taking CHANCES.

And one way to do that is to make sure you invest in statement pieces. Like those amazing high-heels from Givenchy, or those beautiful clutches and embroided t-shirts from Nina Ricci. Not to mention the futuristic helmet from Balenciaga, the gorgeous earrings from D&G, or the mini-handbags from Rochas. And these are only the first things that came to my mind. So, you better start taking notes, or makea list like I do, because Spring is close.

Shala Monroque. Fashion consultant. And one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Here are some amazing pictures with her, from JAK & JIL.




There is no argue in that. And what better way to do that, then start mixing the old with the new. Not to mention that we are lucky enough to see the temperature rising a few degrees above zero.

Just a small hint about how colorful this Spring it's going to look like.

Flowers again.

Joan Smalls is by far one of my favorite supermodels. And since we talked about flowers, here is a picture with her wearing this beautiful jacket from Givenchy.

I know it is freezing outside, but these embellished outfits might have a slow-burn effect. They are pretty powerful pieces and each one it's perfect in it's own way.

FIRE away. PRADA Spring/Summer 201 Campaign

Usually,  retro and contemporary work in the same sentence only if you think about Prada. Or Miu Miu. But that is not a surprise : ) And if you don't remember the images from the S/S Collection, here's a reminder.

David Mallett. HAIR SERUM #DM027.

Good things do come in beautiful packages. That's what I said to myself today when I opened the gift that Mr. DAVID MALLETT sent me. Remerber DAVID MALLETT? I wrote about his astonishing salon not to long ago. 
Now let's get back to the astonishing part. : ) I never understood why the germans where so keen to find the Golden Shrine in that Indiana Jones movie. But when I opened my little black bottle that contained the precious Hair Serum #DM027 I figured it all out. Because the perfume coming from inside was absolutely divine...

And the perfume is just only one of the assets of this amazing serum that took 3 years to perfect. 3 years in witch Mr. Mallett's team tested 27 different formulation. Until they've come to this: #DM027. A product fitted for all types of hair (including children's hair), that not only smooths the hair (as most of the serums do) but it is immediately absorbed, to protect it from within.

Now, I do not know if the divine perfume, the macadamia nut oil or the amazing hands of DAVID MALLETT turned this serum into a must have of the high parisian society, but I know that I can't wait to try it!

on My Wishlist.

This is probably one of the most amazing handbags from the S/S 2012 season. And you can purchase it from an amazing new site called FORWARD by elyse walker. I just LOVE  IT ! And their shoes and bags department is to die for.


Bright Lights.

I kept this picture for a while, waiting for the right moment to post it. And even if is pretty cold outside, there is no excuse in not having a good time this weekend. Just make sure to put the accent on the right pieces.

Christy Turlington for Louis Vuitton.


Christy Turlington is still one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. And people from Louis Vuitton  seem to know that, too.
