We are still in New York having an amazing time and planning new content for you. Today I have the second 4 days (day 5, 6, 7 and 8) of my stay in the city. Come with me to the highlights of The Bronx and Queens, to see the new Tommy x Gigi collection, The Atomics performing during the HM Loves Coachella event, and the honor of seeing Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard. You will also see Times Square, a short snow, and Saint Patricks Day parade on 5th Avenue where you will also see the new Dior window at Saks. Are you ready to watch the video?

Day 6 - 15/03
Alsp know as the day after the snow storm. We had booked a tour to The Bronx and Queens so we had no other choice than to go. We first went to The Bronx, hometown to famous designers like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. There we saw the Yankees Stadium, some murals. moving to Queens where we saw the Mets stadium, the stadium where th US Open takes place and the Unisphere. The snow didn't allow us to do much exploring, but at least we could see something.

Day 6 - 16/03
Also know as the coolest day ever! We started the day visiting the Tommy Hilfiger store on 5th Avenue where we got to explore the Tommy x Gigi collection. Around 4 pm we went to the HM loves Coachella presentation where I ended up meeting The Atomics and saw them perform. (read more about it here) At night we saw magic happen on Broadway at the musical Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close.

Day 7 - 17/03
A,sonknow as Saint Patrocks day. It was a quiet day fpr me, I just wemnt to Saint Patricks parade on 5th Avenue where students, members of the defense and Irish descendant played typical muaic and marched. I opted to leave behen de typical green and went for a top with snakes (St Patricks is beleived to be the one who expulsed the snakes from Ireleand).

Day 8 - 18/03
Also known as the day the snow almost came back. We simple walked around Times Square whivh of course was crouded. In the afternoon we went to 5th Avenue to see some windows, and that was when Saks called my attention. Their new Dior display has clothes, videos and a loud music that makes you turn your jead.

My HM Studio Outfit

A few posts ago I wrote about the new HM Studio S/S 2017 collection that was already available to shop. You can read more about it here. Today, I'm showing you an outfit from the collection. I'm wearing a cream dress with details in broderie and a frunce at the waist. It also has a big collar and bell sleeves. The dress is part of the baroque romantic side of the collection. I also added a pair of rings with an  oriental drawing in black and hot orange. 
When I saw the dress on the runway I could say it was not hard to pick a favourite. I saw it in store and I didn't doubt it. For those who don't like dresses, there's a blouse and a pair of shorts with the same style.

HM loves Coachella - The Atomics

If you follow me on Instagram ( @ornelga) you already know I'm in New York and having a lot of fun. For example, last Thursday I went to the H&M presentation of it's Coachella collection at the Time's Square store. The Atomics, a band formed by the Smith siblings, are the face of the campaign and will also be performing at the festival. So, they were invited to perform there. I'll proceed to tell you how I got to meet Lucky, Daisy, Starlie, and Pyper. I arrived to the store a few minutes before the scheduled time and looked at the collection. Meanwhile I was given a bag with goodies and when I tried to enter the concert are they asked me if I won... Yes, I was clueless I could win... win what? So they checked my bag and found out I won a meed and greet with the band!!!! I was so surprised and asked when did it take place and they told me "now", come with us! So I met other people who and then each of us took a picture with the band. I need to say this, the organisation was beyond perfect. They even took the picture for you and it looked quite good!  The band was very chill and friendly too. I then looked out for my mom who told me "don't take to long". Sorry Mom, there comes the concert. Afterwards, the band performed a few songs, including their new single "Voulez Vous" and the campaign song "Let's live for Today".
Now, let's move on to fashion. HM has been doing this special collection for a few years now and it  sets the festival trends for the season. What called my attention the most were the colors. For the first time I see pastel pink as the main color of the collection. There are t-shirts, a body and a transparent pleated skirt. I took a great idea from Pyper who wore it over black tights. Things are spiced up a bit with metallic, as seen on jackets and a body. Black is still present in indie drawings and a bodysuit I'm not particularly in love with, but Starlie rocked it anyways. Online I found a slip dress in a light blue shade with  a black lace detail that I haven't seen in store. I'm mentioning it because I love slip dresses. Finally comes denim. There's no festival without jeans, right? First there's a set of a skirt and jacket with a floral embroidery. Everything with embroidery is trendy so you should take notice of this set. There's also a pair of boyfriend jeans with a star detail on each knee and a pair of shorts with the same motif. As regards accessories, I haven't seen any in store, but there are black chokers, blue or pink lenses sunglasses and star shaped earrings and hair pins.
