When Urban Outfitters does Mods.

Hallelujah, I officially found the best suit I've seen in a long time. Usually I prepare myself for a very very nice (NOT) price when it comes to things I like, but this one actually comes from Urban Outfitters aka means it's affordable. I had to check twice. Affordable and perfect. Slightly oversized, high waisted and cropped trousers and a matching boxy jacket, oversized too. After all, whats making this look work and fun is that you look like a little boy in it. Everything I like! Wait for me - I'm gonna come and buy you, wherever you are....you jacket. And pants. I'm starting to talk to clothes, pretty sure sign it's time for me to stop looking at a computer screen. Still gonna hunt this down, yessss.

The Perfect Outfit.

Alexa Chung has, as we all know, some seriously good style; in fact she's one of my favorites when it comes to the way she dresses. Playful, young and with a hint of innocence. Very refreshing considering that most of the well known people on this planet rather undress than dress. When I randomly stumbled over this picture of Alexa I just thought: that is THE perfect outfit. Oversized red and black checkered coat, crisp white buttoned up shirt and a pair of leather trousers with biker details. Since unfortunately I don't have Alexa's incredible DNA I can't quite pull it off like she does, so below is how I would personally wear this look, in my usual, more casual way. I love the slightly cocoon shaped houndstooth Dufflecoat from Coach, my usual dose of Carven by including a leopard printed sweatshirt (since you all know how much I like to mix and match patterns) and some high waisted boyfriend jeans, black distressed please, like these ones from Current/Elliott. Sounds like a good plan until someone talented invents something to make the looongest legs grow on trees. So that I can get a pair like Alexa's. Then we'll talk about the perfect outfit again.

Pop Magazine: Alexa Chung x Louis Vuitton

I stumbled upon those covers today and just had to take a picture of them: I adore Alexa Chung and love Nicolas Ghesquière's work for Louis Vuitton. No need to say that Pop Magazine brought it to the next level by putting this lovely lady on their cover - wearing the F/W15 collection, which is now available in selected Louis Vuitton boutiques - totally excited!

Delicate Diamonds.

I've been looking for simple gold and silver mini hoops for ages now and finally found the perfect selection from Stone Paris. On top of that I wouldn't mind the slightly bigger cross ones either...Hedvig Palm rocked the perfect ear party in a slightly older editorial from British Vogue: if you're not as afraid of piercings as I am and if you love the "barely there" style, make sure you look up J. Colby Smiths' work, piercings surely never looked this elegant. In the meantime I'm going to stay faithful to the simple, good old earrings. These Stone ones please. Thanks.

All black sneakers.

All black and with a touch of 90ies : I think these Neoprene Chanel sneakers are mighty fine.
And as usually with Chanel: mighty difficult to get your hands on as well.

I met these here at www.ebay.com

Puss Puss Magazine

Puss Puss is the kind of magazine I've been waiting for, without being cliché or sharing perfect menues for your kitty, it still focuses on two things I personally love: cats and fashion. Where has this magazine been all my life?! As a total catlady and fashion addict this is the perfect mix. I especially appreciate the gorgeous Anja K. editorial and the numerous pieces by Silken Favours, a talented lady who makes the quirkiest silk items - from shirts to cushions. Discover more new creative minds, beautiful photography and a lot of furry friends by ordering the first kickstarter issue on the website www.pusspussmagazine.com. Totally worth it, especially if you're as devoted to the feline species as I am.

Daria Werbowy by Juergen Teller for Céline FW15 is nothing quite new but these boots are quite spectacular.

A Hint Of Texas.

This season is cowboy season! If you have not crossed the guns and the sheriff stars yet, here are my absolute favorites:

Black and White Cardigan, (also available as a short sweater),  Golden Gun Bangle (available in 3 sizes), simple but yet effective black suede boots and golden revolver earrings for unpierced ears by Saint Laurent Paris.

Sheriff Star ring and shiny leather booties by Chanel. They have approximatively a ton of cowboy inspired items, just in case. No wonder since the theme of the collection was "Paris-Dallas".  Pictured above: Kristen Stewart being awesome in the new Chanel Ad Campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld. 
You can guess the collection.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Campaign

It is a clear departure from the Marc Jacobs Parent Line Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley wanted to illustrate with the Fall 2014 ad campaign - starting by casting their models from Instagram using the hashtag #CastMeMarc. In April thousands answered the call and  Hillier and Bartley narrowed over 70.000 entries to only 30 finalists to keep 9 for the camaign. The result is rebellious, young and urban: Shot by David Sims, the social media models were photographed in colorful hair, energetic poses and and eccentric prints to show the new direction of the brand. "It seemed like a great idea to me, as casting through instragram seemed cool, current, and strong," Jacobs said to WWD. "We wanted the ads to shout with youth and energy...to be fresh and reclaim the spirit that the collection had when we first conceived it - to be another collection, not a second line." 
Personal verdict: Awesomeness overload.
