Hello!!!! I have recently been asked by some of you where Sanguesita is. Honestly i don’t feel that i personally relate as much to her these days (you can say i am THE QUEEN of moodiness). After thinking about it, i realized that i missed drawing and let the pen guide me. And i came up with a Sanguesita 2.0. So here she is! I don’t want to promise that i will be doing a drawing a day, but i will try. A bit of dayly drawing discipline can’t hurt!  

I hope you like her :) 

Kisses

Hey!!! I am so happy to be sharing with you my first steps into building my first mini capsule collection. Going through this process really took me back to my university days. I realized that I had forgotten how exciting this is. It also made me realize that I am not sure about how I want to use the Sanguesita platform. For the last 2 years it has evolved in many different ways, which showed me that I am personally still in a “figuring-out” process.

At the end, what matters to me, is how much fun I am having, and how happy and excited this makes me feel. In this “episode” I am sharing some my drawing or sketching process. It is the most exciting part of my fashion journey. To me this is when your ideas become a reality. I always have so many designs having fun dancing in my little brain. I can always envision them but nothing beats putting them on paper.

This is when I figure out if the idea was strong enough as a look and as beautiful as I imagined. It is also the part where I refine it, and get deeper into the outfit’s detail. I then start coloring them in the fabrics I have seen or been inspired by. At that step I decide whether or not it really works for myself. Once I am done I usually find myself just starring at the sketches, which I want to grab and run to the fabric store with.

This is what I will doing today. Since it is Friday, which is the day off in Qatar, I have to wait until 4PM for the fabric stores to open. I want time to fly!!! It never does when you really need or want to ahaha. I will keep you posted on what I find!!

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Hey!!! I hope you had a super weekend the same way I did, full of food and happy people. When lunch time approached, I realized, that I again was in a casual and cozy mood. To fill this style craving, I decided to wear my boyfriend shirt. Please note that I didn’t grab an oversized shirt that has the look of a boyfriend shirt. I literarily stole my boyfriend's shirt. The one difference there is with an oversized shirt, is the length of the sleeves. I just love how I look like a zombie going for lunch. I made sure to make the look a bit girly by wearing floral printed shoes paired with a fuchsia bag. Since the color palette was soft, I preferred to choose a light color denim. The jeans raw edges added a bit of interest and texture to the look. It was also a way to get people’s to look all the way to the shoes.

What to remember when picking a look? Once you have figured out the mood you are in, try to translate it in style. To do so, think about color and texture that reflect it.

Bisous!!

Hey!!! I am so happy that i am getting closer to have my first pieces almost done. I have been experimenting and figuring out what i want and most importantly what can work. I haven't designed or done anything i have been trained to do during my university life for like 4 years. I needed to get the wheel going again. I hope the outcome will be as expected.

Back In Time

Hey!!! This post is really about going back in time as i am wearing a 70's inspired outfit, and didn't post for a few days. I have been feeling very weird for a few days, which ended up with the craziest migraine i have ever had. The pic really represents how i felt and wanted to cut off my head to get rid of the pain. Anyway, I thought i'd share that outfit because I absolutely love it. I got this flarred pants a few weeks ago and love the retro vibes it has. The flarred cut and the rough denim edge is just a match made in heaven. I decided to stay in the 70's vibe by pairing it with old school Stan Smith. When wearing such outfit i think it is important to keep in mind what you want people to look at, and what you them to remember. That's why i wore a simple black light knit top. I also think that balance is important. To equalize the look i tided a small scarf and styled it like a choker. It added to the retro vibe and the print was a nice touch to a plain outfit. It also made the look a bit more elegant or it would have been too casual. I don't like to leave the house feeling that my look isn't completely finished. I don't really have a rule for dressing up. I follow my guts and try to think of blance in terms of color, texture, print and shape. One of each spread in one outfit should be a winner look. The one secret i have, is to have one conducting element. If you realize i wear black in almost all these items and that's the conductor for this look. It ties it all up!!! 

Bisous!!
