Sparkly shine


Okeeeeyy... you need to see these! I already had a few fooled but I am happy to tell you that these sparkly things are not miu miu... but from river island! designed by the lovely sammy goff.. some may remember me talking about an internship that I got the chance to do, so... it was over at the river island shoe design department! It was so exciting and I enjoyed every second of it! I saw these a while back in the office and now I can finally let you know that they are available in stores...

Thank to every one over at river island... x

ps. sorry for not posting so much lately.. Uni is sucking the life out of me right now... got to love it though.

NEXT preview


Thank you to the lovely people over at Next for inviting me to your AW showroom! Is it just me or are they're design getting more and more exciting....? The upcoming collection had influences from D&G, Chloe, Burberry... and many more. I love it. My favorite, that I almost walked away in, was the clog boots!! they will be mine as soon as the collection launch in just a few months! also loved the aviator jackets and the sleek tops and dresses in leather..

Looks like the summer is finally here.. and I am soaking in every tropical second of it. Pics taken over the weekend, in hyde park.. who knew an over crowded, bird filled field in the middle of busy London could actually pass for an exotic beach when you close your eyes and forget about reality for a while...

in more important news... the winner of the marc jacobs ring is Sabrina yeeyy congrats!! thank you to everyone who took part! your comments and ideas have been lovely to read! I assure you there will be more giveaways coming up soon..

Printed


river island jumpsuit
h&m belt
miu miu platforms

pictures by Tasha

The hunt for miu miu inspired pieces continues.. I have to say that I am a bit surprised that there aren't too many out there.. yet(?) But my new jumpsuit.. not really miu miu but maybe a little? the kind of thing you could easily wear around the clock..

and sorry.. I know I have been wearing the miu miu's non-stop.. I'll take a tiny break from them..

Worth the wait


My new YSL ring.. you might have seen it around already and it's not that I woke up late... it's more like I denied the fact that I actually needed it in my life.. until now.
