It's old, but we still love it.... No words needed

It's time for... Masculine shirts!

I know that all of you are experts in all the fashion subjects but I would like to tell you a little bit about what I think is a good bet to the next season.
I think is time to take your old (or new :) ) masculine shirt out of your wardrobe, or if you have the chance to find one in your father's or your boyfriend's would be even great! The one that i love the most right now is a blue "oxford" shirt (I show you it at the pictures below) that I bought in Bershka in November. It is a little bit oversize, which in my opinion, is the secret. I have put it mixed with my clogs (from Zara, old), that I think they are going to be necessary also this Spring but in a new way. More like these Swedish Clogs ( ) I have some regrets not to buy a pair when I was in Stockholm last summer, but they were expensive!! (Well, that is another story, I will tell you in other post...)

I decided to make this post after going shopping last week and have seen that a lot brands are including now shirts in their collections. I have investigated also Famous Designer Collections in Défilés  PRÊT À PORTER  Printemps-été 2011 ( and I show you now what I've found:


Maison Martin Margiela, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michel Kors, Stella Mccarteny, Viktor & Rolf

Honeysuckle. Madreselva. PINK.

You know this colour? It's called honeysuckle, or PANTONE® 18-2120 TCX. Like it or not, it's the colour of optimism, and so I think it arrived just in time for everyone. They say that every woman should wear it; if you don't like it that much, then wear it in your underwear, in a bracelet...
In any case, start getting used to it. It's the colour of the season!
This are some sets I made in, inspired by the catwalks of Spring 2011, when I saw in that it's the colour of the year. 
 Conoces este color? Lo llaman madreselva, o PANTONE® 18-2120 TCX. Te guste o no, es el color del optimismo, así que creo que llega justo a tiempo para todos. Dicen que todas las mujeres deberían llevar algo de este color; si no te gusta mucho, entonces llévalo en tu ropa interior, en una pulsera...
En cualquier caso, empieza a acostumbrarte. Es el color de esta temporada!
Aquí hay algunos sets que hice en cuando vi en que es el color del año, y que están inspirados en las pasarelas Primavera 2011.

You still don't want to believe me?  Todavía no me crees?

As I've seen in, in addition to clothing, pink seems to be the colour of the season for your lips and make up as well, together wish some orange tones, always in their neon version for the summer.  Here you have some examples!
Tal y como he visto en,  además de para la ropa, parece que el rosa es el color de  la temporada también para los labios y el maquillaje, junto a algunos tonos anaranjados, siempre en la versión neón para el verano. Aquí tienes algunos ejemplos:

Feet Obsession

This is a little post where I want to show how can we (actually me) be obsessed with shoes. I have too much pairs, so much that I have had to buildt my own "shoes wardrobe". It's not perfect, but useful and easy to do. This is only the beginning. Welcome to the wonderful world of shoes!

Discovery of the day: ASOS marketplace

I was just missing so much the great vintage shops that I found in cities such as Brussels or Paris, when I made a cool discovery today: ASOS has a vintage shop as well! It might not be as charming as going for a walk and visit all those great thrift stores, but it might work till I find some near my place.

When you enter asos (, you'll see the Marketplace at the top bar. Click and dream... And I say dream, because it's not the site to go if you're willing to find bargains. Yes, you can find some cheap stuff, but some others' prices rise till the unattainable (at least for most of us mortals). They give you the possibility to search by size, boutique, product type, colour, condition, pattern and delivery options. As it usually happens in all shops and, above all, in second hand shops, as we select your choices, offers are considerably reduced, but we'll still keep the hope to find that special acquisition for our wardrobe...

But ASOS Marketplace goes further and, in their manifiesto ( , they declare their website as a fashion community. Not only you can buy vintage clothes, but also sell something you have and You don't want anymore, you can create a boutique or simply take a look at their main page ( , where they show some pictures of street style, new items and other pictures that can be inspiring. 

If I could, I'd rather take a flight to Paris and visit its great thrift stores, but hey, Asos Marketplace seems to be a good idea with a promising future. Specially if it works as well as the Asos website itself... For now, I'll keep it in mind and start saving, since I seem to fall in love with the most expensive items in the website...

Estaba pensando cuánto echo de menos las geniales tienda vintage que he encontrado en ciudades como Bruselas o París, cuando hice un gran descubrimiento: ASOS tiene una tienda vintage tambien! No es tan apetecible como darse un paseo visitando tiendecillas de segunda mano, pero puede valer hasta que encuentre alguna cerca de donde vivo...

 Cuando entras en ASOS  (, verás el Marketplace en la barra de arriba. Haz click y sueña... Y digo suena, porque no es el sitio idóneo si estás deseando encontrar gangas. Sí,  puedes encontrar algunas cosa baratas, pero los precios de otras suben hasta lo inalcanzable (al menos para la mayoría de nosotras, las mortales). Te dan la posibilidad de elegir talla, tienda, tipo de prenda, color, estado, estampado y opciones de envío (según dónde estés). Como suele pasar en todas las tiendas y, sobre todo, en las de segunda mano, conforme pones tus prioridades, la oferta se reduce considerablemente, pero todavía mantendremos la esperanza  de encontrar esa adquisición especial para nuestro armario... 

Pero ASOS Marketplace va más allá y, en su manifiesto, (, declaran su website como una comunidad de moda. No sólo puedes comprar ropa vintage, también puedes vender algo que tienes y ya no quieres, puedes crear una boutique o simplemente echar un vistazo a su página principal (, donde te muestran fotos de street style, items nuevos y otras fotos que pueden resultar inspiradoras.

Si puedira, preferiría coger un vuelo a París y visitar sus geniales tiendas vintage, pero bueno, Asos Marketplace parece ser una buena idea con un prometedor futuro. Sobretodo si funciona tan bien como la web de Asos.... Por ahora, la mantendré en mente e iré ahorrando, porque siempre me voy a enamorar de lo más caro de la web...

For example, this
Hermès blazer, which seems to be my favourite item, costs 528.52 euros and is not even my size...  
Por ejemplo, este blazer de Hermès, que parece ser mi prenda favorita, cuesta 528.52 euros y ni siquiera está en mi talla...

Another good option, even in a bigger size
and only 328.86 euros, is this Chloe Military blazer
Otra buena opción, en una talla incluso más grande y por solo 328.86 euros, es este blazer militar de Chloe:
You can always go for the cheapest option! The
plastic 'Scrabble' Letter earrings for 1.76 euros:
Siempre puedes ir a por la opción más barata! Los pendientes de letras de "Scrabble" de plástico por 1.76 euros:

If you have a moment, take a look! As they say: "Your ‘too tights’ are another’s ‘just rights’"...
Si tienes un rato, echa un vistazo! Como ellos mismos dicen:  "Tus 'demasiado ajustado' son los 'justo a mi medida' de otro"...
