White net dress

Sun and beach. I can't believe we had such an horrible weather last week and now we're having the sun shining all day long and temperatures which invite to go to the beach and swim on the sea. Easter holidays are coming next week and I'm super excited about them because I'll finally have some spare time. Chill out, meet my friends, sleep.

As weather has been super lovely this weekend, we went to Oropesa to spend the morning and enjoy the beachy vibes. If there is something I really like about this town among the quietness this time of the year, are the views of the bay on the hill where the lighthouse is placed. It was plenty of ladybugs and butterflies which got hooked on the net fabric of my dress.

As you might have read on recent posts, I'm really trying hard to twist the blog. Give it a total new and unique meaning, create content that interest you (because you are the readers, who really consume the photos we take and the things I write here), socialize, take Something Fashion to the next level. 
So, I would like to know...

What would you really see on a fashion blog? Are you really interested on ''outfit posts''? What do you think about collaborations with brands?

El tiempo entre costuras

el tiempo entre costuras, the time in between spanish fashion tv show series, sira quiroga, something fashion blog valencia

''El tiempo entre costuras''. Translated as The Time in Between is the TV series adaptation of María Dueñas' book with the same name, and my favorite (and I think the most awesome) series related to fashion I've seen ever.

Finding a fashion-centric series is very difficult, and specially a Spanish one. I'm sorry, but it's true. But this one caught my heart. Not only because the setting is breathtaking, the music truly awesome and the costumes and atrezzo amazing. There's also a beautiful story behind it.
Just for those of you who don't know the series (I think it's currently being adapted to other languages) or the book, here's a little synopsis:


''Suddenly left abandoned and penniless in Algiers by her lover, Sira Quiroga forges a new identity. Against all odds she becomes the most sought-after couture designer for the socialite wives of German Nazi officers. But she is soon embroiled in a dangerous political conspiracy as she passes information to the British Secret Service through a code stitched into the hems of her dresses.''


I really encourage you to watch it and get to know Sira and her adventures. Hope you enjoy this intriguing, passionate and fashion series as much as I did!

Horsing around

something fashion blog moda valencia spain, jardin de las hesperides, horsing outfit vintage jacket, braid hairstyle inspiration hermes birkin, rain boots fashion spain

Before someone asks me: I do not horse. My sport is fencing, forever fencing. But this outfit ended really looking a bit likely the ones worn by horse riders, with those caps and tailored competition blazers I'm totally in love with.

We've been having a crazy week talking about weather. It's been super cloudy everyday, but it has no rained at all. I hate that feeling of going out of home carrying tons of things (in addition to the usual portfolio, notebook and so on, let's take the umbrella too, just in case!) and then there falls not a drop of water. And the feeling of not having any idea on what to wear because if it rains, you're at great risk of ruining those shoes or pants which are anti-water (leather jackets and boots more precisely).

So, my idea for dealing with this situation? Rain boots. Everywhere. Anytime. With almost everything. This black ones were a great purchase: super comfy, durable and really easy to combine because of their color. I can also wear them on a daily basis without everyone noticing at all I'm wearing rain boots, which is cool. We went to a really amazing and peaceful place that day with our classmates, an almost secret garden on Valencia called ''El Jardín de las Hespérides'' and my outfit ended like so. Really sporty-chic inspired and a bit old-fashioned, ready for sand grounds on the garden and rain puddles on the city!

Let's talk Architecture: 5 houses in Valencia

RENDER2

Architecture. Apart from fashion, it's my other thing in my life I'm most passionate of. I'm very grateful I have had the chance to be studying it, and thanks to it discover what I really want to become on the future. Then you might be thinking... Why this post? We're in a blog about fashion, aren't we? Why is this crazy girl talking about this today?

Well, I think I've already said that once around here but never mind. Proportions, materials, colors, the way you build everything, work with volumes and textures, and manage to join everything on the correct way. Both fields have this concepts around, and you have to know about everything you would ever have imagined to take control. So, when a few days ago I rescued from one of the class folders the last project I worked on, I thought it could be great to show some images to you, create a conversation about it, get to know something is related to this blog in a sort of way but you don't usually see around here.

Basically we were supposed to virtually create on a patch near the University a group of 5 houses for 5 different families. My proposal consisted on a sort of shoebox where everything was placed on the inside. Two long walls set out the main volume to create more public and private spaces on the outside of the houses and cut the garden into two different places.

Working with this kind of things really let me see things on a different way. Since I'm working on this virtual projects, I'm always turning nuts about how to organize this or that (talking about everything, even when I cook a salad... It's crazy), how to combine this piece or no wait, because this would look better with this other one...

What about you? Does your career also influence you on your daily basis? Did you learn something that you think would be useful for getting dressed, go shopping or you could just transpose to the fashion field?
