Supergirl

I just wanted to share with you that on Monday morning this week my beloved supergirl arrived, strong and healthy, a beautiful little miracle, and certainly the coolest and most amazing meeting ever in my life!
As for her name I’m having difficulties making a final decision (like always when I’ve options to choose from), but for now she’s my little supergirl!

New boots

Ok, so I did make a choice between 2 pair of Saint Laurent boots back in January but I couldn’t really forget about the biker boots I left behind. Ooops, but now they are mine too, perhaps the most perfect everyday black boot, in LOVE! If interested yourself you’ll find them here.

Tod’s Timeless Icons

Dong Jie and Tod’s new creative director, Alessandra Facchinetti

If I wasn’t home in London right now waiting impatiently for this baby to arrive(!) I would have been in Milan with my Tod’s girls Martha, Carolina and Noor for the book launch of Timeless Icon, and also had the chance to meet Tod’s new creative director (announced this week), former creative director at Valentino, Alessandra Facchinetti.
Wishing I was with you beautiful bright ladies, but next time I will for sure!

Note the smashing python shoulder bags, they are my favourite pieces in Tod’s SS13 collection.

 Martha Ward, Carolina Gonzalez Bunster (founder of the Walkabout Foundation) and fine jewellery designer Noor Fares.

Emilio Pucci A/W 13-14

Norwegian designer Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci, served refreshing 70′s vibes yesterday in Milan, and rocked everything up a little from what we’ve been seeing lately. The bangs(!!), hotpants, prints, capes, furs, mini dresses and glamour bohoness was all there, and these thigh high leather boots(!), olalla!

In Limbo

Woop woop, another week has past and I’m sort of on hold, hello “limboland”!

I’ve been keeping myself busy this week by stopping by a few fashion week events and tried to have some work done. I’ve totally given into comfortable dressing at this point that allows room for really strong and unpredictable kicks(!) and splashed it with old and new accessories, like my good old Obsedia and this cashmere turban.

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!!

5 essentials

5 accessories I wouldn’t mind at all this spring are sets of golden rings, pointy slippers, something studded (an-all-year-rounder!), a minimal clutch and round sunnies, and these are some of my favourites in store right now.

Fall 2013 from NY

 Proenza Schouler

Altuzarra

Tibi

3.1 Phillip Lim

Victoria BeckhamAll images style.com

Fashion weeks have already moved on from London to Milan, but except for Alexander Wang’s wonderful “furry collection”, here are some of my other favourite looks and pieces from NY’s fall collections presented last week. If these collections are anything to go by as for trending directions for fall 2013, then we can safely include black and white looks, leather and fur pieces in the trend forecast for now.

LOVE
- Proenza Schouler’s bulky contrasting silhouettes and wowen leather pieces
- Altuzarra’s monochrome superhot(!) body slinky dresses and leather pieces.
- Tibi’s wearable snugging pieces and I need those thigh high leather boots in my life(!)
- Phillip Lim’s jackets and cool layered silhouettes, and again I am reminded that a pair of round sunnies are still missing in my wardrobe.
- Victoria Beckham, sophisticated with a masculine touch, pencil lengths with bulky tops, and that gorgeous checked coat, please send my way!

Perminova

Ok, since I had enough of restless napping days at home waiting for my baby(!) I yesterday decided to do a little street style snapping at Burberry’s in Kensington Gardens where some of my favourite chic girls where parading around, Lena Perminova was one of them, in this perfect mix of high and low, a Burberry Prorsum peplum tweed jacket and skirt by H&M, bag by Analeena.

Le White Pumps

I’ve been craving a pair of white pumps some time now, same happened last year when I totally fell for Alexander Wang’s Joan’s. However, white heels can easily look a little “wrong” (tarty anyone?), but a pair that definitely looks right in my eyes this season are these by Saint Laurent (Slimane again I know!). If interested you’ll find them with a higher heel here or other colours here.

Hoop

Hehe, you know maybe it’s time to capitulate when what used to be one of the most oversized items in your wardrobe starts feeling tight and when you by the end of the day need assistance to get shoes off (!). I’m definitely there, but since I just cannot sit at home waiting for anything to happen, and feel perfectly good when on my feet (heels!), I might even attend a few shows during LFW that kicks off tomorrow, well, we’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, hoop earrings and chunky knitwear are on my sartorial mind these days and if you’re looking for hoop earrings without spending too much you’ll find a great selection at Topshop.

1, 2, 3

3 favourites of mine right now that I especially like wearing with blue denim!

Estée Lauder’s Nail Lacquer in So Vain, except for the exceptional beautiful bottle this is the perfect nude’ish nail polish and only one coat is needed, launching in March 2013.
Hoop earrings by Topshop, not too chunky or heavy (for actually being worn!).
Leather cuff by Balenciaga, similar here.

In stores

In case you didn’t know you’ll find Topshop Unique’s runway collection in selected stores and online right now, but some pieces are selling like hot bread so be aware. I’ve secured some of my favourite pieces myself that will be perfect for layered airy looks come spring, oh wonderful days ahead!

Floral silk dress (£165), check silk shirt (£85), panel jumper (£), check silk trousers (£135) and leather clutch (£300).

Far away

Sorry for disappearing for a couple of days but I’ve had too much to do privately, my mum visiting and a few last preps for the baby who could arrive any time soon(!!!).
I’ll be missing out on most fashion-week-stuff this February which is for someone, workaholic like me, a little frustrating, but bless online screenings with today’s highlights such as Tibi, Alexander Wang and Altuzarra from NY.

As for my own outfit posts there won’t be many more from me in the weeks ahead, having had my wardrobe totally recycled lately, but I promise I’ll be back for sure afterwards finally fitting into my New life, New ideas and New wardrobe.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!!

Cashmere trousers by Hofmann, new shirt by Dries van Noten, lightweight parka by Acne (similar by Phillip Lim here), boots by Saint Laurent, bag by Proenza and Ray Ban’s.
