Just about black

Image
Although I admire a total black look sometimes have the feeling that is something missing. In this case I couldn't resit to wear a pair of purple and black stripped tights so halloween costume, and inadvertently enhance this staged look it by the flash in the pictures. The rest is just an LBD, leather biker, and silver accessories.

Aunque siempre admiro un atuendo negro total, a veces cuando trato de usarlo tengo la sensación de que algo falta. En este caso no pude resistirme a llevar además estas medias de rayas moradas y negras, tan de disfraz de halloween, aire que se intensificó inadvertidamente con el flash de las fotos. Lo demás es un sencillo LBD, chamarra negra de piel y accesorios en plata. black leather biker: Mango / LBD: Julio / boots: Dinsko / silver clutch: Fun and Basics / stripped tights: H&M / necklace & earings: Ana Rosa Aceves

Nicely flat

The flat caps were used in England since 14th century, and wear them was even mandatory for a while. In the 1920's became really popular and used specially by kids and working class mens and later among the news boys or even recently within hip-hop culture. Traditionally are made of wool, mostly tweed, cotton, leather or corduroy. This tartan flat cap was bought in the traditional Obach Hat Shop in Barcelona (http://www.barretsobach.com/) and is one of may favorite spring & autumn items. The satchel bag was a present form my college best friend and is a fine handmade piece from south Mexico. And yes, hats are one of my favorite subjects. Las boinas planas pueden rastrearle hasta la Inglaterra del siglo 14th, donde su uso se volvió incluso obligatorio por un tiempo. En los anos 20's se volvieron populares sobre todo entre los niños y los trabajadores y después entre los voceadores y recientemente como parte de la cultura del hip-hop. Tradicionalmente se fabrican en lana, so…

Silver blue sky

Fortunately, sparkly clothes are not anymore exclusive for a night out and however they always can make me feel especial when I wear them. This metallic fake leather was a lucky found in a second hand street market, and this sky blue boots are also unusual for a reason: they are a not matched pair, but nobody is looking at the floor, or does it?

Por fortuna la ropa brillante ya no es exclusiva para salir en la noche y aun así siempre que la uso me hace sentir especial. Esta chamarra de piel sintética metálica fue un afortunado hallazgo en un mercadillo de ropa de segunda mano y las botas azul cielo son también especiales aunque por una razón di…

Wine and roses

Burgundy is the name of a wine but also the name of a color, and both are rich and warm. Popular in fashion during the last couple of decades the burgundy color can go between purple and brownish and is always smooth and classy. Also called auburn, wine or oxblood it is considered very European, maybe because is the name of a region in France, furthermore now is on the cover of every passport in the EU.  At the beginning I hesitated about mixing burgundy with orange & gray roses mini dress, but I ended loving the outcome, and I liked even more with this vintage maroon bonnet, a present from a good friend of mine. El burgundy o borgoña, tanto el vino como el color, son ambos ricos y cálidos. Popularizado durante las dos ultimas décadas por la industria de la moda, el color burgundy puede fluctuar hacia un tono mas morado o mas café. También se le llama guinda, rojo burdeos, granate o color vino y se considera intrínsecamente europeo, tal vez por la región de Francia a la que deb…
