The pictures for today’s look-of-the-day were taken from one of my trips to Santa Clara, Cuba (2008). This is an evening look that I wore to dinner and then to a patio jazz-bar of the resort. With the exception of the accessories, this entire outfit consists of Marciano garments. Generally, a lot of my vacation clothes are Marciano; probably because their style is appropriately loud and bright for the festive atmosphere of resorts and because I wouldn’t worry as much if I were to ruin or lose any of them. I’m obviously hesitant in bringing couture to a place where people get uncontrollably indulgent with mojitos.

I find that Marciano collections have gotten worse with time. Of course it’s possible that my own style is just changing but every time I walk into their stores, now a days, I can’t imagine wearing any of it. I find that the fabrics and designs of their older collections were more refined and unique. Marciano is becoming a little too mainstream and ‘hoochie’ for my liking.

What I’m wearing:

  • Silk top+ shorts + wedges by “Marciano”
  • Crystal necklace (bought at the market of La Paz, Mexico)
  • Chunky silver ring with a large crystal
