WHAT WAS I THINKING…

October 31, 2008 in Uncategorized by Andy

It´s really just my fault, for trying to hold on to the warm weather as much as possible. You can´t really blame me tho, I am a Mexican girl living in a country by the North Sea and yeah, I do get asked A LOT why is it that I am here, having such perfect weather in Mexico???

The more I complain about the weather, the more I realize that it wont change! So I better start making peace with mother nature and accepting that for the next few months, I will be living in freezer..
Naive me, thought that going out tonight wearing a sweater underneath my leather jacket would be enough, truth is, I COULDN´T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG!!! The weather has drop sooo much in the past 2 days, its crazy!!! I was freezing, I swear, I am not exagerating!! And then add
to that the fact that I was wearing a dress…Oh well….I´ll get over it…eventually, maybe one day :P

THE PROCESS…

October 30, 2008 in Uncategorized by Andy

I was meant to post this pics like 2 days ago, along with the one with me wearing it,so you could see it better, thing is, my bf has been working REALLY late for the past 2 days so there is no one to take good pics of the whole outfit and it´s not the same when I “try” take them by myself, so I have to wait for him to take them.

I will probably be wearing it today, im torn between 2 outfits, we might be going to a really cool bar in Amsterdam (Herrie), for a tequila night, tho Im not a big tequila fan, which people find strange since I am a mexican girl who doesnt like tequila, Go figure! haha! Truth is I dont drink, I had my moments back in highschool, but I have been member of the super healthy club for quite sometime now. I do the ocassional cocktail every once in a while (Did I mention that my bf´s brother is one of the best bartenders ever, so I do enjoy his cocktails very much every now and then.

So I dont know what Im going to wear tonight, but either way I´ll be posting about it :)

Here are the snap shots of the process of making the skirt, hope you like it!!!
Im working on another one as you read!!!! I am really excited about this one because if everything goes as planned, I think it could be potentially awesome!! I´ll be posting about that one maybe friday or saturday.
Whats up with me and becoming a skirt machine lately???, I´ll try and make some more stuff, tho I am self-taught so I make things I think I can figure out how to, so at the moment, jackets and stuff are out of the question! (they require patterns and so much more detail) I´ve made few dresses tho so maybe I´ll start with those again soon. Still trying to figure out which of the GORGEOUS BALMAIN creations I will try to take on….I´ll work on it, I´ll figure it out…..eventually haha!

* ABSOLUTE PERFECTION *

October 29, 2008 in Uncategorized by Andy

It goes without saying, that this collection has our heads spinning, wishing and daydreaming about owning at least a piece of it. I´ve seen a lot of shows before, lots of looks, lots of trends, but I swear to you when I say that, I´ve never seen a collection that I´ve fallen in love so much as I did with this one. I dont know what it is, actually I know exactly what it is, EVERYTHING about it its perfect! the shapes, the fabrics, the materials, the sequins, the stud details, THE SHOES FOR CHRIST SAKE!!!

I can´t get over it and the worst is that I keep looking at the pictures, trying to figure out a way to recreate my favorite pieces, but Im not quite sure its going to work, since there is so much detail to them.
Oh well, maybe, just maybe, I will win the lotto next friday and find myself buying the whole thing, you never know……haha!

In the meantime, I´ll post the pic of the fabric, its a plaid wool, in shades of grey and pink, I love it!!! I know, I know, I wear too much grey at this time of year, but I cant help it, I just love it so much!!! I promise to start splashing some color soon :P
