Every little matters

December 10, 2018
Style Indigo featuring sustainable products

There are many things we have to take care of during our everyday life. For that reason, our brain automated some of our actions. Is a way to safe our mental energy for more important or newer things. But on this automated state is very hard to question our actions. There are many small things we do every day that harm the environment, and we don’t even notice them. I am trying to avoid this irresponsible, and at the same time human behaviour and change small routines in my life.

Pearls are forever

December 7, 2018

Time passed and one of the few objects that remain is the jewelry. Every woman owned a piece that has belonged to her family for a few generations. For that reason, getting a new piece of jewelry should be a thoughtful decision. It is better to go for a timeless design, and if you can also add sustainability into the decision making process, even better!!

Art and fashion go hand in hand. Art has been a fashion inspiration in innumerable occasions and some of the most iconic fashion pieces in history are clear examples of this close relationship. As the Mondrian dress by Yves Saint Laurent; the Warhol jumpsuit by Versace or the Byzantine virgins in the Dolce & Gabbana FW 2014. You can see these examples in the images below.

Streets of Marseilles, an antiques store

I met Carlos Blanco few weeks ago, and we immediately clicked! His passion for engineering and sustainability, as well as his broad knowledge on green energies make his conversation about sustainability interesting and pedagogical. It soon became clear that he was meant to be part of Style Indigo!

Today, I am happy to announce that he will become a collaborator on this blog and without further delay I leave you with his first post. Hope you like it!

Pleats are fascinating!!

Pleats are an intrinsic part of fashion and I find their story fascinating! Pleated fabrics go back as far as the ancient Egyptian civilization, were the Pharaohs and aristocracy used to wear them as a symbol of power and wealth. Pleating was done by hand and a mixed egg was placed over the linen fabric to preserve the pleat. But when the fabrics were washed the pleats will vanish and the process will start all over again, making the pleated garments a very luxurious product. Another great ancient civilization that made the pleated garments part of their identity were the Greeks. We all have in mind the gorgeous Greek caryatids wearing their beautiful pleated tunics or peplum.

Style Indigo wearing a pink dress as a shirt to achieve the 30 wears challenge

It’s been over a year since I started writing this blog and the concept I have been highlighting the most is the #30wears challenge. For the newcomers, it consists of wearing all your clothes 30 times or more before you discard them. It also applies to every new garment, before arriving to the till, you should wonder if you would be able to wear it at least 30 times, if the answer is no, then you shouldn’t buy it. If you want to know more, check this post!

Natural beauty remedies!

style Indigo using Olive oil as a natural beauty remedy

The best fashion accessory to any of your looks is a great and healthy hair!! I haven’t carried long hair since I was in high school. For many many years I used to wear a pixie style (many years before it was trendy), which most people think that flatters me a lot! Lately, is growing, and I am trying to hold myself and letting it long. But here comes the issue, since I have never carried long hair, I don’t really know how to take care of it and lately was looking frizzy and unhealthy, as you can see in my previous post. I’ve started using my sisters conditioners and serums, but they were just a momentary repair, plus I was concerned about how sustainable and healthy those products are. So I tried the traditional way and the results are AMAZING!!

Polka Dots!!

June 5, 2018

Polka dots are par excellence the most Spanish print, and fortunately are on trend this season! Since my move back to Spain I feel like including part of my country iconography in my looks, and this print is a great way to go. I love how versatile polka dots are, you can either wear them in a very casual way, such as the outfit I am wearing today, or give them an upgrade for a smart look, as the one I was wearing last summer for a wedding, as you can see here! This season polka dots are everywhere, they have taken over the street style, as it was predicted during the SS18 catwalks.
