Elle Fanning Red Carpet Looks

There is no doubt that  the Fanning genes are filled with talent.
I personally feel like it was just yesterday that I was watching Dakota dance around in a pink ballerina skirt with Brittany Murphy; and even though time flew right before our eyes, the most wonderful part about seeing the girls grow up, is to see them become such fine young ladies.
Ever since I spotted  Elle Fanning on Teen Vogue I fell in love with her look. I think it would be a dream to get to design for either one of the Fanning girls. I love how they always looks so elegant and put together. Love how they style complicated pieces into chic, modern and youthful outfits, and most importantly, I love how they always look so classy.

Recently I watched the trailer for Elle Fanning’s new movie “Ginger and Rosa”. The trailer had me head over heels at the first 10 seconds of footage. What a production! The visual aesthetics were impeccable. I can’t wait to watch the film and keep feeding my current inspiration revolving around cuban history, the 1960’s and the idea of young pure-hearted females in history.

You can watch the trailer here.

So as usual, I decided to create a few looks for Elle Fanning, keeping in mind that award season is coming up. Although the looks are different to her usual style, I know no better that to style people with my personal touch. Ha!
I hope you guys enjoy the first sketches for 2013!

The Internet. Home for the Homeless




It’s one of those moments when I have too much to say.

My only wish is that everything posted below says exactly what I cannot write at the moment.

10 Designs – 1 vision

Lots  and lots of pictures for this post!
Feels like it has been 100 years since my last post.

This mini collection was inspired by the whole “circles = endless lines = eternity” that you guys have seen me write about in the last few posts. The many things that are made up of circles is something really overwhelming to think about, so I am not going to go there. As cheesy as it may sound, I am going to let the designs speak for themselves.

It has been quite the ride taking 21 hours this semester and trying to feel inspired and wrestle with the sad reality of what the fashion world is like. The good news is that I am surviving and getting throughout it. As Gladys from the Ellen show would say “Just keep on keeping on” haha.
Oro Advice is to play this while you look at the designs.

3D Caroline in Watercolor

Thank God for having a free day!

I told myself that I wasn’t going to do any school work today.

So I grabbed my watercolors, listened to Natalia Lafourcade,

And painted my friend Caroline from Care’s Pantaloons.


El sabor amargo
En la boca

El mundo gira
Mis pies se detienen

Doy la vuelta y camino
En dirección contraria
Doy la vuelta y mis piernas
Se sienten libres

Y la noche sale bien
Que los sonidos
Cubren mis oidos
Y entre migajas de mi ser
Voy recostruyendo mi destino

Tengo helada la piel
La memoria se va después

entre mis manos
el pasado

Mientras los árboles miran
me rio de la vida

Muestran el camino donde debo ir
Voy tirando los recuerdos
