Zara - Cape

Okay, so I didn't freeze to death the past few days. I just lack patience in general to be ordering online and waiting around for my package to arrive. (The box came all the way from Madrid, btw.)

So given that impatience, I just had to wear my brand new cape already the next day. And I must admit, I'm already addicted to this warm and comfy woolen piece, 'cause I barely took it off yesterday. But, to avoid looking like some huge batman-fan, I decided for myself that a few rules apply when wearing the cape -probably for me to break in a few weeks time:
- Under no circumstances should this cape be worn without heels.
- Preferably, wear with tights or a legging in stead of a pair of jeans.
- Find yourself a nice black woolen sweater to wear underneath 'cause putting on two jackets in mid-fall is a little too much...

By the way, did I mention I'm crazy for anything with a cape?

Worn with my black short Burberry-trench, my Louis Vuitton-scarf, a Zara-legging, Ash-booties and my caviar 2.55-purse. 

NB: Seeing these pictures taken at an apple plantation, for some reason the Givenchy-ad pops to mind.

When using skin products, it is truely important to use the right treatments for your skin. You can buy the best products in quality -or price- but if the make-up or the skincare products don't match your skin, it won't be worth a thing.

City Trip - Paris

I need your advice. I've only been to Paris once: it was for school, the Tour Eiffel Concours de Francais. We slept in a Formula 1-hotel and it stormed for two whole days... No need to explain that I don't have the best idea of the city.

So please, can anyone give me some tips on where to shop, where to eat and what to do (on bank holidays)?

I know I'm gonna love Rue Cambon though

Happy Birthday, Sister!

My dear sister, I really can not believe that you're already 21 years old! I still can't help calling you my 'little sister' ... A big happy happy happy birthday! I wish you all the best and I love you... Have a great day, and we'll party together tonight!

Jewelry Box

In a few days it will be my sister's 21st birthday! As she is a fan of Cointreaupolitans, I'm thinking this jewelry box designed by Dita Von Teese for the French liquor brand would make a great gift. And Dita looks amazing in these campaign images.

PS.: Don't forget to enter the Shark Attack-give away. My sister is giving away a Roberto Cavalli-ring and the contest will end on her birthday this friday. Good luck!

Shirts vs. Dresses

All my warm, fall long-sleeved dresses were in the laundry, so I decided to make a comfy dress out of my dad's old Armani-shirt. Because the shirt would drown me if I paired it up with just a belt, I had to take in the shoulders and the back. But since I didn't cut into the fabric, I can easily restore it back into a shirt, before my father even knows it's missing...

Paired up with Ash-booties, H&M-legging, old brand-less belt and a Chanel-necklace
