Vogue UK 1997
I've been finding a lot of inspiration lately from the minimal 90s editorials.
There is something so classic + timeless about them.
With Versace still in the shops, H&M has already announced their next collaboration with Marni. On March 8th 2012, a Marni at H&M collection is released worldwide! The spring collection will have women and menswear clothes as well as accessories. I think it will be great as I love Marni, always playful and elegant. Can't wait!

Last week, I was invited to HARRY WINSTON on 5th Avenue for lunch and to check out their iconic engagement ring collection. The moment I stepped through the door I was in diamond heaven! I was given the opportunity to create my dream engagement ring with Harry Winston designers. My dream design would then be sketched for me to take home. I got to see every diamond cut and setting imaginable. I mean, I just about died slipping these rings on my finger! Seriously, the most sparkling beauties I have ever seen! The design I fell in love with was a classic three-carat, round brilliant diamond solitaire ring ♥
We then headed to Harry Winston's old private office (via his tiny personal elevator!), where we were greeted with a delicious elderflower cocktail- one of the best I've ever had! Over cocktails, I got to watch the beautiful video I exclusively posted for you above, showing the design making process of these engagement rings from beginning to end. Ring making is truly an art!
Over the three course lunch we chatted about the diamonds and got to hear some great stories about Harry Winston's history, their charity involvement, and hear about some amazing celebrity and royal encounters. Before leaving, I was presented with my personalized engagement ring sketch- a perfect souvenir that I will make sure to show my boyfriend every chance I get! ;)
Overall, I truly appreciated the personalized experience and getting to learn more about the history and art behind these creations. I want to send out a huge thank you to the Harry Winston team for one of the dreamiest afternoons I've ever had!
Head on over to HARRY WINSTON to check out all of their engagement rings.
I dare you not to fall in love with one!

I love brogues lately because they are chic and comfortable at the same time. I prefer wearing heels, especially platforms, but sometimes my feet need their welldeserved break and why not in a fancy pair of brogues from the H&M trend collection? Already one of my favorite pairs of shoes.
Btw, I am stuck in bed feeling sick, I think I got the flu or something. Aargh, I hate it.. I hope it will pass soon.

I was so lucky to get the satin skirt, biker jacket and ring from the Versace for H&M collection, which are my favourites of the collection. The quality of the items is very good and I love the jacket and skirt because they have the complete Versace staple on it; leather and satin filled with studs. The bag is from ASOS, the nailpolish is Chanel Péridot and the wedges are from Ebay.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Seeing BULLETT MAGAZINE's lingerie mood board got me thinking about pretty lil nothings.
There is something fun + satisfying to me, knowing i have something cute on under my look ;)
And of course it's always fun to incorporate a sexy piece to your main look as well!
Here are some of my favorites...
• Marlies Dekkers Dame de Paris Balcony Bra
• Only Hearts Caroline Chemise
• Joie Fanny Lace Top
• Calvin Klein Underwear Envy Lace Triangle Bra
• Commando Polka Dot Tights
• Kiki De Montparnasse Cage Bra
• Falke High Heel Tights
Ok, ok alright I must admit that they are quite something, but call me grazy but I think I am in love with these Lion Paw "Alex" Louboutins that Blake Lively wore on set of Gossip Girl. Four hairy toes and crystal embellished heels, yes please!!
