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

_MG_6211

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.

MBFWSV: Andrea Ayala

Desde hace ratos, deseábamos ver a Andrea Ayala brillar en una pasarela y, al fin, se nos concedió. La colección complació gratamente, colmando el salón de lazos, flores y grandes vuelos. El factor omnipresente de la pasarela, que aportó cohesión a la propuesta, fue la feminidad. Una feminidad, tierna y sensual, a la vez; una feminidad, que dejó al descubierto hombros, clavículas y espaldas; una feminidad, que, ante todo, infundía sofisticación.

Starry Night

_MG_5264
I had to stop myself from crying. It was a very emotional moment to see Lumi sprint down the runway, stand mid-catwalk and shyly, but excitedly grin to the roaring crowd. It was all I could do not to race to where she was, and shamelessly embrace her. I didn’t think I would feel such a whirlwind of emotions surge inside of me, but I did.

Weeks before that moment, I received a text: “Andrea, I would like to dress you for fashion week”. “YASS!!” My heart leapt for joy! For me, who am a total sucker for the brand, there was no better way to show up at fashion week, than dressed up in Lumi!

Two days before the shows, I squeezed in a fitting into my schedule. When Lumi showed me the collection, it made me shiver! It was SOOO GOOD!! I was left pining for every piece. The thrill multiplied by 3 when the models strolled past my eyes. Seeing Lumi shine at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week El Salvador, made me swell with pride. Wearing this cute look, gave me the splendid sensation of being a part of something great, something vast as a starry night. Bravo, Lumi!

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.

MBFWSV: Gerladine García

_MG_0834-copia

Geraldine García es una marca cuya feminidad y delicadeza suelen ser capaces de arroparnos y embebernos en el mundo de la diseñadora. Por eso, es muy notable cuando sus colecciones se quedan cortas. Si la última presentación para Light Up nos había dejado un poco decepcionados, ésta tampoco logró saciarnos. A pesar de que hubo varios looks que fácilmente se verán en las calles, en su mayoría, los acabados fueron pobres y ciertos materiales parecían de poca calidad.
