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

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
I’ve been outspoken lately of my preferences on buying vintage and thrifted designer clothes rather than fast fashion. I used to be the biggest fast fashion shopper and to recommend some pieces on my channel, until I was touched by how harming it is for the environment. My old days as a fast fashion blogger. … Continue reading I sell my clothes on Poshmark!
As I even wrote a post of how excited I was for this collaboration I am now sharing that I decided to return my dress (decision my IG followers help me take after a poll where 50% said return this dress please) At least I can say my tips and tricks post worked! I was … Continue reading Spilling the tea: I returned my Valli x H&M dress
Deciem (the parent company for The Ordinary) is on SALE sitewide until November 30th! 23% off on all of their products, this never happens. What also never happend before is the closure of both site and stores on Black Friday to support the SHOP SLOWLY MOVEMENT. Can I love this company more? Because of it, … Continue reading My favorite products from The Ordinary
The snowfall has made it official, our outfits must change to adapt to the frigid weather Canada is known for...
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

You all know I have been low key involved on the sustainable movement of fashion so I haven't really been into fast retailers in a while. That being said, I found Ardene campaign for Halloween was really strong 😂 They had $30 dollars character onesies and they were all over the city. What a better … Continue reading Canada’s not so Wonderland?

Because we will be covering Fashion Weeks in Tropical Statement, I decided to sume up why is it so important for people in the fashion industry, including me. Despite it is a pretty famous term, many people, including fashion fanatics, don't know why is it a big deal. Fashion Week used to be extremely private … Continue reading What is Fashion Week anyway?
