I saw this exact picture in a magazine a couple of weeks ago and since then I’ve been dreaming about this outfit. That jacket, sigh! The cut, the neutral colours, the belt, those stripes strategically placed to enhance the waist and the shoulders… Perfection!
I normally won’t like such a matchy matchy outfit, but in this case I love how the stripes of the skirt lengthen the silhouette. Whithout being overly girly, the results is no doubt ultra feminine.
It’s quite pricey, though… but it could be a great investment for your working looks, don’t you think? You can buy it here.

From the creators of We need the Mulberry Willow tote and We need the Givenchy Antigona bag… We need the Boy from Chanel!!!
I’m still searching my It bag, that timeless investment, that beauty which will dress up all my outfits… and deciding which one to buy is almost impossible. But this Boy is unexpectedly rising on my list. In such a short period of time it has become a classic already, isn’t it? I love the black leather version, but the velvet jewel tones are so pretty… Decisions, decisions…
I love love love this Michael Kors tote. It would be perfect for long Summer days with its vibrant citrus stripes, don’t you think? Actually I first saw it in navy and I really liked it but I find the citrus version more interesting. It would look perfect with a total denim look, jeans and a flower print tee, or a nice long white dress. It’s also perfect for travelling! I’m already thinking about the most appropriate destinations to take this lovely number for a ride… You can buy it here. And what about this tiny clutch? You can use it as a purse together with the tote or alone during long casual Summer nights!

Sabrina Meijer is one of our favourite bloggers, she’s been on our blogroll for years. Her clean, simple, avant-garde style is unique. She really is different from the rest of the fashion bloggers who wear everything that is trendy. She has a strong sense of style and we admire her for that.
So when we saw a little AfterDRK label on Instagram we felt super curious and excited. Was she creating her own collection?
I’m sure you have seen this… I don’t know how to call it! Skirt? Culotte short? Skort? The white one is all over the blogosphere! I really like it, though I prefer the little blue number.
I would wear it with my New Balance sneakers and a simple tee, a kind of casual chic look. What do you think?

If you follow us you should know by now that we love French brands (clic, clic, clic). During our last trip to Paris we discovered Pablo, the new line of Gerard Darel, and we just fall in love with its simple cuts, refine textures and elegant pieces. We loved them even more when we knew that their motto was the famous quote by Oscar Wilde “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken”!
Here you have our favourite pieces from their lookbook, if you’d like to see…
I’m still searching for my it bag. It has to be beautiful and practical with a classic touch. Not too trendy because I see it as an investment and I’m all for timeless pieces. The Givenchy Antigona bag was high on my list, but the Celine Phantom bag and Loewe’s Amazona are always on my mind. Well, now I have a new candidate. The Mulberry Willow Tote. It’s the perfect bag if you love travelling like I do. You have a tote and a clutch that you can carry together! Genius! Two bags in one! Imagine: you carry your tote to wander through the street markets and then you have a super nice clutch for a fun night out! Let’s see… It’s beautiful, practical and a bit classic: Do we have a winner?

Even though we keep dreaming about sandals, light dresses and short shorts, we can’t wear them yet. Sad face. So let’s be realistic and think about the real German Spring: cold temperatures, constant rain and some occasional ray of light that got lost in its way to the south. With these beautiful weather conditions ballerinas, strappy sandals and slippers are out of the question. That’s way we have put all our attention in the new Nike dunk sky high City Pack sneackers. Aren’t they super cool? They will be released on March 27th, that is next week!!!
You know we love The Kooples (clic) but really, we just can’t help it because they make their lookbooks for us, they really do. We are nothing like their features couples, that’s for sure, but these two looks are so us that we are freaked out! That yellow dress is so me… and that suit is so her…
Today I want to talk you about something unique. In a world where everyone buys, eats, wears and does the same things, we have found someone who believes in real affordable exclusivity. Two weeks ago we met Alba, the life an soul of AB, in an improvised East London showroom and we immediately fell in love with this new jewelry line, AB by Antonio Bayona.
Antonio Bayona has worked as an artisan jewlery maker since 1970. Now he has teamed with a group of young designers to create this little but oh so nice line with 10 different rings. If you order your own AB ring, it would be made just for you. Literally. This is not a huge shop where thousands of rings are waiting to be bought… this ring would be made thinking about you. From scratch. And in about a week you will receive this little avant-garde black box.
But you know what I love the most about this rings? It’s not the amazing design, the über cool package or the fact that they are hand crafted. The detail that just got me was the size adjustor. Invisible from the outside, two little pieces will help you to get the perfect fit. So if you have tiny fingers like me, this rings are just for you!!
They have 4 collections: AB negatives, Facette (my personal favourite), Lovers and Sylvan. Since we didn’t capture the rings as they deserve (our improvised showroom didn’t have enough light but it sure had a very nice breakfast menu ;) here you have some proper photos from AB line’s web.
And last but not least, if you really want something a little more special, Antonio Bayona offers you the possibility to create a totally exclusive piece of high jewelry… the sky is the limit, go get crazy! Look at this ring and necklace. Even the inside and back sides are cute, those little moons and stars! Sigh!
If you feel different, if you know you are different, AB is for you. Buy them here!
