Summer outfit

Spain. The place where I've spent my summers for the past.....16 years of my life.
I love it, I love the people there, I love the fashion, I love the lifestyle, I love the.....well, you get the point.

Today as I was reminiscing about this past summer spent in my ancestral land I remembered all the wonderful, summery outfits I had put together. There is inspiration all around, thus, I was never caught wearing the same thing twice. You just can't repeat a "tenue".... you are constantly receiving such good vibes and grasping inspiration from the landscapes, the cities, "la gente"....that you are always brainstorming and coming up with new things to wear. Easily, too!

Keep in mind Spain is also a place of merriment. There are always parties being thrown, events occuring, and major chances to dress up; something I love to do.

So here is an outfit I wore this past summer in Galicia, going out for a par-tay.

Dress/Vestido/Robe: gift
Jacket/Chaqueta/veste: gift from grandma
Earrings/Pendientes/Boucles d'oreilles: Chanel
Shoes/Zapatos/Chaussures: Liz Clairborne

Above, Liz Clairborne wedges.

Note: From my past Liz Clairborne shoe purchases, I've come to learn that, there is simply no comparison when it comes to feet comfort in Liz Clairborne shoes. Whether it's her heels, wedges, flats...the comfort level is MAXIMUM. I've danced for 4 hours in one of my Liz heels, and at the end of the night, I felt that I could still have danced some 4 hours more in her wonderful shoes. So if you're looking into buying some beautiful shoes and want comfort assured; don't think about it twice and invest in some beautiful and timeless LC shoewear.

Grandma and I. Mi abuela y yo. Ma grandmere et moi. She is where I get my style genes from. From her, I get my "woeful" shopaholic tendencies from. We borrow eachother's clothes, shop till we drop together, and have "serious" fashion talks.
(Seriously, I have the most modern, well-dressed grandmother in the UNIVERSE!)

SPANISH: España. El pais donde he pasado mis ultimos 16 veranos de vida. Amo el pais, amo la gente, amo el estilo de vida....bueno, ya os dais cuenta...amo todo que tenga que ver con mi España querida del almaaaaa. Hoy al recordarme de los bonitos momentos pasados este verano en mi pais ancestral, tambien me acorde de todos los conjuntos de ropa que habia creado. Es que, es imposible repetir conjunto de ropa cuando en tu entorno alla tanta fuente de inspiracion! Las preciosas vistas, maravillosas ciudades, tanta gente estilosa....

Ademas de eso, España es un sitio donde siempre hay algun "fiestorro" occuriendo, y con esto, una escusa magnifica para una ponerse "toa" guapaa!
Aqui, una foto de este pasado verano en Galicia, antes de acudir a una fiesta.

FRENCH: L'Espagne. Le pays où j'ai passé les derniers 16 étés de ma vie. J'aime le pays, j'aime le gente, j'aime l'estile de vie. Aujourd'hui, pendant que je me rappelais cet été passé en Espagne, je me suis également rappelé des toutes mes tenues. C'etait vraiment impossible de répéter une tenue, Il y a d'inspiration pour tous!! Les beaux paysages, les villes merveilleuses....

Aussi, l'Espagne a beaucoup des fetes. Elle offre beaucoup d'événements, qui j'aime parce-que je me peux habillé!

En cette photo je suis dans Galicia, je suis allé à un "boom."

shoe obsession

Finally feeling better. After two days of much dedicated bedrest, i had time to relax, recuperate, and...even plan out future outfits, haha.

Today I went to the doctor (I woke up with a really bad asthma attack) and to my luck it was a beautiful day. The sun was on my side. I felt like the past week the weather had finally made an official decision to indefinitely transfer to autumn from summer weather; but today mother nature felt like having one last good day. And on the first day of fall too, am I right?

Anyway, after the doctor's visit we placed my prescriptions at the pharmacy, and with some time to spare whilst the medicines were being prepared... we had some time to check out stores.

I must confess, today I fell in platonic love with various key fall clothing items. A beautiful Ralph Lauren cashmere wrap, wide-legged jeans galore, comfy brown leather boots with a bit of a heel, and my latest achilles heel: SHOES. In this case, booties. The most acclaimed fall shoe of '08.

My feet were just begging for me to try some on. And I just couldn't deny them the pleasure.

Above, Steve Madden booties.

jacket/chaquetita/pullover: dolled up
high waisted wide leg trousers/pantalones tiro alto/ pantalons: ingredients
shirt/camiseta/blouse: bought in london
shoes in hand(mine)/mis bailarinas(en mano)/mes chaussures(dans ma mans): spain

earrings/pendientes/boucles d'oreilles: chanel

SPANISH: Mi ultima obsession: ZAPATOS!! Y para ser mas especifica, los botines; el zapato mas popular de este otono 2008. Y es que, no me extrana que sea el zapato mas popular, es que son moniiiiisimos!

FRENCH: Mon amour de la mode actuallement sont les chaussures!

sick tuesday

Hello blogworld! I guess I should start by introducing myself and my intentions for this blog.

I'm Angela, a sixteen year old new yorker who is obsessed with fashion, learning, and writing. I've been an avid fashion-blog reader for about 2 years now, and its taken me this long to actually get it together to create my own blog. Late bloomer, anyone?

Since I was about six years young, (this according to my mother) I always had a fondness for fashion.

There are pictures to prove this, I assure you...

I always loved accessorizing and piling on chunky necklaces, trying on my mom's huge heels on my tiny size 2 feet, painting my little lips with mommy's Chanel lipstick (i learned from her that an expensive purchase shall be made when it is towards something essential; something you know you will be using.)

I kind of forgot about fashion as I was going through my akward middle school phases, and as I became obsessed with those horribly cute famous tween lines such as limited 2 and even mk&a's own walmart line. (i only wish that know i had the economic funds to purchase something from their current line, The Row.)

Yet the summer before beginnning high school my love for fashion and dressing up emerged after a much hidden existence. Since then fashion has always had a deep rooted position in my heart.

This blog is intended to document my daily duds, share my newest adquisitions, stores i like, what inspires me... etcetera!

Being that I am bilingual (my family's from Spain; we travel there every summer for 2 months and that's had a deep impact on who I am today, and heck, even how I dress...European fashion is so amazing) So I really would love to try and have this blog be in Spanish as well. Aside from this, I have an immense passion for the french language. This being my fifth year in French, I will try to even (this might be a stretch) self-translate my blogs to french.

So since today I am sick with a sinus infection, rolled up in my favorite hello kitty fleece blanket, (is this embarassing or what...) with no picture to post, I am just going to post an outfit from this summer which I wore to go out one day in Spain.

Dress/vestido/robe: gift from grandma
jacket/chaquetita/pull-over: tracy m
belt/cinturon/ceinture: grandma's
bracelets/pulseras/braceletes: charlotte rousse, self made
ring/anillo/?: gift
earrings/pendientes/boucles d'oreilles: chanel
kitten heels/tacones/chaussures: liz clairborne

SPANISH: Hola a todo el mundo "bloggero!" Me llamo Angela y soy una fiel amante a todo lo que tenga que ver con el mundo de la moda. Desde que era una peque (y esto, segun mi madre) siempre fui muy coqueta en cuanto tenia que vestirme. Me encantaba pintarme los labios, ponerme los tacones (entonces para mi, gigantescos) de mi madre, y ponerme un monton de collares para terminar mi "look" un tanto muy juvenil, jaja.

Principalmente, he creado este blog para poder documentar mi vestimienta a diario, ensenar lo que me inspira, etc.

Hoy, como estoy malilla con sinusitis, (ainss, que penuriiiaaa!!) pues os enseno una foto de este pasado verano en Espana.


FRENCH: Bonjour a tout le monde "blogger"! Je m'appelle Angela et je suis une fille qui adore beacoup la mode.

puisque j'étais petit j'aimé la mode. J'ai créé ce blog afin de montre mes inspirations, mes vetements, etc.
Pour la raison qui aujourd'hui je suis un peu malade avec sinusits, je vous montrez un photo de cet été quand j'étais en Espagne.
