Wearing MANGO head to toe 🙂

My beautiful friends and fans came out to see me! I love them for it!

I was surprisingly very comfortable having the camera follow me during the entire event! The MANGO film crew were so much fun!

My sister, Dylana Suarez, and our good friend and new fashion blogger, Shamime Shaw, came out to the event! They’re the best!


The lovely Carmen Chan, creator and photographer of How I Met Your Style, came out! She has become one of my very good friends ever since photographing us in our home!

Such a sweet reader of my blog. She showed so much support. Love her!

On Friday night, I hosted the MANGO + Marie Claire event in Santa Monica! It was the most wonderful experience ever. So many of my friends came out, as well as many of my blog readers! I got to finally meet them in person, and even help them shop for some of their favorite spring pieces. Everyone found a MANGO piece they loved that really fit their own personal style. Specially for the event, I went with a beautiful head to toe MANGO outfit. It was very romantic and soft, perfect for spring: a sheer printed blouse with a blush pink ballerina skirt. It was the first thing I tried on when I went in a few days in advance to pick out my outfit and right away, I knew it was the special outfit to wear that night.

I had the lovely MANGO film crew there to videotape me at the event. They were so much fun and I felt totally comfortable in front of the camera. I did interviews throughout the night, as well as got in footage with the guests! It was such a blast. We had a ton of laughs. So many of the guests got dressed in MANGO looks and got their picture taken, to enter the $500 raffle! (Congrats to my lovely blog reader, Jennifer, for winning!)

I ended the evening with a performance, singing and playing my guitar. I did one song, and everyone wanted to hear more, and so I went ahead and sang another one. I loved performing for everyone live. It was such a special part of the night. I’m a bit nervous to see it on video, but also very excited. It was such a wonderful evening and I have give a big thank you to MANGO and Marie Claire magazine for giving me this opportunity. To be a part of the MANGO brand has been a total dream come true. It was one night I will never forget! Thanks to everyone who came out! xx
