  • GET STRONG | EQUINOX

    As the storms make their way through New York City, I find myself hitting the gym a lot more. I just want to sweat and move. Equinox is my go-to. I have the all-access pass so that I can travel the world and still feel like I’m working out right at home. It has become […]

  • THE LEATHER MIDI

    This week, I’ll be playing catch up and going through the ol’ hard drive and finally sharing the UNPUBLISHED. Months fly by when you’re working your booty off and suddenly you wonder where did the time go? I wore that? When? Like they say, it didn’t happen, unless you grammed it. Team Suarez can never have enough […]

  • BEAUTY AND HOPE | ST. MAARTEN

    I just rediscovered all of these unpublished photos from my latest trip to St. Maarten and couldn’t help but share them during New York City’s coldest weekend to send a little sunshine your way. Boy, I can’t wait until the return of summer. It was June. Butterflies were zooming by everywhere we turned. The orange […]

  • IN A VINTAGE YSL

    Meet my new vintage YSL blazer…a piece I’ll keep forever. I still have so much excitement for consignment shopping. This is a piece I found on Vestiaire. It was shipped in from Paris, and completely worth hours on the site, digging. I grew up going to estate sales back home in Los Angeles so I […]

  • A CUTE COAT MAKES UP FOR COLD WEATHER

    The year is already starting off crazy as I plan with my team for upcoming projects and travel. I haven’t looked away from my calendar all morning. For now, I am in the city, keeping warm, drinking hot cocoa, and taking meetings to kick off the new year. Days are bundled up while my nights […]

  • THAT’S A WRAP 2017

    In 2017, I discovered my strength and my freedom. I finally feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. It’s a powerful thing. There are no more doubts. I wake up feeling the need to grow and discover. In 2018, I look forward to more days of gratitude. More days of thanks. […]

  • STARTING THE NEW YEAR RIGHT | 2018

    2018, let’s be magical. Like with every new year, I begin with a cleanse. First it begins in my home. I go through ever drawer, every cabinet, every unopened box, letter, and email. Organization. Spotless. I’ve got palo santo wood…sage…whatever I can burn to really bring in the positive energies. Out with the old. In […]

  • 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 […]

  • CLASSIC AT THE CARTIER MANSION

    Right now, more than ever, I’m inspired by classic elegance. It’s a look that will never go out of style. This was a killer highlight of the year, working with Cartier throughout 2017. Here I am at the Cartier Mansion on 5th Avenue just before the space became open to the public, but only for […]

  • DECEMBER IN LOS ANGELES

    I just spent over a month in Los Angeles and I couldn’t be happier. When NYC gets cold, I just hop on a plane home to the west coast to take the load off. It’s my time to disconnect, and it’s certainly a luxury. After what felt like the craziest and most exciting work year, […]
