Festival time, festival look

Whatever is your favorite music festival: Coachella, Burning Man, Glastonbury, or les Deferlantes you have to be ready because now starts the countdown. The first Coachella the 15th of April at Empire Polo Club in Indio, California and then, not stopping until late summer. The look that is imposed is the boho-hippie look and  already there are brands such as H&M or Asos have launched a special festival collection.

What to put in your suitcase? Denim shorts, t-shirts, loose blouses, hippie and white or  floral dresses, flat sandals or if you go to Glastonbury don’t forget a pair of wellies. To complete the look: sunglasses, a hat to protect you from the sun and many, many bracelets and necklaces Hipanema style.

These are my choices for the festival look. Which one is you favorite one?

Sea cual sea tu festival de música favorito: Coachella, Burning man, Gastonbury, o les deferlantes hay que estar preparada porque ya comienza la cuenta atrás. El primero, Coachella el 15 de abril en Empire Polo Club in Indio, California y así, sin parar hasta finales de verano. El look que se impone es el estilo boho-hippie y ya hay marcas como H&M o Asos que ya han lanzado una línea de ropa especial festivales.

 Qué meter en la maleta? Un short vaquero, camisetas, blusas sueltas, vestidos sueltos blancos o florales, sandalias planas o si vas a Gastonbury no olvides unas botas de agua. Para completar el look gafas de sol, un sombrero para protegerte del sol y muchas, muchas pulseras y collares tipo Hipanema.

Estas son mis propuestas para conseguir el look festivalero. Cuál os gusta más?

Balmain: he arrived, he left

Hello, how is everything? Did you get anything from Balmain for H&M yesterday? I got a couple of pieces, and that was it! On the website,(when I managed to get in) there was almost nothing . Everything was finished in few hours! what a success !!! At least, I  got this black trousers and this bracelet.

I wanted to buy these earrings and this bracelet but it was impossible!!! too late!! Also  the website was collapsed the whole morning and I didn’t get access until 12!.

In some store was even worse, long queues and then people running and scrambling to get  some pieces. Check the video in this article, it was crazy!

Well, at least I got something, I can not complain. Now I can’t wait to see what I got.

It is not the first time that H&M works with well-known fashion designers, these collaborations started in 2004 with Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld, here the list of previous collaborations with designers:

  • 2004: Karl Lagerfeld
  • 2005: Stella McCartney, Elio Fiorucci, Solange Azagury-Partridge
  • 2006: Viktor & Rolf
  • 2007: Roberto Cavalli
  • 2008: Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons
  • 2009: Matthew Williamson, Jimmy Choo, Sonia Rykiel
  • 2010: Sonia Rykiel, Lanvin
  • 2011: Versace
  • 2012: Versace, Marni, Maison Martin Margiela
  • 2013: Isabel Marant
  • 2014: Alexander Wang

And here I show you some of my acquisitions over the years:

Roberto Cavalli. My first purchase was this Roberto Cavalli dress, I have a lot of affection for it. Still it’s in my closet and I wear it  occasionally. This picture is from this summer.

Matthew Williamson. Everybody likes this dress, one of the best investment I made! I bought it in 2009 and it’s still in perfect conditions.

IMG_6393 IMG_6431

Jimmy Choo. After long hours of queuing I only managed to buy this bracelet 😦 but after a few weeks I found this dress in the  H&M Edinburgh, what a nice surprise!

Lanvin. The last time I was wearing it in a wedding a year ago,  I keep it for special occasions

IMG_5839

Versace. The truth is that this dress fits like a glove! Perfect for any summer night.

IMG_5597

Alexander Wang. Top and leggings for the gym

IMG_8135

And now Balmain, no dresses this time, anyway we will see how the look that trousers !!!

So, these are my little treasures.

And you, did you manage to buy anything? did you spend long time queuing or in front of  the computer? Tell us your experience.

See you next week, have a very good weekend! and thanks for reading

How to be stylish at home: some ideas

What do you wear at home? Most of us like to wear something loose and comfy, right? But are you wearing whatever you find in your closet? Old and broken clothes that you are not wearing anymore; or are you still in your pyjamas? You think that because you are at home you can not be sexy or stylish? What happen if unexpected friend ring your bell? Will you run to your room to change?

For our information, there is also fashion at home. Many brands (ZaraHome, Oysho, Undiz, Etam…) design clothes specifically to wear at home. Another option is to buy some basic items and add them to your daily home clothes.

Here I bring you some ideas to make you feel stylish but comfy at home without much effort and without spending a fortune. I added some tops, loose trousers and leggings; usually I don’t like to wear jeans; dresses (why not!?); ponchos to warm you up; and slippers. To find slippers that I like was the most difficult, because I don’t like to wear slippers that look like slippers (just me!). For summer I use flip-flop or espartine shoes and in winter I prefer ballerinas or boots like the UGG style.

How to wear a skirt- help!

Bonjour!

For this blog I’d like to have your help. I don’t want to write a blog about how to wear a skirt, I want the opposite, I need your help, I am looking for advice. My problem is that I always finish with several skirts in my wardrobe and at the end I never wore them or I did but I always finish wearing with the same top, same shoes, same bags…….. Boring! I need more ideas, I need your ideas.

Let’s do something different here, I will start with 3 skirts I already have and I will show you the way I usually wear them and then we can discuss other possible looks. I’d like to know if you like it or nor, or if you have other better ideas.

Here is the first one. I think  I bought it 2 years ago, and it’s Manoush, a French brand that I mention it already in one of my previous blogs. I like a lot the colors and  the mix of patterns, I love it!!!

IMG_0058 IMG_0052

I have already worn it few times and I have 2 possible looks depending on the season. Usually I wear it in Autumn-Spring time. Here, the  looks:

-with a denim shirt

IMG_0061

-with a high neck pullover

IMG_0059

Usually, I don’t wear it in winter because I don’t have any jacket or coat to combine it and I don’t know how. Maybe with a fur gilet will look nice. Any help here? The bag is Antik Batik a french brand that j’adore!

IMG_0100

 

Depending on the weather I combine with sandals or ankle boots, these are from the Italian brand Ash.

photo-3

 

This one is from ZARA, I bought many years ago and still I wear it every winter and I think I will for many more years, the snake pattern will never be out of fashion. Usually I combine with different black tops, this one is from Carol, and black tights. Bag Antik Batik.

IMG_0054IMG_0066

IMG_0067IMG_0102

Any other suggestions?

 

I combine with 2 different ankle boots (Mango and Ash).

IMG_0107

 

More ideas?

The third one is from H&M. I think cost me only 20 euros! And everybody loves it. At the moment I’m wearing it with a simple basic beige t-shirt  or high neck pullover, both from ZARA.

IMG_0055

I’m planning to use it for summer nights but still I don’t know how I will do it. The necklace is from Follie-follie.

IMG_0064

 

And this’s it for the moment. I’m waiting for your comments, ideas, suggestions…. and I will continue working in the second part of this blog.

I hope you like it.

A la prochaine!
