By nightfall

culottes and pleats5 

 It's only Wednesday and I'm already thinking of the weekend. Somehow this week is running much slower than usual, even though I am running around town with different errands and doing the occasional photo shoots.
 In a way, I wish the time could pass slower, because I am not ready to say goodbye to Summer just yet. I've already noticed the Fall collections in stores and that just depresses me a little and the funny thing is that I remember a few years back how restless I was this time around and I just couldn't wait for Autumn.
 Anyway, this is what I wore on Saturday evening when the weather was still hot and actually much more pleasant during the night time. A somewhat retro outfit, topped with that vintage micromosaic bracelet which has become one of my prized possessions in my vintage collection. 
How do you like it?

On hot Summer days

dotted dress6 

 Seems like the heat is back to torture my level of comfort and my skin, but no matter, I have this baggy old dress that is so loose and so comfortable, it makes me feel like I'm wearing a plain sheet of chiffon and nothing else. 
Very easy to move around as well, so I highly recommend getting this type of dresses during hot Summer days, they are a life saver!
 Seems all I have been wearing lately are dresses, but that's not really the case, although I do prefer them over shorts or mini skirts. At least until October. I hope Summer will last until then.

 Have a relaxing weekend guys!

Uncommon Goods

Have you ever heard of Uncommon Goods Jewelry? If not, let me tell you a little bit about it. A site based in USA that offers hand made jewelry made by various artisans and designers each with a unique style that you really can't find elsewhere.

They don't only sell jewelry, but all sorts of decorative products, like personalized gifts, and we all know, we love to have stuff that are in accord with our personality and lifestyle.
So, if you are one looking for awesome products to offer as gifts to your close ones, this is the place to search: wedding gifts, presents for moms or kids, you can find jewelry, cups, robes, books or toys, you name it!

My choice was this gorgeous hand made necklace made by Emilie Shapiro who loves to create bold and beautiful jewelry by placing gems in wax castings, then melding brass around it for a uniquely organic design.

Also, these gorgeous golden bracelets made by  Tulianna and Alejandra Garces. Beautifully crafted by Colombian artisans, these bracelets are made from antique lace dipped in lustrous 24k gold. The process is entirely done by hand: pieces of lace are cut and sewn, dipped in wax to seal and reinforce them, then in a layer of copper, and finally in 24k gold. 

How amazing is that? To take a delicate textile fabric and dip it into gold to create jewelry. I never heard of something as creative as this before, I loved the idea!
