The Shorts

Image No me gusta el favoritismo, y aunque a todas las prendas en mi clóset les tengo cierto cariño, tengo que decirlo: estos shorts son de mis preferidos.

No conozco otra pieza que le inyecte vida a un atuendo sin querer llevarse el show entero. A pesar de que sobresalen (Gracias a la textura de tapete y la combinación de colores), saben complementar perfectamente. Y me llueven tantas preguntas acerca de donde las conseguí que quisiera tener algo un poco mas interesante o exótico que decir (Oaxaca? Chiapas? Morocco? Tailandia? Ya me fui...!) que “Melrose”. Ahora que lo recuerdo, las compré hace mas de 2 años ya... Tengo que regresar para ver si esa tiendita todavía existe!


There is definitely a special place in my heart for all my clothes, and I’m not big on favoritism. With that said, I must admit: these have got to be my favorite shorts. I don’t know of another piece that injects zest into an outfit without wanting to steal the entire show. Despite the fact that they stand out (thanks to their rug-like texture and bold colors), they somehow manage to know how to complement perfectly. I get asked where I got them so often that I wish I had something more interesting or exotic to say (Oaxaca? Chiapas? Morocco? Thailand? Ok, that was out there!) than “Melrose”. Come to think of it, I haven’t been back to that store since the day I bought these over 2 years ago... Gotta go back to see if the place still exists!
