How to make a simple studio editorial look this good? I guess you'll have to ask Vogue China. This is such a brilliant and strong editorial with black, red and amazing lengths. Love the mood, want all of the clothes.

Going back to school today reminded me that I need some new boots. The ones I wore the most last fall/winter, were worn into the ground, and had to be tossed. It's silly, but getting rid of a pair of shoes I've worn a lot makes me sad.
These almost-wedges would be more than enough to put a smile back on my face, though...

I think this is the first time I post pictures of (almost all of) myself on this blog. Feels kind of strange. Both pictures are taken today, but my legs look like they belong to two different persons... I choose to see this as a sign that I need a better camera.
While shopping in Barcelona, it seems like I fell hard for this slightly retro looking skirt length. These dresses are incredibly comfortable, and they hide the only part of my body I'm not happy with (thighs). According to all the "trend bibles" I should be wearing tiny little kitten heels with them, but that just won't happen. While the JC clogs aren't new, the Topshop sandals are. And they're probably the most comfortable heels I own.

I think I've found my perfect basic fall boots. These pretty things can be found at Opening Ceremony. I really like the thick heel and the little details, like the metal bits on the black and brown pair.
First thing's first, though. Tomorrow I leave for Barcelona, which means this blog will be quiet for a little while. Can't wait to get on the plane!

This is the Mojito shoe, by designer Julian Hakes. Awesome? I think so, yes.
"When I look at a foot print on sand it is very clear to see that the main force goes to the heel and ball.
With a high heel providing the heel is supported, even by standing on a wooden block the foot naturally ’spans’ the gap naturally, with bones and tendons.
The foot has its own inbuilt strength and support so why duplicate this. You would not have a jumper with rigid arms between elbow and wrist."

My heart is still all jittery after the action this weekend, and blogging is suddenly not that much of a priority. Sure, it was just a fling, but it was a damn great one!

I'm certain everybody and their cats know about the awesome swimsuit/bodysuit company We Are Handsome by now, but I'm posting some of their designs anyway. I really wish I could bring one of these bikinis with me when I leave for Barcelona in less than two weeks. Triangle bikini tops are the best ones for my body shape, and these prints are just perfect. I particularily love the print called The Bahamas, featuring flamingoes.

I found these (rather grainy) pictures I'd saved from Fashion Month back in February, and was instantly in a fall mood. These are from the Cerutti show; a brand I'm not at all familiar with, but I really like what they've got to offer for fall/winter. Great mix of colours and textures, the right amount of soft draping and interesting layering. In theory, we'll have summery weather for at least another month, but I'm certain a little preparation for fall can't hurt.
