Amour

Hi, lovely people! With all the weekday sweaters parading through our IG timelines, this one feels just as cool, but with a more profound meaning and message. I'm a sucker for love. You may call me naive, blind, or clueless, but I do believe that Love is the only thing that can transform our World into a better place. War, hate, and selfishness may try to obliterate all the goodness in mankind, but no matter how bad things appear to be, love always manages to push its way through, the same way a feeble sprout springs amidst the thickening soil. Last weekend, I was a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding, seeing both her's and the groom's happiness, made me remember...

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...

A take on linen

Hi guys! Here is another of the beautifully tailored pieces of our colletion Borneo by Lumi. This one actually was designed to be a linen suit, with straight leg trousers and a vest top. However, I thought it would be nice to show the versatility of the top by combining it with a pair of dark jeans. The fan-like clutch and the geometric earrings are also some of the pieces we have at Borneo, both by Colombian designers.  xx A Hola a todos. Aquí les muestro otra de las piezas de Borneo by Lumi. Este top en realidad lo diseñamos como parte de un traje de lino, con unos pantalones rectos que tenían el mismo detalle de la costura vista a los...

Borneo by Lumi

  I haven't been very good at posting lately. Work has been manic, and I really haven't had much time to focus on the blog. However, I promise I will try and do my best to keep RRC as updated as possible.  I've just recently launched a brand with one of my very best friends, it has been a long journey since we first came up with the idea last year, but to see all of our efforts brought to life has been all the more gratifying. Borneo (@borneo.sv) is a fashion brand which tries to bring stylish products that will encourage women to aspire and be the best version of who they are. For Borneo, we teamed up with the salvadoran...

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...

Are we performing animals in a circus?

Over the holidays, I read a book that had been on my To Read List for a long time. Out of Africa is a heartfelt portray of life in the continent. I really enjoyed reading it, but I have to say that it left me with a bitter taste towards the end. On the last chapter, the author poses the following realization: "I learned the strange learning that things can happen which we ourselves cannot possibly imagine (...
