If I need to find something in common with the pieces of jewelry I wear is how simple they are. Understanding simple as uncomplicated but never plain. Pieces that will not put in jeopardy their femininity and uniqueness.
So, let’s meet Malababa.
I met this brand quite recently , but they have been there already a while ( since 1997).
Their honest creation of fashion accessories linked to a respectful treatment of material was certainly magnetic. Having in mind that their showroom breaths like an ecosystem where all the elements live interconnected on a romantic and fun space.
How important is to get lost every now a then. Sometimes you just simply end up exactly where you needed to be. This time destiny and the direction of a well intended neighbour brought me to what its called a talent warehouse. And under this absolutely appropriate name I meet Rughara.
Located in the vibrant district of Malasaña Rughara merges to perfection fashion & accessories with designed homeware, furniture and Art. Combined in a way that it is rather complicated not to take your time and fuse within scene. That’s right, getting lost one more time!
Set up for those looking for a non-conventional vision of fashion identity. Searching for statement items that speak their own language and do not need translation.
Independent creator and crafters find their way in with the shared vision of spaces like this one. Where artistic talent gets room and claims its flag versus “fast fashion” culture.
Thanks and we talk soon,

This week’s posts will present some unique spots not to be missed if you are visiting Madrid and fashion in kind of your thing.
Starting with the unique fashion vision of Kling. Vivid prints, colour with a trendy retro interpretation and iconic accessories defined this brand. With a mise en scène in their stores that combine creativity and a cool blast from the past taste.
Confession wise … I need to say that I was just having a look and one of those doggy looking hangers caught me unprepared with a dreamy vintage dress that was meant to meet my closet here in Dublin… And so, it was!
I hope you will give it a go, cause it is always an experience to check what these original designers produce each season.

As a woman or probably as a human being, ( clarifying that I am no expert on man’s minds) the search of mesmerising “somethings” follows and guide me at all times. Sometimes dazzled by the personality of a new encounter ,enchanted by a scene on a movie or fascinated by the creativity of a designer …
Or a place all full of charm and magnetising that the thought of not getting involved within that atmosphere it is simply unthinkable. A walking wardrobe that hides quirky clothing with rare accessories surrounded by an ambience of sophistication and style.
As a room like that could take a while to get it fully shaped, it does satisfy me to visit venues that transpire that character and taste.
A friend told me a couple of days ago, at stomp performance, that she liked the attire of the evening. A green blouse, classic red lipstick and my glasses (light brown framed). Of course, appreciate those nice words and realise how some of the selected elements were making a difference. How balancing opposite colours were creating attention and the iconic cat eye liner and the classic bold lipstick bringing another essence to the outfit.
Even though “details” are single pieces of information when combined “the part makes the whole”. They show your taste, your personality, a vision or the simple fact of trying something new.
As mentioned on previous posts (crafts & blings) ornaments layer and add complexity to the general vision. Whether the vision was consciously putted together or was the result of casualty is not that relevant. Though, the more conscious you are the more likely you will obtain a similar results in future attempts.
Let me share with you my current bracelets selection, that I wear almost every day. An ampersand chain from make pie not war, an eseoese accessory and a moonlight & raven bracelet.
Thanks for those that are able to understand people’s personalities and embrace it as you definitely layer mine.
Question: Which are currently your most liked fashion embellishments and do you like to layer them?
