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
You all know that my days on quarantine have consisted mainly of typing on my laptop, recording Tik Toks, and running to the post office to send a package for a customer (btw if you are a Tropical Statement customer, thank you so so much for supporting my small business). I live in Toronto and … Continue reading Hair Clips Hairstyles
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
...instead of buying clothing, I've rather focused on self-care products. I think being enclosed for the past 2 months is our perfect excuse for a little splurge and we better use it, ladies.
I haven't been happy with my beauty routine lately despite the pretty well-reviewed skincare products I own. Many times, getting new products is not the solution. We often try to purchase the best beauty products but we forget about the daily habits that are having a long-lasting effect on our hair and skin.
Going back to fashion week for SS20, there were A LOT of suits and dots. Bubble sleeves were...
I haven't been completely happy with my makeup and beauty routines lately. With all this free time we have on our hands, I've decided to explore and organize my makeup drawer and upgrade my whole makeup routine. It's time to get rid of products I am not completely happy with. I am a one-at-a-time product … Continue reading The Ultimate Makeup List by my BFF: Laura Cipponeri
Hi there! Happy quarantine 🙂 I wanted to share with you an honest review of the magnetic lashes.

I hope you enjoy it … Continue reading Trying magnetic lashes for the first time

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
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.
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

For this week’s post I am bringing you some tips to make your outfits look EXTRA cute and premeditated. It seems my life revolves around … Continue reading How to spice up your outfit
Let’s be honest, there are 2 kind of woman: the one that wears the same jewelry everyday and the one that changes, mix and matches her accessories every.single.day. This post is made for both because no matter what, we all have more jewelry that we actually need and wear. Don’t put all the blame on … Continue reading How to organize your jewelry
Andrea 2.0 has arrived! New year, new me. All that BS splashed on me. I spent the last 2 months contemplating a change of hairstyle and everyone around me discouraged me from doing it. “Don’t do it, you are crazy”, “you’ll regret it"... As I was going thru an emotional rollercoaster (not because of a … Continue reading My New Haircut – Sharing My Mood Board
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
A few days ago, I posted some stories on my IG drinking wine and hanging out with friends at an event. I’ve been a Poshmark seller since one month ago (check out this post for more info) and I’ve been loving it. And my love grew when I was invited to hang out with other … Continue reading All about the #Poshpartylive with Poshmark
