The French Connection monochrome dress

By August 21, 2014 OUTFITS 1

front2

Let’s take a break from the sunny Ibiza posts (there’s still a few on its way!). This time I come with a cool black and white dress that reminds me of Chanel’s spring/summer 2014 fashion show inspired in art. Less colourful, more affordable -obvs- but it still looks like someone has taken a paint brush and began use it on a white dress.

This monochrome dress from French Connection is so versatile that I thought I could wear it to anything and with anything! A big plus, is that it’s comfortable and fits nicely, well that’s usually the case with FCUK dresses -at least for me. For this look I went for a casual day at the office and as it’s getting a bit chilly here in London, I had to compensate the bared legs with a cosy jumper, and I couldn’t think of a better option than this oversized knitted cardigan in pink! Yes, pink. And well, my red crush of the moment, the bright Disco Gucci bag.

Ibiza part 2: Sa Punta pier

By August 18, 2014 OUTFITS 1, Travels

sa-punta-outfitWelcome back to a bit more of Ibiza… When we took a break from the sun, we were craving a food experience, so we got in the hunt for nice place around and we accidentally found this hidden spot called Sa Punta, located in the highest point of the Talamanca Bay. A lovely restaurant with a pier just in front of it. We got inside and the cutest boutique welcomed us (I was seriously wanting the entire shop – So many colours – it was so Ibiza, so chic, yet so hippie! But I really couldn’t justify a shopping spree…) We sat down, enjoyed fresh sea food while listening to the chill out tunes of a live DJ, and contemplated the fantastic view! With the sun shining, the pier was, of course, subject of photos and even some hot yoga positions. Just scroll down to get my point. Happy Monday!

I WAS WEARING–> Skirt: ZARA / Top, bikini top and earrings (old): H&M / Sunglasses: CARTIER VINTAGE

And so we chilled out in the food highlight of the trip, not so much for the food, but for the little cute place and dock we’ve just discovered!

Ibiza Part 1: Formentera

By August 11, 2014 Travels

formentera-jump

Hellou people!! It’s been a long while and how much I’ve missed this spot…

But it’s all been for a good reason; I’ve been working very hard on The Independent’s fashion page and I invite you all to visit (do tell me what you think!). I’m really enjoying it and long working hours have left me limited time to share the love in here. However, I won’t disappear and I will stay around for weekly content and catch ups! I might be sharing updates of the best articles we covered on The Indy online over the week! How does that sound?

In the meantime, I have some nice shots tu share from a place I recently fell in love with… Ibiza! Last week I came back from a very very short, but greeeat holiday. Formentera stole my heart and I just can’t wait to go back. This first post is packed with the day that kicked off a much needed girls trip to the Spanish island. We rented a private boat to get to the prettiest beaches far from Ibiza and so we head to Formentera and its surroundings. And wow! What a voyage to a magical world it was.It’s surrounded by what they call “calas” which means creeks. Imagine hidden places surrounded by big rocks and some green. Hues of blue and turquoise water. Stunning…

And yes, I was there on the week that felt the whole world was there (when all celebs went to Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci’s star-studded party). I even got to see Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom. More on that later.

I hope I can transport you to the beach with this stunning place. Have a lovely Monday!

Summer Series with Amex: Clean Bandit

By July 23, 2014 Events, OUT N' ABOUT

20140720-141103-51063087.jpg Last weekend the wonderful team of Amex treated me to one cool Saturday on a beautiful summer day in London. And that was a trip to one of the top music festivals in the capital, this time at the iconic Somerset House, Summer Series. If I wasn’t a fan before, I might be now. What cool band! Their Rather Be tune is and will certainly be on repeat all week… The event started and ended amazingly well at the Amex VIP bar, where I met the lovely band after their show. So whatever you call their very unique music, which involves a wide variety of music instruments  conservatoire garage? Baroque house? The classical dance sound of Clean Bandit is firing up this year.

Clean Bandit is part of the stellar line-up for this year’s Summer Series at Somerset House with American Express.

By July 7, 2014 Events

20140706-015359-6839712.jpg

This weekend Steve Madden treated us to an epic time at London’s annual Wireless Festival. Wearing everything Steve Madden, we hit the grounds of Finsbury Park just to have a blast and dance at the tunes of Iggy Azalea, Tinie Tempah, Pharrell Williams and Kanye West. Boom! We were treated at the VIP area, which I must say it’s 100% WORTH IT!
