Goldie’s Clothing Spring/Summer 2016

Hello lovelies! It’s been nearly a month since my last blog post.
And today I’m showing you the Goldie’s Clothing Spring Summer 2016 Collection, which was shot a month ago in a beautiful park in Barcelona. Yes, that is Barcelona, although it looks like it’s Mexico or any other exotic place.


All photos were taken by talented photographer and Instagram pal Patricia von Gray, and the whole collection is now available at Goldie’s Clothing website.

Mexican inspired garments, flared skirts, capri pants…Who’s ready for Summer?

Awkward Creepy Encounters

Today I start a new series of blog posts about awkward encounters with people that don’t understand my way of life and the way I dress. I’ve entitled them Awkward Creepy Encounters because that’s what I think they are. So get ready to see what I experience on a regular basis.

This just happened to me last Friday, after leaving work just in time to have lunch. I was on my way to a restaurant near my office when I saw a teenager with an adult woman who I suppose was her mother.
Teenager: “Look at her!” – and started laughing and tried to hide with no effort. The adult woman standing next to her stared at me and laughed.
Shortly after that, I asked them if they had any problem with me, with just a “No” as an answer. But they kept laughing, especially the teenager who didn’t even bother to hide it.
 I don’t like how you dress either but I don’t judge you for it nor say it out loud. How rude! – and I left.
Although sadly I am used to being constantly judged on the street by complete strangers, I couldn’t help but get mad at that episode.

Someone who doesn’t teach their kids to respect others’ appearance  clearly is not a good parent. How are we supposed to live in a society whose people laugh at others just by the way they dress, and even say those comments out loud?

I mean everyone has their own opinions about others, and we are constantly judged by the outside. But we should all be respectful and don’t say those nasty things. And what an example that a teen says those things in front of their parents and they don’t even bother to tell her that it is wrong to do so!

This is not the first time that I’ve been told or laughed at for who I am. And I don’t care about others’ opinions of me, but I just don’t understand why women have to tear other women down instead of just respect and empower each other.

I just wanted to write down this episode, and not all awkward creepy encounters are going to be negative. I’ve been approached by complete strangers to compliment me for my looks or even ask me about my style. 

Have a great start of the week and remember to be yourselves!

Today on the blog I share with you my last photoshoot of 2015. I did a collaboration with photographer Raquel Olivera in the centre of Barcelona, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. 
How is 2016 treating you all? For me it’s fine, let’s just say. 

When a new year starts, everyone makes some resolutions for the following 12 months. One of my goals for 2016 is to make my hair game stronger. I still need to practice more! Anyway I’m happy with my improvements in the last year. Soon I’ll write a blog post about some ways/tricks to get a vintage hairstyle.

My amazing boyfriend also posed for the shoot. He’s my best friend and partner in crime and the one that makes me smile every single day. I’m so lucky to be sharing my life with him: we have so many things in common!
I have other resolutions for this year, such as getting into shape and exercising more. I’ve been quite lazy lately. I also want to dream bigger in terms of my job. 2015 has been amazing for my professional career as a journalist, and I’d like it to get even better in 2016.

Autumn Vibes

Hello there lovelies!
November is nearly over, which means that Christmas and New Years Eve is just around the corner. Barcelona, my city, is experiencing colder weather lately, but last Saturday temperatures were perfect for a shoot with photographer Celina Dolgner in Parc de la Ciutadella. 
I am wearing the Pin Up Girl Clothing Birdie Dress with 3/4 sleeves, the perfect dress for this time of the year. Its sateen is very comfortable, and this 1950s inspired design fits all body types. I couldn’t be more in love with this dress, which I scored at a good price at one of their yard sales in California.

Oh, and here’s the coat I matched my dress with. The Shonna coat from Hell Bunny Clothing takes inspiration from the 1940s, and the color really suits my hair, don’t you think? I bought it at Audrey Stars Boutique during one of their sales – go check this shop out! -. The Hanalee shoes from B.A.I.T. Footwear are a vintage girl’s dream: they are now one of my favorite heels in my wardrobe! ❤ 
Have a great start of the week!
