Fashion is all about reinvention. If you see it from a certain point of view everything is timeless when it comes to fashion. Some ideas are fads which come and go quicker than you can spell cat. Most of them are very dramatic and controversial. Another way to freshen up an idea it’s by twisting it into something innovative. It’s like when you decide to redecorate your house but have no budget whatsoever to do so. It’s time to get creative and to start letting your imagination run wild in order for you to turn simple pieces into a great touch to that plain wall. That’s how designers feel when they have an old idea and want to bring it all back. It is not just about bringing back an old hit; it’s about bringing it better than ever.
Platforms and wedges have become a classic look for women all ages. They wear them everywhere since they are so versatile. You can have a casual look with jeans or a massive fashion forward outfit. All of these under the same statement: platforms. Last season the famous platform was reinvented into the adaptation of flatforms. It is exactly how the name sounds: a flat platform. It looks edgy and it’s even more comfortable for you. From Jeffrey Campbell to Chanel design houses started adapting this new silhouette into their designs.
Spring and summer are all about being comfortable and simple. We always want to still look good and for those of us that like looking flawless even at the beach well let me tell you we finally have an answer. Sometimes flip flops don’t cut it. Flatforms are fashion-forward, trendy, comfortable and have that easiness to them and effortless look. Less is more and more so if you have that one simplistic piece that can make your whole outfit.

Muchas son cabezas de familia, el pilar del hogar. Madres, abuelas, hijas, nietas… Las mujeres son fuente de vida y eso es motivo de fiesta. Este domingo, que celebramos el Día de las Madres queremos regalarles lo mejor. Es por esto, que en honor a aquellos que decidieron dejar las compras de regalo para lo último, he preparado una lista de varias opciones de obsequios disponbles en Novus.
Comodidad: No se trata de regalar por regalar; queremos que mamá disfrute su obsequio y qué mejor que un par de sandalias cómodas que pueda usar a diario y que a la vez, que la hagan lucir a la moda.
Belleza: Unas son más sencillas que otras, pero a todas les gusta verse bonita. Identifica su estilo y obséquiale un hermoso collar, una pulsera llamativa que pueda usar para una actividad formal o que le dé el toque elegante a cualquier conjunto sencillo y unos aretes que hagan juego.
Elegancia y funcionalidad: Un cómodo bolso de diario, una cartera para salir o una wallet o un monedero. Todas estas son opciones prácticas que mamá apreciará y si la sabes escoger bien, no será un regalo más, si no algo que ella verdaderamente usará.
Actividad y seguridad: Hay madres que se la pasan todo el día para arriba y para abajo, son modernas, coquetas, les gusta verse bonitas, pero como la mía, por razones de salud, ya empiezan a bajarse de la altura de las plataformas y prefieren zapatos más seguros y flexibles que no hagan sufrir sus pies.
Espero que estas alternativas hayan sido de mucha ayuda. ¿Cuál de todas prefieren regalar a mamá?
¡Que pasen un lindo domingo de madres!
What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you see the word power? We usually think about super heroes and all their special abilities to do the impossible. If we mix that with the female figure you instantly have Wonder Woman with super stamina and flying powers that could take here anywhere in seconds. Well, since she’s not your usual lady Puerto Rican designer Stella Nolasco didn’t think this would be a good blend so she chose to present her Autumn/ Winter 2012 collection representing beauty as the ultimate power. If you come to think about it beauty represents glamour and gorgeousness which equals strength that turns into power. She presented her collection “Beauty is My Power” at the Ritz Carlton Hotel & Casino.
Her inspiration went from mythical characters that represented what beauty could attain to far away princesses in their kingdoms waiting for Prince Charmin to cross their path. After the exquisite cocktail the main doors opened to the public. With no ordinary catwalk the room was decorated in hand made chairs floating in the center and precious chandeliers. The runway had an oval shape that rounded the entire room while in the middle you had the feeling of a castle bundled with all its fragments. Chairs, garden ornaments, jewelry boxes where among the article that you could regard and make your own little story of what the designer was going to show you and her story of beauty.
Once the models started coming out in long extravagant gowns you could see all the details from the garments to the hair to the accessories each one of them was transmitted. All the models came out bearing different variations of braided hairstyles which was very ancient and royal like. On top of those exquisite braided styles most of them had delicate and refined head pieces with jewels and stones. Also most of them hadHollywoodglamorous glasses. The garments were very womanly and represented strength in all its potential. Some of the models walked down the runway with words on their bodies painted on with red lipstick saying ‘I Love Stella’. The entire collection had a variety of color but most of all they were all very feminine ensembles in different styles. The designer had her big finale with a wedding gown and a groom. The story related completely until the happy ending. I am a true believer in happy fairytale endings and she brought it all to the table.
The shoes can be found at La Favorita stores.
