Double

I find myself sporting double denim quite often, a combo I never seem to be tired off, being a jeans girl and all. I got this denim shirt by Celine 2 years ago and have worn it countless times with other denim pieces (here a long time ago), and it’s definitely one of my wardrobe staples and was really worth the investment for sure.

Meanwhile other denim pieces come and go, and since a girl can never get enough jeans(!), new-ins are these super soft jeans by Koral.

Jeans by Koral, old shirt by and bag by Celine, booties by Dolce & Gabbana.

Tod’s in Marche

Iphone images

This week I was given a tour around Tod’s beautiful headquarter and factory based in Marche in Italy. Little did I know how the actual production of shoes really takes place, and found it so cool following the dedicated handcraft all the way from the drawing board to the final result carefully wrapped in a box. If you ever have your ways through this area at some point I highly recommend you to stop by the factory outlet where you’ll find everything from classic Tod’s Gomminis to bags for a very good penny.

Soft stretch-lace

Hanky Panky has been one of my favourite lingerie brands for years and I’m loving these fresh colours that I wouldn’t mind adding to my little collection, mission for this weekend perhaps! If interested yourself you’ll find them here.

Checked


Hello there, I’m very sorry for the absence, but I’ve been pretty stuck with technical problems lately, you know the not so funny ones when your laptop and camera(!) decide not to play along. Sorting it out on your own with a baby in your arms doesn’t really help, though my daughter is a patience trouper, bless!

Anyway, I’ve got this love for relaxed dresses lately, and this one’s a new favourite. In fact I wouldn’t mind having one in every colour, as it’s just so versatile and perfect to roll up in a weekend bag, which is in fact what I’ve been doing today, but that’s another story, see you in Italy and remember you can always find me on Instagram, arrivederci!

New dress by Splendid (herehere and here), jacket by Tibi (on sales here), shoes by Jimmy Choo, bag by Dries Van Noten and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Easy

Jeans+shirt, an unbeatable combo of mine, worn with sandals is probably what you would most likely see me in if we run into each other this summer. Not complicated at all, just like me, wishing you a fabulous Friday noon superstars!

Leopard

Leopard never seem to leave the spotlight and one or two leopard pieces “should” be included in every wardrobe, and sales periods are the perfect time to keep your eyes open for classic leopard additions. This knitted jumper with a graph back by Stella McCartney is certainly a clear favourite of mine, and will be perfect for fall 2013. If interested you’ll find it here and here.

Lesson

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a great kickoff in the new week!

Summer, yes, what was that again, someone please remind me, I seem to have forgotten the meaning and content of it by now, and realised that the only way of getting one is to escape England at some point very soon.
A lesson learned for me this year is not going bananas for summery stuff (fully prized) early in the season, unless it’s one of those really rare pieces that sell out immediately. I mean by the chance you get to wear them they are already in the summer sales so whats the point (think I just made a pair of retailer enemies right now!).

Anyway, summer or not, I’ve dug out my “old”  booties by Dolce & Gabbana (here and here) and paired them with a skirt by Zara, jumper by Vanessa Bruno, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford

S A L E S

You haven’t missed out that some summer sales have officially kicked off in Europe? As usual during sales I only look for classic pieces or stuff I know for sure I will use all throughout next season. And if I hadn’t already got a new bag (a checked bargain by Dries Van Noten, hurra!) I might have been up for one of these suede mini beauties by Saint Laurent, 30% off and yours for £661.

No Céline

Celine fall 13-14, images style.com

If you are waiting for images from Phoebe Philo’s Resort 2014 collection to drop at style.com or other sites then please don’t hold your breath. According to WWD the Céline house has decided to “do-a-Tom Ford” and keep images of the new collection under wrap for now. And we may all wonder why, or perhaps not (read Zara?).

Meanwhile, we’ve always the fall collection to dream about, the pale knee length skirts, voluminous tops and checked coats for instance, meow…

Bomber

It’s not often I move over to the lighter colour palette but it does happen in between denim days. I’ve had this bomber jacket for a while now but haven’t really had the chance to use it much, a mesh jacket in a 10 degree London doesn’t sound like a hit right. Anyway, I’ve finally dug it out and it could potentially be the perfect throw-on this summer, if the the higher forces allows it.

Crepe pants by Hofmann Copenhagen, bomber jacket by Stella McCartney, old shoes Zara, bag by Celine, silver ring by Noemi Klein and Ray Ban’s.

Isabel Marant + H&M

Image H&M

Ok, so it is, Isabel Marant for H&M is confirmed the latest collaboration out there. Not really sure if I’m feeling much to be honest, it feels like we’ve seen Marant’ish stuff on the highstreet already, but  you can be sure of a digital explosion worldwide of product images until the collection will launch 14th of November.
