5 years and a half

Floral crowns

This year, for the first time, I totally missed the birthday of Let me feel like a doll. I've been sharing my life with you all through my computer for 5 years and a half, I don't know of many of you have seen the first pics I'm posting today (just like the one on top! I look so tender and young) but I wanted to do a round-up of all those pics that I consider iconic of these 5 years and a half and that, even though it's been a long time, I still like, wether it is for how faithful to myself I've been through my style, that doesn't mean I would wear those clothes again, or the quality I could achieve in them even though I didn't know much about photography back then.

This post is the prelude of a very important surprise I have prepared for the next one, so, while you stay tunned to see what it's about, enjoy these pics and if you were already around here when I first posted them don't stay quiet!

Best streetstyle of the past fashion month

There are a few things that as a fashion desifn student I feel the obligation to do during the month that last the 4 most important fashion weeks in fashion industry, one of them is follow the shows but there's another one I sometimes enjou even more that's the streetstyle pictures of all those days. Even though fashion in shows is very interesting, I always like to see how those people, some anon and others I've been following for a while, not only combine the pieces from the fashion shows 6 months earlier (or the day before if it's Moschino) but, also, how they have such great looks when some of them go from fashion week to fashion week and dress the whole month from a suitcase.

This time, I was so surprised when I saw that the NYFW pictures at Vogue US were way worse than the ones in Vogue Spain, but at the time that I realised the photographer was Josefina Andrés I understood everything. Josegina is a Valencian photographer that happens to be part of a Facebook community in which I am part too, but it wasn't until Cynthia Bagué interviewed her at Somewhear that I discovered her magnificent work. Hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed gathering them, if you want to see more head over to my Tumblr!

Wandering around Paris

Wandering around Paris

The other trip I did this summer was to Paris. I must say that, even though it is a wonderful city that I've always loved, we didn't come back as happy as we did with Sicily. It was also another kind of trip, we went on our own and we wanted to do things and a bit of sightseeing.

We stayed at a small but beautiful studio we found on AirBnb by the Canal Saint Martin, and I must say that the night atmosphere by the canal was great! We discovered some great restaurants: an indian called Marcel and a bistro called Le Marine where we ate a delicious steak tartar. I had already been to most of the touristy places in the French capital on previous ocasions, we anyway repeated a few places like Notre Dame and the Louvre, and visited some other we hadn't seen like the Versailles palace, the Sainte Chapelle and Shakespeare & Co, the bookshop in "Before sunset" by Richard Linklater. We also did some geek sightseeing, went window-shopping in le Marais and went to a magnificent fashion exhibition from The 50s in which I could appreciate from a very close distance brilliant creations from Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, Balenciaga and Balmain.

La Sicilia è bellissima

La Sicilia è bellissima

Finally I could chatch up with all the pictures of my summer. Today it's about the week I spent in Sicily in August with the best hosts ever: Antonio and Giulianna, their respective and their group of friends that treated us more than great. We wanted to relax a little bit so we had a good balance between beach and sightseeing. We had never been to Sicily before, nor the south of Italy, but we were pleasantly surprised by how similar Italians are to us Spanish, not to talk how cheap everything was and how delicious the food was!

We spent the whole week in Catania and moved mostly around the coast up north of the city which were vulcano rock beaches created by the Etna, we visited the castle in Aci Castello and had the best granita of Catania in Acitrezza. One evenning we went to Taormina to have pizza for dinner, it was, for me, the most beautiful place we visited! Even though we couldn't visit the greek theater because there was a concert that day. We also went to the south of the island to visit Noto and swim at Cala Mosche at the Vendicari Nature Reserve. The last night we went to the Etna to observe the stars and see Catania from the height. We did love and enjoy the island so much we're already planning to go again next year, is somebody renting us a house?

Beach house

Beach house

Even though while you're reading this I am in Sicily (hopefully swimming in the sea, eating delicious pasta or having a siesta), here you have another post with pics from Portugal! We rented a little house through Airbnb which had a very original design but was a bit old and needed to be taken care of, a bit like everything in Portugal. Luckily the weather finally changed and it was nicer the last days so I could wear some more summer-ish clothes, more aproppiate for Hawaii maybe but, why not? In the end fashion is what allows us to create our fantasies without having to travel so far.
