I can't help it. I see polka dots, and I need to try it. Shoes, skirts and dresses, but I also accept shirts and trousers, if you push me. What can I say, I love the theme!

Yes, yes, yes, it's very on trend...or rather too on trend the trend is over, but I am Spanish, a flamenco lover and therefore polka dots will forever be in my wardrobe. 

This particular dress I am wearing was a little obsession I had since Christmas last year...A little bit above my regular dress budget, but I just could not resist. Ideal for any occasion really; dressed up with heels, or dressed down with sneakers (my new favourite thing).

It's been a guest to a Greek wedding, and a tourist in the London streets. Can wait to see what her next destination will be.

The Unknown LIC

I think y'all know how much I love New York. It's been a long-time affair and the more I visit the Big Apple, the more I want to get to know her better. 

I love visiting my usual shops and restaurants. getting my bagel from Black Seed and my matcha fix from Cha Cha Matcha, not without stopping at the uber cool and girl power shop Bulletin. But hipster stereotypes aside, every time I am there I like to discover something different. That's what keeps things interesting, right? 

So, I decided to venture out and discover what I feel many New Yorkers don't even visit much: Long Island City, or LIC. It was surprising to see how empty most of it was on a Saturday morning! That, or everybody was still sleeping off their hangovers...Lucky them. 

In any case, while wandering the streets of this yet to be trendy spot, we encounter ourselves with Magic - A HUGE Cola sign. I must admit, I love Coca-cola. It's definitely one of my weaknesses, along with fries and ice-cream (seriously, such a healthy diet). Unfortunately the sign was for Pepsi-Cola, its eternal enemy, but nevertheless a great photo op we couldn't miss. 

Lolita #outfitrole ON, glasses and lips on point, and here we go! The weather nearly melt us along the way, but it was totes worth it.
