January 17, 2017

Be the change you want to see in the world. – Gandhi – When I was in 4th grade I was assigned the role of Marie Antoinette in a school recital about the French Revolution. Although it was one of the main characters I couldn’t really sympathize for her. Instead, I would for the revolutionaries…

LESSONS ON STYLE #24 – FIT vs SIZE

January 18, 2016

What size are you? Here’s my personal answer to this question:  “The one that flatters my body and makes me the Best of myself”. In modern society Size has become the thing most people pay attention to when it comes to buying clothes. The fashion industry has dragged individuals to believe that the smallest the…

LESSONS ON STYLE #22 – HOW TRAVELING INFLUENCE STYLE

December 20, 2015

Traveling is my biggest addiction. My passport is so full of stamps that it’s running out of space. I’ve traveled to something like 32 different countries and 179 different cities so far and each one of them has given me unforgettable memories.

LESSONS ON STYLE #21 – ABOUT STYLE AND RELATIONSHIPS

November 30, 2015

We’ve always been taught to dress to please others more than ourselves.

LESSONS ON STYLE #18 – DON’T FOLLOW TRENDS, MAKE THEM!

November 8, 2015

Modern Society has taught us to follow trends especially when it comes to fashion.  Some people believe that either they wear what everybody else does or they’ll become some kind of outsider. I couldn’t disagree more with that. I personally don’t like stereotypes of beauty. I like attitude, the way people move, what they think,…

LESSONS ON STYLE #17 – AUTHENTICITY

November 2, 2015

In existentialism, authenticity was considered the degree to which one is true to one’s own personality despite external pressures. To be authentic means to be truthful to your history, your passions, your feelings, your desires. It  takes the courage to stand out from the masses and dare being different. It takes the spirit to express…

LESSONS ON STYLE #16 – FIND YOUR ICONS

October 26, 2015

Pablo Picasso said: “Good artists copy, great artists steal” . I couldn’t agree more with him. All great artists and leaders have emulated someone else.  Emulating means taking inspiration from something, or someone, and then transforming it so it becomes a new thing. It’s a great thing to be curious about the life of successful…
