Short days, long nights

As we approach to one of my favorite seasons (well kind of my favorite time of the year) it reminds me of all my new year resolutions (2013) I’ve checked and  those still waiting for me to do. Although it seems I still have time (2 months and some days left) my schedule gets even more crowded each day. I guess that’s why I love fall and winter days because the days are short and the nights are long, leaving me with enough time to focus and do all those things I need to do for myself.

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” – Anne Bradstreet

Printed Pants

Lately, I’ve been having this thing for printed pants. It was a must-wear trend during spring/summer and I’m glad to tell you that it will keep being a major trend for this next season,  but in darker hues. So today I chose to wear a neon tank to pump the black and white print of my pants. I also chose to mix silver, copper and gold accessories to match the whole look.

I would love to hear from you. Would you like to wear this trend on fall?

Recientemente he tenido esta cosa por los pantalones print. Esta tendencia fue un must-wear durante la primavera/verano y me alegra decirte que seguirá siendo una gran tendencia para esta temporada otoño/invierno, pero con tonos obscuros. Escogí una blusa color neón para resaltar el print blanco y negro de mis pantalones. Además decidí mezclar los colores accesorios color plata, oro y cobrizo para que encajaran con el look.

Me encantaría saber qué opinas, ¿te gustaría usar esta tendencia en el otoño/invierno?

Behind the Beauty of Shoes – Charlotte Olympia

Hello followers,

Today I was browsing through the internet looking for some shoes I was willing to buy and suddenly a question pop-up into my head: How exactly are shoes made?
Nowadays we see so many crazy and unique shoes that we really don’t know what’s the (hard) process behind those beauties. And suddenly I found this amazing video directed by Tabitha Denholm for Charlotte Olympia’s brand. Although Charlotte Olympia’s a British brand, in this video we can see how Italy’s craftsmanship, quality, details and dedication showcase the essential ingredients to a luxury design. The short film’s name is Made in Italy. Hope you like it!

Now that you know, are they worth it?

Hola followers!

Les platico que el día de hoy estuve buscando por internet unos zapatos que quería comprar y derrepente se me vino a la mente una pregunta: ¿Cómo se hacen los zapatos?

Hoy en día vemos todo tipo de zapatos desde lo más locos hasta esos que son únicos y de alguna manera no conocemos el proceso (difícil) detrás de estas hermosuras. Y de repente me encontré este increíble video dirigido por Tabitha Denholm para la marca Charlotte Olympia. A pesar de que Charlotte Olympia es una marca Británica, en este video podrás ver como la artesanía, calidad, detalle y dedicación Italiana se convierten en los ingredientes esenciales para una marca de lujo. El nombre de este video es Made in Italy. Espero que te guste.

Ahora que sabes esto, ¿valen lo que cuestan?

Jumpsuit summer trends 2013 2014 fashion week

Summer Ready!

Hello followers!

Summer is one of my favorite seasons in the year (winter’s my top 1). It’s the time in the year when you can actually dress in so many ways: rompers, dresses, short-shorts, maxi-dresses, etc. Sometimes jeans get so boring that you need something fresh and chic. So this time I decided to wear one of my favorite summer garnments – the jumpsuit. Although I decided to wear it in black, you can choose bold colors like orange, blue or red, or maybe try small patterns for a retro look. Pair your jumpsuit with some wedges and large sunnies and you have your summer look. And remember WEAR A BELT, I really like how the small.chained belt looks, but if you are wider on your waist you can wear a wide belt to accentuate your figure.

Remember you can leave me a comment with your favorite summer trends.

Have an awesome week and don’t forget to stay tuned for the upcoming posts.

xx,

Alejandra García

¡Hola!

El verano es una de mis temporadas favoritas del año (invierno es mi top 1). Siempre he dicho que es el momento indicado para usar cualquier tipo de ropa: los short-shorts, vestidos, jumpers, maxi-vestidos entre otros. A veces los jeans se vuelven tan aburridos e incómodos que es necesario usar algo fresco y a la moda. Así que esta vez decidí llevar uno de mis prendas favoritas del verano – el jumper o jumpsuit. A pesar de que yo decidí usarlo en negro, puede escoger un color brillante como el naranja, azul o rojo para tu jumper o bien prueba patrones pequeños para un look retro. Agrega unas sandalias altas y unos lentes grandes a tu outfit y tienes el look perfecto para el verano. Y recuerda LLEVA UN CINTO, me encanta como se ven los cintos pequeños de cadena con este tipo de ropa, sin embargo si eres de cintura un poco ancha sólo cambia el cinto pequeño por uno más ancho para acentuar tu figura.

No olvides que puedes dejarme tu comentario con tus tendencias favoritas para el verano.

Que tengas una excelente semana y recuerda de estar al pendiente del blog ya que tendremos posts muy interesantes.

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?
