I can’t remember ever getting so many compliments for my perfume as this one, Philosophy’s Grace Pure eau de parfum, and I like it even better than Amazing Grace which I’ve worn for years. When I was in NY I got refills from the whole grace pure range, totally addictive and as it says on the box: “nothing smells better than soap and water clean”, can’t argue that.
Today I went to a press event where we had a look through spring/summer collections from brands like Sass&Bide, Twenty8Twelve, David Koma, Calvin Klein, Massimo Dutti, Pringle of Scotland and several others. As I’ve posted earlier my heart beats for David Koma’s Spring collection that was presented during LFW but also the shoes and robust accessories Mawi for David Koma stood out. There were some beautiful silk fabric pieces from S&B Vie by sass & bide and on the beauty side a new fragranced series from my personal favorite Philosophy.
After spending 2 lovely days in Bangkok I’m now back in London. Good in a way even if I would need a couple of days to adjust to the fresh, raw air. A nice surprise when I opened my door was to find a pair of gorgeous pants wrapped in paper from Cos that my kindest friend Maggie ran off and got for me when I was in Barcelona (posted about The hunt! earlier), she had also put something very appreciated in my fridge, so I would say a very good welcoming home.
I’m kind of hungering to get back on a normal track again, strange how you feel you are missing out on things when you are away but the fact is that you probably are. Gotta a lot to catch up!
I popped in to a Mulberry store in Bangkok where they just got in deliveries of the Alexa bag in black and purple, I’ve never been very tempted but within 1 hour they were all sold out, quite hysterical I would say. Anyway I’ve had my eye on a classic Bayswater in printed leather for a long time though……. But for now these goodies ended up in my bag.
A pair of shorts from Calvin Klein, the material is quite thick and will be just perfect for fall and add some color to all the black & beige. My absolute favorite skin products from Philosophy, Amazing Grace, with a light and fresh scent, love it!
