Pick of the Week: SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah-Jessica-Parker-Shoe-Collection-Nordstrom

If there was one thing that the World was waiting for this year, it would have to be Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoe line for Nordstrom. Although the SJP collection has been out for a while now, I can’t go on further without choosing one as my Pick of the Week! The problem is, I can’t make up my mind between the Silvia sandal and the Maud metallic sandal. They’re both über stylish! Which one would you go for?

I’m back!

I’m back in El Salvador, and I plan on sticking around for a while. It will be a great time to rediscover my hometown and to be close to my family and friends. This photoshoot was taken at a member’s country club. I used to spend a lot of my spare time after school here with my sister and cousins, playing tennis, swimming and sipping the heat out over frozen strawberry drinks!  I hope you enjoy it!

The Pick of the Week: Tee Shirt Earrings

“I fell. I fell in Dior.” Carrie Bradshaw 

I currently have the desire to splurge on Tee Shirt Earrings. I first saw them on the graceful Chloe Hill (www.bychill.com). The Fashion Market Editor at Instyle Australia had the original white pearl earrings. 

About a week ago, as I was dashing towards my gate in Heathrow Airport, I brought myself to make an oh-so-needed pit stop at the Dior store. I was hoping to refuel my energy and maybe tick the desired earrings off my “To Buy List” without the aggravating taxes! It seemed like a definite win-win situation. Unfortunately, as the sales assistant assured to me, the earrings are so popular that they sell like hot buns. Whenever they restock, they immediately run out of them. They only had a green pair left. The hunt for the white, or silver, or gold and silver tee shirt earrings is still on. This is why they had to make it to my Pick of The Week.

Uno de mis últimos deseos de lujo son los aritos Tee Shirt de Dior. Los vi por primera vez en Chloe Hill. La Editora de Moda de Instyle Australia tenía los originales aritos de perlas blancas. 

Hace más o menos una semana, mientras corría apresuradamente hacia mi puerta en el aeropuerto de Heathrow, me sentí obligada a hacer una parada técnica en la tienda de Dior. Tenía la esperanza de recobrar mis energías y tal vez de hacerme con una par de mis tan deseados pendientes y tax free! Lastimosamente, como me aseguró la dependienta, los aritos son tan populares que se venden como pan caliente. Tan pronto reciben una nueva tanda, como se agotan. Sólo les quedaba un par verde. Creo que mi deseo de tenerlos ha aumentado incluso más, por eso esta semana son mi pick of the week.

London: Just Like Home!

One of the perks of living in many different places is that you meet wonderful, new people. One of the disadvantages of living in many different places is having to say goodbye. London is one of the cities that has left an indelible mark on me. When I’m there, I don’t feel like an outsider; I don’t consider myself as a tourist. It’s easy to spot a tourist from miles away. They usually have a slight lost, but amazed look on them. They’re always carrying one, or two, or even three cameras with them, and if they don’t snap a shot every other minute, they’re not really living the experience. We have all been tourists at least once in our lives. But in London, I’m not one. This is a city that really feels like home to me. I guess that’s why I don’t feel the urge to capture every historic place, monument or moment. Although I would love to share with you all the amazingness that makes London shine, I’m afraid, that this time, I was a lousy blogger. With this said, I wanna leave you with a few pictures of my recent trip to London!

The Vogue Festival 2014

Video edited by Marielli Rodriguez

My last weekend of March was full of style, personalities and rendez-vous. I had the pleasure to attend Vogue Festival 2014 in London, a two-day fashion fair in which top designers, models, and editors gather to share their experiences and professional wisdom to anyone who’s willing to listen.

Fashion is undeniably a darwinian environment.  The competition is fierce and only the strongest, sharpest, and most passionate can survive. Meeting those who have already become legends (Phoebe Philo, Franca Sozzani, Naomi Campbell, Manolo Blahnik,…) is always inspiring and encouraging. As Diane Von Furstenberg said: “That’s fashion. It never stops. It’s like a train journey, and some people come in, and some people leave, and the landscape changes. So enjoy the ride.” 

Mi último fin de semana de Marzo estuvo lleno de estilo, personalidades y reencuentros. Tuve el placer de asistir al Vogue Festival 2014 en Londres, un festival de moda en el que diseñadores, modelos y estilistas se reunen para compartir su experiencia profesional.

La industria de la moda se caracteriza por ser un entorno darwinista. La competencia es feroz y únicamente sobreviven los más fuertes, listos y apasionados. Conocer a aquellos que ya se han convertido en leyenda (Phoebe Philo, Franca Sozzani, Naomi Campbell, Manolo Blahnik,…) siempre me inspira y alienta a seguir adelante y disfrutar al máximo del paisaje. Como dijo Diane Von Furstenberg: ” Eso es la moda. Nunca se detiene. Es como un viaje en tren, hay quienes se suben y quienes se bajan y el paisaje cambia constantemente. Así que disfruta del viaje”. 

Simán Fashion Week Summer ’14

I visited El Salvador for a few days at the beginning of March, and while I was there I was invited to a few fashion events. I have been lucky to go to a fair amount of fashion shows internationally, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much locally. To my surprise, the shows I attended turned out to be very interesting productions.
