I’m just back from Italy. That means I’m rethinking my wardrobe. Should I wear more heels? More glittery accessories? Do I need a pair of Hogans? Are my boyfriend jeans my worst enemy? Should I make pencil skirts my uniform? I don’t know, everytime I visit Italy I want to be girlier, I want to dress up every day and Sofía Loren becomes my style icon. But then I go back to my normal life, see images like these and I remember that I am a casual style / flat shoes / messy hair kind of woman. Besides, now that I’ve discovered this brand, AYR, I’m thinking that the feminine Italian style can wait a little longer. Maybe until I turn 40? Continue reading
When you are a lazy dresser like we are and your main priority is comfort, cross body bags are a must. While we love a nice tote bag, this season we are looking for the best cross body bag to run errands and travel in style. It has to be light, compact, pretty (obviously) and has to fit our camera. Here are a few options, from the most expensive brands to the most affordable high street labels.
1. This is our favorite. It has a vintage vibe, inner and outer pockets and it’s made in Italy.
2. Her name is Lily and it’s cute, isn’t it? The golden details make it classic and the deep green color is the epitome of Autumn.
3. And talking about color… this bag would look amazing with a monochromatic look. All black, all chocolate, all navy, all white, all burgundy… The possibilities are endless! Quite an investment piece, though.
4. The smallest of the list, but we love the brogue and fringe detailing to the front flap. A back to school bag!
5. Finally, the modern classic. Maybe too casual, but maybe the most appropriate for us?
This year I’m really looking forward to Autumn. I want to feel the crispy air and I want to finally master the layering techniques. That’s what Autumn is about, no? Oh, Autumn fashion… isn’t it the best? The famous layering, the colours, the textures… and this season I’m liking Zara! What? Yes! I find a little bit difficult to find nice pieces at Zara. On magazines, blogs and ads everything looks fine but then I don’t find those pieces in the shops. And if I find them, they just don’t look as… polished. Is it just me? Anyway, their Pre-fall collection rocks! Here you have some images, if you’d like to see…
And they’ve done it again. A gorgeous collection that just makes us want to forget any other brand and wear only JCrew. Always and forever. Ok, fine… maybe we are exaggerating a little bit but those looks? Stunning! For once, we are really happy about the crappy German weather. We can wear Autumn clothes again! And, according to JCrew, they will be grey.
How cool are those bermudas? (And that’s a sentence I never thought I would say….)
You know that we are longing for Autumn… but how can we not when we see images like these? Don’t you want to wrap yourself in a comfy cardigan, feel the cold in your rosy cheeks and enjoy a hot strong cup of coffe? I personally can’t wait. The new Mango lookbook is so inviting… it simply makes you want to buy everything and live in an eternal Autumn.
I’m back from holidays so it means it’s Autumn for me. I don’t care if we have almost a Summer month left. I have my eyes on September and I’m getting ready for it. Actually it’s a matter of survival: if I don’t think about Autumn I’m going to be depressed because everyone is still on holidays and I’m stuck at work. So! Let’s start reviewing Autumn collections! Maje is one of my favourite brands and I’m always looking forward their new collections. A friend of mine once said that they offer always the same pieces, different takes on basics and plain colours but… That’s exactly why I love it! They do wearable. And wearable is what I want.
I love this brand just because of the packaging. Don’t you think it’s gorgeous? These are the new additions to the Marc Jacobs beauty line. They say it’s luxury reinvented and judging by the wonderful reviews on the beauty channels, it has to be true. Of course I want it all. I have to admit that I’ve been a little obsessed with make up lately but those Kiss Pop lip colour sticks are so cute and bold! And I want all the shades of those Twinkle Pop eye sticks. All of them. Besides, don’t you think they are really compact and perfect for travelling?
They are a little bit difficult to find, but you can buy them online here. And watch all the little videos where Marc Jacobs himself explains something abut each product! What a touch!
PS: don’t get me started on the beautiful (and limited edition) nail polishes!
I’ve always liked to match my lipstick and my nail polish. The towels in my bathroom have the exact same shade as the blue tiles on the wall. The pillows on my sofa have to match the rug under the dining room table….What can I say? I love symmetry. So now that matchy-matchy outfits are back and coordinated bags and shoes are fashionable again, I just can’t be happier. Here you have my Summer coordinates picks amongs the lovely selection of JCrew.
From tan leather to stripe fabrics, coordinated bags and shoes always give your look a more polished finish. I know, I know, this is not exactly avant-garde, but it looks pretty and it’s easy to wear. You don’t have to struggle mixing prints or colours! For a lazy dresser like me, this trend ticks all the right boxes.
We love tiny delicate jewellery. That is what we wear… if we wear any jewellery at all. But I have a thing for statement necklaces. I just can’t help it. I think they immediately dress up an outfit, make it look more polished, 0riginal and edgy. I love them. Last week I discovered this brand, Toubab Paris, and I thought I had to include their work in this section because I really need one of its pieces. I really do. They look exotic… but they actually are hand-made in France. The designer, Maud Villaret, creates unusual pieces that bring together travel treasures, symbols, poetry and colour. And they are absolutely stunning. Don’t you think they would be the perfect accessory for your Summer looks?
