BABY IT´S COLD OUTSIDE

The song “Baby it´s cold outside” represents well what is happenning now in Madrid. It is chilly and it has snowed.  I loved the song since the very first time I heard it so this is a good title for a post on being prepared for the cold weather. Last year I wrote a post…

BLUSH VELVET

Another practical and useful way of presenting the velvet trend is to have a girly dress.  This time it is a cold – shoulder sleeved velvet dress in baby pink. I love this dress because it is flirty, it has a nice ribbon in the neckline as well as its color is so sweet.  I…

SEPTEMBER,FALL HAS JUST COME BACK: A MONTH´S RECAP

Another moth is over and we have our summary in the blog. September meant another school year in a new place, lots of adjustments and at least I shared my capsule wardrobe. So most of the posts have been related to it. I was really amazed by all your comments and my idea  is to…

CAPSULE WARDROBE: SHOES AND HANDBAGS

To finish the series connected to my capsule wardrobe, here you have shoes and handbags. For shoes I had a pair of dusty pink flats, a pair of lace up ballerinas, glitter ballerinas and fuchsia low heeled shoes. As I specified in my previous post I   need to include more shoes as I need…

SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE: JACKETS OR COATS?

For my summer capsule wardrobe I chose three light coats and one kimono. All of them have been presented so far. The reason why I prefer light coats is because they are really flattering and give a very polished touch to outfits. If you look for minimal or not too bussy prints you can wear…

PINK AND ROSE DRESSES, THE CORE OF MY SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE

Today I include my dusty rose and pink dresses I have been using for the last two months. All of them have been the core of my capsule wardrobe and I have enjoyed the experience of downsizing my wardrobe as I feel more confident with what I wear as well as can create different outfits…

WALK INTO FALL

For sure this is the first official fall outfit. But it still is hot in Madrid so the consequence is that I incorporate autunmal colors in light fabrics. This floral print midi dress with round neckline and gathered detail from Zara is awerome. It features long sleeves with elastic cuffs, elastic waistline, buttoned opening in…

FLORAL PINK SATIN COORDINATES

Matching sets or coordinates  are meant to be used in different ways as they are synonims of versatility. At the beginning they were meant to be worn together but you can create with them multiple outfits. That is why I included the pink dress and its matching kimono in my capsule wardrobe. The set is…

HOT CHIC PINK

Today one of the chicest pieces in my wardrobe, a hot pink light coat. Weather in Madrid in September is unpredictable so you need some light outerwear as well as sleeveless dresses and tops.  I included this coat in my capsule wardrobe considering maybe I could not wear  in this Indian summer we are having…

COAT DRESS OR SIMPLY A TRENCH?

Second pink outfit  is a trench according to Modcloth, the  American retailer where I purchased it. However, in my opinion it is too light to be a trench. I purchased it at the end of the sales so the price was worth to be paid but its full price was really expensive because of the…
