New in: J.Crew leopard slides!

I bet you never thought you would see me wearing leopard print! Well, now you will! I have always had this love/hate relationship with animal print in general more especially with leopard. I like it only on a few garments, it is a classic print that has been used in clothing since forever, and it’s never in or out, just like everything I like, it is a permanent thing, think stripes or small polka. It is funny though how brands or magazines always try to sell classic prints like they are a trend, I just laugh so hard, either the person who is selling them has no real knowledge of fashion or either they are trying to sell it to people who are fashion clueless. Not good in any case.

I like only leopard prints with small spots. Usually I always end up going for the black or the navy before the leopard, but this time I had a totally different experience: I first saw these sandals on J.Crew’s magazine, and even though the outfit on the model was a little too much for my taste I just loved the way her footwear made a subtle statement. I though of possible combinations that would make a beautiful austere outfit, all black with these leopard slides, or black and grey…something in my line and it all seemed to work, so I decided to get out of my comfort zone a little bit and take the plunge!

How do you feel about leopard print?


Mi mas reciente adquisición sandalias en leopardo de J.Crew!

Seguro que no os esperabais esto de mi! Pero sí esta vez me he salido un poco de mi zona de comfort y me he aventurado a probar algo distinto. La verdad siempre he tenido esta relación de amor odio con el animal print, en concreto el leopardo. Me gusta, siempre me ha gustado porque es un estampado clásico que se lleva usando desde siempre, nunca es tendencia o deja de serlo, por mucho que lo vendan como tal. Pero la verdad es que la gente con mal gusto lleva abusando de este estampado, de la peor forma demasiado tiempo y eso es lo que me hace repelerlo un poco.

También debo reconocer que no me gusta cualquier leopard print, creo que tengo un ojo demasiado meticuloso y si no lleva los tonos de amarillo y marrón adecuado o si el tamaño de los círculos no es lo suficientemente pequeño me parece grotesco. Así que cual fue mi sorpresa cuando viendo el catálogo de J.Crew me encuentro con que me gustan estas sandalias! El conjunto de la modelo era bastante disperso, pero por alguna razón las sandalias se aislaban del conjunto y destacaban por si solas de una forma bastante intrigante. Así que fui a la tienda me las probé y jugué con opciones de combinaciones que podrían valerle como todo negro, o gris y blanco y la verdad me sorprendí con la versatilidad y lo bien que sientan!

Cual es vuestra opinión al respecto, os gusta el leopard print?

Something New: Celine Tailor Sunglasses

So I had been needing a new pair of sunglasses for a while, I was bored with my three classic options (plus a very special pair in gingham I hardly use). I wanted a still classic design, but in tortoiseshell frames. I did have a few options on my wishlist, but this one made it to number one. The reasons? Quality, classic design, and most of all the actual design of the tortoiseshell print. I know ...

This sneakers need no introduction, they are a classic among classics. I used to own this same model on the early 2000’s. But of course I was not the only one, everyone at school owned a pair, girls and boys. I remember some of my classmates had them with the stripes in so many different colors, I on the other hand had one of the classics, the all black with white stripes, just the opposite ...

Something New: Celine vertical cabas bag

Today on Instagram you might have noticed how I posted this first picture asking you to guess what I just bought at Céline. (Well I know the title of this post gives it away now, but still I am felling like doing a reveal. Here we go: The shopping bag… Now you can already see that it’s a bag due to the dustbag and no box on sight, but which bag can it be? Hmmm… I realize that the ...

Something New: Chanel Tweed Flats

Something I had wanting to own for quite some times had always been a pair of Chanel tweed flats. I have a number of pairs in leather but not one in tweed. Unfortunately for me, there was never a pair left in my size whenever I went to the store and if there was it was not of my liking. As i’ve said before I am not a big fan of the selection of seasonal items my local store carries, in fact ...

I don’t really know if this shoes should be called wedges or chunky heels, but either way they are a fabulous pair footwear that is really comfortable. I first fell in love with them at the Acne Studios store in DTLA last March and I instantly added them to my wishlist. I only have one other pair of wedges that I got years ago by Isabel Marant and I wear them so much in summer, specially to ...

I’ve been lusting over a few bags for a long time, one of them is this amazing beauty, the Lulu bag from Saint Laurent. I love the simple, clean design, with gold hardware and its slim rectangular shape. I don’t have a bag in this format, so this is what has been missing in my bag collection…well…and bags other than black and navy, but I guess I’ll solve that in the f ...

Something New: Saint Laurent Paris 80 Western Ankle Boots

As you know I hardly wear heels, but when I do I wear classic, timeless, investment pieces that are meant forever. This one of them. I longed for the perfect high heel ankle boots since forever but it was hard to locate the perfect pair. They have to be the right height, they have to be suede, the heel must be thin, they have, must be black. Then there are the details where on the ankle do they st ...
