DESIGUAL: It’s in the Bag!

by Emma Dibaja on October 14, 2012

Desigual, a brand, which I disliked for years, has now totally surprised me with their latest bag collection. I’m absolutely in love with a majority of their bags and would be more than happy to be the proud new owner of one of these cool totes.

It’s so hard to decide which one I’d go for. They’re all so pretty.  Some of the smaller bags are super cute while the bigger ones are simply cool. It’s a hard call.  Which one would you go for? :)

Jenni Kayne, Anyone?

by Emma Dibaja on August 26, 2012

I’ve found a designer whose shoes I just love. Once upon a time I really liked wearing heals, but now times have changed and I’m seeing the joy of wearing flats. When there are so many beautiful flats to choose from, why on earth would I want to force my feet into heals? I just wish I had more feet. ;)

Check out more Jenni Kayne shoes on her website, www.jennikayne.com. I’m very tempted to get me a pair.

Polka Dots and Leopard Print: Do they match?

I had a debate conversation with a friend of mine yesterday about the workability of polka dots with leopard print. My friend argued that they do match while I stuck to my opinion that these two patterns just don’t go together unless you’ve done it with care and precision. Anyone who has followed my blog might [...]

One of my new favorites is Armand Ventilo, a Ready-to-Wear high-end French brand started by two brothers Jacques and Armand in 1972. Now the brand has over 50 [...]

The French fashion house of Louis Vuitton has been doing a bit revamping lately and they’ve come up with a lovely ivory and beige bag. Perfect seasonal replacement for the classic, winter brown-check bag that Louis Vuitton is known for. This design looks so much fresher. Perfect for the summer. 3

MONKI: Ethically Correct Style From Sweden

“North East from the Rosehip Stream, in the dazzling City of Iron and Oil the Monki breeds from the old chemicals, forgotten in the ruins on the old weaving factories. The sail from the chimneys, through the knitted clouds over the wavy sea to graze shells and become wise.” — Monki. 1

They’re wacky and cool, and maybe slightly a bit too much, but that’s probably why they’re so great. 2

I’m really liking one this seasons’ hottest trends, the pleated skirt. They first caught my attention in 2010 when I saw the Spring 2011 runways, which were filled with pleated skirts. And ever since I’ve been seeing them everywhere. 5

You’d think that it’s easy to look stylish when you have the luxury to choose designer over high street. But even with designer brands at your disposal I feel compelled to ask: Can money buy style? 2

Massimo Dutti Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Collection: When Style Matters!

Thumbnail image for Massimo Dutti Fall/Winter 2010/2011 Collection: When Style Matters!

As I’ve mentioned on previous occasions, I’m a real fan of Massimo Dutti. Not only because it’s a slightly better and better-quality high-street brand, but also because I find their collections really stylish. Both the men’s and women’s collections always show a certain elegance and sophistication which is not that visible in today’s “disposable fashion”, [...]
