Adriana Gastélum

Mexican born and raised, living in the wonderful city of Barcelona, Spain since October 2014 and loving it. I have a Graphic Design degree at UABC but I do full-time blogging.

I started Fake Leather almost five years ago on a Christmas Eve on 2010 because I was bored of my university classes and I wanted a place to talk about my interest for fashion. Since then I’ve had the opportunity to work with brands like: Salvatore Ferragamo, Coach, Vogue México, L’Oreal, GAP, Forever21, Ivanka Trump, GuessTopshop, Levi’s, Hoss Intropia, CoverGirl and many more.

I’m not the kind of girl who knows all the designers or every single collection, I just know I love clothes and I love to mix and match designer pieces with affordable ones. Still, I like to introduce high-quality, chic yet wearable outfits in Fake Leather with beautiful photography and a few tips on food, lifestyle, beauty and every other little passion I have. The photographer is my talented boyfriend Grg Mrkt, but he actually works as an architect.

  3. Dear Adriana,
    Your new layout looks so serene and professional, I really love it! Your images have such a great quality and I’m in love with your style.
    I have a question I hope you can help me… I was scrolling through your posts and I saw that some of your images have a text on it with a link and I think it looks amazing. I was wondering how did you do that? Hope hearing from you soon! Love

    • Hi Lemiza! So happy that you like the new layout :)
      The text with link it’s a div inside a div, I change the margin size for the second div and I use the absolute position with CSS to show it on top of the image :) it’s just basic CSS and HTML.
