Style lesson at Letto Valencia

Third series of our collaboration with "El andén de Marie Jo" and some of the spaces around Place Valencia. This time we were invited to shoot at Letto where we could take some interior design inspiration on their super cozy settings full of the trendiest furniture, bed sheets, blankets and home decor items someone could never imagine. Absolutely an style lesson where fashion and interior design were combined on a super successful match!

We went for a more glamorous, ready for a night out outfit, inspired by New Year's Eve and coming Christmas celebrations (still a pair of months away but, never say never when it comes to play dress up for events!). Straight and shorter dress than our previous proposals, it's still a super comfortable and chic option for an evening or night event filled with that lace front which gives the whole piece a really delicate and elegant touch. Some accessories are needed as well and we thought a comb and statement earrings were a good shot to the look. It also matched so nicely the whole ambiance that taking this pictures was not only super easy, but also fun and very regarding. Thanks to all the crew and people who helped us take this pictures and set everything!

What are you wearing this Fall?

Refined masculinity

White shirt and my cufflinks from Colette. I think I never tried that much the masculine look before, and I'm really sorry about that because it may be the most quick, easy to do and chic style I've been wearing on a long, long time!
It all depends on the amount of "manly" essence you want to add. As I didn't want to overdo it, I just tied up my hair on a super low ballerina bun (add as many tons of hairspray and hair gel as desired) and dusted off my blue suit pants from the closet. Pearl earrings, this super cute vintage Dior monogram bag and the rhinestone cufflinks add the balance talking about accessories on this outfit. Makeup is also necessary to achieve this elegant but comfortable look!

I wore this whole look to the third and last day of our 17 Valencia Fashion Week downtown, feeling exhausted of wearing high heels and staring hours and hours watching carefully all the shows I could handle. So, heeled flats were a must to finish on a successful way those three days of craziness. Because sneakers might be the most comfortable thing to walk on, but not for me on a Fashion Week. Sneakers are for casual outfits, jeans and sports. The key is to dress according to every occasion.

D&G fairytale inspiration. DIY circle skirt

Fashion week-esque outfit. Second day of local Fashion Week, and not really passionate about the "streetstyle" around and the general lack of unique style, original pieces, outfits and wannabe teenagers wearing 17cm heels, I decide to reveal against all this and wear this mix inspired by the latest Dolce & Gabanna shows creating a vibrant yet classy interpretation of the shows seen on Milan. Such a lucky girl I felt for finding this D&G neoprene fabric on a local fabric store, and turn it into a DIY circle skirt just in time!

We suffered from a really weird weather during those fashion days, and you could leave home on a super cloudy sky filled with cold air, but then arrive downtown to face that it wasn't raining anymore, and it started being warm again. That didn't make things easy at all. Add spending some hours between show and show, running from here to there, taking pictures while being as aware as possible to every single detail, and you had the perfect "I died because of tiredness" cocktail. It was great, but maybe next season I won't stay all the Fashion Week thing. Anyway, and at least during second day I was still able to wear high heels (as you can see). Some sparkly accessories to achieve that fairytale princess look D&G's been showing, and some black to balance the outfit. Unintentionally I attracted plenty of attraction, I think mostly because of the skirt.

I think that was the day I was spotted as a fashion blogger at first sight.
