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…….
As you may know I moved into my new flat in London about 6 months ago, leaving the Leicester Square buzz behind. You should think 6 months is enough to get settled furniture and interior-wise, but it feels like there’s still a long way to go. These beauties however would help me one step closer to that homy feeling I’m trying to achieve.
Yesterday I had a closer look on the highly anticipated MMM for H&M collab that will hit stores in a couple of weeks. I have to admit I’ve been kind of sceptic to the final result ever since the collaboration was announced, simply cause I didn’t see how the usual great Margiela quality would translate into highstreet prices. Well, scepticism aside, the collection is great, in fact my favourite H&M collab so far, and the fabrics are absolutely approved.
Overall the collection is quite voluminous and oversized which is right up my alley, but certain pieces like the oversized (and one sized!) woolcoat for instance, sizes quite big, and I felt a little drowned in it with my 5ft’8in. However, it’s still one of my favourite pieces along with the blue turtle knit, and wide leg suit…..and many other beautiful things both in the women and men’s(!) collection.
Well hello there, if the freshly released campaign images of the collaboration Maison Martin Margiela + H&M are anything to go by I say hurray!!!!! The images photographed by Sam Taylor-Johnson are absolutely stunning and the pieces looks fantastic, those coats are officially on my wishlist, so I cannot wait to feel the fabrics up close.
The collection will be available in stores and online on November 15th.

I’ve hardly bothered to stop by Zara lately, reason? Cause I find it quite off-putting when I see straight off copycat collections and pieces in the shelves. Don’t get me wrong, I really love the highstreet, and do understand that they take inspiration in trend forecasts based on designers collections, but sometimes they just take it too far. However, today I’ll give Zara another go, as there are some promising pieces in their October lookbook, how about that oversized leather jacket for instance?
