Fallin’

fallIt’s been a while, my dear readers, almost three months. After almost four years of blogging, I have now learned that it’s ok to question your posts, to wonder if they have become too repetitive or too boring. It’s ok to take some time to think, to have massive brainstorming sessions and conversations with your troubled and somewhat confused brain, to think about quitting without really having the intention to do so, to sit, breathe and regroup, to get ready and start doing it all over again. When I started Sweet n’raw, it was the only project I had going on in my life. Then came the freelancing and while that was happening (still is) my second baby started taking form. That baby is about to hatch from an egg I’ve been brooding like the hell of a nurturing mother hen that I am (that nurturing quality of mine is reserved to projects and puppies… Little persons, not so much).

My second project, which will be revealed soon enough, also made it hard for me to juggle the blog and my upcoming project. I couldn’t quite figure out how to separate one from the other until I understood that it wasn’t about separating, it was all about combining and that’s exactly what I did. I am armed and ready to start with the new and improved Sweet n’raw. That’s why I wanted to to kick things off with one of my favorite quotes of all-time, a quote about new beginnings, about chances, about Fall. From the talented Mr. Scott Fitzgerald:

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall”.

And since today marks the first day of Fall, let’s start fresh, let’s start all over again. Welcome back my sweet readers, it’s always a pleasure to draw and publish only for you!

Little Miss Bikini

summer

It’s that time of the year again… I spend the entire year longing for July! Why? Because of Summer, warm weather, beach getaways, darker skin, fun nights and colorful swimwear. Need I say more? For Sweet n’raw, Summer means one thing, it’s time for our Bikini special. Every July, for three years in a row, I have been putting together different styles, looks and trends for you to try out when hitting the beach or the pool (I’m more of a pool person). This year, even though I’m a little behind on my posting, I’m ready to give you some Summer fashion you will never forget along with some fun, bright and season illustrations. Are you ready?

We love Summer, because in the Summer skin gets darker, hair gets lighter, music gets louder, water gets warmer, nights get longer, life gets better.

The Off-duty White Dress

off-dutyI have been a big fan of mixing and matching for a  long time. I can’t even remember when it started but I like constructing my looks with many pieces, patterns and prints. I don’t find the thought of wearing a dress as a whole outfit very inspiring, in fact, I haven’t been wearing them for a while (except on weddings, if I could wear dressy shorts to a wedding and not look completely out of place, I would). But when Summer hits town, it’s a different story.  The Summer air makes me want to wear flowy and lightweight (so light they almost look sheer) dresses. The thought of me in a cotton, off-white mini number with a pair of gladiator flats and a camel-colored shoulder bag makes me want to go and wear that right now (even if it’s gray, cold and pouring outside).

The off-duty white dress is not a S/S 2014 trend, it’s a classic, a seasonal must-have, and a lifesaver. It’s a perfect garment when it comes to transforming your outfit from day to night. You can wear it as beach cover-up, as a casual day look for running errands (add some cute sandals, a tote and a pair of sunnies) and with some wedges or lace-up neutral sandals and boho jewelry, you can pull-off the perfect beach soiree or party outfit in a jiffy!

offdutyselThe great thing about this classic? You can find them in every store, in every style, length and fabric. Me? I prefer mine with textures, broderie anglaise, embroidery, lace and even crochet. The more details, the merrier the dress!

Got yours already?

The Coat Check, A/W 2013

rochascoat96I have been fantasizing about that pink, wool-blend Rochas number for a while now. Planning this season’s coat edit, I already knew I wanted it to be the star of the cover and I made it happen (if only I could make that damn coat magically appear inside my closet) . If you have been reading me for a while now, you have probably noticed I have been making some changes when it comes to the content of this blog. I am now mainly focusing on trends, illustration and runway. After our Fashion Week coverage (it took me ages and I know, I still owe you the finest from Paris but I need some detox), it’s time to go back to this season’s trends and styles.

There was a time when one coats or two was all we needed, nowadays, they are never enough. Yes, everybody needs to have the two classics: camel and black. But why stick to the basics when you can have prints, pink, red and more? I have selected twelve trend coats for this Winter. You probably have seen them around so now it’s your turn to buy them!

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE

vogueit200

I like to think of September as a month of endings and beginnings, also, a month with a lot of happenings. After spending the last few weeks parading in our skimpy bikinis and barely there heels, we have to bid farewell to the warmest season and welcome a new one. We have to start covering up and storing our sunny wardrobe inside a box or drawer. Fashion seems to agree with me, not only because September is also known as the Fashion Month (I like to think the industry makes the “warmer to colder” transition easier by giving us next year’s Spring collections) but also because the most important issue for a magazine is the September one (but you already know that).

Each year, we all wait for the big reveal: Who got which cover. Who shot the most covers. Which designer clothes were photographed the most. Which magazine killed it. That’s why, as it’s tradition here at Sweet n’raw, I have all the September Issue scoop right here for you! Are you ready to start?

FALL 2013: A Woman’s Right to Shoes

woman's300

Even though we should be enjoying the last days of Summer (at least here in Mexico), it’s already starting to feel like Fall. But rain showers and chilly weather will not stop me from baring my legs and wearing my naked sandals and denim cut-offs. The jacket/tights/coats/boots season is just around the corner and the warmer one won’t arrive until April 2014. But, even though my body and my tan are refusing to accept the fact that Summer went by in a jiffy, my mind is already getting  A/W ready! Before the Fashion Week mayhem begins, I wanted to start with the trends you need to know for the coming season and like every season, today is all about the shoes! The February runways were filled with some fabulous footwear! From revamped classics to futuristic styles, there’s something for everyone and also, it’s always good to try something new even if you think it’s not really gonna be your thing. I’m not a grunge fan, but ever since those tough, cut-out booties came out, I’ve been dying to get a pair for my collection! Ready for some Fall 2013 shoeporn? Let’s start!

dapperdudep

Blame it on Gatsby, blame it on whoever you want but thank God for brogues, loafers and oxford shoes! Being comfy and dressed-up at the same time? Best combo-in-a-shoe ever!

  1. Tod’s
  2. Zara
  3. Saint Laurent
  4. Givenchy
  5. ASOS
  6. Miu Miu

flats

Remember the Teacher’s Pet trend I posted last week? Casual footwear has gone good! Shiny Mary-Janes, Penny loafers, tassels and laces are in for the season. Think school girl all the way!

  1. Zara
  2. Zara
  3. Zara
  4. Zara
  5. Zara
  6. Saint Laurent

buckles

The Chloé Susanna boots have been around for a couple of seasons and yes, even though buckles have been around for a lifetime, they were the ones that unleashed the “ankle-boot with buckles madness”. They still haunt my dreams and the Zara or Jeffrey Campbell knock-offs just won’t do! Want a little more heel? There are also plenty of buckled styles for you!

  1. Giuseppe Zanotti
  2. Tabitha Simmons
  3. Chloe
  4. Toga Pulla
  5. Altuzarra

jungle

I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while, being an animal print junkie and all! The time has come, the time has come for us to embrace, wear and never take off the colorful, happy and bright animal print pumps! Join the wild and happy army, now!

  1. Brian Atwood
  2. Givenchy
  3. Maison Valentino
  4. Nicholas Kirkwood
  5. Carvela

laces

You know that already (my last post was all about that), bondage is still in and sexier than ever. Personally, I die when I see a sexy heel with laces and this Fall, I think I’m gonna be dying over and over and over!

  1. Zara
  2. Jason Wu
  3. Alexandre Birman
  4. Aquazzurra
  5. Alice + Olivia

toe-caps

Spring 2011, silver toe-caps were major… Fall 2013, any kind of toe-cap is MAJOR and thank God for that. Whether you like a metallic one, a classic black paired up with a little Houndstooth or suede with PVC, possibilities are endless!

  1. Jimmy Choo
  2. Saint Laurent
  3. Paul Andrew
  4. Gianvito Rossi
  5. Gianvito Rossi

meshy

Think cut-outs are sexy? Well, it doesn’t get sexier than mesh in a heel. This season, you can’t possibly survive without a pair of meshy booties or sandals, or pumps, just go out there and buy a pair!

  1. Nicholas Kirkwood
  2. Bionda Castana
  3. Sophia Webster
  4. Sophia Webster
  5. Aquazzurra

cutout

Oh the cut-outs, it’s like an ankle boot with sexiness of a stiletto! It’s powerful and it’s showing a little skin in a season where covering up is almost mandatory. Have you gotten your pair?

  1. Sophia Webster
  2. Gianvito Rossi
  3. Oscar de la Renta
  4. Maison Valentino
  5. Giuseppe Zanotti

retro

I just saw The Great Gatsby and fell in love, not only do I want a guy like Mr. Gatsby but I also want Daisy’s wardrobe  and even though I will not get Miuccia Prada’s dresses anytime soon, I can get her shoes and so can you!

  1. Miu Miu
  2. Charlotte Olympia
  3. Nicholas Kirkwood
  4. Bottega Veneta
  5. Max Kibardin

grungy

The famous or infamous Balenciaga cut-out boots are responsible for this and even if I despised everything about Hedi Slimane’s Fall 2013 collection, I do have to thank him for bringing back the grunge into our lives. I have to admit that this normally would not be my cup of tea, being a sugary, pastel princess. But in fashion and in life, it’s all about trying new things!

  1. Zara
  2. Zara
  3. Zara
  4. Zara
  5. Zara

old

One of the biggest trends of the season is “Blast from the past”. It’s all about the retro, the Noir films, the black and white format, the ladylike silhouette. And an old school lady is never really a lady without a pair of old school pumps.

  • Dsquared
  • Zara
  • Zara
  • Christian Louboutin
  • Gucci

CHELSEA

My favorite shoe trend of the season, I’ve been chasing the perfect pair for ages and I’m even trying to convince my brother to get a pair (he is resisting). Have you got your own?

  1. Bottega Veneta
  2. Saint Laurent
  3. Church’s
  4. Kenzo
  5. Burberry Prorsum

shoes

That was the Fall 2013 shoe guide! Start making your list, start shopping and start wearing! Fashion Week is 9 days away, brace yourselves! As always I will be giving you an extensive coverage, looks, trends, calendars, everything you need!

FALL 2013: Baby Loves Bondage

BLB

The Bondage/S&M/Tough Love trend took the S/S 2013 runways by storm. Harnesses, leather, lingerie styles were all over the place and designers loved it so much, that they decided to keep it for Fall 2013. No, they are not suggesting you to put on a latex jumpsuit and tranny boots, it’s a more subtle and sensual approach. This season is all about plaid, candy coats, men’s silhouettes, the return or Noir and boyish shoes so it’s only fair that they threw a little “sexy” our way. Don’t have that cropped top already? Go with one with a game of straps or cut-outs (I’ve been crunching myself to death in order to rock that trend right). Need a new biker jacket? Forget about plain styles, go for the ones with lots of zippers, belts or clips. LBD? Mini, mini with long sleeves! And shoes, well it’s all about pointy with a stiletto heel, a bunch of straps, patent leather and lace. Last but not least, there’s nothing sexier and more useful than silk camisoles, not only for this style but for everything else as well! Ready to join the chic bondage party? Keep on reading!

FALL 2013: Teacher’s Pet

teacher's pet

Fall is right around the corner! And although I am a warm weather person and I will miss my shorts and bikinis, I can’t be more excited to welcome another fabulous season. As I told you before, I’m not really a boots/coat/heavy knits kind of gal, but after witnessing the wonders that were shown last February on the runways, I can’t help but wonder: Is it Fall yet? This is the second post from our A/W 2013 Edit, first came pink (the strongest color trend) now come plaid and with plaid we get to have a style that we were kinda missing and that of course, we don’t need to take too literal: the school girl. Remember the “Baby, one more time” Britney days? Or Gossip Girl’s uniforms with a twist? Well, get ready my friends because this Fall, we will all wanna be the teacher’s pet! Warning: It’s called School Girl trend, that doesn’t mean you have to dress like a Halloween/sexy fantasy character. Remember, a trend is a mere suggestion, you take what you like and you wear it how you like! Ready?

FALL 2013: A Pink Season

LOVEPINK

It was about time! Mint had its season, Tangerine and Emerald most certainly did and I had been waiting too long for my beloved pink to finally have its moment! Sure, we saw pastel pink two seasons ago. We also had hot pink on Spring 2011 but this Fall, any shade of pink is on trend and pink is the strongest color (I’m doing a victory dance as we speak) for A/W 2013. Some may say that pink is better with warm weather, if you think like them, you haven’t seen the candy coats that some designers sent down the runway last February! Pink for Fall and Winter (I’ve written “PINK” like a million times in one paragraph, but that word is just music to my ears) is pure bliss and since any shade is part of the trend list, you can pick as many rosy garments as you like! Not into pastels? There’s always magenta, raspberry and barbie pink. Not into brights? Vintage rose, perhaps? Remember, we take what we like from the trends and make them our own! That’s why fashion is the most beautiful industry in the whole wide world!

pinkrunway

For today, I prepared a little “Shades of Pink” shopping guide (don’t you dare think I took the title from the infamous books). No, that’s not the name Pantone gave this colors and yes, I gave them the color that first spoke to me when I put the collages together. Ready for this blushing season? I can’t wait to paint my closet (and my room, and my nails, I would even have a pink car if I could) pink! Let’s start!

Is it Fall yet?

fallyet1

Yes, I know many of you are still parading around in your bikinis, enjoying what’s left of your Summer vacations. And yes, I know that there are many sunny and bare legged days left for you to rock those sundresses and those denim cut-offs. But in Fashion, we always have to be one step ahead. I’ve already given you enough bikini trends and styles to last until next Summer, so I’m moving on to the next season: Fall. I have told you a thousand times that I’m a Spring/Summer kinda gal, I love when clothes get lighter, smaller and more colorful. I love when legs are bare and tights are well kept inside a drawer. I love a good pair of sandals and a short pair of shorts. But this time, I really can’t wait for Fall to arrive. The February runways were so good, that I wouldn’t mind switching my white Zara skorts (you know what I’m talking about, you have them as well) for a candy colored coat. The trends are so vivid, so bold, real showstoppers. That’s why today, even if we are more than a month away, Sweet n’raw is welcoming the Fall 2013 season. All you need to know about it, what to buy now to wear later, which trends to love and which trends to hate, what to keep from your Spring wardrobe, transition garments and pieces, the shoe guide, the accessory edit, everything! And to start with the madness, I have for you every single one (almost) of the Fall 2013 ad campaigns! Ready?
