080 BCN Fashion Week with Who is that Blonde

February 8, 2016

After Amsterdam and Paris, last week it was time for Barcelona Fashion Week! Better known as 080, this fashion week is all about offering a platform to upcoming designers and new talents such as Justicia Ruano and Krizia Robustella – two of my favorites shows this season! The first day started good when my outfit (and also Alex’ look!) immediately got noticed by Flash Moda from the Spanish national TV Channel as soon as I walked in! Down here you can see the part where I get interviewed, for the people that don’t speak Spanish: I’m explaining that I’m wearing desings from the local brands Valentina Garí and Maria Roch, and of course my beloved oldskool bag from Ruitertassen!

 

My favorite show to see that day  was Miquel Suay with an amazing menswear collection based around the concept of balanced infinity: elegant, graphic and comfortable!The second day was lots of fun: I met lots of amazing people and the shows were great! It started off with the catwalk presentation of Krizia Robustella, who brought back the hiphop 90’s on the song ‘no diggity‘. After that it was time for Punto Blanco to blow us away with underwear and pyjama’s based on the ‘Superman vs. Batman’ movie theme, sexy and fun at the same time: winner combination! My third favorite of this day was Sita Murt: an established brand which stands for timeless and classy femininity, what’s not to love?!

Today I was also spotted by the press, lucky me! I was asked for an interview for El Periodico (the national journal in Spain) to give my opinion on the 080 Fashion Week in comparisation to other fashion weeks like Paris and New York. They also loved to hear about my outfit, which was again completely from brands in Barcelona! I was wearing some very special trousers from Loretta Piovano in combination with my navy blue coat of Maria Roch and the most adorable clutch from Sarah’s Bag which I scored at Passage BCN! Check out the short article here:

Also I was very happy to meet one of my favorite models backstage one of the shows: Zhenya Katava! Isn’t she gorgeous?! 12695619_10153545820413250_1261466377_o

My last day at 080 I was wearing this beautiful velvet 70’s outfit from Ay Si! Barcelona in combination with my body from Boohoo.com and the most adorable bag from Les Petites Joueurs which I got from Passage BCN. I just LOVE everything about this outfit, don’t you?! Also, I was very lucky to spot the model Sam Steele – the shining star of the Punto Blanco show – in the photobooth in between shows and take a quick snapshot with him, oh my goodness!

It is hard to chose my favorite shows from this day because there were just so many good ones! Of course there was the most important show of 080: Custo Barcelona, which was happy as always with many colors, patterns and textures. However, I might prefer some of the smaller designers such as WOM & NOW, Lebor Gabala and Justicia Ruano. Why you might ask? Probably because I wanted to wear pretty much every one of their designs when I saw them walking down the runway, and the styling of the looks was simply amazing!! Even though 080 was missing two of their biggest catwalk presentations this season (Mango and Desigual both decided not to show this time), there was still more than enough talent to admire these days!

Unfortunately I couldn’t visit the last two days of 080 because I was busy shooting an editorial, which is going to be supercool by the way! Anyway, I can’t wait for next season, when I will be able to show off my summer outfits!

Lots of Love,

#OOTD: My Christmas Look

December 23, 2015

Finally, the Christmas days are starting tomorrow! I’m sure all of us had some small dramas about what to wear, and I am very curious which outfit you went for in the end! Last week you were already able to see a sneak peek of my Christmas Eve outfit and now I am sharing all the details, I hope you like it :)

What I find tricky about Christmas outfit’s is mainly the color combination because there are so many possibilities. Christmas Tree Red & Green…  Snowy White, Blue & Silver… Cozy Fireplace Red & Gold… I tend to love all of the combinations and start mixing them up, which doesn’t always result in the best outfits. This Christmas I’m going for a classic safe Black & Gold: a classy look with a touch of glam for the special occasion but still perfectly suitable for a cozy family gathering.

So… what am I actually wearing? You might recognize the black ‘pants’ which is in fact my beloved jumpsuit from Loretta Piovano. I changed its look by wearing this beautiful shirt from Zara over it. I love the material; it’s very thin and shiny, which gives an amazing light effect while moving. By combining this straight-on look with my black heeled booties I was aiming for a Balmain-inspired look, powerful yet feminine, do you think I pulled it off? Last but not least… accessories! I’m wearing two bracelets by Quoins which are gold with black leather details and a beautiful basic yet strong golden necklace which emphasizes the neckline of my shirt and makes the golden details pop. BOOM, Christmas I’m ready for you!

I will be out for the coming three days to be with my family and friends, so for now I am wishing you the happiest of holidays! You won’t have to miss me for long though, I will see you guys again soon with ANOTHER Giveaway for NYE! Yes, you guessed it right, I just really love the holidays!

Lots of love and happiness,

#OOTD Back to School! How to rock a Jumpsuit

October 29, 2015

Tomorrow it’s happening for me, I am going back to school! I will start my Master in Art Direction and Creative Advertising at the INSA Business School here in Barcelona, and I am looking forward to it like crazy! That is why I am dedicating today’s #OOTD to a school-proof outfit: simple but classy.

Earlier this week I was visiting the designer Loretta Piovano, who is known for her feminine designs and adding interesting details to the outfits in order to create unique pieces. One of the designs she gave me was this black jumpsuit, which has a gorgeous neckline and a perfect cut… I was immediately in love! The jumpsuit itself is a typical all-black-classic, which gives lots of space to varying styling options.

So for today guys… I NEED YOUR HELP! There are so many cool ways to wear this jumpsuit that I can’t decide which one to choose for my first day of school, let’s check them out:

The Classy Lady

For the first option I went for a feminine style with black heels, a turban and a draped scarf from S Oliver. As a color detail I am holding a bright blue clutch of Karl Lagerfeld, I got it in Paris last fashion week during the presentation of Karl’s new collection… I love it! While wearing this outfit I feel like a true lady who can go to class one moment (perhaps slightly overdressed, but definitely stylish!), and then go for a cocktail with a friend afterwards… who wouldn’t love this combination?!

Shop the Look:

Turban Mango: €9,99

Scarf Zara (similar): €25,95

Wallet Karl Lagerfeld (Pink): €85,-

Or in case you just LOVE the blue:

Blue Clutch Givency: €360,-

 

 

                                                                      The ‘Too Cool for School’                                                                  

Another idea is to just completely ditch the lady look and go for a streetstyle with my all-time favorite black Converse sneakers. With a comfy long navy-style cardigan I can comfortably walk around without getting cold and my big backpack can definitely hold any book I might need! Perhaps you might have noticed that the neckline of the jumpsuit changed… while being clumsy and putting it on wrong, I actually discovered that I like this straight neckline too, PLUS the back has a cool detail to it now! I’m not sure if Loretta Piovano had a reversible jumpsuit in mind when she designed this beauty, but it sure works! With the streetstyle look I feel confident and casual, which is also very important for a first day!

Girly Chic

Braids, black derby shoes and a fedora hat… how cute can it get?! To don’t look all too much like a naïve schoolgirl I edged up the look with a leather jacket and my little Moschino bag. I think it sends the message: I’m cute, but don’t mess with me! At least, that’s what I like to believe haha. Personally I love Fedora hats since they make an outfit instantly fashionable. The good ones are hard to find but once you got it… cherish it! In this girly chic outfit I feel stylish and ready to rock my day!

Photo Diary: My Week in Photos

October 26, 2015

Hi Guys!

Since last week so many things happened for me, I decided it would be a cool idea to keep up a small photo diary  so you can see what I have been up to!

Monday:

As you can see, today was packing day! What to take when you move to another country for a year or more?! Everything had to fit in the airplane so unfortunately I had to make some tough decisions, but I think I managed pretty well!

Tuesday:

Today it was THE day I had been looking forward to for a very long time already, it was time to start a new chapter and spread out my wings to Barcelona. After saying goodbye to all my family and friends I was warmly welcomed by my boyfriend Alex, who drove us to our new little palace. It was quite late already so we dropped everything, had dinner and went straight to sleep.

Wednesday:

Alex was already off to work early in the morning so I took on the project of making this little loft a home. It took me all day to empty my suitcases and decorate it, but I love the result! As a surprise I organized a romantic evening with dinner by candlelight and rose petals around the loft, it was lovely :)

Thursday:

In the morning I had a meeting with the designer Loretta Piovano and we discussed a very fun collaboration! Since I was in the city center anyway I decided to walk through Passeig de Gracia to enjoy the weather, the beautiful architecture and of course some shops! I had to prepare the styling for upcoming outfit shoots so this was the perfect occasion. In the afternoon me and Alex were invited to the presentation of the new NAAK collection, a brand for watches. The designs are young, fresh and colorful and the lookbook is beautiful!
