Any old followers of my blog here? If you are, you might remember my style icons posts. I used to chose one of my favorite stylish chick out there each month and create a post full of outfits she wore throught the past year. For this first edition on the new version of my blog, I revamped my old post about Barbara Martelo, adding a few more recent outfits because she's definetly one of my favorite stylist ever! I love how femine and classy she always looks.
Ok, this outfit is just perfect! The little black dress is a must have. Every girl should own her LBD, the one that fits her like a glove and will make her shine despite the black color. I personally still on the hunt for mine. Just saying!
A little introduction for those of you who don't know her. She's a spanish stylist who started her career as a stylist at Telva Magazine. She was a part of Vogue Spain team, and then become a freelance stylist. She's still published for Vogue Spain and is sometimes featured in El Pais which is one of the most famous magazine in Spain.
If I could, I would steal every single pieces of her closet, especially her shoes. I mean she's owning the most perfect shoe collection ever. From Alaia to Balenciaga, she's having the best world designer at her feet every time she's going out. Booties, sandals, over knees boots, she's definetly the queen of black shoes!
In love with this outfit once again, the shoes are just THE perfect stilettos. And I love the simplicity of the top mixed with the leather skirt. Barbara is the queen when it comes to monochromatic outfits! How come? She knows how to mix textures to give some dimension to her looks!
Some of you might know her from her collab with Mango two winters ago. She picked and put together a few pieces from their fall/winter12 collection and created a couple of outfits. These looks were all kinda affordable and really on trend. Feminine and classy, perfect reflection of what she is.
And here this heavy post finally come to an end. I hope you guys like this post and that it could inspire you! Let me know if you like Barbara Martelo's style and who are your style inspirations in the comments! I hope you're all having an amazing week so far! Also a beauty post is coming soon! Reviewing something for Rimmel this time!
