucker for prints, color and structured pieces and NO ONE and I really mean NO ONE does bold prints, color and structure quite like the two gentlemen behind Peter Pilotto.  This by far, has been my favorite designer/Target collaboration to date!

Aside from my infatuation with the colors and prints, the fabrics are not too shabby either.  The fabrics are appropriate for the price- plenty of polyester (but not the wrinkly and scratchy kind), nice cotton-blend jersey and a few pieces made with a textured jacquard effect material such as the highly coveted Jacquard Iris Print Dress.  The sizing I found to run a bit large with the exception of the Jacquard Iris Print Dress, which despite sizing up to a size 8 is still extremely snug in the chest area (and I don’t even have a chest area).  I ordered the Blue/White Color Block blazer in a Medium (my usual blazer size), but I really wish I would have ordered a Small.

Overall, with all merchandise priced within $14.99 – $79.99, I have to say I am very pleased with this collaboration!  I consider my 4:00 a.m. rousing on the date of the release to be well justified and advantageous as the majority of the collection sold out both at Target and Net-a-Porter within the first few hours of its release. image Red Floral/Check Print Skirt: Peter Pilotto for Target; Blue/White Print Blouse: Purchased from a random vendor at my usual beauty salon; Caged Heels: Nine West; Black/White Color Block Fold-Over Clutch: EXPRESS (gift); Black & White Bracelet: Kate Spade; 3D Printed Cobalt Diamond Ring: Orlando Fernandez (www.maison203.com) purchased at the Perez Art Museum Miami Gift Shop.   image_3image_5image_4image_7image_6image_8image_2image_1
