My “shoe-regret” this season was never laying my hands on a pair of Laurence Dacade leather boots, perfectness! However this patchwork version is pretty hot as well, but requires a deep pocket dig I’m afraid, yours for £690, eek!
Who’s not in on comfy dressing? Well, I am for sure, and I raise my hand for monchrome dressing too! Totally fell in love with this new set while trying it on (in blue), and I can’t wait to wear it out for drinks paired with heels or with slippers for a chilling look, hereby my picks of the week in stores, by Stella McCartney Resort and the trousers and blouse come as separates.
Add Norwegian jewellery brand Tom Wood on your radar if you haven’t already. Lust-worthy (!), timeless, solid, unisex rings in sterling silver, gold and quality gemstones (no platings in sight!), are my favourites, but the line also includes necklaces and earpieces, all with an androgynous feel.
Nipple balm aka Lanolin for your lips? (Breastfeeding flashbacks anyone?) Best balm I’ve ever tried for chapped lips and works on everything from dry skin areas, cuticles to a make-up booster. 100% pure medical grade Lanolin, fragrance free and worth every penny. Dr. Lipp is yours for £11.50 and you’ll find it here.
Leave it to Vogue Paris editorials to inspire with trends and pieces you never realised you actually wanted, wide legged avant garde belted trousers likes these for instance, not to mention yet new “Birkenstock-inspired-versions”, well, we can blame Phoebe Philo for the latter.
Ok, I’m not the greatest fan of “in-your-face-logos”, neither have I ever been in love with “The Boy”. However, sometimes the unexpected do happen, and when I tried on this little hybrid youngster i soft pink (imagine!), I was tempted not to put him back on the shelf. Lord!
One of the magazines always glittering up my coffee table is Acne Paper. The 15′th issue that was released last week is a tribute to some of the greatest actresses of our time and includes portraits, interviews, illustrations and tributes to the likes of Greta Garbo, Isabella Rosselini, Liv Ullman, Robin Wright, Jessica Lange, Vanessa Redgrave, Meryl Streep, and the list goes on.
Yesterday I joined Roger Vivier for the celebration of their brand new London boutique at Selfridges. To celebrate the launch of the new boutique Creative Director Bruno Frisoni has created a limited edition version of the classic Virgule “comma heel’, a punk’ish tartan printed beauty, exclusively at Selfridges, yummy!
At fashion weeks you can be certain that some of your favourite in season pieces will be popping up on someone else’s shoulders, hands and feet, and if not it’s certainly the right place to be to pick up some inspiration or two.
- Elena Perminova, hand over those Repossi rings (here and here) please!
- I could definitely make room for this Prismick bag by Roger Vivier.
- The Proenza Schouler jacket and open toe mules, oh yes!!!
- I don’t think I ever could get tired of denim overalls.
- Chunky knit-perfection in what looks like Celine!
- This woman, this eagle silk shirt by Stella McCartney (here and here)
- I’m obsessed with marble prints and that this top by Balenciaga (similar here) included.
- And just like that I want to fray my jeans too and wouldn’t mind pairing them with Nicholas Kirkwood beauties.
Good morning, it’s a beautiful sunny day with a tiny little tint of fall, and a perfect day of going pale. I’m heading out for meetings and wouldn’t mind jumping into this look as we speak, unfortunately there are no white denims in reachable sight, neither a light coloured coat when thinking of it, aah!
Fashion month is over and one of the highlights on my side was Tod’s first ever ready-to-wear-collection which include fantastic pieces that are certainly ready-to-be worn. Add laser cut pieces, in leather that looks like cotton and vice verse, cropped pants suits and shirt dresses, footwear with chunky golden buckles and long fringes, signed Alessandra Facchinetti for Tod’s, on your wish list come spring. The bags are still there but to me the clothes and shoes popped and looked even better up close than at the show. My favourite looks were the white off-shoulder dress and cropped-top-lacer cut-skirt, so in love!

The legendary photographer duo and partners, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, have launched a fine jewellery line, that is inspired by the couple’s own wedding rings and the love of their child, beautiful and romantic don’t you think. I for sure wouldn’t mind these beauties, oxidized silver pearl bangle (£535) and interlinked diamond rings (£1,595), you’ll find these and other pieces from the line here.
