Look of the day: Hearts

March 25, 2016

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry I’ve been away for a few weeks, but I have been quite busy reorganising the new contents and structure for The Duchess (Plus my new adventure for The Big Duchess). Hopefully we will be back to normal soon!

Spring has officially already arrived (although the weather doesn´t seem to agree). I was so looking forward to showing you spring looks, and get rid of winter clothes for a few months, so here is one of my new dresses from my favourite brand Scarlett & Jo. I’m afraid is a bit too soon (and cold) for spring clothes, but I prefer to be optimistic and believe the sun will be staying for longer in the next few months.  

I love the dress, is super flattering and fits me perfectly. And let’s admit it, the print is superb. I know I talk a lot about this brand but you know me, I like to be honest and recommend brands that make our curvy bodies stand out and make the difference.

The boots are from H&M, and I borrowed the bag from my mum. She got it in a local store, I can’t really remember which one.

What do you think? Do you like the outfit?

Welcome! I know, you must be wondering, why is she writing in English?

Well, I have big news for you! First of all, I am starting an exciting new adventure with SModa (a Spanish fashion and lifestyle magazine owned by El País). From now on, you can also find me in The Big Duchess. Needless to say, I would also love to see you all there.

Does this mean The Duchess will disappear? Definitely no. But I have had a chat with my team and we all agreed that it would be a great idea to keep both blogs in different languages. Therefore, from now on, you can read The Duchess entirely in English.

I will be relying on one of my team members to make sure all of my ideas get properly transmitted into Shakespeare’s language. I am afraid my English is not that great yet, but I will be working hard to get there soon!

Last, but not least, I would like to thank you all for your support all these years. I has truly meant the world for me and I will try to keep doing my best to make this world a bit less prejudiced and free of labels.

Well, today's outfit is going to be a quick one. I wanted to share some photos of my new black dress from SPG Jenuan. It is really simple but it works very well as a basic item. I combined it with this pair of Primark shoes (I love the detail of the platform), my fantastic glitter socks and my favourite sunglasses.

This is not THE END

March 6, 2016

Hola, ¿Qué tal? Os preguntaréis porqué aún no he publicado nada esta semana. Bien, llevo un tiempo embarcada en un nuevo proyecto que hace tres días salió a la luz. ¡Comienzo una nueva aventura con Smoda de El País en un espacio llamado THE BIG DUCHESS! Que conste que esto no significa que deje THE DUCHESS, pero a partir de ahora las cosas van a cambiar un poco.

Tras hablarlo con el equipo, hemos llegado a la misma conclusión y hemos decidido que THE DUCHESS se publique enteramente en inglés. Muchos ya sabéis que un gran porcentaje de nuestros seguidores son extranjeros, y creemos conveniente afrontar el reto de publicarlo en inglés (y oye, a los demás a lo mejor os puede servir para practicar idiomas).

Como queremos dar continuidad a este blog, los contenidos tanto de SModa como de THE DUCHESS no van a diferir en lo básico. Básicamente la gran diferencia es que estarán escritos en idiomas diferentes, y algunas veces puede que aquí me centre en aspectos más internacionales.

No obstante, espero veros a todos tanto por aquí como por SModa, y quería aprovechar este post para daros las gracias a todos por apoyarme en estos cuatro años. Sin vosotros no estaría donde estoy. Sois el motivo que me anima cada día a trabajar por un mundo un poco más justo y libre de etiquetas.

Un saludo,
