You can get to the site by clicking on the banner at the bottom of this post), but at the moment they have their best offer yet: Gorgeous Nanette Lepore dresses for amazing prices.

The only thing that honestly disturbs me is that I can't decide which one is the prettiest!

Today I'm loving...

Kate Middleton's perfectly matched outfit in this picture.
I've never been a big fan of royalty, but I have to say that Kate manages to impress me a lot. But maybe that's just because she seems to love Alexander McQueen (the coat dress is from the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2011 collection)? That is one of my absolute favorite brands as well.

But I have to say I really love the shoes, the hat and the bag as well. They are all perfectly matched, and while some people say that's oldfashioned, I think it is just the opposite: It shows that she is able to do things her own way, no matter what may or not be fashionable at the moment. Gotta love that!

Net-a-Porter sale

I just noticed that Net-a-Porter's sale has already started. And boy, do they have some good stuff for sale!

Or what do you think of these Miu Miu Jewel-embellished jacquard ballerina flats?

This adorable Diane von Furstenberg Lauriston tiered ruffle silk-chiffon dress?
Adorable Lanvin flats? (Lanvin makes the best ballet flats in the world if you ask me!)

More pics from my vacation

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I am on a holiday now. I have been travelling in Sweden and Denmark, and have managed to do quite a bit of shopping, as well as eating and drinking really well. So I am very pleased with my short vacation.

Here are two of my own pics of the hotel I am currently staying at:

It really is very nice!

But soon I will have to go back home, back to work and I will also be blogging more frequently again, about more fashion related things!

Today I'm loving...

Anna Sui's Resort 2011 collection.

It's full of girly, beautiful dresses, so even though I am always kind of undecided about Anna (sometimes she does the most awesome things, and sometimes her pieces are a bit dissapointing), I have to say that I am a huge fan of this collection!

Today I'm loving...

Adina Plastelina's gorgeous hand made millefiori jewelry.

I had the privilege to actually visit the workshop where these pieces are made a while ago, and they are even more beautiful in real life!

This is what the workshop looks like:

I think I will get a charm bracelet from this company, and then add charms every once in a while to keep it less expensive.

Today I'm loving...

... how Swedish Acne is using pastels in their Resort 2012 collection.

And I have to say, the styling is really cool as well!

As a long time fan of pastels in all shapes and forms, I always get a bit excited when I see them making a comeback.

New blog

Lately, I have been so into beauty products, instead of fashion and accessories, that I decided to start a new beauty blog, besides the blogs I already have. If you are interested in reading more about the beauty products I buy and what I think of them, please visit the new blog "Beauty made fun" here.

(I'm still working on the design and stuff, so don't get scared if something looks a bit off!)

What I have been doing so far this weekend

- I went shopping for wedding presents (and did manage to find quite a few nice things)
- I did some beauty related shopping for myself
- I went to the cinema
to see the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie (I know they are rather silly, but somehow I still rather enjoy them), Stranger Tides.

- I found a new favorite pizza place. A place that makes French, not Italian, pizza, of all things. And though it sounds rather strange, it was actually really tasty!
- I bought around 20 new books.

So shortly, I will be off to the beach with one of them, to just relax in the sun.

Have a great weekend everyone!

New scent: Liberte by Cacharel

I've always been a huge fan of Cacharel, both as a brand in general, and of their perfumes in particular. They have made several great scents over the years (Amor Amor and Anais Anais, and Eden and LouLou in particular are absolute classics when it comes to scents) so I decided to try a newer scent as well. I ended up getting their new (well, it was first released in 2007) scent Liberte, that comes in a charming orange bottle:
The scent is quite summery. with several warm spices, citrus fruits, patchouli, vetiver and vanilla all in the mix, so I like this scent for summer evenings and parties. It's not a scent to be worn during the day though, the scent is a bit too heavy for that, if you ask me.

But all in all, I have to say I really love Liberte. It's a great new addition to the Cacharel scent family! (I'm not sure it beats Eden, which is my favorite Cacharel perfume, though)

Today I'm loving...

Mila Kunis in this beautiful flower top.

She looks stunning and the top is just so unusual and chic, all at once. I have no idea who made it though...

Today I'm loving...

... this adorable dress from Red Valentino.
But that's no wonder, really, I have always been a huge Valentino fan and I love this color combination, as well as lace.

It really makes the perfect party dress, don't you think?

Today I'm loving...

These adorable Alexander McQueen skull flats.
I have the matching scarf, and I like matching things, so this would really suit my wardrobe rather well.
