Thief Knot PendantA few weeks ago we met our friend Alba at the London Design Museum cafeteria.  After a cup of coffee (properly instagrammed here) and a little bit of chit chat, she introduced us to her new project. Alba is quite the creative type, so we expected something original, unique. And she didin’t disappoint. Together with Terence Woodgate, designer of lighting and furniture, Alba Bayona is taking jewellery to the next level.

Lena Hoschek

12 May

Lena_Hoschek_NightOur dearest friends are getting married in a month and we still have nothing to wear. Panic. They have planned a classic glamourous night wedding that is going to be so much fun. We just can’t wait! But again, we have nothing to wear. Well, I know that P. is going to find a stunning gown the minute she looks for it. She is tall and slim and everything looks just perfect on her. Unfortunately, that’s not my case. I’m curvier and petite. The result? Shopping is not easy for me. But after looking and looking (and looking a little bit more) I’ve found a brand that embraces femininity: Lena Hoschek.

May wish list

6 May

collage_bags_spring2015
We went to London last weekend. We had a wonderful time, but my back was killing me most of the time. Why? Because I carried a huge bag with me. The problem is that when I look for/buy bags I only think about my everyday life from Monday to Friday and always forget weekends. So I end up with tote bags or huge purses where the 1.500 things I need on a daily basis fit perfectly. And since I don’t have any nice medium/small size bag for the weekend, I usually carry around all that stuff on weekends and trips too. Bad, bad, bad. (Does that happen to you too?)

That’s why if I have to spend my money on one thing this month, that’s going to be a medium-sized bag. And here are my options:

1. The terribly trendy Drew bag by Chloé: I got the feeling that it’s going to become a classic. So the cost per wear will justify the splurge.

2.  A very similar version within a more affordable price range. Claire by Michael Kors.

3.  The “absolutely not my average choice but oh I just love it” bag. Emmanuelle by YSL.

4.  Another bag by YSL. Pretty discreet and wearable. But is it too discreet for that price tag?

5.  This one just goes with just about everything and it’s so Spring-y, isn’t it?

6. A pretty color to bright up my otherwise monochrome outfits.

7. The fun bag for holidays and Spring / Summer getaways. It makes me think about Ibiza.

8. And finally, the bag that I really, really want.

 

The overall

29 Apr

overall5During the last couple of years we’ve been seeing overalls everywhere. It started as a shy trend that only fashion victims would wear without looking like toddlers. We saw it in action during Paris Fashion Week 2013 for the first time (look at the fourth picture in this post) but now we can see beautiful, flattering overalls basically in every high street store. So the trend, once again, has become popular among all of us and no Spring/Summer wardrobe seems to be completed without an overall. That’s why we have put together some ideas, so that you can choose the perfect overall for you. Continue reading

Slightly boho

22 Apr

hakei1 We are not fans of the 70s trend that is taking over the shops this season. It’s just feels like a disguise. However, the looks that Hakei has put together for Spring take the boho extravaganza to a wearable level. This we can do. A muted 70s style mixed with casual basic pieces. Continue reading

The basic Spring wardrobe: AYR

15 Apr

5
Good morning! The sun shines, the temperatures are warm and right now that’s all we need to be happy. That, and a fabulous Spring wardrobe to go with it. Of course, by fabulous we mean monochrome, basic and wearable. No flower prints, no pastels, no 70’s looks for us. That’s why we wanted to share with you the new pieces that AYR has added to its collection. AYR is one of those brands that we absolutely love. Its motto is: good design is always in season. And that’s pretty much what we want to have in our closets. Good quality pieces and edited essentials that last. Continue reading

The sandals

8 Apr

whistles-aralia-toepost-sandal-tan_06whistles-aralia-toepost-sandal-tan_032 degrees this morning. I mean… 2 degrees! We just can’t stand it anymore. We want sun and over 20 degrees temperatures. Is that too much to ask? Since we moved to Germany I think we have been able to wear sandals twice. Twice in four years! Obviously, that doesn’t stop us from browsing our favourite websites and shops in search for the perfect pair. Is there anything happier than two feet with bright toenails inside a pretty pair of sandals? No, there isn’t.

We love mixing bright nail polishes with neutral leather sandals and, in order to rock that look, we need this minimalistic but really nice pair of sandals by Whistles. Don’t you love them? We think they can look perfect with just about any outfit. You can dress them up with a nice little black dress or you can simple wear them with shorts (we are talking denim here, of course) and a tee.

Well, we will be visiting London soon so a stop in a Whistles branch is guaranteed… Even though we won’t be able to wear them frequently, at least we will be prepared for Summer (last year was a Friday, sigh!).

Direction Marseille

1 Apr

sezane1When we like something we stick with it. Fashionwise that can look quite boring, but we  like to think that we are consistent and in tune with our lifestyle. That’s why our favorite brands appear repeatedly on this blog. We are loyal. But how not to when they show us again and again exactly what we want to wear? They seem to get us. We want wearable, discreet, polished but casual and almost monochrome. Sézane has recently presented their Spring collection and we’ve fallen for their delicate shirts, clean lines and amazing sandals. We even love a pair of golden shorts, that even if quite daring, seem like a posible statement for warmer nights.  Continue reading

The right clothes for a woman in her 30s

11 Mar

gd2As much as we love casual clothing, sometimes we need to dress up a little bit to attend work related meetings and events. We are lucky enough to work in creative atmospheres where the strict corporate look is not necessary. However, being lazy dressers ourselves is quite easy to end up wearing jeans, flats and sweaters most of the time (guilty as charged). But Spring is coming and we are determined willing to make an effort. Better temperatures always cheer us up and make us want to step up our game, even at the office. But what to wear? We are in our 30s so we have to look the part… Well, take a look at these Gerard Darel proposals. We think they are right choice for a working woman in her 30s. Continue reading

We need this! Adidas Gazelle

4 Mar

adidas_gazelleWhile preparing this post I’ve found out that I have quite a collection of sneakers. Browsing our Instagram feed I’ve found my custom made Stan Smith, my basic black Nike , my Converse (of course), my Supergas, my New Balance , my polka dot Nike Airmax and my neon Adidas (that I only wear to the gym). Apparently I love sneakers. I never really was a sneaker person but I guess living in Germany has made my style more casual. I’ve always loved flats and I always will but I wasn’t aware of this little addiction of mine. Anyway, I have my reasons: you can wear them with just about everything and by doing so you’ll add an immediate cool factor to your look. I just want to buy more and more pairs. Oh my.

My last target are the classic Adidas Gazelle. They remind my of my first year at Uni, when I wanted to be a skater girl and rock a sporty but tortured look. If you weren’t a teenager during the late 90’s you will not understand but, believe me, Gazelles were the coolest shoes you could wear. And now, here they are again. You can spot them in almost every fashion website. I’m not going to resist this new “it shoe” trend. Oh no. The black version is my favorite, but I’ve already have my black Nikes, which make me feel like a Copenhagen girl. The light grey pair is beautiful but super high maintenance. The navy Gazelles could be perfect for Summer but I’m tempted to create my own custom made pair in red (by the way, the customize section of Adidas website is dangerous!). They could be a great pop of coulour in my otherwise black / grey/ navy outfits. And I don’t have any red sneakers in my collection. And they are pretty. And comfortable. And I like them. And I want them. Ok, now I need them.
