The girl in the Emerson Fry Lookbook should be me. Yep. That picture you see? That should be on my IG feed with the hashtag “packing”. And that should be my travelling outfit for when I go to any Mediterranean island to spend my holydays. But there is more…
If you follow us, you’d know that we spent last weekend in London. We had a great time! We visited Bailey’s Stardust exhibition, we wandered through the streets of Marylebone village and we shopped. That’s inevitable. Everytime we visit London we go shopping. I mean… who doesn’t? One of the highlights of our trip was the new collection by Whistles. Even though we already knew this brand, we never payed much attention to it, to be honest. But this time we were surprised by their sort of edgy Summer colelction.
We first saw the images of this campaign on Pinterest and we loved them right away. This collection is quite basic but that’s why it’s so versatile and amazing! We have to say that Madewell has done a great job with the campaign. Erin Wasson looks incredible, the setting is perfect and the finish product is absolutely aspirational. We want to be cool, sexy tomboys!
Ines de la Fressange is the kind of woman we want to become. Her style is natural yet sophisticated and she represents a lifestyle that we adore. More than a year ago we showed you the fantastic collaboration that she did for La Redoute (click) and now we’re obsessed with her work with Uniqlo. Those two dresses are my favourite pieces from the collection. Aren’t they perfect in their simplicity? But there is more…
We love flats. We hardly wear heels. That’s a fact. But we love heels… It’s just that we are lazy dressers. Nevertheless, we could change that for these shoes. These shoes are pretty. As simple as that. Pretty, pretty, pretty. And that’s a breath of fresh air among all those ugly flatforms, chunky boots, Adilettes and Bikkenstocks. SJP has created a stunning collection for those girls that, like me, miss Carrie. These shoes stand out, dress up the most basic outfit and, apparently, they are kind of comfortable. I love the colours, so bright, and the elegant shapes. Besides she has also designed a wonderful pair of flat sandals that I just love!
Only available at Nordstrom
PS: My friend T. sent me this video a couple of days ago. Have you seen it? Isn’t she lovely? And the house! Oh, the house!
Carven is one of those brands that always surprise us. It has a very strong personality but it’s kind of sweet at the same time. Their pieces don’t follow trends, they are special. In a world where we see the same things over and over again, Carven represents uniqueness.
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!
