A Journey to Brasil at Macy's #LLBLOG

Last Thursday night baby daddy and I ventured down to Costa Mesa for the Brasil launch party at Macy's. Macy's has launched this colorful line and as a member of Latina Lifestyle Blogger's #llblog, we were invited to attend as VIP. There was a parade, live band, fashion show, appetizers, drinks, and a lounge area. Macy's did a great job. I can't tell you how much fun it is being in this blogger's collective. It makes me way more social haha. But you guys know, blogging can be a very solitary activity. Not when you join a collective. On with the show.

Me in front of just one of the many displays in Macy's. They are all over the 3 story store. Oh yeah, and this is just the women's and children's Macy's. The mens and home furnishings are across the street! 

The event kicked off with a parade through the mall! Complete with samba dancers from Samba LA and a live batucada! 

I gave baby daddy the hard task of photographing these women in decorated chi chi bras and chonies.

In the VIP lounge sipping on caipirinhas and snacking on nutty Brazilian treats. Arriba #llblog.
Mari, Ilsay, Me, Veronica, and leader of the pack- Ana Lydia

Silly samba dancer, you don't have to bare your midriff to show your belly button, just get pregnant. It shows through all your clothes.

Special thanks to my baby's father for taking pics the whole night. 
dress- Target
blazer- thrifted
shoes- Betsey Johnson ouuuccchhh
headband- I made it, it's for sale in my Etsy shop: here


  1. If I knew being pregnant could make me look half as sexy as you are I think I'd have got knocked up years ago. Those cha-cha ladies are gorgeous but they don't come close to you. That head band rocks. x

  2. I bet you were shaking your nalgas!
    I can watch Carnival dancers all day.
    I swear they have the best cuerpazos and nalgonas ever.
    I love how you were rocking your belly button in turquoise gorgeous vestido.
    Betsy Johnson shoes envy, close up please.
    I like your Brasil headband.

  3. You look so good and those colors are great on you. I'm going to have to borrow that outfit sans shoes because I'm the female version of Big Foot. But do tell, how expensive is this Brazilian collection? Or better yet, how soon will it be on the clearance rack?

  4. Get you with all your fancy VIP events! Woo Hoo! Looking fab in that dress and awesome heels - your bump rocks! :)
