Okey, so this spring is all about one particular shoe model – and that is the flat espadrille. I mean sure, they were an huge hype already last year when Chanel and Valentino released their logo and lace models, but they are still going strong for this year as well. And this season have not only Stella McCartney a few pairs in her collection (pink or yellow neon ones!), but also Fendi and Chloé. My favourites are still the Chanel pair (since I got them myself) but I kind of dig the Valentino ones as well. What do you guys think?

Love this look in so many ways – the red hat, the slouchy leather pants, the Spanish vibe and the gorgeous hair. Pic from the January issue of Vogue Russia 2013 by Paul Wetherell. In the same editorial you will also find some amazing rings… Can’t get them out of my mind! I think they are Delfina Delettrez but I haven’t got a clue of where I can find them. I have this really nice Maria Black ring that I use almost everyday, which reminds me of these ones. But one of the Delettrez rings would definitely complete the look.
I have the biggest crush ever on Valentino for the moment. There are som many great pieces in the Spring 2013 collection, I don’t even know where to begin! But my biggest fashion crush is the one I have on their leather goods collection as well as the shoe collection for this spring. I know that the studded collection isn’t new at all but there is something remarkable cool about this collection. Like the plastic see-through shoulder bag with beige details for an example, or the classic medium studded clutch in different kinds of colours and leather… When it comes to the clothing in this collection I can get enough of the girly yet very classy pieces, the lace and the mesh nor the snake print effects in everything from dresses to handbags. But the most amazing piece of all is the studded pvc trench coat (on the picture above). Well, it’s a great collection and hopefully we will see it in many stylish editorials and features this spring.
One of the most common shoes on Instagram right now (among the fashionistas) is definitely these espadrilles in delicate sheer lace from Valentino. So cute! They also come in red and white and you’ll find them here.
