Summer is approaching here in the tropics (Panama) and these are the things that prove to be the ones I gravitate towards the most (when not at work): sunnies, cute backpack for sunny day adventures, ice skater skirts, dresses, some reading material and happy/girly lips!

Acá en Panamá se acerca el verano, y estos son los complementos que se vuelven uniforme para mí (en mis tiempos libres): lentes de sol, una mochililla para esos días en que decides explorar, faldas de corte en A tipo skater, vestidos por supuesto, algo para leer y por supuesto labios bien felices y naturales!

So this is a really popular type of post, and I thought it would be fun to see maybe how the contents of my purse change over time. Right now, we still don’t have regular sunlight, so no shades in my purse yet, but hopefully they’ll be stationed inside my purse by next month :)

The cute elephant coin purse (#13), I love it so much, and has a kind of funny story behind it. At the beginning of this year, I went on holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia, and bought one just like this one in Siem Reap (Cambodia). It was the same purse as in the picture, only in granny apple green with the elephant on turquoise, I think. We had to return to Vietnam from Cambodia on bus, and I remember having the purse when I got off the bus in Ho Chi Minh, but for some reason when I got to the beach, the purse was nowhere to be seen! I was so sad, ’cause even though it only cost me 1USD, I really loved it! I had only bought one, and it wasn’t like I could go back to Cambodia and get another one. So then I remembered it said “Made in Thailand”, and some of my friends were going to Thailand later in the month, so I asked one if he could try to find one for me, and he had some from a previous trip to Thailand to give away as gifts, and never did! what are the chances?? Anyway, he had a bunch and let me choose one :) I was really happy to get my coin purse back. <3

Hope you liked the post and the story, haha xx

Donna Karan + Christina Ricci = Four Play

Para promocionar su nuevo bolso 4-in-1 ‘The Eldridge’, Donna Karan reclutó a la actriz Christina Ricci para ser la protagonista del corto al que llamaron “Four Play”.

El corto inspirado en la versatilidad del nuevo bolso, ilustra cuatro facetas diferentes de una mujer (Ricci) en una habitación de hotel: the dreamer, the expressionist, the paramour, and the voyeour. El corto refleja que una mujer puede tener varios estilos, y los puede exponer con una sola bag.

Como ven el bolso esta hermoso, si te interesa ver si el precio también, haz click aquí.
