Detail

Today I wore this burgundy colored leather bracelet from Acne, loving the color and silver buckle, feels very fall-like, which is quite suitable as we step out of the last summer month today, according to the calendar. I’ll post some outfit images later on.

Breeze

Beautiful photo, beautiful girl, and items I’d love to include in my wardrobe, a red checked shirt and brown suede trousers, yes please! A little peak of what’s in Erin Wasson’s collection for Zadig &Voltaire that you will find in stores and on Netaporter very soon.

Toned down

On Sunday I attended one of those events in Paris were there was a whole lot of people of a different culture, including a lot of elderly people. Showing up in a mini dress, exposing too much skin or wearing anything too eye catching just didn’t feel appropriate, I guess you know what I mean?
I’ve wanted to wear this dress for a long time and would have styled it very differently on a “normal” event, probably with black sandals and more chunky accessories and clutch, well, I’ll save that for another time.

I wore silk dress by Alexander Wang, shoes Camilla Skovgaard, clutch Botkier, big silver bracelet by YSL and one traditional Lao style.

Je t’aime

I’m now the proud owner of what must be the coolest pair of flat boots I’ve ever seen, one of my treats from Paris. As a paradox I initially was on the hunt for these boots that was put aside for me in my size but when I stepped into the Isabel Marant store……..I spotted these. Pointy toe, patent leather, it was love at first sight!

Saturday

Balenciaga

Alexander Wang

On Saturday in Paris I spotted the incredible handcrafted waistcoat from Balenciaga’s fall collection, my favorite look was on full display but I was in a hurry and only snapped it through the windows. There were a whole lot of quick window-shopping that day, followed by a few treats to myself. Sadly the weather was crap so I ended up sporting taxi’s instead of wandering along the river which I always do when I’m there.

I’ve been asked by some of you readers to to tip about places to shop and eat when in Paris, I’m probably not the right person to advice as I’m not a “local”, but I’m gonna try to put something together, from a tourist’s point of view.

Zara

One of my favorite models, Suzie Bird, had her career kicking off pretty well after being the face of Celine’s most wanted pre-fall collection back in January, and she’s now fronting Zara’s August lookbook. These are some of my favorite looks, casual, cool, affordable and in store now.

Lanvin Fall 2011 Campaign

Today I jumped on an early morning train and I’m back in home sweet London after a slightly hectic but fun weekend in Paris.
Enjoy Lanvin’s (dance moving) fall campaign for now, should at least wake you up or put a smile on your face on a Monday noon, Alber Elbaz has for sure some sense of humor.

Serendipity

Bonjour! Paris has been wonderful so far and yesterday was a non-stop day with shopping eating and randomly we bumped into 2 groups of friends in 2 different areas of Paris. In fact I was led to one of the areas, Marais, tracking a pair of gorgeous shoes, serendipity I guess.

Now, gotta get ready to a massive birthday party, wishing you a happy Sunday too!

I wore skirt Acne, jumper Margiela, gillet H&M, boots Topshop, bracelet Proenza Schouler, watch Michael Kors, ring YSL, bag Celine and sunnies Ralph Lauren.

Sirens

It’s Friday chilly noon and I long for soft salty sea breeze, floating fabrics and white sand between my toes. This behind-the-scenes-video by Kai Z. Feng from Stockholm S/S/A/W’s cover shoot, starring  Dorothea Barth Jorgensen, Katrin Thormann and Amanda Norgaard is so stunningly beautiful along with the music that I could cry, and long even more…..

Oh my Wang

Speaking of Wang, August is soon over (Help!) alongside the fresh summer tan and I still haven’t got the chance to wear my beautiful asymmetric long dress in silk from Alexander Wang that I came across on a great sale a long while ago. Not much time left this season so perhaps I’ll bring it along when I go to Paris for festivities this weekend, praying for good weather….

Love

These sandals from Alexander Wang’s A/W 11-12 collection are to me perfection, so delicate, cool and elegant, and I love the edgy detail on the heel, I would have bought them already if only my feet could ever squeeze into them but I know by now that narrow shoes like this requires tiny feet. Perhaps time to consider some corrective foot surgery, kidding! I’ll survive but you’ll find them here.

Rainday

The weather was really wet and uninspiring this morning when I left home for breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien with my favorite girl, Johanna.I tucked my hair inside my jacket and jumped into these cropped leopard jeans from Whistles (not exactly in that order) that I’ve used a lot lately. I’m so careful with leopard prints but this pattern and color feel more toned down in a way.

Jeans Whistles, old leather jacket Topshop, t-shirt and sandals Acne, bag Celine, watch Tagheuer and bracelet Margiela.

All Star

Converse on my feet, yes, it does happen from time to time, and today that was exactly what I felt like, worn with my printed Isabel Marant shorts.
Happy Wednesday eve!

In the mood of…

Prints!
And a printed blouse would be a perfect addition to my ever so “plain” wardrobe, all these candies are officially on my wishlist but some of them are slightly out of budget. I’ll use them as inspo instead and hope to come across alternatives on highstreet.
1. Isabel Marant, 2. Balenciaga, 3. Erdem, 4. Jonathan Saunders.

Nail news

Though I’ve felt like wearing more natural shades on my nails lately, constantly sporting Chanel’s 493 Jade Rose, I might feel tempted to try one of these shades from Chanel’s limited edition, Les Jeans de Chanel, that will hit stores 8th of September.

Another nail news is Alexander Wang‘s first beauty effort that includes his very own nail color collection from Sally Hansen and will debut at his Spring show in NY in a few weeks…..
