Between summer and fall

Hi readers, I can’t believe we’re in September, time passes by so quickly…

In my world, September means three things: Vogue‘s September Issue, Fashion Week, and the beginning of autumn. Where I live the weather is still very hot but the nights start to feel a little bit chill. I like to think about it, as the perfect time to wear transitional clothing. For transitional I mean that you mix summer clothes  with fall/winter items. Today I would like to share with you my transitional outfit. I mix some short-shorts with a fall pattern, white buttoned blouse (ideal for summer or fall) and flower-pattern chunky heels.

What other pieces do you consider as transitional items?

xx,

Hola, en verdad no puedo creer que ya estamos en Septiembre, el tiempo pasa tan rápido…

En mi mundo, Septiembre es sinónimo de tres cosas: el September Issue de Vogue, la Semana de la Moda y el comienzo del otoño. En donde vivo el clima sigue siendo muy caliente pero las noches empiezan a estar un poco más frescas. Me gusta pensar en este momento como el momento perfecto para usar ropa para pasar de una temporada a otra. Con esto me refiero a mezclar ropa del invierno con ciertas prendas del otoño/invierno. El día de hoy comparto con ustedes uno de mis atuendos para este momento de cambio de temporada. Combiné unos short-shorts con estampado de invierno, con una blusa blanca de botones (ideal para el invierno o verano) y unos zapatos chunky con estampados de flores.

¿Qué otras piezas consideras como ideales para esta etapa intermedia entre temporadas?

Alejandra García

My Short Experience – Glass

Hello Followers,

I’m writing this short post just because last week I had the opportunity to try on Google’s Glass for the first time, here’s the whole story… Thursday night I was having dinner with my family at Whole Foods and suddenly I saw this guy wearing some unique glasses with a bright light on it, it reminded me of something I had seen before. I realized he was wearing Glass. Since I’ve been following and have written about Project Glass and Wearable Technology for some time ago, I saw this as an opportunity to finally test my assumptions on these devices. My brothers and I approached the guy wearing Google’s Glass and had the chance to try his glasses. From what I recall its main feature was to let you capture your everyday life and help you make some tasks in a more efficient way. So there I was, with this glasses on watching somebody else’s life. Here’s what I experienced..

When I first put them on, I had a little bit of difficulty trying to see what was on the screen. I guess this happened because it was my first time using them and didn’t know I had to focus my attention to the right eye. Then I saw this small screen floating in front of me with the time on it. Then the guy told me to make the swipe gesture on the right of the glasses to be able to watch some pictures he captured. It was so cool. He said that although Glass has wi-fi it needs to be connected (wire-less) to your iPhone to be able to work. He also told us that he wears it everywhere: while he driving, riding his bicycle, walking, running, etc. and that till now he has had no problem with it.

I really enjoyed wearing Glass for some minutes but I’m not quite sure if I will like to wear them everyday since I really had time trying to focus on the small screen. Maybe if the screen wasn’t that small it’ll be nicer. But the experience is just as I imagined it: amazing. And there’s no doubt I’ll buy them when they come out to the market.

Have you tried Glass? What was your experience? Or what’s your opinion about it?

Xx,

Alejandra Garcia

No Rules

Hello Followers,

Today I was reading one of my favorite fashion icon’s blog – Anna dello Russo – and concluded that her fashion advice is: do not follow fashion rules. I guess that’s why she has been known for her iconic style and everywhere she goes she wins everyone’s attention. That’s why this week I decided to follow some of her advices and chose a black ankle-boots for my summer outfit. Although some may say that boots are only for fall and winter today I state them wrong, by adding this simple but classy ankle-boot to my outfit I somehow fill it gives the whole look a strong and different feeling.

The quote that inspired today’s outfit:

Don’t match clothes and its own function:
Like rain and trenchcoat,
like snow and moonboot,
forget it the umbrella at home!”

– Anna dello Russo

¡Hola!

El día de hoy estuve leyendo el blog de una de mis fashion-icons favoritas – Anna dello Russo – y al leer sus consejos de moda concluí que su consejo en esto es: no sigas las reglas en la moda. Yo me imagino que es por esto que Anna se ha distinguido por su estilo icónico y a cada parte que va se gana la atención de todos. Por esta misma razón decidí seguir sus consejos y elegí para el look-de-verano de hoy unos botines negros. Aunque muchos dirán que los botines son sólo para el otoño e invierno, hoy quiero probarles lo contrario ya que al agregar este simple pero clásico botín a mi outfit pude levantar todo el look y hacerlo diferente.

La frase que inspiró el look de hoy:

No hagas que la ropa y su función coincidan:

Como la lluvia y un trenchcoat,

Como la nieve y las botas gruesas,

es más olvida el paraguas en casa!”

– Anna dello Russo
