Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2013

Images style.com

Many of the pre-fall collections that usually tend to get me all wow’ing and so did very little for me this time around. Having that said, as to no surprise (to myself at least), like Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney always delivers and these are my favourites looks, androgynous classic pieces with maxi proportions signed either of these two ladies can hardly go wrong, can they……

Biker

I know how to appreciate a great biker jacket when I see one, and it feels like I’ve been searching around forever for a more oversized model with a little length. So when I came across this beauty by Joseph on sales the other day I didn’t hesitate very long. Except for the soft leather I guess I fell for the collar which makes it a little more snuggy and dressy in a way. As for the oversize feature I have no other choice than wait until my pregnancy is over, oh mid February may you come quicker than soon!

Women in Suits

Well isn’t there just something with a perfectly cut suit or a tailored look, whether on a man or woman. And ADR, don’t you totally rock that Saint Laurent look!

Loving these shots by-need-no-further-introduction-Tommy Ton for style.com during men’s Fall 2013 ongoing fashion tour, but I’ll also tip you about my friend Lee Oliveira, also on scene, presenting excellent street style photography.

Arty cover

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.

Overloads

Woop woop, hope you all had a fabulous weekend so far,  and luckily there’s still some time left of it. Sadly the London weather hasn’t been very generous lately, cloudy and grainy, and I can’t recall when we last experienced blue skies, which make me almost miss the clear, bright and cold Scandinavian winters (well, just almost!).
Anyway, this is how I looked last week on an active day out and about in town, hence the footwear and comfy layers. Wishing you all a great Sunday noon!

Balenciaga SS13 Campaign

Speaking of Balenciaga, cant help but loving the campaign for Nicolas Ghesquiere‘s last collection for the fashion house, photographed by Steven Meisel. This SS13 campaign includes some of my favourite key pieces this spring that I cannot wait to see in real time.

BI-coloured

It’s not just Balenciaga’s stacking ensembles of golden rings that would be warmly welcomed in my jewellery tray right now, but I could easily make room for this timeless leather bracelet while we’re at it, also by Balenciaga and yours for £195.

Online

Today my pale wintery feet jumped into my new graphic python gommino’s that I posted about before Christmas (love, love, love them!). Many of you have asked me where to find these limited edition pair amongst others, and now Tod’s has finally launched an European e-commerce on their website, where you’ll find these beauties if interested, and SS13 collections available from end of January.

Celine Pre-Fall 2013

I cant say this is the most revolutionary and inspiring Phoebe Philo collection I’ve seen, but the tailored pieces and some of the white-shirt-looks (minus the shoes!) in Celine’s pre-fall are definitely right up my alley.

Midi

Many thanks for uplifting words on my previous outfit post, and great feedback regarding honesty, something I intend to keep all the way (no conspiracy club here no).

Bodycon midi dresses are btw new favourites in my wardrobe, and super comfy with an expanding bump. Except for a few midi dresses I already had I’ve bought some extras on the high street just to have more options, and as long as they are stretchy there’s no need to look in the maternity departments(!), just saying.
Ok gotta run, late dinner out in town, wishing you all a fabulous eve!

A good pair

Vogue Netherlands January/February 2013

Frida looking stunning in simple basic pieces that I personally cannot wait to get back into, a pair of relaxed fitted jeans and a good knit is sometimes all a girl on the go needs!

Unique SS13

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.

Honestly

If I said I love getting dressed these days I would be lying, I can easily forget about most things in my wardrobe for now, except from a very few jeans, tops and dresses that are sort of being circulated. And while we are at it, telling the truth I mean, it’s not always easy to embrace all changes to your body while your reflection in the mirror is moving further and further away from yourself.
BUT, being blessed with a strong health, a good spirit, and the light at the end of the tunnel coming closer makes up for it all (something I’m being told all the time!).
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and have one or two on me, yeah!

Psssst …

I’ve lost track of how many mails I’ve received the last 2 years from readers asking to buy my Scale bag by Acne that pretty much sold out globally back in 2011. Well, happy news is that the gorgeous bag is back in leather and suede, in different colours and shapes, with the signature buckle designed by Husam El Odeh. If you fancy any of these beauties you’ll find them here, pricing from £300 to £600.

Max Mara Spring 2013 Campaign, Kati Nescher by Mario Sorrenti

Ok, I can’t say that it happens very often that Max Mara has been source of my inspiration, but ever since I came across the spring campaign a month ago it’s been hiding in the back of my mind, suddenly I’m dreaming of sandy colours and classic-safari-minimalism come spring. I totally agree with Cathy Horyn who gives her thumbs up to this campaign, which is strong, polished and elegantly beautiful, and just like that Max Mara is on my radar……
