We need this! JCrew… again.

27 Aug

JCrew_Fall_2014_6And 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. JCrew_Fall_2014_5 JCrew_Fall_2014_4
How cool are those bermudas? (And that’s a sentence I never thought I would say….)

We need this! Summer coordinates

23 Jul

Matchy-matchyI’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.
Matchy-matchy2From 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 need this! Sales!

18 Jun

Summer sales 2014
This week is a joyful one: Summer begins and brings the sales with it! Even though we live in a neverending Autumn/Winter season, we always get excited with sales. It doesn’t matter that we don’t need sandals or light dresses. But! Since we are pragmatic (or maybe boring?), we try to look for basic timeless pieces. These are on our wishlist:

1. A girly dress: Isn’t this colour wonderful? I’m sure it looks gorgeous with a sunkissed skin. They also have it in black, which is also beautiful.

2. A white blazer: I’ve been looking for a white blazer and this one is fantastic. I love the classic cut and the faux snakeskin leather collar. It makes it different but still wearable.

3.  Statement earrings: I usually wear tiny earrings but these ones are so fun and Summerish that  I love them. I probably would feel a little bit Carmen Miranda wearing them, but still.

4.  This dress/shirt is sold out online. But I have to find it! I’ve seen it in lots of magazines and blogs but I don’t care if everyone wears it. I want it too!

5.  A basic white shirt: plain and simple. If this is not a basic timeless piece I don’t know what it is.

To be honest, we usually fell for pieces that are not on sale and we end up coming back home with a bag of new season items. Does that happen to you to? These next two pieces would be those not on sale finds that we would take home with us anyway.

6. The best camera bag: because we hate all those huge backpacks to carry our camera with us. This one is pretty, huh?

7. Leather espadrilles: this is a little bit of a splurge. But aren’t they beautiful? And basic? And timeless?

We need this! Shophia Webster for JCrew

7 May

JCrew_shoes

JCrew has presented its new collaboration with the British designer Sophia Webster and we just love it. We love it because it’s JCrew and you all know we have a soft spot for JCrew. And we love it because after seeing those terrible ugly shoes everywhere, it’s refreshing to come across a selection of girly, beautiful shoes.

Our favourite ones are Pippa and Poppy (we love the names too, by the way). Nicole has the cutest print, though. And the polka dots of Anneka and Penelope are adorable and sexy at the same time.

They woul look lovely with boyfriend jeans an a basic tee, but I can see them with a little black dress too. They are the perfect statement shoes to dress up any basic outfit.  If you want them you’d better hurry up! They are almost sold out!

What do you think? Aren’t they beautiful?

We need this! Silver feet

25 Feb

Metall_Shoes_collage
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 need this! Basics & classics

19 Feb

basic_and_classic

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.

Our love is deeper everyday

No, I’m not talking about us and the upcoming Saint Valentine fuss. I’m talking about JCrew. You know we love it. We adore it. Even our wedding dresses were JCrew. But after visiting their store on Regent Street in London we are just head over heels.

In my suitcase: the velvet blazer

29 Nov

Velvet Blazers

This month is going to be all about series! Apart from our Xmas series, we will be adding a weekly post about those items that we think should be in your suitcase this holidays.

Lets start with an old classic: the velvet blazer. This piece will dress up a simple jeans and white shirt look, it can be the perfect way to warm up your party outfits and adds a lovely masculine touch that makes every girl look cooler. It’s like the grown up fancy sister of the leather jacket!

1. Black velvet and black satin equals elegant and super sexy party look. Pair it with a pencil skirt or sharply cut pants.

2. If you are looking for comfort and a boho party look try this blazer together with an embroidered vintage top and harem pants. Add a lovely strappy sandal to achieve that festive look.

3. This is the basic version. Perfect with jeans, shirt and a pair of loafers. Great for family lunches and Christmas shopping sprees.
Black velvet and black satin equals elegant and super sexy party look. Pair it with a pencil skirt or sharply cut pants.

4. Splurge in a classic piece that will last forever, like this midnight blue blazer. The colour is amazing and it will make you look like a million dollars!

5.  For a casual vibe, wear this printed velvet blazer with and a knit sweater underneath, skinny jeans and some good tan leather boots. Or Converse/Supergas if you are lucky and you don’t spend your holidays in a very cold place. If that’s the case: we really envy you!
