I have received lately some emails asking me what to wear for X or Y event. Well what I am wearing today is what I would suggest any women (no matter the age, hair color or figure) to wear for a semi-formal/special event.

As you know i’m a big fan of the LBD (little black dress), and even if this one is not so little, more of a mid-length I am still a big fan in general of black dresses. Investing in black dresses is always smarter over any other color, because they are:

1.- less noticed

2.- more versatile

3.- elegant above most colors

4.- classic pieces that will last forever (with a few exceptions of course).

Now if you don’t have the biggest budget to splurge thats ok because there are affordable options out there, one of which is this actual dress i’m wearing. It’s probably one of the less expensive garments I own but it also probably is one with the highest potential. So please don’t ever think you need loads of money to dress good, you just need to shop smart, that is the only secret, really.

I won’t even start about how many ways you can wear it, but when I have a few outfits posted with this same dress I will make a review of how to wear a black dress so you can get some ideas.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses, Gap dress, Robert Clergerie heels and Chanel bag.

Today is hot, hot, hot baby! I am trying my best to embrace summer, and chill a little bit from my usual uniform, which at this time of the year consists on my Saltwater sandals (see previous post) navy/black shorts and a basic shirt with sleeves rolled up. For hot days sneakers are a wonderful option to sandals and today I chose my running sneakers to my usual Superga.

You might also noticed I cut my hair a bit, it was out of control lately and to be honest I like short bob’s the most so I wanted to go back to the same hair I had when I was in Paris earlier this year. Unfortunately this hair cut lasts absolutely nothing, my hair tends to grow so quickly that it makes it hard to stay with it for long.

I’m wearing: Marc Jacobs sunglasses, The Kooples top, Isabel Marant Etoile skirt, Nike Flex sneakers (get them HERE) and Anya Hindmarch bathurts bag (get it HERE).

Nothing like going back to wearing my beloved Saltwater sandals! Best sandals ever made. I think I have mentioned before how big a fan I am of them, I got this navy pair a couple of years back and after wearing them two summers non stop they are still going strong. Sometimes high quality does not come together with high price, it usually does, but not in this case, and as quality is my number one factor when buying anything really, I will be faithful to this brand forever and ever.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban sunglasses, Petit Bateau top, The Kooples jeans, Salt Water sandals, Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola sandals.
