monochrome trend recap

Today I’m starting a new series called “Trend Recap” in which we will discuss the current trends in the fashion world. Today, we will focus on monochromatic outfits. If you’re a fan of street style like me, you’ve definitely seen the trend spread like a disease. Not only on models (we will get there in a minute) but also on bloggers, actors, singers… You name it.
So, if you’re completely clueless about what the hell this trend is about (it’s okay, that’s why you’re reading this), let me break it down for you.

Mon•o•chrome:
Noun: a painting or drawing in different shades of a single color.
Adj. Being or made in the shades of a single color.

Coachella best looks

Trying a new “scrapbook” vibe for the blog, do you like it?

I’m probably late to the post-Coachella party, considering that the internet has been talking about it for months before the festival even started. But for somebody that has been dying to attend the festival (and still hasn’t gotten the chance), it’s never too late to talk about it. FOMO had me watching the livestream of the whole thing (like I do every single year) and I don’t know how I managed to miss the performance of one of my favorite bands (Chvrches, they’re pretty good).

Anyways, if you’re here it’s because you’re interested on the fashion, but I’m pretty sure you’ve already gone through a hundred “Best Dressed” Coachella posts, so, to mix it up a little bit I decided to share with you some of my favorite new music finds of the festival, even though I wasn’t even there (but plan to be, very soon).

intotheindustryHey everyone! Today’s post is very short but extremely important to me. Last week I entered a giveaway to try to win a trip to New York City and a 3 day workshop called “Into The Industry”. Little did I know that I would end up in the 10 finalists. Now all that’s left is the voting stage, the person that has the most votes will win it all. (Vote for me here).

Let me tell you a little bit more about Into The Industry, it’s a 3 day workshop that takes place in the beautiful city of New York, founded by experts in fashion, beauty, photography, marketing and pretty much everything that is needed to earn a spot “into the industry”. You can learn more about it in their webpage and you can enroll now if you’re interested.

I heard about this workshop when I was lucky enough to get a super close and personal skype conference with the ever beautiful and intelligent Andrea María from Dear Milano, during a marketing congress last week. I instantly did my research and found out about the giveaway and I just had to try my luck, then I found out I had been chosen as 1 of the 10 finalists and I’m just too excited, I can’t even think straight anymore, so please excuse any typos.

If you’re reading this please click here and vote for me (Ana Picazzo), getting to go to NYC and be a part of that workshop would be a huge milestone in my personal and professional life.

I can only thank you for all the support that you have given me in the short time I’ve been blogging, you’re the best readers and friends I could ask for.

Voting ends next sunday, april 24 at 2:00 PM EDT

I don’t know why or how florals ended up representing some kind of synonym for spring, if you’ve seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” (I talk more about that movie here), you know the whole “Florals for Spring (groundbreaking)” thing. Regardless of just being some quote in a fashionable movie, it’s true. The sun comes out to play and the first thing that comes to our minds (whether we wear them or not) are florals. Flowers in dresses, skirts, jackets and even shoes. Maybe it’s classical conditioning (please excuse my marketing dork self), maybe it’s the warm weather or stereotypes, but there’s something that dictates us to only wear dark, bold colors during fall and winter and then pick brighter colors and patterns during spring and summer. It’s something similar to restaurants that won’t serve you their breakfast menu for dinner or the other way around.
