I went to spend the weekend at Viña del Mar, it’s one of the most important cities in Chile located 1,5/2 hours away from Santiago and the main advantage here of course is the sea! Living in a capital city without sea I am always thankful for every time I get to see and spend some days next to the ocean even if I have to travel abroad to do so. So of course I was delighted, since my trip to Croatia almost half a year ago, that I last experienced the joy of breathing fresh sea breeze!

The climate is very average most of the year, lots of rain in winter but not very cold and a mild temperature in summer (not like hot Santiago) and the best part (at least for me) is that it tends to be very cloudy year round, specially in summer which is something I love. This changes the whole outfit system when compared to Santiago at the same time of the year. I have hardly worn pants there while in Viña almost everyday at least for the evening it’s the best option!

Now I only brought two pair of trousers and the ones you see me wearing are not one of them, and they are not new either…so I bet you are wondering, so where the hell do they come from? Well actually they are an old, and by old I mean VERY OLD pair of mine from 2006 I got at Topshop and that my mom had saved with the old clothes. While we were preparing to donate some of our old stuff to charity I came across this one, and I instantly recognized it! Originally it had another cut (remember skinny jeans from that era?) we are talking almost ten years ago, they were longer, less skinny, low cut and would bunch up at the ankle, a lot! When I tried these I loved everything about them, even the quality is far better than what you find now in the same store, but the one issue was the ankle area for me. Not very nice…so instead of doing what I usually do and that is have them hemmed is to cut them, for a different look. Studying fashion design I used to have a phase where I cut all my clothes to alter them so trust me I have the habit in me, and I was able to do this in a way that the look was just what I looked for. Now I can wear them all over again but with a totally different style. So my point is? Always consider giving your garments, basic ones specially a new life. There are always options and it is not as complicated as you might think!

Fui a pasar el fin de semana a Viña del Mar, para los que no sabéis mucho de Chile es una de las ciudades mas importantes y esta ubicada muy cerca de Santiago a hora y media mas menos, y su mejor atributo por supuesto es el mar. Viviendo toda mi vida en capitales sin mar es personalmente una necesidad cada cierto tiempo poder ver el océano aunque tenga que salir del país para hacerlo! Naturalmente a la oportunidad de este pequeño viaje estaba encantada, desde mi viaje a Croacia hace unos seis meses que no respiraba el aire marino!

El clima es Viña es bastante promedio la mayor parte del año, mucha lluvia en invierno, aunque no frío excesivo y en verano es templado, no excesivamente caluroso como Santiago pero lo mejor de todo es que casi siempre esta nublado! Recuerda un poco a partes del norte de España y la verdad ese tipo de clima en verano es mi favorito! Así que el tipo de ropa cambia un poco de lo que se puede usar en la misma época de Santiago a Viña. Casi no he usado pantalones en Santiago, cuando en Viña es necesario hacerlo casi a diario!

Solo traje dos pares de pantalones a Chile y el que me veis usando hoy no es uno de ellos. Tampoco es nuevo. Entonces de donde ha salido? Pues bien, os contare la historia. Estos pantalones son bastante antiguos, y cuando digo bastante me refiero a 2006 casi diez años! Los compré en el Topshop en aquella época y por alguna razón permanecieron guardados hasta que hace unos días decidí ayudar a mi madre ha hacer unas bolsas de ropa que no usamos para caridad y entonces aparecieron! Me los pobre inmediatamente, y me encantaron! Originalmente no son como se ven ahora, recordáis los vaqueros pitillo de la época? Eran mucho menos pitillo que los de ahora, de talle muy bajo y largos, arrugados en la parte del tobillo. Como nunca he sido muy fan de esa característica opte por cortarlos. Otra opción hubiese sido a la que siempre recurro que es llevarlos donde una modista que me los arregle pero decidí que quería unos vaqueros un poco distintos y opte por cortarlos yo mismo. Cuando estaba en la universidad como buena estudiante de Diseño de Moda lo daba todo cortando mi ropa así que de tener práctica la tengo, y la verdad es que es que con solo un tijeretazo ya tenía vaqueros nuevos! Ahora bien, todo esto para que? Lo que intento decir con tanta parrafada es que aconsejo y esto va para todo el mundo, dar una segunda oportunidad a la ropa. Sobre todo a esas prendas básicas que por alguna razón no nos convencen del todo pero tienen potencial, con solo una pequeña modificación pueden quedar como nuevas!

There is no discussion that Milan is one of the most stylish cities in the wor ...

Winter 2014/2015: Outfit 1

As you can see i’m back in Madrid. I’m missing Santiago terribly, but i’m glad to be in winter clothes for a change. After a few months of the same season I kind of get tired of the same clothes and crave a change (except in fall or spring because of the unexpected factor). To start (I can’t believe this is my first winter outfit) I went with an all black outfit, and a very ...

It was one of the best investments in regards to clothing I ever made. If you don’t have one I ...
