Someone up-or-out-there obviously listens to my “prayers” and thanks to one of my wonderful readers who tipped me where she’d spotted these Celine beauties 3 weeks ago on sale. I jumped on the phone and they still had one pair left, which happened to be the perfect size, my foot slipped in so easily and I’m never gonna take them off again.
My toes are wearing Chanel’s Black Pearl.

Note: A tip for those of you craving the pair of Isabel Marant courts that Emmanuelle wears below and happen to be a size 5, you’ll find them at Liberty for £49.

Except for working the whole day and going through images from all shows in Stockholm I managed a wet trip in Covent Garden. I know on grey days like this the trick is to brighten up with colors, for some reason I don’t work like that and tend to dress like the light outside. Today a bright blue electric scarf landed on my door step from Italy, that will do the work for now.

Levi’s skirt, shirt and jumper Cos, coat French Connection, boots Acne, bag Mulberry and Chanel Black Pearl on my nails.

Black Pearl

I thought I was over dark nail polish for now but yesterday I came across the new color from Chanel that I blogged about ages ago, Black Pearl was launched last week, and I couldn’t resist it.

As you may know Chanel has a huge impact on how we paint our nails every season, probably due to their very limited edition range that hits the market a few times a year and the hype around it is always insane, waiting lists, selling out as soon as they hit the counter for £16 and then can then be found on ebay from £60 and up. Even if you think they don’t influence what you wear they probably do cause their trend colors get copied by any high street brand out there. Do you remember 2009’s Jade color, Februar’s Particuliere, June’s Nouvelle Vague and the Khaki range a month ago.

Here’s a sneak peak, the new color will most likely be Black Pearl. When Chanel presented their Spring Collection 2011 all the models nails were painted in a black pearly color with hints of green, being seen on the Spring show is a pretty good indicator on what’s gonna be the next nail-mania. Personally I think it’s a bit dark for spring but I’m sure it’s gonna be a success as always, in fact I’m gonna look around for something similar and wear it now.
