Linen Dreams

There is no stronger relationship than the one Summer and linens have. But I wasn’t a fan. Wrinkles, I consider, are a big no-no when dressing up and, they are just unavoidable with linen. This Summer, from what I’ve heard the hottest Toronto’s had, I decided to give them a chance for their well-known lightness … Continue reading Linen Dreams

Why did I start buying thrifted clothing?

Coming from Panama, I knew nothing about thrifting. We don't even have this kind of stores there. The only knowledge I had at the time was due to movies showing up girls trying on "costume-like" outfits and making fun of the clothing. I moved to Toronto and started attending college for my Post-grad in Fashion … Continue reading Why did I start buying thrifted clothing?

The hottest trends from The Oscars 2020 Red Carpet

I am not a fan of making a best dressed / worst dressed list. I believe it is a subjective opinion and in my personal opinion it's not nice to spread hate based on a bad styling decision but as I’ve explained before on this post, a red carpet event of a magnitude as The … Continue reading The hottest trends from The Oscars 2020 Red Carpet

The importance of film awards season on the fashion industry

Despite a gown is not an everyday piece, major celebrity events like The Oscars influence on trends for Spring/Summer every year. Designers get to show their latest collection to a broad audience (even those not interested in fashion) and it becomes a major opportunity to show their designs on celebrities (OG influencers). A way to give life to designs that basically have just been seen on a runway.

Reviewing the Pepsi Half Time Show from a fashion perspective

When I heard Shakira and JLo were going to split the Super Bowl’s half time show I found it odd. They are both latino queens but they have such different styles in every aspect, from their image to their music that I could not imagine how they were going to pull it off without the … Continue reading Reviewing the Pepsi Half Time Show from a fashion perspective

Balmain X Puma

Another day, another collaboration. It seems high fashion designers are trying harder than ever to reach the masses. I am not complaining, I know well that I am part of the masses and that by having an “expensive taste” I have to carefully choose the pieces I am investing my money in as my clothes … Continue reading Balmain X Puma

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI X H&M

The dream of any broke millennial fashionista, a H&M collab with her favourite haute couture designer, has came true for me. But not so fast, I still don’t own any piece and the chances of getting one as soon as the collection is launched are very narrow. Maybe you've been on a midnight online royal … Continue reading GIAMBATTISTA VALLI X H&M
