Ponchos, conquering Londoners!

Ponchos- A traditional garment from latin american countries full of history and full of style! called in a different way in every country with a different design and fabric depending on the culture.

Unfortunately summer is over! But this season many Luxury and high street brands are taking advantage of the latin culture… Brands like Burberry, Vince Camuto, Etro, Topshop, Alice & Olivia has included Ponchos in their autumn/fall 2014 collection. With the rain.. London streets are dressing up with the poncho’s fashion trend.  Have a look on my Poncho’s top 5 list!

Rome – The eternal city?

Beauty / Travel

Rome- I thought nothing is forever, but apparently rome is! more than 2 millennia and it looks impeccable! I wasn’t expected less from this city… nice weather, food and warm people almost like my country… almoooost!!! Famous for its historical and interminable places to visit, colosseum, vatican, trevi fountain, pantheon, pffff! more and more. Was my first time in Rome  and definitely not the last! In terms of fashion?? Rome has one of the most fashionable streets ‘via condotti’ where you can find all the luxury brands like Burberry, Gucci, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and more… but if you prefer something made in Italy and different unknown fashion brands go straight to ‘Via cola di Rienzo’ where you will find good options at fair prices ;)

Oslo – where the sun never sets in summer

Oslo – The Norwegian capital with 27 degrees, my friends and I walked around the empty city asking ourselves where everyone was! In the end we found out that they were lying on the beach and soaking up the sun, it was so weird and funny to have sun almost 24 hrs a day in summer but during winter is totally the opposite.

It was an amazing experience to visit oslo! Besides its clear sky and beautiful views, Oslo is also known as one of the most expensive cities in the world and considered one of the most greenest cities. You will agree after visiting Vigelandsparken sculptures park , the opera house and  holmenkollen.

Where to eat?

We went to a traditional norweigian restaurant named Lorry’s, I tried reindeer meatballs with potatoes and some sweet salad on the side called tyttebær. Nice meal! You should visit Oslo and try it!

Portobello Market – Notting Hill

The third member of the team is here! Chris! We were waiting for her to go to one of my favourite places in London to walk around “Portobello market”. If you’ve seen the british romantic movie “Notting Hill” you must remember the book store located in this neighbourhood, famous for its unique vintage and antiques boutiques. We had lunch in a typical restaurant in Notting Hill Charlie’s cafe an enjoyable place to eat nice baguettes  and omelette, we loved it cause all the products are free-range and homegrown.

Notting Hill has a fashionable reputation…this is why I couldn’t resist to buy some clothes in a very good price! It’s definitely worth walking around to spot the latest fashion trends and buy unique pieces ;)

Very Happy to have my friends from Mexico in town! Enjoying and exploring new places in London that I’ve never been before. Little Venice is the small replica of Venice, Italy where Grand Union Canal Paddington Arm Connects with the River Thames. Just few minutes from Paddington station, this relax and calm place is surrounded to many boats some of them art galleries, floating restaurants and a small puppets’ theatre. I went with Sherin, my best friend to have lunch in the floating cafe “Waterside cafe“, such a nice experience I would suggest!!

The transparency of your soul!

27 degrees in London!!! wohooooooo \o/ Time to be transparent!

The spring/summer 2014 trend definitely helps you to show the transparency of your soul as well as giving a sexy touch in your outfit.

After Alexander Wang launched his Advisory campaign many designers felt inspired by the transparency trend… mixing transparent fabrics in their ss14 collections. I fell in love with this white long sleeves top from ZARA that matches with my Mango jeans and my favourite Top shop shoes.

EMBROIDERED LEGGINGS!
When you hear “embroidered leggings”, you think of a strange garment made by your
 grandma right? Well think again, have a look at these cool gothic leggings from Zara.
I know everybody has a basic pair of black leggings that go with everything, are you
tired of them? Give a special touch to your outfit and try embroidery this season, many
designers have used embroidery for their Spring 2014 collection!!!

The Pradamark effect!

Pradamark: The mix and match designers items and cheap essentials!

Sometimes we see people on the street with outfits that look like thousand pounds! Do they really wear expensive brands in everything they have on? Not really!! The Pradamark effect is new tendency since fast fashion took up part of our wardrobes. Mixing the basics (such as a black skirt, top or leggings that are easy to match with everything) with  some nice shoes or bag, just one designer garment is needed to enhance your outfit.

Why the name of prada – mark? It comes from the mix of Prada that represents the expensive side and primark the cheap. Now that you know the secret, go and buy the essentials like my black short only for £10 or less! and just invest in things worth buying ;)

Playa del Carmen, a bit of Maya fashion!

Long holidays in my country, Mexicooo!! After one year finally I came back for a
month only… I wish you a happy and successful 2014! Sorry for the delay
on writing but my master’s assessments, the luggage, christmas shopping and so on,
drove me crazy! Now I’m enjoying my family specially my nephew! :) I spent New year
with my parents in Playa del Carmen, my favourite place in Mexico… Even though the
weather wasn’t perfect I could get a nice tan! I would describe Playa as a “magic town”
a mix of mexican and european style. Food, night life, nice beaches and of course nice boutiques!!! !
Walking around the main avenue, that is called the 5th avenue,  I found some nice
boutiques that I want to share with you, the pictures below are from the “Textiles
Mayas Chipas” that is located just in the main avenue. Amazing for its items but also
but the environment…
They have a big picture of the “Virgin of Guadalupe” inside the store that makes you
feel more the mexican style! All the products are made by mayan people living in Chiapas,
located in the south east of Mexico. Hope you like the combination I made with my Zara
dress I bought months ago in London, I always wear it with tights but this time was perfect
for the beach. Don’t miss the next post! it will be about a sustainable and innovative
mexican boutique. See you in a while!!! =P
