Holzweiler – The perfect scarf?

Holzweiler wool & cashmere scarves

I’ve always been on the hunt for the perfect chunky scarf that has the soft cashmere touch but still has enough hold not to fall flat around the neck. Well, I’ve found them in my motherland Norway, by Holzweiler Agency, blends of wool and cashmere, made in Italy, and comes in a range of sizes, prints and and colours, in the pocket friendly price range of €109-€135. I’ll start wrapping mine over my shoulders with a belt ala Burberry as soon as temperatures allow it, yum!

Ryan Storer

I’m personally a big fan of Ryan Storer’s new collection which involves clean, bold, yet understated pieces with Swarovski pearls. Fine jewellery really is peaking at the moment, which also goes for their amounts of carats and price tags, but these pieces come more pocket friendly for sure. This Rhodium earring for instance is yours for £160 and you’ll find it here.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Who would have thought, Anna Wintour is a sport, and along with so many others accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge, to support the ALS’s fund-raising that has gone viral this week. After being challenged by Gisele Bundchen and her own daughter Bee Shaffer, Wintour further on challenged Roger Federer and Dominic West, go Anna!

Altuzarra for Target Collection

Great news for your wallets ahoy! Joseph Altuzarra has teamed up with the US high-street chain Target with a capsule collection including some sleek, feminine, tailored Altuzarra pieces and accessories that oozes power, starting from £25. My bet this collection will fly, available on Net-a-Porter in September.

If there’s one accessory I’ve been searching high and low for for months is the perfect single statement earring, as seen on Celine’s A/W 14-15 show back in March. These specimen above by Louis Vuitton and Celine tick all the boxes, and would possible dig deep holes in your pockets too, but wanted oh yes!

Earthy colours

Picks 10.08.2014

I don’t know about you, but I find myself drawn towards everything but loud colours and screamy prints these days. Right now I wouldn’t mind adding more earthy tones to my wardrobe, and these are perfect elements for transitional dressing coming up soon.

August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.

Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.
Check out my latest collaboration with Monica Vinader here where I’m lined up with North-East-West and Central London girls.

Being a knit-kinda-girl I’m super excited about all the fabulous knit options and statement pieces that will rule this coming fall and winter. Can we ever get enough of oversized long-sleeved soft turtlenecks, me think not, and I’m more than tempted to go for an all knitted set too, yum!

Yes please…

picks 19.06.2014

We’ve got high summer ahead of us, but instead of focusing on great summery sales bargains I’m rather eyeing new season’s drops in stores, and everything transitional pre-fall. A girl gotta think ahead and for me hounds-tooth it is, along with these other picks that could carry me through summer too!
