Oh yeah it’s very, very cold in London, so probably I will wear this puffy red vest with fury neck in here as well, although I won’t be walking on the white streets of Colorado. This is my last outfit from my time at the mountains -I wanted to introduce you to one of my Christmas presents from my mom, this Hugo Boss bright and very warm piece, which I combined with a pair of polka dot jeans, simply, keeping warm! What do you wear to keep warm and cool?
Si, está haciendo mucho, mucho frio en Londres, así que probablemente me ponga este chaleco rojo aquí también, a pesar de no estar caminando por las calles cubiertas de nieve de Colorado. Este es mi último look de mis días en las montañas, en el que quería introducirles uno de mis regalos de Navidad de mi mamá, esta pieza colorida y caliente de Hugo Boss, la cual combiné con unos pantalones de lunares, simplemente abrigandome del frío! Tu, qué llevas para mantenerte cool y abrigada en estos dias de frio?
I was wearing–> Red vest: Hugo Boss; Jumper: Moncler; Jeans: Else; Boots: Report; Beanie: H&M
It is no secret that British fashion has been embraced by the world and the entire industry in the past year, I would say that after the Royal Wedding, British talents started to invade boutiques, red carpets and high streets worldwide. So this was a great year for it to be my first time at the British Fashion Awards ceremony, which took place at The Savoy Theatre last night. I must say that I have never been somewhere with so many celebrities at the same place, every British designer I truly admire was there and my beloved Mexican actress Salma Hayek too, so I did enjoy it to its best. Congratulations to all the winners and to the amazing Spanish shoe god Manolo Blahnik who received a very special recognition. Stella McCartney was awarded twice, including designer of the year after all the excitement of London Olympics 2012; Cara Delevingne, who in the latest season hit the catwalk over 30 times, won model of the year; and Alexa Chung won ‘British Style’ for the third time; when receiving the award she said: ‘I now live in New York and sometimes get homesick, so it’s great to know that I still get this in here.’
It was a bit of a hazard to catch up with the event straight from the office. Imagine those movie scenes where she changes in the taxi? Well, something quite similar happened with me last night! No hair done, make up, nothing, just put the dress on and get in! I love the improvisation sometimes though. Also by the quality of the photos you will see that I didn’t have my proper camera, but here you go, a piece of my night at the Awards.
Great ceremony. Lovely to see the fashion industry gathered at one place, and don’t know if you are a fan, but singer Rita Ora closed the ceremony. See all winners here.
What do you think about the winners?
I am not a girl that loves to get into crowds, jump in front of stages, get sweaty and soaked in beer at concerts, but last night I couldn’t resist the lovely invitation from MeeMee.com and Trace Publicity PR to a promising event for bloggers of pampering, hotdogs, bubbles and a concert at the O2 Brixton Academy to see Crystal Castles.
I must say it was a greaaaaat night, it wasn’t the intensity of getting in the arena, but enjoying the atmosphere and music, plus I loved meeting other London-based bloggers -pleasure girls- and having fun with this lovely PR team.
The night kicked off with delicous hotdogs from Bubbledogs and manicure session by Team Beauty UK, yes I chose a rare green shade from the Autumn/Winter, something different this time! Then went through the MeeMee.com AW12 collection, from which we chose a garment (wait to see mine!) and we could just get ready for a night of hardcore music. We got to Brixton Academy and were welcomed at the VIP bar (which has the coolest guitar lamps) so we let the fun began… It was freaking scary to look down at the crowds through our windows, they were jumping like crazy; I thought I wish I could know a little bit more about this couple from Crystal Castles band so I could join the mood, however, I did like some of their songs and since I now got the album, I might get in the mood too! Any fans out there?
I can only say thank you for a great Saturday night!!!
Alright, I am back on track.
In the past month I have been so busy and working a lot at my job at The Indy, as well as trying not to lose track of FashionInsideOut – reason why you probably haven’t seen much looks lately. In short, my lifestyle has been crazy and my eating too.
Now, I feel like it is time to do something about it, healthier food (not diet, I can’t do diets), and exercise. I kickstarted with Bootcamp Pilates, which I tried yesterday for the first time with the absolutely lovely trainer Maria Alejandra Cruz, who made me work hard (at my right beginners level) but feel gooooood afterwards! While I was exercising with the ‘ring’ and weights on these ‘Reformer machines’, also known as the ‘torture machines’ because of the intense workout, I could only wish that the last 10 seconds of each position just to run faster. I did feel ALL my muscles stretchening and strengthening from the start of the session so I think it could be a great workout to tone up, and instead of the sometimes boring pilates on a mat, this one is way more dynamic, plus if you are in London, here’s Maria in Fulham, she’ll make your session even better.
I have included an activity to my sports routine, but on my plan to get back on track I am desperately seeking a detox plan, but not convinced with eating ONLY green apple for 4 days, if you have any detox (healthy) advice, please shoot! Have a great day…
As I told you last week, the British Red Cross was having an amazing charity event this Tuesday 6th November and it ended up an entire success. As I was volunteering I couldn’t take more pictures or carry my big camera on, however, I did take some shots with my iPhone while I was helping around. And I must say it was a fabulous experience, I was privilege to give a hand to this wonderful charity that after months and months of preparation managed to throw a gala with a Brazil theme, where food, music and entertainment were absolutely excellent. Guests enjoyed an exotic evening of an Issa London Spring/Summer fashion show, a fun auction, a surprise from three musicians, samba, garotas, and a DJ that played great tunes until late night at the beautiful Grand Connaught Rooms. So from FashionInsideOut I would like to say thank you for the experience and very well done for such a wonderful event that will help so much needed people in Syria. Cheers for that!
PS: I was wearing a Liz Black dress and headband was supplied to the volunteers.
It’s Friday! And I am pretty much excited I will be seeing my family and friends in Venezuela this weekend! Yes, flying to my native land tomorrow! I am so very much exhausted with busy days while I try to enjoy much time as possible with my beautiful grandmother, who you saw when I welcomed her to town!
While in London, the weather has been cold and rainy, so yesterday I went for a layered outfit mixing textures: t-shirt, jean shirt, blazer and opened boot trousers… Adding a twist to my style with those trousers and tartan. Oh yes, and the matching hat from Camden Town market! Also, what do you think about the handbag? Modalu beauty from its SS 13 collection!
Hello Monday, Hello October! Let’s give a good start to a new week that kicks off a new month! Hopefully bringing lots of great things… Don’t know if you are experiencing the same, but my end October seems to be that time of the year with lots of changes, starting with the weather of course. But besides that, everything is spinning so fast!
It is also time to welcome the a new season, so let’s take out the knitwear, the coats, the boots, the gloves, the hats and the umbrellas! I took my coat and hat out and combined them with the military trousers – the camouflage and olive green will of course continue to be a trend for me during Autumn! Happy week!
Here’s the second outfit I wore during London Fashion Week SS13. On the day 2 of LFW I wanted to include my brand new Lulu Guinness red lips clutch to any look, so this was the first time I went for it! It worked perfect for a day of shows, including Todd Lynn, followed by an amazing time at the Style Lounge of Fashion Monitor (thanks guys!) and a cool party at night. The look fitted in the different ocassions, as well as I mixed some good old garments in my wardrobe, like that black & white striped blouse with the other pieces. The first kiss.
I was wearing–> Blouse and jacket: Zara; leather skirt: Topshop; Necklace and earrings: H&M; Boots: Aldo, Clutch: Lulu Guinness
