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...

New in: One Shoulder Top

The moment I slipped into this outfit, I loved it. It made me feel ready to tackle on anything. I could easily go to work, a morning event, or coffee with friends. The one shoulder top was a real winner for me, and we are seriously considering to produce it in a crisp white version. The splash of color that the sandals and the clutch's tassel add to the look seemed like the perfect way to incorporate an interesting twist. Love, x A Como todas las piezas de Borneo by Lumi, este outfit fue pensado con versatilidad, comodidad y elegancia en mente. Las costuras vistas, uno de los detalles característicos de esta colección, aportan contraste y diseño al mismo tiempo. Como ambas prendas...

Italian Feel

_MG_2984

Hi guys! I loved the easiness of this look: a bare shoulder, a frayed hem, a monochrome palette. It is my perfect combination for a casual work day. Plus my feet appreciate the flat, classic Audrey Hepburn style pumps. I hope you guys like it!

PS: I was so lucky to step into the chic boutique hotel of Il Bongustaio. This petite, 5 room, hotel is a certain oasis in the middle of the city. It transported  me to an Italian villa, with its beautiful gardens, filled with cascading bougainvilleas; its dome shaped hallways, and its marbled floors. A soothing place, that certainly goes well with the italian cuisine served at the, open to all public, next door restaurant.

Cold Shoulder

_MG_7790

Morning everyone! As much as I’m self-conscious about my arms, there is always that urge to wear tops that will allow me to showcase a bit of them. With the pro-shoulder movement we’ve been witnessing in the past seasons, this need is perfectly covered. The super sexy trend allows me to uncover my shoulders without having to unveil my not-so-toned arms. Here is an outfit I wore a little while ago. I hope you guys like it!

L’Oreal’s Experience

_MG_6044
Hi guys! My hair has been particularly hard to handle lately with the humidity, the heat and its length. I have to say it can get a little bit frustrating. A couple of weeks ago, I had the luck of trying L’Oreal’s Steam Pod treatment, which hydrated my hair, removed the its frizz and filled it with life. A total wonder! This was not the first treatment I had, but it surely was a great one. I noticed the difference not only on the day I got it, but after showering a few times as well. If you get the chance, I encourage you to try it too! Here are some shots we took on the day I got the treatment done.

A big hug!

Quick Fix

_MG_6104
Hi everyone! I trust your week is going well!
I have been told many, many times how hard it is to give me a gift. A gift that I will like and cherish. Well, my godmother sure hit the sweet spot when she bought this dress for me! The only reason why I haven’t worn it that much is because it is actually a bit big on me, and I just haven’t come around to tailoring it. However, I like it so much that I have used it a couple of times already. It struck me that wearing a t-shirt or body underneath would be a great solution to my current fitting problem. Add a waist belt to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a pretty cool ensemble. I encourage you all to get a tad creative when fixing these sorts of inconveniences. You never know what good look you can end up with!

Have a lovely weekend!

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.

The key to radical change

_MG_4873

Ever wonder what accessories can do to your outfit? Belting this palm print scarf on top of a green basic shift dress, gave my look a radical change; what could’ve been a boring  ensemble, instantly became a fetching outfit. To create an even more appealing look, I spattered a few more drops of colour by  wearing a pair of burgundy stilettos and a gray top handle bag. 

PS: These are the last pictures I took at Lobby!

Uniqueness

_MG_4569

One of my closest friends got married a few weeks back. I don’t own many gowns, so for this very special occasion I decided to invest in one that would be as unique as possible. I have become very fond of national designers, and last November when I attended MBFDays El Salvador, I spotted the dress that I wanted to wear on such an exceptional night. This Monica Arguedas seemed ideal for two reasons: it was different than what everyone was wearing out here, and the fact that it was a two piece look made it versatile and perfect for wearing to multiple events – a great investment! For the wedding, I actually wore it with a low bun to show off its beautiful back. I hope you like it!
