The Little Black Dress

IMG_2305

If there’s one thing better than buying good clothes &/or accessories, it would be buying them on sale! Sales are tricky, you have to rummage through mountain-like piles of crap before you can actually find a piece worth your while. But sometimes you get lucky and it makes you forget all the tediousness as if by magic. I’m bringing this up because both this black dress and the heels were found this way. When I spotted them, I couldn’t believe that nobody had bought them before me!  Anyway, I hope you like this outfit as much as I do, and don’t give up on those annoying sale piles. Sometimes treasure lies underneath it all.

The Motherly Dress

IMG_2241

When I wear this denim dress, I remember of that one time when one of my Canadian friends referring to my outfit, bluntly remarked: “you look so motherly.” She made me laugh. She also got me thinking about how different can perceptions be depending on the country. Back in El Salvador, whenever I wear the dress, I get showered with compliments (not of the “you look so motherly” type, but more of the “it is so beautiful, where did you get it from?” type.) However, it is precisely because of my friend’s comment that it thrills me to wear the dress even more. I like breaking molds, and fashion is such a fantastic way of doing it. I encourage you to try it. Yes, sometimes it can make you feel a bit out of place (believe me I know), but it is exactly that what makes you stand out and shine.

A Man’s Shirt

FINAL3

When it comes to fashion, I like to keep things interesting by playing around with what I have in hand. I think that introducing men’s clothing into my outfits is a cool way of incorporating unexpected twists into my wardrobe. I bought this shirt a while back, but I still love wearing it. Although I got it from the men’s department, the piece still maintains a certain feminine air to it, perhaps it is the pale pink coulour, or perhaps it is because I like to combine it with lady-like accessories such as, a jewelled necklace, a pair of heels, or (why not?) both. Let me know what you think of the outfit!

Leggings for a change

DSC_0127

I am not what you would call a leggings fan. As a matter of fact, if anything, I am its enemy (I would burn them all down if I could). However, I have to admit that for this look, the leggings actually work because of the length of the top. I love the combination of snakeskin and faux-leather: it’s daring, sexy, and somewhat powerful. To pull the look together I wore it with silver shoes and jewellery. I hope you guys like it!

PS: I just received my order of flash tattoos and they are unbelievably cool! I tried them out as the dotted gold ring on my finger. You got to love them!

Summer Dress

DSC_0006

This time I have a pretty good excuse for my absence in the past week… I’m currently on a family trip. We really haven’t stopped. As a matter of fact, I don’t have much time on my hands right now, but I really wanted to post a quick update.

Here is an outfit I’ve been meaning to share with you for a while. I love the easiness of this summer dress, which I can assure you will definitely look even better once I get a decent tan! In addition, the denim jacket maintains the laid-back mood. You can also pair it with flat sandals for a perfect beach look. One of my favourite accessories for this outfit are the friendship bracelets. They surely add that needed punch of colour! 

I got to go now, but I promise some great photographs are coming up soon! 🙂

By the Pool

DSC_1037

What I love most about this jumper is its colour, and how the shades of blue and turquoise merge in a harmonious print. Since the sweater is the focus of the outfit, I decided to pair it up with plain old navy shorts. Having a crisp pool as the background makes the combination look absolutely stunning, especially because the colours blend in perfectly! 

In addition, I wore the outfit with maroon lace-up heels, making the other colours stand out. I finished the look by painting my nails white, which really pulls it all together. 

PS: Thanks to my two lovely same-name friends, Rocíos! 😉
