Mixing prints

outfit3
t-shirt and skirt: ZARA; flannel and scarf: PULL&BEAR; boots: STRADIVARIUS

EN: I am taking advantage of the great weather that we are having to take some outfit pictures. I just love spring!

If you have been reading my blog for a long time, you kow that I have an obsession with prints and this outfit is a clear view of that statement. 
As you can see, I am wearing three different prints on my shirt, skirt and scarf –wait, how many "s" are there?!– At first, I was going to wear just a white cardigan but I thought that a black and white outfit was a bit boring. My second option was this flannel that I used as a cardigan and I really liked how the whole outfit turned out.

Now tell me, how do you feel about mixing different prints?

ES: Estoy aprovechando este buen tiempo que estamos teniendo para hacer algunas fotos de lo que estoy llevando últimamente. Y es que me encanta la primavera!

Si llevas leyendo mi blog durante un tiempo, sabrás que tengo una pequeña obsesión con los estampados! Y este conjunto es la prueba de ello.
Como podeis ver, llevo tres estampados diferentes en la camisa, la falda y el pañuelo. Al principio, iba a ponerme una chaqueta blanca pero pensé que iba a ser un poco aburrido combinando solo blanco y negro. Mi segunda opción era esta camisa de cuadros que hace la vez de chaqueta y la verdad es que me gusto mucho el resultado!

Ahora decidme, os gusta mezclar estampados diferentes?

Beyoncé's Tour Wardrobe








EN: Beyoncé finished her tour the Mrs. Carter Show a few days ago. I didn't have the chance to go to any of her shows but I'm sure that she was awesome!
One of my favorite things about concerts is the beautiful and amazing costumes that the artists wear. I always pay attention to the details as well as the effect that the costumes create in each song.

When I watched this video I fell in love with everything, so many sequins and sparkles made my eyes go crazy. Beyoncé really knows how to shine on stage!

Many of her tour costumes are from Versace, Emilio Pucci, Vrettos Vrettakos, Michael Costello, The Blonds and David Koma. All of them are very prestigious designers that have understood perfectly Beyoncé's concept.


ES: Beyoncé finalizó su tour Mrs. Carter Show hace unos dias. No he tenido la oportunidad de ir a ninguno de sus conciertos pero estoy segura de que fueron alucinantes!
Una de mis partes favoritas de los conciertos es el vestuario tan bonito que las artistas llevan. Siempre me fijo en los detalles así como en el efecto que producen en cada canción.

Cuando vi este video me enamoré de todo, me volvi loca al ver tantas lentejuelas y tanto brillo *-*. Beyoncé si que sabe brillar en el escenario!

Gran parte de su vesturio fue obra de Versace, Emilio Pucci, Vrettos Vrettakos, Michael Costello, The Blonds y David Koma. Todos ellos son diseñadores muy prestigiosos que han captado la esencia de Beyoncé a la perfección.

Spring Weather

EN: The spring weather inspired me to create this outfit. It was a good day. Sunny yet not too hot and no wind. It was perfect. Although my enthusiasm for spring is not represented on my clothes, floral prints are very springish, right? :) 



ES: El tiempo primaveral me ha inspirado en este conjunto. Fue un buen dia. Soleado pero no muy caluroso y sin viento. Fue perfecto. Aunque mi entusiasmo por la primavera no se ve reflejado en la ropa, los estampados florales son muy primaverales no? :)

Chanel Fall 2014



If you didn't know that this was the latest Chanel show, you would think that they are just fashionable people doing grocery shopping. Chanel joined the food trend but this time by turning the runway into the Chanel Shopping Center.
As you can see in the bag details, my favorite ones are the "lait de Coco" and the tray with a delicious Chanel bag-looking meat cake inside.
The comfy looks consisted of woollen sweaters combined with very colorful sneakers – I'm so glad sneakers won't abandon us next fall! – The ones with the holographic detail are beyond perfect! 

What caught your attention at the Chanel runway?

Moschino Fall 2014



Fall 2012 was all about Bart Simpson's head and this year Jeremy Scott went crazy with McDonalds, Spongebob and food packages.
Moschino is known for the bold pieces and Jeremy is an expert on that matter. 
The collection has brought back the Moschino belt trend but this time on boots and skirts.
As you can see in the following picture, some pieces were inspired on the classic jacket and skirt suit and quilted material that characterises Chanel.
If you thought that the print for next season would be plaid or leopard you're wrong, Spongebob black and yellow polka dots will take over the streets and you won't be able to do anything to stop it.
I like to see these pieces as something fun to wear, only those who don't care to be mistaken by a McDonalds waitress, an Spongebob fanatic or food will be the ones that will be head over heels about this collection. Now tell me, would you dare to wear this collection?

Haute Couture spring 2014 details. PART II





This is the last post about Haute Couture Spring 2014. The shows that I'm going to focus on are Maison Martin Margiela, Valentino and Schiaparelli.
What caught my attention in MMM runway was the embellished wig and trench coat which inspired me to recreate them with spare buttons, then I thought that I didn't have enough and my big illusion was crashed. The gilded boots were also my favorite part along with that eye with the hanging hair. I know, it looks crazy but I think it's cool and weird at the same time.
You may have noticed something familiar in Valentino's show... well one of the dresses will probably remind you of Katy Perry's attire for the Grammys. I love the embroideries and the gold tones of the collection and also the jungle-inspired design on the coats, I didn't expect the collection to be so mixed.
And I loved Schiaparelli's craziness in the accessories and the gold embroideries. When I saw the feather extensions, I thought of the 2011 trend... but then I really liked how the feathers were curled along with the color combination. 

Now tell me, which was your favorite collection from Haute Couture 2014?

Haute Couture spring 2014 details. PART I








Haute Couture is all about details and I want to focus on the ones that caught my attention this season. 
Chanel's pastel colors selection is probably my favorite. I love how delicate every piece looks with the use of the sheer materials and the embroidery. Christian Dior and Giambattista Valli played with flower details and patterns to create a delicate and feminine atmosphere. While Christian Dior wanted to add metal details with the shoes and accesories, Giambattista Valli preferred to work with shapes and color.
As I mentioned before, Chanel was my favorite but I also found interesting the color combination and the different textures that Giambattista Valli used in this collection.
