Brawlmain?

Remember when I posted something about a t-shirt brand Conflict of Interest? Well , I still haven’t managed to order one ( I am kind of a online shopping skeptic) but their new collection just may have convinced me to. My favorite is the “Brawlmain”, COI’svdiscreet sense of humor is even more present in the new pieces. So the question remains , to order or not? Hmmm… I’ll get back to you on that.

You can get yours here

I really need a small perfect little black leather bag. I like this one from Dylan Kain , the leather looks gorgeous and I am starting to love gold chains. Black and gold is the best color combination don’t you think? I really would not mind Rodriguez.

You can get one here and check out the other bags too , it’s hard to pick just one.

No leg tan , no problem

Resort 2013 was somehow more intresting to me than pre-fall . Something about thinking of what I will be wearing next winter turns me completly off , especially in these below zero temperatures. As you know , I am a great advocate for casual no-fuss clothing for the spring. Loose silky pants are possibly my favorite thing to wear in the summer , since I can never seem to find shorts that don’t make me look like an akward hipster. I will definitely need to fix that this summer but for niw the obvious solution is silky pants. These looks from Céline , Margiela and Stella McCartney keep my hot weather motto alive: no leg-tan , no problem.

With her porcelain complexion and striking stare are on of the reasons that Rooney Mara is my favorite actress. The way she morphed entirely into the skin of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo’s Lisbeth Salader last year left me in awe , leading me to reading all three books. This is her second time covering Vogue and yet again the photographs are painstakingly beautiful. She has the elegance of old Hollywood toughened by her modernity and edge.Hope she inspire’s you as much as she does me.

WeeklyWang: sandals

20130125-225629.jpg

Eventhough it’s literally -30 outside , I am thinking about summer already. I just can’t wait to walk around my favorite spots in the city without wearing as much layers as an onion. These sandals from Alexander Wang are exactly what I want to be wearing whilst walking around aimlessly in said city. Summer for me can be summed up in one word : casual.

Lang vs. Wang?

Forgive me for saying this but, I was not impressed with Wang’s Pre-Fall collection. Maybe he was just a little distracted from his new gig at Balenciaga (are you as exited as I am?). I just though it was bleak , something we had seen before . But Helmut Lang on the other hand was one of my favorite Pre-Fall collections. The tailoring is relaxed but polished , not stuffy. The fabrics are black/grey/white , my favorite color scheme and the fading keeps it from looking bleak.My favorite piece is probably the dress with a grey-black dégradé and beautiful draping. I have always thought that back-baring dresses are the epitome of elegance , showing just the necessary amount of skin. Eventhough Wang’s pre-fall was weak , I am sure he has created marvels for the up coming seasons at Alexander Wang and Balenciaga.
