Like a million bucks

It recently came to my attention that I was published (for the 2nd time) on the certified Rich Kids of Instagram account (Cue in the flood of haters please, thank you).

But as 90’s pop culture queen Paris Hilton once said “There is no such thing as bad publicity”. With all that said, I must confess, being on the receiving end of such hatred does sting, and being compared to jobless trust fund babies is nothing to be proud of especially during such troubling times.

Growing up in a small town in Mexico, didn’t allow for unlimited creative expression, and so I fled to find my story away from many narrow-minded individuals. I wanted to succeed in the world of fashion but everything I did and everything I have has been earned through hard work and with a goal in mind. My parents granted me amazing opportunities and support but it was me alone who sought a fashion career that put me on the front rows of Fashion Week.

Going through the RKOI page all I could see was the offspring’s of the 1% displaying their opulent wealth. I truly wish that you don’t see me as a spoiled brat whose main job is to post instagrams of himself drinking champagne in private planes. If people took the time to read they would see that not everything I wear is designer. Yes, I like luxury, sue me! But who doesn’t aspire for the finest things in life?

Luxury is part of fashion but it is not everything. Fashion doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands of dollars to look like a million bucks.

Don’t believe me?

EXAMPLE: My favorite look for Milan Fashion Week

Recientemente me llamó la atención que me publicaron (por segunda vez) en la cuenta certificada Rich Kids of Instagram (Nótese los comentarios negativos de los seguidores de esa cuenta).

Pero como la reina de la cultura pop de los años 90, Paris Hilton, dijo una vez: “No hay tal cosa como mala publicidad”. Con todo lo dicho, debo confesar, estar en el extremo receptor de tal odio hace que me ponga de malas, y ser comparado con los hijos de los millonarios más poderos del mundo no es nada de lo que hay que estar orgulloso especialmente si ni trabajan y menos durante estos tiempos tan preocupantes.

Crecer en una pequeña ciudad en México, no me permitía una expresión creativa ilimitada, y por eso huí para encontrar mi historia lejos de muchas personas de mente cerrada. Quería tener éxito en el mundo de la moda, pero todo lo que hice y todo lo que tengo se ha ganado a través del trabajo duro y con una meta en mente. Mis padres me concedieron oportunidades asombrosas y el apoyo pero fui yo quien buscó una carrera en moda que me permitiera el acceso a ese mundo.

Pasando por la página de RKOI todo lo que pude ver fue la descendencia del 1% mostrando su riqueza opulenta. Realmente deseo que no me vean como un mocoso mimado cuyo principal trabajo es publicar en Instagram a sí mismo bebiendo champán en aviones privados. Si la gente se tomara el tiempo para leer, verían que no todo lo que llevo es de diseñador. Sí, me gusta el lujo, ¡demándenme! Pero, ¿quién no aspira a las mejores cosas de la vida?

El lujo es parte de la moda pero no lo es todo. La moda no significa que tienes que gastar miles de dólares para que parezca que vales un millón.

¿No me crees?

Rainbow Friday

From time to time people have been waiting to shop on the so called “Black Friday” to be honest I’ve never actually purchased anything on this day but here are 10 things you didn’t know about today.

  1. It attracts more people than Disneyland: Talk about the happiest place on earth looks like shopping helps your mood after all.
  1. More people die while shopping than in shark attacks: And here you thought you’d die for nothing, proof that we have some hardcore shoppers.
  1. It’s not just on Friday anymore: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, what’s next Consumerism Tuesday?
  1. You don’t have to set foot in a store at all: That’s right hopefully there is a black card you can use.
  1. Amazon wants to dominate the holidays: Leave it to the online world to persuade us with deals a whole week before Black Friday.
  1. Not all stores like Black Friday: Nor people I don’t like working on that day either (LOL)
  1. Some deals aren’t really deals: Sometimes all we need is the word “SALE” to engage with the consumer.
  1. Pajamas are a big seller: Hey why not invest in your sleepwear besides you may never know you could meet the person of your dreams (in your dreams LOL)
  1. Black Friday has gone global: See the whole world wants to shop!!
  1. It’s not actually the biggest shopping day after all: Christmas 1 Black Friday 0

 

So whether you decide to be brave and storm the stores on this crazy holiday “Black Friday” has revolutionized the psychology of consumers and its here to stay. Hope you find everything you were looking for.

Hunter Season

After yesterday’s snowy afternoon the streets of Manhattan woke up to a beautiful white day. The sun is up but the snow is all over the place so for today’s outfit I planned to use my black Hunter rain boots to help avoid or in my case jump on puddles of snow. The weather is nice so my reaped jeans from TopMan do the trick, on top I layered with my H&M denim shirt that matched perfectly with the jeans. Layering once more with a cream Lacoste V-neck sweater that blended perfectly with the amazing chocolate brown cape from Zara. To accessorize and complete the look for a fun snowy day my dark brown Ralph Lauren leather gloves went perfect with the ensemble. My brown leather aviators from Chloé gave the perfect touch to the whole look, besides with all that white snow working as reflectors I needed something to cover my eyes. On my arm candy I am wearing the amazing Breda watch with a brown strap but a gold and blue face matching perfectly with my gold Love de Cartier bracelet. Last but not least you guys know I am a sucker for hats so my camel brown fedora from Zadig & Voltaire was the perfect option for this denim/cream/brown look to take on the snowy streets of New York. 





















    

Welcome to New York

Hello kids Veneto is back in town and has a lot to make up for. This past month I’ve been totally MIA because of my holiday break. I had the chance to visit my family and hit pause on the workload but know that I am back I can assure you that this 2015 will be the year of Veneto.

Today I am keeping my butt warm (excuse my French) with a black wool coat from Sandro. Wearing all black to attract at least some rays of sun to help me in this terrible weather. My black ripped jeans from Saint Laurent weren’t exactly the best idea because the cold wind but if I would’ve worn black warmers underneath I think the look can be pulled off give it a try. To accessorize (keep warm) I used my Opening Ceremony black beanie and my black Alexander Wang x HM sunnies. Keeping everything in black and white tones I am wearing my white high-rise kicks from Sandro and my Chloé mini side bag to carry just the essentials. It is brutally cold outside New Yorkers but there is no need in looking terrible besides looking cold. Stay warm!

Winter Whites

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This was summertime, after all, a time for picnics, barbecues and a general carefree way of life. Some called it a Don’t once or even twice but for this winter wearing white will be a must. After spotting the off-whites trend quite a bit all over the runway it seemed pretty obvious that this was going to be the upcoming look. Since it’s for winter we definitely need a coat and to keep the winter wonderland tones a camel coat is the perfect element to go with the all-white outfit. For my look I decided to wear my Just Cavalli white denim with a gray two tone French Connection thermal under a simple white Tee from DKNY and doing the all-white look by adding my high rise kicks from Sandro. To complete the look a camel robe like coat from The Reformation and in the accessory department having my hair pulled back in a man bun added a posh aesthetic mixing elegance with a bohemian touch. The brown leather aviators from Chloé where a perfect match to white and brown (camel) color story as for my Louis Vuitton duffle bag had the exact colors needed to complete the look. The brown and camel LV iconic pattern went perfectly with the vibe and color scheme of the whole outfit. So if you are of the people who wonder why is it bad to wear white after Labor Day. The truth is that few people know the exact logic behind this antiquated fashion “law.” There seems to be no explanation, but what can be agreed upon is that it’s a rule that can now be put to bed.

Hubo un tiempo en que la gente se quedó con la idea de que vestir de blanco era lo único “permitido” entre Memorial Day y Labor Day. Esto era verano después de todo, época de picnics, barbacoas y en general un ambiente relajado. Algunos dicen No, pero para este invierno digan lo que digan vestir de blanco es un must. Después de ver los trends en las pasarelas, era obvio que la tendencia que se veía venir era esta. Como es invierno, definitivamente vamos a necesitar un abrigo, y para mantener los tonos invernales que mejor que un abrigo color camello, perfecto para combinar con un look completamente blanco. Para mi look decidí usar mis jeans Just Cavalli blancos con un termal de French Connection en tono gris abajo de una simple playera DKNY y mis tenis de Sandro. Para completar el look usé una túnica camello de The Reformation y como accesorio me recogí el pelo con un pequeño chongo que añadió una mezcla de elegancia con un toque bohemio. Los aviadores de cuero café de Chloé fueron la pareja perfecta del blanco y el café (mejor conocido como camello) colores exactos que mi bolsa de Louis Vuitton tiene, necesarios para completar el look. El patrón icónico café y camello LV iba perfecto con la vibra y combinación de colores del outfit. Así que si eres de las personas que se preguntan por qué es malo vestir de blanco después de Labor Day, la verdad es que pocas personas conocen la lógica exacta detrás de esta anticuada moda. No parece haber ninguna explicación, pero la conclusión es que es una regla que ahora puedes dejar atrás.
