90s L.A. Bombshell

There's nothing like sipping hot chocolate, flipping through fashion magazines and finding the perfect editorial in the cold of autumn. Some editorials make you dream and others make you start an entirely new list of wardrobe must-haves {think gorgeous haute couture gowns in a stunning flower garden reminiscent of Dior}. 
But this one featuring the beautiful Iselin Steiro makes me every girl want to be her : a bona fide 90s bombshell with her luscious, blonde coiffure, alluring timeless gaze and mile-long legs; living a leisurely lifestyle in the glamorous L.A. -- fabulous soirées on breezy nights, lounging around in her Californian home and being an It Girl about the city in nothing less than statement pieces {especially all the fur coats} from Gucci, Hermès, Lanvin, DSQUARED², Prada, Marc Jacobs and Chloé. And can you believe that this was inspired by Lynn Bracken in the film L.A. Confidential? Film + fashion + holiday inspiration, all thanks to the glossy pages of Vogue Paris.

VSFS 2013 | Runway

EVERYONE'S FAVOURITE SHOW or what?! It has been a week since the most glamorous fashion show on the planet, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013 was staged in New York, and I've been dreaming about it ever since. From the glittery catwalk and the glamorous atmosphere, to the world-famous Angels and models clad in impossibly breathtaking outfits, to the bright lights and sparkles worthy of the red, or should I say pink-carpet, the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has long been one of the most coveted fashion events of the year, not to mention being an endless source of inspiration and dreams for girls all around the world {like yours truly}. Switching from their pink satin robes to gorgeous million-dollar lingerie, the supermodels this year were featured in segments more fabulous than ever such as Parisian Nights, Shipwrecked, British Invasion, Birds of Paradise, Snow Angels and PINK Network wearing shimmery six-inch Nicholas Kirkwoods to . Here are some of my favourite atmosphere shots of the VSFS 2013, get ready for a major glitter fest.

Marant + H&M

The queen of luxe bohemian meets minimalistic Parisian chic, Isabel Marant has always been the designer that everyone wanted to have a piece of but could not. {The prices, yes I feel you. It's always the prices isn't it?} Watching It-girls around the world donning Marant on the streets in utter envy is now over with the arrival of the most covetable collaboration/collection of the year, Isabel Marant for H&M. H&M collaborations have always given those who can't afford designer pieces {like a lot of us} a glimpse of what it is like to own one at just a high-street price, and that's why when they announced that they were teaming up with Isabel {who happens to be one of my favourite designers}, I was so excited! I mean, who wouldn't be?

journées d'hiver l'automne.

.....time flies and it's already the second last month of the year. Christmas décor is everywhere right now, and since the holidays have started for me, it's the perfect time to dream about winter days....days perfect for breakfast in bed, nights snuggling up in between cosy quilt covers with a cup of hot chocolate, reading your favourite tome (or Vogue), dreaming about faux or not, fur stoles and gorgeous winter couture, switching light summer wear for more voluminous velvet coats and leather boots, and watching films by the warm living room....and here's a little inspiration for those wonderful autumn days and the winter ones to come...
