With the new year around the corner, I have been thinking about my goals and new year resolutions for 2016. One of the items on my list is to take the blog to a whole new level and make it the best it can be. My goal has always been to be a successful woman in life. Part of being a successful woman in the business force is to dress the part, which is why I am excited to share with you eShakti. I styled my look today very classy and business appropriate. For those of you unfamiliar with eShakti, it is women's clothing line tailored just for you!
eShakti creates beautiful pieces from dresses, jackets, and more--all to your measurements. Say goodbye to struggling to find clothing-pieces in your size! With eShakti all you do is choose your piece or pieces and enter your measurements. One of my favorite parts about eShakti is that their pieces are made of high-quality fabrics for great prices. Usually when you go to buy a tailored item, you end up paying ridiculous prices and usually the fabrics are not even to parr. With eShakti you get the best of all worlds: quality, price, and style!
I love my dress by eShakti, to say the least. It is comfortable and looks great on. I recently wore it to give a speech/presentation and can't even begin to tell you how much everyone loved it. They loved it even more when I told them the prices. It is a win-win! They have a great selection too. From work-looks to party pieces. With Christmas right around the corner, now is the perfect time to clean out your closet and get your measurements down so you can order your custom-piece! To learn more about eShakti visit them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
Ready to look at customization in a whole new way? Thank you for stopping by the blog on these rainy Tuesday. Have a great afternoon!! XO
Thanksgiving is only two days away! I am so excited to spend time with my family and dear friends. I am also in a great mood about this weather. Maybe now we Miami-people will finally experience just a little taste of fall on Thanksgiving. That is one thing I am very grateful for!
I found this amazing dress from Rachel Roy at Macy's and instantly fell in love. I love that this high-low dress is flattering and simple. Oh and did mention the dress has pockets!! I know it is a dress made in heaven. What I love most about my look is that you can dress it up or dress it down. I dressed it up for Thanksgiving so I popped on a pair of heels and lots of bling! If you are having a casual Thanksgiving just add some flats and a solid cuff.
The dress comes in tons of colors from orange to black. I chose the navy color because navy is one of my favorite colors and it is easy to pair accessories and shoes with. You can shop this dress below! Trust me, even if you don't wear it to Thanksgiving, you need this dress in your closet. It is a real winner!
I hope that my Thanksgiving outfit gives you some inspiration and I have sold you on this amazing number. I am grateful for all my amazing readers, I would not be where I am today without all of you and your constant support to me and It's a PAshion. I wish you all tons of love and endless blessings this Thanksgiving! XO
Happy Tuesday! I am so happy it is fall, but unfortunately Miami has not gotten the memo. Honestly, I do not know how much longer I can handle this heat. Ugh! Those of you who follow me on Instagram, know I am absolutely addicted to my ripped-jeans by Sneak Peek. Nothing is better than them. I love that ripped-jeans can be for during the summer or fall. Oh and the best part is they feel like sweats (that is how soft they are!)
I love combining neutrals. This pleated top was one of my fabulous finds at Marshalls. I am a major fan of pleats whether it be on a dress, shirt, or skirt. Pleats are always in season! Pairing this neutral blush-beige shirt with my ripped jeans was a must. To add a more "autumn-touch" I added this Steve by Steve Madden pointed flats and my latest splurge, my gray Rebecca Minkoff tote. I purchased this fabulous tote at Nordstrom Rack for a price that was irresistible. I am always in for a good deal!
I really love creating fall outfits by mixing neutrals with jeans. Adding a mix of light and dark neutrals is the best way to get an autumn look while living in Miami. As always, thank you for stopping by the blog and as usual, you can shop the post below.

Ready for your school or university's homecoming events? I know I am ready to show some #PantherPride thanks to brappz. Brappz are fun, colorful rubber-bands paired beautifully designed hooks that will make any look of yours POP. Oh and did I mention there are plenty of ways to use brappz? You can wear brappz as jewelry (i.e. bracelets, necklaces), bra-straps, and shoe laces. The possibilities with brappz are endless!
As you all know, as a college student, I love finding products for a great price and multi-purpose. I can wear brappz so many various ways and mix-and-match hooks. I styled mine (above) for the FIU game, by sporting my school colors blue and gold. These bracelets not only show my school spirit, but they are also light, so they don't bother or weigh down my arm.
Shop my brappz below and share with me how you would style your brappz! I will be sharing more ways to wear/style brappz throughout the next few weeks so be sure to subscribe and follow me on Instagram (@ITSAPASHIONBLOG). Thank you for stopping by the blog on this #TGIF!

It's time to roll up the beach towels, box up the bikinis, and set your alarm clocks to a time way earlier than, dare I say, 12:00 o'clock in the afternoon. It is back to school! Even though me being the Miami girl I am wishes I could spend my days sleeping-in, shopping/lunching, and tanning by the pool, it is time to return to reality.
Today, I hosted the Back to School Fashion Show held by Blow N Dry Salon. As I spoke on the mic, for the very first time as a blogger, I realized that just because summer is over doesn't mean it means back to a "dull reality". I had lots of fun hosting, showing off new back to school trends as well as hairstyles created by the amazing hairstylists over at Blow N Dry
The event was a lot of fun. I got to taste some delicious cupcakes and see both little girls and juniors rule the runway. The girls modeled their school uniforms and clothing from Joy Boutique. Some of the little girls wore jewelry created by TAudrey in her Lil Miss Miami collection. Love it! I was so happy to be a part of this incredible event and I can't wait for this to be a yearly thing. Thanks to Jackie and the girls over at Blow N Dry for letting me host the fashion show and for putting on a terrific event.
So who knows where I'll be hosting next, this Miami blogger is up for whatever comes next. Watch out Miami, Ash is here to stay!
It is the most wonderful time of the year! It is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, also known as the shop-a-holics dream come true. For those of you who know me, you know that Nordstrom is like my second home. I just love everything about Nordstrom and their selections (plus, the silver bags capture my heart).
I was raised by a fashionable group of hunters. Sale hunters. The great women in my family have taught me to be a smart shopper and look for the greatest deals and steals. So the second is see a "sale" sign in a window, I am instantly drawn in. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an awesome way to stock up on the higher-end scale of your wish-list, without hurting your wallet (too much!)
I went through the preview to the sale and chose these items. The Anniversary Sale officially opens on Thursday, July 16th, and picked some of the top contenders. I love Nordstrom and cannot wait for the sale. Hope you all enjoyed my picks and share with me in the comments section below what you think or what you buy. Happy Shopping!
Guess what Sunday is? Mommy's Day!
Whether you call her mommy, mom, or mum, we all love ours just the same!
Mothers are not just the women who gave us life, but also the women who complete our life. I have been blessed with fabulous aunties and grandmas as well. To share the love this Mother's Day, I created this gift guide to help you navigate your way to the perfect present.
The first is definitely one of my favorites, it is a TAudrey necklace that is gorgeous and incredibly chic. Another great gift is Daisy, a sweet fragrance via Marc Jacobs. The scent is fresh, floral, and fun. My third snag is Kate Spade jelly flats. I love these because they are perfect to run errands, hit pool parties, and just go to Publix in. These shoes are adorned with a bow, which adds the perfect elegance. Fourth, a Henri Bendel phone case which will give you lady's iPhone the perfect kick of color. And hello, can you ever go wrong with Henri Bendel? No.
Getting to the second row, another one of my absolute favorites is this Tory Burch wrap bracelet. Other than being a mega fan of the wrap bracelets and Tory Burch, they are two-tone and modern. I love the fact that the bracelet is black and white so it will pretty much match with everything. My next item is perfect for the woman on-the-go, these Nike sneakers are super comfy and sporty chic. Seventh, is a boho scarf that is a lightweight and simple way to add a pop to a plane outfit this summer from Super Dry. Last, but definitely not least, is this fabulous camera case for those women in your life always capturing precious moments from Accessorize.
