 Céline s/s 2013                                                                                   Céline a/w 12/13

Finally spring has arrived, and I hope it's here to stay! Time to put away that thick wooly scarf to reveal one of my favourite accessories - the square silk neckscarf! I used to paint on silk myself and I just love the smaller square stlyes for that. It's a colourful, quick and easy style update to top up those trendy monochrome outfits with some colour à la Céline. The classic geometric ones are my favourites. And yours?


Dress for Less: Get the Chloé Look

I really like the entire ss13 collection by Chloé. Spotted a similar look at Mango with a cotton wide short sleeve sweater and geometric scarf print loose pants!


New Shades 2013

Karen Walker

What kind of sunglasses are you going for this year? Vogue says, pilot goggles  are going to be trendy, but I'm not sure about that one, bit freaky perhaps? Or are you going to carry on wearing last years cat eye shape? I always like the classic Ray Ban Wayfarer, but no need to buy any of these, cause Mr. has them in all colours and he goes hunting for them on ebay, that is the vintage black ones because they don't have Ray Ban written on the front!!! Erm, should I be worried? Anyway, this year I'd like to have some by Karen Walker preferably in tortoise shell, this woman does some mean styles!


Dicker Boot vs. Acne Alma Boot

Acne Alma Boot

This is for all you crazy dicker boots fans out there! By now they must have been worn through anyway, no? No? Ok, but if you're fed up with them here's an alternative by Acne, one of our favourite Scandi labels. And a budget version by ASOS. I think they are quite Rock n Roll.



Laurence Doligé Paris S/S 2013

"Laurence Doligé proposes collections where she mixes men’s wear, glamour, and Parisian femininity without hesitation. Her collections offer a complete look from head to toe: tops, pants, jackets, shoes, handbags, scarves and brooches... Not only does she propose a clothing line, but a complete style, a look that is both elegant, casual, sexy and rock ’n roll!" 

It's easy to wear, chic with a twist and I'd like all the sandals and the leopard dress for vacation please!!!


Attention seekers? Show offs? Circus?

"My idea of elegance - and this refers to women as well as men - is that someone is elegant when he or she shows a good knowledge of what fits them,"..."Where you can find naturalness and self-esteem.""Not showing off, "When you’re not thinking, "This is fashion," and you’re not buying clothes to create statements, you’re on the right path."

Stefano Pilati, Ives Saint Laurent's former creative director once said this in an interview with Vice Magazine. And yes, I couldn't agree more!
In a recent article with TMagazine, Suzy Menkes points out the ridiculousness of that "mob" of self aware people who deliberately get dressed to get noticed. Of course you will be noticed in a long neon green coat at fashion week on a dull February day, then the picture will appear on dozens of blogs and the rave comments underneath will be flooding in, and some kids will think this is the way to dress and try and emulate this sometimes unfortunate style on their personal style blogs. With the result that they look equally unfavourable or even worse. Thank God, in the real world this is not the case, but I think I can spot a blogger by the mile due to this specific style. So, where has the good taste gone to then? Well, I know it's definitely still there (in some blogs thankfully as well) but it just doesn't get photographed that much during fashion week, or may go unnoticed between the neon buoys shouting "look at me", and some of the well dressed crowd just might not want their picture taken.
