Pin Up your style!

by Be-Blogger España on: Marzo 26th, 2012

No podía haber elegido un mejor tema para mi primer post como Blogger Oficial de Benetton para España, su nueva colección de Jerseys Pin Up! Pero antes de eso, dejad que me presente: soy Cynthia y estoy detrás del blog de estilo personal The Lithium Girl. Estoy muy contenta por empezar esta nueva aventura y formar parte de la familia United Blogs of Benetton.

Y una vez hechas las presentaciones, vayamos a lo importante: Hablemos de las chicas Pin Up y todo lo que las rodea… Colores pastel, formas suaves que realzan lo mejor de cada chica…¿es eso posible en una sola prenda? Por lo visto si, y me he quedado maravillada cuando lo he visto. No puedo esperar a probármelos y jugar a ser una de las chicas de su nueva campaña. La colección Pin Up incluye camisetas de manga larga o sin mangas con amplio escote y por supuesto, un básico como es el cárdigan. Todo realizado en un fresco y ligero algodón. Si pensamos en aquellas chicas Pin Up de los 50 lo primero que viene a nuestra cabeza son chicas seguras de su cuerpo, de sus formas, y que sabian vestir de manera adecuada para potenciarlo. Esa es la esencia que Benetton ha capturado en su campaña y en sus prendas.

Os enseño además el exclusivo vídeo donde podréis ver como se desarrolló la sesión de fotos de la campaña.

Y es que, ¿Quien puede resisitirse a la feminidad de las chicas Pin Up? ¿Te apuntas?

 Go comfortable to sales

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Julio 1st, 2010

Sales have just landed in Madrid and I’m full of happiness thinking what new things I’m going to buy in my favourite shops and brands stores.
I have a list larger than Santa Claus‘s wishlist. I live at a 4th floor but it could touch down the street…
The bad thing is I’ll have to decide along this list what I want more and leave the rest for another occassion.

Sales are great, but we have to be ready. You need to dress like if you were going to a war, because you’ll have to look for clothes on shelves and racks on stores full of people and I’m not made of iron… I will get tired.
To the end of the day, after a long sales journey, I’m like a sport woman just arrived from the gym. It’s really important to wear comfortable.

The main point is feeling comfortable. Nothing of strained looks that are uncomfortable to stand with for a long time. A normal sweater is valid for a day. Better if it’s thinner, and it will look great combined with shorts.

Don’t think about heels, erase this idea from your mind. Leave them at home. Heels are uncomfortable. It’s better to go with a beautiful flat shoe, like a dancer shoe, nautical shoe or similar models. I love buckskin shoes, with tassels on the front and a attractive manly look.

We have to insist again on the thinner clothes we have on our wardrobes. Nothing can disturb you when you’re looking for clothes or when you’re in the fitting room.

A nice boilersuit with flowers printings will solve the problem of pulling off thousand of layers of clothes to prove a dress or a jeans. Better with less things. We lose less time. But a thin cardigan will be ok if the air conditioning of the stores is high.

And if we want to go comfortable and fashionable at the same time, we can choose a Victorian style shoes, simply, basic, that will avoid any inconvenience during all the day. A modern look combining it is our personal key. I like being striking.

 Bye bye squares, hello stripes

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 28th, 2010

I always feel sad when I have to say goodbye to some clothes of my wardrobe. Specially those I use to wear day by day and I like the most because they bring back to me memories of past days. But it is hopeless, always arrives the moment to renew the wardrobe because some clothes are out of date.

After almost two years with squares as the trend on my style and wardrobe, it is time to renew and say welcome to stripes. Stripes are the new print, they are everywhere and if you’ve never seen them, you’re living in a different world far away from this.

With stripes I get more sophisticated styles, and my friends have seen the real change. Before I was wearing more casual and now stripes get me dressed with other clothes, even with a trench I had forgotten on my wardrobe and I didn’t use to wear because I thought it didn’t combine with anything. Stripes make more stylish looks. They look really good to be basic…

Before I preferred rock and rebel looks. Looks with plaid shirts and tshirts of my favourite groups. I had all, from Sex Pistols to Ramones, I loved them, I went to all of their concerts really fashionable and my groups were always with me.

I have seen that I could get this style with stripes, but it is more sophisticated. I left my music tshirts to have short dresses combines with fit jeans and high heel boots. Black and white coloured stripes, my favourite colours.

So… I’m sad to say goodbye to the squares on my wardrobe, but I’m sure they will be back in a few seasons because they never get out of date.

Everything in fashion is cyclic, today are stripes, tomorrow spots and then… let’s see.
