Finally found perfect BRA for me, American Apparel!

In Uncategorized on April 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm

I’ve been looking for a “not feeling like wearing it at all” bra for more than a year, not kidding. Finally found it at American Apparel, on-line and quick! It’s perfect if you don’t want your shirts and tops to look like you want people to see the bra you’re wearing, or the bra to change your natural shape that much. Anyway, it’s affordable, simple and crossed at the back, you have it in so many colours!

In ART, Iconic Woman on April 21, 2013 at 11:48 am

I already told you I respect older people, their experience is better than a book to me and Iris Apfel is amazing, adorable, smart, funny, so rare (if not totally unique) and one of a kind. Did you know she has a voice of a young woman? See this video please and listen to her:

PORTRAIT IRIS APFEL, video.

Ok, Iris Apfel is the excuse to recommend you the German VOGUE this month. What’s in there?

Please, no matter where you live, buy it!!!

VOGUE Spain April, Buy it!!

In Iconic Woman, Wonderful Looks&Outfits on April 19, 2013 at 8:02 am

To all Vogue and Fashion lovers, VOGUE Spain feeds you with new ideas this April. I personally love the colourful mix, the hats (we have an article with a professional “hat maker” and designer), the bags (oh the bags!) and the “gift that comes with it”. You have the regular magazine and another one with the choices of this season, shoes, belts, whatever.

The main editorial and interview is inspired by the 90′ fashion and modeling generation. So photos with Cindy, Linda, Helena, Naomi and Kate…and Victoria’s Secret model Candice S. wearing the 90’s inspired looks. If you don’t live in Spain don’t worry, neither do I!!! If you want some refreshing fashion on paper, buy it!!!

Is this cream? very light cream. It’s like white with a little drop of sunlight, that would be a way to describe the color. I’m a colour fixed person, you know that.

This little jacket works for all white shirt girls (is there any not white shirt girl out there?). It’s so elegant and stay at home style at the same time, and goes with the super cute little retro style dresses they have (Lazybones is THE BRAND to have a look). And the best thing is, SALES!!

It’s delicate, incredibly feminine, timeless, and maybe more than classic, it has “history”… don’t tell me really old-time underwear didn’t cross your mind… wonderful!!

I saw the scarf and picked it, some colors just work with your skin color, hair and eyes, that’s the great thing about scarfs is it?

An Icon: Veruschka

In ART, Iconic Woman on January 14, 2013 at 9:37 am

I’m reading a book by Veruschka, named like her, VERUSCHKA. For everybody who doesn’t know who she is ( is there anybody who doesn’t know her?), we could say that she was the first german supermodel at a time supermodels did not exist. Together with Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton or teenager Penelope Tree, she was one of the first girls who could make incredible amounts of money with modeling, still a new phenomenon at the time.

Here a picture of my book (you can buy it on Amazon if you’re interested) I highly recommend it to everyone because it’s not a supermodel book full of pictures by great professionals, it’s about a life that hasn’t ended yet. The book tells you many of Veruscka’s experiences she had during her childhood, youth and adult life, professional buy also very private events that help you understand her creativity, where it comes from and how Veruschka did invent and reinvent herself many times. I’m sure you will enjoy it very much. Sadly it just exists in german at the moment.

Here you got the link, if you like to see some pictures from inside the book publishing house, preview

I heard her say in an interview on TV, that she rather used fashion to do what she wanted. Something like “How do I  make enough money to do what i want, still doing what I like?”. She really feels that fashion was not her business, but she used it to be an artist. I’m glad she made the choices she made, because she leaves us incredible pictures and plenty of work we can be inspired by.

Here you have me in front of pictures of Verushka, it’s an article about her life I found in a newspaper, now it’s on my wall!! Just an excuse to show you my make up with my favourite wool dress you already know, I felt very comfortable and pretty. It was just before I went out for dinner two evenings ago.

Something has to go for something new to come in!!

In Wonderful Looks&Outfits on January 11, 2013 at 5:01 pm

Great quality does not necessarily mean to expensive, quality can be affordable isn’t it? I normally find the best clothes when I’m not looking for anything in particular, taking a walk and seeing what’s there to buy.

Sales and second-hand boutiques are great places to just take a look, also outlet stores (the last year I’ve also been looking up more things online). I enjoy it, because I love looking at everything, fabrics, colors, seeing what they’re made of, and maybe something that looks like it already belonged to me goes trough my hands, if that’s the case, I see how I would wear it and no matter if it costs a little bit more, I buy it. I would say that 90% of  the stuff I buy stays with me forever (by forever I mean more than 3 years, because that’s about the time a shirt is supposed to last today, unless you really pay, and I mean really!!). I know that some brands produce t-shirts and only expect people to use them for 2 years, and the brads with a guarantee, don’t guarantee anything for more than one or two years either.

It really takes just a second to see if some shirt is worth buying it, or if it’s just for a cuple of seasons. At least that’s what works for me, so that I don’t need new stuff all the time, and if I get something new it’s more for pleasure than because I need it. I follow the rule, “something needs to go for something new to come in”. Of course they are exceptions, if I really have a crush on something, and I know I’m going to put it on a lot, than I buy it without throwing something out, but every few months I look at all of my stuff, and see what’s there and should not be anymore!!
