I was talking to this friend the other day as we were about to watch (re-watch for me) a series called Skins. The first season aired on 2007 and, funnily enough, we both agreed that the early 00's don't feel as far ago as the 90s but; in reality, ten years have passed since 2007, that's crazy. Movies like Harry Potter are 16 years old! It's so weird watching "old" shows and only realising they're old because of things like cell phones or computers; if you manage to remove those elements, they still feel current, the world hasn't changed that much if you ignore technology improvements. 

But that's the thing, you can't ignore that. So many things are different now, so many things have become retro now because we have much modern options to choose from; for instance, online shopping is taking the world by storm and/or social media is one of many people's go tos as soon as they wake up (take it from a guy that can wake up, check social media and go back to sleep). It's up to us to make the best usage of these new tools and have fun with them. This post is a collaboration I did with Stradivarius and they're newly launched menswear line; I received a promo code to order online (which gave me the whole shopping experience thing) and I chose a couple pieces featured in this outfit.

I'm a huge fan of shopping and I love online shopping as much as I enjoy going to the stores but, for some reason, online shopping feels a bit more special, maybe it has to do with receiving the package and feeling it's like a Christmas present, haha. The quality of Stradivarius' clothing is really similar to Pull & Bear and I really like that; design-wise, they're pieces are a bit safe but I'm hoping they change that and reach certain similarity to the women's collections. Other than that, I was pretty pleased with my shopping experience, shipping was really fast and since I already know my Inditex sizes, I didn't have any trouble with the fit of the garments.

// El otro día estaba platicando con un amigo, íbamos a ver (para mí ver otra vez) una serie llamada Skins. La primera temporada salió en 2007 y, curiosamente, ambos estuvimos de acuerdo que los dos miles no se sienten tan lejanos como los 90s pero; en realidad, han pasado 10 años desde 2007, es una locura. ¡Películas como Harry Potter tienen 16 años! Es tan raro ver shows "viejos" y sólo darte cuenta que son viejos por cosas como celulares o computadoras; si lográramos quitar esos elementos, aún se sentirían actuales, el mundo no ha cambiado tanto si ignoramos los avances tecnológicos.

Pero ahí está la cosa, no puedes ignorar eso. Tantas cosas son diferentes ahora, tantas cosas se han vuelto retro ahora porque tenemos muchas más opciones modernas para elegir; por ejemplo, comprar en línea es algo que está sucediendo en todos lados y/o redes sociales, la gente las ve tan pronto se despierta (yo soy uno de los que pueden despertar, checar redes y volver a dormir). Está en nosotros hacer el mejor uso de estas nuevas herramientas y divertirnos con ellas. Este post es una colaboración que hice con Stradivarius y su nueva línea de hombre; recibí un código promocional para pedir online (eso me dio toda la experiencia real de compra) y elegí un par de piezas que pueden ver en este atuendo.

Soy gran fan de comprar y amo comprar en línea casi tanto como disfruto ir a las tiendas pero, por alguna razón, comprar en línea se siente un poquito más especial, quizá tiene que ver con recibir el paquete y sentir que es casi como un regalo de Navidad, jaja. La calidad de la ropa en Stradivarius es muy similar a Pull & Bear y eso me gusta; en cuanto a diseño, las piezas son un poco seguras pero espero que eso cambie y lleguen a ser más similares a las colecciones de mujer. Quitando eso, estuve muy satisfecho con mi experiencia de compra, el envío fue súper rápido y como ya conozco bien mis tallas Inditex, no tuve problema con el talle de la ropa.
