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...
In Ecuador, there are currently two places that have been labeled as the middle point of the world. The historic one was determined by French scientists in the XVIIIc. However, the research conducted afterwards demonstrated that the real middle of the world lies about 200m away.
I was lucky to visit both and do a quick photoshoot at the Middle of the World City, a small village created around the monument for the equator. Mismatching prints is one of my favourite trends, and on this occasion I combined a pair of cameo jeans with a leopard print scarf. I really like how the colours give a special harmony to the outfit. To tone down the look, I wore a plain white tee. Let me know what you think!
There’s a small shed close to my home that I drive by everyday. I hadn’t noticed it before because it’s hiding behind a shrubbery. I caught a glimpse of it through the bushes while I was pretending to exercise by walking, a few weeks ago. I realized then that its barren brick walls could probably make up for a nice set. And so I decided to put my denim shorts on and explore the area a bit further. In this post you can see the result of the shoot. I have to admit, it was a bit creepy to sneak around the old house, and, call me a coward but, I don’t think I will be going near it again any time soon.
PS: With this post I would like to introduce you to one of my new photographers: Gabriela Panameño. I hope you like the pictures (Thanks Gaby!).
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.
Talking about midi skirts, on my last post, reminded me of this neoprene one that I got not too long ago from Asos. Midi skirts were all over the AW14 runways, from Céline to Prada to Rochas… I find that the real key to wearing this type of skirts is combining them with a pretty pair of slenderizing high heels, let them be boots, pumps or sandals… they just add that certain je-ne-sais-quoi that ties it all together.
