After I shared with you my meeting with Angela Missoni -daughter of Rosita and Ottavio- and the amazing London team at Sloane Street boutique, here is what I wore for a long day that included such a jolly afternoon. So I went for the turquoise again to add a bit of colour to the black black and blacks in my wardrobe. And for the first time you see me with a pencil skirt, which for sure, will come again later with another looks I have already on mind. Actually, short girls like me can wear them too!
Have an amazing weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! Who’s out for a pint of Guinness?
Después de haber compartido mi encuentro con Angela Missoni -hija de Rosita y Ottavio- su team en la boutique de Sloane Street, aqui les muestro el look completo de lo que decidí ponerme para un largo dia que incluía una tarde tan fabulosa! Así que me fui por el turquesa para agregar un poco de color a tanto negro en mi closet. Y por primera vez me ven con una ‘pencil skirt’, la cual seguramente verán muy pronto nuevamente, ya que tengo varios looks en mente con ella. En realidad, mujeres bajitas como yo, pueden usar este estilo faldas!
Que tengas un super fin de semana y Feliz Dia de San Patricio!!! ¿Quién va por una cerveza o la típica Guinness hoy?
Marni invaded the high streets last week with her collection of Marni for H&M, making her brand affordable with some amazing pieces and accessories. I loved the necklaces and got this blue polka jacket on time, when I went online in the early morning while the entire collection kept selling out. In fact, by lunchtime everything was already sold out in stores and online. It just arrived to my door, so get prepared to see this casual jacket, I got the feeling I might add it to more than two or three looks very soon! Did you get anything from the collection?
Probably people think that fashion bloggers are shopaholics, but the truth is that we mostly hunt specific pieces or collections, without going crazy on one day shopping. However, I must admit I do enjoy long days wandering in high streets or even better, at shopping centres, such as London’s Westfield. It’s the perfect ‘massive’ spot to come around during the weekend, not only for the wide variety of labels, including luxury brands at The Village, but also for having everything at one place -indoors- such as UK’s biggest cinema and delicious cafes and restaurants. I didn’t end up with 100 bags as some might think -I used to be shopaholic, but I have learnt to recycle, reuse, mix and match! And of course, when shopping, I like to wear comfortable and light, but stylish outfits. What about you? Are you a shopping spree?
Probablemente piensen que fashion bloggers son ‘shopaholics’, pero la verdad es que buscamos diseños o colecciones específicas, sin volvernos locas/os en un día de compras. Sin embargo, debo confesar que disfruto al máximo pasar horas en los ‘high streets’ o incluso mejor, en los centros comerciales, tal como ‘Westfield’ en Londres. Es perfecto para pasear los fines de semana, no solo por la variedad de tiendas, incluyendo marcas de lujo en The Village, pero también por ofrecer el cine mas grande de UK y deliciosos cafes y restaurants. No salí con 100 bolsas como algunos pensarán -Yo solía ser shopaholic, pero aprendí a reciclar, reusar y combinar! Y por supuesto, me encanta salir de compras con un look cómodo, light, pero con mi estilo. ¿Cómo eres tú cuando vas de compras?
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.
