Hoop

Hehe, you know maybe it’s time to capitulate when what used to be one of the most oversized items in your wardrobe starts feeling tight and when you by the end of the day need assistance to get shoes off (!). I’m definitely there, but since I just cannot sit at home waiting for anything to happen, and feel perfectly good when on my feet (heels!), I might even attend a few shows during LFW that kicks off tomorrow, well, we’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, hoop earrings and chunky knitwear are on my sartorial mind these days and if you’re looking for hoop earrings without spending too much you’ll find a great selection at Topshop.

Saint Laurent Paris

It’s been confirmed that the legendary French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent will be rebranded to Saint Laurent Paris. The “name change” is part of the newly appointed creative director of the house, Hedi Slimane’s, way of moving the house forward, reports WWD, however the YSL logo will remain the same.

black & white

This weekend I’ve just been chilling at home, after a busy week my body and brain just needed to recharge, hence I didn’t feel inspired to get dressed at all, like on Saturday when I ran out to meet my friend David for a coffee, though I was tempted to leave the house in pyjamas and slippers I grabbed for my old cropped denims and favorite oversized knit, yes, we all have those days don’t we?

Cropped denims by Acne, knit YSL, Jimmy Choo Lana sunglasses, shoes Camilla Skovgaard and bag by Celine.

WC2 to SW5

After years in the heart of London surrounded by theatres, traffic, tourists, roadworks and a constant buzz I’m finally settled in a completely different beautiful environment. Looking out of the window seeing a garden with flowers blooming instead of staring straight into a brick wall is just wonderful and that’s one of the things I appreciate the most except for my new bigger wardrobe space. West End was a blast, and I’ll miss it a bit, but bye bye for now and welcome Kensington!!!

Images taken yesterday, I wore jeans and tank by Isabel Marant, knit YSL, shoes Alexander Wang, bag Celine, bracelet Cooee, Ray Ban’s and nail polish Chanel’s June.

Belle

I love my Belle Du Jour that goes with almost everything, but I wouldn’t mind one in these seasonal colors, especially in this lemon hue, sweet!

A great knit

Wow, this weekend passed so quickly and I’m left with the feeling of having done nothing, ok, a few good dinners out and clubbing on Saturday eve, but that’s about it, pretty lazy in other words.

The cold is back in London but here’s what I wore the other day when it was still mild outside. I wore a knitted jumper by YSL that I’ve worn a lot lately, and with a wool turtle underneath it can easily be worn as outerwear, new leather skirt H&M, shoes Celine and bag by Acne.

A mix of structures

On Saturday I dug out these soft leather pants from Cos in my wardrobe, one of my favorite pieces last year and I’ve got no plans of forgetting about them very soon either. The jumper is by Nowhere and I’m really positive surprised by the quality, every time I’ve worn it strangers have commented on it, one girl in a restaurant even sent the waiter over to ask me where it was from, so thumbs up!

Anyway, I wore this on Saturday noon when I was chilling in my hood and got pampered by my hairdresser before the big party, I wore leather pants from Cos, knit by Nowhere, clutch YSl, shoes Camilla Skovgaard, sunnies Phillip Lim, watch Tagheuer, bracelet Margiela, necklace Tiffany’s and ring Pamela Love for Topshop.

Red, white & blue

Sorry, don’t have much time to either upload images or say much, I’m soon heading out the door for a party, in fact my own party, tomorrow’s my birthday but tonight’s the big bang and I guess I for once should be on time to welcome the guests, or perhaps I’ll do it the American-sweet-16-way, making a grand entrance after all guests have arrived, no, I’ll skip that.

Wishing you all a fun night too, Ciao!

Here are some details I wore earlier today and I’ll do a whole outfit post tomorrow. Leather pants Cos, knit Nowhere, clutch YSL, watch Tagheuer, bracelet Margiela and Chanel’s Black Pearl on my nails.

Unpacked

It’s been almost a week since I got back from NY and my 2 luggages are still well planted on my living room floor, still unpacked. So these last couple of days I’ve had to wear stuff that was hiding inside my closet, just to avoid ironing, not my favorite thing and I’m totally useless at it. Still my stuff needed to be steamed, and my trick so far in life (a tip from my mum) is the typical bathroom steaming, well, my flat looks like a sauna a little to often now so my next buy is definitely gonna be a steamer.

Anyway, yesterday was the last day of fashion week in London and I wore a skirt and sandals by Balenciaga, jumper, bag and bracelet by Acne, sunnies Ralph Lauren and ring YSL.

Surprised

Saturday, day 2 of London fashion week, kicked off with wonderful weather so I took the risk of wearing a short dress with sleeves, but later in the noon temperatures dropped and heavy rain surprised us all at the Somerset House. London Fashion Week’s Daily were used as umbrellas and people fled the scene, quite a funny scenario to observe from my view, safely inside one of the coffee shops. Today however was a different story but I’ll share that with you tomorrow.

I wore dress and sunnies by 3.1 Phillip Lim, boots Topshop, watch Michael Kors, bracelet Margiela, ring YSL and bag Acne.

Details

Details from yesterday eve when I headed for a late show followed by dinner at the Mandarin with a lovely group of folks, the view up there was fantastic, highly recommended, even for someone like me who prefer to keep my feet planted safely on the ground.
I wore leather skirt by Acne, top Cos, clutch YSL, watch Tagheuer, bracelets YSL and Giuseppe Zanotti.

Toned down

On Sunday I attended one of those events in Paris were there was a whole lot of people of a different culture, including a lot of elderly people. Showing up in a mini dress, exposing too much skin or wearing anything too eye catching just didn’t feel appropriate, I guess you know what I mean?
I’ve wanted to wear this dress for a long time and would have styled it very differently on a “normal” event, probably with black sandals and more chunky accessories and clutch, well, I’ll save that for another time.

I wore silk dress by Alexander Wang, shoes Camilla Skovgaard, clutch Botkier, big silver bracelet by YSL and one traditional Lao style.

I’m blue

Yes, my choice landed on this clutch from YSL that I’ve kept my eyes on but ideally wanted in burgundy, as I didn’t find it in the larger size model, I decided to go for blue instead. But blue will do it for me and I love in the mix of the colors I like, blue-white, blue-brown, blue-green, blue-purple, blue-black…..

Pick

Todays pick lands on this patent vibrant blue YSL large clutch, I really love the pop up of vibrant blues this season together with burgundy or browny tones (think Phillip Lim) or simply a white shirt denim look, yes please.

Givenchy-Miu Miu-YSL

Fall campaigns 2011 are here and as usual I find the odd and quirky ones the most appealing, here are some new favorites.

For Givenchy, Naomi Campbell and Rob Evans working on their panther roars on a printed cushion in a corner, photographed by Mert & Marcus.

Miu Miu‘s Hailee Steinfeld working the ladylike sophisticated wardrobe from scratching her eye on the railways to enjoying a slice of pizza, photographed by Bruce Weber.

Raquel Zimmermann for YSL, photographed by Inez van Lamsveerde and Vinoodh Matadin, nothing really odd, except that she’s posing in the window on the 31st floor of a midtown skyscraper in NY,Β but I like it!
