Birthday Wish List – Balmain

Hello,

It’s almost friday! I’m really excited for my birthday, although I’m not sure how I’m going to celebrate I’m pretty sure something will come up! So here’s another item of my wish list! It may sound weird but I would love to have the entire Balmain’s collection: spring-summer, fall and resort! Crazy right? Well I couldn’t decide which outfit I like the most that’s why I chose the entire collection.

The White List

Hello,

As you may have noticed, white is the color of spring and summer (as well as for fall). I guess you’ve read about this a couple of times and are now familiar with tons of ways on wearing white. That’s why the main purpose of this week’s posts is to share with you some quick ideas on how to combine this trending color with other spring-summer trends.

The White List:
  1. Shoes – White shoes are a must for the season. I love the chunky ones but the pointy-low-heel shoes are so IN.
  2. Maxi-Dress – Ideal for those summer days. Add a headband like those in Dolce & Gabbana‘s spring-summer ’13 collection
  3. Sleek skirt – Pair it with a peplum or ruffled blouse and you have the perfect outfit for the office.
  4. LWD – Add some gold and silver jewelry to your Little White Dress to create a minimalistic look.
  5. The Short Suit – Wear your blazer as a cape (as in the photo) if the weather’s too hot, it will give your outfit that elegant lady-like look.
Hope you liked it!
Which one’s your favorite trend from The White List?

Wear the trend like Dear Milano: See-through shoes!

Hello!

I have to admit I’ve been so busy these past days, school plus work are driving me crazy.  The good thing is that in just one more week I’ll be out of classes… woohoo!! In those free moments I had during work and study-time, I went online and did some  shoe-shopping. There were lots of beautiful shoes I wanted to buy them all, but unfortunately this time I had to pick one. I don’t know if I have said this before but I’m a huge fan of shoes and accessories. Maybe it’s my mom’s fault since she is a shoes-a-holic. There’s no time we go to a store and my mom didn’t buy some shoes… (guess how my closet and her closet looks, hopefully one day I’ll post some photos of it.)

During my shoe search I remembered that this season must-have and must-wear trend in shoes and accessories is the see-through trend. So today I’ve decided to put my friend and top fashion blogger Andrea María from Dear Milano as the best example on wearing this trend. When I saw her outfit I immediately noticed her amazing see-through shoes. Here Andrea is wearing some beautiful shoes from the mexican brand called Mila Milu . The monochrome look works great and is an excellent example of how to wear the trends in a chic and fashion way. You have to admit she looks so pretty and chic, so lady-like! And as Andrea wrote on her blog, you can wear this outfit for work meetings.

If you’re interested in buying some shoes like these online you can go to Mila Milu’s website for more options and I recommend  to look for pvc shoes since it is actually what top designers use to create this effect. And I really REALLY recommend you visit http://www.dearmilano.com and follow the beautiful Andrea on Instagram @dearmilano for the most amazing fashion outfits, tips and trends. I’m sure you’ll love her blog as much as I do.

Go ahead, look for your favorite see-through shoes, take a picture and let me know how they look. How will you wear this trend?

¡Hola!

No te puedo explicar lo ocupada que he estado estas últimas semanas, las clases más el trabajo me están volviendo loca. Lo bueno es que ya en una semana termino con clases ¡wuhu! Pero bueno, te cuento que en ese tiempo libre que tenía mientras estaba en el trabajo y estudiaba para los exámenes finales decidí entretenerme un poco en Internet, por lo que decidí hacer un poco de shopping de zapatos. Había tantos zapatos tan padres que quería comprarme todos, pero desafortunadamente esta vez tenía que escoger sólo uno. No se si te había comentado esto antes pero soy una fanática de los zapatos y los accesorios. Yo creo que es culpa de mi mamá ya que ella es adicta a los zapatos y de alguna manera me hizo igual. Recuerdo que no había ocasión en la que saliéramos de alguna tienda y mi mamá no hubiera comprado unos zapatos. Ya te podrás imaginar como está mi closet y el suyo, llenos de zapatos. Algún día les compartiré algunas fotos.

Mientras estaba en busca de mis nuevos zapatos recordé que un must-have y un must-wear en zapatos y accesorios es la tendencia transparente. Así que el día de hoy decidí poner a una gran amiga y top blogger de modas Andrea María de Dear Milano como el mejor ejemplo en cómo usar esta tendencia.Tengo que aceptar que la primera vez que vi este look, inmediatamente noté sus zapatos transparentes y me encantaron.  Aquí Andrea está usando unos zapatos de  marca mexicana llamada Mila Milu. El look monocromático queda perfecto con estos zapatos y es una gran opción para usar la tendencia. Tienes que aceptar que se ve demasiado bonita y chic, muy lady-like! Y como Andrea escribió en su blog: este es un ouftit que puedes usar para esos días de juntas en la oficina.

Así que si te interesa comprar unos zapatos como estos online puedes visitar la página web de Mila Milu para encontrar más opciones y además te recomiendo que  busques este tipo de zapatos como ‘zapatos pvc’ ya que este es el material que utilizan los diseñadores para lograr el efecto transparente. Y sobre todo en REALIDAD te recomiendo visitar http://www.dearmilano.com y seguir a Andrea de Dear Milano en Instagram @dearmilano para encontrar los tips, tendencias y looks más chic y a la moda. Estoy segura que te vas a enamorar de su blog tanto como yo me enamoré.

Así que ve y busca tus zapatos transparentes favoritos, tómale una foto y compártela conmigo para conocer de más ideas de cómo usar esta tendencia. ¿Cómo usarías esta nueva tendencia?

Besos

Olivia Palermo Olivia and Joy clutch fashonista wears

Steal Olivia Palermo’s clutch!

Hola,

No puedo creer que el tiempo en verdad pasa demasiado rápido. La semana pasada aproveché que nos dieron vacaciones (por Pascua) y me fui a Austin, Tx. a pasar un rato con mi familia y novio. No tienes idea de todo lo que ‘aprendí’ mientras estuve por allá. Pero después te cuento sobre eso.

Lo que quería comentarte el día de hoy es que este mes lo vamos a dedicar a las Gurús de la moda. Podrán ser las favoritas de unas o las odiadas de otras, pero estas personas se distinguen por imponer nuevas tendencias, vestir siempre a la moda y sobre todo influenciar a muchas personas. Así que no te pierdas este mes de la lista de fashionistas y todo los detalles para poder vestir como ellas.

Esta semana tenemos a Olivia Palermo. Tengo que aceptar que me encanta el estilo chic y elegante de esta fashionista. No habrá ocasión en la que la vayamos a ver mal vestida. Si te gusta como se viste y los accesorios que utiliza, muy probablemente te va a encantar el clutch color mandarina-naranja de Olivia + Joy que utilizó ese día. En las siguientes ligas podrás encontrar un clutch parecido de tiendas como Banana Republic, Asos, Urban Outfitters y Forever 21.

¿Para qué ocasión usarías esta clutch? ¿Te gusta el estilo de Olivia Palermo?

xx,

Alejandra García

Hello,

I can’t believe how time goes by so quickly. Last week, I had the opportunity to go to Austin, Tx. with my family and boyfriend due to Easter holidays. You have no idea of all the things that I learned while I was there, but later I’ll tell you about that.

What I wanted to talk to you about today is that  White Guru will dedicated this month’s posts to the top fashionistas. For some, they might be their favorite fashionista or the worst, but the truth is that these women are known for imposing new trends, dressing always in fashion and above all for being a huge influence to lots of people. Don’t miss this month’s list of fashionistas and all the details in order to dress like them.

This week we have Olivia Palermo. I have to accept that I love her elegant and chic style. There’ll be no time when we’ll see her looking had. If you like the way she dresses and the accessories she wears, you’ll probably love the tangerine-orange Olivia + Joy clutch she wore that day. If you really want Olivia’s clutch or something similar, you will find some other choices in the following links.

So, for what occasion will you wear this clutch? Do you like Olivia Palermo’s style?

Trending – Hello spring and hello colors

Hello,

Recently I’ve been looking for things to buy online and suddenly I see this amazing bag in a full range of colors. I couldn’t decide on which one to buy, I really wanted all of them. So I thought I needed to see what colors I’ll be wearing during spring so it could (somehow) complement my outfits. I could remember that when I was doing some runway and street-style research I saw some specific colors on almost every outfit. Whether you wear this colors on a total look, a bag, an accessory or shoes, these are the colors you need to be looking for spring.

Top 6 Spring Colors:

1. Red

2. Blue

3. Black

4. White

5. Sunset Colors (yellow, orange and red)

6. Green

You can wear this colors in different tones, for example blue tones can go from an icy blue to an indigo blue. Also you can wear the metallic version. For example metallic green or metallic orange, yellow or pink (sunset colors) as seen in Burberry garnments.Or if you want a sping/easter mood you can choose the pastel hues.

Eventhough they’re a lot of ways you can wear this colors, I would recommend to mind the ocassion you’ll be wearing it.  Tip:  Pastels work great on the day outfits. I prefer metallics for the night. And I would wear the total look for the day and night outfit.

What’s your favorite spring color? What are you shopping for?

xx,

Alejandra García
