Birthday girl

Birthday girl


When I saw the Miranda Makaroff for Lydia Delgado SS14 collection I fell in love with everything. Not only it's been inspired by the Miami Art Decó architecture, which you know that I love, but also the shapes of the clothes are very wearable and flattering. Years ago I wanted things from other collections but didn't get them so this year I couldn't let the pink bodycon dress with the Calypso print pass, so since my birthday was coming closer and my parents wanted to get me something I told them I already knew what I wanted.

As you can imagine, tomorrow is a very especial day for me since I'm turning 23 and, like every birthday, you don't turn that every day. These kind of dates make me think about the things I've been through and how I've evolved as a human being. I don't know if, when I had just turned 18, that I started Let me feel like a doll, I could imagine that 5 years later I'd be still here. I don't know how long you've been following, reading my texts and seeing my pictures but I have to say that, generaly, I'm happy about how life has treated me. Hope you all have a great weekend and a happy Easter in case you celebrate it!! ;)

Black and white

Black and white


Even though I love Spring, it is very difficult for me to dress at this time of the year since the warm temperatures only last for a couple of hours I generally end up using my winter coats on a daily basis and never get to enjoy the Spring style until it's May or June and it's hot all day. That's why I've been trying and forcing myself to wear outfits that are not 100% Winter-ish nor Summer-ish (which is why I usually do!) and I think I can be proud of myself with the outfit in this post since it's not only a proper Spring outfit but I've made a good mix of black and white two colors that I don't normally wear alone from other colors, and one always has to try new things, don't we?

Spring blossoms

Last weekend I was in el Montseny, I don't normally go out of Barcelona and when I do it I always feel like it's a very especial day. This time, since it is Spring, all the trees were looking beautiful so I took the chance to wear my hat from the final project from a fellow student in my uni: Natalia Machado (you might remember I already told you about her!).

The thing is that the story about how I got this hat is quite funny, I've known Natalia for years but it wasn't her who sent it to me, in fact, a few months ago I went to the Lost&Found with my friends and while we were having a walk to see all the stalls we saw this hat and next to them a pair of shoes that were also part of Natalia's project, we all know her and we were astonished wondering "Is this hers or not?" and we started looking around to see if she was ther but we didn't find her. I finally took the hat convinced that I was going to buy it and a woman came to assist us and tell us that the hat was from her daughter's university final project, she got a great surprise when we told her we already knew! haha

Retro swimwear

Retro swimwear


A few days ago I was asked in Instagram to talk about where to find vintage style swimwear so today I'm posting a whole article about that! I love swimwear, just like lingerie. The bad thing is that in summer I don't really go to the beach so I have a drawer full of beautiful swimsuits and bikinis that I hardly wear, this year, one of my resolutions is not to buy ANY new swuimsuit so you can imagine how searching so many for this post has been like, I just hope you find it useful.

Swimwear has evolved a lot during the 20th Century, and not only because of the shapes, but because of the fabrics and making technology. Swimwear from the 50s and 60s was made with much more rigid and thick materials than the spandex used nowadays, but everything in this post is only inspired in those decades so don't worry because they're all swimsuits/bikinis like the ones you know. Step by step:

I feel like I'm always speaking about things from my childhood and I feel quite sorry for that, anyway, those first experiences are something that affects our personality during those important years of our lives. Today I wanted to mention the American high school films, for those that haven't been born there (I think I can speak in plural since I believe I'm not the only one that's felt like this) everything that we see in those films has always been fascinatinv. Teenagers driving, enormous high schools in which there are students that don't know each other, prom, blonde girls dressed in pink,... But especially: cheerleader uniforms. Please, correct me if I'm not the only one that has always loved such things!!!

Today's outfit is very american college style, I just needed two ponytails ala Britney Spears but it felt like it was too much! The sweater reminds me a lot to that scene in Grease in which John Travolta appears dressed like a good boy but, of course, I combined it with pink for a more feminine version of that look.
