I wanted to show you this Twenty8Twelve scarf, which has recently join my wardrobe! It is literally my first piece from Sienna Miller’s label that has invaded stores and everyone is going about. Loved the violoncello and the whole print combination! And I really don’t want to call my pants ‘legging’ -I actually really really deslike all sort of them and their material- but this Lilly Lou one is cool and different with those studs coming from the bottom upwards, I bought them about two years ago on one of those days of online shopping. Oh, do you remember those patent leather brogues sent from Madrid? I love them, but I like them better with skinny capris, which I mostly can’t wear on freezing days. So they were perfect for a not so chilly day and a casual look with an unusual piece on me … Have a great day!!!
It’s Friday again… so quick! Remember I wanted this week to be different? Well, for me it has been indeed extremely different, don’t know if I can call it a good week, but definitely a different one; busy, exciting, scary, happy and sad. How have your working days been so far? Did you follow Paris Fashion Week shows/collections? What about Louis Vuitton AW12 show sending you back to the glamour of travelling on trains? Platforms and luggage luxury to its best. And for a deep breath before the weekend kicks off, I leave you with this ready-to-party outfit I wore for a special birthday, but broke in a kids’ carrousel and wheel park just before it. Happy Friday!!!
WOW at this wood and leather boots I spotted at Alain Quilici’s AW12 showroom at Somerset House last month. This Tuscany-born designer, based in Paris, launched his label only two years ago, with unique aesthetic designs, perfect finish, and different, quizzing and geometric forms. Quilici uses a restricted palette of neutral colours including black, grey and white -perfect in a way, women’s palette during AW is quite restricted after all. Transformation, morphing and evolution are his constant themes that seek the anatomy of his booties, heels and wedges, just like this amazing pair with platform I felt in love with.
We are back on Monday and I really want this week to be different, break the routine and make it a bit more exciting. I have had two great weeks so far and want to keep rolling with you and Fashion Inside Out. So, as I rarely cover men’s fashion, I will kick-off the week with something rare in here then. I have put together the highlights of LFW Menswear Day AW12, which usually closes the LFW madness. Talented and new designers presented their collections of classic colours and cuts, mix of textures, goose jackets, blazers and even crazy prints.
I must admit that my two conclusions on the male models were: They are waaay better looking (too obvious?) and way less serious -at least these ones. On my side, I need to manage the time to study for the driving licence theory test, does that sounds exciting? Not really…until I finally see myself driving on the right side. How are you starting your week? Make it great and different!
Volvemos al Lunes, y en realidad quiero que esta semana sea diferente, romper la rutina y hacerla un poco más emocionante. He tenido dos semanas excelentes y quiero mantenerlas contigo y Fashion Inside Out. Así que, como raramente cubro la moda masculina, voy a comenzar el Lunes con algo diferente. Hice un resumen del LFW Menswear Day AW12, el cual normalmente cierra la locura del LFW. Nuevos talentos presentaron sus colecciones de colores opacos, cortes clásicos, combinación de texturas y telas cálidas, chaquetas de pluma de ganso, blazers y hasta impresiones únicas.
Debo admitir que mis dos conclusiones sobre los modelos fueron: Ellos lucen muuucho mejor (obvio?) y qué poca seriedad -al menos los que estaban allí. Por mi lado, tengo que conseguir el tiempo para estudiar para mi examen teórico de la licencia de conducir, suena emocionante? En realidad no….hasta que me vea manejando/conduciendo en lado derecho. Tu como empiezas tu semana? Que sea fabulosa y diferente!
It has been raining literally all day, so it makes the Sunday even more lazy than usual (although I work on Sundays). So, I woke up thinking I want to be somewhere warm and sunny right now… trying to be realistic, somewhere close, because to be honest, for me, there’s no better place than Los Roques in Venezuela, P-A-R-A-D-I-SE. However, I thought of this amazing spot I went to last year in Canary Islands. After getting a bus from the centre of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and a long walk, I ended up in this wonderful turquoise beach in this place called Puerto Rico. Loved it! … Just to shine our Sunday a bit on this side of the world.
Ok, the weekend began with a heavy rain followed by an amazing sunshine … So meanwhile, I’ll share a girls day out with my mom and a good friend during London Fashion Weekend. Every season, after London Fashion Week, every lady can actually buy tickets to visit Somerset House, enjoy a catwalk showing the current season’s collection -SS12 in this occasion,- designers’ shopping (where you could spend countless HOURS, looking around and fitting) and fun Diet Coke, Canon, Sharpie pens and Elle spots. Just so we all can get a fashion week feeling from Thursday to Sunday. I went on Friday (Saturdays are cooler though) with these two special ladies and here I put together a bit of my experience… Enjoy your weekend, it goes by so quickly!
Ok, el fin de semana en Londres comenzó con una lluvia, seguida de un día soleado … Pero mientras, comparto una salida de mujeres con mi mamá y una gran amiga en el London Fashion Weekend. Cada temporada, despues del London Fashion Week, cualquiera puede comrpar tickets para visitar Somerset House, disfrutar del catwalk de la temporada actual -Primavera/Verano 12 en este caso,- ofertas de diseñadores y puestos divertidos de Diet Coke, Canon, Shapie pens y Elle. Solo para que todas vivan la semana de la moda de Jueves a Domingo. Yo fui un Viernes (aunque los Sábados son mejores) y aqui les muestro un poco de nuestra experiencia…. Que disfruten el fin, pasa muy rápido!
It’s Friday!!! And…Guess what? Believe it or not I just thought of that song that was hated by the entire world… “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday…” Rings a bell? Yes, Rebecca … Black? Poor girl! Anyways, talking about music, this outfit might be a bit of rock & roll with those studded boots, but the mood was actually more Lou Bega’s Mambo #5 song, don’t know why, it’s just the happy feeling, so it is a perfect mood to share on Friday isn’t it?? I did have fun with this shoot… Have a superb weekend!
Es Viernes!!! Pero adivinen que? Acabo de pensar en esa canción que el mundo entero odia: ”It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday…” Les suena conocida? Si, Rebecca… Black no? Pobre! … Por cierto, hablando de música, este outfit puede parecer un poco rockerito con esas botas tachonadas, pero en realidad el dia era más la canción de Lou Bega’s Mambo #5, nose por qué, solo es como humor feliz! Perfecto para compartirlo un Viernes no? En realidad me diverti en este shoot… Les deseo un magnífico fin de semana!
I must admit I have no talent in doing braids. I remember when I was at school, I used to ask my ‘talented’ friends to do those amazing fish braids and creative hairstyles, plus I love people doing stuff to my hair (it’s a girls thing I think…) Anyways, that is as far as I can get with plats, floffy and relaxed -also my straight hair doesn’t help. So, as you rarely see me other than with my hair down, I had something slightly different yesterday and just wanted to show it with this outfit. It was indeed a very gray afternoon, but not as cold. So, how’s your week so far? Almost Friday! Wooho!
Debo admitir que no tengo la facilidad de hacer trenzas de pelo. Recuerdo cuando iba al colegio solía pedirle a mis amigas ‘talentosas’ que me hicieran las trenzas de pescado o algo creativo, además de que me encanta que me hagan cosas en el pelo (es cosa de mujeres supongo…) Esto es lo mejor que puedo hacer, suaves y relajadas trenzas -mi pelo liso no ayuda. Y como raramente me ven con otro estilo que mi pelo suelto, aqui les muestro algo diferente con mi outfit de ayer. Fue una tarde gris, pero no tan fria. En fin, como va su semana? Ya casi es Viernes! Woooho!
