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...

Something Borrowed

The best part about having your sisters grow up, is the expansion of your own wardrobe. Lucky for me, at the moment my baby sis and I can share pretty much all of our clothes and shoes, not only that, but she has inherited a keen sense of style (obviously learnt from the best! ha!). You can actually follow her on her shared Instagram feed (@lifethrghlenses). Now, she may hate me for posting this cute dress on my blog, before letting her post it on her IG account, but, babe, if you are reading this, what's mine is yours and vice versa.  xA Uno de los mejores beneficios de que tus hermanas crezcan es la multiplicación de tu armario. Este año, 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....

Colours of Easter

Bare with me a post! I know you are expecting the second high waist jeans look, but it is Easter holidays, and everyone, even me, is hurtling out of the city, and anxiously trading asphalt for sand, and coffees for coconuts. I am not exaggerating when I say that this week will not see me wearing anything but shorts, bathing suits and sandals; if they come with pompoms or tassels, all the better! The days ahead promise a good deal of chilling, and tanning. Hope you have a great holiday! xA Les pido que me aguanten por un post. Sé que estaban esperando ver mi segundo look con high waist jeans, pero Semana Santa en El Salvador es sinónimo de sol y playa. No...

Through the Looking Glass

_MG_4840

Hi beautiful people! I love this white blazer: it is smart, sharp, and chic. It completely dresses up any look, even if you are wearing tie die denim shorts and a backless bodysuit. Have a lovely end of the week!

Crazy for the 70’s

_MG_8595

Fringe, pussy bows, and mini skirts, are only a few of the staples that pinpoint the 70’s trend. Inspired by those revolutionary years, I put together a look in a neutral colour palette. I hope you like it!

The Eyes of the Tiger

IMG_0917

It was as if the gaze of the tiger stared intently at me, quietly, but sharply. And it lured me in a hypnotic way, forcing me to desire to wear it. An all black outfit, primly wrapped in a floor length cream cardigan, a piece that inevitably screams elegance and poise.

Keep Cozy

IMG_8969

Living in El Salvador for over a year now, made me almost forget about the cool days of Fall, but this past weekend I was lucky to visit Washington DC, and even though Summer was still in the air (at least while the sun was out), the evenings and nights did get pretty chilly. It is the time of the year perfect for layering, and this poncho is an ideal piece for the season.

Window Pane

IMG_8808

It feels so good when you find a pair of trousers that fit you perfectly, make your legs look longer, and your figure, leaner. Not only does this pair’s window pane print achieves perfection, but the cut is everything! They are so flattering, that I will be fighting myself to give them a break. They are an ideal style staple.

Covetable

IMG_2736

I am not much of a trousers girl, but the minute I spotted this pair, I knew I had to have them. They were lurking on the hanger behind a couple of white blouses. Crisp, clean. “It is the last pair”, pointed out one of the shop girls as she saw me coveting them. They were a size too small. But ladies, when we really want something, we don’t mind sweating a little bit for it. I had to squeeze myself in. Yes they were a size too small, but those oh so straight legs that make mine look lengthier, and that high waist that makes mine look daintier… I had to have them! Besides, no one else can tell; and I am not one to complain.
