You might have seen on this space I’ve been a fan of Monica Vinader’s jewellery for quite a while. One of the main features of the brand, is the “stacking-principle”, which works so well for both bracelets or rings, that can be mixed together making it more personal. Monicavinader.com recently launched a fun ring stacker tool, which allows you to click, drag and rotate, and put together all sorts of combinations, clever indeed!
Unless you’ve got a ticket to a warm place in hand, then sandals are the last thing you probably “need” this time of year living in the Northern Hemisphere. Since I’ve given up reasoning and listening to sense these newcomers in stores are my pick of the day! By Isabel Marant, yours for £280 and you’ll find them here.
Turtle knits have certainly been “my thing” this season, and combined with the weather we’ve been blessed with so far it has allowed us to leave big chunky scarves at home. Wearing lighter colours have also been a conscious “act” of mine, and though I’m pretty much of a black cat, I swear lighter colours sort of brightens up your mood now when days are getting shorter.
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!
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!
It’s that time of year again when it’s allowed to make wishlists way beyond your “needs”, and here are some picks (treats!) that would be very welcomed on my doorstep!
18-karat Gold earrings by Noor Fares, Card holder by Saint Laurent, Dress by Stella McCartney, Camisole by Lover, Diamond Pave ring by Monica Vinader, Morrissey-Autobiography, Roses De Chloe EDT, Lace pumps by Jimmy Choo, Cosmetic bag by Gucci.
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!
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’.]
Bare legs in November? Yup, that has been totally possible in London without freezing your legs off. I’m not the one who spend my outdoor life in a cab (!), but with layers of wool, cashmere and a coat, bare legs has worked surprisingly well this mild season. However it’s inevitable, and as temperatures are dropping the dreaded tights(!), will eventually be put back on again, but until then I’m channeling my inner viking!
