I love my leather wallets by Neri Karra and I’ve got this two coloured one to give away to one of you readers. All you need to do is comment on this post, no motivation needed, as I’ll pick a “winner ” randomly. You can comment until Friday 16′th when I will announce a winner, enterings worldwide are accepted, good luck you all!!!
Like many out there I find Coco Chanel almost obsessively fascinating, everything from her life story, controvercy, style and heritage. And I will certainly head over to London College of Fashion between 5th of September to November 16 to feed my curiosity a little more, where 5 portraits of Coco Chanel painted by Californian artist Marion Pike will be exhibited. The exhibition will explore the friendship between the artist and Coco, and alongside paintings, Chanel garments worn by the Pike will also be displayed.
As you may know already through my posts I’m quite a fan of Monica Vinader’s jewellery, and since I first walked into the store on South Molton street and got myself an engraved bracelet, I’ve been hooked. I think the idea of having jewellery engraved (Make it Your Own!) makes it all so much more personal, along with the “stacking principle” of Monica’s lines which I also love.
Needless to say that I was thrilled to be approached by the brand to host this event above and a joint reader competition, something I feel very excited about, and which feels like the most natural thing as I’m already such a fan of Monica’s jewellery. I’m therefore pleased to invite all of you lovely readers to come along to an exclusive 20% off shopping evening on the 18th of July. No need to miss out on this offer if you’re not based in London. We are giving my readers 20% to redeem on the Monica Vinader website on the night of the event. Just enter the code cited on the invitation.
1. Tell us what you would have engraved on your Ava Bracelet and why by either

I will be in the store on South Molton Street on the day where I will select the winner of the competition where everyone is eligible to enter worldwide, so what are you waiting for? I hope as many of you will make it on the night and join me for shopping, chats, styling, fun, champagne and Scandinavian canapés!
Celine fall 13-14, images style.com
If you are waiting for images from Phoebe Philo’s Resort 2014 collection to drop at style.com or other sites then please don’t hold your breath. According to WWD the Céline house has decided to “do-a-Tom Ford” and keep images of the new collection under wrap for now. And we may all wonder why, or perhaps not (read Zara?).
Meanwhile, we’ve always the fall collection to dream about, the pale knee length skirts, voluminous tops and checked coats for instance, meow…
Ok, so it is, Isabel Marant for H&M is confirmed the latest collaboration out there. Not really sure if I’m feeling much to be honest, it feels like we’ve seen Marant’ish stuff on the highstreet already, but you can be sure of a digital explosion worldwide of product images until the collection will launch 14th of November.
If you’re a fan like me of Topshop’s Unique line then you’re probably too will welcome the launch of Unique’s first pre-fall and resort collections. Personally I tend to like capsule collections more than the mains and judging by what I’ve seen it looks quite promising in this case too. The pre-fall 2013 collection which include silky tailored pieces and accessories (with a Celine’ish feel) lands in stores and online today.
I’m a huge fan of my friend and talented designer Noor Fares fierce fine jewellery, and her hot galactic A/W collection includes loads of mouth watering pieces with the perfect balance of lines, beauty and rawness, not to mention a few juicy carats of diamonds(!). If you got some deep pockets and want to lay your hands on any of these exclusive beauties you can pre-order her A/W 2013 collection here right now until 26th of April.

A girl right up my street, who’s certainly gifted with a lovely attitude, style and writing skills, blogger Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller, has written her first book. I will for sure lay my hands on it and expect nothing less than hilarious content. The book ‘Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.’ can be pre-ordered on Amazon, release date 10′th of September.
If I wasn’t home in London right now waiting impatiently for this baby to arrive(!) I would have been in Milan with my Tod’s girls Martha, Carolina and Noor for the book launch of Timeless Icon, and also had the chance to meet Tod’s new creative director (announced this week), former creative director at Valentino, Alessandra Facchinetti.
Wishing I was with you beautiful bright ladies, but next time I will for sure!
Note the smashing python shoulder bags, they are my favourite pieces in Tod’s SS13 collection.
