Vogue Paris Black on Black

vogue paris black-on-black


As Emanuelle Alt says in the new Vogue Paris: "L'automne sera noir." Autumn will be black.

I like the new layout of Vogue Paris, a well done face lift.

I really enjoyed the column of Garance Doré, I just love her writing, she makes me laugh and think, the perfect combination. I had to use my translate app quite a lot, but I managed. Reading Vogue Paris is the way I trie to reanimate my dying French.

For me autumn will be dark green, burgundy, black with some pops of red and of course my always beloved blue jeans blue. Once in a while I will dress in a monochrome "winter white snowfairy way"

Happy weekend everyone!

Coco noir

Coco noir

It's Fashion Week in Stockholm and the "big ones" are just around the corner. I love this time of the year, so curious what the designers create! I will not be able to attend any of the fashion weeks, but well, there are more and more other options to stay updated, my favorite is

I'm very much in to leather at the moment, well nothing special, everyone is....

The leather leggins are from Helmut Lang, the top from Alexander Wang, the perfect studded pumps from Isabel Marant, the mirror sunglasses from Marc by Marc Jacobs, the clutch from 3.1 Phillip Lim.

The Smythson Stamped Leather Soho Diary in purple would be my favorite place to make notes during the shows. There is actually an other option from Smythson, the fashion week notebook, but somehow I fell in love with this colored version.

The ring is from Kenneth Jay Lane. I think it's very beautiful and goes well with the palette of this outfit.

The nailpolish Frenzy from Chanel is my new favorite. It's a very sophisticated greishe with a hint of lavender, I love it!

Coco Noir is quite heavy, not for summer but perfect for fall and winter.

And now I'm off to buy the september issue Vogue Paris!

September issue Vogue Paris

Tomorrow I will have a couple of free hours. That doesn't happen very often on a Tuesday. I actually should do something for my fitness, but I decided, that I will be very lazy and just go and buy myself Vogue Paris, the September issue 2012. Then I will go to my favorite coffee place and feed my fashion cravings and relax. The first page I will be reading, is the new column by Garance Doré. I'm so delighted that she's doing a column in Vogue Paris! Can't wait!

How do you unwind/relax? I'd love to hear!

Black Jumpsuit

Great black jumpsuit

I recently bought my very first jumpsuit. I was inspired by this picture. I found my jumpsuit at Zara. I think there are many grate options at the moment. Well..... again Zara..... but I'm just really a fan of this store, so many grate affordable outfits. The one thing I love the most about wearing a jumpsuit is, that you can jump in this suit (jumpsuit, haha) and voilà you are ready! By adding different soes and bags you can go for a casual or more chic look, switching from day to night in seconds, I love that.

Zara Lookbook August 2012

August - Woman - Lookbook - ZARAAugust - Woman - Lookbook - ZARAAugust - Woman - Lookbook - ZARAAugust - Woman - Lookbook - ZARAAugust - Woman - Lookbook - ZARA

August is almost over, but I was offline for a while and only saw the lookbook from Zara the other night. It's once again amazing what this highstreet store is able to (re)create. They transform the runway looks from some of my favorite collections in a very intelligent way. There is more to see, these are just my favorites. I will definitely get the sleeveless coat and then wear it as shown in this look or combine it with my leather jacket underneath.
