Something New: Adidas Duramo slides

Trini blog | Adidas duramo slides

You know I can’t resist stripes…wherever they are! Well I came across this magnificent classic pool slides that remind me of my darling father that wore them back when I was a kid, an I had to have them! They are so cool, they can really brighten up any outfit and give it a nice fun touch!  They are the almost twin sister of the Adilette, and though they are almost exactly the same I liked this ones better, they are of a softer material.At the end when worn you can’t tell the difference, and the whole point of this slides is to own a classic item than brings us back all our childhood memories, or at least that is what they mean to me.


Ya sabeis que no puedo resistirme a las prendas a rayas, sean lo que sean, así que cuando me tope con estas chanclas de piscina inmediatamente me recordaron a mi padre ! Cuando era pequeña el las llevaba, me trajo tantos recuerdos geniales que tenía que tenerlas, y aquí están! Son super divertidas, pueden iluminar cualquier conjunto y darle un toque fresco. Son las casi hermanas gemelas de las famosas Adilette, y aunque son casi iguales me decanté por estas ya que el material es un poco mas suave. Al final da absolutamente igual cual de las dos tenga, puestas no se puede notar la diferencia, y realmente la gracia de estas sandalias es el que son una prenda clásica que me transporta a mi infancia.

Something New: from MaxMara…can you guess?

Maxmara new something Trini blog

I was not expecting to find something for me in Dubrovnik, to be honest fashion wise, it has not much to offer, except for two stores (I will get into this in a few posts), one being MaxMara, and even though in general it’s a brand with great clothes I have never been specially drawn to it.

Since there were not much stores to look at, I went in, and to my surprise found a few things that I loved, some were from fall winter collection and other on sale from spring summer. At the end I purchased this one thing I really loved and had been searching for…and I will leave you to guess, what do you think I got?


La verdad no estaba esperando encontrar nada de ropa para mi en Dubrovnik, no tiene mucho en ese aspecto a excepción de dos tiendas (escribiré sobre ellas en un futuro). Una de ellas es MaxMara que aunque en general es una firma estupenda con ropa excepcional no es de mis favoritas.

Como no había muchas tiendas para mirar, entre y sorprendentemente encontré unas cuantas cosas que me encantaron. Algunas eran de la colección de otoño y otras de verano. Al final acabe comprando solo una cosa que realmente llamó mi atención y que estaba buscando desde hace bastante. Os dejaré adivinar, que es?


A Classic Pair of Sandals

One of the classics above classics: K Jacques Saint Tropez “Picon” sandals. These have been on my wishlist since forever and finally got the chance to try them on last fall. I am always a little confused on my sizing when it comes to full size brands (being a half size) so this one was a must try before purchase case, but luckily it was easy to find the right number and I must say I am as happy as can be with these girls! Fully recommend. Next summer I might invest on another model like the Barigoule or the Flavia. Also a big fan of the Laura and Ganges models.


Uno de los clásicos de entre los clásicos: las sandalias “Picon” de K Jacques Saint Tropez. Han estado en mi wishlist desde siempre, y por fin tuve la oportunidad de probármelas el otoño pasado. Siempre me confunde un poco el tallaje de las marcas que solo llevan números enteros (es lo que tiene ser un medio número), así que estas sandalias eran de esas que necesitaban ser probadas antes de comprarlas. Por suerte ya enterada de cual es mi numero ha sido una grata sorpresa lo cómodas y versátiles que son. Las recomiendo al cien por cien. Puede que el próximo verano invierta en otro de los modelos clásicos de la firma como son Barigoule o Flavia.

Something New: Saint Laurent 3 Clous Bracelet

Saint Laurent leather silver bracelet  Trini blog

Some people think I don’t accessorize. Actually I do, well i’ve wanted to for the longest time. The thing is I have been investing in other areas of my wardrobe not really giving accessories the relevance I should.

Also I hadn’t found items I really wanted to invest on, until recently. Honestly I had my eyes set on Hermes, they make the most gorgeous bracelets but on a unexpected trip to Saint Laurent I kind of fell in love with their jewelry line too. Last month while in Stockholm shopping the Midsummer sales with my friend I ran into this item at 50% off, something that shouldn’t been happening since this is really a permanent collection bracelet. Now those things happen with retailers, and it’s better for us customers to encounter bargains not supposed to happen, so I kind of had to have it right away.

What I love most about this bracelet is it has a sort of resemblance to the Hermes “Medor” watch (smallest size) and that is my dream accessory (no longer in production). I like the subtle little touch of “tough” in an outfit, specially when given by an accessory, so soft you can barely notice, to me that reaches true perfection.
