Friday I'm in love

I'm glad to tell you guys I finally got a pair of Doc Martens for a reasonable price from a second hand store in France, so I hope you understand I virtually can't wait until this sunny rather-warm September days go off and serious cold and rain make their appearance. Until then, here is some quality street style inspiration. Enjoy!


gotta love it

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over alanyzing, all emotions are relative. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Life is simple. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once. Seize them. Life is about people you meet, and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Life is short: live your dream and share your passion.



and there were nights in bars that I recall


Although the band is from Oregon (USA) this song is in fact about my hometown, Oviedo (Spain), where apparently the singer spent a year as an Erasmus exchange student. A friend of mine showed it to me some time ago and I freakin' really like it. And yes, there are peacocks in the trees in Oviedo. 
Not kidding at all.


for the sake of it

Paris, 1952. Paul Almasy.

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.
Guilda Radner


The road not taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bend in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn tem realy about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.



you can count on me to misbehave

Well, one does not simply get over Klimt.
This is Hygeia, a detail from Medicine.


don't ever set me free

- I have to tell you, you're making me nervous 
in a way I am not really familiar with.

everything you didn't do

Twenty years form now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain


Elie Saab ready-to-wear collection 2012


I'd trade my soul for any of these dresses without hesitation.
Dude, too much perfection for being real.


fine and mellow


Love will make you drink and gamble,
make you stay out all night long.
Love will make you do things
that you know is wrong.


just stay

If you want to know where your heart is, 
look to where your mind goes when it wanders.
