Can I just say how lovely I spent my day dressing up my petite model friend and walking around the city shooting marc jacobs garments and chanel in the most transited street in all of downtown. My beautiful friend Tyra was excited to participate in such a video as it is her lifelong dream to be a cover girl model, and despite her petite figure she has the looks and attitude to carry that career to the end, so I was glad to help her realize her potential. This was definitely a good after school activity, what can I say, I'm a downtown enthusiast. It was funny to see all the tourists looking at our little video shoot and thinking it was a big deal and they stopped and looked for a moment or two, hey maybe one day they'll actually know who I am but until now my 5 minutes of fame were well appreciated.
Gotta love the city man.
Enjoy the vid!
After dealing with extreme weather conditions and having flown back home to Mexico ( which can't complain was much appreciated) I am glad to say, I am back in the beautiful NYC and Frankenstorm has been well left in the past. Little by little you can see New yorkers returning to their crazy lives.
This sunday I spent it walking the streets of soho along with thousands just eager to catch some fresh air after being stuck in their homes for well over a week. So here I post a video of my wonderful day with some friends that turned into a little soiree in my rooftop. Enjoy

I recently moved to the big apple in pursuit of happiness.. or just a really good job in the arts, and although my separation anxiety from Paris has been decreasing I won't lie and say Paris is not on my mind. Here I leave you with some videos and pictures I made of my experience in Paris Au Revoir
It was such an honor to attend the IFB conference. To see the people behind so many blogs I follow and adore was amazing and the networking opportunities were just better than good. I got to see the faces behind some blogs like Garypeppervintage, style&pepper, FashionIndie, IspyDIY among many. I can't lie and say I wasn't a bit intimidated because I just recently started my blog and to be honest I am no expert in the art of blogging, but they gave great advice as to how to create your own niche and market yourself appropriately. What I came to terms with is that I don't just want to be another lifestyle, I want to combine my love of film and fashion and do documentaries of fashion style and not focus the blog on myself but of all the fashion I see and experiment in this wonderful city of New York. So please do enjoy this video I made of the conference. Bisous!
I knew I wanted to try something different for my Fashion school's first assignment and well this seemed like a great idea but I never thought it could actually come across well in a picture and .. I never thought there would be a volunteer waiting to have their eyebrows filled with glue and aluminum until my best friend did. We stood there for half an hour trying to glue the stupid little pieces of aluminum into her bushy eyebrows. For the second part of the project I wanted to try something more 80's meets studio 54 look with a theme more focused on the fashion aspect. It was a really tough yet succesful day.. at least I think so ! Ps- I made a little video of the second part of the project ENJOY.
There are few places in the city where one can find Mexico's essence at its finest and I believe this little part of Mexico city called Coyoacán qualifies as one of them. Walking down the streets of this former village one can feel stuck in time with brick houses full of bright colors, little markets displaying traditional mexican garments, and handcrafted jewelry. I simply love all the great things you can find out there.. and for all the fashion freaks out there who want to find unique mexican handmade pieces, I then truly recommend paying a visit to this historic part of the city.
For this little excursion I opted for a colorful maxi dress, Jean Jcrew shirt ( my dad's I might add) and bright pink Jcrew straw shoes.

Hola a todos! So, I have been in the beautiful capital of Mexico for two weeks now taking a fashion design course. I really have been enjoying myself learning about fashion design and I have been trying to get an internship down here (funny story). So basically I typed in google " address of Conde Nast Latin America" , I found it , wrote it down and drove down there, I just thought do it know before you think twice. I got there and barged into the offices of Conde Nast Latin America and asked the receptionist if I could go and talk to someone in the little magazine called Vogue Mexico(no biggie). The receptionist almost laughed at my face and asked and who are you? I told her my life's story trembling and with all the nerves in the world. She told me basically no you can't go up but she did give me an email to send my resume to, so I sent some pictures and sketches and wrote down my name and number. To think I would get a call was stupid of my part, so like any desperate fashionista I drove down there again and literally invented a story that the email she gave me was wrong and if I could speak to anyone in Vogue Mexico.. I begged for about 5 minutes until she gave me a badge to go in!!! I wanted to die. I had a badge on my clothes that said VOGUE MEXICO. I wanted to take a picture but there was people around and I didn't want to seem desperate ( Although I am). So, I got to the offices and begged the receptionist to speak to someone she was mmm the opposite of nice, but after a couple of minutes I got the number of the head of Human Resources, she told me to send my resume (again) and now I'm just waiting its been a couple of days now... I basically humiliated myself just a tad but until I get to be amongst Fashion Royalty I will keep being persistent. :)
