Find your pattern!

Hello everyone! A while back, I read a book about style and how to simplify the task of dressing every morning. Reading it gave me many useful insights, one of which I want to share with you all: Find what looks good on you and create a pattern out of it. I'm very reluctant when it comes to subjecting one's style to restrictive molds, but I actually realized that there are certain silhouettes and colors that I instinctively gravitate to. More than clinging to a boring uniform, it is about discovering what suits you best, and turn that into your staple. In my case, I find that high waist, straight leg trousers elongate my figure and accentuate my waist. I have a...

Upholstered

At the risk of looking like the walking version of my parents' living room couch, I bought this Zara jacket on sale. Funny thing about sales, I always go in looking for basics that will underpin my everyday wardrobe, but end up leaving with a bunch of statement pieces, that don't really qualify as your wardrobe essentials. This cocoon type jacket seemed like the perfect way to inject vivacity into may otherwise plain looks; it also opens up a chest of possibilities for mixing prints in an outfit.  xA Compré esta chaqueta en las últimas rebajas de Zara, aun corriendo el riesgo de parecerme al sofá del cuarto de estar de mis padres. Lo que acaparó mi atención además de su aparente...

Verde

Monochrome has been around for a while. We've seen the trend trickling down from runways, to red carpets, to streets. And why wouldn't it, when the outcome is as polished, as it is striking? I've tried the trend a few times, and truth be told, dressing in one single hue, does make life a lot easier. Eliminating the hassle of putting multiple colours together saves a few of those precious morning minutes. To the critical one's, this trend has no downside: extra sleeping time plus a flawless outcome. Kisses! A La tendencia de vestir con un solo color ha estado presente ya por un buen rato. La he probado unas cuantas veces y la verdad es que es una tendencia que se...

Sunset Boulevard

The day we shot this look, appeared as an ominous one. That afternoon, the sky abruptly decided to pour its rage on us, and it seemed as if the sudden rain would never stop pounding. But, out of the blue, the thick drops stopped; and just like that, the sky flourished in a wheel of fun fair colours. The decadent clouds where tinted by soft pink and orange hues, that contrasted against the clear blue of the sky. It was a breathtaking sunset, and the loneliness of the parking lot we were in, didn't feel like emptiness at all, but just like a dose of tranquility.     Aquella tarde, el cielo caprichoso se encapotó sin previo aviso, pero tan pronto se...

Remember me?

First of all, I have to apologize for my absolute disappearance. I have been very busy with work, which is why I haven't been very good with posting. However, I hope that, the look I share with you today will compensate for all this absent time. I fell for this top from the moment I saw it. I loved every bit of it, its colour, its sleeves, its sophistication. Since it is a very conservative top, considering it barely shows any skin of, I thought it would pair perfectly with a pair of high waist shorts. What do you think of the look?! x A Antes que nada, quiero disculparme por haber desaparecido del mapa por tanto tiempo. Si bien he estado...

Statement Jacket

Always a sucker for a nice jacket, I do believe a third piece can change your total look. Nonetheless, living in a warm weather country makes layering a definite challenge, but one that I am willing to take on. This jacket not only adds a statement punch to the look, but it is also a nice, light jacket, that doesn't feel too hot to handle. I paired it with these interesting frayed hem jeans, which created a very cool, upbeat look. x A Soy de las que piensa que una chaqueta puede cambiar por completo tu look. Sin embargo, al vivir en un país de clima caluroso, usar capas a veces puede ser una locura. Esta chaqueta me encantó no solo por...

Something Borrowed

The best part about having your sisters grow up, is the expansion of your own wardrobe. Lucky for me, at the moment my baby sis and I can share pretty much all of our clothes and shoes, not only that, but she has inherited a keen sense of style (obviously learnt from the best! ha!). You can actually follow her on her shared Instagram feed (@lifethrghlenses). Now, she may hate me for posting this cute dress on my blog, before letting her post it on her IG account, but, babe, if you are reading this, what's mine is yours and vice versa.  xA Uno de los mejores beneficios de que tus hermanas crezcan es la multiplicación de tu armario. Este año, por...

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...

Mid Day Strolls

As much as it is summer in the Northern hemisphere of the planet, down here we are currently under the rainy season; which I actually love! When you live in a country that enjoys both the blessings, and curses of sultry sun rays most of the year, you can't help, but long for chilly, rainy days. I love having to pull my cosy jackets, and ponchos out, and let them breathe a bit of fresh air on mid day strolls. Here is a look with one of my favourite jackets. Hope you guys like it! xA Aunque actualmente el hemisferio Norte del planeta se encuentre disfrutando del verano, en mi país estamos en plena época lluviosa; lo cual me encanta. Cuando se...

Welcome!

Since the very moment we decided to create the new site, my team and I knew that we had to come up with a very special photoshoot, something representative, intimate. While tossing with this idea, we realized that nothing is more personal than one's boudoir. That space where you let lose, dance barefoot, and sing into a brush microphone; that space that few people are allowed to trespass; that space that remains part of one's mystery. Through this blog, I have already opened to you the doors of my mind; and now, I am ready to open as well the doors of my bedroom. Take your heels, sneakers or whatever shoes you are wearing off, perch yourself wherever your body commands you...
