Imagine a collection where French charm meets A Roman holiday. That is what Paul Ka has prepared for this season. A lovely mixture of 60s French riviera and Dolce far niente. Obviously I adore it.
The past weekend was amazing weather-wise. On Saturday we could visit the farmers market without our umbrellas and we even took a really long walk in the woods on Sunday morning. We know this is just an illusion of Spring ( that will arrive… eventually), but we can’t help but dreaming about warmer nights, longer days and sipping drinks al fresco. And for that you need new shoes. Everybody knows that.
This season we would love to wear metallic silver shoes. They go with absolutely everything and they add a nice sparkle even to your more casual outfits.
1. Leather pumps by Zara. These are extra uncomfortable. I’m sure about that. But they would be the perfect addition to your working wardrobe this Spring.
2, 3 & 4. JCrew always gets it right. Even more in the shoe department. I love these three pairs. I couldn’t choose just one. Maybe number 3?
5. Cute shoes for cute dresses by Asos. I think Alexa Chung would love these.
6. And how cool are these loafers?
We all want Spring to be around the corner (check our Instagram and you’ll see a suspicious amount of flower pictures), but the truth is that we still have a couple of months of Winter left. At least in the North of Europe, where we live. That’s why I’m still thinking about adding a couple of nice and timeless pieces to my Winter wardrobe.
I love trends, but I just can’t help but leaning towards basic and classic pieces. This Winter I’ve been looking for a nice camel coat and some comfortable pointy pumps to add a little bit of sobriety and temperance to my closet. They are perfect for work, they can be dressed up or down and they make you look like a million dollars.
1. Masculine camel coat by Joseph. Over the shoulders tren anyone?
2. Cashmere boyfriend sweater by JCrew. It just goes with everything.
3. The most beautiful camel coat by Max Mara. I’m in love!
4. Cute Kitten heel pumps by Zara.
5. Leo print pointy pumps by JCrew. Perfection
6. Black pumps by Gianvito Rossi. The epitome of the investment piece.
Today we want to introduce you to The 2nd Skin Co., a Spanish fashion house created by Antonio Burillo and Juan Carlos Fernandez. After seeing these pictures of their fab Red Candy Collection you will be head over heels. Promised. But be prepared for a picture overload!
New York fashion week is the center of the universe this week. New collections, gossips in the front row and bare legs in the streets are everywhere in the blogospehere. We’ve been following the shows via Style.com and we have an absolute favorite: DelPozo.
Before the fashion week madness starts in New York, we would like to review one last Pre-Fall collection. I don’t know why but Pre-Fall collections are my favourites. They have that mid-season charm, a particular style that is not as trendy as other collections. Maybe it’s a middle child syndrome… but they feel special. A few weeks ago we shared with you our favourite Pre-Fall collection by Michael Kors (click!) and more recently we dreamed about the most stunning Pre-Fall pieces by Valentino (click!). Today, we talk about Preen and their fabulous Pre-fall collection inspired by Tippi hedren.
We moved to Bremen almost three years ago. During all this time we’ve been hoping Zara would open a shop in Bremen. Yeah, we don’t have Zara here. For two Spanish girls like us that means we live in a tiny village because cities, even towns, they have Zaras. Yes, that’s how we define the importance of a place. By the Zaras it has. Anyway, since rumor has it that we will enjoy the neverending charms of this Spanish brand really soon (and I hope this time rumors are true!) we’ve put together a selection of pieces that we can’t wait to buy when Zara finally opens its door in Bremen.
As you can see, we love the masculine vs. feminine style. From the perfect pieces to achieve cool casual looks: boyfriend jeans, cozy knits, chelsea boots or light blue shirts (2.,4.,7. & 11.) to the best items to create a comfy yet serious work outfits: beautiful camel or grey total looks, tailored skirts paired with denim or stylish carrot pants (5., 6., 8., 9. & 12.). We also would love to buy one of their coats (3. & 10.) whose checked prints we have learnt to love. We even would wear this kind of looks to an informal night out (1.)!
What do you think? Do you like this his and hers trend? Do you love Zara as much as we do? Will Zara finally open its doors in Bremen?
Ok, let’s be honest, this is more a “we dream about this!”, than a “we need this!”, though we love it so much that you can say that we really need it. Anyway! I’m talking about the Valentino’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Everything in these pictures is so wearable, so lovely, so comfy yet luxurious… We love it/need it/ daydream about it!

Even though German weather is not being that bad this Winter, it’s still cold. Quite cold. And since we know that terrible temperatures and snow storms will get here eventually, we can’t help but look for warmer coats. I saw this parka a few months ago and I have been thinking about it… I know parkas aren’t the best solutions for terribly cold weather, but I think this one can be the exception. It’s slim cut, wooden cloth and fur trim make it perfect to keep us warm during this season.
It’s called the Rumor Fur by Peuterey and you can buy it here.
This is LOVE at first sight. I
want need every single piece of Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Style.com describes it as Tomboy Glamour and I couldn’t agree more. The camel coats, the tailored pants, the rich fabrics, the subtle yet strong colours, the flats… I know that nothing particularly innovative but I’m in love! Come and see more images after the jump!
