Chunky Platforms on a Rainy Day

howchunckyischuncky

Missy Elliot sang it loud and clear “I can’t stand the rain, against my window…” Remember? (Or maybe Im too old) Im sure Selena Gomez or another singer nowadays has some sort of rain lyrics, but pardon me Im from the era when Missy and Timbaland  made me dance on any rainy day (and still do)! So how do I brighten up these dull, grey, rainy days? Easy, I choose to NOT wear rain boots, or umbrellas! Why? Because I refuse to feel or look as crappy as the weather, but that’s just my personal view, I dont like rain boots because I feel anything but feminine with them, and umbrellas yes I think they can make an outfit cute, but holding them bothers me, and I always forget them wherever I go (which really annoys my hubby)! How can I not mention that my hair looks freezy cool under the rain:) So I wear my chunky platform Stella McCartney bootiesboyfriend denim, a basic white blouse, a black blazer and no umbrella, and I brave the rain:)

Si sois de la epoca de Missy Elliot, os acordaréis muy bien de cuando nos cantaba “I can’t stand the rain, against my window…” Y así empieza cada día lluvioso para mi, con esta canción en mi mente, y con ganas de cambiar mi actidud, porque a quién le gustan los días grises y lluviosos? Para no caer victima del tiempo, lo que hago es poner el paraguas a un lado, y mis botas de lluvia pa fuera;) Me pongo mis botínes plataforma de Stella McCartney, y mis tejanos mas cómodos, dándole un toque chic con una blusa blanca y blazer negro! Y a pisar fuerte contra la lluvia;)! Que os parece?

Those of you who follow me on Instagram, might’ve noticed that I was in Saint Louis this past weekend for their Fashion WeekAlive Magazine (who by the way did an amazing job) invited me to attend Fashion Week, alongside other talented bloggers. What to expect when flying out to Saint Louis for Fashion Week right? I did do my research and check out the designers that would be showing, as well as bloggers who would be attending, and seeing the talent that was going to be there I decided to hop on the opportunity! It is always exciting to visit a new location, meet new people, and immerse yourself in it’s culture (can you tell I love traveling?) To my delightful surprise, Saks decided to have me co-host their Tess Giberson Fall Presentation event, and have a short Q&A with the talented and sweet Tess Giberson.

There was a moment right before the show, that Tess was giving me tips on how to take control over my stage freight, how cool is that? Tess Giberson giving me her inside professional tips? Somebody pinch me please! It goes without saying that her collection was breath taking, her minimalist aesthetic, structured knits, laid back style, and white on white looks made me feel right at home. It is not every day you get to meet successful artists such as her, and I couldn’t consider myself luckier. Take a look at her pieces, now try and tell me that Im not right;)! Is she or isn’t she amazing?

I won’t lie my closet isn’t full of scarves, but with there is a definite abundancy of shoes and bags due to impulse buying, which is why a scarf has to really wow me and be unique. What better way than an eye catching print and soft to the touch silk? When I first heard of Anna Coroneo through a mutual friend in NYC, I was drawn by her international background, Australian with Greek origins, but living between London and New York, sounds like a perfect mix for a creative mind and talented illustrator, and so she is! On her site you can see how much talent this girl has with a varied selection of scarves, home goods, and illustrations! Ever since I got my hands on this Kiss silk scarf, it travels with me wherever I go, and it adds that instant color and fun to my look. A scarf full of Kisses, can you think of a better accessory to welcome Fall? Find it in your favorite colour, check it out on Bloomingdale’s.
