Oh you spring, you sure had us fooled for a while!
Anyway, chillier or not, the sun has been out this week and so have I and my little supergirl, constantly by my side or in my arms whatever I do. With some common sense in mind that should have restricted my wardrobe to jeans and more childproof items by now, but that won’t happen, at least as long there’s no mudd involved!
Oh you spring, you sure had us fooled for a while!
Dries Van Noten always delivers beautiful, opulent, feminine, edgy and and contrasting collections, and fall 2014 is no exception. Here’s a little insight into the Belgium designers work and if you’re around Paris before 31’st of August, then stopping by Musée Des Arts Décoratifs could be worth a visit, where the artist ongoing exhibition is held.
Something “old”, something new, I rarely borrow, but I love the colour blue, and I’m not referring to any marital status.
Mixing “old” favourites with new seasons additions is usually my way to go, it’s all about investing in quality pieces right?
New in in this outfit that I wore in Paris last week are these gorgeous shoes by Aquazzura that I’ve been eyeing for quite a while, and they do follow up with a funny story. On my first day parading these beauties in Paris I ran into the lovely designer himself, Edgardo Osorio, in the streets. I mean, what are the chances, perhaps shoe fairies do exist?
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!
As you may know my style is not very complicated and pretty simple, you may call me boring, but to me nothing beats timeless classics, and preferable in non-screamy colours. I would also dare to say opting for classic pieces of high quality will “save” you money in the long run. Whether you agree to this statement or not at least you’re more likely to use them many seasons right.
Anyway, I like mixing my basics (black denims and blazer) with structured pieces, like this python bag by Tod’s, a new baby in my closet.
Happy Sunday everyone!
Sorry for a slightly slow “comeback” but I’ve had my hands pretty full lately, and though I have got dressed every morning(!), having it caught on camera hasn’t been first priority or simply forgotten, but I’ll get back in there for sure when days run a little smoother.
Some sort of spring has finally arrived in London (so happy!), but I’ll definitely wait a little longer before bringing out floaty, light fabrics and bare legs, Anyway, it’s wonderful to air those feet that has been locked in way too long this winter, don’t you think?
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!!!
I fell in love with Dries Van Noten’s spring collection as soon as I laid my eyes on it in September, and finally some of the gorgeous pieces, like these highly coveted cotton checked shirts have hit stores. Though we’ve been bombarded with similar styles and copies on the highstreet for months it hasn’t affected my desire to wear checked this spring. Except for the obvious pairing with denim I might also do it the “Dries-way” with florals and silks, and any of these two would be so welcomed by me! Orange shirt £221 and burgundy shirt £455.
Grunge references and tartan continues to be part of next spring’s scene, latest seen on Dries Van Noten’s runway yesterday, where he mixed tartan prints with unexpected floral patterns and floral organza, and it worked so perfectly well. This collection is a stunner which you can check out here, but shy away if you’re an anti-print-minimalist.
I’m heading over to Paris in one hour and wouldn’t mind packing any of these looks with me……. See you in Paris!
I’m in love with this look from Dries Van Noten 2010 A/W Collection. A perfect way to enter the Autumn but since I don’t have the right ingredients yet in my wardrobe I’ll have to improvise. I’ve found a wool skirt at Zara (a little shorter more practical one) which I’m gonna wear in a similar way with a slouchy, casual top.
The 50’s look which is everywhere out there I don’t find very appealing. I will definitely not dress like a 50’s housewife or pin-up this winter. One who can pull this trend off without looking like one is Scarlett Johansson, she seems to love that length of skirt and always look fabulous in it. I really do like the dress she’s wearing below though fronting Mango’s F/W 10/11 Collection, very ladylike but can easily be spiced up a bit, I’ve had an eye for it but it’s not yet in store.
What I don’t like is the beyond photoshopped face of her in the new Mango Campaign, it’s even hard to recognize her, she looks more like Jessica Biel to me or should I put on my glasses again?
