Mi estilo en la moda, aunque ahora es tan camaleónico como mi gusto en perfumes o en la música, está muy influenciado por la tendencia clásica que tengo desde muy joven, con lo cual aunque a veces me canso de verme siempre “igual” y todo en mi ser grita “cambio”, el miedo a terminar en “fashion-victim” rara vez me lleva a apostar por un cambio radical.

Fue sólo cuando empecé a dedicarme de lleno a la Imagen y Estilismo Personal, que entendí que el hecho de que tengamos un “estilo” determinado, no implica que no podamos aventurarnos a nuevas propuestas que puedan ampliar nuestro repertorio, ayudándonos a lucir una imagen renovada y fresca, siempre y cuando vaya acorde con nuestra morfología, agracien nuestra edad, etc.

Si quieres un cambio en tu look, pero no quieres algo muy drástico al principio, intenta estos 3 tips que nunca fallan

Although my fashion style is now as chameleonic as my taste in perfumes and music, I’ve always had a tendency for the classic. I never dared much with clothes in the past, and even now I have to push myself to venture into more fashion forward trends. 

It was only when I started in the world of Personal Image and Style, that I realized that having a certain style, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try new trends, that could eventually improve and invigorate our overall image, taking into consideration that they suit our bodies and are “age gracing”.

If you feel bored with your current  look, but don’t know quite well what to change or how, try these 3 easy steps, before jumping into anything too dramatic:

Fashion & The Office Attire

OFFICE WEAR.jpg

Hay muchas amantes de la moda que a menudo se encuentran en la encrucijada de querer usar sus piezas preferidas más a menudo  o aquellas que mejor representan su estilo, pero las encuentran  “muy fashion” para sus ambientes laborales, por temor a ser juzgadas o por no cumplir con el -para muchas- rígido “corporate look”.

El look corporativo responde a ciertos códigos protocolares, en casos muy bien establecidos por la compañía, en otros netamente “inferidos” por sus empleados, en otros relegados al “sentido común” (craso error),  y en otros –lamentablemente- inexistentes. En línea general se puede decir que por excelencia el look de trabajo o de oficina consiste en colores monocromáticos, con la inclusión de estampados discretos, con prendas clásicas que no busquen atraer la atención o desconcentren del medio laboral. Este concepto no se debe confundir con la imagen corporativa, ya que la imagen corporativa se define  a través del empleado usando la visión, misión y objetivo de la empresa, y esta varia según el sector y target de la misma.

Estoy atrapada entonces con la misma ropa aburrida de siempre? Ese no es mi estilo !

Many fashion lovers often find themselves at the crossroads of wanting to use “statement” pieces or fashion-forward items that they love and better represents their style, but that might be a little too much for their work environment, looking out of place or mainly out of fear of being criticized.

The “corporate look” carries certain codes, most of which are mainly established officially by the company, others have to be “inferred” by their employees, others are a result of “common sense” (define common, define sense!), and others are –unfortunately – inexistent.

“Do I have to use the same boring clothes again and again? That’s not my style !”

7 Tips for Mixing and Matching Prints

mixing-prints

Combinar estampados es un estilo al vestirse, que es favorecido por muchos, pero temidos por la mayoría. Parece que fuese un estilo reservado a las blogueras “street style o celebridades, pero no visualmente aceptado en nuestro atuendo diario.

Yo, en lo particular soy una adepta, pero cada vez que lo llevo, no falta al que no le parezca “raro” o no le “cuadre” 🙂 

Quieres usar y combinar estampados como una pro? Aquí te doy 7 tips básicos de cómo hacerlo…

Mixing and Matching prints is a style loved by many, but dreaded by most. It seems as if it is a way of dressing reserved to “street style” bloggers and/or celebrities, but not a style “visually” accepted in our daily jobs.

I love it, I’m a fan of it, but each time I wear it, I must admit there’s always the dissonant comment about how my outfit looks “odd” or “weird”, while others are surprised by how well it goes together.

Do you want to wear it like pro? Here are 7 tips on how to do so…

New Eyeshadow Palettes: Master Palette by Mario & Ultimate Basics

eyeshadow-palettes

Hola corazones, el post de hoy va dedicado a la belleza. Hace tiempo que no me sentía tan emocionada con la llegada de nuevas paletas de sombras al mercado…tenía un sentimiento de “más de lo mismo” cada vez que veía una, que casi había hasta perdido el interés. Eso se disipó con la llegada de la palette Modern Rennaissance de Anastasia Beverly Hills, que incluía colores vibrantes, que daban lugar a la creatividad, sin caer en extravagancias.

Hello everyone! Today’s post is dedicated to beauty. It’s been a long time since I wasn’t  this excited about new eyeshadow palettes hitting the market…I guess there was a feeling of “I’ve seen it before”, as if it was more of the same so to speak.  That changed with the arrival of Anastasia Beverly HillsModern Renaissance, which brought vibrant and different colours to the makeup scene, some of which were thought too hard to mix and match, and they ended up being just perfect and sold out everywhere, giving room to creativity -without being overwhelming- when it came to adding colour to the eyes.

Fall’s 2016 Biggest Trend: Leopard Prints

leopard-intro

Hello darlings, it’s been a while, during summer I broke my middle finger, and had a deep cut in my index, all from my right hand, which left me unable to write for a couple of months, but I’m back, and with me, one of my favorite prints: The Leopard one!

Yes, wild animal prints will be all the rage this fall/winter, leopard one being at the helm of the show. Way back when, I was about 18 years old, I thought animal prints had a cheap look to it, and often thought of them as too edgy for my –then– conventional taste. Fast forward to some  years ago, probably around the time Kate Moss established leopard print as a new neutral, I was already a converted.

They go with absolutely everything, from a formal to a casual look, and these are my main styling tips to wear it right: Continue reading “Fall’s 2016 Biggest Trend: Leopard Prints”

Powder Foundations: The Summer Solution

 

Powder

With the summer already here- well at least in some parts of the world- certainly not here in Brussels :-(, most of us are faced with having to change our makeup routine and adapt it to the humidity and heat of the warmer months, which brings powder foundations to the starring role, being a great and quick solution to our makeup routine.

Powder foundations will give you enough coverage and a refined polished look to achieve flawless skin in no time, doubling up as a retouching powder throughout the day as well.

The most important thing is to pick the right one suited to your skin type and that provides the coverage you desire. Here are some recommendations (from high-end to drugstore) according to skin type:
