May must have been my lucky month of the year because I had the pleasure to experience things that I am most passionate about. For starters, I was able to visit the homeland once again and be with my wonderful family and amazing boyfriend. Secondly, I got to go on a three-day vacation while on vacation to a IberoStar Resort & Spa in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic with the hunny. Lastly and most exciting, I believe the cherry on top to my whole trip was the coincidence that Fashion Week in DR was staged in the exact resort where I was staying in.

It is an amazing feeling for me being that I am Dominican and a Fashionista at heart, to see my country support such a great event that is very well- known all over the world. RDFW2013 was 5 days long filled with awesome fashion, art, culture,performances and local and international celebrities. Oh and HOT HOT HOT MODELS !!! Although I only arrived in time for the last day, I still got to view a few of the designer collections and the finale of Men Universe Model Pageant.

Since it was an extremely long day and I took endless pictures I will be separating this event into two posts. I will preview all the designer collections on this post as part one and part two will be all about sexy boys and the pageant they competed in. Girls I suggest you follow the blog so you can receive the post by e-mail. Trust you do not want to miss it !

All the pictures posted on my blog were taken by me with my iPhone5. Lets just say I may not be a photographer but this phone takes great photographs. I am really content with switching over to Apple. I will let the photographs I took speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy them!

With the súper hot weather and thunderstorm that occurred in between shows, I had to do a double change. I wore these two outfits which were extremely fashion appropriate and super comfortable. I call it Resort Ready Wear, lol.

I have to thank him for making our mini vacation a total success! Not only did I get to attend this event, but I got to attend with him. It made me happy knowing that I can share my passion with him and most of all that he can enjoy it as well. Thanks babe for being there and watching almost naked sexy boys with me. I love you <3
