Delicate Diamonds.


I've been looking for simple gold and silver mini hoops for ages now and finally found the perfect selection from Stone Paris. On top of that I wouldn't mind the slightly bigger cross ones either...Hedvig Palm rocked the perfect ear party in a slightly older editorial from British Vogue: if you're not as afraid of piercings as I am and if you love the "barely there" style, make sure you look up J. Colby Smiths' work, piercings surely never looked this elegant. In the meantime I'm going to stay faithful to the simple, good old earrings. These Stone ones please. Thanks.

All black sneakers.


All black and with a touch of 90ies : I think these Neoprene Chanel sneakers are mighty fine.
And as usually with Chanel: mighty difficult to get your hands on as well.

I met these here at www.ebay.com

Puss Puss Magazine

Puss Puss is the kind of magazine I've been waiting for, without being cliché or sharing perfect menues for your kitty, it still focuses on two things I personally love: cats and fashion. Where has this magazine been all my life?! As a total catlady and fashion addict this is the perfect mix. I especially appreciate the gorgeous Anja K. editorial and the numerous pieces by Silken Favours, a talented lady who makes the quirkiest silk items - from shirts to cushions. Discover more new creative minds, beautiful photography and a lot of furry friends by ordering the first kickstarter issue on the website www.pusspussmagazine.com. Totally worth it, especially if you're as devoted to the feline species as I am.

Céline Fall Winter 2015


Daria Werbowy by Juergen Teller for Céline FW15 is nothing quite new but these boots are quite spectacular.
Unfortunately the price tag is as well. Still drooling over them.

A Hint Of Texas.

This season is cowboy season! If you have not crossed the guns and the sheriff stars yet, here are my absolute favorites:

Black and White Cardigan, (also available as a short sweater),  Golden Gun Bangle (available in 3 sizes), simple but yet effective black suede boots and golden revolver earrings for unpierced ears by Saint Laurent Paris.

Sheriff Star ring and shiny leather booties by Chanel. They have approximatively a ton of cowboy inspired items, just in case. No wonder since the theme of the collection was "Paris-Dallas".  Pictured above: Kristen Stewart being awesome in the new Chanel Ad Campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld. 
You can guess the collection.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Campaign

It is a clear departure from the Marc Jacobs Parent Line Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley wanted to illustrate with the Fall 2014 ad campaign - starting by casting their models from Instagram using the hashtag #CastMeMarc. In April thousands answered the call and  Hillier and Bartley narrowed over 70.000 entries to only 30 finalists to keep 9 for the camaign. The result is rebellious, young and urban: Shot by David Sims, the social media models were photographed in colorful hair, energetic poses and and eccentric prints to show the new direction of the brand. "It seemed like a great idea to me, as casting through instragram seemed cool, current, and strong," Jacobs said to WWD. "We wanted the ads to shout with youth and energy...to be fresh and reclaim the spirit that the collection had when we first conceived it - to be another collection, not a second line." 
Personal verdict: Awesomeness overload.

Sketchbook Fashion.


Doodles and sketches seem to be the latest hit for the upcoming season: Valentino, Mary Katrantzou and Carven all have the little drawings on their  Fall/Winter pieces; either embroidered (Mary Katrantzou) embroidered with pearls for a higher budget (Valentino) or simply printed on cotton (Carven.) The two sweatshirts and the dress above are all available at Colette at the moment.

The Dior Fusion Sneakers



When it comes to new trends, sneakers definitely win...well, let's say they share the pole position with Phoebe Philo's slides. The comfy trainers are everywhere, from blogger collaborations (Superga with Chiara Ferragni and Leandra Medine) to Haute Couture runways. Every brand seems to have their own perspective on the trainer ,but as you might know I've never had much love for that kind of footwear, even when King Karl discovered them for himself a few seasons ago at Chanel. That was until uber-talented sneakers expert (hint to his adidas collections) Raf Simons decided to bring them to the Dior Haute Couture runway and all the rest is history. It was love at first sight.  I don't think i have to mention how heartbroken I was to walk away from the color I wanted at the store instead of buying them, the sizes are all sold far too quickly that it's near impossible to find yours... I guess it was not meant to be. That doesn't change my love for these little pieces of art, just look at the making of video above: they are almost too precious to wear. In the meantime I'm going to look forward to the Fall/Winter 2014/2015 heels that include the same sporty touch as these Fusion sneakers.
