Equal

Crop tops.
Crop tops.
Crop tops.


Como es que una moda (o mejor llamemosla tendencia)
llega con todo y se le queda a algunos pegados al ADN? es decir, si no lo uso no soy nadie. Que pasa ahora con la moda de los "crop tops" que estan usando todas las niñas de la ciudad? no entiendo, porque es que todas TIENEN QUE vestirse igual.
No tengo nada contra ellas, mas bien tengo algo en contra de como funciona la moda en Lima. Pues asi se vu
elve, una "moda. ¿Que vimos el año pasado? todas las chiquillas en los malecones o boulevards de la capital tenian falda de bobos (3 tiempos) y polo de tiras negro (o blanco o gris), no habia practicamente una sola chiquilla que pudiese ponerse otra cosa, ya que sino, no estaria a la "moda"
Que tiene de malo ser uno mismo? usar lo que quieras, cuando quieras y donde quieras?? el problema radica en que ultimamente la juventud se esta volviendo cada vez mas producidas, chicas de 17 quieren parecer de 25, y tener novios de 30
...pero porque?! que tiene de malo verse de 17 años!! porque hay apuro en crecer, igual eventualmente tendran 25 y creanme que querran parecer de 17.

Dejen de llevarse por ten
dencias tontas o modas pasajeras, busquen su estilo y mantenganse firmes ante posibles criticas, no siempre todas tienen que verse como un ejercito de niñas, en este caso "crop toperas" No digo que esa clase de polos sean usados SOLO por ellas, se que hay muchas personas que les gusta ese estilo y la libertad de expresion (de la panza) que permite esa clase de polos, pero por ahora la mayoria de comentarios que escucho a mi alrededor es: crop tops? ay no, voy a parecer chibola de 18.

Mas bien, asi como ustedes toman po
secion de un tipo de estilo especifico y lo usan hasta gastarlo al 100%, haganlo igual con otro tipos de prendas! van a ver como hay mas de una cosa que les queda bien! Estan en toda la etapa de experimentacion, de buscar que les gusta, que las hace ver mejor y cual sera su estilo para el futuro.

Les muestro algunos ejemplos de formas de vestir de chicas entre 15 - 20 años alrededor del mundo, ellas hacen de esas prendas su estilo y mas bien, no quieren ser una mas del monton, lo que importa en estos dias...es sobresalir.

PHAscinating Purple

Since it was about time to post the color of the week i was thinking: i should do not only color of the week in clothes, it could be color of the week in home & deco as well!

First let's start with rooms

this one is too much for me

Now moving on with living rooms

i adore this one

a purple kitchen)

then, we can never forget the little things that will
light up a space

and finally: bathrooms!

too bohemian for me

What else would you like to be purple in your house? i would love some ideas since i'm planning on painting my house, my living room actually, but i'm not sure what color should i use since i've always crave purple for a room (mine is kind of baby blue atm)

Interior Design in Peru!

Well just for you to see! I'm now presenting a Peruvian House on the Beach, by this two amazing architects and interior designers!

Alexandra Obradovich y José de Col


The green and purple that initially inspired the house decor appears now
in the deck, where the main attraction is the sofa, wich is repeated all along other
spaces in the house

The house contains objects from everywhere, mostly, vintage or antique or bought
during trips to Asia


The materials that were used around the house appears gathered round the fire place
as a context, a way to show what will you find when you walk around the whole place

Aerial view from the living room

They also used peruvian fabrics to do the cushions, mixing the bright colors with the
white and brown to balance the space

The semi spiral staircase has an important role, divides de 1st floor in
two spaces, the living area and the dining area, and has a small water fountain
underneath it

Again the purple and the green have the main roles in the deck area, with
the kitchen open looking at the ocean


Let me know your thoughts...if you wanna see more amazing houses go to Casas Una Revista de Cosas


Love xo

And The Oscar goes to...


So yesterday were The Oscars (as maybe the whole world knew) but what i will try to do today here is a tiny review of the awards and gowns wore in the ceremony.

Even tho this event is all about the performances, we all know is also all about the DRESS! so i will start with the winner of the night and then go on with my own BEST and WORST, hope you enjoy!

First i think i should start with the winner of the night, "The Hurt Locker"
That low budget movie was the big winner of the night, receiving 6 academy awards including Best Movie and Best Director, and for a fun fact, Kathryn Bigelow was james Cameron Ex's wife!!! so it became and Ex Battle!

I personally liked the gown, but it didn't make her look like a Director
i guess i needed the dress to show more power, but at the same time
i like that it's simple, so it kinda reflects her personality


Ooooook so now let start with me favourites now: BEST DRESSED OSCAR 2010

NUMBER ONE

Vera Farmiga in Marchesa
Gosh the dress...THE DRESS!!!! How i wish i could go back to my school
days and have that dress on my prom night!It was SO elegant, so avant-garde, yet so chic.
The perfect choice for a gala
like this! you could see she had some curves and the dress was not even revealing! i just wanted to go there
and touch the fabric and maybe smell it! (maybe not...ok just a little) it looked like silk ohhh,
well i could go on like this but there will not be more space for the other dresses, so
my humble veredict: PERFECT CHOICE

NUMBER TWO

Demi Moore - Versace
Well i don't really think you can go wrong with Versace cotour, but in this case
she could not be more right! even i'm not a fan of that blush color but i think it made her glow!
(yes! glow in the dark!) and the textures were so perfect, i could picture her like a little salmon
with all those layerings going on around her body, wich let me say, she is a hot mamma! i wanna
look like this when i'm older! (like i'm not too old already)

NUMBER THREE

Elizabeth Banks - Versace
Again, who could go wrong with this? I love the lavender-ish color and the layerings!!
What is going on here people?! i want all your gowns NOW! please! Even tho i loved it i do think
she needed some bling! like a neckless or something, but she does look cleaned up!
i keep rememering her as the little skank in the 40 Year Old Virgin so this was
a nice surprise to all of us.


NUMBER FOUR

Sandra Bullock - Marchesa
I'm starting to feel these two houses (Marchesa and Versace) got the oscar as
best to dress stars last night. I'm not a big fan of stuff that glows or sparkle (every time i say
"stuff" i keed picturing Meryl Streep with that The Devil Wears Prada look, sayinf: this...STUFF?)
Well yeah, moving on if it sparckles is not my thing but this girl looked really pretty
speacially with those red blood lips, and she won! (The Oscar at least)

NUMBER FIVE

Charlize Theron - Christian Dior
Another good choice, i didn't like it in the beggining, i'm not a big fan of having
fabric around my chest area that pretty much says: hey! here are my boobs!
But now that i look at this dress again i think the color is lovely and the dress is neat
Good eye for fashion Charlize.

NUMBER SIX

Cameron Diaz - Oscar de la Renta
Again the sparckels are IN, i did love the "i'm a princess" gown
she lloked so feminine and pretty, way to go Cam, all dress up we can see ayeee
i couldn't get pics from the after party but her dress for that was even better!

NUMBER SEVEN

Kate Winslet - Yves Saint Laurent
This girl always knows what to wear and how to wear it! even tho i think she could look
a little more flirty or girlie, i do think this dress was for the occation.
Perfect accesories and a little clutch and that kind of "i'm back from the 50's" hair, good choice


WORST DRESSED OSCAR 2010 (FROM MY POINT OF VIEW)

Miley Cirus - Jenny Packhan

I didn't like the dress, she tried to look elegant and glamorous and at the same time
a little bit like a rockstar, let's face it Miley: you are just a kid still!
i also didn't like the fact that the bottom part looked so flat, like something was missing.

Kristen Stewart - Monique Lhuillier

Even when the color was so precious, she just didn't know how to wear it
Accesories were missing and she, pretty much with the "i don't care about anything"
attitude, made the dress look dull.
I do give her credit for taking a shower and dressing up (even putting on some heels)
instead of some all stars, but then again, what's wrong with being feminine sometimes?

Anna Hendricks - Elie Saab

Again with the light colours, but in this case, instead of making it look so pretty like Demi did,
she kind of makes this dress looks like sleep wear, and that color pretty much
looks like her skin, it was a good dress, but maybe in some other tone.

Rachel McAdams - Elie Saab

I don't really know what Elie Saab was thinking, but she didn't really do a good job
in dressign stars. I LOVE! this actress and i think she is gorgeous and pretty much fits
in anything they put in front of her, but this make it look like she was kind of pregnant, and the fabric
may have been awesome in some other presentation, but here looked like a swirl of colours
placed in no specific order. I do loved the cut in the front part of the dress tho but i think she could have
use something more chic. (oh! and accesories, a neckless or a headband, something to bright up that face!)

Meryl Streep - Chris March

Meryl, oh Meryl!!! How could you! how could you use this dress that makes you look so old!
You! that in The Devil Wears Prada pretty much had a whole amazing closet
You! that have had so much style among the years
You! That make me love fashion and actually care to look out for designers!
You! the creator of that "stuff"
Well so yeah you can pretty much know what i think of this dress... DULL (she could do better that this)

Jennifer Lopez - Armani Prive

Am i the only one that wants to poke the dress and see if it pops?
Such a wrong choice for a girl that have those hips and bum!!
i don't get it Jlo, you just wanted to make a point? That you have the biggest bum in
the Oscars? Or you were trying to proove that showing your hips makes you more..MORE voluptuous?
Yeah bad choice woman, you looked too futuristic for that event, you might as well
share fashion secrets with Lady Gaga (not that i don't love her style)
oh, and you looked like a table lamp.

WORST DRESSED OF THE WHOLE - ENTIRE - OSCARS
ACCORDING TO ME OF COURSE

Sarah Jessica Parker - Do i even care?
Ok i do is Chanel (chanel????!!!)

I know this girl right here is a fashion icon, and she always goes over the edge with
her gowns and bla bla bla, this is horrible! i hate it! it looks like a silk towel,
that she used to wrap her body while changin her clothes and then found out she was
already late for the event! And that stripe around her neck,
i'm not wearing it and i'm already choking.
Finally, the hair! was she in a convertible on her way there? did she forgot to do her hair?
Oh i get it! Since she was in the shower and put that towel, she also put on a shower
hat and then just removed it.
I know there are lots that say it's an amazing gown, she is also in the Best Dressed portion
i just think they are all blind, being edgy is one thing, that is not called edgy, for me that is a mistake.
I have to add that she can pull off a good outfit almost always but this is a no-no


Well this was my review (tiny i know i know) but i hope it can do good or bad, i have nothing agains the starts that wore what they wore, i do have something against their stylists! People, they pay you to dress them up! you can afford mistakes like that!

*I want to add, that the guy that was presenting the red carpet, Jay (the on on America's Next Top Model) had a HORRIBLE blazer/tux/jacket. How can he (or she) be a fashion critic if he himself dresses up like a curtain.

That's it my fellows, don't take it personally, i just wanted to share my opinion

Love to all and have a good week!

Colour of the Week

Howdy my friends, i was thinking of doing a color of the week thing so we can all check out whats in in that colour. i will start with my favourite one BLACK, is such an elegant, trendy, hip and never out of style colour. I know some of them can relate it to the Emo's, Dark, Metalheads, etc, but its because they have taken it from us, from who we love to wear it just because we love the mistique in the colour, and not by whom relate it to dark, death, tragic and sadness.
So hope you enjoy the mix!


Starting with the queen of elegance Audrey Hepburn, boy she can
make it look sooooo chic!
The perfect (at least for my) elegant dress, maybe more like
"i'm going to a ceremony" dress
Since i couldn't find the perfect LBD, here i post
some of my fav choices

Skirts, which girl is not crazy abbout them?

Spandex leggins, i personally own a pair and i L-O-V-E them
makes the look a little bit grungy but with the right
accesories can be really chic as well

TUTUS!!!! i know the original colour is pink, but since i don't really
fancy that i rather have the black one, and those are soooo in now
i need one!!! (anyone has an extra pair??)

Now we can mix and match black and white,
"pure with dark" bows are also so in now!
it gives you the extra finishing touch

Continuing with the black & white thing, another thing is in
and i used to hate are sequins, i dont really like stuff that shines! but now that i see
that semi-blazer, i think i could wear it, it looks fresh (idk why :s)

Again with sequins, this small short (a short short hehe) is really cute,
speacially if you are going partying or doing something that requires
"something elegant"

When i saw this Dior shoes i fell in love (but yeah i don't really have
an extra $ 1,400 floating around)
and last but not least, this booties!!! oh how i adore them, i seriously
need thigh high boots, and those Louboutins are perfect! i just can manage myself
walking on high heels :)


Well i hope i can actually remember to do a colour of the week next week, since there is a lot going on here and i'm not really looking forward to it

Cap Day is sooooo close!!!!
