For the first time, and with hand in hand with BETWEEN PARALLELS ASSOCIATION, daniela ponto final will make part of the exhibitors at MODTISSIMO PORTUGAL!
FROM 7TH TO 8TH OCTOBER 2021!
Can't wait to meet you there! :)
Sunday morning, again that strange melancholy between summer and autumn, and today the antique fair was in Ovar!
I guess I'm lucky, every Sunday happens an antique fair in very close cities to mine and, as usual, we visited another one. Also, we found treasures other people didn't want anymore, but they were just perfect for us!
Gonçalo didn't visit Ovar for a while, so we decided to take a walk and it was very pleasant to see how arranged it was!
Actually, he changed his mind about Ovar; very nice little streets and lovely tiles collections all over the facades.
Sometimes people asked me about where and how do I get my inspiration from, the patchwork and crazy colors combo... for me, they're not so crazy and as you can see, inspiration is all around, everywhere, in every little detail!
And portuguese tiles... we're so lucky to be abble to appreciate them just around the corner! :)
HOW'S YOUR SUNDAY?
This DANIELA'SHIRT EDITION is special, more than the latests, because represents a restart.
A new breath of hope!
To believe that if we work hard, if we love what we do and give our best to do it well, everything will worth it and the universe made a great plan for us too :)
FROM 17TH TO 19TH will be intruduced at MOMAD - IFEMA MADRID, represented by BETWEEN PARALLELS ASSOCIATION!
DANIELA'SHIRT EDITION is an unissex shirt line that recovers old fabrics and from past collections, combining them with newer materials, on a young, relaxed and irreverent suggestion of limited reproduction.
DANIELA'SHIRT is more than a piece to wear. It is Daniela . Over.

Is it only me feeling that summer is already saying goodbye, even though today was such a hot day?
Days are getting smaller, light is more warm and trees release their leaves that start dancing more and more in the air, moving in circles while they fall and then touch the floor... Mom already started to do jams and we just can't resist them with some cheese and a few rusks, with a Porto wine glass after dinner!
Guess Autumn is right here, isn't it?
Yesterday, mom gave me some figs from her backyard and must say I just looooove all the fruits and vegetebles from there! They're not always pretty or have the best shape, but they have the best smell and the best taste ever!
Do you see this huge smile on my face? I assure you, my tummy smiled even more!
Today was the first Sunday of September and it usually happens the Antique Fair in Espinho, a little beach town, near my hometown.
Not being a novelty that I use to visit and actually find and buy some material to work, today I found other precious treasures, but this time, for me! And I didn't even spent 10€ fot the three books and for the pair of boots! And the boots are brand new! Can you believe it?
I must confess I have a kind of disorder consumption (I will call it that way), but I love shoes! Yup, I do! Knowing it's not a good exemple, I try to excuse myself by purshasing vintage or second hand shoes. Most of my shoes are second hand, as are my clothes (when they're not daniela ponto final :) ), as are my books, another of my love affairs. I love to read. Read and imagine and let myself travel in the stories the author is telling me.
Right now, I'm reading José Cardoso Pires and his "A República dos Corvos" (1989), started a couple of days ago and I'm really enjoying it, it's the first time I'me reading him.
HOW WAS YOUR SUNDAY? :)
HEY!!! IT IS TIME FOR NOVATA!!!
Few days ago, I shared with you on the instagram account ( @adanielapomyofinal) a new shirt I've made for Gonçalo, have you check it?
Well, as I told you, when I bought the fabrics I wasn't able to really imagine a new shirt or any other piece of clothe for anybody.
I was so tired, my mental health was actually more fragile than I thought and talking with mom, she made me realise that I needed help, so I started to do therapy. Even though I believe there is nothing wrong to ask for help when we're not in our best shape, it was very hard for me to accept and assume I wasn't ok and it was compromising my work and my personal life.
I don't want to be speaking and using the pandemic as an excuse all the time, because it is not, but the truth is I am someone that has a tendecy for depression.
I'm not always depressive... my therapist told me I was a very creative and sensitive person; these, plus my "normal" anxiety, being always worried about with everything and everybody (I have serious problems to feel relaxed), plus this new reality we were living, all this huge equation was even more hard for me to deal with... and fuck it, it really was!
I was about to give up of everything this year!
Fortunatelly, I have my super power wonderful mom and my litle sister and Gonçalo, and here I am, moving on, starting again :)
So, let me introduce you "NOVATA"!
"Novata" means something new; and this will be a kind of even more limited edition of daniela ponto final pieces, like this DANIELA'SHIRT I've made for Gonçalo.
He loved it! What about you?
I still can reproduce ONLY 2 MORE SHIRTS like this one. Click on the image and go check it! Don't forget, email to email@example.com for more information and even to place your order :)
HOW'S YOUR SUNDAY?
It's been a while since my last post here!
Honestly, I never really gave the importance to this space that it deserves!
I want to share with you more about my routines, the things I love to do, the treasures I found, the stories I listen and I think it would be nice you to know, the people that inspire me, more about the way I work, how things hapen, more about my "universe" so you can understand why it is so special for me when you chose to wear and say " é daniela ponto final!"
I believe details make the difference, so we if we still can see them and feel touched by them, that's because we're just not one more in the crowd. Do you agree with me?
You probably already know that I love fresh flowers, but if we're meeting for the first time, yup, buying fresh flowers in local markets is one of my favorite things to do! Yes!
I use to visit Lady Lurdes shop (Casa Jasmin - Flores e Plantas Lda), one of my home town (São João da Madeira) flourists, and even though we still have to wear masks, I believe she is the Miss Simpathy from the neighborhood! She smiles with her eyes and her warm and soft voice seems to hug us when she delivers the flowers and thanks for the visit.
Lady Lurdes and her flowers always make me smile!
Let's start this together? :)
é daniela, ponto final!
2020 was such a hard year! Since I can remember, it was the most emotional, mental and also phisycal difficult and strange months of my life as Daniela and as daniela ponto final!
We're in the middle of 2021 and it seems to be an extension of the past year!
Despite this, I feel these six months just runned away so, so so fast! Don't you feel the same?
I've been dedicating myself to new experiences and projects that luckely I was and still am involved that link fashion (the slow one) with social and well being impacts in my local community.
To say the truth, never thought my journey could ever pass by this trail. But I am just LOVING IT!
I am also trying to (and I will!) finish my Master Degree this year, and this is another reason why you don't see new pieces in here for a while. BUT, it doesn't mean I'm not doing nothing or that daniela ponto final doesn't exist anymore. NOP!
Sometimes, it is need a break to clear the mind, rethink and restart! :)
Anyway, you still can buy the available products in here, find some also at CRU-LOJA and Virgínia will nicely help you to find the new goodies of teh brand and also check and get in touch by the instagram account @adanielapontofinal and sometimes I am also by the facebook page, but email me to firstname.lastname@example.org, promise to return ASAP! ;)
