Dear readers,

In between transition of stations it’s so much easier to wear black and white. You are tired of the same boring coats but it’s still too soon to be wearing spring/summer colorful pieces. The best solution: a printed light coat. It was a relief to find a fun light coat I could wear whenever I’m in a hurry during the morning. And believe me, there are always those days when you just can’t find what to wear! In New York you have cold mornings but warm afternoons. That’s why it’s basic to have a piece like this in your closet. A fun, black and white printed light coat. It always gives you that little extra you are looking for without putting to much effort into your look.

Dear readers,

When they asked me to fill in the blank…. My blog is _________

The only thing I could think was “My alter ego”
Dear Milano has become the best, most beautiful, positive and real version of Andrea Maria. Me.

Not everyone has the chance to meet me in person, or have a real conversation (real, because I do have conversations with you guys, but only via internet) The best part about this blog, is that I get the chance to meet so many amazing people, yes YOU. I get to share most of my life with so many beautiful people from all around the globe, and get inspired by every single one of you. Dear Milano is for sure my alter-ego; the best of me. And I could only hope I get to know you some time soon, when we have the chance.
Thank you for supporting me through this road that I call life. Each and every single day that passes I can only be but grateful because it is getting more exciting all the time. And to be nominated around such great and inspiring Mexican bloggers gets me even more excited. I think we all deserve the “Top styling fashion blog” title. ☺

Thank you for all your support. The best is yet to come!

Here is the link where you can vote for Dear Milano on the “Mejor blog de Estilismo 2014″ category:

Cuando me pidieron que completara la frase: My blog is ___________

Lo único que pude pensar y lo primero que me vino a la mente fue “My Alter Ego”

Dear Milano se ha convertido en lo mejor, lo mas bonito, positivo y real de Andrea Maria. Yo.

No todo el mundo tiene la oportunidad de conocerme o tener una conversación real conmigo (digo real porque claro que platico con ustedes pero solo via internet) La mejor parte de tener este blog es que tengo la oportunidad de conocer a gente increíble. Si, como tú. Puedo compartir un poco de mi vida con cada uno de ustedes, personas increíbles de todas partes del mundo. Al mismo tiempo, puedo inspirarme con todos sus comentarios y diferentes personalidades, culturas. Dear Milano es mi Alter Ego; lo mejor de mi. Y solo puedo desear algún día conocerlos, en persona, no solo por Instagram o Facebook cuando tengamos la oportunidad.

Gracias por apoyarme y acompañarme en este largo camino que yo llamo vida. Tengan por seguro que me hacen el camino mas fácil con tantos comentarios tan lindos que recibo diario. Cada día que pasa no puedo estar mas que agradecida ya que cada vez se pone mas emocionante. Y el estar nominada al lado de tanto talento mexicano y niñas tan increíbles me llena de emoción. De verdad creo que todas nos merecemos el titulo de “Mejor blog de estilismo” ☺

Gracias por todo tu apoyo. Estoy segura, que lo mejor esta por venir.

Este es el link en donde pueden votar por Dear Milano en la categoría de “Mejor Blog de Estilismo 2014″

Dear readers,

The weather is finally starting to get better. During the weekend, I wake up to stare out my windows. The streets of SoHo are full of people again. It makes me feel excited to go out and wear beautiful colors once again. Spring is almost here. Can you believe how quickly the months are passing by?

I’m going to my Mexico this weekend. I need sunshine! I need the beach! I need sand in my toes! I’m so excited to go back to my beautiful country. Can’t wait to get there, Cancun wait for me!

 

El clima está empezando a mejorar. Durante el fin de semana, me levanto y veo por mis ventanas. Las calles de SoHo están llenas de gente otra vez. Me hace sentir emocionada de salir y llevar hermosos colores. La primavera está apunto de llegar. ¿Pueden creer lo rápido que los meses están pasando?

Me voy a mi México este fin de semana. ¡Necesito sol! ¡Necesito la playa! ¡Necesito arena en mis pies! Estoy muy emocionada de volver a mi hermoso país. No puedo esperar a llegar, Cancun, wait for me!

Xo,

Andy.

Forever21 Look 3

Dear readers,

This is me. Running on a Monday morning to get to the office. Literally everything about this look screams to me: New York baby!

 

Printed pants, low-heel black leather booties, crocodile inspired bag, round vintage sunnies I got on Brooklyn and my favorite-ever super feminine Forever21 coat. Yes ladies, it’s forever21. I bet you thought it was an expensive one because of the amazing fit and cut. But no! That’s totally a catch.

 

The secret about this coat is that I changed the button’s to give it the vintage vibe (Gold. Gold. Gold.). Have you ever try to modify something about your clothes? I’m always inventing new stuff and transforming my clothes. Have you wear a jacket closed without anything above? It’s cool to wear your jackets as a top too! I’m always converting dresses into skirts too. Just add a big sweatshirt and no one will ever figure out your skirt it’s actually a dress. You should totally try it.

 

Have a beautiful week!

 

Xo,

Andy

Dear readers,

This is my second look for my collaboration with Forever21. The thing I love the most about Forever21 is that you can find a lot of trends together. There’s where the fun part begins and your creativity plays the most important role when picking an outfit. Floral and nude leather together, could it get any more feminine? Try a new hairstyle and add some bold sunglasses and you’re ready to go for that coffee!

Fashion Week is over and I can’t believe it was only 7 days where so many things happened. I met a lot of new friends with whom I can share my love for fashion and blogging. I spend my weekend recovering from those crazy days and catching up with my friends. I really needed a couple of days off to start a new week. Today we are photoshooting for The Fancy Archive, a really cool project where you can find the top fashion icons from Mexico. You can see the whole interview next week. Have a beautiful Monday!

Este es el segundo look de mi colaboración con Forever21. Lo que mas me gusta de Forever21 es que puedes encontrar muchas tendencias en un solo lugar. Es ahí donde la parte  divertida comienza y tu creatividad juega el papel mas importante al momento de elegir tu outfit. Estampado floral y piel en color nude. ¿Así, o mas femenino? Intenta un nuevo peinado y agrega unos lentes con marco grueso ¡y estas listísima para salir por ese café!

La semana de la moda ha terminado y no puedo creer que en tan solo siete días hayan pasado tantas cosas. Conocí a mucha gente increíble, nuevos amigos, con los que puedo compartir mi amor por la moda y mi blog. Me pase el fin de semana tratando de recuperar energías de todos esos días tan locos. De verdad necesitaba un par de días de paz para poder iniciar esta semana recuperada. Hoy tengo una sesión de fotos para The Fancy Archive. Un proyecto padrísimo en donde puedes encontrar entrevistas a los iconos de moda en México. Podrás ver la mía la siguiente semana. ¡Que tengan un bonito lunes!

Xo,

Andy.

NYFW Day 2: Pastels with Forever21

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Dear readers,

I want to introduce you to my first Forever21 outfit of the day.  I’ll be posting a different look every week. For the second day of New York Fashion Week I wanted to wear pastels in a monochromatic way. Pink and Baby Blue are really cool this season and you can find a lot of different pieces on Forever21.com

I’ve been running around New York like crazy. I even got sick. But here I am, working, posting, and getting ready for today’s shows: EnNoir FW14 & The Guess Party.  Big kisses for all of you!

Quiero presentarles mi primer look de Forever21. Voy a publicar un look diferente cada semana. Para el segundo día de la Semana de la Moda de Nueva York que quería llevar pasteles de forma monocromática. Rosa y celeste pastel son realmente una grand tendencia esta temporada y puedes encontrar una gran cantidad de piezas diferentes en Forever21.com 

He estado corriendo por todo Nueva York como un loca. Incluso me enfermé. Sin embargo aquí estoy, trabajando, escribiendo este post, y preparándome para los eventos de hoy: EnNoir FW14  y la fiesta de Guess. ¡Muchos besos!

Xo,

Andy

NYFW Day 1: Desigual & Mark and Estel.

Desigual FW14 / Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, New York.

Dear readers,

Yes! It’s that time of the year, again! New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2014 I have to admit that living in New York is already exciting, but during fashion week, you can see models running around everywhere to get to the fittings and fashion shows. The city just happens to have a fashionable glam vibe everywhere. From fashion runways, presentations and after parties, all eyes are on New York this week. This season has been really hard for everyone in the industry. Hundreds of flights have been cancelled making it almost impossible to get to New York. And let’s not talk about the snowstorm warnings.  But that doesn’t stop anyone to get dress, layer up and enjoy fashion week! Let’s hope everything work out for the best.

Yesterday was the first day of NYFW. My first show was Desigual, which I love and been following closely since the times I lived in Europe back in 2009. I have in my closet some amazing maxi dresses with beautiful prints from Desigual. Now you can imagine how excited I was to attend and be part of this new season. The big highlights of the event were Karolína Kurková sitting in front of me wearing this amazing black and white coat from Desigual. And guess who opened the runway? The one and only Candice Swanepoe! Gorgeous as always! The music was so good, I was about to get up and start dancing lol

My second show of the day was Mark and Estel, with a pallet of black and whites and a rockstar kind of vibe. The collection was amazing. The highlights: at the end of the runway the same Mark and Estel showed up to the runway with two microphones ready to rock and sing for all their guests. It was surreal! Something so unexpected that I haven’t seen before on any runway! Good move guys! Thumbs up!

It was extremely hard to decide what to wear (It’s freeeeeeeezing) I’ve been a little too much obsessed with Vintage clothing lately that I decided it was time to give it a try during fashion week. The best part about wearing vintage clothes is that you can be one hundred percent sure; no one is going to be wearing the same pieces. Yesterday it was all about layering up! Layers, layers and more layers to stay warm. I have to admit I was freezing wearing that amazing skirt but I had to give it a chance with some really high boots. And it totally worked!

If you want to keep updated with all the NYFW FW14 news, follow my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’m posting videos and pictures live from the runway!

Stay warm and be ready for some new amazing posts from NYFW!

Xo,

Andy
