Vintage Chanel

Vintage Chanel

Chanel Nr °5, Chanel limited edition lipstick "La Précieuse", Vintage Chanel Drawstring bag, Vintage Chanel Bracelet, Linda Farrow Square-frame acetate and watersnake Sunglasses, Cashmere Beanie, Cashmere Blend Turtleneck from Dear Cashmere, Goldsign for J Crew jeans, 
Acne Studios Vita Leather Ankle Boots

The other day I got a sample of Chanel Nr°5 and I immediately sprayed some of it on to my wrist. This smell will for ever remind me of my grandmother! She passed away more than 10 years ago, but I still get watery eyes when I think about her. She was such an amazing woman! She was born in 1912 and grew up in the Swiss mountains, in a little village.... but she still went to law school and became a lawyer and she had four kids.... how amazing is that..... and this all before and during World war two!

I just had to do an outfit collage around that scent and I guess, if my grandmother would still be alive and if she'd be about my age, she would wear that outfit and just look amazing in it!

Happy weekend everyone!

Grey and beige

First Snow

Derek Lam Camel Bouclé Cape, Acne rue mohair pullover (similar here), Current Elliot "the fling" jeans, Reed Krakoff Atlantique Tote, Pajar Iceland Snow Boots, Acne Stream kid chunky knit mohair beanie, Givenchy Palladium Small Medaillon Bracelet, Celine Sunglasses (similar here), Chanel Frenzy nailcolor, Chanel lipstick

We had our first snow last week and at the moment I'm crazy about the color combination "Beige and Grey".

Grey and beige are somehow so "cozy" colors and when it gets cold, they help keeping me warm. I know it doesn't really work when you look at it from a physiological side, but we humans are not only "physiological beings", are we?

What colors help you keeping warm?

Dries Van Noten Buys

The ones who follow my blog (a very little, but very fine crowd) know, that I'm a big fan of Dries Van Noten, such a big fan actually, that if anybody would ask me to pick my favorite designer, I would pick Dries. 

So when I found these crock embossed brogues on Vestiare collective, never worn, in my size!!! I simply had to get them! They fit perfectly and the quality of those shoes.... wow, a dream! I wear them, when ever I can! 

And the scarf is an other present I made myself. I love the striped detail and I really dare say, this scarf will live for ever, it's warm and such good quality, a pleasure!

I love the masculine touch these accessories give to any of my outfits! I'm quite small and blond, so anything masculine is very welcome, cause I'm really far from being the barbie type blonde, style vise I mean. 

Do you like to add masculine touches to your outfits? And who is your favorite designer? I'd love to hear!

Chloé Coat

Chloé Coat

Chloé Wool-twill Coat (on 70% sale), J.Crew Eaton cropped stretch wool pants, Iris and Ink Cashmere knit, Dries Van Noten Ankle boots, Givenchy Small Medaillon Bracelet, Illesteva Leonard Sunglasses, Reed Krakoff Double top handle Satchel, Dries Van Noten par Frederic Malle, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet

I ordered this dream coat from Chloé a while ago over the outnet and when it arrived I knew, that this is a coat I will love all my life! The material is a dream and the cut so feminine, so perfect!

I'm in a quite classic mood lately and so I wear a lot of black and camel and I must say, that I really love the Iris and Ink line from the outnet!

And.... have you seen that new medaillon bracelet from Givenchy? Oh I'm a bit obsessed with that and I might make myself a early Christmas present! They come in differen materials, gold and silver tone and in two sizes. The big medaillon is really big, too big for me, but if you are a bit taller than me it might work perfectly.

I'm a Reed Krakoff fan since a long time and I must say, that this new bag shape is one of my favorites! At the Spring 2014 shows we could see some white ones and black and white ones..... my new dream bag!

And this is for the boys.... don't know if any male readers are tuning in, but if yes.... the Dries Van Noten scent from Frederic Malle might be a perfect Christmas present ;-)
