I am bringing you what are the trends for Fall / Winter 2021 so you can make the most out of those new garments. What works for me is to pay special attention to colors, silhouettes and bend towards pieces that can be layered in colder months.
It was about time! After 3 years living in Toronto, I have acquired some Summer dresses to add to my wardrobe. As I've been focused on putting together my Fall Winter outfits all of these years as I had plenty of Summer friendly clothing coming from Panama, I've been using the same hot weather outfits … Continue reading Summer 2021 Outfits, 5 playful looks from SHEIN

Fashion has and will always move around social events and there was no exception with the 2020 pandemic. Loungewear was popular among the Gen Zs before the lockdowns started but many of us millennials (who had been in the professional landscape enough time to have a work-to-party kind of wardrobe) were not aware of how amazing can be Netflix and chilling ...
Even though I love black tights, I find myself having to decide each morning if I am willing to take the risk. From my experience, ripping my tights in the middle of the day is highly probable and this usually grants an “improvised” visit to the dollar store. Lucky for you, I am here to spend the money before you do, and tell you all about it. Here my review...
Shapewear has been a well-known territory for me since I was 15 years old, right when I started attending quinceaños which meant that using gowns was a weekly requirement. I've mentioned my early use of solution wear before and often get surprised reactions. There's definitely a taboo behind it. I believe some women think that … Continue reading Skims Shapewear Review – Before and After
A recap of my fall 2020 outfits.
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
I remember those days when I used to live with my mom and my sneakers magically got cleaned up, looking flawless with the minimum effort. Well, for some of us those days are gone. Learning to clean sneakers is a huge skill to get nowadays, and it is really not a science! I put together … Continue reading TikTokrial on How to Clean White Sneakers
There's something about the French girl style, isn't it? French girls (and French designers) have been a major inspiration in Fashion for decades. I mean, these girls live in the fashion capital of the world. Just to think about the architecture they get to experience every day on their way to work, to do groceries, … Continue reading French Girl Style
Today's post is about the trend no one thought was coming (back again): TIE DYE. Luckily for fashion-oriented individuals, quarantine hit at the same time that most Americans perform the so much called Spring Closet Cleaning. It's pretty evident by social media that quarantine has pushed the creative boundaries of most people and what an … Continue reading All About Tie Dye

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?

For the last Fashion Week season (on Fall 2019 where SS20 collections were presented) I worked on a special project with some friends. I had just graduated from my post grad program in Fashion Management and I had a final project where a jeans collection needed to be created from scratched.
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
