Self Service Magazine always list their essentials for the annual summer vacation. Well, not their own essentials, more or less people in their surroundings and peeps in the industry. I have just recently been in Italy and one of the stops where in Positano, where you can find a beautiful selection of straw bags. There were so many chic bags you get craze mazed, like this Pampleonne basket above from Sarah Lavoine, and I really wanted to get one but didn’t know how to pack it on my way home… Classic, right?
This editorial with Doutzen Kroes in Vogue UK Januray 2013, photgraphed by Josh Olins, gives me major cravings for a long vaccation somewhere warm. I wouldn’t mind strolling down a beach in metallic silver shorts, bikins and flat sandals. I think that would be my number one gift on the wish list for this year. Anyway, a little to late to think about that now. But at the meanwhile, enjoy these beautiful and inspiring pictures instead.
