The weekend is here! After a stressful week, there is nothing better than a relaxing Saturday with a vanilla candle, a cup of tea and a variety of series to see. As during the week I have to dress my intern's uniform, I have to take advantage of the weekend to wear bolder clothes and my beloved high heels! And how I missed to paint my nails!!
How I missed this! Well, I didn´t write a new publication for a long time! You guys don´t know the madness that was my last month. Among deliver college papers, final exams, I had to fully concentrate in college. You know, right now I'm an intern at a community health center, so I had to work a little more and left me no time to blog (how I regret that). Not that I have plenty of time now, but at least I'll enjoy the weekend to update.
At the weekend I took the opportunity to relax a bit. And there is nothing better to relax than shopping! And just my luck, there was a Flea Market at Porto on Saturday. Of course I couldn´t resist and went there. And truth be told, I was curious to get to know the pieces from an online store called Tricirculo. I had a crush on one of their shoes and I was tempted to buy them, but I never buy shoes without first trying them on. When I finally found the "store" in the confusion of the Flea, the shoes I wanted were already sold out in my size. And it was a good thing, if it didn´t happen I wouldn´t even noticed these gorgeous shoes that I am completely in love! They are the perfect shoes, complete any look that I create and adjust wonderfully to my day. And they are the most comfortable shoes ever made! I am thinking of getting the sandal version!
The truth is that I love this collection from H&M. Just the fact that emerges from recycled materials and the goal of fashion become most sustainable is really admirable. It's a fresh collection that calls for the hot summer days.
I still couldn´t go to a H&M store to see the collection with my own eyes, but I intend to go very soon, I am madly in love with a few pieces!
And it came to an end another edition of Portugal Fashion. This was probably the day I enjoyed the most, I even had the company of some friends, including my usual blog photographer. After the fashion shows we went for the big closing party of Portugal Fashion produced by WeLove Events. I have to say it was a great way to be with my friends (I spend so little time with them) and enjoy the last hours of the event.
One of the things that I loved the most this day was the choice of color palette. As you may have noticed I have a tendency to darker colors, like black, blue and burgundy. Due to my preference, the collections of the 4th day pleased me greatly. The collections of Carlos Couto and the creative director of Lacoste, Felipe Oliveira Baptista were the ones that I liked the most. The way that they “break” the feminine silhouette with strategic cuts is superb. In a completely different style, but equally compelling was the collection of João Melo Costa. I need to have the coat of the first picture! I can say that the collection of Klar bored me. I think sincerely he wanted to innovate but failed. Some pieces even seemed unfinished. In a more commercial way, the Lion of Porches and Dielmar had many interesting pieces to be used in everyday life.
Here are the photos of the third day fashion shows of Portugal Fashion. I am madly in love with Diogo Miranda´s collection. It's the proof that Portugal also makes quality fashion and it should not be overlooked!
Get ready, here comes an huge post on the 2nd. day of Portugal Fashion! Personally! I am completely surrendered to the Katty Xiomara collection, so strong and feminine at the same time.
