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!

Starry Night

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!

The key to radical change

_MG_4873

Ever wonder what accessories can do to your outfit? Belting this palm print scarf on top of a green basic shift dress, gave my look a radical change; what could’ve been a boring  ensemble, instantly became a fetching outfit. To create an even more appealing look, I spattered a few more drops of colour by  wearing a pair of burgundy stilettos and a gray top handle bag. 

PS: These are the last pictures I took at Lobby!

Green Walls

Have I ever told you that I was once obsessed with interior design?
I would spend hours watching Divine Design and Design on a Dime yearning over the breathtaking transformations, and desiring to one day create sickly beautiful ambiances as the ones that Candice Olson so effortlessly delivered. As life happened, my career steered on a different path, but my appreciation and love of masterful interiors has never left me. I have to say, this is probably one of the reasons why, Lobby, a chic restaurant in the heart of San Salvador, has quickly become one of my favourite places to go to. So don’t be surprised if you see me drinking a few cocktails, or having a big mouthful of their succulent hummus and muhammara any time soon!

Happy Tuesday sweethearts!

Lobby

_MG_4818

Picture yourself making a great entrance into the lobby of a 1930’s hotel, welcomed by a solicitous butler, who instantly snatches your leather luggage off you. The moment you walk up to concierge, images come and go in your head that reminisce the luxurious design of The Grand Budapest Hotel, with its impeccable furniture, luscious details, and harmonious aesthetic. Every wall -even those in the restrooms-, light fixture, and sound at Lobby -one of the new must-go-to restaurants in the heart of San Salvador- has been carefully selected to create the atmosphere of a bygone setting.

Dress code: Smart; because this, high heel friendly bar and restaurant, is the perfect excuse to dress up, and flaunt your latest uber stylish purchases. The over all ambiance is one that will make you want to stay and lounge. 

And the desire to stick around pays off when their delicious entrees, main courses, and desserts come steaming out of the kitchen, with their wafting aromas. However, should food be not what your body is asking for, but something a little bit stronger instead, the bar will be a perfect fit for you. A personal favourite: their fruit flavoured gin & tonics, you just can’t go wrong. Oh!… And just as a final recommendation, definitely book a reservation, the place gets packed… EVERY NIGHT. 

PS: Be sure to stay tuned as I will be sharing with you more outfits shot at Lobby, so you can take in a bit more of the place!
