Top 5: 2017 Golden Globes

I know, I know this post comes a bit late, but hey, better later than never! Award season has started. Back when I was living in London, as a fashion assistant to a celebrity stylist, I particularly remember this time of the year as one of the most hectic, nail-biting moments of them all. Now that I am on the other side of the lens, it all seems easier, more effortless, and definitely more glamorous. So with the tranquility of one who is only a spectator, but with the eye of one who is aware of what happens behind closed curtains, here are my top 5 looks from this year’s Golden Globes.

Let’s begin with Emily Ratajkowski. This Reem Acra look was perfection. The colour, the hair, the Hollywood glam, it was a flawlessly concocted attire. I am always searching for that one outfit that harmonizes sexiness and elegance, and to me, this was it. Allow me to say that it was Gold!

Beach Dreaming

IMG_9401

I hope you all enjoyed the few days off. New York was a nice break for me, but coming back home to the warm weather is always a pleasant feeling. I haven’t been able to go to the beach for a while now, and I really feel like I could use a good tan. I have realized too that I don’t own much beachwear pieces, and so I’m definitely on the hunt. I found this dress to be not only pretty but comfortable as well.

MBFWSV: Wrapping it up!

Summer Dream by Almacenes Simán


It was a long, arduous run to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, but looking back now, with a glass of perspective, it was really all worth it. The Salvadoran fashion industry became the center of attention in a way that it had never been before.

All of the shows were up to Mercedes Benz standards, and each one of them gave us a little something to relish on. The international ones: Guishem, Glaudi, Maria’s Bag, and Maison Escarlata showed us a bit of what our industry should aspire to be. Almacenes Simán took us in a journey to their own Summer Dream, where fashion and beauty bond perfectly. Andrea Ayala, Monica Arguedas, and AGR Jewellery proved us that there is a lot of potential in our tiny country. And the students gave us the crazy more creative twist that proves that fashion is also an art form.

Out of the six main collections presented, I would like to pin point two: Andrea Ayala and Monica Arguedas (mainly because they have been a part of Fashion Week El Salvador for a while now). It is no surprise that I liked Andrea Ayala’s designs, but this time, it was different, she blew my mind. The collection felt grown, filled with elegance, beauty, and sophistication. Inspired by the changing colours of the sunset, Andrea Ayala presented us with ethereal pieces that I’m sure many of us can’t wait to get our hands on.

On day 3 of MBFWSV, we were amazed by Monica Arguedas’s collection: 2.17. It was memorable. I have seen a couple of collections by the designer before, but I was yet to be impressed. However, that night, was HER night. Down the runway came a beautiful display of colours, prints, and textures. The design was inspiring; the execution, flawless; and the hair and make-up were on point. Every detail was taken care off, and the final result was a strong and chic collection.

I leave you with a few images of MBFWSV 2015. x

We are at the doorstep of April, and really, all I can think of now are holidays! Although I will be heading to the cold, I know that many of you are probably planning to go to the beach. So I thought you would love to see a few more summer looks. I loved the tribal detail on this dress that adds a special splash of colour and that makes it perfect for the season.
