Hems down!

DSC_0396

I’m posting just as I’m about to leave for London. I’m craving badly a nice break from the Canadian frosting winter that’s delaying the reality of spring, so this trip comes in perfect timing. Perhaps due to my desperation for a warmer weather, I decided that I would get rid of the tights for this post, no matter how crazy it would seem. 

Culottes are in. Yes, that’s the funny name for these funny length shorts. I actually love them. They’re comfortable, not too elegant yet not too casual…On top of everything, you don’t have to worry about feeling like your legs are turning heads wherever you go (which to be honest, pisses me off). This is definitely a trend that I’m happy to embrace. So go on and bring the hems down!

Pick of the week: New Balance

For a while now, I have been spotting the New Balance streetstyle trend popping here and there. Although it has been a bit in the word of mouth, I didn’t want to go on without mentioning it. This is why I decided that this week’s pick should undoubtedly be the currently trending sneakers. So let’s bring it on for the cool, fashionable, and comfortable NB’s! Here are a few of my favourite ones! Which one is your pick?

Aunque ya hace un rato que he visto como los New Balance se han puesto más y más de moda, no quería dejar de mencionarlos en el blog. Por eso, mi Pick of the Week de esta semana son sin más preámbulos estos tennis. Los NB aportan un estilo sin esfuerzo y además son comodisímos. Aquí les dejo algunos de mis preferidos.

A Snake Print Dress

We’re currently in that funny period of time when all the in-store collections shout SPRING, SPRING, SPRING, but the Winter outside continues to freeze our brains out! It is good though, because we can be creative with our outfits by mixing spring clothes with winter ones. I recently bought this snakeskin dress. I love it! However, with the cold outside, I still find it cruel to wear without layers. So here’s how I styled it a few days ago!

So for the weekend, I wanted to leave you with a glimpse of the editorials and styling works that are currently in my head. Have a happy weekend!

Perfect Imperfections

DSC_0165

Thanks to imperfections, we can perceive and aspire perfection. In fact, it is the imperfections that make the realities around us more interesting. Even the fashion industry embraces imperfections every-so-often as a quest for originality and authenticity. Gap teeth, cat eyes, untamed eyebrows… and in my case ladders in my tights. I hate it so badly when it happens! But the other day, as I was searching for a pair of tights in my drawer, I thought, “Why not just embrace the imperfection?!”. And it actually looked cool! It looked grunge cool. Like “I don’t give a damn” cool! Sometimes, we should just stop fighting the imperfections, and learn how to love them instead.

PS: Talking about imperfections, I am super happy to show you guys my very first GIF! It has loads of flaws, but I still love it! (Scroll down to check it out.)

February Round-up

DSC_0357

For a while now, I’ve been thinking about introducing a monthly post displaying my wardrobe additions. This way, I can share with you my obsessions, my fashion and beauty musts, and how I incorporate the key trends into my personal style.

So here is the first one of, hopefully, many! These are February’s additions to my wardrobe and beauty closet, including snakeskin… an SS14 mini trend that will slither its way to becoming a staple for AW14!

Desde hace cierto tiempo, he querido incorporar un post mensual al blog en el que pueda mostrarles mis nuevas adiciones a mi armario y a mi closet de belleza. De este modo, puedo compartir mis obsesiones del momento, mis musts de moda y belleza y cómo hago propias las tendencias de la temporada.

Estas son algunas de las cosas que he añadido a mi closet en el mes de Febrero. Por supuesto no podía faltar el snakeskin, una mini tendencia para Primavera-Verano, que sin duda acaparará la atención en la temporada Otoño-Invierno 2014.
