My Desigual experience at the International Film Festival of San Sebastián


Hello from the beautiful city of San Sebastián!!

This weekend I’m having the great honor of being behind the scenes of the San Sebastián‘s International Film Festival, thanks to Desigual. The colorful brand, whose motto is to celebrate joy and life, sponsors the Youth Award, in which 200 students judge the movies and vote for the winner. This evening is going to take place the award ceremony and the closing gala, and I’ll be there to report everything!!

I also went to the showroom that Desigual set up in the Maria Cristina Hotel, which is famous for hosting international celebrities. I had the chance of building an outfit with the garments of the newest collection of the firm. 

I’m wearing a pair of jeans that I loved from the very first time I saw them. After trying on different tops, I had my second crush: this t-shirt from Desigual’s men collection. I never thought I would wear such an oversize garment… But when I saw myself wearing these two things together, I had no doubt. This was going to be the look! A perfect tip to make this kind of t-shirts a little bit edgier is to roll up the sleeves. And to glam up this tomboy look, I wore it with a crystal necklace from Zara, a silvered leather clutch from Gerard Darel and these colorful sandals from Uterqüe.
Besides watching fascinating movies, I went to the press conference of Hugh Jackman!! And I had the chance of seeing him in person!! He was hilarious and answered all kinds of questions related to his new movie, Prisoners, and his beloved character of Wolverine.
What do you guys think about the look? Have you ever worn a boy t-shirt? How would you combine it?

Stay tunned, I still have a lot more things to show you!

DIY Nail Art: Goodbye Summer!!

Hi everyone!
So this is going to be the first DIY of the week :) I'm resuming my beloved Nail Art and beauty tutorials!! I would love to make many more posts like this, but my nails are so weak... If I attempt to wear them a little bit long, they break and my hands end up looking awful. I've tried everything and I just can't help it! But the length my nails have right now is enough to wear most of the nail art designs. I want to encourage you guys to give a try to Nail Art. It's not as difficult as it seems!! And it could be more relaxing than a kundalini session and more addictive than a Candy Crush marathon!!!

The design I made was inspired by the end of the summer. I hope you guys like it!!

#MeetDaretoDIY Our DIYer meeting

Lee esto en Español
Last Friday I had the amazing privilege of starring an event at the Apple Store - Passeig de Gràcia, in Barcelona. It was a conference in which I had the chance of sharing with some of you guys the story that's behind this blog (my main blog ) and some of the things I've learnt with this experience.

I was so surprised to see that the reservations were full the day before. But it was even more amazing that a lot of people came in to listen, regardless the list of attendees. I've said this many times before, but this blog has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had. And without a doubt, this event was an amazing gift.

DIY Pollock Impulse dress: One of my very first DIYs and also one of my reader's favorites.

I thought it could be interesting for the attendees to bring in some of my DIYs, so they could see them and touch them. This way I explained a little bit how I came up with the ideas, and some details of the process. 
Skirt with Mexican embroideries (made of a tablecloth), DIY skirt with 400 daisies (hand sewn) , necklace made with a hot glue gunEthnic necklace inspired by Isabel Marant and clutch bag with a California car plate.

The easiest DIY dress EVER!!

This week I made a very easy DIY, which is prefect for sewing beginners. This is what I call "the easiest DIY dress in the world". Just sew a few straight lines, introduce an elastic band and, voilà! You can also add shoulder straps. Style it with a belt and it's ready to wear!

The hardest part will be to find a fabric you like. Lately I have a soft spot for upholstery fabrics, because they look great on skirts and dresses. And prints are usually much more creative!! Do you guys remember my newspaper print skirt? The best part of this dress is that you can also wear it as a high waist midi skirt. Hope you guys like the video :) You'll see that it couldn't be easier!

During the process I thought of making a maxi dress, but I'm afraid it would have been too much... What do you guys think?

Hope you guys liked it!!
