Copycat from the Past

//Maxi skirt: vintage //Blouse: Zara //Ankle boots: Zara

It was early 1990's, when our gray-haired primary teacher broke her hip and had to stay in hospital for a month.The next day the whole school was fidgeting of excitement to see the new substitute teacher. Rumor was that it would be the bald, sweating vice principal who was openly called "Mr. Pig" (even by his dear wife).

Maybe that's why we, the most loud, hyper active and nerve-wrecking bunch of school kids were left totally stunned when class room door opened that morning. In came sweating Mr. Pig with this totally gorgeous, puffy-haired, legs-up-to-the-sky creature of a woman in hip-hugging, ankle-long black leather skirt that made a squeaking sound as she trotted towards the podium.

Exactly 20 years later and I'm wearing her outfit.

Something French

My friend went to Paris (...to visit the private house and factory of  Louis Vuitton in Asnières)
 And all I got was this black box (...from Ladurée)
Feel happy as a Japanese girl with her new Hello Kitty -blings!

Autumn Leaves

 //Jacket: Stella Simona //Tee: Zara //Jeans: Pieces // Heels: Capa de Ozono //Bag: Balenciaga 

Autumn has definitely come to Mexico.
Judging by the colors of the outfit, it has found its way to my closet, too.

Oh come sing, miss Edith Piaf!

Breathe and Reboot

//Jeans: Zara //Top: American Vintage //Peplum Belt: Zara //Heels: BCBGMazAzria

Sometimes life gives all the obstacles at once.
I know there are hungry children in Africa and my little sorrows are nothing compared to theirs.
Still, I feel like I need to breathe and reboot my system.
That in mind I'll be soon hopping on a plane and sharpening my nails in the city that never sleeps.

Yeah, Leather!

//Jacket: Stella Simona //Jeans: Zara //Tee: James Perse // Boots: Céline //Necklace Rapsodia

I have a confession to make.

For years I have admired ladies around the globe wearing ultra chic leather jackets. At the same time I haven't been able to see myself in one. For some reason every single one I tried on made me look like some wannabe bad-ass butch from MC Naquita.

This year my luck changed. I found a brown beauty from this lady waiting for me (pretty patiently) at a store in DF.
Afterwards, I have been on the roll biker-wise. 
You'll see, ehem..

For Old Time's Sake

//Corset: vintage //Pants: BCBG MAXAZRIA //Heels: Zara //Bag: Chanel

Call me nerd, but I  L O V E  history. Reading, watching, breathing it.
Black and white movies, biographies from ancient Chinese emperors, 1800's  politics, Russian revolution. That's me.
My love for old times goes to fashion, too.
I have found it a bit difficult to find good vintage stores in Mexico, as in Europe you can spot one almost at every corner.  It's like please Sir, that piece of unwashed polyester crap from H&M you're asking 600 pesos for is not vintage.
But as they say, keep looking and you'll get there. Think I've now found my hot spot. Or what do you say about my gorgeous pre loved designer piece corset? Sure, it was about 3 times my size when I found it, but after a visit to the tailor's, she is just perfect.

Little Wings

 //Jeans: Pieces //T-Shirt: The Hanger //Scarf: Alexander McQueen //Heels: Emilio Pucci

I don't know if there is any of you like me out there, finding it extremely challenging to find perfectly fitting, comfy yet still chic t-shirts?

I've been through them all, I swear, but have not yet found the ultimate finer one. (For casual ones, go James Perse and Vince). This little black wings-y thing is quite close though. Its black, it's not see-through, it's made of silk and lace. And it has a little twist on the sleeves.

Just that it is so well fitted for my body that it takes extra 20 minutes to get off without having my man to help me.

Damn viking's shoulders!

//Alpaca Sweater: tailored //Skirt: Zara //Knee Socks: Marcoliani //Heels: Zara //Eye wear: Chanel

Lately I've been spending too many late nights geeking by the computer for work.
This means that I look tired as a mother of 5 and that I need to switch to glasses instead of contact lenses.
I'd love to be able to look cool and chic in eye wear like some people, but end up most of the times looking like his long lost twin sister.

Go Studs!

 //Skirt: Zara //Shirt: Bershka //Booties: Chloé //Vest: LOB //Ring: Aldo

 I've been after Zara's studded leather skirt since late summer. Had a crystal clear picture tattooed before my eyes of my ultimate style crush, miss Freja Beha Erichsen, wearing the skirt like a fairy in leather. A little Bikerbell.
I'm no FBE, but boy will I wear it to death...

//Dress: tailored in Bolivia // Boots: Stella McCartney //Hat: Red Dragon

If something, the McCartneys really seem to know how to affect on us little people.
It's like what MC daddy did in pop music is what Stella does for casual chic clothing.
 Simple yet perfectly fitting lines. 
 Every piece has something catchy; a cut, a fabric, a heel, a little bling... Something, that makes it different from the hundreds of thousands trying to imitate.
