Outfit Post #8: Casual Dinner

Hey girls!

How's everyones weekend going so far? I basically don't have a weekend, because I need to do a lot of work.. so I'm gonne keep it short today! I wore this outfit last week to a casual dinner.. nothing spectaculair, just some nice food & drinks in a cosy bar...so I decided to keep it uber casual and wear my fav sneakers. It was so cold that night I had to wrap myself into a warm sweater. Isn't it gorgeous? I love the a-symetrical cut. I have no idea how I wrapped myself into that thing (it's kind hard), but well, I think it looks great!

Products I love; Hair & Skin Care

Hey ladies! How are you doing?!

So, for todays post I'm going to talk about something TOTALLY different! I always get many questions about how I keep my hair & skin looking so healthy.. well, I think it is a combination of a healthy life, good genes and using the right products! Today I want to share some of these products with you. I only use organic products without any fragrances (only natural frangrances), preservatives, colorants and animal extracts. I think that is one of the reasons why my skin always looks healthy and moisturized. Perfume really has affect on the health of your skin and hair. It is scientifically proved that these contents are damaging. Maybe you will not feel or see it at the moment, but it will slowly have affect on a long term. So, do you wonder why your skin or hair still feels dry after using all those "promising" very expensive products? Maybe you should check what's in it. I totally recommend everyone to start using organic unfragranced products, I promise you will see a difference in no time!!

Early Anniversary Presents!

Hey girls!

This morning I woke up and bumped my head into a huge box. My hub decided to give me my anniversary present earlier, how cute! The box was filled with candy and underneath I found a TUTTI MILANO WATCH...omg, it's SO GORGEOUS! It is MY color..hub really knows me so well. And that wasn't all.. he also got me the newest version of Yves Saint Laurents' perfume: In Love Again!! I can't wait to wear it to dinner tonight, it's SO DEVINE! I really recommend you girls to try it out! It's a little pricy, but it's totally worth it!

Lovely Sunday everyone!

Love,

Lucia

Todays' Inspiration: Frida Kahlo

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share one of my biggest inspirations with you! Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), THE best female artist ever lived! I've been obsessed with Frida Kahlo since a very young age. My mom used to love her work a lot and kept many books about her life and paintings. I used to spend entire days watching her paintings. Over the years, studying her work and life, I've became an obsessed Frida Kahlo expert/freak. You can ask me anything about any paintings or life.. I will know the answer! Anyway, a few weeks ago Grazia dedicated a few pages to Frida Kahlo inspired looks (pictures by Max Salvaggio). Aren't they gorgeous? They really picked the perfect model for thing job, amazing! Frida Kahlo will forever be my #1 inspiration!

If you love art, but don't know about Frida Kahlo, you should for sure check her work!! You can read more about her life on Wikipedia / Frida Kahlo or the official Frida Kahlo fanpage. I also recommend you to see the movie with Salma Hayek, you'll love it!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Love, Lucia

Lucia Flores Design featured in DaWanda Launchbook!

Hey girls,

How's everybodies week going so far? Just wanted to share something exciting (well, for me). I've been featured on many international websites and blogs, but for the first time I've been featured in a "real" press release of a launchbook. Some months ago I was chosen to be featured in the launchbook of the Dutch DaWanda website. DaWanda is the online marketplace for unique and handmade items from international designers and artists. This online marketplace started off in Germany, later came the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Poland and now also the Netherlands. Today I got 20 copies of the book in the mail (dunno yet what to do with so many copies) and I have to say, I feel honered! I have no idea what it's going to bring me, let's hope something good!

Love,
Lucia

For this outfit I was inspired by my friend Bree from The Urban Umbrella, one of my favorite bloggies! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. To show her support she will be posting a "Think Pink" outfit in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month each week. How thoughtful! It really inspired me so much I decided to wear pink today to show my love and support as well!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!!

Lucia

Knitted Must Haves

Hey everyone!

Autumn is really kicking in this week!! Today is the first day I really badly needed a jacket to go outside! It's super stormy in the Netherlands; rain, hard winds, leaves flying around...and super cold, yuck! I really love Autumn, but not when it rains and NEED to go somewhere. People start turning into retards on the road, somehow it seems like everybody is driving more dangerous in dangerous weather...hmm, wonder why?
Anyway, today no inspirational post! I've been surfing the internet for a few hours today to find myself some new sweaters. I found some really awesome knits I wanted to share with you girls, because I'm not sure which ones to pick. Wish I could have them ALL, but well, all is kinda pricy!! So, help me out here! Which one would you definitely buy!?

Love,
Lucia
