Dos Cameos :)

Negro1 con fondo

Negron con fondo small 


Negra

This outfit asked for a little handmade touch so I added two of the cameo pins that I make out of polymer clay. They look antique and so sweet in person. These cameos always "talk to me" about new ways to be incorporated into my outfits. I can't wait to create new ones in 2010, I really want to experiment with different old-looking colors.

And this sweater! Oh! Pure perfection, I want to thank so much the designer that came out with this great design! I love all the little ruffles and details everywhere. How clever and flattering for the female figure. This sweater makes you feel like a princess.

Sweater: Anthropologie

Skirt: The J. Peterman Company

I HOPE THAT YOU HAD A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING YESTERDAY!!!!

Booties 

I'm in love with my boots, they're so comfortable, practical and beautiful. My favorite part: the little ruffles :) They add a feminine touch that I highly appreciate. These boots were made in Brazil, a country that Bill and I cannot wait to visit one day. Thank you Brazil! I will see you in person one day. But in the mind time: Thank you Anthropologie for bringing a little bit of Brazil to us :)

Black Jeans

Pantalon con fondo small

When I was a teenager I used to wear blue jeans a lot, then I stopped doing it and now I am wearing them again (skirts and dresses are my still favorite ;) These ones in particular are perfect, they're a little bit stretchy (sooo comfortable!) and the color is great. I love to wear them with this adorable linen jacket that Bill got for me a few years ago. I added the hat and the heels for a feminine touch :)

Do you wear blue jeans? If yes, how do you wear them? What's your favorite way? I would love to hear from you!

A Romantic Sunset :)

Not too long ago Bill and I were lucky to attend a special party in Malibu. The location was a real paradise and we got to witness the most spectacular and romantic sunset ever. The light was so orange, it looked almost artificial. Then, the dinner was delicious and the champagne amazing. We both had a great time. I'm glad that I have these few pictures to share with you from that glorious day :)

Secret Agent

Black hat and red con fondo

Here there is some more drama inspired by the previous outfit. I played a little bit with the hat, wearing it in two different ways. 

Sombrero hat

This second hat style makes me want to run for President of the Charlie Chaplin  secret club of fans. Natalie found it sooo funny :) I thought that it was kind of cool to mix the masculinity of the hat with the feminine makeup.

Thinking in Bright Yellow

Yellow top con fondo

I missed my little ruffle top for a while so I decided to wear it in a different way (compared to way I wore it here). I went for a mix of relaxed/dramatic look with lots of eyeliner and bright yellow beret. Color and makeup are the main accessories here. In the end the outfit is pretty simple and there is no jewelry at all as you can see.

Top: Love Stitch (They don't sell directly to the public online, only to resellers. I found this top at a tiny store here in lA.)

Up in the Mountains

Mountains 1 copy

We spent our weekend up in the mountains with the kids  and we just had the best time. The weather was perfect. So beautiful that we decided not to drive at all. All we did was walk around and go everywhere by foot. 

This photo is courtesy of Natalie who discovered my Canon camera for the first time. She took a couple of great pictures so we decided to declare her our official family photographer. 

Almost everything that I am wearing here is from Anthopologie. I got the hat over there at a great hat store that we love, it is 100% wool felt and it looks a little bit like from the 70's.

(I will be back tomorrow with a completely different look :)


Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz

Yellow one bee only

I hear something...

Paper bees on fondo

About the outfit: it's just relaxed and casual, perfect for someone that's about to meet some paper bugs on her way to work or something like that :)I had so much fun creating these backgrounds with my little paper bees (they're a digital collage). It's like I was really in that place. Imagine how cool if I could create actual paper bees in that size. I'm sure that I can do it with the right kind of paper. I should try it one day.
