Well, Hello there…(missed you)

What a discovery upon signing into the Chrome internet browser! All the favorite sites I had once saved on the bookmarks toolbar are right before me. As if I was meant to stumble upon my favs. I did a quick click of some, one of those being my WordPress blog page.

Ha! I didn’t even remember my blog that I so passionately dove into back in 20 12, 13, 14, 15..16 existed ?!

(update) So here we are and so much has gone on since the last post in 2015.  These days are jam packed. I Wake up, make up and push positivley through the Mon-Friday 9 to 5. While the before and after hours of the 9 to 5 is a maze of doing a bit of social media for the online women’s swimwear boutique, ginaviswimtique.com (exciting news!) taking care of my home (cooking and cleaning ;P), boyfriend (&domestic partner <3)  and 3 (needy) dogs, taking care of ME, and also regularly visting and tending  to my sickly bed bound grandma,  prego baby sis, mom, dad, other siblings, friends,  my car and whatever else is out there that needs immediate help on my day to day……(happy huff) o_O

Somethings never change.(ambition)  I’ve thankfully been able to manifest some of the things I dreamt of in the past into a reality. Today I am happy to say that I am the Chief Executive Officer aka CEO 😉 of GINAVI, LLC. I run a women’s swimwear online boutique , GINAVISWIMTIQUE. I am always looking for resources, collaborations and networks that will allow me  to continue to grow my brand on a day to day basis.

(Passion) I have grown so much with every experience I’ve had. In finding my passions I have dabbled in a bit of everything but I must say that alwaysbeing consistent with a theme. The areas of fashion, luxury, trends, structure, policy, consumer satisfaction, logistics, finances, itellectuality and helping other succeed along with me are the things interest me. I will continute to always push for more, more love, more creativity, more possitivity, more money, more networks, never forgeting to include more leisure, more self love, more spreading peace and love.

(Ranting)! Dear blog I’m happy to find you, update you and now stay connected!

Love,

GinaVi

 

 

 

 

 

Pink Bag

I’m recently yearning a small pink hand bag. I am in between the baby pink and a summery pink.

For months now, we’ve been seeing the 70’s inspired fashions coming down the runways, red carpets, and streets. Alot of what you’ll be seeing this spring and summer are bold colors, groovy patterns, jumpsuits, long flowy dresses, and futuristic yet retro chic sportswear.

Small handbags are back and IN. .. Here are a few I’m loving ..

I HEART U PANTS

Rayban Flash Lenses Aviator sunglasses, Ivanka Trump Kayden4 Pumps, GAP Favorite crew tee & Super skinny surplus khakis, Olivia & Joy handbag

 Recently, browsing stores at Lincoln Road as I sporadically do on weekends, I came across my new favorite bottom and all-seasons essential!

I’m in love with GAP’s Super Skinny Khaki in the Olive color! Thee ever so versatile pants fit perfectly and look great with almost anything. They sit just below the belly button; they are not too high or too low. The material is thick but very soft, and the fit is just perfect. They’re snug in all the right places, yet fashionably relaxed. The three colors that they come in, Olive, Shadow (dark grey), and Oslo grey (light khaki) are truly utility colors; you can wear them with just about any color palette and style.

I’ve only had them for a little less than a week and have already worn them with pumps, slides, sneakers and even bare feet around the house and patio. (they’re sitting in my laundry basket as I type) 🙂

My only recommendation is that you try them on for size fitting because I usually purchase size 2 but I was pleasantly surprised to find that size 0 fit me like a glove! Thanks Gap for the ego boost with that size down! 😉

I’m so excited about RAZON, a new high-end Eyewear brand. Native to Miami; they’re coming in with a splash and thinking outside of the frame in a revolutionary way!

Who doesn’t love a quality brand, with luxurious eye-catching products, who gives back to the less fortunate?!?!

The stylish shades are designed for both men and women and are a true representation of Miami culture and lifestyle. RAZON’s sporty chic sunglasses are carefully crafted in signature woods, Bamboo, ebony, and Rosewood. Engraved with their logo, which carries the iconic symbol of Florida, the flamingo, they truly have the look and feel of luxury.

I’m totally obsessing over the yellow pair!

Being a Miami Native myself I can truly appreciate the splendor that these posh sunglasses offer. I must say that it’s also a feel-good incentive knowing that in spoiling myself to a great fashion find, I am also supporting 3 individuals in developing countries benefit from a pair of prescription glasses!

RAZON’S philosophy “Eye for an Eye” is kind of a major deal. For every pair of sunglasses sold they will donate 3 pairs of prescription glasses to individuals in the developing world. Yes, THREE!

They have linked up with Eyejusters, a company who is overcoming the need for optometrist by allowing users to adjust the lenses to suit their own eyes through their revolutionary glasses. Cool, right?! The innovation doesn’t stop there; when a customer purchases a pair of RAZON sunglasses, they will receive a digital tracking code to track their donated pairs of prescription glasses as they are delivered to individuals in the developing world… talk about gratification.

Can’t wait to see everything they have in store, starting with RAZON’s official launch on March 26th, during Miami’s Winter Music Conference (WMC)!

Carnival Miami

Friday night, was all about tropical glam. The Kiwanis of Miami hosted their annual Carnival Miami Gala at the most fitting Jungle Island. Hazel, my girl friend, and I glammed up for an evening of Bacardi cocktails, live Cuban rhythms, and beautifully dressed people.

BADGLEY MISCHKA MBFW NY 14′

The Badgley Mischka collection was by far my absolute favorite 2014 fall /winter show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, New York .  It screams everything I am. Timeless, sexy, goddess, corporate, classic, chic, modern, glamorous, and sophisticated are some of the first words that came to mind as I watched the models come down the runway. The detail that was put into each skirt, gown, dress, blouse and pant is so rich. After watching the show via the Mercedes Benz Live stream from the warm Miami, I swear I just wanted to slip into a beautiful sleek maxi skirt/ long skirt and the perfect tee shirt and go somewhere, anywhere..really. You can turn many pieces from day to night, office to nice dinner or to an after hours business meeting.

This is that I have not even mentioned the evening gowns. To die for. Sleek and sexy. The fabric and prints were just fascinating. They seemed to be and feel like soft whimsical angels, Romantic goddesses and glamorous chic as the polished Victoria Beckham. she actually popped into mind a few times as I saw the show.

The collection and show was everything ! See it below !

I loved every piece but here are some of the times to watch out for during the show. These were my top top ..it was hard to pick a few!

How lucky am I to have quality & designer shops, cafe’s, restaurants and art galleries near my new home? For that reason, this is where it’s at on social Saturday afternoons. Easy Breezy, the only other thing I could possibly ask for is an extra $20k to purchase a few items I’ve had my eyes on. Louis Vuitton, Marni, Celine, Emilio Pucci, Christian Louboutin, Versace Home & Cartier.. Just to mention a few of the spots in the  Design District scene where I like to indulge and begin masterminding budgeting strategies.

I felt completely comfortable and appropriate for the outing, Saturday strolls at Design District, Miami .

Recently, I have been totally obsessing over Royal Blue or how I prefer to call it, Power Blue. It may because I’m from the Magic City, Miami, or maybe because Jay-Z is my favorite rapper, maybe it’s because I’m Cuban, or quite possibly because blue  is simply my favorite color. Either way it’s the one of the colors that I’m currently into as we transition from Winter to Spring. I know most of the nation is still dealing with the polar vortex (sorry) but we are talking about Miami here!

I tend to gravitate towards accessories, handbags and shoes that carry metals, chains and  hardware on them. For me it has something to do with the way the heavy materials feel and look; they’re tough, rustic, edgy, not polished but polished, and hard. Feels of good quality. The perfect match to harden up and add a bit of bad girl edge to any outfit.

This outfit was truly inspired by how I was feeling that day. Hard and edgy but still sexy. Regardless of the turbulent start I had to the day, with a good attitude, I was able to end it fabulously.

Always remember attitude is everything, all the time.  Have a great weekend!

Love,

GINA VI
