Fresh Blooms

Hi everyone! I wanted to show you a look I wore to a tea party a few weeks ago. This dress caught my eye not only for its beautiful florals but also for its stylish design. Ruffles and flirty sleeves are amongst the chicest trends of the moment, and this dress combines them both. At the risk of being an overwhelming mishmash of frills and flowers, the dress somehow pulls the jumble together in a rather harmonious way. However not wanting to push the limit too much, I turned to a more demure make up look with a nude lip shade, and neutral accessories. Still, the look could work well with bold colour shoes (think bright blue or coral). I hope...

A take on linen

Hi guys! Here is another of the beautifully tailored pieces of our colletion Borneo by Lumi. This one actually was designed to be a linen suit, with straight leg trousers and a vest top. However, I thought it would be nice to show the versatility of the top by combining it with a pair of dark jeans. The fan-like clutch and the geometric earrings are also some of the pieces we have at Borneo, both by Colombian designers.  xx A Hola a todos. Aquí les muestro otra de las piezas de Borneo by Lumi. Este top en realidad lo diseñamos como parte de un traje de lino, con unos pantalones rectos que tenían el mismo detalle de la costura vista a los...

That’s a Wrap!

On my latest trip to London, I didn't have much time for shopping -or budget, for that matter-, so I decided to spend the little time and money I had, wisely. Topshop is definitely one of my go to English brands, and within Topshop's lines, their Boutique collection has got to be one of my favourites! I love its chic, minimalistic sense of style, and its good quality. Although the tags feel a bit pricey at times, its fashion driven designs make it worth the investment. This navy skirt, was the result of a long and, apparently, fruitless hunt for one. Since the wrap skirt trend hit the runways, I fell for it, and after looking for the perfect one for...

A Lifesaver

_MG_0696

Hi guys! I love minimal vests. They happen to be a very classy way of dressing an outfit up. A few times, vests have actually been my life savers. I tend to find myself jumping from a long styling day, or even from the gym, to an evening event that requires a more formal dress code. In such cases, I have discovered that, no matter what I’m wearing underneath, throwing a sleek vest on top, and swapping my flats for a pair of stilettos will always do the trick! So I def want to highlight the importance of having such staple garments in your wardrobe.  Believe me, you will thank me!

Flare!

_MG_4539
Through the years, I have come to understand how important it is to know yourself, not only emotionally but in each and every way. It is important to know what color suits you, what shape is more flattering on you, what trends you can and should try. This is the way you can guarantee that your look will always stay on point. In this sense, correct me if I am wrong, but I find that A-line mini skirts are one of my fortes. Albeit it being very simple, there are certain details that make this look work: the flared sleeves, the snake print sling backs, the red nails, the denim… It is all about working with the simplicity of it. 

I hope you all have a great weekend ahead!

Milkshake & Fries

Hi guys! To be completely honest, I am not used to wearing power suits. I know, right?! A bit shocking… The thing is there is something imposing about power suits, which is really the same reason they give off a strong look. A woman that knows how to wear one is also a woman who is confident, and who is not afraid of being the center of attention. She is a woman that conveys a fearless personality, which is sexy AF! So yes, they are a tremendous statement to wear, and if you dare to do it, believe me, it will be a transforming experience. I wore this black and white printed suit a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it was a total hit! The dashes of red on the earrings, the bag and the lips were the right choice to pull the look together. I hope you guys like it!

Oh!…A small tip: if you don’t feel like risking it that much with print, try a more demure version of the power suit in a neutral solid colour.

Have a great day and dare to suit up!

Black Fringe

In my opinion, one can never have too many little black dresses. This one is perfect for a chill weekend in town. I paired it with pewter sandals and a statement top handle bag.

Green Walls

Have I ever told you that I was once obsessed with interior design?
I would spend hours watching Divine Design and Design on a Dime yearning over the breathtaking transformations, and desiring to one day create sickly beautiful ambiances as the ones that Candice Olson so effortlessly delivered. As life happened, my career steered on a different path, but my appreciation and love of masterful interiors has never left me. I have to say, this is probably one of the reasons why, Lobby, a chic restaurant in the heart of San Salvador, has quickly become one of my favourite places to go to. So don’t be surprised if you see me drinking a few cocktails, or having a big mouthful of their succulent hummus and muhammara any time soon!

Happy Tuesday sweethearts!

Lace Beauties

_MG_3076

About a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to create an outfit with these gorgeous, lace ankle booties. I was told that because they were such a fashion statement, it would be harder for people to visualize them in their wardrobes. I immediately jumped, psyched at the thought of it. I loved the shoes the moment I spotted them, and I already had an avalanche of ideas on how to wear them. 

The easiest way of wearing them is letting all of the eyes immediately fall on them, by leaving your legs bare skin. Wear them with a mini dress, skirt, or shorts for maximum showcase. You can always also wear them with skin tight jeans, or if you don’t dare to actually bring everyone’s attention to them, combine them with straight leg or flared trousers.
