Here is a little gift guide for some fashionistas! For the fashionable jet setter: Del Toro ‘New York’ slippers in light grey suede, a Smythson note book called ‘Brunch Lunch Suppers Dinners’, a Balenciaga travel luggage bag, a croco embossed cosmetic bag from Alexander Wang, the most goregous shoulder bag right now – from Céline, a pair of hippie stylish sunglasses from Victoria Beckham, a camera from Edelweiss and some fragrences – these ones comes from Byredo and Grace.
For the golden girl: A golden choker from Chloé, set of gold-tone rings from Maison Martin Margiela, a sheer blouse from Acne, a golden jersey from Stella McCartney, a lovely reptile clutch from The Row, a YSL clutch called ‘Belle de Jour’ (with the old monogram), a super duper lovely fringe bag in metallic from Givenchy and a pleated skirt in creme from Giambattista Valli.
If I could only wish for one thing it would be a Valentino shoulder bag. It’s definitely on top of my wish list right now. I really like the Va Va Voom bag in black but I kind of dig this petite one (underneath) as well.
Okey, I know there’s a lot of Chloé-posts on the blog at the moment, but I can’t get the brand of my mind. Ever since Clare Weight Keller took over as the Creative Director in 2011, I have more and more fallen head-over-heels over the previous collections. I mean sure, Hannah McGibbon was almost some kind of rockstar within the business, and don’t get me wrong, she is a star, but there something very attractive with the ‘new-old’ design. Anyway, I just had to post these pictures from the Chloé Resort 2013 colletion. These three styles are my absolute favourites. I must have those wooden and black leather heels, they are amazing. Some Chloé Resort 2013 pieces has been released in the webshops already, but not yet these… Another piece that I am craving is the black off-the-shoulder dress. Beautiful!
So I spotted these while back on Elin Kling. She got them a few months ago and I thought they were cool but not anything I would wear. And then, bam! I am obsessed (as with everything else…). So I started to look for them and they were sold out everywhere! But when I was in London, two week ago I went by the Tod’s store and they had one pair left, in 35,5! Yeez, trust me, I squeezed my feet so much until they were blue, but I just had to accept they were to small. So they’re still haunting me, even if I know I wouldn’t be wearing them for at least 3 months. But I have to have them, yup. Oh, the loafers are Tod’s and from their 2012-2013 fall collection.
My wish list is so loooong for the moment but here are four things I crave the most: a croco embossed black leather clutch from Little Liffner, a pair of soft leather olive green loafers from Tod’s (I am hooked on Tod’s for the moment, don’t know why), a pair of slouchy baggy leather pants from Gucci (the riding horse pants) and a cosy turtle-neck knit in grey melange from Jardin des Orangers.
So I get some kind of bag cravings every now and then – and for the moment I am in that period. I want a new bag and I haven’t got a clue of which one I want or need. Well, I do “need” a shoulder bag in a smaller size but I’m not sure… It’s wearable and chic but for an everyday use? I am not sure. So I am looking at these Trapeze-bags from Céline. They look quie cool and they are not as ‘hyped’ as all of the other models. I do love the colours as well. Underneath you see another bag I’ve been looking at, the Céline classic medium flap bag in mirror calfskin. It is very cool but I am not sure… Huge problems huh?
I saw this amazing bomber jacket on Rebecca (the Women’s wear buyer at Browns Fashion) and she looked real amazing in it. Then I spotted that Columbine had the same, and looked super nice in it as well (of course, she fits in everything). So now the cravings starts! It’s the bomber above, from swedish Carin Wester. and the beautiful pic above is from Style By issue 11. I’m not sure you can buy the jacket yet, but very very soon. I want it real bad!
I need a new calender and there are no better calenders than the one from Smythson. Classic, timeless and cool pieces in different colours and textures. This one above, the ‘Panama’ diary is in leather crocco-effect. You’ll find it here.
