My Love from the Star

I am not going to talk about ‘my’ love today, do not get confused. I am going to talk about the Korean TV series of the moment: ‘My Love From the Star’ and its funny impact in the fashion industry. I cannot stop being surprised by the way tv can affect people. Not only their behavior but also their hopes, their dreams… the way of perceiving life in general. A pair of stilettos from Jimmy Choo was lying on a shelf for months, when some producer decides to put it on a Korean TV soap opera and everything changes…. The shoes are sold out all over the world in a matter of days, the internet gets drowned of counterfeits and the company orders a massive production again. In 4 months the stores are bleeding shoes and the craze does not seem to stop.

You know how passionate I am about Jimmy Choo already so, when I read THIS article in the Wall Street Journal I thought I had to share it with you. It is surprising and even a little bit scary how other’s perception can change our own. I kind of admire that there are people capable of manipulating our minds like that, without even knowing that they are doing it (apparently, Jimmy Choo did not pay for the product placement). I bet that a paid collaboration would not have had the same effect…

I love Jimmy, always have and probably always will. All this fuss around the shoes has had a reverse impact on me… I want to watch ‘My Love from the Star’!!! Because, if they have people able of perceiving the beauty of a pair of Jimmy Choos that were not that popular… they must be visionaries, or something like that…

I have checked and the shoes are currently available HERE .  They are a beauty, aren’t they? Maybe I will copy them too…

Ugly Shoes are not Ugly

Today I want to share with you a much more casual and everyday outfit than the usual. I wear it to meet my friends, to hang out or to go to the cinema. I wear the skirt to my dance lessons sometimes. I assure you that this is not the last time you see it!

The key thing about this look is the fact that I wear an evening clutch as an everyday bag. It is super confortable and light and I could easy wear it with an evening dress and heeled sandals and look very appropiate.

The funny thing about this outfit are the shoes. The baker hated them since minute 1 and I could see disgust in her eyes through the lenses of the camera all the time. That is why there are no close ups of the shoes, I guess…

I like to be the kind of person who can easily wear a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos or a pair of ugly shoes like these and not feel like I am losing part of my identity. I hate when people say that because of wearing a certain bag, dress or similar, they feel like some celebrity or they feel like they are better people. I am who I am and a pair of shoes will not change that. They will make me look slimmer, taller or more pretty but never like a different person.

I hope you like the outfit as much as I do.

Skirt: Zara

Blouse: Zara

Welcome to Fashionista in the Oven

This is our first official post and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a 16 year-old fashionista from a beautiful place called A Coruña. It is located in Galicia, a land of green trees and blue rivers, washed by the wild and immense Atlantic Ocean.

My home is the place of great legends and tales, of beautiful landscapes and views and of tasty and fulfilling food. However, our studio is located in Barcelona. There is where my Baker lives. If you are from Barcelona, you will probably recognize some locations from our shootings, I love the cosmopolitan and adventurous environment of the city and I never miss the chance to jump out of the car and take some pictures when there is a place that catches my eye.

Fashionista in the Oven was born out of a simple concept. There should be no rules in fashion. Beauty is about charisma more than symmetric facial features and, with hard work and determination, anyone can become anything.

I am still a teenager and, as you can imagine, hard work and determination does not sound too good to me. I like to hang out with my friends and watch tv, just like everyone else. But it is all worth it after every shooting.

Fashionista in the oven is our little sponge cake. We have been mixing the ingredients without following a clear recipe for a long time and today is the moment when we finally turn the oven on. We cannot wait to see what comes out of this!

Thank you for reading me and stay tuned for more!
