The fishnet part deux

Yesterday, we had a look at how some of our favourite fashion girls wear the Isabel Marant fishnet tank…

As for me, I defenitely prefer it in black and that is how I would style it…for day:


1. Splendid simple black tanktop

2. Zadig & Voltaire shorts in turquoise

3. Metallic Repetto flats

4. Isabel Marant charm necklace via Net-a-porter

5. Balenciaga Giant Envelope clutch via MyTheresa

6. the one and only styleproduct aka. Bumble&Bumble surfspray ;)

…and at night:


1. T by Alexander Wang stretch skirt in taupe via Net-a-porter

2. Helmut Lang blazer – a true classic – via LaGarconne

3. Miu Miu lace-up ankle boots

4. Alexander Wang Marion Suede shoulder bag

5. YSL ring in black, ivory and amber …we just can’t get enough of the arty rings;)

6. Nars body glow

Now, that I think about it, I REALLY need this fishnet top!!! Too bad it is already sold out online…but I might be lucky and find it during Sales in Paris;)

Keep you posted on that, xx

A dash of pink

pink cravings

I love pink. And so does Nat. We always have actually. Since we’re grown-up princesses now, the dose of pink added to our outfits decreased significantly, but it still has the same effect. PINK is like wardrobe ecstasy. Just wanna go on a trip right now:-).

Look: Zara S/S 2011

Wallet: YSL Muse

Bag: Jil Sander

Silk blouse: Equipment

Pink denim shorts: Pacsun

Sunnies: Rayban Wayfarer

Sandals: Balenciaga

Nail lacquer: Chanel Black Satin

September essentials

September wishlist

It’s September! THE most important fashion month has kicked off and I like to think that after a rather unspectacular summer there is a golden fall waiting for me:-). To be all set for that particular case I have put together a list of things that I just NEED (apart from the red Chanel 2.55 which proves to be a difficult mission…). Be inspired!

YSL Tribute 105 – Should I?

YSL Tribute 105 suede pumps cognac

I’ve been flirting with these babies for the past couple of days. They are the new YSL Tribute 105 pumps in a beautiful cognac suede (sooo my color!).

Now the question is should I go for them despite their delicate material and the slightly uncomfortable KILLER heel? Or should I wait and see what kind of shape (pointy – that’s for sure!) the new season will bring and which other tempations will come my way in F/W 2010? Let me know what you thing, fellow shoe lovers;-)!

I found you!


I finally found the YSL arty ring, which I have been craving for soooo long! 

After being sold out forever, it miraculously resurfaced in Paris…in my favourite colour and in my size!!! So although it is technically last season (ok with YSL, there can never really be a “last season”), I had to get it immediately. This is gonna be my very favourite summer accessory, next to this oh-so Parisian Vintage scarf, I got a Kiliwatch this weekend.

YSL retrospective


Last week the first retrospective ever on the whole work of YSL opened in Paris. The exhibit is presented by the Pierre Berge – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation and le Petit Palais in Paris. It comprises over 300 creations and is a true hommage to the master of fashion. A MUST SEE for all fashionistas!

So, if you come to Paris before the end of August make sure you don’t miss it! As for me, its already on my agenda for next week!

Have a great weekend everyone,

love from Paris, Nati

Manifesto hunt part deux

All the fashionable Paris crowd gathered yesterday in front of Colette, to snap one of the highly coveted, strawberry-print YSL bags plus manifesto. It was a real fight and they were out in no time…

Among all the fashionistas lining up on Rue St. Honore, these two young ladies were definitely the coolest:


These two mini-fashionistas were totally into fashion brands and had already gotten the YSL manifesto last season (!)…too cute. So I could not resist taking a pic with them.


After the stressful hunt, I just had to take my bag out for a little walk in the sunny Tuileries garden…



Manifesto hunt

In a bit, I’m gonna start my hunt for the YSL Manifesto here in Paris (its the perfect sunny weather for it!!). I’m gonna strategically position myself at the distribution location near Colette, to do lots of stylish people watching! So stay tuned!

You can find all the distribution locations here.

Just have to finish off with the Manifesto video, its too good (and Natalia too hot)!!

The Eco Shopper

For years we had been carrying the heavy weight of those overpriced, overly decorated IT-bags and it seems as if the phenomenon just had a revival with the much-anticipated Alexander-Wang Mini Duffle bag that sold out in no time. For those of you who want to take it easy this fall here’s an eco-friendly (and comparably cheap!) alternative: the canvas shopper. We picked out these three beautys:

Summer Styles Part 2

my summer style-2

Voilà, some of my favourite summer looks! As with Carola, my colour palette is rather neutral with lots of black, white and grey…spiced up with some pops of gold. This summer I practically live in my jeans shorts, which I dress up with a blazer and heels or down with my favourite Miu Miu gladiators and a simple tee. Did I mention that I spent most of the time searching for the perfectly fitting white t-shirt? Sometimes, the simple things are the hardest to find…!

Summer Styles

Summer Styles Carola

Not sure if it’s still the influence of my Milanese summers (all jet-black and dressed up despite a billlllion degrees outside!) or maybe just the fact that summers aren’t what they used to be: the color palette of my favorite summer pieces is clearly not summery…BUT I have a sort of Scottish tan going on so anything brighter than “greige” would just look ridiculous anyways (I figured)!
