One of the great things about living in New York City its that you get to see experience fashion everyday, on the streets, on the runways, on the fashion district and window shopping ... and if u get lucky you can even meet the faces behind that daily fashion ...
Today was one of those days, I got to meet the legendary Betsey Johnson at an event at Macy's, hosted by the lovely Micah Jesse.

Micah and me

It was the launch of the new summer collection which was colorful, vivid and girly, very Betsy. There was a lot of american flag themed items: tote bags, beach bags, wallets,etc. and a lot of red and blue lacey and puffy dresses as always.

Very patriotic model

I loved every item on it, specially the lace and pearls dress on this picture (which the girl right behind me won in the raffle!)

The event was very well performed and very well organized, you had to make a line and wait for your turn, once you got there they gave you a pink tote bag with the sparkly name of BJ on it and a compact mirror ...

Yes, the mirror says "You look too cute!"

Fooling around while waiting

Then, you got to this area , with balloons and a pink sofa where Betsy was, I got to speak with her and she was very cheerful, when I told her I was from Argentina she was surprised, and sent greetings to all her fans there, there was no cameras allowed at that point, but they took your picture with her and then they print it out for you as a souvenir in the blink of an eye!

Betsey and me :)

All in all, I had a great time, met great people and once again got carried away by the magic of NYC ...

Hope you enjoyed the post, Sorry I could give you guys anymore pics but they were pretty pushy in that matter ...

Do you own a BJ? Do you like the new collection?

Heart-Shaped glasses

This love story started back when I was 15 years old and discovered Stanley Kubrick's "Lolita", I've read the book before but the movie ... it was marvelous. Sue Lyon was so perfect, almost like a porcelain doll, and she had this cute heart shaped glasses ... funky, girly and retro, I had to have those.

Unfortunally, in Argentina, I wasn't able to find them, years after that, I got into Ebay and ordered a pair ... When I got them on the mail I wasn't very sure of wearing them on the street, but a few months later they became a total fashion hit (even Urban Outfitters launched them!)

When I bought them a few years ago I opted for the black ones, but I'm definitely getting a pair of the red ones for next summer.

Even my beloved George embraced the heart-shaped shades back in the Free Love era ...

I think we should all embrace our inner Lolita and pull this cuties out , even if we don't have Lyon's perfectly symmetric face, we are young only once.

Get Inspired!!

The Military Jacket

I remember when I was a kid my mom had this green military jacket with matching pants which she called "cazadora" and she was always wearing it, she had this kind of infatuation with this jacket that made me curious.

I had never had one of this in my life, to be honest I actually wanted one when I was a punk teenager like ten years ago, but eventually I grew up and forgot all about it ...

I started watching the trend on streetstyle blogs and even though I loved it immediately I just couldnt wrap my finger around it ...
Then I saw this beauty hanging on a rack at Forever 21 and suddenly the pieces fit together and I could see it matching with everything!

It has a variety of studs on it, and the length is just perfect to cover a little booty but still not look like a hunter.
The military jacket its a good option to make a edgy piece a little more laid back ... I got this leopard printed dress at H&M for $10 and I matched it with a pair of Wanted studded booties that I got at Burlington's for $14. 

But it was still too dressy for a morning walk on the MET so I put on my military jacket ... when I see the pics I do realize it makes me look a little chubby and maybe I should have paired the dress with a short leather jacket but still I like the safari look it brings up when pulled together. 

I have also found a Hans Christian Andersen statue in the Water Reservoir in Central Park and had a little fun picking his nose hehe

How do you ladies pull out the Military trend?

Here you have a little theme music to get inspired ...

Pamela Hat + Faux Fur Coat Combo

I know ... it's been a long time , Im SO sorry for leaving you guys like that! My life has quite changed this past year and half ... I moved to New York and as you could have imagined , as a fashionista, I totally fell in love with this city. During the winter, the past February  I got the chance to assist to the New York Mercedes Benz Fashion Week ... and it was one of the best experiences I ve had in my life, went to a few shows, got free beauty supplies and did a little celebrity sightseen (almost killed Jason Wu while walking towards the bathroom and tripped with him!) After that fantastic experience I went to Central Park with my beloved fashion photographer friend Gerry Hanan and took a few pics ... This are the results

Now Let me tell you a little bit about my outfit ... I have always wanted a Pamela hat, for years, but couldnt find any in Argentina. The first week I was in NYC I discovered the H&M on fifth avenue and 45nd, a few block away from Grand Central, and they were doing this huge sale and there it was ... $7 price tag ... love at first sight. I didnt even tried it! (Because I had this huge top knot on my head) and it happened to fit perfectly!

The coat its another story ... I have been obssesed with Faux fur leopard coats since I discovered Edie Sedgwick when I was 16 , and then I saw "Factory Girl" and I just knew I NEEDED one of those. Fnally a winter sale in Forever 21 brought this beauty to my closet for just $29.

Well ... Im sorry girls for this year and half gap ... the good news is my personality and dressing have evolved in space speeds lol , so you will definitly see me around here a lot ... Can't wait to hear from you!

My so beloved wildcard

Ladies! How did you weekend went? Hope you are all OK and full with new outfit pics to show!
Today I decided to create a new section of this blog: The Wildcards, I guess that all my readers as fashionistas are familiar with the concept of a wildcard. There are classic wildcards (LBD, Blazer, Nude Pumps, Pearly white shirts, etc) and personal wildcards, those that you cannot imagine living without , and these are the  type of wildcards I will be showing in this section.

My first wildcard is the BLACK LEATHER JACKET. Let's be honest ladies ... I dare you to find something that doesn't fit with a black leather jacket. Floral dresses, leather leggings, jeans, shorts, skirts, anything goes!

Designers love them, celebrities love them, no matter where or when the biker or rocker look always fits! I have even wore this jacket with night gowns!

As for me, Im an ecologist, so I do not use fur or leather. So my beloved jacket is made of ecological leather. I live in a city with beaches, but most of the time is cold and windy, so this jacket becomes my best friend during winter, night or day , I would totally freeze without it.

As I was wearing abold black shirt I decided to wear my silver necklace, this is just a simple daily look, nothing too fancy ... a red nail polish always works to light up a widow-ish look lol , and please notice that I was wearing curls!! Yeah, I often wear my natural curls even tough they are quite hard to control ....


So, what happens when the sun goes down and you live in a freezin city like mine? (Yeah ... I dont call it a wildcard for nothin people!) In this particular night, I wore one of my favorite items for nightime: Liquid Leather Leggings, yeah .... edgy! but if you wear them carefully u can be safe from the whole slutty thing that sorrounds this fashion trend (specially in south america) Im telling you, this leggings deserve a whole post!!

This beautiful blouse ( yeah, you can't notice the shape of it with the jacket on, but Im gonna show it to you guys in some other post) was designed by me and made with the help of my lovely grandma Lili <3. The gold tiara Im wearing .... well that was quite a find! I went to a little shop that sells accesories , and there it was, really cheap, no one liked it! but I instantly loved it! Once i wore it, everyone kept tellin me how good it looked! It has little leaves kind of helenistic ....

Well my beloved readers I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to hear from you soon! I received e mails, facebook inbox and fashiolista messeges talking about the blog and I absolutely loved it! =)
Have a nice tuesday!



Ps: You thought I forgot about the video? Here you have a little music inspiration to rock this trend!

Music is my Aeroplane

Most of the teenagers goes thru that fase where you wear all black and nothing but band tees. Well ... if u were one of those, you better start looking for those old shirts in ur closet because it has become the latest trend in the streetwear fashion. Models, actresses and singers have been spotted all around the world wearin shirts of band iconic bands like Joy Division, Rolling Stones, The Police, Guns n Roses, etc ...

The perfect combination for the band tee is the leather jacket, no doubt about it, but if you are more naif and u don't want to go to the edge of punk rocker, jean jackets or plaid shirts can become a good choice. As for myself, I was one of those teenagers, i used to wear studs, black, green and pink hair and tons of black eyeliner, so I happen to have a lot of band shirts...

I have also experimented with the band tee + black/ flower skirt (could be high waisted) and it turned out to look great with the right accesories.
This shirts have not only become a perfect card for daytime but also por partying! combined with the perfected outfit it can become a total hit. You don't believe me? Check this out ....

I created this look, for a relaxed night out with friends, drinks and stuff, nothing too fancy. I choose a white t shirt (mostly to avoid the total black look that would make me look a bit too punk rock) the band is the Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of my favorites of all times, and this is how the night look turned out ...

As for daytime, I combined the same tee with the same clutch, plus a leopard printed scarf used as a headband and some jeans I ripped (DIY soon!) and a jean jacket ...

Hope you enjoyed this post! I 'd love to see your band tees looks and hear your experiences with them, feel free to share =)



ps: Here's a little something for you to get inspired for new band tee looks! ;)

Born in the USA

Like Bruce Springsteen used to sing, it seems like everybody was Born in the USA nowadays! The USA flag print is here to stay, at least for this season. This print can be found in purses, shirts, shorts, shoes, boots, skirts and whatever u can imagine, lately we have seen the gorgeous Kate Bosworth rockin this trend in the Glastonbury, while those who were teens in the 80's can remember Springsteen or Lauper produly wearing their USA flag ....

But lately, the British Flag has also make a revival, and those readers who are my age will actually remember Ginger Spice wearing those tight dresses with the british flag printed on them. Well ... I would wear that kind of dress, but I do have a bit of Britain in my wardrobe , designer labels like Alexander McQueen, have adopted this trend for almost every accesory they are able to produce! Here are some of my favorites ....

The little satchel with the skull is from Alexander Mc Queen's collection, I absolutely fell for it! even though Im not a skull person. 

As regards my own wardrobe, I wasnt able to find any of this trends back when they jsut pumped into the fashion system this year, it took me weeks to actually find a t shirt with a flag! Hopefully I got two of them, one with the USA flag and one with the British flag, Im wearing them with the liquid leather leggins in both of the pictures because it was winter time and it was quite cold , but I do combine them with jeans, shorts or high waited skirts.
