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.

Suit & Tie … & Pen

DSC_6109

Mondays are typically annoying because it is good bye weekend and hello work. So today I will be blogging/working from the comforts of my room introducing my new collaboration with Pineda Covalin. For today I decided to go all out and pulled out the suit & tie to look sharp and classy on a Monday vibe. To accessorize my black suit I decided to wear a Petalillo Wall Tiles tie from Pineda Covalin, the designs embellish the architecture of Puebla (state in Mexico) in the many shades of blue were the patterns are woven to create an interwoven palm leaves. The ultimate accessory for this look was the pen in my pocket matching with the tie, becoming the focus point and the only pop of color the outfit needed making it a statement of efficiency and class wherever I went. The brand identity Pineda Covalin transmits in this modern age era without losing its Mexican roots can clearly be appreciated though out the entire collection.

Los lunes son normalmente molestos ya que implican darle un adiós al fin de semana y un saludo a una nueva semana laboral. Así que hoy voy a bloguear/trabajar desde la comodidad de mi hogar para presentarles mi colaboración con Pineda Covalin. Para hoy decidí salir y envolverme en un traje y corbata para lucir clásico y perfectamente formado en una onda de lunes laboral. Para complementar mi traje negro decidí usar la corbata Petatillo Azulejos de Pineda Covalin cuyo diseño embelesa la arquitectura de Puebla en México, con sus múltiples formas en azul que crean patrones entrelazados que visualizan hojas de palma tejidas. El último accesorio para esta look fue una pluma en mi bolsillo combinación ideal con la corbata, que se convirtió en el punto clave y fue el toque de color que necesitaba el outfit transmitiendo eficiencia y clase a donde quiera que vaya. La identidad de Pineda Covalin representa en esta era moderna las raíces mexicanas que claramente se aprecian en toda la colección.

Denim Fever

Once upon a time denim on denim was not such a good idea but today we are going all in. Finding a denim shirt with some details was the perfect contrast between two dark indigo hues pairing up my H&M denim shirt with my Joe Fresh jeans were the perfect match. To add a little color my dark camel brown belt from Ralph Lauren and my Astor Too Boot New York double monk strap shoes, mixing indigo with dark brown will always make a statement. To continue on the dark brown tones my Chloé aviators with leather details and my Louis Vuitton Damier canvas clutch were the perfect ensemble for a very fresh yet casual formal assembly.

Sunny Side Up

The sun is shining and it’s time to go out and play TGIF and the looks are more casual. Kicking it old school wearing a black top from Brian Lichtenberg #14 paring it up with black shorts from H&M and with my 3.1 Phillip Lim high rise black sneakers gives it a very summer all black casual look. To accessorize I added my Fucking Young studded baseball cap and to keep me from the sun black aviators were the perfect match to this all black summer look. Jut to pop out some color a yellow leather mabillion Louis Vuitton backpack gives it the perfect ensemble for a fresh hands free look were you can even have a second outfit just in case you run into some friends.
