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.

When size matter!

June 1, 2018

Until not that long ago, wearing second-hand clothes in Spain used to have very negative connotations. Actually, old people still things that you should wear brand-new clothes, and find hard to understand that you appreciate something that used to belong to someone else. Luckily, young people, mainly in big cities such as Madrid and Barcelona, are changing their minds and start consuming preloved clothes and appreciating the history behind those garments. Since the habits are changing, amazing vintage spots are popping here and there.

It might take a lot of time, but it is a great exercise to edit your wardrobe and become fully aware of all the clothes you already own and save yourself time long term!

Yellow submarine!

January 20, 2018

I must confess that I haven’t resisted the sales and a few days ago I bought a couple of vintage jumpers. As you know, I have spent most of the winter borrowing jumpers from my husband’s closet, which I love, as you can see here, but I wanted something a little bit slimmer and more feminine! It was love at first sign with this angora jumper!

Is all about the content!!

January 11, 2018

Lately, my biggest obsession is about clothing composition. The material from which clothes are made is of significant importance when I acquire a new garment and I love the natural “noble” fibres, such as cashmere, linen or silk, well, who doesn’t? I guess the reason for this obsession is that in my experience the clothes made out of this materials are the ones that end up lasting the longest. My mother has passed me down amazing leather accessories or beautiful silk shirts, whereas most of the plastic based clothing ended up being discarded! When purchasing preloved clothes, I am prepared to pay a little extra for high-quality garments, which are usually produced from natural fibres.

Coloring the holidays!!

December 21, 2017

A few weeks ago, I find out that my husband is allergic to lambswool (I knew he was intolerant but his allergic has got much worse in the last few week) and it is a pity because I have to put away a few very nice winter jumpers. I am keeping them on the side because I haven’t made my mind whether I should give them away or keep them and hope that my husband’s allergy would eventually improve.
