EVERYBODY JUMP! Check out the new design

By April 8, 2014 Inspiration

output_Buh7aS (1)

Alright, I’m listening to the tune Jump of Kriss Kross (listened at the bottom of the post) as I write this post. It’s not any old school, it’s the coolest old school! Thing is when I’m here, seating in front of my computer and thinking only in FashionInsideOut this is the kind of mood that comes to the table. Well, truth is that I’m in one of those stages of life when we all face a career crisis and start thinking if we have fulfilled our dreams, and what should we do next.

I feel a very lucky girl to be working at The Independent newspaper, really lucky. And will also be grateful to that University teacher who motivated me to continue this blog – I LOVE this space too much, and although I’ve decided to continue with both, job and hobby, I thought the blog needed a boost, if not a drastic change to see what happens next! It happened a couple of weeks ago, but I never made t official here. So, tell me! What do you think about the new fresh design? Do you like the slider? The new sections (Out n’ About, Date With Mum, Lifestyle, Travel etc)? Yay or nay? I’m planning to change some other bits and bobs, but here’s the first phase of the new image. What else can I improve for you and what else would you like to see in this space? Tell me all!

Ok, estoy escuchando la cancion Jump de Kriss Kross (escuchala al final del post) mientras escribo este post. No es cualquier #tbt, sino uno muy cool! Es que cuando estoy aqui, en frente de la computadora, pensando solo en FashionInsideOut ese es el humor que viene a la mesa! El caso es que estoy en una de esas etapas de la vida que te pones a pensar sobre tu carrera, lo que has logrado y lo que quieres lograr y cual es el siguiente paso.

Me siento realmente afortunada de poder trabajar en The Independent newspaper aqui en Londres. Y siempre estare agradecida con aquel profesor que me motivo a continuar este blog – me encanta este espacio demasiado! Desde el principio he decidido continuar con los dos, el trabajo y el hobby, pero sentia que al blog le hacia falta un cambio fresco, una nueva cara! Asi que ocurrio hace un par de semanas pero no le habia dedicado un post oficial al nuevo diseno. Que te parece?Te gusta el slider? Las nuevas secciones (Out n’ About, Date With Mum, Lifestyle, Travel etc)? Otro cambios vienen en camino tambien. Pero que crees que podria mejorar? Que quisieras ver mas por aqui? Read More

Out n’ About: Up for Mexican food? Lupita restaurant is my choice

By March 9, 2014 OUT N' ABOUT

beer-pacifico

I’ve decided to include a new section in the blog, a space to share some good spots to eat and have fun in London, and why not, abroad too. Welcome to “Out n’ About”!

I will open this space with my ever favourite Mexican restaurant in London town, Lupita. Located between Charing Cross and Embankment, and having opened a second restaurant in East London, this place will delight your palate with trully Mexican flavour and vibe, at least that’s what my Mexican BF and friends say… But if you’re not Mexican, you can def notice that it’s not tex-mex.

Not only the food is delicious, but the atmosphere is full of life and the traditional cocktails and Margaritas will be enough reason to keep you smiling throughout the night.

You can kick-off the dinner with a cold drink, in fact they say there’s not better appetizer than a cold beer, a Michelada, Chelada or a perfectly-made Margarita… Read More

Peter Pilotto for Target via Net-A-Porter

By February 27, 2014 NEW IN

pilottoxtarget4

Peter Pilotto’s collection for Target was quite a success. Some of you may had written on your diaries the date the collection came out, earlier this month. The big news? For the first time it would be shipped worldwide through Net-A-Porter, however, I must say I was  a bit disappointed that the online luxury store didn’t have the entire collection, but just a selection, with almost all of them sold out within hours. My wishlist wasn’t there, obvs, all the items were available only at the American store, Target. Leaving that on the side, I still wanted a piece or two from these bargains! Who would miss a Peter Pilotto design for such price tag? Not many people, of course. It’s that same effect of some designers’ collaborations with H&M. Do you remember the latest success of Isabel Marant’s collection for the swedish high-street shop? We all go gaga when  shopping our favourite’s designs for a bargain.

Anyhow, I got hold of a couple of pieces, this being a shirt and transparent clutch form the iconic print from the capsule collection. But searching the web, I just realised that lots of the garments are back in stock on Net-A-Porter! So it’s not too late to grab yours! I already spotted a few favourites that are now available – and not for long!

LONDON FASHION WEEKEND: ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL FASHIONISTAS

By February 24, 2014 DATE WITH MUM, Events, LFW

somerset-house-fashion

Another London Fashion Weekend to talk about… I’ve been attending practically every year.

Taking place at the iconic building of Somerset House, right after the autumn/winter 2014 shows and presentations, the the accessible event for all those Londoners that fancy getting in the hectic atmosphere of London Fashion Week took over. Not only that, you can shop designers clothes, shoes and jewellery for great prices (eg. French Sole ballerinas, usually at a price around £180, were all at £65), enjoy beauty treatments, seat on the front row of the catwalk that presents the trends of the current season (spring/summer 2014) and best of all, you can have a girly date, with a glass of champagne in hand, with your girlfriends. I went with my partner in crime of the blog, my mom, who wore an extra cool sweatshirt (see similars here)!

Anyhow, we of course jump in for any photobooth, so we did at Maybelline’s space wearing some of their senseless accessories, and then jumped in the Canon 360 studio, an uber cool spot where you can see your shot 360 degrees, see below to understand what I mean! You might wonder ‘how is this accesible to me?’. Well, tickets are available to purchase from their website and the price range varies depending on what you want (only shopping, shopping + catwalk, or shopping + catwalk + goodie bag). Alternatively, you could be the lucky one that wins tickets, like my reader Katherine, who was the winner of the giveaway on my blog I ran in association with one of the event’s sponsor, Amex.  Check out my previous LFWeekend experiences HERE.

Next season (September 2014), spoil yourself and plan a date with friends to London Fashion Weekend… You will enjoy it to the full!

Meanwhile, watch an exclusive video produced by Amex for FashionInsideOut with British TV Presenter and BBC Radio DJ Lauren Laverne, who brings you a sneak peek from behind the scenes, revealing the fashion trends that will dominate the high street in the coming months and finding out how you can incorporate them into your wardrobe. Enjoy!
