Sneak peek: my new home

The light is, sadly, not the best for taking photos in November. But I still wanted to give you a little peek into the apartment I moved into last month. It's not finished yet (we're still missing a rug for the living room, several lamps, some pieces for the hallway, a large dining table, ...) but we're slowly getting there. Maybe I can show you more photos soon.

Wild in the streets

I am so happy that my new Boy goes perfectly well with the current punk trend (and my everlasting – no matter what the trend is – love for leather jackets, leather skirts, leather trousers, ... boots, studs and check)! So here's an outfit which is quite similar to what I am wearing almost every day at the moment: leather skirt by Alexander Wang (or a similar cool version at Zara), boots by Saint Laurent (as I said, I'm into boots at the moment), chunky sweater by Marc by Marc Jacobs, checked shirt by A.P.C., checked scarf by Zara, studded bracelets by Valentino and Saint Laurent, hat by Dear Cashmere, black nail polish by Essie, ear cuff by Catbird (I'd feel naked without mine at the moment).

I have a Pinterest board dedicated to tattoos I like. I mainly pin and admire the small simple ones of Kate Moss, Erin Wasson, Daria Werbowy, Freja Beha and the likes – and have been doing so for what feels like ever. The fact that I never tire of seeing these kind of tattoos, even though they're so immensely popular, somewhat astonishes me. Maybe the only reason why I haven't gotten one myself yet is my inability to decide which design I like best.

Le Boy

Something very exciting happened this week. After admiring the Chanel Boy bag for months, I suddenly found out that the model I had had my eyes on was available again! So I decided to go for it. (I was so excited, I even made an "unboxing video" on Instagram). You can see my new Boy above. ... I'm very much in love!

The cosy cardigan

Here's the newest gem from my mother's manufactory: a very warm and cosy cardigan made of different types of luxurious wool (from thick and warm to fluffy to very fluffy).  :)
On Saturday I wore it with my Olive T-Shirt, J Brand leather trousers and my new Hermès Médor bracelet. ... Please excuse the bad photo quality – my Olympus Pen camera couldn't handle the bad November light (does anybody else have these problems with that camera?)

Major wardrobe envy

Sure I love The Coveteur and Co. – it's always nice to peek into other people's homes and closets. But when I saw the feature about Dyveke Angelo, who's buyer and web store manager at Strom, I went a little bit crazy. My dream bag (Louis Vuitton x Sofia Coppola), Chanel, Iro, a classic Balenciaga biker jacket, ... – nothing but pieces that make my heart race. See it here.

New wardrobe staple: The Caban jacket

I've already posted it on Instagram: my Caban jacket by Mat de Misaine which I bought in a sailing store last month (similar here and here). I got the men's version because I found it more classic – and I really don't regret it. It's so warm and versatile. I also love the navy blue colour. Last Sunday I wore it with a handmade Angora sweater, a cashmere scarf from Scotland, Topshop jeans, my trusted Acne Donna boots and Mulberry bag.

Hermès Médor

As much as I love delicate jewellery, I also have a thing for silver studs. (I wear my 1988 stud earrings every day and I still regret not keeping my studded belt from teenage days). My favourite luxury version of studded jewellery, the Hermès "Collier de chien" bracelet, turns my eyes into little hearts every time I see it. Unfortunately, it's very pricy and there are always long waiting lists for it. ... You can't imagine (or maybe you can?) how happy I was when, one day, I saw the "Médor Twilly studs" online. They are designed to be worn with a Twilly silk scarf, but you can also wear them as a bracelet. The silver ones were sold out in Germany but a friend was so nice to get them for me in London. (Thank you!!!). You can see them worn as a bracelet here

Update thanks to Instagram

I'm sorry it has been quiet in this blog lately, but as I had mentioned I moved to another place, so my time has been taken up by that (and by work). Luckily, there's Instagram! So I can still share some moments from the last couple of days with you: I discovered an amazing interior shop; I took my Chanel bag out on a date; after all the packing, unpacking and moving I finally found the time to sit down with "Styleby" magazine and enjoy the weekend; I tried on an old hat, which will get an outing again soon; I received a little orange box (more about it soon); and I found love in a coffee cup ...
