SAVILE ROW, LONDON

When in doubt, wear black. Here I am on the streets of Mayfair in London: layered up in 3 of my main travel essentials: a silk blouse, a giant wool coat, and perfect polka-dot trousers. I went with my boyfriend to shop for suits out on Savile Row, the most posh and luxurious shopping road in all of London. Each store has it’s own tailor. Everything is bespoke, made of the absolute best silks and cashmeres and wools. It sure is an experience, shopping for the most perfect suit, and believe me, the men in London know how to rock a good suit. With time, I noticed low-key Shoreditch was a lot more our style though work always brings me to this part of town! Now this is where you want to stop by for a real afternoon tea. A place to dress up in your most fabulous coat and shoes. Go all out. I say go to Claridges, take a walk back in time, and indulge in England’s most buttery cakes. Now that’s one fun way to feel like royalty.

THE CORSET DRESS | LONDON

The shape of this Ellery dress is like a work of art. An exaggerated waistline, beautiful puffy sleeve, and flouncy skirt. I’m in love with this feminine, corset-like cut. It creates a delicate, beautiful shape of the female body, just seeing it hanging on a hanger. I’ve never seen anything like it! Here I am taking it for a walk in Notting Hill, London. The only way to survive the breezy London air, is to always pair your dress over a pair of trousers. Key to traveling abroad come December? Layer, layer, layer and experiment. Voila. Another epic work week in London accomplished, with a whole lot of killer looks to go with it. You may be wondering where in the world I am now, but I’m completely de-layered for a month back home in sunny Los Angeles. I’ve been in town for a new campaign, and of course shooting and editing loads that will go live before the New Year. Team Suarez has either been stuck in the studio or tied up in Lightroom wrapping up some last-minute holiday projects. It’s almost, ALMOST time for me to unplug for one summer-y Christmas in LA. Until then, this girl is in the zone.

THE ULTIMATE RED CARPET GOWN BY GUCCI

A quick hello tonight from the Catskills! This holiday weekend has been perfection. Out here in the mountains, I’ve gotten so much fresh air. A perfect Thanksgiving…one with a lot of much-needed rest. I’ve been working non-stop for the past few weeks, and already am headed to LA in 2 days so I needed this quiet little getaway to lay low and escape the city for a few days. With plenty of down time to scroll through my camera roll, I stumbled upon images of this gorgeous Gucci gown I’ve worn quite a few times this past month. It’s so good. It had to be blogged. It’s from NET-A-PORTER. I save this stunning dress for special occasions. I wore it to a red carpet event in London recently, and also here, gallivanting in Vinegar Hill  on my birthday. Even when I don’t have a reason to celebrate, it’s a piece you put on and daydream in. So. Glamorous. That’s all I can say! This silk beauty zips up like a glove and moves beautifully on the dance floor. I gravitated towards it’s retro, vintage feel. With a white flower so perfectly sewn to the neckline, it could easily double as a costume in a Hollywood movie. This old school elegance doesn’t come around often, and Gucci really knows how to bring it to life.

PINK VELVET ON THE STREETS OF LONDON

I have a new designer to love: Rejina Pyo. I discovered this amazing designer label on NET-A-PORTER when I spotted this crushed velvet David Bowie-esque pantsuit splashed against the homepage. I knew it had to be mine. I love the thick waist belt complete with an extra wide-leg pant. A pantsuit is essential for me when I travel. I have them in just about every color, and they’re fantastic to travel in…worn together or as separates. They make packing a total breeze. This one is a showstopper. I was just in London with Veuve Clicquot for their special Widow Series art exhibit with Carine Roitlfeld and decided to extend my stay at the Nobu Shoreditch so that I could soak in all that East London had to offer.  Traveling with Veuve Clicquot is always such a dream. They throw the most incredible events, that always leave me inspired. More on that in another post! But here, I hit up just about every single store off Redchurch Street as I constantly searched for the nearest Indian restaurant. Can you say Dishoom?! I crave their curry the moment I get off the plane. London is a such a special city. Their love for art and fashion is unlike anywhere else. It’s the most amazing place to be inspired in both design and decor. I finally had a day off so I grabbed a cup of coffee and hit the city by foot in Rejina Pyo pink.
