SO last night I got all dressed up ( I even wore my DIOR shoes ) to get to the fashion parade event .... held up at A really nice night club here in mexico city called RAGGA ... the event was filled with glamour ... huge celling to floor screens proyected .. each runway LOOK that was illuminated by flashes ..
ELSA BENITEZ here
(mexican top model she has modeled with Dolce & Gabbana , Oscar de la renta , Valentino .Victoria´s secret) etc......
the fashion show ...
with my bffs enjoying the event ... lots an lots of glamour I can assure you
I absolutely love this place ...... Not so big but no sooo small This elegant mall called ARCOS Bosques with a few selection of stores such as Marc Jacobs , PINK , Salvatore Ferragamo , A/X etc ... also has Movie theatres a variation of restaurants from argentinian to japanese ... and sadly one of the most elitist night clubs here in Mexico city called HYDE....
Sooooo .. yesterday I went to NOBU we did a reservation (even though there was a few people
when we arrived) And before I noticed All of the staff members including the chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa
are making you a reverence it makes you feel VIP (even though I am a vip LOL)
heres a picutre of NOBU
and if you ever go to NOBU I really dont recommend ordering Nigiri sushi because its overpriced
6 dolars the piece ... but in general it was delightful (it is one of a few restaurants in Mexico City with Michelin stars ) no wonder why its Carrie Bradshaws favorite place to dinner !!!!!
ANDY WARHOL ... and fashion .. vintage is the tendency right now .. and to BE HONEST 20´s 50´s sixties and eighties are all back and mixed up to create the new (but old ) fashion tendency ... starting from Marc Jacobs for instance .. WITH his particular GRUNGE iconic style that will be portrayed season after season ... to predict the NEW you gotta look into the past . and thats why i was watching Andy Warhol´s Poor Little Rich Girl film where you can almost smell the sixties allure .. I absolutely love it
and even though OP ART IS THE NEW POP ART I still love my Cambells t-shirt
WELL speaking of Saks Fifth today I visited the store .. to discover that they still had sales in the store
Its amazing how affordable it can get after an additional percentage .... so heres the thing
see through shirts and pieces in general are still the tendency ... so I decided to buy this Givenchy shirt it is a really strange fabric . but J´ADORE IT ...
SOOOO .. DIESEL .. what do you guys think about diesel .. because when it comes to quality some diesel stuff can be really sketchy ... but when I saw this calfskin messenger blue bag .. in some sale in Galeries Lafayette in downtown PARIS I absolutely loved it ( because i seriously think you have to have instant love at first sight before you buy something ).
WELL as you might know ......or not .. Saks Fifth Ave. opened the first store outside USA here in mexico city about 4 years ago and I personally love it .. even though they dont have a large variety of the mens department .. (its mostly ladies ) today I bought this architecture magazine Where they explain the new proyect in Polanco ( area located in mex city) called Plaza Carso
new location of museo soumaya
which SLIM (the world´s richest man (forbes mag ) ) is OWNER will include a theatre , 2 museums , a luxury hotel 2 or 3 .30 store office towers 2 apartment towers and a shopping MALL with a second Saks fifth ave. !!! yeay once again mexico city is turning into a world
fashion capital ..
almost done with it
ps. one of the museums is gonna be the new location of SOUMAYA (which by the way Soumaya the director and art curator of soumaya museum is SLIM´s
granddaughter.. OMG lovely grandpa is building her a whole new museum sooo sweet !!!!).
but anyway new museum is boosting world renowned artists as Van Gogh, Cezanne , Monet ,spanish paintor El Greco , MIRÓ, Degas..... and mexican paintor Diego Rivera ...etc
Im soooooo pissed off .... recently they anounced 2 days of Lady G ´s fame monster WORLD tour here in mexico city !! Guadalajara and Mexico City Banamex (mexican bank) opened a pre sell of the tickets at 12:01 am of the day all of the front row seats were bought ..WTF !! I mean 1 min after they got out ????
the official day came and I get up early in the morning to get to freaking ticketmaster(company) and what a horrible surprise I get .. Lady G totally sold out !!!!!!!!! they said tickets sold out in 30 min ?? FOR A CONCERT THATS NOT UNTIL MAY 5 2011??? wee know everybody loves her .. but I want my freaking ticket !!! damn it !!!!!
PS. guees ILL be looking foward to meet the people that sells them at outrageous prices !!!
Well these freaking days had been cloudy as shit ..... here in Mexico city .. which is not bad for me (actually I love rainny days make me feel in london ) ..so I decided to make an inventory about the summer shopping I did in Europe ... so first I first saw this Prada wallet mens-clutch in HARRODS it was 140 pounds (english currency) I loved it !!!!!!!!!! but i had one more stop in Europe and that was MILAN and I thought it is an Italian label sooooo maybe its cheaper there .... well
after visiting the first PRADA store in the whole world
heres a picture ....
I came to the conclusion that this mens-clutch
was 170 euros sooooooo... same price as in HARRODS
Im new at this ... and the only thing that comes to my mind is ... Rendez vous .. the morning meeting that we used to have every single morning at my little private highschool In Boston . I remember how my french teacher told us. never to be late at morning meeting or actually. (rendez- vous) as she said .. so rendez vous Is the word that comes to my mind when Im about to meet new people .....
heres a picture of me in front of the Eiffel tower
rendez-vous ..remember( You gotta make a tribute to the title)
so when I think of fashion I think of a beautiful way to express ourselves ... and many other words fill my mind .. Glamour , joie de vivre , reaction , first impressions , Love , hate , caprice (I just google "capricho" spanish in english and thats what I got LOL) ETC....
