Arghhh...

I've been hesitating for at least one season to buy the classic brown Louis Vuitton Leopard Print Scarf. But as it's always in stock, it's not so interesting since everybody, who can afford a 470 €-scarf, can get it straight away. However, there's a waiting list for the new limited colours making them more interesting... But I have no idea which colour I would choose. Anyway, I still have to wait since I'm not considered a "top client", although I own 5 Louis-Bags and have bought several presents :-( - shame on LV. Morally it would be correct to step away from spending money at LV Stores and not support Pinault's exclusive lifestyle ;-). But this would also mean no shopping at Céline, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Pucci. Being a fashionista my conclusion is simple and plain: I definitely need this scarf - in one of the limited colours! Shame on me ;-)

Wang Bang!!!

According to Sabine Nedelchev (ELLE Germany), the times of the "it-bags" are over. I say: There's still THE bag of the season. This season it's the coco studded leather bag from Alexander Wang. I love the texture of the leather and especially the base. This is the kind of bag you love to hug when passing by in a store. And in addition to that (women always HAVE to explain their investments these days) you can't go wrong with any black accessoires, can you?! So this will be THE bag for fall/winter, but I predict that you’ll hear the following next summer: "You're so lucky you got this fabulous bag last season. It was sold out everywhere!"

The best part of the bag is the studded base.

Cover up

The new season is so "last season reloaded": Balmain-Shoulders, 80s, edgy LBD etc. At least I won't need to buy any trendy basics since they're already hanging in my closet.
Last winter I was searching for the perfect overknees - black, flat, elegant! It was hard to find some, but I ended up paying reasonable 259 € for this pair:


This season, overknees are walking down the runways of Celine, Chloé, Gucci... There's the hookerlike hardcore version, which only works by adding a hint of conservativeness to the rest of the outfit (seen at Gucci), there's the flat everyday version and the timeless classic yet unspectacular mid-heel version.

Giuseppe Zanotti 760 €

Celine 1.136 €

And finally there's the Chloé-Version...and this is exactly why I need a second pair!

Chloé 895 €
