Stripped jumpsuit

Hi there! As I stated before, I’m trying to be less shy in front of the camera. So here you have another post with me as a model, I hope you like the photos! 🙂 Those who know me know that I prefer summer rather than winter, despite Taiwan’s summer can be very hot, humid and sweaty. Now it’s October and the weather is changing very fast, hot one day and rainy for a whole week. One of these summerish days, feeling this good weather might not last long, I decided to wear a jumpsuit. It’s easy to style and a very comfortable option!

This blue and white stripped jumpsuit is from Zara, it’s loose but tight at the waist so, along with the vertical stripes, favors the silhouette. The back is what I love the most of it! I combined it with brown high heeled sandals from H&M, very easy to wear thanks to the wide heel.

As for the complements, the white sunglasses are from Forever 21, big and perfect for summer looks. I got the pearl earrings on my first trip to Philippines, in a small island near Cebu. And the Casio watch is a gift.

I want to thank my hubby for taking these photos! We saw this graffiti wall near Boven and we both thought it would be a great contrast with the stripes of the jumpsuit. I really like walking around that area, there is always something new to discover!

Photo shooting with Yaya

Yaya is a Taiwanese girl who works as a stylist in United States. We met in Taipei, when she was visiting her family. We decided to do a photo shooting together and she is an excellent model! Her style is very urban and loud, so we thought it would be a great contrast with the Songshan Cultural Park.

For the first set of photos, she was wearing a black leather jacket, pink cropped top, furry white high waisted shorts, sheer socks with flowers and wooden platform studded black shoes. Her complements were a bracelet and mirror sunglasses.

If you want to know more about Yaya’s styling work, you can check her Instagram.

CECI A/W 17

A few days ago, CECI celebrated the launch party for the Autumn Winter 17 collection, which I had the pleasure to attend. Cecilia Chang is the apparel and jewelry designer behind the brand, founded in New York in 2014.

The event was celebrated at the showroom, in the center of Taipei, and it was a blast! They were very nice, explaining the idea behind each piece and helping people to try any garment they desired.

About the collection, called “Stateless Vagabonds”, it follows an urban nomad attitude and it’s inspired by the Tuareg spirit. The pieces have different layers, volumes and lengths, lazy silhouettes that change with each movement you do. The collection uses fabrics like wool, for protection, and denim, to have a rough feeling; materials like faux fur to create volume, Using a limited palette of colors, mainly black, blue and grey, it’s possible to combine different garments creating a new outfit each time.

What do you think of this collection? You can check CECI’S official website to know more about the brand. CECI will present its Spring Summer 18 collection at the Taipei In Style fashion fair, can’t wait to see it!

Vicky

Some of you may remember Vicky from the Valentine’s Day post about stylish couples. She was with her boyfriend Erick walking around the streets of the Zhongxiao Dunhua area, in Taipei, when we met. They are both a nice couple, wearing a similar style.

Vicky is wearing a brown sweater with three-quarter length sleeves, a long printed skirt combining white, mustard yellow, navy blue and black pattern, and black boots. Her complements are a grey cloche hat, small earrings, a black leather watch, a black leather belt, and a pale pink handbag. As you can see, her outfit is casual and relaxed, perfect for an afternoon shopping in the city.

Stylish couples: a Valentine’s day special

Today is Valentine’s Day! A romantic party very popular in Taiwan. How do you usually celebrate it? Do you have romantic plans with your special one? In today’s spirit, I want to share with you a few stylish couples that I have spotted in Taipei.

It’s quite common to see some couples dressing similar clothes, or wearing matching T-shirts (with messages like “I’m his” and “I’m hers” pointing to the left or to the right). The couples I’m featuring here  today are wearing different clothes but somehow their styles are in tune.

The first stylish couple are Amber and Mace. They were at the Songshan Cultural Park when I met them. As you see, both are wearing sunglasses, shirts, skirt/trousers by the knee, and their socks are well visible. Also, both are carrying backpacks.

The second stylish couple are Vicky and Erick. They were at the Zhongxiao Dunhua area when I met them. As you can appreciate, they are both wearing grey hats, each one different but similar. Their sweaters both have three-quarter length sleeves, and they wear long skirt/jeans.

The third stylish couple are Crystal and Stephen. Although they are from Hong Kong, I met them when they were also at the Songshan Cultural Park during their visit to Taipei. As you can see, they are both wearing round tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses, white shirts, and skirt/trousers by the knee. Their bags also have similar styles.

What do you think of this trend? Do you also wear similar clothes or matching outfits when you are with your special one?

In Spain you can find many stylish couples, wearing similar clothes or styles. But I think I’ve never seen a couple wearing exactly the same clothes or matching T-shirts (with messages like “I like him” and “I like her” pointing to the left or to the right). What about in your country?
