Life is really good lately! I have just realised all the traveling planned for the next few months and that enough is putting a BIG smile on my face, not to mention my sister is having her second baby, so I am going to become an Aunt for the second time any minute in the next 2 weeks!
I am in Madrid right now, probably at the studio shooting with Vanity Fair as you read which is such a dream come true for me!!! Wish me luck!!!

It feels so strange to start posting from Amsterdam again, after all those amazing shoots in the US. We are back to “normal”, sort of and I hope you can forgive me for not having mind blowing locations to shoot at, but as acquainted as we are with Amsterdam, it’s sill quite a charming sight.
I am actually on my way to Madrid now to shoot for Vanity Fair, which is in itself a freaking surreal experience and which doesn’t seem real until it actually happens. Me shooting for Vanity Fair? Can you pinch me please?!?!?!? Extreme happiness is a total understatement at this point.

I hate saying goodbye, I really do and this is how I said goodbye to my small Road trip in the US, the final shoot, the end of Route 66, Santa Monica.
We sat on the beach for a while after 3 of the most amazing weeks of my life so far, so many memories and stories I am still dying to share with my family when I go home for a bit, some of which you have been sharing with me for the past few weeks. This was the last day in LA and I started to feel quite emotional about it, as the sissy that I can be sometimes, some tears started to roll down my face. I was sad but I was also happy, sad because it ended but happy because it happened or mainly extremely grateful for being able to experience it.
Time went by too fast, Palm Springs, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, The Hoover Damn, Disneyland, Universal and Warner Brothers studios, amazing days in LA meeting up with beloved friends. So much packing and unpacking to do, so many miles driven, so many songs playing on repeat on the radio, so much junk food left on the back seat. Such a perfect trip I will never ever forget. If you ever get the chance, do it! To travel is to live, don’t be afraid to see the world, to experience, to live!, there is nothing quite as regretful as sticking to your comfort zones because of fears.

LADY IN RED Mon, 26 Jan 2015 07:17:35 +0000 […]]]> AndyTorresSportmax10 AndyTorresSportmax7AndyTorresSportmax8 AndyTorresSportmax3 AndyTorresSportmax4AndyTorresSportmax6AndyTorresSportmax9 AndyTorresSportmax12 I’M WEARING  >>  Dress: Sportmax  |  Bag: COACH  |  Boots: Balenciaga  |  Sunglasses: Celine

THIS DRESS!!! I have been waiting to wear this Sportmax dress for the LONGEST time but the weather in Europe was obviously horrendous so I took it to LA with me. I have been slightly delayed on posting my content from the road trip just because we shot A LOT, which was my main goal. I knew that I was coming back to a few weeks of dark grey days, possibly constant rain and I needed to squeeze as many shoots as I could as long as I had the sun and the decent weather.

I am not often finding myself wearing dresses which is something that has been coming natural to me in terms of styling lately. All I want to wear is more “androgynous” styles and I am really into suits, yet when I find a dress that makes my heart skip beats, everything changes. I know a lot of you will think and say that you would have worn this dress with different shoes, like a stiletto, something more feminine. I get it but I didn’t picture it like that, I wanted to roughen it up a lot more, I didn’t want to look like I was on my way to a wedding but more like I was wearing a very cool dress with really unexpected boots. This is my thing, my way of styling things and I had to work with what I was carrying in my suitcase for a whole month, hence the repetitive styles when it comes to shoes and accessories. The key is to balance over dressing with underdressing. Don’t look too done up but never look too underdressed ;)
