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...

Sequins & Roses

Hi guys! I am very much into embellished anything, lately. These jeans are perfect for a casual day, they make it easy to spice up any simple look. I wore this look not too long ago, pairing two pieces that blended seamlessly thanks to their don't care attitude. The floor grazing cardigan (which many have christened as a Harry Potter cloak) added a touch of drama, and enveloped the look with a special allure. x A ¡Hola a todos! Últimamente me he dejado seducir por los bordados. Desde el momento en el que me puse estos jeans, supe que eran ideales para dar vida a un look otrora aburrido.  Este conjunto que usé hace unos cuantos días, era una combinación más que lógica....

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!

Wide Leg

_MG_0930
I have been hunting for my Christmas and New Year’s outfits since the last weeks of November, but this year the task has proven to be harder than the one before. I have looked online, I have looked on my trip to Spain and to the UK, I have looked on local shops and everywhere I could think of. It was hard, particularly because I did not want to fall on my usual head-to-toe black ensemble. I finally did come across a perfect gold, shimmering, super sexy dress; however, along the way I bumped into perfectly nice and flattering black options that, of course, I thought of sharing with you. So excuse me if you may, but I will now bombard you with a few black outfit ideas for your multiple Holiday gatherings. Let the looks roll!

PS: If you are dying to see what my Christmas gold number is, follow me on Instagram as @AndreaNBonilla and stay tuned 😀

Portofino

So, holidays are right around the corner, and with all the rush of times we barely have time to stop, think and figure out what to wear to all the many events you might have lined up for the season. To make your life a tad easier, I decided to help you with a few outfit ideas. I love the versatility of this shirt, and how I can go from day to night with it. Here is a look I would happily wear to my friend’s Xmas dinner. What do you think?

Opulent Simplicity

IMG_0737
For my second eveningwear look in collaboration with Almacenes Simán, I chose a gown that struck me as perfectly balanced. Its simple design is counterweighted by the opulence of its embellishments. To add a special detail, that would lure the eyes, I used a gold belt that also matched the rest of the accessories.

SVFW14 Holiday

SV

Last week was the second time I had the chance of attending SVFW; a very inspiring event that keeps on surprising me more and more with every edition. Three days. Nine designers. Countless of thrilling emotions.

I didn’t want to go beyond this week without sharing with all of you my favourite looks proposed by the salvadoran up & coming cool young designers. Although the sources of inspiration for the collections were all very different, they all rose to the occasion and proved us, that this little country has quite a talented crowd pushing for the fashion industry.

Unwrap It!

Marc Jacobs

Going over Marc Jacobs Cruise 2015 collection was like unwrapping a shimmering mid-year present. It’s like one of those gifts that shimmer so brightly, you actually consider not unwrapping it at all. It seems as if that was what the designers at MJ had in mind when they came up with Resort 2015. Why choose between the colourful wrapping paper, the lush ribbons or the glossy bows, when the sight of them combined brings us such excitement?

If I am an accessory-holic (and there is a big chance of it), then I have definitely found accessories to indulge in. Shoes and handbags were all-glitter, all-bows, all-embellishments. And don’t even get me started on the boots (which have a high resemblance to Saint Laurent AW14 ones, if I may point out). Guipure lace here and there also made a stellar appearance in the form of dresses and trousers. This was surely a season made only for the lively ones!

The LWD

IMG_2230

I agree, every girl should have at least one LBD, but I also think every girl should have at least one LWD. A Little White Dress is a must have, especially when living in a sunny and warm country. What I love about this particular one is that it can take me from day to night with a simple change of shoes! The simplicity of this shift dress is what makes it so wearable, and the sequins really add up to its chic style. I think you already know how I feel about sequins, but just in case you don’t… I go crazy over them! I find it really hard to resist them. Yes, I admit it…Sometimes I think I have a mini Sharpay Evans inside me, and this is her talking.

Pick of the Week: Sequin Jacket

I spotted this extremely cute Ann Taylor jacket hanging on one of the multiple rails in the fashion cupboard of my office. We were working on a black and white styling project so our closet was as monochromatic as an old photograph. Regardless, my eyes and heart discovered it the minute I stepped in. With all it's sparkle, how could I not spot it? The jacket is such a statement in itself that there's no doubt it will brighten up any outfit. Style it with a pair of cute high waisted black shorts (like these ones from Zara), a plain shirt, let it be black or white or a popping colour, and a pretty pair of flat pumps or loafers. Uber...
