VivaLaModa issue #3!  

3 comentarios

One of the reasons I have been so busy is the editing of VivaLaModa! It was finally published online at beginning of May and so far got really great reviews! =)

So... the new issue of VivaLaModa (the handmade fashion online zine) is out!!!

You can read it here:

This third issue has 104 pages full of goodies picked by 24 collaborators.
As always, it mainly focuses on handmade & vintage items, and anything related with them, this time with a special take on the wedding season with two big articles: A Vegas Wedding with vintage dresses, and Unique Wedding with custom made gowns.

I specially love the designer spotlight (this issue the designer interviewed is Kate Towers, also on the cover), Get Joan's look (the sexy secretary at Mad Men... who doesn't just adore that show?) and Top 10 fashion items (a collection of 10 items every woman should have in her wardrobe!).

I really hope you like it! Don't forget to check the amazing collaborators and advertisers that made this magazine idea a real thing.

If anyone wants to spread the word about the magazine, you can grab a banner at:

Monday Giveaway - Vintage velvet dress  

42 comentarios

Monday giveaway... well.. Tuesday Giveaway! lol

This week: Vintage velvet dress by peaceandloveck
Wow, I definitely adore this dress! Seriously! It is a relaxed-night-out-but-in-a-party-mood dress, what else could you ask for? And it fits S/M/L, yay! =)

This dress is the epitome of rocker-edgy vintage style. It has a front exposed zipper, a front v-neck, two 'hidden' pockets, a velvet exterior, and it is dark purple; need I say more? This dress would look great with a pair of ripped black tights and doc martens. I'm getting goosebumps already.

size on tag: 7/8
est. size: small/medium/large(great both as slouchy look and fitted look)
fabric: 100% cotton
color: dark royal purple
condition: amazing vintage - perfect!
