El 31 de diciembre decidí darme una vueltita con mi sobrina y mi bebe, comernos un helado y volver a casa. En lugar del helado nos fuimos a Starbucks de Albrook Mall Panamá porque era Lunes de 2X1. Wujuuuu! No se puede desaprovechar un 2×1 en Starbucks.  Llegamos, nos instalamos, el lugar estaba bastante vacío claro porque la mayoría de la gente estaba haciendo sus compras y arreglos para esperar el fin de año. El local era casi nuestro lol.

Como siempre en Panamá, la calor estaba en su punto, así que nos decidimos por unos frappes! Mi sobrina no toma café así que para ella era un frappucino de Chocolate yum yum y para mi uno de Caramelo (con café).

Hice mi pedido en tamaño alto y cuando voy pagar, la cuenta sale por 12.00 USD mas o menos (casi me desmayo) pienso…

I love gift giving not only in Christmas(which is the best time of the year ever) but for any special occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries or simply getting a detail for those I love.

Now,  gift giving is not only about the gift itself. It’s about WRAPPING THE GIFTS as well!

I love to personalize them, so whoever the gift is for, it has my signature. Also, is a way for me to express how much I care. Gifts should be personal and all about the one who’s receiving it.

For example, how cool is for a kid to receive a gift with balloons on top instead of a bow? Well, the same goes for adults, it’s just that most people won’t admit it… hehehe

I encourage you to get creative and personalize your presents for the next occasion ;-).

Here are some of my suggestions based on the wrappings I did for last Christmas!

  1. First, pick a color palette. Neutral and metallics, red and golden, black and white, vibrant neons, etc.
  2. Second, go shopping some fun, elegant or subtle materials. All depends on your theme and color palette.

    THESE ARE A FEW OF THE ITEMS I RECOMMEND YOU TO GET!

    (apart from the basics, scissors and tape)

PERSONALIZED CARDS

Instead of the usual bow and ribbon, go for personalized cards based on the occasion. They are so much fun and give a nice twist to the present.  To make it better,  add a message on the card.

WRAPPING PAPER IN THE COLOR OF YOUR CHOOSING

Stick to a color palette and tied back to your theme. Choose diverse prints, textures and even solids.  When you stick to a color palette,  everything will match! If it’s you’re first time, it will be easier too.

I opted for rose quartz, golden, white and black.

In prints I bought a golden paper with Christmas details, a white roll with tonal and bright stripes and a solid soft pink.

ASSORTED & FUN RIBBONS

Go nuts with the ribbons. No limits here. When I was ribbons shopping I found this gorgeous golden thread from, which tied back perfect to what I had in mind.

START EXPERIMENTING AND HAVING FUN

COMBINE MATERIALS

Remember, if you choose a cohesive color palette, everything will match. It´s just a matter of letting you creative mind do the work.

 

LINE UP YOUR CREATIONS AND GET READY TO SURPRISE YOUR LOVED ONES

THE REST OF THE RIBBONS I GOT THEM AT MY LOCAL SHOP.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!

Best,

AQWALUZ COLLECTION by TONY VERGARA

by Debbie

TONY VERGARA in charge of the MERCEDES BENZ PANAMA FASHION WEEK 2016 closure on Opening Night and the most expect , didn’t cease to surprise us. I didn’t had with me any details of the collection, like inspiration, elaboration, nor concept. I had nothing, only my expectations and anxiousness to interpret TONY VERGARA’S world.  The show starts with feminine shades, and you all know how I adore them. White, rose, peach and orange shades, like the sunset is upon us. All mimicking one another throughout the looks walking the runway. Loved the structure and fluidness of the pieces. A fluidness translated into the fabrics movement and flow of every piece.

TONY VERGARA encargado de dar cierre al día inaugural del Mercedes Benz Panama Fashion Week 2016 y el más esperado de la noche, no dejó de sorprendernos no tenia en mis manos detalles de la colección, como su inspiración, elaboración, concepto ni nada. Estaba completamente a la expectativa y ansiosa de interpretar el mundo de TONY VERGARA. Inicia el desfile con tonalidades femeninas, que saben me encantan. Tonalidades, blancas, rosas, duraznos, naranjas, como si el atardeccer estuviese justo frente a nosotros. Todas mimetizandose a lo largo de todos los looks presentados.  Me encantaron la fluidez y estructura de las piezas. Fluidez que se traducía en el movimiento de las telas a lo largo de la pasarela.

A current collection with a Couture touch. A collection that speaks to today’s women. That woman who dresses in oversized and urban pieces mixed with pencil skirts that add chicness to her wardrobe. That same woman also loves couture, embellishment and lace. She wants to be transported to special moments through fashion.

**********

Una colección actual con un toque de Alta Costura.  Una colección que le habla a la mujer de hoy, esa mujer que hoy viste piezas oversized y urbanas mezcladas con faldas corte lápiz que le dan un toque chic a su guardarropa. Esa misma mujer igualmente ama la alta costura, los encajes y bordados. Esa mujer desea que la transporten a momentos muy especiales.

Tony Vergara creative director of TONY VERGARAS brand presented a collection 90% handmade in collaboration with panamanian craftsmen using natural silks and hybrid materials hand on hand with industrial equipment always conscious of the environment.

This was my favorite COUTURE STATEMENT of the collection. To me it represents completely the concept behind the collection.  I remember the model walking down the runway. As she walked, the dress moved as if it was under the water and it almost became alive.  Inspire in coral reefs, jellyfishes and anemonas of our region, the look represents it all in High Couture.

On the ready to wear meet romantic and chic, I loved these two looks.

**********

Este fue mi look EMBLEMÁTICO EN ALTA COSTURA de la colección. El cual para mi representa completamente el concepto de la colección.  Recuerdo que a medida que la modelo avanzaba por la pasarela, el vestido lograba moverse como si estuviera debajo del agua y cobrara vida. Inspirado en los corales, medusas, arrecifes y anémonas de nuestro territorio, este look lo representa todo en Alta Costura.

Del lado listo para usar, romántico y chic ame estos dos looks.

I leave you with AQWALUZ SPRING SUMMER 2017 complete look book.
