In some corners of the Spanish schools can find people like her who are weaving, sometimes it is a little difficult take pictures, but if you say please and you offer them a smile gladly accept.

The Devil's Chair by José Moreno

I can bet that when they read the title of the photo you are scared! but no quiet is just a couch with a skull carved back, this almost always see in places of piercings, tattoos, skates, etc.. Have you seen anything more sinister than that?

Puedo apostar que cuando leyeron el título de la foto ustedes se asustaron! pero nó tranquilos es solo un sofa con un grafiti de una Calavera atrás, esto casi siempre lo vemos en lugares de perforaciones, tatuajes, skates, etc. ¿Haz visto algo más tenebroso que esto?

Fashion Friday!! Sitting in Style

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Sitting in Style by Luna McCarthy

This gentleman has it all, whitest of white shirts (with a t-shirt underneath), cowboy hat, jeans that are faded just right. I doubt that he would consider himself a fashion statement, but I think this look is fantastic! He gets a 9.5 out of 10 (extra points for the dark socks with the shoes), just half a point short of a 10, because a perfect 10 would have to include cowboy boots. But this fellow is rocking the sitting in the park on a sunny morning look, that’s for sure.

Not Just For the Women

Styles for the Boys by Luna McCarthy

There have been a number of photos posted before about all of the women’s shoes for sale here in Xela. Women’s shoes are a big seller, we ladies LOVE the pretty shoes. But men’s and boy’s shoes are just as big of a hit, they just happen to have less sparkle.

Fashion Friday!! tilde!

Snazzy Shoes by Luna McCarthy

I posted about the fabulous boutique tilde when they opened last year, The Hip Place to Be!. As today is Fashion Friday, I thought I would provide some photos of the amazing new stock available in the store right now. Stop in to see them and peruse the inventory or eat some fabulous food. They also show movies every Monday night. You can find all their information (hours, address, etc.) on their Facebook page here: tilde.

Fashion Friday!! – Pacas!

Pacas! by Luna McCarthy

What Fashion Friday would be complete without a shot of a paca? Where many of us uber-fashion conscious shoppers shop!! I have raved about the pacas here before, and I am just as big of a fan as I used to be. Here, you can find the coolest, retro or up-to-date fashion clothes possible in Xela. Mmmmm, pacas, truly a fashion-girl’s best friend!

Fashion Fridays – Hats!

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Perfect Hat by Luna McCarthy

I love hats. Hats are fun, cheeky and can be a girl’s savior on a bad hair day! This model gets a 10 out of 10 for her fun, casual look as she rides her scooter around a rooftop. Hat, sunglasses, pink sweater…perfect Friday afternoon wear!

Fashion Fridays! Perfect 10

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Perfect 10 by Luna McCarthy

Today’s model is the first to receive a score of Perfect 10. From the square corners of his grey suit to the pressed light blue shirt to the fabulous yellow tie that pops with color, this gentleman is rocking business wear and looking sophisticated (albeit preoccupied with business-y stuff). And, not a white sock in sight!! (Gentlemen take note.) Congratulations to Fashion Fridays first Perfect 10!!

Fashion Friday!! Half-Traje

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Half-Traje by Luna McCarthy

There is a unique fashion trend, perhaps not only to Xela…women wearing “half-traje”. The skirt is the cultural norm worn in full traje, but the tops seem to vary. Sometime you see regular blouses, sometimes name brand sweatshirts on the younger girls. Here, today’s model sports awesome red shoes and a fancy little sequined tank top. This woman gets a 9 out of 10, as I really like the matchy-matchy-ness of this outfit, but she loses a point, because her bag wasn’t included in the ensemble.

Fashion Fridays! Well Put Together

Black and White by Luna McCarthy

This lady’s black and white ensemble is quite lovely and pleasant. I love the simplicity of the matching blouse/skirt combo, the large, bold print is dramatic, but clean looking. But for me, this look is totally completed by the shoes! (Yes, I have a bit of a “shoe” fetish.) The bag is simple and understated and the entire look is overall quite nice.

Today’s model gets an 8 out of 10. A higher ranking would have been achieved by a bit slicker of a hairstyle…but then again, 8 out of 10 is pretty good!
