Embroidering your leggins!

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

Faux fur! Against animal cruelty

Faux Fur, against the animal cruelty
Crazy crazy with uni projects!!! but I’m here again to share my thoughst with you!
I’m Very sad to read some news about fur sales in the fashion industry :(  They have
been increasing 44% in the last ten years and young people are the main consumer,
I thought we were more conscious.  Over the past five years, the value of UK fur
sales has more than doubled. London is considered one of the most important retailers
of fur. I know is too cold these days! but approximately 2 million cats and dogs are
killed in China every year for fur. The decision is not on the stores, is on you!!
However, there are some social responsible brands and designers that have strict
no-fur rules! If you really want an amazing fur coat. Buy in those shops, here is the list:

The designers that refuse to use real fur in their collections are:

  • Stella McCartney
  • Calvin Klein
  • Ralph Lauren
  • Vivienne Westwood

By the way… I bought this amazing scarf in top shop I just love it because I can wear it with so many colours and jackets. Here are the pics and some other options you can buy,of course only false fur!!!!

Peach dress, for Day & Night!

For Day & Night prom dress!
Very happy to celebrate one of my friend’s birthday this weekend. I really wanted
something special to wear, I went to the top shop sales… look what I found! very
different from my style but how can I know if it looks great on me if I don’t try it!
This short prom dress with a low neck makes your waist look smaller, and your
bum a bit bigger haha . Moreover, It’s a very easy colour to mix it, take advantage
and wear it in the club or in a nice morning event. Wear black or natural colour
tights if the weather is as cold as London now. I hope you like it ;)

Rainy days in London

Rainy days in London! Now I’m seriously thinking new strategies for dealing with the shorter, darker and colder days to come! And this morning was worst when I found out on fb that Mexico was almost out of the world cup hahaha :(       I prefered taking a breath and walking around Saatchi Gallery trying to relax a bit after thinking about all the projects I have to submit soon at Uni that honestly I’ve had enjoyed a lot :) I hope I can share some of them with you! Meanwhile let’s start enjoying the winter outfits that are coming! This coat is a “must” in your wardrobe this winter. Thank you to my mexican friend Roger Alarcon for this amazing photoshoot, excellent photographer,  like his fb page Roger Alarcon photograph

Depresión post-futbol… después de enterarme en la mañana que México casi no va al mundial y mas con estos días lluviosos y grises que cada vez se vuelven mas cortos. Decidí mejor caminar y relajarme por saatchi gallery para oxigenar mi cerebro despues de trabajar en los proyectos que tengo que entregar pronto en la Uni, espero compartirles un poco de ellos aquí en el blog. Bueno… pero a disfrutar los outfits de invierno se ha dicho, que tal este abrigo con mangas negras? es un “must” para este invierno! excelentes combinaciones puedes hacer para que luzca mucho mejor. Muchas gracias a mi amigo mexicano Roger Alarcon por el photoshoot y la paciencia sobre todo! jaja Excelente fotógrafo, échenle un vistazo a su pagina de fb y denle like :) Roger Alarcon Photography

Tartan is back! Scottish style again in Fashion

Tartan history is linked with scottish culture, the tartan pattern represents most                                 of the time the Brisitsh traditional style such as Burberry -the main British fashion                                  icon- This autumn/winter 2013 all the brands have at least one or more garments                                in their collections to offer you.
I bought this gorgeous scarf in Johnstons of Elgin in Edinburgh when two of my                               best friends from Mexico came to visit me! I forgot I had it until I started seeing that                      everybody on the street were wearing the scottish tartan pattern. It doesn’t matter                              the garment you choose with a tartan pattern, give a scottish touch to your winter                                outfit! The most fashionable this season!

De los antros mas exclusivos de Londres!

Muy buen fin de semana!!!! mucha fiesta! Fue la bienvenida de una amiga mexicana que vino a estudiar también la maestría y por que no… celebrar en mi lugar favorito? “Tramp” es considerado una de los antros mas exclusivos de Londres, con mas de 40 años de historia, visitado por Frank Sinatra, los Beatles, el Principe Harry y mas celebridades. Me recuerda un poco a Love de Polanco en México, el antro que nunca pasa de moda y que es visitado por la farandula, pero bueno aquí no hay un Chepe en la entrada que decide si pasas o no…Que se necesita para poder entrar a Tramp? este es un antro de miembros privados localizado en Mayfair – una de las mejores zonas de Londres- el chiste no es solo el pago de la membresía que esta aproximadamente en 20 mil pesos también es el consumo mínimo de 10 mil pesos por mesa y para poder ser miembro necesitas ser recomendado por dos miembros mas, y esperar a ver si calificas por que aveces hay lista de espera de hasta de un año! Simplemente en la calidad del sonido te puedes dar cuenta por que es de los mejores lugares, parece que estas en un concierto! aparte el Dj es muy bueno y guapisimo si inspira a bailar toda la noche. Que tal, ehh??? Aquí si no hay manera de entrar si no eres miembro o invitado de un miembro, ya no se si es mejor tener a un Chepe en la entrada o cumplir con estos requisitos…

Aquí les dejo las fotos de mi outfit de este fin… una de mis joyas en mi guarda ropa, este vestido de top shop con un sexy bordado al costado y en el escote.
