The Playsuit

I'm not such a big fan of the whole jumpsuit hype, but I am totally into playsuits right now. At first, those denim playsuits had caught my eye, but when I ran across this silk playsuit last week I just had to have it. Here are some quick shots... (dressed down on a windy day - hope you don't mind ;-). I hope you can imagine the dress-up-version with headband, highheels and bangles (hippie, hippie, yeah!?!?).

Coffee-table books and magazines

Once in a while I like to distract myself from the online world. Don't get me wrong, fashion blogs are a great source of inspiration, but I'm still fond of books, fashion magazines and my little coffee-table book selection.

The more the better.

What if one bag is not enough to store all your belongings? Easy one. Just take two massive bags. And if you're worried about looking like a pack-mule just look at these pictures of MK Olsen. She can even handle her morning coffee. The message: Actually, there is a stylish way of transporting excess baggage.

This is for the ladies...

...and not for the chicks. Marc Jacobs is celebrating the feminine silhouette of the 50s and 60s in his new collection for Louis Vuitton. Lara Stone (the face of the current ad campaign), Laetitia Casta (on the runway), and suddenly curves are back in style. And please take notice of the new length for skirts. Very ladylike. So I really like the new flow, 'cause honestly, I'm tired of the 80s and 90s (though I won't give up my selection of leggings because they're so comfy).

The next big thing...

...are YSL's oversized necklaces with figures of seventies silhouettes. The perfect accessoire to pimp a simple outfit in an instant. So let's get ready for the religious Ghetto-Rock. I would pair the chain (actually, you can't call that huge thing a necklace) with an LBD (as seen in the show) or with skinny jeans/ jeggings and oversized blazers and boyfriend shirts from American Apparel.

I absolutely adore Missoni - it's the special holiday feeling of the colours and cuts, I guess. So when I came across this headband today, I just had to have it! Especially the new ad campaign with the Missoni family modelling the clothes and accessories engaged my constantly growing sympathie for the brand. Wah, I can't wait to mothball my beanies...

A little Starbucks...

I need my Chai Tea Latte once in a while. It's weird, but I love the cosiness of the Starbucks Coffee houses. It's like heaven on earth. And a little Starbucks always makes me happy...

Frida Giannini is so Phoebe Philo

"That cannot be Gucci" - this was exactly my first thought when looking at Frida Giannini's Fall Collection. Gucci used to be in-your-face luxury, always a little bit over the top. This is why I wasn't that fond of Gucci's last collections. But now it seems Frida got inspired by the pureness of Stella McCartney's looks or Phoebe Philo's collections for Celine - beige, ivory, black, clean cuts, fur - luxurious, but not over the top at all. Yet, Frida keeps the special Guccinesse by lowering the former shout to a gentle whisper. I like!
