some like it hot

Here's some Nu Disco for y'all today to get you through the week. Goldroom is my absolute favorite. 

Today, for the first time this year, I saw flowers budding on a tree in my neighborhood. Needless to say, I'm overjoyed. From my complaints in my previous posts, I'm sure you know how unbelievably unbearable this winter was in Boston. So please let me ramble a little bit about how amazing it is to feel the first few hints of Spring a little will you? Here goes: wearing two simple layers has never felt so good, I can actually walk outside without getting goosebumps, I can fully enjoy being outdoors and admire my surroundings, I can order iced coffees, and I can use my phone outside without my fingers feeling like they are about to fall off. To sum it up: I'm happy, and I think the brightness of this outfit (or more so of these hot pink trousers) reflects just that. 

These shots were taken by one of my favorite student photographers, Adris Lozoya, in my newly discovered gem in Boston, Beacon Hill. Seriously, every single street is Instagram-worthy. If you're a Boston newbie and haven't been there, take advantage of this lovely weather we're having and go go go!

In honor of Spring technically (not so much visibly) arriving, I figured it was only appropriate for me to whip out my new baby: my pastel pink blazer. I can't seem to take it off. It's the kind of thing where I wake up in the morning and look at my closet and it just calls my name, and then I proceed to visualize a billion unique outfits with it and mentally justify wearing it 4 times in a row. Folks, the first step is admitting you have a problem. There are just so many things right about it, it's oversized fit, the gentle softness of it's color, and of course, the fact that I purchased it for $2.50 couldn't hurt. It's safe to say that I'm also addicted to these ASOS "Mom Jeans" I'm wearing. Ultra high-waisted, light wash, perfectly torn goodness. These are definitely some transition pieces that were worth the investment. 

I've realized more and more just how the arts (yes, fashion included) inspire one another and feed off of one another. So I've decided to implement a new component to my blog posts. It's nothing mind-blowingly original. Yes, it's been done before and will be continue to be done in the future but nonetheless, I feel like it can add something essential to the posts. So from here on out, drumroll please, I will be adding a song that goes with the theme/vibe of my outfit. If all else fails, at least you've got some decent new tunes to add to your playlist. 

The inaugural song goes to: 

Just a lil dream pop for your ears to feast on :)

once upon a time...

Warning: Things are about to get a little cheesy up on Creative Thirst. If you haven't seen this handsome fellow on the blog yet, let me introduce you to my boyfriend, Javier Moncada. We have been together for almost 1 year and 5 months now and I can truly say that our relationship has restored my faith in true love and happiness. I titled this post once upon a time because our relationship is immensely surreal, it has a fairytale, dreamlike quality to it that I can't get enough of. It's not to say that things don't get difficult, because they do, and things get hard. But our mistakes, faults, and arguments push us forward and allow us to grow stronger and closer to each other. This post is dedicated to him, for always treating me like a princess, for always supporting me and my dreams, and for giving me a little bit of a fantasy in this roller coaster we call life. 

Aside from being awesome, he has a great sense of style too. I admit, sometimes I have to rethink my outfits so that he doesn't always steal the spotlight... and that's saying a lot! Here we both went for a classic, old school inspired look which I hope you'll all enjoy!

coco made me

I woke up to a sunny, 50 degree day in Boston and I just knew I had to get outside. I know the end of winter always seems to loom on by for like ever but its killing me this year. So I really hope more sunny days like today continue coming to brighten things up! Here's another all black outfit featuring my favorite t-shirt at the moment. I think the reason why is self-explanatory. Don't you?

Yet another snowy day in Boston...surprise, surprise! I'm going to be honest with you: it's starting to get really annoying. I've been daydreaming of spring break and being home in 80 degree and sunny weather. How do I manage to get by this dreary weather in the mean time? By breaking out my favorite coats of course! Here's one of my new favorites for many reasons: it's wine color, it's structure and it's warmth! I paired it with a cream colored, elaborately decorated, victorian lace top and my high-waisted black floral engraved pants.

Leather + Tartan

It's safe to say that I've joined the "black is the new black" tribe by wearing all black outfits on a day-to-day basis. Confession: I actually have to force myself to mix it up from time to time to keep things exciting. This time I mixed things up by adding some tartan over an all black ensemble. I've found that the key to wearing all black is to mix textures, so here I'm wearing leather, suede and jersey. Another recent discovery: it's totally acceptable to layer jackets with coats. So as the dreary last few months (sigh) of winter drag on by, you can keep those little tips in mind to keep your outfits fresh.

I'd like to start off by wishing everyone a happy (very) belated New Year. This year I'm determined to improve several areas of my life, one of which just so happens to be the post quality on Creative Thirst! I bought a new, spectacular camera and have proceeded to learn a few photography/photoshop tricks. That would explain the severe quality shift in this blog post as compared to others. I hope it's as noticeable to you as it is to me! The post quality will only increase from here on out, I promise! 

So for this look I went a bit androgynous for a change, taking a few menswear items and appropriating them. The oxfords are mens shoes and I'm convinced the coat is also mens as well. I'm usually not a fan of gray or menswear pieces, for that matter, but I guess this is a sign that my style has matured or evolved, as it does for all of us. Let's see what looks 2014 has in store for us!

dreamin' of a white christmas

It's mid-finals week and I'm swamped with papers, projects, exams and the like and, of course, I'm miserable and looking like a bum in the midst of it all. Yesterday was a defining moment as I realized: what better way to cheer myself up while studying than to actually look good while doing it? So while some indulge in puppy therapy, I indulge in style therapy... and if you're anything like me, you'd take great pleasure doing the same!  Here's a little holiday-inspired look to bring in some Christmas cheer! I've been saving this gorgeous coat for the right outfit and I couldn't be happier with the end result. 

Happy finals and happy holidays to all! xxx
