I can't believe we're in the middle of May and we just suffered the most terrible and suffocating heat wave just two days ago. Almost 50ºC at noon in Valencia, which is even a weird temperature at August. Incredible! Thanks I've been mostly stuck at home finishing my project and homework (you can see some sneak peaks at my Instagram account and Facebook page as well) for the last weeks. Not that I'm fond of not seeing sunlight for great periods of time but, sometimes when it's too warm outside, being on workaholic mood helps a little bit.

So. We shot this outfit about a month ago when it wasn't too warm outside and cherry trees just started blossoming around the city. If there's a thing I love about Valencia it's that downtown streets are mostly covered by trees and it's quite pleasuring walking there in Spring. I'm glad I finally found my perfect hot pink biker jacket to match them! I've been looking for one like it for many years, but hot pink it's not like the most natural, average color when it comes to leather jackets... So, thanks to Coach New York I found the final one for me! Thanks to its color it looks truly girly, but the material and shape makes it super relaxed. I feel like an scoundrel!

I paired it with this vintage, rhinestone clip earrings I found on a thrift store at Salamanca. I usually prefer wearing omega clip earrings, as I feel them more assured on my ears (kind of crazy, isn't it?) and they're way difficult to get lost or fall in case they got snagged with clothing or scarfs or anything. But this ones are like the perfect match for my ears, and I even feel in the mood of wearing them everyday! That's why I think jewelry pieces are such a personal issue, not only talking about shapes and colors, but also talking about how they fit and how comfortable you feel wearing some pieces.

Leaving you on my way to final exams and new projects coming hopefully soon! Good luck everyone with your prom days, final exams and tests, and remember to stay tuned at the social media if you want to hear something from me on coming weeks.

The thing I hate the most when preparing for a trip is figuring out what I'm carrying with me. Not the whole packing ritual itself, but looking at weather reports weeks far away (which we know they're totally terrible and unreliable at all) so I can figure out if I must take with me tons of warm and cozy sweaters, or pack the most comfortable shorts and sneakers. That's the funny thing that happened to me when going to our trip to Extremadura some weeks ago. Weather totally fooled me, and I ended packing my most dressy, spring trip outfits to find that it was cold and rainy the whole week I was out home. The coziest thing I took with me was this COS sweater with a front faux leather piece, and it wasn't even close the best idea to wear.

That's the story behind this outfit, which I see like the most rare and bloguerish outfit I've ever worn. I'm wearing a long, straight and dressy neoprene dress, with my everyday flats, a casual sweatshirt and a lent raincoat with a bag I usually wear on summer. The weirdest ever. Comfortable to do some sightseeing on this unique place which is Salamanca, but never again! Next time I'll take my umbrella and sneakers. Thanks we found this car history museum and got some rain shelter for a while and also took some funny pictures around there.

For all of you who are already following #somethingfashion on Instagram, you might know that I'm working like a crazy thing on my final project for this year and I'm very busy! I started my workaholic mood about month and a half ago, and I haven't stopped doing things, working on floor plans, models, volumes and images since then. Final exams and deliveries are coming, and that means a little hiatus mode, but you know I'll always be procrastinating at IG, so go see what's up there and say hi :)

There we go guys. The tutorial about making this "Toile de Jouy" vintage skirt is finally here! You can't even imagine how long it took us to shot every picture, and also draw the diagrams so everything was clear and super understandable for you to successfully sew it and get along with the instructions. So, enjoy and remember to share with me via social network (Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter) the results by using the tag #somethingfashion!

Supplies you'll need:

  • 150 cm x 150cm aprox. of a tight and heavy fabric like canvas or neoprene. For a more accurate dimension, measure your waist and double it.
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread. Preferably you'll need thread on the most accurate color possible for the fabric, and thread on the most opposite color for basting with large stitches.
  • Sewing machine (or you can hand-sew it)
  • 20cm zipper
  • Iron
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins. Tons of them

  • Step 1: You're going to fold your huuuuge fabric in half, allowing a seam allowance following the next scheme:

The seam is about 2 or 3 cm on each side on the inside of the fabric (or the side you're not going to see once it's finished). You're going to pin it before folding in half the fabric. Then, sew it with your sewing machine.

Golden trousers and brocade slippers

Found this pictures today around the laptop, and couldn't believe I didn't share them before. Maybe they've been around since before last summer holidays, but I don't really know why I didn't post them before. I think we took this pictures about a year ago in the beach of Oropesa. I can't see the moment of coming back there for summer holidays to chill and feel the sun and the sand on my skin! It's close but, not closer enough as it's only a month away for exams and college stuff to finish. Duh.

Being honest, I'm not able to remember where those Nine West brocade slippers I'm wearing on the pictures ended. I remember they hurt my feet like hell (my fault. I bought them the wrong size) so maybe they're deep, deep inside my closet on a box with huge, red "CAUTION" letters on it. I don't usually lose pieces of clothing. I lose sight of them sometimes, but they always return to me when I don't need them or I'm not searching like a crazy thing. I can say I'm a real mess with things, specially class things as I'm always working around with tons of plans, papers, markers and drawing stuff. But I do organize really well my closet so I can see in every moment what's there. So, I'll let you know what happened to this pair of shoes when I find them.

The outfit it's not a big deal as it's a total black outfit filled with this golden trousers found seasons ago at Zara, and which have become a real basic I wear a lot. I even bought them in silver because they're comfortable and really cool.

Haven't you ever got two or three times the same clothing piece, or the same pair of shoes because you feel really good wearing it?

Square trousers

Back to my Easter trip to Mérida and around all Extremadura and part of Spain. You can't really imagine how fooled I felt by the weather man there! As it was cloudy but not cold here in Valencia, we were surprised to deal with this terrible rainy, freezing and disturbing weather the whole week. Have you ever done sightseeing on this conditions? If you have, you must know what it feels like to carry the whole day an umbrella with your camera, with your raincoat or sweater "in case of". Plus, there's that moment when you realize you didn't carry with you enough cozy clothing to face the temperature, and the only thing you can do is mix and put all together on the strangest way the warmest things you packed. In my case, this COS black sweatshirt which is kind of sporty, but somehow I ended pairing it with this square dressy trousers and heels. And of course this super classy and sparkly earrings I bought on a typical jeweler downtown, because the zone is not only know for its ancient roman culture and ruins, but also because of their gold and silver craftsmanship pieces. 

Despite the weather and conditions, we could manage to do some visits and take really cool architecture and detail pictures as this ones taken at the Mérida Auditorium and Convention Centre built by Nieto and Sobejano, whose works I really like! I find amazing the façade detail of this building, but then you look at some of their projects and they're as nice as this one is.
Then we stopped at Salamanca and Madrid on the quickest way possible and then return home to get ready for this two-craziness-months coming with all the exams and homework stuff, which includes my final project for this curse (you can see some of the things going on at my Instagram account).

By the way! Some of you noticed my quite recent haircut (quite visible, isn't it? Haha) and asked why now as I've always worn my hair quite long. I'd just say that recently I started being bored of some things that happened around me, and realized that those things only happened because I needed a brand-new point of view. A new perspective to start being me again and don't look back! So, I thought a new hairstyle would help, and let's say, it just hasn't only helped, but it's also easier to style so, I'm very happy with the change! Sometimes we need a little thing to turn upside down our perspective and start from zero, don't you think?
