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...

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!

Track Sole Crossing

_MG_2855

Hi, everyone! A few days ago I stumbled upon these chunky heel, track sole sandals. They struck me as sturdy, yet feminine with a hot vibe.  Not only do they elevate you to a whole new height, but they are comfortable as can be. I’ve tried them out with a few different outfits and they are a total game changer! They instantly add a touch of cool to any ensemble, which is really a trait that I look for when I am accessory shopping. So here is one of the outfits that I put together around the sandals. What do you think of it?!

I hope you all have a great week ahead!

Pink Business

One of my favourite pieces for a business look are wide leg trousers, specially when they are high waisted. They make you look taller, stronger and ready to tackle anything. I paired a dusty pink pair with a black top, a printed scarf and snake print stilettos, which add a playful touch to the combo.

Wild Rose

Going back to my childhood’s country club always brings wistful memories back. It was where I learned how to swim, play tennis, and eat fries topped with cheese. While I was there recently, I decided to take a few pictures for old times sake.

Keep it simple, sleek. Throw a printed scarf and a pair of stilettos into a clean look, and watch it transform into an ideal outfit to take you anywhere.

Personal Swag

IMG_9556

One of my favourite things about fashion is that it pushes you to be creative. The more, the better. For instance, I took this printed top which is originally meant to be zipped at the back, and transformed it into printed, light jacket. Worn, with a pop of bright colour, the pseudo-jacket adds an interesting point of attention to the look.

Hey, I’ve got a waist!

IMG_4112Not too long ago, I prepped a few conference talks on Styling and Personal Image. I love doing this as it is a perfect chance to go over a few of the key ideas, do’s and dont’s of dressing.

You have probably heard of the different body types, and how certain pieces tend to flatter every particular shape. If you have an eye for observation, you might have realized that, in my case, I have a very rectangular body: shoulders and hips aligned, and very little waist or none at all. This is why, for me, and for every other woman with a rectangular body, it is of utmost importance to create or accentuate the waist. A skirt like the one I’m using on this look is a perfect piece to define it, as it cinches the waist and creates volume on your lower body.

Blooming Lace

The moment I spotted this gown, I immediately fell in love with it. It has got all the right traits to it: beautiful colour and material, flattering shape, and even a bunch of embellishments! Since the belt has encrusted silver jewels, I combined the dress with all silver accessories. I hope you all like it as much as I do!
