OOOhhh, I really like you!!
Let's be honest, I couldn't afford this bag in a million years, but I'm still a big admirer of THE ROW handbags. The shapes always classic & chic and so beautifully crafted in the most luxurious exotic skins. The price tags make me flinch but apparently there is a crowd out there that will invest in a gorgeous bag from THE ROW.
Meanwhile I still enjoy looking at them... click here.

[ beautiful BLACK ]

Don't get me wrong, I like colours a lot... comes spring the streets are getting all colourful with lots of pastels & mixing patterns, etc.
I can't help it, I still love a cool black outfit, a gothic touch, a little bit of rock'n'roll, black leather jackets or studded boots.... ;) 
Here some pictures that inspire me right now...

[ my favorite SUEDE booties ]

Really in the mood for suede ankle booties... with an edge of Western.
Here my four favorites:

1. ISABEL MARANT - Jenny Boot 
2. ZADIG AND VOLTAIRE - Midory Western
4. STRATEGIA - Low Pointy Boots

[ sommer loving ]

I really like the styling of the MANGO summer 2012 lookbook with model Magdalena Frackowiak! 
It's young & fresh, cool & laid back, all you want to wear on a hot summer day. I'm having a huge crush on the black booties (2nd and 4th picture)... how great are those!!

[ do the job ]

I love a surprising accessory..... so when I came across the boot buckles from Sass & Bide I was intrigued! 
Wish they would come in silver as well...

[ let's do sport! ]

This summer is all about sporty & comfy outfits.... so this jacket goes right on top of my wish list, love the detachable hood, the slouchy spirit and those striped rib-trim knit details.

[ studs & zips ]

Let's Rock'n'Roll - a pair of black leather boots & an Alexander Wang chain bag... what else does a girl need.
Today I'm absolutely in the mood for studs & zips.... have a great day!

[ NOWHERE is now ]

Absolutely in love with this zipped up cardigan by NOWHERE... perfect to wear as a jacket on a cold & rainy spring day (like today)! 
Really like the idea of a motorcycle-knitwear-jacket with zippers and snaps. And I'm also a huge fan of overlong sleeves.... so this makes it kind of perfect for me!

[ CRYSTAL paradise ]

Tucked away in a discreet brick building in downtown LA is the crystal paradise of Gia Bahm, jewelry designer of UNEARTHEN
Gia's necklaces, bracelets, and rings are not only beautiful but possess certain properties that can provide both physical and mental benefits to its owner. For example, an amethyst stone provides balance, heals sleep deprivation and alcoholism, among other things.
The crystal is the starting point for all her designs: "In my mind, crystals are a great example of an incredibly well-designed object. And they were made by the earth. There is such genius in this natural object, and you can feel there's something very magical about them just by looking at them..... To me, crystals are one part past and one part future, which is a source of endless curiosity.".

[ unique ]

HUSAM EL ODEH is a jeweler which I applaud.
Originally studying painting at Berlin’s Hochschule der Kuenste and planning to become an artist, German born Husam el Odeh instead took the path down to jewellery design. After becoming tired of the fine art world and doing a course in fine metal he debut his first jewellery collection in 2005 whilst still at university and he has collaborated with designers such as Marios Schwab and Acne. 
His raw talent for incorporating shells, crystals, precious stones, pearls, wood and plastics into his designs is what has propelled him into the industry.

...and who can resist a gorgeous fun details like those triple tassels!

[ KATE's festival style ]

Kate Bosworth belongs to one of my all time favourites when it comes to CHOACHELLA festival style!
So jeaulous of her Isabel Marant western shirt... 

[ COACHELLA girls ]

Shorts, mini dresses, boots & something with fringes.... that sounds like COACHELLA to me!
So sad I couldn't be there this year....

[ redpoll boots ]

I know, soon this blog will be all about shoes ;) 
well, hopefully not, but as you can tell, when it comes to shoes I can hardly resist, it's my big passion within the fashion world.
So if you feel the same I want to share with you some new booties.... the REDPOLL BOOTS by RAE JONES.
Rae Jones wants to make sure that her shoes are beautiful & wearable, made with longevity in mind.  
I believe ankle boots are the perfect shoes.... they go with everything - skirts, shorts, skinnies - and always add a cool touch! And you can wear them all year long.
Available at No.6 store (click here)...

[ pretty in SUEDE ]

A new arrival that you will like.... the PROENZA SCHOULDER PS1 wallet in suede! 
It comes in 10 different colours, so it makes it hard to chose but kind of perfect to find YOUR favourite tone. I tend to go for an "easy" colour when it comes to bags, but wallets are fun in a (pop) colour, don't you think?
I like a wallet with not much bulk, so the PS1 is great if you can live with one compartment & one back slit pocket.

[ THREE must-haves ]


This picture captures three of the best accessories ever, don't you think?
Pieces that are turning into classic must haves, they will never go out of fashion.  
Yves Saint Laurent clutch, Hermes leather cuff & Cartier bangle.... so which of the three is your favourite?

[ sandals with buckles ]

ZARA surprises me again & again. 
Tuesday night & I have nothing better to do then browsing the website of ZARA.... and my heart stopped for a second when I saw those sandals! They look amazing.
ZARA tends to be a little overpriced in the US compared to Europe (at least in my opinion), but I have to admit, they have some great pieces in their collection!
So yes, definitely have to hit the stores tomorrow and find those sandals :)
I'll show them as soon as I got them.
