Our style and colors’ match is interesting, don’t you think?

Totally Fringed

Proenza Schouler unveiled their new collection of totes out of which the fringed version in aloe green and black really stands out.
My eyes see “waves” of contentment as the fringe trend will stick around for some more since its recent comeback.

Good for my Juicy Couture fringed suede boots I hadn’t worn for a long time.

And I think Rebecca Minkoff’s fringed suede backpack was an excellent choice.

#ootd: Wishes from Seoul

Time flies! A couple of months ago I was basking in the sun of LA and Honolulu whereas for the christmas holidays I traveled eastbound to Seoul, S. Korea and its freezing temperatures. But I love every bit of it!  Like our walk in a park at Songdo.

A treat A day with Moleskine

Yeah!
My new year’s diaries, just arrived in the mail and I simply can’t wait writing on them.

 

This year it was the Little Prince, for 2016 I chose Peanuts… Isn’t it cute?
But to be honest I’m quite intrigued to get my hands on the Starbucks collection which is available in South Korea! Flying to Seoul next week, hopefully before it’s out of stock…

September Obsessions

After spending two months in Greece I’m back with loads of news to share with you and a couple of surprises. But first things first. After all, September is the month of pulling yourself together, getting back to your routine, and planning for the months ahead. In my world, it’s the month of obsessions, it’s when I crave for changes and when I scan all fashion trends in order to make my winter wish-list.

Obsession #1 – Hair Color

All of you who follow me on Instagram (idolimages) you probably already know that I changed my hair a bit into a lovely rose gold color.

IMG_0413

I would be willing to try silver too but I’m so obsessed with the rose-gold after I’ve seen it on myself that I guess this shade is here to stay. If you are after a funky change like myself, I suggest you follow Lihn Phan’s @bescene on Instagram for inspiration. If you’re afraid experimenting with the color of your hair I recommend you try Bleach London or Stargazer semi-permanent colors which only last for a few washes. And then who knows? You might fall in love with your new shade and run straight to your hairstylist to make it stay for as long as you wish.

Obsession #2 – Backpack

One of my surprises involves a trip far far away from my home base which I hope I will be v-logging for you. But since I started planning the trip I realized my wardrobe is missing a traveller’s most basic accessory: the backpack. So I searched..
001_24c83c62-a628-4f70-a5f9-d73605492f6a
Moschino backpack available at luisaviaroma.com for $695
Mmm.., “too preppy”…  so I searched..
11054923_5095256_1000
Michael Kors studded backpack for $358 at Macy’s.
too many studs… and I searched..
chanel
Chanel graffiti backpack available on eBay for around $15,000
GEE! I ain’t gonna spend this much on a backpack despite its beauty!!!
So I ended up being obsessed with Rebecca Minkoff ‘s Julian, available at Bloomingdales for $395 (or BHD 160). It gives the boho impression I was looking for and it’s not as pricey as others.8723485_fpx.tif
But I don’t know whether to buy the leather or the suede version, which takes us to:

Obsession #3 Suede

And by the way, THE TREND for autumn 2015. Apart from my suede booties I love suede pants and suede bags. Suede may be delicate but I love its texture and slouchiness. And here is my Proenza Schouler PS1 pride. Bought from matchesfashion.com  who btw offer free shipping for a limited time! IMG_2686

Obsession #4 Clogs

Talking about suede, another trend coming from the 70’s is invading our wardrobe this season and it’s amazing in suede: Clogs! You can go with the Gucci horsebit-detailed ones in the picture available from Netaporter for $795 or check the much less expensive options from UGG. Screen Shot 2015-09-20 at 11.35.27 AMMy UGGs were quite a deal at $49,99 ! Yes you read correct. Here are my suede perforated clogs for the season:

Obsession #5 Perfume

Chanel Coco Noir. Maybe the most expensive of all Chanel’s perfumes (35 ml at about $125) but let me tell you: it’s pure black magic.

Obsession #6S – I meant iPhone 6S

My tweet at Apple’s last year event was:

You know, my obsession with rose gold dates back in 2013… or even earlier. When iPhone 6s finally arrives in rose gold, how can I ignore it? 14211-9572-iphone6s-spalsh-l

Obsession #7 Camel Coat 

I know it’s kinda early and with the hot weather here my chances wearing a coat are rather low to zero. Maybe that’s why I haven’t bought one yet even if I have been lusting it for the last two years and believe it to be the ultimate winter wardrobe basic. I can still look for one though, right?

So, what are your obsessions for this season?

Parisian Simplicity to the movies

I love simple! Simply because it makes you feel comfortable. To enjoy a good movie you have to feel comfortable, don’t you agree?
