Christmas Outfit Inspiraton

Christmas Outfit Inspiraton

Christmas Outfit Inspiraton by mucculunga featuring a stretch shirt

It is very difficult to feel really Christmasy with the hot weather in Argentina, which explains the lack of Christmas feeling you get from  my outfits. Nevertheless, I love every occasion to dress up, and Christmas is one of them. And I can't deny that I am pretty exited about the great food and gift-making with my family tonight, as well as the release of the Christmas episode of Doctor Who tomorrow. The eyeball necklace in the second outfit is really tacky, but that's exactly what I love about it. Since I don't own any of these items, this is more like a "This is what I would wear tonight - if I owed any of this stuff" post. I will try to take pictures of my real Christmas outfit tomorrow, specially because I haven't posted any outfit pictures for a very long time.
Happy Holidays to everyone!

Double Exposition, Tavi Gevinson, Meadham Kirchhoff & Beginners

Procrastination has been my middle name for the last couple of days, and instead of working on my personal portfolio, sending important e-mails I actually should be sending, or even socializing with the people around me, I have been wandering around the internet, searching for random stuff. Today I spend some time reading about double exposition. The pictures above are done with Photoshop (Yes, it feels like cheating), but I am planning on doing some real double exposition shots either tonight or in the next couple of days. I am also planning on trying out my old analog camera, and the pinhole camera  I did some time ago, and I also wanted to experiment with High Dynamic Range Photography... And sewing, and outfit pictures, and drawing and, and, and...

Anyways, today I got really excited because there was a new post on thestylerookie.com. I really recommend you to watch the video of a conference she did, it's posted on her blog. And if you didn't notice already, this post is mainly inspired by her.

Another thing I have been really excited about is the New Topshop and Meadham Kirchhoff collaboration. I am not sure if I would buy anything of it (to feminine, to many ribbons), but it is a pleasure looking at it anyways.

I also wanted to show you this illustrations from the movie Beginners I fell in love with. Normally I don't talk about movies in my blogposts, primarily because I am not an expert, and also because I try to focus on fashion, but I just kind of wanted to include this. There is a quote that made me fall in love with this film "Our good fortune allows us to feel a sadness our parents didn't have time for. And a happiness I never saw in them." 

And last but not least, and because I am trying to make this blogpost as  random as possible  (and also because I have to admit that I'm going through kind of a hipster phase right now), here is a live video of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.

Inspiration - Socks

I think my obsession with brightly colored socks started together with my obsession for (Doctor Who - eleventh Doctor) actor Matt Smith. Sounds a little weird, I know, but there is actually a Tumblr (link) dedicated to his brightly colored socks (and several to his clothing, he seems to be de ultimate hipster - and right now a big fashion inspiration for myself). I always really liked the way some socks  can level up your whole look, but I always thought of myself as someone who couldn't pull off that look, since my legs are just way to short. However, the last weeks changed my mind drastically, and I have been wearing every one of my outfits combined with socks, even when the hot weather here in Argentina has been screaming for sandals (I have to admit that my "sock-collection" is pretty poor right now, reducing itself only to black, white, cream and purple). So, here is some "sock-inspiration" for you (and for myself). And if someone knows where in Argentina I can find some mid-high, mustard colored socks, please tell me so, since I would be forever thankful. Mustard colored socks is everything I have been looking for in the last couple of weeks.

//Mi obsesión por medias raras y coloridas empezó con mi obsesión por el actor Matt Smith (Doctor Who - Eleventh Doctor). Suena raro, ya se, peno incluso hay un Tumblr (link) dedicado a sus medias (y también a sus outfits, ya que parece ser EL hipster, y una gran inspiración para mi en último tiempo, a lo que va su vestimenta bizarra). En realidad siempre me gusto mucho la manera que unas medias pueden cambiar y mejorar todo un look radicalmente, pero siempre estuve convencida de que a mi no me quedaban, ya que mis piernas son demasiado cortas para mi gusto. Sin embargo, en las últimas semanas cambie de opinión, y estuve usando casi todos los días un outfit combinado con medias, a pesar de que el clima llamaba mas a usar sandalias (bueno, mi "colección" de medias es media pobre todavía, se reduce nada mas al negro, blanco, crema y violeta). Así que acá un par de fotos que me inspiraron. Y si alguien tiene idea donde puedo conseguir un par de medias de color mostaza en Argentina, por favor diganme, realmente les estaría agradecida por siempre. Medias de color mostaza es todo lo que estuve buscando en último tiempo.
