nicolas andreas taralis

One day, I met the perfect coat. It was everything you could ask for: long and thin sleeves, a military touch, beautiful buttons, soft and precious fabric, perfect tailoring, and it was black, which to me is "the color". It was made by Nicholas Andreas Taralis.

it's all about the shoes

After careful consideration, I've decided to blame Cinderella for my life long quest of the perfect shoe. It's no wonder that little girls exposed to the story, grow up under the strong influence of this single thought: it's all about the shoes. Isn't it the girl with the perfect feet which fit the perfect shoe that got the perfect prince?

absolutely fabulous

Remember Prada women campaign? Amazing, right? (If you don't remember it you can find it here). Anyway, if you liked that campaign, you are going to love this one! Prada Fall 2012 ad campaign features Gary Oldman, Jamie Bell, Garrett Hedlund, and Willem Dafoe. Yes, that's right, all 4 of them! And it is absolutely fabulous!

topshop ties the knot with richard nicoll

Topshop has always been one of my favorites! I love their designer collaborations, their fall Unique collection is amazing and they are the only high street brand to show at London Fashion Week! I can always rely on something in their collection for mixing high and low. Plus, since they have online sopping, I like them even better.

ss 2012 playlist

It's the music festivals season! And we have a lot to be thrilled about: a new album from The Big Pink, Florence + The Machine also released a new album and are now on tour and there is a new album from The Black Keys. Personally, I cannot wait to see The Big Pink and The Vaccines play live (ever since I discovered them by watching online Coacella).

And in this season's spirit, I was thinking to share with you 2 things:
1. my favorite pic of festival fashion - Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at Coacella
2. my music playlist for this summer which I keep playing and playing and playing...

go couture!

After announcing the ending of D&G line, Dolce & Gabbana revealed another surprizing development of their fashion brand: a couture line. Being fashion’s best kept secret, the collection was displayed in an invitation only, exclusive show that took place in Sicily (Domenico Dolce’s place of birth).

Last year I discovered the perfect cape. It was quilted, so for winter, but made of silk, with a high collar and a beautiful geometric shape. I was inlove. Then, I discovered it was made by Peachoo+Krejberg, of which (I am ashamed to admit) I never heard before.

But better late then never, I started getting familiar with the Indian+Danish designer duo and their modern and unique collections that make you want to buy every single piece.

fabulous and in sale!

I'm a huge fan of online shopping. I'm brave enough to purchase anything online: shoes, trousers, dresses, sunglasses. I even bought my wedding dress online so you can see I mean it!
But the best part of online shopping is SALES! That start much earlier than in shops and with a huuuge selection of beauties that you cannot resist. A disaster for bank accounts everywhere.

So there you have it, a small selection of wonderful things that are now a bit cheaper and a bit closer to our wardrobes:

1. Miu Miu clutch bag; 2. Neil Barrett jmpsuit; 3. Rick Owens leather jacket; 4. Rick Owens top; 5. Cos dress; 6. Stella McCartney swimsuit; 7. Alexander Wang wallet; 8. Nicholas Kirkwood sandals

looking forward to...

Christmas time! Not because of the gifts and the carols and the dinners but also because that's when a fabulous movie is released: The Great Gatsby. Check out the trailer: the image, the styling, the clothes, the parties. And the music, ah, the music.... Flawless.

God, I hope it's a good movie and it's not just the trailer. That would simply ruin my Christmas. Well, not really, but it would still be sad.

fabulous boots

I know it's waaaaaaay too early to think about autumn BUT these Alexander Wang boots are totally fabulous. I have been dreaming about them ever since I saw the Fall 2012 RTW collection in February. Simply love Alexander Wang!
