The weather is grey, grey, grey in Germany, so I am surviving on my memories of my holiday in Marrakech, the warmth and beautiful colours of that city. Oh, and try making a thé à la menthe in the Moroccan way - it's soo good.

New Mulberry Leo Bags

Leopard prints seem to be everywhere this season (even on some pieces that should definitely not have it - trenchcoats?), and as always when a thing is omnipresent it's running the risk of getting boring, I think. Which is why I find Mulberry's slightly new takes on the leo print very refreshing. Take these bags, for instance: the Lily (via Net-a-Porter), patent Alexa (via My Wardrobe), and Bayswater Pouch (via Mulberry) still make me want to spend my money.

Paper Sculptures

I discovered Anna-Wili Highfield's art via the design blog "Creature Comforts". Have you heard of her? She lives in Sydney and creates these amazing sculptures out of painted cotton paper which she sews together. (She also makes horses but as you know I love birds, so I'm showing you these examples). I am so impressed I don't know what else to say but - Wow!

Glam Heels

Not long till the season of partys, balls, fancy dinners etc. etc. A good reason to buy new glam heels (those kind of shoes that you can wear when you take a taxi from your home to a fancy place, stand or sit there for a while, and then take a taxi back). I put together a selection of glamourous shoes that got me excited. Clockwise: Topshop chiffon bow sandals, Asos party peeptoes, Topshop glitter shoes, Buffalo sandals, Head over Heels Pumps (via Asos), and Buffalo blue suede sandals. I think the last ones are my favourites.

Purse Search

Who would have thought that it's so difficult to find a nice (zip) purse? I feel like I have searched the entire internet and the above two are actually the only purses I liked – top: Yves Saint Laurent, bottom: Anya Hindmarch. Both are not exactly in the price range I was thinking of. Does anyone know where to find pretty purses?

Dots and Stripes

Here's what I wore yesterday: my usual Breton shirt from Petit Bateau, skirt from American Apparel, big cardigan from American Vintage (soo warm and cosy – my new favourite for this winter), dotted tights from Zara, shoes from Cox, necklace from H&M.

Duffle Coat

It's been quite a while since my last post - I was busy with my dissertation and then I urgently needed a break. But now I'm back online. In the meantime it has become pretty cold and wet in Germany. I bought myself a new coat: a navy duffle coat from Topshop. And here's what I'd like to wear with it: boots from Buffalo, hat from Topshop (isn't it sweet?), denim shirt (this one is from J. Crew), sweater (this one is Vince), bag from Anya Hindmarch, bird ring from Solange Azagury-Partridge (via Net-a-Porter).
