Just spotted these golden accessories from the Chloé Fall 2013 collection. I am crushing over the rings – something that I am looking for at the moment. I don’t usually wear that much gold jewelry, but during the summer I find it beautiful to sun kissed skin. This brass collection is called ‘Bettina’ and you can find the accessories in store now.
I just found some super nice budget rings from Zara. When it comes to rings I actually have a hard time to buy costume jewelry just because they loose their glance after a while. So the pieces I know are classic and timeless, I try to buy in either gold or sterling silver. Then you don’t have to worry about them getting drab. But when it comes to trend-pieces, that I am not sure of if I will end up using or not, I totally go for the budget ones. Especially like the Céline-ish inspired rings above from Zara. Underneath, inspiration and rings from Chloé Fall 2013.
I am in love with Eddie Borgo for the moment. There are some amazing pieces in his previous collection, and up-coming for that matter as well. I would love a golden necklace in gold for this summer, styling it both for everyday and for a night look. Love the way Elizabeth and James showing their golden necklace in their resort 2014 collection (see previous post), pairing it with denim. Such a beautiful combination.
My current obsession is a pair of white pumps, especially know for the summer. I spotted super cool Carine Roitfeld in a pair during the fashion weeks, which she of course looked great in. Anyway I dig the way Natalia Vodianova is styled above, with a chunky knit and a silky negligé – and of course a pair of white pumps. Gorgeous Natalia is captured by Alasdair McLellan for WSJ Magazine June 2013. Underneath you can see two pair from the brand Gianvito Rossi, that has the most comfortable shoes! You can find them here and here.
Speaking of that gorgeous vest from Stella McCartney…. I put together a safari inspired look for a vacation somewhere exotic. From the top left: Stella McCartney Georgina Utility Vest in khaki green, white tank from T by Alexander Wang, gold necklace from Repossi, chunky black ribbed pullover from Alexander Wang, ‘Shiney Drape’ skirt from Filippa K, t-strap sandals from K. Jaqcues St. Tropez, tanned leather ‘Pandora’ bag from Givenchy, silk scarf from Hermès, round-framed ‘Pascal’ sunglasses from Acne Studios, dark green ‘Obsedia’ clutch and olive green canvas luggage, both from Givenchy.
Clare Waight Keller has created a stunning collection for this fall. I just love the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered! As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette. I have got a pair of favorites. First of all, I am in love with the chunky golden rings with the stones. They somehow reminds me of a collection I have seen before but I am not sure which jewelry line. Anyway, the grey shearling coat was amazing as well as the short bomber in tweed with fur details. The brown croco bag is a winner and it will probably hang on every fashionistas arm this fall. Although I think it has to many similarities with some Givenchy designs – it’s like a hybrid between the Antigona bag and the Nightingale. Maybe a winning concept though.
Here above you’ll see some stuff that is on my mind right now (love the idea of dressing in white in the winter – super sophisticated!). ‘Hunston’ chunky knit turtleneck from The Row, white flared-denim jeans from Emilio Pucci, a python shoulder bag from Chanel, silver metallic classic pumps from Jimmy Choo, 18-karat gold and diamond ring from Diane Kordas and the lovely Balmain ‘Amber Gris’ from Balmain.
I am all about chunky bohemian and chic jewellry when I am going out. For an everyday use I like wearing more subtle and simple pieces but for dressing up I love wearing statement jewellery like my Lara Bohinc earrings. So when I found these beauties above, from the Australian brand Mezi, I fell head over heels in love. I wouldn’t mind wearing all of the rings, at once (!) since I love a chunky knuckle and mixing rings together. From their AW12 collection I found some earrings as well… Love the idea of styling them with simple pieces to create a focus around the jewellery. You’ll find them here.
