Lumi love

For awhile now, I’ve been looking for an elegant bag with an attitude, that would be compact yet have room for my wallet, phone, SLR camera, umbrella and some beauty products; All the essential that a girl and a style blogger needs on a daily basis. Fortunately, a few weeks ago THE perfect bag magically came to me in our summer party, as I found this divine leather and canvas mix Lumi Twist Supermarket Bag in my goodie bag. It’s literally like a match made in heaven: The bag has a touch of Avant Garde (a fashion movement close to my heart), the perfect blend of feminine and masculine (just the way I like it), and easy to wear from day to night (increases it’s life span and wearability).

The bag comes extremely handy when I travel to Paris in a few weeks, and it  certainly won’t fade out into the stylish crowd of the fashion week – quite the contrary!

Zippers and Lilies

Being sick is no fun but at least I got something exciting to keep me thinking about the better days that lie ahead: A new couple called Ann Demeulemeester and Rick Owens has just moved into my wardrobe, and aren’t they a fancy one? It’s definitely a love story of opposites attracting, one being dreamy soft and the other hard as steel. Together they will compliment my spring looks, as soon as I’ve defeated this darn flu and got back on my feet (and high heels) again.

Nailed it!

I might have created a slight obsession with rings… I’m saying slight because I don’t want to admit myself that purchasing two rings within a month, might have gone a bit out of hand. But when an opportunity like this comes by, you have to act fast. With the help of the handsome half of our household, I got this custom made silver nail ring in the post about a week ago and it hasn’t left my right index finger since. It’s raw yet simple look appeals to me, definitely love at first sight. Mixed with the rest of my ring crew, this one is a perfect match.

Rings around the world

Today my silver ring collection grew by one new member: I spotted this amazing bone armor ring with a claw on the fabulous 5 inch and up blog, and instantly decided it just had to be mine. Sandra was kind to hint that eBay had a similar ring up for auction and with some luck, I happened to be the highest bidder. Now I can’t wait to take this baby for a test drive with my future outfits!

P.S. For those who are interested, Sandra also told me that these bone rings are sold in Camden town, London, so if you happen to be in the neighborhood, get yours there. On the market they go for about £50 since the ring is made of real silver.

PPS. The leather underneath my hand is also one of my recent purchases but I shall reveal its form to you later…

Enjoy your Friday, folks!
