Buenos Aires Fashion Week

This week Buenos Aires will be full of color and fashion  because start the Buenos Aires Fashion Week (BAF) where the best Argentinean designers present their autumn – Winter 2011 collection.

As every year, the event will take place at “La Rural” a huge convention center where catwalks and stands of designers and vendors show their products.

Among the participant designers we can find Hermanos Estebecorena, Ricky Sarkany, Martín Churba, Maria Pryor, Jessica Trosman, María Vazquez, Vicki Otero and the very popular brand Rapsodia.

Part of the attraction and glamour of assisting to the event, apart of course of the catwalks, is to see the celebrities around you, visit the stands of different products and … what can I say, it is fun to receive all the things that designers give you for free to promote their brands.  Yes … this sound quite greedy but it is fun! One day I even have free shoes! … Funny don’t you think?

Another interesting phenomenon, that in a way paints the environment of the event in a very “fashionable” way, is that people go to see fashion, but they also bring fashion to the event. It is very interesting to see how many of the people dress a little more extravagant that they usually do, creating a great and very cool environment.

Any way, don’t miss it; if you are here in Buenos Aires, you have time until Friday! And if you are not around, you can follow the event live here.

See you soon!


Valentine’s day!

Today is February 14th, the most romantic and perfect day to give the best to your significant other, to your love one … WHAT???? No please!!! It just can’t be me who is saying this! I could be the president of the “anti-valentine’s day” club if it exists!!!

I hope I don’t offend anyone who enjoy this day and celebrate in a very romantic way, but I believe this is a very corny day. Let me tell you why I feel this way.

I think I started to be “anti” Valentine’s Day when I lived in New York; the thing is that in the States this is a VERY important date and everybody celebrates with flowers, flowers and more flowers.  Around 2002 (yep, I was on September 11 but that’s another story …) I  was working there and since my job was outside NY city, in Rye, I had to commute every day taking a train at Grand Central, every day at 8:07 (always on time). So, on February 14th, I left my place as usual, and I arrived to a very “pinky” Grand Central, but still, it was nothing strange just the typical promotions in the stores.  The shock was when I came back around 7pm, because suddenly when the train stops I step out in the middle of flowers, chocolates and happy people waiting for their love ones!!  It was incredible the size and the amount of flowers that everybody was holding … so I try to move out between the flowers and I went home … alone …  because I was one of the few ones that nobody was waiting at the station!

So, you might think that I hate Valentine’s day because nobody was waiting for me that day :) ,  maybe you are right and that is part of the reason but  I still believe it’s “too sweet” for me. Currently I have a boyfriend and I am in love but I still don’t celebrate it!

As my grandma used to say: “You should celebrate love everyday not only on Valentine’s day!” The thing is, this date is to celebrate love and friendship and nobody remember about the friendship, only about love! sweet, pinky and sticky love!!!.

Any way, if you celebrate, enjoy this day!! … And if you are just like me, here I have something to keep your mind busy. Today I present to you a Spanish brand called Flamenco; the designs are all embroidered, very colorful and fun. As you can see every piece has a lot of work and it is quite original.

Now that I think about it, these brand could be a little romantic, don’t you think? … perfect for the date!!!

Have a great week!

See you soon!


As time goes by …

First of all I want to apologize with you because I disappeared for the last two weeks. The thing is that my life has been crazy and I got sick, nothing serious but it was not nice …  anyway … here I am again! … And suddenly I realized that January is gone … incredible no? Time goes by so fast!!! … So, in order to be ad hoc to that, today the topic will be watches.

I have to say that I love this accessory; I believe it can be use in a fun way and especially because you can match them with your clothes. I know that there are plenty of fancy and expensive watches and you might be one of those who love them, but in my case I have a crazy weakness for the extra-large and colorful ones. An extra large watch could also be very sexy for women and men.

One of my favorites brands is Swatch, the designs are very cool, and the price is usually affordable. Here are two of the latest models that are fun.

The firs one is “The Lady Collection”, as you can see it is quite original because the strap is double long and it goes twice on your wrist.

The second one is the “New Gent”, this is a bigger watch and it is also unisex. As you can see the colors are more bright since there is more contrast with the background and the hands.

Another of my favorites brands is Fossil, because they also have a lot of extra-large watches, as you can see, their models usually have leather strap and it could be more formal than Swatch but still fun.

Louvett Watches is a brand that I recently found and I love it, the design is also extra-large but the extensible is different because it is fabric, with colorful and different designs. You can buy these watches in internet.

As you see, there are plenty of options when we talk about watches. Of course there is a lot of people who prefer to use only one watch and don’t change it every day, it is up to you, but remember that getting dress is a process that you have to enjoy so, mix colors, try new things and have fun!!

See you soon!!
