There is no doubt in the fact that Moda Operandi has an eye for fashion and knows everything about the essence of luxury. That is why I always keep an eye on them. And one of my latest finds happened to be an amazing high-impact necklace from VENNA .

OVER THE MOON AND BACK

pics: fashionandfittness.tumblr

A few years ago I asked a friend of mine where I can read the perfect horoscope. Have you heard of
Susan Miller she asked me? She is the go-to astrologer. She collaborates with brands,
counts designers, stylists and editors... More than that, millions of people visit her free
website every month. And so did I from that moment on.
When I first saw this image, her Astrology Zone came to my mind. As a convinced and actualy quite fanatic reader of her monthly accurate horoscope, I am telling you: this lady goes over the moon and back to deliver you the ultimate place to stop and find out what's heading towards you, in the proximate future.

HARD CORE/HARD WEAR LANVIN

  Dedale silver-tone crystal necklace

Exclusive and powerful jewelry are not something new for Lanvin. We kind of got used to them along the years. But that new start that Alber was talking about a while ago fortunately reflects itself  in the accessory line as well. That means even more stones, metal and leather for us.

TRENDING NOW: EXTRA FOLDING

Since Céline accustumed us with the fact that people who work there now a thing or two about writing the rules in fashion, folding bags for this S/S came as a natural thing to do (let's pretend the furry shoes don't even exist). Still I can't wait discover and see more of the Céline woman who's going to dazzle us for Fall/Winter 2013-2014.

My love affair for gold did not started to long ago. I used to hate gold. Even run away from it. I used to consider it a sort of "fashion disease". But a certain ring from Van Cleef and Arpels completely changed my point of view. Now, I am all into it. I got infested with the disease.

I SEE THRU YOU

Layering organza for a see thru effect and matching it with very masculine pants for a couture touch, it's a path a lot of designers choose to walk on this Spring. This sheer sleekness combined with a boys attitude it' s a stunner. And the clean minimalist lines used are just the perfect way of bringing that sexy back dinamic without making an effort.
