Starry Night

I had to stop myself from crying. It was a very emotional moment to see Lumi sprint down the runway, stand mid-catwalk and shyly, but excitedly grin to the roaring crowd. It was all I could do not to race to where she was, and shamelessly embrace her. I didn't think I would feel such a whirlwind of emotions surge inside of me, but I did. Weeks before that moment, I received a text: "Andrea, I would like to dress you for fashion week". "YASS!!" My heart leapt for joy! For me, who am a total sucker for the brand, there was no better way to show up at fashion week, than dressed up in Lumi! Two days before the shows, I squeezed...

Floral Denim

  Last week, I was pretty much a guest at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Three, of the five days, of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week took place at the newly built convention centre and its terrace. So unsurprisingly, I decided to shoot a few looks there.  La semana pasada, fui prácticamente una huésped en el hotel Crowne Plaza, considerando que únicamente abandoné las instalaciones para ir a dormir. Tres de los cinco días de Mercedes Benz fashion week tuvieron lugar en los nuevos salones y terraza del hotel. Por lo mismo, no resulta sorprendente que haya decidido hacer algunas fotos en el lugar.

Sweet Pink

Last Wednesday, cladded up in candy pink, I was glad to be wearing woolly layers and jeans. Believe it or not, the afternoon we shot this look was a particularly chilly one. It is March, and the soon to be unbearable heat of Summer has been thrusting the mercury up. But for no reason, that evening, the clouds were ganging up on us and threatening with rain. Even if the cool temperatures offered us a soothing afternoon, we were forced to shut the panoramic doors because the mischievous winds wouldn't give us a rest.    El Miércoles pasado, ataviada en color rosa de pies a cabeza, me reuní con unos amigos en el bar del Crowne Plaza. Aunque no lo crean, el día nos regaló una tarde fresca a diferencia de...

Peeling Sleeves

Hi lovely ones! If you have been keeping up with the runways, you must have realized that one of the upcoming trends are slitted sleeves. Designers have turned the flared sleeves trend up a notch by slicing straight through them. The new silhouette makes up for a very classy look. Although this blazer could be more accurately included under the cape trend, it can still be considered within the slit sleeve trend's borderlines. It has become one of my go to layering pieces for work days, particularly because it is super easy to wear and perfect for elevating any look. xA PS: Aren't these flats to die for? Talk about smart footwear! Hola chic@s! Si han seguido las pasarelas de moda, entonces saben que una de...

Abstract Imagery

  The moment I saw these pants, I knew how I wanted to style them. Forget the same-print boxy top that was hanging right next to them, these were begging to be paired with a plain crop top, a long cardigan or vest, and a seductive pair of pumps. Surely enough, when I put it all together, it looked even better than what I had pictured. It is amazing how a sharp look can boost your confidence and give you a change of attitude. When my reflection in the mirror met my eyes, it immediately grinned back at me in cahoots.  En el mismo momento en que vi estos pantalones, supe, sin duda alguna, cómo quería combinarlos. A partir de ellos, dibujé mentalmente un look que...

Dangling Details

Hi, gorgeous people! Here is a random fact about me: If there is one thing that can make me feel happy and upbeat it is pompoms! I adore this cute off-the-shoulder top with the little, dangling details (surprise, surprise, I told you our shoulders were in). The beaded strings really add a dash of color and playfulness to the look. On the other hand, I really like how the dark blue top contrasts with the rich brick color of the jeans. Is it weird that I get a soothing feeling while admiring the harmony between this two hues (ha!)? Do you agree? Love, A Hi, sweethearts! Un random fact de mí es que los pompones me alegran. Me encanta esta camisa off-the-shoulder (de nuevo...

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...

Embroidered Shirt

Poplin shirts are having a major moment right now. I love how designers are upping the ante of casual wear, by adding whimsical details to our usual, everyday shirts. They come with ruffles, tassels, flared sleeves, and a long line of etceteras. The moment I spotted this particular top, I coveted it; its allure residing on how it mixes your typical baby blue stripes with the floral embroideries, a style very à la Gucci. I kept the look on the cool tones, by sticking to blues, whites, and silvers. This way, the outfit results fun, yet smart enough for a casual day of work.  Hope you guys like it! Love, A Las camisas de popelina se han convertido en una de las grandes estrellas del momento. Los diseñadores se han...
