Outfit - A-Line Skirt & Summertime


Claramente estoy flasheando verano - con lo lluvioso y frío que esta el día - pero visto que justo hoy estoy extrañando el verano, quise compartir estas fotos con ustedes que saque en diciembre del año pasado (ahora mi pelo ya dejo de estar rojo, esta de una especie de marrón claro anaranjado).
Este finde largo tengo planeado aprovechar el tiempo libre para filmar un video (va a ser un DIY), cosa que vengo postergando desde hace un buen tiempo (mas que nada por vergüenza pero también por falta de tiempo jaja). Después de eso tengo dos DIY's mas planeados, uno mas simple y otro un poco mas complicado, así que eso es lo que van a ver en este blog dentro de unas semanas! :)
Estoy usando: Pollera -  Vintage, Musculosa - H&M, Zapatos - Regalo, Collar - Artesanos

// Here in Argentina we are very far from summer (today is a rainy, cold day) but since I am just missing summer, I wanted to share this pictures with you today, which I took last summer. My hair is not hot pink anymore, it is some kind of redish-brown color. 
This long weekend I am planing on filming a DIY video (which I have been postponing for a very long time - mostly because I have been a little afraid to do it and also because I didn't have the time). There are also two more DIY's coming, so this is what you will be seeing in this blog for the next couple of weeks! :) I am wearing: Skirt - Vintage, Shirt - H&M, Shoes - Gifted, Necklace - flea market

Tavi is my Queen

“I think the question of what makes a strong female character often goes misinterpreted, and instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot, like a Catwoman type, or she plays her sexuality up a lot, and it’s seen as power. But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female. They’re completely flat, and they’re basically cardboard characters. The problem with this is that then people expect women to be that easy to understand, and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple, when, in actuality, women are complicated, women are multifaceted — not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy, and women happen to be people." - Tavi Gevinson 
“I realized recently that when we think about personal identity, when we imagine ourselves, we picture ourselves from the outside. You see your face and your body through the world’s eyes instead of what to me is a more accurate representation of who you are, and that’s the world through your eyes. […] When I feel purely a set of eyes I’m at my happiest.”

I should actually be reading for university right now, but instead I find myself browsing through one my favorite websites: Rookie Mag.
Even if this online magazine, founded by writer, magazine editor, actress and singer Tavi Gevinson (17!) is supposed to be for young teenagers, I feel very touched by its content. The layout is beautiful, the articles are interesting and often very deep and the images are incredibly inspiring. I think I have been following Tavi Gevinson since her early beginnings at her blog when she was only about eleven years old, and she has been a huge inspiration and role model for myself (which is an odd thing to say, considering she is three years younger than me, but she has achieved so much already!). I think she addresses a lot of subjects our generation is dealing with right now, specially young women.
Anyways, I should really get back to my university readings now, so excuse me that I won't be able to translate this into spanish.
Les deseo una linda semana!

Día de los muertos



I know, there are still a few months left before October, but I still wanted to share this picture with you, which was inspired by the mexican Day of the Dead skulls. Avery good friend and talented photographer took it some time ago, (when my hair was still very short) and I really like the result. Anyways, I hope you had a nice weekend!

//Ya se, falta todavía para octubre, pero igual quería compartir con ustedes esta foto inspirada en las calaveras del Día de los muertos en Mexico. Una buena amiga (e increíble fotógrafa) la saco hace un tiempo, cuando mi pelo todavía estaba corto, y la verdad que me encanto el resultado.

Fuera de eso quería compartir con ustedes una campaña que empezó hace poco y me pareció muy interesante: Se trata de un intento de despertar conciencia acerca del abuso (verbal) callejero sobre las mujeres en Argentina. Yo creo que es un tema que todas vivimos a diario, y aunque esta campaña no este realmente ofreciendo soluciones concretas al problema (que serian muy complejas), me parece importante que se empiece a llamar la atención a este problema. En fin, acá les dejo el link.
Se que esto no tiene nada que ver con moda, pero siento que este son el tipo de cosas que vale la pena compartir.

Eso es todo, espero que hayan tenido un lindo fin de semana!

Current inspiration: Gerhard Richter


Beautiful paintings by german artist Gerhard Richter. I specially love his overpainted photographs. His works are currently a big inspiration for my personal collection for university (I study fashion design if you didn't know). I really enjoy the mix of different mediums in order to create interesting artwork. If you want to see more of him, I really recommend you to visit his website (http://gerhard-richter.com).

//Hermosas pinturas del artista alemán Gerhard Richter. En especial me gustan sus fotografias con óleos. Sus trabajos son una gran inspiración para mi colección personal de este año (estudio diseño de indumentaria). Me encanta el resultado que se obtiene cuando un artista mezcla diferentes medios. Si queres ver mas de sus obras (y realmente se los recomiendo), visiten su página (http://gerhard-richter.com)
