Already one week in of December, November, fall, what happened? Christmas is just around the corner, and a like many of you my list stretches to the moon of things that should be done, well, same procedure as every year I guess. We’ll all get there in the end don’t we, one way or another!

So with that dark cloud of things that I should do hanging over me, I haven’t really put much thought into outfits, and simply relied on basic and comfy all-rounders, but when I think of it that’s what I always do, hehe.
Happy Saturday Everyone!

Throw a cardie on it!

Dress+Cardigan2

I like it when things can be dressed up and down depending on footwear, and throwing a cardigan on a little lace number is also one way to go for versatility.

Pre-Fall’s 2014

Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2014Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2014, images style.com

Hurra! I’ve been in need for top-up-inspiration lately and just in time, images of  the first Pre-Fall 2014 collections are released, don’t we just love capsule collections? Finding myself dreaming of Altuzarra’s clean colour block, knee-length, mules(the heels of 2014!) – looks. All that I wanna wear right now, and we haven’t even got to live through the SS-14 collections with all their prints, metallics, and ethnic hypes yet. The confusion of fashion …

Black Friday, Cyber Monday? Only a few years back I personally had to clue of any, but in these digital and global times you must have been hiding in a cave with no internet connection or been a real anti-shopper at heart if you haven’t snapped it up. My inbox have been full lately with all sorts of  sales, offers and discounts than ever before and if you’re an eager online shopper like myself I’m sure yours is too. Now is the time to get those things you’ve been eyeing for long, but never really could justify to pay at full price, let the joyful shopping begin!

Thigh-high

Winter chill has slowly arrived and this week I’ve wrapped up in layers of wool. I’ve also rediscovered the practicality of thigh high boots that are the best leg warmers there is, and I have the feeling this pair are gonna be quite useful if this season’s weather forecast comes true. I’ll just make sure to leave my leather mini’s at home!

Oh how we love how a pair of sneakers complete an otherwise not-so-sneaker’ish outfit, don’t we? Loving the styling in Vogue Netherlands December issue, and I seriously need to add a pair of dark coloured Air Max’es to my wishlist below.

Pink, perhaps the colour of 2013, and spring 2014? Yup, some pink pieces have found their way to my wardrobe too, and I particularly love this skirt by Carven, where the thick wool fabric sort of has a life on it’s own. It has various styling possibilities, and goes with everything, perhaps not so much with black tights, but time will see.

Outfit worn a few weeks back, today a totally different story, winter has arrived, so Happy Chilly Sunday noon world!

Wool skirt by Carven, wool knit by YMC, coat by Ganni, boots by Jimmy Choo, bag by Celine, necklaces by Cos, Marte Frisnes Jewellery (gold) and Jennifer Zeuner (diamond).

Hermès Attelage

Hermes Attelage Bracelet

The coming season is trending towards eccentric statement jewellery, especially big chunky bracelets in all varieties and colours. I personally prefer mine more on the sleek side though, and wouldn’t mind this new addition in the Hermès family, the Attelage bracelet, a minimal beauty in rose gold and silver, yum!

Showrooming

 kate moss by Corrine Day sofaKate Moss by Corrine Day, 1993

Yesterday The Oxford Dictionaries announced that the Word of The Year 2013 is ‘selfie’, a term that most social media users are more than familiar with.
Just like Matthew Schneier at style.com, I find the list of runners up a lot more interesting, like the term showrooming for instance. I admit I showroom from time to time for various reasons, but had no idea these actions had a name.
Do you showroom?

showrooming: the practice of visiting a shop or shops in order to examine a product before buying it online at a lower price. [ORIGIN early 21st century: from SHOWROOM ‘a room used to display goods for sale’.]
