lilliana of says: to the max!

lilliana of the cheap chicas guide to style fame is one of our go-to stylists and part of the casa naranja family. needless to say she is ridiculously stylish and fabulous. We just HAD to share her latest post “to the max!” which has some must-have finds!

no matter what your style, you really can find a maxi dress to suit you! if you’re feeling a little nicole richie, this boho-chic style from forever 21 is perfect and it’s only $26!

for something a little more sophisticated that you could wear on a date or even to an afternoon wedding, this tiered number from banana republic will easily become a staple in your summer wardrobe…just add a great jewelry and voila, multiple outfits!

finally, i love nothing more than a one-shoulder dress…it’s sexy yet understated and in this swiss dot print, kind of sweet! i’ve had the hardest time finding a one shoulder so i was so excited to find this dress for only $59.
now if you’re petite like me, my suggestion is to belt all of these so you don’t get lost under all that fabric and when you can, wear them with wedges or a casual heel to get some height!

beauty must have! pure grace fragrance by philosophy

"pure grace is the clean smell of soap and water; the memory of fresh air woven into a set of crisp, white cotton sheets; a cold deep breath on a snowy winter night; the best summer morning you have ever known; the one white t-shirt that feels better than all the rest"

what's your travel sign? let nextpedition predict yours.


it's no big surprise that I scored 96% poshaholic /95% glamologist which translates into equally posh and glam! judging from my results i suspect the first stop on my carefully curated nextpedition itinerary would be no other than the como shambhala retreat at parrot cay in turks and caicos.   it combines nature – 1000 unspoilt acres, including a mile-long powdered beach – with understated style, cosseting service and smiling staff.  "ohh amex, you know me so well." whats your sign? naturally, you can tell me on facebook. oh please who are you kidding?!? you know you want everyone to know that you are officially a glamologist, or a poshaoholic or a detourist or a …… umm think of the status updates you can post..
