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.
5 accessories I wouldn’t mind at all this spring are sets of golden rings, pointy slippers, something studded (an-all-year-rounder!), a minimal clutch and round sunnies, and these are some of my favourites in store right now.
Set of golden rings by Balenciaga, iphone case by Saint Laurent Paris, slippers by Zara, ipad case by Acne and sunnies by Prism.
Ok, since I had enough of restless napping days at home waiting for my baby(!) I yesterday decided to do a little street style snapping at Burberry’s in Kensington Gardens where some of my favourite chic girls where parading around, Lena Perminova was one of them, in this perfect mix of high and low, a Burberry Prorsum peplum tweed jacket and skirt by H&M, bag by Analeena.
In case you didn’t know you’ll find Topshop Unique’s runway collection in selected stores and online right now, but some pieces are selling like hot bread so be aware. I’ve secured some of my favourite pieces myself that will be perfect for layered airy looks come spring, oh wonderful days ahead!
I’m a huge fan of strong fully eyebrows ala Cara Delivigne and Arizona Muse but most of us need a little help to achieve a fuller eye-brow-look even if we are careful pluckers. A favourite product of mine that last forever and doesn’t cost much is this fill-in-brow-powder by BareMinerals, easy to apply and perfect for a natural look. Brow Color £11, and Brow Brush £10.
I’m a jeans-shirt-girl at heart and I’m so missing my simple jeans looks, feels like ages ago!!! Well, I assure you I’ll jumping into a pair of perfect skinnies, a slightly unbuttoned silk blouse with rolled up sleeves, a little tuck, and killer heels as soon as I can, and wouldn’t mind any of these pieces to be included. With a long black coat over the shoulders or a duvet bomber I would have been ready to join fashion-month-circus! Btw, loving the silk shirt by H&M (£39.99) so much that I’ll probably get it now and save it for later.
I dont’ know why, but for some reason I find it almost impossible to find chic iphone 5 cases these days (did you hear that all brands out there!). And since I’m neither into rabbit ears nor funny dog faces, this printed case by Weston does the job for now for a reasonable price of £33. Bag by Acne.

Woop, woop, happy Monday morning!
I’ve been spending some time this weekend going through all spring collections again (!), and one of the ones I’m looking forward myself to hit stores soon is Unique’s chic, airy and sophisticated collection. It includes everything from graphic pieces, asymmetric dresses to all monochrome looks for a (little!) more affordable penny.
Nail polish favourites of mine right now are Essie’s nr.487 Berry Hard and Chanel’s old classic nr.18 Rouge Noir, both are perfect shades of deep burgundy with brown undertones and quite similar, but Essie’s slightly lighter which I don’t mind, also stay’s like a rock and half the price of Chanel.
I love super soft slogan jumpers that are perfect to cool-down something “too-pretty” or simply throw on with a pair of jeans with heels or relaxed boots. A favourite in my wardrobe is Brian Lichtenberg’s Homies above, but I wouldn’t mind adding any of these others to my little slogan collection as well.
Woop woop, I’m back in London and jumped straight into my heels this morning when I joined a fabulous group of women at Tod’s Christmas lunch at 5 Hertford Street. I wore my new stripey viscose blouse from Zara (a real budget bargain!), a new pair of velvet skinnies by J Brand (maternity-fantastic!), my beloved Agnes by Jimmy Choo, signature bag by Tod’s and a new golden coin bracelet by Monica Vinader (coins are my latest crush!). Now getting ready for next event, wishing you all a fabulous eve too!
Guess if I turned a little starstruck yesterday when Grace Coddington signed my latest book addition, her autobiography “A Memoir” at Browns Fashion. She’s such a talented graceful beautiful woman that I have my deepest respect for and I cannot wait to dig into this gorgeous book during my Christmas-days-off.
This morning I enjoyed looking through my new beautiful Kate book while sipping to a cup of ginger-mint-tea with fennel and lemon, a new obsession of mine(!), the tea I mean.
If you already are the owner of the book (if not you’ll find it here), and perhaps would like to meet Kate in person, then you can bring it with you tomorrow the 15′th (between 5pm and 7pm), to Marc Jacob’s Bookmarc store in Mayfair and have it signed. If you’re not queueing up for yourself it would sure make a great Christmas gift to a fashion loving friend…….
