Perfection in a size S

Needless to say this was what was in the dustbag a few posts down. How beautiful is this beauty? The colour is divine and although simple is the key word to describe it there is something about the simplicity that makes it everything but boring... It fits just the right amount of stuff and keeps you from doing what is so easily done - bringing half of your home out with you when you're going out for the day (or night). This bag is the smaller version of the Celine trio, I like the smaller version better because I think it adds something extra, but the big one is just slightly boring in my eyes... I don't know, it's one of those weird things you can't explain, you just feel....

Anyway, enough about Celine and on to new conquests - I am planning a slight shopping spree coming up and I thought I would share what's on my list so far.... Pop in tomorrow for an image-version of my shopping list, which includes a new phone - YAAAAAY!!

Isabel Marant for H&M

... And here comes the obligatory post that you knew was coming. The Isabel Marant x H&M collection imagery has finally been released, I saw it first on Wednesday. My thoughts are quite predictable, I love her designs, and have several pieces from her already, but for some reason I have a hard time seeing myself buy these bits? Not because they aren't amazing, they are, but they feel.... Old. I feel like they have been done before in her main line and in Etoile, and then I feel like I would in that case just rather buy the real deal... Which is the truth, her inspiration for this H&M collection was taken from her past collections, and the goal was to make more affordable best sellers out of what has already been done. But for me it becomes less exciting this way, especially given that I have worked with her clothes for almost two years now, so I know the collections quite well.

But either way, the styles above are my faves. The trousers in the first picture are almost identical to a pair from Etoile AW12 and the trousers in the third picture are quite similar to a pair from Etoile AW13 that you can find in store now... Other than that I love the jackets in picture 1 and 2 and I have been searching for the perfect leather trousers for a few years now... So could be some pieces of interest... Also, just have to say that I love Alek Wek modelling for this line <3. See the whole collection here

What's in the dust bag?

Hint 1: Dust bag means it's either a bag or shoes...
Hint 2: Awkward current Celine obsession...
Hint 3: That strap coming out of the dust bag...

If you still can't figure out the answer to the question in the title.... I may reveal my new buy tomorrow. Stay tuned...

When in Stockholm....

Bag - Proenza Schouler, top - Acne, skirt - H&M (old), shoes - Celine

As I mentioned earlier, a few weeks ago I attended Stockholm Fashion Week. Although I wouldn't consider myself one of the best dressed, or most uniquely dressed, out of the people you meet there, I still thought updating the blog with one or two outfits could be nice. I wore this one of the three days, and was absolutely boiling. Might I add that this was at the end of August?

I am beginning to see a pattern with the skirts uploaded on this blog.... They all have (old) next to them. Is that my way of hinting to myself that new skirts are a necessity?

Well anyway, there isn't much else to say about this outfit, I love those shoes, just love, but what else is new...? The bag has been my trusted companion for around three months now, and actually there has recently been a new addition to my handbag-collection (which so far only consists of two proper bags but oh well, you have to start somewhere)... Pop in soon to see the update on a picture....!

Celine ponyhair leopard loafers

This is old news for those of you who know me, but these babies deserve an introductory post before thrown in with a whole outfit, although they would probably make that outfit, but still. Bought them in the early spring and oh lord are they uncomfortable but I'm working on it, because the beauty is too much. Ponyhair and leather. 

Celine did another version for SS13, with a strap over the front, which turned out to be WAY more comfortable. Yes I am beating myself up just slightly over not finding those first but that doesn't mean I'm going to reject these ones....... However, I may buy in to the other version in a navy, I'm in love and having trouble falling out of it....

Yes, I definitely have a weakness for shoes... And clothes... But you can't forget those little extra things that make a difference in your daily life. I am one of those people who love to add a little something extra to my everyday life, such as a luxurious scented candle, nice hand-soap and hand-cream, or a special perfume. The photo above represents some "new ins" when it comes to my everyday routine - a Byredo scented candle and a Byredo perfume. Just having them stand on a shelf in my room makes my day a little bit better, I love the look of them. The smell, of course, is... Well, perfect. For me anyway.

Stars in silk

As promised an official outfit post with my Etoile Isabel Marant star trousers. They are just so comfortable...! I have actually worn them a lot this summer, the fact that they are silk means they make you feel cool on hot days and always... refreshed, in a way? It's hard to explain. The only problem is that I am finding the different looks I can create with them limited... Or maybe I am just not using my imagination enough....

Anyway, in this picture I wore them with an open back top and then threw on a loose sweater when the wind started blowing.... The weather in London right now is crazy hot so if it stays this way these trousers will show up here again quite soon I suspect...

Wearing my bow

Today I wore my new Maria Nilsdotter ring, a little golden bow. I love it so much because it is so cute and unique, and really adds to an outfit, more than you would think. I also love the fact that I chose a size good for my index finger, which is a finger I usually don't wear rings on, but actually kind of love wearing rings on...? It was an amazing birthday gift from my lovely friend, which makes this ring so much more perfect.

As for the iPhone featured in this photo.... Suffice it to say I am looking forward to what Apple will be announcing on the 10th September, this phone has now definitely passed its golden years.

Tshirt - Acne, skirt - Topshop (old), bag - Proenza Schouler, shoes - Chloe

As promised, here is the rest of the outfit from the previous post. Nothing too exciting but let me introduce you to something else I have been living in this summer (besides the tshirt).... These ballet flats from Chloe are the most comfortable shoes I think I have ever worn. The leather is the softest thing, and the colour is perfect for summer. And I have always loved those waves - remember the Chloe bikini with the same waves? Must have seen it first like five years ago and it is STILL on my wish-list, so tricky to find though? The sad thing about these flats is that they have stretched so much that they are far too big for me now. Ah well, probably for the best though, I have worn them so much they are practically ruined so I need to get a new pair next spring anyway. But my piece of advice - go down half a size...


Back from a vacation trip to Stockholm, which is why the posts have been non-existent. Will post more later but just wanted to introduce you to my favourite piece in my wardrobe at the moment, this T-Shirt from Acne. It's called Copy and is 100% linen and A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I am practically living in it, which I'm not liking because it means it will end up in rags soon but I just can't help it - the comfort, fit, colour and style is perfect. 

As I said, posts about my trip will come, I actually timed it perfectly as I managed to attend Stockholm Fashion Week as well. Will also post a full outfit picture....

(Oh, and the outfit I promised to post a while ago will come up as well...)
