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!
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.
I blame Johanna Ortiz for my fixation on naked shoulders, and Ellery for the one on flared everything (sleeves, hemlines…). And what do you know?, this black bodysuit combines them both!
I literally, grabbed it on my way out of the store. After fine combing the place from top to bottom, I was stepping out, when my eyes fell upon the ample sleeves. I grabbed the bodysuit, pulled one sleeve up to a 90 degree angle, and fell in love with the cascading extra cloth that draped gracefully. Despite de unpracticality of it, -I mean, for real, who needs XL sleeves plunging into glasses or sweeping across the table?,- its crushing style blur the unlucky scenarios away.
By now, I have lost count on the amount of times that I have proclaimed our shoulders to be the hottest couple of the moment! Believe me when I say that they are, at the same time, your best allies, and your sharpest weapon to conquer the streets. From a girl who has tried on as many possible variations of the off-the-shoulder trend to you, the one that I find more comfortable is when the sleeves come “detached” from the main part of the top, such as the one I’m wearing on this post; that way the sleeves won’t be rolling up at your every move.
