How I wear: LBD Little Black Dress

I decided to start doing a few new things in my blog. One of them is the one garment, three ways (or four: one for each season). Also I came up with the idea of making a summary of my staples, how I wear them and where you can get similar items. Since the weather has been so hot lately, lets start with something you can wear all year long, but that I have been wearing a lot in hot days.

So for today: how I wear my LBD Little Black Dress in hot weather.

1.- I styled my white collar LBD by Sandro with black Chanel flats and my Chanel flap again. For a similar dress I found this one by Boutique by Jaeger that you can SHOP HERE.

2.- I styled my skater LBD by The Kooples with beige Chanel flats and my Chanel flap. For a similar dress this one by Free People is quite close and you can GET IT HERE.

3.- I styled my knee length LBD by Gap with Robert Clergerie heels and yet again my Chanel flap. I found an almost identical dress by Topshop that you can SHOP HERE and a classic pair of heels for a fraction of the price by Topshop too. GET THEM HERE.

For a black chain bag in the line of my Chanel check this bag by Whistles, it’s gorgeous at a much much lower price. SHOP IT HERE.


Spring 2014: Outfit 46

Trini Acne shirt The Kooples skirtTrini Chanel flap black outfitTrini black outfit chanel bag   Today i’m in an all black outfit again! But quite opposite to last week’s. Today is all about casualness and comfort and relaxed vibes. Yesterday I was watching the first episode of Downton Abbey, a series I have wanted to watch for ages, but caught in between The Killing, Girls, Looking and Breaking Bad, I had not time for a fifth one. Finally I finished three out of those four and decided to start a new one. I was not expecting to find such great quotes and one instantly got my attention: “No one wants to kiss a girl in black”. Right away I was reminded about Coco Chanel, specially because the series is happening in the same era, and all I could think of is how Chanel would have said exactly the opposite. Then I went even further and just thought about how many times we sober girls, and I bet some of you my lovely readers have heard this more than once, get the “boring” adjective in reference to our outfits. To me all black outfits, and in general soberness is underrated of course, always will be, but it also is everything but boring! The fun factor does not lie on colors, it lies on so much more elements such as fabrics, cuts, details. I do understand though that only people with a sharp eye can see it, and that is the minority all along. So therefore probably the “Kardashians” of the world (sorry I could not think of anything tackier at the moment) will probably always be more appealing to the masses than the “Cocos”.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses, Acne Studios t-shirt, The Kooples skirt, Adidas Gazelle sneakers via and Chanel bag. bloglovin

Spring 2014: Outfit 44

Already, we are having summer weather here in Madrid (even though it’s raining right now).  It has been so hot lately I was forced to slip in my summer clothes, today i’m wearing one of my favorite summer dresses. Stripes of course! Classic, and so easy to wear. I love the shape of this dress (which wasn’t originally this length, another of my alterations) this type of round neck sleeveless garments are so perfect, the fit almost everyone and make arms look nicer. The wideness of this dress makes it so comfortable and free to move in, and of course it allows your skin to breathe something we all thank for during hot months. In general I see so many advantages on this dress that of course I would suggest it, to anyone.

Unfortunately it is from last summer so it’s no longer available, but I have a few similar suggestions for you.

-THIS DRESS by Fred Perry is lovely, short sleeved but with a similar shape.

-THIS DRESS is virtually a copy of mine, instead of navy stripes it has black stripes. No offense, but of course I would never buy this dress, it completely goes against my main principle when shopping, less quantity and more quality. But if you don’t care about quality and want something disposable, go ahead.

-THIS DRESS by Marc by Marc Jacobs is gorgeous and has a beautiful shape, again similar to mine somewhat more rigid and structured, with lovely light blue stripes. You can find more cute blue prom dresses online.

Now to what i’m wearing. Click on the name of the brand to purchase the item.

Ray-Ban sunglasses, Wood Wood dress, Superga sneakers and Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola bag.

I wore it so much last summer and during Christmas holidays in South America and certainly will keep wearing it this summer. Same goes for my white Superga sneakers that might need to be replaced very soon.

Trini Topshop jeans Birkenstock arizona sandalsTrini striped JCrew shirtChanel classic flap Trini blogToday i’m wearing my Birkenstocks again, I seriously cant stop wearing them, i’m officially addicted! I never thought I would love them so so much, but I do. I love how they can “break” a somewhat feminine outfit and make it a little less obvious (I don’t know if I make any sense by saying this) it’s sort of the same effect running sneakers worn with skirts tend to have.

I have been wearing them with absolutely everything lately so you will definitely see them non stop in all my summer outfits.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses SHOP THEM HERE, J Crew striped shirt SHOP IT HERE, Topshop jeans, Birkenstock Arizona sandals GET THEM HERE and Chanel bag.
