Shoes- Miss Kl (here)

Rings- Asos (here)

This title is basically what my wardrobe is all about. Vintage unique pieces and new items that add a modern edge to my looks.

1. The jacket is one of my favorite lately finds , got it for a great price in Beacons Closet  (here in Williamsburg). I spotted it 10 metres from me as soon as I got into the store and immediately tried it on fearing it wouldn’t have a good fit, ahh I was so wrong.. can’t wait to post outfit photos with it!

2. These chunky platforms are from Miss KL, the new UNIF Vapor shoes, perfect name huh. I have to admit they are very high but no pain is involved when you walk in them.. In fact, they feel quite comfortable.

3. I’m utterly obsessed with gold rings now.. if you dig these get them here for $13.

Este titulo es exactamente de lo que se trata mi closet. Piezas de segunda o vintage unicas y prendas nuevas que le dan un toque mas moderno a mis looks.

1. La casaca es de segunda mano y la encontre en Beacons closet a un precio demasiado razonable. En cuanto entre a la tienda la vi a diez metros y fui directamente a probarmela pensando que no quedaria bien puesta.. para mi sorpresa me quedo perfecta icon smile Old & New pronto posteare looks en el blog!

2. Estos zapatos los consegui gracias a Miss Kl, son los Vapor platforms de UNIF.. debo admiti que se ven bien altas pero no duelen para nada y son extremadamente comodas por que el taco se siente de 5cm.

3. Estoy obsesionada con anillos dorados y minimalistas, sobretodo estos que estan super accesibles y los pueden conseguir en Asos (aqui) a $13

Mixing Patterns :: Sheer plaid & Striped blazer

Happy Monday everyone!  We’ve been so lucky to get such good weather in Shanghai.  It has been mild, breezy, and cool with very little humidity.  I’m usually in a romper or boyfriend jeans during the day, and a dress with a leather jacket at night.

We took these photos on our last day in Shanghai and as we were heading to the airport, we wish we stayed longer.  We met up with our good friend, Devon, while we were here and he introduced us to his friends who have lived here for years.  When visiting a new city, we always appreciate being in the company of locals.  Their perspectives and insights were great warm introductions to the city.  Exploring Shanghai, meeting new friends, uniting with old ones, enjoying delicious xiao long bao, and attending the Hugo Boss show were some of the memorable highlights of our trip.  We wished we had more time to further explore Shanghai, but then again, we now have the perfect excuse to return =)

Thank you so much for reading!

So sorry for not updating in the past few days. I’ve been doing a lot of stuff including finally relaxing, getting vintage stuff (can’t wait to show you) and having fun with my friends from Peru. But I promise a lot of new posts and many different outfits on the blog this week. This look is literally the simplest one I have worn since I got here. I love boyfriend jeans and pairing them with sophisticated heels. This one is from Anthom, an online boutique with great stuff you should all check out. I plan to wear these jeans to death, not only with heels but also oxfords and graphic t-shirts. Also my obsession for mesh will never be over. I love this mesh version of a hooded sweatshirt. It might also look nice with a white racer back top and a pair of denim shorts. By the way the photos look kinda blurry cause me and my cousin were trying to figure out how to fix my camera! Its all good now so they won’t look like this anymore.

Anyways, what you’ve been waiting for..She Inside Giveaway winners! And they are: Marie Clemence, Helena Dewitt and Megan Tam!! Congratulations! You will receive an email soon with the voucher to spend $100 on She Inside. For the rest of you I have another giveaway coming soon so dont be mad at me please icon smile Blue Jeans. ha.  I really was surprised with the amount of entries the contest got. You should guys comment more, I really love to hear your feedback and I see a lot of you follow my blog!

Anyways can’t wait to get back into posting everyday. Hope you have a great monday.

No he estado actualizando el blog ultimamente y les pido disculpas. Siempre me gusta tener un post nuevo cada dia pero he estado haciendo de todo ultimamente, desde conseguir ropa de segunda (que ya quiero mostrarles), relajando un poco ya que lo necesitaba y viendo a varios amigos de Peru. Pero prometo muchos nuevos posts y looks distintos en el blog esta semana. Este outfit es el mas simple que he usado desde que llegue. Me encanta combinar boyfriend jeans con zapatos elegantes como ven aca. El jean es de Anthom, una tienda online que recomiendo chequear. Planeo usarlos bastante, no solo con tacos pero con oxfords y t-shirts graficos. Como veran sigo obsesionada con el mesh (tela de malla). Amo esta version de sweatshirt con capucha hecho de malla. Lo quiero usar con tops blancos y shorts de jean tambien. Por cierto mi camara estaba malograda en estas fotos por eso se ven borrosas, ya la arregle asi que todo bien.

En fin, lo que han estado esperando. Las ganadoras del concurso de She Inside son: Marie Clemence, Helena Dewitt y Megan Tam. Felicitaciones! Recibiran un correo pronto. Para el resto que concurso no me odien por que pronto posteare otro concurso icon smile Blue Jeans. Realmente me sorprendio la cantidad de entradas que tuvo el ultimo! Me encantaria que comenten mas ya que veo que muchos siguen mi blog icon wink Blue Jeans.

En fin que tengan un lindo lunes, ahora estare posteando seguido!

Today’s look is built around these hand-embroidered tights from bebaroque! The sandy tone of the ruffles, along with the crystal and pearl embellishments all reminded me of the sea. I felt that a pair of tights as beautiful as these ones were especially deserving of a special photo shoot so I’ve been saving them to wear on a day that I could make it over to Ocean Beach in San Francisco to take photos! The tights are made from a very high quality nylon that is super durable and warm and they did not catch or rip on anything at all. They matched perfectly with the Levi 501′s that I wore to the Lookbook.nu x Levi’s 501 Party in SF last night so I was able to get these photos taken before the party while I was in the city icon smile SEA More photos from the party will come later but I had such a fun time and was so happy to get to meet the Lookbook staff!!

The original color of these shorts is a medium blue, but I bleached them for a couple hours to get them to this very light blue. I decided to style the shorts with a simple white blouse to allow the tights to stand out. For jewelry, I wore this starfish cuff to match the theme of the sea, and then this pearl necklace from Chic Peek and crystal cross necklace from Love Stylize to match the embellishments in the tights.

Chic Peek is also giving one of my readers a free, one month membership which is worth $30, or basically one piece of jewelry of your choice! Chic Peek is a shopping membership website that offers its customers one piece of branded jewelry each month (including brands such as Wildfox and DV Italy). To enter this giveaway, follow the steps below. This giveaway will run for 10 days and will end on Monday, June 10th. Good luck!

Structured Glamour :: Sequin dress & BOSS Hugo Boss show

0c9c3 Structured Glamour 21 433x650 Structured Glamour :: Sequin dress & BOSS Hugo Boss show

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend so far!

We arrived at the show and before I knew it, I was ushered onto the red (actually black =) carpet.  A young woman greeted me at the beginning of the carpet and warmly said, “it’s your turn.”  I smiled, nodded, and struggled for a few seconds as my legs were delayed.  It was as though my mind was ready, but my legs did not want to move.  Luckily, my bottom half caught up in time and I made it across without fumbling or saying hi to the floor.

 :: BOSS Hugo Boss fashion show ::

Shanghai was the perfect setting to debut BOSS’ fall/winter 2013 fashion show.  Striking a harmonious yin and yang, the collection featured a balance of masculinity and femininity, displaying a range of structured suits and embellished dresses.  All of the pieces exude a common theme of strength and grace.

In the collection, power suits continue to reign supreme.  Rich burgundy leather and bold structured blazers styled over delicate sheer blouses swept down the runway.  The details on the collar, the exaggerated front panels, and the tailored fit added hints of modern elements to the classic suit design.

To balance the play on power of the structured suit shapes, beautiful intricate dresses danced down the runway.  It was the perfect marriage of robust hardwares and elegant drapes.

I squealed and was so happy to see the dress that I was wearing in the show!  This one is midnight blue and it glistened beautifully as it moved.

This was the dress that Chi-Ling Lin wore in the Shanghai Affairs mini movies.  I gained a deeper appreciation after seeing it in real life. The front has the shape of a shift dress but the back is truly a work of art.  The front shows so much restraint and as it turns to unveil the back, I saw it as a clean canvas to showcase the artwork on the back.

With lighting flashing on the runway, the show was indeed electrifying.  Full of lush autumn colors (burgundies, teals, cobalts, and grays), each piece painted a story of a confident and modern woman and man as she and he embraces life’s journey.  The dresses and suits sung perfect complementary melodies as it displayed the collection’s aura of strength and grace.

It was such an honor to be at the show.  MM, David, and I had so much fun!  Thank you so much for joining us on this journey.  We can’t get enough of Shanghai and plan to return soon!

Thank you so much for reading!
