A white shirt

Vogue Italia March 2013 Kasia Smutniak by Vincent PetersSince I spotted this editorial featuring beautiful Kasia Smutniak in Vogue Italia March 2013, I kind of been having white shirts on my mind. I am always looking for the perfect white color, model, boy-friend-ish, and so on, and this editorial didn’t make my cravings go away… Love the simple look with the hair in a bun, the sleek watch and the hoop-earrings styled with the oversized shirt. It is such a useful piece and timeless piece in your wardrobe so I suggest you invest in shirt that is classic. Underneath I have gathered some cool, and classic, shirts that are available online right now. From top left: cotton-polpin shirt from Band of Outsiders, ‘Reese’ cotton-poplin shirt from Equipment, oversized striped silk and cotton-blend shirt from MiH Jeans and slender star-button shirt from Acne Studios.

Repossi

Gaia Repossi Jewelry - rings, necklace, earringsAs I mentioned in the previous post, I just had to show you some of the amazing pieces from Gaia Repossi’s line. All of them are favorites, of course… But if I had to choose one particular pieces I must say I am in love with the ‘Berber’ earring – both in 18 karat rosé-gold and white gold (the pieces in with the four rings in the middle of the pic). You can find the jewelry at Net-à-Porter, Barneys and Montaigne Market.

The Horsebit loafer

Gucci loafers 60th anniversary 1953 loafer

One of the most iconic loafers of all time is the Gucci Horsebit loafer. This year the classic shoe turns 60 years, created in 1953. The loafers has been re-made in new colours and are available at both Net-à-Porter and My Theresa, in popping colors of suede and classic leather like black and white. Through the years the shoe has not only been loved and adored by fashion people but also royals and iconic legends.

The Leonard pair

Illesteva Leonard 2 round frame acteate sunglasses

This round-frame acetate model above, from Illesteva, is one of my favourite styles in the Illesteva family of sunglasses. Totally dig the new print with olive, grey, creamy white and brown – although it reminds me of a pair of glasses from Céline S/S11. Anyway, if you have the same cravings as me, you can get the hip glasses right here.

Earclips

Love these amazing clip-earrings in 24-karat yellow gold from Oscar de la Renta. How long time hasn’t been since you used clip-earrings? I would probably drop them immediately, but great earrings though. Love the hammered structure of them and I bet they look amazing to style with simple dresses to all Christmas and New Years-parties. If you wanna get them, they are available here!

The perfect basics

So how many times haven’t you looked for a perfect basic tee? Or a tank that goes with just everything? I myself feels that I am constantly looking for those perfect basic – but never find them. Trust me, I’ve tried so many different brands but never found one to stick with. For an example, T by Alexander Wang – love the fit but lousy quality. Étoile Isabel Marant – great staples in linen jersey, but – bad quality there as well. Anyway, I saw these pieces from the L.A-based brand Kain and I really fell for the fit. Maybe I should ‘try’ some pieces from Kain – it could be the basics I am looking for. You can find Kain here!
