Off the Shoulder Tag

25 Jul

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...

Colours of Easter

Bare with me a post! I know you are expecting the second high waist jeans look, but it is Easter holidays, and everyone, even me, is hurtling out of the city, and anxiously trading asphalt for sand, and coffees for coconuts. I am not exaggerating when I say that this week will not see me wearing anything but shorts, bathing suits and sandals; if they come with pompoms or tassels, all the better! The days ahead promise a good deal of chilling, and tanning. Hope you have a great holiday! xA Les pido que me aguanten por un post. Sé que estaban esperando ver mi segundo look con high waist jeans, pero Semana Santa en El Salvador es sinónimo de sol y playa. No...

Bare Shoulders

  By now, I have lost count on the amount of times that I have proclaimed our shoulders to be the hottest couple of the moment! Believe me when I say that they are, at the same time, your best allies, and your sharpest weapon to conquer the streets. From a girl who has tried on as many possible variations of the off-the-shoulder trend to you, the one that I find more comfortable is when the sleeves come "detached" from the main part of the top, such as the one I'm wearing on this post; that way the sleeves won't be rolling up at your every move.  Kisses, A Ya perdí la cuenta de la cantidad de veces que he proclamado que nuestros hombros son la pareja más...

Cold Shoulder Treatment

_MG_6146
While looking into this season’s trends, I read somewhere on the net that “if it isn’t off the shoulder it isn’t right”. And according to every other designer, this is one the truest statements that sums SS17’s runways. Although slowly, but surely the shoulder mania is reinterpreting itself -I dare to say that we will soon be witnessing the revival of the one-shoulder trend, as opposed to the current whole collarbone exposure-, we still are in the major boom of cold shoulders. The already hot temperatures, make me very thankful for the trend, and so, here I leave you with a little number that makes me crave even more for summer. I hope you guys like it! 

Love, A

PS: Oh and btw, I’m absolutely nuts over these gorgeous, super colorful and practical Colombian bags! So proud of my friend from @Mestizo_sv!

One of the best parts of Fashion is pushing your creativity in order to make new, and unique combinations. Layering is an easy way of achieving originality on your look on a daily basis. A few days back, I grabbed a simple, off the shoulder, white dress that -TBH- hadn’t much going in for it, and layered it in a way that I would actually want to wear. I topped the dress with a sandy colour crochet vest, and again with a military style gilet. How do you guys feel about it?

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!

2016

_MG_1002

The new year is crawling towards us. For 2016, there is a few things written down on my list of wishes, and propositions (career, self growth, and love being at the top of my list). It feels good to start over. It feels good to have a clean year ahead, in which whatever happened before will just help us get to a new, better place. I wish you all an amazing year, and I thank you for being my companions and baring with me in 2015. xxA

Valentineless?

v day 2

If loving someone is something we do for free, then why does every February 14th make us feel like we have to make a gift, try to find the perfect card (because clearly there’s no card in the world that fits your relationship), make dinner reservations, buy flowers, or simply say “Will you be my valentine?”. I don’t want to sound like the Valentine’s Grinch, but a quote I read in a store few days ago said “Good things do not need marketing”. It had me thinking about the good in these kinds of occasions.

I read an article about the reason why it is not good to celebrate Valentine’s Day. To be honest, it didn’t really convince me. It said that in Valentine’s, people end up trying to make everything perfect for one day or for one night, instead of making things perfect everyday. It also said that if you celebrate Valentine’s, it’s because your relationship is failing, or because it may unleash a spirit of competition. I don’t think this to be true.

The V Day is a perfect excuse to “go back to the roots” in your relationship. If you really put your effort into finding the perfect gift without expecting anything in return, you can really strengthen your relationship, even if it is actually failing. I think that mature couples would not be competing on who gives the cutest gift, they would be glad to give and glad to recieve. Need some more reasons?

1. You may have a really funny date. Instead of doing always the same things, you can try something new like learn to dance salsa, or cook pizza together.

2. Love inspires creativity. This can help you to bring out the best of yourself. Do something you wouldn’t normally do, like choose an ice-cream flavor that you don’t like as much, but that he does. Think of something special. After all, what is more lovely than making each other happy?

3. Single? Make your best V Day with your friends. Go for a road trip on the weekend, or order food, watch movies and chill out on the couch.

Valentine’s Day goes beyond hearts, romantic dinners, or teddy bears. Forget marketing and discounts and find your own reasons to celebrate the official day of love, and most importantly don’t make a Valentine’s Day, make a Valentine’s LIFE.
