Summer look

El look de hoy recuerda bastante a los años 50-60 pero con un toque renovado. Lo que más destaca es la falda de ARAMAT en tejido de algodón con estampado de cerezas y fondo negro. 

ARAMAT es una firma de ropa 100% “made in Spain” creando una visión actual del estilo lady. La colección se inspira en los años 50 y 60, Jackie Kennedy o Audrey Hepburn.

El collar es de la diseñadora de complementos Sandra Palomar, tiene tienda online y varios puntos de venta en España.

La camiseta es de BLANCO, las sandalias de Uterqüe, el bolso de TERIA YABAR y las gafas de sol de Jimmy Choo.

Long Dress Look

Hello!! How’s your summer going? I imagine that many of you have started your holidays, at the beach, in the mountains or just around the city enjoying a few days off. Next weekend we go to the south of Spain for a few days, and I will post from there including some recommendations about places to visit.

Today’s look is very summer, as I said in a previous post, at this time of year I love wearing super comfortable jumpsuits and long dresses for their boho style, ideal for summer.

I rescued this dress from two seasons ago, bought at ZARA and every year different stores sell similar dresses, being a basic in every wardrobe. On this beige color dress it’s easy to match with any sandals or wedges.

Added accessories are a brown leather belt and a vintage ethnic bag, also recovered from long ago.

Silver Short Look

Hi!!! How was your weekend? It’s been a few days since I’ve made a post, since I’ve been on holiday. Those of you who follow me on social networks (@FriendlytMadrid) have already seen some photos of the trip, and very soon I’ll tell you more. :)

Today’s look is highlighted by these shorts by ZARA from last season. Initially, I thought I wouldn’t get much use from them since they are made of bright shiny leather, however, in reality they’re easy to match so easy to wear, even during the day.

A few days ago I visited Privilege Dental at Lorena Morlote, Calle Velázquez, 69 Madrid and had my teeth whitened. The treatment consisted of 35% hydrogen peroxide for 30 minutes with instant results. It’s safe for your teeth and gums but you may notice temporary sensitivity.

Dressing for a Ceremony

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?

We’re in the wedding season, with baptisms and first communions, and this past Saturday I attended the first communion of my nephew. Here is the look that I chose.

Being a daytime ceremony, the most appropriate outfit is a cocktail dress and in Spring, best to wear soft colors, pastel, white silver, and try to avoid black in daytime events and celebrations.

I wore this dress by Angel Schlesser that combines white and silver, sleeve to the elbow and straight but adapted to the body. You can rent this dress at dresseos.com

Silver sandals from Jimmy Choo, black sunglasses by Tom Ford, and silver handbag with pailletes from Yokana.

Ethnic Style Look

One of the Spring-Summer trends is ethnic style. We have already seen this trend with clothing, decoration, art. In fashion the key characteristics are intense colors, frayed fabrics and fringes. Often fabrics or materials from Africa and India.

Brazil in the spotlight

On the occasion of the upcoming FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, Encuentros Bazar organized a special event, Wednesday, May 28th at the Embassy of Brazil in Madrid.  This was second event we attended organized by Encuentros Bazar. The first was last month with designer Guillermina Baeza which we wrote about in an earlier post. 

The twentieth edition of the World Cup, will take place between June 12 and July 13, and will be the second time this sporting event takes place in Brazil.

We had the opportunity to talk with Ambassador Paulo César de Oliveira Campos about sports, tourism, fashion, and gastronomy, and his love for Madrid.

The ambassador wanted to emphasize that visitors to Brazil for the World Cup should be aware that Brazil is much more than Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Less well known places such as Praia de Pipa, Chapada Diamantina, San Miguel, Jericocoara and Trancoso are well worth a visit.

The ambassador also highlighted the quality of life in Madrid, the fact Madrid is well connected, with great transport and infrastructure, parks and gardens, cultural and leisure offerings, excellent restaurants, making Madrid a very pleasant city in which to live.

The Brazilian Embassy is located in a classical town house in the elegant Almagro district of Madrid, and retains antique furniture.
