C'est chic!

Black and white is always chic, so I think this maxi dress from Sass & Bide is really nice, and timeless.

Net-a-porter is also selling a t-shirt in the same fabric, which is also pretty awesome, but I still prefer the dress.

Today I'm loving...

... Rachel Bilson's cute pearl studded cardigan.

(And as for H&M the other day.... I just got some work out clothes, mostly for yoga, so nothing to see when it comes to that!)

Speaking of H&M...

... I love this scarf and gloves they have in stores right now. I have never been one for gloves and scarves in neutral colors (even though I do have some black scarves), I think it is much more fun to have colorful ones instead. Winter is dark and depressing enough as it is, so why not add a splash of color as often as you can?

Today I'm loving...

... this photo from an old Bottega Veneta campaign.

Have a lovely day, everyone! I plan to stop by H&M today for the first time in a while, so hopefully I'll be getting something new today. Fingers crossed!

Today I'm loving...

... this awesome outfit worn by Emma on Emsedge.
The red pants are just stunning, I need to get a pair too!

Sometimes I honestly get annoyed with myself over the silly, useless things I crave.

Like, who actually needs a Smythson passport cover...

and camera case?
Even though they are awfully cute and would really cheer me up on airports (which I hate! I don't mind flying at all but waiting in line for hours and hours at airports sucks!)...

Today I'm loving...

... this cute J Crew silk pajama from Net-a-Porter.

Every winter I buy several pairs of pajamas, which my fiancee thinks is really odd. He thinks people should not spend too much money on stuff they only wear in the house. Because "no-one sees them anyway!" and all. But I disagree.

It is really important for me to be able to relax when I am at home, and since I feel better if I wear something cute and comfy, I care about how my pajamas look and feel.

So every winter, I get a few new pairs and toss out a few old ones. So far I have gotten one new pair only, so I am sure I will be getting some more too!

My latest buy

This very Missoni-esque top actually fits right into my capsule wardrobe, since it has both black and grey in it. Not exactly what I needed to complete the capsule wardrobe, but a nice new addition anyway.

Sometimes you find inspiration in the weirdest places..

... and I say weird for two reasons:
1. I think Oprah seems great, but I have honestly only seen parts of her show once, so my knowledge on her is very limited (which is quite shameful considering how huge she is, I know!)
2. I have only visited once. And that was today.

And you know what? On my first visit to this site, I found a really inspirational pic, of this gorgeous Klein blue tunic. I just love it!
And the accessories are perfect too!

So hey, maybe I should visit Oprah's site a bit more often?

On my wishlist right now

I used to be really into interior design, but having decorated my apartment so it looks perfect (to me anyway) by now, it is not something I spend a lot of time on anymore.

But that was before I saw The Rug Company!

They have the most amazing rugs and pillow cases, designed by designers such as Alexander McQueen...

... Matthew Williamson...
... and Lulu Guinness.

Aren't these pieces just gorgeous? I really want to get the ones from Alexander McQueen!

I just love them!

Tiffany & Co always has the best ad campaigns. I'm totally smitten with their last one, but I also love these older ones.

Besides that, I am going shopping now. Hopefully I'll find the last missing pieces for my capsule wardrobe today (I did get two pairs of leggings yesterday)! Fingers crossed!

Wardrobe tales

I had the perfect pair of black pants once. If you are a girl who wears pants, I am sure you can understand how lucky I was.

They were a super-slimming Prada pair in a black stretchy fabric that never seemed to get stretched out or damaged. They made me look like I actually had a butt and made my legs look incredibly long.

I wore these pants everywhere, for a few years. Then the inevitable happened: they started breaking. I took them to a tailor and had them fixed, but they soon broke again. I went back to the tailor a few times until he told me he couldn't save them anymore.
And since then... I am constantly looking for a pair as gorgeous.

I think there are a few pieces of clothing that we all (even non-fashionistas) will remember for the rest of our lives. My pair of incredible Prada pants is definitely one of those pieces for me. I am pretty sure I will miss them until I find a pair as good, if not longer!

(the pic is not of my pants, mine were even cooler, but from Shopstyle)

Today I'm loving...

... this awesome Hervé Léger dress. But I sooo cannot pull it off! (these dresses are incredibly hard to pull off if you ask me!)

If anyone else is looking for the perfect, casual lace t-shirt, I just found a great one at American Apparel (and they also sell other awesome lace pieces if you are interested). Highly recommended!

Great new campaign!

I just love the new Hermes campaign for Fall 2010 (despite not being a Hermes owner myself. I don't even have a scarf! But I hope I'll get some Hermes for my collections one day...). So mysterious, yet cool and timeless, all at the same time!

Today I'm loving...

... Tibi's lace items. This lace dress is my favorite. So classic, yet with a twist!

My favorite color

I love Heidi Klum's shoes in this pic! I used to have a similar pair, but wore them out and never managed to find a good replacement, so I am really jealous of her!

Shoes like these really make an outfit pop, don't you think?

Today I'm loving...

... the gorgeous Ashish pieces Net-a-porter has started selling. They are so much fun and so colorful, perfect in order to cheer you up when it gets dark in the winter.

Today I'm loving...

... the Balmain Spring 2011 collection. Balmain managed to put together a kick ass collection once again, which is pretty impressive considering how great their last collections have been.

I love the silhouttes and the use of all the red, which looks great. And I've decided to splurge on a quite expensive leather jacket I've been eyeing after all, after seeing pics from this collection. If leather jackets will be good enough for Balmain next spring, they should be for me too!

Speaking of Mulberry...

... isn't this Mulberry dress (again, from their Spring 2011 collection) just fantastic? I love it!

New buys

I got two new, short biker jackets in leather yesterday. I have been thinking about getting a leather jacket for a while now, but I have been putting it off because I wasn't sure if I should really be focusing on leather jackets when I am trying to build a capsule wardrobe.

But in the end I could not resist (probably because someone stole my favorite leather jacket last year - yes, stole it! - and left me with only one, a grey one that I love, but that is not really suitable with all outfits), so yesterday I came home with one navy leather jacket and one black one.

(I know it looks like the same jacket, but it isn't, they're just both dark. And yes, I am looking for a new camera, so hopefully my photos should be better soon!)

Today I'm loving...

... this Mulberry skirt, from their Spring 2011 collection. The color is great, but the design is what really makes it super feminine and stunning.

But speaking of Mulberry, their Target collection was such a huge dissapointment for me. I was really looking forward to it, but I honestly did not like anything I saw so far.

Today I'm loving...

... these gorgeous, let simple and wearable maxi dresses from the Spring 2011 collection of Bally (a brand I love by the way, I have several vintage bags made by Bally).

I haven't seen any other bloggers mentioning this collection, which I think is a shame because it really is very well planned and looks great too.

Today I'm loving...

... the fact that I got this gorgeous issue of Harper's Bazaar yesterday.
Doesn't Drew Barrymore look stunning in these pics? She just seems to look better and better the older she gets, it's amazing!
