Choker Tops

_MG_4973

Choker tops have permeated my IG feed for a while, but until now, the closest I had come in contact with them was through the tips of my fidgety fingers on the screen. As much as I love trying new trends, I hadn’t attempted to make the style my own. So it was by time that I did. Here is a personal summary of my experience:

  1. Perfect piece for an everyday look.
  2. Necklaces are optional, if not obsolete.
  3. At all costs, avoid wearing it on hot summer days.

Have you tried choker tops? What’s your intake? Let me know if there is a trend in particular you want me to try!

Your Light Version

Hello, gorgeous people! Although, since last Thursday, I’ve been on total holiday mode, I couldn’t really forget about all of you!

Quick Questions: Are you low waist or high waist? Dark or light? For the sake of this post let’s concur on hight waist jeans. As per the hue matter, I can satisfy both cravings, just grab a number, and wait to be called out.

Ready to Battle

_MG_1936

Army green is hands down one of my preferred colours to wear, perhaps because it combines well with so many others (pink, mustard, camel, black, orange,…); or maybe, because of the cool, ready to battle feel that it discharges. Now that I come to think about it, it also happens to be a staple colour of one of my favourite casual brands: Marissa Webb. So maybe it is a little bit of all of this together what pulls me towards the hue. Whatever it may be, here is a look that revolves around the concept of strength and combat, a mood that is given by the cargo jeans and the killer Vince Camuto laser-cut heels.

Floral Denim

Last week, I was pretty much a guest at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Three, of the five days, of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week took place at the newly built convention centre and its terrace. So unsurprisingly, I decided to shoot a few looks there.

What’s New: Mon Guerlain

Hi gorgeous people! About a month ago I was invited to a private preview of a new fragrance. It was a very busy February afternoon, and the surroundings of the Barceló Hotel were car jammed. After 15 minutes of desperately searching for a parking spot, I finally dashed into the foyer of the hotel, and up to its opulent Mezanine, were a selected group of people -ranging from press, to opinion leaders, to image consultants- gathered in animated expectation. Ten minutes later, the doors of a small, barely lit salon opened. Despite the various test tubes and erlenmeyer flasks, carefully arranged on tables and shelf units around the room, a white loveseat and various ottomans, encircling a lacquered coffee table, in the middle of the suite, gave the room a homely feel.

Once we were all settled in, the poised representative of Guerlain Latin America, a well suited gentleman, talked us through the brand’s new big release. Everything about it was exquisite. The inspiration, the product, the campaign; it was all beautifully curated to deliver us with an exceptional fragrance. What I was expecting to be a stifling, overly sweet essence, actually turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I sprayed a dash of Mon Guerlain on the back of my wrist and already my nosebuds could pick up the elegantly fresh, but lavish smell of the perfume. As each one of the attendees showered their wrists and necks with the iridescent pink essence, a rich lavender aroma, tinted with notes of vanilla, jasmine, and wood wafted daintily filling up the suite. By then, flutes of champagne and chocolate coated strawberries were brought about by a couple of black and white clad waiters. Later that evening, I was amazed at the long-lasting effect of the luscious perfume, which made me even more obsessed about it. I truly, wish you can all try the new fragrance which is now available at Almacenes Simán
