One of my closest friends got married a few weeks back. I don’t own many gowns, so for this very special occasion I decided to invest in one that would be as unique as possible. I have become very fond of national designers, and last November when I attended MBFDays El Salvador, I spotted the dress that I wanted to wear on such an exceptional night. This Monica Arguedas seemed ideal for two reasons: it was different than what everyone was wearing out here, and the fact that it was a two piece look made it versatile and perfect for wearing to multiple events – a great investment! For the wedding, I actually wore it with a low bun to show off its beautiful back. I hope you like it!
Embellished collars make up for one of my favorite accessories. When it comes to jewellery, I’m not your typical necklace fan, so I do appreciate a top that comes with a collar frosting of its own. Here is my latest look, garnished with a pinch of beads.
Colour blocking is a fun way of dressing up. It is exciting to match different tones to create a cool combo. I went for sober hues on my clothes and then added a citric punch with the loafers. Bold and chic.
About a couple of weeks ago, I was asked to create an outfit with these gorgeous, lace ankle booties. I was told that because they were such a fashion statement, it would be harder for people to visualize them in their wardrobes. I immediately jumped, psyched at the thought of it. I loved the shoes the moment I spotted them, and I already had an avalanche of ideas on how to wear them.
The easiest way of wearing them is letting all of the eyes immediately fall on them, by leaving your legs bare skin. Wear them with a mini dress, skirt, or shorts for maximum showcase. You can always also wear them with skin tight jeans, or if you don’t dare to actually bring everyone’s attention to them, combine them with straight leg or flared trousers.
