Viva Mexico!

September is a month of celebration for all Mexicans.
We get very patriotic and love dressing to celebrate independence day, the downside is that sometimes we do not know how to combine the essence of the holidays with our daily looks and then
end up wearing the national football team shirt or wear the flag colors, which normally make us look as if we're wearing a costume.
There is nothing wrong with using typical pieces, face painting, wacky hairstyles and handcrafted pieces, but sometimes we are not in the mood for much production and only want to include typical Mexican things in our daily outfits to mix tradition with contemporary and achieved a very cool look.
 
Septiembre es un mes de fiesta para todos los mexicanos.
Nos ponemos muy patrióticos y nos encanta vestirnos para celebrar el día de la independencia. Lo malo es que a veces no sabemos como combinar la esencia de las festividades con nuestros looks diarios. Creo que eso pasa en todos los países; o todos terminan usando la playera del equipo de futbol nacional o se visten de los colores de la bandera, lo que hace que en lugar de cool o sofisticados parezca que estamos usando un disfraz.
No hay nada de malo en usar piezas típicas, pintura, peinados estrambóticos y piezas artesanales, pero hay veces que no estamos de humor para tanta producción, por lo que queremos incluir cosas típicas mexicanas en nuestros outfits diarios.
Así mezclamos la tradición con lo contemporáneo y logramos un look muy cool.
¡Dilo con una playera!
Fue básicamente el eslogan del 2014, así que por que no poner todo nuestro espíritu en una playera graciosa. Vi esta y me fascino esta genial!
¿No les encanta la bolsa? A mi sí. Las venden en muchísimos mercaditos y creo que le dan un toque étnico muy cool a todo.
 
Say it with a shirt!
Was 2014's slogan, so why not wearing a cute funny shirt to portrait the spirit!
Don't you love the wicker bag? You can find them in tons of markets across the country and they are perfect to give your look an ethnic vibe.
 
 
México es famoso por sus piezas de plata, de hecho es uno de los mayores productores a nivel mundial, reconocido por su calidad.
Mi lugar favorito para comprar este tipo de joyería es un pequeño pueblito llamado Taxco en Guerrero. Las blusas bordadas también me fascinan, así que una manera linda de combinar ambas cosas podría ser con unos pantalones de mezclilla o unos shorts con sandalias de tacón y un satchel.
 
Mexico is famous for its silver pieces, in fact it is one of the largest producers in the world, renowned for its quality.
My favorite place to buy this type of jewelry place is a small town called Taxco in the state of Guerrero. The embroidered blouses also fascinate me, so a nice way to combine both could be with some jeans or shorts with high heel sandals and  asatchel....
 
 
 
La joyería es definitivamente unas de las cosas más fáciles de combinar y las calaveras decoradas son adoradas en todo el mundo no solo en la moda sino como preciados souvenirs y alusiones a nuestra cultura, por lo tanto no dudes en ponerte colorido y optar por usar muchas de ellas en estas fiestas.
 
Jewelry is definitely one of the easiest things to combine and skulls decorated are worshiped throughout the world not only in fashion but as cherished souvenirs and allusions to our culture, so do not hesitate, get colorful and opt to use many of them this holiday season.
 
Si tienes cocteles o eventos formales puedes aprovechar para usar rojo, blanco o verde... tenemos mucha suerte de tener una bandera con colores siempre en tendencia.

Beauty: Devilish Woman



"Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody"- Mark Twain

Altough I agree with Mark Twain, being always in the light can be a bit boring. 
Changing into a little more edgy allure is always refreshing and quite sexy, so today... To liberate us from the weeks stress I want to share with you guys a very classy yet dearing look to go out after nine to five or keep it cool at a cocktail. 
There are no restrictions, as long as you keep the outfit minimalistic, the strong bold lips and flirty eyes will certainly attract more then one dark knight by themselves.

Kohl Liner/Givenchy
Waterproof Mascara/ Givenchy
Lipstick/ MAC Cosmetics

Now, it's important to keep all strokes neat. Line your lips with concealer so that it doesn't spread later on, looks evenly smooth and makes strong color pop out. 
Then, draw an audacious cat eye to achieve the visual symmetry needed for the most perfect mistery. 
Draw a fine line over your lashes root, than nake a line a few milimeters before the edge of the eye. Afterwards draw another line ending at the edge to create a triangle. To finish, fill the triangle and keep drawing from that angle to the lacrimal. 
May the wings of your eyeliner be always even.
Try as many times as you need to achieve it.
PRESTO! 
There you have an easy and quick devilish girl look.
Have fun...! 


XOXO, RWPF

The Future is Gold

"The past can be beautiful, a memory, a dream, but it’s no place to live.  And now it’s time, the only way out, is up. It’s not heaven. It’s a new world. The future is gold"

 J'adore Dior was born as a way for John Galliano to leave his mark in Christian's maison.
His very first collection was inspired by the masai women, who usually wear dozens of golden necklaces as ornament to elongate their necks, which then served as guide line to create the magnificent bottle. The name?
Well, this design genius couldn't pronúnciate a word in french at the time of his early beginnings at Dior, but J'adore! He adored this, and that and everything involving the creative process of something new. This way, a great designer managed to leave his hidden print in something ever iconic, that even though he had to abruptly and scandalously leave, prevails.
That is one of the main reasons why I like this perfume so much, not only because of it's scent and appealing tv spots picturing wonderful eleggant women, but because of the yuxtaposition between the simplicity of it's bottle to the story behind it.
This year J'adore has a new and more powerful meaning. The Future Is GOLDEN.
Words we should all live by every day,don't you think?

Moonshine Jungle


"You know you look even better than the way you did the night before
And the moment that you kissed my lips you know I started to feel wonderful
It's something incredible, there's sex in your chemicals
oh,
let's go!
You're the best way I know to escape the extraordinary
This world ain't for you, and I know for damn sure this world ain't for me
Lift off and say goodbye
Just let your fire set me free
Ohhh...
Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time.
I know, I was with you last night but it feels like it's been so long
And everybody that's around they know that im not myself when you are gone
It's good to see you again, good to see you again...
On top of the world!
Is where I stand when you're back in my life
Life's not so bad when you're way up this high
Everything is alright, everything is alright
Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time..

I never really go crazy... But when I do, I evoke my inner rockstar.
 
I've never been t-shirt obsessed.
I don't tend to buy one at every place I visit even though I love it there, however there's a very cool factor about concert shirts that we can't deny.
People go out of the arena after 2 hours of great exhilaration music and agree to buy one with the idea of feeling that way every time they wear them.
The saddest part is, that most of the time they just end up wearing them as PJ's on a lazy sunday morning while browsing the internet. (With a roocker heart and soul no doubt)
So the appropiate question is... HOW DO YOU STYLE A CONCERT SHIRT?
Vintage rock shirts made a HUGE comeback this year as part of the high/low trend.
So, I did not even hesitate when I saw this one at the Moonshine Jungle Tour from BRUNO MARS... Yes, it was THAT amazing!
What you need to keep in mind with t-shirts is that in order to make themlook cool, you have to get rid of the lazy-sunday-comfy-in-my-sweatpants idea.
Take a moment to think about your most elegant pieces, and then mix them with this type of shirts.
Think about stilettos, leather pants and a Gun's n' Roses crop top. Or an Aerosmith T with a White lace skirt.
Options are infinite, you just have to think about things on the other side of the spectrum. 
Yellow, groovy and cool I could only think in this black leather pencil skirt to complement the yuxtaposition between rocker and classy, which in my opinión, matched pretty well.
The shirt was already bright enough, reason why it wouldn't really matter that my shoes where all red and popping creating balance between the ruby details on the top as well.
Would a little animal print be too much?
PLEASE, we are talking about the Moonshine JUNGLE tour, a little wildness was more than necessary!
To give the finishing touches of rocker glam, I decided to go golden with a fabulous chocker, 6 knucklerings and a pair of sunnies.
What do you guy's think, is it cool enough?

Classic

There are very few things more iconic than a classic tweed piece...

Some view it as an itchy, stuffy, stodgy fabric only worn by old men and college professors, until Coco Chanel came along and inspired by her love, the Duke of Westminster, turned it into something legendary.
Beginning in 1924 this women transformed the formely called "obsolete cloth" in the most desired weave to use in the making of everything from dresses and now world famous jackets, to elegant sportswear. Now we cherish it as a timeless basic, perfect in every color and garnment and worn in the most casual and couture events.
I've worn this skirt in tons of formal looks; with peplums and white shirt a la devil wears prada, so I figured out that a denim shirt would be a fresh twist that could accordinlgy add to the entire ensamble the casual factor.
The thing about making this odd combinations of high/low and casual/elegant creates an effortless chic outfit in the blink of an eye.
It was the first time I wore this beauty on a daily bases and was super excited that I quickly took a pair of heels and bag to go eat my favourite mint icecream and enjoy an afternoon stroll at the park.
It was the perfect weekend.
