Sunday blue & sweet-corn soup

Yesterday I had a stroll in the rain in Covent Garden, watched Arsenal loose in a football pub and warmed up on chinese chicken sweet-corn soup in china town.

Lately I’ve only been able to snap my casual outfits, I wore a beautiful new dress when I went out on a girls night on Saturday eve but I’ll show you another time. Sorry for the angry look in these images, really I wasn’t, simply Sunday tiredness I guess.

Rain coat Cos, knit Isabel Marant, leather skirt H&M, booties Zara, bag Mulberry

Le Belt

Just clicked home this belt by Isabel Marant, nothing extraordinary I know, a basic brown leather belt but that was in fact missing in my wardrobe. Also ordered a pair of cropped black pants, always feels like gambling, pants need to be tried on right.

The Blues

Loving the blues in Sportmax fall collection, what is the right name, turquoise blue, electric, vibrant blue? Overall the whole collection was ok, the silk shirt on the right looks heavenly.

Haha, I love this image by Tommy Ton from his fashion week tour.

Maxis, brogues and bum-bags

Dolce & Gabbana sent down their donnas on the runway today in Milan wearing maxi dresses, brogues with socks and bum bags. I love this unpredictable combination though I find it hard to swallow the star prints that seems to be the red line through the whole collection. Having that said I’ve never been a D&G fan but these bum bags look fantastic!

See the whole collection here.

Little Venice

On Friday after finishing off some work I headed up to Little Venice to enjoy some after work drinks at The Waterway by the channel, I love that part of London, wouldn’t mind moving there at all.

Oki, now I’m on the run out in the rain to watch a football game in a pub, have a lovely Sunday noon!

Jil Sander Fall 2011

Images by Style.com

Raf Simons presented his fall collection for Jil Sander in Milan today and not very surprisingly I like it even though I was much more excited about their spring collection. Many black looks and darker colors, clean cut as usual and the knitwear and patterns give me alpine vibes. Some of the looks reminds me of the outfits Tilda Swinton wears in the beautiful movie I Am Love. Notice the blue/green eyeshadow, nice!

See the whole collection here.

Damn

After waiting for these sunnies from Acne to arrive in store for ages I’ve been told none of them will be produced for sale, how can that be, damn!

The Photodiarist

Came across these images on a NY photo blog called The Photodiarist snapped during NY fashion week when I wasn’t aware. The beautiful photo blog takes you on a trip in mostly B&W images and some in colors, taken by the talented Photodiarist herself, definitely worth checking out.

Silver

I dislike sigarettes, can’t stand the smell of them and leave every party at an early stage if someone pulls them out, I might sound like a prude but I hate the smell in clothes and hair. They do look cool though in images, love the way the smoke moves in an arty way and after seeing this image snapped by Tommy Ton I was reminded that my silver nail color has ran out, cause this is exactly what I’d love to wear right now, silver nails.

Springday

What happened, after on week of shit weather, cold and rain during fashion week which spoiled everything called spring outfits (unless you didn’t mind getting ill) today was the warmest and best day so far this year, I’m sure someone’s playing a trick on us.

Blazer Acne, jeans Cheap Monday, t-shirt Jil Sander, scarf Cos, booties Zara, sunnies Prada and Mulberry

Lunchtime

Just when fashion week was about to end I bought a new lence for my camera, it’s so small so it feels like my camera is amputated and I’ll need some time to get use to it. I played around with it today and met up my dearest Johanna at Le Pain Quotidien for a girly break, my first “normal” day in weeks, wonderful! For the rest of you friends and family that haven’t seen or heard from me the last couple of weeks, I’ll call you very soon.

I’ll post some more images from today shortly.

Budget

Nice things in Zara right now, I’m curious about the shoes, especially the multi colored ones, hope to stop by later today and check them out.
I also like these messenger bags, all in real leather for a very good penny.

Paranee Ongwat

I know, it looks a bit creepy but I came across this bracelet cuff on the exhibitions this weekend by a designer called Paranee Ongwat, and I love it though it looks completely mental.

Oki, sorry for bad posting, LFW is over and finally I can unpack my suitcase from my NY trip last week, yes, it’s still unpacked but first I’m gonna jump into my Louboutins and celebrate this day with a wonderful dinner at a restaurant I’ve heard is really good, The Square.  Have a lovely eve!
